Survivor – Blood vs Water – One Armed Dude and 3 Moms / Million Dollar Listing LA

S27_Preview_LogoWelcome back castaways.. Last week Brad decided it would be dangerous to have both Candice and John in the came so they sent John to the island. That didn’t really matter to me because the best thing ever happened on Survivor – the bigot quit again. The show opens this week as John hits redemption island and of course both he and his wife are shocked that he’s there. What that means is one of them isn’t coming back to the game. Only one returns from redemption island and they have to fight for their spot. I don’t particularly like the guy but I can’t deny that Brad is playing the game. Caleb is a little worried that his partner is gone and that leaves him alone in the game. I don’t think he should worry, the guy was useless anyway.

The show gets right to Redemption Island  (RE) competition as everyone learns what has taken place. When the 3 RE players are brought in, Candice flips Brad off. Jeff Probsts her a little bit asking if she was surprised to see her hubby there at RE. She was, and still is. She wanted someone there that she and Marissa could work together to eliminate.  Someone they both could hate, such as Brad. There is some discussion as to whether Brad ‘hushes’ the women on his tribe. John says he doesn’t see it. However, John does tell the tribe not to trust Brad because he’s playing all of them. We’ll see if these dumbasses are smart enough to get the hint. Monica (Brad’s wife)  says there is more than one person voting. She’s right. I wonder if John told his wife that he has shared the idol clues with Brad (an absolute moronic move IMO).

sur1The challenge… We have seen these before. They have to maneuver a key along a rope that is wrapped around a ladder platform to unlock a bag of puzzle pieces. John and Marissa are the first to get their to their bags and unlock them to begin the puzzle, Candice is bringing up the rear.

All 3 are working on their puzzles now. John basically runs away with this challenge with a little help from Brad. I don’t think he needed it though. He wins the right to give away a sur2clue to anyone he wants. Candice is slow and methodical with the puzzle and it is paying off. Marissa is getting frustrated even as Gervace (her uncle) tries to coach her. In the end, Candice wins that middle spot and Marissa is out of the game.

Probst asks John who to give the clue to, Candice says to give it to Monica. Probst asks him if he always listens to his wife, she says something to the effect of she always suggests. John says that he gave it to Monica to put the same target on her back that was on his. She decides she doesn’t want it, and burns it. Probst says that’s the first time that’s ever happened on Survivor. Did she make a mistake? We’ll see. At the RE beach, John and Candice are happy to be playing the game together again. How sweet. All they have to do to continue this payed for tropical vacation, is keep winning.

At the Galang camp, Monica is touting her husband’s good traits and thinks it is he who is keeping the Tadhang tribe alive by feeding all of them and being the papa bear of the group. Fact is, she doesn’t know because she isn’t there. She wonders if there will ever be a duel where her husband isn’t accosted. It’s a game Monica, build a bridge and get over it. Gervace points out that she knows Brad the family man. She doesn’t know Brad the survivor contestant. He’s right. In TH he says that if Brad has emerged as the leader and everyone is following him (as always happens in these games) then kudos to him because it certainly wasn’t his niece, Marissa, who took that role. Brad is still an ass though – MTH.

Over at Tadhang, all are noting that people are taking things way too personally. That’s all I am going to say about that. TH Brad sets his sights on Caleb because he’s unconnected and there isn’t going to be someone on the other side hurt that he was voted off. Caleb thinks that if they lose, it will be one of the two remaining girls who is voted off. The guys say they need to keep Brad around because if they all make it to the merge, it will be him with the huge target on his back. They say that they have to be careful that they don’t get “Johnned”… Guys, there were only two girls at the last tribal, it took a couple of you to vote him off too – MTH. Just sayin. At Galang, I guess Tyson is still in the game, he was just pulled from the last challenge. He’s working that hurt arm though as the women are waiting on him hand and foot. In TH, he admits that he’s milking it a bit though it does hurt. While the women are off doing other things, he and Gervace go to the coconut grove.. Apparently, they are taking the coconuts and poking holes in them to drink the contents and leaving the empty shells. That way when the others go to gather coconuts, all they are finding are the empty ones. Pretty shady and both know that if they get caught, they are cooked. Somehow the women become convinced that it must be some insect or other creature drilling through one inch of coconut shell to get to the contents. Whatever, ladies.

