Another Brawl – Real Househusbands of New Jersey / Real Housewives of Orange County / Beverly Hills Reunion / Dancing with the Stars

What the Hell is Wrong with the Househusbands of New Jersey?

It’s that time of year for the season’s brawl party.  Time to TOP the table flip, weave pull, Christening brawl, and Stripper-gate, and keep this franchise on top of the housewives food chain. Kim D held a party Saturday night to launch a second store – Posche 2.  Chris Laurita and Joey Gorga got into it with Johnny the Greek,  according to The Examiner.  Johnny has been wooing Melissa Gorga’s ex-boyfriend – Brian “Bulldog” on twitter, and his wife Penny is rumored to have brought the “Brian Storyline” to the show this year.  The article says that Johnny made a  remark about Chris’s son, Nicholas, a child that has been diagnosed with Autism.  Although the fight was short, Johnny was left bloodied and bruised  after the mayhem.  Johnny denies making any remark about the child, and he has a few choice words to say to Joey and Chris:

Meanwhile, Joe Giudice has said no to yet another plea offer – this time for four year in prison.  At some point they should either drop the charges or get on with the trial.  I seem to remember typing about Joe saying no to a plea offer months ago.  The story is here.

Warning:  The writer of this recap finds it absolutely impossible to write about the RHOC without being totally mean and snarky since there really isn’t anyone in this franchise that has any redeeming qualities. Read at your own risk – although the writer tried hard not to be overly snarky.  Recaps will all most likely contain many colorful cuss words and other totally inappropriate concepts for our young readers cuz that’s how they roll in Orange County.  Let the snarking begin!

Last Season:

Omg… they’re reminding us about what happened last season… Do we really need to go there?  Ugh… okay…Here’s the refresher in case you were able to use bleach on your brain and erase all memory of last season, lucky you:  Vicki found out that her daughter Briana had eloped to Vegas with a guy that Vicki said she barely knew… Briana and Ryan found out that they were pregnant which means Vicki is gonna be a grandma…Vicki also dated the creepiest guy on the earth named Brooks whom her daughter and the rest of the human race did not like or trust whatsoever… Last year’s new girl Heather’s big storyline was that she officially changed her last name to her husband’s name and someone ate an icing bow off her cake…yawn… Tamra got the “Simon” tattoo (her ex-husband) removed from her ring finger so Eddie could put a ring on it – so Eddie was kinda forced to propose to her in Bora Bora… The mean girls (Gretchen, Tamra and Heather) don’t like Alexis and ganged up on her while they were on a trip to Costa Rica… Pigs started flying when Gretchen and Tamra became besties… Gretchen wants Slade to get out of debt so she and Tubba Wubba can move forward in their “happily ever after” life together…

This Season’s Opening Tag Lines:

  • Tamra – “The best thing about starting over is never looking back.”
  • Heather – “Whoever said blondes have more fun hasn’t met me.”
  • Vicki – “I’m my own boss and it’s time for a raise.”
  • Gretchen – “When the going gets tough – I just get stronger and stronger.”
  • Alexis – “I don’t need to prove anything – I know who I am and God does, too.”

Vicki and her assistant are rearranging things in the house in anticipation of the arrival of Vicki’s grandbaby.  Everyone else who was living in the house has moved out and Briana and Ryan have moved in with Vicki.  Briana is so pregnant she’s ready to pop any minute! Since there are no men around to help, Vicki and her assistant decide to move a honkin’ couch from one room to another.  They pause mid-hall to sip on some red wine and then they continue moving the couch. It was such an odd scene.  Vicki says she’s all about renovating her house and her body – it’s just tough to determine which has had more work done.  Vicki went to the same plastic surgeon as Alexis has used in the past and had some cartilage removed from her nose and had some reconstruction done – isn’t that what we call a “nose job?”  She also had fat injected into her cheeks so she won’t have any more wrinkles.  Oh, and she also got a chin implant. Her face is still really puffy from the surgery, so it’s hard to know how she is really going to look like in the end.  Last season, Slade as part of his wannabe comedic stand-up routine, said that Vickie looked like Miss Piggy.  Evidently, this really got Vicki to start thinking about some changes. Vicki says her face is still really numb from the surgery and that it reminds her of one of the Muppets puppets – You know, where the top half of the face doesn’t move but the bottom half does?  Wait… wasn’t Miss Piggy one of the Muppets? So does she want to be a Muppet or not? I’m confused!  Vicki hasn’t told any of the other women about her surgery… She starts whining about how she wishes she had men in her life so they could move her furniture for her.  Cuz yeah, that’s the first thing I think of when I think of having a man in my life.  Vicki’s status in dating Brooks is very unsettled – I’m sure her Facebook relationship status is probably “it’s complicated.” I do know she is drinking a heck of a lot of wine while she whines.

Next we see Heather arriving home and bringing tidings of live lobsters.  She’s planning a clam bake for next weekend and she’s invited everyone but Alexis.  They have to do a taste test to see if they want the lobsters from Australia or the ones from Main. Terry, her husband suggests that they have onion rings at the clam bake.  Heather scrunches up what’s left of her nose at that prospect.  No, they’re not having anything fried at the clam bake, thank you very much.  However, Terry really, really wants some onion rings.  Heather maturely asks her toddler to tell her daddy that he’s not a toddler.  Heather explains that Terry acts like the little brother she never wanted. Wait, did she just say she didn’t want her husband?  They’re having everyone over this weekend and she’s worried about Brooks coming.  But never fear, they’re hiring special security to make sure she doesn’t have any uninvited guests and to make sure that no one eats the icing bow off her cake.  Did I mention that Terry really, really wants onion rings.

Tamra and her kids have moved into Eddie’s house. They are making plans to move forward with the gym they own together, although Tamra owns “controlling” interest 51% and Eddie only owns 49% – and she often reminds him of that. He’s working on some kewl looking business cards on the computer.  Tamra interrupts his work to ask him to help her move some boxes and he does the biggest eye roll – In fact, his whole head almost rolled.  He dutifully gets up but is really not happy about it.  Eddie bitches her out for wearing sneakers as she’s moving stuff up the stairs.  Evidently there’s a rule about not wearing shoes in the house.  He’s also mad that the lights in the kid’s room are on – and I guess there’s a rule about that, too.  He whines that the kids leave the lights on all the time. Umm… Eddie, at the risk of being Captain Obvious, your fiancé is the one who has been moving boxes around with not a kid in sight – so I’m guessing she might have needed to turn on a light or something.  Meanwhile, Tamra is cranky that it is now becoming more and more obvious that Eddie is really controlling and she swears that she’s never going to let another man control her again.  Good thing she’s marrying Eddie – a match made in heaven!  Tamra complains that their whole house is manly and dark and feels like a cave. Sounds like a perfect place for a rabid bat like you to live, Tamra.  She then starts to complain that there are piles of stuff everywhere.  Eddie says is because she’s doing the piling… or maybe he says it’s because she has the piles… I don’t remember… Tamra thinks she’s in charge of the house now.  She tells Eddie that she wants a new washer and dryer and all new furniture. Is that all?

Ooo ooo ooo Vicki’s daughter is having her baby at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach – It’s a really great hospital with a view of the ocean.  Vicki can’t wait to be a nana and she and Briana share a couple of touching moments.  Briana feels like she’s a kid – a kid having a kid… Vicki tells Briana that she’s really proud of her.  Awww… Kumbayah!

Gretchen is meeting Tamra at the Naomy & Adrian boutique and says “ding dong” as she walks in just like the ding dong she is.  Tamra receives a phone call from Heather letting her know that Vicki called her to alert her that Briana has gone into labor.  Gretchen and Tamra cackle together about Vicki becoming a grandmother.  After Tamra confirmed that it was Vicki herself that called Heather to tell her about the labor – She smirked her evil smirky smile.  Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away Vicki would have called Tamra directly. Then Heather has the audacity to suggest that Tamra send Vicki a text to tell her that she knows about the labor and that she’s thinking about her – Heather is just sure that Vicki would want to know that (cough, cough) – Tamra dryly says that she will send Briana a text… In her talking head, Tamra says that last year she would have been Vicki’s first call – then calls her “bitch” but obviously, she was merely referring to herself.  Evidently, Tamra hasn’t been talking to Vicki ever since she got the nastiest email from her blaming Tamra for everything including giving her the evil eye. Whoa, the evil eye?  Say it ain’t so!  Gretchen confirms that’s what Vicki does… Flash to the reunion show when Vicki is saying that Tamra was dating Eddie back while she was still married.  Oh… so that’s why Tamra is mad at her?  In the email, Vicki evidently told Tamra that she degraded Vicki, that Tamra is a horrible person, and that Eddy is going to leave her one day… Gretchen asks if Tamra wants to make up with her?  Tamra wants nothing to do with her.  Gretchen snidely asks Tamra if she’s talked to Alexis & Jim… Puhleeze, as if!  The last thing Tamra heard from them was that they wanted to sue her for calling Alexis “Jesus Jugs.” Okay, if we’re going to have another threat of a lawsuit, kill me now (KMN). Then Tamra says that Alexis has been telling everyone that she thought they were bullying her and that they’re horrible people.  Tamra tried to explain to us all that when you’re sitting in a group of people and every single one of them is telling you something about yourself that’s not good – that’s not what a bully is.  Perhaps not, but it was a mean girl, bitchy, gang up on the weak elk that’s been separated from the herd kind of move. The mean girls were telling Alexis that she was materialistic and pretentious. Umm… really?  And this is coming from:  Tamra, who insisted her fiancé buy all new furniture even though they’re planning a wedding and launching a new business; Gretchen, who begged her dying boyfriend to buy her a pink motorcycle; and Heather, who almost had an aneurism about someone eating a bow off a cake. (I know I’m mentioning the bow a lot right now – I’m sorry, I just can’t get over it) – … Tamra thinks Alexis should have sat back and said to herself, “Gee, why is everyone saying that?  It must be true”  Gretchen gets on her high horse stands up on her bully pulpit and says that Alexis is a grown woman – they weren’t beating her to death in Costa Rica – that there are kids who are really getting bullied and are getting beaten up so badly that they commit suicide.  Gretchen thinks that Alexis strategically attached her name to the term “bullying” cuz it’s such a hot topic in this country.  But really, is Alexis really capable of doing anything strategically?  Gretchen believes Alexis is playing the victim card by saying she’s been bullied just so she would get sympathy.  Gretchen preaches that she was being a “true” friend and doing right by her by telling Alexis the truth and then she gets called a bully. Poor widdle Gwetchen!   Right now her friendship with Alexis is nothing – she doesn’t talk to her she doesn’t want to talk to her.  Gretchen doesn’t wish to have Alexis as part of her life anymore. Tamra hopes that Alexis knows that Jesus doesn’t like liars and that lying is a sin.  Tamra says she doesn’t know who Alexis gets down on her knees for – but it isn’t Jesus. (I’m really, really sorry to have typed that – but that’s exactly what she said… and no, she didn’t burst into flames, yet… we can only hope!) Tamra doesn’t know if Heather is inviting Alexis to the clam bake or not – but if she does, she will be invisible to her – Invisible Jesus Barbie. How 2nd grade of her – I wonder if Tamra has invisible spray… cuz I know who I’d like to use it on…

Brianna z a MomAfter being in labor for over 14 hours the contractions stopped and Briana finds out she has to have an emergency C-section.  When Vicki sees baby Troy for the first time, it reminds her of seeing Michael and Brianna for the first time – and it was pretty special.  Briana is Vicki’s best friend and her everything – Vicki would rather spend time with Briana than anyone else on earth.  Baby TroyThey include a flashback to several years ago when Vicki and Briana were walking along the beach and Briana was talking about being in nursing school.  She was so excited about being able to see babies being delivered.  Briana and Ryan’s baby – Troy William was born on September 28, 2012 and weighed 7 lbs. and 11 oz. and measured 20 inches.

Gretchen is feebly attempting to make coffee in a very cute single serve red and white polka dot coffee mug.  Slade has finally gotten a job as a radio host.  She calls Slade to ask how to make coffee.  Slade answers the phone in his radio voice and of course Gretchen has to demean him by saying, “Chipper party of 1.” Although in all fairness, she obviously hadn’t had her morning coffee.  Gretchen - coffeeShe whines about how Slade’s job has gotten in the way of her important morning routine like making coffee.  She continues to whine that she now has to handle a whole lot more stuff about her company – like taking care of marketing, etc. – because Slade used to do it – but now he’s gainfully employed so he can stop being a deadbeat dad and finally pitch in to help with his son’s mounting medical bills.  She really didn’t say all of that – the writer used creative license.  Gretchen muses about who wouldn’t want to be her bitch?  Fortunately, she’s hired an unsuspecting assistant to help out.

Alexis-Craft timeAlexis has a cute new hairdo.  She and Jim bought a bright shiny new house and she’s happy they’re not renting anymore.  It’s craft time with the kids!  Goodie!  Alexis is getting rid of all the dead weight in her life.  So why did she come back this season, again?  Alexis wants to decorate the house how she wants it to be decorated – and she has an issue with a couple of pieces of sculptural art that Jim has on display.  Both are of scantily clad women.  In a snotty, smug voice he demeaningly asks her to tell him what she knows about art.  She explains that while she doesn’t know a lot about art she does know that she has a 6 year old son and she doesn’t want him to see the art.  Jim tries to make the point that the sculpture actually has on a floor-length dress – and that Alexis actually wears less clothes than the statue.  Alexis tries to make us believe that she and Jim are in a really great place right now.  Well, it’s because Alexis caved into Jim and let the caveman have his way.  She is now chained to the kitchen and is taking care of the kids.  Alexis attempts to pretend she made some business changes because last year she spread herself way too thin.  She’s made some changes like pulling way back on “Alexis Couture” and she’s not newscasting with Fox 5 anymore (and if anyone believes that she didn’t get fired, well, I have some swampland to sell you) She then tells Jim that she got a call from Vicki telling her that Heather is having a clam bake and Vicki asked if she was going.  Alexis told her she wasn’t invited.  Jim has no idea how Alexis could stand to be around that group of women.  Alexis really believes that she was bullied in Costa Rica by Gretchen, Tamra and Heather. Alexis thinks they can use whatever words they want to use – attacking, ganging up, etc. – but Alexis believes she was definitely a victim of bullying.  She’s not ready to see them again – not yet, anyway.  Jim wants her to surround herself with positive women who will lift her up and that is the antithesis of what the housewives were to her last year.  He told her that they tore her down in a group like a pack of wolves.  So yeah, why did she come back this year, again?  Alexis tells us that bullying someone is “to intentionally or habitually be cruel to a weaker person.”  She explains that she’s weaker because there’s only one of her (against the other 3) and because she’s never going to be on the same playing field as they are.  Huh?  Alexis is really shocked that Heather’s acting career didn’t go better because she’s really good at switching from being really nice to being really mean. Oh, snap! Alexis says that Gretchen isn’t the same person anymore – and she thinks it’s because Tamra has influenced her too much.  Alexis and Jim don’t understand why people need to fight… why can’t they just love?  Umm… because this is Bravo, and drama is mandated, duh!

Clam BakeHeather’s getting ready for the big clam bake.  She loves her new pool that takes up a good portion of their back yard now – but she hopes no one ends up in it tonight.  The table is fancy schmanzy – just like normal clam bakes, no?  Heather revels in her chair fit for a queen – while all the others are just fit for townspeople.  Rut roh… emergency!  There are no candles!  The guy that’s

Heather Sucks Yos Lemons

helping her looks panicked as she’s demanding the candles that they talked about when they were planning the event.  Ohmygosh, the glass beachy centerpieces sit way too high.  Horrors!  Okay, it’s broad daylight right now… yep… candles are exactly what you need.  Heather acknowledges she might have a lil issue with micro-managing things.  Oh wait, I get it – it’s not a beach themed clam bake – it’s a Beyotch themed clam bake! Terry looks at the seating assignments and wonders why she has seated Vicki and Tamra across from each other.  Terry then suggests heating the pool in case this party takes a turn for the worst…

**Commercial break** Okay, there’s this hot guy hawking Kraft Zesty Italian dressing while flipping a table in true Real Housewives of New Jersey fashion… He’s a HGMWLF for sure! (hot guy Marisa would love to f*** – Sorry, I still have RHOBH on my mind… lol)  He asks us if we follow all the rules cuz he sure doesn’t… then he says, “Let’s get zesty”… okay, back to our show…

Eddie and Tamra are in a limo on their way to pick up Gretchen.  Tamra says her stomach hurts because she’s afraid to see Vicki.  Eddie asks her if she’s afraid of her and Tamra says she is…Eddie wonders why… and Tamra explains that it’s because Vicki’s mean and she’s loud and it’s always everyone else’s fault. Eddie thinks that Vicki is all bark… but Tamra thought she was going to bite her the last time she saw her (insert gratuitous eye roll here).

Vicki - MirrorVicki is getting ready for the clam bake and the cutest pudgiest pug is sprawled on his tummy on her nice tapestry couch which seems to be okay with Vicki.  For the first time, Vicki is going alone to a housewives’ social event and she’s really anxious about it.  She’s nervous because her face is still swollen from the surgery and she’s about to walk into a den of vipers.  Vicki decides she is going to own what she did to herself – it’s her body, her choice, her money – and frankly my dear, it’s none of their business. Vicki, evidently you haven’t met Tamra, Gretchen and Heather!

Tamra and Gretchen react to seeing Vicki's new face

Tamra and Gretchen react to seeing Vicki’s new face

Gretchen and Tamra are wearing cute matching twin outfits – white pants with pinkish/coralish colored tops. Awww, isn’t that just so precious? Tamra shows a recent pic of Vicki to Gretchen and they start laughing because they know that she had to have some plastic surgery done.  Gretchen starts mocking Vicki by recalling how Vicki was so proud of how she looked and used to point at her own face and say that it was her God-given face and that she has her dad’s nose – thus implying that she would never want to do anything to change it.  We then see old footage of when Vicki is telling the girls that she’s sorry that she doesn’t look as pretty as they want her to look but that her mom and dad think she’s beautiful.  Tamra thinks she looks like Jim (Alexis’ husband) implying that she obviously got the same chin implant as he did.  Gretchen says in her talking head that if Vicki says she got plastic surgery because Slade made fun of her looks – that she’d kill a bitch.  I thought the term was cut a bitch, no?

Back at the Crab Shack, Terry and Heather are talking to the chef about the final menu for the night – It looks like they’re having Main lobsters… steamers… steak… fresh corn… new potatoes and green beans… Terry asks why they’re not having onion rings.  Heather explains that he really doesn’t want onion rings – he just wants to push her buttons.  Actually, I think the man wants onion rings.

In the limo on the way to the Clam Bake, Gretchen asks Tamra if she’s gonna go up and hug Vicki when she sees her… Eddie says she’d first have to be able to recognize her… Oh, snap!  Tamra says that she can ask Vicki to please raise her hand so she can find her… Oh gosh, isn’t that just the funniest thing you’ve ever heard?  Everyone is very dressed up for this very exclusive “Clam Bake”… except for Eddie who is wearing an old pair of jeans and a very plain white T shirt. Nice effort, Eddie!  Although, in fairness, Eddie is wearing what I would envision you wear to a real clam bake.  But this IS Orange County, after all…

After reading their destination, they all skip arm and arm up to Heather and Terry’s front door.  They have to get past two burly security guards flanking the front door ready to take down anyone who looks like they’d dare to eat a bow off of Heather’s cake.

Gretchen in a shining moment of sheer stupidity wonders aloud why anyone would name a dinner like this a “clam bake.” After all, as her rock solid reasoning concludes, when she cooks a ham she doesn’t call it a “ham off.”  Oh wait… was she trying to be funny? It’s hard to tell, what with that wind tunnel in between her ears and all…

Tamra, Gretchen and Heather walk out on the lawn to look at the table and to see the seating arrangements.  I mean there’s all of like 12 people going to be at this dinner… must we have assigned seating?  Gretchen has a conniption fit that she’s seated next to Vicki and not next to Tamra!  Heather clues in the girls that Vicki just broke up with Brooks.  Tamra and Gretchen immediately say that it’s a lie… Gretchen thinks that Vicki only pretended to break up with Brooks so that they wouldn’t beat up on him.  Yes, cuz it’s oh so pleasant to bring your boyfriend to events where your so-called friends verbally attack him every chance they get.  Ohmygosh… they have me defending Brooks… dagnabit – make it stop!

