Tamra’s Wedding Numero Tres / Real Housewives of Miami Recap and Cast Blogs Blogged

Tamra’s Wedding Numero Tres by NMD

In an attempt to make Tamra’s wedding as dramatic as possible, we learn that she doesn’t have her seating chart ready three days before the big day.  Not only that – but she had started her seating chart with FIRST NAMES only, and she’s invited lots of Steves. Oh, and her wedding dresses will be delivered at 11 am the day of the wedding. The wedding planner is shocked and dismayed.   Unfortunately, this was the most interesting scene of the show.

Next up is the waxing scene they showed in the previews.  Oh joy, I thought I had slept through it last week.

Fast forward to the rehearsal dinner.  To class it up, Tamra has a loud conversation with Vicki about the waxing.  Tamra’s brother passes out the moonshine in a jar -and Heather wants to bring out the febreze to disinfect everything.  Terry has some gets drunk.  Tamra and her brother hug it out. He starts to bawl and says Eddie brings out the best in her.  Vicki gives an emotional toast, but I’m mesmerized by how awful her hair looks.  Terry makes an inappropriate comment, and Vicki gives him the stare down.  Stay away from that moonshine Terry!

Day of the wedding.  They show up at the hotel.  Tamra looks really different without a full face of makeup.  Not terrible – just different.  They all get ready yada yada yada.

The rest of the show was the wedding and reception.  It was okay – people looked like they had fun.  So let’s cut to the chase and look at what the ladies were all wearing.



Unlike Bravo – I want to keep things in order – so here are the Cast Blogs blogged from last week.  (HydrangeaHussy was sick).  And to make things even more confusing – HydrangeaHussy will be taking over blogging the actual show for the remainder of the season.  So we’ve got a double hitter today from her.  NMD

Miami Blogs Blogged

By HydrangeaHussy

Well, there were some short blogs this week.  Since the focus wasn’t on Adriana’s lies, the women generally avoided the topic.  I was a little disappointed that Joanna & Lea didn’t comment on the behavior of the Mean Girls at Polo.  I found Adriana, Ana & Marysol to be unnecessarily petty & vicious.  Why do they spend so much time focusing on someone they claim not to care about?

Joanna Krupa

“Joanna’s Bangin’ New Look”

I really hope the women don’t pick their own titles.  Joanna states that she opted to change it up this year & wear bangs in an attempt to forget about the drama of last year’s gala.  “The gala inspired me to revamp my look this year in order to forget the hurtful memories and accusations that still hunt me from last year.”  She goes on & on… about the bangs.  A successful model is like a chameleon that looks different for every shoot, so yes, I loved having bangs.”  OK, you changed your look, you wore fake bangs, you love them…now move on!

“I applaud Lea for working so hard and putting her personal life aside so she can make a change in children’s lives.”  I’ve worked with at-risk children, so it’s great to see such a spotlight put on these kids & efforts to help them.  Joanna then goes on to thank her fans & admit her mistakes.  “I had my troubles, I recognize them, I drank and misbehaved, but then again, who didn’t?”  I have to say that I admire someone who can act like a fool on national TV, own it & try to move on.  Love her or hate her, Joanna makes no apologies for who she is.  While it was a little refreshing that she didn’t spend time on the mean girls this week, I did miss her snarky comments.

Lea Black

“Lea Embraces Friends & Ignores Enemies”

 “When it comes to a “cause” and raising money, it’s been about if I can make someone else’s life better, easier, or more fulfilled — then I have a responsibility to do it, because I am blessed and because I can.”  I think that it’s wonderful that Lea recognizes how blessed she is and has found a way to give back to the community.  The name-dropping & gushing over jewels is over the top, but that’s what this show is about.  Lea gives a long list of thanks in her blog & I’m not going to bore you with all of the names dropped there.  We all know by now that Lea collects celebrities.

As for Team Adriana, “when it comes to relationships and friendships, I sort of see it like this. If you appreciate me and are good to me, you can count on me, even if sometimes you misbehave. … Don’t expect me to condone or enable your bad behavior at my expense and then be surprised when I expose the facts and underlying truth in defense of myself.”  Lea has built a charity around second chances, so I find it hard to believe that the same wouldn’t apply to her friends.  With Lea, what you see is what you get & she seems to be willing to forgive once someone owns their actions & apologizes.  Adriana’s problem is that she won’t admit her mistake.

Alexia Echevarria

“Lisa’s No Peacemaker”

Alexia begins by addressing her non-attendance at the gala.  “I didn’t go to Lea’s gala because I was very sick, and that’s the truth. I think Lea believes that and knows it in her heart… I don’t play those games, and even though Marysol and Adriana didn’t want me to go, I was standing firm and I was going.”  First, Alexia made the point, during the show, that she was losing her voice due to the Venue party.  She didn’t make any mention of being sick initially.  Alexia also stated, during the show, that she was reconsidering the gala based on what the mean girls said.  I think she gave in to peer pressure.  I can understand that she didn’t want to spend the day defending her decision to Team Adriana, but she should have stood up to the mean girls a little more & not put up with their vicious attacks. “I know Marysol and Adriana felt bad for the hard time they gave me. They apologized later.  I waited until the end of the day to tell them I was going, because I didn’t want to ruin the day for them.”  How would telling them that you plan to attend an event ruin their day?  Are they that immature?  The answer is, obviously, YES, they are immature enough to believe that you have to pick sides to be a good friend.

