The Real Housewives of Orange County

By Stars99

Heather Tamra and Lydia at lunchFor some inexplicable reason, Heather and Tamra are meeting new girl, Lydia for lunch. The last time they saw each other was at Tamra’s batcrap crazy party.  After Heather and Tamra put in their order for a “grilled Lydia with a side of Alexis” – Heather launched in to a whole “I judge people on their own merit – I don’t lump them into a category with someone I’m not getting along with.”  Really? Wasn’t that you who sat there during the last 2 episodes while Heckle and Jeckle (Tamra and Gretchen) insisted that Lydia was guilty just by her association with Alexis? Granted, at one point you did say that she seemed nice – but really, you all pre-judged her solely on her friendship with Alexis.  Somehow, Heather sets the stage for Lydia to spill the beans that her mom goes to Heather’s husband, Terry, for her plastic surgery needs.  Lydia then starts talking about her mom – and that they will enjoy meeting her.  Lydia tells them that her mom will sprinkle them with fairy dust… because it’s sparkly and it makes everyone happy. Her mom had even suggested that Lydia take some fairy dust to Tamra’s party last week.  I’m not sure if mere fairy dust would have done the trick… but okay, housewife viewers, clap your hands if you believe!  Do you believe in fairies? … If you believe – clap your hands!  After seeing the looks on Tamra and Heather’s face, Lydia assured them her mother is a very centered woman, for sure.  Okay, I was going to try to ignore it – but again, what’s up with Lydia’s headband?  I wish these housewives would quit wearing headbands, already.  Lydia confides that she’s only known Alexis for 3 or 4 months – oh, I get it – this was all set-up by Bravo.  Then of course they talk about Alexis – and I thought that Lydia was awfully quick to throw Alexis under the bus – although, she didn’t say anything different than what she had already brought up to Alexis herself.  It just felt like it was just done in an “Oops… Alexis isn’t one of the cool girls and I want to be on the cool girl’s team” kinda way.  Lydia explains in her talking head that she’s not all that good of a friend with Alexis – and after all, she’s not in 3rd grade and they haven’t exchanged friendship bracelets.  Tamra tries to describe herself to Lydia – and the word she comes up with is “vocal.”  In her talking head, Lydia calls Tamra “straight crazy” and this is coming from a daughter of a mom who randomly sprinkles fairy dust on people.  They continue to talk about Alexis behind her back saying that they don’t like liars and that you don’t have to flaunt your wealth or how great you are.  Everybody has their baggage.  Heather says that they all say things they don’t mean and they need to own up to it.  Lydia just doesn’t understand why there’s so much hostility towards Alexis.  Tamra says she doesn’t hate her and that part of her feels sorry for her.  She compares Alexis to a puppy that needs to be helped but then turns around and craps all over your floor.  Tamra says, “I like you” to Lydia.  Lydia says, “I like you, too.”  Gag.

Alexis and JimAlexis and Jim are in their mammoth bathroom – seemingly getting ready for bed.  Alexis is taking off her makeup and Jim is doing some metrosexual primping stuff.  Alexis tells Jim that Vicki is having a date with Brooks later that week.  Jim seems confused – he thought they weren’t seeing each other anymore.  Alexis says they’re revisiting the whole dating thing.  Jim wonders why they broke up in the first place?  Alexis said she thought it was because they got so much flak from family and others and that they couldn’t figure stuff out.  There were too many voices in Vicki’s ear.  Jim doesn’t understand why Alexis went to Tamra’s party.  Jim asks Alexis if she knows the definition of insanity.  Alexis says, “Yes, continue to do the same thing over and over again with the same result”… then he corrects, “With a different result”… She thanks him for his correction. Umm, actually, Captain Pea Brain, isn’t the definition of insanity, “Doing the same thing over and over again EXPECTING different results?  Really, if you’re going to correct your wife on national television – you’d better get crap like that correct.  Just sayin’…Jim just doesn’t understand how Alexis can keep hanging around Tamra.  Alexis says, “Fool me once, shame on them in Costa Rica; Fool me twice shame on me.  Actually, I think they’re all fools, to be honest.  Alexis is concerned that she keeps “turning the other cheek” and she keeps getting crapped on.  Perhaps it’s because you’re turning the wrong cheek, honey.  Jim says that scripture does not tell you that you have to keep on forgiving and keep taking abuse.  Jim thinks Alexis should take the offensive and don’t take anyone’s crap anymore.  However, I’m sure he expects her to continue to take his crap, of course.

Vicki and Ryan are having serious issues putting a new baby seat into the back of Vicki’s car freshly washed car that already has a fingerprint on it.  Of course, it doesn’t help that they’re doing it at night, outside in the driveway.  They have a cool free standing light which I’m sure is part of Ryan’s surveillance equipment… lol..  Vicki asks Ryan if everything is okay between them.  They inevitably start talking about Brooks – and Ryan says that he is not someone he wants to have around.  Vicki tells him that he needs to support her decisions.  Ryan feels that he and Briana cannot support Vicki and Brooks.  He respects Vicki’s decisions on certain things but not on this.  Vicki says that it’s making her crazy that her kids don’t want to be around someone she’s dating.  Ryan said that if you want to date him, then we’re moving out.  Vicki asserts that she wants the choice to bring Brooks around.  It doesn’t sound like Ryan and Briana are budging.  Vicki say’s a work in progress… but she doesn’t know why it’s such a big deal since she’s not asking them to date Brooks.  Well, actually, you are – because you’re asking them to hang out with Brooks, have meals with him, etc.  You just want them to accept him.  As the conversation ends, and the garage door closes, Vicki asks Ryan, “We’re good, right?… Ryan, we’re good?” Ryan’s silence is deafening.

Fairy DustOkay, here comes Lydia along with her fairy dust mom “Judy” saying “Yippy Skippy” and “Yee Haw” as they walk up to the H. Lorenzo store in Laguna Beach.  Judy tells the proprietor, “Before we get started, I would like to fairy dust you… I really believe in fairy dust – it’s magical and fun!”  You can hear Lydia in the background saying, “So sorry she does this to everybody… you’re Peter Pan and she’s Tinker Bell). Judy retorts, “l am NOT Tinker Bell… I’m a Flower Fairy.”  Oh okay, thanks for that clarification.  She then takes a bottle and put some sparkly stuff in her hand and while sprinkling it on top of the lady’s head, she says, “Okay, a shimmer of hope… shine of belief… close your eyes!… and a touch of humor!” (as she gently tosses some towards her face.)… “Yay!”   Lydia says that calling her mom “eccentric” is putting it mildly – she is unpredictable and marches to the beat of her own drum.  Lydia asks her mom if she can watch the kids more often because she’s going to have to attend more meetings regarding the magazine. Of course mom would love to watch the kids!  Lydia explains that her mom was a hippie and has smoked pot her whole life which caused her to have a very interesting childhood. They start trying on clothes – and Judy tries to adjust the straps on a Lydia’s black dress to make it more exciting.  Lydia isn’t convinced it’s going to look right because she doesn’t have, “Newport boobs” (Referring to the ritzy city of Newport Beach).  Judy tells her she doesn’t need them – and that you’re beautiful just the way you are.  Lydia tells us that her grandfather is super into gold – and actually has gold injections because he thinks it cures arthritis.  She says that it must work because he doesn’t have arthritis anymore.  It may be because he can’t physically move anymore, since he has so much gold inside him at this point.  Lydia, knowing full well what her mother was going to say, bats her eyelashes and asks, “Should I get these 2 things or just the dress?” Oh, get it all cuz mom is buying!  Lydia confesses that when she was a teenager, she used to ask her mom to go shopping while she was stoned – because she knew her mom would buy her whatever she wanted. She justifies it by saying that it was her mom’s fault because after all she was stoned.   This shopping spree only cost $2,553… which is actually not so much since they both bought stuff – I mean, comparatively speaking.  When their purchases were going to be put in a bag, I actually thought Judy was going to have a conniption.  She didn’t want them to put the stuff in a bag because bags take away the trees which give us oxygen… also, Judy used to think she was a tree while she was growing up, dontcha know.  Judy compromised and agreed they could use just one bag.  As they walked out, Lydia told her mom she got a little weird, but that it’s okay because she loves her no matter what.  I’m telling you, RHOC might just be worth watching just to see this franchise’s new version of “Mama Elsa” (Obscure RHOM reference…). She is hy.ster.i.cal!

Gretchen greets Slade as he comes through the door with a, “Hi, Daddy.”  Now, she may have been talking on behalf of the dogs… but it just struck me as creepy – but then we ARE dealing with Slade. He sits on the couch next to her and she asks him how it’s going with the radio station?  He tells her the radio station has been very understanding about his situation with his son who just had major surgery in New York.  He just got back from New York after having been there for a week and a half – and his son is still in ICU.  Slade is flying back to New York at the end of the week.  He will be gone for 4 days and is just trying to figure out how to handle his current bicoastal situation.  Gretchen says that she understands that this is life and that this is what happens.  Slade knows that it’s not like they anticipated that his son was going to stay in New York.  He realizes there are things that they as a couple want to do – including discussing the potential of having kids.  Gretchen CriesGretchen, with tear-filled eyes, wonders how she can possibly talk to Slade about having kids at this point when he already has so many things in which he’s dealing. Gretchen doesn’t think it’s fair.  In her talking head, she said that she never saw a man break down the way Slade did in the hospital.  She held him like a baby as he cried and cried.  Really, Gretchen… did we need to know this?  I’m sure every man would love it to be broadcasted on national TV that he broke down like that… The fact that Slade actually cares about what happens to his son makes him look a little more palatable as a human being to me, that is until I remember how he was stiffing his ex for thousands of dollars while posing as Gretchen’s lil assistant all those months/years.  Gretchen is whining about how she feels selfish that she has these feelings because she doesn’t think she can to Slade about them.  Okay, Miss “I’m dating Slade only until someone better comes along” – which actually, should have been for all of what…. Like 5 seconds – but that’s a whole other Oprah…  Gretchen, you have been with Slade for how long… and how long has he wanted to marry you but you keep putting it off for various reasons?  But now, now that for the next few weeks/months he is going to be preoccupied with, oh, I dunno, a LIFE AND DEATH SITUATION CONCERNING HIS SON… perhaps you can consider working through your feelings in another way in the interim – why not talk about them with a friend?  How about seeing a counselor?  Slade acknowledges that life has dealt them a really crappy hand right now.  Slade is going to do everything he can to be there for his son – but that doesn’t mean it’s going to derail or stop his plans with Gretchen.  Gretchen wonders how she can sit here and try to get pregnant at this point of time.  Well, if you’re just sitting there trying to get pregnant, you’re doing something wrong. Just sayin’…  Gretchen thinks it should be a happy time – and Slade confirms that he can’t be happy about it today but that he doesn’t know what it’s going to be like in  4 months from now… Okay, now I understand how it has taken Gretchen a while to get to the point where she is ready to settle down and have kids… but it just seems that she’s acting like the moment she finally made this decision that she expected the planets to magically align and the angels to rejoice that she is ready to procreate with her Tubba Wubba boyfriend.  She may just need some fairy dust.

Heather and Tamra are walking down Pacific Coast Highway to Delano Lifestyle Activewear in Laguna Beach to buy some workout clothes.  Heather wonders if she wears a size 1 or a size 2?  The store owner smartly confirms that Heather for sure wears a size 1.  Heather says she might wear a size 2 on top – but not because of the size of her breasts.  Again we hear her say, “those children killed me.”  Perhaps this is one of her storylines this season.  Her kids ruined her boobies so therefore, she is justified in being a general crankpot?  Tamra suggests that she get a little implant but Heather thinks it is just too cliché – When you move down to Orange County – you get breast implants;  Marry a plastic surgeon – you get breast implants.  Tamra interjects, “You have 4 kids and your tits fell to the ground…” Heather was quick to say, “They’re NOT on the ground,” dagnabit.  Tamra thinks that, “If you want to be flat chested and have good restaurants – go back to New York.”  Huh?  Are you implying there aren’t any good restaurants or any flat chested women around here?  Lol… okay… Heather was about to try on some clothes when her manager just “happened” to call her to tell her about a guest starring role she just received for, “Hot in Cleveland!”  Heather is excited because it’s a straight offer – and she doesn’t even have to audition for it!  That’s the best kind of job offer, for sure! Tamra got chills for her.  I prefer to believe that her Grinch’s heart shrank another size and turned into ice since she doesn’t really love it when others do well.  Heather wants to continue to find opportunities to do what she wants to do while still maintaining her family life.  She says that Terry has always been incredibly supportive of her and her career ambitions.  Heather thinks that if she can secure an occasional guest starring role that it would be perfect for her current schedule.  She calls Terry on speakerphone, who is at the gym, just got off the treadmill to take the call, and is obviously out of breath.  Tamra, implying it was something else completely, says, “Is THAT why you’re out of breath?” Terry seems excited for Heather and tells her that it’s a great show, congratulations!  Terry teasingly tells her, “You know what this means, don’t you?  You and I get to run lines together!”  Heather assures him that she will never do that again.  They’ve been together for 16 years, and they’ve not run lines together for about the last 15 ½ years, “Because you know Terry is very funny… just ask him.”

