Penny’s redacted blog re-enacted / I Dream of NeNe Part One / Gretchen’s Gretchiest Moments

Penny’s redacted blog re-enacted – by NMD

Real Housewives of New Jersey is a trainwreck.  From the Giudices facing 39 counts in a federal indictment, to the Lauritas unable to complete their bankruptcy due to (alleged) misinformation, to Richie Walike’s vile behavior off camera, the ongoing court case over the Johnny the Greek – Joey Gorga – Laurita fight – and all the issues with Melissa’s ex-boyfriends emerging from the woodwork.  You’d think that would make a great show – but none of it will air.  Instead we’re treated to some sort of fabricated, fantasy, nonsense – a repeat of last year’s story line that has Melissa the victim of rumors and everyone blaming Teresa.

This is blogger heaven, because nothing is better than dissecting the lies.  FauxR has been publishing Penny’s blogs.  Penny is claiming that her words were sliced and diced in the scene we saw on Sunday.  Her latest blog was a complete joke – almost every word redacted “on the advice of the producers. Faux got around the ridiculous “redacted” requirement by posting a fictional account of what might have happened.  Just substitute Dum Dum for Joey, Yak Yak for Mel, FHOG for RHONJ – you get the point. It’s a quick explanation of why Penny said specific words or responses – that were later spliced with other questions.  I’ve only brought some of it over (in case it disappears again) – it’s enough to get the point.  Enjoy:

      • The Whorgas asked me who invited me to Dum Dum’s sister’s party: I replied your sister did.
      • Yak Yak declared that I never assisted in raising money for The Celebrity Dapprentice: I replied that’s a lie.
      • The Whorgas told me that I was stalking FHOGS events: I replied that I have always been invited or mandated to attend.
      • Yak Yak asked what my relationship was with Dum Dum’s sister: I replied exactly the way I had at the prior FHOGS events.
      • Yak Yak made the mistake of asking me about Stripper Gate: I replied as long as Dum Dum doesn’t get crazy if I answer the question, of course you were a Dancer & there’s nothing wrong with it, I know it, you know it, your customers knew it and Dum Dum knows it.
      • Dum Dum asked me how I knew Yak Yak: Before I could reply Yak Yak responded that it wasn’t important!
      • Yak Yak said that Cafe Nero &  Yak Yak’s Dance club were not owned/managed by my relatives: I replied you’re lying.
      • Dum Dum asked if I was involved with getting Dum Dum’s sister the book signing at Cafe Nero: I replied that there were text messages confirming it.
      • The Whorgas rejected that I had Dum Dum’s sister’s telephone numbers: I replied do you want me to show you and I showed them my phone, proof and said am I lying.
      • Yak Yak asked me about rumors concerning Clyde and cheating scandals: I replied it wasn’t me and I’m not taking the bullet for everything.
      • Dum Dum asked me about his sister’s relationship with Zippy D: I replied I have no idea.
      • Dum Dum told me that someone told my husband that Yak Yak didn’t go see his father in the hospital: I replied go talk to my husband because I have no idea.
      • The Whorgas wanted to know how Yak Yak’s lover’s name came up during a party: I replied ______ asked if I knew him [____ is not Dum Dum’s sister].
      • Yak Yak asked whether Dum Dum’s sister was spreading rumors: I replied your sister in law told me to squash them <— you can hear me say this.
      • When Yak Yak asked if Zippy D was involved in spreading rumors: I replied that’s why Dum Dum’s sister wanted me to confront Dum Dum about who was really spreading the rumors.
      • The Whorgas repeatedly wanted me to say that Dum Dum’s sister was pulling my strings: I replied no one pulls my strings and I was asked to confront Dum Dum to confirm the fact that no one pulls my strings.
      • Yak Yak threw some low blows claiming that Dum Dum’s sister made negative comments about my extended family: I replied that I would have to talk to Dum Dum’s sister about that because it looked to me like Yak Yak was baiting me.”

Best of all – this is starting to hit the main press.  Here’s one article that covers it – Read Here.  With the Manzos getting a spinoff – we can finally expect some major cast changes if this show even returns.  Puh leeze.


I Dream of NeNe Part 1 by NMD

Part one of NeNe’s wedding special wasn’t about NeNe’s wedding, it was about NeNe’s MARRIAGE and her attempt to fix the relationships that swirl around her and her extended family.  NeNe has lived life in the spotlight for many years now, and is achieving her dreams – at least on the surface.  In the background, her relationship with her father, Curtis, fell apart after she learned (on national TV) that he wasn’t her biological dad.  Her step kids think she’s the step mom from hell (daddy married a stripper and left mommy) and have no relationship with her or her sons, Gregg is a financial and emotional mess, and Bryson (her oldest son) has arrested development and she worries if he’ll be there for his baby and baby mama.

The show is intriguing. It’s like peeling the layers away from NeNe and Gregg to truly understand the complexities of their relationship.  NeNe seems to have an innate sense of what viewers need to see to be interested – and she delivers.  She’s in a good place, and when NeNe is happy and laughing, it’s infectious.  She’s also open and vulnerable.  We all know that these Bravolebrities deal with a huge and vocal fan base – haters and supporters – and have to be tough to survive.  NeNe survives by staying one step ahead.  “I was a stripper – so what?  Gregg had financial issues – so what?”

Gregg and NeNe start the show off by Gregg moving his clothes back into NeNe’s closet. It’s larger than my bedroom, and NeNe flinches at the thought of Gregg taking a section.  “I don’t want to go back into the basement” he says in a sad voice, and she agrees to give him a little space.  That sets the stage for a series of negotiations as they move their relationship forward.

Before that happens, they take us back to their first wedding, 17 years ago.  NeNe reads the invitation, Gregg finds her dress and veil, and they watch a clip of their wedding.  They laugh at themselves, and how far they’ve come.  The NeNe who got married to Gregg 17 years ago was a different person.  Their wedding vows were completed by a very long and tongalicious kiss.  “Daddy married a stripper.”  Today NeNe is clear that she loves Gregg – that he is her everything.  17 years ago Gregg’s financial success was part of his attraction.

The couple travel to Athens, GA where they drive by the church where they were married.  They visit with NeNe’s aunt and god-mother, and talk about how even in the midst of their divorce, Gregg knew he’d get his family back.  Another trip down family memory lane as NeNe has lunch with an uncle and calls her dad on her uncle’s phone to invite him to the weddings.  Curtis is no longer taking her calls, but he agrees to come to the ATL.

NeNe rehashes the divorce with her attorney as she discusses a prenup.  Gregg has filed for bankruptcy (which is thought to be one of the main reasons for their divorce – to discharge his debt) and she wants to protect her assets.  Smart lady, however I do feel for their creditors since he went into debt to launch her career.