Immunity challenge

sur3Teams must paddle these boats out into the water, go around a flag and on the way back, collect 5 crates that are tied to the bottom. Then bring them back, and build a staircase, that is itself a puzzle spelling blood vs water. Then two members from each tribe has to solve another puzzle that will reveal a combination. With that, manipulate the combination lock to unlock a key. That key will open a lock at the top of the platform. Once they open the lock, they can raise their teamsur5 flag and that ends the challenge. First to do that, wins immunity. They are also playing for reward. Coffee, tea, baked goods. That, or they can trade it for fishing gear. I guess that option only exists for Tadhang as they have none, but, they don’t appear to be starving. Due to numbers, Galang has to sit out two members. They choose Kat, and Tina. Probst asks Tyson if he’s going to be able to do this, he says he wants to give it the ole college try. Kat is historically useless in these challenges, Tina is a pretty strong woman. We’ll see how this works out for them. Let’s get this party started. The teams get their sur8boats in the water and begin paddling. Tadhang takes an early lead as the teams race out to the flags. On the way back the teams are pretty neck and neck in getting those crates untied. Laura B proves to be a huge asset at that part of it for Galang.. Brad gets most of the crates for Tadhang but their boat tips and they lose a couple opening the door for Galang to take the lead. Both make it to the shoreline with all 5 though and beginsur9 unloading their crates. All 5 have to be on the deck before they can begin building the staircase. Both get it done and then it is on to the puzzle. It always comes down to the puzzle. The teams working the puzzle are Tyson and Laura M vs Cierra and Vytas. This is the second time Laura and Cierra (mother daughter) have gone head to head sur6in a puzzle challenge in this game. First time, Laura won. It’s kind of a close race at this point but it is Laura and Tyson who win again for Galang (yellow). Tyson solves the combination lock and raises the flag for Galang, giving them the win so they remain undefeated. Tadhang loses once again, I won’t say it’s for lack of effort, they both gave it their best shot. Although, I have to wonder why Vytas (Tadhang) was rolling his crate along the beach when everyone else was carrying theirs. I guess at this point, it doesn’t matter much, they lost again, will remain without fishing gear or even the goodies that the other tribe now gets to enjoy, and are on their way, again, to tribal council. Laura wants her daughter to succeed but isn’t going to throw a game so she can. Her tribe is counting on her to do her best and that’s what she has to do.

The pre-tribal stuff begins at Tadhang, this stuff rarely reveals anything so I’m not going to go deep into it. TH Hayden thinks that they are the stronger team but they just can’t pull off a win. Today, they lost to a one arm dude and three moms. Brutal, Brutal, he says. TH Cierra says that there is always a routine.. The guys go to get water which is code about which girl to bounce, the girls stay behind to make rice which is code for how do they save their asses. Today however, Brad stays behind to tell Cierra and Katie that his target is Caleb. Hopes they believe him, Cierra says she is going to go along with it.  He tells them if the then lose another challenge, then it’s time for some people to go (code for another girl will go).. Caleb and the other two guys are suspicious that Brad stayed behind to talk to the girls. They want to send Cierra to RE but are concerned that they may get Johhned. Let’s get to tribal council.

Tribal Council

The tribe arrives and the Probsting begins. Brad says this game isn’t as he visualized it. Twice they’ve lost games that came down to the puzzle, and both times, Cierra volunteered to do the puzzle, and both times, they lost even though they had a lead going in to the puzzle. He said earlier in TH, he’s the dick, and it doesn’t matter if he draws heat from Laura M, who is Cierra’s mom. Cierra admits she may not be as good at puzzles as she thinks she is.. Ya Think, Cierra? Probst turns back to Brad and notes that he’s always the ass at RE taking the heat for who is voted off. Probst then notes, that Brad may be thinking that it is a good idea to vote off someone who doesn’t have a loved one left in the game to remove that heat from his feet. Brad says, “yeah”.. Watch out Caleb. He says that his alliance with Heydon and Vytas is solid but he no longer trusts Brad. This whole Probsting session has left a bad taste of blindside in his mouth even though he loves a good blindside, when he’s not the butt of it. He then tells Cierra that he’s going to write Brad’s name down, she and the others can do what they want. BBB is hurt that it has even been said, and says he isn’t going to write Brad’s name down. Heydon and Vytas cannot believe what they have just heard and both say they aren’t voting for Brad. We all know this doesn’t matter but it was interesting to see the alliance begin to split apart. So who is going? Let’s vote. Caleb voted Brad, Brad voted Cierra. Probst collects the votes, asks for the idol, 3/3 split, Cierra vs Brad. Revote and neither of them can vote. Votes read and holy crap on a cracker, the shot caller is on his way to RE with Candice and John. Monica is going to be pissed. It had to be Vytas who voted for Brad because Heydon was shown about to change his vote from Cierra but he voted for her in the end. Caleb and Katie were the other two.

See you next week. MTH.


SAMCRO fans, here is my recap for this week.


Million Dollar Listing L.A.

Episode 10 – Madison vs. Heather (Again!)

by Vilzvet

Madison has a listing appointment up in the hills of Malibu, at a home designed by architect Finn Knappe.  He meets with the owner Mimi in her glass walled home. At 2000 square feet, it has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and encompasses three levels of canyon views on one acre. Mimi is a chef and offers Madison a glass of wine as she cooks and explains her reason for selling: they have enjoyed their three years here but as a part-time residence it is time to move on. The bedrooms are on the small side, has no ocean views and it does need some repair work, even though it is quite unique. Her purchase price 4 years ago was $1.285 million, and even though she’s looking for a nice profit margin, Margin convinces her to try a first listing price of $1.995 million. Mimi agrees to give it a go, and even offers Madison a nice plate of chicken marsala to celebrate.