Vicki Brooks and FurVicki arrives for her hot date with Brooks at 21 Oceanfront Restaurant in Newport Beach in a fur coat –  A fur freakin’ coat.  Let me just say this – No one, and I mean NO ONE needs a fur coat in Southern California unless perhaps you live in the mountains.  It’s just ridiculous… I mean embarrassingly ridiculous. While I’m an extremist in that I don’t even own a jacket or an actual raincoat – it’s just so crazy that anyone pretends they need a fur coat.  While I’m sure this is the one that Brooks gave her (am I remembering that right from a previous season?) it’s just crazy that she feels the need to wear it for the whole 10 feet she has to walk from the valet stand to the front door of the restaurant.  She greets Brooks and he gives her a very platonic kiss on her cheek.  Vicki and BrooksShe tells Brooks she got all dressed up because they’re on a “date night.” Brooks was too busy snidely criticizing her for being late by saying, “You finally made it, didn’t you?” to bother to compliment her on how she looks.  They agree they have a lot to talk about – Brooks tells her to take a deep breath.  They’re asked if they want something to drink – and Brooks, without even checking with Vicki, orders a drink for both of them.  I dunno, I guess I think that unless the guy is ordering a drink he knows that I would want – why can’t I order my own dang drink?  But perhaps that’s just my own pet peeve… Vicki explains in her talking head that they love each other but aren’t currently dating that they’re taking a break.  Vicki is confused about things.  For the small talk portion of our program, Vicki asks Brooks how he has been since they haven’t seen each other in forever.  Are we supposed to believe that you never talk to him, too?  Since we already know that you hide in the bathroom like a teenager with your phone so you can talk to him in private.  Okay, I’ll play along with this lil game…

Brooks starts to talk about how he’s been busy… and Vicki interrupted the flow with, “What are we doing?”  Brooks snorts annoyingly, “Well, we’re having dinner tonight.”  Vicki tells us that she’s still in love with Brooks and that he’s still in love with her, too.  Vicki tells us that she has an emotional and a spiritual connection with this man and sometimes you just can’t explain it.  She wants Brooks back in her life. Vicki tells him, “I don’t know who we are anymore… I don’t know what we’re doing…. Are you dating other people?”  Brooks says, “Well, when you say you’re single…” She insistently asks again, “Are you dating other people? Answer the question, ‘yes’ or ‘no’ – You don’t even answer, you skirt around the question…”  Brooks stammers, “I’m not, I’m not skirting around the question…”  Vicki says again, “Are you dating other people?”  Brooks says, “I’ve seen other people, I have.” Vicki quickly responds with, “Well, I haven’t, so I’m going to start seeing other people then if that’s what we’re doing.” Brooks says, “Well, you’re single” Vicki interrupts with, “Who are you seeing?  This is stupid Brooks, you don’t need to tell me that.  Are you really dating other people?”  Brooks says, “Not now…”… Vicki wants to know when it was that he was seeing other people.  Brooks obviously doesn’t want to answer as he rubs the lipstick off his collar.  He tells Vicki, “You moved your daughter in and it changed our dynamic – and you didn’t consult me about how it was going to impact our relationship.”  Vicki doggedly asks yet again, “Are you dating someone right now?”  Brooks says that at the end of the day he wants to be with someone who can be with him on all fronts.  Vicki tells him that she’s not going to kick her daughter out – and that decision comes with a cost.  Brooks tells her that anyone who moves into his house lives by his rules.  That’s easy to say if you don’t actually own a house, no?  He tells Vicki that he’s not here to win Brianna over – that he sees his job as treating Vicki in such a way that she’s never been treated before… I’m guessing he meant in a good way?  Vicki tells him that she feels like she’s being pulled in two different directions.  She tells Brooks that she’s in love with him but that she also loves her daughter.  Brooks asks Vicki what her daughter did as an adult… Vicki responds with, “She got married and followed her dreams.”  Brooks wonders why Briana can’t allow Vicki to do the same thing?  Brooks says that he would demand it. That explains his sterling relationships with all his kids, no?  Vicki starts crying but says she feels she’s stupid for crying…

Pumpkin PatchDuring the one minute fake-out between commercials, we see Heather taking her kids to a pumpkin patch!  It’s absolutely adorable!  Heather tells us that raising 4 kids is hard work (truer words have never been spoken).  She says that going to a pumpkin patch is like moving an army.  We hear choruses of, “Mom, help me…”… “Mom, look at me!”… “Mommy, mommy, mommy…”  Heather mutters that Terry has no idea how hard it is to take 4 kids out along with their 18 nannies.

Lydia and her mom walk up to the restaurant, “It’s all about the Cake”… and are wondering about whether they should sit inside or outside.  Judy chooses inside… but Lydia tells her that she’s sure she meant outside, cuz after all that’s where all the Bravo cameras are already set-up.  For some reason, Lydia is not supposed to put her purse on the ground.  I wish I noticed what kind it was… but it looked expensive.  Of course, Judy orders sparkly water.  They are celebrating the fact that Judy has not smoked pot for the last 3 months.  Lydia tells her that before she stopped smoking pot that she was flighty and “lived in the land of the bunnies.”  Lydia said she didn’t feel comfortable having her babysit the kids while she was smoking pot.  Her mom confirmed that she would never do that… but I’m guessing’ that Lydia has a whole lifetime of memories that prove something different.  But in true celebratory style, hippie mom says, “Yay, me!”  Lydia tells us that sometimes she wanted a normal mom.  She asks her mom if she misses getting stoned?  Her mom honestly says that it’s much more fun to be part of the land of bunnies.  Lydia says, “But you’re altered” and she tries to equate it being drunk all the time.  Her mom doesn’t agree and she says that it hasn’t been easy.  She made a commitment to herself to stay sober for Lydia and her kids so they can have a normal “nana.”  Lydia unabashedly tells her that she’s not normal – and that’s a compliment.  Her mom thinks she’s actually more normal when she’s loaded… lol… yeah right.  Lydia is proud of her.  Her mom tells her that she doesn’t think Lydia is judgmental ALL of the time… Ha!

Tamra and EddieMeanwhile, back at new local office in OC for Tamra’s and Vicki’s business venture called, “Wines by Wives” – while standing in the parking lot, their other partner asks Tamra if she got a call from Vicki?  It’s moving day and Vicki didn’t show up to help.  Tamra tells everyone that she gets the corner office since Vicki isn’t here to help move.    It doesn’t surprise Tamra that Vicki isn’t there.  They have huge individual pictures of each of them to hang on the wall.  Wow.  Eddie remarks that it looks like Vicki is wearing snakeskin patterned blouse in the picture and that it somehow seems very appropriate.  Tamra says that Vicki has clearly checked out. Their other partner keeps calling Vicki “partner” which pushes all of Tamra’s buttons.  Tamra reminds the guy that she warned him that Vicki was hard to work with when they first started this partnership.

OMG… Heather and Terry brought 3 of their kids to “Zov’s” – I have HUGE mentascental attachments to this place! I’ll provide a note below…lol… Evidently, after the pumpkin patch excursion, they dropped off the baby and picked up Terry to go out to dinner.  Terry is tired and tells one of his children that some of us had to work today – and that others got to play with pumpkins all day.  Yeah, this is going to end well, I can tell right now… lol… The kids get out their homework and they are encouraged to help each other with it so the adults can talk. Well, fist they’ll hafta find an adult… no, I joke, I joke! Heather can’t believe that the next few weeks of her schedule are going to be so insanely busy… She has all of her charity stuff… the kids… the role in, “Hot in Cleveland”, and, and, and… Max, their oldest daughter is having issues with her math homework.  Heather starts to help her with it, but Terry tells her to “Channel your inner daddy” which means that she should try to channel his math skills.  Heather takes offense to this and says, “Apparently I don’t have a math mind.”  Rut roh… Terry asks Heather what time will she have to show up to the set in the morning?  Heather says that she doesn’t know yet – but that she’s going to need Terry’s help with taking the kids to school.  Terry thinks it’s a good idea that when he’s in charge that they all can just stay up all night and eat whatever they want.  Heather sarcastically tells him that she doesn’t know how he’s going to be able to get them up and to school if he does that.  Terry turns to their daughter and says, “Hey Max, do you want to stay up really late while Mommy’s at work?”  Heather gives him the evil look of death and tells Terry he’s not being funny and that he’s being rude.  Heather gets angry and Terry doesn’t understand why she’s so angry at such a little joke… He insists he was kidding… Heather tries to explain that to include Max in the joke wasn’t funny…  Terry turns to Max and asks if she thought it was funny?  Heather says, “Oh great, continue to do it… I’m done discussing the entire thing now… Thank you.. Appreciate that… Thanks for ruining what was a nice moment in my life by making those jokes.”  In her talking head, “There’s only one answer, ‘Whatever you need, honey’ – but I’m not getting that, I’m getting jokes… and that makes me so infuriated.”  Terry insists that whatever it is, it will be fine, right?”  Heather checks out of the conversation and responds monosyllabically, “Yep.”  She looks over at Max who is quietly doing her homework while ignoring her husband who is still engaged in the conversation.  All the kids are just trying to stay out of the line of fire.  “It will be fine… seriously.”  Heather says, “Okay, good.”… And silence fills the land… Then Terry tells Heather to lighten up, Buttercup!  (Well, I added the “Buttercup’… but it was implied)… Holy Crap on a Cracker – cuz yes, that’s what everyone wants to hear when they’re cranky, “to lighten-up.”  The kids quickly duck under the table so they’re safe from imminent bombing. Terry wants to start the entire conversation over… Heather tells him, “Yes, apologize to me – then we can start over.”  Terry saying he’s really, really sorry But Heather is not having any of it.  Heather IncredulousTerry keeps emphatically saying, “I am really sorry!” He even uses big hand gestures.  Terry is sorry – it’s just that he’s been operating all day… Heather then says, “Well I know what you do is SO much more important than what I do all day taking care of 4 children… and I was up all night with the kids last night.”  Terry then mistakenly says, “This is not a competition, because if it was, then….” And although he doesn’t actually finish the thought, the implication is clear when he laughs as if the comparison was just completely ludicrous. Heather has had enough… she’s done… she’s checking her email… Her Royal Heathership is not amused.  Terry doesn’t understand why she’s mad cuz he said “Sorry.”  I mean it’s not like he ordered onion rings or anything, right? Terry pleadingly wants to know, “What more can I do?  Can we not start over, seriously?  Can we not really start over, honey?  Please?” And then, as if a lightning bolt of truth came hurdling down from the heavens, one of their kids honestly asks, “Mama, did your mom and dad have a lot of fights?”  Heather curtly says, “No.” And somewhere in Neverland a fairy fell abruptly to the ground.

Note:  Zov’s Restaurant is near and dear to my heart. A month after Mr. Stars99 had moved here from the East Coast, he was at his family reunion in Michigan and called from there to ask me if I had ever heard of “Tustin, CA.”  Ummm… yeah… I lived there for 6 years and graduated from Tustin High, Go Tillers!  He told me he was watching an episode on the Food Network with one of his relatives that showcased the “Top Desserts in the United States” and the #1 dessert according to that show was a tart from Zov’s in Tustin, CA.  I had never actually been there since it had been a while since I lived in Tustin – so when he returned we made it a priority to go check it out.  Oholynightthestarsarebrightlyshining – they’re good!  Zovs - TartsWhen we got married a couple years later at the Hotel Laguna, instead of a wedding cake we opted to serve various tarts from Zov’s restaurant.  I’ll try to find the picture of the varieties of tarts from our wedding – which is only a very small sampling, I assure you.  But I got a kick out of that part of this otherwise very tame episode. I do believe Heather and Terry wouldn’t have been so danged cranky if they had eaten one of their tarts, dagnabit!   Starts to inexplicably sing, “It’s a small world after all.”

Newlyweds: The First Year, Episode 1 by BB

BB Note:  I DVR’d this not knowing if I’d like it or not because I’m skeptical of Bravo’s programming of late.  I enjoyed watching the first episode.  If there is enough interest from others who want to discuss the show, I’ll continue recapping it. If not, I’ll just keep enjoying it on my own.  😀

This is a “docu-drama” about four newly-married couples.  50% of marriages end in divorce.  Will they all still be together at the end of one year?

Tarz and TinaTina and Tarz live in Columbia, SC.  Tina is an Indian Pop Star.  Tarz’s real name is Dave.  He’s just started his own tech company.  They’ve been together for four years and spend a lot of time apart because of Tina’s career.  Tarz pursued Tina.  She wants to have a baby immediately; Tarz is not so sure.

Two days before the wedding, Tarz and Tina are in bed and he asks her if she woke up with a full face of makeup on.  Tina doesn’t want Tarz to see her without makeup until after the wedding.  Tina lists all of Tarz’s good qualities, then she wants to talk babies.

Tina and her father are talking about how hard this wedding is for him since her mom died three years ago to the day of the wedding.  Her dad and Tarz do not really see eye to eye.  Tina’s dad doesn’t think it’s normal for Tarz to not have a steady career and to always be looking at the laptop.  Tarz has a new media technology company and Tina has trouble explaining to her dad what he does.  She and her dad do not agree about what constitutes a marriage and Tina doesn’t think it’s just a cultural thing.

A day before the wedding, Tarz’s laid back family shows up.  Tarz is looking for a box and he can’t find it.  He won’t tell Tina what’s in the box and she asks him if it’s her ring.  When he doesn’t answer, Tina goes into an emotional tailspin.  If he doesn’t find it, she’s going to kill everybody.  Tarz thinks she’s overreacting.

