Reunion – Part 2 of 3

Group Standing

Vicki says, “That’s what you do in Mexico, you have fun and you act like an idiot!”  Woo hooo!  Let the snarking begin!

 For reasons completely beyond me, and as this episode’s installment of, “I kid you not” – A viewer actually asks Tamra, “What’s it sound like when a stripper bounces his junk off your ear!”  I mean, do we really want to know?  And why on EARTH were we all just reminded of that visual we had worked so hard to get out of our minds, dagnabit!  Heather looks like she is about to get sick… Heather said Terry was laughing at Heather because that night she was sitting behind them throwing anti-bacterial soap at all of them.  Gretchen said she had a glob in her hair.  I just want to quickly leave this subject… Can we please?  

Since Alexis wasn’t in Mexico, she was asked a question that Tamra had to answer, “What’s Jim’s best body part?”  Wait… I didn’t mean to imply they were asking Tamra about Jim… they were asking her about Eddie…lol… and may I just say, “OMG”…  Please enough with the body part talk, people!  Alexis just boastfully says, “I think Peggy said it really well.”  People look blankly at each other while Lydia fills us all in that Peggy (who had dated Jim) had said it was like a big toy or something.  We see footage of Peggy talking about how had dated a lot of girls in “Newport” (Beach)… Alexis immodestly confirms Jim wears a size 13 or 14 shoe.  They make comments about whether or not there’s any truth that the size of a man’s shoe actually correlates to the size of his umm… appendage.  Arm… I’m choosing to believe think that they were talking about the size of his arm.  Yep, yep, yep… 

Alexis body partLydia was asked, “Why are you so harsh on your Mom smoking pot when you’re so quick to order a lemon drop?”  Lydia responds, “If my Mom was drunk all the time I would have an issue with that as well.”  Umm Lydia… the fact that it’s still against the law in California might also be a valid reason, no?  Lydia was also asked if she will be open with her kids about her Mom smoking pot.  Lydia should have said, “Duh” since it was just on national TV, but instead she says, “The cat’s out of the bag on that one.”   Vicki was asked that in light of her own Mom’s intensity, does she think that her Mom could benefit from smoking some weed? Before Vicki even replies, Mr. Stars99 astutely responds, “Well, Ryan could sure benefit from it.”  I die… I mean I’m actually on the floor dying from laughing my fool head off… It’s obvious, my poor husband has been subjected to way too much RHOC…  Vicki says she’s been told that she herself could benefit from smoking weed but that she has never smoked any nor has she been around anyone who has.  She says her Mom is amazing… and no, no weed for Mumsy. 

The subject changes to Tamra and her speech.  Tamra is asked, “What made you want to open up about your past?”   Tamra says that she was originally going to just talk about her divorce.  She wants to stop the cycle of pain… I think many of us think that she’s trying to rewrite herself as less of a b*** so we’ll all watch her wedding spin off series…. Or 4 episodes, whatever it is… lol… Do witches change their spots?  Leopards can’t… I was just wondering about witches? She talks about how no one knew about her suicide attempt… Not Eddie… Not her son Ryan… Not anyone.  She was asked why she never talked about it before.  Tamra says she’s not one to talk about stuff… Dr. Gretchen Freud encourages Tamra to continue to talk about this stuff.  Tamra says that she feels better after having gotten it out in the open.  It’s so easy for Tamra to express her anger but she just can’t express her feelings.  She’s experiencing unconditional love from Eddie.  She gets all mentascental about it… but I quickly remember Eddie loves Tamra just as long as she takes her shoes off before she enters his house and makes sure to turn off all the lights.  Lol… She says that Eddie is very loving towards her and that her family is so mean.  Wow… I guess Tamra shouldn’t anticipate getting that invitation to Thanksgiving dinner anytime soon!

Everyone expresses to Tamra they’re sorry she went through that dark time in her life and that she didn’t’ have any friends around her.  Alexis was asked if her perspective on Tamra changed after hearing about Tamra’s past.  Alexis said that comments she received about Tamra’s apology were kind of 50/50 – Half thought Tamra’s apology was genuine and half didn’t.  Alexis said that she heard, “I’m sorry” and that Tamra seemed very genuine to her.  Alexis says also that you’re a product of your past.  One viewer accuses Tamra of consciously trying to change her image this season and says, “Girl, you’ve been a b*** for six seasons….One speech isn’t changing my mind.” Lol… My thoughts exactly – harsh, but true.  Tamra confesses that it’s way easier for her to be a b***… but she’s trying her hardest.

Andy asks the women, if after watching the 100th episode, “Did seeing yourselves over the seasons make you regret any of the plastic surgery.”  Tamra says, “Just the hair.”  Vicki says this year was a bad hair year for her.  I TOTALLY agree.  Andy asks her why she had the plastic surgery done RIGHT before production started and Vicki basically said she was told she would heal faster than she did. 

Andy wants to know if watching the 100th episode opened any wounds.  Tamra and Gretchen?  Or with Slade?  Gretchen insists that it’s not hard for her to watch Slade with Jo (Slade’s live-in girlfriend/fiancé from Seasons 1 and 2).  No one seems to believe that for a minute.  Gretchen says it’s because everyone has a past and his was just captured on film.  Andy says, “Not even the French maid outfit?” (Of course, he’s referring to when Jo put on a costume and did some ummm dusting for Slade.)  Gretchen insists, “I’m a very secure woman” when it comes to her relationship with Slade.  Another viewer says, “Is Slade crazy? He’s famous for his financial issues and then he gets you a Rolls Royce!”  Gretchen thought it was a very sweet gesture but that she never actually took the Rolls because she just didn’t think it made sense.  Yeah, you would have been lambasted for that for sure and I would be one of the first in line to do so… lol!

