Real Housewives of New Jersey – S5E13 – Are we Really still watching this?

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-5-cast-and-info-rev_1ClosetFreak from last week….

Yes folks, here we are again. Apparently the halfway point which means there are 12 or 13 episodes of Crapfest 2013 remaining. I think Bravo could take a lesson from our UK or Canadian friends and keep these shows to 8-12 weeks and without the reunions. Willy Wonky is really wearing on my last nerve with some of this shit. There was no name calling (much) or fighting tonight so those of you who are tired of seeing that, got what you may have hoped for. The rest of us however, were left flat, searching for something to latch on to. Once again, the show was divided in to 4 separate parts and we’ll take each on it’s own.

First, we are in a cooking class at some place with Teresa. I guess she is doing a demo class recipe from one of her cookbooks. They wrestled 15 or 20 people off of the street to watch this thing so there would be something to film this week. Among the class members is one man. While Teresa is throwing the ingrediences in the pan, in walks Kathy. Why? I don’t know. I guess she’s there for support. I don’t know what it was Teresa was cooking but she finishes it and serves it up, serving the man first (since he’s the only one in the room).. As the folks are dining and picking off what they don’t want to eat from the food, Teresa and Kathy talk about the launch party. She tells Kathy that Jan and Penny were there. Jan has a lot of nerve showing her face. Hold the phone there Kathy… The Gorgas got a taste of their own medicine from MeGo’s BFFL and they don’t like it. Boohoo. As for Penny, she deserves a smackdown for talking shit about a married woman with kids. Again, they got a taste of their own medicine, regardless of who put Jan and Penny up to it. Suck it up buttercup. If we are to believe the edit, that entire scene was about Teresa convincing her brother that she’s had nothing to do with these rumors. It doesn’t matter at all, but I happen to believe her.

Next set of scenes, we get to watch these people pack for this Arizona retreat trip that lil’ Joey has planned for his wife’s birthday. A trip, by the way, that she would rather take alone without any of the others. This is great TV right here. People packing their suitcases. Just what I tune in every Sunday night to watch. A bunch of morons being filmed in their closets and I Mean All Of Them. Teresa is displaying her bathing suits, Jac can’t wear anything because she’s just been sliced apart but she wants to make sure she takes the right heels in case she goes hiking in the desert, MeGo is all sourpussed about having to share her birthday with the others, Big Al is trying to convince us that he loves his wife, and Richie is just being himself (Unfortunately). Somehow they all figure out what Jersey Coture to bring and they are off to the airport, minus, Teresa’s bedazzled swimsuit that Gia wouldn’t let her bring because it will be up her butt if she wears it and her chuckolina will be all sparkly. I’ll let you rattle that one around in your heads for a moment.

We get to the airport and we see the Gorgas, Wakilies, and Guidices on their airplane (getting loaded) but the Manzo/Lurkita plane is broken so they have to wait for another one and will be several hours behind the others. Why Joey couldn’t have booked them all on the same flight is beyond me… Oh, Wait, this isn’t really a Joey trip, it’s a Bravo trip. For all the good they add to these trips, they should have just chartered a party bus to Atlantic City and skipped Arizona. We hear a kid or a baby screaming in the airport and Jac slithering on the ground (the edit is making Jac to be a huge crybaby)… Eventually though, everyone ends up in the same place but I think there is some luggage missing. Captioned, Rich, while on the plane, wanted to know if Arizona was the state where you can have 6 wives. Someone answered that was Utah. You’re both idiots. Polygamy is illegal in All states and even the Mormon church doesn’t prescribe to it anymore (ridiculous reality shows aside).

In due time everyone ends up at the resort. I wish someone had shoved Richie into a giant cactus and left him there since no one threw him off of the plane. Dammit. He is complaining about the accommodations that he didn’t pay for and Jersey has hit the desert, much to the dismay of everyone else there. I think Gov Christy (sp) and Bravo owe these people a comp trip as an apology. The governor for letting these asshats out of the state, and Bravo for bringing them to Arizona. I say just spray them all with Raid and do the entire country a favor. These people make Honey Boo Boo look like quality television. MeGo, has taken ill. Her throat hurts. She’s never been in so much pain, even though, she’s had 3 kids. I get that some pain may be worse than that but since I’ve never experienced either, I just have to laugh at it. Apparently, there has been a trip to the clinic or the hospital because she is sporting a hospital ID bracelet and 4 or 5 bottles of horse pills. She has trouble swallowing them. Don’t worry MeGo, I’m sure you can manage, even though they are bigger than Tarzan. Something that she was also offered by Joey. See, He doesn’t care if she’s sick, he’ll gladly take whatever disease she has while she surfs the internet (see last week’s recap if you don’t get that). Big Al is doing something on his phone while Momz is unpacking. She says that he’s always working and never lets himself relax. Well Momz, maybe if you popped those nipples from the manzoid mouths, he could relax a little bit and take some time. As it is, having all these businesses to support along with whatever he keeps at the Brownstone, he can’t afford to slow down. I’m surprised the queen of advice can’t see that.

