Trouble in Jersey / Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion / Married to Medicine

Drama – by New Jersey

The following is a screen grab of Melissa Gorga’s sister’s tweets.   Read from the bottom up.    The sisters, their husbands, and their mom were out on Saturday night.  I suppose Melissa confided in them.

Part One of the Three part “Gone With the Wind Fabulous” Atlanta Reunion by RamonaCoaster

Andy Cohen is hosting the “Sweet” Georgia Peaches Reunion. Starting from the right, the lawyer is sitting the farthest from Andy (third trimester stress incontinence), with Cynthia in the middle and Nene right next to Andy wearing a huge ring on her left hand which is probably the 15 carat ring that Gregg gave her.  She has “arrived” on the red eye from Los Angeles.  Starting from the left, Porsha is sitting farthest from Andy, with Kandi in the middle and Miss Twirl herself sitting next to Andy with a fan. In the beginning, Andy does let out that Kim “Come On Wig” Bierman will be joining them later.  Andy notices that the ring that Kandi liked in Vegas is on her left hand. “Do you have a date yet,” Andy asks.  Kandi says she doesn’t want to say because someone might steal it.  She’s joking.  Andy mentions to Kandi the timing of the papers sent to Kim that day using the lawyer to represent her requesting royalties from “Tardy for the Party.”  Kandi does not want to allow Kim to profit off the song she produced any longer.  They haven’t seen Kim since the brunch and Nene states she doesn’t have a problem with seeing her.  “Come on wig.”

Andy then asks if any of the ladies were offended by the lawyer’s fishnet cover up on Anguilla.  The lawyer first says everyone up here is a lady then corrects herself everyone up here is a female and she’s comfortable with nudity and they all have the same parts.  Kenya is looking perturbed because she knows that lady/ female comment was aimed towards her and says she thinks it is offensive to come out in that outfit in front of the other married men.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-reunion-part-one-09Kenya twirled her way into town right next to Andy on the reunion couch.  We have some scenes replayed where Kenya is driving the boat in Anguilla, saying how she’s been mistaken for Beyonce, flirting with Apollo, pushing him into the pool in Anguilla, putting her goods on display in her imaginary fixing up party, twirling with her boobs out in Vegas, Nene mimicking her twirling and Kenya stating she is a part of history along with Obama and Clinton.  Nene really gets a kick out of Kenya.  Andy asks if people really did ask her at the 2009 inauguration for her autograph because they thought she was Beyonce and asked if they were white (apparently white people think black people look the same, and Asians).  Andy does bring up when Beyonce walked off the stage after her performance of the Superbowl she was asked about her performance and she said it was “Gone with the Wind fabulous” in deference to Kenya.  Kenya felt like Beyonce was Team Kenya.  The lawyer mentions she has heard Beyonce watches the show and it’s not a nod toward Team Kenya. Andy asks if Kenya wants to do a threesome with the lawyer and Apollo but Kenya states no, she wants Kandi.  The lawyer thinks it was inappropriate for Kenya and Apollo to be flirting.  When Andy asked about Kenya’s cancer scare, Kenya says she is cancer free and mentioned in her blog that none of the ladies reached out to her after seeing the scene except for Nene and Cynthia.  Nene tells her she shouldn’t expect too much from these ladies.  Porsha says she doesn’t feel that anyone’s character should be questioned because Kenya says it was a life changing experience and Kenya didn’t change her own character.  Really didn’t make sense.  Kenya doesn’t like when people put words in her mouth.  Porsha thinks Kenya is playing the victim to the public and media a little too much.  Kenya whips out the fan saying please, please, please.  The fan is funny but she really needs to know how to open up a fan the proper way.  You don’t use gravity and it’s more of a fluid one handed motion.  It is harder to do with a plastic fan, much better with a wooden fan.

NeNe color coordinated with the pillows

Now it’s Nene’s turn.  They replayed scenes of Nene at the gay pride parade, as Grace Jones, making a speech about how woman don’t support each other, and turning back the ladies because they were three hours late for her party in LA.  Andy mentions Nene has been late to events and Nene says she has been late 15-30 min and she always calls.  Kandi says Nene knew they were going to be late and there were people in the house.  Nene argues what was she supposed to do when they were three hours late.  Andy asks the question trying to get to the root of the ladies problems (or sh-t stir), does Kandi throw shade at Nene?  Kandi feels there is no more shade thrown at Nene that is thrown at her.  Nene thinks if she can diss it out she should be able to take it.  Nene thinks as long as they don’t cut to the white meat they are cool.  Kandi thinks she has gone below the belt when she mentions Nene talking about AJ outside the show.  Kandi thinks Nene say stuff about her that has nothing to do with the show.  Nene just says she says what she thinks.  No resolution there.

Kenya vs Porsha.  They replay scenes with Porsha getting the Miss America/ Miss USA title wrong and the ensuing arguments.  Andy asks why Kenya makes such a big deal over the title.  They argue over the differences.  Kenya thought Porsha was being intentionally disrespectful when she mixed up the title.  Porsha thinks Kenya is jealous when she met her because she was married.  Kenya felt when she met Porsha she thought she was a refined socialite but she sounded more like a cheerleader.  Porsha wants to know why Kenya hated her from the moment she met her and Kenya just sits there fanning herself.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-reunion-part-one-21Now it’s Porsha’s turn.  Andy brings up Porsha’s references towards age. A question from a viewer came up, “We should be inspired by women over 40 keeping it together, not tearing them down. Hope Kordell didn’t marry her to be a trophy wife, if so, she’ll be dumped at 40 like Sheree was.”  Porsha took a shot at her because Kenya took a shot at her for her age.  Kenya thinks she’s a revisionist historian, unintelligent, she is not Benjamin Buttons and not smart since Kenya and Kordell are the same age.  Kenya thinks the most interesting thing about Porsha is Kenya because she wouldn’t exist on the show without Kenya.  Andy asks why Kenya wanted Porsha to show up as BAPS.  Kenya thought it was a compliment because it was a positive character.  Porsha yells it was no compliment to show up as a character with a gold tooth and blonde hair when everyone else is dressed up like a Hollywood star.  Cynthia thinks there was a little shade thrown.  Nene thinks you have to talk to Kenya a little more before she sees reason.

Unfortunately, Kordell filed for divorce from Porsha after they filmed the reunion so it is a bit uncomfortable hearing Porsha defend her husband.  Porsha says her husband is always going to defend her and he defended her that night.  Porsha says Kenya saved her that night because she saved her money by not filing a lawsuit.  Andy asks if she over reacted at all.  Kenya says she made a mistake by inviting her and Porsha fires back telling her she is so bitter and aggressive.  Kenya starts fanning a little faster and it is really annoying Porsha.

Cynthia's choice to highlight the girls was unfortunate.

Cynthia’s choice to highlight the girls was unfortunate.

Cynthia scenes are replaying – little models walking, telling Porsha she is out of the pageant, Peter going to a strip show, coochie crack, ass crack, arguing with Kenya in Anguilla and Nene saying Cynthia knows how to read people.  A viewer asks if Cynthia is showing her New York business woman side.  Cynthia responds saying it is hard to shine during the first season on the show with other strong personalities and Uptown (bar) wasn’t doing too well.  A viewer asks if Cynthia was being two-faced and Cynthia feels your damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Either you have no backbone or you are two-faced.  (I think you should just do things you feel strongly about).  Cynthia feels firing Porsha saved the friendship. Cynthia was happy that Kenya was a judge at her pageant.  Kenya felt Miss USA put her on the map and it was a win for her race.  Porsha mentions Kenya forgot to credit Carole Gist who was the first African American woman to win the Miss USA title.  Kenya didn’t want to respond to that and kept fanning herself.

