What’s Next Bravo? by NMD

Hello everyone.  I’ve finally watched Seasons 1 through 5 of Mad Men.  I am completely out of touch with housewives, but hear that Joanna Krupa had a million dollar wedding (don’t really care), Brandi threatened to “cut a bitch” (really don’t care) and Aviva is whining about being a punching bag (really really don’t care).  Meanwhile Jacqueline told someone to f-off on twitter because they said she was faking her son’s storyline, and I can actually sympathize with her.  What the heck is wrong with people?  If you cross that line, what line won’t you cross when it comes to these women that we don’t even know?

My issue with housewives is that the story lines are not subtle.  Mad Men gives us complex, dark characters.  Is there anything Pete won’t do to get an account?  Was the price of the partnership worth it for Joan?  How can Don switch from decent to disgusting on a dime? They make me want to think about them – understand them, just like I used to think about the Bethenny – Jill relationship.  I don’t have to give any thought to the Tamra – Gretchen relationship.  Shallow, self-serving women trying to hide their true selves from the viewers.  Who are these women really?  They are bad actresses trying to play poorly written, unsynchronized roles where everyone wants to be the hero and no one the villain.  Joanna Krupa can have her million dollar made for TV wedding.  Tamra Barney can delay her wedding into a spinoff that no one will watch.  I’d much rather see Peggy Olson get married.  The fictional Peggy is much much much more interesting than any of Andy Cohen’s housewives.

Bravo had better figure out their next move soon, because there is only so much Gorga-Giudice-Manzo fake fighting viewer will tune in to see. Caroline and Teresa sitting down at lunch was about as believable as Don Draper being monogamous.

Luckily it is summer and we’ll have Big Brother to amuse us soon.  The blog is in need of some bloggers.  If anyone would like take on any of the new shows, including Big Brother, please let me know.

Real Housewives of New Jersey – Melissa’s Blog

by Stars99

Melissa Gorga –Melissa starts out her blog talking about Jacqueline, Chris and Nicholas.  Enough said…

“On to the subject of selling our house. I know the perception out there is that we’re doing it for one reason: to get away from the Giudices. But the truth is, we put our house on the market months before strippergate. It was a bad time to sell though because of the economy, so we took it off. When all the drama of last season started happening, we decide to put it back on.

Runs around the room with a fire extinguisher in my hand yelling, “Liar, liar panties on fire!”  You, yourself told us why you’re selling your house on last year’s reunion! Or was that also a lie?  Which lie would you like us to believe?

Why sell the house that Joe built for us from the ground up? A bunch of reasons, but mainly, I just could not stand to live one more day with that cracked sink!”

Right… Surely I heard you tell Teresa that you wanted to move because of “a cracked sink”… Because really, isn’t that how we ALL would react to a cracked sink in a multimillion dollar home?  “Gosh, our sink is cracked… What to do…What to do?  Golly, if only I knew of a contractor who could fix it… Perhaps someone who was specifically familiar with the plumbing in our house and who would do a good job because he cared about the work… Hmmm… If only I knew someone like that…Well, since I can’t come up with another solution – The only logical choice is to move so we can get away from our cracked sink.”  You’re just a lyin’ liar who lies… Do you seriously think we believe that for a second?  I honestly can’t believe she actually wrote this in her blog.  Oh, now I get it… the reason you’re not talking to Teresa is because of your “cracked sink!”  You don’t want your kids to go to school with Teresa’s kids because of your “cracked sink!”  I think that’s going to be my new explanation for things, “I’d love to get that project done for you – but unfortunately I can’t because I have a cracked sink.”

“Kidding. That sink, incidentally, is in the kids’ playroom bathroom. They were messing around in there, and broke it. It’s my fault we had it anyway. I ordered the sink online based on just a picture. Big mistake. When it arrived, Joe took one look at it and said, “What a piece of crap. I’m putting it in the kids’ playroom.” FYI: A marble replacement is on order. It won’t be cracked.”

Oh, now I get it – You were just trying to be funny. Hardee har har.  Are you really trying to get us to believe that your husband, the contractor, agreed to order a sink online – sight unseen – instead of going with a sink from one of his regular suppliers?  Wow. Okay, let me get this straight… You filmed this program several months ago and yet now, several months later – You still only have a marble replacement “on order?”  And you’re wondering why you can’t sell your house?  What an idiotic thing to say. Your whole story is cracked. And remember, crack is whack!

“Joe put his heart and soul into our house. His father wasn’t in construction. He had to teach himself how to do it on his own. He’s as proud of himself as I am of him and our home.

Oh come the freak on… This week, in Teresa’s blog, when talking about your house, she says, “But I will say their house is beautiful and very well made. Joey did a wonderful job. It’s in our blood. My father did construction in Italy and when he first came to America.”  Okay, somebody’s lying and my “Crapometer” is pointing at you, Melissa!  I’m not sure why you felt you had to say, “His father wasn’t in construction.”  Is it opposite day or are you really just a dumbass?  It’s pretty clear that Joe’s dad was in construction and he probably taught his son some stuff – but I’m sure your husband also had to learn a lot from other sources as he went along.