There are two ‘therapy’ sessions we have to endure in this episode. The first one is a visit to the group by a medium. That’s a person that brings messages from the dead but not gone. Got that? This is actually something I happen to believe in because I’ve known the real thing. I don’t know if this woman was it though. Most of what she brought up is either public knowledge or can be gleaned from watching the show. The rumors of MeGo cheating and the connection to Teresa for instance. Grocery store checkout aisle and the entire last season of the show. It’s on the cover of the magazines. She also mentions someone with the letter J… You know, Joe. There are two sitting right in front of her so what are the odds that one of them may be named after an older, possibly deceased, family member.?. In a Catholic Italian family? Except for one thing.. While they may go by Joe, their names are Guisepe (sp), beginning with a G. These fortune tellers work the same way. They just start spitting out questions and see what hits with their mark (sucker). Do I have to say, Electric Cigarette? We will play along though.

The medium told Rich his dad wants him to watch the wedding video he hasn’t been able to watch (I assume) since his dad died 12 years prior because dad was in the video. Quit your sobbing, I would kill to have footage of my father. It doesn’t exist though because he was always the one behind the camera, never in front of it. Kathy hears that her dad heard her. We’ll find out later what that all means. He also thinks that all this feuding is crap and they just need to get the fuck over it. This group is half full of skeptics. MeGo is forever convinced that everything bad that has happened to her is Teresa’s fault. Her hand is so far up Joey’s ass that he believes it too. Funny thing is, MeGo doesn’t mind some rumors being perpetuated. Like the one she perpetuates that she can sing and will some day be a pop star closing a flea market near you. Any new shitty iTunes songs, MeGo? While reading the chat blog, I really didn’t want to watch the show because I didn’t want to see her martyr’d poor me innocent face. I really cannot stand that woman. I will say this though. She is exactly what the angel from God, deserves. Her, and her two sisters, the Marco clan, the three little pigs.

Now, afterward, Teresa, Kathy, and Rosie are talking about their dad. Seems that Kathy was the perfect do everything right daughter and Rosie was the rebel. Yet, Rosie got all the love from the dad while Kathy was always having to prove herself. Remember last season, Teresa told Rosie that Kathy never accepted the way Rosie was. I tend to think that is true whether Teresa was right in saying it or not. I think that scene with the Wakilie kids learning their aunt was a lesbian was at the top of the bullshit pile. I bring that up because I believe that somehow in Kathy’s mind, Rosie was flawed, and she was not, and she’s disappointed that her father didn’t see it the same way. In her own twisted mind that is.

MeGo is too sick to participate in any activity that involves being physical… Like walking. That’s exactly what this next therapy session involves. A hike to the next site. Not to worry though, she’s not feeling so bad she can’t ham it up for the cameras slathering sun tan oil all over herself and lying on a rock trying to look sexy. I won’t thrash her too much though. It Was her birthday and she should be able to spend it how she wants. I do have to take my digs though πŸ˜‰ . The rest of the group goes on this hike and the Arab (Richie) wants to know if this is the desert. It is. I guess there isn’t too much parched earth there in New Jersey so I guess we can give him a pass. I was correct last week when I said the Lurkita had to get his plug in for Miracle Murk. In fact, they all got their plugs in for their products. I for one, am sick of these Bravo infomercials, I don’t know about you though. They happen upon this woman who is setting up for her therapy session. This phase has to do with writing down whatever it is that’s on your mind and then setting fire to the paper to let go of it. We saw this in NY with Alex and Jill (I think).. How well did it work out for them? Let’s skip past all the others aside from noting that Big Al didn’t want to take part in it and get to the one that matters. Teresa. It’s her show after all. She invites everyone she’s wronged to join her and says she wants to begin anew with them. All is right with the world.

Hold that thought. You just knew that this couldn’t end completely well. First of all, I’m surprised that MeGo pulled her hand out of her puppet Joey’s ass long enough to let him go on this hike with his sister since she ‘couldn’t’ be there herself to make sure he got the script right. Second, and more importantly, Teresa and the Jacalope were talking about where they are now. Teresa made some comment about Karma affecting her though her daughters. That is, what bad Teresa puts out there will come back to affect her OWN kids and she doesn’t want that. Naturally, in Jac’s phucked up mind, Teresa is talking about her and Nicolas. We see in the preview of next week, this has become an issue for the Jacalope and I’m sure it will carry into the 12 part reunion. I offered to let BB recap the reunion as a prize for discovering my change in the NJ banner picture but she told me that was no prize and declined. Any other takers to recap the reunion?

I hope she doesn’t mind but I copied this from a FB comment which about sums up this episode:

“Oh NJ is good tonight. Richie cries. Melissa is sick and Joey doesn’t seem to care. They don’t like the desert. Melissa says she’s never felt such pain and Joey points out she’s had three kids. This is great.”

