Real Housewives of Miami – S3E2 – When It Rains, It Pours

When it Rains, it Pours ~ RHOM S. 3, Ep. 2  by  Behindbleueyes

Now that we’re in to episode 2, I feel as though I can justifiably criticize the opening tag lines of the ladies. They are probably the worst I’ve ever heard. “Don’t hate me because I have it all, hate me because I’m beautiful” -I mean really? Is it going to get to the point where everything down the tag lines are scripted? Hmmm probably. On a positive note though, I’m impressed that the ladies are actually on point with their blogs. I woke up this morning and they were all there waiting for me. I secretly wish that their blogs will give me more entertainment than the actual episode did. Actually, that’s not a secret…I’m dead serious. Anywho, on to the episode….

I have to admit I’m loving Joanna and Romain’s relationship progression so far this season. It’s nice to see a guy try to make up for his wrong doings in more ways than one. I also can’t get over his adorable smile. That moment is killed shortly though, as Romain decides to bring up the dreaded Pre nup conversation. Joanna’s immediate reaction -he’s already planning a divorce. To be honest, that’s always been my reaction too. If you’re in it for the long haul, why is money the immediate concern or precaution. Then again when two successful people have worked hard for their money and to make a living it’s of course in their best interest to protect themselves, so I see both sides. It’s adorable to see Romain excited for the wedding. Although what he’s not excited about is any involvement coming from Mirta. At this point, Mirta who? We all know last year she had a lot of things to say when it came to her sister’s relationship and Romain’s possible cheating. Now, Mirta is off living with her race car driving boyfriend and I’m pretty sure isn’t worried about or has any intention of ruining her sister’s wedding. When you’re in a relationship, no longer single, and no longer living with/off your sister…priorities change. Don’t worry Romain, I don’t think she has any plans on taking you down before the walk down the aisle.

It’s hard to watch Marysol talk about Mama Elsa’s condition. It’s also still hard to hear about Frankie’s condition and accident from Alexia. Two very serious situations but it’s a good sign knowing that they’re both fighting to get better and better every day. Sidenote: Alexia’s running outfit was fabulous! Granted I would/could never look like that when running but everything looked perfect. The sunglasses made the outfit. We then get back into bed, and this time with Adriana and Fredrick (Fredrik? Frederic?). Talk about staged and scripted, this “fight” they have been in the middle of, for what they’re trying to play off for “days”, is ridiculous. We established Fredrick’s involvement in calling off the wedding last week, is it really a necessary “filler” for this week? I think not….I mean c’mon, we have Lisa and Daysy for that (yawn). Adriana is concerned about constantly having to be confronted by her so called friends about this entire debacle and is still upset with Fredrick for getting her into this mess. She’s also suspicious that it was Lea who leaked the story about the wedding licence to the press. At this point in the game, I don’t know who to believe. This is Bravo, and there are TWO weddings this season sooooo could be anyone at this point.

Alexia has her personal designer and his assistant over to help her re-design her closet. So much of her time had been with Frankie and his recovery that she’s finding time now that he’s better to do something nice for herself. In the meantime, Adriana is ready to get the ball rolling with her wedding planning and meets with her planner. All wedding planners or any party planner for that matter kisses the ground you walk on because you’re paying them the big bucks. Adriana wants a hot air balloon to deliver her to the altar…at the church. She just killed the whole traditional vibe she had initially headed the conversation with. He tells her anything is possible but luckily stops her when she wants to have it on an island. People aren’t going to want to swim to your ceremony Adriana, even if Bravo is paying them to attend. Thanks to the planner for trying to sound normal but of course you can plan this wedding in 6 weeks…I mean it’s been done before and again, it’s Bravo. It’ll be done. You can bet your bottom dollar.

Lisa and Lenny go visit their new home on Star Island. From the outside you wouldn’t think this house is a tear down, but then you get a glimpse inside. I would understand preservationists’ fight to keep the place intact but unfortunately there is no historical or ‘star’ quality to the home. You would think that the house was in perfect condition given that Lenny paid over $130,000 in attorney fees to get the preservationists off their back and of course the money paid for the foreclosure. The previous owners couldn’t afford to live there anymore and from the looks of it, became squatters in their own home. It was pretty disgusting -I’ll give Lisa that. Also, for such a huge home I’m surprised that kitchen looked like that. Luckily they finally were granted permission to tear it down and rebuild. If only they could airlift their current home and dump it in the spot…because it’s gorgeous. Then again, I guess I’ll never have that kind of money to understand why people spend so much on huge and lavish homes just to move out a couple of years later. Shame on me!

The ladies are divided as the wedding dress/shoe shopping commence. Adriana invites Marysol and Alexia to help her look for the perfect wedding dress as Joanna has Lea and Lisa by her side to pick out shoes. Both groups discuss the impending fight between Lea and Adriana and this whole actually being “married” situation. Adriana seems genuinely hurt by Lea although Lea seems to just want it to run off her back. Joanna brings up to her group the fact that Romain is wanting a pre nup. Shockingly, Lea admits that she never had one. At the time she was making just as much money as her husband and didn’t see why it was necessary. Again, I’m pretty shocked that she doesn’t have one as she considers herself Miami royalty. I did agree with her points though -what’s yours is yours, what’s his is his. Why does it have to be any more difficult than that?

Now, the sit down with Lea and Adriana. We’re only in episode two and I truly hope that after this episode we can stop talking about it. I’ve always believed that the more you have to stress your point, the more guilty you are. If you’re innocent or if it isn’t much of a big deal there’s no point in making a big deal of anything. Adriana stresses that she thinks it was Lea who ‘leaked’ that she was already married to the press since Adriana didn’t defend her against Ana last year. Lea stands by her story in that she’s always been there for her since day one -taking in a single mother and getting her on her feet. The back and forth between the two gets pretty exhausting and even turns to price dropping. Um over $300,000 Lea forked over in tuition to help Adriana’s son stay in school?!?! That’s wayyyy too much money I don’t care who you’re helping out. That’s something I don’t think that Adriana would ever take lightly either. Like I said earlier, this fight can go either way at this point but I hope it’s over before we have to figure it out.

