Who did NeNe want dropped from Housewives? by NMD

NeNe Leakes sat down for a one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen to be aired this Sunday.  During the Atlanta reunion, NeNe announced that she’s like one of the “girls” to be replaced, but she acted coy when asked which one.  Many assumed NeNe was talking about Phaedra Parks or Kandi Burruss, but it turns out she wanted the woman that she has called her “little sister,” Porsha Stewart, dropped from the show.    In an interview with People Magazine, NeNe explains:

“Yes, I did feel that Porsha at that time needed to leave the show because there was something – I’m a good judge of character; I’ve been blessed, child, I’ve been given a gift – and I kept feeling like Porsha and Kordell were not being real enough.”

That is hilarious considering Kenya Moore faked her on-screen relationship with Walter, and many people are convinced that NeNe’s own divorce was simply a way to allow Gregg to clear his debts.

Meanwhile Porsha tweeted: “Keep turning the knife SMH.”  It’s unclear if she’s reacting to NeNe, more games by Kordell who appears to be wooing her back,  or the rumors that their divorce drama was faked.

Real Housewives of Orange County by Stars99

Welcome to Crazytown!

Remember last week…Deadbeat dad Slade is on his way to New York to be with his son who was undergoing some major but necessary surgery; Briana and her new husband Ryan don’t want Brooks within 10 miles of their baby Troy or Vicki; much to everyone’s surprise, newbie Lydia and Alexis actually attended Tamra’s Bravo’s staged “party” at the new CUT Fitness Studio thingie which is looking not much more than a large, empty warehouse with a convenient garage door through which people could make their exits, if necessary…

aa TamraAlexis was telling Heather that she could just continue being as mean as she wants… Heather doesn’t think she’s being mean – she says that she’s just talking… Heather, just because you’re not yelling, does not mean you’re not saying mean things…Tamra interjects that if Heather is being mean then Alexis is also being mean – and since Alexis put on her big girl panties this week, she mistakenly tells Tamra to “butt out”… which, apparently, sends Tamra over the edge and she gets up to physically remove Alexis from the “party”… Alexis is telling Tamra “don’t touch me, don’t touch me” which is something I’m sure that Eddie tells Tamra all the time… Alexis is gladly leaving… Gretchen wildly applauds and almost launches into a cheer of glee… Where are her pom poms, anyway?

In her talking head, Lydia welcomes us to “Crazytown” and tells us that she’s never seen such a spectacle. Oh, honey, you’ve not seen anything yet… run while you still can! Tamra screams at Vicki that she’s going to have to choose sides right now… or else she can “get the f*** out, too”… In her talking head, Vicki mutters the understatement of the year, “Omg… Tamra is crazy.”  Wow, Vicki, you’re just getting it now?

Immediately after Alexis leaves the brood of vipers, Lydia walks up to console Alexis who seems to be waiting around in the parking lot, and says, “I’m so sorry.”  Alexis just doesn’t understand why they’re so mean to her.  Lydia attempts to sanely explain to her that it’s because there’s so much emotion from so much past history with them… Alexis marvels that she really can’t have a conversation with just one of them, because the minute she talks the rest of them jump into the conversation.  Alexis, once again, unfortunately asserts she’s being bullied – and reminds us that the definition of bullying is when someone is badgering you to the point where like, you’re going crazy. When the word “bully” is used in this group, it seems that it’s like lighting a match and throwing it on gasoline – cuz there’s always a huge explosion.  In her talking head, Lydia says, “Do I think that they were all going at her at the same time? Of course!  Do I think she’s being bullied?  Absolutely not!”  I think I’m really liking this Lydia chick.

We hear Tamra telling us all how “gracious” Heather was to be telling Alexis her side of the story.  “Gracious”… really? Tamra uses that word like 5 times during the course of the evening.  “Gracious” must have been the word of the day on Tamra’s “Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader” daily word builder calendar. It seems that Tamra feels the need to stick up for Heather… which is just hysterical to me.  Vicki, (who is still seated at the table, btw)… is reasonably telling Tamra that Heather has a point and that Alexis has a point, too. But, noooOOOoooo…. According to Tamra, “No, Alexis has no f***ing point.”  And because Gretchen arguing stupidGretchen’s brain just can’t handle more than one thought in her head at a time, she cackles once again about when they were in San Francisco and how Alexis lead the pack against Vicki – who was merely telling Vicki that sometimes Vicki says things that are offensive.  Ummm… that can be said of most of us, can’t it?  And if I remember correctly, Vicki was saying really ugly and outlandish things to people. Therefore, according to Gretchen’s warped logic, Alexis can’t cry “victim” now since she confronted Vicki way back when… Holy cow…  In her talking head, Gretchen explains that everyone had something negative to say about her back when she was dating the rich, gravely ill, older guy named Jeff – Everyone claimed Gretchen was a gold digger and that she was cheating on him… Bravo’s Way-Back machine kindly provides us with a scene when Vicki and Tamra are leaving Gretchen and immediately start gossiping about her and Jeff.  Vicki’s saying that if he didn’t have any money, that Gretchen wouldn’t be dating him… and Tamra is saying that Gretchen was dating Jay at the same time… and Alexis was saying… oh wait, Alexis wasn’t saying ANYTHING about Gretchen’s dating life because she wasn’t even on the show at that time!  So we have a whole season wherein Tamra and Vicki make snide remark after snide remark about Gretchen… and when Alexis comes on the scene a season later, since Gretchen is so beat up about everything, she really seems to be a friend to her and sticks up for her all season long.  Fast forward to now and who does Gretchen choose to attack?  Yep… Alexis… makes PERFECT sense to me.

Awww… aren’t we so proud of Gretchen cuz during that whole season she never claimed anyone was bullying her but instead that they were just offering their opinions about her.  Right… that’s how you took the comments at the time.  Just keep on believin’ that… Gretchen pretends to take responsibility for choosing to continue to come out and hang out with this group – oh, and get paid more money than she could otherwise make on her own since she no longer has her sugar daddy around.  Isn’t Gretchen such an awesome person?  She’s making a point that Alexis shouldn’t have shown up to the event if she didn’t want to hear from them about all the stuff she’s been saying about them – that she shouldn’t have even walked into the door. After all, she is not a young kid on a playground being forced to do something against his will.

Alexis mistakenly thought that Tamra had grown as a person (ha!) and that she came to the event tonight thinking that it could have been a turning of a page for her and Tamra.  Alexis has never in her 35 years felt so much hate and cruelty towards her.

Vickiaa Vicki and TamraVicki verbally expresses to Tamra that she’s there for her at this event.  Heather wants to point out the fact that Vicki is still there sitting there at the table with them – that she didn’t immediately leave and go after Alexis which means something. Just what… I’m not sure… Heather, while talking to Tamra, tells her that she loves Tamra but says sometimes Tamra has no filters.  Heather says Tamra spoke a little harshly, and Tamra immediately looks like she sucked on a honkin’ lemon wedge and got a seed caught in her teeth.   Heather explains that Vicki did not get up and storm out of the room with Alexis – but it’s hard for Heather to talk because Tamra is woah, woah, woah, woahing… as if what Heather just said blew her mind.  Heather quickly clarifies that there were some “F” words thrown around and there were some moments… then Tamra asks Heather if she would like to get thrown out, too…Heather puts up her hand and gestures in her best traffic guard “Stop” hand signal and says, “No no no no…”  Heather is just saying that Vicki didn’t run after Alexis – she’s here because she loves you and is supporting you.  Tamra tells her to back up… In her talking head, Heather thinks Tamra is a nuclear bomb she needs to diffuse but she doesn’t know quite which wire to clip.  Tamra just can’t get over what Heather just said, and wants to know specifically when it was that she spoke harshly to Vicki?  In a Captain Obvious kind of way, Heather responds with when you told her she could get the f*** out and all that – that’s harsh.  In her talking head, Tamra says she doesn’t know what the h*** Heather is talking about and she doesn’t want to hear it.  She says that Vicki is a s*** stirrer – that’s what Vicki is.  Gretchen, because she wants Tamra all to herself, pours gasoline on the fire by pointing out that Vicki is the one who brought someone along that ruined the night – so of course, why wouldn’t Tamra be mad at Vicki, too?  Stars just giggles…. Vicki, in a clear effort to only use small words that Gretchen can understand, says “Shushhhhhh for a minute.”  Gretchen is NOT going have any of that…no she is not!  She is NOT going to “Shush… how about that one?”  Lol…  Thankfully, Vicki explains to viewers in her talking head, “Everything that comes out of Gretchen’s mouth is just hot air.  Gretchen is just stupid.”  Vicki tells Gretchen not to yell at her and Gretchen assures her she will yell at her all she wants.  Gretchen is not askeered of Vicki, nope nope nope… Vicki says she doesn’t expect her to be afraid of her, she just doesn’t want her to yell.  It seems like a reasonable request, no?  ooooOOOoo Gretchen claims she can yell at her all she wants because Vicki is being stupid… See that?  Gretchen thinks she’s being smart by turning that “Stupid” comment Vicki made about her earlier that evening (about 5 minutes earlier, Bravo time) back on Vicki because well, Gretchen, quite frankly, has never had an original thought… Well, perhaps one, but then it died from loneliness.  Then Vicki and Gretchen stupidly argue about which of them is actually stupid… I kid you not…

Meanwhile, in the parking lot, Alexis is telling Lydia she doesn’t want her to feel like she needs to come to her rescue… Lydia says she’s going to go back in and check in with Vicki to see what’s going on and will come back out and tell her what they’re going to do, is that cool?  Remember, Alexis, Vicki and Lydia all came in the same car.  Alexis goes off to sit and cry in the limo.  Alexis is bemoaning the fact that she came to this party for Vicki – and up to this point, Vicki hasn’t bothered to check-up on her and she’s really sad.  No, Alexis, Vicki is far too busy telling Gretchen she’s nuts.

As she reenters the snake pit, Lydia, in her best “ohmygosh don’t kill the messenger voice” says, “Alexis is going to go” and then she asks Vicki if she’s going to stay… In an effort to guilt Vicki into staying, Tamra reminds her that she’s having someone come over to bless this f***ing building… Lydia suggests they go outside to say “bye” to Alexis then… In her talking head, Vicki says that she probably should have walked out with Alexis, but that she’s trying to stay neutral and she thinks this whole thing is weird and embarrassing.  Vicki peeks her head into the limo where Alexis is crying… Vicki says she doesn’t blame Alexis for crying and Alexis is wondering why Vicki stayed in there?  Vicki and Lydia climb into the limo with Alexis, but keep the door open.  Alexis says she came to the event for Vicki and then she just stays there when she was thrown out of it.  Vicki explains that she’s trying to understand the anger they have and that she’s trying to fix it.  Alexis asserts that she has to be loyal to Alexis because she came for Vicki.  Vicki understands and it’s not that she’s being disloyal – she’s just trying to fix things – if she just leaves, it’s really not fixing anything.

Meanwhile, we see Tamra shaking her vapid head and saying she just can’t handle this right now… and she walks out the garage door with a glass of red wine in her hands.  Rut roh… this isn’t looking good – Hold on to your Gucci bags and your Jimmy Choo’s everyone! She’s scaring Heather but not so much that Heather gets up to follow her out.