Stepford Wives Kinda

Stepford Wives Kinda

Gretchen warns them that if Vicki eats her for dinner they can’t be upset. Gretchen thinks that if you have to hide the person that supposedly you’re so in love with and is an amazingly wonderful man – then you’re basically admitting that everybody else is right.  Huh? I’m not even going to try to understand that logic…  Heather is taking it all at face value – she doesn’t see why Vicki would lie about it.  She does say that the only hinky thing is that Terry had drinks with Brooks just a couple of weeks ago – and everything seemed hunky dory at that point.  Terry actually said “honky dory” but come on – let’s get the phrase right.  Tamra assures us that her thoughts of Brooks have not changed.  The only thing she can think of is that the guy was conceived anally because he’s the biggest a**hole she knows.  Tamra is calling “bulls***” in her obnoxious operatic voice.

**Commercial break** Hot zesty Kraft Italian dressing guy is back… and he wants to make a salad…he asks us how zesty do you want it?  He’s squirting Italian dressing into a sauté pan… “A little more?  A little more?” he asks.  With each squirt, the flame gets higher and higher until it conveniently burns off his shirt. He says, “Let’s get zesty.” And somewhere in the 90210, Marisa fans herself.  Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Vicki arrives at the den of vipers.  Tamra hasn’t seen Vicki in 7 months… She wonders who is going to say hi first? Are you kidding me?  How juvenile can we be? Oh right, we ARE talking about Tamra and Vicki.  Tamra just hopes the bitch is nice otherwise she’ll have wine in her face… Gretchen encourages Tamra to be cordial… As Vicki walks out to the designated clam bake area, Tamra, obviously rightfully afraid for her life, pleads with Gretchen to not leave her side… whew, end of episode…oh, but wait…

Oh joy… They show quick, unrelated snippets of what we can look forward to in this season of Real Housewives of Orange County:  Tamra touching a male stripper’s “down there” area… snow angels… Tamra sticking out her tongue on an icicle and getting stuck (Seriously, has she never seen “A Christmas Story” or “My Best Friend’s Wedding?”)… Gretchen and Slade are trying to conceive… (Oh nooooo….they’re procreating)  Jim and Alexis take dancing classes… Since the new girl is friends with Alexis – Heather immediately knows she’s not her kind of people cuz she’s nice like that… Tamra is pressuring Eddie to set a wedding date and she thinks that if he didn’t want to get married he shouldn’t have asked her – or – maybe it’s because he knows you’re a whiney bitch – or – that he swings a very different way, allegedly… Vicki asks Brooks if they’re dating or not dating…together or not together… Heather calls Terry a jerk and then slams what looks like their bedroom door…  Laurie from season 1 comes back into the fold… Vicki threatens to scratch the eyeballs out of someone’s head – it could be Laurie but I’m not sure… there’s a scene of Alexis in a limo complaining to Lydia, the new girl, that she’s being bullied.  Lydia is saying that she doesn’t think she’s being bullied but Alexis explains that she had to go on Xanax because of it… Heather tells Slade, “You know what the correct response is right now?  You know, ‘I’m sorry?’”…  Vicki tells Briana that she misses Brooks and so they are going to continue dating… Briana tells her mom that if she wants Brooks to come stay at the house that like it’s totally cool – but she won’t live there if that happens.  Ryan tells Vicki that if you act like a bitch, then you are a bitch…Vicki’s mouth is gaping open… Lydia tells Gretchen that dirty is dirty is dirty – you’re dirty… Vicki screams at Gretchen, “Don’t you get it? You’re a woman!”  Gretchen says, “Why would I lie about that?”  Tamra responds that she doesn’t know.  While at a dinner table, Alexis tells Tamra to butt out… Tamra goes ballistic… “Butt out? You get the fuck out!”  This is such a nice cast, isn’t it?  KMN

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 2 by BB

The second part of the reunion starts out with a continuation of the conversation about who’s lying about what Yolanda said about Lisa on the Paris trip.  Kyle has a problem with what Yolanda says in her blogs compared to what she says to her in person.  Kyle asks Yolanda who should she believe?  Yolanda just laughs and tells Kyle she never looks in her face anyway and asks what she’s talking about. Conversation over.

Andy asks Lisa if she thinks Yolanda said she was full of shit at the airport.  Lisa says she doesn’t believe it.  Kim looks incredulous at Lisa and says she has no reason to lie to Lisa.  Kyle says nothing.  Andy asks Lisa if she thinks Kyle is kind of a liar.  Lisa says she not saying Kyle is a liar but she’s not sure she believes it happened the way they say it did.  Kyle says she may be many things, but she’s not a liar.

Andy asks Lisa who she trusts the most of the ladies present.  She says she’s not as close to Kim but she’s very supportive of her.  She trusts Brandi with her life.  She thinks Brandi throws things at her and she throws them right back at Brandi, like she had such a go at her this week.  And to be honest she trusts Yolanda because it comes from a history and it’s a quiet trust.  She thinks Taylor will tell her everything to her face, but Kyle she’s had issues with, and shrugs.  Andy says, “so Kyle’s not in your top two.”  Lisa says no, but she does love Kyle.  She’s just done too many things behind her back for her to have a trust with her.  Andy asks Kyle what she thinks the future of her friendship with Lisa will be.  Kyle says to be honest, she feels like it’s in Lisa hands.  It hurts her feelings that Lisa trusts Yolanda over her.  Lisa makes a distinction between the way Yolanda may or may not talk about women and the way Kyle has.  That’s her opinion.  Kyle’s response is maybe Lisa needs more time, she doesn’t know.  Kyle still doesn’t seem to get what Lisa’s definition is of a true friendship.

The next topic is about the end of Paul and Adrienne’s marriage.  Several scenes are shown of Adrienne constantly putting Paul down and ends with Adrienne crashing Lisa’s vow renewal party.  Andy is surprised they split up.  Kyle says she is too.  She thought they were cute together.  Lisa reveals Paul moved out a few times the first season but never said anything.  Adrienne stated in the press Brandi destroyed her family and her sudden friendship with Paul is an act of vindictiveness.  Brandi says she doesn’t have a close relationship with Paul, they are cordial.  Brandi says they all know she’s not responsible for their marriage breakup, at least she does.  Andy asks Brandi about her comment that their marriage was a business relationship.  Brandi says the only time she ever saw the two kiss, in Hawaii, it was very uncomfortable and she felt sorry for them.  Kyle was very shocked when she heard Adrienne was dating Rod Stewart’s son. She’s known him since he was a baby.   Brandi has had dinner with him and thinks he’s a lovely person, but thinks the matchup is just an odd coupling.

Radaronline reported Chef Bernie published pictures of a bruised Adrienne on his facebook page, accusing Paul of beating her.  Kyle never saw any indication of any type of abuse in that family and thinks Bernie did it for attention.  Lisa thinks Adrienne obviously condoned it because she didn’t publicly deny the Radaronline story.  She kept silent which to Lisa speaks volumes.    None of the women believe Paul would ever be abusive to his wife or kids.  Lisa says just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not true, but domestic violence was a pivotal conversation the whole of season two and the evidence doesn’t make sense.  Taylor says Adrienne never confided in her that any type of domestic abuse was going on with them.  The fact that she didn’t get any support from Adrienne until her black eye made Taylor lose respect for her.

The next segment is about the continuing never-ending issues between Kim and Kyle and how they haven’t been getting along even with Kim sober.  Many scenes from the season are shown with Kim acting weird and kooky.  Brandi even says at one point she doesn’t think they like each other.  Kim says she and Kyle still have a lot of work to do.  She was hurt by some of the stuff she saw watching the season and what Kyle said.  Kyle didn’t realize how highly sensitive Kim was during the season, but she does now.  Kim doesn’t understand some of the things Kyle says when they are not together, like she isn’t sure if Kim is sober.  Kim is fighting for her life (Kim really needs to go back to rehab for more work).  Kim points to Yolanda and tells her it hurts when Yolanda asks Kim if she remembers things.

Kim claims she remembers everything about the season. (I personally think Kim learned a lot about the season from watching it on TV along with the rest of us.)  Kim calls Yolanda out about her using excuses, like being Dutch, her disease, etc.  Yolanda says she stands behind everything she’s said and to not bring her disease into it.  Kim says Yolanda herself has brought her disease into it.  Kim admits Yolanda was really kind and helpful to her during Paris.  I guess it’s OK for Kim to blame everything on her disease, but it’s not OK for Yolanda to mention her disease.

Brandi jumps into defend Yolanda by telling Kim Yolanda carried her shitty pillow and bag through the airport for her and wonders why Kim is attacking her for being so nice to her.  Kim tells Brandi she doesn’t have to jump in and get nasty and mean with her when she’s just having a conversation with Yolanda and asks her if this is what she did to Adrienne.  Jump in and get all mean.  That’s what Brandi does to people.  Jumps in and is a mean, naughty little girl.

Andy asks Brandi about her comment about Kim and Kyle not liking each other.  She tries
to explain that comment by saying families should protect each other instead of doubting each other.  Kyle tells Brandi she doesn’t know their history and Lisa agrees that Kyle has been through so much that when she gets a hint that something may be off with Kim, like in Paris, she understandably gets concerned.  Kim says Kyle knew what was going on in Paris.  Kyle and Lisa both said they knew it wasn’t alcohol, but they knew something wasn’t right.

BH1Kim calls Lisa out about acting like she was concerned and then kind of joking about it with others.  Lisa and Kim disagree about whether Kim was lucid in Paris.  Kyle is just rolling her eyes.  Andy then asks Brandi about her saying that certain people want to see Kim fail. Here comes the bomb.  Brandi says she feels that Kyle was always doubting Kim’s sobriety and she almost feels like it would make her happy if she failed.  Taylor audibly gasps.  Kim’s eyes get really big.  Andy looks at Kyle almost gleefully awaiting her response.

BH2Kyle tells Brandi she knows nothing about what has gone on with her sister or their history.  She spent every effing night of her life saying a prayer to God to keep her sister sober; first to get her sober and then to keep her sober.  She tells Brandi that is the meanest thing she can say.  Big hair flip and wiping tears with fingers.

Taylor tells Brandi they’ve been living that for half of their lives.  Brandi says she’s not trying to hurt Kyle, but that’s how it’s coming across to her.  Andy asks Kim how she feels about it.  Taylor looks at Kim and says “You know your sister supports you and loves you and wants you to be sober and be happy.  She’s spent half of her life taking care of you and helping you (while Kim is stroking her hair continuously).” bh8 Kim says she doesn’t have it in her to fail again and this is her last shot.  If she relapsed again, she doesn’t think she would make it, she doesn’t think her body could take it.  At this point, Kyle and Lisa exchange places.  Kyle sits down and adjusts her hair and makes sure she will look her best while she has a heart to heart with her sis.  Kim looks at Kyle and tells her that for her to say she was not acting sober was so wrong.  Kyle says whatever the wording was, Kim was not herself but she knew it wasn’t alcohol.

bh6Lisa says when Kyle uses the word “sober” it does resonate and probably hurts Kim.  Kyle uses the “things come out wrong sometimes” excuse while she’s flipping her hair (an excuse she uses for a lot of things).  They finally come to an agreement that the word “sober” is a strong word and Kyle shouldn’t use it cavalierly.  Can we please move on?  Brandi apologizes.

I’m not saying anything about the next segment about the women’s life in Beverly Hills because I don’t really care.  We’ve all seen it this season.  It’s why I watch this franchise.  I like to see their extravagant lives.

bh5Ken, Mo and Giggy have joined the group.  David is working on a project with Stevie Wonder.  Andy gives Mauricio a chance to give a big plug to his new realty business, the Agency.  Thanks Andy.

Paul has a separate interview and he says his parents had a dysfunctional marriage and he wishes they would have divorced years earlier.  The only thing he cares about are his kids and his practice.  Paul says he does not blame Brandi for his split with Adrienne.  He blames her for making comments that were hurtful.  What she did was wrong, she apologized for it and when they see each other, it’s cordial.  Paul would have preferred for things to have been kept more private.  Will he ever be on the show again?  He will never say never.  If one of the ladies needs emergency plastic surgery, he’s there.  Mauricio says Paul is doing great now, like they are still the best of friends. Ken didn’t believe the allegations against Paul at all.  If it were true there is no way Adrienne would give shared custody of her kids to Paul; at least Ken wouldn’t have if it had been him.

bh7Mauricio says he is working with Adrienne to find her a new place and had just left her a message that day.  Andy is being too nice to Mauricio for some reason and asks him how difficult it is to navigate being friends and also doing business within the group.  He says it’s somewhat challenging sometimes but he lives by the philosophy that a fish gets caught by its mouth and he doesn’t like to get caught so he keeps his mouth shut.  Seems to me he ran his mouth a lot this season. Andy confirms it when he tells Mauricio he didn’t keep his mouth shut this season.  Footage of Ken, Paul and Mauricio getting into the action.

bh11Mauricio doesn’t regret what he said to Brandi that night in the restaurant.  Mauricio is trying to make everyone believe he was trying to give Brandi advice that night.  Brandi says he shouldn’t have spoken to her like he did.  Kyle says she has only seen Mauricio that way a few times in the years she’s known him.  So which is it?  Was Mauricio over the top like Kyle is kind of admitting, or was Mauricio the calm mediator like he himself is claiming?  Brandi says he was yelling at her across a restaurant and acting aggressively towards her.  He apologizes if he made her feel that way but they just had two different opinions.

BH3Here comes some real side-stepping, double-talk from Mauricio in my opinion.  Andy brings up the fact that Adrienne and Paul were clients of Mauricio’s at the time and that had to have partly impacted his defense of them.  Mauricio thinks he was able to look at it from two different perspectives.  Lisa chimes in and says “Yeah, but you’re a businessman and you know that if there’s a possibility of representing them or selling their house, then you’re going to nurture that relationship.”  Mauricio says with a straight face, “Actually I wouldn’t do that.”  Kyle says Lisa is implying that Mauricio’s defense of them is because of the business relationship.  Lisa says a little, yeah.  Kyle says nobody is disputing Brandi was wrong including Brandi.

Brandi asks them if they were close to Adrienne and Paul before then.  Kyle says they were closer to Paul and Mauricio is looking all perplexed like they’ve been friends for years.  Brandi says they all of a sudden became close friends with them when Brandi became their enemy.  Mauricio says none of them have any idea about any of this stuff.  They (he and Kyle I guess) had no idea Paul and Adrienne wanted to sell their house.  Lisa says they had been talking about selling their house the same time Lisa and Ken sold theirs.  A guy who looked at Ken and Lisa’s house also looked at Adrienne and Paul’s house at the same time.  Mauricio even set it up because that’s what he does.  Mauricio is claiming the only time he worked on selling their house was after they separated.  Lisa finds it strange that she knew more than Mauricio did about Adrienne and Paul wanting to sell their house.  I find it strange too since Kyle and Mauricio were such good friends with them, much closer than Lisa was with them.

Mauricio says there are only a few people in the world who can separate business relationships from friendships and he’s one of them.  That’s why when Kyle was having trouble with Camille in season one, Mauricio told her to fix it and couldn’t keep himself from fawning all over Camille whenever he saw her.

bh9Mauricio gets confused when Andy asks about him dropping people as friends after he gets his commission from selling their houses.  He says he’s still “working” with Adrienne and Paul and that Paul’s nephew now works for the Agency.  As far as Lisa and Ken, he’s never dropped them and he would love to “work” with them.  Andy and Ken have to clarify to Mauricio that they are talking about a social relationship, not a business relationship.  Mauricio thinks what happened between Lisa and Kyle is what hurt that relationship and has nothing to do with him.  Obviously friendship to Mauricio and Kyle is totally different than what friendship is to Lisa and Ken.  I would pick Ken and Lisa as friends in a heartbeat over Kyle and Mauricio.

Andy asks each lady about their experience this past season.

Yolanda says it feels great to have made it through, even if she’s a little bit amazed at what she’s heard at the reunion.  She’s going to take it home and digest it.

Brandi feels very blessed at the friendships she’s made.  She has two lifelong friends in Yolanda and Lisa and she actually likes the rest of them a little bit. So she looks forward to exploring that more and she’s excited they can have fun together.

Kyle says all the women there are beautiful and smart and strong and they all have their moments at times, but she hopes after a day like that where they’ve said things and some of them have had their feelings hurt and been angry that, hopefully, it clears the air a little bit and they can leave today stronger and in a better place eventually.  Whew.  Talk about a run-on sentence.

Taylor says she’s closed a big chapter in her life and a new one is opening for her and the girls have become like family to her through everything and she looks forward to sharing it all with them.

It meant everything to Kim to get through the season sober and it was huge.  Her children and sisters were a huge part of it.  She loves being sober and having all of them in her life. She’s just super grateful she made it through the year.

Lisa thinks the day has been incredibly cathartic and she really loves all of these women.  They’ve had their ups and downs and it’s a lesson to them all to embrace the moment and support each other.

BH10They all have a drink of champagne (except Kim) and they all talk about nobody remembering being in Amsterdam.

Other than Andy handing out t-shirts with the ladies’ tag lines on them, that about it.  There is one more episode of lost footage and then it’s so long to the Beverly Hills ladies for a little while.

Dancing with the Stars Recap by Lisette

Good Morning,

Welcome to Prom Night!

The night starts with a group prom dance to allow the audience to vote for prom Queen and King.  The winner or winners will receive two extra points.  Very freestyle and much fun!  Everyone basically lets very loose and Aly broke out the gymnastics.  Really cute opening number choreographed by Louis van Amstel.  No judging from the judges thank God!

Now onto the dances!

Alexandra & Mark – Viennese Waltz  – Score 23

  • CAI – 7
  • LG – 8
  • BT – 8

Aly’s pre-dance montage touches on her prom by showing pics of her with her date.  Cutie patooties both of them!  Then the usual struggle highlights, frustration montage if you will and on to the dance…Very nice dance!  Smooth and the rhythm flowed nicely.  Len starts the night off with boos by saying he’s not impressed and then he goes APRIL FOOLS!  Oh Len!  Bruno was swept away and Carrie Ann liked it as well but wants her to stay in character.  The men disagree with her and bickering ensues.

OMG!  They are showing prom photos from the hosts!  Tom was a ham even way back then (70s!).

Andy & Sharna – Cha Cha – Score 18
CAI – 6
LG – 6
BT – 6

Andy’s pre-dance montage is a little scary.  I feel like Andy is too fragile for this show.  Hope it goes well for him.  Now the dance…Sharna is looking hot in a one piece cat suit!  The dance meanwhile was a hot mess.  The Cha Cha was not for Andy.  His steps were off and his coordination was lacking.  The judges like him and they are appreciating that he tries.  Bruno says he brings the entertainment, Carrie Ann likes that he tries and Len says he’s happier after seeing him dance but his scores might not reflect that.  I guess Andy doesn’t have family in the audience.  Yvette Nicole Brown (Community on NBC) was rooting him on tonight but they panned to the RHBH cast in the audience first.  Weird.  LipsMcGee, Maury, Brandy and Kim are in the audience with VileKyle.  Those lips on Taylor are horrific in HD.

Ingo & Kym – Paso Doble – Score 21
CAI – 7
LG – 7
BT – 7

General Hospital in the house to cheer on Ingo!  Good Lord Vanessa Marcil does not age!  Pre-dance montage Ingo & Kym discuss how he’s in the middle of the pack and what can they do to shine.  Now an aches and pains montage.  Ingo is 42 after all!  LOL!  On to the dance…Ingo rides in on a motorcycle and glitter helmet.  Definite improvement in his dancing this week.  Bruno is going nuts!  Carrie Ann thinks he captured the passion of the dance but his core is weak and she suggests he work on that for next week.  I agree with her.  Len liked how he came out and attacked, arms need work but he liked it.  Bruno is out of his seat and all a flutter!  He agrees with the other two.  Refinement in the shape is needed but otherwise good effort.  Backstage interview he shouts out GH.  He’s been on the show for 18 years?!  Wowza!

Lisa & Gleb – Viennese Waltz  – Score 21
CAI – 7
LG – 7
BT – 7

Pre-dance montage touches on they don’t have the votes due to Gleb having no followers.  Lisa says he should go naked on a billboard…I second, third and fourth that idea!  LOL!  On to the dance…It was nice but she missed a lot of hand connections (apparently called passes).  Len said it was better but not great.  Bruno was more generous but had some constructive criticism.  Carrie Ann like it and said she liked looking at the two of them but Lisa needs to stay in character as well.  Ken and Pandy were in the audience too!

