Ryan Culberson Blames the Editing – NMD
I expected more from Ryan Culberson. Brianna’s marine husband went on a foul mouthed tirade on the season’s finale when Lydia’s mom dared to put her feet on a couch and sip on a glass of red wine. Ryan confronted her, and proceeded to get in her face, call her a b***ch numerous times, and – essentially – had a huge foul-mouthed and scary hissy fit. His excuse – we didn’t see her behavior because of the editing so it’s Bravo’s fault. No kidding. You can read his (poor) excuses here. Apparently the family got a lawyer involved and tried to get Bravo to show the full scene (I assume they asked Bravo to cut the scene – but that’s just the cynic in me.) Obviously this will affect his career. I can not imagine anything Lydia’s mother could have done to deserve the treatment she received from Ryan, and I hope he gets help.
On a happier note, another new blogger is joining the Lynnfam team. One of our regulars, Vilzvet, is taking on the men of Million Dollar Listing – LA. Whoot whoot!
Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles
Episode 1 – Unfinished Business
The Million Dollar Men are back and cockier and more competitive than ever. We begin with Josh Altman offering a proposition to his client Art that he list his gorgeous home for sale simply to flip it and make a profit. Art had just moved into the $6.5 million property mere months ago. Art will only do it if the profit margin will be worthwhile. They agree to list the property for just under $8 million.
Madison Hildebrand checks out a 4,800 square foot Malibu estate belonging to an Anaheim Ducks hockey player who simply does not have enough time to spend in this exquisite property. They agree to list at just under $4 million. Madison is mad crushing on the hunky Sheldon (and who doesn’t love a hockey player?)
Josh Altman hosts a brokers’ open house at Art’s highly-priced home. Several of the brokers have picked up on this top price, but Josh remains confident. Oh, look, a “surprise” visit from Mauricio of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” He also chides Josh that this home will not sell at the $8 million price tag.
Josh Flagg tours a 14,000 square foot 1920’s outdated Beverly Hills mansion with its current owner. With 14 bedrooms and 14 baths, (do you sense a pattern here?) it has a fantastic location right next to the Beverly Hills Hotel and sits on a 1.4 acre parcel. The men are at odds on a listing price: Josh would like to go with $14 million (heheh) but his client believes he can get as much as $16 million. They settle at just under $15 million with the owner adamant he will not take less than $14.5.
We see Josh Altman at home with his now live-in girlfriend Heather, the former assistant of Madison. They seem happy and content to NOT be working together, as she now works with Kyle’s Mauricio.
Madison has a successful open house for the hockey playing Sheldon’s home. He also gets a call from a desperate client who needs a house a.s.a.p. due to flooding. He senses that Sheldon’s Malibu home could be perfect. The couple are immediately in love with this fully furnished paradise. Madison believes Sheldon will agree to a $20,000 per month rental rate. He visits the handsome hockey player to present the lease offer. Sheldon hesitates at first, but realizes this is a win-win situation until a buyer can be found.
Josh F. begins to show the opulent but outdated Beverly Hills estate. Most if not all of the visitors agree the house is only good for tearing down and starting anew. Josh A. also stops in and degrades the home’s value. Madison also pops in. Josh F. and Madison get along well, but Josh A. has nothing but contempt for Madison because of the way his girlfriend Heather exit from Madison’s firm was handled. Heather felt she was owed about $7,000 in commissions, but Madison disagrees. Josh F. later shows the Beverly Hills mansion to Josh A. and his client. Josh A. disses the home openly and both agents give each other the middle finger (really, did that have to be put on camera?) as they part.
Josh A. receives a fast offer for the $8 million dollar home belonging to his longtime client Art. Unfortunately, it is for only $7 million, and Art is firm that at almost a million dollars less than the listing price, he will not be considering this offer. In fact, he informs Josh that he will not entertain any offers less than $7.5 million. A phone call is made, the counter offer is presented, and Josh is victorious! In less than one week’s listing time, Josh has made Art a profit of $1.5 million! The downside is, Art now has to move!