It’s wedding day for Tina and Tarz.  Tarz finds the ring in his car.  He’s apprehensive because it’s marriage and it’s forever.  Tina is also having mixed emotions and misses her mom.  Everyone is dressed in their Indian garb the groom’s wedding procession makes its way down the street to the bride’s house.  It looks like fun.  All the neighbors come out and start dancing to the drumbeats.  Tina starts crying because she misses her mom and she doesn’t think she can get through the ceremony.  Tarz starts crying when he sees Tina being escorted down the aisle by her dad.

Tina hopes her marriage is as good as the one her parents had.  Her dad would leave work early just to spend time with her mom.  Tarz, on the other hand, doesn’t want the kind of marriage Tina’s parents had where they spent all their time together.  He’s going to love Tina in his own way and on his own terms.  Uh Oh.

Between the wedding and reception, Tina tells Tarz she wants to start baby-making and he tells her “not tonight.”  Uh Oh. At Tina’s and Tarz’s reception, he tries to impress her with his dance moves in a skit.  She yawns dramatically as part of the skit.  He realizes that he broke her phone and she has a shit fit and tells him she hates him in front of everyone.  He’s flabbergasted.  Uh Oh.

John and KathrynKathryn lives in New York City. She worked in tv production and is used to the fast paced city life.  She’s ready to settle down with John.  He already has a home on Long Island, so that’s where they will be living.  They got engaged after six months of dating.  John is only willing to give up half of his walk-in closet to Kathryn.  Their friends and family are worried they haven’t known each other long enough to be getting married.

In Oyster Bay at John’s house, he’s going over a list for vacation.  He has a list for everything!  It drives Kathryn crazy.  She doesn’t need lists.  She later goes for manis and pedis with the girls, including her new sister-in-law, Ellen, who is very close to her brother John.  While they are having drinks and getting their manis, Ellen tells Kathryn she thought John would never get married.  Ellen said she wasn’t going to say anything, but she has to.  Kathryn had made up a photo album and there was not one picture of Ellen in the book and she’s not happy about it.  She was the only sibling of John’s not in the book.  Kathryn assures her it was just an oversight and tells Ellen she wants to be friends with her.  Looks like there is going to be a little conflict between Kathryn and Ellen, who seems a little jealous of Kathryn marrying her brother. Uh Oh.

Kathryn is going to her final fitting and her wedding dress is bling.  Her sister Kally goes with her and they discuss her past heartbreaks.  Kathryn’s only worry is that she might lose herself by changing her whole life for John.

It’s Kathryn and John’s wedding day.  They’ve both written each other a letter to read before they go to the church.  Kathryn cries her eyes out while she’s reading John’s letter.  John wants to read Kathryn’s letter twice and gets teary-eyed too.  They both don’t seem to have any doubts about taking their vows – until Kathryn starts thinking about the “what ifs.”  Kathryn’s running late and getting really stressed out.  She finally arrives and after she apologizes to the Greek priest, they are married.  They can’t seem to stop talking during the ceremony.

Before the reception, John takes a private moment to tell Kathryn he loves her before they go in.  Kathryn is sad to let go of her maiden name, but she’s not going to hyphenate them because their last names are very similar-sounding.  John realizes Kathryn is giving up her name and moving in with him and he’s not giving up anything.   Kathryn hopes she can give him the traditional life he wants without losing herself. Uh Oh.

Jeff and BlairJeff and Blair live in LA.  Jeff works for Homeland Security doing background investigations and never thought he would be getting married.  They met in 2010.  When they first met, Jeff lied about his age.  He said he was 34 when he was really 44.  He’s 16 years older than Blair.  Blair is the more outgoing of the duo.  Blair comes from money and is a little spoiled and immature.  Watching them interact you can definitely see the age difference in this dynamic.  Jeff wants to talk about money; Blair doesn’t.  Jeff wants Blair to contribute more to the finances, like the mortgage.  Blair points out his name isn’t on the mortgage.

Blair is a Hollywood Showbiz reporter for the number one morning show in Australia.  He used to be in a pop band called B3 that was very popular in Europe and Asia.  Jeff’s parents do not approve of his marrying Blair.  Blair’s mom is supportive.  Jeff didn’t come out to his parents until he was 35 and they rejected him.  Blair has always had his family’s support of his sexuality.  They will be sending Jeff’s family a wedding invitation even though Jeff knows they probably won’t attend, they will make their point of view known.

Jeff and Blair are getting ready to go to City Hall to get their partnership license.  Jeff seems more nervous than Blair.  Blair feels like he won the Oscar.  They have decided to hyphenate their last names to be Peterson-Late.  They sign the paperwork and talk about how business-like it is even though it’s telling everyone they are in now a committed relationship.  Blair has no intention of getting a divorce like the rest of his family has.  They throw a party together as a newly domesticated couple.  Blair’s brother from Texas comes to the party to show his support.  Blair loves to dance and is a trained dancer.  Jeff, not so much.  He has four left feet.  Jeff has never had the unconditional love and acceptance he gets from Blair.  Blair feels it’s his duty to make up for Jeff’s childhood even though he knows he can’t completely mend his heart.

Kim and AlaskaAlaska and Kim live in New York City.  A year before they get married, Alaska surprises Kim with an engagement ring at a surprise birthday party she threw for him. They had been dating for six years.  They consider themselves a power couple.  Alaska manages talent for Warner Brother Records and his work is based in LA.  Kim is a wardrobe stylist for the likes of Usher and Drake.  They model themselves after Will Smith and Jada Pinkett and the Obamas.  They are Christians and follow the tenant that the man is the head of the household.  Kim loves alpha males but thinks Alaska may be a little too alpha.  Uh Oh.

Kim meets with her sister and friends to discuss the wedding.  She wanted them to all lose weight before the wedding.  She’s not asking them to be a zero, but she doesn’t want a long line of chubby bridesmaids.  Her sister tells her the e-mail she got telling her to lose weight for the wedding was ridiculous.  Since they haven’t lost the weight like she wanted, Kim is going back to her original plan of having a groomsmen wedding.  She wants her wedding to have a certain aesthetic and she’s not budging from it.  Hopefully, those who love the couple will be there during the wedding and after.

Alaska talks with his friends about the honeymoon.  He’s thinking Mexico and they tell him that’s so “Spring Break.”  He doesn’t know when they’ll have time for it because they are both so busy.  They discuss computer passwords and transparency in relationships.

Alaska is a farter and he’s not ashamed of it.  This becomes obvious while he and Kim are getting massages.  He apologizes to the ladies because once it comes out it takes over the room.  Kim has been praying about it.

Kim and Alaska’s wedding is very uptown.  You can tell they’ve put a lot of thought into every detail.  Kim’s vows include the words submission. She trusts she can still be her own person.   Alaska, on the other hand, thinks she’s giving him all the power and it makes him want to do right by her.  Uh Oh!

It will be interesting to see how these couples will handle the various issues they are bringing into these marriages.

    Good morning!! Lots of great stuff to read!! Overcast here in central Texas, have a great day everyone. I’m sort of waiting to press “post comment” – – -hoping that I won’t be first. hahaha!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      What ‘r you afraid of, Lainey? What ‘r you afraid of???

      Grey here too, and drizzly. Good day to stay indoors.

  2. Powell says:

    God momorning everyone. I had a losey start. My power outage last night knocked out my phone and internet access which I didn’t find out until this AM. I was suppose to work at home. Couldn’t get connected & our tech support never called me back so I went into the office. Got in the office & was able to sign it to our system so my phone outage is what caused me not to access work which is strange because I don’t connect at home. Oh well.

    I hope you all have a great day.

  3. AZGirl says:

    Bringing this over from yesterday’s blog.

    Good morning everyone! Hopefully today we get a verdict in the JA trial. I missed OC again yesterday. It is aired so early here. I did see one part of Monday night. Vicki and her mink jacket. Really who wears fur anymore? It is so gross. The thought of wearing an animal pelt at dinner just really turned by stomach. Then of course there is Brooks which did not help the nausea. I wished I had seen Heather’s melt down. Reading about it yesterday was hilarious.

    • T-Rex says:

      Regarding the JA trial, you think that little cold-blooded, murdering, lying, pathological psycho, Narcissist(ALLEGEDLY), is peeved that this wonderful story of Hope coming out of Cleveland knocked her skanky ass off all the front pages of every news outlet in the country.

  4. Good Morning! It is good to be back! My internet/cable company had an outage for 6 HOURS yesterday and I was lost, I tell you, lost!! LOL! It is amazing how we depend on these devices…and a little scary. I DID get housework done tho, so it wasn’t all bad. I feel your pain Powell…reading about your outage too. Hope it gets back up and running soon!

    I just wanted to jump in and say hey….going up to read the jam packed blog while I have my coffee and muffin. Thanks NMD and everyone for another marvelous day on the blog! You guys are truly the best!

    I will be back after I read. 🙂

    “Wednesday Humor Blog” is up at my place. Enjoy!

    Good late Morning!!!! Star’s love your take on OC! BB your recaps make Newlyweds sound more interesting then what I watched.

    We are already a few episodes in OC. What is the topic Tamra’s only story line Alexis!!!! For someone who hates her she loves to non stop talk about her. Frankly if this is what the remainder of the season will be like I won’t be watching. We get it Tamra and her upthebutt goons (see Heather, Gretchen and now Lydia) hate/despise Alexis and it’s getting old fast. Now onto Lydia’s pot smoking, acid eating, fairy dusting mother. —>need I say more! That explains Lydia’s behavior as well as her appearance her mother smoked pot/dropped acid during the pregnancy. As for Gretchen I fast forwarded her and don’t care to listen to whatever she has to say the remainder of the season. Though my heart goes out to Slade I can’t imagine what he was(is) going through with Grayer. That is just too sad any ideas how he is doing today?

    Vicki needs to be with Vicki and only Vicki. Brooksey could care less about her and she needs to stop finding emotionally vacant men. I hope she takes a long break from dating and really think about what she wants. Hopefully she won’t fall into the same trap. About the wine I’m not sure if I heard the day/time of the move. But wasn’t it when Vicki would be at work? Was that really wise of Tamra to schedule a move during that time? What a moron! But it gave her exactly what she wanted to complain about her dear old friend Vicki! Tsk tsk tsk creating drama just to be relevant on OC is pretty sad.

    • Hiya LuLu. Hope you are feeling good today!

      So agree about Vicki. She just needs to take some time for herself and find out who she is without a man in her life. She needs to learn to validate herself for herself…not through a man’s eyes. And NOT through Brooks’ eyes…his are creepy!

      • Lulu says:

        For the most part ok on and off contractions but other than that fine. Thank you!

        I’ve never hated Vicki I always like the fact that she stood on her own feet. She made something of herself and employes 20-30 people? The other ladies can’t say that much. It’s sad that she falls into that cliche of successful women with a path of bad relationships. I hope she finds someone that will make her happy.

        • Oh my gosh…contractions?! When is your due date again…I recall it is like..soon! So much good energy and good luck being sent your way. Hugs doll!

          Re: Vicki…I admire her for all her accomplishment in business. That is well done…but I feel like she focused so much on that she forget that she had to grow as a person too. I also hope she finds herself FIRST…then someone great for her.

        • Catseye says:

          Contractions!?! How exciting!!

          • Lulu says:

            Nope not exciting because it’s irregular not enough to give into labor but stronger than Braxton-hicks 😦 I’m due the 25th but at my past OB appt showing activity so it could be sooner.

    • Shiny says:

      Loved when Brooksie claimed he wasn’t seeing anyone now….you can bet he meant not while he was sitting down with Vicki at dinner…..of course he’s been sleeping with anyone he could while Vicki was limited to phone calls with him …Mr Sleezy can’t do without women fawning over his fake chivalry schtick even if the only women who fall for it aren’t exactly rocket scientists.

      • T-Rex says:

        He is EXACTLY the kind of creepy, conartist, lethario guy that “preys” on women like IckyVicky, the needy, man-dependant woman with low self esteem and a lot of disposable cash. She needs to be ALONE for two minutes to figure out what she really wants.

    • Stars99 says:

      Hope you had a mahvelous day, Lulu

  6. realhousewifeva says:

    Thanks for blogging the Newlyweds show, BB! I really enjoyed it and I like the way you recapped it for each couple! I don`t have a good feeling about Tina and Tarz, he seemed so uninterested to me.

    Actually, I don`t have a great feeling about most of the couples! I remember the first year of marriage and how hard it was for me (lots of adjustment!) so I can`t wait to watch these couples.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I enjoyed the newlywed show too. And I agree with you about ALL the couples. There were multiple uh-oh moments for me. None of them seemed to have a good idea of what marriage would be. I suspect, if their marriages start to break down, this will be much less fun to watch. So possibly another show that starts with potential and then spirals downward.

      • BB says:

        Thanks! I’m glad there are others watching so we can “discuss amongst ourselves.” Lol. I remember my first year of marriage. I was only 18 and sooooo immature. Stupid little spats over nothing. But we made it – 40 years this July.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I liked this show-but I wanted to jump into the TV and tell the couples that they are fighting over things that won’t matter in a year…but of course we all learn that as time goes by. A few of the couples were on The Today last week-they were all so happy that they did the show.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          40! Wow! Congrats on the long hard work!