Josh F. and Heather are at their Tony Duquette estate special event brokers’ open. This home will have a listing price of $4.8 million and is 38 acres. Duquette was a famous interior designer, and this home is filled with his vision and will be sold with many of his pieces. Mikey, Josh Altman’s assistant, was brought in to help assist with the food and details. Josh F. doesn’t mind as long as Mikey doesn’t screw up! Madison shows up and takes a tour. He is rather surprised to find out that his former assistant Heather is partnering with Mr. Flagg on this listing. He wonders aloud to her what her boyfriend Mr. Altman’s opinion of this was. Heather says it is none of Josh’s business what she does in her career. Madison also questions Heather’s morals in listing a property with Flagg, a direct competitor of her boyfriend, and did she even let him know she was going to do so? Before things get too heated, Mikey tells Madison he better leaveas the two former friends argue. Josh F. is relieved that no outsiders (potential buyers!) witnessed that little confrontation.

The Altman brothers receive a call from George, a very good client of theirs who purchases and renovates homes at a nice profit. George’s latest venture is a small home in the Westwood section of Los Angeles that George has tried to keep as original as possible. The brothers agree to a brokers’ open next week, sight unseen.

The day of the Westwood house showing dawns. This little gem has been completely gutted and redone in its original Spanish style. It is 2700 square feet and has four bedrooms, 4 baths, and a beautiful outdoor courtyard. George has sunk $500,000.00 in this renovation and it shows. The furnishings look authentic but are brand new. The brothers have even brought in a mariachi player to keep the mood festive as potential buyers and brokers arrive.

Josh F. begins to show his beautiful renovated high rise  condo fully furnished and at an asking price of $2 million. He already has a half a million dollar investment in this  1,700 sq ft, 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit, with a gorgeous Viking kitchen with imported Italian marble floors. He feels a bit strange when he has to accept various criticisms from the potential buyers and brokers but he knows his personal connection to the place will be a plus.

Josh A. and his brother Matt are rehashing the brokers’ open at the Westwood home, and are still waiting for an initlal offer on the renovated property. . Matt worries that no one will appreciate the beautiful finishes that George has installed in the house. Josh asks his assisant Mikey to send out a mass mailing to as many brokers as possible on the west side of Los Angeles.

Madison gets his new Malibu listing properly photographed before his brokers’ open. Unfortunately, rain greets the day of the showing. He still has numerous visitors and many brokers are fawning over the house. He even receives a written offer DURING the showing for $1.6 million. He calls the owner with the amount, but she feels it is a bit low. They agree to counter offer back at $1.795 million. Madison frets it may be too high and that this could scare the potential buyer away. He nervously makes the call.

Josh F. gets an all-cash offer of $1.7 million for his condo. He is firm that he would not accept below $1.85 million. The opposing broker says her clients are really not even interested in the furnishings, but Josh points out how valuable the pieces are. He receives a counter offer of $1.8 million. Josh hesitates and tries to act his way to a higher amount but now pretending his has second thoughts about selling his home.

Josh A. meets with George about their listing. He presents the $1.8 million offer, which is about $200,000.00 below their asking price. George would like to counter back the FULL price, but Josh tries to point out how risky that could be. George would agree to a 30-day closing if Josh could get $1.9 million. He makes the call. He receives a response that the amount would be offered if all the newly-installed antique sinks are REPLACED; a firepit installed; and the wrought iron gate to be motorized. George is insulted that the sinks he looked so carefully for are being rejected. His wife tries to reason with him that it is just a matter of taste. George decides to make the changes. The deal is struck.

Back in Josh F.’s high rise condo, he finally receives the offer he wanted: $1.85 million. Josh decides to be a bit greedy and holds out for $1.86 million, or another 10 grand. The broker makes the call and he gets his price! He knows he has to call Colton and let him know they have 30 days to move to….where?!

Josh A. heads to the jeweler to take a first look at Heather’s engagement ring. He opens the box and stares at a stunning round-cut perfect ring. It is absolutely beautiful, completely studded with 2.6 carats worth of diamond and rated “D” flawless. Josh cannot believe his is going to be proposing to Heather, who he admits he is so in love with.

In Malibu, Madison is lamenting that the offer he had received was suddenly taken off the table. Another broker, however, is coming to the home to talk further about a potential offer. This broker is going to be doing “sound checks” in each room to test the level of quietness! The house passes that test. The broker brings up small issues (no pool, small cracks in the kitchen floor). Madison tells the broker that the the cracks were there from Day 1 and have not grown. The offer is $1.4 million, quite below the $2 million asking price. Madison knows this will be hard to present to the seller.

