Real Housewives of Atlanta “Bye Bye With the Wind” by NMD

We are on Season Six of the Atlanta Housewives.  This franchise brings in the highest ratings of the series, and I think it’s because they have cast interesting women who know how to bring drama without cutting to the bone.  They fight, they make up.  They lead complex lives.  The men in their lives are supporting characters – and none are particularly abrasive.

We’re down to one original member – NeNe Leakes.  NeNe is the first housewife to really make it outside of the housewife world.  Kandi Burruss has been on since Season Two and is another fan favorite, and the first housewife with bonafide street credentials in the music industry.  Cynthia and Phaedra joined Season Three, and Kenya and Porsha joined last season – and each brought their own brand of crazy.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-6-gallery-episode-601-02Now that Kim has left the franchise, NeNe Leakes is our resident blonde.  She doesn’t even have dark roots, and I have to wonder how much damage that does to her hair.  Maybe it’s a wig?  Wouldn’t that be ironic since she’s given Kim so much grief for her wigs.  NeNe threw herself a multi-million dollar wedding, and now is reaping the fruits of her labor by opening gifts in fancy boxes.  I’m mesmerized by the huge painting of NeNe in their living room.  Oh look – Teresa and Joe Giudice gave NeNe what is my opinion an ugly Hermes plate.  Gregg asks if you can eat off it – and NeNe assures him you can.  Hell no!  Trade that in and take the cash.  NeNe also opens a Tiffany box with a HUGE crystal vase.  I’m pretty sure Kim and Kroy gave that to her.  Gregg reminds NeNe that they are their gifts, as she rummages through the boxes with a huge smile on her face.  They also open Porsha’s gift, and discuss her failed marriage.  I wonder if the collective amount of the gifts is more than NeNe paid for her three dresses.  Doubtful.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-6-gallery-episode-601-05That’s the segway into Porsha’s scene, where she tells us that she has lots of secrets about Kordell that she’s willing to spill if they can’t work things out.  Ummm – like he prefers the gentlemen Porsha?  Everyone but you seems to know that.  She’s so pretty as she cries about wanting to work things out – AKA get a huge alimony check.  She got $5,000 a month.  Not too shabby.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-6-gallery-episode-601-08Speaking of pretty, Cynthia has a huge photo of herself in her modeling agency.  Cynthia’s breasts mesmerize me in her interview – and tell us that it’s time to move and fill up the warehouse space Peter bought without asking her.  Her breasts aren’t too happy.   As they were dismantling things to get ready to move, Kenya just happens to drop by.  Which was strange because they hadn’t seen each other for months and Cynthia thought she was in Africa.  Kenya must have smelled the cameras.

Kenya explains that her eviction (reported in the tabloids) was all blown out of proportion, and then complains that no one reached out to her.  Cynthia says – hello – people were busy.  Phaedra had a baby and Porsha was a little occupied with her divorce.  Kenya whines a little about NeNe inviting Walter to her wedding.  Cynthia (in a talking head with a completely different hairstyle) rolls her eyes and says “good lord.”  Editing much?

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-6-gallery-episode-601-10Phaedra was a great sport and allowed cameras to capture her emergency C-section.  In typical Phaedra style, she makes a lot of dry jokes – quipping that her first recollection of the baby “Mr. President” was that he was quiet (as they show him crying).  She makes sure he has his dingaling and feet, and comments that he’s as white as Michael Jackson.  Fast forward to two months later, and she and Apollo have bought a new house and he’s renovating it.  Phaedra is also trying to show her breasts – but being natural, they are no match for Cynthia’s.  Apollo is wearing a wife-beater and looks hot.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-6-gallery-episode-601-12Finally it’s my girl Kandi’s turn.  Kandi has red curly hair, and a huge smile on her face because Todd put a ring on it.  They talk about Kandi working with Jennifer Hudson.  They have a conversation about Todd’s work, to make sure we understand she isn’t a sugar mama.  Speaking of mamas – mama Joyce doesn’t like Todd much.  Holy crap – her hair is bright red, and long and straight in her talking head.  Wig or extensions??  Now we see a talking head with the curly hair.  The producers aren’t even trying any more.  Todd and Kandi talk about Porsha and Kordell, and Todd points out that their marriage worked until the girls messed it up.  Yeah – I don’t think so Todd, and neither does Kandi.

NeNe takes Porsha out to lunch, because she’s taken her under her wing.  Porsha seems in a good place, and refuses to talk about her problems – but instead congratulates NeNe on her amazing wedding.  I am liking Porsah this year.  NeNe explains that Kenya didn’t RSVP or anything, and NeNe is done with her.  Porsha (like Jason Hoppy) is still wearing her wedding ring out of respect for her vows.

