    Hello everyone. I forgot this is the season finale. It went by fast. Besides T & G acting like assesit wasn’t a bad season. I’m looking forward to the reunion.

  2. AZGirl says:

    Yea. I want to see Vicki rip Sletchen a new one.

  3. Powell says:

    Has anyone ever watched Shark Week on Discovery? I never have. It premiers tonight at 9.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Not i

      • Nancy says:

        Hi Lainey…4 boxes of Quest bars just arrived at my door. 🙂

        • BB says:

          What flavors did you get?

          • Nancy says:

            I got the variety pack. There is only one flavor that I just can get down my throat.
            (Peanut Butter Cups) I have lost 8 lbs but I only eat a small salad and some fruit
            plus 2 protein bars a day. I need this weight off asap so I can have my total knee replacement. My doc still won’t let me get off my RSD meds so this is going to be a
            struggle for me without an end in sight. Obviously I can’t stay on this kind of diet for
            too long but I will figure it out. I’ve never had this problem so it’s all new to me.

            • AZGirl says:

              Are you able to exercise? Stationary bike?

              • AZGirl says:

                recumbent bike. Less strain on knees

              • Nancy says:

                We are looking for one right now. Which one would you get?

                • Nancy says:

                  I’ll check out recumbent bikes as I’ve never heard of it.

                  • AZGirl says:

                    They are the ones you recline on so the pressure is not on the meniscus. As you know. When you have the knee replaced it is best to get right into an overnight rehab clinics for a week stay. They get you up and moving. Regardless of the pain. See if you qualify through your insurance.

                    • Nancy says:

                      Thanks AZGirl. I have Kaiser so they’ll get me out of there asap. My BIL is a
                      physical therapist so I was thinking I might go to work with him and have him work on me. I am terrified of the post-op pain and terrified of taking the pain meds.

  4. AZGirl says:

    Dishes are done. Wine in hand. READY TO RUMBLE!!!

  5. AZGirl says:

    Now I just need to rewatch the crapfest engagement episode. Really, Slade is crying. Crying cause he thinks he has a spin off show.

  6. AZGirl says:

    Ummm those spin bikes are crap. Schwinn is the only bike to use.

  7. AZGirl says:

    Ok…here are the Beverly Hillbillies. Slade family could have their own show.

  8. AZGirl says:

    Bullsh#t Slade’s son does not give a rat’s ass about him.

  9. AZGirl says:

    Gretchen and Slade are mean people.

  10. plainviewsue says:

    I have to say for the most part I did enjoy this season. Definitely more than last season, cos I hated the fake friendship of Tamra and Gretchen.

    Alexis, more than any other HW I can think of, has shown the most growth. She started on this show very shallow; she is now one of my favorite all around HW’s.

    I don’t understand Ryan going off so badly on Lydia’s mom. Cos her feet were on the couch? And Briana’s in the background laughing? He seems very controlling.

    Won’t be watching till 10, cos I have to watch the Fosters finale first. Anyone else watch that show? It is excellent.

    • Nancy says:

      Ryan scares me and he has guns!! Not good IMHO.

    • vilzvet says:

      I’m going to watch OC tomorrow. I just remembered I “must” watch “The Bachelorette” tonight so I can see who or IF she picks anyone. The guy she really “loved” left the show last week because he couldn’t say he felt the same. I wonder if she will not pick anyone because she was so heartbroken.

  11. ladebra says:

    Thanks for not sucking, lol. I like that!

  12. AZGirl says:

    OT. I popped over to the Health and Fitness page. Some of you are really making progress. I just need to remind you all that the more you MOVE the more progress you will make. I know this is hard. Some of you have health issues and on medication. Still just walking around the block every morning is beneficial. This week 1 time around. Next week 2 times. etc. Diet is good but moving is much better. Helps the heart and metabolism.
    Stay strong.

  13. Nancy says:

    What is Gretchen wearing?