The lawyer vs Kenya.  It was a really nice relationship in the beginning until the exercise video.  A viewer states the fact that Kenya stole the idea from the lawyer is so low class, it’s like buying a fake Coach bag.  Kenya questions what about Chanel, Hermes?  Kenya mentions when she called the distribution company to gauge their interest, they asked if she was in it and Kenya realized she was a beauty brand.   Kenya says her video cracked Amazon’s top ten list which the lawyer has not been able to do. The lawyer thinks she should get her facts straight. Her video has been an Amazon best seller three times outselling Jillian Michaels.  Kenya says it is all over the internet that she has been outselling and the lawyer thinks she shouldn’t refer to some urban blogger website (excuse me darling? don’t insult any bloggers now).

A viewer asks if the lawyer wears her own hair and the lawyer says she does.  Kenya fake laughs and says she’s a liar.  The lawyer says she has had the same hair style since high school and she does sometimes clip fake stuff on.

Andy asks the lawyer how she feels when Kenya states her body isn’t in the best shape to do an exercise video.  The lawyer says Kenya was ok when she wanted to produce the video.  She points out that despite Kenya’s distribution deal was so wonderful their videos are in the same place – Amazon.  Kenya does mention Bethenny Frankel has the same distribution company.  They both throw shade on each other stating they both did a “Susan Saunders” giving each other a one star and writing their own five star reviews.  Andy mentions Entertainment Weekly reviewed their videos and said Kenya’s was good for fitness and the lawyer’s was more for entertainment.  Kenya mentions how the lawyer is too overweight to do the video and the lawyer responds are you a Dr. now.  Kenya says what’s real about her is her heart, the lawyer says her butt is made in Mexico, Kenya calls her fake Southern belle, the lawyer fires back with her fake relationship with Walter, and Kenya says she will be Barbie all day long.  The lawyer was asked why she would want Kenya to work for free when she wanted Sheree to pay her for legal services.  The lawyer wanted Kenya for a producer for hire and would pay her to produce the video.  They rehash the whole details of the deal they couldn’t agree with.  Kenya mentions she has made multi million dollar films and the lawyer asks what multimillion dollar films has she done. Kenya tells her to look it up in IMDB. The lawyer mentions her next big acting role is this show.  Kenya says the only person who is acting is the lawyer acting like a Southern belle and she is nothing like a southern belle.  Kenya says the lawyer wasn’t relevant until she came on the show.

Andy shows Kenya’s Gone with the Wind fabulous video showing the lawyer’s character who has boobs and skin that gravity has not been good to wearing the fishnet cover up and black bikini going into church while Kenya does a twirl blowing the lawyer’s character out of church.  The lawyer doesn’t delight in it and compares Kenya to Single White Female.  Kenya calls her “lying attorney phoney Fakedra”.  Andy wants to talk about Nene’s shoe party when Kenya went to the party dressed as the lawyer with fake booties on.  The lawyer wishes she had a fan to flick.  Kenya brings up after her and the lawyer had a disagreement, the lawyer started a smear campaign against her.  Kandi mentions that came after Kenya stole her idea.  Kenya felt she went overboard and made a mockery of mental illness and tried to destroy her.  They start talking physical violence and it’s finally over. No resolution there.

Here’s the video if you haven’t seen it.

Married to Medicine by NoMoreDrama

married-to-medicine-season-1-gallery-episode-103-01Last night’s episode of Married to Medicine was a juxtaposition of two very different storylines.  On one hand was the usual mind numbing drama between greedy rich women that Bravo loves to serve up.  These are the four doctor’s wives.  Materialistic and relentless in their quest for their 15 minutes of fame.  Two are Atlanta imports from Detroit, with Kenya Moore sized insecurities and need for attention.  Kari is the token white woman.  Her most notable features are her Taylor Armstrong lips.  As far as her personality goes – when she mentioned that Mariah came from nothing I decided she wasn’t worth my time.  Mariah is the final doctor’s wife and the queen bee.  So far I actually like her – but it’s early yet.  I suppose it doesn’t matter how these women act as long as their husbands are competent physicians.  After all, Adrienne Maloof’s ex-husband is a doctor, and he’s still in business.

Dr. Jackie

Dr. Jackie

The two doctors are a different story.  As two minority doctors, they represent.  Howard University students sent a letter to Bravo asking that the show never see the light of day – worried about the damage it would do to minority female doctors.  I don’t blame them.  All I can say is based on this episode, they don’t have much to worry about.

Dr, Simone

Dr, Simone

Doctor Simone is lighthearted and harmless.  Most of her airtime was with her sister who gave her some hand-me-down dresses.  While the sister took a few digs at Simone’s weight, Simone turned the tables and rocked the dresses.  And then she pulled out a scale and in the bravest moment I’ve seen on Bravo, stepped on it.

Doctor Jackie stole the show.  A two time breast cancer survivor, her storyline was compelling enough to get a decent amount of screen time as she prepared for, and then participated in, a two day – thirty mile walk.

Mariah realizes how foolish it was to dress in a pink wig to a serious event.

Mariah realizes how foolish it was to dress in a pink wig to a serious event.

Mariah and Quad didn’t seem to understand the seriousness of the event, and showed up looking like two damn fools in pink wigs and tutus – but at least they showed up and walked a little (or maybe walked a lot).  Dr. Simone showed up to give moral support from a lawn chair.  I have no idea where the other two self-centered twits were – but I’ve pretty much written them off.  Toya’s only storyline seems to be her determination to spend enough to put her husband in debt.

Next week promises to be a return to the quality TV we’ve grown to expect from Bravo.  This time they are taking the script from Real Housewives of Miami, and there will be a scene where a fight breaks out poolside.  Will someone get pushed in the pool and ruin the speaker system??  I can barely wait to find out.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Back to the grind. 😦 But we shall get thru it.

    ATL reunion was kinda boring. Kenya & her fan. IDK.

    Mad Men was also boring. I fell asleep. First night epi though.

    BB I hope your mom is better and that you both got some sleep. Your daughter & “Just Jack” must be beaming.

    HilDogAtl I hope you are coping. Bless you and your family.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi Powell!! Top o’the mornin’ to ya. It’s Monday!! Glad to be at work. Woke up with a UTI…oh joy…doctor’s appointment at 4:30PM.

      I loved the Kenya fan; but I think I’m in the minority. Nene loved it…at least for ep 1 of the Reunion. I loved loved watching Nene laugh about it. We’ll see if the fan gets old.

      Kandi once again…”If you get crazy wit me. I’m gone git crazy witchoo.” really? That’s the way you explained the lawsuit on Kim? Oh well, that’s Kandi. But she doesn’t always do that, does she? I don’t want to be mean if she can’t help it. But…c’mon Kandi, you’re on T.V. Some might say you are a role model. You have a daughter,…I think you can help it, Ms. Kandi. She resorted to that in the limo after Ms. Nene sent them “to the left” in L.A.

      • Powell says:

        Lainey I did like NeNe laughing at,Kenya w/that fan. I wonder if the fan has a Twitter acct like Yolanda’s fridge. 🙂

        • LaineyLainey says:

          it needs a twitter account. The poopy pillow, has one, too!

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            If they followed each other..it would take the expression of “when the shit hits the fan” to a whole other level.

    • $25,000 says:

      The fan was the most interesting thing about the reunion and it was still on the boring side. Andy announced that last night was the first installment of the three part ATL reunion. I’m thinking a two or one part reunion is preferable given how dull last night’s show was.

  2. When the chat blog posts (4:30 blog time) can someone please post the link in this blog. I’m at work and BB might not be around to help. Thx, NMD

          Thanks for posting the link, obviously Lisa is stretched to thin. I hope she will be well and not overdo just for DWTS.
          People.com has it rigged so anytime you copy their link it breaks. However you can cut and paste the test of that link and it works.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          LOL- It’s not you…for some reason whenever a link from people is posted…its dead.

