Dancing with the Stars Results by Lisette

Welcome back to the ballroom!  We start the show with a quick dance from the pros…shake shake shake senora!  The obligatory recap from last night.  Michael Buble performs Come Dance With Me.  His voice sounds different?  Or maybe I’m confusing him with Groban?  The encore performance goes to NMD’s girl Alexandra & Mark.  Looks like Aly has more fun the second time around.  First round of safe/not safe…Zendaya & Val are safe and Jacoby & Karina are in jeopardy (HUH?!).  Back from commercial and straight to round two of safe/not safe…Alexandra & Mark are safe and Ingo & Kym are in jeopardy.  AT&T spotlight dance is Tawanda Jones founder of Camden’s Sophisticated Sisters (CSS) in Camden, NJ which is a dance/drill team that encourages kids to dance and to stay on the team they must maintain above a C average.  We’re treated to a performance from her drill team and it was really good.  Again, see it online if you can.  Tom and Brooke also are donating mirrors for the studio.  During the piece Tawanda mentioned her dance space does not have mirrors because they could not afford them.  That was a nice gesture and Tawanda and the team was very moved by it.  Back from the break we have some filler from the fishbowl interviews.  Then we take a turn to Adrienne Haslett, a ballroom dancer who lost her foot in the Boston marathon bombing.  The story is about her courageous fight and how she vows to dance again with her prosthetic.  DWTS will follow her progress throughout her recovery and she will dance on the show when she is ready.  Now onto a performance for the Macy’s Stars of Dance with Allison Holker and Stephen Twitch Boss accompanied by Lindsey Stirling.  Another great performance.  Back from the break we get another performance from the troupe dancers.  Leaving the elimination for the last possible minute…Round three of safe/not safe…Sean & Peta are safe and Andy & Sharna are in jeopardy.  9:55 and they cut to commercial!  ARGH!  Back from commercial…Jacoby & Karina are safe! Andy & Sharna Ingo & Kym are the week’s bottom two.  And the eliminated couple is Andy & Sharna 😦  I hope this doesn’t hinder his recovery.  Well, that’s a wrap folks!  See you next week!

    Good morning everyone. It’s May 1st and its a very nice day. Husker I hope you don’t see the S word. 🙂

    Ladebra I’m a recovering QVC, HSN cohilic. 🙂 I love them but now just look every now and then and only 10, 15 minutes. It’s still hard especially when it’s cosmetics & bath products. You can do it! 🙂

    Have a great day everyone.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Happy rainy, sleety and SNOWY May Day! In my very many years on this wonderful earth of ours, I have NEVER seen it snow in May, but I guess we are to expect about 1/2 inch accumulation by tomorrow morning. It was almost 80 degrees yesterday and tomorrow the highs will be in the upper 30s. Cra-cra-crazy.

      I’m sitting here thinking about how I used to make May Day baskets out of Dixie cups with a pipe cleaner handle. Inside I would put M&Ms, Tootsie Rolls and popcorn. Then I would go door to door, put a basket on the porch, ring the door bell or knock and then RUN LIKE HECK trying not to get caught and then kissed! Tried to do the same with my kids when they were little, but no one else did. It’s a lost tradition here now.

      I’m just so over all of this nasty weather. My husband mowed our lawn yesterday and my lilac bush is sprouting little buds, so I’m just going to focus on the good. Happy May Day to all of the wonderful people on this board!

      • Powell says:

        Husker I’m sorry you have sleet & snow. Yuck. And your poor husband making your lawn look beautiful & now it’s covered w/snow. Well it’s Wednesday so hopefully by Saturday it will all melt away & you all can enjoy your first weekend in May w/the sun shining bright & back to 80 degress. 🙂

      • BB says:

        Ugh. I hope Spring/Summer comes soon for you.

      • TexasTart says:

        Oh no! Snow on May 1st?! Crazy! Sorry your Spring won’t stay sprung, Huskerhuny. For what it’s worth, which is no comparison to ice and snow, but this is the only time in my life, in Texas, that there is still some fleece in use and Jackets not put away. Very rare to not have that all put away by the end of March.

      • Boobah says:

        HH – That is some unbelievable weather you are having. It’s freaky. I bet you are done, done, done with the S word, as Powell called it (btw, that made me giggle Powell). Lilacs are my favorite! I hope you get to see it bloom real soon!

      • HH….that is some crazy weather and I hope it turns for you soon!!

        But I loved hearing your story of your May Day tradition. I used to love doing things like that…..but you are right….these are lost traditions and I wish we could get back to some of that community and innocence. Even welcoming new neighbors you get strange attitudes anymore. Nice to know there is a kindred spirit out there! 😀

    • Catseye says:

      I USED to be hooked on HSN and QVC, now it’s ShopNBC. They have free shipping (on their credit card) and 5 value pay offers a couple times a month. I’ve bought beautiful gold and gemstone jewelry (15yrs ago when gold wasn’t so expensive), clothes, furniture, tiffany style lamps, an exquisite wool area rug, I could go on and on…

      • BB says:

        When my mother in law was living, she was a HSN and QVC shop-a-holic. She was always ordering the newest gadgets for the home. The only trouble was, she ended up returning at least half of it and my poor hubby was always running to the post office to mail it back. Lol.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          My MIL is forever ordering stuff-the good part is she gives me most of it.-If I mention that I saw something I was thinking about getting-she orders it for me right away-very nice and generous but I have learned to not say that I want something-the poor woman will be broke if she keeps it up!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Good Morning, Powellypooh!! It’s Happy Hump Day!! and our 29th Wedding Anniversary! out to dinner tonight at one of my favorite places; Austin Land & Cattle (do you know it, Texas Tart? Not Tx Land & Cattle) ALC is on 12th (or 13th) and Lamar.

      • BB says:

        Happy Anniversary. Have fun a dinner!

      • Happy Anniversary Lainey!! Congrats on 29 years….a beautiful thing!

        So…I happened to post a funny on my humor blog today…just for you…so check it out and have a chuckle! It is at the end, you will know which one! Hugs to you! 😆

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Hi Lainey, waving hi from cyberspace! Over the moon thrilled for the success of your DD. Yes, models are people too! Happy happy anniversay. Celebrate, appreciate & congatulate yourself for reaching this milestone. I have missed chatting with you and everyone else, I try & read to keep track of everyones lives. My DD has been home & took me hostage. Someone paid my ransom since this is the first day I am not getting dragged like a rag doll all over my town. I have run into so many people & I hate people. At one point I said don’t you have friends to see & wanna get your drink on. Our weather is horrible today & its so nice to be in my spot with my two favorite sisters, caffeine & nicotine hanging with my Lynn Fam. Hugs, Lisa

        • princesspindy says:

          Hi Lisa Renee! LOL, I hate people too!!!

        • TexasTart says:

          Hi Lisa, thrilled to hear from you and look forward to reading your posts – wish I could play now. Just a lunch break and make a couple posts, will have to read and catch up later. Back to the grind 😦

        • LaineyLainey says:

          thank you, Lisa Renee!!!!! You have certainly been missed. Sounds like you’re having fun with your DD. That’s awesome, even if you don’t like all that running around and seeing people…always remember what Babs said “People who need people, are the LUCKIEST people in the world.” You must be thinking “REALLY, BABS? REALLY?!! WOULDN’T IT BE LUCKIER TO NOT need ANYONE? !!” LOL!!

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Lainey, OMG! Babs, that is to funny. When I use to start whining my mom would start to belt out Don’t rain on my parade till I would start laughing. I can see the green kitchen. As far as people who need people, suckers, every one of them. Hope you had a great celebration. 🙂 Lisa

            • LaineyLainey says:

              oH MY Gosh, the most spastic Babs song…I don’t blame you for laughing when your mom belted that one out. I have a pretty good Ethel Merman impersonation “THERE’S NOT BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS, LIKE NO BUSINESS I KNOW…..” They didn’t know Ethel but I could always bust them up with that.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                NO BUSINESS! NOT “not business” – I can’t believe I messed up my online Ethel Merman comment.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Happy 29th anniversary to you Lainey and your husband! 29 years is nothing to sneeze at and you should be really proud of that accomplishment. Something tells me that Mr. Lainey is a very lucky guy!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Thanks Husker Huny – I appreciate your kind words! Mr. L puts up with a lot, I have to say. He’s def one of the good guys.

      • princesspindy says:

      • TexasTart says:

        Congratulations to Lainey, Lainey and the Mr on 29 years of wedded bliss. Don’t worry, I won’t ask when it wasn’t blissful, ha ha, but most of us know there is a heck of a lot of compromise, ups and downs that can occur, gosh even in just a friendships alone. Hats of to you both! Now Lainey, I will just come on down and JOIN you guys tonight! 😉 Just kidding! I rarely leave the house at night, or eat out, so not much a risk of being there – but yes, I drive by that location once a month. Have not eaten there, but have been to Texas Land and Cattle. Have a good one.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          TT – thanks and yes, lots of compromise, lots of bad times with the good times…you are so right. You should have come to ALC tonight, it was so good. You need to go there sometime. It’s a bit pricier than TLC,…but their steaks (at ALC) are organic/no antibiotics/no hormones. Everything is really fresh and yummy. NO more red meat for awhile. a week or two? We should eat it less than that but my hubs loves to eat tacos.

      • djprincessc says:

        Happy Anniversary Lainey!!! I love hearing about couples that have lasted for years! My parents are 31 years! Enjoy your special day!! ❤ xo!

  2. BB says:

    Good morning all! Another drizzly, rainy, blah day in southeast Virginia today. But at least it’s not that cold!

    • TexasTart says:

      How’s your mother doing? How much time are you spending with her per day?

