Brandi Burned by Laser for Melasma Treatment and Other News by NoMoreDrama
Brandi Glanville tweeted a photo of her self without makeup, after insinuating that the Daily Mail had gotten some pictures. It turns out Brandi’s hand wasn’t the only part of her that was badly burned by lasers – she had a treatment to her face that also didn’t go well. Poor Brandi, she’s being treated for melasma – which is skin discoloration. It looks painful.
“doctor said he could get rid of my melasma it was to hard for my skin. Still healing, its been depressing
In other news, RadarOnline is reporting that all of the current Atlanta housewives will be back for another season, including NeNe Leakes. No news on whether or not Kim Zolciak will be returning to the show, but with the rating high after she left, I doubt they’d bother asking her back. Perhaps they want to get filming underway to capture the two weddings baby, and divorce drama.
Meanwhile on Married to Medicine – things don’t seem to be going well between Toya and Mariah.
Rachel Zoe Project by Amy
At Rachel’s house the intern Co brings clothes for Skyler. He wears Gucci and Burberry. Rodger says he doesn’t need these brand clothes because he will just grow out of them. Mandana and Rachel talk about her billboard. Rachel really doesn’t like the idea of being on a billboard. At Rachel’s office they talk about an upcoming Jockey shapewear shoot. Rodger goes shopping for finishing touches for his office with his assistant. Annnnnndd he’s still talking about how he doesn’t want an apartment in NYC. Ugh. His assistant agrees with Rachel that they should have an apartment.
Rachel and Mandana go look at the billboard. Rachel is embarrassed while Mandana takes a picture. Back at her office Rachel receives a letter from President Obama thanking her for participating in his campaign. Rachel then talks to Elle magazine about an upcoming shoot to demonstrate her style. Rodger is golfing and talks with his friend about how he wants another child. He mentions how Rachel is such a reluctant celebrity and that he should go see her billboard.
Rachel talks to her styling assistant Eileen about her story for the Elle fashion shoot. She says that the rules have seemed to change as far as fashion goes. Back at Rachel’s house she and Rodger are ready to go to the farmer’s market. Rachel is wearing a fur jacket. They talk about her billboard, Rachel says it was huge, like Godzilla or “Hong Kong” (she meant King Kong). She talks about how she likes being a stylist and feels comfortable doing that, not being such a celebrity. Rodger tells her she’s gorgeous and she should own it. Rachel agrees that she has to be visible, even though it makes her uncomfortable.
Eileen is pulling looks for Rachel’s Elle shoot. It will go on a model but “scream Rachel”. The day of the shoot everyone is organizing clothing for Rachel to pick from. Rachel spies a coat she loves and puts it on. Rachel talks about waist pocketbooks (upscale fanny packs.) Jo Zee suggests Rachel wear one of the options for a photo. Rachel wears a white outfit and talks about how awkward she feels when being photographed. She switches outfits with the model so she can wear the Chanel dress. She calls this “classy problems”. Skyler arrives to the photoshoot and Rachel takes pictures with him.
At Rachel’s office the girls try on some of the collection to wear while they go out. Rodger gets his hair braided by the girls during the commercial interlude. Back at Rachel’s house, she is looking at photographs of the apartment they looked at in NYC. She mentions that it could be a corporate apartment, and that if they have another kid they will need more space. Rachel says that if she wants the apartment, why can’t she just get it. Rodger says it’s a couple’s decision. Rachel then questions why Rodger can shoot down the idea if it’s 50-50. He says it has to be unanimous decision, like if Rachel wanted to get a dog. Rachel points out that she did get a dog. They compromise that Rachel can bring an extra suitcase every trip if they drop the apartment talk for now.
At the shapewear shoot for Jockey the interns are organizing the clothes for Rachel. They talk about how Rachel has a hard time speaking on camera. Rachel ends up at the wrong studio and now they are running late. They spend a minute to talk about her bangs. (it’s nice that they all recognize when things appear ridiculous) Rachel talks about she has problems with the teleprompter. She has a lot of problems with the script. But soon she gets into the rhythm. They take some photographs and then Rachel has to rush off.