Sidenote: I don’t know about anyone else but I’m pretty bored with the whole “Weddings by Bravo” thing. Is it seriously the only story line you can keep up with? If it’s not a wedding, it’s a baby or a divorce. We really need some new “material” if you will. I beg of you Bravo, I need something else to keep my attention because unless you’re going to personally invite me to these weddings, I’m losing interest.and fast.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to recap next week on time as I’ll be away in Cancun. I will, however be able to get it up before episode 4 airs 🙂 Hope everyone has a great couple of weeks and end to their summer!


Happy Birthday Nohausfrau

    I am enjoying Miami. Not invested in it at all. Just watching for fun.
    Lainey, I read the good news about your daughter on yesterday’s blog. Congrats to her and to you. The pic you posted was lovely; she is beautiful.
    Mel, enjoy those kids. School is starting soon. Does that help? Probably not.

    • cusi77 says:

      Congratulations Lainey!!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hello Dear Lava Lady!! I like Miami, too!! How are you? thanks for your kind words. How’s your gallery girl, by the way? Did you hear? LaineySon will be moving back to TX soon. He was offered a position here in Austin. He will be going back to Brooklyn soon to tie up some loose ends and he’s looking forward to it. He’s going to miss New York. He called us yesterday right after dinner (he’s here in Austin now) and said he was super excited that he’d gotten to edit (from start to finish) some projects with the client. That’s kind of a big step for someone who’s an “assistant editor” and he even brought in a new client. And how’s your son aka James Bond (on the wave runner).? Hope all is well.

      • SoutheastVA says:

        Hi LaineyLainey,
        My niece is starting her freshman year at University of Texas at Austin. She’s from Cedar Hill, TX. We plan on visitingher in Austin sometime this school year. I’ve always wanted to go to Austin. Can you recommend some nice places to stay?

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Good news Lainey! Best of luck to your son and his career.

      • LavaLady says:

        Hi there Lainey. You have a good memory. My Gallery Girl was recently promoted from Gallery Assistant to Assistant to the director. She moved locations from Chelsea to the Upper East Side, but she still lives in Brooklyn. We have a new Texas connection though. Her new boyfriend is from Fort Worth. She visited there this summer.

        James Bond (LavaSon) is moving into his new off campus townhouse today. He will be living with 3 friends. He will be a Junior this year at the Richard Stockton College of NJ. He’s doing great. He worked all summer as a boat detailer, so he is tan and in terrific shape.

        It’s nice to see our young adults making their way in the world. I wish you and yours continued success.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Wow, LL, your babies are doing great. Congrats to LavaGirl for her promotion. And she has a Texas boyfriend, I love it!!! yee haw!!! JamesBond sounds like quite the looker, watch out girls!!!! Thanks for the update!! I love to hear about your birdies.

        • Powell says:

          Hey LavaLady. It’s great to also hear LavaKids are doing so well. I was thinking about your daughter wondering how she was doing in NYCs art world. Good for her. Congrats to LavaKids.

      • Powell says:

        Hey Lainey. LaineySon has a new job back at home. Congrats to him. That’ll be nice for you & Mr. Lainey.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Thanks, Powelly-pooh. The day after he got the offer, his girlfriend broke up with him. ugh. But he seems to be in pretty good spirits.

    • Amalfi says:

      Lainey, I had to go to yesterday’s blog and search through all your posts (dang, you’re prolific, girl) to find out what the congrats were for… so yay!!!! What happy news for your lovely Lainey Girl Model Superhero. xoxo

      Cannot wait to hear all the awesomeness. Perhaps I should keep reading… I have only read the first post of this blog.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Thanks Amalfi!! LOL!!! Prolific, that’s one word for it!! I’m going with PROLIFIC. Thanks!

  2. cusi77 says:

    Thank for the Blog Behindbleueyes! Have a great time in Cancun!

    I like very much how you take everyones point of view. If true that Lea helped out Adiana with 300K thinking she was helping out a single Mom to pay the tuition of her son… that is a bunch of money and I don’t believe for a second that money just went to school tuition. Was she raising Prince William? Or Lea invested all that money buying Art from Adriana’s Art Gallery?

    What Adriana said that she did not feel married because it was not ceremony , I call that BS. If she is so Religious , it is worst to live with the guy without at least being married in front of Society

    Yeah! It is getting tired the story lines of weedings, divorces or new babies.

    Good morning Princesses! (Thanks to Lydia!)

    • VV says:

      Unless her son goes to Gulliver, where tuition is very expensive.

      • cusi77 says:

        Are those amounts yearly or monthly? Take your kid to Public school Adriana! But perhaps she wanted to be around la crème de la crème of Miami… Ridiculous, really…

        • VV says:

          Well, to be honest I don’t know her kid goes to that particular school.
          People that can afford those kind of Tuition, are definitively very affluent people.
          I think…I repeat, I think I read somewhere Christy Rice attended this school.

          • windycitywondering2 says:

            The schools for the “well heeled” are not just a matter of tuition, as parents are required to also pay a lot more money, usually under the genteel name of “fund raising”. These school are private institutions and monies are needed for buildings/infrastructure, the wide variety of courses, extracurricular activities and usually funds for scholarships for those who can’t afford full tuition. The figure Lea threw out is still a lot of money! But she sounded sincere that she really thought she was doing something good for a child of a single mother.