      • BB says:

        She’s back at her house and has spent the last two nights by herself. I go over at least once a day to make sure she’s eating enough (taking her some soup today) and doing her laundry, taking out her trash, doing the heavy lifting. It’s a relief to both of us to kind of be back to normal, although she still will get up and do something, then gets tired and lies down for awhile. She has a ways to go before she’s back to full speed. Thanks for asking.

        • TexasTart says:

          That’s great news, BB! Things are progressing as you hoped and you are both getting more of your usual daily life back. I hope she will continue to get stronger. 🙂

          • BB says:

            I’m glad we decided for her not to go to rehab. I have a feeling she would still be spending most of her time either in bed or in a wheel chair. They only do rehab for 3 hours a day. The rest of the time, pretty much nothing but sitting/laying around. You wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve heard of elderly people falling and injuring themselves while in rehab. I’m sure there are some wonderful rehab places, but my experience/knowledge of them hasn’t been that great.

            • Catseye says:

              So true. And being at home in your own familiar space is much more healing, than some institution. I’m glad to hear things are getting back to normal for you guys.

            • Lisa Renee says:

              Morning NanaBB, I haven’t commented but I was thrilled you went with plan B and brought your mom home. I just kept thinking about the germs & you having to get dressed for public consumption. You have been beyond busy. Lisa

            • BB~ She will do much better at home as you are seeing. I’m so happy to see she’s letting you assist her and you’re letting her do her own thing too.
              She’ll be doing more and more sooner rather than later. I’m with you 100% on how those rehabs can be lax in how they care for people.
              Hugs!!!
              Diana

        • AZGirl says:

          You are a wonderful daughter!

        • Powell says:

          That’s fantastic. She’s getting better day by day & you are getting back to your life day by day. It’s going to be a great rest of the Spring & Summer. 🙂

  3. TexasTart says:

    Good Morning … hope your computer is coming together NMD. Myworld goes completely upside down if I crash…might as well be my brain crashing, lol.

    MTH – left you a post in the last blog.

    Thanks to Lisette for covering DWTS for us!

    • melthehound says:

      Got it TexasT 😀 I agree with you, at least can the backstories until the real contestants are revealed (on all of these comp shows).

  4. BB says:

    Thanks for the DWTS results Lisette. Kind of sorry to see Andy go. Of course, he wasn’t the best dancer by far, but at least he was entertaining. I hope he stays sober and finds work because I do think he’s talented.

    • Powell says:

      I’m happy for Andy that he went this far. I think it has helped boost his confidence in himself. I hope he continues on, this positive path. There is a comedy prank show coming on TBS I think w/actor Donald Faison as the host & Andy is on the first or one of the first epis. It’s good he’s getting more jobs also. He was on GMA this morning and they had a tape of his kids saying how proud they were of him. I didn’t realize he’s kids were as old as they are, about 16-18. The last I saw his son was a little boy. If time flew by for me I can’t imagine how its been for him since he was abusing substances throughout his kids lives & has missed some of their lives.

      • I agree Powell & BB. When he was at his worst, he was terrible…but I do not think he is innately a bad person. When he is himself…he is funny and charming. I also hope he stays on the positive path and lives out a good life.

        Yikes on time passing! *Sticks fingers in ears so I can’t hear*…la la la la la la 😛

    • cocfarm says:

      I was proud of him. I sound silly saying that but he gracious. I hope he stays on the right path.

      Okay, so Sean or ingo….which goes next?!

  5. BB says:

    There’s an article on People.com that Bethenny is surprised her divorce is not amicable. She’s kidding, right?

    • BB says:

      By that I mean I think Bethenny expected she was going to call the shots and Jason would pretty much go along with it. I think she’s surprised he’s not.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        There is really only one loser in this mess and that’s Bryn. That Jason is not laying down and letting Bethenny call the shots doesn’t surprise me and I’m glad he’s fighting for his rights. But at the risk of Bryn being caught in the middle scares me. My love for Bethenny (and it was quite a lot) has dipped considerably. Probably won’t watch her talk show now.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Haha…you got it. Everything’s amicable for Bethenny if everyone does what she says. LOL! Good one, Beebs

    • Cartwheels says:

      I don’t think she is kidding. I really think that she thought they could work things out before anything getting ugly.

      Most couples when they are married and imn good spirits talk about “what ifs” and I am sure that Bethenny and Jason had talked about how would they handled the divorce if it happened and both probably commented on how they would do it amicable so they can co-parent Bryn, but as it turns out divorce are most of the times a nasty business.

      Being that Jason has always portaryed himself as this outstanding guy who looked at Bethenny’s money and success sideways, I think it is a surprisefor her that he is fighting so hard to get as much money out of the divorce as he possible can.

      • BB says:

        I’ve been married for 40 years this July and my husband and I have never discussed the “what ifs” regarding divorce, not even jokingly. I definitely don’t see the Bethenny/Jason divorce the same as you but that’s OK and, up until this event, I have always been an admirer of Bethenny’s. None of us really knows what has gone on behind closed doors.

        • Cartwheels says:

          I had that conversation with my ex-husband this several times while we were married and we both agreed that if the moment came where we would had to get divorced, then we would put our child’s best interest and heart and tried to be what was best for her so we could be civil to each other, alas it didn’t work out like that.
          He fought me tooth and nails every step of the way, we could have had an amicable resolution but he was bound and determined not to give me the divorce even though he was the one who stepped out. I thought he would be happy to be free and go about his life but he decided to fight me for the house that my parents had given me as a gift. He wanted half of it.
          My only saving grace was that my parents gave me the house as part of my inheritance and that made the property not to be a marriage property but it took me a couple of years and countless amount of money to get divorce , under regular circunstances my divorce would had cost little and take no time. This only created a hostile enviroment between us and made parenting very difficult, time heals all wounds and now few years later we finally can be in the same room and be civil towards each other but it has been a long road to
          get to this point.

          • BB says:

            That’s terrible. Why do you think he did that (fought the divorce) when he was the one who stepped out?

            • Cartwheels says:

              He really thought that I would turn an eye on his behavior and would end up forgiving him, when he realized that I wouldn’t then he got mad, really mad. He was as funny as to tell the judge that he didn’t want to divorce and if we could be court ordered to attend couples’ counseling, the judge look at me and my answer was “Should his pregnant mistress come along with us?” , the judge denied his request and we moved forward with the divorce. Because of the house I had to go through a financial inspection and that can take a while. It is not how I imagined it would be at all.

              • cocfarm says:

                WOW WOW WOW. So glad you survived and stuck to your guns. Sounds like you had married a narcisist. Congrats on making it through.

              • lizzle says:

                Sorry about your situation Cartwheels. I disagree with you on Bethenny, but because you were on the inside of your own relationship… I can’t believe what you went through. People constantly amaze me… some in good ways… but in your case, your ex amazes me in a bad way. I can’t imagine dividing up my life like that… going through material items must have taken an emotional toll.. because there is some sort of emotional connection to many material items.

                In Brandi’s book, she talks about going through the house to divide every single little piece of property. Eddie ended up with an old car that Brandi’s dad had given them. Brandi eventually just had to let it go and honestly, I was surprised that it wouldn’t automatically be Brandi’s property. I was suprised at how angry Eddie seemed about the divorce, because he was the one who couldn’t let go of Leann. It’s crazy thinking. It is like he wanted his wife and the mistress.

                • Cartwheels says:

                  I don’t think he wanted his wife and his mistress, I think these narcisistic pricks just can’t fanthom for a second that somebody would want to get away from them, if their mind they are a gift from heaven and can’t figure why the rest doesn’t realize that.

              • BB says:

                Wowsers! Sorry you had to go through all that.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                I love your quick comeback. A-hole had some kinda nerve.

                • Cartwheels says:

                  LOL,
                  I can laugh now but at the time being I was too hurt ot find it funny.

          • AZGirl says:

            I am sorry you had to go through that. Your parents were very wise in putting that house as your sole and separate property. I think that there is something about men and women going through a mid-life crises. They feel their mortality and think the grass is greener but once they stray they are still not happy. Of course that is not the case with B and J. I think that B and J were doomed from the beginning.

            • Cartwheels says:

              I actually don’t think that my ex wanted to leave my and my child homeless, I think he was using the house as leverage so I would eventually give up and ended up taking him back but he went about it the wrong way. It got me questioning all his motives and the picture that I saw was not pretty.

              • “As God is my witness”…and being in the profession of understanding human behavior….I still have difficulty understanding how a man can have a pregnant mistress and still want to stay married with a wife and expect her to accept it all, and still love him and want to be with him. That is some deep dysfunction. You are a warrior spirit Cartwheels….and I honor you for standing up for yourself and being firm on what is right for you and your true life!! I am sorry you had to go through that….but I would guess you learned a lot about yourself and are far stronger and sure of yourself and your life now. Life lessons can be so very hard. My heart goes out to you….and Hugs as well!

                • Cartwheels says:

                  as the song goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and that is just the case.

        • pat says:

          WOW, congrats on 40 years, BB!! Very impressive these days. My parents have both been married over 30 years now… To their second spouses. 🙂

        • LaineyLainey says:

          49 years!!! yeah, baby! Are you guys gonna do something special?

      • pat says:

        I could not agree with you more, Cartwheels. Like most everyone else, Bethenny fell for the public, Mr. Nice Guy Jason.

        • Cartwheels says:

          Maybe that is the reason why I am myopic about Jason, my husband was so much like him it is eerie, he was charming and handsome, he was Mr. nice and my friends and family’s first reaction to the news of separation were first on unbelief and that the question, what is wrong with you? he is such a great guy. At the time I thought things would be friendly so I didn’t want to bash him and put my private life out there for gossip so I didn’t disclosed his affair.
          I now all about mr. nice and how deceiving looks can be.