It’s a Brad, Brad World by Johanna
At Brad and Gary’s new house, they walk in with all the boxes there and an interior designer. They walk through and it’s weird for them! But they both say it looks fabulous. Brad and Lindsay go into his office and joke around. They are so cute and happy together! Brad and Gary take Penelope in the backyard and she loves it too! I don’t even like dogs and I think it’s cute.
Brad and Hanna are out pulling for his new client, Coco Rocha. Brad is looking at a Zac Posen ball gown and he says Zac Posen is always a best dressed look. He wants to make sure what they pull is amazing because it’s going to be a red carpet look for the premiere of Coco’s new show The Face. He says he’s looking for attention seeking clothes so they pull lot of sheer items. There’s a Pucci and a Dior that Brad says is very ethereal. He says he doesn’t know if models care about not having lining. He says he needs Hanna to keep him in check because Coco makes him nervous and he doesn’t want to nerd out, he says he’s been cutting pictures of her out of magazines for like ten years.
Coco comes in and they hug. He tells her he’s a huge fan and recounts their first meeting when he freaked out. Coco says this is her first time working with a stylist. She says she doesn’t do anything super low cut and she doesn’t do sheer. Brad is freaking out because nearly everything on the rack is sheer! He recovers quickly and he says they can drop a lining into anything, so she just needs to give it a chance. He provides her with a slip for the time being. She tries on the Pucci gown and loves it. She also loves the Zac Posen look they pulled. Brad says it’s a very editoral high fashion look but he can tell it’s something that she feels like has been worn before. She tries on a J.Mendel look and doesn’t love it. I don’t love it either. They all love the Dior look that they pair with Louboutins. They wind up deciding on the Pucci for the premiere. Coco says she wished Brad lived in New York so Brad could live in her closet. How cute 🙂
Back at Brad’s office, Lindsay, Thomas and Brad are all there and they are preparing for his new client, Noot Seear, who most recently appeared in one of the Twilight movies. She will be modeling a pair of headphones that she helped design at a photo shoot. They arrive at the shoot and discuss the looks. They want to do six looks. He shows her a Herve Leger, a Vanessa Bruno that she says is kind of great and pair it with an Etro Skirt, she loves a Zimmerman dress he shows her. She says at her last shoot she styled herself and she’s so happy Brad is there because it’s much less scattered and his pulls have such a range. She wears the Zimmerman dress in one of the looks and loves it! She says his pulls are perfect. The next look is a Peplum top with jeans and Versace sunglasses. The next look is an awesome fringe jacket and a bathing suit from American Apparel paired with Louboutins. I have to say, everything looks great!! Next look is a the Vanessa Bruno turtle necl with the Etro skirt. Brad talks about how much he loves the high fashion world.
Noot loved the shoot (ugh I hate accidentally rhyming…) and so did Brad 🙂 In the filler scene, Gary and Brad are at Lindsay’s apartment and Brad goes through her closet. It’s cute, he tells her to get rid of everything with an elastic waist. I find Brad and Lindsay to be very well paired together and Gary is just funny in general. The show ends with Brad showing everyone pictures from the shoot with Noot Seear at his office. Hanna and Lindsay rave over Brad’s outfit and the pictures. They love the image that the campaign chose. It really does look amazing!!