Lydia acknowledges to Alexis that while she doesn’t know the whole situation, she does know that when Alexis throws around the word “bully” that it causes an immediate reaction.  Lydia thinks they were all just saying their side of the story.  Lydia says that it was definitely ungracious when Tamra just kind of snapped and said, “Get the F*** out of here…Lydia’s never really seen that before… don’t you kind of feel sorry for Lydia – cuz you know they’re all going to turn on her at some point this season, no? Meanwhile you see Tamra creeping up to the side of the car without saying anything… eavesdropping on their conversation.  Lydia thinks they were just trying to state their point of view that she doesn’t think they were bullying Alexis – and for Alexis to use the word “bully” that it’s such a huge thing to say – people commit suicide over being bullied… Alexis blurts, “And I had to go on Xanax for it, Lydia!”  In her talking head, Alexis explains that Costa Rica did a number on her and she had to start taking some medication for it…)… Lydia maintains she doesn’t think it’s bullying and Alexis told Lydia that she didn’t walk in her shoes for that month of her life… Wait, only a month?  Hmmm… then Alexis says that someone tears you down and tears you down… Vicki reassures Alexis by saying, “It’s not fair, it’s not fair.”  Lydia says people kill themselves when they’re bullied so Alexis concludes that she has to die – that then she needs to go home and slit her wrists.  Whoa… that’s a little over dramatic, no?  Lydia says, “Well, you signed up for this, though…”  In a shockingly mature talking head, Lydia tells us that she supports Alexis but that doesn’t mean she’s just going to say whatever Alexis wants to hear – that’s not a true friend.  Wow – Lydia is just not going to last long in this franchise – she’s really too good for it. Alexis continues her thought process, “And just because they’re not pushing or hitting…” Suddenly, Lydia sees that Tamra is listening in on their conversation and alerts the others by saying, “The host came…” Tamra, with a cat who ate the canary grin on her face, says, “Evidently, I heard a lot about what you said.”  Vicki asks her what she’s mad about now… and Tamra says, “Nothing.”  Vicki says, “This girl is crying – do you not have compassion for people who are sad?”  Tamra says, “Listen, if my life turned in a direction where people were saying things to me, I would take a good long look at my life.” (Okay, where do I sign-up to tell Tamra a thing or two?  Lol…) Vicki asks her, “How do you know she hasn’t?”  Alexis said that her therapist never had to worry about her until that Costa Rica trip happened.  Tamra says, “Well, maybe you shouldn’t be around us, Alexis.”  Alexis said that she thought there might have been a glimmer of hope that Tamra had as a person, too… since in the last few months, even though the girls crushed Alexis – she has worked through a lot of her issues.  Alexis tells Tamra that she came to support Tamra… wait, I thought she came to support Vicki?  Well, I guess you can have 2 goals, no?  Tamra said that she was more than gracious (dangit, there’s that word again) and just because Alexis feels a certain way, it doesn’t necessarily mean that’s how everyone else feels.  Alexis says, “When you’re being constantly intimidated and pushed… When you are the weaker person it’s being bullied.”  Whoa, did Alexis just say she’s a weaker person?  Tamra says that since Alexis is playing the bullying card that she should go home and be bullied there.  Tamra arrogantly walks off thinking she’s won this battle.  Tamra is still the queen of mean, according to Alexis – but she has God on her side. Yes, I’m sure God is just so pleased when you attempt to use Him as genie to magically make everything okay when you’re involved in these petty little games.

Tamra returns to her viper den and proudly announces that she listened in on Vicki, Alexis and Lydia’s conversation for about 5 minutes before they even knew she was there.   Gretchen says, “Oh… I like it.”  By the way, we see other people who are seated at the table but who have not said a word and they’re identified for the first time.  One is named “Heather” and is identified as Gretchen’s friend and there’s a “CJ” and a “Cory” who are both identified as Tamra’s friends.  Tamra says that Vicki, “Was up Alexis’ a**” (such a class act, that Tamra)… and that Lydia was actually standing up for all of us.  Gretchen was surprised at this news and thinks it’s awesome that Lydia could see through Alexis and her bullsh** within 5.2 seconds of knowing all of us… this is a cool chick. (Gag)  Vicki and Lydia decide to go back in and retrieve their purses from the snake pit so they can leave.  Lydia tells the vipers, “We’re going to leave” and they stammer out excuses… that after all it’s 12 o’clock at night… Alexis is sad… Tamra says, “Really?” Heather thinks they should let Alexis go home and they stay because after all, Tamra is having a psychic come. I would have paid money to see how Lydia and Vicki reacted to the psychic. They start talking about opinions and Tamra expresses that she doesn’t know what team Vicki is on… and Vicki says she’s on Vicki’s team… Tamra is wondering why Vicki even likes Alexis but surmises it’s because Vicki ran to her when she and Tamra had a falling out…  Vicki says it’s because she didn’t really know her before.  Tamra thinks it’s just weird… Vicki says it’s weird that she and Tamra broke up… Tamra insists they didn’t break-up but that they just had a fight. I wasn’t aware they were dating?  Who knew? In her talking head, Vicki says Tamra thinks she can hurt people and that they can just forgive her…”Bulls***… we broke up.”  Vicki tells Tamra she doesn’t understand why everyone is making such a big deal about the word “bully” and Tamra says it’s because Alexis used it and Vicki encouraged her to do so.  Vicki insists she never said that Alexis was bullied… Tamra tells Vicki to leave and live in her dream world but that she’d rather be with the other snakes at that table who know what life is about. Yeah, it kind of didn’t make sense to me, either.  Vicki asks Tamra how she got so perfect?  Vicki tells Tamra that she never said the word bully.  Tamra said tells Vicki that she was encouraging Alexis in the car.  Bad Vicki!  Tamra said that even Lydia had the brains to tell Alexis that she wasn’t being bullied… Then Tamra really pushes Vicki’s button by saying, “Evidently, Lydia is a little bit smarter than you.”  Vicki immediately says, “No, she’s not!”  They’re both talking as if Lydia wasn’t sitting right there.  Vicki then backpedals and says maybe they’re the same – since she doesn’t know anything about Lydia’s IQ.  Lydia says she’s a genius, just so you know… and laffs… Lydia is handling this pretty well, I think.  Vicki says she is leaving, “Exit stage left.”  Lydia somehow genuinely says to Tamra, “Thank you for having me.”  As Lydia and Vicki walk out of the empty warehouse through the garage door, Tamra gives them the finger behind their backs.  Nice, Tamra – but I expect nothing less from you.

Tamra tells the remaining women that Alexis said she had to go on Xanax because of all of them…. Heather takes great offence to that… Meanwhile inside Heather is going on about how there are various reasons for people needing to be medicated, and Alexis’ little rich girl problems aren’t don’t count. Heather doesn’t understand why Alexis chooses to put herself back into a group of women who have caused her to go on anti-anxiety medication.

Vicki says Tamra has humiliated every single person she has come in contact with… Vicki doesn’t agree with how Tamra handled Brooks, Slade, Alexis, Jim, Jeana and Vicki herself – and that one day Tamra’s going to wake up and she’ll be on her own little island all by her little lonesome.

PrayingCharlene the charlatan (psychic) magically shows up.  Tamra says that we want to bless this building because we just got “the toxic out.”  Umm… no, you guys are still there, duh!  Heather thinks they just may need an exorcism to get out all the negativity.  Then as they stand in a circle while holding hands, the charlatan calls on the ascended masters and their spirit guides to assist them in the celebration.  Whoa, holy theosophical cult, batman!  Yeah, I’m guessing some people of faith would have issues with this whole thing… but it’s okay, because it’s not like Tamra actually believes in anything anyway… As Tamra is praying she’s wishing for success and a really hard body. Yeppers, that’s our Tamra!

Briana’s day was terrible because Troy was sick.  Vicki offers to do night duty but Briana says, “No.”  Vicki, like usual, is serving dinner to Briana… Vicki is thankful Troy came into the world because in a strange way, he helped put a fractured family back together again.  Vicki’s family is flying in the following morning to see Troy for the first time.  When they told Vicki’s mom that she was going to be a great grandmother… she asked Briana what took her so long since she’d been married for 3 long months.  As Vicki and Briana are talking, perfectionist Vicki gets distracted by a dining room chair that’s crooked… and Vicki can’t function with a crooked chair.  Who did this?  Off with their head!  Briana shows Vicki her rings; a wedding band for their elopement; a wedding band from their big wedding; an engagement ring; and, her “pushing” ring.  Vicki sadly remembers that she bought her own first and second wedding rings.  Vicki prays everything goes well for Briana and Ryan.  They reminisce over pictures of Vicki at 25 when she was pregnant with Briana which is interesting because Briana was 25 when she gave birth to Troy.  Vicki hopes Briana has learned from Vicki’s mistakes.  Motherhood has really given Briana some compassion for Vicki. While Briana agrees with Tamra about the subject of Brooks, she also says that what matters in life is family and not all these women who waste your time.  Briana says she loves Vicki, that she’s the best mom ever… then as they hug there’s an awkward arm on a boob or something… I dunno…

Next we see Gretchen is packing so she can fly out to be with Slade because his son’s surgery didn’t go so well. Slade is not eating or sleeping – so Gretchen is going to be with him.  Gretchen’s friend Victor is going to take care of the dogs and will hold down the fort.  In a moment of maturity, Gretchen says she doesn’t want to intrude on Grayson’s mom’s space… and that this whole thing puts life into perspective.  Stupid fights with Vicki and Alexis aren’t important… I think she meant to say, “Stupid fights about who is stupid…” But then, that would just be stupid, no?

Tamra and Eddi are having dinner at Casa Ranchero Mexican Cantina… In her talking head… I kid you not, Tamra says, “Eddie feels very at home at a Mexican restaurant.  It definitely brings out Eddie’s “Inner Beaner.” – and then she snickers.  Whoa… whoa… whoa… Raciscm, party of one?  Okay, let me say… that in this part of the country, that comment is highly offensive!  It’s a horribly racist term used to describe someone of Hispanic descent, usually from Mexico.  It’s shocking to me that Tamra used it to describe her future husband.  What is the saying, “Out of your mouth come the contents of your heart?”  I just shudder… Eddie and Tamra rehash the happenings of the party, with Tamra of course, rewriting history.  Tamra says Alexis is on Xanax and is under psychiatric care because of all of us.  Then she said Vicki said something to piss her off… so Tamra responded with, “If you don’t like it – you can get the f*** out, too.”  I’m totally laffing, because it’s like it’s important to Tamra that Eddie sees her as some sort of badass or something.  Tamra explains that now that Alexis is around, Vicki is a total bitch again.  Eddie wants to change the subject and wants to talk about something good – like when are they going to get married?  He basically tells Tamra that she has a lot to do – since he has no time to work on a wedding and since he doesn’t know anything about planning weddings. Tamra wants to know if this is this a fancy way to push it off?  Is it a problem? Tamra looks like she’s about to cry… Eddie asks if it is a problem for them to put it off until they actually have time to plan a wedding?  I’m thinking, umm… yeah, cuz it’s not like you’re starting a new business or anything and sinking a lot of cash into that…oh wait, timing is important because they want it to be on Bravo’s dime. I almost forgot… Tamra says the original plan was for them to be engaged for a year – but at this point they’ve been engaged for 7 months with no wedding date in sight.  Eddie says that this is a beautiful thing for us and he doesn’t want to stress out about it.  He doesn’t want to suddenly say, “Oh f***, we’re getting married!”  Tamra jumps on him, “Why? Is that what you think now?”  Eddie tells her “No” but it’s too late because he’s pissing her off.  She just doesn’t know why he can’t commit.  Umm… have you looked in a mirror lately?  Tamra doesn’t understand because he’s acting like he has no interest in planning a wedding – well, many guys have no interest in planning a wedding – they just want to show up.  Eddie clearly tells her that wedding planning, “This is completely you – if you want to take on that responsibility.”  Tamra says that if Eddie didn’t want to get married, she shouldn’t have asked.  Somewhere in the distance, you hear “Island girl” playing… well, maybe it was just in my mind….