    • VV says:

      I call that BS for the same reason. Not buying her act.

    • Powell says:

      cusi I understand what you’re saying but I do like the new babies. Only B, Tre & Kim have had babies. I am SO tired of the weddings after B, Cynthia & Kim’s. All the other weddings are just them wanting a spinoff. I’d have more respect for them if they’d just admit they want a wedding spinoff. I understand Vicki saying to Gretch that she did the proposal just so it wouldbe on tv. Gretch can cry all she wants but she knows its the truth & so did Tamra, NeNe & Joanna & Adriana. Miami isn’t popular enough for either lady to get a spinoff.
      The divorces don’t bother me either because that is just their lives. They’re not made up except I’m still skeptical of NeNe & Greg’s divorce.

    • chismosa says:

      Cusita all the “devout” Catholics I grew up with over 12 years of catholic school had no problems with premarital sex, living together, gays, nor abortion. Or the millions of other things the 1 and only leader of that faith says is black and white

      It’s SO GREY
      That’s why im so borderline agnostic

      But .. I have my own feelings as I’ve said as my parents both devout Christians (not evangelical! Not fundamental!)- did just city hall and then a church when my mom was pregnant with me
      So I’m torn on Adri

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        Adriana’s scene with the wedding planner left the impression that what she wanted was a ceremony that was over the top, spectacular, unforgettable and would be talked about by many for a long time to come. My husband and I did a city hall marriage. When it was time to have our first born baptized, we had our parish priest bless our marriage – because he wouldn’t baptize our son without the church recognition of our union. I don’t know if Adriana is Catholic, I just think she wants a showy affair. Seriously, after five plus years of her legally being married and saying she doesn’t “feel” married is kind of scary.

        • cusi77 says:

          I so agree with you Windy! Adriana wants the show off! To be the center of attention and admiration. Nothing of hers lead me to believe she is doing it for religious reasons but for vanity and self-centered reasons. (Remember: I can change my mind next Episode… Haha)

          • windycitywondering2 says:

            We all change our minds when new information comes to light! Now she is making her husband take the fall for calling off whatever showy ceremony they were going to have – because I did believe her when she said if was called off because of her son’s feelings – only to find out they all lived together anyway!!! Sorry but a 5 year old has no concept of a legal marriage, a religious ceremony, a plain old over the top showy affair to impress other people or living together!! Why would that little guy care? If he really didn’t like mommy’s boyfriend then mommy shouldn’t have continued to live with the guy!

        • chismosa says:

          Windy sorry just catching up now hadn’t seen this response. So you did what my parents did!

          I still, to this day don’t understand it. My parents I mean. They are a mystery and I’m still unraveling. I hope to do so before it’s too late. They’ll be married 50 years in 2015
          I know I know many dont care for Adri. It’s cool I get it 🙂

  3. TexasTart says:

    Good Morning! I very much look forward to read RHOM recap later….been to busy to keep up with you guys. I copied a bunch of tweets and trying to figure if I can get that done and catch up to you later. Not been able to keep up with the peanut gallery, but caught the tail end of last night…

    Congratulations are in store for LaineyGirl! This is like, Blog Headline News folks!
    A poster who’s daughter is interacting with Bravo personalities, what do you know….get details right here, lol. In the last of the comments, in the most recent post. I’m sure it will be talked about here, but Lainey, I share in your excitement! 😀

    I should post at least some of these Twitters or I wasted time copying them. Apologies if any are repeated from prior blog – and I hope not to break up some chatter about Miami, I’d love to participate in that, but I have to stay on task at work.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi TT – thanks!!! If I didn’t have you guys, no one, literally, NO ONE else would understand how exciting it is that she got to work with Lilly and meet Gretchen. She met Sammy, too!!!! Oh and she didn’t realize it, but she met Michael Costello from Project Runway!!!

      Looking forward to reading the tweets!!

  6. TexasTart says:

    Probably old news by now, but here you go

  7. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It looks like a nice day out today. It’s hump day so don’t work to hard. Have a great day.

  8. TexasTart says:

    Kyle has been tweeting a lot of pics from a family and friends vacation at Lake Tahoe. Looks like they have tons of fun. I chose this pic to send as to note she has a friend that dates back to the 2nd grade. So maybe she’s just not the best of friends while on a TV show 😉

  9. TexasTart says:

    Lisa has been virtually silent on Twitter since the HW to Puerto Rico. I don’t believe the ridiculous ‘unfollow’ drama, I think Brandi was playing cry wolf again. Anyway, you might recognize this gorgeous view from her back yard.

    • chismosa says:

      Got to say, and I’ve been at the Four Seasons and other places in Puerto Rico but I’m shocked that the richest franchise is going to……PR

      WHy not the Maldives? Or the Seychelles? Or Bali? Or Tahiti?

      • TexasTart says:

        I follow your thought process on that one, but I’ll bet it’s a trip hosted by new housewive Joyce Giraud. She is a former Miss Puerto Rico.

        • not THAT Jill says:

          Tartsy-I was thinking the same.

        • chismosa says:

          Oh wow so there’s a hispanic on BH? I may have to start watching now.
          Giraud must be her married name?

          Joyce doesn’t sound Latin either lol!
          Thanks Tarts

    • kit9 says:

      What is the ‘unfollow drama’? I missed that.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Aarg? 🙀

  10. TexasTart says:

    Recently Yolanda was in NYC saying bye bye to Gigi who is starting college there. Interestingly, to study criminal psychology! Now Yo is on a trip to various locations in Canada.

  11. TexasTart says:

    Not sure if this is computer graphics or real, but I LOL’d at this. She photographed David in a Smart car recently, so maybe the car people sent this concept car pic to her…very cleaver – for free advertising is my guess.