“It’s so uncomfortable to be in this position. I want to be friends with both sides like I’ve been until now. I don’t feel I have to take sides … I have nothing to do with their problems, and I’m getting tired of it. I have my own problems, which are much more important than theirs for that matter.”  I wish that Alexia would do what she says & just stay out of it.  She says that she is a friend to everyone, but this episode made it clear that she’s playing both sides.  It would have been so easy to tell Team Adriana that she didn’t want to hear about it.  But she chose to sit quietly & smile with they bashed her alleged friend, Lea. “I didn’t want the day to be about Lea and her gala. I want to keep my friendships separate and not go from one group to the other talking about each other.”  I think that she could have mentioned the gala without making the whole day about Lea.  If the other women chose to make it all about Lea (like they did!), that’s their problem.

“What I’m also very tired about is Lisa talking about the Cubans. What kind of ignorant comment is that?”  Lisa stated in a past episode that the Cuban community was “like a gang.”  That comment was shown in the recap at the beginning of this episode.  I re-watched the episode, paying attention & did not see Lisa make any comments, other than pointing out that it appears to be Lea against ‘all of the Cubans.’  Apparently Alexia missed the prior episode when the comment was actually made.  Anyway, the comments may not have been in good taste, but I don’t think Lisa meant to be offensive.

Lisa Hochstein

“Up Close and Personal with Flo Rida”

Lisa begins by apologizing to anyone who may have been hurt by her comments regarding surrogacy.  “My approach to using a surrogate is very different now than what it was at this time. I am much more comfortable with the idea and realize that it’s a blessing that this is even an option in today’s world for us. I have come to understand that the bond between a mother and child doesn’t just come from carrying that child. Even though I have not had the experience of carrying a baby full term, I think my comments may have been a little insensitive to others out there who may be adopted or have used a surrogate. For that I apologize.”  Since I was one who took issue with the comments, I’m glad that she has changed her opinion.  It’s been hard to watch their struggles, since I’ve watched family & friends go through the same thing.

She goes on to explain Lenny’s work schedule & the public perception it can create.  “Many times I show up to events, dinners, and social gatherings solo. I know many people think that there’s probably trouble in paradise, but it is simply because my husband works so much.”  I think that after this season it’s obvious that Lenny is very much in love with his wife.  They have opened up to the audience & shown the true issues in their marriage.  “He does it because he absolutely loves what he does and has a hard time turning down patients.”

As for the gala, “I know how hard putting together an event is, because my yearly Halloween party to raise money for charities close to our heart is not an easy task. Lea’s gala is much bigger at this point being that she has been growing it for 19 years, and it takes much more planning than my Halloween ball.”

Adriana de Moura

“Adriana Loves the Gay Community”

“I had the best time ever going to watch the gay polo match in Palm Beach! … I was amongst people who were not the judgmental kind… I knew I could let my guard down and just enjoy a day free of drama, and boy did I need that breather!”  Adriana chooses to skim over her behavior at the Polo.  I’m glad that she had a great time at the Polo, but it seemed to me that she spent most of her time complaining about or putting down Lea.  That doesn’t seem like a ‘breather’ to me.  Adriana either needs to own up to her actions & apologize, or just drop it.  Whining about Lea constantly doesn’t help her case at all, just makes her look immature.

“I love the gay community and always relate and connect to them. We share the same appreciation for beauty, details, art, and we like to live life to the fullest!”  Adriana has gotten lots of comments about how stereotypical & ignorant her comments about the gay community are.  One insightful reader pointed out that Adriana has said repeatedly that her marriage license was just a piece of paper, but that ‘piece of paper’ that she devalues so much is something that her gay friends are unable to have at this time.  “How insipid would life be without them in it?  I feel like one of them and appreciate all the glamour and fun they bring to our otherwise plain, boring lives.”

Marysol Patton

I’m hoping that Marysol was appalled by her behavior onscreen this week & chose to just lie low.


Real Housewives of Miami – S3 Ep06 – “A Ple-thora of Lies”

By HydrangeaHussy

Alright boys & girls, I’m taking on both the show & the blogs for Miami this week!  Not much drama, but we do get the beginning of the dueling weddings.  Here we go…

As we start this episode, Lisa’s in-laws are in town. We know from last season that they have a somewhat rocky relationship.  Lisa is not super excited about the visit.  Marina wants to expose Lisa to Russian foods & has taken her to a Russian grocery/cafe.  I have to agree, that fish did not look appetizing.  Lisa says that she’s working on the relationship, but she’s having trouble.  There’s a fine line between being respectful of your in-laws & being a doormat.  It was nice to see Lisa sticking up for herself a little this time around.  Last season she just took the criticism.  This is going to take some effort on both of their parts.

Adriana is at home, interrupting her son’s Chinese homework.  Now, Alexia took issue with Lisa’s comments about Cubans.  I think Adriana’s inappropriate Chinese impression was just as offensive.  Now on to the important part (& the reason for taping this conversation) – Adriana & Frederic’s non-marriage.  Adriana says that they didn’t feel the need to discuss “paperwork” with a child.  However, this wasn’t just “paperwork” Adriana, this was a legally binding marriage certificate with a civil ceremony.  She blames Lea for forcing this discussion with Alex, “thank you Lea.”  Adriana will never pass up an opportunity to take a shot at Lea.  Does anyone know if Lea was the one who leaked the story or is Adriana just blaming her?  Anyway, Lea texting Alex is just inappropriate.  She should have either texted Adriana to invite Alex, or let RJ invite Alex.

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-306-04Just like Lisa, Lenny is trying to play peace-maker.  He invites Romain & Frederic over for a gentleman’s chat.  They get right to the heart of it – the tweet.  Romain was hurt that Frederic called Joanna a whore/prostitute.  I appreciate him sticking up for his woman.  Frederic mans up & apologizes.  Romain accepts the apology.  The men decide to move on.  Lisa comments that the women could take a lesson from the men in their ability to work through an issue so quickly & easily.  Haha!  Silly girl!  If the women did that, there wouldn’t be a show!  Lenny – 1, Lisa – 0.   During the mediation, Lisa & MIL are upstairs for girl time.  MIL was immediately charmed by Frederic, but not so impressed with Romain.

