Newlyweds: The First Year, Episode 4 by BB

Jeff and Blair are in Savannah, GA for their commitment ceremony.  They have a red, white and blue party and two of the party-goers show up in the same dress (red, white and blue, of course).  Blair’s friend Laura makes a toast and Jeff’s friend gives a little speech about how happy she is for Jeff and that he has lots of people who love him.  Blair’s mom takes Jeff aside to reassure him that everything is going to be OK even if his parents aren’t there. I love Blair’s mom.

On the day of the commitment ceremony, Blair is having a drink with his mom and family.  Jeff is alone in his room with no family.  His closest friend Tracy shows up to support him and asks him how she can help him.  They talk about how he couldn’t even tell her, his closest friend, he was gay, even though she already knew it.  She tells Jeff he has to let go of the burden he’s carrying and be proud of who he is and that he is loved.

It’s commitment ceremony time.  Jeff is wearing a white suit with a green bow tie and Blair is wearing a black suit with a polka dot bow tie.  They arrive in a horse drawn carriage.  Jeff is very nervous because he’s never been so public about his sexuality before.  They both have tears during the ceremony and Jeff’s anxieties go away as they are saying their vows.  They are declared husband and husband and everyone cheers when they seal the deal with a kiss.

At Blair’s and Jeff’s reception, Jeff gets plastered (the food looks amazing by the way).  Blair loves that Jeff got tipsy and let loose.  Blair tells the guests that the cake is made of three different flavors and they should try to taste all three because they are all “tri-sexual.”  Then the dancing begins.  You can tell Blair was in a boy band and Jeff wasn’t.  But Jeff doesn’t let that stop him.  Blair does the splits and splits his pants and yells “Hey Jeff, easy access!”  They are my favorite couple.

Tina and Tarz are in Loma Linda, CA visiting her OB doctor to talk about getting pregnant.  Tina tells her doctor she really wants a girl and is reading up about how to have a girl (like you shouldn’t have an orgasm during sex if you want a girl).  Her doctor tells her that’s all crap and it’s all luck of the draw.  She tells her when that child comes out, whether a boy or a girl, she will love it.  She tells them to have sex once only on days 12, 14, and 16 of her cycle (that’s three times a month).  If they don’t get pregnant in six months, Tina’s doctor wants to take a look at Tina’s eggs because she’s getting really, really close to being very old.

Next, Tarz and Tina are in bed where Tina has a calendar so they can figure out when to have sex to get pregnant.  Tarz thinks the sex calendar is ridiculous and it doesn’t work for him at all (I guess he doesn’t really want to get pregnant).  Tina also thinks it’s going to be difficult because of Tarz’ work schedule (he sometimes works for 20 hours at a time).  I mean, why go to a doctor if you’re not going to take the doctor’s advice?  Tina asks Tarz if he really wants to have kids.  He tells her not in that structured kind of way. Tina tells him if he wants to have kids, they can’t take it lightly in a fun kind of way.  Tarz is very against being told what to do and when to do it.  Let’s just say he’s a very selfish kind of guy and probably shouldn’t be having a kid anytime soon if ever.  Like Tina says, they must’ve gone to two separate doctor appointments.  They end the conversation by Tarz saying they will play it by ear and Tina saying she will go elsewhere to get the sperm if she has to.

Tarz and Tina are in NY now and Tarz is in the gym working out with his trainer/friend.  He shows him a picture of a ripped man and says he wants to look better than that.  He’s been working very hard and not getting to the gym enough.  He then tells his friend about the sex schedule and they joke about it.  Tarz is feeling stressed about working and making a baby on schedule.  He looks at it as if it’s a chore.  His trainer/friend asks him what’s more important to him, work or a baby, and Tarz says he doesn’t know.

Tina is talking to Ryan, her choreographer and tells him the baby thing is not going so well inferring Tarz can’t get it up on demand.  Tarz says that is not an accurate statement.  They are having very little sex and Tina says she could be in a g-string and Tarz would tell her she’s cute, not sexy.  Ryan shows her some sexy moves she can use to get Tarz in the mood.

Alaska and Kim are in the Harlem apartment.  It’s morning and Alaska gets up and makes all kinds of noise, disturbing Kim’s sleep.  Kim likes to wake up with Alaska next to her with a kiss, not with him blasting music in the morning.  She gets up and says to him “really?”  He gives her a half-hearted apology and then walks away when she wants five minutes of his time to talk about her work.  He goes into the shower and she wants to join him.  He locks the door and she’s determined to go in, even if she has to pick the lock.

Kim’s newly reupholstered antique couch has been delivered and Alaska hates it.  Kim loves it.  Alaska says it’s not comfortable and it’s not something you can sit on.  It’s not going to work for him.  Only two people can fit on the couch and he tells her he wants to be comfortable and he wants the apartment to be a home.  Kim wants the apartment to look good.  Kim tells him they are going to have to work it out and suggests they rearrange the room.  He calls her a brat and she calls him a brat.  She agreed to his red porn rug so she thinks she should get her couch.  It’s always a power struggle with these two.

The Bickersons (Kim and Alaska) go to a cooking class.  Kim has to cook for Alaska once a month (poor thing) and it has to be a Haitian dish.  Their lesson includes some Haitian recipes.  Alaska is happy to see Kim cooking his mom’s recipes.  His mom is no longer living and he makes light of it instead of opening up about his true feeling of losing her as Kim thinks he should.

Kim is nagging Alaska about leaving for LA and not spending enough time with her.  She tells him she loves him even though it sucks that he’s traveling so much.  They really should have talked about this before they got married, especially when they both say this marriage is forever and divorce is not an option.

John has taken over a tanning salon in Suffolk County for less than the cost of a Hyundai.  John is thinking about letting Kathryn run the business to keep her busy so she won’t spend so much time shopping.  He thinks it would be better to keep it in the family rather than getting a business partner to run it.

John’s mentor and friend Les pays a visit to Kathryn and John’s house.  They’ve had businesses together in the past and John wants his advice because Les and Les’s wife have been business partners.  Les tells John to compartmentalize their partnership.  Don’t talk about business at home.  John is used to being the boss and Les tells him to set Kathryn up and then let her go.  If she stumbles, she stumbles.  John is more worried about being out thousands of dollars if she does.

At the tanning salon, Kathryn has a meeting with her staff, consisting of four young ladies (high school or college age).    She tells them they are now “skin consultants.”  John shows up and Kathryn feels he’s checking up on her.  He wants to do the books and she thinks he’s being controlling.  He hands out W-2 forms for the staff to fill out.  John says he’s being honest when he says he sees Kathryn as more of an employee than a business owner.  Kathryn wants to make some changes to the salon and John is afraid to give her access to a lot of money.

Remember a couple of weeks ago when John and Kathryn were opening their wedding cards and I wanted to know how much cash they received?  $40,500.  Wowzers!  Is this normal?