Billy listenting to RyanVicki’s mom (Joanne), brother (Billy), nephew (Kyle), sister (Lisa), and sister (Kathy) are here for a visit to see Troy.  Vicki explains that her family all wish that Don was still there but that she wishes they would all just get over hit.  Billy seems to like Brooks – but he just wants Vicki to be happy.  Vicki thinks that if she’s happy – then what else is important? After all, she’s not asking her family to date Brooks.  Vicki’s mom shows off her new driver’s license picture.  She’s excited that she passed!  Evidently, mom has a lot of road rage.  She describes a situation wherein she hit some guy’s motorcycle and he started swearing at her and saying that she keyed it.  When the police arrived, they asked her if she had any weapons?  Being a true smart ass she said “Sure” and she implied she had a gun in the glove compartment.  That’s just about the time she got arrested.  She thought she was just being funny – but the cops kind of take that stuff seriously these days.  She says that she knows better now.  Vicki says her mother has a lot of balls and that the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Alexis headbandLydia is over at Alexis’ to help her unpack.  Alexis is wearing a headband… What is it about headbands and these housewives?  Lydia asks Alexis how she’s doing after the other night?  Dude, I’m in disbelief (Oh, I get it – this is Alexis trying to be cool).  Lydia has never seen such a spectacle and thinks it was totally ridiculous.  She tells Alexis that she needs to be a functional human being – that she shouldn’t show-up to a party and expect a parade (She must have seen Aviva’s episode from RHONY)  Lydia tells Alexis that we’re called to be a bigger person (“as Christians, is implied but not stated) She is supposed to forgive “70 x 7”.  Alexis has done the math and thinks she’s done it enough, thank you very much.  In her talking head, Lydia explains that in the Bible that Jesus says we’re supposed to forgive 70 x 7 times – which basically means there’s no end to your forgiveness.  Alexis asks Lydia if she would want to put herself around women who hate you like that?  Lydia says, “No” and that she would have never gone to Tamra’s party.  Lydia says that you can get stuck in a rut by keeping score of who did what to whom and when…and delude yourself into thinking they should roll out the red carpet for you when you show up.  She says that if you believe that then you’ll be a loser.  Lydia sincerely asks, “Why do you think they all gang up against you?”  Lydia thinks it has to come from somewhere because it just doesn’t add up… it seems so bizarre to her.  In her talking head, Alexis wonders if Lydia actually saw what happened at the table that night.  Alexis tells Lydia that she needs to ask that question of Gretchen, Tamra and Heather to know why they’re acting like that.  Lydia has a different solution – she wants to focus just on Heather at this point – since she already knows her.  She wants to take one battle at a time and insists that maybe it’s all just a misunderstanding.  She wants to meet with Heather but Alexis so not going to do that.  Alexis is over it.  In her talking head, Lydia says she can see why they don’t like Alexis because anytime you say even constructive criticism, she gets really emotional and defensive about it.  Lydia is confident that Alexis can muster up the strength to reach out to Heather.. but Alexis doesn’t want to be bullied again. She doesn’t want her to be attacked or belittled again.  Her life is full. Afterall, she’s got the G-O-D.  At this point, Stars sighs deeply and just hangs her head…

Vicki reconstructed her backyard grotto and they’re making s’mores… woo hoo… Sounds like a recent campfire conversation… but I digress.  I’m guessing no CJs at this one…Vicki’s mom and Briana’s husband, Ryan are talking about Brooks and that they’re worried about golddiggers who sniff around Vicki.  Ryan says that Brooks is different behind closed doors but that it’s just a fling – something just to fill time.  Gee, and how well did Vicki know you before you married her daughter again?  Vicki feels that Ryan is always watching her.  Ryan sits down with Billy and talks about their living situation.  Briana and Ryan have lived there for 2 months…They have told Vicki that Brooks is not welcome there and that he can’t come over tonight or any other night.  Ryan even put up cameras all over the place.  Vicki made a verbal agreement with them that while they were living there and paying rent that Brooks wouldn’t come there.  Ryan says that they don’t want Vicki to be single – but they want her to find someone of good character and values.  He tells Billy that the more he and Briana found out about Brooks, the more shocking it was.  Billy asks for specifics.  Evidently, they went to Mexico for the weekend and they saw two women who were clearly prostitutes.  Brooks said something like he wonders if they’re worth it and he starts staring them up and down while making perverse sounds.  Brooks evidently gave Ryan the whisper sign which in “bro code” means to keep it on the down low.  Ryan says that just because he’s also from the South that it doesn’t mean they’re “bros.”  They told Vicki about the incident, but Vicki just doesn’t want to hear it.  Ryan says that 2 years from now he will still be Vicki’s son-in-law. Billy tells Ryan if Brooks is still around, that he will have to make amends with him.  Ryan says, “No,” he’s not going to do that… Ryan thinks you’re responsible for how you act and that they’re just looking out for what’s best for Vicki.

Meanwhile, Heather is in a car with her daughter Collette who is shouting undecipherable monosyllabic words and causing her mom to go crazy.  She recognizes that Collette has something to say but that she doesn’t have the words to say it yet… and she concludes she’s so lucky she’s cute…  She’s funny, adorable and a terror all wrapped into one little package.

Billy, Vicki and Michael (Vicki’s son) meet at a restaurant.  Billy asks Michael if he lives around there?  Michael tells him, “Yes, right across the bay.”  Vicki evidently doesn’t know Michael’s address, since in the past she’s been known to show up unannounced on game day and embarrass Michael in front of his friends.  Vicki says she doesn’t know Michael’s address and she never will. Wow. Michael says he always thought he would have wanted to be a young parent – but he’s changed his mind.  Vicki tells him to be sure to use a condom – that he needs to use protection every time.  They flip it back on Vicki… does she use one every time?  Billy asks Vicki how long are Briana and Ryan going to live with you? Billy says he thinks there’s tension.  Billy doesn’t like the fact that it seems like Ryan is telling Vicki what to do and that he’s controlling her home.  Vicki talks about the cameras and that the tape is going 24/7 – there even have night vision cameras.  Billy reminds Vicki that it’s her house.  Vicki says it’s why she can’t have Brooks over.  Billy says that just because Briana and Ryan pay you $1,000 a month in rent, it doesn’t give him the authority to run your house – It’s YOUR house… Billy says Ryan shouldn’t tell her who she can date or who she can have come over to the house – it’s not right, it’s ridiculous.  Michael says he keeps his relationship with Brooks on a superficial level – they talk about football and stuff.  Briana is way more passionate about it…Billy says that Ryan isn’t even part of the family… (Ummm… actually, he is)  Billy thinks if Ryan doesn’t want to deal with Brooks, then there’s another conversation to have – “there’s the door.”  Vicki just sits and rubs her temples.

The Beginning of the End

Welcome back Castaways. Last week, Malcom was voted out. The Three Amigos were down to two. This week, back at camp after that council, Reynold is feeling pretty salty that after all this time, hsur1e’s still here. He thinks he has the ability to win the all of the next immunity challenges, which, is the only way he’ll survive in the game, and he knows it. Eddie is feeling the joy too as he’s managed to ride coat tails all the way through day 30. Andrea is off talking to Cochran. She notes that they need to make a move. If they (fans) win all the rest of the immunity challenges, they could control the game. Cochran says that isn’t going to happen. TH Cochran says that all the power rests with the alliance of six. The fans have nothing. He wants to suck up as much of that power for himself. What he’s saying is he’ll screw anyone he has to to get ahead in the game. He’ll do it without remorse or reservation. He says it scares him to say it, his mother would be shocked, but he’s not the little Harvard nerd that was trembling in the bushes last time. Okay, Cochran….

Day 31… The castaways are ready for another reward challenge because they want food. Instead, it’s tree mail and it reads.. “Shaky footing or loss of control, could put you out of this game. Lose focus for even a moment, and tonight you could lose your flame”. Yes, kids, it’s an immunity challenge. No reward challenge this time around. Erik is disappointed. Reynold knows he has to win, everyone else, knows he must not. The stealthy six are gunning for him.

See the picture. These floating doghouse roofs are there for an endurance challenge. There are 3 stages and you see them standing at the first stage. After 15 minutes, they will move to thesur3 second stage, and then after 15 more minutes, they will move to the top. Last one standing, wins immunity. There’s a twist. Food is offered to get people to quit. Also, whoever wins will get information that may or may not help him/her in the game (it’s the clue to the hidden immunity idol that Malcom paid $480 for and never found).  Let’s get started. Probst right away brings out a plate of donuts and a glass of cold milk. Erik and Eddie decide to share that treat and jump off right away, giving up immunity for some sugar. I think Eddie asked what kind they were, Probst said “fresh” has he bit into one. So there are 5 left. They are all okay with Erik giving up the shot at immunity and Reynold is okay with Eddie doing so. At the end of 15 minutes, they move to the second stage. Probst brings out 3 hot dogs and a soft drink (pop). Cochran decides his legs can’t take anymore and amid scowls from the women, he jumps off to claim his lunch. It’s quite windy but the remaining 4 are holding their ground pretty well. Reynold has a couple mis-steps but does recover. Dawn is perched like a rock as are Brenda and Andrea. That doesn’t last long as the 30 minute marker comes and they now have to stand on top. That’s a 5 inch wide board with an obstruction running down the middle of it. They can’t firmly plant their feet. It’s quite windy, Dawn falls off followed by Sherri. Reynold is waivering, Andrea and Brenda are pretty solidly perched on top. He isn’t too long for the challenge though as he finally falls off leaving, the two women. They at first discuss a deal, Andrea offers to share that clue if Brenda jumps. Brenda says beat me in the game or give up yourself. After 3 hours of them standing on top of those things, they start talking deal again. Neither one trusts the other but they decide, to add a 4th phase to the game. Each will lift her left leg and who ever can stay on to of the roof the longest, wins. After a few seconds, Brenda falls off and Andrea wins immunity and the little clue scroll. Yay for her, I guess.

Back at camp, everyone is slapping Andrea on the back for winning. I have to admit, they all did far better than I ever could have. After seeing what a strong physical competitor she is, Andrea wants to blinsur4dside Brenda. Vote her out. She does share that clue with Brenda and in fact, shares it with her entire alliance. They all go to the well where Malcolm was digging (on the wrong side of the tree) and Erik finds the idol. He immediately hands it over to Andrea. Much to Cochran’s chagrin because he thought for a split second, he could use Erik and that Idol to further his own game. Before he could open his mouth however, Erik gave the idol right up. Dumbass. Actually she kind of snatched it from his hand. So now she has both personal and hidden immunity idols. Pretty much puts her in charge of the game for the next council. She says she wants to get rid of Reynold but is still considering Brenda. TH Cochran says that these two women jockeying for a spot in the final 3, probably spells the end of this alliance of six. There is some other chatter that really doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. The target, is Reynold.

They head off to tribal council and are ushered in by Probst. The jury is seated and the Probsting begins. He asks Eddie why he gave up so easily. Eddie answers that basically he knew he didn’t stand a chance in hell of winning immunity so he sacrificed himself and some pride for a few donuts. I don’t know if Erik felt the same way but I’m sure he felt safe so he just simply joined Eddie. The talk turns to when is it the right time to make a move. Cochran says it’s very critical to do it just at the right time or the one making the move will be voted out. After Probst notes that anyone can be voted out at any time, Dawn says it’s a matter of what do you believe and who do you trust. She admits that even she, has turned on people and tattled when she promised to keep her mouth shut. Everyone does it says Andrea after Probst tells her that Dawn just gave one of the most honest answers in the game. To Reynold, Probst says that this must give some hope. Reynold says yeah, at this stage of the game, keep him around and use him for a vote or two. I think Eddie said something along those lines. Look over on the jury bench fellas and ask Michael how well that kiss ass statement worked out for him..

Again, this discussion is of little consequence. Let’s vote. We see Brenda’s vote. She says that she thinks things might have been better for Reynold if he had been a little bit more humble in the game. Brenda, That is the most ridiculous statement I’ve heard yet. Look over on the bench at Pinky who was probably the least humble out of eversur5yone. Cut the shit, please. Meaning, that isn’t the reason she’s voting for Reynold. The people vote, Probst collects them and asks for the hidden idol. No one speaks up, whoever is voted out, goes. 4 votes for Reynold, 2 votes for Eddie (that’s the six), 1 vote for Sherri and 1 for Erik (Reynold and Eddie). Reynold is gone and the fourth member of the jury.