Heather meets with Josh F. to discuss the Duquette situation. They decide how they should proceed with any possible price reduction; Josh says that will not be an option for the seller at this point. The two agree to keep the house listed and to continue to plug away. Josh also knows he has to keep Madison and Heather separated in the future, or at least away from HIM!

Madison feels Mimi will insulted at the $1.4 million offer. He tells Michael the opposing broker that he already has a second offer of $1,600,000.00, which has not countered yet. Michael calls his client to let them know of this development. He receives word that his client will be willing to add 5 grand, and go to$1.605,000.00. Madison has to call Mimi with this other offer. She wonders if this is a good price? Madison advises her to accept the deal, and he gives Michael the good news.

Next week’s episode looks juicy; did Josh Flagg take a client away from the Altmans?! Also, Josh must let his beloved grandmother know he will be leaving his condo and she won’t be his penthouse neighbor anymore.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Happy Friday eveeeee. 🙂 It’s soooo rainy out. I hope you all get a piece of sunshine. Don’t work to hard & have a great day.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Nothing but sunshine and wonderful autumn weather here in Huskerville. Let’s all have a terrific Thursday!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Greetings Powellypooh!! Hello one and all. Gorgeous weather in Austin TX. LOVE IT!!! Gonna go see the James Gandolfini movie tonight “Enough Said”…how sad that he’s no longer with us. I hope everyone is well.

    • djprincessc says:

      Powell! I said I miss you on the other blog, I hope you saw!! xoxoxo!!

  2. Shiny says:

    Great day today. My 94 year old mother has moved to assisted care apartment and likes the food! The house she lived in for 58 years has been completely cleared out over many trips this summer. And the listing went up today, photos and all. I barely recognize it in the photos because the rooms look so big empty, and the beautiful wood floors are visible. I am feeling so much lighter.
    Hope you all have lots of smiling today, too.

    (Waited to post – did not want George – enjoy him, Powell)

    • Powell says:

      Hey Shiny. You sound lighter. I can visualize
      you breathing a sigh of relief. That’s great for
      your family & your mom. I hope she really likes it.

    • BB says:

      I know it’s a load off of your mind to know your mom is in a safe environment. It means a lot. My mom and I are discussing those options right now. It’s not in the immediate future, but we are discussing it now so we will be ready when the time comes (if you can ever be ready for it).

      • Shiny says:

        Good luck, BB. My mother was determined that she would die in her own home, but health issues and her decreasing energy level finally convinced her that she couldn’t continue in a big house that didn’t allow for one-level living and was hours from her daughters. I wish she’d done it ten years ago when she was more active and could see better, but she’s enjoying the change more than she ever expected to.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I am glad your mom likes the new place.

  3. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Cloudy, rainy and cool this a.m. in AZ. Snow up in Flagstaff last night. Josh A. getting teary eyed over the engagement ring was a little “to much”. Madison is right about Heather but needs to stay out of it. Seems like Flagg is always having fights at showings.

  4. Good Morning – blog updated with million dollar listing LA. I feel sad that Josh Flagg isn’t going to be living near his grandmother any longer.

  5. Page 6 is reporting that Ramona’s husband Mario is having an affair and has gotten a young – 20 something pregnant. A roommate is saying he took a “selfie” and she saw a picture of his naughty bits taken in their apartment. This makes me very sad. Ramona was such a supporter of Lynn’s blog, and no one deserves to wake up and have to deal with this news. And poor Avery – a freshman in college. Her father is (allegedly) running around like a tom cat her last summer at home.

    • AZGirl says:

      What is wrong with men? Even with all of the crazy that is Ramona she is still very beautiful and smart. What young girl would sleep with a 60 year old man?
      I hope this not true. Poor Avery.

    • missusmc says:

      So sad. No matter the housewife, even if its someone I don’t like, I will never celebrate a man cheating on her, ever. No one deserves that.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        It’s says in the article that Ramona and Mario have been married for 27 years-if they do not fact check something so simple as that then it makes me think they don’t fact check anything else.

        • missusmc says:

          I sincerely hope it isn’t true. Rumors about Mario aren’t new. He’s a good looking guy with money in NYC. I imagine many women would want to sleep with him. If it were true, though, I just can’t be happy about it (same goes for caroline, for Kyle, for any others).

    • Powell says:

      Wendy Williams talked about it this morn. She didn’t talk about the girl being pregnant though. I just hope it’s not true. If it is I don’t know how Ramona can live w/that in her marriage.

    • Mene Seela says:

      Pregnant and the Very Catholic Mario paid for the abortion. I tend to believe this story .. Page Six is not Radar.

    • BB says:

      I have a feeling Ramona has been dealing with this for longer than we think. It’s just public now. I think it’s sad that Mario, who is supposedly a “good” Catholic and goes to church every day and sells religious jewelry for a living, allegedly paid for his girlfriend to get an abortion. That’s most surprising to me. I’m sorry Ramona and Avery have to suffer through this public humiliation.

      • Mene Seela says:

        Agree. And how crappy would it be for Avery & Ramona to awake to this splashed all over NY? Good going Mario.