Kellie & Derek – Jive – Score 25
CAI – 8
LG – 9 !!!!!
BT – 8

Pre-dance montage focuses on how quick and hard the jive is.  Kellie says when Derek gets upset he gets the wasp face…yeah he kinda does…LOL!  On to the dance…DANG!  Derek makes the best entrance EVAH!  He slides in on his feet from the top of the stairs!  The jive is fast and good.  Derek can really choreograph a dance!  I think Kellie has a few missteps but by far the best of the night!  Bruno called her sharper than a Samurai sword!  Carrie Ann called it ridiculously amazing!  Len said she was flying around like a wasp at a picnic (Anglo-ism?) and called her the Queen of the Prom!

Victor & Lindsay – Contemporary – Score 23
CAI – 8
LG – 7
BT – 8

Pre-dance montage starts with how hard being in bottom two was.  Touch on how hardscrabble Victor’s life was.  This dance plays to his strengths.  On to the dance…the dance has a lot of lifts.  Victor is very strong!  He doesn’t do much dancing but most of his movements are smooth.  The judges are in shock!  Carrie Ann calls him a dancer and the dance was breathtaking.  Len was pleasantly surprised.  He liked the lifts but Victor should work on the dance.  Bruno calls him a dancer and said Victor made his partner (Lindsay) proud.  I think they panned to his family in the audience and they were very proud or very excited audience members.

DL & Cheryl – Salsa – Score 16
CAI – 6
LG – 5
BT – 5

Pre-dance montage starts with DL’s surprise about not being in the bottom two.  Then he goes on about how he didn’t graduate high school but did rent himself as a prom date for $25.  I think he’s joking.  On to the dance…the dance was entertaining but not really much salsa going on.  Basically Cheryl danced around him while he moved his hips sporadically.  They also danced on a raised platform.  Len starts off with a diss.  They danced to Sex Machine so Len goes if you’re a sex machine then I’m America’s next top model…cue the boos…Len says there was no salsa.  Bruno appreciates the effort but what he danced wasn’t a salsa.  The hip movements looked like he had a hip replacement not smooth moves of salsa.  Carrie Ann is more generous and said she sees improvement.  She said she knows its hard to dance on top of the box.  Tom allows DL to respond to judges and DL says he can’t move his hips like that cause every time he does he produces a kid and kids make him think of child support…LOL!  I can’t help but sense anger from DL when the judges diss him.  I hope he doesn’t take it out on Cheryl.  Poor girl is trying.

Jacoby & Karina – Rhumba – Score 24
CAI – 8
LG – 8
BT – 8

Pre-dance montage, Jacoby was kicked out of his prom for pranks.  Not surprised.  Then he touches on how his high school and home were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and he’s dancing for the school.  On to the dance…Jacoby’s shirtless…good start!  He’s quite graceful for being so tall.  The dance is beautiful and I love the way he can pick Karina up by one arm like she’s a 3 lb bag of feathers.  His momma loved the dance judging by the way she’s jumping up and down!  Bruno is out of his seat!  He loved it just wanted him to watch his foot placement.  Carrie Ann is impressed with his artistry and musicality.  She calls it hot, sensual and artistic!  I agree.  Len is shocked but how refined the dance was and the quality of movement.  He says good job!  Show Momma jumping up and down some more!  I love her enthusiasm for her baby!

Wynonna & Tony – Samba – Score 15
CAI – 5
LG – 5
BT – 5

Pre-dance montage focuses on how Wynonna is going to rock it.  Cameo appearance by Def Leppard!  On to the dance…A bit of a hot mess as well.  I like Wynonna but homefry needs to move it a little bit more.  She poses a lot but not much dancing going on.  Carrie Ann says she asked for wild and got wild hair and clothes but the dance a whisper.  Len said she’s like Mt. Rushmore, looks good but doesn’t move.  He said he didn’t want to be mean cause he knows how hard it is and Tony yelled back “no you don’t”.  That comment was a bit mean.  Bruno gets out of his chair and starts gyrating and telling Wynonna he wanted her to move like that but her dance was a bit sedated.  She needs to hit it hard darling.  Tony whispers to Wynonna asking her if she’s OK and she’s tells him she is.  She’s gracious in her backstage interview.  Admits she’s a singer not a dancer.  Hard night for these two.

Sean & Peta – Cha Cha – Score 21
CAI – 7
LG – 7
BT – 7

Pre-dance montage shows his prom pics, has to please Len and awkward dance moves.  On to the dance…Sean looked very awkward to me.  He was wearing overalls and something about how they fit him made him look off to me.  Len called it his best dance, just work on his feet.  Bruno, says Sean pleased Len but pleased Bruno even more.  Fun but needs cleaner footwork.  Carrie Ann said he danced with gusto but also needed to work on his footwork.

Zendaya & Val – Viennese Waltz – Score 24
CAI – 8
LG – 8
BT – 8

Pre-dance montage, Zendaya’s grandma is diagnosed with breast cancer so she’s dancing a song that was around for her grandma’s prom.  Basically a tribute for her grandmother.  Tear jerker alert!  On to the dance…It was beautiful with one little slip up at the end.  This girl is so graceful and doe-like.  When she’s done it’s like she’s stunned and its like she wants to cry but doesn’t.  Her grandma, mom and dad are very proud.  Bruno called it enchanting and charming.  A couple of stumbles but overall beautiful.  Carrie Ann likes her lyrical movements but feels the best is yet to come.  Carrie Ann complements Val’s work to bring out her best traits.  Len doesn’t like all the sweeping movements made with the arms.  He wants to see more in the hold.  He’s not criticizing her dance but basically its not his cup of tea.

So at the top are Kellie & Derek and the bottom are Wynonna & Tony.  That’s all folks!  See you tomorrow for the results show recap.  Who do you think will go home?

    HappyTuesday !

  2. Donna says:

    Good Morning

  3. AZGirl says:

    Good morning! Beautiful day here in AZ. Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday.

  4. L.A. Chica says:

    Good morning! I hope everyone has a fabulous day today.

    I haven’t yet finished reading the blogs but just have to say, Boston, that your captions crack me up! Especially that last one. 😆

  5. Sus says:

    How long does it take to open a gym? You find a place, you find the equipment and you open! I love how these women get divorced thinking their life will be perfect but end up in the exact same position they were in with the previous husband. Everything is all romantic while you are with your man and your kids are with their dad. But, it all comes toppling down once real life sets in and your kids are messing up your man’s crib and leaving lights on. Where’s the romance in bitching about energy bills?

    Tammy Sue – here’s some advice – once you have the carpet cleaned, the carpet is ruined. The cleaning takes the finish off the rug that helps keep it clean and then you are stuck having to have the cleaners come all the time. Take your shoes off!

    I thought Vicki looked good.

    I’m not impressed that Slade has a one hour a day radio job with a radio station that doesn’t even have a web page – http://www.playlist927.com/ – One hour a day isn’t going to pay off his past debts and won’t do much for any current bills. So Gretch the Wretch, I’m not sucking it!

    Heather – give your man onion rings if he wants them. Not to be a bitch or anything but he pays the bills. Let him have a some input on the menu. He didn’t look like an ass, you did.

    Is Troy the first Real Housewives grand baby?

    • NeNe is a grandmom – and there are some granddads I think (Peter Thomas, Bobby Zarin might be …)

    • LizzieLou says:

      I guess if you don’t count Nene’s “glambaby” I think he is the first grandbaby. It’s been kinda cool to watch Brianna grow up.

      • Sus says:

        I forgot about NeNe’s son! I remembered that the Zarins had grandkids but didn’t count them because the babies weren’t born during the show.

        It has been cool watching Brianna grow up. She’s always been one of my favorites.

    • T-Rex says:

      From Sus “How long does it take to open a gym? You find a place, you find the equipment and you open! ” Uhm, as long as it takes to start filming again, HA! TrailerTrashTrampySue didn’t get her “spin off” for this new business so she was going to make damned sure Bravo was at least filming it so she can get all the free publicity. She is going to need it because “boutique” gyms go out of business within the first year. Cripes look at Jackie Warner she had a slew of clients, been a trainer for many years had a load of very qualified employees, had the Bravo show and then the economy hit and her unfortunate conversation about a cancer patient was caught on film, and she lost a lot of money. Oh word is TrailertrashTrampySue is still vying for that spin-off, UGH!

      • Sus says:

        LOL T-Rex, you are right!!

        Jackie Warner and the breast cancer survivor – OMG! I completely forgot about that. That was rough. I really felt for that woman. The store is even in Jackie’s wiki entry.

        “Bravo cancelled the show after Season 3 of Work Out, which created much controversy. In the May 6, 2008 episode Jackie and her SkySport office manager Lisa were overheard in Jackie’s office gossiping negatively about the physical appearance of trainer Brian Peeler’s client. Brian and his client were both working out several feet away from the office. The client turned out to be well-known fitness model and breast cancer survivor Jamie Eason. Negative comments were made regarding Jamie’s breast implants and were overheard by Eason’s boyfriend, who was right outside Jackie’s office, unbeknownst to Jackie. The actual footage was not shown by Bravo, but Jamie’s boyfriend Rich Luzzi, as well as Jamie Eason herself, have stated that Jackie made most of the negative comments and Lisa only chimed in.[citation needed] Lisa said later in her Bravo blog that Jackie was heard making negative comments by Jamie Eason’s boyfriend.[4]

        Jackie denied making any comments herself, both in her on-the-air commentary and on her Bravo blog after the episode aired, and said the negative comments were made only by her assistant Lisa.[5] When Brian Peeler tried to discuss the situation with her, Jackie refused to do so and fired Brian. This turn of events, when aired, caused a media maelstrom of protests, petitions, and calls to cancel Work Out due to perceived inappropriate workplace behavior by Jackie, her alleged attempts to deflect blame and to cover up her supposed part in the situation, and her lack of an apology. The episode aired on May 6, and by May 9 Gatorade, a major sponsor of the show, dropped its sponsorship and publicly criticized the comments about a breast cancer survivor made on the program.[6] The show was cancelled shortly afterward, and Warner sold Sky Sport and Spa in 2009.”

        • realhousewifeva says:

          OMG I remember that when it happened. It really pissed me off. But then they gave Jackie that show where Jeana was on, sort of Biggest Loser style.

        • Powell says:

          T-Rex & Sus thks for the reminder. I remember some of it but didn’t know that’s why the show was cancelled & didn’t know she sold Skysport. Oh well. Sometimes you need to shut up & sometimes you need to humble yourself & apologize.

      • Powell says:

        T-Rex hope springs eternal for Tammy. Spin-off schmin-off. I won’t be watching. I’m not in the least bit curious.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Just by reading the recap, I’m so glad i’m not watching OC, but I don’t even think Slade has that radio gig anymore because someone tweeted about it yesterday and Tamra replied that it “didn’t last long”.

    • Powell says:

      sus I agree. The rose is off the bloom for Tammy & Eddie. At Tamra’s kids age they should know how to turn off lights but we now see they haven’t been taught that. It’s only money kids. So sad.

      Heather got on my nerves about the onion rings. It was a clam bake. Not a 6 course meal. Onion rings sound good, especially spicey.
      Vicki’s face looked funny on the mouth area but she said it was still swollen. IDK.

      • Aristang says:

        Ickey Vickey’s hair needs cosmetic surgery…she really needs to have a good haircut..she looked like witchy poo walking down to the table with a mean face or her plastic face…

        • Powell says:

          Aristang I think the OC HWs have the worst hairstyles. Taylor has the worst hair on BH but her hair looked nice at the reunion. It wasn’t flat and had curls. The OC ladies should be ashamed at the way their hair looks. Alexis’ does look nice, Gretchen was ok, Heather’s hair usually looks nice.

    • Orson says:

      Didn’t we meet Ken’s grandson in France? Though he was much older than grand “baby”, I guess.

      • Sus says:

        Yes. Apparently, I forgot about a bunch of grand kids. I think I thought Troy was first because OC was the first housewives show.

        All I could think about was how Troy rhymed with Croy and then I see Kim Zodiac. So unfair to that precious baby.

    • Stars99 says:

      Sus – lol @ “give your man onion rings if he wants them.”

  6. Lulu says:

    Good Morning!!!!!

    What a flop of an OC premiere! BTW love the recaps Stars99!!! The only bright spot was Brianna’s cute little newborn!!! Other than that what a yawn same old rinse and repeat. Why is Gretchen still on the show? She doesn’t bring anything. The same can be said of morticia Heather. Is she aware she looks like a zombie? The lighting this season is not her friend that’s for sure. Big shocker Eddie Mr Latino Controlling??!?!?!?!? Nooo NEVER! Latino men are not controlling *cough cough.* It’s ironic that Tamra has a habit of finding “controlling” men. Overall this season looks like a snooze. I’m curious about Don’t be tardy though.

    • Catseye says:

      True about ugly Heather. She had some serious dark marks underneath her eyes.

    • Stars99 says:

      Hi Lulu… Isn’t Troy a cutie? I loved seeing that he was born at Hoag in Newport Beach – It’s the hospital I go to if something goes wrong… It’s an old hospital but a beautiful one that has awesome views from some of the rooms… well, you can see the ocean in the distance, let’s just say… lol

    • It was an incredibly boring episode…I can’t believe that they thought it would be good for a premier. Snooooozefest! I’m hoping it picks up quickly…

  7. windycitywondering2 says:

    RHNJ brawl – also included in the melee was Wacky Jacky who took off her shoes, jumped up on a chair and started hitting Johnny the Greek in the head (Caroline feared for her safety) and Albie also joined the melee cause fighting is fun. And is anyone surprised that this was all Teresa’s doing? Another season, same garbage….

    • Rebecca says:

      JohnnyTheGreek’s wife Penny is a former special ed teacher. She has tweeted about attending events for autism awareness. I don’t believe for a second that he made a dig at little Nicholas. If anything was said it was probably a “why aren’t you home with your kids” remark that we have all made.

      Why in the hell can’t these Jersey folks get control of themselves? And as the SECOND brawl resulting in assault charges, how are these animals still on the air? Do they NOT have clauses in their contracts directing them to stay within the law???

      • Sus says:

        I’m beginning to think it’s in their contracts to start brawls!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I agree with you 100%. I don’t think that Johnny said anything that was directly malicious about a small child. Johnny is an attention whore trying to secure a spot on the show but even I am sure he has his limits. I think what was said was probably as you say…that Nic was mentioned but it was a criticism of Jac (and perhaps Chris)

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Jac is going to use her son’s condition to play the victim role all the time now.
        Penny also used to do a special needs day once a week at her salon where she gave people with special needs free haircuts.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Radar On Line put out a ridic story that Teresa did nothing to help. What the hell did they want her to do???? Step in like Wacko and start hitting the guy with her shoe!!!???

        Poison has got to stop taking his steroids. I don’t believe anything was said about Nicholas. What I have heard was that Johnny the Greek had once tweeted to Jac something to the effect of using their son. A lot of us have said she needs to get off twitter.

        Charges should be pressed. Kim D as well. They totalled her new shop.

        And Teresa is the animal?????

    • melthehound says:

      And is anyone surprised that this was all Teresa’s doing?
      ^^^^^^^^^^^
      Is that a joke?

    Hope that everyone had a great weekend and a Merry Easter!

    Thanks for the blogs ladies. Honestly, I was so tired that I slept through OC and woke up in time for BH Round 2. Thanks for the recap, Stars, because it made me glad that I took a nap, lol.

    Geez! If he had a few more minutes, I swear that Mauricio would have been screaming like a girl. Obviously, Klye had so much angst, she couldn’t stop flipping her hair. It was Amazing, dontcha think? Kim Richards needs to take her sorry, self-centered life off our TV screens. Taylor could have sat this one out and no one would have noticed. The Power Team – Brandi, YoYo and Lisa held their own. Another season ends… CHI CHI CHI

    • Rebecca says:

      Kyle has the nerve to say she stays up every “effing night praying to God.” IDIOT!

      Amaaaazing

    • plainviewsue says:

      Kyle needs to sit on her hands so she isn’t constantly playing with her hair. Between that and her lip licking she was driving me crazy.

      When they showed the clip of Faye telling Brandi she destroyed a family, Kyle smiled that little smirk of hers. That tells me all I need to know about that witch’s character.

      Also, did anyone notice that when Kyle went over to sit with Kim, she didn’t even go to hug her or calm her. It was just more face time, hair flipping & lip licking.

      I was wondering why nothing about Faye was shown, but there is a video on the Bravo site, which I assume will be shown next week. This should have been shown. Lisa & Yolanda were fabulous. What Kyle doesn’t get & what I wish was explained more isn’t the fact that Faye is her mouthpiece. It’s that Kyle just sits there and says nothing while her best friend attacks people. She says to Brandi that obviously Faye doesn’t like her. Why doesn’t she like her? Cos of what Vile & Ad told her!!! All Kyle does is deflect off herself. “I wasn’t there when the chanel pocketbook comment came up.” ” I wasn’t there when Faye went after Lisa.” Just like she kept saying last season that she didn’t hide the crutches.

      • trudie says:

        I noticed that Kyle didn’t try to comfort Kim. Lisa and Taylor were more comforting than Kyle. Although, when the discussion was over, I noticed Kim and Kyle holding hands.

    • Stars99 says:

      Vegas – Yeah, you didn’t miss much on RHOC, that’s for sure… I thought for sure they’d actually get to the Clam Bake… but alas… they’re stretching the drama (yawn) to next week… lol

  9. Sus says:

    Why did Kim’s pillow have do-do on it and why was Yolanda carrying it through the airport? We are supposed to believe Kim was “sober”?

    Brandi shouldn’t have said what she said about Kyle wanting Kim to fail but honestly, from what we see from Kyle, I understand why she said it. Kyle continually makes little jabs towards Kim. It’s a fact. Remember the screaming fight in the limo???

    I loved Maurice’s doubletalk about client and personal relationships. That was hysterical. He’s such a salesman.

    I’m glad all of them defended Paul against the allegation he abuses his kids.

    • Rebecca says:

      It’s interesting to hear of all the odd things that happened during the season that they kept quiet until now.

      Kyle has screamed at Kim onscreen every season so far. I totally think Kim is an entitled, mean bitch, but Kyle can’t cry about how much she loves her and supports her when we see the horrible way she treats her. She should stop herself and STFU before she becomes a catalyst for her sister reaching for a drink/drug to deal with her.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        Kim and Kyle live to hurt each other – just too sick to watch! Their storyline isn’t interesting and doesn’t belong amoung the Bentleys and fabulous estates.

        • plainviewsue says:

          It was said they were fighting terribly the whole time at the airport, which is why Yolanda was the one helping her.

          I don’t enjoy watching them at all.

      • Sus says:

        You are right “Kyle can’t cry” – I saw not one tear last night despite the cry voice and wiping her eyes (very carefully so her makeup didn’t get smudged) every 3 seconds.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      About what Brandi said to Kyle, here’s my take on it:

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

      Grab a klue, Kyle. This is you.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        LOL I thought the same thing about “a taste of Kyle’s vile medicine” and was waiting for Brandi to say but that is how I feel. I get that Brandi was trying to say that it didn’t look like Kyle was very supportive of Kim this season – her talking heads were brutal and snarky at times at Kim’s expense. BUT I wish Brandi didn’t say it because it just lead to another episode of the Kim and Kyle show…zzzzzzzzz over them.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          You’re right, Brandi didn’t say that’s how she feels, but didn’t she say she didn’t intend to be mean? Just like Kyle insults Lisa but supposedly doesn’t intend to, and TMCFR didn’t intend to insult Lisa when she insulted her (and Kyle couldn’t waste 2 seconds on understanding how that went down).

          I, too, am over the Richards sisterzzzzz…

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            So….she was trying to give Kyle a taste of her own medicine yet…in a double whammy also told Kim that her sister pretty much wants her dead?

            If that is the case, then it still pretty much affirms the really, really, really….ugly side of Brandi that I am seeing this season, In her quest for pay back, nothing is sacred…she knows no limits…and doesn’t give a toss about the collateral damage.

            • Iowagirl says:

              I really liked Brandi but I am starting to agree with you. I just don’t think she needs to go there, she is starting to loose me. I hope she reigns it in.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                I hope she does to. I would hope that a lot of the HW take a step back and reconsidered some of their behavior. I know that for many of us here. can admit to that there things we have said or done ..that we wouldn’t do again if given a second chance. But it seems like the majority of these women don’t get better…they get worse. .

                • lizzle says:

                  In reply to your comment RR, it sounds like they are being rewarded for their bad behavior… that is why they don’t get better. I believe Bravo is rewarding them for this behavior and I believe that is why Adrienne changed so drastically from Season 1 to Season 2… IMO, the producers told her to amp it up a bit. I use a reward/ consequence system with the kids… so there must not really be any consequences for the ladies bad behavior… at least with their employer. And like Yolanda pointed out in her blog, if she was ultra wealthy… she would be laying on a beach drinking cocktails… so I think that most of these women need this job to maintain the lifestyle that they live… whether its the paycheck or the exposure for their business ventures.