    • Here you go. Excerpt from Lisa’s blog in People:
      >>
      The rest of my week, however, was rather trying because I had to take off to New York for work Tuesday right after the elimination show. That night I took a red eye flight at 11 p.m., arriving in New York at 6 a.m. and heading straight to six hours of rehearsals upon landing.
      After rehearsals, I ran back to my hotel for a quick change and headed to the Bravo Upfronts party, which wasn’t over until around 11 p.m. Then I had a light dinner and drink, and went to bed.
      After a few hours of sleep, I was up bright and early at 6 a.m. to prepare to dance with my partner Gleb on Live with Kelly and Michael. We were performing an encore of the Viennese waltz, which I ended up doing barefoot! Then off we went to six hours of rehearsals again before catching a flight back to L.A. that evening.
      By the time Thursday rehearsals rolled around – let’s just say I was exhausted and everything felt off. Gleb and I were rehearsing our cha cha and suddenly I just blacked out.
      I was in shock when I woke up. I fainted only once before in my life. The doctor found that I had a viral infection with fever and swollen glands. And between trying to fight that and all of the stress on my body from running around, I ended up with low blood pressure and a rapid heart rate, which is why I fainted.
      I am still fighting the bug and feeling under the weather but I am staying in the game as long as they say I can. And I will give it my best!<<
      <<

  4. TexasTart says:

    Good morning, I wish everyone a good start to their week. 😀

    I hope AZGirl has recovered from twirling. 😉 I have to echo what NMD said last night about Kenya Moore being Bravo gold. Kenya proved again last night she is one of a kind. Equal parts obnoxious and hilarious! I tried to will Kandi to grab the fan in a rage and rip it in half, or worse, ha ha, oh well there is still part 2!

    Kenya’s fan must have made the editors insane. She would whip out that fan and camera would cut to Andy a few seconds and camera cuts back to Kenya and the fan was laying in her lap. The fan gave away more of how much they chop up what we see.

    That’s nice that NMD posted a pic of the ladies at the reunion standing up! I get frustrated with the reunions start out with everyone seated and sometimes that is the only way you get to see the ladies. They put a lot into what they wear and deserve to be shown standing up on air! I liked this long gown theme for this reunion.

    Surprisingly, it was not Cynthia for me as best dressed, it was Porsha, with a second, or a personal best for Kandi. However, the lighting was entirely too much….maybe okay for someone to perform surgery but I really to not need to see every available flaw in a persons skin, yuk.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      For these reunions, the ladies need to choose dresses by how they look when sitting, IMO. I hate when some of these ladies pick a dress that looks great when standing, but awful when sitting. It’s not a red carpet event, Put the dress on, then sit on a chair in front of a mirror, lol

      Remember Atlanta reunion season 1 where they were wearing pants and leggings, now they are in ball gowns.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Re: the lighting and the every flaw in a person’s skin…that’s how I feel every morning when I look into my 10x magnification mirror. yuk. The miracle of make-up.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        That’s how I feel when I look in the mirror in my car, seriously, I know when I need to get my eyebrows done that way!

      • Contessa says:

        HI Lainey, I have one of those 10X mirrors, and sometimes I really scare myself. But at my age that is the only way I can put on makeup and make sure I don’t look like a clown.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          yes, a necessary evil,…the 10x mirror. My eyebrows would be scary without that mirror to help me see that I must tame the wild caterpillars.

    • I noticed the bad lighting at the BH reunion too. I wonder if they do this on purpose. LOL! But it really makes everyone look haggard. And Andy is not looking so great these days either. He looks tired and his hair looks strange. Perhaps these HW’s are really wearing him out! 😛

  5. Cathy Connor says:

    Good Morning Lynns friends !! Am seriously thinking about Hildogatl this morning ! Sending prayers and warm wishes to you and your family. ((HUGS)) at this most difficult time. remembering the good memories and that your Mom is resting in peace will hopefully help to ease your pain.

    BB I hope your Mom makes a speedy recovery and that you enjoy your new grandbaby lots !

    Have a great week all, great job bloggers always ,Lynn would be so proud and pleased !!

    Sincerly , Cathy

    • Good Morning Cathy! Hope all is well with you and that you have a great week. Love to see you stop by! Hugs to you and family!

      • Cathy Connor says:

        Thank you Mar its nice to check in with you guys and see once again what a tight knit group of friends you all are . What a lovely form of support for each other in good times and bad ! Just what my sis had in mind a great place to stop in share with friends our trials and triumphs It always makes my heart sing to know how this blog keeps going in her honor Thanks to you ,everyone

    • I am so, so sorry about your Mom, Hildogatl!

  6. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    What is all that twitter mess from the Marco sisters? How is Bravo coming for Melissa?

    • melthehound says:

      Riddle me this… Why does that c-trap Lysa Simpson think anyone gives a shit what she has to say, about anything, to anybody?

    • realhousewifeva says:

      They are so stupid trying to threaten Bravo before the editing of the show takes place. haha

    • plainviewsue says:

      Lysa has since removed that tweet about daring Bravo. Don’t people realize once you tweet it’s out there. People save it. It has been retweeted to Andy countless times.

      What I am hoping is that if Lysa is implying that Bravo is looking to expose Melissa’s lies, then I for one say GO BRAVO!!!

      I saw an interview on line with the HW’s at the Bravo upfronts. Of course Caroline was front & center hogging the interview. At one point, the interview said I heard the show is going to go back to the season one funness (which I would love after Melissa gets taken down) & Melissa said ask Caroline since she’s from season one. Uh, so was your SIL!!!

      Jacq was standing next to Teresa & they seemed to be laughing together. So who knows what will be.

      Andy tweeted yesterday that this season of RHONJ is incredible. Yes, I guess the arrests of three of the castmates could be incredible in his eyes. I’ll bet it’s not even addressed.

    • Exit4 says:

      It’s either behind the scenes stuff we aren’t privy to yet or she’s angry that they are giving penny and Johnny a forum to bash her. Regardless, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to feel sorry for Melissa. She wanted this, she pushed for this and her husband agreed. Agreed and went right along with the plan to bring down his sister. Simply to make her pay for not always treating his wife the way she should be treated (which I guess is a subjective thing) and to help her jump start her career as a pop star. M

      That said, I don’t like the things that penny and Johnny are doing. Why they feel the need to go so hard at Melissa, when they have no real ties to her, is beyond me. Getting on the show is obviously a goal for them, but it’s just strange at this point. That’s why I am starting to wonder if Teresa isn’t somewhat complicit. Not that she sought out the Greeks (I think Kim may have had a hand in that) but that she’s just not doing anything to stop them. Assuming she even could. Whether that’s going directly to the Greeks or making Kim d call off the dogs. Again, assuming she could. If she wanted to.

      • Rebecca says:

        They do have real ties to her, including the strip joint she worked at that is owned by Penny’s brother (not Melissa’s cousin). I think little lies upset them and then they snapped. Whatever.

        These storylines are old and uninteresting. It’s time to put I wonder how different this show would be if it were produced on a classier network.

      • nyc mama says:

        IMO they are all at fault. Every one of them.

        They each have their own agendas and don’t care who they hurt to get what they want including their own families. It’s disgusting.

        The bad blood between Teresa and her brother (and SIL) should have been handled off camera. Melissa shouldn’t have been underhanded about getting on the show and her sisters should shut their mouths and go away. They make bad situations worse but they too are so desperate for attention.

        John and Penny are desperate to get on this show and will do anything as will Kim D and have been complicit in some many things. That said, Teresa could have and should have shut this down long ago instead of playing into it but I don’t think any of the them are bright enough to realize how bad they all look in this or they just don’t don’t care because they are ALL motivated by their own egos and desperation for attention and “fame” no matter what the cost. None of them seem to be able to get out of their own way and do the right thing. None of this is worth their 15 minutes of fame but again they are too stupid to see it.