    • Powell says:

      Come on. Where has she been the last 40 yrs? She’s a celeb & there’s huge amounts of money. I don’t recall a celeb divorce that was amicable. She has to realize that she wanted to do BEA, not Jason. She talked him into it & he lost his privacy. She’s the one that wanted him to work w/her, he didn’t want to. She talked him into it. So he gave up a lot. If she thought the divorce was going to be a walk in the park she was mistaken. I like B & think she’s a smart lady but I can’t believe she was so naive.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I am not buying the part of the privacy with Jason, he approached her as she was shooting a promo for her cocktails, cameras where on her, lights were on her, he knew what he was getting himself into. not only that but he was on RHNY season 3, and he was on three seasons on Bethenny’s spin off and never seemed to have a problem (except in the last season). Jason could be as unfiltered as Bethenny in the show so I am just not buying that he wanted to be a private person.

        As far as Jason giving up a lot, I don’t even know how to say this delicately but Jason (monetarily speaking) is the one who will be making a killing with the divorce, he will get much more money than he could had possibly make on his own so I don’t see him as a loser in any of this.

        Bethenny was not naive, she was simply stupid. She believed that Jason would not fight her for money and there he is , just a mere mortal like any regular Joe, fighting for every penny he can get his hands on.

        • BB says:

          The only loser in this will be Bryn. 😦

          • Cartwheels says:

            I really don’t think so. Children are very resilient and I do think that Bethenny and jason finally will come to terms with that.
            I foresee a custody agreement that gives them almost equal time so in the end Bryn could potentially end up with the best of both worlds.

            • lizzle says:

              I used to want my parents to divorce. I was jealous of my divorced friends who had two houses, two dads, two moms… which equalled 4 present givers around birthdays and Christmas. Divorce seems to be the social norm. I also wanted braces and glasses too! I didn’t receive any of it.

      • pat says:

        Bethenny wanted Jason to make a decision about working with her, and in an interview on the show he said he wanted to be her equal partner in the biz, not an employee. That’s why he was dragging his feet. She wouldn’g make him a partner. It would have been stupid for them to work together, either way. He had a chip on his shoulder from the get-to, because he didn’t want the prenup. I’ve seen it many, many times. The time to get the prenup is when things are GOOD. Because divorce almost always gets ugly.

        • Cartwheels says:

          In lieu of all that has happened I think David Kanbar was the first one who saw that maybe Jason’s intentions were not all that pure and that is why she so strongly requested that Bethenny protected the assets of SGC in her prenup. Jason whined until Bethenny agreed to modified the prenup and curiously after that she modified the prenup, he changed a lot.

          I am not saying Bethenny is innocent but I am just not buying Jason’s pure love and intentions anymore. Now he is even fussing for a computer that he can buy for less than 1K but doesn’t see anything wrong with fighting for an apartment valued in 5M.

          Divorce is most of the times ugly but in this case I am afraid to think what would had happened if bethenny didn’t have a prenup.

        • iceNfire says:

          I agree with Jason “had a chip on his shoulder from the get-to” The scene where is is all down and out because B ” made it” and he didn’t was telling. That he thought he should be an equal partner is just ridiculous. Skinny Girl is all B and so is that apartment (maybe it’s Jim Bean’s) still…Jason needs to move out to keep the tension away from Bryn. – imo

            We must have been watcing a different show. Lol!

          • Cartwheels says:

            I don’t think Jason had a chip on his shoulder from the get go. I saw him change quickly from season 2 of BEA to season 3, curiously the first episode of Bea last season opened with Bethenny and Jason talking about the modification of the prenup. I saw a deep change in Jason after that.

    • Lulu says:

      That idiot has another thing coming if she thinks she can take Jason. How quickly she forgot that he is a brilliant businessman. If it wasn’t for him she would still be printing her *cough* (Alex’s) “Skinny girl” logo from Chinatown. She’s only good at being a hustler good luck trying that strategy in the courtroom.

      • Lulu says:

        Another funny point:

        Skinny girl margarita wasn’t her idea I don’t remember the name of the restaurant/bar? that are the original creators of it.

        Branding by Alex

        The real business deals: Jason and her business partner

        A place of yes– read Dr Wayne Dyer’s books any of them pure rip off of his ideas/work

      • ladebra says:

        I have to disagree with you view of Jason. But I think there are plenty of people that see the situation your way. I agree with Cartwheels, and I am sure my life experiences influence my opinion. When I heard Jason say to her ” you will end up alone and unloved; you are damaged” that did it for me. I think Jason is not a nice person.

        • melthehound says:

          He gave her the brutal truth that she was asking for.

          • ladebra says:

            Ok, again, my opinion is probably influenced by my experience, but what I took away from that was she shared an insecurity with him, in a moment that made her vulnerable, and that’s what you do with people you love. And then he threw it in her face when they were arguing. That is not a nice thing to do. And to me, it speaks volumes.

            • melthehound says:

              I don’t have the experience with marriage any of you have. Never been, likely never will be so I won’t attempt to debate what it is like. All I’m saying is she continuously badgered him about his feelings (ask any man how comfortable they are about that, and on camera no less) and he gave her an answer. Was it kind? No. Was it correct? Time will tell. If I remember correctly this was before the were to board a helicopter on some therapy weekend getaway on a boat with her TV Shrink. That he didn’t want to attend, again, I’m sure with cameras tagging along for some dumbass TV show. To me, she always seemed upset that he isn’t as screwed up as she is. She set out to show the world how messed up the golden boy really is (remember most, thought he was perfect). Just like every other part of her recent life she chose to make this divorce public fodder.

              Now. Even though it may seem so, I’m not picking sides here. They are equally at fault but I think she has a lot of nerve being offended that he isn’t just laying down and rolling over so she can have her way. That, IMO, is what this is really all about. Someone said no to Ms Bethenny and she can’t handle it. You mentioned Cartwheels’ story. I read her story and her ex was exactly the same way it seems. Wanted to have his cake and eat it too. When she wouldn’t roll over and play the dead so he could, things got nasty. I really don’t want to fight with any of you ladies about this. It’s just that I am so tired of Bethenny Frankle and her publicity stunts. Talk show coming up? Perhaps a new reality show too? BGD – Bethenny Getting Divorced… There is nothing that woman says or does that we see, that is accidental.

              • iceNfire says:

                Hi Mel – about the only thing I agree with you on this subject is that I don’t want to fight about it either. This topic has really pushed a lot of buttons 🙂

              • ladebra says:

                I don’t want to fight 🙂 and I respect your view point. We just disagree. I’m not a big B supporter. But I don’t think Jason is a nice person to fling out insecurities in the heat of anger. But he’s not the first and won’t be the last. Thanks for the discussion Mel 🙂

              • melthehound says:

                😀 .

                • Contessa says:

                  My opinion of bethenny and jason is on the side of Mel/Jeff. I know that Jason’s statement was raw and hurtful…but Bethenny rehashes everything and it goes on and on. She is a professional therapy junkie. What I learned through my divorce and life choices is that couples need quiet time to digest issues…you cannot keep bringing stuff up, just because it didn’t end to your satisfaction (us old timers understand the art of compromise in marriage,love, family and friendships). Add in the craziness of her office being in the house with 2-3 other women, a new baby, a nanny, a husband, and branding and growing that business. That apartment was way too small for all of that going on. I work from home and need absolute quiet to do my job, and many times that apartment reminded me of a zoo – once again no quiet time for reflection. Going back to Jason’s comment, please remember Bethenny is the queen of one line zingers. I feel she hated the public liking/loving Jason and being on his side. I truly am sorry their marriage failed, and we truly don’t know them behind closed doors. However I do believe Jason and her original partner had a lot to do with the big contract and I believe under the circumstances he should get paid for that, and get some of the proceeds. I also believe it should be shared custody, as Bryn will have a taste of middle class normalcy with Jason and his parents (who appeared very salt of the earth type people). Bethenny, of course loves her daughter just as much, but I think it will be a different life style with her. The main consideration for them going forward should be their daughter, but with lawyers and money being involved this will drag out big time. By the way I was a Bethenny supporter, as I loved her scrappy fight to the top, but with her faithful assistant leaving, it gave me a different pov and I started to look at her differently when she began to speak a bit disparagingly about her. That woman should have had title and power to be a VP and not in name only. She is also on the news a lot and I think that has a lot to do with her upcoming show, as Bethenny truly get publicity.

              • Lulu says:

                Good point and well put Mel!

                • BB says:

                  ITA 😀 And even though I don’t agree, I respect everyone’s opinion and their right to say it. Lol.

          • iceNfire says:

            There has been times my husband told me what I wanted to hear. This allowed me time to reflect on my stand and change my mind (on occasion) without causing hurt feelings. …could be a factor in why we never divorced 🙂

          • Sus says:

            The truth hurts. I thought it was a terrible thing to say on camera but very accurate.

        • iceNfire says:

          I’m with ladebra and cartwheels! Though I’ve never been divorced I can spot a husband treating his wife poorly…my heart ached for B

        • BB says:

          Um, when did he say the part about her being like her mother and would end up alone (if she didn’t change)? Oh, you mean the story on Radaronline and the unnamed source who said Jason said that? And he agreed with Bethenny herself when he said she was damaged. Please correct me if I’m mistaken.

          • ladebra says:

            I remember a conversation with her therapist where B was upset and relating to him the conversation and letting the therapist know it hurt her.