Next week friends, The Jac perpetuates her feud with Teresa over this Karma comment. Joe is scared he’s going away. I’m sure he’s correct but I wonder if he somehow had wind of these indictments when the show was filming or if this is over that driver’s license nonsense. I said last week that I think Bravo knew and Joe isn’t as dumb as you people think he is. Neither is Teresa.

Comments of the night… There were many again as usual. You were all on top of your snark game last night. However, I have to give it up to NMD and AZGirl for finally introducing us to Pepper.



Happy Birthday grandmadebers

    My summary of last nights episode. Its still There as fault. If I can’t be about me then I’m not participating mego. When its a kathy scene its my cue to wash dishes, switch the laundry or surf the internet.

      Have a lovely day Grandmadebers!!!
      Happy Birthday!

      Happy Birthday Grandmadebi or Grandmadebers! Hope you have a great day! You weren’t on the newly revised bday list, but someone remembered!

    • Shiny says:

      Happy Your Day, Grandmadebers!

      And Happy Belated to all I missed. I read it all, but a day or days too late to post my thoughts or silliness. SLOOOWLY moving my 94 year old mother into assisted living apartment after 60 years in her house. Unbelievable size task. Month long bout in hospital and rehab finally convinced her to move closer to daughters. But all summer I’ve been doing a lot of 2 hour drives each way, and I’m the nearby daughter … at least another month to keep appreciating my own bed from a great distance.

      Almost all of us go through this with older relatives at some point, don’t we. I just hope I remember the lessons and make it easier on everyone before they have to demand I move.

      • Noelle says:

        Nice to see you Shiny!
        You’re a wonderful daughter.
        Bless you.

      • BB says:

        I hear you Shiny. Been there done that with my aunt (who was a hoarder) and now I’m going through a little of that with my mom. Lucky I have two daughters who I know will do the same for me one day. Hopefully I won’t be too much trouble for them. I’m trying to plan ahead as much as possible.

        • Shiny says:

          Hi, BB –
          I’m picking up boxes at the liquor store for me teetotalling mother. Going to give the wrong impression as we unpack at her new home. πŸ™‚

    Good morning everyone. Sigh. I hate the update to Gmail. I don’t know when I get my LynnFam emails. Sighhhh. πŸ™‚

    You all have ne cracking up this AM about NJ & the VMAs. I was watching the VMAs but turned & didn’t see Miley Twirk. Thk goodness I was watching LMNs movie Escaping Polygomy. πŸ™‚ Well you all be good and have a great day.

    • chismosa says:

      That looked like a good movie Powell! I hope they “escaped”

      Lol πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ

      • Powell says:

        LOL. Chismosa it was good. It was a 17yr old girl that fell in love with The Profit’s son, he got away with her. The Profit was forcing the girl to marry him. Disgusting. Ugh. It was good.

        • chismosa says:

          The profit had to marry her and she loved his son?

          I heard the book the 18th wife or some name like that was very good. All about this stuff

          I saw Tom cruise’s spooky cousin was starring in it. He’s from Lost too!!

    Good morning everyone. Thank MTH for the recap. I missed last night due to the weather cooling down and sat outside by the pool. I will try and catch up tonight! THANKS FOR POSTING PEPPER’S PICTURE.
    Happy Birthday Grandmaderbers!

  6. missusmc says:

    Just saw the video preview where Jac and Chris deciding Teresa was talking about Nicholas with Teresa’s Karma comment (which could have just as easily been about Ashlee being such an eff up in life IF it had anything to do with her kids, which I don’t believe. Seemed like an innocent statement made by T). Chris was wearing his BLK water “Defy Expectations” T-Shirt. The same slogan being attributed to Nicholas’ progress, which is implying the benefits of BLK water in autism treatment. If I were Jac, I’d be more concerned about the karma that comes from exploiting your kid’s autism for your own personal gain than what Teresa may or may not have implied. Jac’s been unstable with her kids in the past, so I’m not surprised about her reaction. But I am disappointed in Chris reacting this way.

    • Noelle says:

      T was NOT talking about Nic.

      Shame on both these twisted asses!! (Jac & Chris)

      ITA with your comment, great points to ponder.

      • missusmc says:

        Every parent wants to live in a way that wouldn’t bring shame or harm to their children. I’m pretty sure that’s what Teresa’s point was.

    • melthehound says:

      Could have also had nothing to do with the Lurkitas. Their sense of being special is really too much…

      • missusmc says:

        You have to be really self-absorbed/defensive to turn Teresa’s statement about how she feels about her life and how she lives it into an attack on Jacqueline and her child.

    • chismosa says:

      I’m sorry but “defy expectations” —– for black tar water???? What kind of marketing is that !???????!

      Makes zero ($$$ and) sense

      • missusmc says:

        Right. It has nothing to do with the black water. But it was a phrase that Nicholas’ therapist kept saying to Jac to encourage her to keep believing in him. She’s used it in a few of her blogs in regards to Nicholas and his progress. Now it’s the slogan on the BLK water bottles. And BLK has partnered with Jenny McCarthy’s autism organization as well. It’s all very gross.

