Real Housewives of Orange County by Stars99

Remember last week, we left off at Heather and Terry’s house for an end of the summer “Clam Bake without Onion Rings.”  Vicki had just recently had a lot of plastic surgery done to her face, her daughter Briana gave birth to the cutest baby boy “Troy” (well, I’m sure he doesn’t hold a candle to BB’s cute little “Jack”), and Gretchen and Tamra are now dressing as the Doublemint Twins everywhere they go. No really, it’s just adorably precious when adult women dress alike, right?

Vicki walks into the brood of vipers sans Brooks because either she doesn’t want him to be around Tamra or because they’ve broken up – it just depends on which face Vicki happens to be talking out of at the time.  Unfortunately, Vicki’s face is pretty danged swollen and no amount of badly combed bird’s nest hair will hide it, try as she might.  The minute they see Vicki, Heckle and Jeckle (Gretchen and Tamra) immediately commence cackling about, “Look who showed up, cawww cawww!”  Tamra pretends to be oh, so worried because the big meanie Vicki is there and they haven’t seen each other since last season wrapped and she might attack her.  Right… because Tamra’s the one who was attacked all last season… NOT!  That award goes to Alexis – but fear not, according to Heather’s blog, Alexis wasn’t excluded from this particular “Clam Bake,” she just wasn’t included.  Now that’s just OC Circlespeak if you ask me…

o Heckle and JeckleOkay, back to the land of fruit and nuts… Gretchen, in her very best impression of a mature woman, encourages Tamra to be nice and cordial towards Vicki.  So Heckle and Jeckle summon all their earthly strength to put on their smiley plastic faces… oh wait… they’re already wearing them… and civilly greet Vicki and ask her about her new grandbaby… You know, the one they made fun of her having just last week?  Vicki assures them that Briana and the baby are doing well.  In Vicki’s talking head, she describes that seeing Tamra for the first time is just crap because she’s flashing back to the end of the season party last year which was actually coincidentally held at Heather’s house!  Wow… déjà vu!  She thinks about all the meanie weenie things Tamra said about Brooks last season behind Vicki’s back, to her face, and around her side to her daughter.  Remember on last year’s reunion show that even Briana sided with Tamra against Brooks while sitting on the couch next to Vicki.  It was so sad… because it really appeared that Vicki’s own daughter joined forces with evil Tamra against Vicki and said some really mean things against her mom on national TV.  I’m no Brooks fan… but c’mon.

To wins and HeatherFortunately, like all Bravo shows there is plenty of drink to make the medicine go down… Vicki thanks Heather for having the “clam bake” while Heckle and Jeckle step away to caww about Vicki’s new face.  They know she’s had some work done but they don’t know exactly what was done.  Tamra caws to Gretchen, “WTF… Are you not in awe like I’m in awe?”  They think Vicki is just pretending nothing’s changed… Vicki defiantly states in her talking head, “To everyone who compared my looks to Miss Piggy… now what?”  Heather goes on the record to say she thinks that Vicki has had a “little something” done… spoken like the dutiful wife of a plastic surgeon.  She goes on to say that if Vicki’s happy, has confidence, and feels good then she’s happy for her. Terry, the plastic surgeon, says that asking someone if they’ve had plastic surgery is like asking your wife if she’s gained weight – you just don’t do it.  So instead, he asks Vicki if she’s lost weight, which is a completely ordinary question that the husband of the woman who shoed you out of her home last season would ask you, right?  Vicki says she’s lost twelve pounds.  Unfortunately, I’ve found them – Evidently, I’m sitting on them right now, but that’s a whole nuther Oprah…

Heather expresses to Vicki that she is sorry about Brooks.  Vicki explains that she’s just taking a time-out with Brooks – and seems unsure about the future of their relationship.  Gretchen, queen of healthy relationships, thinks that Vicki’s story about breaking-up with Brooks is bologna, but not the Oscar Meyer kind – more like Kim’s pillow kind. Sorry, I’m still not over RHOBH yet…  Vicki tells Heather that she and Brooks still talk and occasionally see each other and they’re in a good place.  Again, OC Circlespeak.

Eddie, by the way, in an effort to look more manly, has grown more facial hair than I remember him having last season.   Alas. Eddie has to tear himself away from the festivities to go speak at a city council meeting to make a plea for construction and parking permit approvals for he and Tamra’s new pretend gym.  Tamra, for the 4 billionth time already this seasons, reminds us that she owns 51% of the gym to Eddie’s 49% which makes her the boss… Yeah, that’s gonna work out… At least they’ll have a gym to troll for fresh meat together…

Everyone’s seated around the honkin’ table – Heather, who is seated on her royal throne-sized chair, has invited some other friends and a couple of family members.  One of them might have actually been her son – and I would have watched the episode again just to verify that – but frankly Scarlett, I don’t give a darn.  As they’re sitting there, awkward silence fills the air.  Tamra maturely says that her plan is to just ignore Vicki.  Nice.  Heather gives a toast expressing thankfulness for having such a nice table of friends and family to celebrate the ending the summer.  Cheers!

Since Eddie has long since left the scene, Heather decides to grill Tamra about potential wedding dates.  Tamra uncomfortably responds that they’re trying to get the business started… After all, they’ve only been engaged for 8 months – Yes, you’ve been engaged for 8 months and have yet to set a date.  In Tamra’s talking head, she blames her fiancé for them not having a wedding date set yet.  You didn’t hear it from me, but allegedly, there are rumors that Tamra allegedly may not be the gender of his choice, allegedly – and anyway, he technically can’t get married since same sex marriages are not yet legal in the state of California – allegedly.  (Did I use “allegedly” enough?)  Cue the most uncomfortable candlelight bath scene I’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing from last year. Down that full glass of wine, Eddie, before entering…

o Terry is in Twouble StareHeather then gives the lobster-challenged housewives a lesson on eating lobster.  She explains that it’s like eating an artichoke… chew chew chew.  Naively, she says, “You chew from the outside… and then let it come in your mouth.”  Of course Tamra’s mind immediately jumps directly into the gutter, where it currently owns a 3 story condo. Heather stammers that you know what she meant.  Vicki, after having evidently completed a year of acting classes at Juilliard, asks with a perfectly straight face, “What I want to know is this:  Where are the onion rings?”  She insists that she really, really loves onion rings with this kind of food… Heather glares at Terry and burns a hole into his head with her dirty look.  Terry innocently denies he said anything to Vicki about having onion rings.  Heather menacingly outstretches her long, pointy finger at Terry and says, “Honey, stop it!”  I’m dying laughing… and I’m still craving onion rings from last week, dagnabit!

Finally, clams are served at the “clam bake.”  Heather clarifies that it’s completely acceptable to eat with your hands at a “clam bake.”  She makes Gretchen try a clam and she kind of gags it down.  Gretchen, who is seated next to Vicki asks her where Brooks is that evening. Vicki says he’s traveling right now – but they’re kind of on a little break right now anyway.  Gretchen snidely says, “but I thought you were so in love!” and Tamra, Miss Buttinski asks from across the mammoth table, “So you’re not together?”  Vicki says they’ve taken a little step back in their relationship and that she’s not sure where they’re going.

In a surprising turn of events, Vicki and Gretchen are having a civil conversation.  Vicki asks Gretchen how she and Slade made it through the rough times when everyone was on their back about their relationship. Gretchen and Vicki conclude they’ve kind of had a role reversal since now everyone seems to be on Vicki and Brooks’ back about their relationship.  Gretchen insists that she just loves Slade and that’s all that really matters.  Gag.  Gretchen does say that it’s hard – but that really last season Vicki seemed to be moving too fast – and that she and Tamra had her best interest at heart when they gave them a hard time about it.  Vicki and Gretchen start laughing together which of course, completely pisses off Tamra.  Vicki, seeing Tamra’s green eye of jealousy, jokingly says that Tamra is giving them the evil eye… Rut roh…

oevil eyeOf course, Tamra is cranky that Vicki even brought up the evil eye.  Tamra is conveniently forgetting that she had run-ins with both Vicky and Gretchen in two different seasons about the “evil eye.”  Vicki, in a moment of honesty, asks Tamra if she thought they were a little off all last season.  Tamra said Vicki wasn’t herself – that she was going through a divorce… Tamra confesses that maybe she wasn’t there for Vicki.  Vicki quickly confirms that she wasn’t.  This makes Tamra get up from the table and storm into the house crying.  In her talking head, Vicki said, “Whatever… you want people to follow you – I’m not following you.”  Never fear, Heather follows Tamra.  Tamra, who hasn’t yet completed her acting classes, makes believe she is crying and says that she doesn’t want to do this again… Heather says that this is the time for her to be mature… that she needs to get it together and then come back out for the rest of dinner.  Gretchen asks Vicki if she thinks that she and Tamra’s friendship will ever be okay again.  Vicki tells Gretchen she is really guarded.

Heather comes back to awkward weirdness around the table and quickly asks what people thought of the clams?  Oh yes, they were good!  As if on cue, Terry asks, “Where is the steak?” Heather threateningly waves a leaf of lettuce at him and tells Terry to “Stop!” As the sun goes down, they adjourn downstairs to the rec room to have dessert.

o Dance LessonIt’s “Date Night” for Alexis and Jim and they’re going to have a dancing lesson.  Perhaps this is Alexis’ way of auditioning for “Dancing with the Stars.”  Alexis brought her own shoes which for some reason reminds her of the shoes from the Wizard of Oz, except that they’re black and they look nothing like the ruby slippers.  Oh, and they’re open toed so we get the chance to criticize Alexis’ choice of painting the toenails on one foot red and the other foot a silverish color.  Jim’s disappointed that Alexis didn’t bring him a set of leggings to wear… oh, wait, was that a joke?  I almost laughed… well, not really.  Alexis tells us that Jim has danced the Lambada.  Thanks so much for that mental image… please, pass the eye bleach!  The instructor asks whose idea it was for them to come to dance class?  Ummm… duh… Alexis thought it would be a good idea.  She explained that last year they lost a whole lot of money on a home and Alexis thinks Jim felt like a failure.  Evidently, a dance class can cure all of that.… They start the class and for some reason they have to tell Jim that he is supposed to lead… Step slow… quick quick… slow… quick quick… Last year, Alexis made the mistake of trying to talk to Gretchen about their issues but this year she will talk to Vicki.  Alexis says they’re stronger and happier now than they ever have been… Jim’s getting lucky tonight.. He says it’s going to be quick quick slow… TMI, Jim, TMI.

Meanwhile, down in the rec room… drinks are flowing and desserts are plentiful.  Tamra takes one look at the desserts and asks Terry if they came from Costco?  Tamra says she gets them from Costco all the time… Terry, knowing that this would put his wife over the edge and while feigning innocence asked her if the desserts came from Costco?  Heather snapped, “Just stop!”  Terry retorted, “That’s what Tamra said…” As she walks away, Heather strongly pinches her husband in the arm as the universal wifely sign for “Shut-Up.”  Heather thinks she really needs to get control of that man…

o Wine cellarTamra gets a phone call from Eddie and their permits were approved!  Whoopie! Now, they’re official owners of a fitness studio. Great… Now we’re going to be treated to a never ending infomercial about it this season. Lucky us! Heather thinks Vicki and Tamra need to talk and move forward.  Vicki cautions that they need to be nice but at the same time insists that she’s always nice.  They move into the small, glass enclosed wine cellar.  Tamra doesn’t let Heather come in – she wants it to just be her and Vicki.  It might just be me, but I would NOT want to be anywhere with Tamra and Vicki and that many bottles of wine that are accessible for either drinking or throwing.