    • T-Rex says:

      Gosh, I hope this isn’t true and just a rumor! I am not a fan of the RamonaCoaster, but I certainly thought they had a pretty rock, solid marriage, and would never wish ill on something this horrible happening to her family.

    • Lulu says:

      Anyway this could be wrong? I’m not always one to just “believe” a tabloid? I can’t imagine a man who is married for 27 years would take photographs of himself. Something is just off about the article.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        They haven’t been married for 27 years-maybe 19 or 20…she did her vow renewal for 17 years-I guess three seasons ago? Easy thing to check if facts are important-nowadays facts mean nothing.

    • TexasTart says:

      Something is off about this Mario story, I hope it’s not true…either way how humiliating for Ramona! If it is true, she has already preached about being financially independent and she has a fantastic body – so she should be in good shape to move on. Really sad for her because it seemed they had a good relationship with mutual respect. :-/

      • BB says:

        I don’t believe she will leave him whether it’s true or not. I think she has made herself financially independent in case he were ever to leave her.

      • melthehound says:

        When does RHONY premier? It doesn’t matter what people are talking about as long as they are talking. I think this is just the beginning of stories about the NY cast.. JMHO..

        • TexasTart says:

          Indon’t think this is hype for the show. As for when it might return….

          • melthehound says:

            They have to get an early start.. I don’t trust anything about any of these HWs anymore. Nothing they say carrys any weight with me. Nothing that is reported about them does either. If it turns out to be true, then it really is a shame, they seem pretty good together.

    • TexasTart says:

      Nothing out of the ordinary that I see in tweetville. This was posted 2 hrs ago

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Can’t tell if this is damage control or not. Unless I know the people involved personally and hear it out of their own mouth, I tend not to give this stuff too much credence (unlike Teresa!).

      • missusmc says:

        Whatever Ramona’s doing to look that good, I want in on it. Holy smokes she’s looking younger each year! And not plasticy.

      • BB says:

        There are some cryptic tweets out there by current (Aviva) and past housewives (Jill, Bethenny, Simon (Purveyors of Pop). Whether they pertain to Ramonacoaster I couldn’t begin to guess. Aviva says something about tuning in to Scandal (since when does she promote tv shows). Bethenny says something about the press and fruit baskets. Simon actually mentions Ramona by name. Jill has some type of quote (but she’s always tweeting quotes). Kind of interesting.

    • VV says:

      Mario always looked like a player to me. Not sure about the abortion.

      • vilzvet says:

        Terrible story if true! I really like Ramona for some reason, lol. And damn she sure looks better and better every year. Love her wardrobe. I’m pretty sure they were married a week after me in 1992 so that make 21 years.

  6. Interview with Cristy Rice – one of the originals cast of RHOM.

    She does not like Adriana – and only keeps in touch with Lea out of all the original cast (Marysol, Alexia, Lea, Adriana, and Larsa Pippen.)

    She mentions that she didn’t like the editing at all – that she signed up to show her businesses, and they portrayed her as a party girl.

    Reading the interview – I think she’s smarter than my original impression of her. She walked away because of the edit.

  7. Kelly tweet (is she losing it?)

    Id definitely go on @Bethenny show to set the record straight. How am I her nemesis, when I don’t know her? Hmm….

    • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

      Kelly lost it back in 1969. And never found it again.

    • not THAT Jill says:

      She needs to stop saying Bethennys name -her and Jill both. If they don’t want to go on her show then they shouldn’t be using her to get their names in the press…

    • missusmc says:

      Oh, well, Bethenny’s ratings problems are all solved, right? I mean, who wouldn’t be thrilled to have the glorious KKB on their show? Geez. Honey, if casting directors called other former castmates, and not you, take it as a sign you’re clearly not wanted. Also, if you want to be a part of a show that Jill Freaking Zarin said no to, you’re living your life very wrong.

      • Powell says:

        My mom said she read Bs show has been cancelled & reading between the lines that she & Ellen have had problems.

    • BB says:

      Sounds like Kelly is about to go all Scary Island again.

    • Powell says:

      She has lost it. She’s the one that started the “I’m up here and you’re down there”. She’s the one that keeps bringing B up. She rarely talks about the other ladies, its always about B directly or indirectly. Poor Kelly. Is she working? She’s got too much time on her hands or “needs a hobby”.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        I’m not sure how much truth there is to the Ellen/Bethenny fight as they were tweeting each other last night. True or not Bethennys show I’d getting an awful lot of press these days-her show will not be cancelled until a decision is made in November-and the it won’t be pulled(if cancelled) until next year. I can’t remember where I read that but I’m going to go look for it. (I hope it’s true because I have tickets to the show for November 5th)

        • chismosa says:

          Jill you said October 24 —-?

          WHICH ONE IS IT!?!?! Lol

          • not THAT Jill says:

            Chismosa-don’t come for me like that….
            Filming was cancelled on the 24th so they gave us a new date

            • chismosa says:


              Can’t wait to hear about it. You MUST get up and ask to be part of the questionnaires or whatever …….