        • Exit4 says:

          I can’t decide which it is anymore, did Teresa seek out these people (with help from others) as revenge? Did it all start out innocently-like, “Teresa, I know someone who knows someone who knows Melissa and she did XYZ 10 years ago” and Teresa couldn’t help herself and wanted to know EVERYTHING and it snowballed? It’s all so Ferris Bueller!

          I really believe, that when Mel and joe joined the show, Teresa was determined to fake it on her end. That first day if filming, the christening, she tried to do that when she went over to their table to say congratulations and give kisses. Joe and Melissa had a split second to decide where to go and well, we know how THAT turned out.

          When the news came out that Melissa was joining the show and she started a public Facebook and twitter, she was getting message after message of hate for her sister in law. People were not just encouraging her to go after her, they were showering her with love and fandom before anyone had even heard her voice. I think Melissa allowed herself to be influenced by the negativity. I think she believed that’s what people wanted to see (and some did). Especially after Teresa’s god awful season 2. What she didn’t anticipate was that people would see this and flip the script on her. She didn’t anticipate that some of Teresa’s worst outbursts would ultimately be understood. Meaning the things Danielle said at the fashion show and the reunion could all be traced back to the fact that Melissa was feeding her info. Thats not cool! I remember so many people wanted her fired for pushing Andy. The reason he didn’t us because I think he LOVED her reaction. He knew what was up and he knew he had gold. Too bad they have chosen to drag this out for 3 seasons!

          As far as all the negative rumors about Melissa, if Teresa was going to stop it (assuming she knew what was brewing) it would have had to have been before it went public. She can’t control people’s twitters, magazines or the editing. It’s all so sad really.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Exit-I totally agree that Teresa was willing to fake it and act like everything was good between her SIL and bro-until he called her garbage. Teresa is quite dim but you could totally see the look on her face when all that crap went down at the Christening. She never saw it coming and that is just sad. Coming from your own brother that’s gotta suck. Anything that happened after was a direct result of that moment and I don’t feel sorry for any of them. They wanted their shot at fame and they didnt care about the cost. All the wannabes coming out of the woodwork are just looking for their 15 minutes- and they will take it any way they can get it…just like Melissa and Joe did.

            • Exit4 says:

              Jill, I’m definitely more a a team Teresa, but I won’t put a halo on her head (like say…..a team brandier!) LOL! There are plenty of things, I’m sure, that she did or said as well. I’m positive she passive aggressively rubbed her fame in Melissas face to torture her! (Which bit her in the ass)!

              What’s so funny about all of it is that Melissa and joe wanted to knock her down a peg-and it doesn’t seem to be working. No one even cared about strippergate! All the hangers on spreading rumors, which Teresa is getting the blame for, they end up getting hit with shoes and have counter charges pressed against them.

              It’s as if the people they WANT to ultimately hurt are not getting hurt-they’re all hurting themselves! It’s so weird….people are trying so hard to bring others down and it keeps blowing up in their faces. And Teresa keeps her mouth relatively shut in public and sells a tin if books.

              If Kathy wants to sell more cannolis, maybe she should have everyone turn on her! LOL

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I always got a kick out of Teresa b/c she was ditzy and said dumb sh*t but then the bankrupt thing just pissed me off. I started to turn on her and then Melissa and Joe came along and I kind of sided with Teresa. I think there are plenty of things wrong with her but M&J tried to play her dirty and she didnt back down. I would never be friends with someone like her b/c she would exhaust me but I do find her to be amusing because she is ditzy.

                • Exit4 says:

                  I always looked at joe and Teresa’s crimes as crimes of stupidity! I also never got too angry about them because its not as if they got away with anything.They didnt. They’ve been called to task on all of it, where it matters, in the legal system. I’m not huge on “blog justice”. Otherwise our jails would be very crowded with people doing life for hurting someone’s feelings or just being generally crazy. LOL!

                  Hopefully, the guidice a have learned their lesson and will never allow themselves to be that stupid again. Plus, given the fact that the lauritas are apparently JUST as bad and the Gorgas are probably a hair away from the same situation, it’s hard to judge them so harshly anymore.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    Funny that they are all getting in the same boat now…you think they would have learned from Teresa and Joe’s mistakes. They all talked about Teresa’s money problem and look at them now… Glass houses and all that!!

                • realhousewifeva says:

                  That’s exactly how I feel. I became Team Teresa by default…but I would never want to be her friend. lol

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                Speaking of Kathy and her cannoli’s…and people turning on her…

                I think it was the famewhoregora’s site that had an eye witness that was at Kathy’s event..(the one that Teresa, Melissa and Jac went to).. Anyway, this person overheard the producers set up of how the other women were not at the event (yet) and how Kathy was suppose to act all emotional and betrayed by it; And Richie ‘directed’ to call the other HW and put them on blast. The eye witness also reportedly heard them say that if there wasn’t any ‘drama’ that it would be pointless to put it on the show.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  RR-I take everything written at that site with a grain of salt. They have an agenda and it ain’t necessarily to tell the truth-ya know what I mean?? That being said-this sounds like it could happen but who knows???

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    Oh yeah, I totally get what you are saying. They definitely aren’t impartial. and have it out for Melissa and Joey.

                    But I am incline to believe this because the fashion show last year kind of played out the way the way they reported it ; although it was definitely slanted in Teresa’s favor, the conclusion that the producers VERY much directed the drama is true. Not to mention, there a bunch of independent tweets from people that were there. that pretty much said the same thing.

                    IMO, it’s just like how all the cast are playing nice didn’t come naturally. Twitter rages and digs in interviews…but then come filming time…it’s all water on the bridge? BS. It’s because they took note on how the viewers were sickened with the pile on.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      The producers seem to be more involved with NJ than any other cast-I wonder why? I know there is producer manipulation in each franchise but its so heavy handed in NJ

                • Donna says:

                  Thanks for that tip!

          • plainviewsue says:

            Exit. That is a fabulous summation. Kudos!

  7. Good Morning and Happy Monday! So, it is official….I can’t party like it’s 1999 anymore! LOL! Feeling very sluggish this morning after all the rich foods, desserts and cocktails over the weekend. I forget sometimes, in my tiny little mind, that I am not 35 anymore…no, 25…no, 21….aw heck….I am an old lady today! Not everyday, but today, yep. 😉

    Thanks NMD, RamonaCoaster and BB for a great blog. I didn’t watch the Atl reunion, but it sounds charming! LOL! Love the pics…Kandi looked really lovely! Kenya and the fan….oh my, I say while clutching my pearls!

    Sending Love, Light and Healing Energy to all those in need of it today. I hope you are all doing a bit better this morning.

    Got to get myself going here, so I will start by wishing everyone a Beautiful Monday!

    New post, “In The Face of Obstacles”, + all the goodies, is up at my place. Enjoy!

    A little tid bit I heard last years reunion that a certain “small” had a fainting spell from being in her SPANK too long with that band aid type dress Shes fake as hell and practices the law Alegedly You guys may already know about it IDK

    Now we all know I cant stand her,and why! Shes phony as a three dollar bill and thinks shes better than everyone else Just sayin….

    • LaineyLainey says:

      “Everybody knows….” it’s the alleged barrister. But seriously,…I had NOT heard about that!!! I always heard it wasn’t safe for the unbor; for the expectant mother to wear clothing that’s binding. Hopefully she does not do that everyday. smdh

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Yes, Andy talked about it on WWHL and she admitted to it. It was not last reunion, the first season she was on . They had to halt filming so she could be taken out of her spanx. haha.

      • Cathy Connor says:

        You are so right it was first season I liked her back then LOL Time flies doesnt it !! was glad to not see her poured into a dress with her boobs coming out of her collar bones Sorry bout the snark she just drives me crazy Rant over….

  9. realhousewifeva says:

    Good Morning, I’ve missed so much the past couple days!