“The reason I pushed our broker Jerry to sell “now or never” was because of Antonia. I didn’t want her to have to switch schools in a higher grade. I know from personal experience that it gets harder to make new friends the farther along you are. My Mom and I moved to Florida when I was a freshman in high school, and that was a disaster for me. I know Antonia is a long way from high school. I just think the sooner she gets settled into a new school, the better. The drama with the Giudices was the final push to get us serious about moving. It seemed like the right thing at the time.”

Okay, if I’ve learned anything from watching, “Million Dollar Listing” it’s that you listen to your realtor and if you don’t like your realtor, change realtors. If your realtor isn’t performing to your expectations, then change realtors. Some of the brilliant commenters on this blog astutely pointed out that it’s really immaterial how much you think your house is worth – Your house is worth exactly however much someone is willing to pay for it at this point in time. Your house obviously isn’t priced appropriately. Your region just went through a major hurricane – People are just desperately trying to rebuild their lives – They’re probably not interested in buying an overpriced McMansion. Duh! It was stupid for you to put artificial pressure on your realtor to sell it “now or never” as if it was a life/death situation during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  It all just makes you look more and more clueless in life.

“On the episode, it comes off like Joe didn’t want to sell and agreed to it only because of me. Some people might believe I gave him my blood to put him in a house-selling trance. That’s just gross! Joe wanted to put it on the market as much as I did—and to get a good price. To my Joey Michelangelo, our house is a work of art. He’s in the business. He knows what it’s worth—3.8 million, even without a pool!”

Umm… Yes, that’s how it came off because that’s what Joe said on camera.  Shall we rewind it for you so you can see it again – We have the technology, really we do!  In addition, can we all just agree that you and Joe need to stop talking about bodily fluids?  I mean, never ever talk about them again… I’m not kidding. Melissa then goes on to criticize the other realtor that came over to show their house. Blah, blah, blah…

“I thought having the boys around would help transmit the idea that “love lives here.” Of course, Gino and Joey started in with each other as soon as people came through the door. How freaking adorable are they?”

Real Estate 101 – Never show the property while the owners are present.  How many of us have had to hurry up and get the heck out of Dodge when a prospective buyer was coming over to look at our house?  While your kids do seriously have a case of the “adorables” you need to get those cutie patooties out of there when you’re showing your house! Melissa then talks about Joe’s father’s pacemaker surgery – and how much they love them and how they bring an “Italian vibe” whenever they come over. She also compliments Tre’s kids on writing the “Get Well” letters. That was honestly a very nice comment.  I was shocked!

 “Caroline and Tre had their talk. I appreciated Caroline’s going to bat for us. She’s dealt with a lot of the same issues in her own family and felt personally motivated to preventing it from getting worse in ours. The two of them have been friends for a long time, and had a lot of air to clear. At first it felt like she was getting too involved, but now you can see her heart was in the right spot. Caroline and I get along really well, and I love her kids and always will.”

Wait, Caroline and Teresa have been friends for a long time? “Friends” is not how I would characterize their relationship – Not even during the good times when they could actually stand to be in the same room with each other.  Jac and Tre, yes… Jac and Caroline, yes… but Tre and Caroline, NO!

“Everyone feels that they’re entitled to an apology from everyone. No one is on the same page about who’s at fault, who’s to blame, and who should say, “I’m sorry.” It’ll take a miracle to sort that all out. But even in New Jersey, miracles do happen. Keep watching!”

Holy Future Storyline Telegraphing, Batman!  Gee… I wonder if there’s going to be a future episode wherein everyone is going to apologize to everyone and there’s going to be a gigantic reconciliation?  I’m on pins and needles… No really… I’m about to stick pins and needles in my eyes at this point…

Real Housewives of Orange County Blogs Blogged Part 3 by BB

VICKI (on Lauri’s beef with her): The majority of Vicki’s blog is focused on Lauri Peterson. Lauri spilled some not so nice gossip to Gretchen about Vicki and then proceeded to expand on her relationship with Vicki in her blog last week. Vicki responded as follows:

Vicki gave Lauri a job over seven years ago and she never had any negative or bad feelings towards her. When Lauri left the show, they were still cordial and nice to one another when they saw each other.

Vicki didn’t know what to do with the information she received from George’s ex-mother-in-law (by phone and e-mail), so she asked her close friend Jeana Keough her opinion about what she should do. Jeana passed this information to others, it got back to Lauri, and she was upset Vicki hadn’t told her about it directly. If she had it to do over, Vicki would have gone straight to Lauri and kept it between them. Vicki never went “public” with this information. She claims she only told Jeana and never had any intention of hurting Lauri.

As to why Lauri might be raising this issue now, Vicki says, “I guess she has an axe to grind with me and decided to come back to stir the pot. Maybe her life is a little boring, maybe the perfect Brady Bunch as she described her family wasn’t so perfect after all, and maybe she just missed us all. I doubt any of that is actually true though. In any event, staying quiet and letting her throw out lies about me is something I can’t do. You will see as the episodes evolve, I do approach her on this, but at least now you will have some background on what and why this is happening with her.”

Regarding the alleged “threesome” during the New Orleans business trip, Vicki says, “I had some of my close friends (who happened to be a few men) to my room for a cocktail party, which included Lauri, and my sister. It was really late in the evening, and a few of us sat on the bed talking while Lauri and others were in the room and was also part of this conversation. There was nothing ever inappropriate going on the entire time, everyone was FULLY CLOTHED, and she twisted it to Gretchen insinuating that I had a “threesome.” Vicki says those in the room at the time can back her up on this.