  14. AZGirl says:

    What is that scar on Ryan’s forehead?

  15. Nancy says:

    Why do we watch this?

  16. boston02127 says:

    Fancy pants on Heather.

  17. boston02127 says:

    Gretchen’s makeup is disgusting looking.

  18. Nancy says:

    These Housewives shows are getting very dark.

  19. cusi77 says:

    I was left all alone in the previous page… Gretchen is bothering me!!!!!!!!!! Vicki and her double standards bothers me!!!!!! Tamra and her bracelets or pictures bothers me!!!!!

  20. Nancy says:

    STFU Slade.

  21. cusi77 says:

    I am thinking that Gretchen jumped into the marriage so she can be in Housewives for another Season.. she has no friends there…

    • melthehound says:

      I am not even watching but in the day of spinoff wedding shows, why would it surprise anyone that Gretchen would want to get married, even to an asshole like Slade?

  22. Nancy says:

    He did it again!!!!!!! Yuck!

  23. boston02127 says:

    Anyone who would like a friendship bracelet, let me know. I can make them, I remember how from fifth grade.

  24. Nancy says:


  25. Kat From Ohio says:

    what in the hell is ryan’s problem

  26. Sus says:

    Wow Ryan is a big jerk. Umm, Vicki owns the house buddy, not you. I don’t care if that woman was smoking a bone in the living room. How dare him.

    Shut up Brianna. There’s no defending him.

  27. cusi77 says:

    Baby Jesus, that man has angry issues!!! Pour Vicki having him living in her house!!

  28. boston02127 says:

    Good thing she didn’t fart.

  29. Kat From Ohio says:

    and brooks is the man we’re supposed to hate? he’s not my cup of tea, but at least he doesn’t speak disrespectfully to vicki.

  30. JumpTheShark says:

    Good thing she didn’t pee.

  31. cusi77 says:

    You can shout Vicki, now I know what is going on in your house! Jump in every men bed’s you want, I don’t judge you! Haa!

  32. AZGirl says:

    Bring Ryan over to my house and I will have Pepper straighten his ass out. He walks in the door and she will shred him.

  33. Nancy says:

    He’s soooo frigging rude.

  34. Kat From Ohio says:

    thank god for vicki’s brother. i totally agree with him! i really don’t think vicki cared about the couch, no matter what ryan says

  35. boston02127 says:

    He could of easily gotten a blanket or towel to put under her feet.

  36. cusi77 says:


  37. boston02127 says:

    Vicki needs to stop with the excuses for her SIL.

    • cusi77 says:

      They should leave, have your own home guys. I am sure he is making good money. I respect him he is defending our Country and I don’t respect him as an abusive man!

  38. Nancy says:

    It’s weird that Briana married a control freak when she didn’t like that about her mother.

  39. NJBev says:

    I called it from the start-
    this guy is an absolute control freak.
    an absolute control freak-

  40. AZGirl says:

    Why is Brianna not seeing Ryan for what he is? Vicki’s needs to stop letting her boobs loose.

  41. boston02127 says:

    How did this abusive situation turn to Vicki and Brooks? They need to clean up Ryan and his inexcusable behavior.

    • Nancy says:

      I’m feeling sorry for Briana right now. There’s no getting out of there now as they have
      a baby. Silly people!!

  42. AZGirl says:

    I don’t care who marries whom but I would take Ryan down and kick him and my daughter out of my house in heartbeat. Grandson or not. BS.

    • Iowagirl says:

      Yep AZ girl they gotta go now. Grandson or not she cannot put up with Ryan’s behavior for another second. Does anyone fear for Brianna if she leaves this guy? I do. There could be a very dangerous situation for Bri in the future.

      • NJBev says:

        I do fear for Bri in the future.

      • Sasha says:

        Iowagirl, he seems like the(If I can’t have her-then no one else can)type of a guy.