Tamra and Vicki decide that you don’t always agree what your family does, but you love them anyway… that they were so close for so long – that maybe they can get to a better place in their friendship.  Meanwhile, banished outside of the glass doors, Gretchen tells Heather she thinks that Vicki is just putting on a dog and pony show about how her life sucks.  Gretchen says you can’t live your life based on what other people think… Gretchen is on the phone with Slade, and he reminds Gretchen that Vicki has been a really good liar in the past so there’s no reason to believe her now.  Inside the wine cellar, Tamra is insisting that she doesn’t actually hate Brooks – but that he just came across to her too much like a charmer who was trying too hard to get Vicki. Vicki says that a guy is going to have to work hard to get her. Tamra thinks that if someone says all the right things that it’s hard to see through all their bologna.  They “happen” to see a bottle of wine from the winery that Vicki and Don/Tamra and Simon visited during a previous season when they were all way more married than they are now.  Cue the music to “The Way We Were.”  Perhaps David Foster can accompany Babs on the piano – Sorry, I warned you I wasn’t over RHOBH yet… baby steps.  Dang… now I’m craving lemons.

Tamra brings up Vicki’s grandson and that she doesn’t feel like she can go see him or visit Vicki… They conclude that friends have disagreements all the time… Tamra says she’s sorry… Vicki says she’s sorry and she’s open to seeing what can happen. Somewhere a bell rings and an angel gets its’ wings.  In her talking head, Vicki says at first that she’s not open to forgive, well, maybe a little – -but she’ll never forget… On that note, Vicki exits – stage left.  Tamra muses if she will ever be able to trust Vicki again…

Oh good. It’s time for the gratuitous ride home in a limo with Heckle and Jeckle.  They think something is weird with Vicki. Whew, it’s been barely 3 seconds and Tamra’s already talking trash about Vicki.  It’s eerily comforting to see that some things never change.  Gretchen insists that Vicki is a liar and that she’s gonna turn this whole thing around and blame them that she’s not able to be with the love of her life – and that she’s resorting to plastic surgery to make her life better.  Gretchen says that it drives her “bananers.” Awww, isn’t that just the cutest lil thang?  She said “bananas” with an “ers”… Tamra thinks that Gretchen truly believes that if she becomes friends with Vicki again that something bad is going to happen between Gretchen and Tamra. This must be true because adult women can’t be friends with more than one person at a time.  Actually, it feels more like she’s telegraphing a future Bravo-assigned storyline for this season.

o TrampolineAlexis and Jim are almost ready to open the Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park in Anaheim, CA – so of course, we get a tour.  Now you would think that if you’re about to open a trampoline business, that you’d have some experience ummm… jumping on a trampoline? However, it helps if you have a small modicum of rhythm – and Alexis just seems off her game.  Then Alexis makes a feeble attempt to be the first one to jump into the adult foam pit.  This required you use the trampoline as a launch pad into the pit – and well, our little Alexis got kinda tripped up.  I sure hope their insurance policy is paid up cuz this entire place is just an accident waiting to happen.  I think I saw a designated area where all the ambulance chasing lawyers will have to wait their turn for their clients.  Jim, remembering that the only footage of him this episode is of him dancing, does a manly jump backwards into the foam pit.  It may just be me, but he really looks like he’s lost a chunk of weight.  In talking about their business venture, Alexis proudly says that her husband has been an entrepreneur all along but that the other women have had issues with it because they’ve really never known what he does for a living.  Jim says the capacity for this huge place is 100… and that they will quickly sell out… Wow… that doesn’t sound like you can make much money at $20 for 2 hours.  There’s a lot of overhead, too. They do have a cute birthday room… ooo ooo ooo and you can play dodge ball!  They’re having a lot of media scheduled to come to their grand opening… and with all of her on-camera reporting experience, Alexis is the appointed spokesperson for Sky Zone… Alexis says there were a lot of rumors that she was fired from Fox 5 – but that couldn’t be further from the truth – she just had to take a step back from her commitments.  Alexis seems to think she’s stronger this season vs. last season – and says that the women can belittle her, be mean to her and even be snarky towards her but that she will just laugh all the way to the bank.

Yes, evidently it’s true, Slade has a one hour radio show daily from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm called “Radio Slade” on 92.7 fm.  No, I haven’t listened to him, thankfully.  Oh goodie, we get to see him “in action” along with his cohost on air.  He is saying how there’s a person that’s not really well liked in their social circle who looks like a Muppet…(Gee, who could that be?) but then all of the sudden, at least according to some internet reports – after having like her 13th plastic surgery… she shows up to a party looking like Mickey Rourke… (Mean, mean, mean!) So Slade wonders if you should acknowledge the fact that there’s been a change… Should you actually confront the elephant in the room?  In a very feeble attempt at being funny, he postulates that if he does acknowledge the elephant in the room – then he had better bring some peanuts because you really don’t want to piss off the elephant.  Guffaw… Laugh-o-rama.  Gretchen comes in and says that she likes seeing Slade working in his environment.  She says he’s the highest rated hour on the play list… and that he’s kickin’ some butt…  She and Slade talks to his boss and he’s given an actual check – Which I suppose is supposed to prove that he’s no longer a good for nothing dead beat dad.  Congratulations, you got a paycheck.  Gretchen wants the check.  Umm… Gretchen, he has a kid who needs the check, thank you very much.  Gretchen says that this year he’s doing well financially… so now she thinks marriage is definitely on their horizon… KMN… Wait… perhaps Tamra and Gretchen could have a double wedding since they like to dress like twins now, anyway! Now wouldn’t that be just the cutest lil thang?

It’s renovation time at Vicki’s house.  Since Don has moved out, Vicki wants to redo the house to reflect her taste.  As if Don ever had a say about the decorations in the house – Puhleeze.  I do get it, though – it’s kind of normal that she would want to change everything completely after her divorce.  She is “Vickizing” the house.  Peter, the artist, is beautifully hand painting peacocks on the cream colored walls in one room – not sure which one it was.  Vicki is going for a light, rich, Mediterranean motif – Yes, cuz that’s what I think of when I see peacocks – a Mediterranean motif.  Briana is not happy with all the construction.  Evidently, when Briana was 6 and a half months pregnant, Vicki tells her she wants to do some construction on the house – but not that much.  First it was the family room – then all of the bathrooms, and now it’s the whole house.  Briana isn’t happy with all the paint fumes and all of the dust that’s flying around.  I wouldn’t be either with a newborn.  I’d probably have to make other living arrangements, to be honest.  But really, it’s Vicki’s house and she can do whatever the heck she wants to with it.  We all know everything is all about Vicki, don’t we?  Vicki takes Troy in her arms and starts talking grandmotherly baby talk to him. She says that Troy is just what the family needed to put them all back together again – Kind of like Humpty Dumpty… Umm… Vicki… the saying goes, “All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again.”… So you’re really going to have to brush up on nursery rhymes if you’re going to be a good nana, dagnabit!  o NanaBriana is realizing just how hard it is to be a mom and so she decides she’s going to give her mom some slack.  She’d really love time just to sleep.  Uh oh… Troy has glitter on his head again… Briana chides her mom about wearing stuff with glitter around the baby because she’s always cleaning it off of him.  Vicki says it must be her lip gloss.  Vicki is really just going to concentrate on showering this little one with lots of love, gifts, and kisses… which means glitter is prolly gonna be involved somehow.

The 30 second fake out between commercials is Alexis modeling black flip flops with rhinestones… Jim doesn’t understand why she wears them until he tries them on.  “It’s the cushion – it feels like you’re walking on a pillow top bed,” Alexis explains.  Is it just me, or was it way too natural for Jim to try on women’s shoes?

Okay, now we’re at Tamra’s and Eddie’s house and all of Tamra’s kids have made hand prints on brightly colored canvases…  Tamra decides they want Bronx the dog to do one, too… So they dip his cute paw print into sky blue paint and then place it on a bright lime green colored canvas… Whoa… color alert!  Eddie asks Tamra if she talked with Vicki and set her straight.  Tamra said that she thinks Vicki wants back into her life… Tamra says she considers Vicki to be part of her family and that it was just last year when things were bad.  Tamra said Vicki made it sound like Brooks broke up with her… Tamra insists she only wanted what’s best for Vicki and that she never said anything that attacked Vicki personally.   Eddie says Vicki is trying to manipulate things again.  He tells Tamra that Vicki is all about lying, cheating, deceiving… He said to Tamra, “I highly recommend you don’t become friends with her again… don’t trust her don’t let her back in because she’s only going to hurt you again.”  Tamra seems so confused because Gretchen and Eddie are telling her to stay away from Vicki and Heather is telling her to give her another chance.  What’s a girl supposed to do?  Tamra is just so overwhelmed by it all… Stay tuned for the answers to these and all of life’s greatest mysteries on next weeks’ episode… Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?

Dancing with the Stars by Lisette

As the dancers and pros are introduced Lisa didn’t come down the stairs with Gleb. We’re told she is resting and didn’t make rehearsals. They’re letting her decide if she wants to dance tonight or not. Guess we have to wait and see…

Tonight is remembering the best year of your life. Also first solo’s of the season. First up…

Sean & Peta – Viennese Waltz – Score 20

  • CAI – 6
  • LG – 7
  • BT – 7

Sean’s best year is 2012 because its the year he met Katheryn. His parents are still married and that’s the love story he wants for himself. His waltz looks to me clunky and robotic. The audience loves it though. His solo is hard to look at. Of course he ends the dance by dancing his way to his “finance” in the audience and kissing her. Len liked it had a few quibbles. Bruno called it sweet agreed with Len’s quibbles. Carrie Ann called out two lifts which are no no’s for the waltz.

The twitter voting for tonight is which male and female pro you want to see dance tomorrow. Now they show previews of who is coming up next. I hoped the producers wouldn’t do it but they did. They showed the footage of Lisa fainting. Now I know they showed the beejesus out of Marie Osmond fainting and I thought that was disrespectful then and I think it is disrespectful now. Seriously, it is crass and uncalled for. We know she fainted. We don’t need to see her falling to the ground. Sorry (deep breath) rant over.

Victor & Lindsay – Paso Doble – Score 18

  • CAI – 6
  • LG – 6
  • BT – 6

Victor’s important year is when he won his first boxing title. He recounts how he was dead broke and entered this fight with no chance of winning and he came away with the championship. And winning enabled him to start being able to support his family. I thought this dance with its aggression and powerful moves would be right up Victor’s alley but he seemed slightly befuddled throughout the whole dance. Poor Lindsay was dancing her butt off but it did not look good. Bruno said instead of dancing the paso doble he destroyed it. Bruno hopes he comes back because he knows he can do better. Carrie Ann said he has the passion and the heart but it doesn’t transcend to the dance floor. Len admires his spirit and determination but the paso needed more refinement and a little more shaping but he gave his all. (I wonder if DL would have received the same sentiment?)