    • TexasTart says:

      Sorry, here is the pic to match the above comment.

      • melthehound says:

        Again with the lemons, painted on a deathtrap..

        • Powell says:

          The lemon decals is cute but MTH I’m w/you. I’d never drive/ride in one of those small cars. I see them often & on our beltway/highway w/people driving 50, 60, 70 mph & those drivers cutting in & out of traffic in those cars. A good ole fashioned wind could blow them down.

          • melthehound says:

            They are about the size of a truck tire.. Maybe a little bigger. Have you ever seen a truck tire blow it’s tread? Destroys whatever it hits. With the exception of being surrounded by airbags and having a windshield, might as well ride a motorcycle (which is a lot more fun)..

      • chismosa says:

        I rented that in santorini 11 years ago. It was a combo automatic/ stick so we had a craaaaaazy time figuring it out. Lol!!!

        No lemonis for us though …..
        It barely fit our luggage !

    • Nancy says:

      We went there on our honeymoon. 🙂 So many great memories.

      • TexasTart says:

        Very nice, it’s so beautiful in Canada. I only know from photos, but my husband has spent time there. By matter of comments attached to Yolanda’s pics, I think that location is Victoria, British Columbia. Is that correct? It this the actual place you stayed, or the location is the same?

  12. Powell says:

    Lainey I’m so happy for LaineyGirl!!! Your girl works her patootie off. Good for her. It was very kind and professional of Lily to let her audition. LG is 3 degrees of separation from BH. She meets Lily who has her fashion show at Kyle’s, and Kyle is on BH. Something like that. But Congrats. I hope Lily continues to use her. 🙂

    • Laineylainey says:

      Powelly, she knew that I and my Lynn friends (as she calls us) would be excited with her. Thanks!!

  13. Rebecca says:

    Great recap Behindbleueyes!

    There are too many people that say on camera that Lea lies, and even Lisa sees it. I think she is one of those people who to make herself look good, need to exagegrate EVERYTHING. I hate this and I’m with Donald Trump on this – it’s lying. She was never as successful as her husband, I call BS on the no prenup, and there’s no way in hell she paid $300,000 in tuition to send somebody else’s kid through prep school. I can see her buying painting worth that much, but as someone on this blog said earlier (because they have intelligence) art is an investment that appreciates. Lea was not given any “bargain” deals.

    Now, because Lea is either deliberately being untruthful to protect her son, or if she is delusional enough to think she is not really married, we have the housewives formula of “who repulses us less” in order to take sides in the mess. Why is the hell can’t we have some normal, fabulous women who do more than bicker and backstab?

    • Rebecca says:

      Sorry – strike that last paragraph…..

      Now, because ADRIANA is either deliberately being untruthful to protect her son, or if she is delusional enough to think she is not really married, we have the housewives formula of “who repulses us less” in order to take sides in the mess. Why is the hell can’t we have some normal, fabulous women who do more than bicker and backstab?

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I have an easy fix for this…don’t take sides. wHY? Because no one is spotless, ever. We will be let down by a person eventually, because they are only human AND WORSE they are being edited a certain way,…or in their effort to NOT be edited negatively these people can sometimes overcompensate and come off as borderline insane/desperate. The ones who aren’t as affected (more confident) somehow production still manages to paint THAT negatively,…as non caring or arrogant, etc., etc. No matter what they do/don’t do, they can’t come off as stellar for too long.

      • Powell says:

        I like Lea but she was not as successful as Roy when she met him. He’s a smart lawyer & if he didn’t get a prenup then that’s on him & his decision if its true. To me Lea exaggerated about the tuition. I believe w/jewelry & art she’s purchased from Adriana & money she gave Adriana for living expenses & tuition, maybe its been about $300k. I do believe that Lea was helping Adriana before Adriana met Fred & if Lea wasn’t the bridesmaid & knew Adriana was married Lea continued to financially support Adriana when she got married. Now if the later is true Lea has every right to be mad thinking she was helping a struggling single mom.

        • chismosa says:

          I don’t think she kept supporting her once A was with Fred. Jmho
          A said that among Lea nonstop back pedaling and over talking, legal-wise. Adri couldn’t take hearing lea saying all that $hit anymore so she was quiet.
          When someone just keeps it going, and they’re not seeing the point or the logic- you just let the cra-cra fly.

    • chismosa says:

      Hi Rebecca👋👋👋

      Yes I was one of the people who said that art is an investment and APPRECIATES
      Very nice touch of Lea to say that was saving Adri’s life. Hmmm, giving her food and a place to sleep– sounds vaguely reminiscent of another loser HW on the east coast!! Lol

      What did you mean by like Donald trump? Sorry i didn’t get that

      Lainey🔼🔼🔼you have a nice optimistic way of looking at this but it’s too hard to not get exasperated at someone like Lea
      She’ll be gone off the show once she sees how her true colors are showing and she has no more puppets. All to save face for her gala

    Happy Birthday Nohausfrau 😀

    Happy Birthday, Nohausfrau! 🎉🎁🎊🎂

  16. HuskerHuny says:

    As for tag lines, a beautiful person nevers says he’s/she’s beautiful.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Not just for taglines. A beautiful person should shut the hell up about being beautiful. Also, a genius should never say “I’m a genius.” Their mothers can say it, but after they’ve graduated college (like I did) hahahahaha!! “Perfect” Lainey!!

    • Rebecca says:

      Because the reply for that is “but ugly on the inside.”

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      It feels like no one spent any time coming up with witty taglines for this franchise.