        • cusi77 says:

          Sasha_ I have watched all the Lifetime movies and my imagination goes so fast in this moment… Really, that man needs help or Brianna is not safe with him.

          • Sasha says:

            Cusi, I used to love a good Lifetime movie. If Ryan is going to follow the formula he must now turn her against her family, take her to another state and make her live in a cabin in the woods with no telephone.

      • Catseye says:

        Unless he gets fixated on another woman. Maybe that’s what happened in his first marriage, his wife stood back and let Brianna have him (and his problems)?

  43. NJBev says:

    I was sound asleep on the couch
    and Ryan woke me up with his screaming.-
    this kid is a loose cannon!!!
    Is he mentally stable enough to be
    carrying a weapon and fighting a war?

    • Nancy says:

      That’s what I have been saying!!!

      • NJBev says:

        well, you are absolutely right-
        what’s he gonna do?
        shoot a village if they “disrespect” him?!?!

        • Nancy says:


          • cusi77 says:

            Oh, Bev! That is so dangerous! I hope someone watches this program and put him in counseling… he has problems in his head! He is not stable enough to carry a gun and less to go to war! He needs my antidepressants ASAP!

            • NJBev says:

              cusi- he needs more than an anti-depressant.
              Briana clearly needs help as well. An entire life
              spent with an over controlling Mother.
              She never got over Cory- the only other boyfriend
              she ever had. He left her-
              She jumped from the pan into the fire by marrying
              Ryan. She is already afraid of him (Vickie is clearly
              This guy is bad news.
              I wonder if he saw the edit he got tonight? Did he realize
              he was miked and they would use it?
              “I OWN, live here”

  44. LuvMyGals says:

    Oh oh – there’s some bad writing on the wall for Brianna.

  45. boston02127 says:

    I luv the commercial with the little girl at school. Ally…it’s Alexis. Alexis…..it’s Lexi. Lexi….it’s Alexis.

  46. Nancy says:

    These “white girl” problems are getting old.

  47. Nancy says:

    I don’t want to see Vicki’s boobs.

    • Orson says:

      I was getting a quick meal at a Waffle House late one night or was it early one morning where there was this other customer. She was in her 50s wearing a mostly unbuttoned shirt showing some tattoos on her chesticles. I came very close to offering her money to button her shirt up.

    • AZGirl says:

      Nancy posted upthread regarding the bike and therapy.

  48. Kat From Ohio says:

    shut the f*ck up slade. you mak me vom

  49. cusi77 says:

    I was right! Don’t you hate when you are right? Gretchen did the marriage petition to Slade to stay BOTH in another Season of RHOOC!!!!

    • cusi77 says:

      I bet my First born if the marriage petition was not after this finale… Someone? Someone wants my First born? He is so cute! Lol!

  50. Orson says:

    What is with all these adult woman wearing all the glitter? Is this normal? And for the love of Goddess, Vicki, you’re not in your twenties; gravity is not your friend, wear a brar, huh? And is Brooks still your best friend after that lawsuit with your partner he got you involved in? Just wondering. Brianna, Ryan? Get your own place. You get a housing allowance. That way your son would remain glitter free. Oh, and Lydia’s mom? You’re 64 years old, okay? Try to act like you’re an adult. Leave the fairy dust in your purse along with the left handed cigarettes. The summer of love was in 46 years ago.

    Okay, this is the season finale party. They always want some drama for that. I’m surprised HWs of seasons past haven’t shown up.

  51. JumpTheShark says:

    Lydia is the “mouse that roared” , thrown into this brood of vipers. Her normalcy makes the rest of them look like freaks. But seriously, is this a “PARTY” or an intervention? Don’t these people know how to have fun?

  52. Nancy says:

    If someone told me I need to eat a hamburger I’d kiss them!