So there you have it kids. The one who was the biggest braggart at the beginning of the episode, is voted off. His pal, Eddie continues to fly under the radar in a lot of ways. One amigo left, says Probst. Reynold took it in stride and was a good sport about it all. He says he had the time of his life and can’t wait to see how it all turns out now that he’s a viewer rather than a player. Before you move on to your days though, there is still more to come on this episode. Double elimination. There is another immunity challenge and tribal council to come here so don’t leave me just yet.

The players arrive back at camp and they’re all celebrating making the final 7. Andrea doesn’t waste anytime planning her next move. She’s talking to Cochran about who to blindside (rather than getting rid of Eddie) for a really big move. She suggests Brenda or Dawn preferably, Brenda. . See the pictsur6ure? That’s Cochran Meehaning Andrea. Just as Dawn would run and spill the beans every time she got wind of somebody’s plan, Cochran is doing the same to Andrea. The flaw in Andrea’s plan is this. Cochran and Dawn are tight. Have been since the beginning. Dawn and Brenda want to vote Eddie out but Cochran notes that Andrea isn’t going to get behind that. TH Brenda says now that she knows Andrea wants her out of the game, it’s time for Andrea to get her walking papers. Simply tit for tat.

Day 33 and Imsur7munity Challenge time. There is a rope connecting those platforms to the posts in the foreground. Each player will begin on one of the platforms and on Go, will drag a buoy along the rope winding it through the obstacle in the middle to get to the post. They have to be careful how they do it because a wrong move could sur9hang them up (we’ve seen this before). Once they get to the post, they have to untie a bunch of knots in another rope so they can grab a key. That key will unlock a trunk that holds 10 rungs for a puzzle ladder that they have to complete, from the bottom up, in order, so they can climb up the tower and release a flag to win immunity.

sur8

sur11Okay, let’s get this party started. At Go, they all grab their buoys and jump in the water. Erik is first to the obstacle with the buoy and is on his way. The others, except Sherri are close behind him. She is having trouble negotiating the rope obstacle. They all get to the keyposts at around the same time, separated only by a few seconds. There are about a dozen knots to untie to release that key. Erik finishes first followed by Andrea. Eddie gets his next followed by Brenda. Cochran, Dawn, and Sherri are still working on the knots and never really regain a footing in this game. The others are too far ahead of them by the time they get their trunks unlocked. At first, Erik has a little bit of trouble but as soon as he figures out what to do, sur12He becomes the ladder puzzle zen master and leaves the others biting his dust. He finishes his ladder, races up, pulls the rope that raises the flag, Erik just guaranteed himself a spot in the final six by winning individual immunity. The only ones who even came close to challenging him were Brenda and Eddie. I don’t think Andrea even past the first rung on the ladder. There are 4 possible ways each rung could have been placed on the ladder and most spent a lot of time fumbling. Erik seemed to be able to visualize where each piece would go. Rewind a little bit in Survivor history. The last time Erik won an immunity challenge, he gave it away to some girl (I think), and was sent home that same night.

Okay. This doesn’t botch anyone’s plans because Erik was never a target.Not today anyway. Back at camp, they congratulate him. TH Erik calls the idol a safety blanket that can get him further in the game. In other words, he isn’t going to make that dumbass mistake twice. Andrea is still pushing to send Brenda packing in a blindside and has as much as promised Eddie and Sherri final three if they help her out. There’s a little bit of backstabbing chatter going on but what it boils down to is this. It’s either Andrea (unbeknownst to her) or Brenda (who knows of the planned blindside). Remember, Andrea has the hidden idol and everyone knows it with the possible exception of Eddie. Andrea believes she is fully in charge of this game at this point and Cochran would like nothing better than to get rid of a player who actually thinks ahead. He says he admires a player that has a plan but when her plan doesn’t include him (he wants to be a part of everybody’s plan), it’s time for her to go. He also notes that Eddie is moving further and further up on her scale of who to go to final 3 with. The decision is to split the vote between Andrea and Eddie. If she plays the idol, he’s gone. If not, She is. This of course isn’t Andrea’s plan so Let’s see if Andrea is as in charge as she thinks she is, shall we?

Tribal council.. You know the drill by now. The Probsting begins with Eddie. He is the last one who is on the outside of the group. If someone decides to make a move at this council and he survives the night, it won’t matter because he’ll still be in that spot at the next one. Tonight is the perfect night for a blindside. Probst to Brenda… What’s going to happen if there is no blindside? People are going to start lying to each other and someone is going to get hurt, that’s the nature of Survivor. Sherri definitely believes people are lying to each other. The discussion revolves around the fact that everyone is lying to everyone at some point. Andrea spills what everyone already knew, She has the hidden idol (Malcom chuckles at this).. Probst to Cochran, that’s a big deal at this point. He agrees, it’s very powerful, just as much as the immunity necklace that Erik has. Typically the idol can only be played until final 4 so there are limited chances left to play it. She says that if she feels paranoid by what is going on around her, she would probably play it. Remember folks, Every single idol that has been played in this game was unnecessary.

Let’s vote. Andrea votes for Brenda because she feels that she is a threat. Brenda votes for Andrea stating “You’re a sneaky snake little girl, always ready to blindside someone. But, I don’t think you’re ready for this one”. Probst collects the votes and polls for the idol. sur13 Andrea does not play it. The grins on Brenda’s and Cochran’s faces are priceless. Probst reads the votes. First round, Brenda, Andrea, Eddie. Second round, Eddie, Andrea, Brenda. Andrea is shocked I tell you, just plain shocked. Ruhroh, Next vote decides it and it is for…… Andrea.  The peanut gallery on the jury seats are loving this. I think with the exception of Pinky. She was his pal in the game. She smiles, says that was good, takes her torch for the snuff. Seemed to take it in good sportsmanship that she got beat at her own game. Next week kids, get the hankies out. Family fun time visits. Also, Cochran may be in trouble and Erik is starving to death. We’ll see how it all plays out.

Watch it here  at your leisure. Close ad and watch as free user – Start Video (you may have to press play as well). Download nothing and just close any pop up windows. Some players may ask you to enter a word or phrase to proceed. I’ve tried that, successfully, with no ill-affects that I could see. That is, I’m suggesting it’s safe to do so. Ask if you need help with that. You can also watch at CBS.COM (with the commercials and it is torture because you can’t skip them).

See you next week. Til then,

Peace, MTH aka WTFIJeff

    Good morning everyone. Happy Friday eve. Woo hoo! No rain today & 8t looks like its going to be a great 1st weekend of May.

    Well don’t work to hard & have a great day. 🙂

  2. Good morning – Thank you MTH and Starrs for the blogs today. I couldn’t watch Survivor because the Seattle protests/riots preempted it, so I watched OC. I guess Tamra is being reamed for calling Eddie a “beaner”.and the bleeped it out last night. I have never heard that term and had to look it up in the urban dictionary. Bad Tamra – bad. She claims it is a nickname and he calls her cracker as her nickname. Run Eddie Run!
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=beaner

    Special thank you to Starrs who stayed up all night to write us the blog only to find out I had posted the morning blog and didn’t see her email. 😦

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Oh that Tamra…she is so charming in her mind!! I can’t believe Bravo bleeped it last night but not the first night. Seems stupid-Tamra tweeted about saying all week anyway.

    • kit9 says:

      Who thinks that Tamra is lying saying Eddie calls her a cracker? But, she had to say something and apparently saying that they’re both racist was the best lie she could come up with.

    • Dixie says:

      Although it is bad enough that she said, when you realize that she did not say at the spur of the moment but in her talking head, that makes it even worse. You know she practices what she is going to say for her talking head segments, so that was a totally intentional, rehearsed statement. Words fail me.

      • Stars99 says:

        ITA, Dixie… In addition, I think she has a list of pre-written insults ready to hurl whenever the situation suits her… and I think Gretchen is trying to do the same thing – but is just not quite smart enough to pull it off… it’s rather sad, isn’t it?

  3. TexasTart says:

    Good morning! I think a warmer version of Nebraska just blew in…winter in May. The strangest thing ever. Crazy busy here, will havebto read about Crazytown and Survivior later. Hey, I predicted Nene meant Porsha should go! I’ll still watch the interview even though they gave away the tease over something to be revealed.

    Many topics I would have chimed in on yesterday and in short form; I have little patence of all the oblivious and inconsiderate people out there. I am nice as they come if you are too. Otherwise…well enough said. And I will rock the RayBans indoors for a bit because they are RX too…and they do work wonders when you are on a mission and not time for chit chat. 😉 lol Lisa, when I grow up maybe I too will say what’s really on my mind…you too PP! Lol. Hey, Lainey, glad you had a good time and thanks for the thumbs up report on the food at ACL. Catch y’all later. I swear it’s not cold as most of you know it, but this HAS to be the coldest day ever in May.

  4. Another sunny day. I’ve started biking to work so I appreciate the warm sunny mornings. Makes it much more pleasant!

    • Powell says:

      Ooh. Good for you. 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      good job!!! I came home and cleaned a bit. That was good exercise…it’s amazing how much I DON’T bend anymore. I bent to clean stuff up better today and the lint balls, cobwebs and grossness has gotten bad because of my lack of bending. I’m sweating now. I need to bend more. Please don’t tell my husband I said that.

    • Cityside says:

      I don’t know why, but I read that as bikini. Then the “warm sunny mornings” kinda verified it for me.

      he he he

  5. Lulu says:

    Good Morning All! Went to my Ob appointment yesterday and there is sign of activity. I’m not due till May 25th. But my OB seems to believe that it will be much sooner. Is that typical for #2? So I’m going crazy with my plans that were originally set over the course of a few weeks. Trying to get as much done before he comes.

    If I had a Son in law that was as invasive as Ryan is that just wouldn’t fly with me. I get he is looking out for Brianna but that’s his MIL and HER house. He should be more respectful and stop holding Troy and Brianna leaving over her head if she doesn’t comply with his rules. Vicki is not a pushover but I think in this case she has to lay down some ground rules.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Lulu-my second baby was a c-section so they planned the date 2 weeks before I was actually due so I never went into labor with either of my kids. My first was baby was late and a ultra sound showed she moved into full breach position-with her little butt completely down! I had a c-section 2 days later. I don’t know if 2nd babies are earlier but at least you know what expect!!

      • Lulu says:

        That’s for sure. So #1 was right on the due date emergency C-section 6inch cord. No activity whatsoever till almost a week prior. This one an attempt at VBAC activity a few weeks ahead. I don’t think I’ll go into labor early but you never know.

        • iceNfire says:

          imo – only the baby knows. My 1st was 2 weeks “late” and doctor wanted to induce. I refused and I’m glad I did b/c when baby was born 2 days later he only weighed 6 pounds so he needed that extra 2 weeks. I don’t remember if #2 was “on time” but the labor was much shorter and #3 came so quickly I gave birth with no one in the room except my husband 15 minutes after the doctor told me I had another couple hours to go. All will be well Lulu 🙂

        • Powell says:

          Lulu your little guy sure is making up w/plenty of activity these days. Wait til you tell him when he’s 10 that he knocked over a lamp & it hit you. 🙂 I’m excited for your family. How’s Mr. Lulu handling the possible early due date?
          Did that moron of a landlord send over pest control to spray for those termites? If not it really has to get done asap.

        • princesspindy says:

          I had a VBAC with my daughter and after 50 hours of labor, wha la, baby.

    • Orson says:

      Ryan is still a Marine, right? He can see his Housing Officer to get Married Enlisted Housing. Of course, it may not be as posh as his mother in law’s mansion in OC. Frankly, I really think they need to get away from Vicki. She’s sort of calmed down now, but I can’t see her turning off over 25 years of MAJOR CONTROL ISSUES in, what, 8 months without major therapy. And I can’t see her admitting she needs psychiatric help. And for the love of Goddess, quit getting glitter on the baby! Hell, should a woman that age be wearing glitter?