    Good morning everyone. #BabyWatch2013. It’s so exciting. Lulu & Mr. Lulu have gone to the hospital! Yeahhhhhh! We are rooting for you. 🙂

  2. Powell says:

    Cartwheels I agree w/you 1000% about Tamra. It’s what you choose to do to turn your life around when you’ve been kicked in the teeth.

  3. Rebecca says:

    Wait – isn’t Kathryn pregnant? She should stay far away from the tanning beds.

  4. Best of luck to LuLu today. #BlogBaby

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Whoooo hooooo Lulu
      #babywatch2013!!!! #BlogBaby

    • BB says:

      What a blessing today will be for you LuLu. Thinking about you, hon!

    • Yeah LuLu! Wishing you the very best! #babywatch2013!

    • chismosa says:

      Good luck Lulu!!! And going to “attempt” a WordPress emoticon here

      • LaineyLainey says:

        love those baby emoticons

      • lizzle says:

        Thanks for being inclusive Chimosa… all I ever see are those boxes. Not that I mind it here… but the kids have an aunt that I am friends with and sometimes she texts me those boxes and nothing else… I tried to tell her I can only see boxes, but I have given up. I assume when I get the boxes that it is a heart or smiley face… I hope I haven’t ignored a distress text of sadness. Boxes really don’t show any emotion.

        Oh… and Lulu… I hope you have pushed the lil one out and are relaxing with your new love.

        • chismosa says:

          This person must be assuming you have an iphone
          I have friends with blackberries (I’m not so sure about androids or the galaxies), so they told me and so I don’t send the “boxes” to those people. How lame of your friend. Just tell her ! 😮

          Hey I was tardy to the iphone party. Just got one finally in October!

          • lizzle says:

            I just got my smartphone which is on the droid system about a month ago. I am always behind the times. I would love to have an iphone… just so I can see what is in the boxes! Just kidding… I actually like the size of the iphone and there is so much out there (accessories and apps) are for i phones. I had the choice of one whole phone case when I went to the accessory store.

            And my friend… I have told her, but it didn’t sink in. I will tell her again the next time she does it. She is a sweet person, but a bit of a flake.

  5. ladebra says:

    Boston you have a gift !!

    Are you kidding me? Tamra didn’t tell her mother what she was going to say on camera? Do we believe that? Maybe she doesn’t have emotions … Wait…. Isn’t that a sociopath? Narcissistic sociopath … By George, I think I’ve got it. *gag me with a spoon*.

  6. HuskerHuny says:

    Happy back to work Tuesday! I’ve been off since last Thursday. Hope everyone had an enjoyable Memorial Day and thanks again to all vets – past, present and future. Your sacrifice is remarkable!

    The tornado sirens went off in my town around 1:15 a.m. Monday morning so I spent a bit of time in my basement. Had to get up, put my clothes back on, found two flashlights – one with batteries that didn’t work and one without batteries. Found a candle and lighter, a radio that worked and off to the basement I, my husband and son went. Fortunately nothing major, but winds measuring 77 mph were recorded just north of my home. Looks like the next two days could be stormy here in Huskerland.

    • cusi77 says:

      Take care Husker! Sending good thoughts and Angels your way! Xoxo.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Stay safe HH!!!!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      So sorry! There were tornadoes sighted out further west of you, I saw reported by one of the chasers out of Lincoln. Nothing like a siren to wake you up and then it’s so hard to get any sleep at all the rest of the night.

    • chismosa says:

      Stay safe

    • HuskerHuny says:

      A co-worker just got into work and showed me pictures of her house after the storm early Monday morning. A very large tree branch (more like half of the tree) in their back yard split off and landed on their roof. It put a hole in the roof, damaged shingles, soffit, gutters, windows and siding. Tore the doors off a shed that they just put up on Saturday. Water damage inside the house and just a big ol’ mess overall. Her roof is not yet two years old from the last storm. Some of the tree landed in the driveway and for some reason, they didn’t have their cars parked in it – thankfully! No where near an F-5 tornado obviously, but a big mess none the less. Could be some bad weather all over in the next few days, so everyone please be safe.

    • Powell says:

      Husker I saw this A.M. that there is going to be some rough weather this week. Stay safe. Get some extra batteries if you can.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Thanks for the battery reminder. I’m on it! Funny story about the other night. All of a sudden, my husband stood up and ran up the stairs. I though he heard or felt something and it scared me. He came running back down the steps and had two Pepsi’s in his hands – said he didn’t want to get thirsty! Maybe I should look into getting a refrigerator in the basement as well.

        • Powell says:

          Your husband is funny. You can get a small one. One the size that college students have in their dorm room.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Be safe. Thanks for the great reminds for all of us to check our ’emergency supplies’. I know us folks in SoCal are always suppose to have an earthquake kit ready.

  7. cusi77 says:

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Hahha! Thank you Boston for the captions, you are a genius! Thank for the Blogs ladies!

  8. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Maybe if Tamra wasn’t so rude on WWHL and on twitter/FB her speech may have been better received-but since we know that she is still a bitchy mean girl it’s hard to feel sorry or empathize with her.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Amen Jill! Tamra tweeted to Andy thanks for letting her air her sh*t & how much she loves him (gag me). I tweeted to both of them that based on her behavior towards the caller on WWHL, she hasn’t changed at all.

      This episode had to of been one of the most boring, tedious hours ever. The only part I “enjoyed” was seeing Vicki with baby Troy.

      I am so over Lydia & her mother. This is her storyline???? Seriously???? And where does she get off telling Alexis to make the first move. Why doesn’t Tamra get her butt over to Alexis’ house & apologize for her behavior.

      Heather & Terry’s conversations are so fake, so scripted I nearly fell asleep.

      Gretchen came off as an idiot in the doctor’s office. Speaking of which, can someone explain something to me. Maybe I’m as stupid as Gretchen.

      The fertility doctor recommended IVF (kaching kaching) cos of Slade’s vasectomy. Why does she have to go through that if it’s not going to be Slade’s sperm? Why can’t she just be artificially inseminated? Maybe she can use Eddie’s (yuck!). Didn’t get that at all.

      Bring on the NJ housewives. Altho I think I might regret saying that!!

      • ladebra says:

        I think a vasectomy doesn’t stop sperm production it just stops the delivery. So technically they could still use Slade. But it’s been 10 years and over time the production does decline … so maybe there is an issue. Sorry, best guess.

        • chismosa says:

          That is icky to me. Where does all that sperm go!!????
          I must research

        • plainviewsue says:

          I was curious, so I looked it up.

          It said after a vasectomy the man no longer ejaculates sperm (semen is a different matter). but he still produces it; it is just absorbed back into the body.

          The doctor was right in talking about the success rate. If the procedure was done more than 10 years ago (which Slade’s was), the success rate is about 25%. The reversal is about $10,000 (Gretchen, start producing more of those hideous bags) and the procedure must be done under anesthesia.

          So I ask again. If they are not able to use Slade’s sperm (this posting is starting to make me gag!), why does she have to undergo IVF? Just go to a sperm bank.

