Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part Three by RamonaCoaster

Whew! Last installment of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. As soon as Kim leaves, Andy is bewildered at how easy everyone was on Kim (because going after her would have brought more ratings). He seems disappointed. Nene says she has told Kim a zillion times how she felt about her lying and making up excuses. Nene appreciated the text that Kim sent her. Kim sent her a text saying “It’s Kim. No bullshit. A little sad but I truly wish you well. And I’m so happy for you. Someday I know we will laugh about this. I will always care about you girl. XO.” Nene responded, “Thank you so much. Someday we can make this right. I wish you and your family the best.” Andy then said he couldn’t believe Kim wore her real hair and he wanted to pull it. Nice moment for you there Andy. Nene made a sly laugh.

Next are scenes of Kandi with Todd, their engagement ring, Todd and Riley bonding and convo about mama moving into the guest house. Todd was working behind the scenes on the show and when they went to the bone doctor during the trip to Africa, the doctor predicted the person Kandi was going to be with her is there now (meaning Todd). Kandi said she forgot about that scene. Andy sh-t stirrer that he is, asks why Nene is throwing shade on Kandi’s ring. Kandi said Nene asked her how much her ring is and she thought it was shallow. Nene asked if she said that and Kandi said that’s how it came off. Andy then asks Kandi a viewer question “Sex toys and God doesn’t mix, who does that?” Kandi thinks it is stupid to be offended that she prays and asks if it would be better if she prays in private. Another viewer asks if Todd moving in with Kandi is good for Riley. Kandi said they kept their relationship a secret because of the show. Cynthia pointed out that it is a deal breaker if Riley didn’t get along with Todd. It is great for Kandi that they do get along.

Now they get to scenes of Kenya pretending to have an intimate relationship with Walter, how everyone questioned their relationship, the breakup and the insinuation that Walter is gay. Andy mentioned a radio interview that Walter did where he said Kenya hired him to portray her boyfriend to get cast on the show. The producers have no knowledge or proof of this. Kenya refuted it and said she dated Walter prior to being offered a spot on the housewives show. Kenya feels she would not waste her time on a pretend relationship with Walter when she has a world wide stage to find a man. Nene recalls being in the airport going to Anguilla, watching Kenya and Walter together and asking if he really is her boyfriend. The lawyer said Kenya’s behavior was odd because she was flirting with every man while Kenya should be trying to get with Walter. Kenya said flirting with someone does not a whore make and she whips out that fan. Watch your eyeball, Kandi.

Andy asks Kenya if it is hypocritical to accuse the lawyer of assassinating Kenya’s character and she accuses Walter of being gay. Kenya says being gay is not an assassination of character and she never accused but questioned Walter’s sexuality. Andy then asks why she had a problem with Walter being at Kandi’s housewarming party. Kenya says he was intimidating her on purpose. Andy tells her that Kenya revealed a lot of personal details about Walter on the show and on her blog. Does Walter have a toupee? Kenya said behind closed doors Walter was a different person and they had gotten into a huge fight the last night of Anguilla because she had questioned if he was gay. Cynthia then asks if they had been intimate. Kenya then brings up the lawyer calling her a whore and that she didn’t have sex with Walter. Samantha from Sex and the City put it nicely – before you buy a car, you need to take it for a test drive. Kenya feels you can test the goods without going all the way. Kenya then brings up what the lawyer said about her “you can’t turn a whore into a housewife.” Kenya said she never called the lawyer a whore and that she is not the one who had unprotected sex with a convicted felon and lied about how many months she was pregnant. The lawyer thinks it’s not her place for her to say what Kenya has done. I don’t believe that for a second. The lawyer is running out of ammo. Then the line Kenya says with relish “Don’t come for me unless I send for you.” The lawyer says, “you didn’t send for me but I still came for you.”

Andy asks the lawyer if she regretted saying that. The lawyer said no. Andy then asks if anyone thinks the relationship between Kenya and Walter is genuine. Silence. Kenya says no one knows what is going on except for her and she lied to herself thinking Walter cared for her. Andy then mentions how Walter had asked Kandi out. Kandi clarifies the timeline – Walter had asked her out while he was supposedly dating Kenya and her friend told her that Walter was ready to settle down so it is possible that he would be getting serious with Kenya. Kenya then points out how Walter was a liar when he lied about his age. Kandi says Walter wants to defend himself against Kenya’s gay allegations and so he has been going on Twitter. Andy asks Kenya what is going on with her love life now. Kenya lets out this weird laugh, says she is happy then starts crying and then doesn’t want to talk about it. Nene says she has not met him but Kenya told her she has been seeing someone. Andy asks if it is Big Poppy. Kandi says she doesn’t know what happened between Kenya and Walter but she knows that she wants to settle down and have a family.

The househusbands/ fiancees have joined the show. Gregg, Peter, Apollo and Todd sit behind their women. Andy asks why Kordell wasn’t there and Porsha says he is working on his radio show. Nene is rolling her eyes so she knows something was up during that time. Andy asks if Kordell was pleased with his portrayal on the show and Porsha said he was comfortable with it because it was real. Bravo shows shots of the men getting along on the show, sharing Viagra, always waiting for their women while they are putting on makeup and gossiping about Walter and Kenya. Andy feels Gregg is usually the voice of reason until he hears Gregg say on the show that Kenya needed meds. Gregg then says Kenya might have needed a pill at the time because she got wound up. Andy then asks how Todd feels about being on the show and not behind the scenes. We find out that Todd did not want to appear on the show and Todd says he wanted to support his lady. He is so cute and so smooth. Andy asked about the accusations that Marlo made against Kandi being a sugar mama and Todd said Kandi can handle herself. Andy asks about Mama Joyce moving in. Todd loves Mama Joyce but Kandi and he are just getting to know each other and maybe in the future she can move in.

The conversation switches to Walter and Andy wants to know their opinions about Walter’s allegations and Peter says he believes he was promoting his tow truck company. Peter didn’t believe Walter and Kenya were in a relationship. Andy wants to take a poll if anyone believes if Walter and Kenya were in a relationship. Gregg questions the definition of relationship. Kandi feels they were dating but they were not ready for marriage. Andy asks why the guys kept Walter around. Peter says they were not friends with Kenya but with Walter. Kenya brings up Walter asking the men’s opinions before he went on a radio interview to clear up the homosexual allegations. Peter says they advised him not to do it. Kenya then says she has a source that told her the lawyer represented Walter in this whole situation. The lawyer refuted it.

Kandi feels Walter needs to defend himself in some way. Kenya states she has dated many celebrities and wealthy high profile men and they have never spoken negatively about her. Andy feels questioning a man about his sexuality on national television is something a man would want to respond to. Apollo feels if Kenya wanted to marry this man she wouldn’t say negative things about him. He thinks it was a charade and Kenya doesn’t want to address it. When Peter gets into it, Kenya then does a twirl and says she is “Gone with the Wind fabulous”. Peter points out that Walter is not there to defend himself. Kenya then sings her Gone with the Wind fabulous song without auto-tune.

Andy then asks Apollo how he feels about Kenya. Apollo says he dislikes her from a business perspective. Kenya then says maybe he should stop texting her. Everyone laughs. Apollo says Kenya went after him at the Beverly Wilshire so he had to check out and go to the Lux hotel and she kept sending him texts. Kenya then produces her phone to show the texts from Apollo to Andy. Andy says it is not sexting. Then the lawyer says that is why she calls her a whore. Kenya says Apollo has always initiated texts with her. Peter thinks she should not have entertained it. Kenya tells the lawyer to get an AIDS test then the lawyer tells her to re-augment her breasts because they look like banana boats. This back and forth is getting tiresome. Is this really worth a three part reunion?

Porsha, the pampered princes, is next. We see scenes of Porsha prancing around, attempting to sing with her congloberation, thinking there are 265 days in a year, saying people are guilty until proven guilty, not wanting to go a strip club and fighting with Kordell about wanting a baby and a career. Porsha states that Kordell and her are doing great even though they are going through some struggles and people are judging them unfairly. She was hoping to get advice from the other ladies but she felt they were knocking her down especially when she refused to go to the strip club. Nene feels that Kordell is a lot like Gregg was but she stands by what she said that Kordell is controlling. Porsha says no one has asked her what is going on and that her husband loves her. I feel bad about Porsha watching this later on knowing that Kordell filed for divorce shortly after this reunion was filmed.