            • chismosa says:

              Oh and her birthday is 11/5 so they may tape something on your show for her bday

            • TexasTart says:

              Wonder what kind of gifts you will get. Might get something good, but you might wanna take a stadium cushion for those card table chairs she has, lol. Are you going with your sister that went with, I mean that you went with her to the event where that Johnathan Cheban asshole stepped on you? Why can I not get that out of my head?! lol

              • not THAT Jill says:

                Tartsy-so funny-stupid hair Cheban!! Yes shes coming and my 2 other sisters as well. They send a questionaire to fill out-“do you have any questions for Bethenny” Do you have a secret you want to share”…etc. I made my sister (the youngest and the one that goes to the HW events) fill it out so God only knows what will happen…

                • TexasTart says:

                  Oh no! She might do the secret to share and they’ll pick her because there will be a sister connection…and there goes you and sis looking at the TV camera with your jaws dropping and eyes popping….just speculating, Jill. hehe. 😉

      • missusmc says:

        It doesn’t help that she doesn’t have a good grasp of the English language. She laughably called bethenny “sensationalistic,” while in the same breath saying she would suck the blood of a child for ratings. But Bethenny’s the one that’s sensationalistic. I’m a fan-ish of B’s. I don’t watch her talk show, but I enjoyed her on bravo and I’ve read a book or two of hers. However, I’m not blind to all the criticism of B. There are enough legitimate critiques of her personality, her style when dealing its others, her marriage, etc, but KKB doesn’t acknowledge them. She just makes outlandish claims about B in order to gain attention for herself. She has serious issues.

    Survivor. First time I can remember that the “little” people were smart enough to vote the bully out. in past at tribe when someone said “I’m voting for …” even those on the outs didn’t band together. just settled for being the next one out.

    John Legend & Chrisi Tegan got married in Italy. John was on Wendy and he said they paid for their family that aren’t able to afford the trip to Italy. I don’t know if you all remember Chrisi’s cousin used to comment on the blog a lot. I can’t remember her name. I hope she was able to attend the wedding.

    Hello everyone!! Running errands, laundry! All the fun stuff! The Governor refused to leave the car at the grocery store! Dragged him in kicking and screaming. He quickly stopped when he realized that his behavior is not “governor” like! The look on his face! So undignified!

    RE: OT Tmobile sold my info. Well they didn’t I just got off the phone with them. To have “access” removed from the account. It is done in an entirely separate department. Long story short not going to happen. So this PI has my number and that’s it! I could file a police report but wondering two things? Do I want to let “Psycho” know that I know they are trying to find me? Or leave it alone and pretend it doesn’t bother me?

    • TexasTart says:

      It’s hard to know how to answer that one when we don’t know what “Psycho” is capable of….do you? If no, then file a report.

        Nothing absolutely nothing. If you consider wanting me to know that their “keeping tabs on where I live.”

          I will say one thing.. You have just insured I will never go to Tmobile for phone service.

            Sorry mth!!

          • TexasTart says:

            Lulu, then I would ignore someone who’s just intent on letting you know they know where you are. Very upsetting, sorry this is going on.

            Hey, it’s just as well about T-Mobile, MTH. Someone else (maybe AZGirl) said they had too many solicitations until they got rid of them. As for service, when my sister was with T-Mobile I could not get through one call without signal fade or disconnect. It was maddening!!! I told her that is NOT normal to go to AT&T so I could enjoy communication…now she and I enjoy communications, never disconnects on AT&T, always a signal where I go in Texas at least.

            • AZGirl says:

              Yep it was me. My first cell phone. I signed up on T Mobile and it was a nightmare. I finally switch to Verizon and the sales person at Verizon told me that T Mobile is notorious for selling info.

    not a fan of Brad’s at all, but he is playing the game – Caleb seems like an ok guy, and he really shook up tribal council – I feel badly for Brad’s wife, and can relate to the Mom who keeps beating her daughter at puzzles – either way her heart hurts – very funny line by Hayden – we got beat by a one armed man and three Moms – too funny –

    OT – a little slice of my office interactions –

    when I am not sitting in my glass bubble, I have a cubicle that I sit in – my cube is all the way in the back, and the only other occupied cube was in the front – he was on the phone, when I had a sneezing attack – this is the conversation that I heard after the attack –

    No sir, no one is shooting at us
    yes sir, I’m sure
    No sir, someone sneezed
    no sir it was a girl
    no sir she is quite tiny
    no sir, I don’t think she got hurt
    yes sir, I will tell her and thank you
    he hung up started laughing and said that the guy says God bless you – said he never heard anyone sneeze so loud not even a guy! –

    people are funny –

    and I do have a really loud sneeze – I’v stopped conversations at a bar with it – my husband is mortified – every time – my Dad used to look at me and say “are your shoes too tight?”
    heehee –

    I’m not sure who will miss the other more – Josh Flagg or his Grandmother – I love that lady – and she is a lady – the RH could all take a lesson from her –

    • Shiny says:

      Love the “are your shoes too tight?” response.