  53. Kat From Ohio says:

    i really like lydia. and i’m also looking forward to miami. i guess i have fond memories of watching it on painkillers after my surgery! let’s see if i can handle it without the meds 😉

  54. cusi77 says:

    Lydia has the brains of all of them together!!!! She doesn’t need to be taller or heavier!!! You go Lydia!!!!

  55. NJBev says:

    Vickie should not be talking about anybodys boyfriend-
    When she has this shit going on under her own roof??
    He boyfriend, Brooks, is an asshole-
    her SIL, Ryan, is an asshole.
    forget about Slade, Vickie. You have much bigger
    problems at home!!

  56. AZGirl says:

    Go Lydia! The great part of all of this? Lydia husband does not say a word. He knows she can handle herself. He respects her.

    • cusi77 says:

      I noticed that too, AZ! Juicy would have jumped on his throat in no time if Slade talked that way to his wife!

  57. Kat From Ohio says:

    … and now i’m going to go watch the x files. it is astonishingly NORMAL after this exercise in absurdity.

  58. Nancy says:

    Thank God that’s over.

  59. melthehound says:

    For those disappointed that Jac got the fast forward treatment in the recap this morning…

  60. ladebra says:

    Testing out new dress.

  61. Mrs Peabody says:

    omg that man has some serious issues. did you see how fast Vicki stopped hugging Lydia’s mom when Ryan ordered her not to hug her. Something is not right in that house. Run Vicki and Brianna as fast as you can away from him. He is an abusive man and life with him for Brianna is going to be walking on egg shells trying not to get him upset. Who acts like that over a stupid couch. An abusive person does. Red flags going off all over!

    • Mrs Peabody says:

      I can’t get past those duck lips of Gretchen’s why would you do that to yourself? Also it’s time for Brianna to move out. I don’t care for Brooks myself but Vicky is a grown woman and it’s her life!

    • Catseye says:

      Especially being disrespectful to a guest, in his mother-in-law’s home! What a low-class, idiot! Where the heck did Brianna find such a jerk? And with a new baby in the house, I highly doubt Vicki would’ve been dumb enough to purchase a new couch that couldn’t be cleaned.

  62. VV says:

    @ashleeholmes: A LOT of you keep asking me if I’m offended by Teresa Giudice’s blog…….. I’m not upset at Teresa (cont) http://t.co/iAZn4WMFFi

    Not to be outdone by Ashlee. Lauren replies to Asslee:

    @Laurenmanzo: @ashleeholmes hahahahhaa I love this tweet

    • Nancy says:

      Such class they have. (eye roll)

    • melthehound says:

      This from a girl who after she left NJ, her first contact with the social media world, was her tatoo’d ass. The only reason we are hearing from this ho-bag is because she’ll be on the show next week. Then we have to add on top of it, Sourpuss Manzoid, who during the last season they were on together, didn’t care to have anything to do with Ashley because she didn’t like the artwork for her tee-shirts in her then business, that she walked out on the second day of operation (?)… Beg daddy for a lapband, beg mommy for a new business. No wonder Big Al can’t slow down, Sorry but neither of these two are really worth our time.

    • Rebecca says:

      Yeah, her friend Heather is a successful, professional woman with a lovely family. No wonder these stupid bitches have a problem with her.

  63. Rebecca says:

    So if Gretchen has maybe three or four more Botox injections, do you think (hope) she will lose the ability to speak or sing?

  64. Amalfi says:

    Wow… I peeked in earlier, but I really didnt watch this episode (Breaking Pointe was on) the first time around.

    OMG… Ryan need to f*ck off. Who the hell does he think he is. I didn’t read above, but did anyone catch how he said “I own – I live in this house” when Lydia’s mom asked who he was.

    He is a Lifetime I killed my family story just waiting to happen.

    • Catseye says:

      Didn’t he call Vicki a bitch to her face already too? That guy needs to get thrown out on his @ss.
      The scene with Alexis wiping her tears on Jim’s scarf was cute, it reminded me of when Lisa of RHOBH wiped her eyes on the back of Pandora’s sweater.