    My heart goes out to Hildog, so very sad 😦 I hope you are doing okay.

    Atlanta is always entertaining. Some of the other franchises get too deep where it becomes almost emotionally investing (suicide, anyone? 😦 ) But Atlanta ladies always have entertaining drama.. I mean, fighting about a booty workout video?
    Kenya is reality TV gold, and I guess good for her. She’s so gimmicky, though. That will get old fast. I’m not even a big Phaedra fan, but she definitely won…never fight with a lawyer, they are used to dealing with the crazy. haha

    Also, regarding Phaedra saying about the blogger writing about Kenya vs. Phaedra’s ranks..I actually agree with her. One blog wrote it and then others followed suit…but they never took into account that Phaedra’s video came out months in advance while Kenya’s had just come out that week. Of course a new video is going to rank higher at that moment than one that has been out for months.

    Next week I saw the clip online, looks like Nene actually DOES get the best of Phaedra when she calls her out. That’s why I never could totally like Phaedra, she definitely is phony…meeting with Nene’s half sisters behind her back to get scoop on her? That’s some low down dirty…now it explains the disdain Nene’s had for Phaedra all this time.

    I read the comments yesterday about Kit calling Yolanda (possibly) racist. Personally, I did not get that AT ALL from Yolanda’s comments…however I also think everyone is entitled to their opinion about the housewives.
    Yolanda was married to a Palestinian man, and I know that doesn’t mean she can’t be racist but if she’s going to be racist against Spanish people, why not Arabs? lol If someone was truly racist, would they employ minorities to work in their homes? I don’t know, that doesn’t make sense to me…but I don’t usually hang around racist people so I’m not sure how their minds work.
    I will say this, as a first generation child of parents who were FRESH OFF THE BOAT, sometimes foreigners say things in a way that make Americans cringe. My mom speaks perfect English, but still, she is VERY direct in her approach to people. She will tell people if they should change the decor of their house, or if they should never wear a certain dress again. lol. Sometimes it’s awkwardly funny and sometimes I have to yell at her She never understands what she did wrong “I tell people because I care! If I didn’t want people to be better, I wouldn’t tell them” But in the end of the day, she truly doesn’t mean it in a bad way. So yes, culture can be an ‘excuse’ for why some people say or do things differently than Americans do.

    I guess that’s why I didn’t even blink twice when that scene occurred. I actually am totally shocked that it got to much discussion.

    If anyone knows the comedian Russell Peters, he is HILARIOUS when it comes to these topics of differing cultures. I can totally relate to him (even if i’m not indian). If you’ve never heard of him. please youtube “Russell peters beating your children” (it sounds worse than it is, lol)

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Here’s the video, it’s so funny (I hope it doesn’t offend anyone…I’m not condoning beating your kids!)

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        LOL . I needed some laughter this morning. I’ve seen him on Comedy Central and he does make me laugh. I also get a kick out of him being Canadian.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          He’s so funny, I watch his vids over and over and they always make me laugh 🙂 He was in town a couple months ago and we missed it, I was so bummed!

      • princesspindy says:

        That was so funny! I can remember when my kids came home after there was an assembly at school and they told me about CPS. They were all excited and said, “Kids can call if their parents are mean to them.” And I said, “If you want to call CPS, go ahead, they aren’t going to take me away, they are going to take you away and put you in a Foster Home with strangers…be my guest. It will give me some free time.”

    • LaineyLainey says:

      At work, so I can’t watch the video. But I WILL!!! I love the story of your mom. My mom will say…”Oh you look so nice! You got a new haircut!” Then later on in the day,…as I’ve noticed her looking at my hair when we talk (oh and she’s a retired hairdresser) …she’ll say stuff like “When we get back home, I’ll fix your hair for you, because that haircut is supposed to look cute. Did you know that?” I just smile and say “Ok…” and then when I take her home she forgets that she’s going to teach me how to look cute (as opposed to how uncute I look to her…) LOL!!! It used to bug me,…now I can laugh it off. I imagine I’ll be the same way with my kids.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Haha, moms..gotta love them. I always find myself saying things to my kids that sound JUST LIKE my mom.

        • iceNfire says:

          My Husband had a cousin visiting from Thailand that spoke limited English. We were at a restaurant and she said to the waitress “give me water” ….I wanted to crawl under the table But we were in China Town and no offense was taken. Non English speaking people in this Country understand when others are struggling with English… Later I realized that she was trying for my sake b/c she could have easily spoken in Chinese…i think this topic is 3 days old 😛

      At around 4 minutes… Sadly, a lot of truth to what he is saying… Funny though. Thanks for posting 🙂

  10. HuskerHuny says:

    Just wanted to post something quickly in case some of you need to shake off the Monday blues.

    On Saturday, the Nebraska Cornhuskers held their annual spring Red/White ‘game’ (it’s really just a glorified practice). But it is a rite of spring for rabid Husker fans, like myself, to get out and enjoy a warm spring Saturday afternoon. There were over 60,000 fans in attendance.

    But the highlight of the game was 7-year-old Jack Hoffman from Atkinson, NE who is currently battling brain cancer. Last year the football team took Jack under their wing and came up with Team Jack to help support him and his family and other kids like him.

    As the minutes ticked away, the coaches decided to put Jack in the game. They had drawn up a play just for him and the entire team was in on it. The snap went to the quarterback who then handed it off to Jack, where he proceeded to run down the field 69 yards to score the game-winning touchdown as both sidelines cleared and escorted him into the end zone. And he also was the game’s leading rusher and they put his name in the official stats.

    Please go to You Tube and search Team Jack. You will find a replay of his run and if you can keep a dry eye, well, you’re stronger than me. Sorry I can’t post a link in that I’m seriously challenged in that area. You may have already seen it in that it’s been on ESPN (#1 play of the day on Saturday), network and cable news, Good Morning America and on and on.

    Such a reminder that football is still a game – Jack is playing for his life. Hope you enjoy it!

  11. Good Morning Everyone!

    Thank you for the Blogs NoMoreDrama and RamonaCoaster!

    I had a blast last night watching The AT Reunion with you guys! Made my day!

    Phaedra one liners were hysterical! Nene’s Laugh was contagious!

    Hugs to all of you dear friends! Have a wonderful beginning of the week and keep the good laughs for the rest of it!

  12. BB says:

    Good afternoon all. Update on my mom. They moved her to ICU this morning so they can keep a closer eye on her and figure out what the heck is going on and why her lungs aren’t improving and why she’s working so hard to breathe. When I left she was resting comfortably for the first time in a few days. Thanks everyone for your concern.

  14. Cruickal says:

    Last nights reunion was great! I was so happy that it was entertaining, IMO the season was very boring so this was much appreciated. I really wish Kenya would have responded to Porsha’s question about why she totes she was the first when she wasn’t. It was fantastic when they cut to her face before she tried to act like she was above it with her fan she looked worried and like she swallowed a golfball but then quickly switched gears. She really isn’t a very good actress.

    I watched that video on Facebook, HuskerHunny, and I cried. And then I cried again just reading you talking about the video. It was super sweet!

    This is the video I started my morning with and I don’t think it’s possible to have a bad day now 🙂 happy Monday!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Kenya tried so hard to discredit Porsha with her silence but it didnt work and I was kind of glad that Porsha brought the Miss USA thing up.

      • Cruickal says:

        I was too!! I actually didn’t know until Porsha said it, I’m sure there are many out there watching in the same boat as me and it just makes Kenya seem more crazy to me!

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I didn’t know either-Kenya played like she was the first. I guess she fooled me!!!

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I think Portia totally PWNED Kenya during the entire reunion.

            • realhousewifeva says:

              Wendy Williams gave Porsha the MVP of the reunion, lol.

              However, next week it looks like Porsha goes hard in defending her marriage..that’s gotta be tough for her.

