Real Housewives of Orange County

***WARNING*** This episode is predominately about 5 girls whooping it up in Puerto Vallarta for a bachelorette party.  It’s filled with drinking, dancing and stripping.  It is not for the faint of heart.  There is a lot of talk about men’s genitalia.  It culminates in a petting zoo scene featuring a couple of guys whose life ambition is to make us all physically ill. Read the blog of this episode at your own risk.  Keep in mind that once you read things – You cannot unread them – It’s just not possible. No amount of bleach will help!  The blogger promises to do her best to be as delicate as possible – but sometimes you just have to call a “dildo” a “dildo.”  You have been warned…

Last week, we left our two delicate flowers named Heather and Gretchen in a limo crying their eyes out about how they were left behind as orphans on the streets of Mexico.  Meanwhile, Tamra, Vicki and Lydia are literally dancing through those same scary streets of Puerto Vallarta.

As Gretchen and Heather continue to commiserate in the limo about how Vicki always plays by her own rules – Footage of Tamra squatting while dancing on top of the bar at “Andales” is shown… Some icky guy is bending his head backwards to within inches from her “down there” region as I reach for the “Extra Strength – Tums.”  It’s going to be a long night. The thing is that these girls are wearing flashy blinking bow headbands that light up – So really, can any of us take them too seriously?  These are girls who clearly just want to have fun. The stick in the muds are still in the limo whining about not knowing where the others are and lamenting that they were left behind. If you remember, last episode Vicki mentioned at least 84 times that she wanted to take the girls to “Andales.”  Anyone with half a brain would know that’s exactly where they went, no?  Since she’s so freakin’ mad at Vicki for leaving them there, Gretchen decides to get back at her by telling Heather all about her discussion with Lauri.  Gretchen looks right at the camera as if to make sure the camera guy knew that what she was about to say was important and that they were “rolling tape.”  Gosh, there are only two of you in this limo, Gretch – I’m sure the camera guy has no problem figuring out where to point his camera.  But then again, perhaps he was busy on his phone trying to get directions to “Andales” because certainly he knew he would be having way more fun there at this point.  The camera guy was probably still cranky at the other camera crew for beating him in their rock/paper/scissors/lizard/Spock throw down that won them the job of following the fun girls.  Alas, he was stuck with the Debbie Downers group.  Gretchen tells Heather that Vicki has been lying and cheating on Don for many years and that Lauri was privy to it all.  In her talking head, Heather wonders why Gretchen is telling her all of this information.  Is it because she’s mad at Vicki and wants to punish her?  Heather doesn’t really want to know about it.  Heather tells Gretchen to her face, “They’re divorced… Who cares?” Gretchen gets all indignant and tells Heather that maybe she doesn’t care but that Gretchen sure does because Vicki had accused Gretchen of cheating on her dying fiancé while Vicki was simultaneously cheating on Don.  So yes, she cares.  Gretchen says Vicki cries then everyone feels bad for her – but she’s thinks she’s full of crap.  Gretchen does a disgusting hand gesture – I really wish she wouldn’t do that.  But, money can’t buy you class.

The fun girls are having fun dancing and doing creative boob shots at “Adales.”  Tamra is surprised that Lydia has been keeping up with them.  I’m sure Tamra thought that Lydia was going to be the stick in the mud on this trip.  Lydia says, “We’re in Mexico…Yay Ooo!”  Actually, she sounded more like the yodeling girl from the Swiss Miss Chocolate Cocoa box than an adult out on the town whooping it up – but at least she tried.

Gretchen and Heather, the Martyrs, decide to get a cab back to the hotel even though the others “left us on a street corner in Mexico” because they were unsure how late at night the taxis ran.  Okay, Puhleeze!  1) You were safely in a limo in front of the highfalutin upscale restaurant located right next to an art gallery that Heather suggested; 2) You knew where the others were going – you just chose not to meet them there; 3) You’ve been to Puerto Vallarta  several times so you must know your way around by now; and, 4) You are in a freakin’ limo whose job it is to take you wherever you guys want to go – He could have taken you back to the hotel and then he could have driven back to pick up the others – Isn’t that what they’re paid to do? Give me a break.  They hail a cab and seem to be somewhat confused that it’s a taxi van – and momentarily Gretchen seems to not understand how to open the door.  Heather explains that the doors slide open like a minivan.  For some reason this amuses me. Gretchen mutters that the others are acting like they don’t give a rat’s ass about what they did to them.  I bet they don’t give a “wrath of furry’s” ass, either. Tamra dancing on taxi The fun girls are continuing to dance in the streets and on top of taxicabs. Wouldn’t it have been funny if they had danced on top of the taxivan that Gretchen and Heather were in?  Tamra declares that there is no one better to party with than Vicki.

Gretchen and Heather arrive back at their palatial, cavernous and empty bachelorette hotel suite.  They talk about what they’re going to say to the others about the situation. Heather says that Tamra had a great time even though their feelings were hurt and that maybe it’s a conversation for another time.  There’s really no good reason why they were left behind – Well, other than the fact you both said you wanted to make an early night of it.  Even though they were wronged so severely, they were worried about the wellbeing of the others.  Really?  If you were really that worried – You would have taken the limo and gone looking for them.  Heather doesn’t want to make a big deal about it – but Gretchen clearly does.

It is 2:00 AM in the morning and Lydia is so tired.  Tamra knows that Heather is not going to be excited about this.  As the fun girls are talking in the limo on their way to the hotel – Vicki tries to reason that they didn’t want to purposefully hurt their feelings.  She turns to Lydia and says, “I think you asked if they wanted come and they said no, right?”  Lydia looks at Vicki as if she was an alien and says, “No.” Vicki outright asks, “So, who are we blaming?” Tamra immediately says, “You.”  Lydia chimes in a beat later, “You.”  Vicki does not want them to blame her because she’s already in trouble all the time.  They decide they know the others will be upset, but it’s fine – they’ll just apologize. After all, they didn’t want to come anyway – and so the stick in the muds did what they wanted and the fun girls did what they wanted.  Surely, it’s a win/win, no?  lolol… Ummm… No!   Tamra tells us that it was never her intention to ditch Gretchen and Heather – but at that moment she was so drunk that she really didn’t care.

They get to the hotel, but they can barely unfold themselves to get out of the limo they’re so drunk.  For some reason, they all seem to be barefooted.  They’re not looking forward to apologizing at 2:00 AM.  As they enter the door, Vicki is saying, “Let the drama begin” It’s way too funny to Vicki that Gretchen and Heather missed out on a good party and that Gretchen specifically missed out on having fun with Tamra. For some reason, they feel compelled to knock on Heather’s door.  As they enter the room they’re saying they’re sorry.  “Well, coming in with your sparkly ears doesn’t really make me feel a lot better.” It took Tamra all of 2 seconds to throw Vicki under the bus and she tells Heather that it was all Vicki’s idea.  However, it was the logistics that were throwing Heather off.  When they originally were leaving the restaurant, they were all in the bathroom at the same time.  She was asked how long she stayed in the restroom – and Heather responded that it wasn’t long at all – it was only long enough for her to “powder her nose” and that her nose surely isn’t that big.

Apology with laughterGretchen pokes her nicely powdered nose into the doorway and snottily says, “It looks like you had fun, Vicki.”  She was assured that they indeed, had fun.  She was told that Tamra danced on a taxicab.  The problem with this situation is that these girls are all drunk and everything is funny to them at that moment.  Gretchen is trying to reason with the fun girls.  “I’m glad you think it’s funny… When you left the restaurant you weren’t drunk so I don’t understand,” accuses Gretchen.  Tamra is just so danged drunk she’s can’t help but laugh.  Gretchen tells Tamra that she should go get the suitcase full of stuff that she brought.  Gretchen is mad this all seems so funny to them. She tells them it really hurt her feelings.  Tamra says that she’s sorry.  Gretchen tells Tamra that she doesn’t know why the f*** would she just run off like that.  Tamra instinctively blames someone else and immediately points at Vicki.  Gretchen stomps off saying that she should have f***’n known. Tamra admits that it was stupid.  Heather thinks it was thoughtless and doesn’t understand why after time had elapsed that the fun girls didn’t come back and look for them.

The fun girls leave and go to Tamra’s room.  Vicki thinks that it put Gretchen over the top because Tamra couldn’t stop herself from laughing the whole time they were talking to Heather and Gretchen.  Tamra tells Vicki she’s better off without her because the very first time she hangs out and has fun with her she gets in trouble.  Vicki wonders if Tamra ever actually said that she was sorry to Gretchen.  She didn’t – and so Vicki tells Tamra she screwed up and that Vicki’s “plan worked.”  Lydia tells Vicki that she’s evil.  Vicki tries to convince her that really, she’s the nicest person ever but that she just shouldn’t ever cross her.  Vicki and Lydia get up to leave to go to their rooms.  After they’re gone, Tamra notices a lil sprinkle mark was left on the comforter of her bed.  As Vicki and Lydia walk through the door – you see a little wet stain on the back of Vicki’s skirt. Someone must have drunk a little too much and laughed a little too hard thus leaking a “wee” bit. Bravo did not need to show this to us.  Really, they didn’t.  Hey Tamra, I hear Kim Richards has a pillow to go with that comforter!

The next morning, Gretchen, Tamra, Heather and Lydia meet in the hotel lobby.  Gretchen, our cruise director, chirps to the girls, “Good morning, girls!”  She tells them they’re going to go check out the town and get some culture in while they’re there.” Tamra has decided she is just going to do whatever the heck Gretchen wants her to do for the rest of the trip.  Vicki comes down and joins the team.  Gretchen very sarcastically thanks Vicki for showing up this morning.  Vicki gleefully says, “You’re welcome” and continues to walk out the lobby door and into the waiting limo, leaving the rest of the girls in her dust.  Gretchen assures us that she is just going to be a “bigger person and move on.”  Do you believe her?  Nope, me neither.  They make Tamra put on her “Bride to Be” sash.  Hector is their tour guide for the day.  They suddenly all have Champaign flutes in their hands – their straws were shaped like a man’s hangie down thingie.  As they’re touring around, the tour guide is pointing out different sights in the city.  He points out a famous seahorse sculpture.  It turns out that’s where they bought the glowing bow headbands the night before.  Lydia, the post stirrer, asks if they’re all okay with what happened last night. Heather says she felt really sad that they had been left behind but that in the spirit of having a fun weekend that they’re just going to move on.  Gretchen concurs.  Lydia is not convinced all has been forgiven – She thinks they still have some issues and they should talk about it and that they’re all living in some kind of weird purgatory right now.  She seems to want to handle any issues directly so they can all get over it.  Hector takes our limo of fun-loving girls to a bull ring.  Yes, cuz nothing says “Fun, bachelorette party” like a good bullfight.  As they walk into the arena, they are the only people in the entire place.  There is a very, very young bull in the middle of the bullring.  They decide for some inexplicable reason to name the bull.  Tamra decides he should be called “Navarro” since it was Eddie’s biological last name before he was adopted. The matador walks out and the women started making comments about his tight butt.  Gretchen doesn’t want to watch.  Vicki assures her that everyone is going to be fine.  Lydia finds it comical that Gretchen picked this as an activity for them to do on a bachelorette weekend.  “No bueno on bachelorette weekend.”  After they all get back into the limo and are on their way to the next fun-filled destination, the fun girls are talking about how much fun they had the previous night and Lydia mentioned that it “made the trip.”  Heather calls out Lydia on what she said, “Did you just say that made the trip?” Heather thinks the comment was rude. Gretchen confirms to Heather that Lydia indeed just said that.  Lydia tells them they keep saying sorry.  Heather says she and Gretchen weren’t a part of that fun – so that it’s a bummer for them.  Vicki says there are two nights – thus implying there is still time to have fun. Heather thinks they’re purposefully pouring salt into their wound.  Under her breath and for Heather’s ears only, Gretchen tells her at least she got an, “I’m sorry” since Gretchen didn’t even get that much.  Lydia does not let Gretchen get away with her passive aggressiveness and tells Gretchen to say whatever she has to say directly to her face.  Lydia says that they screwed up and that they apologized for it.  Gretchen insists she is not trying to make it an issue.  Lydia says, “Gretchen, what do you want me to do – give you my next born child?”  In her talking head, Lydia says that she is so done with Gretchen because she snapped at her so she washes her hands of her. Awww, poor lil Gretchen isn’t getting enough attention from her BFF so she begins to cry. Tamra consoling Gretchen Boo freakin’ hoo. Tamra is there consoling her.  Isn’t that just the cutest lil thang?  Vicki explains to us her perspective that they just wanted to go have fun… and Gretchen and Heather chose to go home and put on their pajamas on and now they’re upset about it.  Gretchen is just hurt.  Gretchen then starts calling Vicki a hypocrite.  She thinks everything Vicki does is hypocritical.  Vicki thinks Gretchen is not using the right word and tells her to pick another one.  Vicki, of course, does not yet know about Gretchen’s lil talk with Lauri.  Vicki tells Gretchen that she knows what it’s like to be left behind and she thinks Gretchen should just get over it.  Gretchen tells Vicki, “You’re such a f****n’ b***.”

Lydia and vicki at poolsideThe girls are down at the pool to chill and have some drinks. Oh, good, Lydia is wearing one of her headbands! (Insert eye roll here.) Gretchen arrives in what can only be described as a bikini harem costume.  She has a silvery sparkly bikini top on that was probably never intended to actually be used as a swimsuit.  I suddenly feel the urge to push her into the pool.  Not sure why, I just do.  I told you before – Never trust me around a pool – Especially if you’re trying too hard to be cool.  Gretchen has in her hand some honking gift bags.  She tells them that the whole point of the trip is to have fun and be silly.  She made custom bags for each one of the girls with their initial on it.  I think it’s odd that she’s giving them to them when they’re out at a pool, but okay.  Vicki wonders if there are any “Gretchen Christine” products in them – and she was not disappointed.  Gretchen then talks about the lip gloss that she included that makes your lips all tingly.  Everyone laughs – and Tamra blurts out that last night they were laughing so hard that Vicki actually peed on the bed.  In her talking head, Vicki owns up to her “leakage” issue.

Tamra wants to go on a walk and Gretchen wants to go with her.  Vicki cannot resist pushing Gretchen’s buttons and tells them to enjoy a walk along the beach, hold hands and sing kumbayah.  Gretchen doesn’t understand why Vicki is so negative.  Tamra tells Vicki that she and Gretchen have been through a lot – and Vicki tells her that she and Tamra have, too.  With tongue firmly in her cheek, Vicki tells them to, “Okay, well, enjoy your bracelets!”  Neither Tamra nor Gretchen is pleased.  They don’t understand why they can’t all be friends. Tamra wants to know why Vicki feels the need to constantly bring up the BFF thing?  Gretchen thinks Vicki always talks down to her.  She’s right, she does. Vicki thinks Gretchen presents herself as a perfect pretty little princess.  Gretchen tells her that is her own insecurity and that she never said she was a princess.  Gretchen walks off before she might, “Kill the b***.” Vicki says she doesn’t have insecurities.  As Gretchen and Tamra walk off, Vicki is incredulous that Gretchen said that to her – since she wouldn’t want to ever be anything like Gretchen for the world.  Tamra tells us that this is not the bachelorette party she was hoping for and she just wants to have some fun, dagnabit!  Tamra, darling, this is your 3rd marriage – and you’ve had multiple “bachelorette parties.”  People even paid money to go to some of them.  Sit yourself down.