        • chismosa says:

          Oh this is just gross. Totally !

          …. And this trickles down to Donnie Wahlberg and my blessed NKOTB.Lol.
          Ugh it never ends 😦

        • Kansas Girl says:

          If they weren’t telling Jac and Chris this, I wonder what they’d do with this boy? Is this “hope” the only reason they’re working with him?

    • lulu says:

      No no you see EVERYTHING is Teresa’s fault. Its raining outside, dog vomited on the carpeting, Vicki and Brooks relationship problems, Donald Trumps lawsuit and JC penney’s low apo all Teresa’s fault!!! πŸ˜‰

  7. Kat From Ohio says:

    so there’s tons of shit going down with khloe kardashian and lamar odom. i’m not surprised that they’re having problems, but i AM shocked by what the allegedly are. i feel bad for her if the the reports are true:
    also, taylor got engaged to that attorney guy. it was flashing on the bottom of E last night

    • chismosa says:

      I feel bad if they are making up the drug allegations as a spin for their marriage problems. I wouldn’t put anything past Kris Jenner, mom of
      the century

      I hope he’s ok if this is true

      • cusi77 says:

        Taylor engaged? I hope she will find happiness this time!

        • windycitywondering2 says:

          I hope that Kennedy will find love and stability.

        • T-Rex says:

          ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealinLypsMcgee found what she was looking for someone to pay her bills. Karma is a beyotch and if left his wife for her sorry ass, what’s to keep him from leaving her. The timing of this announcement is also suspect since hints have been going around that Bhills just completed filming. Got a feeling we are in for another friggin engagement surprise. Since, ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealinLypsMcgee got relegated to “friend” status and didn’t film much this year, this could be her “swan song” exit from the show

        • Rebecca says:

          She found new implants!

  8. Pinky says:

    Great Blog…..Jaco and Chris are so disgusting on so many levels

  9. AZGirl says:

    @Rebecca: Loved your comment last night about Sheriff Babeu and hazmat. Just what AZ needs is another embarrassment like NJ visiting one of our nice resorts and being stupid. Richie asking if they were in the desert is priceless.

    • cusi77 says:

      Perhaps he expecting to see the Sahara Desert… we never know what is going on on their heads!

    • Rebecca says:

      I think it’s funny that they didn’t go to Sedona for a “zen” vacation. They are either too stupid to equate Sedona with spirituality or the Sedona resorts rejected them.

      • AZGirl says:

        HA! Yea, Sedona resorts said “No Way” to NJ crew.
        Mr. AZGirl and I are heading up to Sedona on Saturday for a hike and staying overnight at a B&B. There is something (IMHO) about the air in Sedona that does make you feel that you are in a very special place.

  10. cusi77 says:

    Thank you for another great Recap MelTheHound! You have me laughing all the way through! You made it sound better than it was! Thank you! If I knew how to write I would take from your hands the 12 Reunion parts Episodes… I have several problems with this programs:

    1.- What I hear and the way I interpret it
    2.- What really was said
    3.- The Elephant in the Room, Bravo Editing
    4.- What really happened

    I will finish recapping a whole another version of this capfest! Haa!

    • melthehound says:

      Hi Cusi… I think or would hope, that those who enjoy my recaps do so because I’ve put my own twist on them. I’m sure it would be fun to read yours πŸ™‚

  11. Donna says:

    As told from an Lebanese friend; The Lebanese do not consider themselves Arabs, they say they are Phoenician. Before the war Beirut was considered little Paris. One could swim in the waters and on the same day go into the mountains to ski.

    Geez Louise, Jac is using Nick as a story line to use against Teresa, that is downright low. All she had to do is ask if she meant Nick, which was too much for her scrambled brain.

    • melthehound says:

      The one I went to college with did consider himself an Arab.. Guess it depends on who you talk to…

      • Birdwoman says:

        I have known Lebanese people who refer to themselves as Arab. My good friend will refer to himself like that in a group of people he doesn’t know too well. Otherwise, he will refer to himself as greek or greek orthodox. The others do it also I think because we do not know too much about that area of the world. The only Lebanese person that I knew who didn’t refer to herself as Arabic was a Jewish woman I worked with. Then she referred to herself as Lebanese or Jewish. πŸ™‚

        About Jacq and Chris, we continue the Teresa is the anti-Christ and is responsible for all the evil in this world story line!!

        • chismosa says:

          Bird this is interesting to me— your friend — are they ethnically Lebanese but religiously Greek Orthodox? I only ask because I’m 1/2 Greek and the diaspora always intrigues me.

          I know most Lebanese are catholic and many fled to Mexico and South America (shakira, Demian Bechir, Salma Hayek, etc)– but that’s interesting to me that there are G Orthodox in Lebanon or who are Lebanese

          In case you see this ….

    • chismosa says:

      I’ve actually always wanted to go to Beirut. Not joking.