      • Amalfi says:

        That was sweet. I can’t believe Jim cried.

        And I still can’t believe people still eat it up when Tamra likes them. She is the worst …. though not right this very second or anything. She is lucky this episode has been full of douchebags like Ryan and Slade,

  65. Amalfi says:

    Aww poor Lydia. I would cry too if someone talked to my sweet mom like that.

  66. Sus says:

    So, I’m betting Vicki is afraid to tell Ryan to shove it because he’ll take Briana and Troy out of her life. I’m disgusted. I don’t care how stressed out he is. There’s no excuse for that kind of behavior.

    • Rebecca says:

      I’m watching OC because, well, I’m an idiot, but how stupid is Ryan? You’re on tv. Can’t wait to see this addressed at the reunion.

    • Amalfi says:

      I think about how smart Brianna is (I thought) and realize that she is the product of how she was raised. Peacemaker and good at turning a blind eye and making the motions of being independent, but really unable to be in relationships where someone isn’t telling her what to do.

      Maybe we can do a cult kidnapping and save her and that cute baby. Guys? Anyone?

    • Catseye says:

      Those women are definitely scared of that little jerk. It sounds like Uncle Billy was saying something about this type of stuff happening before, that he “was tired of the bullsh!t.”

  67. Rebecca says:

    Did Vicki’s brother just explain that this is repetitive behavior by Ryan? Oy vey.

    • Catseye says:

      Brianna was a complete fool to run off and marry that guy–that was bad enough. But to have a child with him too? STUUUU-PID.

  68. Rebecca says:

    Does Brianna think Brooks is a danger to her baby because Ryan told her Brooks was trying to sell photos of him? Because we just saw Ryan lie his ass off.

  69. Rebecca says:

    I think Vicki is just trying to keep the peace until Ryan leaves and then she has seven months with her grandbaby before she kicks them out.

    HOWEVER, this is truly conduct unbecoming of a Marine and unless he’s an officer, he can be severely punished for being a prick.

    • Catseye says:

      Hopefully he will be. I have several nephews in the military and I know for a fact NONE of them would EVER address any woman in that manner, even before they were enlisted.

  70. Rebecca says:

    Yes Bravo, we know Tamra’s getting married – AGAIN. Still not watching it. Maybe the next one.

  71. Catseye says:

    Heather is such an obnoxious follower. The minute Queen Mean Girl Tamra decided that Alexis was her friend again, there’s that b!tch Heather sucking up and inviting her and Jim over. Sickening.

    • Rebecca says:

      The bitch yells at sweet Lydia at the reunion. She’s taken over the Queen of Mean title.

    • kokuanani says:

      I can’t stand Heather. She thinks she’s so much “better” than all the other Housewives. Okay, most of them don’t have adequate brains to light a match, but, aside from Vicki, they’re not as SNOTTY as Heather is.

      And permit me to disagree, but I think Lydia is too childish. Yes, she gets off an occasional good comment, but this whole “fairy dust” routine with her mom, and her own “it’s magical” just make me sick. Good grief, you’re a grown woman; act like it.

      Of course with a mom like that, who can blame her?

      • Catseye says:

        I have to agree about the Fairy Dust, I don’t think anyone would appreciate having someone get that crap all over their clothes, nice things especially.

  72. Rebecca says:

    I’m going to start referring to Gretchen as Madame Tussaud. She’s struggling to move her face and it’s painful to watch.

  73. Rebecca says:

    Wow – I didn’t think I could think less of Slade. Where’s that douche jar?

  74. ladebra says:

    This answers that question. Looks like she can still work. Good to hear.

  75. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Raining here in AZ. Nice. High only into the 90’s. Last night OC was really disturbing. Ryan’s behavior was terrible. I was so proud of Vicki’s brother for calling him out. Slade is just a douche. Gretchen deserves him. Go Lydia.