She goes furniture shopping with Bryson, and voices over that she’ll continue to financially support him because he’s 23.  He’s on crutches because he ran his car into a tree, and she gives him a lecture on driving.  He tries to protest that he doesn’t need a lecture, but since she’s buying him furniture – he has to listen to her.  I sort of get the feeling she’s given up on him, but at least he’s staying out of jail.

She convinces Gregg to go to pre-marriage counseling.  Gregg is old school and thinks they should just go to church, and is very resistant to the counseling.  Antagonistic even.  NeNe insists he address his relationship with his 5 previous kids before they move on.  Previews show one of his kids yelling at NeNe.  I think that son has been vocal in the tabloids. Previews also show a lot of drama between the 12 bridesmaids.  I wonder if the drama with Nene’s sisters will also air.

NeNe’s wedding special is like soul food – deep and satisfying.  Compare it to Tamra’s – which was more like cotton candy.  Pretty but fluffy, sickly sweet and hard to finish.  NeNe is the highest paid of the housewives, and with this special she shows us why.


Gretchen’s Gretchiest Moments

Real Housewives of Orange County – Season 8

By Stars99

Note:  Looking back at this last season of RHOC, I was surprised that Gretchen was the one who provided us with arguably some very hysterical moments. Unfortunately, we were most likely laughing at her and not with her.  Her weird perspectives on life as well as her “Gretchenisms” continue to make me guffaw every time I think about them.  In fact, I often find myself quoting her.  I do this so often that I’m semi-nervous that I’m going to blurt out a “Gretchenism” at a most inopportune time and I’m reasonably afraid that I may actually convince people that I’m a dimwit instead of just quoting one.  Wait, perhaps that does, indeed, make me a dimwit… lol.  Well, we all know I make more than my share of errors… I’ve also included a couple of quotes from her castmates that still make me die laughing as well as some Gretchen-centric situations that I still find hilarious. I didn’t do it in the usual “Top 10” format, cuz well, there are way more than 10 and I just couldn’t choose… lol.

“Why do they call it a clam bake?” – During Heather’s “Clam Bake” Gretchen wonders aloud why anyone would name a dinner like this a “clam bake.” After all, as her rock solid reasoning concludes, when she cooks a ham she doesn’t call it a “ham off.”  Oh wait… Was she trying to be funny? It’s hard to tell, what with that wind tunnel in between her ears and all… By the way, if her logic was solid or consistent in any way… She probably would have reasoned that when she cooks a ham that she doesn’t call it a “ham bake.”  But, as Vicky keeps reminding us… You just can’t fix stupid.

“You’ve had a baby?” – Early in the season, at Tamra’s dinner from heck at CUT Fitness, Vicki was talking about how excited she was to have a baby (Briana had recently given birth to baby boy, Troy).  Gretchen cackles to Vicki,“You’ve had a baby?”  No dimwad, she didn’t have a baby, but Vicki’s a new grandmother and her family has a new baby.  Who says this crap?  Gretchen wants immediate clarification if Vicki is insinuating that she actually had a baby.  Ummm… no… there’s a new baby in their family, you idiot.

Gretchen is shocked at the Rolls“Happy Birthday, Gretchen… Here’s a bill!” – For Gretchen’s birthday, Slade took her to a nice hotel in San Diego for a little getaway. As they wait for their car at the valet stand, a brand spankin’ new white Rolls Royce drives up with a honkin’ bow on the top.  Slade tells Gretchen that it’s “her new car.”  Gretchen wants to know who bought this for her? The rest of us wondered, too, I mean – Aren’t they financially strapped?  Gretchen and Slade both end up looking like gooberheads because Gretchen doesn’t actually keep the car because she was going to have to make the payments on it.  They genuinely confused me because something wrapped in a bow and presented as a “gift” on a birthday, generally implies giving – Not saddling additional debt onto the birthday girl, no?  Gretchen does end up helping to design a car for Rolls Royce as part of a promotion in 2013, but it kind of makes one question Rolls Royce’s marketing savvy, no?

Gretchen“Easy Access” – Gretchen and Slade are in a medical waiting room and Gretchen tells Slade that she has worn a skirt,“for easy access.”  Now, I’m sure Slade hoped she meant for him (and we all throw up a little in our mouth) – but sadly for him, no – it was for the Fertility Specialist.

“Porta Vallarta” (Not Puerto…)  They’re going on a trip to “Puerto Vallarta” and I know that you’ll be surprised to know that Gretchen totally massacres the pronunciation of it.  Seriously, if you’ve lived in Southern California for any length of time at all, you pick up some basic fundamentals of Spanish language pronunciation.  I’m not saying you need to have a perfect accent… but please, just don’t say, “Porta” when it’s “Puerto”… Seriously, it just makes you look ignorant.
“Gretchen is a Fashion Icon” – When buying bikinis, Heather prefers more coverage while Gretchen believes that sometimes when you have too much coverage on the butt it actually makes your butt look bigger.  Gretchen thinks she knows best because after all – she IS in the fashion industry because she designs handbags.

“He banged her once…” – Gretchen clues us in that Lauri used to date Slade and then, in a feeble attempt to minimize it, says cavalierly, “He banged her once, twice or three times… I don’t know.”  I’m not sure if Gretchen was trying to use the kind of phraseology that she thinks a guy would use or what – but it really was quite weird.  Way to keep it classy, Gretch!

“Clueless, Party of 1” – The girls are taking a limo into Los Angeles (an hour or so away) to go wedding dress shopping with Tamra.  Gretchen gets into the limo wearing a short, bright red trench coat.  We only find out later that she doesn’t have clothes on underneath… that evidently it’s some sort of a fashion statement.  Then all of the sudden, Lydia says, “Whoa, whoa” and points out the fact that Gretchen is wearing what looks like to be a honkin’ engagement ring.  Gretchen corrects her, “Oh, this is just my ring from Jeff that I wear once in a while. It’s such a beautiful ring.”  In her talking head interview, Vicki rants, “Why is Gretchen wearing Jeff’s engagement ring at Tamra’s wedding dress shopping day? We’ve never seen you wear this ring in the last two years and suddenly you’re wearing it now?”  Vicki just can’t get over the fact that it’s Tamra’s day and what the heck is Gretchen doing?

Gretchen arguing stupid“Perhaps Gretchen should eat some Maybelline” – In one of the funniest statements Alexis has ever made, she says of Gretchen, “I just wish sometimes that Gretchen would eat some of her own make-up so she could become pretty on the inside again.”