Since this was the first time Tamra had a chance to talk about Vicki behind her back to Gretchen, she tells her that Vicki thinks that Gretchen stole Tamra from Vicki.  Tamra continues to say that Vicki said something at the end of the night that really bothers her.  Tamra divulged that Vicki said, “My plan worked.” Tamra explains that she thinks Vicki’s plan was to hurt Gretchen in some way.  Meanwhile, you see Vicki talking to Lydia and Heather about how Gretchen doesn’t respect her and that she doesn’t respect Gretchen, either.  Inexplicably, Vicki says that she thinks Gretchen should look at her like she’s her mentor.  Yes, because I would consider someone who calls me, “Stupid” to be a wonderful mentor for me!  Both Lydia and Heather think that Vicki competes with Gretchen for Tamra’s friendship.  This concept is flabbergasting to Vicki.  Meanwhile, on a beach, far, far away – Gretchen is asking Tamra why it is that when someone starts to get close to her that she pushes them away.  And, cue the tears… (blubber, blubber, blubber). Tamra responds, “I don’t want to be the person that makes excuses for their life” but then she continues on and makes excuses for her life.  She explains that her dad grew up in an abusive family and her mother was raised by someone who was schizophrenic.  Neither of them knew how to love or to express their feelings.  She was raised not to cry or to say “I love you.”  Tamra had her first thought of suicide at 12.  At 21, Tamra was hospitalized when she tried to commit suicide.  Gretchen tells her that she’s so sorry.  Tamra continues to clarify, that when people get close to her she feels like they’re going to leave her.  Gretchen never understood before where Tamra was coming from.  Tamra tells her that no one cares.  Tamra says she’s drawn to people like Vicki because Vicki never gets too deep nor does she ask too many questions.  Or perhaps it’s because she’s fun, who knows?  Then you see Lydia and Vicki as they watch Tamra and Gretchen talking together and Vicki just can’t help but laugh at the situation.  She thinks that Gretchen is just reeling in Tamra again.  Lydia tries to tell her it’s nothing personal.

It is 39 minutes into the episode and we get our first sight of Alexis.  Who?  Lol… She and Jim are going out for dinner.  Alexis tells us that you don’t really need a lot of other stuff in your life if you have a good marriage.  For instance, you don’t even really think about not being at a bachelorette party.  As evidence of her never thinking at all about the bachelorette party to which she was never invited, she proceeds to tell Jim about a telephone call she received from Lydia. Evidently, Lydia told Alexis that she thinks there is going to be strippers at the party and she doesn’t know quite how to handle it when she doesn’t want to stick around for that portion of the party.  Alexis tells her she shouldn’t care if they’re upset that she’s not going to stay for the strippers.  Jim tells Alexis that’s enough of that subject – and he wants to be left out of anything that has to do with “those women.”  The subject changes and they start talking about their house.  Alexis thinks they may eventually grow out of it.  Jim tells her that she’s the only woman he knows that can outgrow a 6,000 square foot home.  Alexis assures him they will when they have 4 children.  Captain Obvious tells her they only have 3 children. (Note:  I actually thought as I was watching it, that this was Alexis’ cute way of telling Jim they’re pregnant… but I was wrong… she was just announcing that she wanted to have a 4th.)  Jim concedes that maybe they will have another child 5 years from now.  Alexis wants one in six months. (Okay, again… is this her saying that she is already 3 months pregnant… Is it that she wants to start trying in 6 months… Or is it that she just doesn’t remember it takes 9 months?)  Even though Alexis was on the screen for less than 5 minutes during this entire episode, she provides us with this week’s installment of, “I kid you not.”  Alexis actually says, “You may be faster, but I will outrun you – You know what that means.” Ummm… no, actually I don’t because it really makes no sense whatsoever.  I’ve gotta laugh because Jim tells her that he doesn’t know what she means, either.  She says it means that she will always win.  This made Jim lose his appetite.  It made me lose mine, too.

Tamra arrives in a tin foil tinsel dress.  Seriously, her dress designer was “Reynolds.” Fortunately, she’s right at home because the hotel room is all decorated with cutsie penis themed decorations.  Heather clutching pearls with rubber glovesNow, while I love a theme as much as the next person… and having some penis paraphernalia at a bachelorette party is required by law, there’s just a certain line between fun and overboard.  But at least it was fun… or at least it started out that way.  They start drinking and having a good time.  There are some gifts on a table and Tamra has to open them one at a time.  The first gift she opens is from Gretchen and they are blinking, “Pecker earrings.”  (Yeah, I can’t believe I just typed that, either.)  They’re having surf and turf for dinner and the chef assures her that it’s erotically no, exotically spiced.  Lydia’s box from Victoria’s Secret contains a French maid outfit.  She also gave Tamra a box of cake mix – that’s devil’s food and is super moist (Insert gratuitous sexual innuendos here).  They are continuously doing shots of some kind.  Heather gives her “Part 1” of her gift – which ends up being a “blinged out whip.”  Tamra and her whipTamra thinks Heather is so confusing.  Heather tells her she just likes to keep Tamra guessing.  Tamra then gets some other stuff from Heather:  A pregnancy test kit; hand sanitizer that’s called, “Maybe you touched your genitals”; and rubber gloves. Heather is really enjoying herself – well, so is Tamra – but this is one of the rare times you see Heather really smiling.

DildoOkay, Vicki’s gift is next… Surprise!  It’s a honkin’ dildo!  And no, I don’t mean a dildo that honks… It’s holy crap on a cracker, HUGE!  Vicki tells Tamra that Briana picked it out for her which surprises Tamra.  Bravo cracks me up at this point – because they blurred out the box and the dildo itself.  However, they did not blur out the foot high penis glass and straw sitting in the foreground of the table.  At least that’s what it looked like to me… After seeing said dildo, Gretchen is shrieking, “What do you do with that?”  “You put it in Eddie’s butt,” explains Vicki.  They all scream in disbelief.  Vicki says that’s what the person at the counter told her.  In her talking head, Tamra, who just can’t help but snipe at people says, “Like mother, like daughter.”  As dinner is winding down, Lydia takes the opportunity to exit, stage left.  She tells everyone that she’s going back to her room to talk to her hubster.  She thanks everyone for being sweet and fun.

Lydia left just in time because the doorbell rings.  “Oy, here we go” says Heather.  Two skanky guys walk in and tell Tamra they have something for her.  Ugh.  KMN (Kill me now)!  Gretchen then starts to sexily say how they left something at the bull ring… something mighty big!  Oh, I get it – they’re dressed as matadors.  I dunno, I think she was trying to be witty, I guess.   As the saying goes, some people are so dumb, that if they threw themselves on the ground, they’d miss.  Honestly, I was distracted by the fact there was no music to go with the strippers.  I guess I was looking for anything to distract me from the strippers themselves.  Tamra dancing on barOne of the guys kneels in front of Tamra and puts his head in between her legs inside her skirt – really far up.  Heather starts spraying “Febreze” around everywhere.  She is already horrified.  So am I. Gretchen pulls him away from Tamra but somehow gets in on the action because the guy then pushes Gretchen’s head towards Tamra’s happy place.  Arms are flailing… things are gyrating… Stars is vomiting… The other guy starts working on Vicki and this is even too much for her.   Stripper sandwichA couple of sandwiches are made including two girls and two guys… and three girls and two guys… and Heather just sits aghast wearing rubber gloves and spraying room freshener around the room.  At one point Vicki says she thinks that she just got pregnant.  These aren’t Vicki’s type of strippers.  Good to know… One of the guys takes the side of Tamra’s head and rubs it against his unmentionable area… and I have to close my eyes… Yikes!

When I open my eyes again, Tamra says that she wants Gretchen to pee on the pregnancy stick right then and there.  Yes, right there in the middle of the kitchen/dining room floor… She spreads her legs and tries really hard but isn’t going to do it.  And finally, because revenge is always better served cold, Heather suggests they let Vicki pee on the stick because evidently she can pee anywhere. Oh, snap!  Gretchen thrusts the pee stick in between Vicki’s legs and up her dress while Tamra tells her to laugh really hard cuz then she’ll pee.  Gretchen and Tamra even tweak Vickie’s brar area to get her to laugh.  Vicki is so not amused.  Okay again… in this scenario, who would actually get the last laugh?  The person peeing… or the idiot that’s holding the stick?

Whew, it’s the next morning (finally).  Tamra says that when she thinks of a bachelorette party she thinks of drinking and penises so she can check that off her list.  They decide to let Gretchen sit at the head of the table because she planned everything.  In a truly genuine sounding voice, Vicki says that was sweet.  Gretchen comes in and can barely even sit in the chair she’s still so wobbly.  Lydia walks in and says it smells really good in there (the chefs were making some great looking food).  Tamra asks Lydia if it smells like “stripper” in there?  Tamra doesn’t understand how Lydia can dance on top of cars and in front of men but doesn’t want to see a stripper. Tamra is glad she had time to bond again with Vicki on this trip but she’s not sure how Gretchen is going to react if they become friends again.  Tamra thinks that because Gretchen doesn’t like Vicki that she’s going to get pissed off at Tamra for being her friend.  Ahhh… 3rd graders… You gotta love ‘em!

I’ve already taken 3 showers… How many more is it going to take to get over this episode?

Newlyweds: The First Year, Episode 6 by BB

These couples are starting to get on my last nerve.  Did any of them sit down and really think this marriage thing through before taking the plunge?  I mean they aren’t young, inexperienced 20-somethings (with the exception of maybe Blair).

Tarz and Tina (Married 4 months, 3 weeks):  Tina is complaining about how much different Tarz is now from when they first met.  All she had to do was walk around and it would turn him on.  Well that was what, four or five years ago? Get real.  He tries to assure her she’s still desirable but there are other factors going on.  She wants him to get away from his computer and for them to “look into each other’s eyes.”  She wants to go out and have fun more, not just sit home and watch movies together.  She thought their first year of marriage would be more lovey, dovey.  Tarz tells her they have responsibilities and they aren’t kids anymore.  Tina feels lonely and neglected.  She’s not used to Tarz working nonstop and her being the stay at home moron since she quit touring.  Tina tells Tarz he can’t be like that when they have a child because she’s not raising a child alone.  Tarz tells Tina he won’t be a workaholic when a child comes, but she’s not convinced and it’s kind of scary for her to think about.  Tarz feels bad that Tina feels lonely.  He fully expected to scale back on work after they got married and he knows he has failed in that expectation.

This next part is silly to me so I’m gonna gloss over it.  The monthly crazy out of the comfort zone thing they are doing this month is a couples’ nude photography session.  Tina thinks it will bring them closer together.  Tina is way over the top with a tacky costume, glitter and everything.  The photographer says no, it should be natural. He thinks it should be just Tarz, Tina and their souls.  Tarz sides with the photographer.  Tina finally gives in and they take photos wearing boob cups (her) and thongs (him and her).  Tina and Tarz seem to make a connection and at the end of the photoshoot, Tarz tells Tina she was the real natural Tina, not the over the top attention seeking sexy Tina.  He prefers the natural Tina (even though she’s still wearing tons of makeup) and she realizes she doesn’t have to try so hard to get his attention.  Tarz finds her more attractive when she’s just herself.

Tina tells the camera she’s a week late.  Could she be pregnant?

John and Kathryn (Married seven months):  John and Kathryn only dated six months before getting engaged.  Kathryn decided to give up working, move to the burbs, and become a homemaker.  Additionally, they decided to become pregnant immediately.  Now Kathryn is finding out just what an insensitive clod her husband John really is.  His friend comes over to “help” paint the baby’s room because Kathryn wants John to participate in preparation for the baby.  John wants to give the impression of starting to paint the room, but then have his friend take over the job.  Kathryn comes in to tell him the tanning bed at the salon is not working.  John takes over and calls the salon to straighten it out.  Kathryn doesn’t want John to undermine her decisions about the salon.  Well, then she should have taken care of the problem herself and not gone running to John about it.  John laughs at Kathryn’s attempt to solve the problem herself and Kathryn sees that as John thinking she’s “uncapable” (her word).  They are both on cell phones trying to solve the problem and John keeps shushing her and asking her to be quiet while he’s on the phone. What a jerk.

A few weeks later, John and Kathryn are at the baby store registering for gifts they want for the baby.  Kathryn realizes she knows nothing about a newborn.  John is having trouble getting used to the fact that the baby is going to be the main focus of all the love and attention.  What a jerk.  Later at a mixed gender baby shower for Kathryn, John continues being a jerk by acting bored and not getting with the program.  He’s not getting any attention and he’s acting like a big baby.  The shower is kind of disorganized.  They play a game where they try to guess the size of Kathryn’s girth.  Of course, John is way over the mark.  Her dad guesses it exactly.  At least her dad is supportive.  Kathryn and John’s family are not gelling the way Kathryn hoped.  John’s sister Ellen makes a jerky speech at the shower, about how she hopes she’s included in future pictures, how she can’t believe they got pregnant so fast after getting married, and about how she won’t be available to babysit on Friday or Saturday nights.  John tells his sister what a beautiful speech that was.  Kathryn can’t believe it and hopes Ellen feels better now that she’s gotten everything off her chest.

John and Kathryn arrive home with all the shower loot and John has figured out they got about $3,500 worth of stuff.  It’s all about the material things to John.  What a jerk.  They unload the SUV and pile the stuff on John’s pool table, which Kathryn says is the new playroom since John agreed to sell the pool table to his friend.  Ellen can’t believe John is giving up his pool room.  Kathryn asks John when the pool table is going to be outta there and he tells her in front of everybody he hasn’t 100 percent decided about taking away the pool table but he just hadn’t told her yet.  Kathryn tells him he can’t go back on his promise, but John thought they were just talking about it. His sister has her arm on John’s shoulder while this discussion is going on.  It’s a little weird, like she’s Teresa Guidice and Kathryn is the evil Melissa who has taken her baby brother away from her.  He tries to tell her how classy a home is with a pool table and she tells him he’s not ready to be a father.  She starts crying and tells him it’s no joke and their whole life is going to change.  His sister says they are not there yet, laughing while John is smirking.  Kathryn tells them it’s no joke, she’s not kidding. I’d like to smack the smirks off both John and Ellen’s faces.

Later Kathryn shows John the finished nursery and he tells her how beautiful it is how it gives him chills.  He seems insincere to me, but I think he’s a big jerk anyway.  I feel kind of sorry for Kathryn but if she knew John was like this and still married him, shame on her.  If she didn’t know, she probably should have taken time to get to know him better before marrying him and getting pregnant immediately.