          • iceNfire says:

            Hi BB – It was a terrible thing for him to say to her whether he was just repeating what she had said in the first place or not -imo-….we all seem to have very strong feelings on this subject and we don’t even know the half of it

            • BB says:

              I’m not losing any sleep over it or really don’t feel that passionate about it; just calling it like I see it and I was along-time B fan from the get go. I’m sure they both contributed to the demise of their marriage. Like AZ, I think it was doomed from the start. I don’t think Bethenny has what it takes to be in a long term committed relationship as long as she is the way she is. I don’t think she wants to change and she shouldn’t have to if she doesn’t want to. I think being in a relationship with her would be exhaustiing and impossible to maintain for an extended period of time. I think that’s why Julie finally left. JMO.

              • iceNfire says:

                Now you sound like Ramona on the bridge 😛 😛 😛

              • ladebra says:

                Totally with you BB in that B has ginormous trust issues and a relationship would be exhausting.

                • Powell says:

                  I know that it all stems from her mom, dad, stepdads. She’s been in therapy for yrs. I don’t understand why she hasn’t learned that Bethenny the child was dealt that life & B the adult doesn’t have to hold onto that baggage & she should have learned lessons of how not to screw up her daughter. If she would live that way today I think she would be happy & could find the right man to be in her life for the long haul.

              • pat says:

                I agree that for most men, a relationship with B would be totally exhausting, not to mention emasculating. But I think she will find true love. She needs someone who has his own success, and who doesn’t take himself too seriously.

                • Powell says:

                  There are so many women who are at the top in biz & their husbands/BF have ordinary jobs. Look at the world if fashion. Most at the top are women. If there husbands/BF can’t deal w/powerful money making wives/GF then to me that’s their problem. What are these women suppose to do be less successful & make less money to soothe the man in their lives ego? I say hell no.

                • Powell says:

                  And these same men don’t have a problem spending the money or enjoying the perks. And then if it comes down to a divorce they are fighting to get what they feel is their fare share.

              • Contessa says:

                BB- I am with you, Ihad some humdinger fights with both of my husbands and we each said some nasty things in the heat of the moment. I was only divorced once, and when that marriage was going to hell the words were bitter and very hurtful. I now see (as I did 3-4 years into the marriage) it was a bad choice for both of us. We had different needs, different pov and I also married someone that was emotionally stunted and a very spoiled mama’s boy. Either way I understand people saying things that are hurtful and in the scenario of bethenny and jason’s marriage I have no doubt Bethenny gave just as good as she got. So I cannot say he was necessarily cruel, as we all know Bethenny can cut glass with her remarks. Julie was with her from the beginning, and I never felt like Julie got the respect she should have gotten with title, money, and power in the company. A good business owner rewards and delegates with trust and guidance. Bethenny was kind of mean about Julie and said some things that were pure mean about her work. I agree with you and AZ, it was kind of doomed from the start, and the exhiliration of new love and pregnancy guided them into a doomed marriage way too soon, without really discovering who they are long term.

          • Cartwheels says:

            That conversation happened directly between Bethenny and Jason when they were about to board the helicopter for the boat ride. Bethenny told Jason that what he said “you are damaged and you will end up alone” and that this words deeply hurt her , Jason never denied it or called her crazy, he was only worried that he didn’t want to talk about it in front of the cameras as Bethenny kept talking he said he was done and walked away.

        • Powell says:

          Very Crappy of him. Jason could use some therapy also.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I am sorry but that is not truth and Jason had nothing with do with the succes of SGC.

        Bethenny never met Jason until the end of 2008 and they never starting dating seriuously until May of 2009. RHNY season 2 was taped between August and November of 2008, at Jill’s charity event , Bethenny had already create, produced, bottled and had a small distribution deal and was heavily promoting on the show. She met David Kanbar in August 2008 (per lawsuit) and he came with the mission to shop around for a potential buyer, all this happened before Bethenny ever met Jason.

        Jason might had been there for the last part and where they closed the deal but he certainly has nothing to do with all the previous stages. Beam didn’t decide to buy SGC from nowhere, Bethenny had already proved the viability of the product and thta is why they bought it.

        Bethenny was dumb to modify the prenup, she should have stuck to her guns.

        • Lulu says:

          She did shop around for buyers prior to Jason. No one was interested. It wasn’t until Jason was in the picture that he was the final driving force that led her to the huge deal. He’s a very well established businessman with lots of contacts. Of which Bethenny obviously benefited from.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Lulu-while it is a known fact that Jason was with her during her Beam dealings-SG was Bethennys thing. I think it would have gotten bought and had distributed by Beam no matter who she married. She shopped it around forever and they all said no-every liquor distributor said no-at that time.. If Jason helped get the Beam deal it says more about liquor companies not wanting to be in business with women than it say about Jason’s contacts. If Jason was such a successful businessman why was he so lost and unfocused about his career later on? I don’t think he was the driving force behind the deal-I think he was “any man”. Bethenny had a business partner who I believe would have landed the deal for her even without Jason.
            I think Bethenny is very driven and I think that drive scared the crap out of Jason-she has a spark and he kind of fizzles-that’s the way it goes-but it’s usually the other way around.

            • pat says:

              Yes, he called himself a “failure” career-wise. He still didn’t know what he wanted to do with himself. And he said he always thought he would be the one bringing home the bacon and having the career when married. But it was bethenny doing that and he struggled with how that made him feel.

              • Powell says:

                Well then #1 he picked the wrong woman to marry & #2 even more reason that he should have seen a therapist.

            • Powell says:

              I don’t think he helped her shop for a deal. What he did do was straighten out the bottling/manufacturing. Remember a liquor store in her neighborhood the owner said they couldn’t get shipments? Jason found out what the problem was & determined how to correct it.

          • Cartwheels says:

            The SGC deal was in the makings and was going to happen with Jason or without Jason. Jason had little to do with it, the force behind this was David Kanbar a very well known investor in the alcohol industry. Jason was not there with Bethenny all the years that she walked around offering her products to other companies, Jason in not who closse the deal with a small distribution company, that was Bethenny by herself, Jason only helped her to figure out why they were not able to supply due to the increasing demand. Even for the final sale to Beam, Jason had nothing to do with it, the one who negotiated it all was David , if anything Jason was only moral support.
            I am sure that this is why Kanbar insisted so much on Betheny protecting the assets and present and future holds of the company on her prenup, it was at his insistence that Bethenny made Jason sign it and there are articles that have stated that Jason didn’t want to sign it and he did it only five days before the wedding or Bethenny was calling the wedding off. I think the prenup became a very contencious point between Bethenny and Jason and the fact that he insisted so much to have it modified must have been a turning point in their relationship.

            • Jason appears to be a Nice Guy™ to me. And um…. that’s not a compliment. Read this website for more info about the problem with Nice Guys™ http://www.heartless-bitches.com/rants/niceguys/ng.shtml – it’s pretty awesome.

              • iceNfire says:

                Good Link! Thanks Brigid 🙂

              • Powell says:

                Brigid, ice did you see that line? “Whether it is targeting women who are troubled to begin with”. Who does that sound like Jason targeted?

              • Cartwheels says:

                OMG, thanks for the link

                the WORST kind of predator – one who is manipulative and self-serving. Whether it is targeting women who are troubled to begin with, setting themselves up to be taken advantage of, or acting in a manipulative, patronizing or obsequious fashion

                Wasn’t Jason the one who made a line bee to meet Bethenny?
                Wasn’t Jason the one who pursued Bethenny relentlessly until she accepted to date him exclusively?
                Wasn’t Jason the one who proposed that they live together (we saw that actually)
                Wasn’t Jason the one who suggested they stop with birth control and see what happens?
                Wasn’t Jason the one who insisted they get married before the baby was born when Bethenny wanted to wait until after the delivery?

                Uhmmmmmm

          • missusmc says:

            He was a pharmaceutical sales rep. He sold to ospitals and doctors offices, not alcohol companies. I highly doubt he introduced Jim Beam to Bethenny.

    • missusmc says:

      I don’t think Bethenny is bad. I don’t think Jason is bad. I think they were both very broken people (as we all are) going into the marriage, and I think they did discuss divorce and what they would do in that case and perhaps things aren’t going as well as they thought it would have. I imagine divorce can be quite ugly. Jason is “damaged” too, you know. He has spent his entire adulthood trying to be Mr. Perfect and overcompensate for his deceased brother. And we all know Bethenny’s issues. I think they both thought they could “fix” each other, and marriage doesn’t work that way. I do hope they come to an amicable agreement for Bryn, and I do hope that Jason stops wearing his wedding band so the paparazzi will take his picture. I am very quick to judge reality stars, but in this case, I just feel sad. Divorce is hard. Broken people just want a happy ending. The entire situation is sad.

      • pat says:

        Very well said. Totally agree.

      • Powell says:

        And that’s where I think they went wrong. Bethenny knew/knows she has problems, Jason has problems & doesn’t want to admit he does. To me Jason was living his life & his brother’s life for his parents. Not that his parents requested or required it but Jason feeling he had to fill the void because his brother is no longer there. He went home every weekend. It walike if his brother was alive they would have visited their parents on alternative weekends. Then he marries a woman who has not been home since she was 15/16 yrs old & he expects her to climb aboard the Pennsylvania train every weekend & when she says I can’t do that. It’s smothering to me. He thinks she’s crazy. She throws him a fantastic BD party w/his friends & thks her by saying ” you should have invited my parents”. He just saw his parents. W TF?
        B & J should have been single co-parents to Bryn , not lived together, continued dating or not & they would not be where they are now.

        • missusmc says:

          I think they thought that marriage would “fix” their brokenness. I think it’s a pretty common misconception. Just sad all around.