Alexia goes to therapy with Frankie.  It’s good to see her taking an active role in her son’s recovery.  She’s lucky to be able to spend so much time with him during this difficult time.  A lot of mothers don’t have that option or opportunity.  I hate to see any child suffer a severe or traumatic injury.

Joanna & Marta are on the phone.  They are trying to work out their relationship.  Marta has been a very vocal opponent of Joanna’s relationship with Romain.  Joanna wants Marta’s blessing for the marriage.  Marta’s only way to be on the show is to be part of the wedding, so of course she’s going to give her blessing!  I really hope she stays out of it from now on & just supports her sister.  Unless, of course, she has proof of infidelity.  Joanna asks Marta to be her maid of honor.  I wonder how Romain will react to that news, since he was very vocal about his dislike for Marta’s interference in their relationship.

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-306-09On to one of the most uncomfortable family dinners ever!  Lisa is trying so hard!  Lisa’s MIL is upset because Lisa doesn’t call her enough.  It has to be exhausting to deal with a MIL like that.  Lisa points out that she doesn’t feel the need to make them a high priority because she doesn’t feel that her MIL doesn’t like her.  She expresses that & her in-laws just ignore it.  How hard would it be to give Lisa a little affirmation.  The MIL then says that Lenny must not love her anymore because he seems to have a mission in life to make her miserable.  Lenny stands up to her by explaining that he does love her but doesn’t appreciate the constant attacks on his wife.  MIL says that it’s Lisa’s fault.  Lenny counters by saying that it isn’t Lisa’s fault.   He says that she’s “not nice to anyone” anymore.  Good for him!  Lisa tries to offer the olive branch by offering to spend more time with her MIL while she’s in town.

Another dress shopping adventure!  Adriana & the girls are looking for bridesmaid dresses.  Adriana wants everyone in white, which seems odd to me.  As Alexia says, they don’t want to be competition for Adriana.  Lisa comments on how nice it is to be with everyone & have no drama.  Of course Marysol jumps in with a snide comment about Lea.  These ladies just can’t miss a chance for a jab.  Adriana wants Lisa to be in her wedding, but not in Joana’s because she doesn’t want a “double agent.”  Geez!  These women act like high schoolers with their ‘you can’t be friends w/her b/c I don’t like her’ attitudes!

Meanwhile, Lea arrives at Joana & Romain’s new house.  Joana gives a tour.  In her TH, Lea calls the house a “money pit.”  Kind of rude.  I have to ask, what in the world is Lea doing with the cushion?  Is she really that concerned about the sun for the two minutes she was out there?  Joana is super stressed about planning her wedding & moving.  Marta hasn’t dropped her life to help Joana with the wedding & Joana is disappointed.  I can understand that Joana wants her sister there to help, but she can’t just expect her sister to drop everything & fly across the country to look at flowers.  I guess if you’re Joanna & the world revolves around you, it’s expected.  In the real world, most people are lucky if their friends/family can afford to take off work for the wedding itself.  But if you’re Lea, you can drop everything for a girl’s trip to LA.  They decide to include Lisa.  Of course, thanks to the miracle of BravoTV, they call during the dress shopping!

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-306-17Here we go, Adriana has some paper of her own!  During her bridesmaid dress shopping, she pulls out an article from 1995 about Lea’s “secret wedding.”  Here’s the full article.  Adriana says that Lea’s “real name” is Lisa Heller.  Actually the article says that she’s Lisa Lea Heller, married named Black.  Lea was married four months after her secret ceremony & Adriana thinks that it’s the same thing.  Um, not unless Lea’s friends were helping her support herself during the time because they were under the impression that she was broke & alone.  Lisa tries to point out the difference between four months and four years, but Adriana isn’t having that.  I have no idea what Lea’s reasons were for not disclosing the marriage immediately, but the article implies that the Blacks were simply waiting for renovations to be finished at their home.  Seems very different than the myriad of reasons Adriana has given.  I’ll hold judgment until we hear from Lea on this matter.  “It’s just a job in itself, to keep both of these feisty girls happy.”  I agree Lisa!!!

During a shopping trip with Marysol & Adriana, Lea calls to invite Adriana, Alex & Frederic to RJ’s birthday.  I love how these phone calls always happen while groups of women are together.  I’m sure that’s just a coincidence, lol.  In all seriousness, I’m glad to see both mothers putting the kids ahead of their petty issues.  We get more pettiness & passive aggressive comments from Marysol.  But, I agree with Marysol (shocker!), “send Frederic!”

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-306-20I expected RJ’s birthday to be one of those over-the-top parties that we love to see!  Lea says that she was shocked when she found out that RJ planned the party & ordered a bunch of stuff for it.  I generally try to avoid commenting on people’s kids or their parenting skills, but there is no way that I could have ordered a bunch of stuff without my parents knowing!  Does this kid have a credit card at 14?   Lea is surprised by RJ’s theme for the party.  I can’t even figure out what the theme is, but I love that Lea just lets RJ run with it.  He’s old enough to decide for himself what he wants.  The kids really seemed to enjoy the military style faux combat.  I was a little surprised that Lea didn’t have a tent or something so the boys could continue playing outside even if it rained.  It seems like she would have planned for that, since she manages to put together such a huge gala every year.

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-306-25I was glad to see Alexia, Lisa & Joanna make appearances.  Alexia was worried that she would get the third-degree about her non-attendance at the gala, but Lea doesn’t mention it.  Way to go Lea!  Take the high road & move on!  Did Joana really think that Romain was going to remember the gift?  Silly girl!  Then he chooses that moment to tell Joanna that he & Frederic have sort-of-made-up.  Joanna isn’t super thrilled but she agrees to be civil.  She even accepts Frederic’s apology.  Romain & Joanna confuse Alex with RJ.  Can’t wait to see what Adriana has to say about that!