Blair and Jeff (Married 7 months):  Blair and Jeff met in 2010, so they at least knew each other a few years before getting hitched.  Trouble is, they didn’t really do their homework about what a registered domestic partnership means in the State of California.  California is a community property state.  Add to that the federal government doesn’t recognize domestic partnerships, and you have a confusing mess.  Now they are dealing with real life issues like estates and finances and such.  Jeff goes on his own to meet with an estate attorney to get some clarity about his and Blair’s issues.  The attorney asks why Blair isn’t with him and why he came alone.  Jeff explains how touchy the issue is with Blair and how Jeff never gets a word in edgewise when they discuss it.  Jeff NOW realizes there are a lot of legal and financial things to deal with. Welcome to married life, Jeff.  The attorney asks Jeff if he wants to keep his house separate or share with Blair.  Jeff wants to look it as a business arrangement and the attorney reminds him marriage isn’t a business.  Jeff doesn’t trust Blair to handle financial matters because he doesn’t see him as responsible enough.  Should have thought about that before he married him.

Later, both are going to meet with a financial planner (not the estate attorney).  Before that, Jeff tries to explain to Blair what the estate attorney told him at the meeting about joint ownership of the house.  Blair says it’s very confusing to him and he should have been included in the meeting with the estate attorney.  He feels ganged up on and overwhelmed.  Jeff wants to join their finances and split all the expenses down the middle.  Blair says he’s not paying for a house that isn’t his.  Blair also has trust issues because of his parent’s nasty divorce.  He doesn’t want to pay for a mortgage without his name on it and then if Jeff leaves, he has nothing.  Jeff tells Blair it’s like he’s investing into the house and Blair says bull (while he’s using an eyelash curler, sorry, but that amuses me).  Jeff says Blair is too emotional and he needs to get educated about it and grow up and take care of his own finances instead of letting someone else do it for him, like his dad.  At the meeting, the financial planner explains about the confusing laws.  If Jeff puts Blair’s name on the house, the federal government would tax it as a gift, so Blair realizes Jeff would take a big hit and it would not be a good idea.  Jeff assures Blair that if he dies, he would get the house.  Blair is OK with this.  The financial planner tells them to put everything in writing.  They need wills, living trusts, etc.  Blair is finally getting proactive and involved which makes Jeff happy.

Kim and Alaska (Married 7 months):  Alaska is in New York and he has surprised Kim with some new bikes so they can go for a ride and have lunch together.  During lunch, Kim asks if he can change his flight to LA on Sunday, but he says he can’t because he has to be back at work on Monday.  She doesn’t want to relocate to LA because she would have to start her career over and wouldn’t have a support system there.  While she’s telling him this, he’s busy texting on his phone.  She’s getting frustrated that Alaska is starting to put the walls up again and not willing to discuss the situation.  In my opinion, the living arrangements should have been settled before they said “I do.”  She finally gets frustrated at the texting and he apologizes for his job spilling over into their time, but he doesn’t stop the texting and has a stupid grin on his face while he’s doing it.  He finally tells Kim he has to head out and leaves her there alone at the table.  What a jerk.  Kim is thinking the situation had better change soon.

Kim and Alaska go to the Haitian food market so Kim can make dinner for his family. He opens up about his deceased mom and Kim is surprised, but happy that he’s talking about her.  Kim agrees to make Alaska his favorite meal when he comes back to town, just like his mom did when she was living.  Alaska tells Kim he pushes his mom to the back of his mind as much as he can because it doesn’t help to talk about her.  Detached is the way he deals with it. Kim thinks it’s cold.  When Alaska talks about going back to his mom’s house and seeing the chair she used to sit in, he starts getting teary-eyed.  He tells Kim that’s why he doesn’t like to talk about her.  Kim feels sorry for him, but thinks it’s good for him to talk about it and it helps strengthen their bond.

After tonight’s episode, I’m starting to like Tina and Tarz a little more, John less and less, Blair and Jeff a little less than I did at first, and Kim and Alaska the same; I never quite warmed up to them from the get go.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I’m subliminally sitting next to BB on the porch in a rocking chair drinking my hot cup of tea. Ahhhhhh. I wish. 🙂 Have a great day.

  2. Rebecca says:

    Shoot me, I watched this one.

    I think Heather was spraying the “Maybe you touched your genitals” sanitizer, which you can order on ebay by the way. I was surprised to see her >this< close to letting her hair down and having a good time.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I thought so too. And she had on the latex gloves. Tamra’s not gonna use that stuff anyway. She don’t care!

  3. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    “Wrath of furry ass”….Starzy you kill me!!!! Back up to finish reading!!!!!

  4. Lulu says:

    Good Morning everyone!!! Crossing fingers that today will be a better day! Today my Aiden is 2 weeks old! I can’t believe how fast that went. I’m making a huge effort to take pictures of him. So he can have a huge 1st year photo album just like his brother.

    After watching OC last night I feel dirty!!! Like I accidentally turned on soft core porn!! OMG that was disgusting!!! WTH!?!?! The strippers were nasty and what is worse is what they were doing to the ladies. I wonder how Eddie and Slade would feel about what their women did or had done to them??!?!?! I wish I would have turned the channel once Lydia announced that she is leaving. OMG that was disgusting!!

    Loved the Alexis I want another baby and now!!! 🙂

    Still no sympathy for Tamra and her cry me a river “it’s someone else’s fault” for my behavior.

    Lydia is slowly growing on me just for the way she handled and put in her place Gretchen. In the previews of the next episode. I think she gets into it again with Gretchen.

    Heather who looked alive this episode and not like Morticia. Does not belong on this show she is odd man out. I like the way she handled Gretchen in the limo though when she brought up Vicki’s past. These women are just too wild for her.

    • lulu says:

      Forgot to add thank u starsy and bb for your awesome recaps!!!!!

      • iceNfire says:

        Hi lulu – Have you taken picuturs of him in a shoe/boot box? In a small drawer? Those types are fun to look at later to remember how small babies were 🙂

      • Stars99 says:

        Hey there Lulu… Yeah, I find the whole Tamra thing perplexing… Surely Bravo doesn’t believe we’re going to buy into her new spin, right? She still is treating people so shabbily… I mean to this day… I honestly can’t believe that Eddie is still going to marry her this weekend (I think that’s what I read)…

    • Catseye says:

      True about Morticia/Heather. I *think* I actually saw her wear something other than straight black.

  5. BB says:

    Wonderful recap Stars. I had quite a few chuckles reading it. It almost felt like I was there, which isn’t really a good thing come to think of it. If I were as shallow as these women, I think I would have to take a short walk off a long pier, of which there are quite a few around here.

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

    Starzy…OUTSTANDING!!!
    This episode was so gross-sooooo effing gross-and I don’t only mean the part where we watched Tamra getting screwed in the ear!!!
    Gretchen is funny b/c she loves to call Vicky a hypocrite-which she is! But so is Gretchen! Gretchen was so jellybelly that Tamra ran off with Vicky she couldn’t see straight!! Vicky hates that Tamra and Gretchen are friends and Gretchen hates the Vicky and Tamra are friends…2 idiots fighting over a bitter nasty mean girl…really? Has Tamra ever showed anyone that she is such a phenomenal friend that she is worth fighting for? Give it a rest already-they should both dump Tamra’s trampy ass!!
    As for Lydia-this girl needs to buy a clue or 2-butt out of everyone’s BI Business!!! I did like that she called Gretchen out in the limo though-Gretchen is a cry baby-a big honkin’ phony cry baby!! Tamra and Stickupthebutt Dubrow tried to act like Lydia dancing on a bar is the same as having a skeevy stricter violate your ear…not even close!! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      oh crud this makes me want to watch just to see what Lydia did or said to Gretchen.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      You nailed it Jill!

    • Stars99 says:

      OMG… the Real Jill… The episode was a new low, wasn’t it? I was really shocked they showed so much of it…to be honest… it was tough to know how much to actually recap… because it really did show how low Bravo has sunk just to attempt to get some ratings. I almost wish that Sonja from RHONY had been there… she would have livened things up… lol

  7. HuskerHuny says:

    Stars – I’m laughing out loud! Last night’s OC was so pathetic it is laughable and you caught it perfectly!

    Surprisingly, I caught myself laughing watching the Three Amigos dancing on the bar. They were having a great, drunken time. It’s so rare that we see the women having fun instead of ripping each other apart – oh wait, that’s coming. Even though I was laughing, it was pretty gross at the same time. I’m perplexed!

    Vicki – please get rid of the wife beater t-shirts and hopefully you threw that skirt away after you leaked in it.

    Gretchen – you were on a beach in Mexico, not in the Sahara. Harem pants? I don’t get it.

    Tamra – whatever storyline Bravo has saddled you with, I’m still not buying it. You are who you are; you treat people badly because you want to so just own it and stop blaming your past.

    Heather – liked it that you called Gretchen out on the Vicki gossip. But that’s all I like about you.

    Lydia – yes, she danced on the bar and had a blast. I didn’t see anyone take shots off of her body or put their heads where they didn’t belong. I as well would have left the room before the strippers. She showed respect to her husband and marriage by doing so. But at the same time, accepting her mother’s pot smoking still confuses me and her values.

    Gretchen – MIA

    Strippers – boy howdy Gretchen, you sure know how to pick’em. Yuck!

    Let’s just call it what it is – this episode was disgusting and gross! For a woman in her mid-40s and going into her third marriage, this was just a hot mess. The sad thing is that they thought it was cute and funny! I’m all for fun, but not if it requires a tetanus (sp?) shot.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi Husker Hon: great post. Love your message to TamTam!! I’m not watching, but I’m not buying any excuses for her. Everything she has done, she has done to keep her place on this show. period. She’s done a good job at doing wthatever it takes and I do mean…WHATEVER IT TAKES. Now, “whatever it takes” means what? Playing the victim. Not sure she can do this one, cause she and I and you know, this lady ‘aint no victim.

      re:Lydia and her mom. Maybe she feels like she HAS to accept her warts and all…you know, like maybe she has no choice, because she loves her? And would rather have her in her life the way she is rather than put her foot down and risk losing her. (I mean, losing their closeness)

    • Stars99 says:

      Giggles at HuskerHuny… I think we all need Tetanus shots just from watching the episode…. lol…

  8. plainviewsue says:

    Stars, a standing ovation!!!!! I watched the episode (still trying to bleach my eyes!), and you summed it all up perfectly.

    You really are such a great writer; OMG I was laughing so hard!!

    As for the show itself, I loved when Lydia said to Gretchen do you want me to give you my next born child!

    Otherwise, I need to take another shower.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      LOL. I read “a standing ovulation”. And it’s after 11:00 a.m., and I HAVE had coffee. Is it Friday yet?

      • Stars99 says:

        Dies laffin’ at “All we are is dust in the wind”… btw… did you see that they screwed up your name the other day? lololol

      • plainviewsue says:

        Kansas, I wish I had written standing ovulation!!!!

    • Stars99 says:

      plainviewsue – I’m just not sure that bleach is going to be strong enough to do the job this time… acid prolly won’t either… I’m not sure what to try next…

  9. Rebecca says:

    Stars – you deserve a day off with combat pay. Wow.

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Rebecca… We all deserve to be paid for sitting through watching it or reading about it, no? Bravo needs to pay up! = )

  10. jules says:

    “As the saying goes, some people are so dumb, that if they threw themselves on the ground, they’d miss.” OMG Stars99, you crack me up every single recap! I didn’t watch a second of OC and boy am I glad I didn’t. You should get hazard pay for watching that shipwreck and then describing it for all of us! Just reading it made my skin crawl.

    Tamra and her sympathy tour is grating on my very last nerve. I’m sorry her parents had tough childhoods and that she feels she did too. But geez louise, she is supposed to be a grown up woman with four children, Build a bridge and get over yourself. I know many, many people who had difficult childhoods (my own mother being one) and they didn’t use it as an excuse for being a bitch. Tamra is worried about Gretchen being mad that she’s friends with Vicki now? Really?? Again, get over yourself Tamra. You’re all adults, if you can’t be friends with more than one person at a time then you have much bigger problems than having a tough childhood.

    Enough, climbing off my soapbox. Thanks for the great recap Starsy. You saved me from sticking needles in my eyes!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Happy Birthday, Jules!!! Stay away from the needles!

    • BB says:

      Happy Birthday Jules! Hope you have a great day!

      • soxwalsh says:

        Thank you all but you’ve got the wrong jules. My birthday is in February. I believe there is another jules on this site but she uses a capital J. But thanks anyway LOL!

        • TexasTart says:

          Uh oh, there is a Jules and a jules?! I thought at one time a Jules was in CA and then when the tragedy in Boston struck, there was a jules in Boston – so this is two different people! I think there are two SCGirl(s) also, with upper and lower case. I don’t think anyone would want my name, so I guess I’m safe from duplicates, ha ha.

          • Kansas Girl says:

            You’re one of a kind, TT!

          • jules says:

            Yes, TT, there are two jules. I’m the one from Mass with the lower-case “j”. I was on the site first but then stopped commenting after Lynn was gone. I only started commenting recently. Sometimes this website logs me in as “soxwalsh” too so if I don’t pay attention, my comments are posted under that name. Sorry for the confusion. I’d say I’d leave you all in peace but I love this site too much to do that!

    • princesspindy says:

      Happy Birthday Jules!!!!!!!

    • Stars99 says:

      lol jules… I love that saying… I’m sure you’ll be hearing it again from me because it applies to so many people… lol… So glad you don’t hafta stick needles in your eyes. However, if you move them up like 3 inches… then you’d hit your forehead and have some acupuncture, no? lol

  11. Happy Birthday ValleyVal and Jules

  12. NJBev says:

    Excellent Blogs, Stars and BB, thank you!!!!

    Happy Birthday Jules and VV!!

  13. BB says:

    Happy Birthday Valley Val!

  14. TexasTart says:

    Happy Birthday ValleyVal!
    (is one and the same as VV?!)
    Happy Birthday to you! 😀

  15. TexasTart says:

    Happy Birthday Jules! 😀

  16. TexasTart says:

    Going to post some random tweets….they are all from yesterday. Sorry for any duplicate shares…

  17. TexasTart says:

  18. NJBev says:

    Good Morning!
    It’s a beautiful day here in NJ-
    It’s so weird, today is the first day in about a year that I
    don’t have something I “HAVE” to do, it feels funny.
    There are lots of things I “SHOULD” do, food shopping, laundry,
    dry cleaners, phone calls, clean, well you all get my drift-
    But I don’t “HAVE” to do anything- meet w/ contractors, take care of
    Mom, fix something………….
    I feel so free….. I read the whole blog this morning w/o
    constantly checking the clock and panicking!