      • Birdwoman says:

        I hear it is a great city. Well, they are having issues now but in the past…

      • ladebra says:

        I was there in 1967, and it was a beautiful city. The company I work for is doing some work in Beirut, and the project manager said they have built it back just as beautiful if not more so, than before. It was such a jewel of a city, I don’t see how! But I am glad to hear they are building back the city.

  12. I LOVE COFFEE says:

    Morning !
    Happy Birthday Grandmadebers

    Love the picture of Pepper! I love DOGS!

    I gotta tell ya’ll this is the first HW show that I like the men… more than the women.
    If it wasn’t for the men being stupid, saying stupid things and being gross, there’s……NOTHING
    Yeah for us, T showed us all her swimsuits…….AGAIN. At least we didn’t have to watch her try them all on….like last year.

    I don’t know what T’S comment meant to Jacs.

    All I thought was ….OMG……You should talk…. Look what Your Karma has done to Your daughters.
    These little girls may be without both parents for awhile.

    Thanks Mel, You did a great job!

    • melthehound says:

      You’re welcome ILC πŸ˜€

    • Orson says:

      Yeah for us, T showed us all her swimsuits…….AGAIN. At least we didn’t have to watch her try them all on….like last year.
      Yep. I was afraid that was going to happen this time. Props to Gia for stealing that thong suit. Can you imagine having to see T wearing that?

  13. windycitywondering2 says:

    I have come to have a weird queasy feeling when the NJ ambassadors of boorish behavior leave their normal stomping grounds. I feel for any other guests who sadly are at the same resorts when this crew takes over the venue – a discount or full refund should be offered those people!
    This trip is so boringly typical – grab onto whatever gaff/mistake Teresa makes and turn it into the slight of the century.
    IMHO, Wacky Jacky looked very defensive and guilty when Teresa was trying to get her friendship Zen on! No way was Teresa referring to Nicholas in that convo – I immediately thought of Ashley because we saw her get tossed away when she didn’t make Wacky look like the mother of the year. And I am sure that Caroline, Kathy and Melissa will be weighing in on Teresa’s attempt to get into the spirit of energy reading, burning bad things, zen, karma and any other word she just doesn’t understand.

    As for Chris Laurita playing into the twisted intent of Teresa into a Nicholas bash, again, IMHO, I guess he is becoming uncomfortable with their ‘autism aware-mess’ storyline or has to play along with the loonytune or suffer her wrath. So tweeter and blogs are reacting to Wacky’s “them is feuding words” in a less than compassionate way.I wondering how, or even if, Andy will broach this subject at the upcoming reunion….so here is a question for the reunion show; “Why can everyone else talk about Nicholas except for Teresa and her husband?”

    Hey Jeff, Melissa’s new hair color really compliment and enhance the stylish horns she is now sporting! Can you give Caroline a mustache and sideburns please???

    • VV says:

      I am just shocked that neither Jac nor Chris have heard that expression before. Really? I’ve hear that Karma expression all of my life and I’m sure many have too. Teresa was talking about herself and her girls. How do youse the quantum leap from that to Nic is just so typical of the cast. No matter what we are twisting and turning things to make Teresa look bad or blame her. ALL OF THEM DO IT ALL THE TIME… ENOUGH!!!!!!!

      • plainviewsue says:

        Yes, VV……….ENOUGH!!!! I can just hear all of them ganging up on Teresa at the reunion for that, when she clearly was talking about her girls.

        • Vegas Chick says:

          Considering what is going on with the Guidice’s now, I thought that Teresa’s comment was eerily prophetic. It’s as if she knew something, but I do not believe that she had any idea what the DOJ was up to at that time.

    • melthehound says:

      I’ll see what I can do with the picture WCW πŸ˜‰

  14. not THAT Jill says:

    Blah blah Brandi….her publicist asked her to take down a tweet-I’m guessing its this one!!

    • VV says:

      I saw that on Twitter and was thinking. Success has really gone to her head.
      Brandi is boring me….

      • not THAT Jill says:

        I find her twitter rants quite entertaining….she is nuts!!!

        • VV says:

          I was there looking for clues as to the follow unfollow Yofo. Found nothing and I don’t think Brandi as crazy as she can get sometimes was referring to Lisa with her tweet about (pataphrasing)..If you unfollow somebody you are weak and probably crooked a f–k.
          I just don’t think she’ll call Kisa that.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            I believe she was talking about Lisa b/c that’s the type of person she is-she doesn’t think before she speaks and it always bites her in the ass!!!

            • VV says:

              Call me naive then. How can Lisa or Ken talk to her again? I don’t think she can after being insulted that way. I just think it was not about Lisa. Maybe wishful thinking …

              • not THAT Jill says:

                If Brandi tweeted it wasn’t about Lisa and Yolanda then this wouldn’t be an issue-she hasn’t done that so it makes me believe it is about Lisa. Brandi tweets when she sneezes twice so she could for sure clear this up…if she wanted to!