EvidenceGretchen was asked why she had such a problem with Alexis going wedding dress shopping when she didn’t seem to have a problem with her at the salsa party.  Gretchen explains that there’s a lot of back story and that Alexis hadn’t been part of anything up to that point of time.  She didn’t understand why she would she be invited to such a personal, special day.  Tamra tells Gretchen it was because she was trying to make amends and move forward.  Gretchen said that up to the day of the wedding shopping event that Tamra was emailing her that she didn’t want Alexis to go shopping with them.  Alexis said to Tamra, “So you really didn’t want me there?”  Gretchen whips out her folder of email evidence that says basically that Tamra didn’t want Alexis at the wedding shopping event. Tamra said that Gretchen was being such a pain about the whole thing and that she was being difficult – that she just told Gretchen exactly what she thought Gretchen wanted to hear.  Tamra confesses that she lied to Gretchen.  Gretchen then calls her out on lying to her because Tamra says she doesn’t lie.  Tamra screeches that at least she owns it when she lies. She tells Gretchen, “You get pissed off when I talk to Vicki… “You get pissed off when I talk to Alexis…”

Gretchen tells Alexis that she’s the only one who’s been honest to Alexis’ face.  Tamra says, “Bring on the tears.” Gretchen quickly obliges.   Heather and Vicki said that they’ve both been honest to Alexis.  Heather doesn’t want to be lumped into this discussion. “I’ll talk about Heather, too” says Gretchen as she reaches for her pile of evidence.  We happened to pause the TV at this moment – and we happened to capture Heather with a great big smile on her face because she knew she was about to enter a battle of wits with an unarmed dimwit.  Gretchen threatens Heather with her file folder of texts…

AlexisAlexis wonders why she’s here if no one likes her.  We all wonder the same thing, Alexis.  However, Vicki and Tamra assure her they like her… They really, really like her. Gretchen thinks it’s obvious why she’s confused because Tamra was telling her one thing and yet doing another.  Tamra tells Gretchen that it’s f**in’ difficult to be her friend.  Evidently, at Alexis’ and Gretchen’s friendship summit, Gretchen showed Tamra’s texts to Alexis… and Alexis subsequently asked Tamra about it.  Tamra told her that she was basically just trying to appease Gretchen.  Alexis says that Tamra immediately owned saying the stuff that Gretchen is alleging that she said.  Gretchen is dumbfounded that Alexis would be okay with it.  Or maybe she’s just dumb.  (I’m being so mean to Gretchen – I’m just so fed up with her, I guess.  I apologize to the Gretchen fans out there.)  Alexis tells Gretchen that she and Tamra have moved on.  Alexis quoted Tamra as saying that at that point Tamra was so exhausted with Gretchen and said, “I only told her what she wanted to hear – I don’t even want Gretchen to know we’re talking right now.”      

Regarding her wedding dress shopping day, Tamra is quoted in an article saying, “Gretchen showing up in a red trench coat with nothing on underneath and her old engagement ring on – She’s just dying for attention – It’s really sad.”  Tamra tells Gretchen that when things are going great in other people’s lives that Gretchen does this kind of thing. Tamra asks Gretchen if she remembers what she did when Eddie proposed to Tamra?  Gretchen honestly didn’t know.  Tamra tells us that Gretchen texted Tamra for the next 4 hours saying how that it should have been Slade proposing to Gretchen.  I guess Gretchen is mad that Tamra stole her engagement storyline.  A couple of days later, Tamra reads an article in “Page Six” and “Life & Style” that says that Tamra’s proposal was fake and that Eddie was paid by Bravo to propose to Tamra.  It seemed like Tamra was blaming Gretchen for that piece of information – and Gretchen never said she didn’t say it.  Andy wants to clarify to Tamra and everyone else that no one paid Eddie to propose to Tamra.  See, now I would have lost the farm on that bet… lol.  Good thing I don’t have a farm.

Heather MalibuOHolyNighttheStarsAreBrightlyShining – We’re talking about “Malibu Country” again… KMN! (Kill me now!)  There are a lot of different opinions about the canceled, “Malibu Country.”  Her Royal Heatherness asks if she can tell the story her own royal way because she’s evidently royally pissed about how Her Heatherness was depicted.  She starts out explaining it and basically says that the truth is… Then she interrupts herself long enough to tell Gretchen she can, “Pull all the emails you want… “ lol… Heather continues to explain that there was a part in “Malibu Country”… They wanted a housewife to do a walk on role…” And Gretchen tries to interrupt but Her Royal Heatherness goes on to say, “No one was offered anything… They were just calling to check availability.  Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I get a phone call from the Executive Producers saying they wanted to write a role for Sara Rue’s friend… and once I said “Yes” to that role they couldn’t have a housewife walk on role anymore.”  It turns out that Heather’s anger comes from Gretchen trying to use this situation to hurt Tamra.  Heather says to Gretchen, “You can twist and shimmy this all you like… You texted us both that you “gave up this role.” Yadda yadda yadda. Tamra asks Gretchen how much she was going to be paid for the role.  Gretchen honestly says that they didn’t get to that part.  Vindicated, Tamra says, “Exactly! Therefore there was no real role.”  Tamra said to Gretchen, “You said you were filming.” 

And, as if a file full of text messages that they’re calling “email” isn’t enough, Gretchen now whips out the actual voicemail from her agent that we’re all going to have to hear.  Before she even plays it, Alexis says that she got that very same phone call but that she didn’t get offered a “role.” The voice on Gretchen’s voicemail says, “I WANTED TO SEE IF YOU’RE AVAILABLE FOR ‘MALIBU COUNTRY’”… and Gretchen’s agent mentions a couple of different days it could be.  Tamra insists that up to the day before dress shopping that Gretchen was using this “role” as an excuse.  Tamra said that she told Gretchen to take the role in the first place.  Tamra is also cranky because Gretchen is lying about it.  Tamra questions Gretchen about why she even wanted to go dress shopping anyway.  Gretchen really couldn’t have seemed less interested and uninvolved because she just stood off away from everyone else in a corner.  Plus, the minute Gretchen left the store she evidently started screaming to Slade, “Get me the f*** out of here.”  Gretchen tells Tamra that since that part wasn’t filmed, that Tamra can’t prove she actually did it.  However, if you notice, Gretchen never said that she didn’t do it… Gretchen just implied that because there wasn’t a recording or a text in a folder about it that Tamra couldn’t actually prove it.  Oh, Gretchen, I’m sure there were production people all over the place who would LOVE to testify about this.  You just need to sit down and zip it.  .   

H and GAs if any of us really care about this anymore… They continue on about this stupid role on a canceled show… Heather starts to clarify the circumstances surrounding her text message that Gretchen had previously called, “So condensending”… Then Heather, in a very patronizing way, corrects Gretchen that she’s sure she meant, “Condescending” Gretchen launches into how Her Royal Heatherness thinks she’s better than everyone else, etc. – but I really can’t hear exactly what she’s saying because I’m laughing so hard.  Heather tells us that she was responding to Gretchen’s original text that said, “Why are they doing this to us? Are they pitting us against each other?”  Heather’s text was just explaining the situation and that’s when the, “No, you were called by casting… I was called by the executive producers” text comes into play.  Gretchen tells her that she wasn’t called by casting but that she was called by her agent.  Heather exasperatingly says, “Well, your agent was called by casting and your agent called you – Same thing.”