Porsha feels the other ladies should uplift her and Nene feels this is not the show to be on for that. Nene states the other ladies will support you if someone dies. Porsha feels everyone was genuine towards her except for Kenya. She feels that her and Kordell are not perfect and gives an impassioned speech how she is going to represent her relationship with Kordell to the world. She wants more from her relationships with these women. She wants to be strong like them, have a career and take care of her man & cook his meals. She is going on and on about breaking the tv wall, having real relationships and wanting more for herself. Cynthia says she felt the same way her first season, putting her relationship on screen and she just has to swallow everyone’s judgment of it. Nene says everyone has gone through what she has gone through and they all got hit harder than the OC girls. Kandi apologized to Porsha regarding what she said about her marriage. Peter feels pissed off that Kordell is not there and he is supposed to be sitting behind her. Porsha is not looking emotional like in the promos. Andy asks about her singing voice and if she wants to defend her voice by singing. She gets excited and stands up while Kenya is looking annoyed. She does a few lines of Amazing Grace and she sounds way better than Kim, the countess and Gretchen put together.

Andy gives out presents – tshirts that says twirl, twirl in a twirl. Kenya jokes Bravo is going to make more money that her on the tshirts. Andy then jokes that the lawyer is going to get a backend.

Andy feels that the ladies supported each other more this season than any other. Nene agrees that the show this season is a lot less negative. Kandi felt the show was funny this season. Andy feels the lawyer took a lot at the reunion and she took it well. Nene feels there should be another cast member and she will talk to him in his office soon. That’s it folks. The end of the fifth season.



The Amazing Race – April 21, 2013 – by MelTheHound

Leg 9 – Berlin, Germany – The Ultimate Fun house.

Welcome back race fans. Last week we left off in Switzerland as Alabama was shown the race door after incurring a 30 minute penalty for not doing one of the tasks properly. That gave YouTube enough time to slip into 5th place and send them packing as it was, an elimination round. This week, we are going to Dresden, Germany, by train. Once there they have to get to the Ministry of Finance and find their Ford Fusions to get their next clue. This is another equalization starting point, they are all on the same train. For the record however, Hockey, Derby, Newlyweds, Country, and Youtube, in that order get to the ticket counter for the train. They have to walk from there to the train station because the cabs are all busy. While they are on the train, sleeping, apparently thievery is among them because someone has taken off with Bate’s backpack. No worries though, he has his passport and one of their race girlfriends (I still don’t know which one) offers him some of her underwear if he thinks he can use it.

Once they get to the station. they have to take a taxi to the Ministry of Finance to find the cars and their next clue. It tells them that they have to first, answer 3 inspired race questions on the text screen in the car. Newlyweds are there first and the first question was, Which President said “Tear Down This Wall”… Max answers, JFK 🙄 Yes, the correct answer (Ronald Reagan) was among the choices. After the computer told him he got it wrong he guessed correctly. He says he is embarrassed because Ron was his favorite president. Second question, Who did he say it to? Gorbachev. Third question.. Where did he say it.. Berlin. That’s where they are going next folks. Berlin, to the Brandenburg Gate. The other 4 teams get the right answers as we are shown.. Youtube, who were born after the Berlin wall fell, were fortunate enough this was a multiple choice quiz and Meghan seemed to guess the correct answers. Otherwise, they would probably be still sitting in that parking lot.  Meghan’s answer to the first one was Roosevelt (bless her heart).. Then, Clinton.. Really Meghan? That’s okay.. The country singers thought that the wall was, The Great Wall Of China… Not sure but I think that was Jennifer.. Really? You’re in Germany, and you ask if the wall, was the great wall of China? These two teams finally get it right thanks to multiple choice and as they are leaving (Newlyweds are long gone), Hockey and Derby moms arrive. Both of them seem to have a clue. So now the race is on again.

Now they all have to drive to Berlin and get to the Brandenburg Gate to find their next clue. It’s about a 100 mile trip from Dresden to Berlin. They are to go to the Park Inn Hotel and get to the roof. Guess what they are doing from there? Yep, Jumping off. This is a controlled base jump as they are via a small crane it looks like, hung out over the edge and then lowered down, quickly (I don’t know if this was a free fall or not), to a waiting platform back at street level. There, they will get their next clue. Newlyweds get to this first and complete the jump.

Meanwhile, Somehow, Hockey caught up to Country on the Autobahn and now they are traveling in a pair. They get lost or can’t find the gate so they stop and ask and are on their way. Country gets stopped at a light and for the next several minutes, it isn’t looking good for them. Somehow, YouTube beats both of them to the gate and they are now in second place (and stay there). Derby moms find it next and for some reason, as Hockey is on the way in, they tell the guys where to find the clue box. In the end here, all the teams find their clue, find the Park Hotel (it’s only the tallest building around), and jump off of the roof.

Next clue is a detour.. Font Follies or Train Trials. Both of these involve a museum of sorts. Font Follies, they have to collect two huge lit letters and deliver them to The Museum of Letters. There are several letters to choose from of course. Train Trials, they have to set up a train track, using all the pieces provided, in the space provided. Then, run the train around the track without any mishaps (derailments, bumping into anything, etc). I’m not sure but this may also be timed. Initially, YouTube is the only one to choose Train Trials. The rest, choose Font Follies. The strategy for the latter one is to choose a letter than can easily be carried through the streets of Berlin. By the way, these letters must remain completely intact. One more catch, once they choose a letter, they cannot switch (I don’t think this one came into play). YouTube gets the train task done. They had to run their course 7 or 8 times but it’s done and they are out of there. Newlyweds finish the letters task as well and both are on their way to the next location. One of the hockey player’s letters falls over while they are trying to get directions and breaks. So, either they go back for another or do the other task. They choose to do the Train Trials instead. I think it took 10 courses around the track to get it right for them. Country and Derby get their letters delivered.

Next is a roadblock. Okay.. All of that letter carrying and train layout building is to get them to the “Salon Zur Wilden Renate”. It’s a nightspot with something extra in the back. It is a labyrinth maze type fun house that is a cross between Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”, a Halloween fun house, and a fever dream. To gain entrance to the maze to search the next clue, the team member playing has to identify to the doorman, which president said, in Berlin “Ich Bin Ein Berliner” (I am a Berliner).. Most teams have to find somebody to ask, the answer is JFK. Once they do that, the team member can enter the labyrinth. Katie is askeered or so she would have us believe. Joey is enjoying it. He says it is the top roadblock in Amazing Race history. I think it is Jennifer who does it for Country (still don’t know which is which).

Just to lay out where we are team-wise. Newlyweds, YouTube, and Country are finished with the roadblock. Hockey is just finishing the train task of the detour. Derby moms are lost somewhere in Berlin looking for the salon. Derby and Hockey get there about the same time. Mona (I think) does the roadblock and as she is, Anthony is right behind her. This is a race for 4th place. Remember earlier, Derby helped Hockey at the Berlin gate. The two in the maze decide to kind of work together to find the next clue. Anthony finds it first somehow but they both get out of there at about the same time. Now it’s a race to the mat.

The pit stop (that’s where the clue takes them). Newlyweds finish first and each win a 2013 Ford Fusion. Nice. YouTube finishes second. Their best finish yet (I’d kind of like to see them win at least one leg – as long as it isn’t the last one – that is, unless they are against the newlyweds). Country is still comfortably in the middle at third place. Hockey and Derby are in a footrace to the mat, and Hockey beats them there by seconds to take fourth place. That means my favorites, Derby moms, Mona and Beth, are last. I’ll breathe a sigh of relief though, Non Elimination Round. Yay! They’re still in it (yes, I know I groaned when Newlyweds got that same break). This means, they will have to do a speed bump in the next round but at least, they still have a fighting chance.