Welcome back Castaways. Last week our two tribes of castaways merged. Cochran won the first individual immunity challenge. Corrine, who wanted to get rid of Sherri, then Pinky, was sent home. I am glad she is gone, I wish Pinky had left but if I’m being realistic here, he outplayed her. No denying that. It is now day 23 and after the prior night’s council they’re slapping themselves on the back for making it that far. TH Reynold talks about the counter alliance they have formed and how one of them went home last night. However, that’s one favorite gone and he’s still there. He and Eddie are shown discussing the fact that every woman they have aligned with, has been voted out. Well dumbass, that’s what happens when you make an alliance of four in a group of ten. He talks about the guys in his alliance and the fact he has an idol and truthfully friends, nothing this guy says makes any sense to me. I tried 3 times to catch it all, couldn’t do it. We see him talking to Andrea trying to find out what her game is. She says she is playing, she asks him the same question, same answer. Move to TH Malcom, with Corrine gone, he’s lost his closest ally in the game. Really Malcom? She was the only one who knew you had an idol and if she was so close, perhaps you should have done something to protect her. He took a hit but he still has the fans. He’s the only one now with an unknown idol. They thought they took out the rebel leader, cut off the head of the snake but, he is the true snake. They don’t know they missed yet. Whatever, Malcolm.
I guess since we choose to watch this show, we have to suffer through this… Pinky is talking to Sherri and he tells her that the first time he saw her on the beach, he thought “damn, she’s hot” 🙄 she says thank you. He tells her that his next target is Michael. The fans need to understand that when he tells them to do something, if they don’t do it, they will go home. He tells Sherri that once he assigns her a name, she’s in. He calls her Tenacity. Whatever, Pinky. Let’s not forget that she hates this guy and she has a pretty good poker face about it. He reveals the names of the others in the organization. She’s playing along and even ‘yes sirs’ him. She says she had no problem handling Shamar, Pinky is her Shamar on this tribe. I think I’m going to puke with this fake love affair as he’s lying next to her telling her he has no intention of voting her out of the game. As long as she isn’t stupid enough to tell anyone, especially Andrea or Dawn what she’s thinking, she may actually survive for a little while. She says after two more votes, he will be coming to her asking what she thinks. That’s her plan. We’ll see.
Time for a reward challenge. The object of this challenge is for members of one of two five person teams to get a ball past a defender into a net. They have to throw the ball as they are jumping off the dock into the water. First team to four points, wins reward. That is, they will be taken to a waterfall where they will rappel down the waterfall to a waiting picnic lunch. After the school yard pick, each team has one defender and four shooters. Purple: Erik, Reynold, Cochran, and Eddie, Michael is defending the goal. Orange: Dawn, Brenda, Andrea, and Pinky. Malcom is defending. Sherri is the odd girl out who didn’t get picked so she cannot get reward.
First to try and score, Eddie. Malcolm stops him from doing so. Eddie, Try not to throw the ball directly at Malcolm next time, mmmKay? I mean, right into his hands? Let’s see how Brenda does against Michael. Oh, she threw it over his head, into the net. See how easy that was Eddie? 1:0 orange. Now the ever observant Erik learned from the previous two and just tosses the ball over Malcolm’s reach. 1:1. Andrea vs Michael… 2:1 Orange. She learned too. Reynold vs Malcolm… Falls short just like much of his other time in this entire game. No score. Each time the teams switch, the defenders have to swim to a nearby platform and wait until it’s their turn again and then swim back. I just note that because I think somebody is going to get tired (not that it will matter). Dawn, the oldest woman in the challenge, is next, she misses. Not for lack of effort, just didn’t throw it high enough. Unlike Reynold who I don’t even think reached the target. Hell, even that pipsqueak Cochran managed to tie the score at 2:2. That’s twice he’s beaten Malcolm I will note. Pinky is next, he succeeds, 3:2. That completes the rotation and we start over. Orange needs one to win, purple needs two. Eddie is next and I guess he’s not a complete moron, he ties the score at 3:3. Brenda can win it or rather could have because she falls a few inches short and her ball bounces off of the net frame so, the score is still tied, 3:3 (they really love to stretch out these games for drama sake, don’t they?) Erik is next in the rotation for Purple, and he is successful. Purple wins reward. That’s Cochran, Eddie, Erik, Michael, and Reynold who added nothing to this win. I would say Michael too but there isn’t much you can do when you’re the monkey in the middle and the others are throwing the ball over your head.