          Either way, I cannot see Gretchen as a mommy. Too self absorbed & bragging about Rolls Royces as gifts when it wasn’t!

          • missusmc says:

            I think the IVF will be with Slade’s “recovered” sperm. That’s what I took from last night’s episode. That way, they can just isolate the sperm and fertilize the egg with IVF rather than obtaining a sample for insemination.

          • chismosa says:

            Just saw this Plainview Sue— thanks for the research. Quite gross and interesting.

            This doesn’t bode well for Slade

      • Powell says:

        Sue will Tamra go and see Alexis to apologize after giving her speech & having a “lightbulb” moment w/Eddie that she doesn’t know why she’s so angry w/people? Heck no.

        • T-Rex says:

          TrailerTrashTrampySue will never change, all she is doing is “damage control” for her despicable behaviour, so her spin-off won’t be the ratings disaster I think it’s going to be. NOTHING that happened in her childhood or upbringing gives her the right to be the disgusting human being she has become.

  9. missusmc says:

    Hasn’t the main argument against Alexis been that bullying is a serious problem for kids these days, and we aren’t supposed to just throw that word around because it takes away from the real problems? And hasn’t Tamra been the ringleader at all the reunions, in Costa Rica, etc, regarding authenticity and how she is an open book? So why is it that all of a sudden we are hearing this sob story of how she was suicidal, on her 5th season? And don’t get me wrong; I’m certainly not trying to make light of suicide. I realize the seriousness of mental illness and suicide. So for Tamra to throw that out, presumably to gain sympathy (because her authentic self surely would have mentioned it before now), is the lowest of the lows. And yet Alexis is the bad one for using the bully word to gain sympathy.

    She’s just a disgusting person. Absolutely disgusting.

    • ladebra says:


    • ladebra says:

      And another thing, her trying to shame her mother for how she was raised — well, at 40something Tamra can’t use the excuse of her parents anymore. Get over it Tamra and take responsibility for your life.

      • LaineyLainey says:


        • chismosa says:

          Lainey happy to see you back in 🔵🔵blue again. I didn’t recognize you before
          Or Boston without her shamrock 🍀🍀

          • Powell says:

            Chismosa these ladies have been changing their dresses around her lately. 🙂

            • chismosa says:

              Seriously I was getting the dizzies like Lucille Austero. (Arrested Development/Liza Minelli)


              • Powell says:

                LOL. I remember that. That was too funny. I’m sad the new epis are only on Netflix.

                • chismosa says:

                  Me too Powell! I was on the phone with them and then Verizon. We don’t stream here—- still working on it!

                  I live for GOB and Lucille. My favorites. Steal every single scene.

          • Powell says:

            I’ll say pants for MTH if he changes his gravatar. 🙂

      • chismosa says:

        Applause 👏👏👏
        I wish some other reality stars would stop blaming how they grew up for how they behave/ how their lives or personalities turned out. (cough, not going to mention names :shock:) 😉😉

      • Powell says:

        And Tamra will sit there & take it when her kids ask the sane question of her?

        • T-Rex says:

          Yep, and parading her awful behaviour on national TV so that it will be there for them to see forever, including the lies she told about Simon(their father) and how she trashed him in the press.

    • Dixie says:

      Anyone else wondering when these “poor me” talking heads were filmed? Were they very recently filmed, in an attempt to make Tamra look sympathetic before her Wedding Special? I am sure Bravo agreed to it months ago, so the recent hateful behavior by Tamra on WWHL and Twitter may have needed Bravo to make her look sympathetic.

    • trudie says:


  10. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    BB-great recap of Newlywed-I have decided that the only couple I really care about are Blair and Jeff-I love them-and I love Blair’s mom-she is fab!! Their wedding was fun and festive and it was great seeing Jeff let loose…I think Bravo should ban all bathtub scenes-they are awkward and strange-no matter who is in the tub!!!
    Oh and I didn’t really like that couch either-or the red porn rug-I think maybe I just don’t like Alaska!!!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I don’t know about the dollar amounts (tho I’ve been to weddings where people stuffed money into the couple’s clothing – particularly the bride — while they danced, and the collected considerable cash from this) at that type of wedding. But what surprised me is that they said the NAME and AMOUNT of what was contributed. I would think some people might not appreciate having their name and level of generosity announced on TV!

      Jill, I agree with you that these couples seem like poor matches. I’m not sure I even like Blair and Jeff all that much either.

    • BB says:

      Yep, I didn’t even mention the bathtub scene. A little too much for my taste even though I like Blair and Jeff.

    • Powell says:

      JNNTJ I love that Blair’s mom called them “her boys”. I feel badly for Jeff. No one should feel/receive rejection from their parents because they are not what their parents want them to be.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Powell-I too feel bad for Jeff-I’m glad he found someone like Blair who has such a terrific mother!! His parents are missing out-so sad. In this day and age you would think people would be more progressive!!

      • chismosa says:

        Powell that is so sad and makes me want to watch them … I may tune in to their storyline

        To JILL |||
        I think it’s precisely because of the times his parents are from that they can’t accept this (unless it’s a religious reason?)

        I think generations on from today would be hard-pressed to not accept. Those are the ones that it will be truly shocking to hear about.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Chimosa-you may be right about the times his parents are from but I still think there are a lot of progressive “older” people in the world today. My Dad is 70 and even if he doesn’t feel comfortable with the ways of the “young” people he does his best to keep his relationships with his grandchildren(17 of them) and children-whatever our choices are. I could never imagine my father shunning one of his own family members-but I know it happens in families!!!

          • chismosa says:

            I completely agree with you Jill. And my father I hope– would be the same way —- lol
            Just giving a possible excuse

  11. realhousewifeva says:

    BB, in certain cultures it is common to give money for the wedding gift and depending on how many people are at the wedding, you can really make a lot. We got 36,000 plus tons of gold jewelry (another common gift for family to give) on our wedding.

    • Kansas Girl says:


    • chismosa says:

      Gold jewelry, that’s so interesting RHE— can I ask you what culture that is/was? Indian? Persian?

      Imagine getting DIAMONDS as a common wedding thing!!!?!!

      I know here in ny where I’m from its $$$$$$$$$ for weddings. I’m talking Italian, Irish, Greek, I believe Jewish too.
      Like the Abba song. $$$$$$
      (I adore Abba)

      I’m going to run some of those greek last names by my parents to see if we know any of the contributors. Haha
      My last name has 12 letters so she lucked out with their short names. I hope this HCG beyotch isn’t hyphenating.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        Maybe your folks know this couple!!! You could give us the scoop on them.

        • chismosa says:

          Ewww no. She seemed harmless at first to me but he’s beyond ridiculous. If anything their parents would know my father or our family friends. I’ll have to sleuth.

          They may attend my church who knows. Our church is overflowing right now I don’t recognize anyone.