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

See you next week. Peace, MTH aka WTFIJeff

PS.. Sorry folks, this recap is kind of crappy and all over the place and I have no cool pictures to show you. My computer ate the first draft when something crashed and I honestly wasn’t feeling like staying up til 6am rewriting it while listening to my dog whine about whatever he was whining about. Everything I say happened, did happen, I’m just not positive of the exact order. By the way… I went earlier in the week and looked up Meghan’s youtube channel. She does a lot of stuff there, most of it post teen oriented it seems but, she’s also doing recaps of her and Joey’s participation in the race. You can check her out here if you like at Strawburry17. I think you can also get to Joey’s channel from hers if you’re interested. See you next week.


Happy Birthday AZGirl

    Thank you very much for the Blogs RamonaCoaster and MelTheHound!

    Happy Birthday AzGirl, Grrrrrl! Enjoy your day, sweetie!!!! Hugs!!!

    Happy Birthday AZ Girl! Cathy’s Rum Cake anyone?

  3. Iowagirl says:

    Happy b-day AZ Girl !

    Good morning,
    Happy B-Day AZGirl 🙂

  5. HuskerHuny says:

    Happy, happy, happy day Ms. AzGirl!

    Rainy day here in Huskerland with maybe some – here it comes – SNOW tomorrow! Just wish we could save some of this moisture for July and August when we need it!

    Recaps were great again, as usual. AR is going to be just that – an amazing race to the finish! The hockey brothers showed that they can make mistakes and the newlyweds showed that they are a team to be reckoned with. The other three teams have also had their moments of success, so it’s going to be exciting to see who wins!

    Didn’t really watch ATL because I’m watching Celebrity Apprentice. It was hands down that Penn’s team would win last night. How can an office chair zip line and a man in a shark costume beat Zulu dancers and musicians? Brandy should have brought Little John back in with her instead of Mary Lou; that move may have gotten her fired or at least it sealed the deal. As entertaining as Gary is, he cannot win this thing! I think it comes down to Penn and Trace with Mary Lou as a dark horse.

    I’m the only one at work on my end of the hallway today. I’m going to play my music as loud as I can stand it. Any requests? Happy Monday to all!

    • lizzle says:

      the bangles: Manic Monday

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Love that song, Lizzle. Now you’ve got me singing it!! I secretly think to myself: “Happy Crappy Monday!” but I don’t say it out loud cause I’m so busy being “happy and CHEERFUL!!” about being back at work Monday morning. Fake it til you make it. Because the truth is, I do love my job and I’m lucky to be working…but Monday mornings are blah-ish – so I have to convince myself again how happy I am to be here on a MOnday morning! hahhaa! But I can be honest here HAPPY CRAPPY MONDAY!!! Oh and my daughter is going back to L.A. today so that’s another reason I’m grumpalicious.

      • chismosa says:

        Love it!

        I think I heard Prince wrote that song

    • Stars99 says:

      lol… Sing it, baby, sing it! It’s FUN to listen to loud music and to sing at the top of your lungs – it also helps to dance around a bit…= ) Starts to inexplicably sing, “Sing, sing a song… sing out loud… sing out strong – Don’t worry that it’s not good enough for anyone else to her, just sing, sing a song… La la lalala… la la lalala… lalalalalalaaaaa.”… “I see a little silhouetto of a man… scaramouch… scaramouch… Will you do the fandango?”… “There’s a fire starting in my heart… Reaching a fever pitch it’s bringing me out the dark.” Squirrel… Yes folks… just as I recently posted on FB… I think 80% of my brain is comprised of song lyrics… lol… it could be 99% if I’m really honest with myself…

      • Oh Stars99….you just make my day Lady!! Not feeling well today and this just made me LOL all over the place!

        “Thunder bolts of lightening, very very frightening…me…Galileo, Galileo, Figuero, Magnificooooo, Oh Mama Mia, Mama Mia…let me go….Beelzibub has a devil put aside for me, for meeeeee……” 😛

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day; Monday, Monday, sometimes it just works out that way. The office across from mine is getting some fiber installation today so all I’m hearing is drilling. Expecting a major headache around noon today!

      • Powell says:

        I can see you Stars! 😉

      • TexasTart says:

        LOL! Stars – I heart you for singing on the blog, we need more lyric minded souls! 😀

    • melthehound says:

      Yeah, I’ll give Newlyweds their props. They did good on this leg. I think the hockey brothers would have come in last if the Derby moms hadn’t helped them in the beginning. By seconds but last still the same.

    • Powell says:

      Husker sorry about the possibility of S N O W Again! :-).

      I should have watch CA too. I wanted to watch ATL & chat e/everyone. It was kinda strange. IDK. Some very good moments especially when the guys came out.

  6. plainviewsue says:

    Happy birthday AZ Girl!!

    I don’t watch RHOA. I tried 1st season, and after a couple of episodes, I was done.

    But because of all of the twitter chatter, I decided to watch part three of the reunion. I obviously know who Nene is (who I find to be hysterical on Glee), but don’t really know the other ladies. So I am watching this totally unbiased.

    First off, who the hell is this fan throwing down Kenya!!!??? OMG, between the looking at her phone while showig her scenes, twirling all over the place & just seeming to be a disgusting piece of work! I saw a part of another part of the reunion where she would just open up her fan and almost hit the woman next to her!

    I also (and remember I didn’t watch the show) really felt for Portia, when she seemed to speak from her heart about her marriage, her idolism of the women of the show & how she had hoped to find more support from them. Nene was hysterical when she said you’ll only get support if someone dies!

    • melthehound says:

      I wanted to shove that fan up kenya’s nose or down her throat. Of all the fakes on that show, she’s the absolute worse of the bunch. She’s been watching Omerosa too long.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Omarosa . . . that’s it! You nailed that one MTH. Both rather despicable people. Add KKB and you have a certifiable crazy trio.

        • melthehound says:

          I only saw part three. I doubt I could stomach all three installments. All I saw from her was her fake crying and all I could think of was Omerosa in DTrump’s board room on Celebrity Apprentice. I don’t know who the hell any of them think they are fooling. Yes, Add KKB in the mix and you have the nutty trifecta.

      • Powell says:

        Whichever way was the quickest huh MTH?

      • Contessa says:

        You were kind about where you put that fan, I wanted to shove it up her nether regions and give her a twirl, since the vestal virgin did not have sex with Walter. So what was that scene that she talked about him not wanting her when she was naked in the shower – she is so full of poop and let’s add craziness into the soup. Phaedra was not far off – this woman needs some lithium or some kind of pill.

        • melthehound says:

          I was trying to keep it clean when I wrote that.. Actually though, I think her head is so far up her own ass in her opinions about herself, any opening will do as they are all centrally located.

    • Stars99 says:

      Sue, I have a love/hate relationship with RHOA – I originally watched it but then got tired of the NeNe and Kim… then Sheree just put me over the edge… and then they fired the only sane one on the show because she didn’t bring enough drama (at least that’s what I remember)… Now, sadly, I just point and laff at them. The sad part about Nene’s comment about you’ll only get support when someone dies – was because Kandi’s fiance actually died between seasons at one point – and if she actually did receive any support it was certainly very short lived, IPPHO.

      • TexasTart says:

        You are so right!!! Gulp. Puts a whole ‘nother spin on what NeNe said. 😦

      • Kansas Girl says:

        Did Pindy approve that?

        • chismosa says:

          Hahaha 😹

        • TexasTart says:

          LOL! Good question, Kansas! I looked right past that and commented. Well, I see the Princess has arrived….it’s only a matter of time before we know!

        • Stars99 says:

          IPPHO she did…lolol… Hi there all we are is dust in the wind… how the heck are ya?

          • Kansas Girl says:

            I’m good, Starsie! How are you shining? You should have seen me Saturday! Helped clean out a bldg that had been used as storage since the 40s. Talk about dusty! And it was that grimy kind of dust. Everything in the wash, when I got home.

    • TexasTart says:

      Don’t you know she is “Gone with the Wind Fabulous”?! Just kidding, Sue! I read the part about you haven’t watched before the reunion. Kenya is a character. I just don’t know any other way to put it. I think part of what we see and the rest is just short of being a cartoon character. I think this is why you’ll find NeNe is her primary support and the one to laugh at her antics during the reunion – because a part of being NeNe is gimick oriented too.