                  I read your comment this morning from yesterday about speech therapy. My step daughter (that is what I call her even though I am not married to her father), who turned 4 at the end of December is about to start speech therapy for the first time. She drops her consonants and I have tried to work with her to make the proper sounds, but she has a hard time with it. I will let you know how it goes. I am worried that she will refuse to do what the therapist wants, because she is a challenging child. I guess we shall see. How old is your daughter who is in speech therapy and how long has she been doing it? Is it helping?

                  • Orson says:

                    I needed and had speech therapy when I was a kid. I had a lot of trouble with consonants and consonant blends. My parents held off on it until I started first grade. (K was half days only). There was nothing like the minor teasing I got there as motivation to learn what the therapist was teaching me. I think it took less than a year of therapy for me.

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    I agree, It seems like each season they up the anti a little bit more and more especially in NJ- where from season 1 there were fights that needed people to be physically restrained. The Baptism Brawl has to be one of the most vulgar things I have ever seen on tv, I don’t think there is anything that Joe or is wife can do that would make themselves redeemable in my eyes.

                    Both my girls are in speech therapy and it has helped them tremendously. The oldest has been in ST since she was about 20 month old and the youngest started at around 3. Don’t worry about your daughter being a bit non compliant, My oldest can be the same way…but qualified speech therapist are very capable of dealing with that behavior and it actually gets built into their goals. Also usually when there is an increase in language capabilities behavior also improves.

                    There are few different apps available if you want to also do a home program with her.

                    One also shows where the tongue should be placed in speech production.

                    Let me know if I can be of any help.

                    • lizzle says:

                      Orson and RabbleRouser, thank you both for your comments on speech therapy. I will probably ask more questions as we begin the process. I think this will help her with her social play skills which are sometimes lacking. She is a sweet girl, but definitely has a salty side! She reminds me of me, when I was little.

            • I Need A Life! says:

              Do you really think Brandi is smart enough to have figured all that out? You’re giving her way too much credit. She knows that the only way to stay on board is to say vile things about everyone. Why else would anyone care about her. “Who is Brandi in this world?” If Yolanda is a true friend, she’ll take her aside and say, “Sweetheart. No more botox. YOU are addicted.”

              • L.A. Chica says:

                Yes, I do think Brandi is smart enough to have figured all that out, not that such a move requires any brains. That said, Brandi may be uneducated but she is not stupid, and I think she has the ability to read people very well. And while I do think it was wrong of her to say it to Kyle (two wrongs don’t make a right and “cutting a bitch” is never appropriate, imho), it is a fault of hers to go for the jugular when she’s either personally feeling threatened or thinks she has to protect someone she cares about.

              • L.A. Chica says:

                Totally agree about the Botox! Imo it’s the worst treatment ever developed and is helpful to one, unless you’re a poker player.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  Oops – that should read “helpful to NO one”

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    So true about the Botox! When did women’s lives become to boring that they found time to contemplate a wrinkled forehead? I’d rather worry about getting my stomach flat and my boobs back where the belong!!

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      I want my flat belly back, too!
                      😦

                    • kit9 says:

                      Or in Brandi’s case, a wrinkled thumb. lol. I think there could be something to the rumor about Brandi’s red hands and why she’s wearing those dumb gloves everywhere is because she got laser treatments on her hands.

                    • Realhousewifeva says:

                      It’s not a rumor, she’s the one who tweeted it with a picture.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                But Brandi doesn’t say vile things about everyone. Her, Lisa and Yolanda seem to think they are the holy- trifecta and at least publicly…have each others backs.

                • Contessa says:

                  Well at least these friendships are on the up and up and these three women do spend time together away from the show. There is something to be said for loyalty and speaking the truth, Lisa does it with class, Yolanda does it up front and clean, and unfortunately Brandi sometimes blurts out too much (I do like her but she needs to think a bit before she speaks). You cannot buy loyalty and if you look back at the previous season when everyone was out to get Lisa because of jealousy and whatever, Brandi was the only one who stuck up for her, that to me is a friend.

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    I am not sure if think Yolanda is loyal at this point.. I haven’t seen enough of her. I also do think she said that Lisa is full of b.s.

                    While there is something to be said about loyalty , I think there is also something to be said about accountability. Do they all speak the truth…all of them time? I don’t think so…about any of them…

                    I do agree that many of them conspired to toss Lisa under the bus last year…but Brandi wasn’t the only one who didn’t want to get involved in any of that. Camille also didn’t jump in the fray,….except that this year then the tables were turned…and it was Adrienne;s turn to suffer Camille got slammed for the very same stance.

                    If anyone is stand up..I think it is probably Camille. She is too focused on trying to keep her own life together to focus on taking anyone else down.

            • kit9 says:

              Brandi was absolutely saying Kyle wanted Kim dead. Not just that but it would make her happy if Kim were dead. I think Brandi is raging narcissist. It explains her insane tendency to make boldly offensive comments to people about their most personal relationships, relationships she knows very little about.

              • melthehound says:

                Brandi was absolutely saying Kyle wanted Kim dead.
                ^^^^^^^^^^^^
                I know you think Brandi is a C (because that’s what you said) but I have to call bullshit on this one.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  Yeah, me too, Jeff.

                  • Contessa says:

                    Count me in with Jeff and the others, as that is kind of an assinine way of looking at what Brandy said. Were you watching the same show as the rest of us?

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      Yes Contessa I am…Did you not see how deeply that remark hurt Kim and hear about how much hinges on her ability to remain sober?
                      Just out of curiosity…if Kim doesn’t stay sober what do you think will happen to her? How do you think her family especially her children will react. Because I don’t think it will take a magic 8 ball to predict it won’t end well. So with that being said….the sheer ugliness of Brandi’s remark needs to be noted.

                • mrs peabody says:

                  me too……

                  • Sus says:

                    Me three. Brandi said mean dig at Kyle. She was saying that there is a part of Kyle that likes it that Kim is in trouble all the time. That is not the same thing was wanting Kim dead. I think she went too far but seeing what Kyle says to and about Kim, I see why Brandi would say it.

                    • Orson says:

                      Drunken Kim needs Kyle to look out for her. Or at least, that’s what Kyle believes. A sober, healthy, and independent Kim doesn’t need Kyle to take care of her. So, Kyle has some abandonment issues with Kim’s sobriety. Not that she’d admit to it. That’s just my opinion.

                    • Sus says:

                      I would agree but I don’t think Kim is sober at least not sober how I define it.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  Not really…even Kim who is the alcoholic knows that she either stays sober…or she dies. There is no if , ands or buts about it…the choices are sobriety or death.
                  Brandi says think thinks that Kyle doesn’t want Kim to be sober….so that leaves only death.

                  • Sus says:

                    Honestly, I thought Kim’s speech about being sober or dying was regurgitated from what she heard at rehab. It was like she said it because a sober person would say it. Of course, I don’t buy anything she says. I judge her by her behavior and she has appeared stoned every single time she was on screen this season including the reunion.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    This strange accusation about Brandi saying that Kyle wishes death on Kim just baffles me. Addicts don’t have the market cornered on death. Sober people die too. Some alcoholics live really long lives…outliving the sober many times. IMO, it’s not either or…death visits us all. We don’t have to wish it on anyone; it just comes. It’s a bit of a leap in my opinion that Brandi was literally saying or even thinking “Kyle wants Kim to die.”

                    • Sus says:

                      You said it much better than I did Lainey 🙂

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      Of course, ultimately everyone dies. But given that Kim and Kyle know exactly how long and to what extent she was abusing…and that if did did keep going the way she was going…it was going to end in death. Kim and Kyle both believe it…so it doesn’t really matter if Brandi believes Kim can or will die from her alcoholism or not.

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      Right so that whole “Brandi thinks Kyle wants Kim to die ” is erroneous. It’s a Kim and Kyle thing (according to your comment), it’s not a Brandi opinion.

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      LL….
                      My point is…it doesn’t matter if that is what Brandi intended or not..(although she has managed to BS her way through on even if the comment was even mean) . It’s about the significance of what she said and WHY that remark was so deeply hurtful to both Kim and Kyle. Brandi has repeatedly said things without even the slightest appreciation of the fall out it create and the pain it can cause…she is either completely obvious to this or quite frankly just doesn’t care…and IMO neither one of which is a good thing.

                  • melthehound says:

                    I think that’s a pretty big stretch RR. Even Kim took Kyle to task about some of the things she has said. Though her rant seemed to be more about appearances rather than the actual problems. That is, if people believe she is sober or not regardless of whether she is or not. The only issue here is that Brandi said, what we all see from her. Well, most anyway. Even Kim said, and it was probably the most intelligent thing she’s said ever on the show, something to the affect of if you don’t want Brandi to say anything, don’t ask her any questions.

                    • princesspindy says:

                      Ask me no questions, I’ll tell you no lies!

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      Kim took Kyle to task about some things that were said after the conversation was re-directed. There discussion wasn’t about if Kyle wanted Kim to be sober…it wasn’t even so much about her worry if Kim can stay sober or not but about the verbiage Kyle uses and how it effects her while she is struggling with sobriety.

                    • melthehound says:

                      RR, I thought that’s what I said. What difference does it make when it was said?

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      I wish there was more room to reply..I know we are kind of squished. I think the difference is that people are taking that conversation to excuse Brandi..and that Kim also thinks Kyle doesn’t want her to remain sober when that wasn’t what was said directly or indirectly.

                    • melthehound says:

                      I’m not really excusing any of them for anything.

                  • Contessa says:

                    Brandi is addressing the issue of how Kyle treated Kim throughout the season. Why the he!! did it take the reunion for Kyle to understand that certain wording hurts/upsets Kim? If she is so supportive of her sister she would be in therapy with her. Kyle basically ignored Kim in Paris; if that was my sister and she was off,I would be in the room with her, handholding, calling the doctor (Yolanda called the doctor on Kim’s behalf). Kyle should also know what meds she is on, when she needs to take them and how often. Kim has a disease and it affects her entire family. If her rehab sticks and it was a good rehab facility, than the family should be totally involved in a loving and gentle way. Also please note Lisa was much more affectionate bodywise to Kim, as was Taylor…when Kyle sat down next to Kim, I did not see that enveloping hug that I would have given my sister at that point. It was kim touching Kyle’s hand. I understand alcoholic addiciton – my late Dad had it, and I lived through it for many years until he simply quit cold turkey. For this reason I rarely ever drink. Brandi has been very gentle and loving with Kim and apologizes constantly, but Brandi spoke the truth, but presented it badly, her wording was off. My wording would have been Kyle gives the appearance of writing Kim off and doesn’t seem to support her from what I have seen – harsh but very true. Neither my words or Brandi’s words convey death in any way, shape or form. If Kyle was that loving her sister would not be on the show, and if Kyle is worried about Kim’s money than she can give her salary to Kim and live on Malicio’s commissions from their friends.

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      Sorry that we a having such a squished convo… but honestly..just look at that whole ridiculous conversation between Kim and Kyle at Lisa’s vow renewal. Where it didn’t matter what Kyle said, Kim turned it around and made it about her…and what Brandi did and said to her…even though to the best of everyone;s knowledge that was for the most part resolved. Kyle was literally waking on egg shells so I don’t understand how people can really believe that Kyle doesn’t care about what she says and how it impacts her sisters efforts at sobriety.

                      If Kyle is going to be criticized..then so so should have Lisa…except that I don’t think in this instance Kyle or Lisa deserve the criticism . KIm’s hypersensitivity does not mean that those around her want her to fail…it means that Kim is struggling and doubting her own ability to remain sober.

                    • melthehound says:

                      … and her sister’s remarks feed that insecurity. That’s what I got from her anyway. Maybe I’m wrong though and everything between them is just honky dory 😉

      • kit9 says:

        That’s not the same at all. Kyle and Lisa had a friendship. Those two have a relationship and the right to be angry at the other isn’t the sole right of Lisa’s. Kyle has a right to voice her issues with Lisa based on that relationship just as Lisa does to Kyle. Brandi made a statement about someone else’s relationship that has nothing to do with her, a relationship between two people she really barely knows. She has no clue about the history other than the tiny sliver she’s seen. And, she has no clue what it’s like dealing with an addict for years.

        • Sus says:

          Given what Kyle has said to the others about Kim, given what Kyle has said to Kim in front of the others, I can see why Brandi felt like she could say something like that. I wouldn’t have said and think it went too far but I can see why Brandi would say it.

          • kit9 says:

            What do you mean what’s she said to others about Kim? Nobody had to tell the group that Kim was an addict or that she was on something or that’s she’s a flake, etc. Kim’s made that perfectly evident without input from Kyle. When you’re dealing with an addict, for years, you are lied to constantly. Kyle’s probably been heard Kim claim she’s sober a thousand times, even while stinking of alcohol. Of course she doubted her sobriety in Paris and other times…Kim was completely out of it! That’s not Kyle’s fault, it’s Kim’s for giving her years of evidence to support her suspicions. What would Brandi have Kyle do? Believe everything Kim says? Then Brandi would accuse her of wanting Kim to die because she was sticking her head in the sand and ignoring the reality of Kim’s situation.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Brandi’s intent was to hurt Kyle-she didn’t say those things to be helpful-she said it to be a bitch. If its payback for game night then perhaps Kyle called the wrong HWs a grudge holder. I don’t think it’s about game night-I think Brandi wanted to call Kyle out for something and since Kyle hasn’t done anything to Brandi THIS SEASON-Brandi just tried to pick something that would do the most damage.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Kit-Brandi did get laser treatment on her hands-IDK if the burning was side effect or if the treatment was screwed up.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  From those pictures…I can say that I don’t think that Brandi was ever a hand model. I would have thought they were Kyle’s hands for a second but they lack that garish and ostentatious ring she always wears.

                  • Contessa says:

                    Bandi’s hand is swollen in the picture, but if it was a normal photo there would be no mistaking her hand for Kyle’s. Kyle has short stubby man hands, Brrandi’s hands are much more feminine.

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      Maybe…I have never seen Brandi’s hands close up before..but I know that even she has her insecurities about them..or at least her joints.

              • mrs peabody says:

                But Kyle has done things to Brandi, who has been feeding all the info to TMCFR? Kyle (or least part of it), then TMCFR goes after Brandi while Kyle just stands around saying I wasn’t there, I’m not getting involved when she’s the one who put it in motion. Kyle’s best bet would be to keep her mouth shut so she’s not making comments about anyone. Why is it ok for Kyle and Kim to be so mean about and to Brandi and Brandi is expected to keep her mouth shut and not say anything negative about Kyle, Kim, Adrienne or anyone else. If you don’t want her coming after you keep your mouth shut about her. I have not seen Brandi go after anyone what I have seen is her responding to the attacks on her and/or friends. I personally think Brandi does have a right to respond to what they are either saying or accusing her of. I might not respond exactly the same way but believe me if I knew someone was saying things about me you bet I’d respond and if they were attacking me to my face I’d bit back and might just let some secrets out too and if they didn’t like it maybe they’d think twice the next time before they open their mouths about me. Sorry just my feelings about all of this

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  Sorry but who or what is TMCFR?

                  • T-Rex says:

                    The MorallyCorruptFayeKR

                    • Sus says:

                      My husband was flipping channels this weekend and came across some show recapping the OJ Saga. The show talked about the “friend” who was at rehab that Nicole talked to right before she died. My husband looked at me and said “I’m waiting”. I said “The Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick”. We both cracked up.

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      LOL. Oh…yeah I can see why she would use TMCFR than type all of that out. Even when I just read the name Faye…I have Camille’s voice in my head.

                • plainviewsue says:

                  Totally agree Mrs. Peabody. To every single word.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  But what did Kyle do to Brandi? Why did she feel the need to go after Kyle? B/c of game night? Then Brandi should have laid her cards on the table and said something about it. Instead she cut a bitch b/c that’s all she knows how to do. At 40 years old-it ain’t cute-it’s immature and bitchy. Faye is an ass but this isn’t about Faye-if it were Brandi should have said so.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I don’t think the majority of the way these ladies treat each other is okay and I am glad I don’t know people in my real life who act this way.

                  But if we are going to play at tit for tat….why is there for much fury if any of the other ladies strike Brandi back. If that is how they are going to play it…it doesn’t matter who struck first….they will keep going round and round.

            • Sus says:

              Kyle dishes it out to everyone, especially Brandi in the first season. She has said things to Kim that are horrible. Remember the limo? Brandi has seen all of this either first hand or on TV. That’s why Brandi felt like she could be that mean.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                Kim and Kyle both said horrible things to each other in that limo. Now that the cat is out of the bag….the truth is..and even Kim can now admit is..she IS an alcoholic. I also don’t think that Kim or Kyle planned for that horrible fight. It wasn’t part of the regular formual for catty or bitchiness. I think we all could sense the very real and deep pain in their voices.

                No doubt Kyle and Kim were mean to Brandi the first season and the viewers have punished them for it. But does that mean that Brandi now gets a bunch of get out of jail free cards when it comes to her own behavior.

                • Sus says:

                  No, Brandi doesn’t get a get out of jail free card. She gets the card of calling BS on the Richard Sisters. She’s saying Kyle wants everyone to think that she has Kim’s back but that Kyle doesn’t always demonstrate the devoted, loyal sister.

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    Kim and Kyle have a complicated relationship. I have to imagine it’s hard to be completely devoted to someone with a substance abuse problem because sometimes it might be hard to draw the line between having someones back and enabling them.

                    Why is it Brandi’s job to call bullshit on their relationship? When it doesn’t seem like she has know either one of them long enough or well enough to say what is what.

                    I think Brandi needs to get her own ducks in a row but instead she is finding her fame for calling other people out. Even the title of her book essentially says “I get drunk and talk shit” and people find it endearing.

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      We do.

                    • mrs peabody says:

                      You are right, they have a very complicated relationship, it’s seems on some level to be a love hate relationship, which is sad but it is what it is. As far as how long Brandi’s known them she’s known them the same length of time they have known her and it hasn’t stopped them from calling her out. It works both ways, if they can do it to her she can do it right back. Again I think a lot of the lashing out we’ve seen with Brandi has been a response to the way some of these women have treated her and I think they have treated her horrible and it started the day she walked into that party on her crutches. The Richard sisters have been rude b*tches to her from day 1.

              • kendo says:

                My two cents worth. I think what Brandi said may have finally opened Kyle’s eyes to the fact that she is saying s h i t that’s harmful to Kim. Kim is super sensitive about everything. She’s not sober and she doesn’t want to be questioned about it. Her face looked horrible last night. I think Kim needs this show, just to be somewhat accountable. I think a sober Kim is funny as hell. Love her sense of humor! I think it’s completely for anyone to come to the conclusion that Brandi wants Kim dead – get real!

                • kendo says:

                  completely crazy or messed up – left out a word or two

                  To a couple posters on here, I don’t understand why it’s has to be all one way or the other.
                  Why all the Brandi hate – Brandi, Lisa & Yolanda are the only likeable down to earth people on the show. I love that Brandi has been able to make this show work for her – despite having to deal with some low life behavior!

                • VV says:

                  Everybody knows that Brandi is not very eloquent. Surprisingly enough, calling Kim out on her behavior during game night kinda made Kim go to rehab at the end of S2. Calling Kyle out on the way she talks about her sister….may cause Kyle to watch more closely how she expresss herself about her sister and realize that it does sound unsopportive at times…

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    Really? Brandi is getting credit for Kim going to rehab now?
                    Brandi is helping Kyle be a better sister?

                    I guess Brandi should get a burial plot next to Mother Teresa.

                    While it’s kind of you to give that much regard to Brandi, I am just not seeing it.

                    • Realhousewifeva says:

                      No you just accuse Brandi of saying Kyle wishes Kim would die. Sorry but that’s as ludicrous as Adrienne accusing Brandi of breaking up her marriage. So if you can be on one extreme, others can be on the other extreme. The way some of you talk about Brandi, I think youd want to bury her with hitler. It’s almost creep to read how worked up peope get over Brandi, accusing her of things she did not even say.

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      Even it you take what Brandi said at word value..it was awful. It was in NO WAY helpful and it wasn’t crafted to be such. She wanted to hurt Kyle…and she succeeded…she also got to hurt Kim for good measure.

                      Taking what she said at word value completely ignores the consequences and the effects of what will happen to Kim. Kim thinks she will DIE. Kyle fears her sisters addiction can kill her. Why is that so hard to understand. That is the IMPACT of the words Brandi used…

                      I guess Brandi’s remark about Kim’s poo stained pillow is just Brandi’s kind meaning but abrupt way of saying use more toilet paper.