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

    Great blog Starzy!! Well worth the wait-you are hysterical!!
    Gretchen is my new most annoying HW!! She is stupid!!!!
    Tamra has to see how horrible she looks this season-I can’t imagine watching myself act that way and thinking I look good-but she is a crazy person so she probably thinks she looks like a bad ass-when in reality she looks like an raving idiot!!
    Heather showed her true colors when she let Tamra talk to her that way-she needs to be team Tamra and she knows it-what a moron!!!!

    • Catseye says:

      I agree!

    • ladebra says:

      ^5

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’m still reading the first one. I copied and pasted into my work documents so I could peek at it every now and then. So funny Starz!!! It may take me awhile, but your writings, musings, etc are definitely worth the effort. LOL!!!

    • Stars99 says:

      Franks, the REAL Jill… It really is shocking when you think they actually watch themselves and instead of changing their behavior for the good.. they go more evil… it’s very, very odd to me… I’m not sure quite what I think about Heather… sometimes there’s a glimpse of hope… but then just as quickly she dashed it into the ground… her whole “I’m glazed” from last week put me over the edge…. but that doesn’t mean I’m not quoting that over and over…lol

    • Powell says:

      I wonder what the other ladies at the dinner were thinking cause she sure looked like a raving maniac.

  7. plainviewsue says:

    Stars, you seriously give the most complete recap!!! For people who don’t watch that trainwreck, you just need to read her recap. Perfection!

    Just one thing that I had noticed. When Lydia, Vicki and Lex were in the limo, it looked to me that Lydia saw Tamra before she announced that she was there. You can see her eyes flick over. She then made her statement that she didn’t feel Lex was bullied. I didn’t like that, cos it seemed that she wanted to make sure she would be on Tamra’s good side.

    From what I’ve seen on twitter, Tamra and Lydia are friends, as are Heather & Lydia.

    I don’t like the word stupid, but that truly is and always was Gretchen. She is an idiot.

    • ladebra says:

      Production set up. I would go so far to say they filmed it over and over until they got the right shots.

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Sue – You’re right… it’s an absolute trainwreck… And I didn’t catch what you’re talking about the look on Lydia’s face when she saw Tamra eavesdropping… Great Catch! = )

  8. I made a Survivor Spoilers page to discuss and dissect in case there are any other survivor crazed people like me

    https://lynnfam.com/survivor-spoilers-page/

  9. HuskerHuny says:

    Stars99 – you do a stellar job on your recaps. I just don’t have any more words to describe the atrocious behavior of some of these individuals (I won’t call them women because that would be a major slam to all of the wonderful women on this board).

    I too noticed that they bleeped Tamra’s racial slur last night. Can she be anymore unaware of what comes out of her mouth? As for the bleeping, if it was offensive last night, why wasn’t it offensive on Monday night? I don’t know about all of you, but hearing people such as Tamra and Kim Z. use four letter words so easily just really makes me sick.

    I haven’t decided yet if Lydia is being a reasonable individual or just trying to be the cool kid so she can play both sides. Time will tell.

    Vicki is a grown woman. If you want to date that idiot Brooks, date him! If you want to keep your daughter and her family happy, get rid of Brooks. Briana loves her mother and wants to protect her from making another ‘bad’ or should I say ‘wrong’ decision when it comes to choosing men. After all, she has made two bad/wrong decisions in men and Briana sees this as the third. I think we can all agree that when it comes to relationships, Vicki doesn’t make very good decisions (and that includes her friends). Brooks will be another bad/wrong choice if history teaches us anything. But it is her choice; her life.

    Heather and Gretchen – yuck. I just don’t want to talk about them. And Alexis needs to find her backbone and use it.

    I have to go now. I have to put on the winter coat, scarf and mittens and go out and scrape the snow and ice off of my car. Lots of snow on the grassy areas, but it didn’t stick to the pavement. As my husband drove home from work last night, there were cars off in the ditch all over the place. Yesterday I experienced rain, hail, sleet, snow and high winds. All on the 1st of May. It’s going to freeze tonight so my lilac bush will probably not bloom this year. But there is good news, it’s supposed to be in the 70s all next week. Yeah – I’ll believe it when I see it. But I choose to have my glass half full – so it’s going to be a wonderful day!

    • Boobah says:

      HH – I still cannot believe the weather you are having. It’s crazy! I am sorry about your Lilac bush. They are so beautiful and fragrant. That sucks. But you sure have a positive outlook! I hope you get that 70 degree weather.

    • Stars99 says:

      Husker – You’re right… what can be said about all their atrocious behavior? It’s beyond my brain, really… What’s also beyond my brain is the concept that on May 2nd that you have to scrape snow and ice off your car… My brain just exploded! Warm thoughts to you! = )

    • Powell says:

      Husker if Vicki wasn’t so afraid of being by herself she wouldn’t continue to make the mistake of choosing the wrong man. Because Donn wasn’t filling her love tank, I know you all, why’d you say love tank Powell? Gag me right? But Brooks was sending her those cards on a daily basis w/words she wanted to hear from Donn but didn’t. It’s beyond my comprehension as to why she can’t see what Brooks’ game is but if she wants to date him,.date him & don’t let Brianna dictate her life.

  10. Catseye says:

    Heather’s Bravo blog is up. She’s taking offense at the “cyber bullying” going on with Twitter, etc. Apparently it’s too much for her when others are making comments about certain people’s looks, religion, etc. And if they continue it will be the “ultimate karma hit.” Interesting comment from someone who has been so vile, herself. (And I guess the “cyber bullying” is only okay when she and Tamra engage in it.)

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I just read the blog. I am without words. She truly is the most self-absorbed person I have ever come across. I so wish I had the chance to tell her what I think of her to her face and not have to type it here. I’m sure all of you here would like to do so as well. I’m not hiding behind my computer Heather. I just don’t run in the same social circles as you do and for that, I thank my lucky stars!

      • iceNfire says:

        Well atleast she referred to us as viewers instead of fans but I don’t like to be called a coward hiding behind a computer…Do we need to contact Bravo to get our own reality series? I would watch me on tv 😛

    • jules says:

      I read her blog to Catseye. I even commented on which I never do and Bravo let it through! I’m in shock. It disturbs me that she complains about cyber bullying but can’t take responsibility for bullying Alexis in person! They are a sad bunch of women and I’m glad I don’t watch anymore. Thanks to Stars for blogging and taking one for those of us who can’t stomach it. I appreciate it and enjoy the show more than if I actually watched it.

      • Stars99 says:

        Thanks Jules… I may be taking a collection so I can buy some more “Tums” for when I watch RHOC… lol

  11. T-Rex says:

    Little O-Topic but since we had been discussing the Jodi Arias trial, this is FINALLY going to be handed to the Jury late today or early tomorrow, I hope that they send this biotch to the Hoosegow for the rest of her miserable life.

    • pat says:

      Caught a little bit of the defense’s last witness. What a joke! I can’t believe they wasted everyone’s time with that guy. The defense made a big deal about the fact that he wasn’t being paid “beyond his normal salary” to testify, but he works for a non-profit that DID recieve money for their work on this trial. Such b.s. I thought it was funny when the judge was reading the jury questions, and every time Martinez objected to one of his answers, she sustained the objective and moved quickly on to the next question.

      • Stars99 says:

        Pat – that last witness was just so frustrating to me. The whole idea that just because a summary of charts wasn’t provided from the Prosecution’s psychologist was incredulous to me… It’s like saying that if someone handed in a 40 page research paper… Summarized the findings in 3 pages but just because they didn’t write a one page summary – that the contents and findings of the research paper are all null and invalid. It’s preposterous!

        • pat says:

          Exactly! A complete waste of time, having that guy on, and what a dumb move for the defense to have him as their last witness.

    • Stars99 says:

      My favorite dinosaur – I’m watching the trial.. and it’s making my stomach churn… I was sobbing as Martinez was going through the details of the killing… I can’t imagine having to sit in the courtroom while keeping decorum…

  12. Boobah says:

    Good Morning All! Thank you NMD, SUPERstars, and MelTH for the great blog today.

    I lost track of time last night and missed the first half of Survivor. When I finally put the show on, I was so confused as to why there was a Tribal Counsel ! I am glad they had to two Counsels – it mixes it up. I thought Reynold handled his departure very well. Andrea’s reaction was priceless! She certainly was blindsided – great move. Brenda and Cochran’s devious smiles – best part of the episode, imo.

    I am rooting for Cochran. According to next week’s promo, the others seem to realize he is a threat. I really hope they don’t go after him! He deserves to win this thing. It won’t be easy for him. Even if he makes it to the end, the jury might hold his Harvard education against him.

    As for Eric – I think he will be fine. I know the promo made it appear as though he was starving…but I don’t quite buy it. Imo, that was spin.

    • melthehound says:

      Yeah, we all know how these preview edits are and it’s like that for all shows. “next time on RHO(city)….. “.. They tease a huge fight and it turns out to be a 15 second verbal disagreement. Next. Both Reynold and Andrea took it in stride. The grins on Brenda and Cochran’s faces were indeed priceless. Cochran has shown himself to be quite the player. I haven’t seen him panic yet like he did on his original season. We’ll see if he makes it to the end and how he handles the jury.

      • soxwalsh says:

        Thanks for blogging Survivor MTH. I didn’t get to watch it and thanks to your great blog, I don’t feel like I even have too! Although I don’t care much for any of these contestants, I would like to see Cochran win. The fact that he is such a student of the game and tries to play intellectually rather than emotionally is interesting to me. Otherwise I don’t really care.

        • melthehound says:

          Glad you enjoy the recaps, soxwalsh.. I’m not a huge fan of returning players, at all. In fact, I rather hate it. That said, most of the fans have offered little competition in any aspect of the game and so far, Cochran has pretty much run this game from what I can see. Others may think they have but he knows when to buck the system and when to go along to get along.

          • ladebra says:

            Cochran has really impressed me the 2-3 episodes I have watched. He is calm, and appears to be able to get inside the heads of some key players at just the right time. To me anyway, he’s one step ahead. I hope he continues with this. It’s refreshing to watch a smart player again. (IMO the smartest player, or even the player who played the best game throughout, doesn’t always win).

    • Stars99 says:

      Boobahahahaha – It’s always great to see you! It’s hard to know who to root for in Survivor – I was really rooting for Cochran – but he’s become so danged arrogant… not liking it…

      • Boobah says:

        superSTARS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Always a pleasure to see you too!!! I see what you mean about Cochran, I don’t know why but he just seems so dang harmless. I wouldn’t mind if Eric took the win. He seems like a nice lad.

  13. Shiny says:

    Stars, your recap is a huge improvement on the OC show. Too funny!

    If Brooks were dating my mom, I wouldn’t want to be in same house, either. Especially since he’d leaked (sold?) info to the tabloid types before. Wouldn’t want him anywhere near my baby either. Since Ryan initially thought he’d be deployed by then, I can understand him laying down a rule that new mom didn’t have to have any contact with Brooks in what was going to be her home while he was gone. And after seeing Brooks upclose in Mexico etc, Ryan is reasonable to be protecting his wife from the greasy Brooks. If Vicki didn’t want the agreement, she could have visited her new grandson at a different home and even stayed over there like most grandmas do. And nothing is stopping her from talking to Brooks and seeing him elsewhere. She agreed, so she shouldn’t fuss about it.

    I assume the cameras Ryan installed were for extra security generally with the baby since they are on TV and there are crazies in the world. So why did Vickster think the cameras were all about watching her? Guess she thinks all cameras are focused primarily on her, the “star”. Or by implying that, she gets to play victim that is being spied on so she won’t see Brooks in her home.