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                It seems like Yolanda thinks it was about Lisa. Someone from another blog said they tweeted Yo about it and that Yo dm-ed them and pretty much said that her eyes are now open to what Lisa is all about and that she is nothing more than a ‘Hollywood friend’

                • not THAT Jill says:

                  I read that over at allabouttrh RR-I forgot about the DM!! And Yolanda said “Hollywood friends” blah blah blah…so this to me is about Lisa…how effed up is Brandi to turn on the one person who supported her from the start? What did Lisa do to Brandi??? I can’t wait for the season to start!!!

                • VV says:

                  Why woul Yolanda DM somebody about it? Fishy fishy…

                  • not THAT Jill says:

                    The HW DM people all the time….Jac followed me just to DM me and Lisa is forever sending DMs to people and then unfollowing them….the only HW that doesn’t DM (I know this b/c she tweets it every time she sneezes twice) is Brandi…idk why she doesn’t?

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    Hi VV, as Jill said it the MO of a lot of HW. I also have gotten DM’s from Jac and Lisa.

    • chismosa says:

      Ashy —



    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I went an looked. The tweet about the TSA agent was bad enough…but then I saw she posted the license of the cab driver who took her to the airport saying she thought he was going to kidnap her.

      The more and more I hear about Brandi…the more she makes me retch. It makes me wonder what I ever saw in her.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Such an alarmist!!! Blah blah Brandi!! She always has sooooooo much drama in her life!!!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          You should read some of the responses…”Brandi are you okay?” blah blah blah…You would think her followers would be use to it by now.

          I hope the cab driver gets wind of this and sues her ass.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            Her twitter fans are always so worried about her-she must love it b/c she never follows up quickly…it’s like she wants to see how many members of the “Brandi Bunch” will respond!! She really needs A LOT of attention!!

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Oh and why would she take a cab and not a car service?? I take a car service to the airport and I’m just a regular housewife!!!

        • Cartwheels says:

          because if she did then she wouldn’t be able to complain. Brandi and her diva attitudes do not surprise me at all, nothing she does is surprising, it is only pathetically predictable. Like she said on WWHL any attention is better than none.

    • VV says:

      Her TSA tweet is still on her TL.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        She won’t take it down-she doesn’t listen to anyone and she is far to “real” to delete tweets!!!!!

  16. VV says:

    Jeff, Thanks for the recrap!

    “These people make Honey Boo Boo look like quality television” had me lol

  17. chismosa says:

    Blah blah Brandi Blah–

    Al not participating —-that just tells you everything. He couldn’t write one stupid thing down ??? Ughhhh

    I liked seeing vulnerable Richie. All day every day all I think about is my parents and how long they’ll live so I feel for that, sorry. And how nice for a man to have a good solid father-son relationship. You don’t hear that much about those a lot.

    I’m sorry but everyone’s bit** devil looked sick to me. I’ve had sore throats years ago where I literally had to spit out saliva I couldn’t swallow. How sucky to get sick on your bday.
    I don’t think she could have “faked” or done anything in the stupid spiritual stuff they did. I think since she is known (not by me–OMG) as loving the “spotlight”- she would love to see the medium and contact her beloved father. Hmmm

    How do we know we are 1/2 way through the season?and why does this very successful franchise (like BH) NOT go overseas???? Did something happen in Italy that we don’t know about ?
    We know the DR situation.
    Something is off with these overseas trips I’m telling you ……
    These are the highest rated franchises !

    I effing saged πŸ”₯πŸ”₯my house, following directions and doing it on the right cycle of the moon in january and it did $hit for my house and my family. So I’m done saging. Blah blah Brandi. BBB

    I grew up with a mom who always said you suffer not yourself for what you did in your life but through your kids. Maybe it’s a cultural thing??? I don’t know why Jacq is reading into that. Then again it could be producer prodding question and perfectly edited-in timing of jacks to say that. It is the editing of against Mel/// Traumatized Tree.

    For all producer stuff. πŸ‘½πŸ‘½πŸ‘½πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’©

    Boy did Bravo luck out with the editing timing of this next episode!!! Next week to refer to the “going away” and what’s in the news ! I mean the shows are locked up months in advance.

    I love that they’re going to do the lift the horse’s foot up thing, they did that in the rehab 28 days movie that I love. So sweet!!!

    Who was abused ? Al? I’m SURE Al is going to open up to these close friends of his. God why is he even there ! They must DESPERATELY need a show for their kids

    • VV says:

      Not a single mention of the Karma comment. Why? This from the person that wrote a book on advise. She was mute about it meaning she agrees with the Lauritas. This is why her book and don’t have credibility.

  19. VV says:

    Bravo stirring the pot. They have a poll about what Teresa meant with her comment to Jac.

    • chismosa says:

      I’m telling you they pulled that out of Jacq on the TH and jumped on it.

      Not denying Jacq isn’t complicit and reading too much into it. But look at the producers. This is ridiculous.

      Serenity now πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

      • VV says:

        Did you watch the clip for next week? Chris is also saying that Tre was talking about Nick.

        • chismosa says:

          Yes I get it, so it is seeming to be WACjaq who starts this —- she needs to simmah

          She just wasnt ready to make amends with Tre if she jumped on that comment. That’s it. She just should OWN it.