Adriana shows up with the immediate drama, complaining that she doesn’t want to be in the house. Lea is hurt that Adriana didn’t speak to her.  In her TH, Adriana says that she showed up because she didn’t want the boys to suffer.  Then why show up?  I doubt RJ cared whether his mom’s friends were there.  I know that when my friends have parties for their kids, the kids don’t care whether I’m there.  I go to be supportive of my friend.  The ladies are called up to the “stage” to sing happy birthday to RJ.  Lisa & Joanna, in their TH’s, comment on how awkward & bordering on inappropriate that was.  It seemed forced to me.  That was RJ’s party, not a chance for his mother to put her friends in the spotlight.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Good tv last night. DWTS was soooo good. Miami was verrrry interesting. Have a great day.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      hi Powelly!! It’s humpday eve, Eve Girl!!! There, I SAID IT!! I missed DWTS but will try to catch it on the internet. I’m just so glad Wendy’s back!!! My afterwork routine is back…yeah!!

      • Powell says:

        Ooops Miss Lainey. I’m glad you remembered. Happy hump day eve. 🙂
        DWTS to me has some of the best dancers for the 1st epi. I was pleasantly surprised. I’m glad Wendy is back. I can get my giggles when I work at home on Thursday.

    • BB says:

      DWTS was very good.

  2. Powell says:

    Isn’t numero tre the charm? 😉

  3. Good morning –
    Thank you Jill for capturing Penny’s blog – it’s up again on Faux’s site

    Allmost every word is redacted. These people are UNBELIEVABLE. That’s all.

  4. ladebra says:

    Thank you NMD and HydrangeaHussy for the blogs. I really appreciate the time and work all the people that blog put into keeping us up to date on the housewife/reality world. It gets exhausting trying to keep up!

  5. Amalfi says:

    Pro tip: Don’t put Alexis between flatchested Lydia and Heather. She is overwhelming on a regular basis, but that comparison is ridiculously stark.

    I had been enjoying Alexis’s updated, fresh 2013 OC style … pre-wedding at least. Hope she hasn’t regressed.

  6. Amalfi says:

    Also, Vicki’s chest is gigantic. Thankfully she usually covers them except for that eye bleach inducing couple of chest exposing outfits in Whister and at her winter party, but for everyone who mocks Alexis, take a look at Vick.

  7. HuskerHuny says:

    I wish I could get interested in Miami but I just can’t. There is not one woman on that show I can find any common ground with. They let the only good one go – the lawyer chick. I liked her, her daughters and her ex-husband. Plus she showed some intelligence.

    Who wears those kind of clothes to a wedding? I’m speechless! Show some respect and cover up ladies. A wedding is about the bride (unfortunately for this wedding that’s Tamra) and you should dress accordingly and not take the shine off of the main attraction. You definitely took that shine and not in a good way. Las Vegas called and they want their showgirl wardrobe back! Tone it down already! But I do think the bridesmaid dresses were appropriate for ladies of that age.

    It’s cloudy and we finally got some rain; not a lot, but some. Back to the 90s tomorrow but not for long fortunately. I love the fall! Everyone have a great Tuesday!

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Agreed HuskerHunny. Ana was a great addition to the cast, her daughters… meh, but the banter between her and Rob was amusing. I guess Lea must’ve insisted on her being phased out after the reunion spanking. Too bad.

  8. If anyone is wondering what happened to BehindBleuEyes – she is just busy at work and couldn’t continue to blog for us – plus she grew a little tired of the shows. You can read her blog here:


    • TexasTart says:

      Thanks NMD, I had wondered what happened to the Miami recaps but didn’t want to ask. Thanks for the blog today and cheers to HydrangeaHussy for the blog summaries AND the recap! I’ll have to read later, just sneaked in on the blog to see what the main topic is and you know I enjoy Miami and will be back to comment! 😛

    • T-Rex says:

      Jnntj, I don’t Facebook can you give us a gist of what she wrote?

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Sure T-Rex

        “Hey everyone-wanted to give you a heads up that Lynn & the blog came up quite organically on today’s episode of The Real Deal on The Stir-there is a LOT of back story this week and both NY and NJ are referenced. Theist is not up yet but I’ll send it out when it goes live this afternoon.

  9. AZGirl says:

    Thank you NMD and HydrangeaHussy for the blogs. Up at 4 a.m this morning to get to the gym and my battery was dead. So much for trying to get back into my routine. Someone at the cycle class text me and said the instructor planned an endurance ride just for me. Bummer.

    I am still at a loss why Bravo is giving the Manzo’s a spin off. ZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    • Rebecca says:

      Bravo gave them a pilot…. no one is going to watch it.

    • VV says:

      Andy has mommy issues and wishes BitterClown was his mom? He sure loves her.

      Andy has a crush on Albie?

    • lizzle says:

      My issue w/ the Manzo spin-off is that I think there is plenty of room for her storyline on RHONJ. Caroline and Albert are fighting and it probably has a lot to do with all the grown children starting their own lives. THAT is a highly relatable storyline for the audience to experience. EVERYONE is tired of the “blame Teresa for rumors started by Melissa’s own friends and former lovers” storyline. Forget about lifting a horses foot… Siren’s media has beat this horse to death. I now speculate that Siren’s media has no creative director… because 3 season’s of the same thing is just lazy and highly uncreative.

    • Powell says:

      That’s just another HW related show I’m not watching. No skin off my nose. 🙂 There are too many great shows coming on this Fall/Winter. I think the only way Bravo is going to get it is if the viewers really aren’t into these spinoffs then we don’t watch. I know many people don’t like Kim Z but there are some aspects of her that I do like so I do watch her show. I like Kandi but I don’t like her show so I don’t watch.