Jacoby & Karina – Foxtrot – Score 24

  • CAI – 8
  • LG – 8
  • BT – 8

2012 was Jacoby’s best year. Not because he won the Superbowl but because it is when his son was born. Jacoby was raised without his dad and that fuels his desire to be more for his son. He’s dancing it for his son. AWWWW! The dance was sweet and of course his son was in the audience with his grandma! He’s so cute you just want to nomnomnom on those cheeks! Jacoby has a huge wingspan so when he does those sweeping motions with his arms it looks comical instead of elegant. His solo was cute though. And of course his mama is crying in the audience. I love seeing loving family reactions. Carrie Ann liked it but she did admit that it wasn’t a traditional foxtrot. She talked about how he has to tuck his bottom in. I was thinking that during the dance too. Its that he’s so tall and Karina is so short he has to bend down to her level and well his bottom sticks out. Len liked it! Bruno, oh Bruno! He loved it but agreed about his wingspan.

aly and markAlexandra & Mark – Contemporary – Score 27

  • CAI – 9
  • LG – 9
  • BT – 9

Alexandra also picked 2012 because she represented America in the Olympics. I imagine there will be lots of tumbling in her routine. Aly’s dance was a real crowd pleaser. She kept the tumbling to one routine which was nice. There were lots of lifts and it was a very emotional dance. I’m not a fan of contemporary so I can’t offer more. Some of the Fab Five were in the audience. Len liked it and made a joke about how her last tumbling routine could have gone higher and later he would show her how to do it. It was a joke but Aly is very serious and didn’t get it. Mark had to tell her it was a joke. Bruno loved it and said he saw parts of Twyla Tharp and Graham (according to google Martha Graham) and said well done. Carrie Ann was proud of Aly because she was completely in the moment for dancing which is different from her gymnastics training and Carrie Ann found it mesmerizing. On her way up to get her scores Aly runs to hug her teammates, Kyla Ross and Gaby Douglas, and her dad is there too!

Andy & Sharna – Viennese Waltz – Score 21

  • CAI – 7
  • LG – 7
  • BT – 7

2013 is so far Andy’s best year. Andy is dedicating his dance to his 15 year old daughter. He says his kids have had it rough because they have him for a dad. This one is going to be a weeper. He was really good. Bruno called it the best he’s danced since show one. Carrie Ann is crying and can’t talk. She tells andy to come to her so she can give him a hug. She’s really emotional. She said his movements were small but what he said with his movements was really grand. Len said you came to this show a man and you will leave it a hero. He didn’t really critique the dance thought…LOL!

Zendaya & Val – Samba – Score 26

  • CAI – 9
  • LG – 8
  • BT – 9

2009 is Zendaya’s best year. It is when she started working in Hollywood. It is when she was “discovered” (her quotes). Of course the dance is amazing and really the best of the season! I love how Val was able to keep the choreography age appropriate. I even loved how her costume was simple black pants and white top. She is really fun to watch. Her solo was supposed to be reminiscent of Beyonce but it really channeled Michael Jackson. Really good dance! And Wynonna was in the audience cheering her on. Wynonna had the best smile on her face. She should do that more often 😉 Carrie Ann loved it! She called Zendaya Baby Beyonce and complimented Val on his choreography. Len wanted more samba content in the solo but he called the dance well done. Bruno is out of his chair. Says it was a samba for today and every kid would want to dance a samba like her.

Ingo & Kym – Viennese Waltz – Score 23

  • CAI – 8
  • LG – 7
  • BT – 8

2009 is Ingo’s best year. It is the year he married his wife. He says his wife completed his life and he’s dancing this for her. His sons are in the rehearsal and he asks his oldest what would you give your dad and his son whispers “I give you a three”…LOL! So cute! He danced a really nice waltz. Len commends him on the footwork and liked his solo. He said Ingo had a few incidences with his arms but overall good. Bruno called it elegant. He likes that Ingo takes what the judges tell him and puts it into practice. Agreed with Len on the arms. Carrie Ann also liked that he took her advise from last week and it showed. She also said how when you add love to a dance a dancer blooms.

DL & Cheryl – Foxtrot – Score 21

CAI – 7
LG – 7
BT – 7

DL’s best year of his life is when he was in seventh or eight grade. It was a time before life got real. He says nothing says Compton like the foxtrot…LOL! DL looks like he finally is having fun with this dancing thing. It was his best dance. He moved his hips for the judges! It was cute. Bruno says his performance was better than ever and he was going to get an extra point for the butt. Carrie Ann loved it! Len said it was far better and it had elements of fun and it was smoother. Len said someone told him DL trained a lot more this week than before and it showed.

Kellie & Derek – Rumba – Score 26

  • CAI – 9
  • LG – 8
  • BT – 9

Kellie’s best year is when she married her husband, Jan 1, 2011. Kellie will be dancing to a song written and sung by her husband, Kyle Jacobs. Kellie talks about how they eloped and she shows some video from their wedding. Kellie is such a gorgeous dancer. I normally don’t like the rumba but this dance was beautiful. Carrie Ann says she makes the prettiest pictures with her dancing. Carrie Ann said her dance was a little clipped but still beautiful. Len agreed but he thought it was great with her husband playing and her dancing. Bruno called it beautiful and said it was scored by the music of love…awwww…

gleb and lisaLisa & Gleb – Cha Cha – Score 18

  • CAI – 6
  • LG – 6
  • BT – 6

Well we finally see Lisa. She has been MIA the whole show. She’s in costume so I think she will dance. Lisa’s best year of her life was Pandy’s wedding. They show the buildup and then the fainting. Poor Gleb didn’t know what to do or think. They take Lisa to the Dr. and he tells her to rest but she doesn’t want to. Thankfully Gleb doesn’t listen and takes her home. Now on to the cha cha! Lisa is more alive than any of her other dances! LOL! She’s much improved but she misses a few steps. She was seriously so much better! Len said she made a few mistakes and it could have been crisper and sharper but that can be attributed to being under rehearsed. He said it could have been better but still well done. Bruno says she looks pretty good for coming out of the hospital. He said it was good for being under rehearsed and hopefully she can get herself together and show them what she can do next time. Carrie Ann says she’s looking good and she chided Gleb for a lift. First time was a warning and this time it means points off. In the fishbowl all the contestants and pros are on their feet supporting Lisa. She looks very tired but good for her for making it through.

So Aly & Mark are at the top and Victor & Lindsay and Lisa & Gleb are both on the bottom. Who do you think will go home tomorrow?

  1. Rebecca says:

    Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work we go!

  2. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone and Miss Rebecca. I think we will have great weather again. 83 yesterday. Oh it was good.

    Miss Boston I love your artistry but Tamra in the bathtub. Gag me!! -) Great job as always.

    Have a great day everyone.

  3. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Starzy-while I love your blog and all it’s snarkaliciousness I must point out a few errors. Gretchen said Vicky had to REVERT to plastic surgery-not resort. Alexis said her firing from FOX couldn’t be FURTHEST from the truth not further. Gretchen said Vicky was putting on a SONG AND PONY show not dog and pony. (Thanks Catseye for catching that one)
    These women work hard at being dim witted and I think they should get the credit they deserve!!! Ok I feel better now…thanks for the great blog Starzy…go treat yourself to some onion rings and a Costco cake!!!

    • plainviewsue says:

      Too funny!!!!! Thanks Jill for pointing out their blunders!!!! And Starz, great recap as always.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      LOL, seriously Starzy, stop making them sound smarter!

    • Powell says:

      LOL JNNTJ. 🙂 And Tamra said the cake tasted like it was from Costco and Terry just asked,Heather if it was. Gosh. Miss Perfect sure has that stick planted well up her behind. She gets on ky nerves w/that. I’m not a big Terry fan but we may get to know “him” if Heather wasn’t acting like his mom all the time. It’s any wonder he speaks at all.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I know she is mean to him but I find him to be annoying as hell. He is like a child with his remarks…they deserve each other!!!

      • Orson says:

        Is it only me, or have her reactions to those words been a bit too much for just a side dish she’s not serving at a clambake? Is it possible Heather gets so upset at “onion rings” because that’s a personal code between her and the hubster for something sexual she does to/for him?

  4. missusmc says:

    I like Heather. I like Alexis. I like Briana. I like Troy. That’s about it for this show.

    I’m glad Heather and Alexis are friends now, so I am no longer conflicted with liking both 🙂

    I did notice some people last night not liking Briana complaining about all the construction. I’m with B on this one. If I were renting an apartment and before bringing my newborn home, the owner decided to completely renovate the building, I would complain. Newborns should not be exposed to construction, and newborns are super overwhelming, so I imagine Briana is feeling a little claustrophobic. Vicki doesn’t need to redo her home, or her face, or anything. She needs to just relax and take some ADD meds and just think things through before acting. She’s the oldest one here, but quite impulsive and child like in many ways.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Haha Misssusmc, so glad to hear Troy hasn’t done anything yet to turn you off. LOL!!! Give him time…

      • missusmc says:

        Yes, he’s fine for now 🙂 We just need to keep Tamra away from him! She seems to ruin everyone she’s around!

        • pat says:

          I hope Troy doesn’t get all full of himself, and start thinking of viewers as his “fans” & start stricking poses with hand on hip, etc. Gawd, I hope that doesn’t happen.

    • Powell says:

      I don’t understand why Heather didn’t like Alexis in the first place. Alexis mentioning material things is annoying hut its no reason to dislike her since she’s not an evil person & doesn’t do things to hurt people. Gretch, Tamra & Vicki especially have gone out of their way to hurt people throughout the seasons.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Heather said Alexis saying nasty things about her “acting career” really hurt her. But I seem to remember that Gretchen said something nasty as well in her talking heads, as well as saying she had a stick up her ass.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Gretchen did say sumthin(Gretchen speak for something) last season about not ever seeing Heather on TV or whatever. She often talks about the stick that is firmly up Heather’s ass.

        • Powell says:

          Didn’t Alexis say that after the 1st meeting w/Heather and Heather called her ditzy or something? And sue you & JNNTJ are right that Gretchen did say Heather had a stick up her butt.

    • $25,000 says:

      I don’t blame Brianna for not being happy about the renovation. The noise, dust and fumes can’t be good for the baby. I started getting annoyed with her though when she kept complaining to Vicki about glitter getting on the baby and then saying that Vicki couldn’t have anyone she was dating over to the house while Brianna and company were living there. It’s Vicki’s house, Brianna and her family are living there for free, and I think Brianna needs to lighten up with the demands on her mom.

      • Kokuanani says:

        Did you notice how Vickie did NOT support Troy’s head? I was yelling at the tv every time she would hold him in such an inadequate manner.

  5. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    One of the Ladies from the Lynnfam FB page went to see Andy Cohen last night. She had some fun info to share…thanks Zuzy for letting me bring it over here.