TWO Big Brother Blogs by Leslie Lovette
Beta Brother Household – Sun. Aug. 4 BB15
HOH Comp & Nominations
Sunday night the HOH Comp continues while houseguests resume to trot while holding onto their bull for as long as they can. Endurance is my favorite HOH Comp! Bring on the sweat, bruises, and tears! Elissa is already on her knees 5 seconds into the comp, with one hell of a recovery. Gina Marie and Mccrae look like they’re on a cake walk. The log spins faster, then begins spinning backwards. Within seconds of reverse Spencer falls, followed by Candice, Helen, then shortly Elissa and Amanda. Everyone fell like flies! Seriously? C’mon! 32min in Judd and his Bear shirt fall, immediately followed by Andy. The first 3 people get to open a box with a surprise in it! Spencer gets to talk through a bullhorn until after nominations, so no secret whispering or fighting to stay off the block for him. Candice won $5,000 (I think it’s the only money she’ll win from BB) and Helen won a backyard BBQ with 3 friends! No unitard as were in my hopes, but hopefully one will come soon. It’s kinda funny watching Spencer give his Diary Room with a bullhorn!
Jessie then falls off the log and it leaves Gina Marie and Mccrae. His carnie blood and Pageant queen are now making deals on who to win HOH. Mccrae wants to see pictures of his family & be safe, and GM wants hair dye. Pageant queen wants to win her crown. Both the glitter one and the bleach blonde one on her head. One hour in and they’re still wheelin and dealin. GM even offers Mccrae to give Mccrae & Amanda the HOH room for 3 nights. But carnie blood doesn’t take it. And he probably should have, cuz minutes later he tumbles off the log and down goes his bull into the china cabinet. Gina Marie is uber pumped for her hair dye she jumps and falls flat on her back excited! You think she remembers she’s playing Big Brother?
Gina Marie makes out with Nick’s black and white picture (because hes NOT THERE) and rain dances with Aaryn in celebration. “I’m HOH BIATCHES!” Hoh’itus is already beginning and she hasn’t even gotten the key yet. Because this is highschool and GM & Aaryn think Candice is weird, they want her to go home. I wonder if they think this is like sorority Rush Week? And they choose who they like and don’t like. Have they ever even seen a show of BB?? And that you’re supposed to target the actual threats? Like Amanda or Helen. It is getting really hard to continue watching these airheads. Ignorance, ignorance, ignorance. With everything that comes out of their mouth. How do they function outside the house? Are these truly representations of people out in the real world?? #facepalm
GM receives her key and everyone parades her to the HOH room with Spencer hollerin bullhorn in hand! Andy (and I) have came to a conclusion that Gina Marie is a 15yr old stuck in a 33 yr olds body. Then.. the planets come to a stop, the angel’s begin to sing, and the heavens part… GM’s world all falls into place, the light of joy shines, and her life comes together…the producers gave her a picture of Jesus Christ himself Nick! Candice and Jessie are green in jelly over Aaryn getting to go to Helen’s BBQ. Amanda calls Jessie out on her trying to flip the house on Amanda, Jessie (of course) denies it while trying to kiss Amanda’s ring. Jessie has a breakdown because Amanda knew what was truly going on and we go to commercial with me hysterically laughing Jessie balling her eyes out in the Diary Room. Jessie is then talking truth and calling Mccrae out on being in control. Mccrae denies it, while Amanda waltzes, ass out, into the conversation. Amanda unleashes onto Jessie the wrath of satan. Jessie plays victim, per usual. And the claws are out! Smooth move Jessie. You get into a bitch fest with the biggest bitchthreat in the house and you think you’re not going anywhere? Grab a life vest! Mccrae then attempts to reel Amanda back into the BB game and out of the sorority house. Stop getting into fights, bitching people out, putting a target on your back, over petty girly crap. Sidenote: Why isn’t Amanda wearing pants? And I would LOVE to see Mccrae play this game without the godfather Amanda. Jessie is so far up her own ass trying to find any remnant of sense to tell GM to keep her off the block. Goodluck with that convo Jessie, don’t let go of that life vest!