        • Cartwheels says:

          Remember Bethenny didn’t want to get married, she wanted to wait until after Bryn was born but Jason insisted. Jason also insisted on having the big wedding when Bethenny only wanted a small ceremony with friends and family.
          For somebody who values his privacy so much as he says he does, Jason seems to like his share of the spotlight but only when it is a guarantee that he will be the perfect picture kind of guy.

          • Contessa says:

            Cartwheels, I didn’t know that – that is a wow.

            Want to say I have tremendous admiration for you going through your divorce with the narcissist asswipe. A cheater breaks you down and than enter gf (in this case pregnant) whispering you need everything, you deserve everything, blah, blah, blah). Been there, done that and it is exhausting,, humiliating and heartbreaking. However once you get out of the fog of it all, you almost feel cleansed and you finally being to see the sunlight again. You sound so strong and wonderful and very smart! My admiration, XXOO

            • Cartwheels says:

              awww , that is so nice of you. I agree, it is exhausting and at the time being it feels like the consuming pain will never go away , but like you said, there is light and the end of the tunnel and I have found it in spades, my husband is not only my best friend but my soul mate all wrapped in one and I am glad that I went through all that just to find him.

              • Contessa says:

                Once again you are a pretty awesome woman!!!! I am so happy you remarried and are in such a wonderful place. My ex cheated, but no pregnancy, I got the house and “everything” as he said. The everything was a house with a manageable mortgage, but the clincher was he gambled and used our home equity loan for his funds, and that was a lot higher than the mortgage. He also left me the business, he was my partner, and the business had no clients – LOL…I was lucky and landed a long term client for 3 years. I was kind of stupid and stunned about everything and should have sold that house at that point, but then the market fell and I had to short sell. Either way I lived in a rental for awhile, went back to corporate world, and now have a lovely house I can manage. My pain was compounded by the fact that my father was dying during this time and I was flying back and forth from AZ to Chicago. Looking back my path was much easier, as I did not have children, and the paperwork was easier, so I understand your pain and all that you lived through and am now totally uplifted to where you are in your life!!!!!!

  6. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Beautiful morning here in AZ. Cooling down this week and the high’s are in the mid 90’s. I know many of you have had a long terrible winter and are getting snow today. I am sending you some sunshine via this board.
    Just remember in a few weeks I will be closing up my windows and shades and turning on the A/C until October. 🙂 Living in a summer cocoon.

    Rewatched OC again and I like Lydia. Early still to know what her intentions are. She is right about Alexis letting Tamara, Gretchen and Heather controlling her. They are still all vile. Tamara especially. Simon is probably so glad to be free from that woman. Poor Eddie.

    • BB says:

      Poor Eddie nothing. Nobody’s forcing him to marry that shrew. Oops. I said I was going to stop talking about them. Lol.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Hi AZGirl, I just watched OC this morning, way behind with DD home. Poor Eddie is right, I know love is blind but it had to be deaf & dumb also to get a man(?) to put a ring on Tamara. I refuse to acknowledge the “bullying”. I did shock my family and got my hair cut like Alexis. Everyone loved it & it’s so cute there is no living with me. Alls I know this cut better not grow back in where I have to wear a stupid looking headwrap with a friggin flower on it. I am not loving Ryan’s attitude at all. Little to big for his britches for my taste. Take your 1K and find a home that size for that price in that neighborhood or STFU. I had to move home after DD’s dad passed away. I was so grateful for the support I can’t imagine dictating anything in my mothers home. I’m not sure about Lydia. She maybe well off but she is unfortunate looking, bless her heart. I hope someone loves her enough to tell her to never do the bird wing arm flap thing ever again in life. From what I read all seems well on your homefront 🙂 Lisa

      • AZGirl says:

        Ha! Lydia is “unfortunate looking”. I think Lydia is “natural” as opposed to the rest of those ridiculous women so I find her refreshing. Alexis did look fantastic on WWHL Monday night. I think she is the prettiest of all of them and that is why they hate her.

        • BB says:

          I agree that Alexis is the prettiest of the OC ladies, even if it’s not all “natural.”

        • Powell says:

          I think that’s part of the reason why Tamra hates her. I don’t think Gretchen & Heather ever hated her. I think they just followed the leader & took their place as Curly & Moe to Tamra’s Larry.

          • BB says:

            Powell, I think Tamra is Moe, Heather is Larry and Grethen is Curly.

          • missusmc says:

            Alexis is gorgeous. After Cynthia in Atlanta, I’d say she is the prettiest of all the housewives in any city. I think Tamra may be jealous (because she’s not only pretty; she’s tall. As a short woman myself, it’s hard not to be jealous of tall women!) and maybe Gretchen, too, because Gretchen likes the attention, but I have a hard time believing Heather is jealous of Alexis. She looks down on her and is probably just annoyed that someone “so dumb” (in her opinion) is so pretty.

            • Powell says:

              I’m short & never have wanted to be tall & never have been jealous of my tall friends.

              • missusmc says:

                I’m not saying Tamras jealousy is ok. I’m just saying that I’ve always wanted the long, long legs that my bestie has. The guys I knew before I got married preferred tall girls, too.

        • Lisa Renee says:

          AZGirl, I also think Alexis is a very pretty woman, I thought she looked great before she had her nose done. My love for her haircut threw me for a loop. I don’t relate to her on any level but a great haircut is common ground for women wether they like each other or not. I agree that Lydia is natural, naturally unfortunate. Lisa

      • Powell says:

        I love,Alexis’ hair cut. I bet you look fantastic! 🙂 Did you tell your family “don’t hate me because I’m beautiful”? 😀

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Hi Powell, If I ever called myself beautiful my family would think it was invasion of the body snatcher time. I am very hard on myself, but I will concede I have spectacular hair 🙂 Lisa

        • kit9 says:

          Agree! Alexis’ haircut looks so much chicer than the standard, Bravo issued long large curled helmet that nearly every HW has…or worse, Gretchen’s awful dated pageant hair.

          • missusmc says:

            I think the stringy haired New York ladies could use a shorter haircut, too.

      • ladebra says:

        Love Alexis’ haircut and she really looked great the last few times I’ve seen her on camera. In fact, I am contemplating a facelift, and I’m going to look up and research the plastic surgeon she went to. I’ve got the month of May where I don’t have to “face” anyone, and I am thinking this is a perfect time to get everything lifted.

        • BB says:

          Go for it.

          • ladebra says:

            I’m thinking I should, but it takes me forever to go to a Dr. I started telling myself I had to get a colonoscopy in Jan, and I have an appt in June. I procrastinate 😦 and not too fond of hospitals.

            • Lisa Renee says:

              Ladebra, ITA! Go for it. I’m having a major chemical peel in 2 weeks and then I have to figure out what I am going to do with this insanity going on under my chin. My mom had a full facelift at 49 y.o. It looked amazing & natural the rest of her life. No botox or filler & never touched her lips. I can’t do surgery till I put down the cigs. No doctor worth his/her salt would touch me if I am still smoking. It’s my motivation because I want everything I own lifted to a higher tax bracket, Lisa

              • ladebra says:

                I’m really really thinking I will. I’m 62, and will be getting back in the job market in July. I want my neck and jowls gone, so I am also looking into a Lifestyle lift. I lost a good amount of weight last year and it just made the situation worse. My mom had a full lift done at 57 and she said she would do it again in a heartbeat! Thanks you guys for the encouragement! I just need to do some research and talk to some referrals.

                • Powell says:

                  LOL Ladebra I was going to say to you & Lisa if you’ve heard about the Life Style lift. My mom is interested in that. She called to get info to see if they would mail her something but, they want her to come in. The closest office is in VA & my mom doesn’t like driving out there & neither do I. We’ll find someone in our area.

                • Contessa says:

                  Ladebra, and all, I had my eyes done when I was 53 – they were heavily hooded and you could barely see that I was wearing shadow. It was an in and out procedure done in the doctors operating room at her office. I did look awful coming home post surgery,but the next day the bandages came off and in two weeks the change was amazing. I am on a weight loss thing right and will have to quit smoking,but I want some sort of face thing or a
                  neck to get rid of the jowls – they are scary. La – take a look at the work done by Maloof’s ex – he did a great job on Mauricio’s mom – she looks remarkable. Please do some research on the Lifestyle life – I read (in the past) they don’t last. Also research, research, research any doctor you choose to go – his/her credentials, before and after photos, ask to speak to his patients, is the work done in a hospital or operating facility. Also a friend had a facelift here in Az and the doctor had his own facility attached to his office (fully accredited) – it was wonderful as the price included a two night stay. This is what I would now – a two night stay for a face lift, because you do look icky, and they know how to care for you and you are supposed to sleep in an elevated position. Also if there are drains it is easier to have a professional drain them. Just some of my observations as we are both contemplating this. XXOO

          • Powell says:

            That’s what I was going to say BB. Go for it Ladebra. 🙂

        • ladebra says:

          Oh Contessa, and Lisa and BB and Powell – this is all great information. I really really appreciate your advice. (My answer would be too skinny so I started over here).

          I’m for sure going to do my research. I know, no guarantees, but I’m ready to do this for me. I don’t want to look 20 (well maybe but that’s not happening), but I’m ready for some help with gravity!

  7. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Good Morning-my little sis talked me into going to this event with her
    http://www.vivabrandsusa.com/events.html
    Perez Hilton, Melissa Gorga, Carla Facciolo…and….wait for it…..KELLY BENSIMON…how did I let myself get roped into this????

    • BB says:

      Hiiiieeeeeee! Hey, it might be fun. Please report back to us. Kelly might be kray, kray but I have to give her props for moving on from the Housewives gig so fast and not clinging on to it for dear life like some others.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I know!
        Who would had thought that she would handle the situation better than Jill.