    Some things from tonight’s meet and greet with Andy Cohen. 1.Andy was asked what city he would belong to if he was a housewife- He said NY because he lives there and loves it.

    2. He said he does not consider himself famous so when he sees such a huge crowd like ours he is really touched.

    3. When asked if he plans out what will happen with certain housewives. He said they can’t , he gave an example he said he has been wanting Lauri to come back to OC for a while and he thought because Vicki was basically left on an Island at the end of the season, he was like Vicki I’m bringing Lauri for you so you can have someone. But he says that is not want happened and we will see.

    4. Someone told him in the BH reunion it was the first time we see him aggressive when speaking about Adrienne. He said he was pissed. He said he loved the Atlanta reunion it was none stop fun and it had some dark moments but mostly fun. He said he threw some shade at Kenya & Pheadra.

    5. They asked him if he had to do an ALL STAR cast what wives would he choose– He said Ramona, Nene, Lisa, Adriana, Tamra & Teresa.

    6. Someone asked him if he could invite 3 people to a dinner party who would he choose. He said 1.Carole Razi because well she already comes to his dinner parties.2. Nene (because she’s fun and this is my fave part) he could not think of the last person and I yelled out MAMA ELSA and he said yes Mama Elsa pointed at me and gave me the thumbs up. 🙂

    7. When asked out of these 3 housewives Lisa V. Tamra and Nene who would he marry, shag and kill he said Marry Lisa ( for her house) Shag Tamra and Kill Nene even though he loves her.

    8. They asked what celeb was his fave to interview 1. His icons from his youth was his answer Meryl Streep, Joan Rivers., Dan Rather
    Who was most awkward celeb – Scot Baio
    What celeb would we be shocked to know he hooked up with- Answer is Lance Bass

    9.He also said last year Jersey’s reunion was very awkward because they are family and it’s all real.
    He also said the Jill interview was awkward but fascinating but fascinating not in caps lol.

    10. He thanked all the ladies for their side ponies.

    11. He was asked what was it the Brandi said- he said it was the surrogacy.

    12.
    They asked what happened with Dwight. He said Dwight exposed his penile implant to Andy. Not something he wants to relive.
    13.He is single and dating but no one in particular. Everyone wants him to date Anderson or Jeff Lewis but they are just friends.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Wow, that is a lot of great information!!!!!!!!

      I agree with his all star cast. Love em or hate em, they do provide the most “entertainment.”

      So IT WAS THE SURROGACY!! But at the Morroccan dinner, Kyle said Its not about the surrogacy. Great stuff Jill!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Zuzy from Facebook gets all the credit for the info-she was there last night and shared this as soon as she got home!!

      • Rebecca says:

        Kyle has no understanding of what anything is about. Delusional Airlines, ticket for one.

    • nyc mama says:

      Great info Jill. Thanks from me too. Glad to see he is open to answering questions and comes off personable.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Awesome! I know I’m total minority here, but I like Andy Cohen.
      I am so not shocked by his All Star cast, those are the “breakout” stars of each franchise (love ’em or hate ’em).

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I like him too. I love that he was so honest in this Q&A- even if his answers didn’t surprise me. I’m half way through his book and I’m finally starting to like it. It started off very slow!!

      • Powell says:

        Realhousewifeva I like Andy too but he gets on my nerves sometimes, especially at the reunion when he doesn’t ask the question we all want the answer to & he doesn’t hold some of the ladies to the fire.

      • Cathy Connor says:

        I think if he done the simplest thing and maybe mention or give Mazel to my sister we would like him a whole lot more lol !! Does his talk of marijuana all the time get on anyone elses nerves ?? He acts like such a pothead, does he think that makes him “cool ” ? Think it makes him seem like he is trying too hard JMO

        • Cathy Connor says:

          If he HAD done ooopps

        • melthehound says:

          Personally, I don’t think he could be cool in a freezer. If people like him though, who am I to judge? I know for certain I was done with his show when he (or bravo) was painting and dressing a turtle.

          • Cathy Connor says:

            Yea gotta agree with you Mel that was really dumb. His games are hit and miss as well. Dont you just see him on the playground gettin picked on and teased ..now thinkin hes a cool kid lol Cant take away his success in building a network and brand tho ..

            • melthehound says:

              I’m willing to bet, he got beat up or at least picked on quite a bit as a kid. I doubt he particularly cares what I think of him or his show, he’s laughing all the way to the bank.

    • Powell says:

      Thks JNNTJ & Zuzy. Great intel. HA! He shagged a ‘N Sync boy. Way to go Andy. He would have Tamra as an all star? Yuke. Wow the group asked some really good questions.

    • $25,000 says:

      Thanks for the awesome scoop Jill! This bit about Lauri bugs me because it makes it look like the person she comes after is Vicki. I think Vicki, as awful as she can be, is better than Tamra, Heather and Gretchen and I’d much rather see her be supported instead of kicked in the teeth by Lauri. I’m glad to know Andy wants to shore Vicki up as well. Hopefully he’ll figure out a way to do that soon.

  6. This is BS
    http://www.examiner.com/article/rhoa-star-kenya-moore-provides-proof-of-phaedra-s-lies

    Kenya is using Amazon’s ranking to say her video outsold Phaedras, but the ranking is updated continuously – it’s not cumulative sales.

    When Phaedra first released her video, it was near the top of the list just as Kenya’s was. It’s impossible to say which one did better from the amazon rankings.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Kenya was tweeting this right after the reunion- she thinks people are stupid!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Is there a way to look up cumulative sales?

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Seriously, why does she think we are so dumb? It’s like if I looked up Fifty Shades of Grey on Amazon today it’s not even in their top 10, and we all know that book was number 1 for months. Her video came out about 4 months after Phaedra’s so the comparative ranking means nothing at this point.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Well she did have me believing she was the first African American Miss USA !!

        • Contessa says:

          Had me fooled as well. What a crock. Porsha shut her up fast with her research for the truth. Kenya’s explanation (I think on twitter) is the degree of color.

  7. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Good morning everyone…
    I loved the blogs and the photo recaps this morning. Stars I swear if RHOC was 1/100 as entertaining as you blog, I would probably be able to watch it. Sadly, I think the only two redeeming things about the show are…your blog…and that Brianna’s baby is cute.

  8. plainviewsue says:

    So I got a tweet back from Slade Stinky.

    Sharon‏@absurdtosublime: Ah, the original mean girl @sladesmiley #RHOC
    Sue Cohen‏@plainviewsue: @absurdtosublime @SladeSmiley Isn’t that the truth. Always was a dirtbag. Works an hour a day. How exhausting for him.
    Slade Smiley‏@SladeSmiley: @plainviewsue @absurdtosublime I love getting dumb tweets.. do some more..

    Which you know I did!!! I just thought it was disgusting for that POS to go on the radio to refer to Vicki as looking now like Mickey Rourke. Of course he didn’t say its Vicky, but come on. He does a one hour radio show & now he’s king of the world.

    I tweeted him back asking if that pay check will go to his beautiful son.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      He is the worst!!!!

    • realhousewifeva says:

      He’s the worst House Husband…do any of the others insult the other ladies as much as him? Always putting down their looks, like he’s some big catch? Doesn’t he have a son who is dying and has been in the hospital for months fighting for his life? Shouldn’t he have bigger priorities here?

      BTW, please tweet him and Gretchen that we know he doesn’t even have that stupid show anymore. It’s been dropped and they are looking for a new place for it.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Oh SNAP rh!!! Was his show really dropped???

        • realhousewifeva says:

          Yes, I believe they completely changed the whole station, from what I read. He’s look for a ‘home for it’ lol

      • melthehound says:

        I don’t think any of the others talk about looks, especially what the women are born with. He is WAY too obsessed with the appearance of Vicki’s face.

      • Cathy Connor says:

        I must say when Lynn and I met him He was very sweet to her and stood talking to her for awhile , posed for a pic and I think he offered to buy her a drink..( She didnt drink ) Certainly doesnt excuse his bad talk of any ladys looks just addin my two cents…

      • $25,000 says:

        Not sure why they’d drop a successful show…

        I think Gretchen even said it was the top rated show on that station. Of course, Gretchen’s never struck me as a credible source.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I’m not a Vicki fan but that is just slithering-on-his-scaly-belly mean, an insult to everyone involved. What a nasty jerk.

    • Cathy Connor says:

      you go Sue !! You always take these Bravoletrites to task Love It !!!! your a rockstar and they sure do answer you .Keep up the good work someones gotta keep them in line….

      • plainviewsue says:

        Thanx Cathy! Until they block u!!! A lot of people tweeted him after his tweet. I just think he’s such a wanna be star & I look at him & just think slimey!

        I’m glad your wonderful sister got to meet him, though, & he was nice to her.

        Lydia (the new HW) wrote in her blog that when she met Slade he was nice, but was disgusted with what he said in his radio show.

  9. BB says:

    Great recap Stars. Much more entertaining that the actual show. Season 2 Heather Dubrow reminds me of Season 1 Adrienne Maloof. They both think they are better than their husbands, and they both tried to come off as the “reasonable” peacemakers among the women. Adrienne didn’t quite pull it off and neither is Heather so far. I can see right through her “sincerity.” Heather may have also gone to the Camille Grammer school of reputation repair and damage control, but we all know how that turned out in the end, don’t we. The real person always shows up eventually.

    • BB says:

      Oh, and of course, Boston, you rock with your photocaps. And thanks Lysette for your DWTS recap. I caught the end and saw Lisa dance. You could tell she was barely making it through. I voted for her, but hope she pulls out if she can’t give it her all and gives someone else a chance. It’s obvious she’s not going to win the whole thing.

    • missusmc says:

      I think Heather differs from Adrienne in that this is her way of doing something other than being a stay at home mom, which is a role I don’t think she particularly enjoys. Staying at home is definitely not for everyone, and Heather needs to not always be home. Terry thinks more like Jim B. about gender roles, and I think that’s where their conflict is. That’s why I think we’ll see her lighten up later this season, because she will be branching out outside the home. I think this show is “her thing,” and Terry is a bit of a thunder stealer when the cameras are around, and she’s annoyed by that. But I do think they really do care for each other, which I never got from Paul and Adrienne.

      • Orson says:

        It’s Heather’s own fault she’s a SAHM. Her hubby is a doctor and probably tried to explain to her the difference between a uterus and a clown car, but she wouldn’t listen.

    • Cathy Connor says:

      BB Do you know if Deadliest Catch season begins tonite or is it reruns to catch us up ?? Its a great show I enjoy it . My sister always watched it too

  10. iceNfire says:

    Good Morning – I haven’t read yet but I’m just gonna start talking, sry if this had already been said but if I do’t get this out I’m going to explode! RHOOC Completely rewrote history last night when Tamra said she knew Icky had a lot on her plate with the divorce and all and maybe she wasn’t being a good friend by being there for her. Icky immediately jumps on board and says no, Tamara you weren’t…….The way I remember it and what I saw on tv was that Icky was too busy with Brooks to be bothered with Tamara or even her kids. And to top it off Heather Tells a Tamara that she get a do-over and this time she doesn’t have to make the correct and responsible choice this time instead she can show herself to be a real friend. huh? Isn’t a real friend the one that holds you to correct and responsible decisions?