  10. BB says:

    Thanks for stepping up HydrangeaHussy. I’ve never watched Miami, but just the same I appreciate your taking the time to blog the show AND the blogs for us. I have been Bravo free for weeks now. It’s kind of nice.

  11. Rebecca says:

    “Don’t expect me to condone or enable your bad behavior at my expense and then be surprised when I expose the facts and underlying truth in defense of myself.” – Lea’s blog last week.

    “No, I didn’t put an article in the paper about Adriana’s marriage license.” – Lea’s blog this week.

    I can’t stand Lea. Talking out of both sides of her as again. I don’t want to get into an argument over semantics here, but she blames it on a somebody’s twitter. Yes, you stupid old hag, we know it was you feeding the info.

    Such a hypocrite, such a passive aggressive, martyr, bitch. You can praise her all you want for the “BLACK Gala” (notice there’s nothing about the actual charity in the title) but when a majority of the funds raised go to her ego (and flying in jewelers and D-List celebrities) and the charity gets pennies, I’m going to call her out.

    • T-Rex says:

      Where can you show us that the Charity gets just pennies. Everything I researched shows that they give quite a bit of money to the charities, much more than a lot of others out there. If you want to call her out, which is absolutely fine, maybe you could provide the place where you got that information. I live in Florida and these folks are very well regarded when it comes to their charitable contributions, and trust me a lot of folks dislike Roy Black for numerous reasons and have tried loads of ways to take him down. If there were improprieties with their Charity there would be loads of articles out there about it. I am not a Lea supporter, and just actually curious.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Pennies, really? how sad!! I did not know that. Are you sure?

    • chismosa says:


  12. T-Rex says:

    Lea did not “out” the marriage information, I remember at the time a reporter was researching the women and came up with it. In addition, Lea did NOT in any way, shape or form deny the fact that she got married in a civil service, but had a bigger public wedding later, lots of folks due this for a variety of reasons. I know someone that did this because they were purchasing a home and wanted both names on the document, so they got married by the courts, but had their lavish wedding about 6 weeks later. Wedding had been planned for a year, and they weren’t going to change the date because they found a house quicker than they thought. What Adriana has done is LIE LIE LIE LIE, about pretty much anything to do with the original marriage. First she LIED that it wasn’t valid due to the spelling of her name, then LIED she wasn’t present to get the document, only Fredrick was there, she LIED that she didn’t go to the Courts after the 3 day waiting period and get married but a Justice of the Peace, LIED that she didn’t actually file the document, since it is clearly there for all to see in the court documents. This woman is a certified Bitch and a Looney Tune, who also LIED about studying at the Sorbonne, she may have walked by the place, but she was never enrolled nor studied there. What else is this woman lying about? I think almost everything that comes out of her mouth is probably a LIE.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Well, I studied at the Art Institute of Chicago!! No, wait, I think I’m lying…I just FEEL as if I’ve studied there, when in fact, i ate at a cafe’ across the street from it, so that I could sit there, eat and STUDY the architecture of the building as I sipped on my cocktail. Does that count? Oh and I, too, am a “cunning linguist” (Andy’s joke – credit to Mr. Andy)…no I only speak two languages. I’m lying again. Oh and I never had a church wedding (much Chismosa’s surprise), so…am I really married?? After 29 years, I never felt married. NO, I’m lying again. I am, married.

    • VV says:

      * Disclaimer: I don’t watch RHOM. I catch parts here and there and read the blogs.

      Adriana’s stories don’t add. She strikes me as a user and opportunist that will do whatever it takes to achieve what she wants. She strikes me a like a little Melissa Gorga in that regards.

      • T-Rex says:

        VV I don’t watch the show either, but being in Florida they do some writeups in the papers here about the HW on this show. I also read the blogs, not sure who is getting the proverbial Bravo “bitch-edit” from the blogs, I think they are all pretty bitchy and petty.

      • lizzle says:

        I watch the show and if you don’t believe Adriana now… you will be convinced without a doubt that she is a liar if you ever started watching. Her acting is so, so, so bad. I generally like Miami because it is upbeat and fun… but that Polo match was dark! They were just bitching and bitching and bitching about Lea. Ughhh… those ladies need to get a life.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          It seemed like a really fabulous event, so hopefully, they really did enjoy it and only did the Lea Gossip for our benefit. Otherwise, what would they have to talk about, right? Well, I ask that, but would have welcomed hearing them talk about anything else.

          • lizzle says:

            I’ll take your word for it, because I didn’t see much of the event. All I remember was some wild cat winning best in show… for what, I have no idea. Maybe I spaced out. I just saw bitchin, bitchin, Lea is the master manipulator, Alexia has gone to the dark side, bitchin, bitchin, bitchin. Yeah, I probably spaced out.

        • chismosa says:

          Lizzle also that was an event they were at for HOURS and in light of all going on in the armpit if America franchise, editing naturally wanted us only ONLY to see them talking about the (prom)Queen of England

          Not that they didnt but a polo match/ voting
          event likely was all day long

    • Rebecca says:

      I’m not defending Adrianna…. but Lea Black is a lying snake and I wouldn’t put it past her to dig up the dirt and pass it along. It’s not like she doesn’t have the means or motivation.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        I like Adriana, and her wedding shenanigans aside, I believe she received assistance while she was single…. not attached to Frederique. I remember S1 Lea admonishing Adriana for partying away from Frederique, reminding her that he was supporting her. Which is it? Also anything given as a friend shouldn’t be divulged as an enemy. Lea may have gotten Adrianna business contacts but in Adrianna she had a fierce foot soldier who would go against any of Lea’s enemies in a nano second! She even sided w/ Lea against Marysol even when she knew Lea just wanted to destroy her business. Lea used Adrianna as her kept pet and dumped her when she wouldn’t defend her during the reunion. Lea is a collector who gets bored and moves on.