          The church they married is where my younger brother was baptized. The husband is ridiculous. I can’t take him. He and the father from my big fat greek wedding give greek guys a bad rap. Lol!
          She is STARTING to annoy me. I think she needs to go back to her career.

          • Kansas Girl says:

            Maybe I should have said they might know OF them. I wouldn’t want to know them either. They are both so annoying. But to know OF them, that might be fun.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I am Arabic 🙂

        • chismosa says:

          Thank you…. Oooooh so interesting. — so I have to look up the countries in the Arabian peninsula.
          Do you have belly dancing too?? My parents always loved that–

    • LaineyLainey says:


    • melthehound says:

      When I was going to get married (20 years Ago), I was told not to worry about the cost (I was going to have to pay for this shindig) because it would come back as cash gifts, more than enough to cover the cost. I couldn’t justify spending as much on a wedding for ONE day, as a hell of a down payment on a house (for potentially a lifetime). Then, I would hear from her family, what cheapskates all these people were. RSVP 2 people, pay for 2 people, in the ‘gift’ and bring 5 people. She wanted 500 people, I wanted 50 max. It never got past the discussion phase and I’m glad for that because I’m certain I would now be divorced and still paying for the wedding.

      • Catseye says:

        Sounds like you dodged a bullet there. I wish many times that I would’ve. My ex and I both agreed on a small wedding. For some reason the low-life’s, low-life mother invited a bunch of free-loading relatives, who like you said, brought extra uninvited guests with a $5.00 gift, if even that (not kidding). Of course, the refreshments ran out immediately and I was SOOO embarrassed. Then the stupid b!tch had people over to her house afterward. I never figured out why the low-life’s parents couldn’t just contribute to the wedding, since I was on strike for 3wks and most of the “guests” were their relatives.

        • melthehound says:

          Definite dodge, Catseye.. Sorry you weren’t able to.. Judging from your words, things didn’t end so well.

      • Donna says:

        back in the real old,, olden days, it was customary for the parents of the Bride to pay for the wedding, grooms family rehearsal dinner and wedding booze.

        • melthehound says:

          That’s the way I was told it was supposed to be but, her parents didn’t have money and weren’t willing to admit it. So, they insisted, through her, that we go all out for this wedding so THEY wouldn’t look bad to their family and friends. I basically said phuck all those people, and it went downhill from there.,

          • Contessa says:

            Jeff, you really dodged the bullet big time. Your ex was a beyotch to put you in that situation. I have an understanding of in-laws that have to appear to be living the good life – me late-ex inlaws were like that. We bought and paid for a 3 bedroom condo on the golf course in a beautiful area of Las Vegas for them (it turned out to be an excellent investment). However she was almost catatonic that we never tell people we bought the place. She was like that about everything instead of being honest. I hate when people do this kind of crap, live according to your means. Also who knows 500 people to invite to a wedding? That is ludicrous unless you are head of a state?

              The 500 person guest list was / is for the purpose of soliciting gifts. I believed that then, I believe it now. That is, unless, there are 20 or 30 aunts and uncles with all the cousins that come with that and wives or husbands of each, (which does happen) to be invited as family between the B&G but, I couldn’t see inviting friends of family or friends of friends just hoping they would at least cover their own costs. Let’s face it. Ultimately I didn’t care about them and I doubt they cared about either of us.

              When her parents had her call me to solicit a $10k loan from my parents, I knew then what I was up against (don’t know why it took that for me to figure it out.. Must have been thinking with the wrong one 😉 ). The loan wasn’t ever going to happen but there were a lot of issues at the time that led to the demise of the relationship.

        • Catseye says:

          True. Although in my case, my parents were divorced, my mother had remarried and didn’t work. My father wasn’t really involved in my life, so actually my stepfather and *I* paid for my wedding (and I also paid for the honeymoon, because I married a loser). I didn’t have a rehearsal dinner or any type of bridal shower either, which is why I feel that the loser’s parents should’ve kicked in something–besides forgiving a $300 debt as “our wedding gift.” But all’s well that end’s well, since I got rid of him years ago and my life is SO much better.

          Me too 😀 .. I think if it were just her and me, we could have been happy but it wasn’t going to be that way and the closer we got to actually planning things, the worse it got. Thankfully, there wasn’t any money spent.

  12. Good Morning Lovelies!! I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend! I have not been around much while dealing with a bit of “life”, but hope you won’t forget about me and my little blog. I will jump in when I can.

    Just know I still send Love & Light to you all everyday!!

    Great photos and captions boston! You are hysterical little lady!

    BB, I tried to catch a bit of this show but it is not working for me. You are wonderful to recap. Hope you had a lovely time with family and “Just Jack” this weekend.

    NMD, you are such a trooper. Much love to you for keeping the blog going!

    Watching OC Housewives from last night.
    Just the fact that the OB/GYN doctor felt he had to tell Gretchen that the baby grows in the uterus
    says it all to me. OMG!

    BB…Finished season 1 & 2 of Call the Midwife. What a beautiful show. Will there be a season 3?
    I sure hope so.

    Lulu…Thinking of you. Hopefully this will be a pain free delivery. 🙂

  16. T-Rex says:

    I am not watching the OldCrones of BeverlyHillsAdjacent, but did TrailerTrashTrampySue say that she was suicidal during one of the seasons and that she had a somewhat crappy upbringing which gives her apparently free-reign to be a BULLY(she is) and a piece of sh*t towards anyone she feels like? I have a friend that had a truly awful upbringing, her mother kidnapped her from her father(who had custody) when she was two and her mother told her that her father left them, she found out the truth at 16. This mother changed husbands and boyfriends more than she did her underwear. Since this mother changed the kids names, social security numbers and forged their birth certificates, DCF didn’t know she was kidnapped or missing. She was pulled into Foster Homes more than 10 times, and one of her mother’s husbands sexually abused her. At 16 she finally got herself emancipated and during the court proceedings was when an investigator found her real father and all of the documents he had from searching for her for years. My friend is a DOLL and a GEM, she is so sweet, she has 4 boys and they are all well loved and college graduates and fine young gentleman, not a single one ever in trouble. I would also mention that her first husband beat the crap out of her for the 15 years she stayed with the miserable S.O.B. So TrailerTrashTrampySUE get the phuck over yourself, and your lies and bullying she is a complete disgrace. Shame on Bravo for paying her to act this way. Glad I am not watching.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I love stories like this. I love stories of people who had stopped making excuses and had turned their lives around.
      No excuses, just hard work and breaking the circle.
      Your friend probably could had made a thousand excuses to be a screw up and even a prostitute, end up in jail or with some addiction, and people would had understood her due to her upbringing, but she decided to break the circle and give her kids a different life.
      That I can applaud and admire.

      • T-Rex says:

        She has a TREMENDOUS husband now and he loves her so much. Bonus his business took off 5 years ago and they are now financially super secure, he credits her for his good luck

    • missusmc says:

      The difference between your friend and Tamra is your friend actually went through those experiences. Tamra is exaggerating the truth to create a storyline that justifies her behavior.