          I agree VV, I see what you mean by the talk to Chris

    • plainviewsue says:

      So far the poll is on Teresa’s side. Andy is taking questions for the reunion, so mercifully this season could possibly be done soon. I cannot wait for RHOC reunion tonight. And when will NY be back already!!!!!????

    AZGirl Miss Pepper ate up the backyard because she’s so cute that she gets away with everything. πŸ™‚

    • AZGirl says:

      Thank you Powell. We start Intermediate training at PetsMart tomorrow night. I know she has lost a lot of the progress in her behavior during the 2 week break. She growled at a neighbor this morning and attacked 3 dogs on our walk yesterday. I am not looking forward to this.

  21. Powell says:

    Wow MTH! At least 12 epis left? Haven’t they been on since January?

    • Powell says:

      Kidding about Jan. but its been on for a while now.

      • melthehound says:

        My first recap was June 1. I know they haven’t filmed the reunion and there are usually 3 or 4 to go when they do. The reunions have all been 3 parters lately and we can’t forget about the shit they should have shown, aka lost footage (which will not be recapped)…

        • Powell says:

          Just since June 1st. Wow. It seems so much longer and I don’t watch. I can only imagine how long it feels to you. I don’t blame you for not recapping the Lost Footage. πŸ˜€

      • chismosa says:

        Powell I want dates. Does this show truly take up 1/2 a year of my life.
        I need to know ……I want to ween off but it’s like Lost, I want to see what’s in the hatch and if it all means anything


        • plainviewsue says:

          Ah Lost……………………………..Now that is a show!!!! Huge Lostie!!!! I must have watched every episode a million times!! Well, not quite, but a lot. Everytime I watch an episode, I see something new. There will never be another show like that.

          • chismosa says:

            Totally PVS. Never.

            I will one day maybe during the holidays when they’re cheap- but the whole series ! So good

            Never a show again like that πŸ™‚

          • Powell says:

            Sue Lost was my show. I’d like to see more. I think they have a new story to tell.

  22. Ok, so this is totally off topic, BUT I won tickets to attend Bethenny’s Calling All Girls tour tonight in Cleveland! So, me and my BFF (who have re-hashed Real Housewives every week the morning after for years) will be meeting Bethenny and surely she will choose us as her new BFFs and confidants! I AM SO EXCITED! I am hoping that I do not spill my Skinnygirl Cocktail on my dress and say something stupid…like, “PLEASE please please tell me more about Scary Island!” or “Will you do your Jill Zarin impression just once?” or “What does Simon smell like?” or “How many sticks are up the Countess’ ass?” or “What is Romana’s wine really spiked with?” Any other questions???

    • T-Rex says:

      Well TrampySueTrailerTrash is a BITCH, just sayin’

    • Powell says:

      Here we go again. That’s why the caller said “Tamra’s been a bt*h for six yrs”. Tamra just validates my feeling that her “I attempted suicide.” “I don’t know how to express feelings”were all to get sympathy and get people to watch her wedding spinoff. These HWs don’t do anything by chance. Those chicks plan what will get them what they want very carefully.

      • chismosa says:

        I don’t watch OC but let me tell you it’s hysterrrrrrrical how they keep saying LIMITED SERIES for her spinoff!

        Hahaha!! Not even Kim Z got that. Lol!!

  23. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Thanks for the recap Jeff.

  24. VV says:

    Jeff, Yes, to answer your question. Yes, we are really still watching this πŸ˜‰

  25. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Richie never fails to gross me out.
    He was so ignorant the way he charged through the resort being loud and obnoxious …farting away. Then to have the audacity to complain that his luxury room wasn’t good enough.

    Bravo needs to get him off the show.

    • chismosa says:

      I didnt know we knew who farted

      I’m sorry his line about the marrying 6 women was funny

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Hi Chi.
        If I remember correctly, Kathy scolded him after it. Either way, he still stormed through like a bull in a China shop and acting like an spoiled and obnoxious ingrate.

        I didn’t find the joke about marrying 6 women funny and saw it the same way Jeff did.

        I get that some folks find his shtick funny but he just makes my skin crawl so much that I couldn’t laugh even if I wanted to. πŸ™‚

        • chismosa says:

          I get it. Tree’s schtick does that to me and others find it adorable.
          It’s cool !

    as for NJ – what a crap fest!!!! – I’m with you Jeff – I happen to believe that there truly are people who can commune with those on the other side, but that woman was not one of them – not sure if I ever told you of my encounter with a psychic, but there was no doubt in my mind that he was the real deal –

    To AZGIRL — Pepper’s adorable
    Ps meant to tell you in the midst of Emmy TV on Bravo

    I just watched a sweet movie Year of the Dog again last night (it’s on TMC/ SHO a lot)
    It’s from the guy who did the brilliant show Enlightened and it’s about a dog lover and stuff she goes through.

    • Boobah says:

      Enlightened was an awesome show! Can’t believe they cancelled it!