      • mrs peabody says:

        She was able to move on because she had a taste of being a celebrity through her husband and modeling, for most of the others this was their first time at any type of fame and they liked being famous (even as a housewife) and to lose that and go back to being nobody’s again it’s probably been hard on their ego’s.

    • Boobah says:

      Well, they serve wine – I think that’s your answer. Don’t forget to take pictures and you must report back! 😀 Have fun!

    • Cartwheels says:

      LOL, please, please , please go

      Then you can give us all the scoops here 😀

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I will be the most annoying person at the party-I will try to talk to everyone and take pics with them-my sis is a pro at being in pics with these “celebs” so she will show me the ropes!!! I really want to get a load of KB and she how she conducts herself!!!

        • lizzle says:

          I can’t wait to hear about it!

        • pat says:

          Introduce yourself as Alice. Alice Sharpton.

        • Orson says:

          No, introduce yourself as Susan Saunders. But let’s be honest, you don’t have the guts to bump Cray Kel or Mel into a pool. Because you’re all talk, but when it comes down to it, you’re just a chicken! Awwk bawk bawk bawk!! Chicken!!

          :: come on people, let’s get some peer pressure going here ::

          • LaineyLainey says:

            How can I taunt her when I’m still dying laughing about imagining her introducing herself as “Susan Saunders”

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Orson-I have 3 brothers-if you think calling me a chicken is going to work….YOU ARE RIGHT!!! Let me at them HWs…someone is going for a swim!!!

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Morning Jill, bring KKB a brush and this time show her how to use it, it’s a complicated concept. I want a full report from our carrier pidgeon. You are a good sport, that event is the last thing I would shave my legs for 🙂 Lisa

    • Don’t forget to bring your satchels of gold and a bag of jelly beans! 😀 Have fun and can’t wait to hear the details!

    • melthehound says:

      I say go.. Have some fun… and you can push ALL of them into the pool as far as I’m concerned. Just make sure Sis is out of the way and gets a good shot of it so we can all have a good laugh 😀

    • Powell says:

      JNNTJ you gotta stick w/your little sis I guess but tell her that she owes you big time. 🙂

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        She sent me an email and said-you’re coming right??? So I figured what the hell-I may get some good stories out of the night!!!

  8. BB says:

    Off to Mom’s. BBL.

  9. Good Morning! I hope everyone is feeling good today!

    Thanks once again NMD for posting the blog. Hope your computer issues are over and all is well!

    Thanks Lisette for the DWTS recap. I count on it every Wed. so I can keep up with who goes home. Glad to hear Andy was gracious and I hope his time on the show spins some positive stuff for him.

    It’s “Humor Day” over at my place and there are some good ones today! Enjoy!

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi Jillnntj – One question ab out the event – General Admission or VIP and what’s the dif? oops that’s two Q’s

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        General admission is the way I’m going-50 bucks…VIP is 100 bucks and the only thing you get extra is a little gift bag and a pic with Perez…no thanks-my sis will get a pic with paying extra!!!

    • Powell says:

      How did I miss that? Happy Anniversary Mr. & Mrs. Lainey. “Some enchanted evening”. 🙂

  11. Lulu says:

    Good Morning!!!! As always late with all my shows!—->Posted this before the new blog! Happy NMD that you up and running! Sorry about your computer.

    I don’t know why I bothered watching RHOC but I did. It amazes me just how alike Gary Busey and Tamra are. Well minus the intellect that is just Gary’s erratic behavior and twisted logic. I had a good laugh when Eddie in a matter of fact way told her about postponing the wedding. When you see a person act so evil toward a person (Alexis) that she is clearly jealous of. Hey she gets what she deserves.

    Gretchen and her Omarosa tears. Anyone else notice how childlike she is? Gretchen: Your stupid??? Need I say more??? This women belongs on that stupid show “bad girl’s club.” Only in her case it would be “wannabe bad girl.”

    Lydia who?? I’m sure she will fall into that category of Cindy lou who??? “I’m a genius!” I wished that Vicki would have said “sure you are sweetheart and the rest of the table as well!” Well another one that brings nothing to the table.

    I found it interesting that Heather just how far up Tamra’s @ss she is. All this talk about being a “strong” women. But yet all she is is another follower. Pretty sad and pathetic. Can Bravo find a decent Jewish women on the HW’s brand??? It’s sad that the one who shall not be named is starting to look better then her.

    So far Vicki is the only one on the show that is “likeable.” Love the moments with her and Brianna. Hope Bravo is taking notes. What made the show popular was the family and friends interactions. Not this BS of fighting.

    • Powell says:

      Lulu Gary Busey cracked his skull riding his motorcycle w/o a helmet on the pacific coast hwy. What’s Tamra’s excuse?

    • pat says:

      I’ve been surprised at the sh!t Heather is taking from Tamra, too. Tamra practically slammed the wine cellar door on her, at her own home, when she wanted to have a private convo with Vickie. Then asking her if she wanted to be kicked out next, at the gym party. Surprised Heather is taking that crap.

      • Powell says:

        I was surprised that she let Tamra tell her that she could get the eff out too. Heather & Vicki should have gotten up from that table and left and let Tamra look like the idiot she is.

        • Contessa says:

          Powell – I am with you and at the same time, would have told her she needs to overcome her trailer trash behavior, have a good long hard look at her dark soul and learn some manners and when she is ready to please call and apologize for her behavior and she and Vicki TWIRL out to the limo. For someone who tries to present herself as so intellectual and east coast, she is a doing a miserable job of alligning herself with the likes of Tramprat and Gretched and being part ofthe 3 soulless hags of OC.

  12. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Lisa BB and PP-I can’t believe you 3 are people haters….you seem so nice in cyber space!!!

    • princesspindy says:

      I hate the general public.

      • princesspindy says:

        As in going to the store and people getting in my way in the parking lot because they are too busy texting and then blocking the aisle in the grocery store because they are too busy texting, I am so tired of people getting in my way or me being polite and waiting or giving “the right of way” and then realizing that I am sitting there or standing there wasting my time because they ;are on their PHUCKING PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I only have so much patience and tolerance for being out in public and I hate it when any of it is wasted on phone phuckers!!!!

        If I wanted patience, I would have become a Doctor!!!!

        • Powell says:

          That’s my mom’s number one complaint. People on their cells texting & talking while driving & doing things like you mention.

        • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

          You are my heroine Pindy I feel the same way. Another pet peeve of mine is call waiting. My cousin uses it all the time. I am always tempted to just hang up when she sticks me on it. Sheesh.

          • Powell says:

            JWIJ I’d hang up. I’m not a talker on the phone. So if someone is talking to me they better get on w/it. I hate to hear the phone ring.

          • pat says:

            My dad calls call waiting “call rudeness.”

          • princesspindy says:

            I have about a 30 second call waiting time limit……if they want to talk to me they can call back…

            • ladebra says:

              Absolutely right. I don’t like the phone in the first place, but call waiting is like saying “my time is more important then yours”

              • princesspindy says:

                Yep, At least with my bffs we will just say “gotta go” and we hang up really fast, trying to get a call waiting with my hubby never works, he is a long goodbyer, lol!!

    • BB says:

      Let’s put it this way. I hate chatting it up and making “small” talk with people I barely know. You would never know it because I try to be outgoing and nice when in public, but I takes a huge amount of effort.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Jill, that is so funny. Scariest part it is getting worse as I get older & I have a happy your not dead day coming up this month. My main beef is that people act like they live alone on this planet. Also, when I speak some schmuck always wants to play the where are you from game. I always say guess, you can’t be that stupid. Then they guess & I say dam you really are that stupid. Their next guess is always going to be NY, never fails. My husband just hangs his head, he dies from how I just let it rip but it makes him laugh. Last two weeks my DD has had to whisper “be nice & smile” to me everytime we were approached. I wear very dark perscription Raybans & never remove them, makes DD nuts. She says it’s rude & I say good, people leave me alone because they can’t see my eyes. There is very little outside my home that interests me anymore, especially people. That said, there are a few people here I would enjoy getting to know better 🙂 Lisa

      • princesspindy says:

        My daughter is always saying “be nice” to me……yesterday we went thru the KFC drive thru and I was so damn nice, as we were pulling up to pay I said, “see I can be nice” LOL!! She just rolled her eyes! She hears what I am saying while I am driving and I keep telling her that the people I am saying stuff about can’t hear me and she says but they can see your lips moving and I say “phuck em, they are lucky they can’t hear me!”

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I’m more like the 3 of you than I thought! I don’t like small talk and my family and a few VERY close friends is all I have time for. I’m always telling people to keep their social circle tight!! At this stage of my life-with Annabelle and Maggie in school-I’m always the mother standing over there waiting to leave-no PTA meetings for me-no chatting at the bus stop!!

        • princesspindy says:

          I hated school events!!!! It was torture for me, Back to School Night and Open House, OMG!!! I have very tight boundaries. The ladies I have worked with in recovery are always very envious of my boundaries and my ability to say “no”. I thank my hubby for that. He told me years ago that I needed to take better care of myself and stop letting people take advantage of me and if I needed an excuse to use him as an excuse. I realized that the world wouldn’t stop turning if I wasn’t the one to volunteer or be “room mom”…. I also realized that a lot of phone calls from “friends” were just them wanting me to do something for them…… A few months ago I was out to dinner with some ladies and I was saying that I had bought some material to make pillows. The one woman got all excited and said, “Oh, I have this material and you can make pillows for me!” and I said, “No, you misunderstood, I am making pillows for ME, I don’t want to make pillows for you”, she looked crushed as I laughed… Bitch, I ain’t making you pillows!!!! (been there, done that)

          • Powell says:

            “Bitch, I ain’t making you pillows

            • Powell says:

              Oops. I hit send by mistake.