        • chismosa says:

          I agree Amber and that’s why I think when HO and Lisa catch on to her, Lea will be gone next season UNLESS she has a new HW signed on to be her soldier

        • Laineylainey says:

          I didn’t see her as feeling bored by Adri, I think she felt betrayed by Adri. But that’s from my own little sinkhole. My perspective gets a wee skewed from down here.

      • chismosa says:

        Totally Rebecca
        I hold that as the reason Ana is not on more/ signed on fully


      • Laineylainey says:

        Refresh my memory…what did she lie about? I keep seeing that she is a liar on this board, but I don’t know when she lied. Enlighten me. See me. Feel me. Touch me. Enlighten me.

    Sorry if this has already been discussed, but they are reporting on some other sites that those snoosefest Manzo’s are getting a spinoff. I mean it’s like the people that are liked the least get spinoffs lately.

    • MelTheHound says:

      Looks like it.. Question is, who cares? With all the rewedding spinoffs, who has time or desire to watch that snoozefest of a family? I wonder who they blew to get the gig…

      From what I heard, they have a green light on just a pilot. If no one watches it…that will be the end of it. I was so mad when Bravo tricked my DVR into recording that Manzo-thon but coding it as RHONJ.

    When I saw reviews if Melissa’s book on Amazin this morning, she had 5 “one star” reviews and 1 “five star” review. Now her fans are starting to write reviews on how fabulous she is and her book too. MAJOR BARF!!!

    Apparently Bethenny continues to scrape from the bottom of the Barrie for guests. Dick Wakaka tweeted he was a panel again on B show this morning. Now I remember B saying they film 2 episodes a day to lower cost of production so, I’m not sure if Dick is playing Time Lines games here or even worst Bethenny invited him again.

    Ewwwww on people
    And what a stupid title for the show. V word!!!

    The show will follow Caroline’s doting husband Al, her son Albie’s exploits on the dating scene, daughter Lauren’s deliberations about marrying long-term beau Vito Scalia, and son Chris’s latest entrepreneurial schemes – you might remember his infamous stripper/car wash idea from Real Housewives of New Jersey.

    • VV says:

      Is Bravo paying for Lauren’s wedding too?

      Seriously, nobody on this family has charisma. Sorry. I’ll pass.

      • chismosa says:

        I love how Albie has no career stuff.
        Daddy will get him something …..

        I have a feeling Lauren will not last with Vito OR a verrrrrrrrry long engagement

        • VV says:

          Believe me Vito has been given fear warning by everybody that watches the show. If he marries her, it’s on him. More telegraphed how moody Lapbamd is cannot be possibly made.

      • Powell says:

        VV you know Caroline is going to push Lauren into marrying Vito just so Lauren gets a Bravo paid for wedding.

          Maybe she’ll do a “destination” wedding just to get bravo to pay for it. Maybe Italy.

      So the only thing that the Manzo’s don’t show is Al at work but everything else they already show. They can just add 5 minutes of Al at work each NJ epi & that will cover everything.Sheeeessh.

  29. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Hello All. Great blog as usual. Miami was one of my favorites but i’m quickly getting annoyed with it, especially with producers downsizing Ana’s role in the show. Marysol obviously can’t film as much without the GrandDameMamaElsa who is recuperating and WAS Marysol’s storyline. However, Ana was a frigging firecracker whose take no prisoners style made great TV as she was able to fluster the unflappable crude, cackling loud mouth LeaBlack. Then you have Lisa as a flipflopper who floats from alliance to alliance – oops BigBrother wrong show but right analogy. She seems to enjoy the role of dual insider, double agent and big breastesses carrier pidgeon. Much like the TOOTHY OC headband girl, her desire to be the peacemaker is just a front for being a shite stirrer. However, I am sympathetic to her MIL situation because that old lady is a beast! Joanna/Lea’s two headed monster grates my nerves and grinds my gears. The most awful of the crew have come together to form a pretty evil monster who lives for drama. They were meant for each other. So glad Alexia is back FT and isn’t afraid to stir it up. Too bad her older son’s struggles will exploited by producers. Reminds me of Josh in OC. Hopefully weed is the worst of the story. Finally my angel w/ the burnt wings Adrianna…. gotta love it!

    • chismosa says:

      Hi Amber —- I agree with everything you said though you’re making me see Lisa in a different light …..

      I can’t believe Lenny burst out at his mother. What an AWFUL mom. Poor Lenny. I hope he’s not the only child. It was great to see him be so forthright with her. That shut her down full stop

      • Laineylainey says:

        He supported his woman. Go Lenny! go Lenny!

        • chismosa says:

          Yes I really like him

          I really like Frederique too

          • Laineylainey says:

            Me too. I like the way frederique is sooooooo in love with Adriana. It’s obvious he is crazy about her! It makes him sexy, even though he’s not someone I would see as sexy…his devotion to Adri makes him sexy!

      • Powell says:

        That was a surprise. Lenny said he was standing up for his wife, the housekeeper & driver don’t want to work when his mother is there cuz she’s mean. Ouch. I guess he had to call it as he sees it. He has good people working for him & Lisa & he doesn’t want to lose them for his mom’s bad attitude when she’s only there for 7 days.

        • chismosa says:

          Powell I’d like to see Lenny in a tie once.
          He seems to never wear one. Maybe all the men aren’t and I don’t notice but on him I notice ? Don’t know why

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Hi Chismosa! Sometimes the only way to get thru the wall is to chip at the foundation. The mother is rude and disrespectful and will only respect when LENNY puts his foot DOWN!

        • chismosa says:


          …..to the nasty mother …….