Andy asks Gretchen, “Do you consider any of these ladies a friend to you?”  Gretchen responds, “Yeah, I consider Lydia a friend and I consider Heather a friend.”  And the first words we hear from Lydia for the last 20 minutes were when she raised her cheerleader pom poms and says, “Team Gretchen Couch!!!”  Then she adds a meek, “Just kidding.”  Lydia totally cracks me up.  Gretchen tells us that she would like to be friends with Tamra but that things are weird.  Gretchen says that she doesn’t hate Alexis but there are things that happened.  No one seems to know why Gretchen stopped being friends with Alexis.  Alexis thinks she’s just disposable to Gretchen – That when Gretchen didn’t need Alexis anymore she just disposed of her.  Alexis points out that when Lydia first came on the show, Gretchen was really rude to her because she didn’t need her then – but now she does so she’s her friend. 

Alexis reminds Gretchen that after Bunko night around 2:00 am that she specifically asked Gretchen how she could be friends with Tamra after all she’s done to her.   Alexis said Gretchen’s response was, “Because I’m just scared of her.”  Gretchen says she never said that. Okay, now I ask you, who are we going to believe?  Especially, since none of us even knew about this particular conversation but concluded that very same thing on our own just by watching the season unfold.

Gretchen still remains in the hot seat and is called out on how she almost apologizes to people.  Gretchen tends to say, “I’m sorry you feel that way” rather than a straight, “I’m sorry.”  Tamra insists that Tamra is always the first one to say, “I’m sorry.”  Gretchen puts her big girl panties on and says that’s she’s hearing what they’re saying and that she will work on it.  Whoa.  Gretchen continues on by saying that she doesn’t trust Tamra right now because she feels that Tamra says what she thinks people want to hear in the moment but behind the scenes she’s texting and stuff. 

No LaundryIn the quick 30 second fake out, Lydia is grilled about not knowing how to work her washer and dryer.  It turns out that her maid does all of her laundry.  Vicki asks her what she did in college and Lydia said she did her own laundry.  But why should she do laundry when she has other more important stuff to do?  She knows how… she just doesn’t do it. How many of us think that Heather does her own laundry?  Anyone?  Anyone?  How many of us would gladly give up doing laundry if we had the resources to pay someone else to do it?

Okay, we’re now transitioning to the “Name Calling” portion of our program.  Andy says that Alexis started a firestorm with just one word, “bully.’  Cue footage containing clips about every time Alexis talked about the others “bullying” her.  Andy is curious about where Alexis is at right now with her use of the term, “bully.”  Alexis says that the word doesn’t matter because they’re all in a different place now, and they’re over it.  Alexis also doesn’t feel like she’s a victim, as one viewer put it.  At this point, Alexis doesn’t want to use one word to describe it the situation. Whether you call it a bully, call it being a mean girl, call it being attacked, or call it being ganged up on… Alexis is just expressing what her feelings were about it at the time.  Gretchen said, “But you did put a word on it.”  Alexis acknowledges that she did say, “Bully.”  As proof, Alexis brings up the situation when Tamra was physically throwing Alexis out of the dinner from hell at CUT Fitness Studio… And Gretchen was applauding wildly about it at a time when Alexis was very hurt by the whole situation.  Heather tells Alexis that the whole “bullying” thing was so spun out of control by her and that she perpetuated it in a way that was way worse. 

Talking over Heather, Andy asks Alexis if she thought the “terrible three” (Tamra, Gretchen and Heather) had an agenda to do something to her that night.  Alexis said that she walked into the party and got cold, cold and cold from everybody.  She wanted to be there for her friend.  Alexis said she realized that she went to the party as Vicki’s plus 1.  She knew the invitation didn’t come directly from Tamra but the first thing she did was to walk up to Tamra and give her a bottle of champagne to congratulate her on her new business.  Alexis realizes how hard it is to start a new business.

Gretchen starts rudely talking over Alexis.  Alexis asks Gretchen, “Why can’t I be happy for Tamra?” This is all just too confusing to Gretchen.  Then, in the classic statement of the night, Alexis says to Gretchen, “Everything’s confusing to you, Gretchen.” Omg… this was just so, so funny coming from Alexis… lol.  Alexis goes on to say, “Unless you have a document or a text or a fricken’ email everything’s confusing to you.”   Whoa… Alexis continues by calling Gretchen a liar.  She then demands that Gretchen tell her what she’s done to her that would warrant losing a friendship over – because there’s not a single piece of footage of Alexis saying or doing anything to Gretchen.  She pleads with Gretchen, “Please tell me.”   Gretchen says, “Because you’re fake on camera.” Wha…wha… what?  That’s it?  Wow.  There’s some talk about how Gretchen is the one who’s fake on camera.  Some of the talk must have come from Vicki, who is seated next to Andy because he asks Vicki, “What do you think Gretchen does that’s fake on camera?”  Vicki immediately responds, “Her engagement… If we weren’t filming it wouldn’t have happened.”  “Last year Gretchen didn’t want toGretchen marry him” says Alexis.  Vicki thinks the elaborate engagement was done for TV.  Lydia says there’s been a lot of talk about how Gretchen’s storyline was so weak this season that she wanted to do it for that reason.  Heather says that it was, “A life moment” and that when you watch it – it just seemed hollow.  Gretchen starts blubbering about how they’re all taking away a very special moment to her – And Tamra is quick to say she doesn’t want to do that – because that’s what was done to her.  Gretchen was asked when they’re getting married.  Gretchen says she is just trying to enjoy the engagement… As Gretchen continues to cry, Heather clarifies that the comments were not about whether or not they should get married… but rather they were about the timing of the proposal. 

Heather continues to call it, “A Life Moment” – And that Gretchen said she had her “Nearest and dearest” friends there and none of the housewives were there.  Really, Heather?  You guys have not been nice at all to Gretchen this season.  Plus, every single event that you guys attend end in some big fight of some kind.  Could it possibly be that she wanted to control her environment on one of the most important days of her life?  Dagnabit… You have me defending Gretchen again….I HATE that!  Gretchen brings up some crap about how Tamra was quoted as saying Gretchen is a horrible singer.  Tamra said she never said she was a horrible singer.  Evidently, Tamra was asked if Gretchen was going to sing at her wedding and Tamra said, “No, Have you heard her sing before?”  After I stop laughing I start wishing someone would remind Gretchen that Auto-Tune is her friend.  Gretchen comes to the conclusion that everyone else’s idea of friendship is not consistent with her own idea of friendship.   