So they get to their reward, I’ll show Cochran doing the rappel. He says, it’s way beyond anything he’s ever done and who would have thought that the guy who was afraid to take his shirt off in the last game, would be rappelling down a waterfall. He says his normal life and comfort zone are his apartment and twitter. He slipped a couple times but like the rest made it down unscathed. Now, you all know as well as I do, there are always attempted alliance formations at these reward picnics. This one happens to be all men. Men’s men. Strong men. Alpha Males. Reynold notes that the last time it was fans vs faves, it was the women who dominated the game (is that true?) (Yes -Pavarti and an all girl’s alliance took out the alpha males (starting with Ozzi) and also duped Erik into giving up his idol and going home. That earned him a spot in the Reality Hall of Shame – NMD) and this time, it should be the men (I’m sure they are counting on Malcolm to give them a 6:5 majority overall). This reward challenge scene ends with Cochran stating that if these people think he’s going to join in with their testosterone induced plan, they are delusional. He has no intention of doing any such thing.
Back at camp… They aren’t really sulking, they tried their best. TH Malcolm says he’s right where he needs to be. He needs numbers and he can scoop up the people at the bottom. Sherri and Dawn seem like the most likely candidates. He makes a pitch to them about somehow ending up with a solid 5. I didn’t really get it, I don’t know if they did either. It doesn’t really matter, just know he’s trying to make his move. Andrea and Eddie are making a little sub alliance of their own. He promises to tell her everything (but doesn’t)… Dumbass. There’s a saying that this old hound likes to use in situations like this and it’s shown to be true time and time again in these survivor seasons. Never trust a smiling cat.
It’s immunity challenge time. This one will test their ability to remain calm against the rising tide of the ocean, All of them are under that grid and as the tide rises it will eventually cover them with water trapping them under that grid. The one who can last the longest, wins. They all take their places and as the tide rises, pushing them closer to that grid, Pinky drops out first. Sherri is next followed by Erik. Dawn drops out of the challenge. Malcolm drops out next. I will note here just for the fun of it, this is the third time I’ve seen Cochran beat him. Michael is done next, five left to go. All at the same time almost Cochran, Eddie, and Reynold are out of the challenge. I will again note that Cochran, beat every single one of the other men, except Reynold, who he tied with in coming out from under that platform. That leaves Andrea and Brenda. These two are almost zoned out it seems not being affected by the water and certainly not panicking, yet. In the end, it is Brenda who pulls out the win. She must have gills because I don’t think she moved and this challenge was over an hour long as the tide rose. Good job Brenda. Guaranteed a top ten spot. That means she’s outlasted half the other players in the game as will the other nine who will be there with her. I don’t think she was in any danger of being voted out though.
Back at camp, the back stabbing begins. You know the drill. Malcolm is still trying to work this alliance thing and believes he has Dawn and Sherri on board. What he doesn’t know at the time, is that he’s become the target or so we are to believe. His target, is Andrea because she’s the true leader. Pinky is persona non grata to him and is just this complete joke (well then asshole, why don’t you people get rid of his pink manty wearing behind?) Somehow, Malcolm manages to convince Dawn to go along with him om whatever his plan is. He tells her that Reynold has an idol and her price for loyalty is to see the idol. So, Malcolm convinces Reynold to show it to her. When he does, he admonishes her not to screw him, or else. She doesn’t take kindly to such threats. Reynold still believes that the guys, all of them, are still on board with this guy’s alliance. At the end of all this back and fourth, Andrea believes She is the target and begs the others to go for the easy vote, Michael (back where we started). Eddie told her that her name was mentioned. Is Malcolm making a move here? Let’s find out because none of these discussions ever (almost) foreshadow the actual result.