          I have never married, so I find it eternally fascinating how people meet, decide to marry, and manage to stay together. The whole shebang has eluded me!

        • realhousewifeva says:

          That`s awesome BB! I got married a month before my 20th bday and we will be celebrating 13 years next month 🙂

        • Stars99 says:

          Whoa.. 40 years! That’s so, so great! Congrats!

        • Lisa Renee says:

          NanaBB Wow! 40 years & you are both still standing. I enjoyed this show so I was nicely surprised when I saw your blog. Your recap was spot on. FWIW after 5 years of dating our first year of marriage was tough also. I remember vividly when our 1st anniversary came up & was asked what we were going to do I replied WTF is there to celebrate, I am not even speaking to you. We just celebrated our 11 anniversary this past saturday. After 16 years together I wouldn’t change a thing. Lisa

    • T-Rex says:

      Yeppers RVA, our first year was our WORST year, and we had lived together two years before getting married. We aren’t near what BB and MrBB are celebrating, but thankful we made it 21 1/2 years so far. Being on a Reality TV show would have made our life WAY worse I would imagine. YIKES Glad we stuck it out though, I think some folks give in too easily to divorce, marriage is HARD work in the beginning, for us now, it’s like smooth sailing(knock on wood), we are best friends and spend pretty much all of our time outside work together because we WANT to. Of course having no children makes it different than a lot of other folks relationships too. My parents and grandparents both had solid marriages, so I think that helps a lot too, have some really good role models who also were able to provide us with great advice throughout the years.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I totally agree lots of people seem to throw in the towel too soon. My husband and I had lots of ups and downs in the first 5 years, and now it`s like we both know we can never imagine NOT having eachother in our lives. He`s stuck with me, whether he likes it or not, I wouldn`t know what to do without him!

        • T-Rex says:

          We tell everyone we are still together because who else would put up with either of us, HA! I agree that those first 10 years for us were up and down, but after the first 3 years the UPS were outwaying the DOWNS, and I remembered that scene in the movie Parenthood when they show Steve Martin on the Roller Coaster as his grandmother was explaining that the ride was worth it. That’s why I dislike that Bethenny is divorcing Jason, they should have stuck it out longer in my opinion.

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

    Great blog!! Love Probst shedding a tear…well I love him doing just about anything!!
    Starzy-you keep me laughing every week with you OC snarkaliciousness!!
    I find it hysterical that Tamra is trying to call Vicky out on not working hard for her dumb wine thing-we all know lots of things about Vicky-the only respectable trait she has is her work “ethnic”. No HW works harder than Vicky-Ramona is a very close second. Tamra thinks that sitting around and hot gluing gems on a cheap looking wine glass makes her a business woman-meanwhile Maggie can bang out 10 of those glasses in an hour. I have her working on one now with STARZY bedazzled on it!! Come on Tamra-call Vicky out on being a hypocrit or phony-but not on this dumb made up crap!!!
    Heather is getting more annoying each week-does she seriously think we believe she does it all? Really? 4 kids at the pumpkin patch and she acts like she saved the world-her kids are not all toddlers-she needs to stop complaining b/c it’s not like she went home after and did laundry and scrubbed the floors-if that were the case then maybe I would have a little sympathy!!!
    I really dislike Gretchen-she is dumb and immature and proves that every week
    Lydia’s mother made me wish I were a pot head-she was so happy and dippy!!!!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Heather looked to me like she was on her phone at the pumpkin patch. The voiceover was her saying how hard this was, and what we were seeing was her not paying any attention at all to the kids.

      • Catseye says:

        She also had her nanny there to watch her kids, so she could yak on the phone. What an idiot.

    • T-Rex says:

      I think that whole WhineyWhine seen with TrailerTrashTrampySue was a complete Bravo set-up. Really, could IckyVicky give a crap on what office she would have, she will probably never set foot in it anyway as she has a successful, fully thriving business of her own, something TrailerTrashTrampySue will NEVER have. I have a lot of issues with Icky-Vicky but her WORK ethic ain’t one of them. I think she has finally delegated a bit more to have more free time with Brianna and the baby, but she is still probably in touch non-stop with the office. Who cares about bedazzling a wine class, I am sure in IckyVicky’s mind there is “staff” for that. Oh and uhm for someone with a newly opened business TrailerTrashTrampySue doesn’t seem to be spending a whole lot of time there, for being the 51% owner. Sheesh. I remember when these boutique gyms were starting up way back in the late 80’s my father’s friend opened one and he was there ALL of the time, like 80 hours a week, managing the business, working with the clients, working on selling product and services, etc. especially in the beginning so that he could stay in business. He owned the gym for like 10 years before those bigger gyms moved in the area and he couldn’t compete with their prices, those big gyms can offer just as much with less money. In addition, as a gym owner why would you be buying workout clothing RETAIL?!?!? You wouldn’t as you would be able to purchase items WHOLESALE, uhm more dumb Bravo editing probably since TrailerTrashTrampySue doesn’t have a real story line and GayEddie is treating her like she has cooties.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I belong to Planet Fitness-10 bucks a month and I can quit whenever I want-its opened 24/7 and it’s clean as a whistle. If Tamras gym is successful I will be shocked-SHOCKED!! She strikes me as lazy so I don’t see her being there all the time and I’m sure she has a few “fans” who signed up just to catch a glimps of her trashy self.

        • T-Rex says:

          Yep, and if you talk with the managers, they are there like 50 hours a week! I would bet TrailerTrashTrampySue puts in about 2 hours a day, and those are probably the two hours she is working out herself, she could probably give two Sh*ts about her clients.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            2 shits is too many-she doesn’t give any shits about anything but herself!!

        • chismosa says:

          Jill Planet Fitness is catching on around me a lot too! I know so many who sing their praises

      • jules says:

        “TrailerTrashTrampySue”……makes me giggle! Thanks T-Rex

    • Stars99 says:

      lol… the REAL Jill… Yeah… it’s weird how these shows go… sometimes I like one of them, sometimes I like another… but mostly I just don’t like any of them… cuz in the interest of creating drama they all end up looking silly…

    • Catseye says:

      I read elsewhere, so I don’t know if this is really true, but did those gaudy, rhinestone encrusted wine glasses have “JESUS JUGS” on them? I know Tamra was trying to sell some crap like that a while back, so I just wonder if she brought some along, to toast with Gretchen and Heather, each time thing made a dig at Alexis. If it IS true, I think that those 3 nasty women are more vile and immature than any teenage bully could ever conceive of being.

  8. cocfarm says:

    jEFF n DUCK DYN people. The cast is on the view today. Barbara waltersjust made a duck call. FYI

  9. Ok…enjoyed the read! And here we go….

    Lisette – loved the Brookebot” name. That is my impression too! Thanks for the update.

    BB – I watched the first half of this show but got tired and went to bed. It did not peak my interest so much, but it just might be because I am Bravo’d out and suspect of any of their programming. I might try again next week…but loved reading your recap. It made it more interesting!

    And Stars99, Starsy-Poo, Mouse – I literally had to take notes reading your recap so I could remember all the quips I wanted to comment on. You are a genius and your comedic timing is perfection! Such a great read!

    “Capt. Pea Brain” was my fav this week! I visualized a old worn out super hero with a frayed green cape and a giant pea on his chest! Oh…and he has goggles!! For when he flies into the soup, ya know! 😛

    Lydia’s mom…ok, you just made me want to watch the show…and buy fairy dust. I wonder if I can throw it on my blog readers? Would they mind? Hmmmm. Me thinks Lydia’s mom has some other kind of “dust” too. 😉

    Gretchen’s face…what the eff happened to it? That pic, Yikes!

    Vicki’s fur coat….yeah….never ever a reason to wear one in So. Cal! Brooks….Yuk…nuff said.

    Terry & Heather fight…ok, so I did not watch this BUT…I will say that my older sister was married to a guy who handled everything with a joke all the time…and it does get old. You could never have a serious or even “regular” conversation with him. He used to change their answering machine (Long ago!) message every couple of weeks and do it in a different language. We never knew if we had the right number! It was hard to deal with “jokey pokey” all the time, so maybe that is Heather’s issue? Still don’t care for either one of them though!

    OK….my withdrawals from not being able to comment yesterday are fulfilled! 😆

    Have a great Wednesday everyone! Smile just for yourself today!! 😀

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Barney – I will now forever picture “Captain Pea Brain” with goggles…lolol… Yeah, Lydia’s mom looks like she’s going to be hysterical – and really, will probably not even be close to getting into fights or anything… I honestly think she will just throw enough glitter in everyone’s face that it will blind them just to shut them up from harshing her mellow… lolol

  10. 2Stupid says:

    This has nothing to do with blogs today, but I have to get this off my chest. I used to LOVE Bethenny. Now, she is starting to make me sick. She did this interview today stating she should have listened to her gut and not married Jason. She doesn’t regret it because of Bryn but blah blah blah. She doesn’t know if she will be able to trust again, etc. This may all be true, but have some respect for your daughter’s father and don’t put it out their for public fodder. Bryn loves her dad and loves her grandparents. This woman has no respect for anything. If you made a mistake, you may have to pay for it. We have all made mistakes that we paid dearly. Treat it as a learning lesson. Thing is, I don’t believe it was Jason completely. I think the only person she puts above herself is Bryn and I am sure that has been a very difficult transition. I had to have this rant, because it really bothers me how she is letting this play out. She hired Katie Holmes atty, but didn’t take any cues from how that was handled. Katie never spoke ill of Tom Cruise and hasn’t spoke of it publicly at all. That is how people with class handle things Bethenny!

    • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

      I agree. I was a fan of Bethenny but not so much anymore. She needs to avoid all media and work on herself privately. Its a shame, I had such high hopes and really enjoyed the beginnings of BEA.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I`m sick of her too…. She should have listened to her guy and not married Jason, but she doesn`t regret it because of Bryn? Um, newsflash Bethenny, you got pregnant before you got married so you didnt have to get married in order to have Bryn, anyway. You got married because you were a famewhore who wanted her own TV show and a storyline. IMO

      • realhousewifeva says:

        gut*

      • Cartwheels says:

        She already got the show before she got pregnant or married, the show was offered to her as a single girl and the name was going to be “The skinny and the city” and that was in announced in July 2009, before anybody even knew that she was dating Jason seriously.

        http://famespy.wordpress.com/2009/07/28/%e2%80%9creal-housewives-if-nyc%e2%80%9d-bethenny-frankel%e2%80%99s-could-be-sued-over-new-show/

          I actually knew that, lol, but I still think Bethenny is a big ol` famewhore and she spent her 3 seasons on NY with this whole `can I have it all` storyline, and once Jason came along I believe that she thought she hit the jackpot to make her spinoff more fun and exciting. I dont think Bethenny can love anyone enough to be a married women, she just loved the idea of `having it all`: Great career, husband, child…etc. She also seems to love to play the `pity me` role…so once she got bored with the `having it all` part of her journey, now she gets to play the `woe is me, pity me` portion.

          • Kansas Girl says:

            Well, that’s the one thing she didn’t have yet — pity. Bingo! So now what’s missing? There are enough roles for a lifetime, but will Bravo and her fans go the whole ride?

        • chismosa says:

          Then where were her brains allowing herself to get pregnant (at that age you KNOW how to get yourself pregnant and when to be careful)- so she strategically gets pregnant, fine?
          Where are her brains telling her she should marry for the 2nd time because marriage works so good for her and she grew up around such solid great marriages? She did not have to marry him and i watched the show 20x over and have them on dvd and don’t see Jason twisting her arm. Even if so, she did not have to give in, because when do we see B give in to people? She lives life on her own terms, always did, always has- as she was ‘raised by wolves’ or ‘raised alone’ basically. So really, Jason got her into this?

          This tough a$$ woman was swayed by Jason— yeah ok. Definitely! What a powerful guy that Jason was/is.
          epic fail.

      • Lulu says:

        Well put realhousewifeva!

    • Cartwheels says:

      But she is not lying though, she told Jason several times during the first season of her show and even during the thrid season of RHNY that she didn’t want to get married, she asked Jason to wait until after she gave birth to Bryn so they could plan the wedding, but Jason persisted on doing it before Bryn was born.
      I am positive that if they would had lived together for another six months they would had relaized how different they were and probably would had never gotten married.
      There was even a whole episode during BGM about the doubts of Bethenny and how she was only at 88% sure.
      My practical side thinks that if they wouldn’t had gotten married, the cutsody process would had been much easier. There would be no assets to divide, no prenup or modificationto discuss, no posession of the apartment to fuss over, I truly believe that their split would had been much more amicable had they not been married.
      The unrealistic idea of a knight is shining armor that Bethennyhad in her head is now colliding with reality and with the fact that while they were married Jason look at her money sideways and pretended to be above all that petty stuff, he is really fighting hard ball to get as much as he can, which would not had been an issue at all had they not been married. JMO

      • BB says:

        Nobody twisted her arm to marry Jason. Bethenny doesn’t strike me as the type to do something she doesn’t want to do if she really doesn’t want to do it. Now that its over though, I agree with the others that she should follow the example of Katie Holmes – take the classy route and zip it.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          But how could she be the victim if she shuts up? She has to cry and whine and go on and on about how hurt she is. How many times have we seen that part of Bethenny. *teeny tiny violins are playing* I`m so over her.