    Don’t any of these people ever actually talk to each other and listen to what the person is saying and then try to figure out why they have different views of the same situation. None of them can agree to disagree – they each just have to be Right in their own view at all times – they can’t ever consider that another person might have any valid opinions or view of the situation.

    Need to think of new titles for OC: The Real Screamers and Scammers of Orange County, Delusional PseudoHousewives of OC, The Unbelievably Self-Righteous Housewives of OC….go for it!

    • jezzibel says:

      as a no longer active duty member of the USMC…..Ryan knows the type of person Brooks is and probably has a better measure of him than anyone else, because we’ve all served with guys that are like Brooks, they present one face to the people they are conning/using but have no problem letting the mask slip around people they don’t view as smart enough, or have the kind of pull to get them in trouble for what they are doing. Ryan’s protective measure are for his wife and child and he views Brooks as a threat to them(I can see Brooks sneaking into baby Troy’s nursery and taking pictures of him and selling it to interested parties, or trying to get an embarrassing snap of Brianna to sell as well).I think Ryan is also trying to make Vicki understand the type of person Brooks is, but he needs to just let her figure it out on her own, because the harder he and Brianna push Vicki the more she will run to Brooks to spite them.

      • pat says:

        Good point re Ryan. Didn’t Ryan and Brianna also learn that brooks sold a story about them? About their wedding or being pregnant or something? That alone would be a deal breaker for me. And ought to be for Vickie.

        • iceNfire says:

          Good post Shiny! I thought I was alone on this topic as most here think Ryan has no business not allowing Brooks in Icky’s house. True it is her house but it’s his wife and baby that he’s trying to protect and he has good reason to think the worst could happen with Brooks around. When Briana does take her family and move into their own home….well that will just be Another thing that makes Icky’s life miserable. Maybe she can talk her brother into moving in. Is he married? Does he have kids? Hell maybe she should have her own mother move in HA!

          • pat says:

            Normally I would feel that they have zero business telling Vickie who she can and can’t have in her own home. But I think Brianna explains it well in her blog. Moving in was not just to their benefit, but Vickie’s as well. (Sounds like this super successful business woman needs the rent money.) She said she had broken up with Brooks and he would not be coming to the home. So they moved in. If she is now going to renege on the deal, then they need to move out and move on.

      • ladebra says:

        I think Ryan has every right to his opinion. But if it was my house, he wouldn’t be telling me who I could invite to my home. I really think he and his family need to go live in their own home. But …. Have you seen the script for this year? Cause they aren’t going to move, and Vickie is going to see Brooks, and drama will follow.

        • iceNfire says:

          Hi ladebra – My eldest son was getting a little bossy with me but he recently moved out of state (tho he does check on me Every night to make sure I ride my bike) Middle son is bossy too but I think it’s just his nature and his rules are no big deal to me. (all doors must be locked if there are no cars in drive way) Little son tries and since nobody listens to him I find myself doing as he says (he put me in charge of bottle recycling) just to make him feel important 🙂 I’m not dating anyone at this time b/c I don’t think my husband would approve but if I were to become single and kids didn’t like new b/f I hope I would open my eyes and ears to what was being said.

    • grassynowell says:

      My thought on the Brooks/Vicki/Brianna things is this.

      I don’t trust Brooks.
      I don’t trust Vickie.
      I don’t trust Bravo editing.

      But for some reason, I trust Brianna. So I will continue to be Team Brianna. And in honor of the OC Housewives and their stupid picking sides, I have no decided that I back Brianna forever and ever even when I don’t agree with her. And by forever and ever, I of course mean until there is a better side for me to jump to, in true housewives fashion. =-)

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Shiny… It’s really interesting to me to hear different perspectives about the whole thing – and my mind is spinning from trying to come up with a new title for RHOC… so many options… lol = )

  14. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Breezy day here in AZ. Cooling down into the 80’s.
    Thank you NMD, Stars99 and MTH! Youse guys are the best.
    Whacky Jac’s tweets yesterday were ridiculous. Blaming your autistic son for the costs of treatments?
    Love that pic of Teresa!! I like Tre. I admire how she pushed to make money and get them out of debt rather than sit around and whine.

  15. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Hello All! Hope everyone is well. Great blogs by MTH & Stars.

    Survivor
    Jeff aka MTH the best part of tribal was when Andrea incredulously yelled “WHAAAT”! LMAO That was too rich. The way they edit and whose shown bragging or getting alot of screentime is going home. When I saw Andrea sitting on the lounger with Cochran at her feet, as she was planning Brenda’s demise, I thought Curtains…Bitch! LOL

    RHOC
    Stars thank you for giving such a great recap of the show that would undoubtedly raise my blood pressure SKY HIGH! I refuse to give the show any ratings but am still interested to see if Tamra Heather n Gretchen get theirs. Let’s say your giving me SCHADENFREUDE by PROXY 😉
    As for Vicky’s SIL Ryan running Vicky and the house I say she should play tough and tell them to move. It’s emotional blackmail that is being used to control her and $1000 is a pity sum she’s charging just to help them. Vicky lives in a toney area and Brianna & Ryan couldn’t get a closet for 1000 a month in that area. If she called their bluff i’m sure Brianna would’ve returned home as soon as Ryan was shipped off. This really proves that Vicky is a great Mom that would put up with anything to have her daughter safe and grandson near.

    As for Lydia she’s giving me Peggy tease, like she came on to be Alexis’ buddy and will become friendlier with the others. I wonder how understanding of the Trampa, Pleather and Wretchen she’ll be when they start calling her ‘JesusJaws”? (credit to someone else and i’ll do penance for it. :0 )

    • Catseye says:

      I agree about Vicki only charging them $1,000 a month rent. They couldn’t even get an apartment in a halfway decent area for that. I thought I read that Briana and Ryan were trying to buy a house, but the deal fell through? Not too surprising, if he really did buy her that expensive diamond engagement ring. That could’ve been put towards a down payment. Oh well, I’m sure Vicki will step in, and contribute if need be.
      Maybe it’s because I can’t STAND Heather, but *I* don’t think her kid screaming in the car was at all cute or in the least bit amusing.

      • Stars99 says:

        You are so right, Catseye…

      • pat says:

        I was a little suprised to hear that Vicki needed the rent money, with Donn moving out. (That, according to Briana.) If she doesn’t need the money, why charge rent? Why not let them save up for their own home? Did her son pay rent while he was living there? Briana strikes me as very responsible. She’s not going to take advantage.

    • melthehound says:

      Can’t always tell in the edits who is going home but when one of them thinks they’ve won the game or have a very strong chance of winning, they’re gone.

      “curtains bitch” 😆 hehe

    • Stars99 says:

      Amber – You are SOOOOO right about the $1000 – in this Orange County area $1000 is NOTHING… I mean nothing at all… especially if it’s for rent and utilities… and to live in such an amazing house with a workaholic who is rarely home? It seems that since Briana has become a mom that she has new respect for her… but still… she needs to be thankful for the Gucci roof that Vicki continually works hard to provide to her and her family. I am no fan of Brooks… but c’mon…

      • dch60 says:

        If I recall, Brianna moved into Vicki’s so she could help with the baby because Ryan was supposed to be deployed shortly after his birth. It’s not like Ryan and Brianna, together and separately, haven’t had their own place(s) before. They can obviously afford the area. I’m sure Vicki wanted them there even more than they wanted to be there. If she agreed not to have Brooks over, then she should keep her word and not complain. I agree with what the others said above about the possible dangers with Brooks. And I honestly don’t think Brianna cares about living in a fancy schmancy house. Not her MO.

        Funny that Vicki complained about having to purchase her first two wedding rings yet she can’t see that she’s in the same boat with Brooks. If I were her daughter who probably always had to hear her complain about Donn, especially in regard to Vicki always having to spend her own money, I’d point out that Brooks was no prize either (understatement). Talk about making the same mistake over and over!

        I’m sure, very sure, that Vicki has said previously that if Brianna or Michael ever disliked a man she was dating, she wouldn’t date the man. I hear many mothers say the like. Yet when it comes right down to it, a woman is going to date who she wants to date most of the time. I don’t blame Ryan and Brianna for holding their ground when it comes to Brooks. An agreement is an agreement. I’m sure Vicki would have the biggest problem out of all of them if Brianna and Ryan moved out. I don’t think Ryan and Brianna would be bothered by it one bit.

  16. AZGirl says:

    I wonder if Ryan installed those camera not only for the baby but also to keep Brooks from stealing anything. Brooks is aware they were installed doesn’t he? I just don’t understand why Vicki needs that loser in her life. Just watching him on film spewing his BS gives me the chills.

    • pat says:

      In her blog Vicki said she misspoke about Ryan and the cameras. She was on board with having them installed and she paid for them.

      That was gross. “Achy breaky vagina?”

    • T-Rex says:

      I find it interesting that they were going to have a chiropractic outfit setup in their gym, a full nutrition counselor, etc. none of that is there, to me it’s nothing different then any other fitness studio, in addition, it’s not got a while lot to offer, IMO. We have those LA Fitness places and even the 24 Hour places and they seem to have way more to offer at a FRACTION of the prices that the CU*T is offering. I see an EPIC Fail on this

      • Catseye says:

        Yes, they have a LOT of competition in that particular area and really, nothing at all that sets them apart.

      • Contessa says:

        Hi T-Rex,
        I looked at their website – horrible. When branding a new business the most important thing is to get a really good website – this one is a joke. No showers, locker rooms, etc…
        They don’t have a chance against the big clubs and the private big clubs around their area. Also their hours are very limited; gyms should be open at 5 AM for people that go before work. Tramprat is a joke, as is Eddie and the other 2 witch hags – Heatherstickupherass and Gretched. I do not like Lydia one bit. For a person who is supposed to be friends with Alexis I thought she was condescending about the bullying word. That is what it feels like to Alexis and we also had a professional psychologist say the same thing on national TV (Dr.V). Of course the 3 hags battered her and her license etc., on twitter. They are despicable in my book. This is the only franchise I have watched where I truly dislike someone, I watch only to see how far they can spread their evil. Tramprat is going to come up, later in the season, why she is this way and has anger issues – give me an f’ing break. I guess she has to give the audience some sort of reason for her horrendous behavior. Each season she simply gets worse. Also please note she can only have one very close friend at a time in her life and she decimates other people throughout the season. I can still recall how awful she was when she was calling Slades’s ex on National TV, or saying Jim Bellino was doing and selling drugs (the reason the Bellino’s were talking to lawyers, righ around the time he was opening a business which catered to children). Or how about the time she blew up at Jeanna because she was friendly with Simon and stayed his friend throughout the divorce, and threw red wine in her face at Vicki’s party. She also claimed that Jay P., Gretchen’s boyfriend was calling her – I doubt that I think she was calling him and set this up as a TV opp to humiliate Gretchen over her gold-digger ways. Tramprat is lower than low and I think even Andy is getting tired of her as evidences in a tweet about her behavior on WWHL.

        • Catseye says:

          Speaking of Jay Photoglou, is it true that one of the times/when he sued Gretchen, Tamra was called in as his witness, and she testified against Gretchen? I read that elsewhere. Wow, if it’s true, Gretchen is considerably more stupid than I ever imagined. ESPECIALLY if she’s discussing personal things with Tamra, that she doesn’t want blabbed all over the place. Sooner or later they will have a falling out. Don’t forget, Tamra accused Vicki of calling her from Mexico and saying she’d just woke up naked with some guy, or something similar, at the reunion.
          So true about that dumb gym. Isn’t the whole reason someone goes to a gym, is to use the various equipment and machines offered? ANYONE can buy a stationary bike, weights, kettle ball (?), etc and find a CD or some program on the internet to follow along with and just exercise in the privacy and convenience of their own home.

          • iceNfire says:

            I wondering if Tamra lies can anyone point to a specific lie she has told? That thing about Icky waking up naked in bed with some guy…I’ve always wondered if it’s true – idk

    Good Morning everyone, thanks for the blogs.