      I watched all season and I felt very sad for Porsha in the end. I guess that is who NeNe wanted replaced? Andy said we would find out who NeNe meant when she is on WWHL May 5. And Porsha was on WWHL last night to reveal she was, as we thought, blindsided – but even worse than that, she found out via Twitter with Kordell in the house. He didn’t even give her the courtesy of personally telling her! Choice words for that man, is all I have.

      RAMONACOASTER, thank you for the recap which helped fill in some blanks. That was the strangest reunion episode I can remember watching!!! Frankly I didn’t want to watch it again for what I didn’t pick up on the first go, so thanks for taking time to do a detailed recap!

      MTH, thanks for Amazing Race. I’m sorry your draft disappeared – I know what that is like to be on a deadline and have to recraft what took hours to build. You did good to pull that back together even if in short form – is better than no form! lol Oh, I get the whining too. Give Mel a cookie for me!

      Don’t party too hard today AZGirl, I’m sure Nancy will go all out tomorrow, lol, and I’m pretty sure someone mentioned they have a birthday later this week. Lots of cake…please save me some! 😉

      • TexasTart says:

        Correction: Kenya; I think part of what we see IS REAL and the rest is a character.

      • melthehound says:

        Thanks TexasT… What can I say about the vanishing recap…. shit happens I guess.

        • Stars99 says:

          Perhaps your dog literally ate your homework?

          • melthehound says:

            Judging from the pile he left on my landing, Before he started whining, that very well could be.

            • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

              I hope you didn’t step in it 🙂 Doggie diapers anyone?

              • melthehound says:

                No but, he did. Then he tracked it all over the house. I’d pay money to see a person put a diaper on this dog.

                • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

                  Ugh. Sorry about the mess. I hear ya about getting a diaper on him. My last cat was a difficult one to handle.

          • chismosa says:

            I heard on the radio a man somewhere here in the US had requested the treasury department reimburse him 500$ that his dog ate.
            The man took the pieces after the dog was done (uh, yeah gross), cleaned them up and pieced them together. Apparently if serial numbers match up the dept will reimburse !

      sue that was Kandi sitting next to Kenya & her fan. I’m surprised Kandi didn’t ask Andy to give,Kenya & her fan a chair all by themselves. She got on my nerves w/that fan.

  7. Iowagirl says:

    Maybe this has been discussed before but I am going to vent it again. Nene makes me sick flashing her 15 carat ring. It seems like she gave a lesson on scamming people. She and Greg spent irresponsibly, divorced so she would not have to pay creditors with her new found wealth, then spent what should have been paid back on a big flashly ring. This is discusting, I bet those creditors are flaming pissed, I have no respect for these two people I wish someone could go after them for fraud.

    • chismosa says:

      Can they do that to Teresa too!? Especially the book advance fiasco ?
      Oh my mouth is watering. …..

    • princesspindy says:

      MTE about Greg and NeNe splitting up due to $$ circumstances!!!!!!
      Phake, Phoney. Phraud!!! IPPHO!!

      • chismosa says:

        Ooooh I hope that was some shady “read” (can’t stand that word now from watching Fashion Queens)— directed at Ms Parks, Esq.?


        • princesspindy says:

          Actually, I was talking about NeeNee, but it applies to Phakera as well, they all suck. I didn’t watch part 3, I just couldn’t, I put it on for about 30 seconds and my cold, little, dark, heart tore into little pieces when Porsha was talking, had to change the channel, then I shut it off.

        • TexasTart says:

          I hear you Chismosa, re: “read” Fashion Queens somehow managed to use that word in every other sentence and I was so fed up with the overuse of it and the attitudes, so I had to give that up. I was interested in the ATL tea, just not the delivery.

    Happy Birthday AZGIRL !!!!

    Have a great bday AZgirl! Hope it’s spectacular.

    Mel, caught tar for the first time his season. Am I alone in thinking country looks better with their knit hats on rather than off? I know, nutty thought but there it is.

    Thanks for the recaps!

  10. Lulu says:

    Good morning!!! I happened to watch RHOA reunion last night here is my summary:

    Kenya–Bat@hit crazy.

    Porsha-Is hard to follow when she talks on a tangent. Something about careers? dinner? huh? Someone should advise her to think before she talks. The woman comes from money you would have thought they would have hired a tutor for her. It’s obvious she has some sort of learning disability. Has a hard time forming sentences maybe Dyslexia? Either way she comes off like a airhead talk talk talk no substance.

    Kandi-no comment I really have no interest in her life on the show. The show changed her and not for the best.

    Anyone catch last night’s episode of “Call the midwives?”

    • princesspindy says:

      No but I started watching a show on PBS about WWII code breaking women, after the war, solving a murder mystery. I changed the channel when they showed a woman being held hostage….won’t watch it on Criminal Minds, won’t watch it on PBS!!

      • Lulu says:

        Don’t remember the name but read the description. It sounded interesting?

        • princesspindy says:

          It was kinda slow starting and just when I was interested they had the woman being held by a murderer and I can’t watch that kind of stuff… 😦

  11. AZGirl says:

    @cocfarm, IowaGirl, HuskerHuny and Cathy I hope you are all safe from the flooding.
    @Rebecca LOVE Cathy’s Rum Cake!
    Thank you Mel and Ramonacoaster for the recaps.
    As for the reunion. I just watch a little bit. It is so obvious that Andy favors Atlanta. The back and forth is for me really tiresome. Kenya is just crazy.
    Game of Thrones was great last night. Lady Olena (sp?) is really a great character. Baby dragons are all grown up!

  12. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Did you all not want to get up like I didn’t? ATL reunion was kinda, I don’t know what word to use? Weird? Well you all have a great day.

    • TexasTart says:

      Hi Powell, I for sure needed another day off and of course, can not do that, have to work.

      It was weird!!!! I have been using the word strange – but all the same and I’ve never watched one that I felt that way about. And I mean part 3 in particular, I didn’t feel exactly that way about parts 1 and 2.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I was pretty sure it was Sunday when I woke up. The realization was disappointing!

    Some flooding around here, pretty minor. The golf course has small mini ponds on it, it will be months before it dries completely.

  14. Stars99 says:

    I dunno… is it REALLY AZ’s birthday today? I’m so confused from the previous blogs… Happy Birthday if it’s your birthday… and Happy Unbirthday if it’s not! = )

  15. Stars99 says:

    Mel – Loved the blog – Were you surprised it was a non-elimination? I’m so glad because I’m rooting for the derby moms… I thought the challenge of carrying the neon signs from point A to point B was pointless… especially cuz I was expecting a museum… and point B just looked like a store front with some neon signs laying around… lol

    Ramonacoaster – Great recap – hands an award to you for making it through the season! Woo hoo! You’ve been doing a really wonderful job week after week – and you should do a happy dance now that the season is over! Shimmy, shimmy to the left; shimmy, shimmy to the right!

    • melthehound says:

      Stars, I was glad too. Derby moms are my pick as well. I saw the name of that sign letter museum at least a dozen times and I still couldn’t tell you what it was.

    • chismosa says:

      In Europe things are placed in odd places to what it may seem like to us Americans — I remember supermarkets being in like sub-sub-basements of malls, I wouldn’t be surprised to find a small niche museum (not something so big, well-known), situated within another structure. It’s being practical also in the city planning. I believe! Jmho

      • Kansas Girl says:

        I spent Saturday cleaning out a store front that used to be a plumbing shop — dirt floor, toilets a plenty, etc. It will be our new museum. Museums will pretty much take whatever space they can find! I know of 2 in dairy barns!

  16. realhousewifeva says:

    I think Phaedra was totally onto something when she said Kenya has mental issues. When she was singing quietly to herself while the men were talking? CRAY CRAY! The look on her face the entire reunion was pure hatred and anger. The reunion was NOT a good look for her. She brought the crazy during the season, but during the reunion she took it to a whole new serious level and came off as unstable and overly angry, and I think the other ladies see this. I’m not Phaedra’s biggest fan, but hands down she won the Phaedra vs. Kenya battle during the reunion. Kept her cool and had some hilarious zingers “I’m not a good lawyer… But I done got all the clients..” That made me laugh out loud and I loved how the captioned it.