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I didn’t watch the show, but when Tamra was going through her divorce and issues, Vicki was always there for her and even said on that season’s reunion that she would always be on Tamra’s side and have her back…and this is after Tamra was treating her like total sh*t b/c of her issues with Simon and him not wanting her to be friends with Vicki. It’s none of Tamra’s business who Vicki wants to date (and Tamra even liked him at first, even letting him touch her boob) but she had no right to run to briana to b*tch about Vicki.
      I don’t even like Vicki, but she really was “ride or die’ with Tamra through all of tamra’s crappiness, but Tamra is an awful ‘friend’.
      So basically, Tamra sucks.

      • iceNfire says:

        imo – They both suck. It’s the changing of their story that makes me mad. Last season Icky had no time for anyone but Brooks and Tamara did have her back while trying to warn her about Brooks. If everyone in Icky’s life are saying the same things about Brooks and Icky chooses to ignore the red flags and complain that nobody has her back then let her go do as she pleases but do not try to change the story.

        • Catseye says:

          I agree that they were coming out of a place of love, in warning her about Brooks, which is a LOT more than some jealous women would even do. But talking sh!t about her, behind her back–in front of her face, like only a very MEAN spirited person does, regarding her plastic surgery, was really hateful.

        • pat says:

          I gotta agree, Ice, they both suck, in different ways. Vicki is delusional & crazy…and fake. Tamra is a first-class b!tch. I haven’t watched last night’s episode yet, but it’s going to be fun to see Tamra slowly realize she replaced one controlling man for another.

  11. I Need A Life! says:

    Does anyone know when the Mob Wives reunion is airing? Wonder if there will be a season 4. I was really bored with the show and cast this year. I don’t care if Carla returns. She was a snooze. I could care less if Love is ever on television again. Who walks into a party with a (fake) cast on their hand knowing you’re ready for a fight? That series is over for me. Ciao.

    • nyc mama says:

      It is going to air in 2 weeks with Dr. Drew as moderator.

      She apparently didn’t have a cast. She had an ace bandage. She tweeted this:

      Love MajewskiVH1‏@LoveMajewski1
      I never had a cast it was a soft ace bandage like covering cuz I had broken knuckles n was having surgery in the am

      I don’t know anyone who would fight with broken knuckles but then again I don’t associate with anyone who would get into fights period or who behaves like she does.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I also glad I don’t know people who go around punching walls.

      • melthehound says:

        Such a lady……

        • nyc mama says:

          Yes, all refined, good ladies shoot, poison, stab, punch and try annihilate their friends and those they love. She’s the salt of the earth. 😉

          • melthehound says:

            I quit watching that show. I got tired of all the go to war bullshit and I could easily recite the dialog… “Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep Beeeeep Beep Beeeeeeeeeeeeep”

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Well, one thing you won’t be hearing again is….someone screeching “JUNIOR”

  12. L.A. Chica says:

    Good morning! I’ve been missing you all, but life is a little crazy these days. Love the blogs, and thank you especially to Stars99 for taking one for the team. Those OCers sound wretched and miserable to watch.

    And Stars, I’m not over BH yet, either. While watching the “lost footage” I recognized Kyle parking on a particular stretch of Wilshire Blvd when she took Lisa to her first mammogram. Here is the doctor Resnick she saw:

    http://www.womansbreastcenter.com/our_staff.html

    He made me smile when he told Lisa, “Please don’t make me blush.” lol

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Hey Chica!

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Hey Jill! Great to see you, how are you?

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I’m good thanks! What’s going on with you? Busy with work or busy with life? Or both?

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Both. Basically I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off, only not so gruesome. 😯 It’s tax time! And I’m house hunting, which is a whole lot more fun than filing tax returns.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              House hunting is fun…much better than taxes!! Good luck on the hunt!!

              • L.A. Chica says:

                Thanks! In this market I’m gonna need all the luck I can get. 🙂

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Keep me posted!!
                  We are finally getting our taxes done tomorrow-we usually get them done in Feb. but my husband has been working so much there was no time. Fine with me though- the quicker we get our money the quicker it seems to go!!!

                • djprincessc says:

                  LA Chica, good luck on finding a house in this market! I’m a realtor and its super competitive right now, things have changed so much! 🙂

  13. nyc mama says:

    Well, it looks like Brandi made it to #1 on the NYTimes bestseller list. Leann and Eddie must be reeling.

    BrandiGlanville: Twitter Notice the New cover? #1 New York Times BESTSELLER!!! Love u people!!! Still pinching myself!

    • Cusi77 says:

      Wow! A Bestseller! Good for Brandi!!! (Fortunately, she did not get there thanks to me!)

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I helped!!
        How are you doing Cusi?? Hope you are well!!

        • nyc mama says:

          LOL. Was it worth the read. Everyone seems to have enjoyed just wondering what your take is. From what I have seen it may be a good, fast, easy summer read.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I should have waited until the price dropped b/c I read it in about 2 hrs. Not because it was a real page turner-it was just one of those quick short books. There wasn’t much to it. A rejuvenated vagina, DUI, a relationship with a rich dude, friends who aren’t really friends and slashed motorcycle tires. I kind of got the feeling that although she is trying to move on from her marriage she still wants her ex to want her.

          • pat says:

            nyc it was an awesome read!! Definitely a perfect summer beach book.

          • plainviewsue says:

            I loved it. Very quick read. But I felt I got to really know Brandi better & understand her.

          • realhousewifeva says:

            I thought it was a fun, entertaining read, and yes, very quick.

    Good Morning everyone!

    Thanks for the Blogs, Ladies! Boston’s captions cracked me up!!!! Haa!

  15. IndianaHousewife says:

    Hello, I haven’t posted for quite a while but wanted to share. I have always secretly liked Kyle. I think it was when she first started getting blasted that I stopped posting much. Well then this year I kinda of came around to many people’s opinion of her here thinking that she really wasn’t a good friend.

    Well here is the problem for me….if Lisa has not gone for a mamo ever, and is scared about getting the results, why would she take Kyle whom she doesn’t trust? I know it is all set-up, etc. but really if you are going for this type of test don’t you take either your sensible friend (Yolanda) who can remember what the Dr. discusses,etc. or you take your fun, upbeat friend (Brandi) to distract you while waiting.

    Why oh why do you take Kyle, whom you do not trust and have said you are over? I know they are cordial to each other but this seems to be pushing it to me.

    • melthehound says:

      In past seasons, I’ve always been able to separate Kyle the mom (who I liked) from Kyle the TV character (who I didn’t like). This season, she was just too underhanded for my liking and the TV character (with Swine Resnick at her side) won out and she can leave the show now.

      • IndianaHousewife says:

        I agree, I like Kyle as a mom and she got points for supporting Faye when it would be easy to shrug it off. She loses point for being BFF”s with Faye in the first place though.

        So why would Lisa share something this personal with Kyle at this point in their relationship? Makes me not care so much for Lisa now either, I think she is just as fake. I has me wondering if this is one of those “chess” moments Kyle was talking about in the S2 reunion and what the benefit to Lisa would be?

        Maybe I think about this too much??

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          It makes me think that they have a “show” relationship and a “real life” relationship.

        • plainviewsue says:

          Maybe I’m just naive, but I think it was Kyle insisting that she go for the mamogram.
          I loved that scene, cos it did show deep down the two women had a deep friendship at one time.

          I have a friend like Lisa, who refuses to have a mamogram. I fight with her, argue with her, tell her I’ll go with her. But she refuses. Maybe if Bravo sends cameras, I can get her to go!

          • nyc mama says:

            I liked that scene also. It was the first time in long time I felt anything positive toward Kyle and it reminded me of how funt they were together. I think they had a very strong relationship at one time but other things got in their way including Faye. You saw how angry and hurt Lisa was about both Faye and the fact that she felt that they dropped her after her house was sold and how smug Kyle was with her responses which could have been a defense mechanism but I don’t know. Kyle has a very strong defense of Faye which makes me wonder why we see her like that only with her and no one else.

            We also saw Lisa’s reaction when Mauricio said “he would love to work with them again but he didn’t know they were looking to buy/sell” and Lisa said very clearly she did not want to. It didn’t even dawn on him that they were referring to the friendship, not the business relationship until Andy clarified it. He can’t see beyond his own nose and I don’t think he has any real friends outside of Kyle’s although I thought at one time he and Ken did and they played tennis together. Why that couldn’t remain even if the women had problems makes no sense to me.

            I think ;ast year’s reunion and this year Kyle’s defense of Adrienne and Faye and not Lisa did a lot of damage to their friendship that Kyle just can’t see.

            • iceNfire says:

              On last nights Lost Footage when Kyle was saying that Faye doesn’t like Brandi and Brandi said she doesn’t even know Faye, Lisa asked a couple times ‘why was Faye at that dinner in your house?’ And Kyle literally turned her back to Lisa. There was no way she was gonna answer that question.

              • nyc mama says:

                Yep, she deflected. I was sorry that no one took Kyle to task for that dinner and went deeper. If Faye doesn’t know Brandi then the only reason she wouldn’t like her is from what Kyle and Kim told her – their distorted version of game night like she told Lisa, etc. Also, why would Kyle invite anyone to a dinner and let them get attacked without stopping it or saying something? Kyle is as culpable as Faye for that night and then at the reunion she tried to pretend Brandi wasn’t upset with her and when Brandi said she was, she didn’t apologize, only continued to deflect, justify, excuse, never accepting responsibility. Even Lisa tried to shut Taylor up at the tea party and she was no fan of Adrienne but she didn’t want anyone to feel attacked at her home.

                Kyle is a pos.

        • iceNfire says:

          LoL at “secretly liked Kyle” I hope that isn’t the reason you haven’t been posting much. I’m pretty sure this scene was shot before Lisa and Brandi became close. Lisa did say at the time that she did like kyle and enjoyed her company – iirc 🙂

          • IndianaHousewife says:

            No, I went “underground” when there were rumors of people being contacted at work,etc it seemed for a while there people were just going crazy on the internet blogs. It seemed as though what I considered to be a fun hobby (reading the blogs) turned not so nice, so I just took a break. It’s all good now 🙂

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            It was shot after Kim’s trip to Ojai

        • melthehound says:

          Maybe I think about this too much??
          ^^^^^^^^^^^^
          Whatever it pleases you to think about 😉

          Kyle does a lot of playing both sides against the middle and then complaining that she doesn’t want to be in the middle of things. For someone who doesn’t want to be in the middle, she is sure there an awful lot. Lisa is no fool. I’m sure she’s well aware and may even use the knowledge to her benefit, that Kyle can’t pick a side, when confronted to do so. It could be one of those chess moments. One thing I do know, my mother use to drive herself to those appointments (but without a camera crew following behind).

          I don’t know when that scene was actually filmed though and honestly, I think I would have rather seen that scene on the regular show than some of the other crap we were shown. It would certainly serve the viewing public (as if Bravo actually cares) to see a few well placed PSAs like this mixed amongst all the drama. At the end of the day, I don’t believe that anything on these shows happens in the order we are shown.