“Manamanous” – Vicki explains to the other housewives that she hasn’t dated but she knows that Brooks has been dating.  Gretchen says, “So you didn’t have an agreement to be ‘manamanous?’”  (Okay, in full disclosure… it could be construed that Gretchen pronounced it “monogamous” – but my hubster and I both listened to it over and over again… then checked how “closed captioning” captured it – and they replaced that word with “nonrestrictive” and since we prefer to point and laugh, and also since Gretchen never deserves the benefit of the doubt, we maintain that she said“manamanous.”)  Somewhere in the night, Stars starts to inexplicably sing a song with the Muppets, “Mah na mah na…”

“Floundering on Philandering” –  Gretchen, because after all she is a slime in every sense of the word, says in her talking head that she’s not surprised that Brooks may be out “flandering” on Vicki because for all that time Vicki was“flandering” on Donn…   and that Vicki was “flandering” on Brooks with that guy in Cabo.  Gretchen says, “You know, Karma is a bitch, isn’t it, Vicki?”  Wow… here and I didn’t think Gretchen even knew any 3 syllable words (should be 4 syllables if she would correctly pronounce “philandering”) much less, to be able to use them in a sentence.  She even uses the same word three different times for emPHAsis… lol…

“Nice Canoe, Eh?” – As they arrive at the hotel in Whistler, Canada, Gretchen thinks it feels like they’re in a winter wonderland and says, “The snow is perfectly drizzling out of the sky… We walk into this lobby and this fun canoe… Wait…Was it a canoe? What was that?”  Well, Gretchen honey, most of the world would call it a “bobsled”… Heck, even people who live in sunny Jamaica know enough to call it a “bobsled.”  And by the way, it’s rain that drizzles… Snow falls, wafts, or blankets the ground.

“Do you know a little about Canada?” – While in Whistler, Gretchen asks Greg (You know, Lydia’s friend who actually has lived in Vancouver, Canada for many years), “So, you know a little about Canada?”  Everyone is just jaw dropping flabbergasted.  Gratuitous jokes ensue.

“Gretchen Looks like a Q-Tip” – In Whistler, Vicki takes one look at Gretchen in her circa 70s white jumpsuit ski outfit and says, “Who dresses like that?”  She tells Gretchen that she looks like a Q-Tip and that she wants to use Gretchen’s hat as an actual Q-Tip.  Vicki then begins rub her ear against Gretchen’s hat.

“Don’t Personify Onto Me” – Vicki and Gretchen are arguing about things that happened years ago.  In her talking head, Gretchen says of Vicki, “Listen you crazy bitch, stop acting like you’re the one that’s “Little Miss Perfect” and stop trying to “personify” onto me…” Okay, who gave Gretchen a “Word of the Day” calendar for Christmas?  Here’s the thing Gretchen, if you don’t know the actual meaning of a word you have no hope of correctly using it in a sentence.

“Indiscrepancies vs. Indiscretions x 3” – Situation 1:  Gretchen asks her mom, “Do you remember Lauri who used to hang out with the group?”  Gretchen then proceeds to tell her Mom about how Lauri divulged some very interesting information about Vicki to her.  She said that Lauri told her some of Vicki’s “indiscrepancies” (Nope, that’s not a typo – that’s what Gretchen actually said) with a lot of men and her infidelity with Donn.

Situation 2:  Vicki said that it’s true that she had a lot to say about it just like Tamra.  Gretchen and Tamra assure Vicki that they have worked out their differences but Vicki seems doubtful of that fact.  Gretchen then tries to actually pretend to be able to put together a coherent sentence (but don’t worry boys and girls she doesn’t succeed), “I feel like it’s a little “ironic”… that at this time, when we’ve now divulged your “indiscrepancies….”  Gretchen, dagnabit, it’s “indiscretions” not “indiscrepancies!” Come on…

Situation 3:   On the mountain at Whistler after they skied, Lauri and Gretchen are talking about Vicki’s infidelities. Lauri is trying to skate on the technicality that she never actually said that Vicki had sex.  Gretchen fires back at Lauri that it’s what she thought Lauri was inferring when she said that Vicki is guilty of lots of “indiscrepancies.”  Lauri calmly corrects Gretchen, “Indiscretions.”  We all just sadly shake our head.

“Tongue on mouth” – Vicki playfully tells everyone to put their tongue on the ice.  She pretends to do it and so does Lydia.  Well, actually Lydia does it and says it kind of sticks.  Then, in this week’s segment of “I Kid You Not”, Tamra puts her tongue solidly on the ice and gets stuck.  I mean really stuck.  It’s like she’s never seen, “A Christmas Story, My Best Friend’s Wedding, or Dumb and Dumber.”  It’s hilarious… but ouchie!  They have to pour liquid over her tongue to get it to release.  Gretchen stupidly asks, “Is your tongue still on your mouth?”  No, Gretchen… she lost it in the ice room.  Duh.

Gretchen (1)“Animosity” – During the reunion, Andy brought up the fact that Gretchen said in her blog she thought it was obvious that Vicki was purposefully trying to put a wedge in Gretchen’s relationship with Tamra.  Gretchen said that it was in Mexico when Vicki had said, “My plan worked” that it showed Gretchen that Vicki had intent, “To hurt me or try to put a wedge between us or try to create some sort of, ‘anim… amun…’”… And while Gretchen stares off into space searching the heavens for the correct word, everyone on both couches, in unison, supplies the word, “animosity.”  Whew… it really does take a village to raise a village idiot.

“Condenscending” – Heather starts to clarify the circumstances surrounding her text message that Gretchen had previously called, “So condensending”… Then Her Royal Heatherness, in a very patronizing way, corrects Gretchen that she’s sure she meant, “Condescending” and then Gretchen launches into how Heather thinks she’s better than everyone else.  Well, she kinda does… but that’s not the point… lol!

“Sunthin” – Gretchen has so much trouble pronouncing “something” that Andy directly asks her about it.  She can’t for the life of her remember how she mispronounces it… but she does it ALL the time and Andy keeps receiving messages about it.

And my favorite “Gretchenism” of them all:  “Wrath of FURRY” – Gretchen actually says, “Vicki pissed off the wrong girl.  I want to unleash a wrath of FURRY on this bitch.”  (At this point, Stars is laffing so hard she can’t even see straight… picturing that big old “wrath of furry” [no, not “fury” – She actually said “furry”] that Gretchen is gonna unleash… omg..omg…omg)… This word or its’ derivations have taken on a life of their own… For me, “Don’t infurryate me” and “That’s infurryating to me” are now a permanent part of my regular vocabulary…

Please feel free to add to this living list of “Gretchenisms.”  I can’t wait until next season to see what else is in store for us!

  1. Johnny tweet

    John Karagiorgis ‏@JohnnyTheGrk 1m
    Keep this in mind:
    Before going anywhere, Beevis & Butthead came to my place to discuss how & what to say. I got suckered.

  2. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. “Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike. What day is it? It’s hump dayyyy!” 🙂 Have a great day.

  3. not THAT Jill says:

    Starzy I love it!!!
    I will add one more
    Heather is the EPI-TONE of class…

    • Stars99 says:

      Omg… Jill… I cannot believe i forgot that one! That was hysterical!