Nomination ceremony begins, and I love the subtle hint of Nick’s black and white pic behind GM while she begins the ceremony. Very sly CBS. Surprise Surprise, Jessie & Candice are nominated. (I told that girl to grab a life vest!) And we are still in the sorority house of Beta Brother Household. Nothing strategic comes out of GM’s mouth. She blames Candice for being a rat and unloyal, and on and on and on..then she calls Jessie a flip flopper and untrustworthy…and 45 minutes later the Nomination ceremony is adjourned.
And now a Blog of Last Night’s Episode
A squeeking 50 Shades of Orange
Wed. Aug 7 BB15 BBMVP Nom – POV Comp If you didn’t know before, Gina Marie is from New Yawwk! And she tells it how it is. Especially in her 2 hour nomination speech of Jessie & Candice! Amanda & Judd have a fit of the giggles after the Nomination ceremony because of Gina Marie’s 4hr speech. Candice is the tawget this week, GM wants her out of this Beta Brother Household and kicked out of the Sorority House. Up in the popular girls room (HOH) Jessie sits on the same piece of furniture as Mccrae. What a skank right?! Amanda loses her shit, pulls her hair out, and storms out of the room. Why didn’t Mccrae run across the room, jump into Amandas lap, pet her face, smother her in kisses and confess his undying love for her while stating his hatred for Jessie? Amanda scolds Mccrae for not following her around like a puppy, all while Mccrae is itching to scratch through the drywalls and out to the real world. RUN MCCRAE RUN!!! Seriously though, the best thing for his game would be for the house to get Amanda out of the house, and him be left to play his own game. Because we all know his balls game play hasn’t came out since day one.
BBMVP time! Who has America voted as the third nominee this week? Who other…than Queen Bia herself…Amanda! She is confused as to why she would be chosen, while Mccrae is not surprised at all. You get into petty bitchy arguments, run the house, manipulate everyone, and bully your view onto other people and that’s what is going to happen. POV players are then chosen and we have Judd and Spencer in addition to HOH and the nominees. Amanda then gets on the paranoid train, first class ticket to hell, and assumes Judd is MVP and nominated her. He claims he’ll use Veto on Amanda if he wins, and she runs and asks Spencer if he would save her if he won Veto. GM then says if she wins Veto that she would save Amanda off the block, and Aaryn falls over dead.
Mccrae tells GM to keep the noms the same if she were to win Veto (come on people…its GM) Aaryn is afraid she would replace Amanda on the block if the Godfather were to miraculously come down. Amanda’s pissed Mccrae is fighting for her to stay on the block, she’s mad theres oxygen in the air, and that the sun rises and sets. Mccrae is seeing the light, and that the head of the snake, his gf, might need to go. The POV comp begins and Judd walks into his backyard of a pond, frogs, camo, and dirty mud buckets! Frog Darts is the name and frog tossin is the game. When someone has the lowest score they are knocked out of the comp & win prizes from a bucket with the choice to switch prizes with the previous loser. GM is out first and the Veto is in her bucket, but it won’t stay with her for long. Amanda is out next and wins the ‘Cone of Shame’ but trades for the Veto leaving GM with a cone in her future.
During the comp Candice decides she’ll be a rat like GM thinks she is and tells Judd Amanda thinks he’s MVP. Judd is shocked and Amanda calls out Candice. Candice starts talkin smack, Amanda steps over the line, calls Candice Shaniqua and calls herself a racist now. This is just disgusting. The derogatory comments just won’t stop with this group of houseguests, and I question myself for watching this crap. Candice is out next and wins a Bahamas vacay but switches with Amanda for the Veto. Amanda & Candice begin cackling to one another and I put it on mute. I don’t need to listen to Amanda belittle Candice about her race. I just can’t. I’m with Mccrae and want Amanda to just SHUT UP.