Unfortunately, Porsha’s good mood disappears after their marriage deposition.  Apparently Kordell told the truth – such as how he locked her out of their home, and it was brutal.  It seems as though this was the moment  she realized that the marriage was over.  Really over.  Porsha’s mom is furious.  She says the first time she realized Kordell wasn’t normal was after Porsha had the miscarriage and was in the hospital for a week and he only visited once.  Her mom thinks he just wanted someone on his arm.  Porsha then goes on to explain that she did ask him if he was gay because of the rumors, and was comfortable with his explanation – enough to marry him.  But now she’s questioning things.  The good news is she’s realized that it is over and can get on with her life.

The episode ends with Cynthia hosting the first group party of the season – a black and white party to open her new location.  NeNe arrives and asks if her name is on the list.  Ha. Kenya is the last to arrive and is looking for trouble.  NeNe ignores her.  Phaedra is rescued by Derek J.  Kandi has to leave.  Kenya tries to get a rise out of Porsha, but she doesn’t bite.  Finally Kenya hunts NeNe and Phaedra down and forces them to acknowledge her.  She then gripes about how she was going through things and no one reached out.  NeNe pushes right back.  NeNe tries to storm away, but can barely walk in her high heels.  Kenya follows her and confronts her about inviting Walter to the wedding.  Phaedra is ignoring the whole mess, but says in her talking head that she’ll stay friends with Walter.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-6-gallery-episode-601-28Kenya is really aiming for a fight and is in NeNe’s face.  She grabs NeNe’s ear and tells her to listen.  NeNe controls herself pretty well considering.  She keeps trying to walk away, and Kenya keeps grabbing at her.  I guess she wants to start the season off with a fight.  Obviously no one is falling for her lame attempts at making something out of nothing – and she looks the fool.  And this is why this franchise is my favorite.

Previews show that the season is going to be really really good.  Kordell will be back (didn’t see that coming).   Kenya offers Apollo a blow job, Todd might be cheating, and Peter’s bar is going in to foreclosure.  There is going to be a big fight involving Kenya, and even Kandi is yelling about something.  Wowza.


Real Housewives of Miami – S3Ep13

“Blame It on the Alochol” by HydrangeaHussy

This week the ladies head to Vegas for Joanna’s bachelorette party & then to California for her wedding.  It’s got to be killing Adriana that Bravo chose Joanna’s wedding for the season finale.  I’m not sure how the ratings will be, but there are good lead-ins this week with RHoA premiering Sunday night & RHoBH on Monday.

We begin with Lisa packing for Joanna’s bachelorette & true to form, she’s way over packing.  She says that all of the ladies are going & pats herself on the back for being the “connector.”  Not sure why she needs to be congratulated because I didn’t see her do much to bring the women together.  Lenny is not going to the bachelorette or wedding.  Joanna’s wedding is on a Thursday & Lenny cannot take off work.  I understand that Lisa is upset, but who has a wedding on a Thursday & expects everyone to be able to come?  Oh yeah, the center of the universe, Joanna.  The couple is still having issues because Lisa has not yet had a baby.  Lisa feels that she isn’t holding up her end of their marriage.  Adriana notes that the couple seems to be arguing a lot lately & that their infertility issues are taking a toll.

Adriana is surprised that she was invited, but says that she’ll take the olive branch.  I wonder if this really was an olive branch or whether Bravo forced it in order to have all of the women on the finale.  Both Adriana & Lea hope that this is the beginning of a renewed friendship.  Of course, Joanna feels like she’s entitled to this time in Vegas because she’s been so stressed by the wedding planning.  Again, why doesn’t she have a planner to handle things?  Lea, having to be the center of attention, announces to the whole plane that this is Joanna’s bachelorette.  Lisa hopes that this time alone will help her to relax & plans to get drunk.  We learn that Vegas will be a quick trip, as the ladies leave for San Diego on the following morning.  I’m not sure that having your wild bachelorette on the day before your rehearsal dinner in another city is a good idea.  As stressed as Joanna is, you would think that she would want a little time to settle in & make sure everything is ready.

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-313-06The ladies arrive at the Palms & their suite is beautiful!  It’s one of the upper level suites with an outdoor pool.  They immediately open a bottle of champagne & enjoy the fruit laid out on the bar.  Lea says that she is going try to keep the peace with Adriana but not setting her off.  Lisa takes off to claim the second best room, being a slightly spoiled princess.  She will share with Lea.  Adriana is hot on her tail to get a good room.  They all agree that Joanna, as the bride, needs the best room.  Adriana & Alexia will take another room.  Somehow I doubt that any of the rooms in this suite are “bad.”