About the Greek man with no teeth, Vicki has no idea how Lauri came up with this one. Vicki explains a dear friend invited her on a cooking trip to Greece with a group of women. She and her friend were roommates and were never separated during the trip. When Vicki returned from the trip, she says “I told Lauri how attractive some of the Greek men and women [were?]. I told her we went dancing one evening and how much fun we all had and that we had met a group of young men that were a lot of fun. Nothing ever was inappropriate, or was there ever a time I was alone with them. The fact that she LIED again saying that I brought back a “toothless” Greek man is just unbelievable.”

Finally Vicki says, “Lastly, Lauri saying that I had multiple men during my marriage to Donn is another lie. Truth of the matter is I am in a male-dominated industry and I have a lot of male friends. I respect myself enough to know that I am not that person who Lauri insinuated me being.” Vicki says it’s been hard enough for her to expose some things on the show she wasn’t proud of, but she won’t tolerate lies.

TAMRA (on her “Dark Past): I’ve gone back and forth on Tamra’s sudden revelation about her “inner demons” from an early age and her depression. If it’s true she had thoughts of suicide as early as 12 years of age and she attempted suicide and was hospitalized at the age of 21, then sure, I will buy the fact that she suffers from depression. I will even go so far as to say it may have contributed to some of her personality traits on the show, including not wanting to become too close to others or her sarcastic demeanor. So for the sake of argument, I’m not questioning the fact that Tamra suffers from depression. However, I DO question the timing of this reveal, and we can all come up with a reason or two why Tammy Sue decided to do it.

So Tamra didn’t have a perfect childhood and suffers from depression. Cry me a river and join most of the rest of us, Tamra. I don’t believe either of those factors caused her to have treated Gretchen, Alexis, Vicki or even her ex-husband so badly in the past. I don’t need to recount all the viscous and vile things Tamra has said and done. To blame it on her childhood or depression is just ludicrous. I am very familiar with depression. I suffer from it as do some of my family members and friends. None of us have ever treated others the way Tamra has done on the show. Whether it’s her true nature or a persona developed to ratchet up drama, it doesn’t say much for Tamra’s character either way.

Would you want to be friends with Tamra Barney? Gretchen, Alexis and Vicki have all been victims of Tamra’s treachery in the past, both on the show and in the social media. It’s baffling to me that all seems to be forgiven so easily by the three of them, especially Gretchen and Alexis. All it took for Gretchen was lunch and a friendship bracelet. I predict in the near future, Gretchen is going to regret her decision to accept Tamra’s apology and offer of friendship.

Is Tamra really on the road to self-discovery and redemption? She says, “I am finally at a point in my life where I am happy. I understand why I am the way I am and I’m trying to correct the things I need to change. I continue to work out daily to help me deal with depression. I will always have a problem dealing with emotions and expressing myself and I might even have a freak out now and then. I am only human!” Sounds to me like she’s covering her bases for future Tamra-like behavior.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM:

Alexis wants to have another baby. Jim doesn’t. Alexis says she will get her way. I don’t care.

Heather and her family just celebrated a wedding anniversary and early father’s day. Terry got some onion rings in the deal. I don’t care.

  1. Rebecca says:

    Good morning all!

  2. Mene Seela says:

    Happy weekend everyone! I hope that you all have a nice Father’s Day.

    NMD I’m so glad you brought up MM. My entire family are huge MM fans. Its one of those shows that sticks with you for days after viewing. Have you watched this season yet? My daughter loves to talk about Don & Megan. Mr Seela hates Pete.
    You made a great comparison between Bethenny/Jill and MM. So many pieces and opinions to dicuss.
    Not one of them is about dildos.

    • lillybee says:

      Good Morning.

    • Powell says:

      Mene every epi of Mad Men I just see Don as an unhappy man & that he just holds on to the unpleasant parts of his childhood that contributes to his unhappiness. I did not see that coming w/him & Betty sleeping together. Pete. Pete is a mini version of Don. I’m glad Trudie knows what he’s been up to. MM only has a few epis left. the season went by fast.

  3. Orson says:

    Doing the #6 dance!
    Mornin’ all!

  4. BB says:

    Good AFTERNOON all! At least it’s afternoon where I am. Lol. Hope everyone has a great father’s day weekend or if you’re not celebrating fathers day, a great weekend just the same.

    • Powell says:

      BB what are you doing for your husband on Father’s Day? It will be so sweet for your daughter & son-in law to celebrate their 1st FD.

      • BB says:

        I don’t do anything for my husband on fathers day and he doesn’t do anything for me on mother’s day either (except be extra nice). We always use the motto he’s not my dad and I’m not his mom. We let our kids do the doing. Lol. We do get each other cards though.

  5. cocfarm says:

    Welcome to the world of Madmen! What fabulous story telling.

    Good afternoon everyone!

    • Laineylainey says:

      I only watched last season and found it a bit dark. My son tells me that I should watch from season one because the characters have a really rich back story and its hard to tune in one season out of the blue.

      • Mene Seela says:

        Your son is right. Its not gloomy at all. Basically its glamorous people who are all mixed up and their individual journeys. All that is a fast changing world. We know a lot about some characters and others we only glimpse. MM tells me a lot about what the 1960s generation of my family went through.