    • Stars99 says:

      Oh… I know why… It was included when they aired the “Lost Footage” show… and was the single reason why I was sad I didn’t blog that particular show… lolol… Wasn’t that a crack-up!

    • Shiny says:

      Starz — fabulous compilation of Gretchen-speak.

      Most housewives are identifiable by odd phrases or sentences they spoke on camera, but only Gretchen provides us with so many one-word puzzlers.

  4. Uh oh Brandi – backlash already?

    Brandi Glanville ‏@BrandiGlanville 1h
    For all of u speculating about the show why don’t u just wait and watch it before u start attacking people about anything!!!

    • not THAT Jill says:

      She’s just made that people are turning on her-if everyone was talking trash about Kyle she would be fine with it!!!

      • plainviewsue says:

        Jill, I think you’re gonna have a lot more allies this season!! While I still do not like Kyle, I have a feeling that I will be leaving the Brandi camp.

        I didn’t agree with a bunch of stuff that Brandi has said and done, but at the time, I really did find her so refreshing. Esp at the season two reunion. But now taking on the Queen of BH, the one person who was there for her, who supported her against Adrienne and others??? No way. In the preview that you can see on line on Echannel, Brandi brings up chess & says to Lisa you’ve been checkmated bitch. She knows how hurt she was when Kyle said that being friends with her was like playing chess with Bobby Fisher. Lisa is so upset she’s smoking a cigarette!

        Then there is a scene where Kim is yelling at Ken.

        Teresa and Lisa are both the stars of their franchise, and their fellow cast members cannot stand it.

        Same story, different city.

        • missusmc says:

          I really liked Brandi in the beginning, too. I wonder if part of her appeal was that she was the underdog of sorts, with the affair and everything, and being ganged up on by the richards sisters? Or maybe it was just the fact that she was the new girl and we didnt know much about her? (Which is why I hesitate to like Lydia from the OC too much.) or by comparison to Dana, she looked better? I think, though, this “fame” has gotten to her head and she’s more ballsy than ever, plus she’s being followed more so her bad behavior is everywhere now. It makes me sad, because she , like Bethenny, seemed to honest and genuine, but the more I found out, it just seemed like they were bratty mean girls who act out for attention.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Hi PVSue, you think she’s jumped on the jelly train? I’m waiting for the show to air. It should be good!!!

          • plainviewsue says:

            I think so. I think the fact that Brandi was so popular and there was so much animosity against Leann & Eddie (yes, Gretchen…animosity!!) her head swelled up along with her ego.

        • not THAT Jill says:

          Sue -I just posted the link to the preview below…for some reason I think Lisa is a smoker…I think I read that somewhere??

          • plainviewsue says:

            The preview did show her with a cigarette. Rarely do they ever show any of the women smoking. I remember last season we saw Sonya smoking on the boat in St. Barts.

        • VV says:

          PSV, I think Brandi was telling Lisa a story when she made the comment about check mate and Editing made it sound like Brandi was Saying it to Lisa. The interaction they were having didn’t give me the impression they were fighting.

          • plainviewsue says:

            I would be really sad if Lisa and Brandi’s friendship was over. I felt it was a real friendship, lots of fun. Lisa really went to the wall to defend Brandi. Brandi’s like Jacqueline. Tweets non stop & its working against her. We’ll have to watch what happens!!!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        well….duh?! But aren’t they (Kyle and Brandi) best buds now? LOL!!! pre-watch speculation by Lainey.

    • T-Rex says:

      Well at least you know she reads the Blogs. That “tired” Bravo HW Line of “wait and watch” crap is as old and annoying as the “I just wanted an apology(most times after numerous apologies have been made, but need to stir up drama at public events”). I was on the BrandSTFU bandwagon last year, but after some of the antics of her public drunkenness, her bits and pieces always falling out of her clothing, etc. I am not sure I am going to see her in the same light I fear. I don’t believe for one hot second that LisaV would feed the trolls of the press with anything derogatory on any of her castmates, so to me if there is a take-down afoot, BrandiSTFU by her tweets has chosen the wrong side. If BrandiSTFU brings up again this season, her hurt that LisaV hired a good employee that happened to schtupp ManCandyEddy almost 7 years ago, I am going to hurl something at the TV

    • LaineyLainey says:

      That’s kinda what I was thinking! Watch first, then bash. She’s gotten a pre-watch bash. Or a pre-bash pre-watch bash fest based on ??? tweets. right?

      • not THAT Jill says:

        The thing about all of this is-IF blah blah Brandi would STFU (like the Queen) then there would be nothing to say-BUT she always has to engage…she needs to tell herself to STFU!!!!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          She would be kinda boring if she did that. Instead she gives us food for fodder.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            I don’t think the other BH HWs are boring-I just think they know when to shut up-it’s a very important thing to know!!!

            • T-Rex says:

              Jnntj, EXACTLY, that’s why she has the new moniker, she has diarrhea of the TWEET! She really needs to just STOP! She wants to be the CENTER of attention, be that good or bad, to her attention is attention. I gave her a huge pass last season because it was “refreshing” to watch her, now it’s just a drunken, slutty, mess of a human being, that is turning on someone that had her back the last season.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I would be utterly bored if everyone including Brandi STFU. It’s those moments of not SHUTTINGTFU that make these shows interesting. Stupid, yes? Annoying, yes? But please don’t STFU or there will be no show.

              If Kyle had STFU in that limo,…boring!! If Kyle and Kim had STFU at game night, BORING!! If…if…if…I am not saying only BRANDI shouldn’t STFU, I don’t think anyone should. Bad for business.

              • missusmc says:

                I don’t want Brandi to STFU, but I do want her to clean up her mouth a bit. She gets Jerry Springer pretty fast, and it’s off putting. I don’t want to silence her or for her to even leave the show.. I just want her to present herself in a more dignified, intelligent manner. And maybe learn impulse control. She just can’t help herself, I know, but shed gain more sympathy if she could take a second or two to breathe and think things through before she runs her mouth (or tweets). She’s very immature in that manner.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  HI missusmc, that’s an entirely different matter. Yes, Ladylike behavior from Brandi would be most welcome. ITA

              • not THAT Jill says:

                Lainey-I’m not talking about on the show-I’m talking about now!!!!! Everyone else is keeping quiet except the attention lover and apparent trouble maker!!!!!!

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  DANG IT! There I go again, too literal. Plus sometimes I don’t let myself cogitate before commenting. Thanks for explaining. LOL!!! Yes, the tweeting is very leading and it’s NOT HELPING her win fans. But sometimes I wonder if she even cares. She seems to have a self-destructive bent.

  5. plainviewsue says:

    Thanks you Stars for your gift of Gretchenisms!!!! I truly laughed out loud.

    Faux’s blog on Penny was hysterical. I saw it yesterday. I think we all just need to accept bravo shows as fiction as cast members as actors & call it a day!