  19. TexasTart says:

    • LaineyLainey says:

      cool! I wonder if they’ll bait her so that she’ll trash talk on…that lady. Can’t think of her name…the one married to the lawyer. Black.

      • TexasTart says:

        Lea Black. Someone will have to let me know, I don’t watch The View.

      • Powell says:

        Oh that’s funny. Elizabeth & Sheri will ask plenty of ?s. Whoopi doesn’t watch reality tv & Barbara will ask ?s like the excellent journalist she is.

    • chismosa says:

      oooh thanks for this, I will dvr. I love Ana

  20. TexasTart says:

    • LaineyLainey says:

      That’s neat! I wish I had learned the piano. I even have one. Old upright Baldwin in desperate need of tuning.

  21. TexasTart says:

  22. TexasTart says:

  23. NJBev says:

    Here’s a random question-
    In your opinion, what is the best option
    for hair removal from your face?
    (Jeff, no need to answer, I think we know your
    answer!! lol)

    Has anyone ever tried that thing “NO NO”?
    What about home lasers?

    • BB says:

      No, no I haven’t. I can’t help you because I haven’t had to deal with it before.

      • NJBev says:

        some people are lucky like that, not “hairy” haha
        I’ve been very fortunate because I’m blond and it doesn’t show-
        or didn’t! I get my brows waxed and sometimes my upper lip.
        I think I have the normal “stragglers” on the chin area and
        just pluck them. But it seems to be coming in faster
        and faster these days and I don’t want to have to worry
        about “another” maintenance issue!! I have enough
        other things to worry about!
        I was going to just go to the salon for the laser “permanent”
        removal, but that takes 5-8 visits and it ain’t cheap!
        So I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions……..
        😉

    • melthehound says:

      Actually my answer is let it grow but I don’t think that would work for you 😉

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Well, I was hoping others would answer. They used to say peroxide would bleach it, but that doesn’t work. Laser removal works but is expensive. Wax — ech, painful. There is a very fine sandpaper called Baby Face (Target, or just go to the hardware store and get the finest they have — but DON’T tell them what you want it for!), and it really works if you don’t abrade the skin. Caroline Manzo shaves, and I actually tried that (and it works if you do it daily). Know that as you get older, hair doesn’t grow as thick. This is a blessing.

      My sad life and the stupid stuff I know!

    • Catseye says:

      I have a No No (HSN), a Silk’n Sensepil (ShopNBC) and a battery operated tweezing type of thing (QVC). I use all three. The No No uses a “blade” that is actually a hot wire that singes the hair, the Sensepil uses a really bright light cartridge and the tweezing thing only uses a couple of AAA batteries. The Sensepil will not work on light colored hair, the light is attracted to the pigment in the hair, which absorbs it somehow. But you CAN use a CARBON DYE that you spread on your face and it wipe off, it helps to temporarily color the hair and works pretty well.

      • Catseye says:

        There’s also a new laser thing called a Flash & Go, from Sensepil, it’s a little cheaper. I do love my laser hair thing. And I only have to use it on my underarms every couple of months for maintenance now. (It took a while and several light cartridges to get to that point).

        • iceNfire says:

          Hi Catseye – Which one is the laser hair thing? I would love to do my underarms only every couple months

          • Catseye says:

            Silk n’ Sensepil. Also the Flash & Go, by the same company. There’s one called Tria too. The drawbacks of the Flash & Go and Tria are that they don’t have cartridges. Each one is loaded with a designated amount of “flashes” and once it’s done, you throw the whole thing out. That’s why I went with the Sensepil. I buy the cartridges from Amazon for about $45 each.

            • princesspindy says:

              What would be a reasonable price for the Silk n Sensepil, I see all the way to $600…I am looking at Target cuz I can use the 5% on the red card and my friend gets 10%, it would be about $300??

        • kit9 says:

          What about the Nono…does it really permanently remove hair?

          • iceNfire says:

            Catseye – plz come back we need more info. 🙂

          • Catseye says:

            Nope. It singes the hair with a hot wire that is attached to a plastic “blade.” The hair does grow in a lot finer. The refill blades can sometimes be difficult to find/sold out. And they only last about a month, if you use the unit (which is recharge-able/plug into the wall), after using it the really coarse hairs can usually be pulled out with a tweezers w/o breaking. THAT is a plus, since I have literally dug a hole in my face, obsessing about trying to pull out a coarse, black hair. I will say that the No No customer service was really nice and allowed me to sign up with an extended warranty program about 2yrs after I’d had my unit (from HSN). I was able to send it in and they sent me a refurbished one. I think it cost me about $50. I use all 3 of my gadgets and don’t regret buying any of them. You can also try waxing. I don’t care for it because I had it done on my upper lip, years ago and now I have a broken capillary.

        • NJBev says:

          good info, catseye, thanks!

          • Catseye says:

            Sure! I love beauty products!! I have 2 of these LED red lights, LightStim and another one. I love those things for helping with brown spots, wrinkles, etc. I also have a DermaWand that I don’t use that much any more, since I bought the lights. And they can also be used for pain relief.

    • chismosa says:

      NJBev, I know a lot about this

      If you have some random hairs that come in and you want to permanently get rid of it I suggest electrolysis.
      Let me know if you want more detailed info

      As for larger areas, like arms and legs I hope to be able to invest in laser hair removal at some place
      I have debated getting the Tria– but hearing the below solidifies that I don’t want it.
      Also I ordered a Nono then read bad things and returned it.

      Let me know if you want any more info!

      And thanks Catseye and all for the advice on this ^^^^^^

  24. T-Rex says:

    Starzy – Great Blog and thank you for reminding me why I am not watching the OldCronesOfBeverlyHillsAdjacent. Seriously, these women are chronologically not 19 year olds, all but one are over 40 and by a number of years, although emotionally they are 9. It is not cute and funny to see OldCrones being dry humped by not so hunky strippers, who didn’t even bother to bring music, ugh, I guess that’s all they could get on short notice in Mexico. Glad to see Lydia has some class and did a nicely done “exit stage left” when the strippers arrived, I bet Heather wished she had done that as well. In addition, not buying the whole “boohoo” twins that got left in the Limo. As was noted, IckyVicky had announced in her probably loud as hell voice, where they were going and the Limo driver could have easily taken them there. HeatherStickintheMud most certainly did not want to go to “that place”, she is too good for that, and I think Wretchen wanted to have an excuse to get HeatherStickintheMud on her side about IckyVicky and tell everyone what LyingLaurie had to say, again. TrailerTrashTrampySue does not dissapoint in showing viewers exactly why i have dubbed her TrailerTrashTrampySue! Let’s recap you are dancing in a bar, well on a bar with probably no panties on, while patrons of the bar get a free show looking at your vajayjay. Then for the “piece de resistance” you allow some mexican strippers to dry hump you on national television. TrailerTrashTrampySue lets give this perspective, your children should be so PROUD of the skank-ass momma that she parades herself out on television as such a great role model(yeah for Prostitutes and Skankasswhores everywhere), oh and yes this footage will be available for use throughout your teen and college years so anyone that meets them can bring this up to see everything about your skankass momma. Simon has to be thanking his lucky stars on a daily basis that TrailerTrashTrampySue left him. Bravo has made several attempts to rehabilitate her reputation for this spin-off which I believe will be an EPIC>FAIL

    • NJBev says:

      Did bravo actually greenlight a Trampon spin-off?!

      • T-Rex says:

        Yeppers they did, UGH! Hence the “rehabilitation” edit she is getting this season. Of course TrailerTrashTrampySue is still showing her “true” colors and no matter how much they try to edit, they can’t get that Skank out of the HO’. I wonder if GayEddie is peeved not so much that the strippers dry-humped his “Beard”, but that they weren’t nice looking or classy strippers, just random dudes off the street.

      • BB says:

        Yes, Tammy Sue has confirmed it.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Yes but it is just 3 episodes

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      The spin-off premiers in September….

      • BB says:

        Eddie still has a few days to change his mind before the wedding Saturday. I wonder if this is the “filmed” wedding or the other more intimate personal wedding Tammy Sue was talking about. Remember, she has to have multiple bachelor parties, showers and weddings. Just one is not enough.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      You nailed it!

    • Stars99 says:

      Hello my favorite dinosaur… I love the “Beverly Hills Adjacent” reference… I know this is weird… but I did find it especially egregious that the strippers did not have the appropriate music. But then, what do I know… I’m laughing at myself that I’m in it for the music… oh well…lololol…

  25. TexasTart says:

    Stars! Thanks for watching – so I don’t have to!!!!
    How did this franchise sink so low?! And Stars manages to make a hilarious play by play of the best and worst of their shenanigans! I about fell out of my chair with “Hey Tamra, I hear Kim Richards has a pillow to go with that comforter!” 😆

    • Stars99 says:

      Hello Tart One! I’m so glad you don’t have to watch the show… it’s quite shocking these days… I just sigh and shake my head while I type, for the most part… lol

  26. realhousewifeva says:

    Great recap Stars! Thank God I didn`t watch that mess!
    I saw a preview clip on Bravotv.com and Gretchen is all distraught that Tamra would invite Alexis to such a special event like dress shopping for her THIRD WEDDING after the way Alexis treated Tamra for the previous 9 months.
    Umm, Gretchen, YOU are all up Tamra`s ass after the way she treated you for the past 3 years and anything Tamra did was way worse than Alexis crying and calling Tamra a bully! Is this woman serious? I can`t believe I actually ever liked Gretchen. And she talks about hypocrites?!

    They all want to be Tamra`s friend, just because they are afraid to be her enemy.

    • NJBev says:

      absolutely, better to be her friend than her enemy—-

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        I think the problem is they’re too dimwitted to tango with sharp-tongued TrashbotTammy. Insulting her ho-ish behaviour or trailer park upbringing is futile as she easily brushes that off and will relentlessly go for the jugular.. She’s also quick with a callous retort but the others could slay her on her achilles heel which is her age and looks.

        • Stars99 says:

          Hi Amber… I really thought that in earlier seasons, before I knew much about her – that Tamra was actually very pretty. Now, I just can’t get past her personality. I can say the same thing about Gretchen… Their personalities just screw up any objectivity for me… lol… well that, and the all the plastic crap they do to themselves to try to look young.

          • iceNfire says:

            Actually – It was Alexis that got everyone to go against Icky, even Tamara. Now I wonder if she has it in her to do the same to T

    • Stars99 says:

      Lol Realhousewifeva… the saying, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer” comes to mind, no?

  27. TexasTart says:

    Really, after reading the recap of NJ and OC, I’m thinking maybe the disgusting men from NJ might be better matched to the disgusting women of the OC! The Ewwwww factor is off the charts for me. And like so many of us say ‘and I’m no prude’ either! I have got to get back to work and stay away from here! Snark on, my friends! 😀

  28. vilzvet says:

    A double shot of good news for me, not only is our much wanted trip to So Cal booked (Venice Beach), but yesterday was able to get guaranteed admission to my favorite show, The Price is Right! Will be taping August 27th! Can’t wait!

  29. AZGirl says:

    Good morning and Happy Birthday Jules and ValleyVal. Stars and BB youse guys are the best.
    OT: Last night another big fight with Mr.AZGirl and First Born. Yes I had too much wine.
    But I have been spending that last 2 weeks watching the puppy at night out by the pool. I don’t think it is fair to keep her inside when she is inside all day because it is hot. I can’t walk her due to the heat from the sidewalks.
    I did not want a dog. He did. I love dogs and have had 3.
    I have house broken Pepper almost completely and I am in the pool with her every day to get her acclimated.
    Mr. AZGirl comes home, eats dinner (which I prepare), watches the news and then retreats to the bedroom to read.
    I am mad that he is not helping out. He is not talking to me because of our fight. I don’t know why I am the bad guy if I am doing all the work.

    • princesspindy says:

      (((AZGirl))) Bastardos!!!

    • NJBev says:

      Wow. It sounds like we are all living each others lives in alternate universes.
      I have had this issue w/ my hubs and kid forever!
      I DID NOT want the dog, they did.

      This is not your fault at all, AZ. You work hard, keep physically fit, entertain
      and do everything else for your family. The dog, no matter how much everyone
      promises to help, always falls on Mommy.

    • BB says:

      You are not the bad guy. You have every right to complain about not getting any help with a dog you weren’t ready for in the first place. Dogs are a big responsibility and it sounds like you’re the only one who got the memo. Perhaps you could be “too busy taking care of the dog” to fix dinner a few nights in a row and let them fend for themselves. How would that go over?

    • jules says:

      My advice AZGirl is to stop doing all the work.period. I had similar issues with my hubby except it was general work around the house, not the dog. So I stopped making dinner, washing dishes, doing his laundry, etc. When we ran out of clean dishes and food (and we did), I bought myself dinner ONLY and brought it home. It took a couple of weeks because we are both stubborn but it worked. When our two sons were old enough, I started teaching them how to clean and hubby taught them both to do their own laundry at 13. Sometimes we have to fight fire with fire no matter how immature it may seem.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Sometimes for with fire is the only way…both get burned but a lesson is learned!!

      • Catseye says:

        That sounds like a really good idea. People learn to appreciate things really quickly once you stop doing things for them.
        About the dog, I wonder if you could buy her some doggy socks (from ebay or Amazon) to wear while she’s walking and protect her feet from the heat that way? They make different sizes/styles, it’s just little stretchy socks with a non-skid, rubber sole. What would be really cool, is if you AND your husband would make it a habit to go out in the evening for a walk together w/Pepper!

    • iceNfire says:

      (((AZGirl))) – If you are not already attached…maybe find Pepper a new home? Sorry was that mean?

      • AZGirl says:

        No you are being mean just honest. I am so attached to this dog. Pepper is really a good dog. She has the house training down the past 3 days. She is crate trained. Cute as a button but a puppy. I have alway gotten an older rescue. One that is about a year so the pool is never an issue. They just jump in. She is still small and the pool is huge.

        • iceNfire says:

          Oh I get it now! Yes puppies are hard…nothing like infants that you can lay down and walk away for a bit. Those puppies will follow or yap if not able to.

    • Stars99 says:

      AZ – Your AZ guy needs a swift reality check.

    • TexasTart says:

      (((AZGirl))) I can commiserate with you on this one…the only difference is I have wanted the dogs…well, not usually as huge as some he insisted we get and had, but I have since put my foot down about them weighing more than me! Hubs is the alpha dog and our dogs think the sun rises and sets on him…that is a good structure, but I am a little jealous that my wrath of furry thinks this way when I am their chef, waiter, nurse and maid!
      If how my man cares for the dogs when I am not available is any indication how it would have been if we had children together – I think that would have been unbalanced! I mean, he can very well take care of them and has excellent communications with them, but the having to ask and remind him to do this and that for them is ridiculous. So I get it AZGirl! Absense is about the only thing that gets through sometimes – if you are temporarily not there to do it all. Of course, then you might come home an find every rug in the house has been peed and pooped on! 😛

  30. Exit4 says:

    Back in college, during sorority pledging, we had to do this crazy scavenger hunt. We went to every bar, half the frat houses in custom t shirts and drank so much, I can’t believe I didn’t have alcohol poisoning! We got sprayed with whipped cream, got hosed down by a buch of frat guys. Some girls got their faces colored with marker, there was some kind if choreographed dance to “I touch myself” while blindfolded and I had to eat a banana out if a toilet…. it was a night! The next morning I woke up in my bed (dont know how I got there?) with no bra and covered in pee! My roommate helped me clean up and I was literally sick for days.