          • chismosa says:

            Yup, exactly… she is doing this to start to move the ‘fanbase’ over so they can handle what her new persona will be on the show in a few months.
            It’s a total 180 person from last year. No longer married, happy, wife. NOPE. It’s all strategic and i feel it’s a fail but who knows.

        • Cartwheels says:

          I know that, maybe I misred but I interpreted it is as if Bethenny is just saying now that she didn’t want to get married because she is getting divorce, she has said that all along, even in the times when they were happy.
          Kathy had a lot to talk about and remember that Kathy also had a prenup and she didn’t fight Tom for anything related with money, she walked away basically empty handed and the only thing she got was child support because she is the custodial parent.

          Whether we like to admit it or not, divorces are mesy and divorces were there is so much financial items is even messier and can be long, complicated and painful.

          • chismosa says:

            If you’re referring to Katie Holmes, this is- to me– a completely different situation because she was contracted to be his wife for 5 years. Contract was up. Scientology/ gay rumors. Case closed. She is the daughter of a lawyer too.
            B just happened to choose a good lawyer but is clearly not handling it as gracefully as Katie. But then again, Katie sold her soul for 1 billion years to Scientology back in the day and probably has some non-disclosures to keep to for Tom.
            Tom Cruise is a whole OTHER stratosphere.
            I wish there was some other celeb marriage (from that lawyer) we can compare because in my eyes, TC is like something else and not really human. That marriage was not what i would call a ‘marriage’.

    • Lulu says:

      Oh don’t get me started! 🙂 Agree with everything you wrote.

      • BB says:

        Me too.

      • 2Stupid says:

        My problem is that I think this is all for damage control for her upcoming show. I would respect her more if she would just not publically comment. He’s not. Trust me he would get plenty of interviews if that is the route he wanted to go.

        • Cartwheels says:

          He is commenting, just not directly.
          Jason’s team is behind IMO every single article from Radar Online that slams Bethenny and has been doing it for months on end.
          Bethenny doesn’t need to send a message with “inside sources”, she comes out and gives the statements herself.
          He absolutely should give interviews if they were not on his way of portraying the perfect guy with absolutely no other interest than her daughter. I would love for Jason to be interviewed, I would choose Cuomo to interview him and ask him so many questions that nobody dares to even ask:
          1. Is it true that you are a real state mogul or real state agent?
          2. Can you give us the name of at least two properties that you have sold/buy
          3 Is it true that you refused to sign the prenup and did it only 5 days before the wedding because Bethenny told you that without prenup there was no wedding?
          4. Is it true that you asked Bethenny for a modification of theprenup?
          5. How much does this modification gives you in terms of money?
          6. What do you make of this allegations that you negotiated the sale of SGC with Beam and that is why you should be entitled to a lot of compensation?
          7.If it is true that you negotiated that deal, why there is no record of your name in any of the board meetings between the SGC representatives, David Kanbar’s representatives and Beam’s representatives?
          8. How much of your own money did you put for the 2.5 down payment of the apartment?
          9. If you get the apartment in the divorce, how would you be able to afford the mortgage payments?
          10. Jason, are you aware that NY is not a state that has a default split custody arraigment and one of the parents has to be name the primary custodial parent?
          11. Why do you make of the gossip rags insisting that Bethenny wants sole custody when she has requested primary custody just like you?
          12. If Bethenny gets primary custody how much would you have to pay in child support a month?
          13. If you get primary custody how much would Bethenny have to pay you in child support a month?

          See what I am saying, most of these questions would be completely irrelevant if they were not married and just living together, there would only be the issues of custody and child support, the rest would be irrelevant.

          Let me finally just point out to the fact that it is Jason who has contracted and paid a financial auditor to trace every single penny of money from Bethenny, can you imagine if she didn’t have a prenup? Jason would be taking her to the cleaners fair and square.

          • Lulu says:

            Cartwheel what’s the point Bethenny spent her last season bashing Jason. In fact as a general rule of thumb when a woman and man divorce. There tends to be a bias towards the man especially if there is a child involved. What could he possibly say without turning this into a circus? That is what Bethenny is waiting for him to make the slightest comment and her to turn it around and play the “woe is me and me is woe card.” I think Jason will get sole custody of Bryn based on the amount of time he spends with her. As a part of Bethenny’s career she travels a lot. Jason, Dawa and Gina have spent more time with Bryn their her own mother. Her show proves that as well. I just think it’s sad that Bryn is caught in the crossfire. Hopefully she is too young to really understand what is happening.

            • Cartwheels says:

              Bethenny has not bashed Jason the whole season, she pointed at the fact that heis not perfect and nobody is perfect. It was not what Bethenny said about Jason but his demeanor and his attitude changed and there was nothing bethenny could do to make his resentment go away, he constantly badger Bethenny and if it wasn’t for the fact that Bethenny build up him so high to make him perfect to begin with then she probably should had dump him earlier.
              Jason should have cut the umbilical cord 30 years ago and he also should have worked on his self esteem and the fact he hid his feelings of resentment towards Bethenny’s sucess for so long, then refuse to acknowledge them and then when finally admitted them, refused to do any kind of counseling because he sooth himself with the idea that Bethenny’s broken childhood meant that she was not normal and that he was normal and in no need of any fixing.

              I am not puting this on only Jason’s shoulders, I think they are both responsible of not recognizing soon enough that they were ill fitted and probably should have never gotten married.

              If they were not married a lot of the contecious points of their divorce would npot exist and I think that this is what Bethenny was trying to point out instead of saying that she wishes she would had never married him.

          • majnon says:

            I have always liked Bethenny and none of that has changed for me.

                • djprincessc says:

                  Hahahahahah. I’m sorry Chismosa, I love super successful women. Like my faves are Ramona, Betthaney, Teresa and Nene. Teresa I loved from the moment she was on the show but it’s because she has 4 daughters and Nene bc she’s super funny. I love bitchy too but not evil and manipulative which is why I don’t like Tamara or Jaq and Melissa.

                  I hope you don’t break up with me learning of this and we can work out our issues!! LOL!! 🙂

                  • Cartwheels says:

                    LOL, me too.
                    I never liked or dislike Bethenny on RHNY, it is when she made a fortune out of it that I started paying attention to her and when I learned that she was savvy enough to had come to the show with a plan in mind and make it work for her for the long term, I totally digged that.
                    I never liked Teresa but to my amazement she proved me wrong, she strapped her boots and went to work to save her family from the financial ruin, so for that I respect her.
                    Anybody who can use their short time on TV to their advantage knowing that is only temporary, I do like.

                  • chismosa says:

                    That’s funny DJ I just go for a “feel” I have for someone. I admire some that are successful business-wise (Ramona) but others are more just pure personality (Nene). To me, Teresa was not a businesswoman, she was a housewife. Later fell into stuff–
                    Nene also fell into stuff but I loved Nene from the get

            • pat says:

              I feel the same. I have great admiration for Bethenny. I had a gut reaction to Jason from his first moments on the show. He is full of himself and he has a serious mean streak. Sad that bethenny didn’t listen to her gut and not marry him so quickly.

          • chismosa says:

            I’ve read many articles in magazines and online that site “sources” that are against Jason. Hence, B has some people doing her work for her and she is not as “direct” to her fans as she wants them to think.
            She does go out with public statements (like this latest fail), but IMO that is in ADDITION to “sourced” things I’ve read.
            I wouldn’t put it past someone on her PR team planting the things against Bethenny herself to make B seemed *unfairly* attacked as well

            Very smart PR

      Here, here 2Stupid. Truer words have never been spoken

    • chismosa says:

      2 Stupid, i’m with you— and you are not STUPID. HA HA
      She is going about this sooooo the wrong way. Does she not read comments she is getting on blogs and magazines’ sites?
      I feel like her PR team is like, Bethenny, you have to start to talk about this because we are airing the promos for your show, we are shooting soon in some weeks and you’ll have to be able to take on this new role of the tough, divorced(ing) woman. Total switcheroo from last year’s talk show host.

      I feel like many said below that there is no WAY miss haughty tough as $hit Bethenny would have married Jason if she felt it was wrong. For her to say all this now is terrible, a bad pr move, more likely trying to get ‘fans’ ready for her show (they are airing promos already), and it doesn’t help AT ALL the one person she is supposed to value above herself, Bryn.

      So i’m with you. Checked out!

      • Lulu says:

        Exactly Chismosa! The only way B would be “offended” by the comments. Is if there was a camera directed at her and she could do her “Woe is me and me is woe act.” Realty she’s laughing all the way to the bank.

  12. Cartwheels says:

    I watched last night the Amanda Knox interview and I am still upset about that joke of interviewer that was there, mr. Cuomo I think? I mean some of his questions where so off that I was expecting Amanda to just walk off stage at any moment. What is wrong with CNN and why couldn’t they have chosen someone better?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I have it on DVR-I saw someone talking about it last night (chimosa I think) and she said kind of the same thing about the questions

      • Cartwheels says:

        He was basolutely out of line, he was not an interviewers, he was acting like a prosecutor and he nailed her time and time again. He was not very proffesional.

    • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

      Maybe because he is related to the NY Governor? I think all the so called journalists need to hurry back to school and actually learn something this time.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I didn’t realize they were related , I understand that as a young reporter he is trying to make a name for himself but Amanda was in obvious distress and he kept asking her questions that were ridiculous. I am glad to see that the CNN boards are pulling him apart.

        • 2Stupid says:

          I agree. I thought he was way inappropriate. I think he was trying to show it wasn’t a “softball interview” but if he wanted to cross examine he is in the wrong profession.

        • chismosa says:

          i didn’t know CC was a young reporter- i thought he has been a seasoned one, he’s been on air for years i thought?
          I think he’s gorgeous and i love him and his wife. Usually i like him. I don’t feel particularly sorry or much empathy for Knox so i don’t know.
          Love her eyebrows though. She looks 35 poor thing, though.

    • Lulu says:

      What’s wrong with CNN is that it’s CNN!! Just as bad as MSNBC where responsible journalism just doesn’t exist. They were looking for dirt and when they didn’t get it they kept on pushing. I followed Miss Knox’s case and I don’t think she did it and hopefully she won’t go back to Italy.

      • BB says:

        It would be interesting to know how many so-called journalists of today actually majored in journalism in school. If it’s the majority of them, then perhaps the curriculum needs a good overhaul because they ain’t cuttin’ it! I’m guessing most of them made it because of who they are and who they know and not based on their knowledge or experience.

    • kit9 says:

      I commented on this last night. My jaw was on the floor with how staggeringly unprofessional Chris Cuomo was during the interview. He asked her 4 effing times if she was a sexual deviant. He used juvenile expressions during the interview, seemed to be barking at her at times and generally came off as a complete douche. I couldn’t believe this interview was on a legit news channel.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Kit, ITA! I couldn’t figure out why he was so aggresive, he interuppted her & challenged her on the most stupid things. I’m thinking Cuomo felt he had to up the ante since he interviwed her second. Lisa

There is a difference between being a thorough interviewer and what he did, some of his questions were so ridiculous, I felt like he was mad at her and she stumbled when she spoke to him , can you imagine an interrogation of 18 hours non stop in a language that is not yours?

He said if he had known that, he would be facing triple life right now. Also when he said to give the reward money to the girls. Bro, bro, bro…love it!

        You’re absolutely right, Shiny… and I kept thinking that Judy is gonna hafta stay away from Briana’s baby… cuz he already has enough glitter issues with Vicki… lol

    • Stars99 says:

      I’m not sure if Judy is still stoned, but I hear she’s making a potato chip run… lol

  18. OMG….watching the Duck Dynasty guys try to get through their interview on The View with Elizabeth and Barbara. The DD guys are sooo great! Love ’em. But The View gals….remind me why I never watch the show anymore. I just tuned in for the DD guys. E. needs to go and…while Barbara has blazed so many amazing trails…she needs to retire!

    I want my friend to give me this Cadillac lol. And yes that’s me. Wishful thinking about the car. 😃

    @venicianstarz: Wish my friend would give me this car & I wish I could fit into this dress w/out my rear looking so big. 😃 http://t.co/0J3fcuZfIe

    • BB says:

      You’re very pretty, Stella!

      • stellastars21 says:

        Thank you BB. I’ve never thought I was pretty lol. That car is super awesome though. It was in a magazine and he enters it into car shows.

    • melthehound says:

      Wow 🙂

      • stellastars21 says:

        That car is awesome. He said once I could drive it if I was a good driver but I couldn’t handle the risk of hitting something. Or the money for the repair lol.

        • melthehound says:

          The car isn’t what I was wow’ing about Stellastars… Though it is nice too…

          • stellastars21 says:

            Oh lol. Thank you. Meanwhile I really have a craving for cake. Totally off topic but I can’t stop thinking about cake. 🙂

    • Orson says:

      Can’t go wrong with a car with big fins. And as for you, Stella, how’re *you* doin? 😉

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Stop lying that’s a picture of ME!!!!!! (I WISH)

      • stellastars21 says:

        You’re funny. I really don’t get it. I never see myself as attractive. I’m not fishing for compliments either. As a kid I was always teased about my looks and I had acne and even though that’s not an issue anymore I have the scars and always wanted those skin peel thingys. I guess the teasing stayed with me. I dunno. But maybe everyone’s kind words today will help me get over it. lol But honestly I still don’t see it. Hahahaha

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Stella-you are a knockout!!!! Go on Girl!!!!!