          • TexasTart says:

            Lenny & Lisa were having light-hearted conversation and Lisa poking fun at herself and the MIL hit quick and hard “why don’t you return my calls?” It was totally out of left field and I do not think it was edited between the two topics – it seemed fluid. The way Lenny came back on that was equally unexpected and probably deserved. That was a very uncomfortable at the same time a Wow! reality TV moment.

    • Powell says:

      Hi Amber. I don’t think Lisa is flip flopping but I do think Alexia is. I just wish Alexia would have stood up to them & told them she was going to Lea’s Ball as she & her husband have done yr after yr supporting her foundation & if they didn’t like it they could kick rocks. I don’t know why its so hard for most of these ladies throughout the franchise don’t just stand up for themselves if they are friends w/everyone & tell them they’re not picking sides. It’s not a hard thing to do.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Agreed re: Alexia not standing up to the wives. Business is business and you don’t miss an opportunity to network over someone elses BS! Money talks BS walks. The difference between Alexia and Lisa is that Alexia has long standing relationships w/ the women while Lisa just met them and has no allegiance.

        • chismosa says:

          Lisa getting so into both weddings is just NOT going to fly.

          And as much as its so fishy with Adri and her wedding stuff, she did mention at the reunion last year that she was getting married this spring.
          Ho could have picked another time. LA is beautiful year-round, no?
          Lisa Lisa—– ay ya yay

      • TexasTart says:

        Powell, well put. I agree with your impression of the difference between Lisa and Alexias’ handling of group situations.

  30. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Here is a link to the trailer for BH….looks like the beloved Yolanda Foster gets a little handsy with the Queens husband…we better buckle up for this season!!!


    • chismosa says:

      Whoa Jill we’re on the same wavelength 〰〰〰〰〰

    • VV says:

      I always thought there was arrogance to her. Like she felt superior to all of them because she is European (Dutch) and we New World people were not as sophisticated as she is. Yes, Lisa is European too, I know…but she doesn’t come on as stuck up as Yofo.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Yes, our sweet lil board was divided about it, but she was very arrogant and insensitive toward the Spanish speaking laborer in her home,IMO. He was a grown adult man and didn’t need to be publicly scolded by the billionaire lady. Everyone should be treated with respect…EVERYONE. he was doing his job just fine. She does have an air of superiority about her, but to be honest I also see that in Lisa, Kyle, and Kim.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I never liked Yolanda-I never knew the exact reason why but she just annoyed the crap out of me-she seems so full of herself and hell bent on telling us all how much better our lives would be if we had lemon tress…#getwise is her fave has tag…maybe she needs to #getwise!!!

          • Laineylainey says:

            Well even with all that I said,I still like Yo and my life COULD be better if I had lemon trees. I just know it! How do I do that? See the arrogance and superiority in someone, but still like them? I don’t know,…but I still like the lady. I don’t always like what they do or say, but there are so many things about her that i like too. I actually worry that David is going to hurt her, break her heart. I hope I’m wrong about that. My wart is acting up. My worry wart. Haha!

            • Powell says:

              I still like Yolanda too. Also Lisa & Brandi(we’ll see how that changes). I don’t like everything they do/say, esp Brandi.

              • Laineylainey says:

                Yeah, me too. I don’t usually like to pick teams…I need a little wiggle room in case someone does something wonderful or something bad….no absolutes. People are too changeable. Does that make me wishy washy??

          • chismosa says:

            Getwise is her tag line???

            That’s awful!!

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Chismosa not her tag line-her hash tag on twitter-she always adds #getwise to all her tweets-I want to tweet her back #getoveryourself

              • chismosa says:

                That’s what I meant whoops– hashtag

                LAME!!! That is really lame

              • Mene Seela says:


              • TexasTart says:

                LOL @ Jill’s #getoveryourself. Well folks I like Yo and don’t find her to be as arrogant as some say. Where does being over-confident collide with arrogance? I see why people say, but that doesn’t phase me about her. Really I don’t think we know enough about her and she is the most likely to be misunderstood IMO.

        • VV says:

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Right? Very interesting!!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I think when Bobby mentioned the blog, that was just the beginning of it all.
          We have also seen in RHONJ how twitter comments seep into the show…but what I find more interesting is in BH, where leaked story lines on blogs and the viewers reactions changed the direction of the players involved.

          Honestly, if the “Maurico” is a cheater story line didn’t come out..and viewers regardless if they liked Kyle or not didn’t express their disgust over it, causing Lisa and Brandi to try and play innocent over it..I don’t think they would be in a fight now.

          Brandi is mad because Lisa was able to worm her way out of the black lash..and Brandi got the heat for it.

          Not to mention, IMO Brandi acting like a drunken ass at events unrelated to the show and on twitter caused Lisa to try pull back…and now Brandi is sulking.

          • TexasTart says:

            Yes and likely…a lot of that speculation could turn out to be true. The influence is so interesting too because what we see is past history by the time it airs…so there is little changing the outcome in real time. Influence the future direction or popularity of a person though – yes.

  34. Mene Seela says:

    Does anyone recall Irina from Project Runway? Uber bitchy. Looks like she had a huge tantrum and walked off in a snit from her own fashion show….

    It’s a catwalk catastrophe!

    A production company is suing “Project Runway” designer Irina Shabayeva for sabotaging her own Fashion Week show with drama queen antics, according to a new lawsuit.

    The reality TV show’s sixth season winner, who’s dressed stars like Selena Gomez and Carrie Underwood, signed a contract with New York Fashion Shows to provide models, a venue and marketing for the Sept. 7 debut of her evening and seasonal collections, the suit says.