    So, I can only imagine how much Vicki drank to pee herself. The moral of the story is: don’t drink to loss of bladder control and women are crazy sometimes. I NEVER drank like that again. Oh and the sight if Mad Dog or SoCo immediately turns my stomach!

    • NJBev says:

      another case of same life, alternate universe.
      The sight of MD or SoCo makes me sick……………..

      • T-Rex says:

        Count me in on that one, what was up with us thinking MD2020 of SoCo was COOL to drink oh, and add Gin on that list for me, to this day can’t smell any of that stuff, oh, the college days. YUP! I too am one that was lucky enough to not have been filmed or born in the day where everyone twats and facebooks their entire day including bowel movements. Back in my day you bring a camera you were never invited back to a partay!

  31. Exit4 says:

    Oh, and as an aside to my story, yes there is photographic evidence! Some if which I have in my possession. Those were the days when you had to go to CVS with your film and wait to get it back. Then destroy the incriminating evidence including negatives.

    I THANK GOD there was no Facebook or social media then. OMG. We all used to screw around and take inappropriate pictures. Like Gretchen, I have a toilet shot or 2! I’m so glad technology waited to explode AFTER my college years!

    • princesspindy says:

      I thank God everyday that not everyone was carrying a camera in their pocket in “the day”, I just can’t even imagine. Kids nowadays can’t make crazy mistakes….everything is documented and follows them around for the rest of their lives!

      • NJBev says:

        could you imagine if
        there was “facebook” or smartphones
        in our “day”!!!!!???????????

        oh.. the humiliation………………..

        • princesspindy says:

          OMG!! although nowadays there seems to be no concept of the word “shame”….. My son was telling me about his friend’s college and the girls there brag on fb about how many guys they have slept with and it is like a competition…..he was sad about it.

        • BB says:

          Oh, the things my parents (and children) don’t know about, and never will, thank goodness. I feel sorry for today’s youth. They can’t get away with anything.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Today’s youths don’t care about getting away with anything-back in my day we had something called FEAR-in no longer exists…these youths fear no one and nothing!!!

    • AZGirl says:

      I thank god every day that Facebook was not invented when I was in college

    • kit9 says:

      Holy crap! We had a scavenger hunt when I pledged, too, but it was super tame compared to that! And, SO second your comments about social media and college. I wouldn’t have survived college, my sorority or much else if I had to contend with drunken photos of me all over the place the day after. Man, I do feel for this generation. Imagine sleeping with someoen for the first time and having to, if even for a second, about whether it’s being broadcast, taped, etc etc….crazy.

      • Exit4 says:

        The good old days when no one knew you did the walk of shame unless they happened to pass you on the street…..

    • TexasTart says:

      Oh my gosh, it makes me shutter to think of reliving my youth with camera phones and social media! Hmm, maybe I would have behaved better?! hehe.

      • Exit4 says:

        Looking back, yes, it was bad-but I can laugh. We had fun. Nobody died (thank God!). Even though I shared with you,(and it IS 20 years later) these are stories we only shared with each other! It never went much farther, out of fear the University would catch wind of it! Because there were rats in Pan Hel-it still had that secret society aspect. Not anymore!

  32. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Brandi has fired her assistant-apparently the dog was not dognapped during a home invasion-the assistant lost the dog..Brandi said if she can’t trust the assistant with her dog how can she trust her with her kids…the dog is still missing.

    • BB says:

      I never fell for the home invasion story and Brandi shouldn’t have either. Who would break into someone’s house and steal a “mutt” and nothing else?

    • kit9 says:

      Well, according to Brandi, she didn’t believe the break in story but repeated it anyway. Also, Brandi now says that the assistant lost both her dogs a week ago and that she had to go find them. Wtf? She didn’t fire her then? And, why the ef would an assistant be caring for her kids? Whole story stinks.

    • TexasTart says:

      This whole deal seemed fishy and honestly I thought that she pissed of the wrong person. It did strike me odd that she very quickly got a replacement dog and maybe that was for her boys, but still. Thanks for the update JNNTJ.

  33. Powell says:

    Did anyone watch Mistresses on ABC last night? It was very good. It’s from the British version that was on BBC America. I loved it & was sad that it went off. ABCs version is good. I hope they keep the momentum because American networks haven’t had great success adapting British drama or comedies. The Office did have a good run.

    • NJBev says:

      it took me a while to appreciate “the office”…….
      some shows are like that-

    • Rebecca says:

      I loved the BBC version of MIstresses. I haven’t watched the American version.

      My all-time faves are Coupling and Footballers Wives. I’m bummed that America couldn’t figure out a way to make those shows work. If Netflix ever brings Footballers Wives to streaming video, I will watch it 24/7. It is way better trash tv than Bravo.

      • Powell says:

        Oh Rebecca Coupling and Footballers Wives where my shows. I loved them. That Tanya on FWs was evil. I had FWs & the 2nd one on my TiVo. My TiVo stopped working and you know I was mad. NBC tried to do the American version of coupling. I was so disappointed in NBC cause they didn’t change a word of the script and sometimes British comedy isn’t easy to understand. It deserved to be cancelled. I hope ABC doesn’t make the same mistake w/Mistresses. It such a good drama.

  34. Orson says:

    I have to say this about Lydia’s headband… at least it kept her hair OVER her ears. I have to give her props for that. And for having the brains to leave before the strippers arrived.

  35. Powell says:

    “Sometimes you have to call a dildo a dildo.”. Stars I have just started reading and I’m already in silent tears of laughter. Silent yes cause I don’t want my co-workers to think I’m crazy. Thks. 🙂

    • Stars99 says:

      lol Powell… Well, it’s true… sometimes you DO hafta call a dildo a “dildo.” lolol

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

    REMEMBER: ALWAYS BE A SURVIVOR AND NEVER A VICTIM & STRONG IS THE NEW SKINNY!

    This is how TammySue ended her blog….is she friggen kidding me??? What a moron!!!

    • Cartwheels says:

      Then Tamra is a huge cow , she is not strong and has never stood on her two feet , she has always depended on a guy financially and emotionally.
      Tamra is definitely not a survivor , unless putting up with her nasty temper can now be considered as a surviving skill.

      • Orson says:

        Depends on your definition of “survivor”. She got along fine using sex to get men to take care of her financially and emotionally.

  37. VV says:

    Happy Birthday Jules!………and Happy Birthday to MEEEEE!!!!!!!

    I started as posting here as ValleyVal, Diva and others started calling me VV, so I switched. Kind of like what Baroness Beachcomber did…now BB.

    THANKS TO “EACH AND EVERY ONEOF YOU” FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES. I wish the same right back at you 😀

    Have a wonderful day LynnFam!!!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY VV REVERE!!! I hope your day is shi shi shi fabulous!!!!

      Happy Birthday, ladies.

    • Powell says:

      Oh I missed birthdays.

      Happy Birthday Jules & VV. 🙂

    • Jules says:

      Happy birthday back to you. May you have many, many more. Do you have people tell you everything about them that they shouldn’t? I posted with lynninchicago as Jules but will think of a new name perhaps simply adding sc to avoid confusion with lower case jules.

    • chismosa says:

      VV happy belated birthday!
      I thought of you as I watched Bethenny on Ellen (blech)

      Hope you had a great day!

  38. princesspindy says:

    ****And no, I don’t mean a dildo that honks…****
    THIS made me laugh out loud!!! And the line about throwing themselves on the floor and missing….YOU KNOW I am going to steal that one!!!!
    Great Job Stars!!!!!
    I thought after last night’s episode, ‘That’s it, I’m done” but then I saw Brooks showing up at the party next week and I know I will watch….oh well…. And I like Lydia, she doesn’t fit the HW backstabbing, passy assy stereotype. She just blurts out “Is everyone ok” at every meeting, it cracks me up cuz “That is not the way we do things around here!” Her motto is “Can we all just get along?”…. she has so much to learn.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I like Lydia b/c she start sh*t but I’m still not sure if she does it on purpose or if she is just a dingbat…

      • princesspindy says:

        I think she just wants everyone to get along and be in a peaceful environment, ippho, I don’t think she is calculating, that would require too much thinking, I think she is codependent, if there is a disturbance in the force she wants to fix it….but this is HWs and they like to hold on to sh*t and talk behind each others backs and have drama, they don’t want to be adult and discuss it, there would be no show.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Stars, is the line about throwing yourself on the floor and missing an Uncle Si expression? It sounds like something he’d say. I’m stealing it too!

      • Stars99 says:

        Hi All We are is Dust in the Wind – No, I didn’t hear it from Si, although I’m sure he has said it – it’s a southern saying that I’ve kind of adopted… It just makes me laff so hard and it applies perfectly to so many people, no? lol

    • Stars99 says:

      lol Tiara… Yes, I don’t think Lydia has read the “Housewife Book of Etiquette”… omg… we should write a book… lolololol… omg omg omg…

  39. iceNfire says:

    Good Morning – Still Reading but wanted to mention “that the doors slide open like a minivan” is equated to “rape vans” or that was my impression by the look on Heather’s face….back to reading
    Thanks Stars99 🙂

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Ha!! Good one ice..and true!!

    • Stars99 says:

      lol Ice… It’s hard for me to figure out some of Heather’s expressions – and when she’s acting and when she’s not. I think she often hams it up for the camera because she knows it will be a good “shot.” She’s an actress, you know! (Sorry, obscure “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” reference… where that guy says, “I’m a dentist, you know.”) lolol

      • Stars99 says:

        … or wants to be a dentist… I can’t remember the exact quote… but his name is “Herbie”… or something like that, I think…

  40. ktinct says:

    Hhappy Birthdays, VV and Jules 🙂

  42. Catseye says:

    I thought strippers were supposed to put on a show, not just whip their thing out and start rubbing it on women? Were these REAL strippers, or some guys that happen to work at the hotel–janitors or something? After all, it was stupid Gretchen that hired them!

    • Orson says:

      Were these REAL strippers, or some guys that happen to work at the hotel–janitors or something? After all, it was stupid Gretchen that hired them!
      ^^^^^^^^^
      I think you answered your own question there. G and T strike me as the kind of gals that know their strippers.

  43. shamrockblonde says:

    Stars!!!! I am at work and people can hear me laughing!!!! you outdid yourself with this one!!

    “The camera guy was probably still cranky at the other camera crew for beating him in their rock/paper/scissors/lizard/Spock throw down that won them the job of following the fun girls.”
    This cracked me up – I am a huge Big Bang Theory fan and loved the reference!!!

    “I bet they don’t give a “wrath of furry’s” ass, either. ” – this is going to be a regular expression of mine that I stole from this board – the other being ” a casino” – loved it!!

    your explaation of why Heather and Gretchen made no sense complaining about having to get a cab back to the hotel was pure perfection –

    my only explanation for the quality of the alleged strippers would be that Gretch spent too much on gian dildos and penis decorations – I’m with Vicki – not my kind of strippers – and that part of the episode was hideous – wonder what Slade will say when he sees his Gretch in that sandwich pose…then again, he would probably join in… eeeewwwwww

    sadly, I cannot wait to see what happens next week……….*bows head utterly defeated*

    • Stars99 says:

      Shamrock…. I love, love, LOVE BBT! It totally cracks me up. I’d recap it – but I’m not sure how to go about it… lolol

  44. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    What is it with Gretchen and those juvenile hand gestures? It’s so crass and gross

  45. iceNfire says:

    BB – Thanks for blog 🙂 I don’t really care about any of the newlyweds but I think the Sister that wants to be included in pictures might spice things up in that special Bravo kind of way… idk if this is good or bad though

  46. Orson says:

    Stars, I don’t know how you can do it. I mean, you had to watch it all the way through, then fire up the DVR to re-view it to write a recap. I am in awe. I couldn’t stand to watch it all the way through once.

    Oh, except for maybe Jeff, there isn’t one newlywed in that Newlywed show that I don’t want to slap upside their head.

    • Stars99 says:

      Orson, it’s true this one was tough to watch, for sure! There were some scenes I just couldn’t watch more than once. Many scenes I had to close my eyes but then I reminded myself that I had to recap it so I had to force myself to actually watch it. I’m glad you didn’t watch the whole thing. You missed exactly nothing of any worthfulness.

  47. grassynowell says:

    Alright…. I’m coming out of lurkdom because OC totally gave me nightmares last night and you all are the only ones who will appreciate it. Be warned this dream will show just what a geek I am.

    So Tamra is getting married and for some reason I’m there and it’s at Hogwarts (for you non-geeks, Hogwarts is the Harry Potter Castle. Why Dumbledore would allow any of the Housewives get married there is beyond me, but he is a wise ole wizard so…) So I try to find a seat and Gretchen sits down in it at the same time. I shrug and go try to find a different seat. Same thing happens. Try again, Gretchen is once again there. I say “Gretchen, where are you planning on sitting? I don’t want to be in competition with you for a chair.” She begins to scream at me “YOU’RE SUCH A HYPOCRITE!!! How come YOU’RE allowed to sit WHEREVER you want but I can’t?!?” I’m shocked but finally find a seat where she can’t find me.

    Enter Tamra. Walking down the aisle after some really gross strippers. The strippers shove my Grandma’s face in their crotch. (My grandma doesn’t even know Tamra or Hogwarts castle, so I’m confused why she’s even there). Tamra and Eddie begin to do their vows, but Tamra stops and looks at me. “Would you like to buy a Custom Fire Pit from a Fiery Housewive?” she asks. “No thanks, I already have a fire pit.”
    Cue ugly tearless crying.
    “When I was 6, I had a dream to sell custom fire pits. When I was 10, my father refused to buy one of my custom fire pits. When I was 12, my mother told me my custom fire pits weren’t pretty enough. When I was 14 I started thinking about suicide in one of my custom fire pits. At 21 I was in the hospital, which later turned down my offer to build them a custom fire pit in lieu of my bill.”
    I tried to explain to Tamra that I already had a fire pit, but Lydia jumps in “Don’t you think that you should make a big move and have TWO custom fire pits?” I’m confused why these women care about my fire pits.

    The last thing I hear before I wake up is a distant “Whooooo-hooooing,” followed by the threat of someone getting ready to “kill this b*#&*”

    I woke up confused and disoriented. But more distressed that somehow, someway the OC Housewives had infiltrated my perfect little Harry Potter dream world…..

    Sorry for the long post – but I thought some of you might get a laugh! Anyone else having the housewives enter their dreams?