        The choices the characters make is what is fascinating.
        You want to hug or slap them. I want to make out with Don Draper, then punch him.

        • Powell says:

          Mene I like that you said “The choices the characters make.”, “You want to hug or slap them.” You summed up what the show is about.

      • chismosa says:

        Lainey definitely put it on your list to watch one day. Just like i have The Wire on my list, Downtown Abbey, etc…
        It’s slow- just like a novel. Don’t be expecting any quick plot movements. The time period is the best!

    • Powell says:

      It is. They’re now in the 60s. I wonder where they will go next?

  6. Laineylainey says:

    Watching Yes Man with Jim Carrey. So far, it’s pretty good.

  7. lillybee says:

    I am on season 2 of Sons of Anarchy. I am so enjoying it.

    • melthehound says:

      What did you think of how they dealt with that child molester clown in the second or third episode? Personally, I enjoyed it.

      • lillybee says:

        Wow, quick justice.

        • melthehound says:

          Yep… No wasted money on a trial, no jury selection, no Nancy Grace type talking heads about what should happen, just cut off the offending parts and be done with it (personally, I think that is what should happen with all child molesters). That act of justice will be revisited several times throughout the show.. The great thing about Kurt Sutter’s writing here, is nothing happens for no reason or just for the reasons it may seem at the time.

    • iceNfire says:

      I Love SOA! My whole family Loves SOA!

  8. Powell says:

    Good afternoon everyone. I hope you’re having a great Saturday. It’s so nice out.

  9. Powell says:

    MTH have you been checking out “24”? I see its on the Audience channel 334 on DirectTv. I don’t know what season it is though.

    • melthehound says:

      I haven’t yet.. I think it’s on Netflix and I can check it out there. My cable sucks as everything is extra and if I got everything, I could be paying over $200 per month just for TV alone.. Nothing there is worth that. Even things like Bravo and MTV are part of the ‘upgrade’ package with them from the ‘basic’. Basic is the local channels (some of them), a shitload of shopping channels, kiddie programming (which like the shopping channels, I never watch) and a boatload of church channels..

      • Powell says:

        I totally understand where you’re coming from. We pay $170 something now since DirectTv had the battle last yr w/Viacom. We have premium channels so we get just about everything except sports packages & I don’t do pay per view for movies cause they show on HBO, Stars, Showtime, etc that we already pay for so I can wait 2-3 to watch PPV movies & we have HD. But we get new receivers for free, we get free movies every once in a while, we get to try some channels for 3 mths at times.

        • melthehound says:

          I have all the sports channels but never watch it.. I’ve had them for like 5 years now. When they did the install, the botched everything so bad (ATT Uverse) that they just gave it to me. I tried to drop it but apparently it’s now another part of the ‘upgrade’ package that I don’t use. Had HD but dropped it because I never watched it. I wish I could just get the channels I want and leave the rest. I hate these ‘packages’. The worse part is, even the channels I do get, they move some of them to higher packages so if I still want them, I have to pay more. Bottom line, I’m enjoying a lot of online viewing lately and for the most part, the television stays dark. Even the HWs are online at the freebie sites (commercial free) a few hours after regular air time. I don’t know how long that will last though. The movie channel I was watching online got completely shut down (too much pirated material).

      • Catseye says:

        What makes me angry is the INFOMERCIALS, I used to work graveyard shift and on my nite’s off, that’s the only type of programs that seemed to be on.

        • melthehound says:

          Yeah… and now you have a hundred channels of them and we PAY to pipe this shit in to our homes.

        • Powell says:

          If I’m up when those are on I watch movies or what I hav on my DVR.

  10. Laineylainey says:

    Does anyone have Netflix on their iPad? Would you recommend?

    • BB says:

      My DD and her husband have it on their Ipads and it’s good, it works fine. They also have it on their kindle. I have it on my kindle fire and like it.

  11. melthehound says:

    Good afternoon everyone. A little bit of Blog chat here… Stars99, I don’t know which of us got the short end of the stick here. Me recapping the shows or you recapping their excuses. That bravo blog from MeGo is so full of shit, I can smell it here. Then again, I did just clean up the back yard 😦 . Nah… It’s her blog entry… I think she’s about to implode.,.. She has forgotten that we have longer memories than even Teresa (who doesn’t hold grudges) does. In the end, the two of them don’t like each other and that’s fine. Time for the BS to end but I don’t have any faith it ever will.

    BB, Great writeup on the women from OC. I don’t pay much attention to the show itself but always appreciate reading the recaps from both you and Stars.. I can’t say I care much about some threesome in New Orleans and really don’t even want to think about it :shudder: .. It seems to me that this axe this Laurie has to grind is lack of a paycheck so she is back on the show to get one. The one thing I agree with in the whole thing, from what I’ve read, is that these people should talk directly to the ones they have issues with rather than polling the rest of the crowd before forming a real opinion. None of these hyenas, on any of the shows, seems to be able to get that through their thick skulls. Then again, what would we watch if it weren’t for the made up drama? NMD has a suggestion, Mad Men.

    • Powell says:

      MTH most of them have nothing but excuses. Excuse is their 1st, middle & last name. I’m with you. Tre & Mel don’t have to like one another. In every family I know there’s always someone to dislike.