    But the diva designer allegedly “arrived very late” for the show, “did not cooperate with the models” and then swiped her frocks and exited the building leaving 300 guests with tickets to a second viewing in the lurch, according to the Manhattan civil suit.
    “Shabayeva, in front of guests, staff, vendors and models announced that she was going to leave and would not participate in presenting her collection at the second show,” court papers say.

    “Shabayeva abandoned the second show.”

    Fashion Week in New York ended on Sept. 12.

    The company claims Shabayeva’s behavior resulted in overtime pay for vendors and “irreparable damage” to its reputation. It also accuses the novice designer of swiping sponsor make-up boxes worth $5,00.

    “New York Fashion Shows has demanded that Shabayeva return the make-up boxes, but she has failed to do so,” the legal documents charge.

    The company is seeking unspecified damages.
    An attorney for Shabayeva said he plans to counter sue New York Fashion Show and its founder Trisha Prasad.

    Lawyer Kevin N. Malek called Prasad’s suit “superficial” and alleged that she “unilaterally” canceled the second show because she did not have models for the main event.

    “You can imagine Irina’s horror,” at the alleged mishap Schiffrin said.


  35. AZGirl says:

    First Thank you MTH for emailing me your recap of NJ.
    I can’t remember who posted (either TT or Rebecca) that Joey is afraid of Bulldog.
    I think Joey is seriously scared of this guy. Any other husband dealing with a rumor regarding his wife fidelity would confront the man in question. Instead…what does baby Joey do? confront his sister, Penny and Kim. What a wimp.
    It is so obvious that Joey is a puffed up pansy. If he was my husband I would kick him to the curb. Of course Mel will not do that because she wants a big house, a music career (roll eyes here) and her book deal which is going to bring her money, money, money. Screw her kids happiness in seeing their cousins. Ridiculous. These people are total trash.

    So back to Miami. Wasn’t it childish the way Marysol was telling Adriana “don’t talk to her (lea)”. etc “why are you answering?” “You don’t speak to her”. Very mean girl. Very junior high.

    • TexasTart says:

      VERY. I was very disappointed in the polo scene in particular last week. Why in the world doe Alexia have to choose sides?! It was for charity! It wasn’t a private dinner with Lea and husband or something.

  40. TexasTart says:

    I recorded Bethenny because Alison Sweeny was on. Several take-aways; first off the opening is way too much like Ellen. The set is very small, but not as small as Wendy, come to think of it. Too busy or colorful a decor and cheap looking foldup chairs for audience. She had two guests one was some guy talking about kissing and as you might imagine, I need no help with that, lol, so I fast forwarded. Good interview with Ali, turns out she was on the test market show, so they already did this together. The main fault Bethenny has is same as in real life, she tries to jump in (over talk) the person. She’s just so hyper, I can’t see how she translates to a mass audience – and she looks like a barbie doll. I mean what she wore and being so skinny with that short a skirt and sky high heels. She just looked unnatural. Having trouble conveying – putting my finger on her style.

    I must admit this is only one sampling and I fast forwarded though most of it. Those two short guest segments and ALL the rest of it was audience interaction….well even with the kissing guy she was running through the audience. Didn’t care for that at all..Ellen can pull that off good. Beth, not so much and looks once again unnatural to me tettering on those shoes running all through the audience. Matter of fact, audience interaction was excessive.

    Bethenny the show, did not appeal to me on several levels and I watched with an open mind…not taking into account anything else personal – just her performance as a talk show host.

    Next I’m going to check out Queen Latifah.

      Texas I agree completely. I noted the fold out padded seats she has too – I have those in my house for big events at home.

      Every single day she seems to be wearing flouncy flowy skirts, I have yet to see her in something A-line or pants. Maybe because they add volume to her lower body? It’s a very youngish look and I don’t get it. Maybe she wants to show off her legs ? They make her look even more bow-legged.
      I can’t take her voice and her very Long Island/ NY accent and me being from there I guess Im not used to someone on tv with it? So i can’t take it either. Lol
      She overtalks, interrupts, and is screaming. I think fans had tweeted her to stop screaming.

      I have to say, friends of mine who actually either are apathetic about Beth or actually started to get annoyed with her wayyyy before I did, can’t sit through the hour of hers

      Who knows how she will fare. Only Nielsen will tell us!

      Call me when she wears pants one day or a fitted dress below the knee 👗👗👖👖

        Flouncy! Now that’s a good word for it! So you agree those clothes are not flattering for her frame or perhaps her age. I am most amused that her accent doesn’t work for you, lol. For what it’s worth; I get annoyed by some southern accents, and thanks to reality TV I’ve heard some that are 10x worse than anything you hear in my neck of the woods, ha.

    VV what is FEBUS!?!?!?!

    Urban dictionary has a dirty definition
    I don’t think that’s what Caro & Co mean.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Oh yes that is exactly what they mean! I think they have used that word in their twitter wars with their army of non fans

    • VV says:

      This is old. Chris Manzo started to tweet with the hash tag #febus then ALL of them started to tweet the word. They were obviously referring to Teresa as a put diwn to her. When Tre fans caught on what they were doing, they confronted them on Twitter. I think Carolina or somebody gave an explanation that it meant:
      Fight for Everything and Believe in Urself. SURE IT DOES…because WE are stupid and we are going to believe this BS) They think they are so clever….MORONS!

      It was meant as a put down on Tre when the hate for Teresa by this family was starting to heat up.

      BTW, the tweets they made with this words didn’t have anything to do with family. They were clearly aimed at Tre. JERKS!

    HydrangaHussy – great job on the blogs. LOL about Marysol laying low. Lea not only collects celebrities, I think she collects outrageous or needy people in general. Nice to know Lisa heard you..this wanting a child and how was getting to me. More to say on that if it comes up again and then I am letting loose! Your recap was fluid and complete…you’re fair to all of them, I think. Better than I could manage, ha!