    MeGo update. Her book is being trashed on amazon. I know that people say well it must be only Teresa supporters. But where are Melissa supporters. Out of the few five star reviews, one was verified as being her sister Lysa. It looks like Melissa also gave herself a five star review. Where are her fans??????????????????????????/

    Yesterday was the first book signing, and as of yet, I have seen no pictures tweeted at all. After one of Teresa’s, not only does she tweet pics out, but so do fans that are retweeted.

    She was on the Today show with Hoda and Kathy Lee. It said in the description actress Melissa George! Should of just said Teresa’s SIL. She dressed rather matronly (for her). I liked how she looked. Better than the short short shorts. The interview was short & gross. She spoke of how women don’t poop (in other words, shut the door), how she makes sure she takes care of herself so her husband will want to come home (nice dig at her mother) and other nonsense. Was asked about Teresa. Said they’re in a better place (yawn) and when asked about the charges against Teresa, did take the high road and said we’re there for them or something to that effect.

    The Gretchenisms were hilarious! I can’t be mad at her for saying sunthing, because my beloved phoebe on Friends did the same thing, and Lisa kudrow is an intelligent woman. So I’ll chalk that up to a speech impediment of sorts. The rest? That can be attributed to her stupidity. I so hope she doesn’t return next season. She offers nothing good and the rest of the ladies were actually enjoyable this season. If she returns, I’ll be furryous!

    Good Morning everyone!

    Thanks NMD!!! I love every word regarding DumDum and YakYak!!!! Haa! Juicy stuff! Thank for keeping us well informed!

    Happens that I liked I dream of Nene! Go figure…

  9. not THAT Jill says:

    ATL starts November 3rd and BH starts November 5th
    BH has 2 new HWs Joyce and Carlton
    ATL has the same old crew as last year…I was hoping for a Marlo return-she would be good against Gone With the Wind fabulous Kenya!!

    • chismosa says:

      BOTH starting the same week.
      Unbelievable. And those are high- rated franchises of HWS, right?

      Bravo slow the effffff down ……… Simmmmah

    • chismosa says:

      Sorry forgot to add— Carlton is a woman’s name ???

      Isn’t he from the Fresh prince of Bel Air? The one who danced ?

      • missusmc says:

        It is! Maybe this Carlton will do the Carlton dance? And rich people tend to name their daughters traditional boy names. It’s becoming trendier for us “regular folk.” It makes it hard for those of us with boys, because the girls are taking all their names!

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Carlton is indeed a woman -Carlton Gebbia-I think she is a designer? And I think she is British?

        • chismosa says:

          Thanks missusmc and Ash —

          I’m not a fan of last names as first names.
          Carlton… They’ll probably call her Carly.
          Another Brit?? I thought Lisa shall be the one and only 👑👑👸

    • cusi77 says:

      I watched last night the last Episode of AT Season 5… How bad Kenya behaved at “her” party… Wow, throwing out one of her cast mates for not looking ridiculous, but fabulous! I am pretty sure that was the reason she asked everyone to be dressed in a way she would be the only one showing her figure… Frankly Cynthia was all covered up and Kandy just like bad choice of clothes.

      Do you know how many episodes to watch Nene re marrying her ex?

    • LaineyLainey says:

      from one extreme to the other – BH and Atl…and then you’ve got VDPrules to round things up.

    • BB says:

      I thought BH started Nov 4th.

    • plainviewsue says:

      It seems like years since NY was on.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        It does seem that way Sue-I miss Ramona!! I believe they just finished filming so now they have fake story lines to create and editing to go with whatever crap they want us to believe this time!!!

      • chismosa says:

        Thank you that’s what I feel too Sue!

        • plainviewsue says:

          LOL Jill. So true. It’s amazing that Atlanta, Miami and now Beverly Hills are all starting up new seasons before NY. I don’t watch Atlanta or Miami, so when NJ is done, I might actually have a reprieve of HW’s!

          The ninety minute finale of RHONJ is on September 29th. NINETY MINUTES! Which is also the premieres of Once Upon A Time, Revenge, Good Wife and Homeland!! And I have to DVR the finale of Breaking Bad for my sons.

          Thank goodness for DVR’s and on demand!!!!

  10. chismosa says:

    Hi all- I’m getting a headache reading the code so I’ll try again later. I need an index next to me. I don’t get who Clyde is. I’ll try again later.

    I feel so out of it — I don’t watch BH! I’ll be out of the loop 😩😩😩😭😭😪

    At least I’ll have shahs coming soon. And on people today there was something about them going to the border of Iran on a trip. Really ????
    Blech Diamond water blech asssssa is probably going to milk her “refugee” status for all its worth since I believe she is the only one born there. 😴😴😷
    I can’t believe she is waiting and waiting until this next season for her 💎💎💎water to come out. It’s been AGES
    better than black water though

    Have a good Wednesday. I have TV to catch up on.
    I hope Nene was good didnt watch yet but the first look satisfied me.

    • VV says:

      Clyde is BullDog.

      I think what is most revealing about this is that all those direct accusations at Teresa show its all fabricated by Editing. So, when people say “You can hear Penny mouth the words” Now we know in what context.
      Another things is the extent to which Melissa Gorga, Joey and the rest of them go to LIE to us viewers knowing full well is BS.

      DISCLAIMER: By people, I mean Everybody but Chianina and sasha.

      • chismosa says:

        VV it’s so ridiculous to see the WATERFORD crystal clear manipulation of words not matching lips.
        That’s why it was refreshing as I think Tarts pointed out, to see the conversation between Lenny and his mother on Miami.
        That seemed ORGANIC 🌱🌾🌴🍃🌵

      • plainviewsue says:

        VV, I believe that Clyde is Caroline. The reason I say that is cos originally it said Clown and then it was switched to Clyde. My guess is cos Clown is too close to Caroline??

        • VV says:

          I have to go back and read again. I know the blog was updated several times yesterday. I thought it was Clyde because of the cheating rumors and used the nane Vlyde as in Clyde the Bulldog.

      • Sasha says:

        VV, some days I am one of the people too.

        Jersey is past reality to me. Most of them are playing their roles and acting for the camera.

        I’ll admit that I may miss a lot because I don’t always read all the extra information that is out there and rarely go to twitter.

        Maybe that’s why I like everyone on the show and it’s why I’m never mad at them.

        • chismosa says:

          Sasha all my friends who don’t do the blogs and tweets also are not as infuriated or as impassioned as we all are

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Hi Chismosa. I wonder how Asshat and the MustachioedMenace will behave next season? They were just whore-ibble towards Mercedes and GiGi. as they definitely had S2-itis. Let’s see if public opinion doused their supersized egos or if Assa will tone it down for sales of her water w/ the itsy bitsy teeny tiny diamond in it. Henceforth it shall be called DiamondDustWater.