        • plainviewsue says:

          Actually, Brandi’s friend Jennifer had tweeted that it was her mom & Brandi that pulled her through her sobriety & it was years. So she does know what it is like to deal with an addict for years.

          Brandi has apologized for the word fail. But I kept thinking the same thing. Watching and hearing Kyle’s talking heads about her sister.

          I think that Kyle is the narcissist.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I think dealing with a friend…and dealing with a family member are too very different animals.
            Brandi also apologized about outing the surrogacy but then in the next breath says that she really isn’t all that sorry and that they had it coming.

            • Contessa says:

              I disagree – you can love your friend just as much as a family member and if they have been in your life for a long time it does affect you just as much, if not more in some ways.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                You might love a friend as much as family member….it’s not about love.

                Genetically, all of the Richard sisters were at risk for addiction because of their mother. They all grew up in the same house hold and dealt with the same family dynamics. So it that regard, being a friend helping someone deal with addiction isn’t the same as being a family member….because when it comes down to the wounds that need to be licked…to help recover..family is very much part of that dynamic.

                Brandi got to choose on if she wanted to be friend…Kyle and Kathy and the rest of Kim’s family don’t get to choose if they want to be related or not. They didn’t t get a choice about the situation they grew up in or who their parents were.

                So again…IMO the two situations are in no way the same.

                • Realhousewifeva says:

                  Ding ding ding! Exactly. Brandi chose to help her friend, Kyle is stuck with Kim. And she resents it big time. And she wants everyone to see Kim screw up, I don’t care what anyone says. She makes a big production for the cameras every time Kim is late or missing.

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    I am sure she does resent it. I think Kim’s addiction has caused a lot of pain and effected a lot of people Kyle loves…most importantly her sister.

                    I don’t think she is making a big production every time her sister is late or missing. I think it’s true reaction. I think the big production was really when everyone..all the cast and crew were filming around Kim’s issues in an effort to disguise them.

    • Powell says:

      Sus last night I said what I think Kyle wants is to be the one w/the perfect husband, children, life & for Kim to rely on her. Also she wants to be the one that is admired on the show & she wants to continuously tell Kim that she and Mauricio take care of Kim.

  10. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s Tuesday, Tuesday, hump day eve. I hope you’re having a great day.

    BH part2 was ok & OC was blah. Will there be a BH lost footage? I have no idea why they call it that. It’s not footage lost on the MGM lot. Well I hope so. There is so much more to see.

    Well you wonderful people have a great day.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Iirc, Lisa mentioned in her blog last week that there would be lost footage aired. It’s Bravo’s way of weaning us addicts from the BH ladies at season’s end.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Yes they have a couple clips up of the lost footage.

    • Orson says:

      Well, lost on the cutting room floor, so to speak. There probably isn’t a cutting room because it’s recorded on video tape, DVD, or solid state hard drive.

  11. Good Morning Everybody…happy Tuesday and my DD’s birthday! Yeah! Lots to do today with work and plans, so I have not read all of the blog yet but I will come back later to do so.

    Thanks NMD, BB, Lisette, and Stars99 for the great read. I know it will be great!

    Just wanted to put my 2 cents in about BH reunion….Kim is in trouble and I cannot believe Bravo is being so irresponsible in allowing her to be on the show. That mess with her stating her sobriety last night is so inappropriate and damaging. It really upsets me. I do have a smidge of empathy for Kyle with having to deal with that and go along with the lie to some degree (for different reasons) because until Kim takes full responsibility, there will be no healing on any level. Shame on Bravo for broadcasting this. 😡

    One more thing…Mauricio screams like a girl! LOL!

    I will be back later if I can and can’t wait to read all your excellent comments and takes on the disaster that is OC (saw the last 10 mins, same old, same old) and BH.

    Love you all….have a Happy Tuesday!! 🙂

    New post, “Tuesday Affirmations ~ Emotions”, is up at my place. Enjoy!

      Happy Birthday to your darling girl.

    • missusmc says:

      My feeling is that Bravo is well aware that Kim is a liability, and they would fire her, but they can’t afford to take that risk in case Kim ODs or something. After the negative press of Russell Armstrong, and the subsequent backlash of the show, they don’t want to be in that position again. IMO, they are screwed either way, because we viewers know she’s obviously unwell, and they know she’s unwell, but to fire her would be her ultimate unravelling. This show is all she has.

      • I get what you are saying missusmc, and I do agree, but it should never have gotten this far. They should have let Kim go after season 1 so she could get herself into some serious rehab and healing. Now, it is just a mess.

        • missusmc says:

          Oh, I totally agree that it’s gotten too far. I just think Bravo and Kim are in so deep together that there’s no way out. And that’s truly sad.

          • Catseye says:

            I agree with both of you. Bravo even demanded that Kim go to rehab, as far as I remember reading. But they can’t force her to take the bull by the horns, so to speak. I think it was extremely kind of Yolanda to try to get her to do the Lemon Cleanse too. I’ve been doing a modified version of it for the past 4 days and I feel really good; more alert, rested after sleeping, less pain. I know something like that would help Kim, it would lift her spirits and detox her body, but she obviously doesn’t want to try. (Jeez, just a couple of days of it even) I’ve read that certain types of people want attention, regardless of good or bad, ANY attention they get satisfies a need within them, I really think she’s just one of those people.

    • Lulu says:

      Is there an affirmations for my back hurts I didn’t sleep well last night nor did my husband. To make matters worse DH picked a fight over not being able to “spend his money like he wants.” Umm I think the months of unemployment went to his head! My only priority is to “save!” and keep saving!!! You never know what the future holds.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

      • trudie says:

        Lulu,

        My husband went through a similar spending phase after he found a job. I think after 14 months of unemployment, he felt he deserved to treat himself. I was like you – all I wanted to do was save money to recoup what we had lost. Hang in there, hopefully he will realize you are right. (When will they learn we always right?)

        • Powell says:

          Trudie I didn’t think of that. Your and,Lulu’s husbands want to treat themselves in someway. What did he finally do? I guess a small treat would help them on their way to feeling they have some financial control back.

          Lulu it will be ok.

          • trudie says:

            I believe he bought himself a bottle of good scotch. It really wasn’t a spending spree. Most of the time he is all talk. My man has big ideas but not the money to back them up!

    Stars, I just want to say how much I enjoyed your blog. While it did reaffirm why I can’t watch the show because I find the entire cast insufferable, the humor and snark you delivered made it enjoyable to read.

    Also, a big thank you to NMD and BB and all the rest of our dedicated blog writers.

    • T-Rex says:

      ^5 to this comment I enjoy reading Stars99 Blog, but will NOT watch, I love the snarky humor too, it’s right up my alley!

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Totally agree. I cannot watch OC but the recap was great.. Snark away on all of the Stars, because they are all insufferable. Out of all the franchises, this is the one that feels the most phony, as if they outline their entire storylines ahead of time and follow scrip.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        *script

      • plainviewsue says:

        Complete agreement. I will watch OC. Why? Cos for whatever reason I still want to watch these women; maybe cos it’s the first. But please please be snarky! I was laughing so hard.

        Apparently, something major has happened between Vicki and Lauri. Vicki tweeted an article yesterday that said Lauri cheated on George early in the marriage and they lived separately for awhile.

        Lauri tweeted that is complete garbage. She and George have never had a fight (please!!) and have never lived separately.

        I have to wonder why Lauri did return and have it out for Vicki. Back in season one, Vicki gave Lauri a job and they seemed really close.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          Anyone who says they never fight with their husband is a LIAR and hiding something, IMO

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Or they just got married…like a second ago!!

              Jill, Or they are married so long they have hallway sex. As they bump into each other in the hallway wife says phuck you & husband says phuck you too. Then off to their seperate corners of the house till the next time, Lisa

        • Stars99 says:

          PVSue – At least we can laugh and snark at them, right? I wonder why Laurie returned, too… it will be interesting to see how that unfolds… it’s not like she needs the money so she might miss the celebrity of it or something? Or am I missing something? I may be out of the loop… lol

          • plainviewsue says:

            Absolutely. I think it is cos she missed the celebrity of it, but who knows.

            Can I just tell you again……….your write up of the BH blogs & now OC are fabulous!!!!!

      • Stars99 says:

        Thanks, Realhousewifeva… Let the snarkfest begin! = )

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, RR… yeah, I find the entire cast insufferable, too – but it’s really much more fun to snark that way… and truly… I have no favorites on this franchise – they’re all yucky… although who knows about the new girl? … Is there hope? Probably not… lol

  13. L.A. Chica says:

    I think Lisa answered correctly about whether or not she thinks Kyle is lying. She has already had the experience of Kyle giving a version of an event (game night) that in reality, once she saw she footage, turned out to be very different from what Kyle “remembered.” Now, Kyle may have truly believed that the night really happened the way she recalled it, but clearly it didn’t. Is Kyle a liar if she truly believes what her distorted memory is telling her? Perhaps not, but Lisa knows that Kyle’s memory isn’t worth shit. And as for Kim’s memory…well, we needn’t go there.

    • Contessa says:

      HI Chica,
      I agree about Kyle’s perception of things. It is really immature and she cannot see who she really is and how responsible she is for some of the negative things. I believe she thinks she was awesome on game night and Brandi was in the wrong entirely, as evidenced by her explanation to Lisa. Kyle distorts facts to her liking and I think she really percieves it as the truth. Kim needs to go back to rehab and I cannot stand watching that sob story next year. This is not what I signed up for on BH, as it should be about them fighting, gossip, their homes, riches, glam places, clothing.

    • plainviewsue says:

      EXCELLENT point. I didn’t even think about that.

  14. windycitywondering2 says:

    Was anyone else disappoint by the second part of the reunion? It seemed that it just rehashed what came out in the first part and the only difference was having Mauricio’s infomercial and a chance to see Ken and Giggy. Hopefully, the lost footage will be worth watching.

    • Sus says:

      The reunion could have easily been 1 hour. They even threw in Andy’s joke about a new housewife to eat time. RHOBH needs a major house clean that started with Adrienne. Kim, Vyle and Taylor have got to go. They bring every situation down.

      I’m sick of every situation revolving around Kim’s water pills making her drunk. I’m done. I’ll watch Intervention if I want to see that.

    • melthehound says:

      I thought it sucked. The entire season sucked. One big long infomercial, including the reunion. My word for it last night was Crapfest. I’m not going to waste any time debating what anyone said or what they meant by it, I just don’t find it in me to care anymore. Bring on NJ.

  15. BB says:

    Loved the OC and DWTS recaps ladies. Keep throwing the snarks Stars. Those OC hags deserve every last one of them.

    • Stars99 says:

      BB – lol @ hags… lololol… you’re hysterical.. I’m glad to see that RHOBH didn’t make you go bonkers… the reunion shows are so tough to do – you should get hazard pay!

  16. rabblerouser2010R says:

    About the reunion….
    I think Yolanda did say that Lisa was full of shit. Yolanda did not hid the fact in her talking heads or some of the conversations that she had on camera that pretty much suggested she thought Lisa was only interested in Kim when the camera’s were rolling.

    Brandi made the comment about the sh!t pillow to try and humiliate Kim, IMO, if it was just to show Kim that Yolanda was honestly trying to be helpful she could have just said “stuff”. Not to mention, it would have been a moot point anyway since Kim has already said that she thought that Yolanda was kind and supportive towards her.

    Brandi’s comment to Kyle about not wanting Kim to succeed in her sobriety was straight up mean. For Brandi to make a remark like that then purr in her sex kitten voice that she wasn’t saying it to be mean, tells me that she thinks she has the viewers wrapped around her fingers and can say ANYTHING she wants without concern for reprisal. The bottom line is she essentially told Kyle that she thinks she wants her sister dead. I know there is a lot of contempt for Kyle from the viewers but I just don’t know how that remark can be excused.

    I can also appreciate Kyle’s point that as direct and straight forward as Yolanda seems to be, that Kyle had no idea until she read her blogs about how she felt about her. I feel that Yolanda played it kind of safe IRT whith Kyle but when the shows were being aired….and saw Kyle was getting raked over the coals and was fair game as far as the viewers were concerned….she let loose.

    • Sus says:

      I agree that Brandi’s comment to Kyle was straight up mean.

      You can’t ignore that some of Kyle’s behavior and comments about Kim make it seem like she loves that Kim has troubles.

      I wonder if Kyle and Kim’s mother played them against each other growing up.

        I don’t agree she was saying that Kyle basically wants to see her sister dead, that is horrible. I think she was trying to tell Kyle she doesn’t appear to want Kim to succeed and I think there is some truth in that. Sure she could have phrased that a little different but I think was she was saying is basically the truth. Think about it, Kim was the star and Kyle took a back seat to her growing up. Kim is now truly messed up and Kyle is the one with the successful husband, happy family life and appears not to have the problems kim has, she has a good life, kim has a miserable life. Kyle succeeded Kim didn’t. If Kim gets sober she all of a sudden is not the loser sister anymore, it’ll be look at how well Kim is doing, she has really turned her life around and got it back on tract, she’s now a success story and starts to outshine Kyle again. Kyle is again taking a back seat to Kim. Kyle is a very jealous person and does not want Kim to outshine her. That is why I think what Brandi said is correct. I don’t for a minute think Kyle would ever want Kim dead and I don’t think that is what Brandi was trying to say either…..I think in Kyle’s own immature way she loves her sister and would be heart broken if something happened to her.

        • Sus says:

          Exactly!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          What ever point that Brandi was trying to convey, was lost in the words she chose ,,,which is becoming a theme for Brandi. Both the sisters believe that if Kim doesn’t stay sober she will die, Kim also said she doesn’t think if she fails this time she will get another chance at bat. That’s why clearly from both Kyle and Kim’s reaction Brandi’s comment was so deeply, deeply hurtful.

          Whatever damaging childhood dramatics they have going on IMO are taking a back seat to the damages of Kim’s actual addition. IMO there is no way…that Kyle thinks she has power over Kim if she is not sober. On the contrary all of Kim’s family is very, very afraid for her. That gives Kim’s addiction power over them all.

          Brandi might have been America’s sweet heart in S1 but I think she is really starting to show herself to be a not very nice person. Having tact just isn’t the ability to think about what you say before you speak but to also tempter it with some sensitivity and
          consideration because you know that their is an actual person on the receiving end of it. Brandi can’t seem to manage that…and IMO it’s huge character flaw.

          • mrs peabody says:

            I wasn’t thinking of her having power over Kim if she is not sober, I think she likes the attention she gets as the sister who has her sh** together and kim is the loser sister. If Kim gets her stuff together and gets on top of this all of a sudden the positive attention shifts back to Kim in how well she is doing and Kyle is just Kim’s younger sister again. I think Kyle is a very jealous person who wants all the attention as the good sister. I also think Kim’s whole family is afraid for her as her problem could kill her in the end. I lived with an alcoholic 1st husband and it was horrible and I worried every time he went out he’d never make it back so I do understand their fear for her and the hold her problem has over all their lives. As much as I do like Brandi and see where she is coming from I do think she needs to think before she speaks. She’s an adult woman and needs to start acting like one.

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

    Starz-your blog is just too hysterical!!! I want to pick my favorite part but I think I just love the whole honky dory blog!! Eddie looked beyond thrilled to be on the show didnt he? My Lord could he make it anymore obvious that he is over TammySue?? Alexis is her own worst enemy-she says dumb sh*t . I see Gretchen has gotten a bit dumber since last season, I didn’t think it was possible! Heather whatever! Surprisingly Vicky did annoy me so much…yet!! The new chick looks like she is going to fit right in.
    BB-thanks for all the BH blogs-you did a fantastic job!!

    I’m sure Brandi is quite pleased with herself after this season-she managed to make the whole season about her while lying through her teeth. She got in with the “power playas” by playing the poor victim who was being sued by big bad Maloof. She made herself the victim of the horrible money loving Mauricio while screaming at him to go fu*ck himself and to shut the fu*k up. Poor Brandi-all alone in the world with these mean people coming at for no reason. What will she do for an encore next season?

    • Sus says:

      I think Trampara is over Eddie too!

    • Stars99 says:

      Jill, my friend – it totally cracks me up that you picked up on “honky dory” – for some reason it just really irritated me that he didn’t say “hunky dory”… but then again… it was 3:00 AM or something like that… lolol… so we know that the wedding does actually take place, right… there are pictures somewhere, I think – unless I’m totally hallucinating… but I would have bet the farm one or both of them would not have gone through with it. I wonder if was allowed to bring a friend on the honeymoon?

  18. T-Rex says:

    I haven’t seen the Reunion went to bed early but something that really caught my eye on the blog was when LisaVpump stated that the HoofMaloof and Paul actually split up a few times during their FIRST SEASON and Paul had moved out! K for my part I would venture to say that some time during Season 2 that Paul found himself a nice little Condo or House to escape to when the HoofMaloof and he were fighting. We know he had basically “moved out” prior to this season’s filming and that he and the HoofMaloof were probably working through the details of the pre-nup and other items like temporary custody, etc. I don’t think he was living at their house, if you watch the show the very few times they showed them at the house was in a small room but not anything else like they we had scene the first two seasons. I think Paul’s belongings were long gone My feeling was, Paul did “blindside” her as to the timing of the actual filing of the legal separation. I would have assumed that the HoofMaloof wanted him to wait until after filiming had been completed so this would not have made the show and then with the Brandi issue they could blame this on her. He on the other hand probably had, had enough and figured out ScumChefToTheHoofBernie was planting information in the press about the ladies and just wanted out. I think Brandi knew of the separation and that is what was said, not the surrogacy, she probably blurted out that the marriage had been a “business arrangement” for years, well at least since Season 1 of the show.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Why even bother moving out? In a house that big, you can just move to the other side and be thousands of feet away. lol

      • Sus says:

        True! But maybe that’s how they were living already so to really make the break, he’d have to skedaddle.

      • T-Rex says:

        I believe it was easier to be “out” of the house since they both knew they were getting divorced before this season was even filming. I think they stayed together up to the date that Paul fulfilled his pre-nup(wish those documents were still on line, grrrr, they got sealed with the gag order), was fulfilled. You never saw them with the kids playing by the pool, never saw the hideous living room, except when the decorations for that party were all there. You only saw them at his office, at some parties, and in some very small room while they were crouched together on a couch and note nothing else in that room wasa shown. Oh and another thing to note that at that Vodka party one of the staff clearly stated that Paul had “gone home” and the next day papers were filed. Paul was long gone.

        • Sus says:

          If true, then Adrienne’s only reason coming to the Lisa and Ken’s renewal ceremony was make sure every room of Lisa’s house has furniture with tanner on it.

          • T-Rex says:

            Bwahahahaha! Here is the other thing, it makes SO much more sense that most of the ladies weren’t falling all over themselves about this and making more of a fuss than they did, because they all KNEW Paul had been gone for quite some time. I am NOT buying it that VileKyle and ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealerLypsMcgee did not know about the separation and I think LisaV was politely trying to call Murray out on this because he most certainly knew, probably sold Paul the new house he was already living in!

          • princesspindy says:

            HAHAHAHA!!! omg, that’s funnyyyyy!!!

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            LOL…..

        • mrspeabody says:

          I caught that “he went home” statement too and thought guess this was after they separated. What I don’t get is why she was so upset the next day at Lisa’s party if they weren’t living together and already knew they were getting a divorce. what was the big deal? Wash it because he served her and she didn’t get to serve him? I guess that must have embarassed her

    • Sus says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if you are right. This whole season felt weird with Adrienne and Paul. I have no taste because I like Paul (I have an inappropriate crush on Corey from Teen Mom so I know I have troubles). I think he’s funny and likes to have a good time. All the bickering seemed to come from Adrienne.

      I was glad to see Paul say that Brandi had nothing to do with their marriage ending. Because if they did blame Brandi, it would have been ridiculous.

      • T-Rex says:

        See I think this was the “setup” IMO once Brandi said what she said, which she should NEVER have said. The HoofMaloof was figuring that she could deflect all the blame of the demise of their marriage by using VileKyle and the MorallyCorrupFayeKR. Make her look like the “victim” of the Lisa/Brandi/Yolo group and stating that LisaV was using Brandi as her mouthpiece, EPIC FAIL. Well, MorallyCorruptFayeKR stuck to the script, because she didn’t realize that HoofMaloof would be fired and she was still vying vehemently to get on the show as a fulltime HW. Even VileKyle by season’s end finally got the “clue phone” that she wasn’t going to come across well this season, and sort of backed out of the situation by season’s end and even defended Brandi at least once.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          ITA, T-Rex

        • nyc mama says:

          I agree but I noticed tonight after watching the reunion part 2 for a 2nd time that Kyle smiling when they showed the clip where Faye used her Chanel line to Brandi as if she was enjoying it. So I don’t think that Kyle got the clue even after Adrienne didn’t show up. I don’t think Kyle has a clue about many things even when she is figuratively hit over the head.