      • T-Rex says:

        YEP and that’s what makes TrailerTrashTrampSue a disgrace and her beahviour disgusting! She is no role model she is who you should NOT be, and Bravo in their infinite stupidity gives this loser a spinoff, bad enough paying her for one show, but then paying her for two. I really hope it TANKS and does so in supreme fashion. This whole “reputation redemption” that Bravo is setting up is going to be an EPIC FAIL in my opinion

        • missusmc says:

          In her blog, Vicki writes that she did not know about Tamra’s suicide attempt. I thought they were very best friends? Wouldn’t some of her past have come up at some point?

          • Rebecca says:

            If it was true, then yes.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I believe that is Vicki’s way of saying that in her (Vicki’s) opinion; Tamra’s latest claims are not true.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I believe that too Lainey!!!

            • missusmc says:

              Agreed. I think Bravo’s editors are absolutely amazing this season. When Tamra was standing outside the limo listening to Alexis say “Do I have to commit suicide for someone to take me seriously?” you couldn’t even see the light bulb go off over Tamra’s head! To Tamra, suicide story=sympathy, and she surely got the idea then and there.

    • Powell says:

      Your friend went thru a lot as a kid & young adult but didn’t let those circumstances take her down the wrong path. She is strong. She is a survivor. I hope she is proud of all she has accomplished & proud that she raised great kids.

  17. Cartwheels says:

    California35 and Powell, thanks for your replies.

    I don’t have an issue with Tamra talking about her parents if that is what really happen and if it catartic for her , just to show us how much she has improved. My problem is when she uses it to excuse her behavior and has done nothing to change it.
    I know Bethenny talked a lot about her mother, but she did mention that one of the things that haunted her most was that her mom had a revolving door of guys because she was not financially independent and she promised herself that she would change that and break that circle, which she did. She might had moaned and whined about it but she did somethingto change it. Same with Ramona, she saw the abuse her mother endured at her father’s hands and how she couldn’t leave because she was not financially independent and she promised herself that she would never go through the same, she changed it. Their childhood experiences were not the best but they used that as the fuel to their motivation.

    Tamra seems to think that the fact her parents didn’t tell her I love you very much is the perfect excuse to become a bully? what? My mother was raised by a father that was a tirant and never showed any of his kids any affection and my mother is the not sweetest person there is , but her strenght and determination, her perseverance and indomitable spirit , which she also inherit from her father, have shaped her and by extension us. My parents dis not need to tell me all the time that they love me, they show it to me every single day with their actions, with the memories of a childhood filled loving memories and with lessons in life. We didn’t have much and the words “I love you” were not very frequent but I can tell you that I wuldn’t trade places with the richest person out there. My parents were not perfect and I am sure that if I asked them, there would be many things they would had like to change but they were perfect to me and that is all that I remember and cherish.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Bravo Cartwheels! I don’t think my father or mother ever said I love you to me once in my life, but at the same time, I knew I was wanted and loved. My dad kissed me twice in my life – the first time is when he had to leave me in the hospital when I had my tonsils out at age 10 and the other time was at the alter when he gave me in marriage.

      In my home, I have always told my children I love them, I hug and kiss them constantly, but they have not been perfect children. They have had to learn hard lessons from their actions and choices, but they never blamed me for making them and have come out on the other side better people.

      I’m so tired of the “it’s not my fault; I had a bad childhood.” Once you reach a certain age, you, and only you, have to take responsibility for your actions. Tamra passed that age years ago. Her it’s too little, too late excuses don’t wash with me. She’s had plenty of time to make amends for them but continues to this day to be a very mean person through her actions and words. She can say anything she wants and point as many fingers as she can, only her actions from here on out will change my mind. From what I can see, I don’t give her much of a chance for breaking that cycle.

      Cartwheel – great examples of using Bethenny and Ramona and their upbringing. You can be a life-long victim or change for the better, So far Tamra, you choose to be a victim.

      • T-Rex says:

        Again not watching the show but this to me is Bravo’s attempt to “rehabilitate” TrailerTrashTrampySue since most folks dislike her. I hope the spinoff tanks and tanks badly!! She is despicable, and trying to lay blame on her mother on national TV is just another in her long line of poor life decisions.

      • chismosa says:

        Very well said and I applaud Ramona especially for finding a man who seems to be a great husband (must we believe he cheats ? Not sure), a seemingly splendid father, and just great all around partner for life. Ramona really went above and beyond to not repeat the cycle of her mom.

        Sometimes I wonder how my mom {who grew up without her mother and a kind of philander-ish-y father (latin men!), who then remarried an evil stepmother}, had the sense to find my dad! Almost 50 years now. How do some stop the repeat of cycles and others continue I’ll never get. I should have continued my psychology electives lol.

        IMHO Bethenny fell trap to her personality flaws. (Her way or the highway, use/drop people as needed/ rush of initial romance-hope it would be end-all-be-all). Which she has not sorted through and hopefully will one day, SOLO, without cameras, in therapy. If she wants to of course.

        • Nancy says:

          Nature vs nurture. Many say your personality is determined when one is very young.

          • chismosa says:

            Right I always read that a person’s essential personality is formed my the time they’re around 5 ( that’s why you should space out kids appropriately — if you so desire of course— because kids 6+ years apart make the younger one an ‘only’, I’ve read a lot on that)

            So I guess I am happy my mother’s inner personality helped her through.

    • missusmc says:

      Bethenny and Ramona and Tamra all approached these shows claiming to come from a place of honesty. They have claimed to have been open books and call out their castmates for not being authentic enough. Bethenny and Ramona have been very consistent with their stories (I know Radar Online may refute Bethenny’s claims, but I still find her stories to be somewhat believable). At no point during Tamra’s real housewives experience has she ever said anything about being suicidal in the past. She has mentioned getting pregnant at a younger age, and her mother had endured a lot, but as far as her own past? Nothing. She was insistent on pointing out Gretchen and Vicki’s infidelities, and Alexis’ husband’s business issues, and demanded they be upfront and honest, and claimed that she has always been completely authentic, but we’ve never, ever heard anything close to this. Perhaps I am too cynical, but I think she is watching the other housewives and learning that the sympathetic characters have longevity, and she’s noticing all the backlash against her, so she’s trying to save face. Also, Gretchen was desperate enough to try to be Tamra’s friend, but Alexis won’t. So Tamra has to have another angle in making up with her. She’s a calculating, conniving witch.

      • Cartwheels says:

        That is true. Bethenny said that she had no relationship with her parents since she was on the Martha Steward Apprentice and they didn’t even know that the show will make it to air, and the mother has confirmed that they hadn’t spoken in the last 15 years. Ramona has been elocuent about her relationship with her father.
        Kim Z is another one who strikes me as just having a problem recently to create some story line and Tamra is the worst because IIRC, she said in one of the first seasons she was in that she wanted her mom to have a facelift to reward her for being such a great mom but now has an issue with her and her anger comes from her parents? I am just not buying it.