      I have opposite sneeze pattern: little ones, but always seven in a row. People start Blessing me then just stare as I continue on and on. Other people back away assuming I have the plague. Husband just claims it proves I haven’t been replaced by a pod person yet.

    • melthehound says:

      no sir, I don’t think she got hurt
      Haha! 😆

      • TexasTart says:

        That’s what I’m laughing at… sneezes are embarrasingly loud and fortunately mostly happens at home….and my man often will ask “did you hurt yourself with that?”. He hates it, but what can I do?! Funny story Shamrock!

    • AZGirl says:

      My brother sneezes really loud. Scares the sh$t out of me.

    • Laineylainey says:

      I love it!

    • Boobah says:

      That is So FUNNY!!! LoL!

  13. shamrockblonde says:

    shiny – I usually always sneeze multiple times, one right after the other and my kids know to wait to say God Bless you – one of the girls’ friends heard me sneezing and looked at her and said “aren’t you going to say bless you?” – she turned and said, “I’m waiting” – my husband has been known to finally say “oh knock it off!!” – when I’m done he’ll say “love youuuuu honey” ahahahahaha –

    and Jeff – sometimes they actually do hurt!!!

    I was playing hide and seek with my grandchildren, one of whom is 7 and the other is four – I was hiding with the four old when I started sneezing – of course the 7 year old found us gleefully saying she followed the sneezes the four year old started crying and said it was no fair and refused to hide with me again – can’t say I blame him!!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      After someone sneezes, I always say “you’re sooooo good lookin’.” One of my favorite Seinfeld references.

    • melthehound says:

      i know SRB, I just thought that was funny.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        Jeff – it was funny – wish you could have heard the tone of voice of my coworker.. so calm, as if that was a perfectly normal conversation – he told me the guy spent more time questioning the sneezing than he did asking about his original reason for calling – AZGirl – I did that a bar once and the guy sitting next to me was just about to take a drink of his beer – he jumped and the beer spilled all over him – Mr. Shamrock just looked at me with that pained expression, and promptly bought the guy another beer while I was apologizing all over the place – he was really good about it, laughing it off –

    • Orson says:

      My mom always sneezed in bursts. And she’d go “Achooeeeyyyy!” Instead of blessing her, I’d ask “Are you done?”

  14. VV says:

    Vilzvet, great recap. I’ve been saying this for a few weeks now and I’ll say it again. MDLLA is very very scripted. We have become so Bravo savvy that can tell all the fakery in one scene. From the camera angles, to strangers already miked, to the phone calls always on time for every scene, to the choppy editing, to the fake reactions. All always tied with the infamous Bravo Talking Head. Same formula for all their reality shows. Not very creative people over at Bravo BUT love seeing the beautiful homes and don’t mind watching all three guys they are so different.

    • vilzvet says:

      Thanks VV! Yes now that the cat is out of the bag a bit with Bravo and has been for awhile it’s pretty easy to see where “turn cameras on” begins! I also really only watch to see those homes, because there is really not much drama. I’m hoping the new blood on BH will make that show more interesting this year.

    • chismosa says:

      VV do you think MDL NY is scripted as much? That’s my favorite.
      And I live for Frederik 💏💏💚💛💜💙

      • VV says:

        Frederic and Ryan are former actors. Luis went to film school.
        Yes, they are all scripted. IMO. NY has better actors 😜

        • chismosa says:

          PORN actor. I didn’t know that Fred had other real acting experience. Haha 👥👥👬👬👬

  15. HuskerHuny says:

    I can finally let the cat out of the bag. I’m going to be a first-time grandmother! My daughter started her second trimester today. Things are a bit out of order though. She and her boyfriend have been together for five years and engaged for one year, planning on a April 2015 wedding. Oops! They both are over the moon about it and I’m still adjusting, but it’s getting more and more real each day. Just wish she got that last semester of college in though. I think she’s on the 10 year plan for that college degree. Fortunately, she’s a very smart girl and it will all work out.

              • looneylucy says:

                I remember seeing her in the audience when Buzz Aldrin was on Dancing with the Stars a few years ago. Within the past year I recall reading that they were filing for divorce and she was trying to take him to the cleaners. Don’t recall how long they were married, but for some reason I’m remembering it wasn’t a life-long marriage.

                I don’t know if she’d had too much to drink or not in that video, but she was creepy imo.

              • Orson says:

Maybe distract me by putting me in my room with some shiny objects that will keep me busy for awhile. Or get me a cat. Or put on reruns of Law & Order. Anything to keep me from making me look like a total old fool like the former Mrs. Aldrin!

    Nurse Nancy: is there a test doctors can do to tell if someone is lactose intolerant ?