              That was good PrincessP. 😉

              • princesspindy says:

                🙂 I have gone down that road before and it always bites me in the ass. Just before Christmas I had a lady whose hubby was in Afghanistan in the Marines and a group had made her daughter a quilt with pictures of her hubby with the kids and the daughter was 4 and had ripped the quilt. I told her I would fix it, being a wife of a former Marine and all. In my mind no big deal, just sew it back up….. Well, no good deed goes unpunished. I basically ended up remaking the quilt, replacing squares, sewed over every seam since it was out of flannel and the seams had shrunk down to nothing. It was a nightmare. It would have been easier to make a new quilt. I swore right then and there that I would never sew anything for anyone outside of my family again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                I did use my machine to embroider
                “DADDY LOVES YOU” in the corner, I am not completely heartless, lol!!

                • Powell says:

                  Haha. I used to sew & only for myself. People always asked me to make them something. Nope. I never did.

                  • princesspindy says:

                    Well, at this same dinner a couple of the ladies got the bright idea that I could teach them to sew. I just smiled. AS IF!!

          • iceNfire says:

            I loved school events!!!! LoL Listening to all the gossip and saying idk when asked about friend or neighbor and saying “No Time” to anyone that asked me to volunteer

          • ladebra says:

            My favorite saying — I’m not your bitch, Bitch.

            I’m a little prickly.

            • princesspindy says:

              LOL, I remember that but what is that from…..Top Chef, right?? maybe??? The blonde guy??

              • ladebra says:

                Yes! It was several seasons ago, I can’t remember the Chet’s name 😦 but I loved the line and use it a lot lol.

              • Lisa Renee says:

                I think that is season one Top Chef & it was said to Tiffany with the red hair by the blond headed guy, old whats his name. Loved that line, still do 🙂

              • Cartwheels says:

                Yes, David told that to Tiffany at the end of the episode of restaurant wars .

                That line is a classic. I loved that season of Top Chef.

        • Lisa Renee says:

          I think I am so cranky now because I was always class mom, on every dam field trip & my house was grand central station. Set it up like that so I always knew who her friends were & more important their parents. I wanted people to know who my child belonged to should they be foolish enough to mess with her. When she started 8th grade she told me just because I am older now I still want you to come to class, her other friends were at the stage of being embarassed by their parents, not my kid. I did the fake ass smile crap until she left for boarding school. These people actually thought I gave a phuck. Women from the south are so dam nosey. I did not find it charming, but I sucked it up. I kicked them all to the curb the day of graduation. Whenever I run into any of them (small town) I hear we never see you any more. I say you are so right & keep it moving. They are lucky I don’t tell them it is not by accident but by design. 🙂

      • Powell says:

        You crack me up Lisa. 😉

    • lillybee says:

      LIsa, enjoy yourself at that gathering.

  13. ladebra says:

    I watched the Amanda Knox interview last night. And of course, remembering Meredith Kercher was brutally murdered, and not diminishing that – I took away from the interview that Amanda, who was 20 and in a foreign country, and a very different legal system, was just overwhelmed and in shock through out the investigation. I think she was socially awkward, and a silly 20 year old, but I don’t think she killed her room mate. She is a different person, and probably lost pieces she will never get back, but I hope they bring out all the evidence or lack of evidence in the retrial. And Amanda finds a way to move forward.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I don’t think she killed her either. I think she was scared confused 20 year old who would have said anything to make the investigators leave her the hell alone!!! They had the sights set on her as the killer and they wouldn’t let go-even when DNA was in their hands.

    • Powell says:

      Ladebra I missed it. Fell asleep. I saw her on GMA this morning w/Robin. I have never thought she or her BF at the time killed Meredith. I think they have the guy in prison that killed her. I feel really bad for Meredith’s family. They continue to suffer. In Peruga they allow a person to be convicted by the media. The police leaked so much to the media. When they told Amanda she was HIV positive & had her give them a list of guys she was intimate w/they just gve that to the media to go along w/”Foxy Noxy”. They wanted her to be painted as promiscuous & commited a perverse sexual act w/her BF & Meredith & it didn’t go her way so she killed her. It’s just pitiful.
      That’s why when you go to a foreign country you have to mind their laws, not get mixed up in things , not cause trouble. They don’t care that you’re Americanwhen it comes to the law.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I don’t think her and her boyfriend at the time killed her either, I think she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. The police decided early on she did it and that was it as far as they were concerned, same with that prosecuter. I bet if the real killer said he did it they’d still blame it on her and still be prosecuting her. I have a question, I read Italy cannot compel her to return to for the trial but if they find her guilty again will they be able to make her go back? Do we have an agreement with them for that? Can the US refuse to return her based on no evidence to really show they did this? This is a nightmare for that girl and her family.

        • ladebra says:

          I’m not familiar with the extradition aspects of the case. I really hope that they find her not guilty, again, and that’s the end of it. But who can tell. I’m sure we will hear all the details as the new trial begins. I hope she doesn’t go to Italy to defend herself. I wouldn’t trust their legal system again.

        • Powell says:

          Her American lawyer said something about having to go back or not on the news but I don’t remember what he said.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Powell, Amen! It is why I hated traveling abroad. Most don’t realize we leave our constitution at the gate when getting on the plane. Cruise Lines are the same way. You are under the laws of their country of origin. If you don’t research it you have no clue what country is really running the ship. Lisa

  14. Lulu says:

    Anyone read the book “The passage” by Justin Cronin? I’m about 3/4 a way in the book and have a question for those who have read it.

    • ladebra says:

      I read it Lulu but its been a year or so. What’s up?

      • Lulu says:

        Is the author a pedophile? It disturbs me how he writes about the children. In some cases too much detail that I have skipped a page over. I haven’t read the entire book yet just wondering if anyone else picked up on it?

        • ladebra says:

          I found the book disturbing, but I didn’t understand it was a horror story before I started. It’s part of a trilogy; but I won’t be reading any more of the story. I don’t like horror though.

          I don’t remember thinking pedophile – but he does have those Brazilian sex offenders written into the story. Sorry, I’m not much help.

          • Lulu says:

            Didn’t realize it’s a trilogy? For sure I won’t read anymore of his books. I like reading a good horror book but IMO Children are off limits!

            Can you recommend a good non-romance novel?

            • ladebra says:

              I’m a Dan Brown fan. In addition to The Da Vinci Code, and Angels and Demons – he wrote The Digital Fortress and Deception Point both of which I liked. They are mystery, intrigue, thrillers. And he has a new one, The Inferno, I think it’s called coming out in May. It’s another book bout Prof Langdon but it sounds interesting too.

        • mygirlsmom says:

          I read The Passage and the second book called The Twelve. I can kind of see in the first half of the first book how someone might think this even though I really didn’t think it myself. There was so much focus on the character of Amy as a child in the first half but not so much in the last part of The Passage and The Twelve was a totally different tone. I liked them both.

    • princesspindy says:

      Crossing Justin Cronin off my reading list!!!

    I’m addicted to Blue Diamond Lightly Salted (Sea Salt) Almonds. I cannot stop eating them and even though they are good for you, they are fattening.

          Being on the east coast has it’s advantages. No earthquakes (major I should say since we had a very minor one ’12), no snow months on end.

          • princesspindy says:

            I will take my earthquakes over the hurricanes, snow, rain, etc! At least out earthquakes only come every so often….I mean the big ones….anything under a 5.5 is nuthing, I know it sounds crazy cuz they have caused me such anxiety but youse guys get this weather every year…..

                    You betcha! I remember one time ditching school in 12th grade and driving from The Valley to Zuma Beach, it was fogged in so we drove to Castatic Lake and when we got there half the senior class was there ~~ PARTY!!!

              I rarely feel the quakes unless they are over 4.0

              I missed Northridge, but I was in SF for that one. That was enough for me. But I will take quakes over tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards (but let’s not test that with the big one anytime soon)

              • princesspindy says:

                I was in the Sylmar and Northridge, and I remember the Landers one…. and I remember I had a business trip planned for SF and my mom was going to come up and meet me and we were going to spend the weekend in SF and I had to cancel the trip 😦

        I just talked to a friend who said he heard on the radio that we (I guess we being eastern Nebraska) have not had snow in May for over 100 years. I like being a witness to history, but this history I can do without! I really feel sorry for the junior high, senior high and college students who play outdoor spring sports. So many cancellations this spring in this neck of the woods.

    • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

      Husker Huny have you ever thought of moving. That weather at this time of year might seriously get me thinking about a move.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        What’s going on today is truly a once in a lifetime occurrence. I would never move from here. As bad as the weather is now and has been, just wait until fall. It’s the most beautiful time of year – warm days, cool nights and HUSKER FOOTBALL and VOLLEYBALL! If the worst thing that happens to me weather-wise is a little May snow, I’m a very lucky lady. Many, many others around the country today are far worse off than I am. Floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc., I can deal with the snow. Now off to put more blankets on my bed!

    Jacqueline Laurita ‏@JacLaurita 25 Apr
    Some say we r rich.Some say we r broke.We r not rich & we r not broke.We r doing ok. Autism treatments & therapies r very expensive ya know?

    She’s blaming her autistic son for the lightening of her wallet. The botox, booze, tummy-tucks, travel, mani-pedis, spa treatments, have nothing to do with it. This woman is sick, sick, sick.