      • chismosa says:

        Totally with you Amber. I’m upset to hear that MJ may have forgiven Reza 👨
        I hope it’s not for the cameras

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          UGGHHH! That is a testament to her forgiving heart and love for the disgusting Reza. Also her co-dependant, enabling history at the hands of her mother can explain it as well.

          • chismosa says:


            Ooooh! but I’m liking what it says on people that Reza and Mike are having issues with their business
            Serves Reza right. Mike needs to see the light about him.

  11. Rebecca says:

    Bravo’s RH recipe:

    1 – Take a bunch of women who know of each other, and make them go on a couple of trips together.

    2 – Note which one doesn’t turn the audiance off the most.

    3 – Dig up some past indiscretions (right Gretchen?) and have your people link them to social media.

    4 – Encourage the bitter, jealous harpies to try to take down the popular HW, by helping promote a book or spin-off show.

    5 – Rinse and repeat.

    Stars, funny, funny, the Epitone of funny!!

    I didn’t watch Nene, I am boycotting because I really believe it was all to dodge the creditors….so maybe someday in reruns but it just disappoints me….

    I think I am done with NJ, I didn’t watch last season and I don’t know why I did this season….

    First thing this morning I had to figure out what was wrong with my wireless, turns out my network adapter was disabled. Impressed that I was able to figure it out and get it working without coffee….but why the hell would it become disabled??

            Hi rabblerouser and chismosa, thanks for the reply the other day. I just saw it. I stalk this board almost everyday and was sickened how some other bloggers tried to mess with lynn while not knowing her or y’all at all. Of course, I got a shitload to say, but don’t want to argue with anyone. Yet, I think I take more than I give by coming here everyday and saying nothing…shit I haven’t contributed anything. I do want everyone to know (and I’m probably not alone) that us silent stalkers do appreciate your efforts stars, Mel, nomoredrama, etc. because it takes a lot of effort what you do and I enjoy all of it immensely.

      WHOA! Yep, BrandiSTFU you can tweet for us to “watch what happens” all you want, but just from that clip, seeing you drunk and falling all over the place, kissing other women(we know she has had 3-ways before, so she has had sex with other women), watching you curse and doing the obvious takedown of your supposed BFF from last season. You know the woman who defended you, gave you a shoulder to cry on, stuck up for you, yeah and now you call her the manipulator. BrandiSTFU you are one, out of control, drunk ass, shit-stirring, piece of crap, IMO. I know the season hasn’t aired, but from what has been shown already, no way you crawling out of the abyss you have lowered yourself into. It’s obvious I will also still be hating on the Witchard sisters, they are still the piece of crap folks they have been since season one. Got to reserve opinion on the newbies until we see them.

    • MelTheHound says:

      I just can’t with these housewives anymore.. Really Brandi? Won’t watch, WON’T WATCH, Nope, Can’t make me watch.. As much as I appreciate a good shot, that shot of her hooha did me in with her and therefore, RHOBH. Have some self respect and show some class, woman.

        Haha… I saw 30 seconds total (30 seconds too long) of the opening to Bethenny’s talk show the other day before I realized what mess I had wandered into… shimmy shaking in her a-line mini skirt on the stairs with her audience a la Ellen. Even her logo looks like Ellen’s.

          Ps on my cable it seems the next day reruns the previous day’s show on the secondary channel she’s on. In case anyone misses a shimmy shake.

    Hello All. Great blogs as usual.

    W/ PennyDrag….. I JUST CAN’T!!! She is utterly, or udderly for the lying cow that she is, frigging UNBELIEVE-FABLE!!! She can’t seem to keep her lies or cheap ass ponytail straight! BTW if she tried to do my hair wearing that monstrosity on her head, she’ll be wearing 3 shoes… two on her feet and one in her arse! Who trusts someone to do a good job when their own hair leaves alot to be desired? I feel as if she’s been waffling and flipflopping to both sides for cameratime and will say and deny WHATEVER she feels will benefit her at that moment. BRAVO does edit but that old sea hag was definitely throwing Tre under the bus. She’s probably feeling the heat from fans and is trying to rewrite her role in this cheap ass saga. Next week we’ll SEE how BRAVO edits the confrontation. Poor SyntheticHaPenny… sold herself cheap like her hair piece and always an extra, never the friend of or the HW.

    As for NeNe and her show, this is going to be a whopper. ITA that NeNe gives us everything we want, drama, laughs and excitement. I wondered how she was going to be able to make her wedding to dull Greg exciting but my ‘fears’, LOL, have been assuaged. The show is going to bring it and Greg is going to lose it!! I”m loving it! She’s got a huge wedding party w/ other reality wives in it so that will be drama in itself. Greg’s kids seem to really resent NeNe and may have cause IF she was the reason for their parents break-up. NOT, if he was already separated and dating prior to subsequently divorcing and marrying NeNe. Guess we’ll find out all the salacious details soon enough.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Hi Amber…Real Wife

      “Greg’s kids seem to really resent NeNe and may have cause IF she was the reason for their parents break-up. NOT, if he was already separated and dating prior to subsequently divorcing and marrying NeNe.”.

      I kind of have to disagree, even if NeNe wasn’t a part in the break of their parents marriage, she could have still been a step monster, She might be one of those women who bitched and complained every time her husband had to write a check for child support or spent time with his kids from his first marriage. She might have made them feel unwelcome in the home.

      Of course, it’s also possible they just weren’t ready and willing to see their dad move on.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        You could be right if she was a step monster and knowing NeNe that could have been possible. Also when some men move on they ‘forget’ their children mentally and financially, of their own accord or by prompting from the new wife. That should speak volumes about the men more so than the new wife. With NeNe I was thinking along the lines of was she the mistress/homewrecker who destroyed the marriage vs being the next in a long line of women that he chose to wife up. Some men will remain married while living single and only ask for a divorce when they’re ready to remarry. That limbo can give spouses and children hope for a reconciliation even when there’s not a chance in hell leaving angry children to become bitter adults..

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Oh yes, there are ton of possibilities.

          I also agree that ultimately that its the father who does bare the responsibility; and if they handle the situation well it would help stifle any resentment the other children feel.

      • T-Rex says:

        According to reports, Nene was not the reason for the divorce, but Gregg was going to the strip club NeNe worked at during the divorce. From all accounts, Gregg’s “wandering eye” led to the demise of his first marriage, but not due to NeNe. Some of the kids said that once Gregg started seeing NeNe she basically “moved in” with him right away, seeing those dollar signs that Gregg had at the time. I guess some of the children were living with Gregg full time, but once NeNe moved in, they were promptly shipped back to their mother, and Gregg kept the two families apart. So, while I believe that NeNe, 19 years ago, was a gold-digging, stripper who wanted a better life for herself and her small child, and Mr. Moneybags Gregg was her ticket out, he was part of the problem, maybe he didn’t want a stripper around his kids. I believe that she did fall in love with him along the way, which is why they are still together. While you can sort of blame NeNe, I think 90% of the issues with Gregg’s children are because of Gregg. I also believe the divorce was done solely to keep their finances in tact while Gregg went bankrupt and so NeNe could keep her earnings.