          • nyc mama says:

            I agree and I think we have seen that is true many times. Bravo tries to manipulate and it isn’t always successful.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            I so agree with you, MTH, especially about the lost PSA opportunity.

            As for driving to a mammogram, I drive myself twice a year. It sounded to me like this episode was shot just after the Ojai trip, and Lisa was strongly resisting going. Kyle was pushing her to do it, and good for her! It’s what a good friend does; it’s only too bad that Kyle needs so much work on figuring out other basic good friend behavior.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            As for Kyle’s personality and handling of her friendships: If it hadn’t been for the cameras; Kyle might still be enjoying successfully being a pleaser. Telling everyone what they want to hear, etc. She had everyone fooled for a lil bit…but it caught up to her. She is getting better at being upfront with people. It’s going to be a slow process for her, as she is programmed to please whomever she finds herself with. Maybe Big Kathy gave her positive reinforcement for this type of behavior, which for the most part is kinda harmless. At least until you’re found out. Not harmless on a reality show, I have to add.

            • pat says:

              If I had to guess, I would now say that Kyle probably DID say to Camille “why would Bravo want to film you in Hawaii without Kelsey there?” But she said it as a joke. Kyle’s jokes often have a negative bite to them. They’re often thinly veiled insults. Like walking into Lisa’s party, looking at the roses shaped like a heart and saying “what is this Valentines Day?”

          • Catseye says:

            Yes. I agree about the PSA stuff. And Bravo’s manipulation. I noticed the background last nite of a stucco wall with some type of plant/vine growing, while Heather and somebody I can’t remember discussing something–it’s the same background when Yolanda was inviting Kyle to go to Paris, it stood out to me, because Yolanda’s hair bun was on the opposite side, during the rest of the party.

        • Powell says:

          I wouldn’t have FayeK as a friend but if Kyle wants her as a friend ok, but just because FayeK is her friend & likes to “speak her mind” about something she only knows 2nd hand from Kyle. Kyle invited all these ladies over to her house & she let FayeK bulldoze over Brandi & Lisa when Lisa tried to defend Brandi. Yes Brandi was wrong, wrong, wrong. But if it was my party & my friend went after my guests regarding info she got 2nd hand I would not have allowed it. I would have told FayeK tgat she’s my friend but she won’t go after my guests & if she can’t reign herself in then maybe she should go home. Then again her,BFF FayeK insults her hostess at her Anniversary party. Both times Kyle sat back & let FayeK run w/it. It looked like Kyle does what FayeK accused Lisa of doing. Wryling FayeK up to do her dirty work. FayeK used the chess analogy as Kyle did S2 reunion. All this time Kyle is supposedly trying & trying every way she knows how to win Lisa’s friendship back. Kyle did nothing but push Lisa away as a friend.

          • nyc mama says:

            I agree 100%. None of my friends would disrespect me by insulting an invited guest in my home and if they did I would shut it down immediately not sit there silently and allow it to go on for as long as Kyle did. Even worse was when Faye said to Kyle “sorry”, her response was “I’m not mad at you”. Well I would have been for a) insulting my guests and b) ruining my dinner.

            Kyle is a phoney. She also didn’t shut her down at Lisa’s after she insulted Brandi (again) and Lisa, who she told she would try harder to back, inserting herself in things that were none of her business.

      • Buttercream says:

        Hello Everybody!
        I agree with you Mel – Kyle was great when she wrote her book and stayed off the Dim Kim drunk sister story line .. she was not a like able this season!~

        • pat says:

          “…Dim Kim drunk sister…” too funny…and I was craving Chinese dim sim after reading that. 🙂

    • nyc mama says:

      I think that might have been filmed early in the season when Lisa was still open to trying to rebuild their relationship after last year and there was still the possibility of trusting her again but before she saw and heard the things that Kyle continued to say about her.

      • nyc mama says:

        Now that I think about it they discussed Ojai as if they just got back so when was that in the timeline of the season? Kim was still loving Yolanda, Adrienne was still part of the group and Yolanda was still trying to figure things out.

        • melthehound says:

          That was near the beginning of the season before the big secret was (not) revealed.

          • nyc mama says:

            Yep, before the lines were drawn in the sand. So it makes sense that Lisa was still open to trusting Kyle.

            • nyc mama says:

              Or better put, open to seeing if they could repair their relationship. But even in Ojai we saw Kyle making fun of Lisa in front of all the others and showed her pleasure when she saw the the room that Lisa was going to have.

              • melthehound says:

                That’s the Kyle I’ve never liked. I didn’t see the trip because at the time I had completely sworn off of all things Bravo (but somehow, got sucked back in 😉 ).

                • nyc mama says:

                  Ditto. We saw her do this many times and then feign ignorance and innocence. I find it hard to believe she can’t see her own behavior after watching these episodes but I guess even if she does she would never admit to it.

                  To watch her continue to defend and justify Faye’s and her own behavior at her dinner party at the reunion told me all I needed to know about her.

      • Rebecca says:

        Lisa said her a-ha moment was at Kyle’s dinner party when TMCFR was blasting Brandi about things only Kyle would have told her. I can’t remember if it was a talking head or her blog.

        • melthehound says:

          Checkmate. It’s possible (putting aside timeline manipulation) that Swine Resnik heard those things on the reunion show though, I don’t doubt, that Kyle discussed all that stuff with her bestie, Before the show. Who knows? I don’t.

          • Rebecca says:

            Reunion was not discussed at the dinner. It was all current topics that we watched Kyle and TMCFR chat about at lunch.

            • melthehound says:

              I didn’t suggest that it was openly discussed anywhere…. A simple phone call on the way home from the s2 reunion would be all it took.

    • $25,000 says:

      I think it was probably Kyle who was pushing Lisa to do it and promised to go along with her for support. Kyle has been wanting to get back in LIsa’s good graces. This also could have been inspired by a producer.

    • Powell says:

      Lisa was trying to move on in their relationship so I think she considered Kyle a friend. Also we don’t know when that was shot. I would guess in the beginning when Lisa considered them friends & not after Kyle had her diner party & FayeK put her “dick(penis) on the table” as Brandi would say. Lisa was beginning not to trust Kyle because it seemed Kyle was using FayeK as a set up.

  16. Lulu says:

    Good Afternoon everyone!!! Another beautiful day! I haven’t had the chance to watch OC yet. Thankfully Bravo has it on demand. Just another fun I’m not going to bed I will scream and cry type of night *sigh* and #2 is on the way?!?!?!? 😉

    Anyone notice how over the years Gretchen’s face has changed? She definitely doesn’t have her momma’s genes. Cause that is one woman who time is not kind to. No matter how much botox, fillings, things pulled never will look youthful or pretty.

    Vicki sorry to say reminds me of the boy in that movie with Cher called “Mask.” There is just something so unnatural about the shape and way her face moves. I’d ask for a refund if I were her.

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi Lulu – I had that bedtime problem with my 1st born. I didn’t know that I was suppose to put baby in crib and walk away…I would rock/nurse him to sleep. There is a great book out there that tells how to correct this problem in 3 nights but I don’t remember the title or name of doctor that wrote it. He compared rocking/feeding/anytricks to lull baby asleep before putting them down to someone taking away your own pillow once you are asleep…ofcourse you are gonna wake up. Does anyone know which book I’m referring to?

    • princesspindy says:

      I can remember when I was preggers and my son who had always slept thru the night decided he didn’t want to go to sleep. My friend with 6 kids told me, “Put him in the crib after your night time routine, say good night and close the door.” I did it and he was crying!!! and I called her and she said, “don’t you dare open the door.” Well, it only took 2 or three nights, I went outside so I couldn’t hear it. But he went right to sleep after that. It was horrible and I hated it but I figured with 6 kids she knew what she was talking about. And she did.

      • iceNfire says:

        Hi PPindy – Yes that is the method written in the book I was talking about. I took a long shower instead of going outside. It also helps to vacuum b/c the noise quiets baby and older kids know they are not louder than vacuum.

      • Lulu says:

        Thank you ladies! yes at 7pm prompt into bed door closed. Problem is despite a gate door opens and its “MOMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” “DAAAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!” Then the screaming. Pretty much drowns out anything you are trying to watch on tv or even having a normal conversation. This has been pretty much going on for the past month. My DS is too stubborn to give in. 😦

      • trudie says:

        My second child did that and I was a mess. Every night, my husband would make me a gin and tonic and I would take a jacuzzi, read a book and drink my G & T, while he put her in her crib and listened to her cry. By the time my jacuzzi was over, she would be asleep. And, as others have said, it only took a couple of days for her to get the hang of it.

  17. melthehound says:

    Stars 😀 Taking no prisoners. While waiting for the lost footage of BH (what a crapfest that was, and yes, that would be my official recap), I had the misfortune of hearing that asshat talk shit about Vicki. Hell, I’ve see 5 episodes total out of the 8 seasons and even I know who he was talking about (because I read the blogs here 😉 ). Great job Stars.

  19. mrs peabody says:

    I watched the Atlanta ladies reunion last night and no question about it Kenya is NUTS! I did like she had no response for what Porsha said about the other lady being the first black miss USA (or whichever). Surprising Kenya didn’t have her facts right about something she was in.

    • pat says:

      Kenya tweeted later that she never said she was the 1st African American Miss USA. She said she was the 2nd, but that she was the “first brown” Miss USA. I suppose in reference to that the first black Miss USA was very light skinned? She also has Native American ancestry. I dunno.

      • SoutheastVA says:

        Kenya implying that she was the 1st “brown” Miss USA was her attempt to make everyone think that she was the 1st African-American Miss USA. She never acknowledged or mentione the true first which happened in 1990. She’s sneaky and crazy.

        • Contessa says:

          Kenya finally explained this on her twitter, with the disctinction of Carole Gist being lighter skinned and she is darker skinned. I have no doubt Ms. Gist would be highly insulted at Kenya’s implication of being the first brown skinned woman to take the title. Kenya plays at words and lies – she is a pos and Kandi should have grabbed that fan and tossed it behind her – that would have been brilliant. I don’t condone violence but it would have been funnier if Kandi grabbed the fan and flicked it next to Kenya’s face and whacked her at the same time. That fan would have had so much makeup on it, you could take it off with a trowel.

        • Powell says:

          I thought that is what she meant. Whatever Kenya. :/

  23. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I’m probably the only one who finds this strange-but ya never know.
    Yolanda is 48-Brandi is 40. Why does Yolanda talk about her as if she is a child? Offering to buy her shoes if she behaves herself? Seriously? She is not young enough to be her daughter-the are age peers-both mothers-both grown women. It seems so odd to see a grown woman treat another grown woman like a child.

    • nyc mama says:

      I thinks she does it because Brandi is not as well off as the other ladies and she is able to do something nice for a friend. Brandi admired those shoes and Yolanda knew she couldn’t afford them and Yoland could. She also knows that Brandi shoots from the hip and she and Lisa seem to want to try to get her to think more before she speaks. Friends try to help friends and do things for them out of kindness and caring and I see both as acts of friendship not treating her as child.