      Mad Men is the show. 😀

      • melthehound says:

        😀 .

      • Birdwoman says:

        I never liked my ex-sister in law! I thought she was a sneaky, selfish person who wasn’t very nice to my brother. But, because he loved her I kept my mouth shut and I was always civil. Good thing she wasn’t the competitive type like Mego and Teresa because that would make me nuts! 🙂 Well, in the end I was right about her and she treated my brother horribly.

    • Catseye says:

      Oh d@mn, I was hoping you’d watch the show with the strippers in Mexico on and give us your opinion from a guy’s perspective!!

      • melthehound says:

        I’ll give the same opinion I would if the roles were reversed. To each… However, to allow themselves to be seen on TV letting a couple of ‘guys’ waving their tallywhackers in their faces and who knows what else, trashy. From what I’ve read, Gretchen sure knows how to pick them.

  12. Thank you Stars99 for your take on Melissa’s blog. Same thanks to BB for her work on RHOC (I don’t watch them, don’t hate me)! At this point, Melissa should just stop trying to defend her lies and/or making stuff up! As for blaming Teresa, that should stop too. Bravo’s edit of Melissa this season is so subtle (the faker at the mirror) that I bet Melissa doesn’t even realize what is going on until she sees it in a housewives blog.

    • melthehound says:

      100% agree WCW.. Nice to see you 🙂

    • Rebecca says:

      The Gorgas never intended to live in that home. Why won’t Melissa just admit that? Instead she keeps changing her story about why they are trying to sell it. (Teresa’s fault. Not Teresa’s fault.) The way we know for CERTAIN they never intended to live there is because they never decorated the house. A $3.8 million house deserves a decorator and designer furniture. (Please refer to Villa Rosa or Casa de Foster) There’s none of that in there, just some cheap millwork.

      Table for two – party of denial.

      • chismosa says:

        3.8 mill is different depending where you are/ state/ city, etc.
        IMO

        • melthehound says:

          You are correct about that but I doubt, regardless of the area, anyone wants to pay that kind of scratch for a house with cracked walls/plaster and crumbling faux marble. Michelangelo Gorga has an overinflated sense of worth/value IMO.. If he really things that place is worth 3.87mil, let Him find the sucker to pay it. For Sale By Owner.

  13. Nancy says:

    You can hear a pin drop and that doesn’t happen very often on America’s Got Talent.

  14. princesspindy says:

    Stars great job, I needed that Hardee Har Har this morning, it made me laugh out loud!!!!
    NMD, I guess I am going to try Mad Men from Season 1 now that I finished Call the Midwife, Thanks for all you do!!!

    Princess Beanie Boo Update ***
    She woke me up at 5:30am, she said I jumped out of bed, lol! I am out of practice for the early morning wake ups from little kids. At least she didn’t just stand by the bed like she use to as a kid, Gawd that use to freak me out. Roll over and there is just this presence standing next to you!! Nope, she graduated to turning the ceiling light on, in all it’s glory, thought it would be kinder and gentler, obvs NOT!!!! Crushed up a pain pill for her and went back to bed unfortunately no rest for the wicked!!! Took her back to Kaiser today at 11. Really nice Dr., not condescending, gave her an option and she took the shots…shot of antibiotics and shot of steroids…since she can hardly swallow, good choices and no stomach or “other” antibiotic issues to have to deal with…. and some more pain pills. So we are back at home, I am exhausted but having a 2nd cup of coffee and I have lots of fun work to do!!! Thank you again for all your kind thoughts and prayers!!

    **stealing from Shamrock*** (((Hugs board real hard)))

    Kim Kardashian had her baby girl this morning 4 weeks early. They said she (Kim) was ill. ????

    • Mene Seela says:

      My God that woman is boring.

    • Amalfi says:

      Maybe I’ll go to hell for speculating that the early birth was convenient for the season’s shooting schedule.

      • melthehound says:

        They will be there first for that being a fact 😉

        • Amalfi says:

          If that is the season finale Jeff, I will laugh and laugh… except it is a poor sweet baby’s life manipulated for the financial gain of that trashy family. What an appropriate welcome to that family, then. Allegedly.

    • chismosa says:

      She wanted it earlier so that she didnt have to share the spotlight with Cate’s baby.

      People online are CRUCIFYING her its hysterical

    Good Afternoon! Quick note. First Born let me know that Second Born (who now has money for the first time in his life due to new job at casino) ordered a new watch for their father for Father’s day. Really beautiful. Shhhhhh,,,,,,,its a secret. I am so proud of my son’s.

  17. Mene Seela says:

    Anyone watch Game of Thrones? My husband just showed me this parody by Jimmy Fallon. I guess its become quite famous. Hilarious. Something is wrong on “Floor of Six”. My daughter likes their take on The Wall.

    Good luck Blackhawks and Bruins.