  17. Lulu says:

    Hello everyone! Another busy day! Errands the joys of lugging around a toddler and baby carrier store to store! 😦 This morning I asked the “governor” to wake up his daddy. A few seconds later I hear “oww!!! what was that for!!!” The governor slapped DH across the face while screaming “Wake up!!!” ROFL!!!! Still ROFL!!!! DH didn’t find it soo funny!

    Anyone watching “Ray Donovan?” What do you think?

  18. Lulu says:

    Congrats LAINEYLAINEY!!!!! That is awesome for LaineyGirl!!! sigh to be that young and have that much excitement!!!

  19. HuskerHuny says:

    Did anyone catch Who Do You Think You Are last night? What an amazing story for Chris O’Donnell and his family. Goes to show you that real life is so much better than reality life.

    Laineylainey… CONGRATS to you and yours … you must just be overjoyed with all your daughters accomplishments….. I wish her continued success for sure….would be nice to see her on Shahs…
    MTH… keep on rocking UNCLE UNCLE…

    Never did make it to all my errands yesterday… besides the rain , I am having a sciatica attack on my left side…foot so swollen can’t even get my foot into my sparkly flip flops… so stayed home and did NOTHING… foot still swollen today…going to try and squeeze a shoe on…PAYDAY… we shall see later…
    this whole Adrianna story has taken on a whole new level..her and Lea are so full of chitz…
    Lea only kicked in ( allegedly ) 15K towards the kids back tuition… she said she had OTHERS help with it…not buying it… NO WAY would a private school allow that tuition to get that far behind..more made up crap…
    ALSO… Adrianna can sing till the cows come home in a pink Cadillac about how she DIDNT feel married because they didn’t have a RELIGIOUS CEREMONY… this marriage wont be recognized by the Church until she has her first marriage to ROBERTO SIDI annulled..and that will never happen…. she got divorced in Plano,TX and I’m betting she knew LEA from there…I remember posting the docs back last year when all this came up…and she was NOT married to Roberto when she told the gals she found him cheating and living in another Country with some young girl..It was his WIFE and they have a couple of kids together…. Adrianna must really think the viewers are really stupid and we will fall for her line of BS…just like Lea stating she doesn’t have a pre nup… um.sure.lea…… lea (lisa) haller never had $$$$ like Roy Black did/does…. she’s another gold digger ( allegedly ) and she knew if she blinked enough at Roy during the trial she could snag him…. dinner in Palm Beach after the trial was over and the games started….talk of the town back then……..
    like I said…BRAVO… mindless entertainment for the masses…..
    THE BRIDGE tonite…yea….
    INK MASTER sucked last night…not liking the crew they have this season..last year was far better…
    off to read some emails…bbl ???

    hugs and peace

    how cool was the moon last night !!!!!!!!

    • baronessbeachcomber says:

      Diva. The moon looked regular to me last night – maybe a little brighter, but not blue. 😦

      • melthehound says:

        Here at dusk it was a little on the pinkish side. A little bigger than normal. I didn’t bother with pictures because in pics, it always looks the same unless I catch the actual moonrise down by the river.

    • TexasTart says:

      Most interesting info on Adriana, thank you Diva!

      Had the most amazing sunset here with funky clouds and colors and I watched for some time and then turned around to walk back in the house and over head was a big ole’ gorgeous full moon going on! The sky was workin it on both ends 😉
      Please send your rain to Texas.

    • Powell says:

      Diva I hope the swelling goes down. Doesn’t sound comfortable at all.

      Diva I’m convinced Adriana’s marriage lies were all in hopes of a wedding spinoff. Miami isn’t popular enough for that but she got her Bravo paid for wedding& all eyes on her.

      I’ll be watching The Bridge. It gets better each epi.

      I hope Mr. Ford is doing well.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Thank you, sweet Diva!!!

    • Laineylainey says:

      Thank you for reminding us of all that Adriana stuff!!!! She does try to color us dumb. Sorry Adri, we’ve got the Diva to knock some sense back into us!

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Nothing prettier than a blue moon, except maybe the harvest moon!
      It is time for you to find the lost folder on Adriana that surfaced right before the boycotted first season started. IIRC, she had an interesting past in Texas that brought her to Miami. And once in Miami, she did a few very interesting things with real estate. She was by far the most mysterious and interesting HW of the first season.

    LL!!!!! *hugs LL really hard* *hugs LL’s daughter really hard* I know it sounds silly, but I am sooo proud of both of you!!!!! – Lainey you must be so proud of your little girl all grown up!!! congrats to you both! – I wish your beautiful daughter nothing but success – something tells me she will have no trouble at all acheiving it!

    Jeff???? – did you survive the night?? did the kids??? – Is Mel still talking to you??
    they are very lucky to have you – just as we all are!!

    *hugs entire board really hard*

    • melthehound says:

      Oh he is talking alright and they are still here. That’s the bad part of overnights. 24h plus

      • Nancy says:

        You should play the game called…Who can be quiet the longest? LOL
        I use to do that with my 2 nieces but they winner made me give her $20.
        It was money well spent. 🙂

        • melthehound says:

          It doesn’t work with these two, Nancy. I’ve offered to pay them just to STFU (that’s in my mind, not to them) and even then, no go. They have to fight about who will be quiet the longest and therefore who gets the bigger cut of the cash. Even when I tell them they would get an equal amount… It’s mostly her that complains the most… She’s a 7yo chasing her 10yo brother around. Somehow, I feel the need to apologize to my parents 😉

          • Nancy says:

            How much longer are you on babysitting duties?

          • Rebecca says:

            It’s time for the score system. Write their names on paper. When they do something bad they get a check mark. When they want something, you get to say NO and erase a check mark. It pits them against each otehr and you, but they HAVE to behave to get anywhere.