      • Jill...no not That Jill says:

        nyc-I’m all for friends helping friends and women supporting women. This is just something different.

        • nyc mama says:

          I can see how you would feel/think that but I really do think it was just Yolanda’s way of doing something nice and perhaps it’s because she saw Mauricio do something simiar for Kim when they were shopping.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Yeah!! Mo did something nice for Kim!! Yo was just being nice, too! I think if she said it, cause I don’t remember,…but I don’t doubt it, but if she said “be good’…i think it might have been a bit “tongue in cheek”? perhaps? If Yo was my friend I would be all “ga ga goo goo…baby needs new shoes, a new bag…chardonnay…a horsey.”

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              It Mauricio told to Kim behave and she would get a bag I would be saying “that’s weird”!! I’m sorry but I ain’t being nobody’s baby for a pair of shoes-it’s like a charity case-but not. Just strange to me. And FYI Yolanda can not afford another horse!!’n

              • nyc mama says:

                LOL.I wish Mauricio would have bribed Kim to STFU and stop taking whatever meds she was on that week and if she did then he would have given her the bag. Sadly she got a bag even though she wasn’t even lucid and ruined another vacation for everyone else.

                I don’t think Yolanda really fools herself into thinking that she can bribe Brandi into behaving herself or thinks of her as a charity case. I think she knew that Brandi was getting those shoes once she saw them on her and how much Brandi loved them. False equvilences to compare those shoes to a horse that costs $300-400k per year x ? years. She probably bought several pairs of shoes for herself and got them for a song compared to what others pay. The pr he got just by showing those shoes on TV made up for whatever discount she got. . A few hundred dollars is not a big deal in that world. It is like others treating their friends to a dinner. They were not something that Brandi was going to splurge on but not a big deal to Yolanda. i believe that Yolanda values Brandi’s friendship even with Brandi’s faults. It didn’t strike me as strange.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                I’ll be a baby for those shoes. Not my usual Payless shoes, but those shoes, yes. and… Yes, it would be weird if Mo told Kim “behave” and she got a bag…but like I said, I think Yolanda was joking with Brandi regarding the “be good” thing. Yolanda has said she can’t afford another horse so no need to FYI me. I WAS KIDDING. IT WAS A JOKE. My attempt at humor. I’m afraid of horses anyway.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  I FYI’d you as a joke-I know that you about the horse!! I was kidding you back-I see that didn’t go over so well!!! (I’m afraid of horses too!!!)

                  • Catseye says:

                    As far as the 2nd horse is concerned, if ANYONE should be buying one it would be Mohammed!! It’s HIS daughter, he can obviously EASILY afford it. And I’m NOT kidding.

                    • nyc mama says:

                      But just because he can afford it doesn’t necessarily mean he should. 3 horses means he would be spending $1 million+ per year just for the care and upkeep of these horses. That’s a lot of money. Apparently she doesnt need it since she is doing well with just one and just because others have them doesn’t mean that they should.

                    • pat says:

                      I appreciate that Yolanda does appear to have some integrity in re how she spends $ on her children. She seems to have her own budget that she operates within. Trying to compete at an olympic level with horses is crazy expensive. One horse is literally 6 figures, and that is just the up-front cost of the horse.

                  Lainey the next time (if ever) that the shoe designer for Louis Viutton comes to my hotel room in Paris to bring me shoes he picked out especially for me then I’ll get you a pair too. 🙂

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    Oh so now that I said it was weird I don’t get shoes???? I take it back-it’s perfectly normal!!!!

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    the next time… lol… well, a girl can dream!

                  • Kansas Girl says:

                    I’d like those purple boots Yo tried on! I’ll be vewy, vewy good and not run my mouth (or keyboard).

                    • nyc mama says:

                      ok. noted for the next time they are in my suite in Paris and I’m shopping but there is one condition…we all have to wear them when we post. 🙂

                      Hey if we are going to dream then I’m going big….shoes and birkies for all!!

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I wouldn’t be a baby for those shoes…not that they are ugly shoes but they would look ridiculousness on me. I have short thick legs…it would have made them look like the body suit Phaedra wore in out video…and I think we all know…that wasn’t a good look.

                  • nyc mama says:

                    Well then, in my best soup nazi voice…NO SHOES FOR YOU! (But I’ll still give you a birkie.) 🙂

                    Quite frankly there are few that could pull off those shoes. They would look awful on anyone who doesn’t have her long, lean legs and body, but those black stilleto’s he pulled out for Yo would look just fine on anyone although walking in them would be a different story. Those are sittin’ shoes.

            • nyc mama says:

              I agree. I thought it was Yolanda’s attempt at humor too. I think that Yo saw how much Brandi loved those shoes and it was a no-brainer so she bought them.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                It’s not just about the shoes. It’s the way she treats her in general-the shoes were an example. She talks about Brandi like she is talking about someone who is so much younger-not a grown woman with children.

                • Catseye says:

                  I agree. I think Brandi is very immature too. I just hope she has enough wisdom by now to remember these acts of kindness.

                • nyc mama says:

                  I think Yolanda has her own way of expressing herself. We have seem all season that some viewers take offense to her style and others don’t. I don’t see her being condescending to Brandi but others do. It is a very European style. The only one that really matters is Brandi and she’s cool with it.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        nyc-completely off the subject-are you loving this weather?? Short sleeves and flip flops!!!

        • nyc mama says:

          YES! YES! YES! 🙂 What a difference a day makes but that said I don’t want to go directly from winter to summer but this is just perfect. We have a few more cooler days in our future but that’s ok. Good sleeping weather. 🙂
          Enjoy it Jill. We all deserve it after what seemed like a never ending winter.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            It really is hot like a summer day-80 degrees!! I was wearing boots 3 days ago!!! You enjoy too!!!

        • Powell says:

          OMG 89 in MD today! YES I’m lovin’ it. You all know I’m a hot weather kinda girl. But no shorts & flip flops yet. I’m cautious w
          /weather like this. They are talking weather changes below 50s again so I’ll hold off on the flip flops. 🙂

    • Annie Okie says:

      Yes it is odd to see a grown woman treat another grown woman like a child, like they all treat Kim, except for her dick sister. I’m reminded of Brandi wiping sauce off Kim’s face in Paris. It must be a BH thing.

    • RealhouseWifeva says:

      Brandi acts so much younger, IMO

  24. BB says:

    For those asking about my mom (and thank you for asking), she’s still in the ICU, being very well cared for. They are doing all kinds of tests and she’s getting lots of rest and TLC. It’s hard to believe it’s the same hospital. The care she’s getting now compared to the care she was getting in a regular unit is the difference between night and day. I intend to share my experiences and opinions with the “powers that be” after leaves the hospital. There is no reason for there to be such disparate treatment between regular hospital care and intensive care. I mean it was like stepping from hell into heaven. OK. Rant over.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Great news that she is being so well cared for now. Sucky that she wasn’t before!! Hope she gets the rest she needs and I hope you are taking care of yourself!! How is Jack doing??

      • BB says:

        Sorry, I took a nap right after I posted this. Jack is doing great. The little family of four (including the dog) is adjusting nicely. We’ll see what happens when daddy goes back to work next week. Lol.

    • nyc mama says:

      So glad to hear that BB. That helps not only your but you too. I learned the hard way that no all health care is created equal even in the same hospital.

      Best to you, your mom and Mr. Jack and his mommy.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      So glad she’s receiving such wonderful TLC!!! Praying for a quick recovery!

    • AZGirl says:

      Good news that your mom is getting the care she needs. Hopefully they will get her well and out of ICU.

    • TexasTart says:

      BB, thank you for the update on your mother. I’m glad her level of care has improved…maybe now she can improve! Praying she can be healed so she can get out of there and get to the important business of holding her great-grandson! Hugs to you, BB.

    • Catseye says:

      I noticed that same thing when I was in the hospital myself, 15yrs ago. Luckily I had my mother there to complain and things improved. I hope this ordeal is over for you guys soon.

    • Powell says:

      That’s good BB. I don’t know why it is like that at some hospitals. There shouldnt be any difference.

  25. TexasTart says:

    Stars – Have to remember to say how much I love your use of the word “dagnabit.” so I’ll say that first! (Was that a Yosemite Sam swear word? Someone tell me if I remember right?) I’m still craving onion rings…oh and that was my favorite part of the show was Vicki asking where’s the onion rings, lol. I didn’t get to see all of the OC last night, which is okay, but it’s nice for you to fill in the blanks for me. Actually your blog is far more entertaining than the show itself!!! 😀

    Lisette – I appreciate your blogging of DWTS. I was flipping channels back and forth anticipating whether or not Lisa could dance until NYCMama said Gleb tweeted she would dance last, which was helpful so I could focus on finding the Secrets Revealed on RHOBH – which by the way I don’t think there were any secrets revealed!!!!!

    So I did get to see Lisa and Gleb live at the end. I really wish they would not put Giggy on stage, he was on the ground and shaking at the intro. She did remarkably well considering, Gleb, as these professionals seem to do well to try to destract you from some of their partners faults. As I said last night; I really wish she would have exited DWTS for her healths’ sake. It’s unlikely she’s going to win the competition but you gotta give the woman kudos for taking it this far! She must have pulled it together for Gleb, I can’t figure why else put herself through all the misery. She does improve every week though, even when sick, I think that was her best so far. She is just juggling way too much stuff…and I mean she left the DWTS stage last week and they sent Gleb with her to NY for the Upronts so they could practice dancing for heaven’s sake and flown right back to practice more dancing, no sleep, just too much and developing an illness, no wonder she fainted – and on camera is not so great, but that is reality TV. I guess we will find out tonight if there will be another week for Queen Lisa.

    Boston – Glad you had time to come up with some of your art for us – I enjoy it!

  26. TexasTart says:

    Stars, I forgot to say Heckle and Jeckle, the cawwww cawwww, was too funny. Much more, just love the snark, don’t ever change how you recap the OC!

  27. Powell says:

    Contessa how is your knee? Diva how is Mr. Ford’s knee?

  28. Powell says:

    PrincessP how is your mom doing? And your control freak bro? 🙂

  29. majnon says:

    Boston, your words fit those pictures perfectly. Stars, I”m trying to resist watching the OC, because they are all horrible, but it’s like a drug or something.
    If I watch, “Heckle and Jeckle will forever keep me laughing. Lisette, thanks for the DWTS recap as well

    BB, congratulations on little baby Jack. As a grandmother myself, you are in for a real treat.

  30. AZGirl says:

    Powell, Jill, NYC Mama and all the other East Coast posters….enjoy today because some really bad ass cold weather is coming your way. We got hit yesterday with high winds and hail. Colorado got golf ball size hail. Hopefully this is the last storm of a very long winter for you all.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I saw that we were getting something-this weather today was too good to last!! Thanks for the warning!! Hope you didn’t get too much damage from the wind last night!!

      • AZGirl says:

        Just pool mess. But it was really crazy up north in Flag and Prescott. A lot of damage from wind and hail. Hopefully things will settle down before it reaches the east coast.