    Poor porsha, she so dim-witted but harmless, but I dont buy for one second that she had no clue Kordell was going to file for divorce. Clearly there were problems between them beforehand. On WWHL she said something about her speech at the reunion was her last attempt to save her marriage and that when she found out Kordell was divorcing her, they were sleeping in two seperate rooms?
    However, I gotta hand it to her, her voice wasn’t bad.

    No matter what drama Nene has, she always makes me laugh. The way she was cracking up the whole time was so funny. I think her sisters are being so ridiculous about this whole “half sister” terminology. If you have one same parent, and one different, YOU ARE HALF SIBLINGS. Go away with your B.S. Sorry but I don’t care for siblings that try to ride off the coattails of these housewives ‘success’ (*coughJOEGORGAcough*). Now all these years later, when Nene is getting her own show, do they care what she wrote in her book or if Greg borrowed money or whatever?

    I don’t see Phaedra and Apollo lasting for the long haul. His comment about how he could have had Kenya if he wanted? Not a good look Apollo. Sit down and be pretty. I would not be amused if my hubby was texting someone I hated, regardless of the content. That’s some shady crap on BOTH their parts. I like how everyone was like “Why would you even entertain a convo with a married man?” with Kenya. They both were attracted to one another and that’s just so low down dirty.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Great comment!! My favorite part was your coughing fit. hee hee!!

    • chismosa says:

      It’s so funny how we all see it so subjectively?! I thought Phake came off looking TERRIBLY, with her nonstop eye rolls and side eyes and face scrunches. She never really wanted to take initiative to answer questions unless King Andy asked directly to her
      Her body language spoke volumes to me, but jmho

      I find her super shady I don’t see that marriage lasting the distance

      • realhousewifeva says:

        That is funny how everyone sees it different. I’ve never been a Phaedra fan and think she’s putting on a show all the time, but like I said, I thought her face expressions and little zingers were funny. And I really can’t judge her body language because I’ve been that pregnant a few times and it’s NEVER comfortable to try to sit nice and straight. At that point in my pregnancies, I’m always sitting in weird looking positions. lol.
        At least she didn’t look full of venom, the way Kenya did. Kenya scared me. I really think she needs therapy. I’m sure her childhood and upbringing has caused her to have some ‘issues’ she should take care of, IMO.

    • Contessa says:

      I agree with you that Porsha had an inkling he was not happy with her, but like many of us wives that have been fooled, cheated on, lied to, she was probably still at the point of hoping that counseling would help them somehow and he would agree to the things that were important to her. I have no doubt the divorce came out of left field and for the way he did it, I hope she gets a nice chunk of change, as he is a f’ing coward not to face his wife. But most men who lie and control really are weaklings and will take the back door to a confrontation and later re-write history to make themselves look good. That little speech was probably about the argument Porsha and her POS H had when he wouldn’t come to the reunion and she was (in her speech) fighting for herself and her marriage. I like Phaedra, and I hope she and Apollo last, but who knows…she may not be beautiful like Cynthia, but she has a lot going for herself, and I think she is a good wife and mother, and she has a fine reputation in the legal circles of Atlanta.

      Kenya is mentally unstable…she does not belong on that show. She has done nothing but cause nasty scenes, lie, accuse, flirt with married men, besmirch a man’s reputation and challenge his manhood – all while twirling a fan and singing to herself – this is not normal.

  17. LA Debra says:

    I will be curious to see if this sister drama spills over into Nene’s spin off. … cause I smell a put up, faked storyline with manufactured drama. And I mean by smell, it stinks to the max. I’m just saying ….

    And Happy Birthday AZ 🙂

  18. Stars99 says:

    omg… RHOA Reunion… I just watched and rewatched the part where Porsha breaks out into “Amazing Grace”… and honestly… I believe she actually sings, “that saved a wrench like me”… (instead of wretch)… No Porsha, Kordell was the tool in your relationship, not you!

    • Realhousewifeva says:

      Lol my closed captioning said “wretch”

      • iceNfire says:

        Porsha handled herself well on WWHL I hope she comes back b/c I do believe she is really being herself. I hope to never see Kenya again and if she is invited back she may as well pass out written scripts for the rest of the cast.

        • iceNfire says:

          Oh! Do the husbands/bf’s of HW’s get a Bravo check?

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I found this…”And what do husbands of housewives get paid? Interestingly, the report claims each man gets his own amount. On RHOA, Peter gets paid more than Kroy and Apollo, claims the report.” last paragraph of this article

            • LaineyLainey says:

              This could explain why he seems to have had an attitude adjustment toward the show. He used to be somewhat disdainful and now??? Hey I want to get married in Anguilla! Let’s all hang out at the over the hill stripclub!! Let’s film while doing inane things like shopping!

    • chismosa says:

      My recording messed up and did not get the end, only the start of Arsenio doing her over the top singing. Did her hands go up and down too? Lol.
      So I missed the final “talking points”– I guess no one else’s DVR gave out like mine did on this? I have to see when I can catch the end again ……
      Want to see that nene comment

      I said it weeks ago, I don’t think Porsha would have been so easily re-signed if not for the divorce and crazy rumors. Maybe nene had her # like I think I did. ??????

      Andy needs to be more well-rested and made up for his next reunion, he looked awful I know he was in Austin at the time. Very sallow and sleep deprived

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I thought Nene was talking about getting rid of Kenya… the way she looked at Cynthia and Phaedra when she said they needed a new housewife, to see if those 2 agreed, made me think she was alluding to Kenya. Who else would Phaedra want to get rid of? Nene recently hung out with Porsha, porsha intagrammed a pic of them out together

    • TexasTart says:

      Oh! I heard wrench! I missed this comment earlier! LOL but he is the tool! She has a knack for misprouncing or made up words, so it would not surprise me and closed caption misses often.

  19. iceNfire says:

    Watching Dr. Drew host the Mob Wives reunion was not a good look for him he seemed to be trying to fit in and came across a a Huge fan. There was so much cross talking/screaming idk what was said but I think I heard Drita say Lee will not be seen on tv and “it’s a wrap”…wonder if that means she wont be back and see no reason why she would want to at this point when she has everything she wants i her life.

    • nyc mama says:

      Dr. Drew is a fan and has stated so many times.

      Drita is coming back for season 4 but she stated that Lee will not be on the show. He doesn’t want to be.

      The show gives her a platform for her business so there is no reason for her not to do it with or without Lee. He can remain the same presence that he has been for the last 3 seasons, in the background. She has become one of the most popular among the women along with Big Ang and Renee so I think they will want her to return and besides, the money she makes from the show and her personal appearances is used to supplement her family so again, why shouldn’t she do it? There seems to be more pluses than minuses for her.

      • iceNfire says:

        LoL at ” He can remain the same presence that he has been for the last 3 seasons, in the background.”….So that’s the term for being in prison these days… ‘in the background’

        • nyc mama says:

          In the background as in spoken about but not seen. Since he isn’t in prison anymore and she said living in the house it won’t be exactly the same but at least we don’t have to see her drag the kids on visits to prison.

          No way could Karen and Ramona carry a show (yawn) and Big Ang is friendlier with Drita and Carla and doesn’t really associate with Ramona or Karen and she brings no drama so without Drita what do you have? Again she is a fan favorite. Renee, well, it depends on the minute but apparently she and Carla are ok…for now and she is also talking to everyone else again, for now. I wouldn’t mind a show with only Renee, Big Ang and Drita. The rest can go away imo.

          As for Dr. Drew, like Joiy Behar last year he is now history.

          She was a makeup artist and is how she supported herself before the show, while Lee was “away”. Unlike Tre she actually acknowledges the words, jail, prison, incarcerate, etc. Her store, both storefront and online, are both supposedly doing well and her public appearances seem to do well too so there are enough people out there who like her to keep her on the show. Can’t say the same about Ramona. I’m not sure what she does other than fight other people’s battles or plan weddings without a groom. Renee steals business titles from magazines and I don’t know whatever happened to her “Jail Mail” idea since she hasn’t said much about it since season 1.Carla doesn’t add or detract imo and her only storyline this year was being Love’s victim so I’m not sure what she can bring next with her arch enemy now gone.