    Here here NMD 🙂 I agree with you about BRAVO/Housewives and Mad Men 🙂 they have NOTHING in common and I LOVE Mad Men. What is going on with Peter, Mr Perfect “wanna be”, at the same time trying to be like Don and now smoked what others are smoking???? I guess his perfect little world is not perfect any more, so he doesn’t know how to act to the new mess. I have been watching Hannibal Also, has anyone? great show. Basically, I am completely enjoying the none reality tv. Life is good again 🙂

    • Powell says:

      Cali I’ve thought Peter was trying to be like Don from S2 on. S1 he was trying to get Don’s respect. SCP-Sterling Cooper Price as it is called now is moving in a new direction that Pete can’t handle. I wonder if what’s his name will get him a position at another firm? How do you like Harry Hamlin? I’ve always loved him & think he fits right in. Roger. OMG trying to be Joan’s son’s father on the sly cause Margaret will no longer let him be an involved grandfather. He should have just stayed married to his 1st wife. I love this show.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Cali35 I have been watching Hannibal. Oh my gosh…I love it!!

    • chismosa says:

      Hi Cali— there is a LOT of theories going on about Pete, Bob Benson, Megan (vomit) all over online.

      The basic idea I believe is that either Pete is going to kill himself

      Then the whole analysis of Pete’s reaction to Bob
      Who is Bob? Is he death (here to accompany Don that way— don is reading Dante’s Inferno)/ is he sent from the government to spy on the co. or Don/ is he just a happy go lucky guy trying to fit in/ is he secretly gay — (Manolo)- or, what I like– is he a SOCIOPATH who is slithering his way into the co., and is just doing the same thing Don himself slithered into the company.

      Peter is at the END. This actor deserves an Emmy ! His whole world is collapsed. His reaction to Bob last week had much conjecture of maybe his hatred of women ===== he’s gay. I don’t know. I have other ideas.
      I just wish Vincent Kartheiser Emmys.

      It’s crazy what’s going on there.
      Lots of analysis online, it’s CRAZY!

      • Mene Seela says:

        Chimmie we love to trash Don in our house. Pete has always been a weasel. Remember the “rape” of the au pair?

        • chismosa says:

          Oh gosh yes! There is probably a Mad men wiki I should go back to. Just like they did a “Lostpedia”
          When that was on

          And poor Joan with Dr Rape. Gotta love Joan. Amazing

        • chismosa says:

          Meant to add, it’s just so hard to trash Don. That beyond handsome face! Ughhhh!
          Only a (prostitute) mother could hate him! Lol

          Jon Hamm did outstanding work last week. Totally Emmy-worthy

    Lynn’s cousin just scored the first goal. 🙂

  22. Catseye says:

    I saw a link on another site of an Instagram pic of Gretchen dressed in some yellow, porno queen get-up, apparently for Tamra’s wedding today. She looks like an absolute fool. Plunging neckline with a thigh-high split up the front and her hair really looks stupid. I guess she and Tamra are besties again!

    • Mene Seela says:

      OMG I have to find that picture. Gretchen is just a clown.

      • Catseye says:

        It’s on Television Without Pity and also RealityTea has more of everyone, except Vicki. I saw one of Heather with a REALLY handsome looking guy and another one with her kissing Terry on the cheek–I guess she’s trying to prove how much of a “devoted” wife she really is.

  23. chismosa says:

    NMD– did you JUST watch and binge on all Mad Men to current episodes?

    Don is basically a narcissist/ borderline sociopath IMO
    Gotta love him

    Ok back to catching up ^^^^^

    • Mene Seela says:

      I agree. Don is extremely descructive and self desctructive.

      • chismosa says:

        Yes. But I don’t know why we “feel” for him.
        Just like we sort of felt for tony soprano?

        It’s so funny

        • California35 says:

          I agree, besides he doesn’t hurt anyone…ok his wives himself and OMG his daughter last episode….okmhe does hurt people 😛 but what I mean is that he is not a bad guy out to hurt other on purpose. He works hard, he helps others, ets.

        • California35 says:

          Chismosa, what do you mean when you said Bob is death? Many people see him, not just Pete. I have wondered all the other questions you mentioned. Plus…is he some wealthy guy’s son, or Don’s son, or will he be Pete’s future love interest 😉 lol

          • chismosa says:

            All your points have been questioned online as well. And people have said yes— other people SEE him around. The best was Harry Hamlin yelling at him “what are you doing down here! Get back upstairs!!!”
            I don’t know, but he’s so sinister- i just LOVE it. !!!!

            I like to believe the kooky crazy ideas. Though they may not come out that way

            • California35 says:

              I seeeee, hhmm so like all in the company are in a way in some kind of “Lost” situation 😛 they all may have seen him because he let’s all of them see him:-)

              • Mene Seela says:

                I see Bob as just an opportunist. Whatever he thinks people want, that’s what he will deliver. I don’tt find him creepy. Yet.

                • chismosa says:

                  You may very well be right. I think we all just like to read more into there you know?
                  I think he is what you said. Just like Don was an opportunist with Roger to get into advertising.

                • California35 says:

                  Yeah that would be good, he is a good guy with intentions to become some body. Very happy to help everyone and to show he can be someone. He did good for Joan, then Joan did good for him whe he was considered firing material.

  24. Nancy says:

    Boston Bruins win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. chismosa says:

    @Lainey if you see this— i saw your response the other day about your son being in town for Father’s day and how special this is for your husband. I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow if i don’t catch you!

    You’re always so full of love and warmth and understanding (!!!!) for me! So have a great day Laiñita!