    • Rebecca says:

      What are talking about specifically? Penny’s story hasn’t changed. She hasn’t appeared to throw Teresa under the bus at all.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Friends not friends
        Told to confront Mego

        Next wee will be interesting to see what BRAVO edits out of her mouth.

        • Rebecca says:

          Penny and Teresa both said they were acquaintances not friends. She never said Teresa told her to confront Melissa.

  19. Amalfi says:

    I am not Team Jen or Team Angelina (is that even a thing anymore?)… but a little part of me that always liked Rachel Greene hopes this is true….

    • TexasTart says:

      It might still be a thing because I have a friend that will likely always hate AJ for “stealing” Brad. Personally, I never cared, lol.

      Jen is not pregnant…

      • Amalfi says:

        That’s his job though, right?

        From your article “”It does feel like they’ve exhausted…the speculation,” the We’re the Millers star told Australia’s Kyle & Jackie O Show last month. “It’s all been pretty much exhausted.”

        She added, “Why not just wait until we actually get to have the fun of announcing something? Who wants to play the guessing game?”

        I;m gonna say right here right now she is and is just waiting until she is far enough along at her age before announcing to the world. If I am right I will remind you ALL. If I am wrong, hopefully you all wouldn’t even remember. 🙂

      • TexasTart says:

        And furthermore, I don’t get it when women get pissed at another woman for “stealing” a man – especially when you don’t personally know them – but it takes two.

      • Rebecca says:

        How come Blake Lively gets a pass for doing the same thing to Scarlett Johanson, but everybody blames Angelina for giving Brad the family he always wanted? He gave interview after interview about wanting a bunch of kids.

        • TexasTart says:

          Good point. And hey, I do not like LeAnn Rimes, but she can not take blame for breaking up Brandi & ManCandy. Isn’t he a serial cheater in the first place?! Hello, Sheana and how many others?!

          • T-Rex says:

            Exactly, from all accounts ManCandyEddie started cheating on BrandiSTFU during her first pregnancy, and in addition, she has claimed to have had threesomes with ManCandyEddie, which to me, means having an “open” marriage.

        • chismosa says:

          I like Angelina and have always disliked Jen back from an interview she did long ago

          Angelina is getting a special Oscar this year.

        TexasTart that just why my mom doesn’t like AJ. Esp since Brad wasn’t the first. She broke up Laura Dern(I think thats her name) & BB Thornton.

    Andy Cohen puts rumors to rest about him and Sean Avery, saying Sean is straight and they are friends…

    I don’t know if this was posted already or not. Interesting read.
    So, according to this Teresa had Skinny Italian Trademarked before Bethenny Trademarked Skinny Cocktail, more proof that SGM “invention” happened during the filming on RHONY and was not a long project B was working on.

    • not THAT Jill says:

      This story made me dizzier than the famewhoga site!

      • Cartwheels says:

        It might be a silly question but did I miss the links were this blogger provided any proof of any of this “salacious” information?
        I am LMAO at the simple thought of Bethenny having that much power being that Bethenny and Andy have both confirmed that they were not friends at the beginning of the series and never became close until after Bethenny was out of RHNY.
        Another contradiction is the fact that Bethenny “aproved” the coming of the Gorgas, it wasn’t Danielle or Teresa’s histerical reaction at the reunion season 2, it was Bethenny’s doing.

        Teresa is not one to be quiet, especially when it comes to her products and I do believe that if she would have trademarked “skinny italian” before Bethenny did, she would had been the first one to tell so. Whenever fans made a deal (not even Bethenny did, she said imitation was a form of flattery) about this issue, Teresa never denied it, Teresa never said “hold one one second , bitch, if anything you copied me and here is the evidence -certificate of trademark with date on tow. That would had been a huge smackdown to Bethenny, but Teresa never did that. (maybe because it is not true?)
        Jonathan Cheban having that much power at Bravo? I always assumed that he was one of those poor lost souls who would take a picture with anybody just to stay relevant, but maybe he is that powerful. I thought that if he indeed represented JZ then nobody would want anything to do with him but I guess I am wrong again and he basically is the master pupeteer right along with Bethenny and Andy.
        Bethenny must be so powerful that she singlehandlely chose the production team that would bury Teresa and she specifically instructed them as to how to do it too, LOL
        Teresa is a mess when she butchers the language but I bet that is also part of the evil plan to make her look like a moron, in reality she is a member of the mensa club. Oh boy

    • chismosa says:

      Wow VV this really supports your theory about Beth/Barf

      • VV says:

        Chismo, this not new. It’s been around for some time in old blogs when Bethenny was favorite to the masses and prople would overlook the obvious because they liked her.

        • chismosa says:

          But it’s a good reminder !
          Especially now that Tre is doing more / is in the news more (!!!!!) and B has her show and is on the cover of People talking her “brutal brutal time “…


          • VV says:

            Bethenny was brutal to Teresa on her blogs. Somehow. People remember the other way around only.

            • not THAT Jill says:

              VV-I agree that Bethenny was brutal-but I will say she didn’t lie. Teresa was a ditzy broad season 1-I liked her b/c of it. She said dumb things and did dumb things. When she spoke I would cringe-I knew she was going to say something stupid. If you asked me back then if I thought she would being doing all that she does today I would have said NO WAY!!!! I wouldn’t have believed it possible that she could write one sentence let a lone be a NY times best selling cook book author!!

    • missusmc says:

      Ugh. I hate reading stories against bethenny. And I know it’s illogical on my part, but I still like the girl. And her assessment of Teresa during the pilot episode was spot on. Maybe a little mean spirited, but definitely accurate. I find Teresa much more like able now than at that first introduction. I see them all as evil (even my beloved Lisa.) they’ve all sold themselves out for fame (or notoriety, at least) and money, often at the expense of their loved ones. So, for me, it’s all about putting my devotion behind the least evil. Bethenny, for me, is one of the least evil. (I don’t buy the whole aw, shucks, I’m just a small town boy routine from Jason. No ones a victim in that relationship, besides Bryn).

      • chismosa says:

        You’re not alone– apparently there are thousands/millions enough during the trial run last summer that love her to ok the show now so don’t worry!

        We are a minority. Like Jill was with Brandi ……before.

      • Powell says:

        I still like B too. I don’t care who helped her & Tre get their products off of the ground. I admire their hard work to get their products in the marketplace, and to expanding their brand. I may not agree w/everything they say or do but good for them for working hard to make their dreams come true.

  22. shamrockblonde says:

    NMD and Stars – amazing blogs!!!!!! loved them!!! can you imagine Tre, Gretch and Kelly Bensimone attempting a conversation? oh my goodness!!