          I doubt anyone watches this show or HWNJ or actually most of these shows for their impecable grammar or diction or their superior intellect. Then again the same could be said for Married to Medicine where that vile Quad was discussing her dogs “warbrobe”or any of these shows.

          At this point I am finding them all ridiculous and are nothing but time wasters which for me has begun to grow old, very very old.

          I said before that I am done with most of them. Won’t watch the Medicine show, don’t watch the OC, only watched the ATL reunion(s) this year and I don’t plan on watching NJ with Kim D and the other fools that do nothing but stir the pot and I’m done with Shah’s because Reza makes my skin crawl. I don’t watch the stupid shrink show either. So now I am down to Tabitha and BH and we’ll see if this year the real estate will hold my interest. I’ll give it a shot but I find I like Selling NY and LA better. And Mob Wives season 4 is also on the maybe list. Will depend on several factors but I am just glad that Love is gone but I wish she took Ramona and Karen with her.

          Bravo has jumped the shark in this house. Imo they succeeded in finding a way to make mindless entertainment disturbing. So Travel channel and cooking channel will be on more than Bravo until something better comes along but with summer coming it isn’t too bad,

          • chismosa says:

            I love Selling NY, despite the many changes. Don’t like that Michelle Kleier and the 2 daughters with the super tacky makeup and jewelry. They never heard of less is more. They all 3 look so insecure and are stuck in like 2001 UES. And skirts don’t work for them

            I just personally in my own life, based on situations that happened to my family and friends abroad, can’t stand Drita the beast, who polished off her image so nicely for this past season. To me, just me, she and Carla are heckle and jeckle. Ughh gross

            We all like who we like what can we say? it makes me shudder to think of Drita as a fan favorite but they say Reza is one as well so there you go…..?

    • chismosa says:

      Darn I wish she and Carla would leave. Where was this business savy and makeup store when her husband was (in the immortal words of Tre)– “Away”??
      She was trying rapping and modeling I know ?
      How did she support (or Carla, or any of them)— their kids when their partners were “Away”?
      Sadly I think Lee wont stop his ways. Cheating-wise, nor criminal-wise. We’ll see 🙍

      Carla just confirmed what a shady shady lady she has always been last night especially via her body language. Leave the show if 90% of the cast hate you and you hate and complain complain about them. You can’t have fun anywhere ! !!!!???
      So stupid. Thank god I don’t watch Chicago

      • iceNfire says:

        i didn’t know there was a Chicago, guess i’m not missing anything

        • chismosa says:

          There is……I tried……I couldn’t take the accents

          Then again our ny ones have horrific accents especially Carla and her eating letters, lisp, and mangled words (he stoled something)

    • melthehound says:

      Watching Dr Drew do anything is not a good look. I don’t know if he was always this way but he’s as much of a fame whore as all the rest of them.

      • TexasTart says:

        I think Dr. Drew started out okay but he for sure became a fame whore and it became evident at some point during Celebrity Rehab that I thought this was just about money and being on TV rather than helping people. But what really did me in for Dr. Drew, is when he had Taylor Armstrong on his show (she was pushing her book) and he believed every word she said and wanted the audience to feel sorry for her (any buy her book). He admonished people for questioning the authenticity of her abuse claims. I’ll bet he didn’t know anything about her past or doesn’t care. The big nail in Dr. Drew’s coffin for me was finding out that he is friends with Dr. Sophy who was The Grifter’s TV shrink. What a joke.

        • Nancy says:

          He also was the “shrink” during Celebrity Rehab. What really upsets me is that he and
          his wife had triplets and he was always gone. He had his radio show and his fathers
          private practice. Now that their kids are out of the house he once again makes it all about himself by having another TV show every night. He’s everywhere. When I saw
          him last night doing The Mob Wives reunion that was it for me. I have no respect for him
          in every area of his life. I feel so sorry for his wife. What a selfish man.

        • melthehound says:

          I remember that TexasT… For me, it’s his stint on reality TV in general. I may be wrong for doing it but I always question the integrity of these TV shrinks.

          • TexasTart says:

            Rightfully so…..sometimes I just have a gut feeling that someone is doing something for the wrong reasons and I didn’t have that with him initially. It took time for me to witness a little of this and that to realize that while I respected his knowledge, I didn’t respect how he was using it anymore.

    Andy was on Wendy Williams show today. RHONJ came up.

    Danielle will NOT be on the show this season.

    The best part was Wendy couldn’t remember Melissa’s name and referred to her as Teresa’s SIL!!!! THAT WAS CLASSIC!!!!

    Andy used the buzz words “roller coaster season” which is what Caroline & Albie have said in interviews.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      MeGo must have really hated that…Wendy calling her Tre’s sIL

    • chismosa says:

      Wtf is Prince Baby Albie doing giving interviews ?
      Ughhhhhhh 🙉🙉🙉🙉🙉

      As a loyal WW watcher I can tell you she messes up HUGE celebrities names on a daily basis. It’s very funny. Just saying.
      But I know the Mel G haters will love this

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Just as the Tre haters would love it if Wendy had forgotten Tre’s name!!! hahahaha!! Is this the beginning of 2013 NJ Cray? It’s starting, it’s starting!!!!!

        • chismosa says:

          Yeah I guess so Lainey 😢😢😢😢
          I don’t know where to go, maybe another blog in the interim but I don’t want to leave here, so sad 😭😪

          I don’t expect any “real” Teresa anyway. I expect *Apprentice * Teresa by now. She’s being managed to the T (no pun)
          Even last season with impeccable designer stylist choices for a walk to her supermarket.
          And I had it with the Don since season 1

          Who knows ?

          But I’m not kidding, I watch Wendy every single day (I know some dont like her here) — but she forgets honest to goodness big household A-list celeb names every day. It’s so funny

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Don’t cry Chismosita…and don’t go elsewhere to love on MeGo/Hate on Tre. It’s all good, we’ll make it through!!!

            Yeah, I DVR wendy and try to watch everyday. She makes me laugh. I like the hot topics. Sometimes, sommmmmmetimes, I think she is mean-spirited. and Sometimes, sometimmmmmmmes she is mean to her guests. Do you remember her interview with T.O.? But you know, she had her opinion and her take on him and she kinda let him have it. and it is, after all HER TALK SHOW!!! She is not the most diplomatic person, but hey that’s what put her name on the map so as my late father in law would say, “you gotta dance with who (or what) brung ya.” He was from Arkansas. She’s being true to herself (Wendy) and her methods have brought her success in her field, so why change, now?? I would love to meet her, you??? Have you ever thought of going to a taping of her show. That would be so fun!!!

            • chismosa says:

              Yes my friend and I want to go but I told her lets wait until christmas time so we can win presents !!! Lol

              I am like you, more into Hot Topics. If she was sweetness and light all the time, shed be Ellen. She is telling it how “SHE” sees it and actually loves when the audience speaks their mind to her

              I seem to remember – I was not a loyal every day dvr’er – she had Omarosa on- and it was NASTY. Like, accusing each other of having nose jobs or something? That’s why I was shocked she had her on again recently.

              Well we’ll see what happens with jersey Lainey, thanks youre the best !

              —-sidenote I saw what tonight’s OC looks like, you are all going to go cra-cra regarding Tamara it seems. And she’s on WWH
              I know people despise her

      • plainviewsue says:

        She didn’t mess up the name. She said “Teresa’s sister-in-law. What’s her name??” Andy said Melissa.

        Wendy was team Melissa all last season & now can’t remember her name.

        I loved it.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          She’s still Team Melissa…on her show recently she attacked Kim and Teresa for the cover story of Melissa allegedly cheating on Joe that was in that magazine a couple months ago

    We are expecting another 6-8 inches in the Twin Cities metro area. I’ve only been back from Jamaica a week and now I’m regretting complaining about the heat and humidity.
    I’m over the RH shows in that I don’t WATCH them when they air I catch the reruns because we all know bravo loves to replay them to death. I’m enjoying Once Upon A Time and Revenge. I’m rediscovering my creative side so I’ll be sewing and planning outings with my Grandkidlets. I miss those carefree days when my kids were small and we just went on adventures to the mall or the park. Now I can do those with my Grandbabies. ok they are 6 y.o., 4 y.o. and 17 months, but still my babies!
    Rainy days and Monday always get me down…. especially if they involved snow…sigh
    Blessings to you all,

      My hubby loves Minne”snow”ta, he use to go there for 3 days a week, every week for one year. He said everyone was so nice, lol!!! He kept trying to get me to go but I missed the window of opportunity between the snow and the mosquitoes, lol! I was sitting on my patio Saturday, drinking coffee listening to the waterfall, trying to convince my dogs to jump in the pool and it got hot so I went inside, lol!