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-313-08Everyone gets ready to go the pool – heels, bikinis & tons of jewelry.  Not what I wear to the pool, but whatever.  Lea says that she misses the old Adriana.  It doesn’t seem like Lea has truly moved on.  The pool is packed & the ladies claim a seating area.  Alexia feels a little too old for the young crowd at the pool.  Lea also felt like “an adult at a spring break party.”  You’re at the Palms – that’s exactly what the atmosphere is supposed to be!  Lisa sets out to force the women to let loose with shots of vodka.  Two of Joanna’s friends arrive & the party kicks up.  Lea is surprised when she is asked to dance, but she rolls with it.  Lisa & Adriana agree that Lea is a closet freak.  Adriana notes that Lisa needs to pace herself a little more & Joanna seems annoyed by her drunken antics.  Joanna cuts Lisa off, which Adriana finds surprising given Joanna’s past alcohol problems.  I have to agree with Joanna though; Lisa was getting out of control.

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-313-13Adriana is on her best behavior, but notes the little jabs the Lea throws out.  I’m not sure what else she expected from Lea.  That is Lea’s MO & she obviously hasn’t forgiven Adriana & moved on.  Lea suggests taking the party back to the pool in their suite so that she can have some shade.  It looks really hot outside & I don’t really enjoy the sun either, so I completely understand.  Joanna’s top comes off as soon she gets in the pool.  She then takes off Adriana’s & Alexia’s.  It’s hard to imagine that last season was the brawl & this season they are bumping naked breasts.  Lea stays out of the fray & inside.  She thinks that Adriana is sucking up to Joanna because she needs an ally.  I’m not sure what prompted their friendship, but I hope they’re both sincere.

Joanna is getting ready  for the night & says that she doesn’t want to drink too much.  She has no idea what the plans are.  She’s trying to be responsible because she has her rehearsal dinner.  Joanna points out that Lea isn’t really over the fight with Adriana.  What is going on here?  I’m suddenly agreeing with Joanna!  Joanna thinks that Lea is jealous by her new relationship with Adriana.  Adriana feels that Lea can’t stop making digs & hasn’t truly moved on.  As Joanna says, if you say that you’re moving on then you need to actually move on!  Lisa notes that Lea doesn’t seem to have moved on.

Dinner is served in the suite, complete with penis straws in the drinks.  I’ve just never understood that bachelorette tradition, it just makes everyone uncomfortable.  Joanna notices that something is going with Lisa, causing her to party so much.  The ladies head down to the casino.  Lisa bets on her love’s bday & Lea points out that the two aren’t speaking.  Leave it to Lea to point out their troubles & try to bring Lisa down.  It’s the same thing she did with Marysol.  Lisa quickly becomes a hot mess, chewing out another patron for smoking near her.  Alexia says that she was really enjoying the girls’ trip.  Out of all of the ladies, she probably needs a vacation more than anyone.  Lea starts to loosen up a little at the poker table.

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-313-11Back to the suite for a penis piñata.  Lisa is “super drunk,” in her own words.  At least she recognizes it.  She is really getting on my nerves in this episode.  I typically love her, but she needs to chill!  Lisa’s big surprise is a party bus to take them around town, complete with poles & male strippers.  The guys immediately focus on Joanna & Lea.  Lea doesn’t seem too excited to have a man grinding hit butt in her face.  I’ve never seen the appeal of strippers, but at least these are better than the ones at Tamra’s party.  The guys sit down & Lisa takes the pole.  Lea says that she looks way too comfortable there, another little dig from Lea.  Adriana & Lisa have a pole dance-off, which ends with Adriana grinding on Lisa.  This is a stereotypical Vegas bachelorette party.  Lisa is out of control!  Her dancing is just trashy.  She’s going to regret all of those drinks in the morning!