    • VV says:

      Good point and you might be right. IMO.

    • mrspeabody says:

      I think you are right because remember Kyle said is was never about the surrogacy. I think she let the cat out of the bag about the marriage being a fake. It really makes more sense with how they reacted about it and Brandi did say something about it last year at the reunion. Maybe that is what they wanted her to take back on twitter after last year’s reunion and why they had Bernie put out the horrible stuff about her being a mother.

  19. Obsessed w RH says:

    While I do see both sides of the coin with regards to Brandi I think she did herself a disservice last night by pushing the envelope with her comment about Kyle. I am for the record a HUGE fan of Brandi because I too tell it like it is and am brutally honest. I find no need to be fake or to pretend when the truth is what people really want/need to hear. While on some level the underlying statement Brandi was trying to articulate about Kyle may have been true, the way she said it just made her look like a vindicitve b*tch. There are ways to “soften the blow” even when stating the truth. I think Brandi needs to reevaluate the way in which she delivers her message. Yolanda is extremely honest but manages to do a better job of delivering what can sometimes be a very harsh truth, in a less biting way.

    Kyle similarly needs to do some introspection and look at how vapid she comes across. The crocodile tears aren’t fooling anyone and quite frankly they are so frequent that no one believes she is truly upset/hurt about whatever it is she’s crying about. Kyle also needs to own up to her lies/twofaced-ness and talking out of both sides of her mouth. Nothing is more frustrating to me when you’re OBVIOUSLY caught stirring the pot/talking out of both sides of your mouth and you just can’t be honest about it.

    I almost feel like Kyle needs a dose of “Brandi-reality” and Brandi needs a dose of “Kyle-Head in the Clouds” and the two of them would be much better off.

    Finally, Kim NEEDS to be off of this show. I realize it may be the only thing she has but quite frankly she is so mentally fragile that she should not be on the show. She was HARPING on how Brandi almost KILLED her with those comments from last year on this year’s show and crying as if they had happened the day before. She is mentally unstable and seeing these shows repeatedly ad nauseum air and seeing the footage constantly cannot be good for her mental rehabilitation. If she needs money from the show quite frankly Kyle should pony up and give her sister what she needs so she can stop exploiting herself and her addiction for a paycheck.

    • Sus says:

      When Andy was talking about their supposed net worths, Lisa said it right. If those numbers were correct, none of them would be sitting on that couch.

      It’s too bad that working your entire childhood in Hollywood doesn’t make you set for life. Or, maybe it did and Kim spent it all. Whatever the situation is, it’s horrible that Kim has to be humiliated on TV and the internets for weeks on end to get a pay check. Further, she’s humiliated on TV by her sister’s hand.

      Who cares what Brandi does in regards to Kim. Because nothing she does can compare to what Kyle does.

      • Stars99 says:

        Do you think that Kim spent it all… or did her family spend it all? I don’t think they had as many laws in place that protected the earnings of child actors back then… I thought that was part of the layers of Kim’s issues with Kyle… but I may be just hallucinating again…

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Yes yes yes, Obsessed!

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I agree, Brandi really needs to learn to choose her words wisely.

      Also, I really feel like Kim needs to be let go next season. There is nothing fun, interesting or entertaining in watching her on a constant downward slope (and everyone has to pretend she is doing so great). She’s so hard to watch. I don’t think she even knows what happened on game night at all, except that Brandi called her a crack head (or whatever she said).

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Great post RH, I too don’t think Brandi’s comment was to imply that Vyle wants Kim dead but poorly articulated that Vyle has a touch of that Munchausen by Proxy thingy & Kims issues keep her in the role of poor put upon me & a class A martyr. Remember Vyle said that when their mother died she left Kyle the mess of Kim. Not cool! I would be hard pressed as to what Kyle would have to fake cry about (that voice KMN) if Kim was off the show & did get sober for real. Lisa

      • LaineyLainey says:

        “I would be hard pressed as to what Kyle would have to fake cry about”^^^^^^^So true, Lisa Renee.

    I still have to fully watch both BH shows, caught snippets. I’m only up to Breanna going into delivery. By the way, here is that April Fools post from the Andy Cohen Fan Page on Facebook. The comments are disturbing to say the least. (Scroll down to find Jill’s picture).

  21. Sus says:

    Did anyone else laugh when Alexis’ (who was “bullied” by the other women when they told her she comes off as “pretentious”) first words on camera were about her 6000 square foot house with 5 bedrooms leading us to the “piano room” with the ugly statues that are “art”. I cracked up.

    I love her haircut.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      alexis has a new house every season.

    • Obsessed w RH says:

      I didn’t watch but thank you for that comment. This is the EXACT reason I can’t stand Alexis. It really bothered me that she jumped on the “I was bullied” bandwagon when in reality she was confronted about the fact that she comes off as pretentious and materialistic. When all you talk about is cars, houses, clothes, shoes, brand names, money etc., you ARE pretentious and materialistic. It’s like claiming defamation. Truth is a defense sweetie!!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I think Heather is pretentious-I don’t think Alexis is rich or impressive enough to be. She is more of a show-off and very materialistic.

        • Obsessed w RH says:

          Jill I think pretentious is the wrong word for Alexis. Maybe materialistic or show off or braggart….but the thing is Alexis brags about a house of cards as we’ve all seen. Heather is pretentious yes but she has the money to back it up. She doesn’t constantly talk about labels or cars or money like Alexis does. Heather is more subtle. For example, Heather carried around a Chanel beach bag but did she say LOOK I’M WEARING CHANEL. IT’S CHANEL! Or in regards to her home, she explained the size yes BUT didn’t say AND THIS IS WHAT IT COST and WHAT WE SPENT. To me it is pretty simple…heather= high class, alexis = trashy wannabe.

          • Sus says:

            Are Alexis and Jim still in the bounce house business. I wonder if their house of cards collapses enough that Alexis is going to have to show up at some 4 year old birthday party and “collapse” the bounce house that was rented.

            I haven’t like Heather since her DMV visit. Her attitude really bothered me. Now, I hate her because she wouldn’t serve onion rings after her husband requested them. I think that sucks.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I think heather believes herself to be some highbrow royal of the OC-she turns me off. She is snobby but knows when to wallow with the pigs-by pigs I mean Tamra. Heather is the type of person who would correct someone on their grammar as a way to show how much smarter she is. She is the definition of pretentious! Alexis is such a dumb bell-she can’t get out of her own way!!

          • Catseye says:

            Personally, I think the reason that she carried a CHANEL bag, is the very same reason we see/hear so much about that particular brand from Kyle, to get FREE stuff.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Catseye-I think they all do that.didnt Lisa say something about her green aviators last night?

        • realhousewifeva says:

          Okay so I didn’t watch the show but I saw the clip online where Alexis is showing off her new house and their new business and I just want to know HOW IN THE WORLD can people who have so much money problems, afford a house like that? I actually really love her house. My husband and I have NEVER filed for bankruptcy and we have a good savings, and I cannot afford the house of my dreams with all those fancy upgrades. How the hell do they do it?

        • HuskerHuny says:

          Alexis was not bullied! But she was attacked by three people who have no room to talk. Yes, Alexis comes across as materialistic (big deal!), but for Tamra, Gretchen and Heather to call her out about it, hello pot, meet kettle. I don’t think Alexis is the smartest girl in the room, but she certainly isn’t mean. Would I be friends with her? Probably not, but I see no reason why she needed to be ganged up on. The Three Idiots have no redeeming values that I can see and therefore, they need to keep their opinions to themselves. Take a big look in the mirror girls and try to see what’s looking back at you.

          • Sus says:

            I’d be friends with her because it would be a trainwreck. I wouldn’t be able to help myself.

            • princesspindy says:

              lol, it would be fun to see how long it would take for my “innocent” comments to make Jim’s head explode….I love to troll…

          • Obsessed w RH says:

            I could be totally naive in saying this but i THINK that the whole premise for the Alexis’ confrontation MAY have been just a “ok let’s point out something that maybe she is unaware of because it isn’t a great quality.” I know, who are they to do that blah blah but honestly, at least in my friendships, I value when my friends may bring things to my attention about myself that aren’t my best qualities. I value my friends’ opinions and they value mine. I think it helps make me a more well-rounded person and I am always looking to better myself.

            Now with the confrontation of Alexis like I said, maybe that is where it came from and then it just bubbled over from frustration, annoyance or I don’t know. I personally don’t think they went into it like we’re gonng GET HER. That being said, Alexis was not bullied and I really would like her to stop using that word. She was confronted. I also would not go as far as using the word attack because that is very strong and I personally don’t believe she was attacked. These women are grown, they know when they’re being confronted and while Alexis isn’t the smartest woman in the room she certainly could distinguish the difference between confrontation and bullying. I don’t think she is without fault specifically because she jumped on the bullying bandwagon. She may not be a brain surgeon but I’m sure she figured out that she could jump on that bandwagon and garner sympathy for herself especially since she wasn’t super well-liked going into the season.

            That being said, the whole point of this was to point out that Alexis is materialistic and obviously doesn’t see that quality in herself. Big deal? Probably not, just something I wanted to point out.

            • Sus says:

              If the women had good intentions of telling Alexis she’s pretentious, they would have done it off camera. I think what they said was spot on, but it was very mean to do it on camera.

            • realhousewifeva says:

              Tamra told Alexis in the episode or two before that she can’t stand her and didn’t want to be friends with you. When someone who hates you is telling you that you are pretentious, stuck up, etc..it’s not coming from a good place. Plain and simple. It’s not Tamra’s place to tell anyone what they need to change about themselves when she is the lowest piece of trash of all.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I don’t think she was bullied either-but they did try to bitch her to death!!!

        • Catseye says:

          I agree. Hey, wasn’t it Heather who had to bring up to her kids about what they ate during “summer in the Hamptons,” when talking about the clambake or whatever the heck she had. Gee, last year when Vicki did what seemed like the exact same type of dinner, Terry said it was “low rent,” and Gretchen had to squeal and make inappropriate sexual comments about the food.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            All I needed to know about Heather & her ways I saw last night when she used a cracker to destroy a lobster tail. She is from Chappaqua, land of Wingfoot & home to the Clintons. She should know better. Bougey bony ass bitch who thumbed her nose at a crawfish boil & thinks a clam bake calls for formal seating. Oh & give your husband some phuckin Onion rings you castrating wench, Lisa

            • princesspindy says:

              I know give him the Onion Rings, geeze, at least the fatty foods will kill him faster and since she hates him so much…..she is just not thinking ahead!!

        • Powell says:

          Yes JNNTJ. Good point. I don’t know Alexis’ background from growing up but I wonder if they had very little money & since she’s been an adult w/some money that this is how she expresses now being able to afford things? Kind of like hoarders. On the show Hoarders quite a few of these people had something traumatic that happened to them like a fire that destroyed everything so now they cant bear to let things go. All of the OC HWs have bragged that they have this & that but Alexis is the only one that has been confronted about it & she’s still doing it.

    • Stars99 says:

Thanks so much to all of you. Dropping in here continues to be one of the best parts of my day. I wish Andy would put some of you on the couch opposite Kyle, Tamra, and… a number of others on the Fantasy Reunion list. Love to all of you.

    • Stars99 says:

      Awww… thanks, luvmygirls… glad to see you’re reading even if you don’t watch the show… feel free to vicariously snark, though! The more snark, the better!

  23. HuskerHuny says:

    I really need to blow off some steam. Isn’t anyone else extremely offended about Tamra using my Lord’s name in such an offensive manner? She did it last year and I read and heard many who were as disturbed by it as me. But here she goes again. Obviously she doesn’t have a moral compass to show her a better way.

    I’m a Christian, a flawed Christian, but a Christian nonetheless. I recently left the church into which I was baptized, confirmed and married in and went to join a newly formed non-denominational church. Even though I am in my mid-50s and raised my children in the same church into which I was, for the first time I think I now know what it is to be a true Christian. I fail at this daily, but that doesn’t mean I don’t keep trying.

    If I’m living my faith, I should try and find compassion for Tamra and her much twisted view on what Jesus is and how his name should be used, but it just makes me sick to my stomach. It’s not funny. Prayers are in order for her, but wow, I’m struggling with that.

    I wish she could watch her actions and words and see how hateful and hurtful she is and that she could find a way to present herself as a woman with morals and values. Take the higher road Tamra – it’s nicer up here.

    • Sus says:

      For one thing, Tamara didn’t coin the phrase Jesus Jugs. She got it from a blogger. I think she’s more guilty for not sourcing where she got it. For another, it reflects poorly on Tamara and not Jesus. It’s rude and crude but that’s expected from Tamara. If Tamara talked about being a Christian and then said it, I’d be critical.

      I thought it was funny in light of how Alexis waxes on about her faith in same breath as waxing on about her house of cards wealth. If there was such a thing as a Jesus Barbi, Alexis would be the model for it.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Tamra says things for shock value. She is low rent and will stay that way forever. She is mean and spiteful and full of hate for most women-especially married ones who praise their husbands. Every thing she says about Alexis comes from jealousy-it makes her ugly. I do not have a marriage like Alexis and I wouldn’t be able to tolerate the way her husband talks down to her but it works for her. It seems to make Tamra hate her and her beliefs-and that because Tamra is stupid and mean!!

      • Stars99 says:

        Jill – I’m sure that Tamra has a whole pre-written list of digs that she plans to use all season-long as the situation arises. I also felt that way about Gretchen a couple of times as I watched this episode – It’s almost like Slade sits down and tries to write jokes for her – but she’s just too lame to even be able to carry it off with a modicum of humor.

      • lillybee says:

        So true.

    • lizzle says:

      I think Alexis is doing Christianity a disservice. My parents are examples of Christians that take their faith to heart and everyone that knows my parents, see the light that shines from within them. I don’t see a light inside Alexis. I am no longer religious and when I see Alexis… I am reminded of all the reasons that I left religion behind.

      And HuskerHuny, even though you are flawed, as everyone is flawed… from what I read from you, I think you look within yourself and reflect… which leads me to believe that you are trying to walk the talk. I don’t really see that in Alexis.

      As for Tamara, she is doing her diligent duty as a housewife. I think someone here mentioned that Andy said Tamara was the perfect housewife. I assumed it was because she will answer any question in her TH with brutal honesty and snark. She will lay it all out there and rarely will keep anything inside. And this, of course, brings the conflict needed to sustain the show. She is one of the more offensive housewives.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I think her comment was really disgusting but then again so is she…while most people couldn’t say something like that, it’s nothing more than a hiccup for her.

      • Stars99 says:

        RR – Yes, Tamra and her comment are disgusting… But then again, we can’t expect pure water to flow from a sewer mouth…

    • Stars99 says:

      HuskerHuny – I’ve got to say that Tamra really offended me, too – actually, to the point of going back and forth about whether or not I should even include her comments in the recap. I actually almost took them out several times – but her words were so horrible and I think that she deserves to be accountable to the viewers for what she says… and I do believe she will ultimately be accountable, too – and she really should be shaking in her boots…

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Thanks to all for those opinions. Nice to know I’m not alone out here in fly-over country. Let’s all hope that Tamra can find the good place in her heart and act from it. Oh, c’mon . . . who am I kidding! Keep the great blogs coming Stars and never be afraid of offending by using words from someone else’s mouth. You’re just reporting what you heard!

    RHONJ starts Sunday, June 2nd. No official new housewives. Which means Kim D & Jennifer Dalton are considered friends of the housewives.

  25. Sus says:

    Lauri coming back made me remember George’s ex-wife Gina. I hope Gina is seeing her kids now. They must all be almost 18 now.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      What happened with all of that? I remember seeing some stuff but I never knew the whole story.

      • Sus says:

        I don’t know the whole story but here’s what I know. George and Gina were married and had some kids. G&G got divorced but didn’t settle the money part. George met Lauri and they got married. G&G’s money got settled and George came over to get some of his art and landscaping. Lauri came with him when he did this. Gina videotaped the casino with the Orange County sheriffs present. Lauri was walking around with her little smirk that said “haha, I have your ex-husband and now I have your art and landscaping”.

        G&G had joint custody. Gina went away for the weekend and left the kids home alone with a sibling in their 20’s. The older sibling had a party that got busted and the cops found cocaine. George went berserk and said Gina was irresponsible and took her to court to get custody of the minor kids and won. Then according to Gina, G&L turned the kids against Gina and wouldn’t allow the kids to visit Gina. The 14 year old girl (at the time) sent out some dramatic emails that said George was beating her and locking her away in a mean boarding school.

        Gina then went on twitter and claimed that the 14 year old was being held hostage somewhere and no one would help her. She created a bunch of you-tube videos talking about how her daughter was locked away while the daughter was on twitter saying her mother was a raving maniac.

        Meanwhile, Lauri’s kids – can’t remember the cat crap condo kid’s name and Sophia were on twitter tormenting Gina.

        Corrections and/or revisions welcome.

        Now I’m going to crawl away in shame that I know this stuff enough to vomit into a comment box about it.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Holy crap!!! Thank you-I didn’t know I was going to get such great detail!! Don’t crawl away…I may have a few questions…hahaha!! Thanks for the info!

          • Sus says:

            Hee! I forgot the best part. Gina’s son showed up one day with some kid whose mother kicked him out. The kid turned out to be Lauri’s son what’s his name who was on drugs. Gina let him stay at the house for months because Lauri wouldn’t let him come home. Lauri was beside herself.

            That kid is now a baby daddy with some girl who he fights with on Facebook.

            • Sus says:

              So that’s another Real Housewives grandbaby!

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Oh my Lord…this family can have a show of their own!!!

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              The cat crap condo kid is Ashley and the what’s his name son is Josh. You know the details-I remember the names!!

              • Sus says:

                LOL – yes Ashley and Josh! Now I’m remembering the OC Angels fiasco and those two girls fighting at the photo shoot. It was never said but I always thought the two girls were fighting over Lou. Then I was creeped out thinking that!

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Ewwww I thought they same thing-that whole OC Angels thing was creepy and strange!

        • realhousewifeva says:

          WOW I had never heard any of this!

  26. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Last night during the reunion they showed a clip of Brandi saying that the Maloof marriage was a business relationship and that she thinks they do not live together. Lisa asks her where she heard that and Brandi looks at her with a shit eatin’ grin. A few minutes later they cut back to the couch and Lisa is saying how Paul has moved out a few times and that she has know that since season 1 but never said anything…makes me wonder about mouthpieces.

    • BB says:

      If she heard it from Lisa, then why would Lisa risk exposing herself by asking that question? My guess is Brandi heard it from her friend Geneva.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Because no one cares anymore-Adrienne is done and everyone hates her so there is nothing to lose or because she wanted Adrienne to know that she knows her secrets. Who knows why these women do anything-they are mysteries to me!

    • T-Rex says:

      In this case I think that Brandi learned this from her friend that worked for them, the one that actually received the letter from a lawyer, and sorry LisaV knew because well neighbors talk, and mostly the “help” talk they always have the pulse on what is going on in the neighborhood. I don’t think this one was a setup at all.

    • lizzle says:

      Brandi mentioned that her and Adrienne had mutual friends (plural) in her book… so her info could have come from one or more of these friend(s). Brandi holds her real friendships near and dear and I don’t really get that from Adrienne… so I can see how mutual friends might not have a problem with unloading to Brandi about Adrienne ….as Adrienne doesn’t really give enough to get back the loyalty friends usually show one another. All speculation, of course. But the info didn’t necessarily have to come from Lisa…. just as the info Brandi spewed didn’t necessarily have to come from Geneva.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Of course it’s all speculation..on all our parts. Bravo sets it up that way and we take it in which ever direction suits us.

  27. pat says:

    I went to sleep last night trying to figure out how a grown adult woman has a sh!t stain on her pillow. Still scratching my head over that.

    • Sus says:

      The questions that these shows create.

    • catmom1 says:

      I actually have a theory about this. I have knee issues. Because of this, I sleep with a pillow between my knees/legs. This pillow is old, worn, and thin, but it is the perfect thickness for this use and I would hate to lose it. My husband used to make fun of me for this, till he found out it helped him as well. Now he’s quite territorial about “his” leg pillow. Anyhow, my theory is Kim sleeps w/ a pillow between her knees, and somehow it worked it’s way up to/near her butt and she got poop on it. That’s never happened to us, but who knows, maybe it happened to Kim.