      • designernailsdiana says:

        Oh that’s just mean…..when can I come visit? You can convince me to jump in the pool!

        • HuskerHuny says:

          At least we are only getting rain, but we might see some white stuff tomorrow. Yes, it does melt right away, but it’s still cold!!! Weekend is looking good though. Hang in there Minnesotans!

          • Kansas Girl says:

            it looks on the radar like you’re getting crazy amounts of rain, but the snow is staying pretty far to the west. We’re maybe getting snow tomorrow night too. Ugh!

        • princesspindy says:

          lol, I don’t even think you want to go in it right now, it is cold, and not just wimpy southern california cold. I have to call the solar guy, we have a leak so the system is shut off….

          • designernailsdiana says:

            I’m tough…..I could handle it after all I’ve been playing in the snow for 150 months in a row. hee hee

    • Powell says:

      Dian you & Husker need to do a Spring dance. You weather keeps saying snow. :-

      I hope you are back to your old self feeling better.

      Once Upon a Time was good last night. I guess Revenge is back next Sunday. Only 4 epis left I think.

    Andy Cohen was on Jimmy Fallon last Thursday….anyone see that?

    Don’t worry, you didn’t miss anything! 😛 I never heard any mention of Bravo or discussion of shows – he was expressly there to push his book. I have the feeling the people in the audience where like, who the __ is this guy?! Because let me tell you, he was SO HYPER! A complete spaz! Think about the oldest kid at a birthday party when the pinata comes out. I thought there for a moment when Jimmy said they were going to play a game that Andy was going to go all Tom Cruise and jump on a chair up and down…..seriously, I thought that.

    “Stand on American Ground”— oh my god Reece you are such a loser. I knew there was something off about her. Cold beyotch!

    Truth serum I tell you

    • princesspindy says:

      Do you know who I am??? Do you???? lol, blame it on the alll~co~hollll!!!

      • TexasTart says:

        No kidding. I couldn’t believe, goodie two shoes Reese? But then alcohol was why, yep, I believe.

        In Austin, Texas they arrested the county DA on driving while intoxicated and she wasn’t just intoxicated, she was wasted as much as 3 x the legal limit. They have video in jail that was shown on the TV news because they had issues with her being disrespectful. After she was restrainted (strapped to a devise) she was telling the people, to call the sheriff (as if he would let her go) and told the jail workers that they were going to be in real big trouble! And one worker replied, no YOU are going to be in big trouble! HA!
        (She got the maximum penalites by law and is serving time now. Some want her out of that job though, so it’s still a big topic here.)

    • Powell says:

      I was watching it on the news. She & her husband should be ashamed. They know they were wrong & then played the “do you know who I am” card. Well you’re ReeseWitherspoon & you and your husband are know the recipients of lovely mug shots. No hairstylist or makeup artist allowed. 😀 Iike RW. I don’t like Stars playing the Star card.

      Some groups there do not want girls to get any education.

        Evil mfing misogynist pos. I remember the case where a girl’s school in SA was on fire and the girls, running from the inferno were forced back into the burning building because they weren’t hadn’t put there hijabs on in their rush to exit the building.

    Happy birthday AZGirl!

  30. shamrockblonde says:

    Happy Birthday AZ Girl!!! – may all of your wishes come true * carries in a Carvel Ice Cream Cake* – ok – who has the candles?

    Jeff!! – thanks for the recap – yuck – those newlyweds… – they are so prissy all the time! – now that they have won a leg, great competitors that they are * yes, sarcasm* may it be their last – either hockey or derby for me – I also like the country girls though – that fun house thing looked cool – there is not a chance in the world though, that I could be on that show – I won’t eat a lot of normal foods, let alone all or most of what is mandadory to eat on that show, and not a chance I would jump off of a building on purpose – nope – not happening – but at the very least, I know my Country’s history – and I know how to be respectful of other cultures – something the newlyweds have no idea how to be – give the hound a cookie for me – thanks again for all of the blogs –

    *hugs entire board really hard*

    So much for Canada being safe of terrorism. They just arrested two that were planning an attack.

  32. lillybee says:

    I just found a brilliant essay on the RH by Kareen Abdul Jabbar.

    • Powell says:

      lillybbee thks for that. KAJ wrote a great article. Andy is the Andy Warhol of Reality TV & I love how talked about made up relationships. Calling Kenya Moore. :-). I tweeted the article to Andy.

      • iceNfire says:

        Thanks for link lillybee! This is The Best article I’ve ever read about the HW’s franchise…I’m gonna go read it again…

    • TexasTart says:

      Thanks! A surprisingly good read!

    • chismosa says:

      Wait, the basketball star? I didn’t know he was some sort of essayist/journalist.

  34. Powell says:

    Miss Lainey. Are you still grumpalicious or has that passed? 🙂

  35. AZGirl says:

    THANK YOU ALL FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES! No dining out tonight. That handbag was more than enough money spent. Now I need to find the courage to take it somewhere 🙂
    Made homemade Pork BBQ, Fruit salad and coleslaw. Yummy!
    RT had a recap of Atlanta which was very funny. RT made an interesting point which I totally agree. Peter is more interesting then Cynthia. Cynthia has gotten really dull.

  36. AZGirl says:

    OMG! First born came home from work and gave me a bouquet of flowers and a card from both him and second born. The card made me cry. So sweet. They LOVE ME! and appreciate all that I do for them. So I guess I did ok……

  37. Powell says:

    Do you all watch House Crashers, Kitchen Crashers, Bathroom Crashers, Yard Crashers on DIY Network? The Ultimate Crashers is on. Basically all the major rooms are crashed w/all the different show hosts. There are 4 days to finish. This should be fun.

  38. $25,000 says:

    Hi everybody!

    Is this where we are posting about OC?

  39. Powell says:

    What’s wrong w/Gretchen’s lips?

  40. Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

    RHOC is on…click. Time to catch up on Madmen.

  41. Powell says:

    Every time I watch OC I see why I don’t like Tamra more & more.

  42. california35 says:

    Yes ! Monday is over 🙂

    Game of thrones is great! And i love that Dragon lady is finally getting her army. I dont know who she will fight since the others are practically at war with each other.

    Nurse jacky was good last night, she made the husband think about it i. Regard with the girls.

    And that is all i watched last night. I have three shows from last night and the following from tonight.

    Sorry, no Bravo shows at the moment – but i appreciate this blog and the comments about them 🙂 its good to know whats going on without having to watch 🙂

    THANKS!! 🙂

  43. Nancy says:

    I can’t stand these “ladies”.

  44. Nancy says:

    Why is Tamera so mad at Alexis? Is it the law suit?

  45. Powell says:

    Tamra, Gretchen, Heather- BIT*HES

  46. Powell says:

    OMG Tamra! You are the biggest BIT*H.

  47. cdnfillie58 says:

    Does anyone know if Trampra did get married….she is such a sleaze bag

  48. Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

    The Voice has been a lot of fun tonight 🙂 I have decided not to roll around in the pit of RHoC which in some ways makes me sad since I was an early watcher of the first season. Seems wrong to give these women any attention. 😦

  49. boston02127 says:

    If I were Alexis, I would of done a slip n’ fall while being pushed out, and I would of left in an ambulance.

  50. melthehound says:

    Looks like I’m missing a lot on Bravo tonight 🙄

  51. boston02127 says:

    Happy Birthday AZGirl, I hope you had a great day. 🙂

  52. TexasTart says:

    Bravo’s top 10 weddings is a special on tonight….first I’ve heard of it at least.