      • Catseye says:

        “She’s a calculating, conniving witch.” I completely agree.

      I am lucky to have gotten new puppies while the older dogs were around. The puppies would just follow them outside and potty train them for me.

  22. Rebecca says:

    First of all, I didn’t watch that horrible show.

    Second of all – Gretchen is too stupid to procreate. (Please lord, think of the future here….)

    Third and last – I come from a community where suicide truly is tried by most of the teenagers there. A couple will succeed every couple of years. It immediately saps the mortality out of the kids and they try to take their own lives too. IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU CAUSE TO BECOME CRUEL.

    I truly hate seeing that witch on tv. She’s the worst of the worst. The fact that Andy keeps here there makes him more of a pig in my eyes. Bravo is the continuation of the decline of western civilization. I actually watched The Borgias last night instead of RHOC. As much of a thug family as they were, it is STILL better tv than Tamra.

  23. It's not reality says:

    Hi everyone longtime lurker and infrequent poster, I just wanted to say that I have not liked Tamara’s actions since the beginning, but last night she really crossed the line in my book. I grew up in a very dysfunctional and abusive home. My father was a alcoholic and my mother has now been instatutionalized for her many mental problems. That being said I would never dream of causing anyone any kind of pain because I more then any know how that feels like . Tamara using her pain( I believe everyone’s pain is relative to them) as an excuse for her behavior is inexcusable. I also think that some things you may never get over, but you can use them to better yourself. My sister left our house at 14 and had a child at 15. The father was an abusive and cheating a**.She left him and worked nights to finish highschool. Then she got her bachelors in business management and her masters in physiology. She now helps other troubled youth working for tykes and teens. My sister is an empowering woman because she could have given up and been just another stastic. The person who chose Tamara as a keynote speaker really did not care about empowerment but about publicity. I also wanted to say congrats Lulu and to Diva I thought about you yesterday and lit a candle for your family at morning mass. ( Desclaimer all mistakes are the IPhone’s and not at all mine.

        What a great comment! Congratulations to your sister, a real example that whatever you chose to be and focus your energy and go for it, you can reach it and be an inspiring person and not just blaming others for your outcome as an adult. Tamra is too far away to take responsibility for her own choices and actions. Thanks for sharing!

      APPLAUSE FOR YOUR POST! I have posted a few times now that TrailerTrashTrampySue has finally crossed that line of going “too far” to try to justify her DISGUSTING behavior. Oh and I blame my typos on the fact my fingers are dyslexic

      • 2Stupid says:

        Please post more often. I feel the same way about anyone asking Trashra to speak about anything. It is the same when a university asked JZ to speak. Ugggh. Kudos to your sister for making things happen for herself. We all have the ability to make something of our time on this earth, it just depends on how much sacrifice you want and the amount of drive. It is different for everyone, but don’t blame it on the circumstances you grew up. You should let that challenge you to be better.

    • melthehound says:

  24. Donna says:

    I haven’t been watching the show. I admit I stopped at couple times while do drive-by channel surfing. I’m confused, Eons ago when I watched, when Tamara was an adult married/divorced her father left her mother for her mother’s best friend and that is why she is messed up. Didn’t she reconcile with her father on TV? So now I learn she threw her mother under the bus. ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    • lillybee says:

      She will throw anyone under the bus to excuse her awful behavior.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Tamra is doing some serious damage control but it ain’t workin’!! After she threw Alexis out of the dumb gym party she was getting slammed on twitter from people calling her mean and nasty-she kept isn’t saying-keep watching! Like we were all going to understand Tamra and her bitchy ways!! I think her grand plan is NOT working b/c people are going to her old blog on Bravo to tell her that they are not impressed with her speech.

      • mrs peabody says:

        Since this season has already been filmed I’m assuming they are refilming part of it and trying to clean up her image. It’s not working for me. I also don’t like the new girl, she’s seems like a trouble maker and I’m not impressed with her pop head of a mother. Why would anyone ask Tamara to be a keynote speaker at something for women is beyond me, don’t they watch this show. The only time Tamara should be a keynote speaker is at a convention of Bully’s. Tamara is mean because she likes being mean, it’s how she gets attention. It’s as simple as that.

  25. It's not reality says:

    So I think that a lot of people are on Vickie’s side in the whole Broke coming over thing, but I can see the other side also. Allegedly Broke is the one who leaked the news about Briana’s pregnancy and elopement. I think that they just could not say that on the show. I would not want that person around my child also and would not understand my mother wanting him in her life.Also the home that was shown on the show as being Broke home is really Vickie’s is it not. Even my phone knows he is broke since it changed his name every time, I decided to just leave it.

    • it’s not reality….. I spit my milk out last night when I saw BROKES hair dye job…. OMG… and I notice he has also gained some weight …CHUNKY MONKEY INDEED… lol
      I can’t for the life of me understand what Vickie sees in him…. he’s got that creepy ” VOICE” going in when he talks to her…I envision him snapping one day…..
      Tamra… just no words… mr ford still says that EDWINA is gay…. and he can’t stand HEATHER… says Alexis is harmless…. Lydia… she needs to smoke a jay…. lol
      I don’t see any chillens in Gretchens future either…. she should just stick to playing mommie to slade……
      thank you for your kinds words also ….appreciate the candle lighting at Mass…big hugs…

      The Married show…. just not really feeling it..not what I thought it would be… and NO MORE TUB SCENES,., DAMN….
      I guess it’s OWN tv tonite… give that new show a look… looks almost soap opera-ish… the commercial I saw…bad acting…so may not cut it with me..
      DEADLIEST CATCH TONITE… White Buffalo music is featured tonite…they also had their music on SONS OF ANARCHY this past season…

      are we still on babywatch 2013 ???????

      • Catseye says:

        I read elsewhere that Eddie is known to be bi-sexual and had an affair with some professor at a college in O.C. I completely believe it, considering he was “adopted” by an older man as a nearly grown man. I also get a HUGE gay vibe from Terry.

        • T-Rex says:

          As someone that just watched the HBO Movie at Liberace, men adopting grown adults as their “children” was an easy way for gay lovers to establish rights to medical decisions, inheritance laws etc.so as to keep their “secret” but yet making sure that their lover would not have any legal issues should they pass away, etc. My cousin the lawyer looked this up for me and said it’s actually a lot more common then I thought.

            T-Rex I DVRd it so I’ll watch it this weekend. I’m looking forward to it.

            • T-Rex says:

              It was REALLY REALLY good, Michael Douglas is awesome! Matt Damon too, but truly as someone who had actually seen a Liberace on television (my grandmother LOVED him) any time he was on we had to watch him, and he did Liberace justice.

              • Powell says:

                I remember seeing Liberace on talk shows. I believe it was closer to the yrs before his death. I’ve also seen taped black & white red carpet events, maybe Oscars when the studio.made him take women as his date. I always liked him. He seemed like such a caring person & he loved his mom.