  23. lulu says:

    Hello everyone!!!! Little Aiden has discovered how to roll over onto his belly. Unfortunately he hasn’t mastered how to roll back let’s just say this momma’s having sleepless night. ;).

    Jeff you pretty much summed up how my DH feels about the nj crew!! Pretty funny!!

    Starsy and the gretchenisms its like the gift that keeps giving too funny. Poor gretchen wit and articulation fail her.

    According to Mel our husbands will leave us if “we” are not in a certain shape??? What an idiot!

    I dream of NeNe was refreshing! Finally an enjoyable new series. I agree with you NMD 100%!!!

  24. mm in oc says:

    My favorite Gretchenism of the year has to be when she said Epitone instead of Epitome. I laughed for about 15 minutes. That isn’t even a work – epitone. How do you get that word so wrong?? what a dummy.

  25. VV says:

    Saw the second promo for BH. OMG!

    Those b*tch*es are still jealous that Lisa is the breakout star and has a spinoff. Lisa is also opening yet another restaurant. In the mean time the rest of them are …

    • not THAT Jill says:

      I only saw one b*tch who seemed jealous….

      • VV says:

        I think they all resent that Lisa is do successful and liked. Well, I think Kim is just happy to get a check BUT being a former movie star is gotta sting she’s supporting cast.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          VV, I agree that they are all jelly and have been since season 2. They tried to “ice” her and the fans just fell more in love with Lisa VDP. But perhaps Jill is referencing the word “B*57h” LOL!!

          • not THAT Jill says:

            I was talking about what I saw in the preview-the only bitchy one I saw was Brandi-I didn’t even think Yolanda was so bad and you know how I feel about LemonDrop!!!

  26. VV says:

    Brandi forgets she was the first one to bring up allegations of infidelity about Mauricio. Camille Grammer did the same in camera but when your net worth is about 50 million all is forgiven in the Umanski household.

  27. AZGirl says:

    Thank you NMD and Starzy for the great blogs. Saw Penny’s blog yesterday. Very clever. Gretchen is really a moron.
    Brandi is biting the hand that fed her and Lisa does not need Brandi to stay relevant. As a result, Brandi is taking herself “out of the game” so to speak.

  28. I just posted this on my facebook…………….
    First I was worried that Breaking Bad and Dexter were going to end on the same night and I looked it up and Dexter ends THIS SUNDAY….. 4 days!!! And Breaking Bad ends on the 29th!!!!!!!!!!! I am not properly prepared for this!!!! eeeeek!!!

    • chismosa says:

      Princess hi!
      It’s doing to be a crazy few Sundays LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHIN’……

      The Emmys…. Dexter, BB, I think Survivor?, Amazing Race, the Good Wife, Revenge
      HOMELAND …..
      Oh, and Bravo

      Too much on Sundays my dvr can’t take Sundays. It starts to turn red on Saturday nights in anticipation

  29. TexasTart says:

    STARS! Gretchen’s Gretchiest Moments is … dare I say, brilliant!!! 😀 That special blog was so unexpected and an absolute giggle fest….so glad you elaborated in lieu of a top ten list.

    My Mother, God bless her, has a collection of words that she slaughters. Everyone seems to know her language (the translation) and tries to minimize any out loud laughing 😆 Just saying, that if you or anyone else gets Gretchenisms stuck in their head – I have Mom’s special words tucked away in there and pray they are not verbalized in the wrong company, lol.

  30. Powell says:

    Did ya’ll know tonight is the 400th epi of Survivor?

  31. AZGirl says:

    I am watching last week’s episode and the basketball scene was good with the exception of all the BLK water promotion. If these NJ people are so concerned about autism then why not leave their personal promos at home.
    Milania is quite a lovely girl. She is strong but also very nurturing. She is going grow up with a good head on her shoulders.
    I just realized that I never see Mel “playing” with her children on film. We see Joey but not Mel. She does not want to mess her hair, nails or makeup. Really sad.
    Kathy and Richie need to be off this show. They are boring. Only Rosie is interesting.

    • MelTheHound says:

      I finally saw the show… It WAS a BLK event.. I think they are only on the show to push that shit though so every time they come on screen, my eyes roll 🙄 I also didn’t see the Gorgas there. Please tell me we won’t have to suffer through Autotune going to Orlando for ‘training’. … and no… None of my ‘rant’ has changed 😉

      • AZGirl says:

        I did see Mel and Joey when Jacko was about speak. They were sitting in the first row. Why do people buy sh#t like BLK water? I have witnessed any and every supplement known to mankind (fitness industry) and all I can say is PT Barnum was right.

    Mego is getting killed by the amazon reviews I think jill’s book did better then hers. That’s embarrassing.

  34. Nancy says:

    This is one of the reviews on Melissa’s “book” over at Amazon. 🙂

    “I’ve honestly never read something so self absorbed in my entire life.
    I just wanted it to be over. I was going to try to return the book but I feel
    like that would result in bad karma because someone else would buy it
    and have to relive the nightmare. I’ll spare someone else. You’re
    welcome universe.”

    • chismosa says:

      Yeah but these leave me suspicious. Why would this person —- were they marked “amazon verified buyer”? even purchase this book with that attitude ? Did they never watch Mel on TV ? Wouldn’t they KNOW how her personality is? Of course that will translate to the book.

      So …… I’m very Susan Saunders about the tons of negative reviews on certain polarizing people.

      Ps on amazon I can’t believe HOW MANY PEOPLE actually reviewed Brandi’s book. That was beyond shocking to me

      Not the stars, the sheer NUMBER.
      She has a cult on her hands

  35. Nancy says:

    Great blogs NMD and Stars99. Thank-you.

      Sometimes Naughtybutnicerob gets it right! No shocker there but makes me think that the only thing that is attracting to me is what one time NMD wrote about watching their not so Reality show and what is going on in their lives after filming. And for sure, coming and reading your comments!

  37. cusi77 says:

    I hope here is the right place to share this I found on Internet… Thinking of you always KML, Dame, to many to mention… Love you all!

    “The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

    The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

    The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France ‘s white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.

    Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout Loudly and Excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”

    The Germans have increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs.” They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbor” and “Lose.”

    Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.

    The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

    Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be alright, Mate.” Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.

        SOooooo, BrandiSTFU does read this blog, and the few others that are now squarely poised against her. She better get her big girl panties on, because it ain’t going to be too pleasant for her this next season. By her diarhheaofTweets and the clips we have seen she chose a battle, and guess what buttercup, you chose very unwisely! You got where you are on the coat-tails of others, remember, the heads you step on on your way to the top are the ones laughing at you as you fall to the bottom. Bravo tried that LisaV takedown a couple of seasons ago, it backfired BIG TIME! From the scenes Bravo has placed, doesn’t BrandiSTFU realize it will probably be her that is actually receiving the Bitch Edit!