            • melthehound says:

              They’re just kids being kids, I am sure… I pit them against each other when I have them clean up the back yard (The Hound’s yard 😉 )… Nothing funnier than watching them argue about who picks up what land mine 😆 (yes … they do get paid for the job).

              • Orson says:

                I think you should get a heavy bag and some gloves and teach your niece how to really punch. That should stop her brother from teasing her.

                • melthehound says:

                  She gives as good as she gets, Orson. Even better sometimes. She has perfected the dry cry and helpless bit but if you just let her go, she’s like a monkey who is strong as a horse. She ain’t fooling me,..

      • Powell says:

        So MTH where are you & Mel going on vaca after the kids go home? 😉

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Thanks, Shamrocky!! “hugs you back!!!*

  22. TexasTart says:

    Lainey, you are going to get me in trouble for being on the blog – it’s all your fault! 😛
    I have Twitter activity on the runway show that LaineyGirl worked last night and I found her personal Twitter by accident, but I will not post anything attached to her personally. Most of the pics show Lily and Kyle’s store. You might want to look at comments attached to the pic that has Gretchen. Best of all Lily posted one with the models and LaineyGirl is in that group!

  23. TexasTart says:

  24. TexasTart says:

    Models on topic today… LaineyGirl needs a web site like Yolanda’s daughter.

  25. TexasTart says:

    And another modeling related tweet…

    • Laineylainey says:

      That’s cool! That would be a huge dream of my daughters to walk during Fashion WeekIn L.A. Or NY. ESP NYC!

      • chismosa says:

        Fashion week Miami is the big swimwear one Lainey. Has your daughter already done that—- since she’s done Lily?

  26. TexasTart says:

    Behindbleueyes, thank you for the recap, I couldn’t agree more on they have the worst tag lines, but HoAnn takes the cake. I don’t “hate” anyone, but if Joanna Krupa suggests that “Don’t hate me for having it all, but hate me for being beautiful”, I’ll take a pass and “hate” her for her personality. Blech. Marta is actually fortunate to have moved on and not be around her sister, the two of them are toxic together! I think we are all bored with weddings by Bravo! I don’t know, but at least it would be more exciting if there were some fresh young people that were madly in love….but so much we get is not ‘fresh’. Look, Romain and Joanna, where is the chemistry. They have never struck me as being in love. I do think she loves her new Jaguar though. 😉

    I think this season is going to be enjoyed by those that aren’t trying to take a side with the allegedly fake fights and not take these women seriously at all!!! On the surface, there is a lot of eye candy in RHOM on an episode-to-episode basis, there is more than Beverly Hills, for my taste at least. The scenery, the locations, the fashion – oh and aren’t those shots of Adriana dressed to the nines with driving gloves in a Rolls, crusing down the highways of Miami in a Rolls to die for?!

    • Nancy says:

      Adriana is getting slammed over on the Bravo blog and Lea is getting a lot of support.

      • chismosa says:

        That’s lawyers. That’s who got Ana off the show.

        Blech. Cookies coming up…..

        • TexasTart says:

          I turned off cookies.

        • Powell says:

          Chismosa I was thinking about that. I think it was “get Ana off or were suing”.

          • chismosa says:


            You cross Lea, you get punished ….

          • Laineylainey says:

            You think she’s that powerful? er…would the Blacks have a case against Bravo? And if so what kind of underhanded crap did Bravo do if what you think is true that they were so scared of being sued that they would demote a castmember just ’cause Lea says.

            • chismosa says:

              Why was essentially EVERYTHING in the folders 📁📂📂NOT shown on camera??

              Lea falling all over herself with the vapors over basically nothing ? Andy saying to Adriana “wow Adriana now hearing all this!?! What do you think!!” Hearing WHAT!!!????

              Bravo took it out!!!

              Something went down ……..

              They did a good editing job, compared to what we’re seeing day in and day out in NJ but it was obvious

              I want FOLDERS 📁📁

            • windycitywondering2 says:

              Bravo would have a case if they told Ana what she could not do or talk about during filming, as it would be nothing more than an employer reviewing of an employee and what the employee needed to do better at blah, blah, blah, but maybe short of a discipline type warning.
              IMHO, Ana must have done something she shouldn’t have done during the beginning of this season’s filming – as it got her busted down to friend of status. So, third strike and she is gone. That is the legal way to do it.
              Whether or not the Blacks threatened any legal action probably would be civil (slander, defamation of character) as they are not Ana’s employer but if her actions/words could hurt the Blacks and/or their charities they would have every right to do so. As my mama used to say, “Don’t cash checks your mouth can’t cover.”!

              • chismosa says:

                Interesting ….
                Yeah Ana claims we will find out early on this season why shes gone. I should do any sort of investigating on twitter I can do while not having an account or maybe creating a “fake” one like to do when conducting Facebook investigations

                Hmmmmmmm 📰🔬📜📁📑💶🚽🔫🚬

  27. AZGirl says:

    Good afternoon. Happy Birthday NoHausfrau. Congratulations to Lainey Girl on her job. Well done.
    @Jeff/MTH: I suggest you get your fraternity paddle out and show it to the hoodlums 🙂

  28. Orson says:

    Great recap, behind blue eyes. Thanks.
    I do want to comment on something you said, though:
    “I did agree with her points though -what’s yours is yours, what’s his is his. Why does it have to be any more difficult than that?”
    I agree with you, but how is it more difficult to just put that on paper and sign it?

    • chismosa says:

      I agree— that’s a prenup no???

      So Lea got to keep her cold cream profits if she signed one.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      I never understood how a pre nup means you are thinking of divorce unless the person is going into the marriage with that mindset – that is sad. If both parties have assets that need protection it just makes sense to have one. Just like having a will makes sense.