T consoles GGretchen was asked if Slade bought her a ring.  She tells us that they “went in together” and bought the ring.  Their initials are on it… G and S… Mr. Stars99 says that, “B.S.” would be more appropriate.  I think he should be writing tonight’s blog…lol.  Gretchen starts sobbing as they play footage of her grandiose engagement… But there’s no hint of an actual tear.  Tamra walks over and sits on the other couch to console Gretchen.  Lydia, Alexis and Vicki just shake their head.  Gretchen becomes overly dramatic with the way she’s scrunching her face and trying to sound all sad and stuff.  She just can’t believe they would say that her engagement was all made up.  She’s very sad.  She explains that it took her so long to get to the point where she wanted to become engaged to Slade – and the one thing she couldn’t imagine from the others was that they would say it was all made up.  Gretchen was assured that they know they love each other but they just question the timing of the proposal.  No one wants to hurt her and everyone is saying their sorry.  Gretchen wonders if they knew that it was hard on her that she didn’t want them to be there that night.  Heather assures Gretchen that hearing her say that makes them feel better that she wanted them there or that she even thought about them being there. 

 In a stunning shocker of the night, Gretchen says that the thing that hurts her most was that Alexis wasn’t there – because Alexis had told her she believed that Slade was “The One” from the very beginning.  Alexis doesn’t understand how Gretchen can say that right now after the way she’s treated her all season.  Alexis starts to cry and has actual tears in her eyes.  Alexis says through her tears that she’s truly happy for Gretchen’s engagement and that regardless of everything that she misses the “Gretchen” that was her best friend.  Alexis says that her mind is, “Doing spins right now.”  I blame it all on that last triple lutz, double toe loop combination jump Gretchen Kerrigan Hamill Witt completed on the ice. 

 Congratulations, you guys!  We’re finished with Part 2 of a 3-Part Reunion!  Woo hoo!

    Gretchen is totally fake in terms of no tears and exaggerating, but there was a hint of real emotional distress of some sort, though she milked it for all it was worth. She is slimey. And perfect for Slade! Just hope that they don’t procreate.

    Tamra is 100 times worse because you can hear that fake lilt in her voice that little children use when they are fake crying and lying about getting hurt to deflect punishment. She is a MASSIVE jerk. And that is the nicest 4 letter word I can write about her.

    Alexis looked genuinely surprised that Tamra said shit about her after Tamra pretend made up with her. Lexi is so out of her league here.

    Lydia needs to pick ONE cute thing and stay with it. Baby voice, cute attitude OR hair wreaths. Damn gurrrl.

    Heather needs someone to politely remove the stick up her ass.

    Vicki is gross and cannot string two words of truth together.

    Thankfully Laurie fetched her broom and flew away.

  2. chismosa says:

    Lol at your Lydia thing —- hahahaha! 😆😆
    😆

  3. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. OC was good last night and Miami was ok. But what did they have in common last night? 2 liars were on our TVs. Cant wait to read. Have a great day everyone.

    • chismosa says:

      Powell I know you disagree but I think we’ll see in future episodes and seasons (god I hope not) or in the press that Lea counts as a liar as well.

      We know she lies about the work on her face at least 😷😷

      Have a terrific Tuesday

      • Rebecca says:

        Lea’s the biggest liar of them all. And what about the fake scene as she writes her “novel” to expose all the Miami socialites on their bad behavior? She wonders why she doesn’t have any friends. I’ll answer it – she’s a fake, no class, condescending, mean spirited, self-important, gossipy, bitter, narcissistic, delusional piece of shit that no one can trust with their private lives!

        “Adriana did have my back” so she went to a rag and had an article written to hurt her son’s best friend’s mother? What a harpy!

      • Powell says:

        Chismosa I like Lea but will not count her or any of the others out when it comes to lying.

  4. LaineyLainey says:

    Good Morning, Errrbody!!!

  5. cdnfillie58 says:

    “Gretchen showing up in a red trench coat with nothing on underneath and her old engagement ring on” maybe this was discussed before and I missed it..but…does anyone know why she would do such a fool thing?

    • SoutheastVA says:

      Because she’s a needy, no class fool.

    • Mene Seela says:

      “Gretchen showing up in a red trench coat with nothing on underneath ….”
      A RED trenchcoat?
      I never heard of such a thing!
      How pervy. Which is exactly (nothing on) where she went with it.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      Who exactly shows up to a Bridal shop nakkid wearing a red trench coat and a dead fiancé’s engagement ring??? Even curiouser…why didn’t all the “ladies” and Andy of course jump all over that ..

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        would’ve been a whole lot more interesting than the regurgitated “Malibu Countrygate” 😛

    • Amalfi says:

      I can’t believe how much stuff people accused Gretchen of that she never denied.

      1) You sat on that dude’s lap and had your tongue down his throat… “Yeah, but does that mean I was having an affair with him?”
      2) You wore a trenchcoat with nothing underneath “Yes, but I wasn’t trying to take away attention from you…
      3) You told Slade to help get you the F*– out of the wedding dress shopping “Yes, but that wasn’t on camera, so you can’t prove it.”

      ???

      Oh. My. God. What a dunce.

      • Laineylainey says:

        But is that really duncey?? IS IT? Does sitting on a lap constitute an affair, does a red trench coat prove you are starved for attention? Canyou prove that the Get me theF outta here really happened without a voicemail, text,or email? She is ON THE CASE. Gretchen Christine PURSUER OF PROOF. Oh dang, THAT’S her spinoff show!! Somebody call Andy!

  6. lulu says:

    Morning!!!!!! Dh refuses to “watch” RHOM so we caught up on the bridge instead. I really hate that as “filler” they include stupid plots like the “cheating.”. Any ideas on who the “serial” killer is? I have a strong suspician that I’ll keep to myself. Great series.

    Powell did you catch mistresses? Looks good will watch at some point today after my errand running.

    • Stars99 says:

      I have a few “The Bridge” episodes on the DVR… are they worth seeing?

      • thedesigndiva2 says:

        Stars99…. YES YES YES…. it’s a good show…you’ll like it..I have to watch it by myself…mr ford asks too many questions when it’s on…drives me NUTTY……

        hugs and peace
        diva

      • lulu says:

        Yes!!!! Its a good series. Well written too.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Be warned, it starts out slow, and you need to pay attention, puh leeze cause they switch from English to Spanish at the drop, and they mumble. But it’s getting juicy!!!

        • chismosa says:

          Lainey the English mumbling is worse than the Spanish mumbling !!!

          Well, I’m not used to the Mexican accent so that is hard for me. The Colombian wife I understand more except I don’t get why she uses the “j” sound so much, as I always associate that with either argentines, Uruguayans and Paraguayans
          Jo instead of yo

          She’s such a great actress. Maria Full of Grace was a fantastic film

          • Laineylainey says:

            The English mumbling makes me rewind more, but I am from Tx so the spanish and english accents are familiar. At least we have subtitles for the Spanish, if its too mumbly.

    • chismosa says:

      Lulu Lainey blew my mind with her theories the other day.

      Ps did you watch The Killing this season??