    NMD, I totally agree with you about how it was so weird for NeNe to be trying to call Portia out for not being real enough (especially since Kordell was a REAL ass) meanwhile Kenya faked a relationship. IMO Kenya is another Kelly in the making and there ain’t enough jellybeans in the word to get me to deal with that kind of crazy.

    Stars, Thanks for the excellent recap. Again, it the show was 1/100 as entertaining as the way you blog it, I would probably watch it.

    Jeff, I don’t watch Survivor but I love your writing style.

    • lizzle says:

      I agree about the Nene comment regarding Portia… all I can say is.. huh? It sounds like she changed her mind since, but I don’t think she has any room to talk. Also, Kenya is a synonym for the word “fake”. I’m not saying any of them should be off the show, but calling out Portia was wrong, IMO. I guess she also called out Brandi, because Brandi tweeted something about meeting Nene once when she was sober and once when she was drinking at a late night party. Brandi tweeted that Nene should hang out with her a bit more before she starts making judgments… or something to that effect.

      • nyc mama says:

        Apparently she comments on Brandi during her 1 on 1 with Andy this Sunday saying something about her which is what Brandi is commenting on. It is on the commercial but I only saw it quickly in passing and haven’t been on Bravo since to see it again.

        I am tired of Nene and her holier than thou attitude People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

  20. T-Rex says:

    Okay I don’t watch O.ldC.rones but love the blog Stars99 and wanted to weigh in on “camera-gate”. With the technology offered today in home security it’s cheap and easy to install cameras in your home. I live in a middle class neighborhood that have homes that can’t sell so they are rentals and we have a camera for the front and back doors of our home, which we monitor, we don’t have a service, but stickers that say we do. My brother in an upscale neighborhood, but not gated, had his whole house “camera’d” up, there had been thefts during construction of other homes in their area, and he wanted to take any chances with his home or his children, now they hardly use them, but I think once those kids are teenagers they are going to hate that those things are in the house, there won’t be any “keggers” there when Mom and Dad are out of town. Actually, once the novelty of having them wears off, cripes you hardly ever use them. We only use them if someone rings the front door and we don’t feel like answering the door if it’s not important so we will log in to see who is out there. The fact that Ryan is “active duty” leaving two women, with a small baby probably gives him some piece of mind about their safety, it’s caveman mentality, but those two went along with the idea. My other take is that they got those cameras for free by mentioning them on the show from the camera company, wouldn’t put it past this LOT to do something like that.

    • lillybee says:

      My neighbor from across the street is a legal MM grower so he has cameras all over the place. He keeps our street safe.

    • Stars99 says:

      My favorite dinosaur – I think it’s sad that we’ve come to having to install cameras all over the place to keep us safe… I honestly don’t know and I haven’t checked into if there are cameras inside or outside of Vicki’s house… I think I would not object to cameras outside of the house… but if they are inside – and are on all the time – I’d have more of an issue with them. I get nannycams – but you just need to turn them on when someone else is taking care of your children. I wouldn’t like to be under constant surveillance 24/7… I do too many gooberhead things… and make too many silly faces… plus, I’d feel compelled to wear make-up all the time… lol

    I apologize if this was discussed earlier, but I was so shocked I had to mention it. I went onto Bravo earlier today and read Alexis and Heather’s blogs. There were lots of comments, maybe hundreds. The ones toward Heather were 99% negative. Now they are gone. Is that normal with Bravo to pull back or is it just a glitch and they will reappear. I have never noticed this before.

    Thank you for the great recap NMD. I really appreciate it!

    • Nancy says:

      That happens all the time. Bravo thinks we’re stupid.

    • noreen7 says:

      Oops – I mean thanks Stars99 for the recap and you to NMD for the Blog and all you do!

      • Stars99 says:

        Noreeen7 – Yeah, it’s amazing what NMD does day in an day out, isn’t it? Bravo is notorious for deleting comments… I mean especially now that they have a box that shows how many comments there are… I had times when I was copying and pasting the RHOBH blogs when I was writing the recaps of them… and when I’d start copying – there were 186 comments… and when I finished coping all the pages there were only 74 comments… it makes your head spin! = )

    • mrs peabody says:

      there’s a lot of negative ones on Heather’s blog right now, I just got done reading them. I guess when Heather was talking about Alexis’s rich girl problems she forgot her own rich girl problem from last year “the piece of the bow being eaten off her name change cake” Oh the problems of rich people.

    • Cartwheels says:

      They always do that, that is why I don’t bother in the least to ever post there.

  23. iceNfire says:

    Tamara posted this to her fb 4 hours ago…isn’t she supposed to be working?

    • iceNfire says:

      Her followers are just as bad as she is. One of them looked into the person that posted negative comment, got all her info. and is suggesting everyone call her employer to get this viewer fired

    • Realhousewifeva says:

      Honestly, Andy Cohen should know what she is doing. Harassing a viewer? People hating her is also part of her job, she needs to ignore it, not give out her info to her “fans”

  24. LaineyLainey says:

    Watching Wendy Williams, not sure if this is today’s or yesterday’s…Paris Hilton is on. Her BF is in the audience. She is 33 or thirtysomething and he is 21 years old. He is nice looking, but then he smiled and he really does look like a manchild more than a man.(when he smiles – when he shows his teeth). She has a multi-billion dollar empire according to Wendy.

    • iceNfire says:

      Thanks Lainey! I usually delete after she does that silly run to chair and does hot topics

      • Powell says:

        Ice I watch up to hot topic too. Sometimes she has on someone from a mag & I’ll watch that.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          that’s funny, ice and powell, I often tune out after hot topics, too.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        “The Silly Run”…it is silly, but it makes me happy when she does that.

    • chismosa says:

      Lainey Wendy is signing books a few towns away from me next Friday. I’m thinking of going with my friend.
      I really love her. I’m so glad she states her opinions and just owns them. She said something about judging women who don’t want children yesterday, she is like in my head sometimes I feel. Lol

      Hope you are well and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY !!!!!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Cheese-mousa…isn’t that a cute name? I think my pre-school teacher brain just takes over…hahah. Any way chismosa…you SHOULD GO to see Wendy, I know how much you love her. She can be too real sometimes…I would be afraid to admit that on the air…what she said about judging women who CHOOSE not to have kids. But as we have discussed, that’s Wendy, and that’s why I and millions of others tune in.

        • chismosa says:

          Yes I know she’s a little rough around the edges, it’s why I love her.

          Thanks, maybe I really will go
          I wonder if the bookstore makes me buy the book there? Or if I can get it on amazon and come in with it

          I really should know this, having worked in publishing so long eons ago :0

      • LaineyLainey says:

        oops, I forgot to say THANK YOU!!!

  25. stellastars21 says:

    Hi Lainey,

    Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!

    I’m 31 (just turned 31 in April) and my boyfriend/sorta fiance lol (I say sorta because he hasn’t officially asked but we are planning the weeding and he has picked up the application to get the permit to have the ceremony on the beach) and he is 21 but will be 22 in June. Anyway it is funny because I was never into younger guys. But he’s the best one out of all the guys before and he acts like an old man hahahaha.

    Anyway have a great day.

    • Catseye says:

      That’s great! And best wishes to you and your fiancé.

      • stellastars21 says:

        Thank you so much! 🙂 I just hope that even though his mother isn’t happy about it and doesn’t particularly care for me that everything goes well and doesn’t put stress on us. I don’t want to give anyone outside of us power over our relationship and kinda childishly I don’t want to give her the feeling of I told you so. And that applies in any aspect like how we keep our home, where we live, if we have kids. Anything that she has an opinion on. But anyway other than that everything else is bliss. Lol.

        • Nancy says:

          stella,
          My bff married a man 10 yrs younger and they are going strong. 🙂
          Congratulations.

        • Stars99 says:

          Congratulations, Stella – My husband is 7 years younger than I am… and although we got married later in life than you are… the age thing isn’t an issue for us. Well, it is for me at times, if I’m completely honest with myself – but it’s not about maturity or communication levels but it’s more about my own issues. I must say that it’s less of an issue for me than it was for my mom who was all of 16 DAYS older than my dad… lol… it was a really big issue for her for some reason…

          • stellastars21 says:

            Thanks. Yeah my mom has a problem with the age thing but she told me that since its not about her and she wants me in her life she’ll get over it. She actually really likes him she just has a hard time accepting people don’t think like her and don’t all want older men only. Lol.

        • Powell says:

          That’s a great attitude.

          • stellastars21 says:

            I’m really trying to stay sane and not let certain things bother me. Thank you.

    • TexasTart says:

      Hey, Stella, I’m happy to hear you’ve found your soul-mate and are making plans! A ceremony on the beach will be so romantic! 🙂

      • stellastars21 says:

        Thanks. It’ll either be at the beach or at a friend’s house that is the closest thing to a mansion that I’ve ever seen. Lol. The beach we want it at only allows 50 including us and we plan to invite about 60. We know everyone won’t come (some would come from another island and another possibly from Philly and that costs $$$$) but just in case they do our friend’s house might be the better option.

    • BB says:

      My DD got married on the beach (the Outer Banks of NC of course). They rented a huge fancy house right on the beach for the week, invited about 50 family members and friends, got married on the beach, had the reception right there, and when everyone left, continued their honeymoon there.

      • BB says:

        Oh, and I meant to say congratulations!

      • Catseye says:

        That’s a really neat idea!

      • lizzle says:

        That sounds perfect BB. Now that I am older and will be paying for a wedding, if we decide to get married… I might steal that idea. Most of my close friends are close enough to OBX and vacation there anyways. It’s either that or a farm. My brother and his wife rented a farmhouse and the barn for his wedding. It was very affordable.

        And happy aniversary Lainey L! Good for you for making it that long.

        And last, but not least… Congrats on the upcoming wedding Stella! That is wonderful. I am 38 and dating a 30 year old, which I never thought would happen. I used to be into much older men. Love just happens. I like that you guys know you are getting married and are planning it, but he hasn’t asked officially. It sounds like you guys are on the same page.

        • stellastars21 says:

          Thanks. I used to be into older men. Mostly 10 – 20 years and I’ve always said I’m gonna marry Al Pacino hahahaha. It is funny how he’s the one who brought the whole thing up. I was surprised at his age he’d want that and with someone my age. I tend to sell myself short I guess so it was a shock that someone that young would want to settle down with someone my age. He does act older though lol. And he says its good cause women usually outlive men by 10 years (no idea if that is true) so he says we can grow old together and go at the same time. Hahaha that’s sweet and he actually is more sentimental than me. My mom says I think like a man. 🙂

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Thank you Lizzle!! You and StellaStars21 have some energetic guys to keep up with you!! 🙂

      • BB says:

        AND….. DD is 4 years older than her hubs.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I am 3 months older than my husband. He loves to point it out during those three months!! LOL!!

      • stellastars21 says:

        Thanks BB. That sounds like a really cool idea. We are planning to go to the same hotel that the Duck Dynasty crew stayed at in the season finale when they came here. Not for that reason lol but because its a nice cool hotel with lots to do when we decide to come up for air ;-).

    • Powell says:

      Congrats Stella. What’s he waiting for? That’s fantastic.news. You have to remind us so that we can wish you well on your big day. 🙂

      • stellastars21 says:

        Thanks. Right now he works for himself and has some personal and business obligations for the next couple months. Then he wants to go work for someone else because he’s tired of the hustle and he doesn’t think he makes enough to provide. That doesn’t bother me in that I think we both contribute, but since I deal with fibro issues he wants me to only work part time if at all so I can rest more from the pain issues and he wants to make enough money for that before he makes it “official”. But since we will eventually get there hopefully by the end of the year he wants to move forward with figuring out how everything will be and buying what we can now to be ready for the big day.
        I will keep you posted.