    • Laineylainey says:

      I’m right here, mi amor! We are happy to have our son here, who promised me he will be here ON TIME. We shall see. Thanks for our sweet post, I hope you have a great day, too!!!! I’ve been wanting to tell you and the others about my son. He said he waited to tell me in person because he wanted to see my face. But right before he left NY to come here he contacted a friend of his who works for True Entertainment and the friend told him they are always looking for editors and that my son should contact him when he returned to NY. True Entertainment produces RhoAtlanta!!!!! I do hope this works out for him! Oh and my daughter has a new billboard in LA. It’s for the new FX show THEBRIDGE. I will try to find a way to post it here. It’s not very glamorous, well, she’s supposed to be “not alive” —I can’t bring myself to say the “d” word. LOL

      • Laineylainey says:

        Why didn’t I proofread…????? not our sweet post. It should say YOUR sweet post.

      • Catseye says:

        WOW. Your daughter is REALLY famous!! She’s all over the place.

        • Laineylainey says:

          Haha, but…No,no,no….if she were famous they would show her face. If she could only get an ad or billboard that showed her face…it’s the difference between paying one month of rent and expenses (nothing to sneeze at – and she’s/we’re super grateful for that!) …so it’s one month vs. 8-12 months of rent & expenses depending onthe client. If she were a recognizable name or face the value/pay would go even higher. Way higher. But now we’re dreamin’…it can’t hurt to dream…am I right??

          Maybe LAdebra will see it and snap a pic for us!!

          • ladebra says:

            I will keep my eyes open for it! .. When I saw the Sierra Mist one you could have knocked me over with a feather!!

            • Laineylainey says:

              Small world, right? The bridge billboard shows her back, neck, back of her head and her arm/hand. Her arm/hand looks very 3d. Kinda creepy.

      • chismosa says:

        Ok that is AMAZING! Does Kandi’s fiance still work for the production company??? I hope he lands it– how fun! More time with Nene! BLONK.

        Your daughter—- please send a jpeg in here or link when you have one! I am going to watch that show– The Bridge. I liked the premise. I like the actors in it– Diane Kruger and Demian Bechir.
        Congrats!!!! Keep us all posted

        • Laineylainey says:

          I think they are banking on the border states as well as Latino American/Hispanic community to support this show as it is set on the Texas Mexican border of El Paso, TX and Juarez, Mexico. Mexican male cop working with Caucasion American female cop. If its done right, it will be really interesting and edgy…a cool way to observe two very different yet coexistent cultures.

        • Laineylainey says:

          Re my son: I literally screamed and started jumping up and down…he got a big grin on his face..he said, “THIS is why I didn’t tell you over the phone.”I don’t know about Todd, but my kid would only be involved in post production work in NY. I hope, hope, hope!

    Yolanda’s daughter is the one in the middle.

    • Laineylainey says:

      She is gorgeous!! She made mucho moolah for this ad. This ad will pay many months of rent!! Oh yeah, she’s so young, she still lives at home! Good for GiGi. 🙂

  30. TexasTart says:

    Good Morning! 😀 Trying to get started on a bathroom remodel here, on top of all the usualy – very busy. Hope everyone is well and has a good day!

    • Catseye says:

      Oh, I LOVE stuff like that. It might be inconvenient for a little while, but afterward it’s SOOO worth it!! I’m hoping I to re-do my living room walls this summer.

      • TexasTart says:

        Oh good, you can trade places with me – just kidding. This is more complicated than when we did our kitchen..but like the kitchen we are gutting everything. It’s an old house. I am sacrificing a closet to add space to the bath.. the walls and doors changed and something pushed back in the other bath. Some crazy person designed and wasted space..a lack of usefulness galore. It will take a long time, as husband and I work long hours as part of our business, but it will be nice when it’s size and function suit our preferences. And no doubt it will improve resale of the home. Well back to figuring out what to do with everything that was in that closet!

        • Laineylainey says:

          Sounds like a lot of work, have you and Mr.Tart ever done d-I-y projects like this before? Not us, we can barely even hang a picture on the wall. Geeez

    *spoilers if anyone really cares about Tammy Sue’s spin off*
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2342465/Tamra-Barney-weds-boyfriend-Eddie-Judge-lavish-California-ceremony.html
    IN the Bridal party Vicki & Heather
    In the audience Alexis & Jim, Gretchen & Slade
    I didn’t look too hard for Lydia and that guy she’s married to
    and there is a guy that is not hard to miss because he’s oompa loompa orange

    • TexasTart says:

      Thanks, jezzibel for pics of Tammy Sue’s gay wedding. Lydia was easy to find ….wait for it….because the headband!!! She is with husband, behind Slade – from our viewpoint – and next to Alexis and Jim. Alexis looks thrilled to be there, ha. I like Alexis hair and the style of her dress…can’t say much for the others…Tammy sue’s dress turns into muscle fibers, IDK how to describe, I just do not like it. This is all made is made for TV. TV that I will not watch!

      • jezzibel says:

        I wonder if having all of the OC heifers there, was an attempt by the producers to ensure that viewers would tune into to watch this farce.

        • Laineylainey says:

          You sounded like detox with your “heifers”. .cracked me up. Yes Bravo hopes we’ll want to watch all the heifers in all their heiferness.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Muscle fibers??? Haha!