      • lulu says:

        Nope waiting for who killed “Rosy Larson” killed it for me.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Hi Chismosa, the previews make me think all the “clues” from last week were red herrings….

        • chismosa says:

          Interesting……

          Ok good. I hope it’s ORIGINAL
          Heehee

          Lulu🔼🔼🔼— this season of the Killing was much better. Still slow, still like molasses but I promise you, the end is worth it. That Joel Kinnaman makes it all worth it he’s so yummy

          Lainey I had posted last week that I’m sorry if I ruined any of the Killing for you, but honestly I don’t think I did.
          So sorry !!!

          • austin1963 says:

            The Killing has been awesome always. No, it’s not reality television, but it’s quality. What seems slow to one person is just thoughtful and in depth to another. I hope they keep making them just the way they have been.

  7. Big thanks to MTh for holding down the fort while I’m on vacation.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      MTH did an AWESOME job but he likes to make me laugh so I snort pop thru my nose onto my keyboard. Tell him to not be so funny……or maybe I’ll just stop drinking or eating while I read here.

      • melthehound says:

        How about if I just put a disclaimer at the top of the recaps to remind people about consuming liquids? I’ve never really thought I was that funny that I could make someone expel liquid. I’m happy with an occasional snort. Glad you enjoy the recaps (the one above is from Stars99 though 😉 ).

    Omg forgive the rudeness Starsy!!! Another snarktactular recap. Notice that everyone except gretch doesn’t reakly take things too seriously. But miss “ill be watching you” level of psychoticness Gretchen does. She can’t explain away her fake engagement, for relevance she would saw off her foot for a storyline.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I know!!! they could call that episode “my left foot”….oh wait, that title has been taken. I think it was an Oscar winning movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097937/ I’m sure G would give us an Oscar worthy performance. “All of the sudden, sunthin happened to my left foot!”

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks so much, Skip to My Lulu… It’s like Gretchen is so far out of the loop you ALMOST feel sorry for her… not really.. but just a lil… It so griped me that her BIG beef with Alexis was that, “she was fake on TV.” Really, REALLY? I just can’t help but snark at her… I try… but she keeps giving me ammo… it would just be not a good use of resources if I overlooked the opportunities, no? lol

      • lulu says:

        Lol starsy!!! Gretchen is the gift that keeps giving first what nonsense comes out of her mouth. Then that face!!!!!! She makes it too easy 🙂

  9. plainviewsue says:

    Another fab recap Stars!!

    I am in awe of Gretchen’s face. It is so frozen; there is no possible movement at all. You cannot tell when she is happy or sad. If she’s paying attention or completely zoned out. She cries, yet no tears come out.

    Alexis, IMO, is the most genuine of them all. Yet Gretchen calls her fake. Her tears were real. Her expressions were real. And even with all her botox, her face moves!!!!!

    Tamra is how many years older than Gretchen, and now looks younger than her. Vicki’s face has settled nicely.

    I don’t like Gretchen. Never have. Not a fan of Heather’s, but I did find it amusing when she took it upon herself to explain Malibu Country (who else thinks this show will eventally come back to television???!).

    Watching the coming attractions, does anyone know why Lydia is not on the couch when Brianna and Brooks are on? I used to love Brianna. She disappointed me so much on last season’s reunion as well as this season.

    • Rebecca says:

      Gretchen doesn’t understand much of anything. The ladies explained things to her over and over again and she wasn’t getting any of it. I think that right there that proves that Alexis is not fake off camera, that she is the opposite of what ever Gretchen would say about her.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      The folks at “Malibu Country” must cringe every time these HW people invoke their name… or maybe they die laughing. They call each other up..” hey, .check out the loser housewives”. (except maybe they’re not losers in comparison, as Malibu country was cancelled and RHOC folks are still fully employed)

    • designernailsdiana says:

      I like Alexis and she looked Gorgeous!
      I did chuckle at her comment when Gretchen was confused and Alexis said you’re always confused unless you have a text or email to look at. That is so telling of how many lies G has told as she can’t keep them straight.
      I like Lydia too. When she did the “Team Gretchen Couch” I LOL’d and then she added “Just Kidding”.
      I can’t wait to see Briana and Brooks go at it. I detest Brooks anyway so I’m ready for a take down of that slimey jerk.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Alexis was clever with that comment. Not bad, Lexi!

      • kokuanani says:

        Did you catch the clip from the preview of Part 3 where Vicki “quits the reunion” [again]?

        What an absurd phony she is! I can’t understand why/how Andy tolerates her.

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, PV Sue… I agree and I think Gretchen was so pretty to start out with… but it always jars me at how old she says she is… both she and Kim Z from Atlanta make me never ever want to have surgery… They’ve both aged so ungracefully…

  10. grassynowell says:

    After he accidently caught the tail end of the OC reunion last night, I asked my husband whether he would like me to record a song of love for him (ala Gretchen). For some reason he turned me down. So I cried (no tears, of course).

  11. cusi77 says:

    Good morning everyone! Super Blog Stars!!!! I have never seen a compulsive liar in action like Gretchen is… She is caught in a lie and she manages to dig a bigger hole to cover a little one…

    I am liking Alexis more an more.

    Miami looks fake, good fake for entrainment and not taking them seriously. ( Disclaimer: I reserve my right to change my mind in any moment in the future, from Miami, New Jersey, New York, OC and BH!!Lolol!)

    • kit9 says:

      Alexis, for all the snark directed at her by Tamra for not being bright, is always good in these reunions–able to make good coherent points on the spot. Nobody dumb can do that. For me, thought, nothing so far can beat Lydia calling Her Highness, Princess. That was priceless. Although, Gretchen and her most-unconvincing-attempt-to-fake-cry-in-the-history-of-unconvincing-fake-crying comes in a close second. It’s just laughable that Tamra call Alexis fake with that absurd ‘engagement’. Let me get this straight, last year Gretchen said she couldn’t marry Slade until his debt was taken care of but this season after Slade lands a crummy part-time job and she’s all gung-ho, marriage wise? A job which he apparently no longer holds. But, Alexis is the fake one.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      Cusi I agree with your disclaimer.

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Cusi77… I really don’t think Gretchen can keep track of what she says or what is the actual truth anymore.

  12. cusi77 says:

    OMG! Kim Z is having twins! They found out today!