      • stellastars21 says:

        Thank you. I love that dress. Though if you could see me now you’d see me in my plaid shirt and jeans and not think knockout. Lol. It’s the dress I guess. 🙂

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Yowza! (YOU, not the car!)

    • chismosa says:

      Stella, you’re gorgeous. And i find everyone usually very unattractive. lol.
      Good luck with the car!

  20. ladebra says:

    I think Teresa is on Wendy this morning.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Yah she was, I missed the clip but I saw her makeup artist posted some pics on Instagram

    • plainviewsue says:

      Watched. Man, was WW kissing Teresa’s ass. The same woman that WW declared should quit the show, said she was Team Melissa, on & on.

      Today she said Teresa was her favorite NJ housewife. I loved Tre’s reaction. She looked at her and said I am????? Loved that!! WW said she loves her, but she has to be real in her comments about the show, whatever the hell that means. WW said that she loves the kind of mother she is, that Tre always puts her girls first.

      What a hypocrite. My guess is that the last time she slammed Teresa she got a lot of nasty feedback.

      Between Wendy not remembering Melissa’s name when Andy was on her show & saying that Teresa is her favorite HW, Melissa must be comatose!!!!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Somebody bring her some smelling salts

        • chismosa says:

          Lainey, i’ve already resigned myself to the fact that we’re not seeing the ‘real’ Teresa anymore. She is a well-oiled controlled PR machine trudging away, supporting her family and attracting **fans** blech/vomit. She resigned herself to stay with that grotesque person, has hellraisers growing up, has to support them all, and court her ‘public’. The ulcers in her stomach i can’t IMAGINE.

          I don’t see her as Teresa –as i’ve known her— since 2 seasons ago. It all changed. Clothes, manner of handling kids and hubbie in front of cameras, Apprentice, everything. It’s gone.
          So i’m just– over it– it’s not her. It’s a wax model with an installed dictionary and phonetically-spelled out words. ha ha!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Yeah, she’s crazy like a fox, isn’t she? Sometimes they push her buttons and the real girl comes out. I prefer her over the others on that show…but I was disgusted by her ignorance and her orgy-like conspicuous consumption in season 1. But then I was also one of the few people who felt bad for Danielle and thought Caroline was an overbearing bossy biotch. Ugh. I shudder. This might be my last season with NJ. We’ll see.

            • chismosa says:

              I’m with you on Danielle and I was onto the Don since S1
              I was kind of hoping Danielle WAS coming back this season. Lol

      • chismosa says:

        not sure if you’ll see this but Wendy, as i am a loyal viewer to the core— always states she reserves the right to change her opinion on many things- so she may have just changed her opinion. (and found Tre the least bad of the bunch, lol)

        #2- she forgets names of Brad Pitt and Angelina and Shakira and HUGE A+++++ list stars so i don’t think she’d remember any C/D-level housewives that well either. I’ve seen her, many times do that.

        love my Wendy, despite this. I have to correct her on something about Godparents she said yesterday, when i see her friday. I hope she doesn’t mind me telling her something like that. We’ll see 🙂

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I’m so excited that you get to see her on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!! so cool!!! Have fun!

          • chismosa says:

            Thanks Lainey, I’m hoping to rope in some friends but its a drive from where I am and also there may be rain …..I think I’ll still go

            Will keep you posted! Lol

  21. realhousewifeva says:

    VERDICT IS IN!!! Will be read at 4:30 ET

    • cocfarm says:

      Good.

      • Nancy says:

        cocfarm,
        How was your dinner with JS last night? lol I know I shouldn’t have. Never again so
        I hope you had fun!

        • cocfarm says:

          It/he was marvelous nancy, but don’t want to stoke the fires of jealousy! 😝

          Actually had dinner out at a fab new restaurant w my own version of JS, my husband and a few friends. Earlier I went to a huge greenhouse to buy plants w friends and my dopey whiter than white self BURNED through the greenhouse glass. By the time I hit the bed last night I felt like I was putting out enough heat to fry an egg! Gggrrrrrr.

    • Nancy says:

      It better be GUILTY in the first degree and I hope she gets LIFE!

      • Stars99 says:

        She is seriously a danger to society.

      • kit9 says:

        Think she’ll get life, hope hope she gets the DP.

        • Nancy says:

          Personally I think Life without parol would be worse.

          • kit9 says:

            I don’t. With life, she’ll have a social life, probably a companion, she’ll be able to draw, give interviews(probably)write which the narcissist famewhore in her will relish, get her word out, write, etc. I always think of that one case of the serial murderer who was literally living out a sex filled, drug filled party behind bars. He was convicted of killing several women-nurses in the 60’s and 25 years later was having a grand old time in prison. I want her in solitaire, with nothing but a cockroach to keep her company.

            • Nancy says:

              I saw that too and it made me sick. You have a good point. For her, life might
              be a cake walk. I don’t believe in the DP though.

            • Lisa Renee says:

              Kit, dam I didn’t think of that. Solitary confinement, that is even better, Lisa

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Nancy, I agree that LWOP would be worse for her than the DP. No mirrors, no interviews, no nothing for the rest of her life. A picture of Travis on the ceiling of the cell would be a nice touch. Has nothing to do with my position on DP, I still go back & forth with it. Lisa

            • Nancy says:

              Scott Peterson has a picture of Laci in his cell. Speechless.
              BTW I loved your blog on Empress’s. You are very talented.

              • Lisa Renee says:

                Awwww Nancy, that is a huge compliment coming from you, thank you. I am glad you enjoyed it, Empress & MTH make great cheerleaders. Talented? I was just hoping for coherent. I didn’t know SP had picture of Laci, yuck. I took solace he has to look at the water where he dumped them the rest of his life regardless of how that comes about. I want Travis’ on the ceiling to haunt her. Lisa

    • Stars99 says:

      I’m really nervous… at least it’s not a hung jury… = )

      • Nancy says:

        It brings me back to the OJ verdict. I will NEVER forget how I felt that day.
        Please never again.

        • T-Rex says:

          For me it was the sickening verdict from the Casey Anthony debaucle, even the judge says he was baffled by the verdict.

          • Nancy says:

            I agree. Her life is probably a living hell if that helps and OJ is in prison now so I guess
            there was some form of justice for their family’s.

        • Stars99 says:

          OMG… Nancy, I will never forget that, either…..

          • Nancy says:

            I was working the night shift at a rehab centre with two african americans and they
            both thought he didn’t kill them. I thought I was in the twilight zone.

        • cocfarm says:

          I remember exactly where I was that day. I was in a law school doing some work and was in a meeting. I remember the law students cheering.

      • kit9 says:

        I’m nervous, too. Feel sick. As infuriated as I’ll be if she doesn’t get M1 and gets something like M2 with a sentence of 10+ years approx…I’m a complete stranger, never knew him…so I literally cannot imagine what it would be like for the family. I honestly don’t know how they’ve contained themselves thus far, even. That one day in court, when the had the family sitting DIRECTLY behind the lying murdering POS who slaughtered their brother…how did the restrain themselves from reaching down and grabbing her by the hair? The hell they’ve been through….I pray they get justice.

    • So hard to wait for the reading of the verdict.

  22. shamrockblonde says:

    hello my loves!!!! finally got a minute to duck in and hug all of you really hard – we had a great time, and I will tell you all about it later, but for now – thanks so much for the blogs- they were too funny!!! and so on point! – and Jeff!!!!!!! WOW!!!! sosososo happy that tne newlyweds lost – what an absolutel tool that guy was!!!! – I’m sorry your girls didn’t take it, but at least the asshat couple did not win!!!! – I have a week’s worth of reading to do – so far only did this one so will work backward –
    I finally have someone I can watch on the OC – Mama Judy!!! *sprinkles fairy dust on entire board*

    VERDICT HAS BEEN REACHED IN THE JODI TRIAL – hopefully she gets the max –

    did anyone hear about the Casey Anthony judge? he came out and said that he was shocked at the verdict as there was more than enough evidence to convict!!! –

    *hugs entire board really hard*

    • princesspindy says:

      Then why didn’t he over ride the verdict, can’t judges do that??? They can on TV, lol!

      • Orson says:

        I recall a one panel cartoon where a judge tells the defendant “While the jury has failed to find you “Guilty”, it’d be in poor taste for you to go around saying “I’m innocent.”

    • melthehound says:

      It’s all good SRB.. Like many others, I’m more happy for who did not win. Mona and Beth would have been preferable to me but Bates and Anthony can get some new teeth now 😀

  23. Lisa Renee says:

    Good day to all, Stars loved the OC blog. You are so dam funny with a side of sick & twisted, I think you know I am a fan 🙂 I am most intrigued about the free standing light you mentioned, I missed it but I watch with half an eye on the TV. I can’t wait for my next Frontgate catalogue, they all get their outdoor furniture from them, so do I. Thanks to you & the the others who chimed in about not needing a fur in CA ever, that confused me. Loved Lydia’s mother, much much more please. Loved how Lydia copped to taking her mom shopping while stoned to make out like a bandit. I’m on my last nerve with OC but I will come back for more fairy dust. I can’t believe Slade said “they” were dealt a bad hand. Um no, your son was dealt a bad hand.
    I said I wasn’t going to panic about a verdict until today was over. Got back from running errands, ugh people everywhere & saw a verdict was reached. I have the sickest feeling in my stomach. My thoughts are with Travis’ family. I hope they get what they want. Lisa

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      4:30 can’t come soon enough…his family must be feeling every emotion known to man.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Jill, I have taken my seat made a cup of coffee & haven’t taken my eye off the clock. So glad CNN is going to cover it, NG is torture. She dampened the missing womens homecoming for me. That is a talent and not in a good way. Crazy news day. Let’s she if she snaps out of her fog when the verdict is read. Lisa

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I hope they have a camera trained on her stupid face-she needs a smack like nobody’s business!!! I’m sticking with NG for the verdict-her craziness can’t be missed!!

          • kit9 says:

            I can take, even like her at times, but not for this. As it is, I have a choice of CNN and the super annoying Ashley Banfield(the way she speaks drives me nuts!) or Nancy.

            • Lisa Renee says:

              Kit, I like AshleyB from when she was InSession because she always asked to have the law explained, but her voice is a tad annoying.

            • Powell says:

              That’s were she is CNN? When In Session changed 3 or 4 yrs ago she was doing special reporting for GMA. I didn’t know where she was.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Granted, watching her become unglued after CA walked was good TV.

        • kit9 says:

          I know. They should have left the anchor duties to Vinnie. NG is just too much to take.

  24. Donna says:

    I like Lydia’s mom! I bet she could stop the shrew triplets in their tracks with a look, or fairy dust.

    I have always dislike Jason from the get go with his patronizing attitude, I’m better than you because my family is better than yours. No two families are alike.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I’m with you Donna…I liked Lydia’s mom and I dislike Jason!!!

    The the legendary Jeanne Cooper, Mrs. Chancellor on The Young & the Restless, passed away today. RIP Duchess!!

  26. Kat From Ohio says:

    awwww shit the verdict is coming in 7 minutes. maybe i’ll open up a beer and watch??

    i graduated college btw so i’m looking forward to getting to chat with you all more

  27. Nancy says:

    In Arizona 2nd dregree murder would get 10-20 years. Not enought IMHO.

  28. AZGirl says:

    Fasten your seat belts!!!!

  29. Nancy says:

    I bet Jodi is fixing her makeup!

  30. BB says:

    Are Nancy Grace and Dr. Drew really discussing Anne Boelyn? Did I hear correctly?

  31. Nancy says:

    Jodi isn’t feeling very well. Are you kidding me?

  32. Nancy says:

    I feel sorry for her family.

  33. Kat From Ohio says:

    guilty in first degree

  34. ladebra says:

    Omg. There you go

  35. cocfarm says:

    Guilty!

    Woo to the Hoo!

    I LOVE you Arizona! I fu*king love you!!!!!

  39. AZGirl says:

    The crowd is going crazy cheering outside the courtroom.

  40. AZGirl says:

    Travis’ family are just breaking down. They are so exhausted.

    • kit9 says:

      Seeing that smiles on his sisters faces is just fantastic. Finally, in some way, some relief for them.

  41. Nancy says:

    This is still a sad day. No winners.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      It is a sad day-maybe no one wins but someone is a loser and her name is Jodi Arias.

      • Nancy says:

        She’s still a daughter and a grand daughter though. Those are the people I feel sorry
        for not Jodi.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I don’t think of her in terms of being that human Nancy-what she did to Travis was the act of a monster-I can’t think of her as anything else

        • LaineyLainey says:

          It’s horrible for the families on both sides, I’m sure. Unimaginable.

    • Beckygrey says:

      I am with you also Nancy. I have not watched not one moment of this trial. To see people cheer and go on happy in a verdict, that doesn’t bring anyone back and is a reminder that a life was taken and another was lost, was unsettling.
      For 25 years I work in the justice system and it was exhausting, taxing on the soul and the wonderful moments were the ones when people respected “society rules” and/or gave more to society than they took!