Spencer, Jessie, and Judd throw their frogs and Spencer is out with the lowest score. He wins a 50 shades of orange and switches Amanda for the Bahamas Vacay. Jess and Judd are left, Judd scores higher, Jessie is out, and she wins $5,000. However she trades it for the power of veto! Judd as 1st place winner wins a clownitard for one week, however, as common sense, he trades it for the $5k! No need to take the Veto, get blood on his hands and guarantee someone would get upset at him. Now we get to see Candice in a clownitard later! I LOVE the unitards!! I hope she rocks it!
The POV comp is over, Amanda has now painted a target on her back(which will later be sprayed over in orange tanning spray), and even her alliance is uncomfortable with Amanda’s mouth open. After the POV Comp Amanda pulls Mccrae into the have not room and scolds him for speaking reason. I love it because Mccrae calls Amanda out, “You’re so stupid! You’re on the block! You could be going home, you’re being a bully! You were making yourself look like an ass! What were you even trying to prove?” EXACTLY. EXACTLY. EXACTAMENTE! DING DING DING!!!! About damn time you opened your eyes Mccrae…about. Damn. Time.
On the other side of the door, Elissa giggles at Candice talking about her clownitard, and Aaryn loses her shit. Aaryn pushes GM to put up Elissa as a renom due to her and candice’s relationship. Then we get the Clownitard reveal!! Candice totally rocks it and is the cutest clown I’ve ever seen! She looks waay better than Aaryn’s creepy clownie from hell. Werk it girl! Next, Amanda gets 50 shades of orange!! Mystic Spray tan is set up in the backyard and she has to get sprayed anytime BB plays music. She puts snookie to shame. Guidette and oompa loompa’s step aside, Amanda’s in the house! Fo’real though, its disgusting. It looks like she dyed herself in oil and rolled around in dirt.
Gina Marie then gets her cone of shame! It looks like she got some stitches and Big Brother is afraid she’ll lick them. The cone of shame is hilarious! Talk about a hamster in a cage. She’s going to get made fun of in Beta Brother Household Sorority fo’sho. Jessie trying to be a cool kid in Judd’s bear shirt begins the POV Ceromony. To no one’s surprise, Jessie uses the POV on herself, and Spencer is the renom. Amanda’s a paranoid bag of rotten orange juice, Candice is squeeking her nose & clowning around as the mean girls target, Spencer isn’t too worried sitting next to the rotton orange and the clown getting picked on, Mccrae still thinks Amanda’s an idiot, Elissa is praising yoga she’s not on the block, GM doesn’t want to sleep with the fishes next week, and I am rolling my eyes at this entire cast. Will someone grow some balls and get Amanda out? An actual target. Or, will the Beta Brother Household kick Candice out of the sorority house? I wouldn’t be surprised if they forget what they’re all doing and vote out the bearded one. I’ll tell you what I’m excited about…the Double Eviction!! Who will win HOH? Who will they nominate? Who will be targeted out of the house? The double eviction would be the time to switch things up and get out Amanda. Til Thursday night, I leave the group of sorority girls to their hair braiding and backstabbing compliments on their own.
Meanwhile in the house…. by NMD
Big Brother contestant Spencer Clawson shocked viewers of the live feeds by making comments about child porn. The clips have gone viral. Spencer is making fun of contestant McCrae (pretending to be him) when he says “I like to beat off to child porn. Did I ever tell y’all about that? I love it. Beating off to child porn is my favorite thing there is.”Then he continues, “I love it when they’re around three or four years old. My favorite ones are when you can tell they’re in a basement.”
See a clip of this disgusting man in action: http://www.tmz.com/2013/08/07/big-brother-contestant-spencer-cops-child-porn-joke-police-investigation/#ixzz2bN243jhn
TMZ is reporting that Spencer’s home town police are taking this seriously, and I’m sure he can expect some sort of search warrant on his computer.