    News for kim having twins

    Kim Zolciak confirms she’s having twins with husband Kroy Biermann

    New York Daily News ‎- 1 hour ago

    It’s double trouble for Kim Zolciak who is expecting not one but two babies. “I’m having twins and I couldn’t be more excited,” she told E! News

    I hope I put correct the link…

  13. AFTERNOON ALL…. great recap…. LOL …. glad your computer all fixed and back to “snarking”..
    we did TV dinners last night and mr ford watched the reunion with me… he also watched last years Miami reunion with me… and of course he had the question that threw me…
    hey diva hun… do those hws read the Lynn blog you hang out at ??
    um ,,, what ???
    those gals must read that blog…they all have FOLDERS…. btw hun…do you still do FOLDERS !!! I almost snorted mac n cheese…. the ever so quiet ..kinda hangs in the corner mr ford…. actually pays attention in a unique way …
    he just shakes his head whenever Gretchen tries to speak… and the FAKE crying… then the singing….just pushed him over the ledge…..now he knows why I call Bravo my mindless entertainment…

    we spent most of the episode of Miami laughing…
    Adrianna is ssssoooooo full of sheep chitz….WHAT A LIAR…. spin spin spin…. and Lea…another prevaricating orator…. and to top it off…she’s writing a BOOK…. whoa….pretty sure she’ll be run out of town after its release….
    can’t wait to SEE the reason why Ana is not a full time HW this season… I’m thinking it has something to do with the SA she is dating… and conflicts with Lea and Roy…..

    Longmire was really good last night..next week season finale…looks like a good one…
    Inkmaster tonite !!!!!!
    The Bridge on Wed,,,,

    BB…hope your Mom feels better soon…good news about no surgery…
    off to make a dinner menu for the week..then off to grocery shop…before the next round of monsoon rains come…UGH

    DONT FORGET…BLUE MOON TONITE…

    • JumpTheShark says:

      Kurt Russell is his prime…(swoon).
      IMO, No one want to befriend Alexis because she is pretty…no other housewife wants to be filmed beside her for hours and hours, because they will suffer by comparison.

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks TheDesignDiva2… It’s fun to snark, no? We watch Longmire, too… It’s such a great show… I love well acted shows… The plot lines are pretty interesting… and you never really know what’s going to happen next.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Hey there, Divalicious! I have to say, I haven’t missed Ana not one bit. Hadn’t even noticed her absence from the episode til I came here and folks were mentioning her again. Ok, ummm..what does SA stand for? The A is for Attorney. But the S?

  14. Powell says:

    Stars tell Mr. Stars we have caught him. He’s an OC watcher and can’t deny it. 🙂

    • Stars99 says:

      lol… Mr. Stars99 is only an RHOC watcher under duress… lolol… His threshold for reality shows is way lower than mine so I really have to pick and choose what to subject him to… We’re watching “Get out Alive with Bear Grylls”, “Duck Dynasty”, and “Top Chef Masters”… and he’s on TV remote control duty when I’m blogging RHOC. He’s a keeper! lol

  15. VV says:

    I don’t watch RHOM … officially. So, don’t have enough data to see through all these characters. Adriana is giving me the Melissa vibe. Sleek, sleek when she lies. IMO.

    • chismosa says:

      They are VASTLY different.

      Boy to be a straight haired brunette who sings at all gets you in trouble lol

        Woopsie forgot to sign off as

        I’m going to try to change my name when I sign in on the PC

        • Laineylainey says:

          You mention someone else waaaaaay more than Melissa Gorga. Perhaps you are OWT? And not OwMG? What do you think? Your word, Chismy, our self proclaimed nickname, just making an observation. 👀

          • Laineylainey says:

            *Your nickname…

          • chismosa says:

            Well like a handful of others have said its very pointed when only a very few of us have the dissenting opinion

            So I guess call me obsessed. It was just not said in a nice way …..

            But unless you’re Jill don’t call me ASHY!

            • Laineylainey says:

              Ok,,haha, I won’t. But keep your tootsies lotioned up!!! At all times, cause you never know when the ashy inspector will come around.

              Sorry, I guess I missed something with all this obsessed stuff; I’ve only see it lately comments. Didn’t realize it was a thing. 🙇

          • chismosa says:

            Lainey I also think to be obsessed with someone you have to essentially “like” them.
            So so far im OMG and not and never (except S1) OWT // OTG

      • VV says:

        OMG! You do not! Really? Are we gonna be at odds with another franchise?

        • chismosa says:

          But VV have you watched Adri?

          To base things on old stuff or what is others’ opinions — ehhhhhhhhhh

          • VV says:

            No, I’m basing it on her demeanor, body language, face expressions when she talks. Somehow I see Pinocchio’s nose……….growing.

            • chismosa says:

              Okkkkkkkkkkk

              I find her to be one of the most intellectual of all the HWs in all franchises
              (Not that that has to == likeability)
              Her expressions don’t annoy me, maybe it’s a Latin thing I don’t know. Plus she’s processing like 5 languages in a much faster and efficient way than most to all the current HWs. Lol
              She’s like Nabokov I tell ya!

              Draconian antics INDEED Lea ✋

  16. Powell says:

    “Enter a battle of whits with a dim whit.’. Well I’ll say I am really liking that saying Stars and it soooooo fits Gretchen.

    • Stars99 says:

      Giggles… Yeah… I felt kinda bad snarking so much at Gretchen… lolol… I just couldn’t help it.

      Radaronline, VV? I don’t care if its true, you get 5 minutes in the corner in timeout for posting a link to those morons.

      • VV says:

        I know, but it sure sounds like Ryan and Brooks…. I wonder if it’s legal to record a conversation on Cali?

        • VV… oh that’s def RYAN with Brooks…
          http://www.bc-llp.com/Legal-Guides/Illegally-Recording-a-Conversation.shtml

          It is also illegal to record face to face conversations w/o the other parties consent…..
          so I wonder who recorded this and sent it in to ROL.. RYAN ??
          If so ..he’s committed a crime that I am pretty sure the USMC will not be pleased about…and of course..Brooks will have legal recourse against him….these people are so STOOPID……

          hugs and peace

            VIVAAAAAAA LAS DIVAAAAAAASSSS!!!

            • sooooo… this whole recording of Ryan w/ Brooks kinda blows the theory that Ryan hated Brooks and didn’t want anything to do with him….I wonder if the two of them were out drinking together…. two peas in a pod for sure…..Ryan trying to DEFLECT his own bad behavior for sure….
              ASSCLOWN ..the two of them….

              hugs and peace

              • VV says:

                If this is his way of trying to score points for his irrepressible behavior, Houston we have a problem!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Hi VV, California requires two party consent.

          My guess it’s when they were in Mexico since I can’t think of another time where Brooks and Ryan would have hung out together since he’s not allowed in Vickie’s house.

          IMO, Ryan’s trying to throw more shade on Brooke’s and redeem himself over allegations of DV and his blow up at the party , especially when he is recorded saying how he doesn’t abuse women. Too bad he knew that HE was being recorded and the whole time he was clearly trying to bait Brookes.