  42. Realhousewifeva says:

    Thank god the jurors got it right, I honestly believe jurors should never be sequestered. Let them know and hear all

  43. designernailsdiana says:

    AMEN Murder 1

  44. Lisa Renee says:

    So strange to have a jury come back with what we all wanted. Good job AZ. The smile on the sister’s face…..long overdue.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      How about Jodi eyeballing the jury…too late-they made up their minds!!!

      • Lisa Renee says:

        I caught that, too little too late

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I’m waiting for kit9 to comment on that-Jodi made it a point to stare them down and I hope the all held their head high and stared right back! She couldn’t win them over and she will never forgive them for not being in love with her!!

          • Lisa Renee says:

            I’m gonna go out on a limb….maybe the mitigation expert told her to look at them staright on after the verdict. Still trying to humanize her. IDK just a guess

          • kit9 says:

            Honestly, I didn’t see it! I glanced at the screen after the verdict was read but was too busy screaming. I’m going to have to see it on playback! Will definitely watch for it.

          • melthehound says:

            What the phuck was staring them down supposed to accomplish? Make them askeered of the verdict they came back with?

            • Lisa Renee says:

              IDK Jeff, I think it is all strategy. Still trying to manipulate them into seeing her as a victim to elicit sympathy to save her life. I guess she missed the part they did not believe a syllable she spoke.

  45. princesspindy says:

    Good, the Prosecution WON!!!!!! They WON the case!!! How great is it that they WON!!!!!

    • kit9 says:

      You know what’s crazy is that I still haven’t seen footage of Juan’s reaction to the verdict. The camera was in a tight shot of Jodi as the verdict was read and I’ve yet to see a single frame of the prosecution as or after it was read. I’m dying to see Juan’s face…he worked so hard and mostly alone, apparently, on this case.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Kit, I am busting to see video of his reaction & the detective’s. If I had to guess, he had on his poker face. It was reported he smiled at Natasha a producer frm HLN on his way out. I do not expect to hear a peep from him until after sentencing.

        • kit9 says:

          I did see a full wide shot of the entire group of family and friends of Travis as it was read, which was fantastic to see. There was Sky Hughes, Deanna, his siblings and their partners. To see their relief and happiness at that very moment the verdict was read was wonderful. His two sisters, especially. To see them smile after seeing them in agony for so long….so moving. But, still, no shot of Juan and Flores. I even went looking for photos but found nothing. I’ll keep checking.

      • chismosa says:

        he had so many naysayers i am very happy for Juan!
        Vale Juan! felicitaciones! Poor guy practically killed himself over this i’m sure.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Today is definitely a good day for our legal system and boy did we need one. Long overdue.

  46. AZGirl says:

    I kind of wish the reporters would leave the family alone. Let them get to their cars and go home.

    • Nancy says:

      Ditto. Leave them all alone.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Agreed. Now they have to gear up to listen to her atty’s try & make the jury feel sorry for her to spare her life. Doesn’t look good, premeditated & felony murder verdict.

  47. AZGirl says:

    The local “expert commentator” Marc Victor Criminal Defense says that Jodi does not qualify for the death penalty under AZ law. WHAT???

    • Nancy says:

      He needs a tox screen done.

    • Powell says:

      He mustave had a 3 Martini lunch.

    • kit9 says:

      From what I understand there are usually one of two factors that have to be met….more than one murder committed during the crime or severe cruelty. And, Jodi doubled down on the latter. Man, I’m exhausted.

      • AZGirl says:

        That is exactly right. Mark Victor was back on at 5 and explained that the jury was given instructions regarding “severe cruelty” and that is what they have to decide tomorrow. If it is unanimous then Jodi qualifies for death row.

  48. Nancy says:

    I wonder if Jodi has any friends? Who is going to got to bat for her? It’s not looking good.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Good question. I am waiting for Beth or Jean to surface to see what happens if the jury doesn’t find the aggravators have been met.

      • Nancy says:

        Jodi didn’t even look at her family after the verdict was read.
        Something is very wrong in that family.

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Very very wrong. If they do go onto mitigation her mother & father are going to be raked over the coals and lord only knows what JA is going to accuse them of. I always believed that is why she never looked at her family. It has to have more teeth than a wack from a wooden spoon.

          • Nancy says:

            I wonder if they tried to get some help for her as they had to have known something
            wasn’t right a long time ago.

            • Lisa Renee says:

              I know she left home for good at 17 under not so great circumstances. She went to live with her BF. I can’t recall if it was just an out of control teenager trying to be reeled in by her family or if they were insisting she get help. Both parents admitted to the detective there was something wrong with her for a long time. The mom could not wrap her brain around how the murderer acted so “normal” after she killed Travis.

            • BB says:

              Can sociopaths be helped?

              • Nancy says:

                If diagnosed during childhood yes with medication and therapy.

                • Lisa Renee says:

                  Interesting, I didn’t know you could “cure” it. I don’t want to get into how I learned but a child can not been diagnosed as having no conscience until 16 no matter how many criteria they fit.

                  • Nancy says:

                    I didn’t say cure. You are right about not giving a formal Dx of sociopath in a child
                    but they do start with meds and therapy. Once you are an adult from what I’ve read
                    it’s already too late.

                  • chismosa says:

                    Yes i hadn’t thought that either LR. Interesting.

                    You and Nancy are such twins

              DJ my BFF has 2 boys and I keep pushing her to go for a girl. I would die with all boys. I’m way too girly.
              I feel like you lol!

              • djprincessc says:

                I would dieeeeeeeee. I love boys because they are funny and can always lighten up the mood and do crazy things, but all boys for me with my HK, all my makeup and clothes IDK what I WOULD DO!! LOL. We def agree on this!! lol.

                • chismosa says:

                  However, i do want to point out that i KNOW and realize boys have very very special relationships with their mothers. That is a special love, just as a daughter with her father. But the mother gave birth so….
                  My friend, she is just SOooooo close to her sister, another cousin-raised as sister, her mother, and she lost her father when we were in high school. So females are a big core-thing in her family so i wish she had a girl! But she’s having some problems with this 2nd one, tough pregnancy and such, so i don’t know………. i’m hoping for an oopsie moment of passion and a girl will come. Plus she’s redhead so i’d love for her to have a redhead daughter. LOL!

                  i do realize the joy of having boys. Plus boys don’t give as much trouble as girls do — in the long run. Boys are ‘simpler’ shall we say, and not as a put-down 😉

                  Girls/ hormones/ teenage years can be very tough for mothers. I’m in my 30s still giving my mother issues. But luckily she has a sweet wonderful placid son as well to go to. Ha!

    I first became acquainted with Nancy Grace on Satellite Radio during the Scott Peterson or Wacko Jacko trial. I found her incredibly biased and unprofessional then. Nothing’s changed. Only now, besides waving the “I’m a victim, my college fiance was murdered!” flag, she now can add the “I’m a mother!” flag. And she’s good at the getting choked up and almost crying thing now. She still does her famous calling one of the reporters, asking them a question, then she talks over them as they try to answer her question. The reporters with more experience with her wait a couple beats before they begin answering her question.

    I suppose Josef Goebbels was a more biased broadcaster than Nancy.

    • Nancy says:

      She’s BSC.

      • kit9 says:

        Omg! Just now on OLN, Nancy was talking with Vinnie and she interrupted him, of course, and attacked what he was saying then they cut back to him and he was rolling his eyes at her and mouthed something silently to someone off camera and then she said, ‘uh, ps, I can see you’ and he shot back ‘and I can see you’, completely seriously. lol! No love lost between these two!

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Orson, I first started watching NG on CourtTV with Johnny Cochran & I enjoyed her. Her story of changing her major to go into law after her fiance’s murder instead of teaching pulled on my heart strings. Then I found out her 100% conviction rate that she bragged about was a farce. Her record on appeal is deplorable, she has alot of over turned convictions. She worked the jury into a lather, playing on their emotions & not the facts to secure a conviction. Not cool! For years now she just brings out the worst in me. I just want to bitch slap her on GP. Since she became a mom, while I was happy for her like I would be for any woman, her histrionics became out of control. I also hate how she talks over everyone, maddening. Guess I am saying I agree with you. Lisa

      • lillybee says:

        I hated her since the time she was implying that Elizabeth Smart’s uncle was the one who had taken her, because the baby sister couldn’t describe the napper.

    • Powell says:

      orson she loves to throw thr twins in a convo whenever she can. Her husband needs to ask for a salary for them. I understand that she relates w/her fiance being murdered &she will never get over that. I was talking to my mom about it & she’s never gotten over her mom being murdered when she was a child. You just can’t get over someone you loved being murdered. You just learn to accept & live w/it.

    • T-Rex says:

      My cousin the lawyer has gone up against her and won against her, number one note about NG, she settled out 90 percent of her cases and only took cases to court she thought she could win. A large majority of her cases were overturned on appeal, and if she has been up for review at the Bar. She no longer practices law for a reason! Those in the Atlanta area thinks there was an exchange for disbarrment that she not practice law(COMPLETELY ALLEGEDLY)

      • Orson says:

        I’m pretty sure the Atlanta Prosecutor (or DA) called her in and told her “Look, you can give me your resignation today or you’ll be fired. Either way, you’re out of here by the end of business today.” She had been censured too many times for not handing over stuff to the defense on discovery.

  52. princesspindy says:

    OMG RANT ALERT!!!

    I just got into it with the phucking contractor that is doing our front. My hubby has been handling it but I am sick and tired of him coming home everyday sad because no work has been done! This guy is such a piece of shit. I told my hubby NOT to hire him but he “had a good feeling” OMG!! Just in the first few mins I caught him in a lie, I asked him why he had dirt moved against the wall when he hadn’t put on the second coat on waterproofing….
    .”oh, it doesn’t need it”,
    “well it’s in the contract”
    “it doesn’t need it”,
    “it’s in the contract”….
    “well, Mark put on 2 coats when he did it”
    “you told my husband that he only put on one coat and needed to come back and do the second coat, you need to move the dirt and put a second coat on”
    “I don’t want to do this good cop, bad cop thing with you”

    I just wanted to scream, “YOU’RE SUCK A PHUCKING LIAR CAMILLE!!!

    • Powell says:

      PrincessP don’t play good cop/bad cop. You just handle it from now on. Why do people have to be azzholes? You caught him in a lie. If you have to talk to him again just remind him “I already caught you in one lie”. Jerk.

      • princesspindy says:

        I HATE lying!!! I hate it, I hate it, I hate it!!!! It is so declasse’, lol! I knew this guy was a liar from the beginning. Why do you have to lie. To me lying is so stupid and sick. UGH!! Just tell the truth, if you are going to do it next week, just tell me, don’t lie. I really don’t care about the front yard, what I care about is that he is upsetting my hubby….that’s all I care about!!
        Don’t mess with my baby!!

        • chismosa says:

          People just suck PP. They just do. See my rant below. I’m a pessimist and will always be one. ha ha.
          I have a friend who had a similar situation and she was the one catching the person in the lie, but the guy wanted to deal with her husband. It’s just…. ridiculous. People take advantage so much.

            A*hole didn’t realize I was being nice!!! HA! What is that sound I hear……oh, it’s the sound of heavy equipment moving dirt in my front yard!!!!!!! Bitches get shit done!!!

            • Orson says:

              There was this time I had this fellow in a wristlock. Someone else approached and asked what was going on. I told him I was just having a friendly conversation with this lad about things he shouldn’t say to a female. The fellow I was conversing cried out “You call this effin’* friendly?” and I told him “Look, if you’d rather have an unfriendly conversation, I’d be happy to oblige.” and he decided friendly was just fine.

              In retrospect, he probably remained a potty mouth, but I suspect for a while, he checked to who was in earshot before he let loose.

              *To be completely honest, he didn’t actually say “effin’ “. 😳

I didn’t even have time to really react – Mr. Shamrock walked over bent that guys arm up behind his back and marched him right out of the bar – when he came back in people started clapping – the guy on the other side of me looked at him and said ” I swear I didn’t even look at her” – it was a strange night – but I bet that guy thinks twice about putting his hands where they don’t belong –

        • Cartwheels says:

          He thinks he can mess with you because you are either a woman or don’t know much about construction, do not let him get away with it and avoid at all cost your husband talking to him. From now and on handle it yourself . No husband interference is required.

    • AZGirl says:

      ALL of this should be in detail on the contract. If not, then a change order should be drawn up. No changes to what the contract says while work is being done. Do you have a Registrar of Contractors department to file a complaint? Is he licensed?

      • princesspindy says:

        Yes, he is licensed. It is in detail in the contract and when I calmly kept telling him it was in the contract, he kept changing his story….and I caught him in his lie. It will all work out, I know he doesn’t want to deal with me, but that’s too bad. I have a feeling he will finish this job asap so he doesn’t have to deal with the bad cop! moron!

        • NJBev says:

          I am so proud of what you did and who you are. It is “scammorama” in
          my area now b/c of storm. There are people on my block who still can’t
          get a reliable contractor.

          When my builder was cleaning out my house of sand ($30,000 to remove sand
          from my house- 5ft high) another person on the block asked for help.
          My builders wife was there during clean-out and said “no way” to this one
          house b/c she was never able to collect from them and they Bitched and moaned
          after every bill—“nickled and dimed” I know these people and completely
          understand where she is coming from-

          My point is that people create their own “karma”! if you are a crappy contractor
          you will be called out on it. If you are a crappy customer, the same!!!