    • TexasTart says:

      “…..like she swallowed a golfball….” 😆

  15. iceNfire says:

    Hello – I haven’t read yet but just want to say if Kenya is invited back as a HW they might as well just give RHOA written scripts.

    About RHONJ – idk who the greek or the dog is maybe they are the same perosn idk who penny is either and don’t really care

    About Mob Wives – That looked like a setup to me and the only person that gainedanything was Renee. I hate to think she set up that violent attack on Carla I don’t even like her but that was uncalled for…wonder how much VH1 paid for that attack dog (bitch)

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I didn’t see the MW episode by Renee and Carla have tweeted that they are on good terms

    • TexasTart says:

      Hey Ice, how are you doing with Kid Rock having flown the coop?

      • iceNfire says:

        Hi TT – It hasn’t hit me yet, he has only been gone 2 days and he has been on Rock Climbing trips for 2 weeks at a time 🙂 Thanks for asking

        • TexasTart says:

          Yeah, that is early on, somehow thought that was last weekend. Hope he adjusts well to his new environment and job….you can go visit him, right. You were confused when we left off in conversation yesterday afternoon and I was confused about what you were confused about, lol, just saying if anything needed resolved you can let me know and I’ll check that thread again.

          • iceNfire says:

            LoL – I was confused b/c you said you agreed with iforetwho and I went to see what iforgetwho wrote but it was a long threadd and iforgetwho had left a couple comments….iforget what the thread was about so it could be of any importance 🙂

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Mob Wife’s was brutal. I think it was pretty much a producer set up….when purposely bring someone like Love into the fold and know the extent of the violence she is capable of, I think they also bare a lot of the blame.

      Love should be in jail.

      • iceNfire says:

        Is Renne’s sister a producer of the show? I think she is and that’s why I think it was a set up benefiting Renee. She certainly came out smelling like a rose

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          She did…but I do think that Renee’s reaction seemed sincere. I almost believe Karen too that she felt guilty that it happened and regretted the part she played.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I agree.. before Love was ever cast on the show her violent past was well known. Even she is tweeting that it was meant to go down like that and that they’ve been teasing it all season long. I’m assuming she is insinuating that production wanted the fight to happen.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I think she is too much of a liability.They made sure that in this fiasco to have what looked to be 20 security people because they would break it up quickly but what about the next time?

          Only rage-a-holics go around punching walls.

      • Cathy Connor says:

        Speaking of being in jail ..Are you watching Married to Medicine ?? The promo for next week shows them fighting in evening dresses at a mansion. The women on this show go on and on about representing there husbands and how they should act. Guess they dont like to practice what they preach. Where does Bravo get these ideas for shows and the casts Im just shaking my head……

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Hi Kathy, No, I haven’t been watching it..but from what I hear it is really awful.

          If you are watching it, I know that they are looking from someone to blog it. BB has been doing it on a weekly basis. I know that the group would look forward to hearing more from you.. 🙂

          • Cathy Connor says:

            I dont have the gift my sister had or these wonderful bloggers have my writing is not up to par..I wasnt even going to watch but got bored one night and started to watch. Im not sure how many more episodes it has to go but it really is kinda awful.
            I read here daily but dont always get time to comment my boss is at meetings today thats why Im able to even type today. But Thanks for thinking of me for such an important role..((Hugs))

    HilDog – I am so very sorry for your loss – you and all your care shall remain in my prayers – knowing you from this blog, I am certain that your Mom was very proud of you – please know that she will never be in pain or know fear ever again – may the strength of her love bring you peace, and may your memories of her give you courage and grace – *hugs HilDog really hard*

    BB – ICU is where your Mom will get more attention and the fact that she is resting more comfortably is a good sign – my prayers are with you and with her – glad that Jack is doing well –
    *hugs BB really hard*

    ad for the reunion – best line of the night goes to Kandi – “can you flick that fan with your left hand?” – more than once I thought for sure she was going to catch Kandi with it too –

    as for NJ – they exhaust me – and make me even more grateful for the family that I have –

    hope all of you are getting through the Monday madness with a smile –

  18. Exit4 says:

    Jill it was getting skinny so I came down here. If I have ever seen a situation on TV (or not) where “glass houses” applies its NJ HWs! I think of jac at the last reunion screaming and yelling at Teresa about her financial issues. Hoping her husband goes to jail. And a year later, she’s in the same boat. Possibly even worse! With assault charges to boot. What will “we pay our bills” Melissa do when her bottom drops out? Blame Teresa? That whole group is a hot mess.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      That’s the thing with all the Jersey cast-they are so judgy and always looking to one up each other. They love to see someone fail hate to see success! So much jealousy! They all try to act like they are so happy and perfect but happy people don’t sit at home waiting for their friends and family to fall on their faces!!
      Jac with that jail remark…talking about getting bit in the ass!!!!

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      ITA, Talk about projection. I have to think she must have been in such a desperate place to take a run at Teresa over issues that she knew were going on in her own house. She had to have know it would get tossed back in her face this season.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        For some reason this group in NJ think they can get away with all sorts of things. I dont think Jac believed for a second that she would ever be in Teresa’s shoes!!!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          IDk, I think it she would have had too but she was so angry she just didn’t care in that moment. It was the only way she would be able to hurt Teresa so she took it.

      • Exit4 says:

        There’s no way she couldn’t have known it would all go public. Jacqueline was my favorite for the first 3 seasons. Up until the end of S3 when she turned and turned vicious really quick. Caroline too. it’s one thing to be angry at someone, its one thing to separate yourself from someone who gets on your nerves, but this was beyond anger. It was vicious and bitter and nasty.. And their kids get involved.

        Even worse, I can’t figure out what Teresa did to deserve all that hate? Punta Cana, I guess, but it just seemed like the punishment didn’t fit the crime. I suspect Caroline and Jacqueline have treated other people that way in the past. Look at Ashlee. Apple meet tree.

        • Jill...no not That Jill says:

          Caroline was so angry at Teresa and never really said why-she acted like we were supposed to know..”read between the lines” and all that crap. WTF?? Just tell us!! I found her to be so bitter and angry-the exact opposite of how she came across in previous seasons. Jac always seemed immature and silly to me so I wasn’t surprised by anything she did!!!

          • Exit4 says:

            Ugh I know! Just SAY the words Caroline! Maybe we’ll understand! I get if it was punta Cana and there were legalities, but ,most people were already aware of it….just say there was a incident, I cant legally talk about it but it showed me a side of Teresa and joe I don’t want to be associated with and that’s it. The viewers will say, ok and then read between the lines. Instead of manufacturing stuff about magazines and stuff. None of which made any sense. The problem with Caroline is she think as she’s smarter then everyone else and that the fans are too dumb to comprehend anything. But she’s wrong about that and her book sales may prove it…..

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I’m going to buy her dumb book when the price drops. I will for real read anything so why not? If I could buy Brandi’s book-why not Caroline’s? I just broke down and bought Andy’s book today b/c it was on sale at B&N. so far-it stinks, but I wasn’t expecting much!!!
              I’m very curious to see how the interact with each other this season-they have to know that the family feud crap is getting tiresome!!!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          IMO, I think their motive is one of the all time classics. MONEY.
          Jac pretty much said it herself when she went off at on Teresa at Mel’s performance. That Teresa has been the only one in that franchise to do well on their other ventures. Who would have thought that flipping a table over at a family dinner and screaming “PROSTITUTION WHORE” would win someone accolades but it did.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I think Jac was aware of her money problems-I just think that in her mind it was not going to come out. They think they can get away with things and no one will find out…I believe they are quite delusional !!!!

          • Rebecca says:

            Like the autism storyline. People are coming out through the woodwork skeptical of her son’s symptoms.