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      LOL- Hi Grassyknoll, welcome out of lurkerdome. Thanks for the laughs. Fortunately I gave up the OC so those ‘ladies’ don’t enter my dreams..and if they did, it would be a nightmare.

    • princesspindy says:

      Welcome!!
      You should have used “Expecto Patronum” on those bitches….just be glad none them kissed you!!
      Obviously we are going to have to call the exterminators to fumigate Hogwarts!

      • grassynowell says:

        Why didn’t I think of ‘Expecto Patronum’?!?! Dream GrassyNowell needs to work on her spells. Snape and McGonagall would be furious.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        What a nightmare…except for the Harry Potter part!! When I was reading Harry Potter I had dreams about the book all the time…same with The Hunger Games…thank The Lord I never dream of the housewives!!!

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi grassynowell – What a nightmare! Thankfully I have never had any HW visit me in my dreams

    • Stars99 says:

      Grassy – I’m so glad you came out of lurkdom to comment! I was a lurker for a long time before I ever commented, too! Now you can’t shut me up! lol… Hope that nightmare goes away! = )

      LOL funny lady. 🙂 I’ve never had a dream w/HWs in it. Maybe you wanted to be in JK Rowlings next book & brought a couple HWs along with you. 😀

    • Orson says:

      “Custom Fire Pits”?? What, you shave then Tamra slathers your pits with aftershave?

      • grassynowell says:

        Wow. I didn’t even think about it that way. I was thinking about outdoor fire pits. But you would be right – Burning arm pits would be much more Tamra’s style.

    • Rebecca says:

      Hilarious!!! Just think, if you ever dream in Westeros (Game of Thrones), all those bitches would be dead by the time you woke up.

    *******Warning! What I am about to post is gross!!*****

    I was on another gossip site yesterday evening and there was a post that said something like “Well, this is Brandi Glanvilles vagina” something to that effect, and me not really thinking it was actually going to be HER ACTUAL vagina clicked on it, and what do you know?? I was ACTUALLY just that! Her vagina! Stupid me! But anyway…it was a picture of her sitting in a car in a dress all made up to go who knows were with NO panties on whatsoever and you could basically see everything! SMH. Now, I know that half here love her and half here hate her, I happen to be one that loves her, but this made me really grossed out with her. Why in the world does a 40 something year old woman NEED to out and about wearing NO PANTIES AT ALL!!?!?!? Not only is it gross, but SO completely unsanitary! I get that she’s a free spirit or whatever but come on, thats too much!

    p.s. Last night Vicki peeing on the bed was also disgusting, she needs to drink more water bc her pee was bright yellow. ANOTHER GROSS!!

    • djprincessc says:

      **it was**

    • BB says:

      Not making excuses for Brandi, but she joins a few A-listers who have gone commando and have been caught on camera panty-less. Anne Hathaway and Eva Longoria are two recent ones. God forbid they should have a panty lines showing under their designer gowns. They’d rather show the world their vajayjays than have that happen.

      • djprincessc says:

        I know they do!! I didn’t know those celebs you mentioned have, but I know the younger ones like Paris, Lindsey and so on have but at least they have the excuse of being young?? IDK it was worse for me bc of Brandi being older and having 2 boys. I still love her, but lost a little respect for her. Why not wear a thong?? or seamless panties?

                    I did see Gretchen’s pics a few years ago-I could have lived my whole life without ever seeing them-same with Brandi-I ain’t clicking that link for all the money in the world!!!

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I clicked….I saw pics of her from this same night on DailyMail but they were talking about how bad her feet looked-bunions and what have you….they didn’t travel north to discuss these parts shown here!!!

                • djprincessc says:

                  Didn’t she say that Eddie gave her HPV warts and she had to have them lasered off?? M aybe thats why it looks weird too. lol.

                  • TexasTart says:

                    dj, dj, djp, well you picked the right day to balance out the penis images, didn’t you. Yes, I looked and I do not see anything weird. However, let it be noted how contorted her crossed legs are – wbich vives the illusion parts are not exactly aligned..if that makes sense. And djp, what the hell with calling this a vagina?! Yo, it’s just the outside skin with some ‘beard’ growth, lol. You crack me up, djp 😀

                  • TexasTart says:

                    Correction**which gives the illusion**

                • kit9 says:

                  Yeah, her feet are what looked awful. That one is practically deformed.

    • Powell says:

      I thought the women in Hollywood stopped doing the “Brittney Spears”? Put some underwear on ladies…….

    • Rebecca says:

      So THIS is why Leann went on Chelsea lately and kept repeating that she wasn’t wearing panties!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      ARGH!!!!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        the pic is from the day before LR went on-that would mean she had to know that day that Brandi flashed her rejuvied vagina as soon as it happened…isn’t she too busy turning Brandi’s son against her and keeping them away from the phone to find out if Brandi is flashing her parts to the paparazzi?

        • Rebecca says:

          It sounds like she wakes up everyday and goes straight to twitter. Yes, she had to know about Brandi’s flash.

          Ick!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I find the whole thing comical-it’s not like Brandi invented going pantyless and its not like LR flashed her vagina to the Chelsea Lately crowd-I think most of this Brandi/LR crap is coincidence and nonsense….but I know I’m probably the only person in the world who thinks that. I don’t find Brandi original enough to copy. If you look at what most people in LA are wearing they all look like Brandi and LR…it’s not like either one has their own style.

      • djprincessc says:

        OMG you’re SO SMART REBECCA!! It does make sense!!! Leann is CRAZY!! NO wonder why Brandi can’t stand her! PYSCHO!

    Great blogs. Thanks guys. Yesterday’s too Mel. Thanks.

  50. princesspindy says:

    I always thought the rule of strippers was NO TOUCHIE, you NO TOUCHIE ME, I NO TOUCHIE YOU!!! I can’t imagine the hospital bill the guy who tried to do that to me would have…. I mean SERIOUSLY WHO DOES THAT???? When I think of strippers, and I rarely do, I think of Chippendales or Thunder Down Under, ya know, HUNKS!! Those were just Hunks of Junk!!!

  51. TexasTart says:

    Oh my Stars! I should have taken heed to Stars warning! 😮 While I am working and avoiding the blog, I keep thinking about the recap – which is why I should have never read it! LOL! Somewhat in disbelief at all that was containted in the episode and it keeps coming back to me – did I actually read that Vicki said that a big honkin dildo was for “put it up Eddie’s butt?!” Is that the one that is blurred out? ROTFL! Despite how disgusting this episode seems; I am sorry, no I am not – that is the funniest thing I’ve EVER heard on the OC and maybe partially because how I feel about Eddie, lol. I keep laughing to myself, someone slap me. I might have to see/hear that part to get it out of my system. Help me snap out of it! 😛

  52. boston02127 says:

    O/T Today on my way home I stopped at the cemetery. My mother is buried on top of a hill. We all have family plates in the ground there (even me). As you go down the hill (grass) they buried someone new. Well they drove over my mothers plaque to get there and broke the marble that goes around it. You could see the truck tire marks. I was so pissed & hurt but I’m afraid to say anything because I don’t want the workers there getting in trouble and taking it out on my mothers plaque. I don’t know what to do. I have the piece that is broke, I took it home.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I’m sorry that happened Boston…I hope someone here knows what you should do-I do not so I will send you some love and a hug!!

    • princesspindy says:

      They have already broken it…you need to tell whoever is in charge that they need to replace it, you might want to take pictures before you do so that you have proof of the tire marks…

      • boston02127 says:

        I didn’t think to take pic’s. I’ll go back tomorrow and do that.

        • princesspindy says:

          Boston, my first reaction is to fix, and I didn’t tell you how sorry I am that this happened…I was thinking about this while I ran some errands and I truly believe, as a mom, that your mom would not want you to be too upset about this. It will be repaired but please try and not let this get you down. (((Boston)))

    • Nancy says:

      Oh boston…I would probably talk to them in a few days. (((boston)))

    • Stars99 says:

      Hi Boston… I’m so sorry that happened… Go with your gut… I’m sure you’ll handle it well… My heart goes out to you – a couple days ago was the anniversary of my mom’s death… it’s been several years for me – but I still find myself very mentascental this time of year.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Tell the cemetery. They’ll reprimand their workers, but the workers should know to be careful and not drive on monuments. The workers were in the wrong. The cemetery will repair the damage, but they may need the missing piece if they can cement it back on. Cemetery workers and owners are generally very considerate and they’ll fix this with no fuss at all. And they’ll teach their digging people to be more careful.

      Would your mother find this amusing? It might help to think about what her reaction would be. I say that because my dear cousin’s husband was lying in state (and I was about to head over to the funeral home) when the tornado sirens went off. They all went to the basement of the funeral home, and my cousin debated asking if they could bring his casket downstairs with them. She didn’t want him to go flying. Later we all had a big laugh at what his reaction to this would have been, as he had a great sense of humor.

      • BB says:

        I’m sorry but I’m picturing him “going flying” and finding it amusing. Kind of like Mary Richards couldn’t stop herself from laughing at Chuckles the Clown’s funeral.

    • BB says:

      (((((boston))))) I would say something to the cemetery people. They can figure out how it happened. I’m sure if the graves are close together, that’s not the first time this has happened. They need to fix it.

    • djprincessc says:

      I’m so sorry Boston, that makes me so sad 😦
      XOXO.

    • VV says:

      (((boston)))

    • AZGirl says:

      That is terrible and disrespectful. They should repair or replace. Let the cemetery know what happened.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Say something love. I really think they will be sensitive to this and make it right. This is their business and will take care of it.

    • Powell says:

      boston I’m so sorry. I’m sure that was very shocking. You have to tell the manager/owner. This may not be the 1st or last time they do this. It was more than likely an accident but they are not being careful. And they nerd to replace the plate. I’m sorry. I hope you’re going to be alright. I don’t want you to be sad.

      • boston02127 says:

        The plate that her name is on is ok, around the plaque is marble then stone. It’s the marble that was broken.

        • Exit4 says:

          Definitely say something. Accidents happen and the workers should be told about it. Likely, whoever supervises them may not know and they should, so it doesn’t happen again. I know what you mean about getting people in trouble, but any business owner who cares about what they do, wants to be aware of issues so they can nip them in the bud.

        • NJBev says:

          Boston, I’m sorry that this happened. As if you don’t have enough
          on your plate. Just tell them you expect them to repair or replace.
          They won’t give you hard time.

    • Exit4 says:

      When my dad died, my mom got a plate too. With her date of birth and a – sign to be filled in later. That still creeps my husband out! My explanation that Irish people only discuss death and weather did not help!

    Stars that was a one heck of a funny recap and thank you for the warning.

      Thanks, Ramona… I still laugh every single time I see your name… and i do love to see your name around here! = )

  54. Powell says:

    I am watching HLN & they’re showing the Zimmerman trial jury selection. The Prosecutor asked a lady what kind of shows she watches. She said CSI & you won’t guess what else? RJONJ. The Prosecutor laughed, the gallery laughed, the potential jury laughed. Can you imagine saying you watch HWs as a prospective juror?

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Powell,
      That ex-cop, wife killer was found GUILTY today!!!!! Now his two children will not have
      either of their parents as he won’t be up for parol until he’s 85.

      • Powell says:

        I know Nancy. All I could think of is those little boys now w/o parents. I don’t understand how spouses do this to their children. They always think they will get away w/it. The wifes family will be on Nancy Grace tonight.

    • Laineylainey says:

      I’d be embarrassed to eggmit that. But if I swear to tell the troof…then I have to tell he troof.

      • princesspindy says:

        Can you imagine eggmitting what you really watch….thank goodness I have been watching some quality tv online to balance out the crap!!

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          If I ever had to eggmit to half the crap I watch on TV I would never be on any jury…they would bring me straight to the loony bin!!!

        • BB says:

          If asked, I would definitely mention the PBS/BBC shows I’ve been watching rather than the Bravo shows. I wonder what they would think about The Walking Dead cause that’s my fav. And also Duck Dynasty. What a combination. Lol.

          • Powell says:

            Right BB. You would say you watch local news, national/international news, PBS/BBC, movies, dramas, comedies and leave reality tv last.

          • princesspindy says:

            LOL! I would tell them “My name is Princess Pindy and currently I am watching a delightful show on PBS “Call The Midwife” that my dear friend Baroness Beachcomer recommended!” Ya think I would get on the jury??

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Oh I see-you guy with your titles-you think can you fool people into believing that you don’t watch drivel on TV…Princess Baroness….with titles like that who would think you watch anything but PBS!!!! (Note to self-getting a title will not save you-too much drivel has fried your brain!!)

              • princesspindy says:

                I think they would send me to the looney bin if I ever said that in court, lol!

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Don’t worry PP…I will be in the loony bin with you!!!

                  • princesspindy says:

                    How fun would that be, do you think they would let us watch HWs?? lol!! Oh, and I would make sure I mention that I watch Jeopardy every night, for the last 35 years!

                    Actually, I would probably show up with a HUGE Bible and a large print copy of Death Wish!!!

      • Powell says:

        But you can just eggmit that you watch reality shows instead of saying which ones. 🙂

    Has anyone watched Renovation Raiders on HGTV?They renovate a room in the homeowners house while they’re out to dinner. I watched it last week. It’s a fun show.

  60. Powell says:

    LR was on GMA this morning & I believe another show. I saw just a glimpse on the internet that she was asked if she had any regrets & she said something to the affect that she doesn’t believe in regrets. That’s really a shame. She ruined her husband’s life & she ruined 2 little boys life w/their parents together. Even though we know Eddie & Brandi were having problems & the divorce just wasn’t LeAnn’s fault but she doesn’t even have compassion in her heart to have regrets about hurting people.