    • BB says:

      Lydia is sitting right beside Jim and Alexis (I can tell by the head band). Gretch and Slade right behind them. Gretch’s dress is butt ugly. Tamra’s dress is not bad but I’m not sure I like the part that looks like rope. Vicki is standing right beside Tamra. Was she the matron of honor? Funny that Vicki and Heather are in the wedding party, but Gretch isn’t.

      • Catseye says:

        That IS rather odd, that Gretchen wasn’t a bridesmaid. I agree her dress is very ugly and (I think) inappropriate looking.

        • jezzibel says:

          I was going to rag on Tammy Sue about wearing white for her 3rd wedding but it looks like her dress is pale pink with white tulle accents on the bottom and silver beading over pale pink on the top. It doesn’t fit her though the bust though. It would also look better if she put her hair in a updo for a change, and the necklace off as well
          Brooks in in the audience same row as Gretchen & Slade

          • Laineylainey says:

            I was surprised to see that her dress wasn’t made to fit her perfectly. She is so tiny and this dress looks kind of big on her. Her hair looks really pretty, though. Very Nice extensions. My compliments to her hair people.

        • Laineylainey says:

          I think her dress looks big on her, too! It swallows her up!

      • TexasTart says:

        That IS so funny about Gretchen not in the wedding party…especially being it’s a large party, haha.

    • California35 says:

      I think I I also see Lynn, one who used to be on OC. She had two daughters, and she was going to leave her husband because he didn’t tell her they were broke.

      • jezzibel says:

        I guess Jeana Keough’s e-vite got lost in her spam filter

        • Laineylainey says:

          LOL. Oh believe you me, Jeana would have been there if there had been an invite. She’s not averse to an afternoon of scripted ridiculousness with a touch of possible drinks in the face.

  32. BB says:

    Happy Father’s Day to all the great dad’s out there (whether it be to furry type children or human type children or both)!

    • Laineylainey says:

      Cute. Yes Happy Fathers Day to all our dads, dads to the four legged, too!! They need dads, too!

  33. Lulu says:

    Good Morning everyone!!!!! Happy father’s day!!!! So far my DH is spending it asleep 😦 He’s planning on taking our toddler out for a father son day. It’s a win/win for me that’s for sure!

    NMD love the MM comparison! All or most of the HW’s are just not that cerebral. 🙂 They are too in love with material things and themselves to really show us who they are. I have to laugh if I hung out with a group of women where they were hell bent on drama. I wouldn’t be friends with them. I wish Bravo would go back to the drawing board and see what made the HW’s brand popular.

  34. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  35. Powell says:

    JNNTJ I hope you had a great Father’s DAY party yesterday. No one stayed over from too much partying did they? 🙂

  36. Laineylainey says:

    I tried to post this earlier and I lost it from switching from window to window to copy the links. i hope this works! I stayed up late last night and saw these ads while I was watching my dvr’d JUSTIFIED shows. (On FX of course)

    • California35 says:

      Looks interesting …so you like Justified? I saw the commercial for it, but I Forgot all about it, and ver watched it 😦 I will look for it on Demand, maybe I can catch up so I can watch it.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Cali, I do Iike it. If you’ve ever watched “get shorty” it’s (justified) got the same kinda feel to it. Elmore Leonard wrote Get Shorty and Justified is based on a short story by Elmore Leonard. I believe he is also the exec producer for Justified. It’s got a lot of humor (sometimes dark humor) and absurd situations that you won’t know if you should wince or laugh. So you do both. The bad guys show vulnerability and he shows us that a lot of the time the “bad guys” aren’t geniuses. LOL

  37. California35 says:

    This is not to mock third wedding or second wedding or civil weddings or older woman getting married or Tamra’ wedding (ok maybe the last one :-P)
    This is a real question I wonder. I know things change and tradions change, but I still wonder. It is assertable to have a blow out big kind of wedding when it isn’t the first wedding? When it is not a church/religious wedding, when the bride is not a young bride. Let’s forget the bride being “pure” and all of that…I am only asking about the extravagance and show off and big dress and white dress, and bridesmaids???!!

    For example, Tamra has all of these. She is over 40, she has been married twice, I don’t know who is marring her, but is it religious? She has the big party, she wears that big dress, she has her bachelorette parties, and even Vicky mentioned that it is her third wedding and didn’t think she should get a gift.

    Is all of these acceptable? Not ridiculous? Again, please if you did any of these, I am not mocking or criticizing it, I really want to know. I am pretty close to 40, and am not even in a relationship. It will be a long while before or even if it happens. When wedding talks cone, that is not often any more, but when it did I would say soemthing like I would have a type of wedding depending on my age and the groom. I tent to think that it would be something discrete no matter what, unless the groom wants something big and is willing to pay for it…and even then I would push for something discret. I still appreciate big wedding in other people, and the big dresses and all. I just think that I may be a bit old fashion thinking that if I get married now and from now on, my wedding would be even more discrete, with a small discrete dress, and if a civil one there would not be walking down an hisle or bridesmaids. If one at church, then I would only have my maid of honor. I don’t know, again, I am just old fashion I guess. What do you guys think

    • Catseye says:

      I agree. I only had one wedding/marriage, I’m well over 50 and that was enough for me. The ONLY reason I think it’s even a good idea to get married any more, is if a couple plans on having children together.