  19. Exit4 says:

    Jill I just saw your comment about the producers. I don’t know if they are more involved in nj or it just seems that way. I don’t think the jersey ladies are as adept as say, the BH ladies, at “acting” so the set-ups just seem more obvious. You can almost tell, especially with Teresa. When the jersey girls are set loose on their own, that’s when the magic happens. It’s black magic, but its clearly ratings gold.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I think it has something to do with the fact that they are friendly with the producers…according to twitter!!!

      • Exit4 says:

        Maybe. I also think a lot of it has to do with the fact that they filmed season 4 while season 3 was airing. So, in season 4 they were reacting to what they saw in season 3 and it was all totally inorganic. So they had to do boatloads of set ups and funny editing to try to make it consist. Not to mention Jacqueline already gave away the ending a year ahead of the finale airing and never showed up to the reunion. Season 4 was a clusterf$&@.

    Trial info…In case anyone was wondering..I know I was…about what happened to Mr. Alexander’s dog, Napolean..he is alive and well and living with a close friend of Travis’. He’s blind and deaf and I’am happy he’s being well cared for…Also, a question…does anyone know where the report that defense witness Laviolette had approached and spoken to Samantha Alexander in the courtroom last week? Or if there’s any validity to it? I read on a trial board that they thought that was why Laviotette was in chambers this morning since it’s apparently illegal to contact members of the victim’s family.

    • Nancy says:

      Hi kit,
      I’m waiting for Laviolette to fly over the witness stand and have a go at Martinez. lol
      I didn’t know that happened on Friday. She had no right to do that.

      • kit9 says:

        The report was that she went up to Sam, Travis sister, when the courtroom was in break and everyone had gone but Sam and a few people. Laviolette apparently made a b line for Sam and spoke to her briefly, shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Wtf would she possibly have to say to her?…..’hey, sorry for completely demonizing your dead brother?

    • trudie says:

      I was wondering about Napolean. Do you know whether he was locked in the house the whole time before they found Travis? I am glad he is being taken care of.

      If that is true about Laviolette, there is no excuse. She has testified as an expert witness before and knows better.

      • kit9 says:

        I know only that Napolean was locked out of the bedroom. I would assume he was locked inside because it was June in Az and the temps would be 100+ but don’t know for sure. But, I was SO happy to hear he’s in a loving home! Man, I can’t find any legit source for the Laviolette/Sam thing..still looking.

    • Shannon says:

      Thanks everyone for keeping up with the trial. I wasn’t watching it, but got interested just by reading everyone’s comments. Now I’m hooked! lol I was wondering what the big hold up this morning.

  21. Nancy says:

    Margaret Thatcher died. 😦

  22. djprincessc says:

    Are we all looking at the same Kandi from last night?!?!? How is she winning the poll, her hair looked horrible that weave U-G-L-Y and why is she always so damn greasy? Her dress did look nice but not BEST dressed nice. Maybe I’m blind?? LOL.

    • Vegas Chick says:

      Cynthia’s peek-a-boob was a little ridiculous. I’m surprised that Porsha doesn’t have more votes, but I think the mob mentality thinks that Kandi looked so much better than she usually does so compared to the rest, she looked the best. 🙂

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I agree about Kandi-this is the best she has ever looked!!

        • djprincessc says:

          So she should win most improved, not best dressed!!! haha!!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Yes dj-you’re right. Most improved would be better-I think we were all so shocked at how much she improved that it swayed the vote!!!

          • chismosa says:

            I agree DJ, MOST IMPROVED– and the fashion queens kept saying it was very hard to convince Kandi to dress like that.
            Something makes me think she wanted a second-skin skank dress, short. She should cover up her legs.
            Her brows looked mighty lifted to me

      • shamrockblonde says:

        that was one reason why she got my vote – Cynthia’s dress was more of fall out boob than a peek a boob dress – her usual syle has always been better than that – Phaedra looked like she gave no thought at all to her outfit, Nene’s dress was a beautiful color but did nothing for her figure – I give her credit though for not wearing something two sizes too small – all I could focus on with Kenya was the dang fan, and I simply did not like Porsha’s dress – I liked Kandi’s hair/weave – this from the woman who has been known to wear two different socks to work…………..

        • djprincessc says:

          Hahahahahha, 2 different socks to work! Kandis weave was NOT GOOD trust me, the way it was soooo long, thin and stringy at the bottom was a big NO NO. She has a lot of money so I don’t get it!

          • HuskerHuny says:

            I voted for Kandi by default. I thought Porsha’s hair was a mess and I didn’t particularly like her dress. I think Kenya is a bit too drag-queenish for my taste. Nene’s dress had no shape and looked like a caftan to be worn around the house (a really fancy house!). Cynthia – no words. That leaves us Phaedra. Once again, too tight even though she’s seven months pregnant. So that’s why I voted for Kandi. It was just so much better than what she usually looks like!

          • shamrockblonde says:

            *hangs head* I usually wear black trouser socks to work ( my husband laughs himself silly every time I call them that – it’s very disconcerting) but somehow managed to pull on one purple and one dark green instead – did not even notice until I was at work and attended the usual 11:00 meeting whereupon I crossed my legs and saw a bright purple sock staring up at me!! – I now have an extra pair of trouser socks – stop laughing – in my bottom desk drawer –

          • chismosa says:

            Kandi’s hair, on the close ups, seemed to show the dent where the iron hit it. I know people are very conscious of not showing where the iron bends the hair, so bad job on whoever did that hair.

            My favorite color is chartreuse so I loved kra kra Kenya’s outfit.

    • Nancy says:

      Hi dj,
      I’ve missed you. Did you ever go out this the guy? I need to know these things. LOL

      • Nancy says:

        Did you ever go out with that guy?

      • djprincessc says:

        Hi Nancy! Missed you too!! No I never did, we only spoke a couple times after he flaked on me and was acting really weird so I just stopped talking to him. Thanks for asking! How are you doing? 🙂

        • Nancy says:

          Well that’s a shame. I think meeting guys is difficult with the profession you have as you mainly work alone, right? I’m doing fine thank-you. I’m trying to convince my cat that it’s not normal for her to roll around in the dirt and then to jump up on me! She’s driving me
          crazy as I have to put sheets all over the furniture.

          • djprincessc says:

            Kinda, I mean I do work alone but there are a bunch of other realtors in my office but they are mostly older like my parents age and above. Its really ok about the guy because I can spot the games from a mile away, when I was younger I would be intrigued and probably would have chased but now being older I’ll try like once or twice to give a guy a chance and then I just drop them. I’ve dated guys like him before and its just a waste of time.

            Thanks funny about your cat, what a little troublemaker! lol.

    • melthehound says:

      I think they all look pretty fugly. Most of them don’t look like they fit very well into their dresses except for those who are wearing tents (cough Nene cough)… Porshea’s (sp) would have looked nice if it wasn’t half see through. Not a look I care for. Kandi’s would look better if it actually fit her. It doesn’t look like it does. And yeah, Peek-a-boob Cynthia, not attractive looking at all.

      Oh, and no, I didn’t watch the show but, Where is the WIG?

    • princesspindy says:

      I didn’t vote because my vote would have gone to:

      None of the above.

      • djprincessc says:

        I thought Kenya was best dressed her outfit was the best but her makeup was too much and her skin didn’t look good. Cynthia would’ve been perfect if the boobs weren’t the focal point. Although the boobs didn’t bother me I can see how others would think its too much. But I agree none of them looked amazing at all.

        • princesspindy says:

          The lighting really showed that some of them have really bad skin!

          • iceNfire says:

            I looked for the None of the above option too. How is MorphineMom today PPindy?