    • iceNfire says:

      She is going to be on WW in the morning. In a preview clip she says something like “I’m not a liar” … Really? She didn’t lie to her husband when she was cheating on him? She didn’t lie to Brandi when she first met her? Or maybe none of that counts…

    And this is why I will always HATE Gretchen and Slade. Grayson`s mom posted this on Facebook today. While she is actually the one taking care of Gray (understatement of the year) Busted Barbie Gretchen and Deadbeat Slade cry about how hard it is on THEM:
    Everything below this is not my words, but Michelle`s:

    I cannot tell a lie….things have been rough. Gray was scheduled for an MRI last month and his pulmonologist was requiring an in patient stay for anesthesia because she has only seen him once and considers his lungs ‘deteriorating,’ which I cannot imagine is accurate since I have seen dramatic improvement at home. So, we had to reschedule so that we could get him properly assessed and scheduled prior to the MRI. He is now a month late on his routine MRI which would not be worrisome except he started with a bad headache last Saturday. He requires oxygen 24 hours a day and still has his tracheostomy, which is a lot in and of itself to care for and manage with all the required medical equipment. In addition to the left knee contracture he has bilateral ankle contractures which all require eight hours of splinting a day. We are still in desperate need of an RN Case Manager and qualified Pediatric LVN’s, which as I have found is a lot of politics (big business) and a huge hinderance to proper patient care. His Rehab consists of 4 hours of PT; 3 hours of Oral Motor/Facial Stimulation; two hours of Occupational therapy; 5 hours of home schooling which is fun and integrates a little bit of everything for him, along with cognitive recall, for his short term memory loss, and this is all in his week. We also routinely schedule fun, weekly visits with his art and fun mentor, Bridget, and everyone else who calls and bugs me to have a play date with The G-Man! I am trying to balance it all, being Mom, Doctor Mom, Nurse Mom, Rehab Mom, PICC Line Management Mom, Phlebotomist Mom, Lab Analysis Review Mom, Pain Management Mom, Skin Assessment/Care Mom, Diaper Changer Extraordinaire Mom, Ketogenic Nutritional Specialist Mom, RN Case Manager Mom, Nurse Interviewer/Background Check Mom, Research Potential Treatments Mom, Human Resources Medical Care Coordinator (hire and fire medical professionals as necessary) Mom, Insurance Liaison Mom, Pharmacist Mom, Lunatic Mom…..and I am too exhausted to remember the rest Mom. That is how we survive here, day by day, but we live every moment to its best. Gray has been working super hard to start standing on his feet even though their position is very difficult with his knee and ankle contractures. He is determined to get moving again, and our goal is to have him up and mobile by the end of this month, with a walker or assistive device. We have come a long way baby, it has been eight months, definitely a marathon and not a sprint.

    Keep beLIeVEing in our miracle~

              i LOVE wEN!!
              Just found out it does have Sulfites in it so I can’t use it,
              and I have at least 8 unopened bottles!!!!! PMOff

              I got 1/2 head of the Keratin treatment for frizzies, now my hair
              is like limp noodles and I can’t even use my fave shampoo.

              • iceNfire says:

                Thanks for info. Catseye…I’m a Wen girl too!

                • iceNfire says:

                  NJBev – why only 1/2 of your head?

                  • NJBev says:

                    Ice- I have very fine hair and the top layer
                    is damaged and frizzes horribly in humidity.
                    It is great when no humidity, so I’m not so
                    sure I should have done it, as now there
                    is no body whatsoever. I’m going to wait
                    to pass judgement until after my next cut-

              • chismosa says:

                Wait, WEN has sulfites? I thought their whole premise was that they were sulfites free?

                • Catseye says:

                  I think L’Oreal has a version now that is supposed to be Sulfate free. Either way, I still love WEN, I tried Hair ONE and Lisa Rachael that I got from Amazon, they’re supposed to be cheaper versions of WEN. But I still prefer WEN. As a matter of fact, I just bought a gallon from QVC, it’s only available in June (and on Easy Pay too!).

                • NJBev says:

                  Chi-I called QVC and asked
                  customer service. They
                  verified it contained
                  Sulfites.

                  • chismosa says:

                    WEN???? But they claim in the commercial they don’t. I have to rewatch Chaz Dean again.
                    Amazing.
                    Thanks

    Chloe on the TV show Dance Moms is a great dancer. She’s so graceful for her age.

  67. TexasTart says:

    Does anyone watch WIG?! How is her show this season? I just flipped to Bravo from the NBA and there was Kim, bigger than life…

    • Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

      only accidentally 🙂

    • AZGirl says:

      I watched it over the weekend. Episode about Christmas and it was really darling. That baby boy of Kim’s is just too cute. Looks just like Kroy. Kroy decorates outside for Christmas and gets a real tree. Kim has never had a real christmas tree. Kroy also gets a bunch of arts and crafts and the girl make ornaments.

      • chismosa says:

        That’s so sad that she grew up in Connecticut (right?) and never had a real tree???

        WIG

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          WIG went in the bathroom last night and removed her IUD….she said it was making her crazy-giving her ADD…..she is crazy and dumb.she thinks b/c she was breast feeding she couldn’t get pregnant and she believes “pulling out” is an effective for of birth control…ummmm is she 16????

          • Powell says:

            If that’s what she thinks I feel sorry for her girls.

          • Orson says:

            Here’s a handy bit of information to relay to your tweens and teens: Physicians have a name for couples who use the withdrawal method of birth control. They call those couples “parents”.

      • Powell says:

        That was fun. I kept yelling at the tv “Kim, give & take. Kroy has the right to decorate some of how he likes holiday decor”.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I’m watching it and actually am liking it better this season than last. She still cusses like a logger but there is something different about her. She’s not as bad to take as before.

  68. djprincessc says:

    HI NMD just a quick question. And I’m seriously asking bc I want to know but was I NOT supposed to put that link up about Brandi?? I saw you removed it and thats fine of course but I want to know since it was a link to another page, its not like I posted the actual picture of her here (and would never do that) so people had to actually chose to see it or not. Kinda confused if there are rules as to links we can post? Thanks!! 🙂

  69. designernailsdiana says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY VALLEYVAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. chismosa says:

    Reminder to anyone who sees this– Leann is on Wendy Williams today and I don’t know why she’s wearing a sweatsuit ?????

    I think it’s pre-taped. Wendy has a short WIG and a black and white dress

    But what the heck is up with sweatsuit on Leann?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I’m sure someone is rushing to the Internet right now to scour pictures of Brandi in hopes that they find one of her in a sweatsuit!!!!

    • Powell says:

      I am watching. She lied. She did not tell the truth at first. She & Eddie were in a full blown affair and she got on tv, the Today Show & lied right to Matt Lauer’s face

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        She should make Eddie go on these shows with her b/c he is as big of a home wrecker as she is-in fact he is worse b/c he had kids. I don’t know why people want to burn LR at the stake but not Eddie-to me he is more disgusting than anyone involved with this mess -I see Brandi’s band of followers always going after LR like she alone ruined the family-I think it’s b/c they know Brandi is still in love with Eddie and they don’t want to bash him!! He is getting off way too easy in my eyes….

        • chismosa says:

          EXCELLENT points
          👏👏
          😀

        • realhousewifeva says:

          I think because Leann is just as obsessed with social media as Brandi, that people have easier access to her than Eddie. Let`s not pretend that Leann didn`t do a lot of dirty work prior to Brandi being on the show…she just never thought Brandi would one day have as big a platform as she did to retaliate, IMO. She did a lot of lowdown dirty things through her twitter fans and employees to get at Brandi, did interview after interview and even wrote an album about it, but then wants it all to go away and go back to her music– on her terms? I think once Brandi`s book came out, and she exposed all her dirty laundry on her own, there was nothing more for the LR minions to attack Brandi about and now it`s all suddenly “I don’t want any part of this drama”.

          In the end, though, it’s old news anyway. lol

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I think they both did a lot of dirty crap on twitter- both of them plus Brandi fans and LR fans-and they still do today. I feel like the fans keep the feud alive b/c if it goes away their twitter followers will have nothing to do all day!!! I wish they would both shut up-or even just one of them!! If one shuts up the other doesn’t exist-they need each other for the publicity-they love and crave it.

        • Powell says:

          He is more disgusting because he was a serial cheater when he was married to Brandi & he’s continuing to let LR & his ex fight it out on Twitter & in the media & he just sits back. It would all stop if he would put his big boy pants on & put a stop to it. He will regret it.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Powell-I don’t think big boy pants would help-I don’t think anything or anyone would make these 2 stop with the twitter wars and publicity seeking…..not even the kids.

        • Catseye says:

          I agree Jill!! And after reading about some of the details in Brandi’s book of how he disrespected her and their wedding vows, he is nothing but a sleaze that doesn’t deserve any woman.

      • chismosa says:

        Oh wow ……

        And Matt Lauer is doing her interview ? He seems to let the other peeps there handle the reality “stars”

        Well, she’s a very well known singer so maybe that’s why

        • Powell says:

          I don’t know if he is interviewing her now but when he did yrs ago when the affair was brought to light by the paparazzi she lied to him.

    • Powell says:

      Listen to her. She’s such a liar. She doesn’t want to stop attacking Brandi just as much as Brandi doesn’t want to stop. Liar, liar pants on fire.

  71. Lulu says:

    Hello everyone!! What a day so far! #1 has been keeping me very busy. I made the mistake of bringing out one of his train sets. Forgot it’s the annoying one that keeps falling apart. I inevitably hear “mommy! mommy!” Mental note when #1 is asleep throw it in the garbage or better yet burn it!! Aiden’s test results came back he doesn’t have conjunctivitis just “skin bacteria.” Dr believes its 100% block tear ducts which #1 had it’s easy to treat. What a day!

    • BB says:

      LuLu. Sorry you’re having to deal with a medical issue with your new baby. It’s hard enough having a newborn baby and a toddler without that. Glad they got it all straightened out finally.

    • Powell says:

      LOL Lulu w/throwing out that train. I hope he doesn’t miss it. I’m glad you gave us an update on Aiden cause I was going to ask today. I’m glad he will be ok & you know what to do to treat it. Whew. You have had a busy day. 🙂

    • Orson says:

      Did you get the extended warranty on the lad? I think, in the long run, it’s worth the money.

  72. designernailsdiana says:

    My Dad is doing as good as you can with one eye and dim vision in the only eye he has. He has mowed over a set of solar lights in the front yard and the hose also hit the dogs chain. Thankfully he hasn’t hurt himself, but he insists only he can mow the grass. I don’t dare take another thing away from him. He cherishes his independence so much. The dog Pearly Girl is doing better so she will now walk in the neighborhood to go pee and poo. She still is afraid of other people and dogs on her walks, but she’s making progress.
    Since being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia I’ve been trying everything to help with the leg cramps and fatigue. I went back to another Nurse Practitioner and she suggested some other therapies to try. I’m dragging by the time 2:00 p.m. hits and I just want to go to bed as soon as I get home. I’m eating crap and don’t care. That part scares me because I’m already obese. I go to the gym once or twice a week to get my smack down from my trainer. She’s a sweetie and I make her laugh.
    I’m learning about Fibro Fog( not the Jodi Arias type of fog. lol) It happens when you forget things like words or how to do something you know already. I’ve raised 3 kids with either epilepsy or ADHD so I find I use the same tricks to never LOSE my stuff or forget where I put something. That has helped me a LOT so my fibro fog is not as sever as it could be if I didn’t already do those tricks.
    I will blog the Princesses if you all can wait a few days for me to watch the episode a few times and then write it. Now I know why I struggled with blogging Bethenny’s show last summer. I want to be detailed yet funny (Stars I strive to be as witty as you my dear).
    My DH has been working on his rest (railroad terminology for as soon as his 10-12 hrs off is reached) and he’s been going out of town so he’s gone for 2 nights. This leaves me alone to do household stuff and taking care of my Dad who I affectionately now call MrGreenThumb when I do my foursquare check-ins with him in tow. My DS has been a blessing as he picks Grandpa up from work and takes him home. My Dad is 81 and still works 15 hours a week. 12-3 but he loves this pocket change for his lottery and horse races. He enjoys gambling. I never enjoyed betting my hard earned money on anything but clothes, groceries and my hair.
    My DD #1 has been diagnosed with kidney stones that are from Oxalate in foods so she has to change her eating habits completely.
    My DD #2 misses us since she moved out last month and calls me every night almost. Usually when I’m trying to watch a dvr’d show. She has irritable bowel syndrome. My DH says all his girls have health issues and he just has allergies. Off to work he goes as soon as he says that sentence. I just laugh now because I know if I’m going to ER he’s going to work.
    Don’t mean to be a debbie downer that’s just what my life is right now.
    I’m depressed and unhappy with my body, but I LOVE coming here to read what everyone says.
    I Love my LynnFam!!!
    Blessings,
    Diana

    • BB says:

      (((((Diana))))) It helps to unload sometimes so don’t worry about being a Debbie Downer. If we didn’t care, we wouldn’t ask how you are doing. Hope things get better. I can relate to the weight thing. If we could get the weight off, the other stuff would be so much easier for us to deal with, but sometimes it’s the very stuff we’re dealing that causes the weight gain or weight retention. Am I making sense? It’s like going in a circle and not getting anywhere.

      • BB says:

        Ugh dealing “with”

      • Nancy says:

        BB…we should start a diet/support group page on this blog as so many of us want to lose weight. My RSD medication has caused me to put on some weight and I can’t stand it. Maybe if we all did it together we could be successful.

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Diana…Here is an on-line support group for Fibromyalgia. I belong to one for RSD
      and it has really helped. There are many of them so if you don’t like this one you might pick another one. 🙂 Hang in there. (((Diana)))
      http://www.livingwithfibro.org/

    • Powell says:

      Diana its good that your dad is doing as well as an be expected. Pearly Girl is learning to cope with changes too.
      I suppose you have to keep trying different techniques to ease your discomfort as much as possible. And I think you have the right to feel moppy at times if you want to. As far as you blogging Princesses I personally don’t want you to be commited & stretch yourself with all you have on your plate but if you feel you can do it I know it will be fun for me & everyone.

    • Catseye says:

      Diana, just a suggestion but have you considered the Master Cleanse, at all? I stuck to it for 3 days and felt terrific. Then I morphed into eating once a day and drinking my lemonade/pepper stuff the rest of the day. I have lost and kept off 24 lbs!! (AND I ate pizza, even sweets here and there, but ONLY 1 meal a day). I also suffer from chronic pain due to Osteoporosis and numerous metal implants, plus inoperable (due to arthritis) synovial cyst in my lower back. Getting the weight off helped the pain and I recently was prescribed something called Gabapentin that helps me sleep through the night, it also helps with mood.
      For your daughter’s kidney stones, look into having her eat Parsley. Someone else suggested it and it is supposed to be a very good, even for pets.
      Best of luck to you and your family.

      • Catseye says:

        P.S. From what I have learned about fasting is that it forces your body into a “healing/repairing” vs. “growing” mode and just might help with your pain too.

      • chismosa says:

        Catseye in hearing this more and more about fasting.

        Ps it’s so funny, last night I’m reading the blog to catch up and one of the hair removal items you mentioned shows a commercial !
        The Fast and Free or something flash or something – by the sensipil? It looked good, though I would want to wear goggles I think.
        I will have more questions for you on this later on!
        It was just so funny

    • iceNfire says:

      (((Diana))) a debbie downer you are Not! Thanks for keeping us informed … I’ve been wondering whatever happened with WhatsHerName from Lurkdom that was in need of help with wicked stepmother of a cousin with a fake will and uncle the was buried in the wrong State??? I need updates! Since you are happy here…stay longer and post more often 🙂

    • Laineylainey says:

      Hi sweet Diana! I am so glad you came online to share how you have been feeling lately. I hope you’ll utilize the link Nancy provided and I also hope you’ll be encouraged in knowing that we are here for you! I had to laugh when you said you are eating crap lately. I was polishing off a Freddy’s mini turtle concrete and nearly coked on the cherry. I need to do better and I will think of you trying to do better and I will be encouraged by that. Hang in there (((dnd)))

  73. BB says:

    Random question. Do people really care about January Jones, Kim K or even Michelle Obama getting bangs? I can see how it might fun to see pictures of what they are wearing or I could even see talk about drastic hair color changes or if one of them went from really long to really short hair. But bangs? Really?