    BB– thank you so much for that Newlyweds recap, i wasn’t even going to read through it since i was rushing to catch up on comments and did not follow the show, but i am glad i did. I think i will give it a shot now, especially as i see there is a Greek couple on it! Marrying quite quickly…. yikes. Plus they live near me- sooooo… i have to tune in. I hope i can fast forward through anyone that doesn’t interest me. The Indian woman looks like a drag queen with all that makeup in all the shots i’ve seen of them in promos. She needs to cool it.
    But thank you for the recap!

    I find it so odd that Dukes of Melrose is running on a real-time schedule it seems, last week they had the episode about Greek easter, and it was Greek easter this week, then tonight’s episode will be about the Met Ball, and the Met Ball is this week. Isn’t that so funny? I find that strange and perfect. I mean, i’m sure they taped in 2012.

    Hey, I have not been able check here, but for you trial watchers; I heard Jodi Arias was interviewed directly after the verdict was read and the interview will air tonight FoxNews, On The Record, 9pm central.

    • kit9 says:

      Thanks, some of it was aired on NG but I want to see the whole thing and wasn’t sure where to see it.

  55. chismosa says:

    Regarding the Ohio case/ must rant:
    I was watching a few minutes of Piers Morgan last night— looking for the Anderson Cooper take on it, but Piers was on— and he had on 3 woman who lived across the street from the house. They looked 1/2 asleep in sweats on and they talked about seeing—- the naked woman crawling and being yelled at across the street. The man trying to hide the woman with mattresses but they could still see.
    Then the man coming by and always delivering tons of McDonald’s food to the house on a regular basis?

    I mean—- I think there was more said but i was screaming at my tv. What the F is wrong with people that they don’t say anything if they see something odd? I guess since i’m in new york and am accustomed to the expression “if you see something say something”— but it’s like the case in the 60’s or 70’s – where the woman in NY was raped (and killed?not sure) and screamed for help and NOBODY HELPED. Kitty Genovese, just found it.
    What is WRONG with humanity? You can’t place a simple call to the police station, not even 911– just to tell them things are fishy with the house across the street? I was just so disgusted. I called my local station the other day because a house had the trunk of a car open and something on the ground, house with no lights on and a car alarm sounding, all at like 12 a.m. The police patrol occasionally here and they nicely went over to check it out.

    I know this is a happy ‘finale’ and conclusion and that we find hope in this, but why aren’t people more AWARE? I don’t even speak to my bordering neighbors that much but i know what is what in the goings-on at their houses and would totally be up the police’s grill if something seemed shady.

    Anyone else as peeved as i am? The focus is all on this miraculous recovery of the girls, and it is miraculous— but what the hell?? Those houses were all so close to each other? What about screaming— did they sound proof the homes? Didn’t sound too well-built to me if the aluminum front door was easily knocked down by the good samaritan guy who is wonderful.

    Sorry i’m just so grossed out by the neighbors situation. I’ve been to Cleveland for work a bit- and there are some seedy areas there so i know, i had to walk them,– but come on!?!

    • TexasTart says:

      Chismosa, I as as peeved as you are…ITA to it all. I think the word they use- miraculous is wrong. Sadly it’s a miracle they didn’t die there. I am glad they are out, but their lives are in effect ruined. I can’t concieve how anyone could possibly ever go back to have a normal life. Ever. 😦

    • princesspindy says:

      I saw them and I was soooooooooo pissed, I had to change the channel!!!!!! Seriously, you don’t do something???? WTF????? I remember years ago, at my old house I heard screaming. So I went outside and this woman was yelling and it was at the house on the hill up above me. So I yelled out
      “Are you okay?’
      she says “no”,
      “Should I call 911?”
      “YES!”
      So I call 911
      So I go back outside and yell “I called 911”
      and she says “GOOD, CUZ I’M GONNA KILL HIM!!!”
      OMG!! It was the first time I had ever called 911 so they send out the police, and I see all these cops coming up my hill but they were going up the wrong “long driveway” so I went and told them what she said and to go up the other hill to the other “long driveway” and it turns out it was the daughter-in-law of the neighbor and she was looking for their son cuz he was cheating on him, lol!!! I just about died when she yelled that she was gonna kill him!!! But I DID something, I just can’t believe people suck so bad!!!!

      • princesspindy says:

        *he was cheating on her

      • TexasTart says:

        It is hard to believe and I’ve been told if you’ve never lived in the hood – you don’t understand … people can’t risk sticking their noze in stuff and sometimes cops are the worst. We’ll I did not grow up in the hood or a poor area, so I guess it’s true that I would not understand and think differently of it. Like AZ Girl said yestersay she is Mrs. Kravitz, and so am I, very observant especially where animals are concerned. I am outside often and look and hear all I can. .. and some I’d rather not see or hear, HA!

        Interesting 911 story, PrincessP, LOL.

      • chismosa says:

        Thank you, i thought i was in the Twilight Zone. People just DON’T care. Or do, and choose to look the other way, which is the same thing essentially.
        Unbelievable.
        Good for you Princess and funny outcome

    • djprincessc says:

      I’m with you. But the reason is simply because 90% of people just DON’T care, people today are SO into themselves and “ALL ABOUT ME” that they just don’t care. If it doesn’t affect them they are not going to help. Esp in CA and Socal everyone minds their own business and doesn’t give a shit. Its sad. I think people are also scared of getting hurt, you really don’t know what is going to happen if you get involved in someones dilemma and I don’t think most people want to take the chance these days anymore.

      Like one time a few years ago I was going to the ATM and there was this older man in front of me using it, well all of a sudden he looks at me and “says it got stuck can you help me?” I just looked at him and said “I have no clue what to do” and left. I felt sooooo bad for not helping him, but being a young woman you just don’t know. I was scared it was a lure or trap! I’ve seen too many shows where those type of things happen, so I left and came back when nobody was there. It’s kinda hard to tell when to help or not these days but if I saw those women and noticed all that suspicious activity I would DEFINITELY call the police! But remember I said the police had been to the house 2xs and never did a thing. Its sad.

      • princesspindy says:

        I think you did the right thing….as a woman you have to have your guard up at all times, sad but true!!!!

      • chismosa says:

        DJ good job leaving that. I don’t know I feel like I talk to people a lot, like strangers, that maybe I would have stayed to help the guy but you’re right it could have been a way to lure me!
        Omgod! You are making me think,…..

        • djprincessc says:

          I am waaaayyy too suspicious. I was even telling my mom when the whole Boston bombing happened how somewhere I heard (can’t remember where) that they can lure you by leaving strollers with bombs in them or leave a kid around to make you think they need help. My mom and I LOVE babies/kids and we’d def be those people to go running to rescue one without even thinking, but these days you just have to be SO SO careful. 😦

    • kit9 says:

      Apparently, the naked women in dog collar thing didn’t happen. On CNN, in between Jodi coverage, they said the women have said that didn’t happen.

      • Catseye says:

        I think I remember the Piers Morgan story that Chismosa was referring to. It was 2 teen girls and their mother. They told their mother that they saw this naked woman and I think they could tell she was in distress, with the idiot depraved pervert trying to cover her with a mattress. The mother brushed it off, I even remember the look of disappointment on the girl’s faces. I think maybe a lot of people noticed stuff, but just didn’t want to get involved.

    • lillybee says:

      The thing is that the women did say that they were never allowed outside.

      • Catseye says:

        True. But I’m wondering if these 3 are the only ones involved?

        • chismosa says:

          There’s another woman that they showed missing around the same time/ area that I know they were looking into. don’t know what happened with that though.

        Too late for that. She needs to shut her mouth up right now as she is already
        giving interviews as we speak.

        • kit9 says:

          I go out for a bit and come back and the crazy witch has given an interview! She said that Juan Martinez was ‘shady’ and kept evidence out of the trial. The reporter said she’s referring to the forged letters Jodi wrote herself that were of Travis confessing to being a pedophile. Then she said that the reason the public were happy she was convicted is because a psychologist told her people feel the need to prosecute others to make themselves feel better. That’s right, it’s not because she’s a brutal evil cold blooded killer that we’re happy she’s been held accountable…it’s because we’re big ol’ meanies with insecurity problems or whatevs…Juan absolutely nailed her….NOTHING IS EVER HER FAULT.

          • kit9 says:

            She also managed to get in a dig at Travis, saying his family is free to remember how they want…..hint hint that he wasn’t who they thought he was.

            • Nancy says:

              Wasn’t that a low blow. I hope she lives a very long time on death row as she will be
              forgotten in a very short time. Look at Scott Peterson. No body talks about him anymore.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Still being a hateful smartass.

              • kit9 says:

                Exactly. Hateful smartass pretty much sums it up. Wow. And, apparently, she was heard screaming at her attorneys after the verdict. And, correction….it should be ‘persecute’, not prosecute. She thinks she’s been persecuted. Yeah, that’s it. I was half expecting Jodi to compare herself to Jesus. She is chilling!

      I read it and wasn’t really surprised by it. Kroy wants to come off as this good ole “all American” guy, but he’s just as skeevy as most professional athletes out there. Notice I said most, not all. He’s shown his true self a couple of times; when dealing with Kim’s mom and aunt in the wedding bathroom situation and when dealing with the Bravo camera crew when Kim did her dramatic walkout from the show. I see Kim taking him for all his money, then leaving him when it’s all gone and living on the child support he’s going to have to pay her for years to some. I’m not cynical in the least, am I? Lol!

        I watched this week’s Don’t be Tardy and they showed Kroy taking the first steps to adopt the girls. He seems genuinely invested in not just Kim but the girls and of course their little boys. I hope they make it. But then, I’m a hopeless romantic.

  59. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    This Jodi Arias-she really has got some act!! Now she wants the DP-she thinks she is so much smarter than every person alive-If she wants to die-let her live-if wants life-give her death. She will play it off that she decided her fate either way-I’m so over this crazy bitch!!!

        She needs attention in order to breathe…take that away and it will kill her.

            • kit9 says:

              Exactly. I think she would view her death as a deprivation to the world at large. She’s that awesome. I almost choked listening to her say, ‘Please give me the ultimate freedom’ with the DP….when she so clearly means…..don’t give me the DP. As you said, thinks she’s the smartest person in the room. Juan so perfectly nailed her with the description as the master manipulator. She’s just been declared guilty of M1 and she’s still manipulating! This next phase should be fascinating…she could actually testify again.

                I think she’s going to have to as I haven’t seen too many of her friends among the
                courtroom.

    Once NG stopped fussing about the suicide watch and her children and her murdered fiance and when one of her kids was sick and actually let the reporters get a word in edgewise, they said that it’s generally routine for someone just found guilty of Murder 1 to be put on suicide watch.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Orson-sometimes I get a strange feeling that you are my brother posing as “Orson”….everything you said about NG is exactly what he says…when I really want to aggravate him I just whisper “tot mom”…or I bring up NG and the “nip slip” on DWTS!!

      • Orson says:

        I’m pretty sure I’d remember if I had a sister. But if you want to adopt me, maybe we could work something out.

      What an a**. He should be fired for this.

    • ladebra says:

      She should have asked him if he was into freaky sex. There is just as much evidence that he is as there is that she is. Sick.

    @Kit- I keep trying to respond to you upthread and keep getting errors– I can’t believe all that stuff about Jodi. She seriously should be a course in John jay school of criminal justice. Especially since she’s a female

    I am in utter SHOCK over what Nightline said happened in Ohio and that the girl Amanda gave birth at the house in a kiddie pool, the girl Gina delivered the baby.
    Gina claims she got pregnant 5 times and the guy aborted the baby by kicking her each time. So one could have a baby but the other not?

    They all 3 got kidnapped the same way, taking a ride from this guy. Whatever happened to just don’t talk to strangers?

    • princesspindy says:

      Wasn’t he a friend of one of the girl’s families??

      • chismosa says:

        I feel Princess, that there mayyyyy be a connection to the Hispanic girl, however I saw on the news yesterday about another girl who was not allowed to play with him/ near him, I’m messing it up.
        So, I’m not sure …..

        • princesspindy says:

          Oh, I haven’t really been reading any details cuz it got too overwhelming for me….it is too much to contemplate!

      • TexasTart says:

        DeJesus was friends with Castro’s daughter. There is news footage from after DeJesus disapearance of Castro’s daughter claiming she was probably the last to see her. I think he lost custody of his kids when they were young, but the point is he was likely not a stranger or was trusted (to accept a ride).

    LOL!!! Stars: “Alexis is concerned that she keeps “turning the other cheek” and she keeps getting crapped on.  Perhaps it’s because you’re turning the wrong cheek, honey.”

  69. TexasTart says:

And thanks to Stars for.making what I could no longer.watch – actually funny! Fairy dust, this is for.real?! Now I get the Mama Elsa comparison!
    BB thanks for Newlyweds, I admit I have yet to read yours, but not for lack of intereill do that at lunch, but I did.see the end with Tina and Tarz, Tarzina? Kind of an interesting match of someone totally ober the top….are we sure she’s not.really a drag.queen…and a guy who somewhat doesn’t have a clue and get caught up on her hiarchy. I will read and tune in to watch a whole episode. BB, I guess you will know by conversation here whether to keep up with blogging it.
    I hope someone did MDLNY because I went to sleep.during 2nd airing and.wonder.how did that work out for Fredrick. Heck, there probably is a new blog as I type so darn slow on a android….