          For Ryan to go around secretly recording people..and to install a security system in SOMEONE ELSES HOME – and have the video surveillance sent to HIM suggests to me he has issues with insecurity and a need to control.

          • VV says:

            I wonder where his family is from. He doesn’t strike me as you regular Coto de Caza resident.

            I remember when I used to watch OC 2 or 3 seasons ago, when Brianna told Vicky she was thinking about joining the military. I wonder if she was dating Ryan then.

            • VV… Ryan is a native from N.C. and Brianna was not dating him when she talked about joining the Military… he had only been divorced from his first wife for 14 months when they got married…. the guy is a loose cannon for sure….USMC is NOT happy with him at this time…more to come…winks

              hugs and peace

              • VV says:

                  VV…hehehehehe…oh Ryan’s folder is NAVY BLUE…. USMC is trying to distance themselves from him right now….I give him and Brianna maybe ?? till the end of the year before they announce the ” separation “…… winks

      Thanks Rebecca,
      I just ordered the OIL. I typically don’t buy housewife products unless it’s something I am genuinely interested …(I only bought the SG margarita before…and it was about the BOOZE lol).

  19. designernailsdiana says:

    Stars THANK YOU for the recap of the Reunion from Malibu Country or some other place where women have frozen faces and can’t cry tears. I hear Restasis helps with making real tears. Well the ad on tv says it does.
    You nail these women so well in your snark. I’m sorry you lost the “farm”, but you should never bet on a housewife EVER!
    My hubby happened to be in the room when I was watching RHONJ and when he saw Tre he said I can’t stand her she is the worst she lies all the time. My mouth literally fell open. I said Umm Melissa is the one everybody thinks is the liar. He asks which one is she? ….I kid you not!
    He catches glimpses now and then so I laugh when he says stuff like that from his limited viewing. He is so sweet he’ll tell me “Turn on your housewives show if you want, it won’t bother me while I’m on my ipad” He really is the bestest husband I’ve ever had. hahaha

    • Stars99 says:

      lol DesignerNailsDiana… You’re so welcome… and I’m telling you… if “Malibu Country” comes up one more time… Somebody’s gonna hafta die… and it isn’t going to be me or hubster… lol

      • Powell says:

        If I was Reba I’d get my lawyers right on it to get paid cause “Malibu Country” was mentioned more on OC than on ABC.

    • Powell says:

      Restasis. 🙂 Your my shero Diana.

    • chismosa says:

      That’s a mild reaction to what I get when Teresa is on screen in my house — and no one here knows 1 itty bitty thing about housewives and teams and ‘hugging’

      Lol!

  20. Powell says:

    So its ok w/Gretchen to be ok w/Tamra and her apology of all the nasty things Tamra accused Gretchen of & called her but its not ok for Alexis to be ok w/Tamra’s apology for what Tamra said to Gretchen? Why didn’t Gretchen tell the truth that she just wanted Tamra all to herself, that she didn’t want Tamra to make up w/Vicki nor Alexis. Sheeesshh. I’m getting a headache.

    • Laineylainey says:

      She’s borderline SWF with the territorial shite.

    • Dixie says:

      Gretchen knows that Tamra is sneaky and persistent and somehow she will get Alexis to spill everything she knows about Gretchen. Tamra with that information will be formidable.

  21. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Thank you Stars for the recap. Good to have NMD back. Gretchen is dumber than dirt and Bravo needs to loose her. Love Lydia. She is….wait…I can’t believe I am going to say this about a HW. SHE IS HONEST. So is Alexis. Tamara bitch came out last night and I cracked up when she yelled “Here come the tears” to Gretchen. That is the Tammy we know and love.
    Can’t wait for the smack down between Brianna and Brooks.
    Off to work.

  22. Buttercream says:

    Good Afternoon All,
    Great Re-cap! Enjoyed the calling out of Gretchen-no-tears-both paid for ring- fake-engagement!
    Alexis did have the best line of the night calling out Gretchen ….

    Wonder if Gretchen is not coming back next year due to her only friends on the show are (she claims) Heather, who she fights with, Lidy who has called out her fiancee as a secondary liar for the “eat a cheeseburger” comment …let’s see what Brianna has to say to Brooks da Crook!

    Longmier – good ending, looking forward to next week

    Something to help everyone get over a bit of their Housewife hang-over, try watching Who Do You Think You Are tonight on TLC at 8 p.m. CDT. Every episode they have shown this summer has been so great. Tonight it’s Chris O’Donnell. I love history, geneology and great stories. This show has all three!

    Hi everyone…thanks for the great blog stars.

    The other day I was at the grocery store and I see this teeenaged boy with who I imagine was his mom and sister…and he was wearing a FREE TRE…..t-shirt. I about died….and then asked him if I could take his picture.

    I will try to post it later, was I want to block his face out first before I put it online.

    • Nancy says:

      That is too funny. Did he buy it himself?

      • chismosa says:

        Yeah I’m shocked it was a boy….. Didnt know boys watched HWs!

        Maybe it was that stupid kid that used to call Andy all the time on WWH. Wonder whatever happened to him

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          LOL- No, it definitely wasn’t that Ben Wiener kid. This boy was really thin and tall with long blond hair. Here in the OC there is this subculture called ‘scene’ where the kids all dress kind of androgynous and the boys wear skinny jeans and odd shirts.

          He seemed like a nice kid thou and his mom(?) seemed more interested in the show.

    Andrea Schneidermen was sentenced to 5 yrs for perjury. She spoke to the court and was sniffing and supposedly crying but there were no tears. A body language expert said it wasn’t real crying. Not just the absence of tears but absence of facial expressions and body language that are characteristics of crying . She said she regrets not telling her husband that her boss Hemy made advances, that she didn’t report him to HR, that she didn’t quit her job. I feel sorry for her young kids. There father is dead & now their mom is going to jail.

  28. Powell says:

    Stars & Diana got their hubbies watching the crazy Housewives. That’s so funny. 🙂

  29. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Ok so I just watched the reunion-Gretchen is an idiot! No one said that the”engagement” was made up -they all said she was a phony to do it on TV and that’s true! She did it at the time to have a storyline and try to get a spin off…she can dry cry all day long but she knows what they are saying and she knows its true!!! And I still don’t know why the eff she is so mad at Alexis!!!

      Are the fugs related to Jan ?

      • VV says:

        Chianina,
        I read somewhere that Bald guy is Penny’s cousin. Remember Penny’s relatives own Lookers.
        I don’t think there is a family connection between Jan and Penny. They know each other because they both own Salons. So, I guess they see each other at events that have to do with that industry etc etc………………………………………………Oh, and they both knew of Melissa way back 😉

        • chismosa says:

          Got it —- thanks. Not sure if there was some other connection I was missing

          It’s so funny we don’t have the “Chateau” hair salon anymore ? Remember in season 1 that was what started so much hullabaloo — and that Dina may have worked there in her past ? Danielle stalking Dina getting her hair done there haha.
          That would be fun to still have that salon.