    About the VMAS last night I agree with you on everything except I do like J.T. but you can tell its all gone to his head, when they did a close up of him he doesn’t even look cute anymore. He needs to gain some weight. He is super talented though.

    Robin Thicke is good, I like him but i think hes barely getting more recognizable these past couple years. I love his music style.

    Oh and I didn’t used to like Lady Gaga but I have been the past year now, I love the way she dances!!

    Miley must be really feeling it today, I have only read ONE good comment about her from like 3 different websites, she must not be doing hours of pilates anymore. lol. YUCK.

    • chismosa says:

      I saw JT in concert when he brought Timbaland out to sing with him…. I am a major NSync’er
      I think his ego has gotten too big. Maybe the relaxer they used on his curls went through the skull. Ha!

      I am a Gaga fan hate to say. Woman can write, sing, play instruments, and I love her sense of rhythm

      I happen to have watched madonna’s MDNA concert on EPIX the other night.
      I saw madonna years ago- I don’t remember what tour it was. Not sure if you’re a Madge fan

      For ME– Madonna is the best dancer, better than J-Ho, Paula Abdul, Gaga
      I LOVE LOVE LOVE Madge’s dancing. And the concert I attended she didn’t dance as much as I wanted and for the Super Bowl I heard she had hurt herself so she didnt dance as much as she normally did.

      I didnt expect much from this MDNA tour and let me tell you (somethin!) — I would have shelled out 300$ to go to that show. I can’t stop thinking about it and I watched it like 4 days ago.

      She danced so much I was dying because I LIVE for her dancing. She started as a dancer —

      Ok well Miley is GETTING it today I LOVE it. Lol!!!!
      She’s such trash. Poor Australian fiancΓ© // fake boyfriend’s family must have really had a talking to him to put an end to the “engagement”

    • Powell says:

      I love JT, love love love RT & I’m not a big Gaga fan but I liked her last night. The new hip is holding up well.

    β€œ@YolandaHFoster: @AllAboutTRH @BrandiGlanville @LisaVanderpump ❀I say stop speculating, wait and see #Season5comingsoon”

    Brandi gets crazed with every follow/ unfollow situation. She would have called Lisa out by name if there was anything to it.

    β€œ@BrandiGlanville: If ur gonna follow me just to be dicky to me, u can go!!! BYE!”

    I don’t believe for a second Lisa unfollowed Yolanda. I think it was a slow day on somebody’s blog page.

    • not THAT Jill says:

      Oh I believe it-no one is denying it and Yolanda and Brandi love to tweet so they would both say something….and I can see Brandi not calling Lisa out by name-she gets way more attention by being cryptic!!!

      • Rebecca says:

        I happened upon that blog the minute it was posted. Lisa was still following Yolanda.

        • not THAT Jill says:

          Which blog? So many of them picked up the story and I don’t know where it all started

      • not THAT Jill says:

        And this was Yolanda’s reply when someone asked Lisa if she and Yolanda were feuding

        @YolandaHFoster: @JustinJamesL @LisaVanderpump ❀Hollywood kind of friends UNFOLLOW, Real friends pick up the phone, meet for a coffee and discuss differences

        Another cryptic response-why not say “no” if it weren’t true and squash the rumors???

        • not THAT Jill says:

          And this was her other answer when asked about their friendship

          @YolandaHFoster: @HouswivesHodown ❀I say follow those who inspire you, if they don’t their words merely become a irritating sound that does not mean anything

          Maybe it’s all promotion for the show or maybe it’s all true-

        • chismosa says:


    • Powell says:

      I don’t know why or how it happens but my Twitter acct unfollows or drops people. I’ve had to follow people again at least 3 times. Its possible that happened to Lisa.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Yes, I remember Marisa having a twitter melt down that Kyle was no longer following her and caused a stink…to which Kyle responded it was a twitter glitch and to not be upset over it. I mean, these folks have each others phone numbers….why can ‘t they call each other and sort there sh!t out.

        • Powell says:

          Right. And these people have children.

        • not THAT Jill says:

          Yes RR I remember that with Marisa and Kyle and everyone jumped on Kyle and said she was a bad friend and so on…but Kyle cleared everything up right away and that’s the difference-Brandi Lisa and Yolanda are not clearing thing up!!!

    E! Fashion Police will have a VMA special tonight.

        Joan Rivers hold back? No way. I’ll have to watch.

      • TexasTart says:

        Kelly and Miley are tight, but I don’t think that will stop Joan – the material to work with is just too good!

        So Mr. Tart is not well informed in popular culture because he has more important things to think of. So that’s my job, lol. I told him how much I disliked Miley’s performance last night and he saw clips on the news this morning. He said “Twerking?! Is that what they call a grind now?!”

        I told him, no she doesn’t have the equipment for twerking – nor the movements! So I load up a You tube video of said movement by someone else that had it down – his eyes about popped out, LOL!

      • TexasTart says:

        Chismosa, Kelly is already defending her on Twitter…