        • Powell says:

          Keep him Stella. He sounds sweet. Thinking about tomorrow instead of today. I like him. 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Congratulations, Stellastars21. 🙂 Is that why there’s a 21 by your name? For your fianee’? When will you be getting married? I guess this in response to my comment about Paris and her new beau. If so… Well, then you can understand exactly what Paris is going through, perhaps this is the real deal for her, as it is for you. You sound like you are very happy and as I now know from living life, it is short and full of surprises, so BE HAPPY!!! 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      Stella congrats to you and your boyfriend

    • AZGirl says:

      Sounds like a winner to me. Congratulations Stella!

  26. Stars99 says:

    Hey Mel – Great recap… I thought that doghouse challenge was a really hard one… it really favored the girls, I think… but the other immunity challenge was remarkably fair – you didn’t have to be strong and burly to win… you had to know how to untie knots and figure out a puzzle ladder… which I think was much harder than it looked. I bow to your Royal Blogness… = )

    Are we planning a get together in Chicago? (or any other place for that matter)
    I want to go.

    City

  28. Powell says:

    Ok everyone. I fell up the stairs & trying to break my fall landed on my thumb. It’s not broken, sprained or swollen. It’s just hurting more & more. What do I need? Ice pack or heat? And I’m fine. Thk goodness I was at the top & landed on the carpet. 🙂

  29. Realhousewifeva says:

    Juan Martinez is amazing. He truly is speaking for Travis, IMO

    • Powell says:

      I’m watching. Did you watch last night? I went to bed at 12 est & it was still going on. I think it ended at 3am est.

    • Stars99 says:

      I think Martinez did a really great job!

    • pat says:

      I’ve only been able to see a little bit of it so far. But I had the same sense. He is bringing honor to Travis.

    • BB says:

      That was so much fun to watch. Thanks!

    • chismosa says:

      I can’t watch for some reason on this device- but is this the dog that pees on the toilet and then actually flushes the toilet?

    • chismosa says:

      amazzzeeeeeeeee
      I never realized Labs were as smart as they really are. I always hear they make the worst guard dogs because they’ll just lick the burglars to death with love LOL!

      I’m happy it wasn’t a dog on his hind legs so much, i don’t like seeing those so much.

      Thanks for the video!

  31. TexasTart says:

    The last thing I would ever consider doing while my home is being is invades is get on Twitter. Is this whacko or real?

  32. TexasTart says:

    Ramona, I realize Avery was a child not long ago, but that room is a bit too much! Gives me a bout of nausea. Maybe someone likes, so here ya’ go!

  33. TexasTart says:

    No more time to surf twitter, no reading messages 😦 I have more work to do, UGH. Long days. Hope yous has been good!!! 🙂

  34. Cruickal says:

    Ok this is soooo OT but I don’t travel much and I didn’t get many responses on Facebook so here goes… Has anyone used the Priceline thing where you negotiate your own price for a hotel? I was wondering about it since we are planning on a trip to SF and its so expensive everywhere. 😦 so I was just wondering if anyone has used it and has any feedback. I trust the opinions here, not necessarily everywhere 😉

    • Powell says:

      Hi. No I haven’t. I’ve looked at it for airlines to compare prices only. I hopeyyou get a.good deal.

    • stellastars21 says:

      I’ve used it many times. Even when I went to Italy. I got the 5 star Westin Palace in Milan for only $100 per night. It was amazing. I splurged on that one lol. In Naples my room was $39. The trick that I use is that first I browse their site for where I want to stay. For Example In Milan, Italy on the dates I wanna stay and I filter it by 4 and above stars and the area I want to stay. I look at the cheapest hotel they offer and compare pictures and reviews (be careful because some reviewers are never happy with anything and you can by their tone and some people are happy just to have a building to go to). That’s the one you will likely get when you bid. If you feel like you can stay there comfortably then you go to the name your own price option and start bidding at 1/2 the price and see if they accept it and if not increase your bid by 5 or 10 dollar increments. No guarantees of course but so far it has worked well for me. Even if I win a surprise one that I didn’t check out I have no complaints.

      • Powell says:

        Stella I knew someone could help Cruickal. 🙂

      • Cruickal says:

        Wow! That is fantastic Stella!! Thank you so much for the tips! We are not too picky about where we stay, I just read to stay away from the tenderloin area. So I’m hoping we can find a good price, but I think with your tips we can. Thanks so much!

  35. TexasTart says:

    Oh, I forgot this one…no picture, but I was curious for a show of hands – who watched Paula Abdul’s trainwreck…I mean her self titled reality show? My hand is up.

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi TT! – Now I remember what I wanted to tell you! On a previous blog you said Andy has never replied to your tweets…I’ve found that he is usually on twitter 30 minutes prior to WWHL…he replied to me once and I was shocked…He called me Sweetie and I stopped trying to get his attention 🙂

      • iceNfire says:

        Oh and Yolanda responds right after she posts her bog and whatshername that did the Shah’s recap also responded after her blog was posted…

      • TexasTart says:

        Hey, Ice…So that “sweet” talk doesn’t go over so well?! 😛
        Thanks for.the advise on timing posts!

      • chismosa says:

        Ice I hate it when he calls someone Sweetie. I find it so patronizing

        Dismissive or something. It’s never in a good context when he tells someone he’s talking to at reunions or on WWH

        I wonder if the word will come up on the Nene interview– and GUARANTEED it will come up only if he is pointing out something negative to Nene. Just watch ! Never in a loving way.
        Lol

    • princesspindy says:

      I use to watch her show, it was gold!

    • Powell says:

      I didn’t know she had her own show. Iove Paula & her ditzy ways. “I’m forever your girl.”. 🙂 American Idol wouldn’t have had problems holding onto judges if they had just given Paula the raise she wanted.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I saw it and liked it. You mean the one from a long time ago, right? Well, i learned that she lives in constant pain and i felt more empathy for her.

      • chismosa says:

        to quote you LL-
        word

      • Nancy says:

        LL,
        She has the same disease that I do. RSD.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          (((Nancy))) I had no idea.

          • Nancy says:

            She got really addicted to pain pills as well.
            It’s a bad disease.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              She was pretty open about it; her pain and her addiction and her struggle to manage the pain…I was fascinated by her honesty.

              • Nancy says:

                Giving someone narcotics for chronic pain should be criminal. It always ends in
                addiction.

            • TexasTart says:

              I didn’t know that. I will have to google and learn about RSD.

        • TexasTart says:

          What is RSD?!

          • Nancy says:

            Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome
            It’s a nerve diease that is one of the most painful out there.

            • TexasTart says:

              Very sorry to hear that, Nancy. 😦

            • chismosa says:

              Nancy so sorry to hear that. I hope Paula (and you, obviously) is doing well —
              Is it in a similar family of dystonia? My aunt has that and it’s just been horrible. No drug-related causes but it affects her muscles and nerves I think

              • Nancy says:

                chismosa,
                No it’s not the same thing. I feel for your aunt as I’m sure it’s a nightmare disease.
                Is she being treated? We so take our health for granted.

                • chismosa says:

                  She’s doing the best she can. Luckily she has her husband who is retired to help her but its been a sad, fast decline.
                  She gets whatever treatment she can- she’s in Tulsa

                  Thanks
                  I hope you feel well and stay healthy

    • TexasTart says:

      I thought the show was “gold” too….could have blinked and missed it though..”Hey Paula” was 7 episodes in 2007 on Bravo. She probably tried to buy it back and destroy recordings, ha ha, I don’t know but she did manage to.remove mention of it from her IMDB listing and her website too.

      • chismosa says:

        Whoa, just caught this TT– to get something off your imdb page is super tough that is so interesting she was able to do that

        Imdb is infamous for trying to put the truth out there.
        Score for Paula. Forever my girl

    Ice how is your son doing on his new job?

    • Nancy says:

      Powell,
      Tylenol is not an anti inflammatory so if you have any Advil/Motrin I would take that.
      Tylenol will help if you are in pain though.

      • Powell says:

        Yeah the ice & tylenol have helped w/the pain. I don’t have Advil or Motrin. It’s feeling better. Thks. 🙂

      • iceNfire says:

        Hi Powell – He checks in on me Every night thru FB message to make sure I’m still riding my bike. He is a mechanical engineer and says he is in corporate training with Intel – idk what that means but it sounds impressive 😛 ty for asking Powell, now go suck your thumb 😛

        • AZGirl says:

          mY HUSBAnd is an M.E.!!! Analytical with a heart of gold, that’s my hubby. Does that sound like your son? I’m gonna say yes, cause he checks on you every night. I love that!!! My daughter contacts me more now that she left the state of Texas, but neither of my kids really contact me much. Sometimes I’ll txt our son when he’s in TX…he will answer a day later. He thinks that’s ok. Daughter is more responsive. Now if my son is in NY he will reply within 6 hours usually. I think they could be a little more attentive toward their little old momma. But doesn’t every mother feel that way? Actually, my peers’ kids are constantly texting them (at least when I am with them). That’s when it hits me that my kids really don’t contact me much. (sigh) Lots to be thankful for, so I shouldn’t whine. ok, rewind. ….rrrrrrrrrrrr…..

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Lainey-I text my Dad all the time…he never responds…I don’t think he knows how to text!! When he comes over he asks me what I was texting him about. He has an iPhone but he really doesn’t know how to use it…it’s very amusing!!

    • chismosa says:

      hi Nancy,
      just to be caught up to speed- i think i should dvr nancygrace tonight— aren’t we like 99.9% positive it will be a Guilty verdict but what matters is really the punishment?
      I’m sorry, i need like a Jodi Arias Wiki page for all this—

      Because i thought the thinking was she was most likely not going to get the death penalty and just get life without parole?
      So…. my point is- this verdict is pretty much done, it’s the punishment that is the big deal? And when exactly is that going to be determined, like 6 months from now- or Juicy Joe Jersey style in like 2-3 years?

      • Nancy says:

        Technically she could get a not guilty but in reality she will be found guilty so this is really
        about her punishment. A mini trial will have to take place to determine either life or
        the death penalty. I doubt she will get death. Personally I would rather get death than
        be kept in a cage for the rest of my life. Watching Travis’s family is very difficult.

      • Orson says:

        There’s 2 ways these trials go in CA. Either way, first there’s the Guilt phase, to determine if a crime was committed and if the accused is guilty of committing said crime. That’s what’s going on now. If the defendant is found guilty, there’s an optional Sanity phase; to determine if the guilty party was sane or not at the time when the crime was committed. This is where you have dueling psychologists. And then last is the Penalty phase.

        Most jurisdictions require premeditation to get a 1st degree murder charge with death specification.

  39. chismosa says:

    Hope the link works, if not it’s on People’s home page. The actress playing Jodi Arias. I still say chipmunk Eva Longoria would have been a better pick because of the resemblance but i think she’s too ‘big’ for this.

      I really have to wonder, Why it’s sad? It was sad the first 120 times she did it. Now it’s just tiresome to even try to care about these people.

        MTH. I didn’t mean it’s sad for her. She’s had her chances. I meant it’s sad that she’s had so many opportunities given to her by lenient judges because of her celebrity. Like you said, if she wasn’t a celebrity, she would have been in jail a long time ago.

          BB, I understood you. I was just giving my own commentary on the subject of LL and her many (too many) chances to get right.

        She needs to get busted in Arizona or Texas instead of LA.

          But not in Austin!!! Austin Popo loves celebs, college football players, etc they don’t like politicians, however.

    Regarding the rental housing situation of Briana and Ryan. They might be on the waiting list for base housing at Camp Pendleton, the downside if/when they move to base housing is that their housing allowance gets cut. A housing allowance is something the spouse in the military gets to find and pay for living off base due to not enough houses being available on the base, its a pretty significant amount of money depending on rank and the number of dependants, but if you live on base in a house built on the military installation, for which you don’t need to pay rent to live in, you don’t get the cushy housing allowance.