  29. TexasTart says:

    MTH, I missed a lot of conversation here, but did manage to catch some of the latest antics of your charge and the instructions that we are to call 911 if we don’t hear from you. The theory they would use your hide as a coat made me wonder how the heck we are to identify you without tatoos?! MOST AMUSING! You totally had me in stitches! 😆

    • melthehound says:

      I don’t know, TexasT… No tats so you’ll have to look for the stretch marks I guess 😉

  30. not THAT Jill says:

    Lainey-super excited about the beautiful LGirl and her recent runway work-I just followed her on twitter so I can stay up dated with her continued success(even though I know you are OWK and would tell us what she is up to). I hope great opportunities keep coming her way!! It’s a wonderful thing to see someone’s dreams become a reality!!! Go LGirl go!!!!!

    • vilzvet says:

      Congratulations to your daughter!!

    • looneylucy says:

      I’ll add on a congrats. to LaineyGirl for her latest gig! I know you all were over-the-moon excited for her, And I’m happy LaineySon has found a great job close to home. It was fantastic he was able to experience the NY life, but as a mom I know you’re glad he’s going to be closer to home. Nothing but happy, happy, happy for the Lainey fambly!

      • Laineylainey says:

        Thank you so much Jill, vilzvet, and Looney!!! This is a fun time. I’m happy to share it with my buddies here.

  31. vilzvet says:

    Hello all, just popping in from this beautiful place, Venice Beach CA, to say hello and that I will try mightily to blog Million Dollar Listing LA tonight. I did bring my laptop! It’s great that I can see Malibu Canyon from here. I don’t ever want to go home! Walked from Santa Monica back on the boardwalk to Venice after breakfast. Lots of action here and interesting characters. The weather is spectacular,

  32. chismosa says:

    Behind Bleu Eyes thanks for recapping !

    Just a suggestion — when I say “I’m dead serious”
    with my friends we always add ” ….and dead SEXY”
    Lol!!!!!!! 😹😹😹😹

    Great recap

    I’m in front of a salon/spa called:

    TRE Salon and Spa
    They should sell Tre’s shirts and her hair products ! Lol

  33. TexasTart says:

    LOL! I would agree that TRE salon should cash in on that, but I’m laughing about adding dead sexy.

    • chismosa says:

      I think we got that from an Austin powers movie.
      We just still use it. Lol

      • TexasTart says:

        Sounds good, chismosa, I think I will adopt saying that even though my peeps probably won’t know where it came from, lol.

        • chismosa says:

          I don’t remember either, I have to google it.
          Something makes me think Mike Myers. We were also big So I Married an Ax Murderer fans

  34. Powell says:

    I really don’t know if Lea had anything to do w/Adriana’s marriage license being published in the Miami Herald because that’s what media outlets and some bloggers do in this world of reality tv. It really doesn’t take a person that someone knows to blow the lid off of their pretend lived.

    • TexasTart says:

      Right, like we can get access to marriage records and turned that info over to media, but what might peek our curiousity that she already could be married…that really wouldn’t have occurred to me, but people close to her would know.

      • cusi77 says:

        Powelcita_ I sooo agree with you!

        Do you think Lea did know Adriana was legally married? First Season they were very closed friends and I recall how supportive they were of each other…

        Were they acting? Lea was very convincing saying that Adriana was a single mom…

        That scene where Adriana and her French hubby were on the boat shouting to each other was soooooooooooooooooooo fake! Bad actors! I am with Lea “today”, next week… who knows? Haha!

  35. Laineylainey says:

    Chismosa, got home, turned on the TV, started dinner…I had 4 w&g shows taped. I was literally guffawing…thanks for mentioning it last night. Right now I am watching the one where James Earl Jones is taking Jack’s acting class. Jack: “what’s with the voice, you sound like a lesbian”.

    • not THAT Jill says:

      Oh I love the JEJ episode…I don’t know if there is an episode that I don’t love!!!! My brother and I used to talk using only quotes from Jack! People thought we were nuts until we said a line that was familiar-then they caught on and joined in!!!

    • chismosa says:

      OMG LOLLLLlllll

      Jack! I can’t believe he said that to him!

      JUST jack can say that. Tomorrow is the Fanilow episode I can’t wait for

  36. KTinCT says:

    Happy Birthday, Nohausfrau!
    Congratulations LaineyLainey and family, so happy for you 🙂

    Anyone interested The Soup 🍵🍜 is LIVE tonight for its 500th episode

    Long live Joel!!! 💏💏

    • princesspindy says:

      Tonight on Jeopardy (you know where you can find me at 7:30pm every night!) anyway, the answer was “The Soup” and I of course got it but it was Teen Week(s) and none of them got it and Alex Trebek said, “I’ve never seen it either”…….wonder if it will end up on The Soup, LOL!!!

    Don’t *hate me* for bringing this over from Radar 🙂

    What a weird story!

    (Allegedly) Brooks hired a hitman to go after Vicki’s bizness partner – the Vicki’s Vodka deal guy OR the Vicki’s Vodka deal guy made this all up to ruin Brooks.

    “Most shockingly, according to the complaint, they alleged that Ayers was a “dangerous guy who has threatened Plaintiff (Williamson) and his wife’s life” and that he “hired a hit man to kill plaintiff.”

    According to the suit, they also claimed Ayers got the paralegal from his divorce attorney in Mississippi pregnant causing her to lose her job, he conspired with another person to extort money from Williamson and that Ayers had “many” sexual diseases. Ayers denied all the allegations.

    Gunvalson, 51, believed the claims at first, it’s claimed, even sending her lover a message telling him to “lose [her] number.”

    But she soon suspected the accusations were unsubstantiated and the pair got back together, Ayers said in his suit.