    • nyc mama says:

      Thanks! Like Jill I hope you didn’t get too much damage and aren’t too worse for the wear. They are calling for rain and Thursday it will be 20-30 degrees cooler but so far they haven’t predicted anything like you saw…at least not yet.

  31. pat says:

    Anyone watch the Arias trial today? I’m only catching recaps. Yet again, Jodi and her female atty are dressed in the same color. She seems to mirror her with the constant note taking as well.

    I feel a bit bad for the expert witness on the stand. She has devoted her life to good works, but in this case, she is so wrong. And she is taking a beating.

  32. TexasTart says:

    At DWTS, a beautiful duet with Andrea Bocelli and Jennifer Lopez with David Foster on piano. I didn’t notice Yolanda or any Lisa supporters there….I didn’t watch closely though. I won’t say who was booted because I assume west coast has yet to air.

    • nyc mama says:

      I only saw Ken, Pandora and Jason.

      • TexasTart says:

        and Giggy, lol. I saw them right after I posted. Do you think it’s a coinicidence of David Foster and Lisa on the same show or she had something to do with him being there. I wouldn’t know his connection to the singers…could be that too.

        • nyc mama says:

          He’s doing a lot of promotion for his new album with Andrea Bocelli so I think that has more to do with it than Lisa.

          • TexasTart says:

            I ask – you answer! Thank you! 🙂

          • Nancy says:

            You are right. David Foster usually produces Andrea Bocelli music but not always.

            • nyc mama says:

              This one he did. I only know he did this one because the promotions have been all over the place here and my BIL is an exec in the music industry and we were discussing Foster several weeks back and he mentioned the (then) upcoming album.

              • Nancy says:

                How fun for you. I’m a cellist here in LA so I used to do a of of studio work.
                I posted a video downthread. I really like and respect David.

                • Nancy says:

                  a lot

                • nyc mama says:

                  I love the cello! I am envious of those that have musical talent. Such a wonderful gift. Wish I could hear you play.

                  DH’s family are all musically inclined and some of my family but not me. I paint and draw and sculpt and do glassblowing but I am not musicial at all.

                  • Nancy says:

                    I’ll make you are deal…I’ll teach you the cello and you can teach me how to draw. lol
                    My cousin is a glass blower up in Seattle. He loves it.

                    • nyc mama says:

                      Deal!
                      Lots of wonderful glassblowers in Seattle. The land of Dale Chihuly. *sigh*

                      I have a place here where I go and work with some great people. One of the things I love about it is it’s a team sport. So many people.

                      i admire David Foster as well. He is an amazing talent.

                    • Nancy says:

                      nyc, Have you ever been to Italy to see the glass blowers? It was amazing.

                    • nyc mama says:

                      I have. I went with my parents when I was young and it planted the seed. Then I studied there during university and it is where I really started to get into it. Then I saw a Chihuly exhibit in Venice and then Jerusalem and haven’t looked back.

                    • Nancy says:

                      That’s were we saw it. (Venice) You are so lucky. I would love to see your pieces.

  33. TexasTart says:

    JNNTJ – Thank you bringing over the Zuzy post about Andy Cohen (upthread). I’m not on FB, so that was nice of you to bring it over for others to see…very interesting! 🙂

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Wasn’t it fun to read those little tidbits?? Zuzy was so nice to take such careful notes so she could share with us!!
      I just finished Andy’s book-the second half was all about the HWs… And JZ’s stalking dog!!! Very funny!!

  34. Nancy says:

    This one is pretty.

  35. nyc mama says:

    This is funny. Please Brandi NO SONG!!!!

    Bravotv‏@Bravotv18m
    So far we’re feeling a little worried about Darian. Do you think @Kandi will be able to turn him around? #KandiFactory

    Brandi Glanville‏@BrandiGlanville4m
    @Bravotv @Kandi #KandiFactory Yep she said she could teach even me to sing! @BravoAndy I’m going to Hot-lanta! 🙂

  36. TexasTart says:

    Anyone checking out the Kandi Factory?
    I just peeked away from basketball and left. I saw an article that Donna posted here…and was not able to verify if true, but rumor has it – via twitter posts from people who were on her show saying they didn’t get either compensation or a prize for a.competition she held. IDK… if true I would not watch.

    • Nancy says:

      We’re watching the LA Kings game.

      • TexasTart says:

        Hi Nancy, was watching women’s NCAA championship. CT Huskies ran away with the title over Louisville. Had Louisville won, it would have been too crazy that mens and womens champs would have been from the same university.

        • Nancy says:

          We don’t follow basketball and I’m not sure why as we are big sports fans.
          I just want the LA Kings to get to the playoffs. We won the Stanley Cup last year but
          it’s not showing this season sorry to say. They were on strike for the first 1/2 of the season so maybe that’s why.

        • nyc mama says:

          The CT ladies are amazing. I don’t follow them but friends and family in CT do. It is like their drug for them.

    • The “winner” from last year (she just did a pilot show) had his single pulled. As did Lawrence. I don’t think there is much of a prize. She picks 2 people, writes them a song, they get choreography, coaching, and to perform on national TV. I’m not sure if they are guaranteed that she’ll release their singe or not.

  37. Contessa says:

    Wow, I started to listen to it and began crying…it was one of my late Dad’s favorite songs and I had it played at my first wedding to late H. That song brings back so many memories for me. It is hauntingly beautiful and two men that I loved very much were really touched by this song.

    Thanks Nancy for posting this, as it is a favorite of mine. I also love Andrea Bocelli and have his cd’s in my car. I think he is phenomenal. I can’t remember the name of the song but they used it for the Bellagio opening or something like that.

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Contessa,
      It’s a very beautiful piece. I’m sorry if it brought up sad feelings for you. (((Contessa)))
      I have his CD’s and play them in my car all the time. I find him inspiring as he has overcome some pretty hard things in life and he doesn’t let them get to his happiness.

      How is your knee doing? Any better?

  38. Contessa says:

    I am on west coast time and I know this won’t be a spoiler, but Lisa V was sent home from Dancing with the Stars. She looked beautiful tonight!

    • Nancy says:

      I’m glad as she was pushing herself too much. She’s already a winner to many of us.

      • nyc mama says:

        Brava Ms. Vanderpump-Todd. She showed what a real trooper she was. I too am glad she went home. I wouldn’t want to see her health suffer any more than it already did and now maybe she can take some time off and get some much needed rest. Kudo’s to her for her effort.

    • It doesn’t air here for a while – how did you see it?

    • TexasTart says:

      So west coast was on hour later. She did look beautiful and was gracious…giving thanks to all of her “cast mates”. I doubt she could rave about her RHOBH cast mates as a whole!

      Applause for Lisa going where no HW had gone yet – I never could figure why she would do DWTS, but I think she said she considered it such an honor to be asked and couldn’t pass up the challenge. I’m sure she’s a better dancer now, lol, good thing Ken got that new hip 😉

      • Nancy says:

        LOL I’m sure Ken will be happy to have her home.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Yeah, its a victory in the sense that she was the first HW to be asked. Plus she didn’t go home first, God bless her! I’m proud of her.

  39. Kandi factory prize – they get their single released and their own music video. I thought it was a cute show. Very positive.

  40. princesspindy says:

    DWTS isn’t even on until 9pm, another hour, here on the West Coast………so kinda a spoiler, good thing I don’t watch.

  41. Contessa says:

    I am SO SORRY about the DWTS reveal, I have Direct TV and thought you guys had it on at the same time, but I basically saw it on the internet. Monday show comes on at 7 PM here in AZ and I thought this one did as well. Please again, my apologies.

    Nancy – knee is still painful and tomorrow is 3 weeks post op. I still take a percocet in the am to get moving and an 800 mg Ibuprophren at night. I can walk without the cane when I don’t have pain, but by evening I get uncomfortable, so I am making some strides. XXOO

    • princesspindy says:

      Contessa, I make sure I don’t come on the blog if it is a show that I am really into, lol. I haven’t been watching DWTS cuz I am really like The Voice!! When Project Runway is on or Top Chef, I have to work hard not to see spoilers, they are everywhere!! 🙂

    • No worries for me – I always google results (hangs head in shame). I have Direct TV but I didn’t realize I could get network shows early. Our shows don’t start until 8 pm (9 tonight) in WA. Except the cable channels which are 3 hours early.

    • Nancy says:

      You poor thing. I have had so many knee surgeries so I know what you are going through. I’m sure it would be ok to take another Percocet in the evening, don’t you
      think? When do you see your surgeon again?

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Sorry about your knee and that you are in pain 😦

      • Nancy says:

        Hi RR,
        How are you doing?

        • iceNfire says:

          I once ended up in “The Spoiler Boat” with otay….what a night That was! Everybody screaming so loud and furious my dreams weren’t pleasant that night…The old days… I Miss you Lynn

          • Nancy says:

            (((iceNfire))) I would go into therapy if I were you. lol

          • iceNfire says:

            Contessa – So sorry about your pain and So sorry I gave you ill advice regarding pain meds the other day..n/m me I’m not a pro just a chick that has been dealing with long term pain…so sry sending Prayer right now

            • Nancy says:

              iceNfire,
              What do you take for chronic pain?

              • iceNfire says:

                Nancy – I’m a walking pharmacy…I have them all (I think) but when pain reduces me to tears it is whatever pain *pretendpainkiller* and soma. I have learned that pain meds taken daily stop working so I have good days, bad days, and stay the hell away from me days

                • Nancy says:

                  Have you tired Neurontin? It helps me.

                  • iceNfire says:

                    I hate to sound like Kim Richards but ….is that the one that is yellow on one side and green on the other? idk I have a collection but I’m sure most have expired and need to be returned to pharmacy for disposal

                    • Nancy says:

                      The ones I take are orange so I’m not sure about yours. I agree that taking narcotics
                      for chronic pain is not the way to go. It’s not always fun but somehow you make it through it.

                    • iceNfire says:

                      Agree! Not fun but save the meds for when truly needed. I have witnessed doctors giving same meds to all patients in waiting room. Maybe doctors don’t realize we talk to each other while waiting. Do you think doctors get a cut of meds prescribed?

                    • Nancy says:

                      I sure hope not. The Pill Clinics around the country are really making it hard for
                      patients that really need the strong meds. Doctors are afraid to write the Rx’s.

                    • iceNfire says:

                      I really think that some (idk how to spell) unscruptulious doctors do have a stake in pharms. I’m out for the night Nancy Sweet Dreams all 🙂

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Hi Nancy, I am well. I had a nice day with my girls today but unfortunately…I dinged a car in a parking lot. As I was leaving a note the owner came up, he was very pleasant about it given that I didn’t take off and leave him hanging for it.

          Although the damage was minor…it happened to be near the gas tank which make me think they won’t be able to blow it out but will have to replace the panel…hopefully our premiums won’t go up to much. Thankfully, it wasn’t a luxury car, where even a tail light is is $350+

          • Nancy says:

            Hi RR,
            I’m glad you had a nice day with your little ones. Sorry about the car casino. At least
            he was cool about it. I don’t think your rates will go up just for that. Hang in there.
            xo