      • Sus says:

        I thought of that. It still doesn’t explain why Yolanda was walking through the airport with it. To me, it seems like Kim was too out-of-it from od’ing on her water pills to notice it. If she had noticed it, she would have taken the case and either threw it out or put in her baggage and steal a clean pillow case from the hotel.

        Kim sat there on the reunion couch crying that she was sober all season when the film doesn’t show that. I’m sick of it. Like I said, I’ll watch Intervention if I want to see that crap. No one is going to make me believe that woman isn’t on something. Prescribed, illegal whatever. She’s on something. Her mind is never clear on film. Even at the reunion I think she was on something.

        • BB says:

          She definintely has big time problems. I thought is was creepy when she was sitting there with a vacant stare twirling the ends of her hair while Taylor was calmly and quietly talking to her.

          • catmom1 says:

            When Kim was doing the vacant stare hair twirling thing, all I could think of was Betty Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. I believe the correct term for Kim is, “The girl just ain’t right.” Not sure if there is enough therapy in the world to help her or Kyle.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I just copied the link to post here! You are Johnny on the spot!!!

    • catmom1 says:

      Thanks for posting BB. A couple of the new shows look interesting and I’m glad to see RHONY is coming back.

    • T-Rex says:

      HEHEHEHEH! Don’t think TrailerTrashTrampySue is going to get that spinoff for her gym since they have a show like that already signed and sealed. By the time Eddie gets around to possible marrying her(still think that isn’t going to happe) those “getting married” spinoffs will be truly old news.

    • VV says:

      No MM?…..Can this be true!!!!!!! No more Stanker?!

  28. Rebecca says:

    I just fired off an email to the National Commission for Social Justice regarding the racial slur hurled by Dr V last night. How this network can go berserk over a homophobic slur and allow every other offensive insult to be thrown out at whim – and this time by a “mental health expert” is beyond me. Andy Cohen should immediately be fired for allowing this to air. I hope the Sons of Italy have a field day with this.

    • trudie says:

      I don’t even know who Dr V is. What did she say? Was it on WWHL?

    • lizzle says:

      Are you talking about the two identical twins… where one is gay and the other is not, but feels very uncomfortable around his gay brother. I think Dr V is on LA Shrinks… but maybe I am mixing up the shows.

    • Rebecca says:

      No, she threw out the “g” word to describe her Italian-American father. You can joke and chide all you want, but you can’t just throw racial slurs around. My mother, who is the nicest human being on the planet, would slap someone’s face if she heard it.

      For those that don’t know, the word is equivalent of calling an African-American an “n” word or a homosexual the “f” word. But of course Bravo allowed it on air. Disgusting and hateful.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Oh. I am sorry that you are upset. Hopefully, she will apologize.
        Did all those kids on the Jersey Shore throw that word around a lot? I stopped watching that trash after season 1 but I could have swore they used it for both guys and girls.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Okay I’m glad you posted this because I honestly didn’t even know it was considered a racial slur! On Jersey Shore it was used left and right to describe themselves, and they seemed very proud of it, so I never even assumed there was a negative attachment to it.

      • lizzle says:

        I watch the episodes online, so I haven’t gotten to the last one. I’m sorry that upset you. I thought you were talking about her using the “n” & “f” word in therapy with the two brothers. I know many African Americans use the “n” word with each other… but I guess even that depends on the person and it is offensive to many, if used in any capacity. I am not Italian American or African American, so I don’t know how any of those words feel when used. I’m surprised Dr V wouldn’t recognize the fact that many would be offended. Good for you for taking action.

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

    Hey where has ice been??

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I am sure I saw her a couple of blogs ago? Maybe she hasn’t seen the show yet so she is laying low until she does?

    Stars!!! Great Job!! My favorite snark out of all the snark~~~~~~~

    “””it’s not a beach themed clam bake – it’s a Beyotch themed clam bake!”””

    I see what you did there!

  31. VV says:

    I am pretty sure I heard Lisa last night say that she wouldn’t want to work with Mauricio after Mauricio said he would love to work with them.

    I also heard Paul said that Brandi had “graciously apologized to us” meaning Charo and he.

    Vanderpump Rules is coming back next season. I also read that Lisa is opening yet another restaurant in West Hollywood. Go Lisa!

    • Rebecca says:

      I could have sworn Paul said that Brandi graciously called them to apologize.

      • VV says:

        He did. Go to Bravo and play the TH of Paul from last night. I just did. Proving once again Adrienne IS A LIER.

  32. melthehound says:

    Dang it Stars…. Now I want onion rings. Couldn’t care less about the clambake that apparently had no clams (if I read correctly), I just want the onion rings. You’re blog has served to remind me why I hate each and every one of them on OC.

    Another great RHOBH recap by Julie Klausner @ Vulture. Love her queries about the pillow http://www.vulture.com/2013/04/real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-3-reunion-part-two-recap.html

    • catmom1 says:

      Great line in vulture recap, referring to Paul

      “I hope he one day falls in love with a woman who is not an H.R. Pufenstuf character with a soul made out of poisonous gas, and maybe even one who is less than 40 years younger than him.”

    • catmom1 says:

      My other favorite line from vulture, talking about Yolanda

      “I would love to see a “Godzilla versus Mothra” showdown between her and Faye Resnick, but I don’t want to even evoke the MCFR in recap form once more, because I’m terrified that, like Beetlejuice, she will appear in person after one recites a certain number of incantations.”

  34. catmom1 says:

    The thing with the pillow is starting to remind me how we were all trying to make sense of Kelly’s “satchel of gold” comment.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      It was so funny when Bethenny revealed what it was really about. Once it was qualified it didn’t sound so crazy…but Bethenny didn’t throw her life preserver. I don’t think I would have either.,,it amused me so much.

    • Rebecca says:

      So what is so important about this soiled pillow that Kim couldn’t part with it? It was a freaking 20 ounce pillow, so why wasn’t she carrying it around if it was so significant?

      • catmom1 says:

        You can’t apply logic to crazy, just like you can’t argue with crazy.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Why couldn’t Kim manage to carry a pillow. I mean if she was that out of it..why didn’t they get her a wheel chair or something.

  35. djprincessc says:

    The second part of the Beverly Hills reunion was pretty boring. They didn’t talk about Camille, they didn’t talk about Faye or Marissa. I mean why even have these women on the show if they aren’t even going to be acknowledged in the reunion, and I don’t like any of these women in the slightest, Marissa I could take or leave but still say something about all the shit that went down the whole season! They didn’t even really talk about Kyle throwing Taylor under the bus about not knowing where Kennedy was, they just kinda glossed over it. Anyways I think we are LONG overdue for a new host and new format.

  36. windycitywondering2 says:

    Why was Faye’s behavior this season not dealt with at the reunion? She ruined every event with her attacks on Brandi and we had to suffer through all those scenes with no pay off at the reunion!

    • nyc mama says:

      It will be on next week and Kyle as usual excuses/defends/justifies Faye and her behavior. She is also blaming editing a la JZ.

      Kyle isn’t capable of seeing beyond the end of her own nose.

      She attended DWTS last night yet was the only one who didn’t tweet to vote for Lisa. She has been called out on this on twitter.

  37. shamrockblonde says:

    I only caught one part of the reunion last night – it was Kim responding to Brandi’s comment about Kyle not truly supporting her – Kim sat there, unable to speak, stroking her hair, and it was so clear to see that she was beyond upset – she wanted to be anywhere but there – that alone was heartbreaking to watch – but what she finally did say brought tears to my eyes – she said that she knew that this was her last shot – that she would probably not survive another relapse – and, from what I saw, somewhere in her heart, listening to her sister making cracks about what state she might be in – both while in Paris and in the past seasons – did more than hurt her – it terrified her – when someone is so far out on that ledge, even though some part of her knows that she is wreaking havoc in the lives of her loved ones, to see them – not wonder, but actually see them – talking about them with others is a crushing thing – there is something so delicate about her – she is not mature emotionally either, which makes it very hard for her to express herself in a strong clear way – its a bit like watching someone holding on to a single thread over a raging ocean – my prayers remain with her – and shame on Bravo – I understand the thinking that they are tied to her because if she was let go from the show and something happened to her, the backlash alone would be devasting to Bravo, but why not turn it around and have part of the series showing Bravo taking an active part in aiding her, instead of exploiting her –

    my thoughts on Kyle is that she is trying so hard to come across witty, that she has completely forgotten that to her sister, she is her safe haven – watching her make allegedly witty or funny comments serves only Kyle, and Kim does not have the emotional stability to see as anything else than her sister thinking her a fool – plus her touching her hair that much is just sooo annoying – I get why, but yuck – and when they switched couches, my first reaction would have been to wrap my arms around my sister, not my hair –

    and Stars – that recap – oh sooooo good!!! thanks for saving me from having to actually hear and see T and G – my tv thanks you too as something may well have been hurled at it – and this was the first episode!!!

    • Rebecca says:

      BUT…. Kim boasted abut how healthy her doctors told her she was during the season. She was in good enough shape to have her nose reconstructed.

    • Nancy says:

      A+ Thank-you.

    • Stars99 says:

      Aww, thanks, Shamrock… we wouldn’t want your tv to suffer! = )

    • kidsrfunny says:

      What Kim said, about not surviving another relapse, is straight-up AA. Many people share in meetings “I know I have another drunk in me, but I don’t know if I have another recovery.” Some rehab centers and some AA’ers push the idea, that if you drink again, you will die. I’m sure she believes it and means it and it scares her. That’s what 12-step programs teach as a healthy fear.

      Regarding her emotional immaturity, many people in the field of addiction believe that your emotional growth stops at the time you begin drinking. So many alcoholics/addicts, according to the “experts”, are stuck in their teenage years. Through recovery, emotional maturity can be reached, but it doesn’t happen when you put down the drink or drug. It takes time, a lot of it.

      Kyle’s thinking that when Kim stopped drinking, everything would be fine, is typical of friends and family of alkies/addicts, who have not taken the time or effort to educate themselves about the disease.

      (steps down)

    Can someone who is on twitter verify that Lisa said her DWTS performance is being filmed for next RHBH season – the picture of Taylor, Kyle, Kim and Brandi at that performance would mean they are all coming back???? Nooooooooooooooo say it ain’t soooooooooooooooo!

    • nyc mama says:

      No she did not tweet that. I saw them all there in the fron’t row last night when I watched. They were all there except Yolanda who is here in NYC.

      She did tweet this:

      Yes #pumprules is coming back,so is RhofBH and yes I am opening another restaurant,in boys town!#GLAAD
      All rumors true

      Nothing about filming DWTS.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        In the article above she talks about how they are filming now-(the first article)

    • realhousewifeva says:

      UGH, that would actually make sense since Lisa and Kyle aren’t even speaking now and Kyle has not tweeted about Lisa on DWTS at all- it makes sense if she was just there for filming, and of course, Mauricio the 7th housewife.

      • Nancy says:

        lol

      • nyc mama says:

        I agree it would make sense why they were there but I don’t know why ABC would allow Bravo/NBC to film and are they filming BH already?

        She is quoted in that article so maybe but I take all these sites with a grain of salt since they quote many and it usually turns out wrong but who knows? Yolanda isn’t there because she is in NYC as is Marisa but Mohamed was there too. Marisa has tweeted that they haven’t signed anyone yet.

        They did go out after based on this (another grain of salt) website:
        http://www.realitytea.com/2013/04/02/exclusive-lisa-vanderpump-kyle-richards-faye-resnick-daniel-dicriscio-dwts-party-photos-friend-defend-brandi-glanville-gossip/

        • nyc mama says:

          Just looked at all their twitter accounts and they are scattering so I wonder if they are filming.

          Marisa was here but now enroute back to CA.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            that’s cool that she’s (Brandi) still riding the wave of success from her book being so well-received..even though she is a potty mouth. She is who she is. and to quote the Don “It is what it is”…even if people don’t like it. I have to think and hope she will mellow and not feel the need to blurt things out? maybe? with her new feelings of self-sufficiency and self-confidence? I hope??? But you know, what some of us are offended by is that she’s not fake. She just vomits out whatever she thinks. It would require a little tiny bit of phoniness to hold back and try, TRY to be more diplomatic. I’m still happy for her.

          • realhousewifeva says:

            I think a bunch of them are going to NYC to film the Bravo summer commercial, from the tweets I saw from Gretchen and others.

    I can’t believe what she has done to her face, so sad. This is what the housewives are going to look like. No growing old gracefully in that crowd.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Sad. i saw a recent interview with Reiko from the first season of Vancouver housewives and it was alarming how much she looked like Adrienne Maloof! Even Brandi is starting to look related to Adrienne with that hair color and all the frozen face work. I hope she stops

    In the recap it says that Tamra said Alexis was going to sue her for calling her Jesus Jugs? I’m pretty sure I was reading the tweets at the time, and the talk of suing Tamra was about the comments she made about Jim selling drugs or something…not the Jesus Jugs comment. She knows that’s the case, too

  43. BB says:

    Hey guys. I had to come back to VA today because my mom is sick and I have to keep an eye on her. She’s prone to getting high fevers and acting all cray cray. Anyways, just talked to the DD. She went to the hospital in the middle of the night because she thought her water had broken (it hadn’t, just the mucous plug stuff). They sent her home and told her not to come back until her contractions were 3 to 5 minutes apart. Well, she’s pretty uncomfortable right now and the contractions are about 5 or 6 minutes apart but not consistent. I told her to get her butt back to the hospital and tell them to suck it. The worse that can happen is that they’d send her back home, but I’m thinking not. She and her hubs are going and will let me know if she’s admitted. Anyways, it’s going to be dicey because I don’t want to leave my mom, but I def want to be in the vicinity when the baby’s born. I will not get anywhere near DD or the grandson because I’ve been sick with a cold (although I’m pretty much over it) and plus my mom is sick although I don’t think hers is contagious (she’s has this lots and I’ve never gotten sick from it). Only to me this would happen. Anyway, I’ll keep you guys posted.

      BB, hoping your mom gets well soon and that DD has that baby soon. How exciting for you all!

      When I was in labor with my first child, I kept calling the doctor because I was having contractions and they told me the same thing – 3 to 5 minutes apart. They also told me to have a glass of wine and take a warm bath. This went on for two days (I joked that I was drunk and pruny by the time I finally gave birth) and my husband finally just took me to the hospital. Turns out my contractions never became consistent. With 2nd and 3rd child I didn’t listen to anyone and just went to the hospital when I knew it was time.

                Personally

              • nyc mama says:

                I agree. But since she is an adult I am not sure anyone can do anything about it and we saw Kim thinks she is fine.

                She doesn’t seem to be coming to NY for the upfronts, I doesn’t seem like Kyle is either or at least neither of them have tweeted that they are so maybe? One can hope. They can have her make appearances as a friend but she needs to work on her sobriety and her mental health. I feel very sorry for her children who seem relatively grounded considering the family they were raised in.

                • Nancy says:

                  She did something right as her children seen very healthy and grounded.

                    Her oldest daughter was arrested for a DUI and her second daughter reportedly lives with her Aunt Kathy. Also it was reported that her son was dating Ken’s (her boyfriend last season) daughter! Not saying this makes them bad kids.

    Just got the dreaded question: “What’s for dinner?” It made me think of the discussion the other night on the blog. My mom used to tell a story about a friend of hers who had a nervous breakdown. One day her husband said: “What’s for dinner?” and she opened the freezer, yelling “decisions, decisions” and started throwing all the food in the freezer at his head. I cannot tell you how often I have been tempted to do the same thing!~

    • Rebecca says:

      My mom had a pretty regular schedule of what was for dinner: Monday chicken, Tuesday meatloaf, Wednesday macaroni, Thursday pork chops, Friday fish. If we asked her what was for dinner she told us to look at the calendar. She had six kids – her regimented meals were actually brilliant organization.

  55. Cityside says:

    I am not sure why some here are saying that what Brandi said was mean…..Kim agreed!
    She did not say Kyle wanted Kim dead, come on now. Kim was saying if she did not get sober she was going to die…Brandi said it seems like Kyle wants Kim to fail. If you listen to Kyle’s THs you get that impression big time and Kim agreed by what she said to Kyle. Saying Brandi said or implied DEAD is just wrong and mean.
    Seriously, if I get to pick a mean girl it would be Kyle.

    City

    • Nancy says:

      Exactly. I agree with Brandi. Kyle is the mean one.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I agree, Cityside. In no way did Brandi say or imply that she thought Kyle wants to see Kim die, that’s ludicrous. But I did think what she said was mean, whether she meant it to be or not. I also happen to think there’s some truth to it – there’s a part of Kyle that is afraid of the unknown that comes with a sober Kim because it means they’ll have to relate in a whole new way. But as I see it, it’s just another internal conflict within Kyle, she seems to have a few if those.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Yes, Brandi did not literally say that verbatim that Kyle wants Kim to die…but that is likely what will happen if Kim fails to remain sober. Brandi says thinks Kyle doesn’t want Kim to succeed yet death is the consequence. It all comes back around to Brandi not appreciating the weight that her words and her remarks make . And where there is blow back…instead of her being accountable she wants people to step in and shield her from it.

      Last year on twitter she complained that ‘some jerk tried to kill themselves by jumping from a parking garage’ and how it made her late for a movie. When followers complained she tried to back peddled and say she didn’t know that he was hurt…I guess she also didn’t appreciate that someone who had to be living with a great amount of pain and sadness, would be worthy of a little compassion. I am sure if Kyle said the same thing…people would be calling for her head on a platter.

      Even if you take what Brandi said at face value and the consequences of what would happen if Kim relapses are ignored…(and I don’t see why they should be) what Brandi said was still wrong and mean of HER.

      What is it that people want Kyle to say about her sister. What are the magic words everyone is looking for?

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Also Kim did not agree with Brandi at all. Kim was obviously tremendously hurt and taken back. Kim basically said…she is at a hypersensitive time and sometimes certain things that are said cause her to think people are questioning her sobriety.

        Honestly if that is the case…then I guess Brandi could have also pointed a finger at Lisa because she had asked if Kim had taken a sleeping pill. But well all know that isn’t going to happen.

        • Sus says:

          People would not question Kim if she didn’t claim to od on water pills. They question her sobriety because she acts like she is on something. She’s lucky I’m not on that show because every single time she said she was sober I’d be saying BS and telling her off for disrupting the group with her addiction. Every group activity has something about Kim. Is she okay? Why is she late? Why did she sleep all day? It’s ruining my show. Move her along to Dr. Drew already.

          I’m sick of her. I’m sorry she has troubles but her troubles are hers. They aren’t Kyle’s. They aren’t Brandi’s. They are hers.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            Don’t get me wrong..I totally get why everyone was worried about Kim in Paris. She was under the influence of something. I think because Kim only identifies as an alcoholic that sober to her means…not drinking. It seems like she has traded one vice for another….and unless she also gets off pills….there still won’t be a happy ending.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Brandi didn’t need to point a finger at Lisa as Lisa herself addressed what she’d said directly with Kim at the reunion part 2.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            Yes Lisa apologized and made it clear that it wasn’t her intent to undermine Kim’s sobriety…and everyone accepts that (rightly so IMO) so my question is…why isn’t Kyle given the same latitude.

      • Orson says:

        The magic words I want to hear her say is “I’ve started going to Al Anon.”

        • princesspindy says:

          Please don’t hold your breath, I like you!

        • Nancy says:

          THANK-YOU!!

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Ain’t that the truth! It’s the best thing she could do for herself and her sister.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          We don’t know what kind of help Kyle is getting.

          But if she isn’t going to Al-non, I can understand why. Kim pointed out in last years reunion..that when recognizable people go to AA meetings there are people there who comprise their confidence and sell their stories ,

          If I were Kyle I would also be reluctant to go out of fear that what ever was said would end up in a tabloid.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Has anything like that ever happened? I think it’s possible for Kyle to find a group in which she could feel comfortable and safe. Lots of famous people are in 12 step programs, and there’s nothing to stop her from asking Jennifer to help her form her own group with celebrities and other high profile people. Heck, I’ve been to regular Al-Anon meetings and people there take confidentiality very seriously. It’s part of the program, though not a step.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I don’t know what celebrity Kim was talking about but she made a point to say that after the story came out about them being in rehab..the person came back to chastise the group saying how they really need the help and the support and how betrayed they were.

              There has also been leaks when Lindsay Lohan was in rehab..