                • Laineylainey says:

                  I made my husband go with me to a Liberace concert at the Greek Ampitheater in L.A. In the 80s It was wonderful. He was so funny, talented, and really respected his audience…talk about BLING!

                • chismosa says:

                  Wow so NOT what I’ve read with regards to the film, I’ve read he was very manipulative (making his boytoy have plastic surgery to look like him, dropping the boytoy for a younger specimen), and kind of menacing.
                  I didn’t know he was so sweet – good to know

        • missusmc says:

          I seriously wouldn’t be shocked if all the men came out of the closet. Eddie, terry, Doug- they all send off gay vibes!

        Diva I didn’t know Mr. Ford watched OC. Tell him I LOL at Edwina.

        I shall be watching “The Haves and the Have Nots” on OWN tonight. Tyler Perry’s new comedy is also on OWN tomorrow night. He and Oprah were on the radio this morn. It was Tyler’s idea to Oprah to do something especially for OWN. She said they talked about it when she was going thru problems w/OWN. I suppose that’s when she fired the previous President & the low ratings

    • mrs peabody says:

      I wondered about that home too but I thought Vicki had a condo he was living in not an actual house. Watching them last night gave me the creeps, he seemed very angry to me and controlling. I think he knows she loves him and uses that to his advantage, like do what I say or I’m leaving. What in the he!! is wrong with her? OPEN your eyes Vicki and RUN!

      • Donna says:

        The more people criticize “broke” to her, the more she is going to blindly latch on to him. They should give him enough rope to hang himself.

    • Powell says:

      It’s not reality I totally understand where Brianna & Ryan are coming from. If it were my mom I would be saying the same things but Vicki is a grown azz woman, it is her home & she can have whoever she wants in her home. Brianna is emotionally blackmailing Vicki by saying they will move out. If Vicki truly is in love, yuck, w/Brooks & wants him in her life she needs to tell Brianna & Ryan that is what she is going to do. She needs to also tell them she has heard their objections, is glad that they love her enough to look out for her but it’s her decision & if they accept her decision they are welcomed to continue living w/her, that she will tell them when Brooks is coming over & she will respect their wishes & not have Brooks around their son. But if they can’t respect her decision they are welcomed to move out.
      I don’t like Ryan telling Vicki’s brother that he is the nan if the house & Brooks is not welcomed. And when did Ryan’s name get put on the deed?

        I kinda thought that’s what she was attempting to do in the episode where the two of them, Ryan and Vicki were installing the baby car seat. He was rather rude and disrespectful of her, just ignoring what she was saying and walking back into HER house, without saying a word.

        • iceNfire says:

          It doesn’t matter if Brianna and her family stays in vicky’s house or moves out….Icky will be miserable either way.

  26. djprincessc says:

    I just want to know why after being on the show for so many seasons why Tamara is just revealing this now? AHA sympathy!! They really think viewers are stupid. And last nights episode was probably one of the most boring episodes ever! They need to recast, keep Vicki and Alexis bring back Jeana and hire 2 or 3 new women that bring life to the show. Pretty simple.

    • mrs peabody says:

      It wasn’t a boring as last week when it was mainly Heather, that was boring. I wish that woman would take that stick out of her behind and relax.

      • djprincessc says:

        I thought it was wayyyy more boring than last week. At least Heathers kids are gorgeous and Terry makes jokes which piss her off so it amuses me. Tamara has Eddie. There was too much of her last night. By the end of the episode I wasn’t even paying attention.

        • mrs peabody says:

          there’s always too much of Tamara even if she is only in one scene….lol. I don’t like Heather myself but I do enjoy watching her husband tease her and make her mad.

    As you have noticed in my posts today I am so upset about this TrailerTrashTrampySue issue, especially if she said she was depressed enough to contemplate suicide. This is just a topic that I do not take lightly! I have personally experienced suicides from friends and family members, more than I would like to count and this is NOT something someone should use as a platform to EXCUSE their behaviour. Again, I don’t how it was presented since I did not watch, but Bravo seriously SHAME ON YOU for airing this as a way to rehabilitate her sh*tty reputation. A reputation that TrailerTrashTrampySue has been LOUD AND PROUD about. She has SHOUTED on many occasions on this show how “authentic” she is and how she OWNS her behaviour, she doesn’t ever apologize for that behaviour. Oh and NO ONE, NO ONE heard her EVER speak about this issue until now, bullsh*te! In most of the suicides that happened to folks I knew, almost 80% had attempted before they succeeded, and those that hadn’t attempted definitely left clues, some we picked up on, and some we clearly did not, not a single one did it “surprise us”. We drove folks to be “Baker acted”(involuntary commitment) but sadly they were released within 72 hours, the mental health issues in this country really do suck, and those with the will to end their life, will succeed since family and friends have not many ways to commit them. I hope there is a HUGE backlash against Bravo and especially TrailerTrashTrampySue for USING an Important issue that affects so many to rehabilitate her reputation, I say we call for a BOYCOTT to her new show!

    • Cartwheels says:

      I definitely will not be watching her wedding show.
      I despise Tamra so bad that I would rather watch Ginger lick JZ”s nostrils for an hour instead of watching anything that would give ratings to this awful human being, and that says a lot, 🙂

    • djprincessc says:

      Not watching her new show either. Why anyone would want to see a woman in her 40’s marry for a 3rd time like its a fairytale is beyond what my little bird brain can comprehend. I only watched the first season of Kims show and it was after they had already aired, not every housewife needs a fairytale spin off. Andy is delusional.

      • Powell says:

        DJP you are so right. I like Kandi but I hope she doesn’t get a wedding spin off. They need to just have her wedding on ATL.

    • Nancy says:

      It was as disgusting as “Taylor’s” speech at a domestic violence meeting.
      (I too have hx of suicide in my family.)

      • T-Rex says:

        Nancy and also as a nurse(my mother is a retired nurse) you have had to also deal with this on a professional level, and to me it is the ultimate betrayal to ones family and loved ones, a completely selfish act, in my opinion. Seriously, TrailerTrashTrampySue your CHILDREN are going to see this and why would you ever traumatize your children by stating you attempted to kill yourself, leaving them motherless just to enhance your 15 minutes of famewhoring,

        • Powell says:

          T-Rex she doesn’t care that her kids will see this one day.

        • Nancy says:

          Hi T-Rex,
          I don’t see it like that at all. I think my mother took her own life as she thought my sister
          and I would have a better life without her as she was hospitalized over and over again.
          I think it was a selfless act. When you are that depressed all logic goes out the window
          so I have never blamed her. I do think what could have been but I can’t miss something
          that I’ve never had as I only have a few memories of her.

          • T-Rex says:

            (({{{{{{{{{{{{Hugs to you Nancy}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

            • Nancy says:

              Thanks. It’s all good as our father made up for it.
              Only wished he lived longer than 68.