    • melthehound says:

      Not one bit. I don’t know who one of them is and couldn’t care less about the other two, regardless of their hair styles.

    • Powell says:

      When “Stars” get bangs or whatever new hairstyle I’m like that’s nice but then its next. I don’t understand why the mags keep harping on it.

    • lillybee says:

      I don’t care myself.

    • princesspindy says:

      I had considered cutting bangs, I cut them, then grown them out… anyway my stylist (PBB) was standing there and said, “Mom, it’s summer” and I said, “Duh” and she said, “You’re going to be swimming and it’s going to be hot, do you really want to deal with bangs?”

      Bangs are for winter not summer, IPPHO (aided by the thought process of Princess Beanie Boo!)

      • Powell says:

        LOL PrincessP. I had bangs yrs ago & loved them for a while & was so happy when they grew out. I’ll neverr get bangs again. They do take maintenance. You wouldn’t think so.

  74. BB says:

    Off to Belk (Modern, Southern, Style) for some window shopping. Probably won’t buy anything.

  75. shamrockblonde says:

    *hugs Diana really gently but with much love* – I don’t see you as a Debbie Downer – there was no whining in your post – in fact there was simple praise and love for all of those in your life – you even considered yourself lucky for having develped tools to help you with your fibromyalga from helping your children deal with their health issues – it takes someone with a mighty heart to find the positive in a situation like that – sounds like a warrior to me – stay strong, dear one, and remember that we are right there beside you –

    as for WIG – *loves that name* – I watch it when I can – I actually don’t mind Kim – her kids are all beautiful and it is fun watching her interact with them – I think Kroy is good for her – I like his down home style and it is clear that the girls love him and he them – speaking from experience, that’s not as easy as you might imagine –

    • iceNfire says:

      I enjoy Wig’s show! It’s so nice to get some semblance of reality on a reality tv show. No fake friends or bs fights

      • pat says:

        Her daughters crack me up and the boys are adorbs. Yeah it has a refreshingly less scripted feel.

        Nice gravatar. At first I thought it was Judith from The Voice.

      • Powell says:

        Right ice. No fights. I have always liked Kim but not all tge things she’s done. I wish she would stop cursing so much. An eff here & there every once in a while, ok. But its eff this & eff that. I want them to show more & more how Kroy is showing & instilling his values & traditions cause Kim is very selfish at times. I want to see Kim comprise more. I love that Kroy put his foot down on Brielle getting a car when her grades sucked.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I like that the show isn’t about fighting but it does seem quite fake and set up…plus Kim is a bigger dimwit this season than I ever thought possible!! Who talks about “pulling out” as a form of birth control when they have daughters who are watching the show….stupid and irresponsible!!!!!

    • Laineylainey says:

      Isn’t it funny, Rocky (short for Shamrock)? Isn’t it funny how the kids on the WIG show for the most part are so cute, sweet and adorable…whereas the kid scenes on NJ just rub the wrong way? Interesting…

  76. AZGirl says:

    Good Afternoon everyone! Well, Mr. AZGirl brought his Kindle out to the pool last night and watch Pepper. I guess my message was clear.
    @Diana: Talk to the Nurse Practitioner about a diet that would be beneficial not only for your fibromyalga but also to lose weight. Personally, I am a huge Weight Watchers fan. I have seen more success with WW. It is easy and adaptable to everyday life.
    Hope you feel better.

    • Powell says:

      Someone went in the bedroom & thought about what his wife said. I think you’re going to have to see how long that lasts or keep driving the point for it to stick. I hope it lasts for everyone’s sake.

  77. Powell says:

    On GMA this morning & just now on HLN they were talking about are high heels worth it ? And that we can really only wear them for about an hr before they start hurting. On GMA the reporter had her foot xrayed with her foot in her heel & her foot out of her heel. The doc told her heels pinch our nerves. I love heels. I can’t wear over 3 inches, but I love flats also & wear them more.

  78. shamrockblonde says:

    being 5 ft 2 inches tall, I’ve worn heels longer than I can remember – high ones – but now I stick mostly to a shoe that has a stacked sole and a somewhat thick heel – better to walk on – the stilletoes are too easy for me to stumble in while the thicker heel gives me more support – my calves actually hurt when I wear a smaller heel – like a kitten heel – flats are good, barefoot is my fave though –

    • Powell says:

      Shamrock I’m 4 ft 11 & have never cared about “don’t you want to look taller?”. I want to be comfortable. If my feet hurt I’m not happy. I’ve heard some models & actresses say “who cares if your feet hurt. You are looking good”. That’s a crock.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        It is a crock-when my feet hurt I want to punch someone…I always have my flip flops in my bag when I wear heels….JIC!!!!

        • Powell says:

          Ouch. Look out. Please don’t leave home w/o those flip flops. 🙂 But I totally get it. My whole body hurts when my feet hurt.

      • Rebecca says:

        Damn you women are short. I buy five-inch platforms because 6 feet tall is where I need to be. I’m the short one in my fambly.

        • pat says:

          🙂 Girls, try some heels with a little platform. They are tots comfortable, and your man will love it. At least mine does.

        • Laineylainey says:

          5’2and 3/4″ over here. Don’t forget the 3/4. Oh and my man is 6’5″ We do look funny together. 29 years of looking funny. Haha!

    Good Afternoon! I see we’re stuck on the OC’s blog….better go get hand sanitizer! BRB!

    • Powell says:

      Yes. I finished it up this morning. At least no one was fighting & crying. And you need eye sanitizer too. 🙂

  80. TexasTart says:

    Something is excessively dragging down the refresh and typing rate when I am at this website – to the point I can’t deal. I am typing about ten words ahead of what I can see. 😕 So I will just say one more thing and come back later.

        • melthehound says:

          Sometimes, just restarting the browser will help. I know with videos, the blog, Facebook (chat), my computer begins to hyperventilate as if it’s going to die. I happens when the applications are demanding too much memory time and the fans kick on. At that point, I’m typing one character (not word) per second at best. The mouse pointer sputters across the screen.. Browser restart usually cures that.

    • djprincessc says:

      ME too! TT, and its been happening for a few weeks now. I thought it was just me. Its pretty annoying.

    • Powell says:

      I didn’t watch the whole show but she was cute and funny. NJ- Mel, Caro & Jac were on. Anna asked Mel being a family couldn’t they work their on their family better off the show. Mel said being on the show they actually could do it better. Something to that affect & I was like huh? That was better? Someone asked about selling the house & moving. Mel said it was because of all the rumors & talk she wasn’t ready to explain it to the kids so that’s the main reason for moving. Huh? Ok. I guess she’s sticking to that story. Sheri asked Caro why she’s not making nice w/Dina but is trying to help Tre & Joey? She said both of them have to want to work it out. She’s one of 11 kids. I guess that meant someone is always mad at someone. I turned before Jac spoke.

      Handsome John Stamos was on an Anna was swooning. He sat next to her & she said she feels like she’s sitting next to him on a plane w/the Greek yogurt. Something like that. John put on his glasses to read something & Anna swooned again. She was too funny. She said “we have 5 girls at home”. I thought she just had the 2 daughters.

      • TexasTart says:

        Sounds like you changed the channel just in time 😉 I had no idea some NJ ladies would be on there! Sounds like Mel is full of it. Oh, how nice to have John Stamos there! Sounds like she came across good. Ana has 2 daughters and the other 3 are her boyfriends 3 daughters and they live together now.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I love John Stamos-from back in the General Hospital days!! Maggie is obsessed with watching Full House reruns which is fine with me b/c Uncle Jessie is my Fave!!!!

  81. BB says:

    Back from Belk. They had some really good sales. I bought some tops, a pair of capris, some jammies and a couple of pieces of costume joolry. So much for not buying anything! Lol.

    NANCY, a diet/health/nutrition page might be a good idea. At least we could exchange some tips that are working for us and good low cal recipes we’ve tried. I’ll shoot NMD an e-mail and suggest it. I agree with AZGirl, that WW is about the best thing out there if you’re really serious about losing weight. I’ve been successful on WW before, but the problem I have is KEEPING it off.

    • Nancy says:

      Thanks BB. I am going to beg my doctor to take me off these meds but until he does I agree WW is the best way.

    DJprincessc, I do not think the problem with your link was that you posted a link. People do it all the time. I think the problem was where the link went. A description of where to find it a picture might be better next time with something like that if somebody wants to point it out.

    BB…this is really cute. Dr Turner and SB.

    • Nancy says:

      Thanks BB. They did a story about this a few mons ago. After his beloved dog died and
      hearing that his wife wanted a divorce (over the phone) he didn’t see another ofter way out. Thank God he got to the ER on time to save his life. He is very much in love with
      another woman now and has a new “favorite” dog which is another pitbull. 🙂

        Daddy was such a great dog. I wish dogtown was still on.

        • Nancy says:

          He sure was. Jr has some big shoes to fill but he’s such an adorable little thing.
          Did you see the painting someone did of Daddy? Cesar was blown away.

        • BB says:

          I enjoyed watching Dog Town. It didn’t seem to last very long.

      • chismosa says:

        I don’t know, I found him kind of rough

        I subscribe more to the positive reinforcement philosophy? I feel like I used to read a lot from his detractors and it stuck with me

        Of course I feel bad for his mental issues.
        This guy must be such a billionaire. I hope he donates to no kill shelters and rescue organizations and anti puppy mill people.
        Also he should have a house large enough to own like 20 dogs easily.
        I don’t know he annoys me for some reason

  84. Nancy says:

    Good look Blackhawks and Bruins. May the best team win. 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      @nurse Nancy— paging Nancy– i have a health question– if you don’t mind, even if you ‘get to me’ after your game!— , so should i go to the new health page? It’s for my 77 year old father– he just got pink eye (from my g**-da*ned brother) and then got diagnosed with strep today. I am very anti-anti-biotics.

      Let me know where i may ask you– can i direct it to NMD’s new health page?

      • Catseye says:

        I would use Colloidal Silver. I don’t like antibiotics either, I think I had an overgrowth of Candida Yeast in my system, from having to use intravenous Cipro thru a picc line for months, after getting infected with 3 different types of bacteria following major back surgery several years ago.

        • chismosa says:

          Hi Catseye—
          Well he went to the doctor and got antibiotics. Amoxycyllin.
          My QUESTION is– can i give him the probiotics i take and he can just take that any time during the day to counteract the damage from this antibiotics?
          Or is it contra-indicated to take probiotics along with antibiotics?

          He takes a lot of medications, so he is wary of medicines. As am I!!!!
          Thanks for your advice— Colloidal— hmm. I’m going to notepad this.

          I just saw Dr. Weil on Dr. Oz last week and want to try something he suggested for acid reflux. I’m so excited.

          Thanks for your input!

          • Nancy says:

            Yes he can take both at the same time as Amox doesn’t have a broad spectrum.
            I posted something for you on the new health page.

        • BB says:

          Catseye. Are you recommending Colloidal Silver for the Pink Eye or the Strep or both? I thought it was for external use.

        • Nancy says:

          OMG you poor thing. Do they know what caused the infections?

  90. BB says:

    Freddie’s a selling machine!

  91. Powell says:

    DJP there is a bunch of Hello Kitty makeup on sale at,Sephora. You’re gonna have fun deciding. Gosh I’m such a girl. I go cookoo nuts for makeup. 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      I love Sephora and I never knew that that was a woman’s first name – I think in Dutch. I never knew where they got the name from

      • Powell says:

        I didn’t know that. Have you been to Ulta? It’s like Sephora but they also sell drug store brand makeup & items and the have a hair salon in the back. I love this store too.

        • chismosa says:

          Yes Ulta is good too. There are some brands that both carry. Never went to the salon for anything but i know i always used to go to Ulta for nail stuff but now my CVS carries them (Essie nail polish stuff)
          Both are great. Ulta has great hair stuff. Large range. coupons at least. Sephora doesn’t really offer discounts.

          • Powell says:

            Sephora has good sales & good product sets that are reasonably priced like you get 3 items for the price of two.

            • chismosa says:

              Oh ok I have to look into that Powell, thanks.
              I never do the “insider” stuff so I think I should

    • djprincessc says:

      Yes Powell! I saw upthread! I love Sephora too I have wayyyy too many points! lol

  92. BB says:

    That lady from Idaho is having trouble talking, I think due to botox or lip injections or something.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      She seemed a bit hungover….maybe a bit drunky from the night before???? I wonder how her husband will feel watching her grope Ryan!!!!

  93. Powell says:

    I’m watching Imitation of Life on TCM. I’ve seen this movies dozens if times. This is my fav Lana Turner film.

  94. BB says:

    Looks like Luis is coming up with another one of his harebrained ideas.

  95. lillybee says:

    People near Chicago, stay safe I understand that your are is going to be getting a nasty storm.

  97. AZGirl says:

    MDLNY; Luis is a minnow to Fredrik the Shark . I was absolutely embarrassed for Fredrik. Fog machine. Are you kidding me? Ryan’s client situation was totally scripted.
    Go Blackhawks!!!
    Everyone in Chicago/Indiana/Michigan stay safe

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      AZ-Ryan’s thing was very fake-especially the talk at the restaurant!!!

  98. chismosa says:

    i haven’t watched Frederik’s show yet– ha ha— but can someone tell me if Ryan’s eyes are blue or hazel or green? I see pictures of him online and in magazines and he seems to have BLUE in those but on the show they don’t look blue?
    Maybe his eyes change color ?
    sorry, just something that bugs me

  99. Ladebra says:

    Thank you NMD! … Now if only reading would make it so ha.

  100. Nancy says:

    End of 3rd and we have a tie so OT we go.

  101. Nancy says:

    Double OT.

  102. djprincessc says:

    I call BULL on that lady not liking Ryan! She just played it off like she didn’t like him, but she was TOTALLY serious!!

    • princesspindy says:

      She grabbed his crotch….who does that, lol!?

      • djprincessc says:

        Oh someone who DOESN’T like you and want to sleep with you AT ALL!! Come on now PP!! 😉

        I’ve never seen an older woman grab a crotch like that to a grown man, I think the last time I saw that I was 14. lol.

        • princesspindy says:

          The last time I saw that was at Chippendales with REAL strippers in 1980 and the women doing the grabbing were my friend, the bride’s, mom and friends. They were groping the waiters as they walked by, we couldn’t believe how they were acting!!!!

  103. Nancy says:

    BLACKHAWKS WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry boston. 😦

  104. TexasTart says:

    Ha, this just caught my eye again, how Lydia sounds like “the yodeling girl from the Swiss Miss Cocoa box..” Stars and her endless pop culture references, lol.

    Everytime I try to get on here, I am pulled away 😦 So I see we have a health page, will have to check that out later! 🙂 Have a good and safe day, everyone!