            • princesspindy says:

              omg, she is as feisty as ever and my oldest bro said that nut job bro is bossing everyone around and argued my mom into submission to go tomorrow to the care center for a week. My bros originally wanted her to go for 2 weeks. I am so glad was not around for that argument. One more stubborn than the next!!! But I am glad he is there cuz he is a great advocate for her. Oldest says nut job is having the time of his life bossing everyone around and getting his way, just like he has always done. LOL! I tried to talk to her last night but she was too wasted, so nut job talked to me and told me it was broken….DRAMA….so when I talked to oldest today, he said no, it popped out and they put it back in at the ER, OUCH!!!

              • iceNfire says:

                Big Ow but if she is Va Voom Shabang maybe she doesn’t know it’s a Big Ow

                • princesspindy says:

                  My oldest the retired paramedic says she won’t really remember the pain….but I get The True E! Hollywood Story from him, I get the Bravo version from nut job.

                  • iceNfire says:

                    MiddleKid is the Boss around here and we just let him be. His latest rule is that all the doors in the house Must be locked if there are no cars in the drive way. Yeah Okay whatever makes you happy

                    • princesspindy says:

                      You tell middle kid that PP says, “All doors will be locked at all times!”

          • AZGirl says:

            It is all the makeup they wear. Vicki G. has terrible skin. So does Tamara.

          • kit9 says:

            Kenya’s in particular! I noticed that on the show, too. Not even good lighting can camouflage her skin problems.

  23. AZGirl says:

    OT: Celebrity Apprentice:
    Gary Busey is BSC. His comments on his head shot about Melania Trump. Too funny.

    Fortunately, his other comment was said outside of Mrs. Trump’s hearing: “Have you ever had your genitalia so excited that it spins like a Ferris wheel on a carnival ride? That’s how beautiful she is.”

    Dennis Rodman was fired. Hopefully he will move to North Korea.

    • Nancy says:

      LOL on the Dennis Rodman. ITA. Gary has brain damage so I feel sorry for him.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Can’t wait for next week – Gary will be the project manager. Should be a hoot!

    • TexasTart says:

      Funny comment about Rodman, however, I thought I saw Omarosa get on an elevator and strike a pose!

      • Boobah says:

        Yes, she did! I nearly laughed myself off the couch! Wasn’t that crazy!?! Then she did a little catwalk thing as she got into the taxi.

  24. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Speaking of Mob Wife’s AllaboutTRH has a tweet from Love saying that Left/Right has ‘let her go’,

    Good,

    • iceNfire says:

      Bravo will take her

    • nyc mama says:

      I agree. As I said last night, she was disturbing.

      it happened earlier this week and she was not allowed at their reunion which was filmed on Friday. This is from 5 days ago

      http://www.mobwivessitdown.com/2013/04/love-majewski-not-allowed-at-mob-wives.html

      I also linked to the reality tea site last night talking about it after reading her twitter where she was boycotting the show. She is blaming everyone but VH1 (she wants her own show and doesn’t want to burn bridges with them) but it was a combo of a lot of things and a lot of people made the decision, not only those she is blaming.

      Love MajewskiVH1‏@LoveMajewski18h
      This was the most horrible thing ever Thank You for being there for me n understanding how I was set up& used.#embarassing

      It’s all rather convoluted imo.

      The bottom line is they made the decision on many factors including:
      1) She was too much of a liability and everyone including VH1 feared a bad lawsuit because of her. She was a loose cannon. Apparenty they all decided she wasn’t worth the risk. Jennifer Graziano tweeted that she tried to go to bat for her but lost the battle.
      jennifer graziano‏@jenngraziano7 Apr
      @xxxx @xxxx I lost this 1. It was beyond my control. A lot of factors and lots of ppl involved in decision
      xxxx@xxxxx7 Apr
      @jenngraziano imsure @vh1 had2 change their rules after allthe fights on BBW &2 safeguard themselves from a lawsuit. Now dats reality tv
      Retweeted by jennifer graziano

      Who knows if it is true or not. She also apparently threatened to go after Renee.

      2) Her storyline was done. She hated Carla all season, had nothing else to bring to the show and then attacked her so her role was done. Finito.

      She has been going on and on on twitter and facebook all week.

      • iceNfire says:

        It was all too fake to me. Big Ang says she saw Love’s eye change but decides to go outside with Drita anyway and din’t bother to take Ramona with them…..how convenient

        • iceNfire says:

          * Carla? the one everybody doesn’t like

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            LOL, Yes, It was Carla…the two both look alike but Carla is thinner.

            I actually kind of like Carla, she seems the most normal out of the lot. Big Anj also seems like nice lady despite her past with the law.

      • chismosa says:

        I’m behind on Mob Wives but doesn’t Renee’s sister run the whole damn production?!? So Renee can’t be tweeting out that there “was nothing she could do”

        BS

        At least Love has a physical ailment to excuse her behavior. What was Drita 1.0’s excuse. Animal.

        • nyc mama says:

          I answered some below but just looked it up the production companies involved in MW besides Vh1/Viacom are Just Jenn Productions/Electus Prod/Left/right Prod./The Weinstein Company.so it is more than just Jennifer Graziano who is making decisions.

          BTW, Electus is Ben Silverman who we discussed when we were talking about Adrienne Maloof’s new reality show – maybe she and Love can partner now that they both were let go of their respective shows. 😉

          Love had this problem long before her accident. She shows no remorse. At least Drita has started to reflect on her behavior and is trying to change for her children. Love still brags about shooting one BF, poisoining another, stabbing abother in front of his mother, etc. much of this happened long before she had her excuse – the accident..

          • chismosa says:

            Yeah I know, there is absolutely NO logic to it NYC mama, but I will take Love over Drita (and Carla) any day. Just a gut thing I have about them.

            Yes my guts may be stabbed but, whatevs. Ha!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Oh wow…I must have missed your post about this yesterday. Thanks for the link.
        I think you made an excellent point as to why she doesn’t want Vh1 getting blamed.

        Does she have a much of a fan following on twitter? I know when she first confessed to stabbing people, I knew all I needed to know about her.

        • nyc mama says:

          I agree 100%. She one dimensional and not a dimesion I want to be around or like. she only has about 18k fans, not many compared to the others.

          I think that Viacom/Vh1 want to cut their losses especially since she only added one thing this year. And the whole nonsense about the angel wings was ridiculous. How many other companies use angel wings for their logo. I suppose Victoria Secrets stole her idea too.

          I like the new improved Drita and she has other dimensions – mother, career, and she shows some vulnerability. I like Carla and Big Ang too. I vacilate with Renee but don’t really care for Karen or Ramona.

          Renee’s sister heads Just Jenn produccations, just one of several production companies. There is also left/right, The Weinstein Co. and maybe 1 or 2 others plus Vh1/Viacom so it isn’t just Jennifer Graziano’s decision.

          • chismosa says:

            Jesus that many production companies to make one measley Mob (some not in Mob) Wives? When it takes one production company to take care of 20+ episodes of a HWs season? That is fishy.

            I don’t like VH1s new programming. I miss Tough love and the stupid reality stuff contestants, the one they had to stop because the guy killed his girlfriend or something.

        Point of Clarification: Carly Rae Jepsen sings “Call Me Maybe” and I ONLY know this because I spent a hour or 2 one day watching all the different Military videos of our troops singing this song, they are really cute!!! Just wanted to give Carly credit where credit is due.

  27. chismosa says:

    I have to read upwards, but as for the first Miss USA that was black, wasnt that lady mentioned half Native American or some other mix? Maybe Kenya (and some die-hards) consider Kenya the first black Miss USA because she is 100% African American?
    You know, like that controversy that some don’t consider president Obama to really be the first BLACK president because he’s not 100% black?

    Just wondering if that is where the confusion came in.

    ……and twirl…….

    • iceNfire says:

            She uses Japanese straightening. But is almost growing it out now….

      Also, didnt Andy HOST the miss USA? Or am I thinking of something else? I thought with Giuliana Rancic? He was totally antagonizing Kenya. You do want to be miss USA not AMERICA