    Now, as a result of the brouhaha, Ayers is suing for damages, claiming that he “was publicly vilified and humiliated and has suffered substantial damages in the form of pain, suffering, anguish and lost business opportunities” because of the alleged wild accusations.

    In fact, text messages included in the court paperwork appear to show that another woman, Angela Torres, confided in Ayers she was afraid for her own life just days after Williamson allegedly told Gunvalson that Ayers was “a dangerous guy’!

    “OMG what is going on Brooks! We need to talk PLEASE,” Torres supposedly texted Ayers on March 31. “Sorry I’m just really scared for my life.”
    On April 1, according to the lawsuit, she wrote: “I called him on his own bluff!!! He’s not going to contact me. He’s nothing but a liar! Just like he proposed to me and promised he would leave Cate by March!”

    On April 9, the messages show that Ayers allegedly called Torres’ attention back to the alleged lies Williamson had told Gunvalson.

    “The BIG deal is that Robert has implicated me/you in a plan to extort/blackmail and/or have him killed,” he wrote, according to a text message filed with the lawsuit. “Pretty serious and I’m not taking it lightly.”

    Torres allegedly answered, “Well it’s obvious that its not true … I guess I’m just confused on everything. Sorry.”
    According to the suit, Ayers replied: “Well, he provided a supposed text from your phone that came from me. We’ll find out the facts. … So you’re telling me that you never insinuated to Robert that I was contacting you via text that I was encouraging you to extort money from him or we’d have him killed?”

    “No,” she answered, it’s claimed. “I told Rob that I felt like he was going to hurt ME!”

    Williamson is already suing Ayers, claiming he committed fraud, breached contract, failed to live up to good faith dealings, misrepresented himself and conspired with Gunvalson to unjustly enrich themselves while working with him to launch her vodka, Vicki’s Vodka.

    He is also planning to refile his own lawsuit against the reality star herself, after settlement talks collapsed.

    • Orson says:

      This could mean everybody was right and Vicki was wrong. She’s going to have hell of a time getting her mind around that concept.

    • chismosa says:

      I’ll only hate you because “you’re beautiful”
      —–Ho Ana

    • melthehound says:

      Not going to hate you Mene Seela.. In fact, I thank you because, I don’t like to go to the rag sites. Between here and the FB group, I get all the dirt I can stand 😉

  40. windycitywondering2 says:

    Lainey, Lainey – got to say your daughter is beautiful but I also got to say – she has a very remarkable mother because that is not the only thing you gave her!
    Jeff, enjoy your little charges – you will miss them when they are gone, maybe not a lot but you will miss them.
    Dawn, thank you again for another great recap – you got mad style and make an enjoyable read out of what is usually a hot mess in a beautiful city.

    Now I have to finish getting the oldest packed and loaded into the car – tomorrow he goes back to college, and I miss him already!

  41. chismosa says:

    I missed MDL LA — and man Bravo doesn’t rerun it as much as the NY show. Maybe NY is more successful ???

    Can anyone (today or tomorrow, I realize it’s late) give me the quick rundown on this Marisa Zanuck? Was she a “friend of” BH? Hoped to get fully casted? She seems to have a sour/bit*h face on a lot.
    Just wanted to know the background. Is she in the same RE firm as Mauricio is or was? So – friends with Kyle?

    And why does Kyle’s store have the name Aline in it??? Is her store a …..
    clutching my pearls 💍💍💍…. A franchise?

    Muchas nachos !

    • nyc mama says:

      Hi Chismosa, seems that Marisa is now wanting to be a regular on MDLLA and saying she hated being on RHBH.
      Marisa Zanuck ‏@marisazanuck 18m
      @xxxxxx yes!! Much more myself on this show. RHOBH wasn’t for ME!!!!!!

      @xxxxx @marisazanuck @BravoAndy I agree. She seems more at home on #MDLLA than on #RHOBH

      Marisa Zanuck ‏@marisazanuck 14m
      @xxxxyes!! I’m not a mean GIRL!! Lol!!

      She is tweeting for people to let Bravo know they want to see her.

      Go to her twitter and see.
      @xxxxx yes!!! Thank you! Want to b on full time!! Keep tweeting!! They listen!!!
      She also retweeted that she is no longer friendly with Kyle.

      xxxx‏@xxxx 20 Aug
      @thebravoholic @thejoshaltman @marisazanuck @MauricioUmansky I believe that she is no longer friendly with Kyle
      Retweeted by Marisa Zanuck

      Can’t keep up with her, she changes like the wind. It wasn’t long ago she wanted to come back to RH.
      She works out of Hilton Hyland, same firm as Altman and Maurcio’s former one.

      Kyle’s store is the BH outlet of Aline’s, started in Florida with either 2 or 3 stores there so she is partners with Aline. who started the original ones.but she only has an interest in the BH store, not the others.

      I am slowly back to watching Bravo, starting slow with MDLLA but can’t yet bring myself back to the HW franchises.

      • chismosa says:

        Thanks NYC Mama…..

        Interesting. So maybe she was friends with Kyle from years back

        And thanks for the info on Aline/Alene

        Hope to see you back at least when New York is back — for your name – and to enjoy George !
        Thanks again

  42. chismosa says:

    anyone up– they’re repeating season 1 NY on bravo.

    Is that Bethenny’s father who walked her down the aisle ?

    Wow everyone looks different and I love the baroque music they put on for Alex and Simon lol!

    • Orson says:

      Bethenny’s father died early in her pregnancy just after she got engaged. This was the time Bethenny had finally cut JZ out of her life and JZ was trying to get back in B’s life. “I wasn’t serious! I was doing it for the story line! Ask Bawby!”

  43. ladebra says:

    I am sooo late to the party! Congratulations LL on LaineyGirl’s runway success. She is so tall and lithesome, really stunning.