    • Nancy says:

      Hi chismosa…funny you should ask that as I have become lactose intolerant
      all of a sudden. Completely out of the blue as I’ve been drinking milk my entire life.
      To answer your question…no. A diagnosis is based on history alone. Do you think
      you are?

      • chismosa says:

        Nancy it has come out of nowhere for me too

        I read online that as you get older you are more prone to it. And certain ethnic groups too.

        I don’t like milk- too much estrogen (most cows are pregnant that they use to get the milk these days)
        You have to be careful with almond milk as it’s always chock full of sugar

        I don’t know, I’m testing myself.

        Orson —- I’ve heard that if you drink a tall glass of milk and wait you can test yourself that way but I’d love a medical way.
        Luckily I don’t care about ice cream.
        Just cereal and my coffee, which is always milk with a touch of coffee, that’s how light I take it ! Lol

        • djprincessc says:

          HI Chismosa,

          If you drink plain unsweetened Almond Milk theres hardly any sugar at all in it the one I use has 2 grams in it I think 🙂

        • Nancy says:

          The AMA doesn’t consider Lactose Intolerance a disease so they don’t spend much
          money on it.

    • Orson says:

      I guess you could test yourself with a pint of your favourite icecream and a nice glass of milk.

      • looneylucy says:

        Not stalking your Orson! But your advice is spot on if there’s any question. I’ve read the tests from a dr. require you to do exactly that.

        I, too, became lactose intolerant around the age of 55. I had been on bioidentical hormones for 2 mos. & thought my trips to the loo had to be related to hormones. I drank milk at breakfast and maybe had cottage cheese or yogurt at lunch. One evening after supper I had one scoop of ice cream and didn’t make it 15 steps to the bathroom. Didn’t make it past rising out of the chair. As Nancy said, I’ve loved and eaten dairy all my life.

        Prior to the ice cream nite I’d gone to the dr. & had every test imaginable. She said, “nothing’s wrong with you, take probiotics”. I did, but was still eating dairy. The scoop of butter pecan gave me the answer.

        There are lactose free dairy products that I buy. But since it took so long to get a dx, I don’t even want a glass of milk, or even care to have a bowl of cereal.

        I’m interested to hear about your journey, Nancy.

        • Nancy says:

          Hi Lucy…Basically the same story. I would drink some milk and within a very short
          amount of time I got severe abdominal cramps. I can however eat cottage cheese
          so it doesn’t make a lot of sense. My sister runs a GI lab here in LA and she couldn’t
          really give me an answer either. She did tell me that the AMA doesn’t consider it a
          disease so they really don’t put a lot of weight into it. I told her if they got cramps like
          I got they would care very much!

          • looneylucy says:

            I respect and appreciate your sister’s job/opinion. I don’t need the problem to be considered a disease. I’m just wondering why, out of nowhere this thing happens. That’s all.

          • chismosa says:

            Thanks Nancy and Lucy for all the input.

        • Orson says:

          Nothing to apologize for, Lucy. 🙂
          I have “issues” with onions. I finally remembered to mention it to my Dr. She asked me what the symptoms were and I told her “Explosive diarrhea” and she said I didn’t have an allergy, just a sensitivity. And to continue to avoid them.

        On WWHL Andy diplayed a pic of Giggy with his doggie penis on display and save my soul, I can not remember the disparaging remark but it was about Giggys unmentionables. I believe is was a jackhole award..anyone remember? Several of us posted how disgusting that was.

        • VV says:

          How long ago was that? Is Andy at odds with Lisa? I know she does not follow him on Twitter.

          • TexasTart says:

            Surprised I can not remember the specifics of what was said, but it was a regular sbow in the last year. Maybe during your temporary absense from the blog, because many people people on the blog were condemning him for being grossly immature.
            Lisa doesn’thardly follow anyone, does she? Not even all her castmates – last I checked – so I wouldn’t assume that’s why she doesn’t follow Andy (but it would be a good reason!)

            • VV says:

              She used to follow quite a few people. I think she downsized the number of people she follows after the Puerto Rico trip. “I think”.

    • Orson says:

      I guess it’s easier to say she won because she’s black than to accept that she won because she was better than you.

    • I hadn’t heard this but that young lady is so out of line. I’m glad Simone is taking the high road and not acknowledging it. It’s also a completely stupid comment – if anything, Simone was at a disadvantage with her body type and being a power gymnast (as opposed to Kyla Ross who is more elegant). Elegance usually does better internationally (Gabby was more elegant than Jordyn; Nastia was more elegant than Shawn as far as styles go)

    • djprincessc says:

      Hiiii Nancy. LOL. I read it, but sorry I still don’t and will probably or should I say will never believe in Global Warming, lol. I think its just a bunch of propaganda about money. I truly believe that the earth goes through cycles since there was a time where there was such a thing as global cooling. The earth has gone through times of both extreme heat and cold. Other planets are also getting warmer Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto and Mars when men do not occupy them. Just my 2 cents 🙂