    • Powell says:

      That’s low. I’m pretty sure the private jets, cars, clothes, etc happened before the sperm shook hands w/the egg. How dare she blame her son’s expenses.

    • plainviewsue says:

      That tweet made me sick to my stomach. To blame their money woes on Nicholas’s treatments is just simply beyond.

    • melthehound says:

      It’s all Teresa’s fault…

    Oh nancy!!!! We are both going to have to live without Jon for awhile and instead, settle for john! This will explain it all. Also, he emailed me and said he loves me best 😘

    • Nancy says:

      I know he e-mailed you cocfarm as he did it from my bedroom. LOL
      It’s going to be a long 3 mons without him. 😦

      • Powell says:

        Wow! You came out swinging Nancy. 🙂

      • cocfarm says:

        Ah, yes, he only takes me to 4 star resorts….
        Ok, I wrote other things but they just sounded too horrible!
        I like John, but he’s no Jon. It I’ll be a long time without him. Don’t know anything about this movie. Should be interesting.

    Nancy,
    Whoa….that was a pretty good game.
    I am startin’ to really like Hockey.
    Hope it lasts.

    • Nancy says:

      Citiside,
      I’m still wearing black from last night. I’m so mad at our goalie.
      I’m glad you are beginning to enjoy the sport as it’s crazy!!!!
      See you tomorrow night. 🙂

  20. plainviewsue says:

    Hey all. Well, there was definitely excitement here today.

    My son Brian works for Time Inc in Manhattan. He was in the lobby earlier today & who walks in but Teresa!!!!!! She had tweeted that she was going to be in the city doing press for Milania Hair Care.

    He of course recognized her from all the times I am watching the show & screaming at the TV! So when she came near him, he said “Teresa?” She said “yes.” He said, “My mom is a big fan of yours. Could you take a pic with me?” She said “sure”, and he took a pic of them! He then texted me the pic & called me (did u guys hear me screaming????!!!!).

    If you are on twitter, I’m @plainviewsue and I retweeted the picture. My son’s twitter account is @busdriversroute.

    Teresa is coming to my town this coming Saturday for Milania Hair care and it’s also for Hurricane Sandy relief. So I’ll be hopefully going with my friend and her daughter.

    Speaking of RHONJ, Melissa appeared in court today and had to pay fines for those driving violations. She wanted them to be contested, but she had to pay. Not having a child in a car seat is unforgivable.

    Survivor tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I read up thread somewhere talk about the LifeStyle Lift-Debbie Boone(. She the one who sang “you light up my life” right?) had it done and she looks FABULOUS!!! She looks younger and very refreshed!!! She is the spokesperson for LifeStyle Lift-IDK if that has anything to do it???

    • Powell says:

      Right. There is a new commercial they have been showing. She looks marvelous, in my Billy Crystal Saturday Night Live persona voice. :P:o

    • princesspindy says:

      I just googled it cuz we joke in our house about the commercials that are always on,
      ~ ~with optional neck lift, ~~but these reviews make it sound horrendous!! http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/life-style-lift-c144956.html#comments

      • ladebra says:

        I have read good and bad. I’m not sure if the difference is the person doing the procedure, or what. I am going to check it out though. I’ll let you know!

      • ladebra says:

        By the way, PP, your house sounds like a great place to live 😄

        • princesspindy says:

          We have a lot of fun! One time about a year ago the kids and I were only talking if we sang it in an “Opera Voice” and my hubby came home in the middle….he is not as goofy as we are but he couldn’t resist and .we got him to do it too, it was so great!!!

    • Lisette (2) says:

      My friend’s mom had the lifestyle lift and she looks amazing! She had is done maybe 10 years ago and is looking to do it again. I don’t know how it works so maybe it depends on the surgeon but whoever did my friend’s mom did great work.

  22. AZGirl says:

    Home from the office!!! YEA! No complaints (no pun intended) glad we are busy. Well, Well, Well stopped at the grocery store to get something for dinner and YES! I got my first senior discount. CRAP!
    I should be happy that the clerk asked if I qualified and not just give me the discount. I vow to age slowly as possible without surgery but I really wish I could do something about my neck.
    @HuskerHuny: I am really feeling your pain. It has been a very long winter.

    • BB says:

      AZGirl. What is the age for senior discounts? I’m serious. I never asked. Sorry about your neck.

      • AZGirl says:

        Here the senior discount is 55. As for my neck I am resembling a chicken. 🙂

        • BB says:

          Well then I certainly qualify by almost three years. I noticed the cashier in the hospital automatically gave me one when I bought lunch in there one day. I guess I must need some neck and face work too! Lol! I come from a long line of droopy necks (not wrinkly, just droopy) on my mom’s side. That and a dowager’s hump, but I’m trying hard to watch my posture.

          • iceNfire says:

            wait – there is a senior discount at grocery store? i go to grocery store at least 3 times a week and have never seen anyone get a discount…is it a quietly done? what does receipt say? huh? is this a joke?

            • BB says:

              The grocery store I frequent most definitely gives seniors a discount every Tuesday. Not sure about the rest of the time. You should ask them about it. A lot of places give senior discounts especially if you ask about them – fast food, drug stores, restaurants, etc.

  23. Nancy says:

    Happy Anniversary Lainey! I hope it’s a good one. 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Thank you, dearest Nancy!! We just got home from dinner. It was very good. Our son is still in town working, so we had the pleasure of his company and really enjoyed it!

  24. kit9 says:

    Omg, the defense witness was on the stand for, what, 6 hours, today and it took Juan Martinez 10 minutes to rip him to shreds! Wow.

    • princesspindy says:

      I can’t believe that is still going!!! It has lasted longer than Kim K’s marriage!!

      • kit9 says:

        Rofl!!!!

        • Nancy says:

          kit,
          Are you still watching? This poor shrink on the stand. I almost feel sorry for him.
          It might actually be a wrap in a few hours. Never thought it would happen.

          GUILTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • kit9 says:

            I am! And, this guy? Don’t know whether to laugh or cry. He spilled water all over the place! rofl! Let me tell you, there are a few things I’m going to be so happy to never see again after this trial…Wilmott’s bald spot, those annoying Nutrisystem ads with Terry Bradshaw, those annoying Nutrisystem ads with Terry Bradshaw and Jillian whatsername and of course, Jodi’s smirking mug.

            • Nancy says:

              Did you hear him burp? LOL This is like a SNL episode. Oh no he’s pouring himself
              more water. Those Nutrisystem adds aren’t showing in LA. Jodi is a sociopath.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I`m convinced the Defense tactic is to bore the jury to death, so then they can claim a mistrial because all the jurors are dead. Seriously WTF was this waste of a time witness all about?

  25. BB says:

    My nephew and his wife just found out they are having a girl in October. Now my mom will be great grandmom to one of each.

  26. nyc mama says:

    I had nothing to do earlier so went over to former BHHW Marisa “flip flop” Zanuck’s twitter and guess what she has flip-flopped yet again.. Yes, I know you are as surprised as I was. (not).

    She is now claiming that the show wasn’t for her.

    Marisa Zanuck‏@marisazanuck30 Apr @RHOGossip I’m not going to hurt other women for a pay check!!!!
    Marisa Zanuck‏@marisazanuck9h @Jeanclaudexx your so funny!! They want someone who will cause drama that’s not ME!! I’m a jokester!! Lol!!
    Marisa Zanuck‏@marisazanuck30 Apr @OKMagazine that type of show wasn’t for me!! I can’t just be a BitCH for no reason!!! Marisa Zanuck‏@marisazanuck27 Apr I always say too much, Trust too much that people are who they say… Im too Naive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Beth Donahue-Weedman‏@bdonahueweedman30 Apr @marisazanuck honey trust us, you dodged a bullet. Everyone assoc with that show is worse off for it! Xo Marisa Zanuck‏@marisazanuck30 Apr@bdonahueweedman your right!!;)

    This is what she is tweeting now after so many months of constantly lobbying to come back and retweeting every time someone called for her to return, even after her farewell blog.

    She also used to tweet she didn’t want to do another Real Estate show but guess what…yep, she apparently now changed her mind.

    Marisa Zanuck‏@marisazanuck9h
    @MrsPaigeRahn YES!! You can!! See me on ‘Million Dollar Listing LA

    Marisa Zanuck‏@marisazanuck30 Apr
    I would love to do another Real Estate show ASAP!!! My business is important to me!!!

    Marisa Zanuck‏@marisazanuck30 Apr

    @RyanStoneman I would love to do another show! Just not this one!! Looking to so another real estate show ASAP!! Hahaha

    • Nancy says:

      She’s a lost little soul IMHO.

      • nyc mama says:

        I agree.

        Sometimes it is best to not say anything and move on with grace. It’s a bit sad. She already lost about 5k twitter followers. Considering she only had about 20k to begin with thats quite a lot.

    • Orson says:

      So, she won’t be able to emasculate her husband on television anymore. Such a shame.

  27. May Day protest grrrr. I wanna watch Survivor. I think I’m getting more and more shallow as I age.

  28. They bleeped it out when Tamra said “beaner”. Hmmm – backtracking Bravo?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I noticed that too-Bravo must have gotten a lot of crap for that!!!!

  29. lillybee says:

    Fire season is starting early this year. One fire a few counties south, one fire one county east. My eyes are watering already.

  30. Nancy says:

    Kit,
    I can’t take it anymore so I’m turning in as this could go on for hours. Sorry.

    • kit9 says:

      I”m right behind you. They just said they think Juan has a witness? Are you kidding?! The judge is going ot have to call an end to this, it’s now beyond absurd. In any case, I’m out, too.

      • Nancy says:

        kit,
        It went until a little after midnight and he did put another witness on the stand.