          CaCa is there now right ?

  35. Rebecca says:

    Whoa…. I just realized. Gretchen probably used her inheritance from Jeff to buy her new engagement ring.

    That’s it!!!!! She is officially the TACKIEST housewife of all!!! Somebody get her a crown!

    Guys! Guys! Guys! Ok, ok, I am going to pull a Gretchen and don a red trench coat for a bit of attention. Do you guys remember when LGirl walked for Lilly Ghallichi’s swimwear line last month? She had a lot of fun, but didn’t get to meet Lilly. Well, LGirl found out about a Lilly open call, it was the day of…and time was ticking, but she went anyway, on the off chance that she might make it. The call ended at 3pm. She got there at 3:05. The door was locked, the people inside told her “sorry…” She felt sad and embarrased and started to turn away and then whoosh The door swung open and who do you think was standing there asking her to please come in…that’s right!! the one and only LILLY!! Long story short, my girl is walking in Lilly’s show tonight at guess where?? KylebyAlene2 or whateverKyle’s store is called. I’ve been dying to tell you guys!!! I’ve told no one in my real life, because no one in my reallife knows Lilly or Kyle or Shahs… My girl told L.G. That she and I are both big fans of Shahs and of Lilly (she’s from Texas) and she told her in that case, that she would allow LGirl to bring one guest. Wahhhhhh. Wahhhhh! I coulda been there!! Haha! But well, …I am so happy for her and I’m excited to be sharing this with you guys!!! Pray that all goes well, I think the RUNWAY show is going on RIGHT NOW. ok, red trench coat off.

    Sorry couldn’t contain my excitement! 👰👰👰

      On which station do you watch will and grace? I love Gregory Hines episode…5,6,7,8!!!!!!

      • Nancy says:

        For you my dear…

        • chismosa says:

          Is he the one who died under very suspicious circumstances ? Like they never gave a full explanation of COD?

          great on will and grace and great dancer ….

          • Laineylainey says:

            Sadly, he was taken from us at the age of 57. I believe it was the BITCH, cancer, who took him. Liver cancer.

            • chismosa says:

              Oh ok thanks
              Poor guy 😦

              Is liver cancer the same as cirrhosis ? I never know

                • chismosa says:

                  Thanks nancy. I have to read up about this.
                  My uncle seemed to have been a ‘silent’ or ‘secret’ alcoholic when he died — not the cause of death though. We found out after.
                  He was a functioning one.

                  • Nancy says:

                    (((chismosa))) It’s a horrible disease.

                    • chismosa says:

                      Oh thanks nancy this was years ago…..
                      He had some brain issue when he died
                      Dementia ?
                      Not sure.
                      After an autopsy they found this….
                      He was a psycho smoker. Maybe it was lung cancer that metastasized to his brain. I was young.
                      I should find out.

                      We don’t have dementia or Alzheimer’s in the family.

                      Thanks though! You are always sweet

        • Laineylainey says:

          I love this, Nancy! Absolutely love!

          • Nancy says:

            Oh body swayed to music
            Oh brightening glance
            How can we know the dancer from the dance?

            Do you remember that?

            • Laineylainey says:

              I do not. But it’s purdy!!!
              Baryshnikov is the king of ballet, but I would have enjoyed that scene so much more without him..Gregory Hines was the genius of tap and didn’t need Mr. bBallet in that scene. Just as MB has no equal in ballet. Gregory had no equal.

              • Nancy says:

                Actually I agree with you. The entire movie was one off IMHO. It’s interesting though
                to watch how differently they move their upper bodies. Not so much their lower half.

                • Laineylainey says:

                  the musicality in GH’s body…is….whoah…no words. Mb is pure technique, everything…his turns…his leaps…pure…clean, clean, clean…no more words.

      • chismosa says:

        Lifetime in the morning. Mid-morning.

        I have been waiting and waiiiiiiiting for the Manilow episode. I love Sara Gilbert in it.

    • djprincessc says:

      Chismosa, I DIEEEEEE for WIll and Grace!! They just don’t make shows like that anymore!!

      • chismosa says:

        Oh so glad you and Lainey now know it’s on — I think it’s almost daily. Weekdays

        Loved that show

        Didnt like that W & G supposedly had the rift at the end for years and years, but I guess it ended ok. …. Ehh

  38. Nancy says:

    Night, night ladies…hubby is calling.

  39. Laineylainey says:

    Nighty night! Smoochy smoochy!

  40. Laineylainey says:

    That was for Nancy (and George)

  41. TexasTart says:

    Stars – good thing you don’t have a farm! 😆 That was a good read. Thanks bunches for listening through the screaming and the dry sobbing ice skater wanna be.

  42. princesspindy says:

    Starssssss, Most Excellent Way of doing the blogggggg!!!! And I don’t believe that Heather does her own laundry, IPPHO!! 🙂

    I don’t believe it about the Gorga’s house selling for that much, IPPHO. I would love someone who is in real estate in that area to check it out……also if they did sell it for that much it is $700,000 less than they had it listed for in 2010….The Star-Ledger reported in 2010 that the Gorgas had their home on the market in 2010, just before they joined the reality show, for $4.5 million, but pulled the listing after the announcement. Hmmm. You’d think all that high-class “Real Housewives” cachet would boost the value of the home.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Just wanted to say hi PRINCESS! Before going to bed. HI PRINCESS! Hope all is well with the Pindies. Nighty nite!

    • chismosa says:

      I’m not in north jersey but I am in the “tri-state” area and my parents are looking to get on the market soon. So we are investigating ….

      Things are not as high up as one would assume (or sellers’ market as I thought we were now). I was shocked one of my closest friends bought her first house in 2006 for 999,999 and she just put it up for like 989,000 — one of the MOST desired areas in Long Island due to its railroad line and proximity to NYC

      I would think she’d bump up the price much much more and make a profit. I don’t get it???? 7 years later and no PROFIT???
      So…. We’re not out of the woods here in the northeast / tri-state I don’t think.

    Has anyone discussed how absolutely horrible Gretchen’s dress choice was for the reunion!! I mean that was horrendous, the color, the one sleeve, the neck choke out, hair pulled to the side…eeek!!! I thought everyone looked pretty good except her. Loved Lydia’s dress!

  44. Mary Anne Mackay says:

    That dress gives the illusion that Gretchen’s head is separate from her body. It’s weird.