The eleven of them are ushered in as usual, they take their seats and the Probsting begins. Michael is happy that it wasn’t a fan that went home last time and the favorites have begun to turn on each other. (Not so fast fella, they all hated Corrine anyway so it wasn’t a big loss to them to send her home.) He says that he is ready to be used in order to further himself in the game. I don’t know why some of these people aren’t playing to win, just get to the final three or whatever. Probst turns to Pinky and asks what he sees going on at camp. Pinky starts in with his strategy and his stealth r us bit and reveals that Sherri is now a member. Several times during council, Pinky goes back to his season, 22, and this is how the game was played then (you lost, Pinky). I won’t bore you with the 9 or 10 times he does this, just know that he did it, and it does play a factor in this tribal. I will also note that each time, I saw ten pairs of eyes roll. Sherri is proud to be a part of this cool kid’s club and tells the other fans, since they all wrote her name at one time or another, Paybacks Are A Bitch. Whatever 🙄 .. I think pretty soon these people are going to wipe that shit eating grin off of her face.
Eddie doesn’t think much of this corporation or whatever it is, he just knows that he, Reynold, and Michael are on the outside of it. He would rather play his own game than be somebody else’s puppet (Sherri) so, he isn’t really threatened by her little power play. Reynold is asked if he’s concerned about these operatives. He says, it’s eight operatives vs three new kids on the block and then, Probst brings up the possibility of an idol really throwing a wrench into that works. Reynold says yes it can happen if things are done at the right time. Pinky chimes in with if they think there is an idol, that person will be voted for. Michael, at this point is ready to play with someone who actually wants to play. Good lord, shoot me now. The discussion turns to Andrea and once again, the idea that not everyone can win. Solid alliances always make to the end (noted by Pinky). She says she was at the bottom of hers in her season but didn’t know it. This is all about who is going to make the big move first.
Now, All this while, we see Malcom looking nervous. At some point he gets an Ah Ha moment look on his face. Earlier, at camp in TH, he had said that this is his time to make a move. If he doesn’t then his side alliance will get picked off one by one and this is the reason he was seeking new recruits. Time to vote. We only see one vote during this process and that is Malcolm’s vote for Reynold.. Probst collects the votes and asks for an idol before reading them. Reynold, who believes he is in jeopardy given the discussion, gets up to play his idol. Malcolm stops him and tells him that all of that discussion was about him (Malcolm) and that they all voted for him. He convinces Reynold to give him the idol and Malcolm plays Reynold’s idol. Got that? I mean he Really twisted Reynold’s arm about it too. What a stupid shit. I mean I knew this guy was an idiot. Both times he pulled that idol it didn’t matter because he wasn’t in any trouble, at that time. OMG! What a moron! Did he ever watch this game? The others cannot believe what just happened and after the votes are read, neither can Reynold. Dude got played. The vote count, 6 for Michael (no one likes an ass kisser), 3 for Andrea, 1 for Reynold (Malcolm’s throwaway vote). We didn’t see the 11th vote. Michael’s parting shot? “You Turkeys” along with the half peace sign salute and a raspberry. He is the first member of the jury so now, at some point, these final three will have to pucker up and kiss his ass.
So… Does anyone really believe that Malcolm thought he was in trouble? I don’t. I think he played Reynold and all the rest of them. Now he is the only one in the game who knows where a hidden idol is, in his pocket.
(I think he panicked at the last second and hadn’t brought his idol with him. But I guess we’ll have to wait until the reunion to find out. He tweeted this as the show aired. NMD)
Next time my friends, Dawn turns on the waterworks again as she has yet, another breakdown. No hints as to who may be going home other than her but we’ll see. Watch it here at your leisure. Close ad and watch as free user – Start Video (you may have to press play as well). Download nothing and just close any pop up windows. Some players may ask you to enter a word or phrase to proceed. I’ve tried that, successfully, with no ill-affects that I could see. That is, I’m suggesting it’s safe to do so. Ask if you need help with that. You can also watch at CBS.COM (with the commercials and it is torture because you can’t skip them).
See you next week. Til then,
Peace, MTH aka WTFIJeff