              I think that Jennifer…who is friends with ‘truth cannon’ and works for Dr. Drew (lets put it all out there for entertainment) should be the LAST person either one of the Richard sisters reach out to.

              I do think they both need help…but I think a private setting would be better. .

              • L.A. Chica says:

                Maybe you’re right about Jennifer because of her connection to Dr. Drew, but I do know someone who formed his own group of high profile types and they keep everything confidential. (I have no idea who attends his meetings.)

                People who blab when someone is trying to get help really suck.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I know…I don’t know who it was Kim was referring to..but my heart really went out to them. I can’t imagine what it’s ;like to be so fragile and get so deeply betrayed. I hope whoever did it…is so ashamed of themselves that they saw it was their rock bottom and got the help they needed.

              • L.A. Chica says:

                If nothing else Kyle could go to Al-Anon meetings and just listen, not say anything, and also study the literature. She certainly could learn a lot that way. From that point she could find a sponsor, someone she could work through the steps with one-on-one. I just believe there are ways to get the right help.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  Maybe….but Kyle doesn’t strike me as the “I will just sit her quietly and listen’ type. Again, I am happy to see we both are on the same page..Kyle DOES also need help(the whole family does) .

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Just because Kim says that she will die if she falls off the wagon doesn’t make it so. If that’s what she needs to tell herself to scare herself into staying sober, then good for her, whatever works. But unless she is planning to commit suicide if she goes back to drinking or she’s in need of a liver transplant then no one on earth knows what would happen in terms of her corporeal longevity.

        I agree with you that Brandi shouldn’t have said what she said but I disagree that she said anything remotely close to saying she thinks Kyle wants to see Kim die.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I think we are splitting hairs here. Given KIm’s age and how long she has probably been using….her physical and mental health are very much comprised. Her relationship with her family is also at stake…just because your heart is still beating doesn’t mean that you can’t lose yourself…and as such so have those who love you.

          I am glad we agree that either way..Brandi shouldn’t have said it. 🙂

          • L.A. Chica says:

            There are people who are heavy drinkers who have shocked me at long they’ve managed to keep living, despite the way they continue to abuse their bodies. Then there are those who shocked me by developing cirhosis of the liver and dying in their early thirties. I just don’t think it’s predictable, and until it actually happens there’s always another chance for sobriety imho. One may slip up make mistakes but permanently giving up on oneself is a decision.

            And yes, I’m glad that we agree on at least one point, too. 🙂

        I can’t decide what to do. My mom will probably be OK once she goes to sleep because I’ve been making sure she’s taking ibuprofen regularly to keep her fever in check. BUT I do not want to risk taking any germs over there. I am pretty much over my cold, but still have a hacky hacky pitiful cough. What to do, what to do. I want to be there to support her, but we had already talked and I was not planning on being in the room when she actually delivered the baby anyway, so that I won’t be missing. I just think some things are meant for the mom and dad only to share. The inlaws will be there plus my husband. And I will be the one babysitting when she goes back to work, so I will get the best out of the deal in the long run.

        • princesspindy says:

          How exciting!!! You definitely get the best end of this deal!!

        • Nancy says:

          That’s a hard one BB. You could go and wear a surgical mask and gloves. I agree with
          being in the room should be the husbands place but if your daughter wants you there then all bets are off. (IMHO) I’m sure your mom would be ok and I’m sure she’ll understand if you want to leave her for a little while.

        • AZGirl says:

          Congrats BB. So exciting.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      What fantastic news.

    • Orson says:

      Two, Four, Six, Eight!
      Come on BBD, dilate!

      Push it out, push it out!
      Harder, harder!

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Wow, congratulations BB! So exciting to hear about a baby on the way. 😀

  61. BB says:

    Luke Perry is going to be on Body of Proof tonight.

  62. kit9 says:

    People, I’ve just seen something so disturbing I’m shaken to the core. I was around earlier but haven’t been through all the comments so sorry if this has already been mentioned….but I just stumbled across, brace for it….. Lisa Vanderpump staring in a cheesy infomercial for I Can Believe It’s Not Butter(!)!! In fact, she has a whole channel running it for the next 24 hours. Possibly longer but I stopped searching. Our classy sophisticated Lisa doing an infomercial? Wth?! We hear her come on at the beginning in a sexy breathy Marilyn voice and says ‘Breakfast After Dark…(purrr), I love it!’ It’s basically Lisa with a chef making really bland awful meals using ICBINB. It has a real soft core porn vibe at points! Hilarious!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’d heard about those commercials…they are just on the internet, right? LOL!!!

      • nyc mama says:

        Weren’t they discussed the other day when someone said the frittata looked good?

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          The frittata looked delish and I didn’t think the commercial was so bad…just a bit hokey for the Queen.

      • kit9 says:

        No! It’s on TV! I saw it and it the channel is titled, LISA and the title says, Lisa Vanderpump Breakfast After Dark and I thought at first, and I’m not joking, that it was a porn send up using Lisa’s name. I mean, it’s a pretty good porn name, lol. It is running on some super high numbered channel, where I never go that is populated with various porn and xm radio channels. WHY is she doing them?! She need $ that much?lol

        • LaineyLainey says:

          not fer nuthing, but where do you find the porn channels? not fer nuthing

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Not fer nothing my…

          • Nancy says:

            HBO at night. There are many of them.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I don’t have HBO, booooo! So I watch “The Bible” on the History Channel.

              • Nancy says:

                LOL That was funny! You can have my porn channels as they aren’t used in this house.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                I have to be careful not to sit on my angel wings,…they’re getting all bent.

              • kit9 says:

                Lol! There’s a whole big block of porn channels on Dish. There are dedicated VOD and PPV porn too on Dish Network.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  I have direcTV. But you know, I have a little problem, while I myself like to take a lil peek, i DON’T want my husband looking at it. I’m kinda sorta insecure and super jealous. So…I guess “what’s good for the goose…” applies to me, too!!

                  • kit9 says:

                    Lol! But, what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him;)

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    Lainey I don’t want my husband looking at that either-but for different reasons. you see-I prefer “hallway sex” watching that sort of stuff gives him other ideas!

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      bwahahaha!! I totally know what you mean,…but for me, it’s cause I don’t want him comparing those women to me.

    • Realhousewifeva says:

      After vanderpump rules, nothing Lisa does can surprise me. Lol.

  63. cocfarm says:

    I am pleasantly surprised at who went home on dwts. I think it was the right one to go based on dancing ability. Yippee.

  64. LOL… just had dinner wirh mr ford and he watched OC with me… he used to watch with me way back when…. pre gretchen etc…

    hugs and peace
    bbl ???
    diva

  65. LaineyLainey says:

    Ok, Y’all know I’m a Brandi supporter. No, I’m not a bra. yuck,yuck, yuck… but I do want to point out that Brandi really wants to have her cake and to eat it, too. I was embarrassed for her…when she was preaching to Mauricio about how a man should never take that tone with a woman. WHATCHOO TALKIN’ ABOUT TRUTH CANNON!!!???? YOU VERBALLY VOMIT EVERYWHERE YOU GO!! We all just say, oh that’s just Brandi. No rules for Brandi! No diplomacy for Brandi! So Brandi, why do you expect more from Mauricio??? I love you Brandi, but what’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander. If you’re gonna dish it out like you do, be a stand-up woman and TAKE IT, as well as you dish it, little momma!!! Hey…fair is fair.

    • Nancy says:

      Ditto. She needs charm school badly but I don’t think deep down she is mean.
      Kyle is another story.

      • kit9 says:

        Brandi isn’t mean, imo. She’s vicious.

        • Nancy says:

          I think she’s really insecure.

          • kit9 says:

            Could be. I had a theory that she was a narcissist after watching the reunion. Like she thinks every thought that pops into her head is such a pearl of insight that it must be shared. No matter how inappropriate or little in the way of facts she has to go on. Ya, know? Other times, I have no explanation…like why say what she did about Kim? And, this was two seconds before/after saying her heart bleeds for poor Kim. Really? I’m sure dropping a completely pointless and cruel bit about Kim being incontinent wasn’t humiliating at all for her.

            • Nancy says:

              I agree that was mean and uncalled for.

            • Realhousewifeva says:

              I thought the pillow comment was the worst of all. It was totally mean and uncalled for and I didn’t like Brandi at all in that moment.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Can’t be a victim when you are the one screaming fu*k you and shut the fu*k up.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Well, I don’t think she’s being a victim, but she I think she is pulling the “this is how nice people speak to each other” card. or the “manners card” for short.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I feel like she always plays the victim-it’s one of the things about her that turns me off. I don’t know how you can scream at someone and then say that they treated you badly. It’s crap in my book.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Maybe I’m splitting hairs…you say she’s playing “victim” …I see her as acting “superior” but either way, it’s not cool.

        • kit9 says:

          That was just so ridiculous. Brandi, a woman known for screaming obscenities at people doesn’t think a woman should be talked to like that? Like what? He didn’t scream at her, he was actually arguing with Ken. He didn’t curse at her. I don’t think he had anything to apologize for but the mind blowing hypocrisy moment of the night was Brandi saying it was ‘cowardly’ to to talk to a woman that way. What’s cowardly is playing the ‘woman’ card when someone says something you don’t like.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Ok, this is one for the record books, I am agreeing with Kit9 about Brandi. Yeah, that’s a better way to say what bugged me about that…don’t be a badass and then pull the woman card. I love that she’s a badass…but you gotta be a stand-up woman and take it when someone comes at you.

        • nyc mama says:

          LL, I agree. I don’t see her playing victim. Kyle, Kim and Adrienne play that role on this franchise and they hafe it down to an art, not Brandi. Brandi needs to calm her mouth and self edit – no doubt about it. But one thing I give Brandi credit for is being a good friend. She has long, close friendships – Jennifer, Darren and others have confirmed that and we saw her be supportive of Lisa and Yolanda, lessons that Kyle can learn from her even though Kyle doesn’t think she needs to learn anything from anyone.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            You know, during part 2 of the reunion when Kim was chastising Brandi for talking when Kim was addressing Yolanda?…well, Kim kept saying “what are you doing?” Brandi should have said “I’m defending my friend!! Take notes, Richards sisters, this is how it’s done. ” My point, she is a faithful friend. Totally. (or until she disproves that for us)

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        And getting all gangster arms…
        For a second…it looked like the those break dancing movies I saw as a kid…where at first it looked like a fight would break out…then everyone had a dance off.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I know at the times I want to be treated like a lady…I act like one.

        There are other times…I want to be treated like the naughty little school girl I am…but I think that belongs in the porno string/convo.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          O.M.G. LOLOLOLOLOL!!! I just read this….and am now officially dying while *whisper laughing*

    • Realhousewifeva says:

      I agree. Mauricio wasn’t really yelling at her or saying anything awful. They all were heated. Now, the way Paul screamed at her is one thing, but she was overreacting with Mauricio. Part 2 of the reunion wasn’t a great look for Brandi….and I usually love her

  66. BB says:

    Baby Watch Update: She is at 9 centimeters and should be able to start pushing in about 45 minutes to an hour. Baby should be here in a couple of hours. Doctor is surprised how fast it’s going. Mom is cool as a cucumber because EPIDURALS rock! I’m so excited!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Great news… So happy things are going well!!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Thank God for epidurals!!! How exciting!!! Gosh, I feel choked up. 🙂

      • Nancy says:

        Me too. I feel like this is happening to us. BB’s going to be a grandma. 🙂

      • BB says:

        And, I made the right decision staying here with my mom. She just woke up drenching wet. Had to change her gown and stuff and she could hardly stand up. Poor thing. She’s in the have the chills, drenched in sweat cycle right now. But I did get her to eat some chicken soup for supper. It’s funny. I was just thinking while dressing my mom that caring for an elderly person is kind of like caring for a new born baby sometimes. Sad, but I’m so glad she has someone to help her even if I do lose patience at times. Some older people don’t have a close loving relative to care for them, just strangers. Didn’t mean to be a Debbie Downer. Well, back to the baby watch, which means sitting looking at my cell phone.

        • Nancy says:

          You are a very loving daughter BB. She’s knows how lucky she is.
          You will have your grandson in your arms very soon. 🙂

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I am so sorry your mom isn’t feeling better.

          I know how you kind of feel about caring for an elderly person and how it can kind of be the same as caring for a child. ( I posted something a while ago about finding an old man with dementia left alone in a car on hot day and felt I needed to call the sheriff.)

          The fact that you are with your mom right now speaks as to what kind of daughter she raised…what kind of daughter you raised…and what type of grandchild your daughter will raise.

        • princesspindy says:

          You tell your mom that she did a really great job raising you and she has to get well soon so she can see her Great-grandson!!!!!!!

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Glad to hear mom is cool as a cucumber! Epidurals definately rock too. How are you holding up BB?

    • princesspindy says:

      Yea!
      So when you say his name “Just Jack” are you going to have to throw up Jazz Hands?

  67. LaineyLainey says:

    I love it!!!

  68. Contessa says:

    I just popped over the Facebook page of Friends of Lynn, and one of the stories is that Eddie Cibrian supposedly got his newest gf pregnant and she is shopping the tabloids or something like that. I think these people are writing to Leann on her twitter. I can’t read everything that was captured (screen shots of twitter stuff) on facebook, but if this is true, Leann is going to have a serious nervous breakdown. You reap what you sow, and of course if true we can all say Karma is a Beyotch.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      oh no. I wouldn’t wish that on ANYONE!!!!!

    • Nancy says:

      Oh man. LOL I’d be running for the hills if I were him.

    • princesspindy says:

      Now Brandi’s kids are going to have to go thru this shit too!! If this is true, what a selfish asshole!!! But as gossip goes, this is some gold….. I have no sympathy for Leanne.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        She really thought he would change for Her??? hmmmm…. do you think this is why she cried about it during that interview when asked if she thought he might cheat on her, since he cheated on wife #1. If this is true, he is damn stupid.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Those poor kids-if this is true what a damn shame.

        • princesspindy says:

          He will probably go to rehab for “sex addiction” too bad there is no rehab for being a douche!!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        The way you get them…is the way you will lose them. It sucks for Brandi’s kids tho.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Apparently love Leanne style isn’t enough for Eddie to change his horn dog ways. Very sad for everyone. I hope the boys spend more time with Brandi because it isn’t going to be pleasant in the new casa if this is true.

    • nyc mama says:

      Just peeped at Leann’s twitter and some are claiming this isn’t the first time. Allegedly the last time Leann paid off the mags and the girl. This time the girl doesn’t want money, she is claiming to be in love with him. I’m not buying it but in any case I feel so sorry for those boys if it is true and they have to watch another breakup.

  69. cusi77 says:

    Good Evening everyone!

    I am in bed with some fever… I had an hallucination or…. was it true that I saw The Millionaire matchmaker Paty What’s,Her.Name. with a new story about being adopted and her biological mother was a Lesbian who did not love her and Gawsh knows what more ???

    She found a MAN on Internet (wasn’t she the one who said that Internet didn’t work for matching?)

    Wasn’t she the one who said that she was third generation of Matchmakers? What is going on!!!

    Hugs to Everyone! Thanks for the Blogs NMD, Stars, BB, all!

    @leannrimes 10m

    Hey my love @kikicaldas just heard the funniest rumor of life!!!! Btw, I’m throwing your baby shower!

  71. I Need A Life! says:

    Kim’s Pillow has a twitter account. Caught the end of Andy’s show where he gave it a Mazel!

    • princesspindy says:

      Too Funny!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        It’s kind of mean-especially since The Sheriff of the high road is making jokes about it on her twitter. Doesn’t seem like the Yolanda ” above it all” Foster she tried to portray on the show.

        • princesspindy says:

          Oh, it’s mean! But it’s funny. I will have to go look at Yo’s tweets. I don’t follow anyone so I have to look up everyone indiv.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I didn’t see any tweets from Yo to the pillow…only some contact with her and the fridge.

            And I feel a sense of shame that all that above is actually a sentence….it looks like something a maniac would say…but it’s actually my satchels of gold moment.

            • princesspindy says:

              HAHAHA!!! If it was admitted into evidence at a sanity hearing……..bye, bye.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                LOL- No kidding……if Lisa’s white couch makes twitter account..I think I am screwed.

            • princesspindy says:

              I thought I saw that she said she would wash it, but I don’t always understand twitter….

              • princesspindy says:

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  Yes, for some reason..when I looked at Yo’s homepage I could see that tweet. I only saw it when I looked at the @YolandaFoster tweets and saw the tweets to her-and her replies.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              ROTFL!

              • L.A. Chica says:

                ^^^ LOLing at RR’s satchels of gold moment. Hey, it’s a wonder we’re all not a bit off our rockers after watching all these crazy housewives. 😆

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I know…sometimes my husband will look over when I am typing and wonder what the hell I am talking about. Then when I try to explain it…I get about half way through…and he gives me this look and says…’just stop…you lost me at the Danish lady washing a poopy pillow and the fridge got jealous because it needed to be cleaned out;

        • LaineyLainey says:

          It seems like overkill for any of them to ridicule Kim at this point, doesn’t it?

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            Talk about cutting off the head then hacking at the limbs.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              oh gosh, that reminds of that scene from Monty Python…the holy grail one…when the knight threatens to kill the other knight and he hacks off his arm, so he says “I’ll just use my other arm” and the other knight hacks off his other arm and he says “I’ll kick you,…” whoa there goes the leg ….and so forth and so on and it just goes on and on… but that ferocious little hacked up knight ends up screaming….come back here, I’ll bite you to death!!! went off on a tangent there, didn’t I?

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Is it funny?

        I think Kim was pretty humiliated when it was said at the reunion. I don’t see it the same thing as Yolanda’s fridge..where no one was being mocked.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I agree RR-I think it’s mean. I think Brandi took a page out of Lisa’s play book with that comment. You know how Lisa says things like Maloof hoof and tells Adrienne on camera about the stains on her furniture-knowing well it will be something that will be ridiculed forever.

          • Realhousewifeva says:

            But Lisa is so much savvier when she does it, and it’s more funny than cruel, imo

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Lisa is funnier and savvier .she is also much more clever about it. Where it does teeter on “Was that just a witty harmless barb” or was that a “one – two” punch.

              I have to think that Adrienne…who forever now in our minds will know as the human stain thinks that it is cruel. But I have to admit that picture of the stained chair made me laugh…

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              It seems that way at first…but then it makes me wonder if she was being witty or snide. Maybe she’s both?

        • princesspindy says:

          I just went and looked at Twitter and it’s gross. I find it funny when people think of making twitter accts for stuff. My initial reaction is to laugh. I started drugs at 13, that is my maturity level. (My standard excuse from now on!)

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Andy gave a shit stained pillow the Mazel but not Lynn? No wonder I won’t watch his crappy show anymore…

      Not to mention, it was mean enough the first time around…

      • Nancy says:

        Did he really? That was cruel.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          IDK- that’s what was said..that Andy gave it the Mazel.

          • I Need A Life! says:

            I’d swear that’s what I heard as he handed Mazel shirts to his guests.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Oh I believe you when you say that is what you heard. It’s the fact that I suspect you didn’t hear wrong..that makes me shake my head.

          • Nancy says:

            This is getting way out of hand IMHO. Kim needs to get off this show.
            She is so fragile. I’d love her to go to a long term rehab that includes the family.

  72. Nancy says:

    BB,
    Sending good thoughts your way. Night night.

  73. California35 says:

    LA Chica – great news about Drop Dead Diva! I watched that. I didn’t know it was to be canceled, BUT I had been wondering when it comes back.

  74. BB says:

    Baby Update. For anyone still hanging around, hubs just called and said they are getting ready to do a c-section because, in his words, the baby can’t pass through. I was wondering what was taking so long between phone updates. Anyways, prayers are requested that it will go smoothly from here on out.

  75. BB says:

    Baby update. He’s finally here, 6lbs 1oz. Hubby says he’s a tiny thing with long fingers and big feet who unfortunately looks more like his dad than his mom. My other daughter says it’s probably best it’s a boy rather than a girl then if that’s the case. Lololol. Mom is resting comfortably with lots of good drugs. Thanks you guys for being there for me. I didn’t feel so alone with your encouragement. Now, I’m going to try to get some rest and see if I can get my mom on the road to recovery in the am. Good night.

  76. Orson says:

    True Complaint: Folks have been missing each other in the chatroom too much lately. This calls for extreme measures. So, Starz has decided we’re going to meet in the chatroom tonight at 7 pm Pacific, 8 pm Mountain, 9 pm Central, or 10 pm Eastern. So you former chat regulars and any new folks ought to show up tonight or else Starz is going to go all Aviva on you.

    Congrats BB to the new grand baby Jack!