          • djprincessc says:

            Nancy you are such a selfless and forgiving person. I can’t say I’d be as forgiving as you. Xoxoxo 🙂

            • Nancy says:

              Hi dj,
              When you are that depressed you don’t see a way out of it esp back then as the treatment was very limited.

              • djprincessc says:

                I agree, only the person who does it knows why they do it. I try not to judge as i have suffered from depression myself, I could never do that but I can understand how someone would thinking they have nothing left. I would be extremely hard for me if a parent did it though.

                • Nancy says:

                  (((dj))) You should call me when you get depressed as I suffer from it too.

                  • djprincessc says:

                    Awww Nancy!! I’m hear! You can always call me, you have my email right?? I don’t get it as bad as I used to. One thing I learned was to just let myself feel the way I’m feeling and that it is OK. A lot of people fight it but I learned its better to allow yourself to feel all the emotions. It runs in my family.

          • Cartwheels says:


        • Cartwheels says:

          Can you imagine what Tamra’s children would have to say about her?

          Now I would like to hear anybody say that children should never speak about their parents when they have a mother like Tamra who doesn’t think one second to humiliate her children by being such an awful human being. I think that hind sight Simon is the happiest man on earth,

      • Powell says:

        Nancy I’m sorry you’ve had suicide in your family.

      • Catseye says:

        Right! The only thing missing was Eddie watching in the audience.

    • Powell says:

      T-Rex I’m sorry that you have loved ones that have suffered from depression & attempted suicide. You’re right it is sad that Bravo let Tamra do this to explain away her nastiness. I really don’t believe she’s suffered w/depression in the past. I really don’t. When Alexis was in the limo saying her doc put her on meds Tamra went back to her party and laughed. If Alexis was put on meds she was depressed. If Tamra suffered w/this her hearing Alexis’ words should have brought her back to that place where she said she was depressed & feeling enough pain to want to take her own life. I believe Tamra’s words on WWHL when she said she was just doing her job. This new storyline is Bravo’s attempt to get viewers to watch her wedding spinoff. I will not be watching it.

      • T-Rex says:

        I also think that the Fame-Whore that is one TrailerTrashTrampySue would have tried in vain to “steal” some of ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealerLypsMcgee’s publicity by announcing that she too had contemplated suicide, or was depressed etc. during the Russell issues. Nope not a word, did she during this time claim that she was physically and mentally abused by Simon, you betcha, she is a disgusting human being

      • Catseye says:

        That’s right about Alexis. She couldn’t wait to run back to tell the other 2 Witches of O.C., so they could all laugh and mock her. That’s when Heather said her famous line about “rich girl problems.” That backfired on HER big time.

        • T-Rex says:

          Yeppers, again usually here we don’t have an almost 100% across the board dislike for a HW behaviour and well TrailerTrashTrampySUe, congratulations you have actually won that DIS – HONOR

      • mrs peabody says:

        I forgot about that…….I don’t understand why someone that was so depressed that she thought about suicide would ever make fun of someone else who was depressed, you’d think she would know how she felt.

      • djprincessc says:

        + a million Powell!!

    • TexasTart says:

      I second the motion to BOYCOTT the bitch!

    • chismosa says:

      I feel for you TRex, so sorry you have to live through this trash talking about it.

      Like all the faux “bullying” storylines when there are 12 year olds hanging themselves every week.

  28. Powell says:

    I wonder how much Lulu baby #2 will weigh? I say 7lbs 7oz.

  29. Powell says:

    Starting at 7pm est HLN will interview the JodiArias jury.

    • kit9 says:

      Jane’s show was a waste…they didn’t let the juror speak much and interrupted her but Dr. Drew’s show was great, had two for the full hour. It was fascinating.

  30. TexasTart says:

  31. Powell says:

    Please cross your fingers for me that I don’t lose power. It’s storming & too many good shows come on tonight for me to lose power.

  32. Powell says:

    I just went to the basement to dvr The Real Husbands of Hollywood & the reunion tonight.

  33. Nancy says:

    Go LA Kings!!!!! 🙂

  34. AZGirl says:

    Picture of Pepper. Hope the link works.

  35. boston02127 says:

    Is anyone watching The Haves and the Have Nots?

  36. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Tamra said today on twitter that she came out with the suicide talk b/c her oldest son is struggling with depression.

    @TamraBarney: @tonyreverditto @BravoAndy my oldest son! He is struggling with depression 😦

    • plainviewsue says:

      This piece of sh*t mother tweets that her son is suffering from depression. I am assuming she is talking about Ryan.

      I don’t believe a word of what she said.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Somebody told her that she threw and son and mother under the bus…how long will it be till she starts telling people to F off?? She and Brandi react to negative tweets the exact same way!!!!

      • Nancy says:

        I’d be depressed too if my mother was Tamra.

    • Vegas Chick says:

      Hey everyone. Hope that you are all doing good. Busy, busy… packing, moving, ugh!

      I did watch OC last night and pretty well convinced that Tampra is on a fan-gathering campaign after all the backlash that she has received on the blogs…particularly Bravo’s. Most peeps said that she needed anger management therapy so why not turn it into a storyline and drag her mother into it. Gawd! That was an awful ‘performance.’

      What really struck me is that she has been single more than married. 1st lasted a short time and she was only married to Simon for 3 years. Good Luck Eddie! Something tells me he knows that it isn’t going to work so he’s using her for the TV exposure and will dump her when OC gets cancelled. Think she’s a biatch now??? LOL

  37. boston02127 says:

    Well, The new show The Haves and Have Nots is kind of soap opera-ish. Seems like it was taped years ago. It has only been on for a half hour and ehhh.

    • agree boston… THIS OWN SHOW SUCKS… so many commercials and FORCED acting… changing channels…UGH UGH UGH….

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I watched as well only because it was Oprah’s network and I thought surely she wouldn’t put a piece of junk on the air . . . I was wrong. Poorly written, poorly acted, poorly everything. Won’t waste anymore time on it. Now I know why her network is sinking.

  38. iceNfire says:

    Did anyone watch Brain Games on Fox? It’s Really interesting…maybe On Demand?

  39. chismosa says:

    The Manzos BFF Bernie Kerik was just released home to Franklin Lakes. They can hang with all their German shepherds again. Lol

  40. Nancy says:

    OMG that was the longest hour of my life.
    LA Kings WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ladebra says:

      Happy for you😊 and happy for the Kings😊 so now we wait for Redwings and Blackhawks? But not tonight, off to bed with me.

      • Nancy says:

        It would be better for the Kings if the Redwings win as we would get home ice but I have a very good friend that lives in Chicago and is a fan so I will have to root for the Blackhawks.

  41. ladebra says:

    Let’s see that happy face Nancy!

  42. lillybee says:

    I just watch the Little Couple. It made me teary. They finally met their new son in China and are in the process of bringing him home. The boy is adorable.

  43. Nancy says:

    Night, night all. I’ll be gone all day tomorrow as my sister is having heart surgery in the
    morning. I’m sure everything will go as planned.

    Lulu I’ll be thinking about you. 🙂