  53. I wonder who he is talking about
    “This inability to see themselves clearly leads some cast members to think they come across as witty, charming, and intelligent. (They don’t.) That they are in control of how the viewers see them. (They aren’t.) They often don’t realize how badly they are portrayed in the show until after the season has aired. The real fun is when they come back from a season in which they realize they came across as petty and mean and shallow, then they try to change their persona to come across as calm and reasoned and wise. This always fails because they are consumed with fixing the cosmetics of their persona rather than changing from within. They blame the messenger (the show) rather than the message (they really are petty and mean and shallow). Some keep coming back with a new image, only to repeat the same demoralizing mistakes again and again. After a couple of seasons, the viewer feels guilty watching them sadly stumble around the ring like punch-drunk pugs and the producers mercifully cut them from the show.”

    • Nancy says:

      “Punch-drunk pugs?” Come again. He’s on my list now. lol

    • california35 says:

      Funny that a few ladies come to mine, but specially two. Then there are also the ones that come as nice on the first season and then change for the worst the next.

      Who wrote this ?

    • chismosa says:

      Is this by the basketball star? I still have to read
      I hope he attacks Andy at some point too. 😡😡

      • lillybee says:

        I think that Kareen is brighter than your average basketball player.

        • chismosa says:

          That’s awesome. I don’t know, I only follow the current “stars” due to who runs the tv’s and games in my house. Lol

          I just wish someone would write a real manifesto about the HWs. Like what NMD did

  54. mrspeabody says:

    OMG, just watched Orange County, what is wrong with those 3 anyway. Tamara, Gretchen and Heather are the biggest Bitches there are. I would never support a business where the owner acted the way Tamara does, I see a big fail for that business. I could not believe how those women acted, I’m speechless and I don’t even know why.

    • Nancy says:

      Run Eddie run!

    • c says:

      Well, I expect Tamrat to act like scum, she always has. But to see Heather clink wine glasses with her over insulting and screeching Alexis, is really a new low. Btw, Heather looks horrible with those black marks under her eyes. She just keeps on getting/looking uglier and uglier. (If I were Lydia, I’d be telling my mother to get another dr., asap!)

    • Vegas Chick says:

      I know. Who acts like that? Tamara was beyond anything rational. Huge anger issues with that one, for sure. Gretchen is an idiot and Heather is a bitch. What did Alexis do to these women to provoke this kind of behaviour? You would think she killed someone. Bravo has gone over the edge, and these stoopid housewives don’t have enough brains amongst them to know that they are being played the fool.

      BTW, Happy Birthday AZ Girl! Hope that it was a great day.

  55. djprincessc says:

    I HATE TAMARA SO FUCKING MUCH!!!! Please excuse my language, but I swear I would demolish her, I wish I were there to jump in for Alexis. The hatred they have for her is disgusting, especially Gretchen who used to be best friends with Alexis. I’m fuming!! lol.

  56. djprincessc says:

    what happened to my comment? Is it because I swore?? I’m sorry!! lol.

    • Nancy says:

      You’re watching OC right now right?

      • djprincessc says:

        YES!!!! I just got home and caught the last 4 minutes, I can’t believe Tamara (I mean yes I can bc it’s Tamara) but its sooooooo disgusting the way she treated Alexis and Gretchen used to be best friends with her??? What has Alexis done that is sooooo horrible?? THEY ARE JUST JEALOUS OF HER, bottom line! I wish I were Alexis, Tamara needs a HUGE reality check!!

        • Nancy says:

          It has to be for the camera. I can’t believe they would act like that if no cameras were there. Tamara is trash either way. Run Eddie run.

        • mrspeabody says:

          I agree that they are jealous of her. Regardless of what they may think of Alexis and her marriage she is happy and loves her husband and he loves her, of all the housewives she does seem to one of the few that does seem to have a strong loving marriage. YOu look at Tamara and Gretchen and I don’t think either are really that happy with where they are in life, I mean look at Tamara, she’s a bully and mean girl whose had 2 failed marriages and most likely is not going to be getting married to Eddie (I think he is taking a 2nd look at her and realizing fame is not worth being stuck with her for life). She is no longer the cute young wife she was when she first started on this show, her rotten personality has made her very ugly on both the outside and inside. Gretchen really surprises me when it comes to Alexis, how could someone who is suppose to be her friend turn so ugly toward her. Only thing I can think of is jealousy, Alexis has the marriage and family which I think is what Gretchen wants, I really wonder if she will ever have that with Slade. I just don’t understand why she hates her so much. As for Heather, she’s a bitch, bully, snob and thinks she is so much better than anyone. If she doesn’t want to be lumped in with the rest of them I suggest she stop hanging around with them, because she is also guilty by association.

          • djprincessc says:

            I couldn’t agree with you more Mrspeabody!!! They are soooo jealous or Alexis marriage, regardless if its the type of marriage they want for themselves. She’s happy, has a beautiful family and is well off. I don’t get how they don’t hate Heather when she’s a way bigger show off then Alexis, she’s just smart about how she flaunts it.

  57. BB says:

    Good morning everyone. Got up with the roosters this morning. Mom has a doctor appt and we both know it’s going to take some time to get up, get showered, get dressed, eat breakfast, take meds, do breathing treatment and get to the car! She got a fancy new walker delivered last night with wheels, breaks and a seat to sit on when she gets tired. It’s a rollater. I’m not sure she likes it because it makes her look like an “old lady.” Oh well, she’s gonna have to get over that. When she has to walk the long hall of her apartment building to get to my car, she’ll be glad she has it. If In case I don’t get back to the blog today:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY NANCY PANTS! Hope you have a memorable one.

    • butterisafruit says:

      Have a good day BB. I know it’s going to be very long for you, and your mom.
      I can appreciate every thing you say. I’ll be thinking of you. Just a little
      former caregiver advice. Sometimes it’s good to be a little deaf. You’ll know
      what I mean as time moves on, (or you may now).

  58. realhousewifeva says:

    Good Morning! I’m so glad I don’t watch OC anymore…My sister was texting me last night so pissed off over it, LOL, and I told her to TURN IT OFF. Really, television should be entertaining. I don’t mind a little fighting, gossiping, side-eye’ing, etc. but from what I’ve read this morning about OC, it’s gone too far.
    I did catch a WWHL clip online where Dr. V says the ladies acted like Bullies and it gets Tamra all upset, haha, Dr V is right, what is it about the word “bully” that bothers people so much? You CAN be an adult and be a bully, IMO.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      P.S. Tamra needs to do something with that hair of hers…45 years old with purple streaks? I just find that so childish looking. It’s something my almost 12 year old would do to her hair

      • BB says:

        Even without purple streaks, it’s not really age appropriate. Sometimes it looks like if you touched it, it would break in half like dried up hay or straw. Way over-processed.

      • TexasTart says:

        The only good part last night was when Dr V tried tell Tamra how she behaved…lol. About the hair; she said on WWHL that she went to Jac L’s hairdresser that day and the purple streaks are for autisim awareness.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Interesting how Autism awareness coincides with her desire to be an attention seeking fame ho. The purple streaks served both purposes.

    • butterisafruit says:

      I don’t watch it anymore either. Sometimes I wish I had Bravo just to see what people are talking about, however, when it comes to Tamara, I feel as though she hasn’t earned the
      right to come into my home.
      The blog postings from last night look painful.

      • BB says:

        Believe me, you’re not missing a thing by not having Bravo IMO. I would get rid of my cable, but there are channels other than Bravo I would really miss. My DD and SIL got rid of their cable and are using Netflix and other sources for their TV viewing. They may not get everything right away, but eventually they see everything they want.

        • butterisafruit says:

          I did the same thing. Netflix is wonderful, and a money saver. I couldn’t do it before because of how they (cable) package the programs. Everytime I wanted to drop something it would affect hubby’s sports or history shows. They have you right where they want you.

    • BB says:

      I’m not watching either. Last night I wasn’t even tempted to watch. You’re right. I watch TV to be entertained.

      • TexasTart says:

        Good for you, BB. I don’t have any vested interest in any of the women on this one and not.sure I want to bother after last nights specticle. I wouldn’t even know where to start with the ending of that one. Could best be described as viper pit meets sacrifical lamb (Lydia). That was wrong to put Lydia in that nasty, mean and hateful group – as her introduction?!

  59. BB says:

    Dog (not my dog) in the April snow. Is Spring/Summer ever going to get here?