real-housewives-of-miami-season-3-gallery-episode-313-19The girls hit a club for more drinks & some dancing.  Joanna says that her bachelorette is turning out to be amazing.  Back on the bus, Lisa drunk dials Lenny.  Joanna, in her TH, says that she thinks Lisa is scared because she doesn’t have anything without Lenny.  That was a little harsh to say about your BFF Joanna!  I know that Lisa, unlike the other women, doesn’t really have a career of her own right now, but she did at one point.  Joanna talks to the driver & then announces that Lisa could have a career pole dancing on the bus.  I don’t know why she has to be so mean to her friend, who’s obviously going through a rough patch & is very drunk.  Joanna continues insulting Lisa by asking what she does with her day – sit at home & shop?  Just because it’s her bachelorette doesn’t give her the right to be a b*tch.  Joanna then wonders why Lisa strikes back by calling Joanna a whore.  Joanna continues with her argument that Lisa married for money.  This is what Joanna does, she throws out insults & then gets mad when someone retaliates.  Alexia tries to settle Lisa down, but Lisa only gets more angry.  Most of us have had that experience, trying to calm down a very inebriated person who is out of control.  I think that Lisa is going to watch this later & be embarrassed by her behavior.

    Happy Monday! Thanks for the blogs NMD and HH. Ooooo Atlanta is going to be good!

    Jill, today is Bethenny’ s birthday! Hope you have fun on the show. Can’t wait to hear about it.

    • California35 says:

      She is going? Cool!

      Good morning – saw parts of Atlanta. The girl getting a divorce is beautiful. Nene and the others seem to try to avoid drama with Kenya, but Kenya keeps on trying to bring the drama. Annoying!

    • chismosa™ says:

      She goes tomorrow. I’m keeping tabs on her

    • chismosa™ says:

      She goes tomorrow. I’m keeping tabs on her

      Plus I don’t think Beth tapes live-to-day. Maybe for her BIRTHDAY WHICH we all know she LOVES celebrating !

      🙄 infinity
      Will she run into a bathroom during taping to cry? 😭😪😩

      • chismosa™ says:

        Sorry for double post

      • VV™ says:

        True! Bethenny “claims” she hates celebrating her Birthday or at least hated that Jason celebrated her Birthday that she approved to have filmed on her TV show that she was the Executive Producer 🙄 🙄
        She never liked mixing her “high class” friends with “country folks” like Jason’s family and friends. Who can forget Jason buying her diamond earring from a non well known jewelry designer or jewelry store. That was a big no no and source of embarrassment for Bethenny.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Plus it was a jewelry place B herself introduced J to.

          It makes no sense to be someone who doesn’t like your birthday and then to make some big deal for it … Unless your birthday falls in sweeps month!! Yay!! 😋

          VV eagle eyes 👀🔍on her twitter for any funny looking men’s legs walking around st Bart’s……

          • VV™ says:

            No no. Jason didn’t get them from the jeweler she featured on the show several times. She taught him eventually where to go to get her appropriate jewelry. The diamond earring he got her on the Bday party from hell came from unknown jeweler. The following season, he knew where to go.
            You know those country folks are not trained in the ways of Upper East Side residents 🙄

            • chismosa™ says:

              Oh boy you’re good I could have sworn all gifts came from that place. … I mean

              And upper east side became too uncool for her. It’s where she starved don’t forget.

          • Powell says:

            I think she like celebrating her BD but I don’t think she likes how Jason wanted to celebrate it. Big difference IMO.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Chismosa, I thought that was odd as well. Bethenny kept saying ad nauseum how much she hated her birthday and never wanted to celebrate it. She shares her birthday with her mother. She was so incredibly rude about it when Jason had a party to celebrate it. I remember her constantly saying everybody doesn’t have to like their birthdays.

        Now she will celebrate?

        • chismosa™ says:

          Oh PVS sorry to be so bad about it I know you like her so much.
          I don’t know how big a deal they’ll make really. ?
          To be honest.

          Maybe just have a “panel” to discuss birthday “issues” people have.
          I hope you get tickets to go see her like Jill does. I know you like her. 🙂

          Ps hope you are feeling better ?

          • plainviewsue says:

            My feelings about Bethenny have changed over the years. I watch her show & enjoy her for the most part. But there have been disappointments.

            I wonder if they just did Bethenny Getting Married and then didn’t do seasons of Bethenny Ever After if their marriage would of had a shot. How do you get married, have a baby and have cameras on your marriage 24/7?

            Haven’t watched the birthday episode yet. Not even trying for tickets. I met her once at a book signing. That was enough!

          • plainviewsue says:

            Thanks Chismosa for asking. It’s been a crazy road with this bladder infection. Too much to write. But I am hoping I’m finally seeing the light.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I am not crazy about my birthday either. I think I have a dark cloud over it from childhood…since President Kennedy was assassinated on my 3rd bday. (Note there are two asses in that word). Of course, the intensely sad news of it was diluted over time; but now we (my siblings actually) make jokes about it and will call and sing to me “Happy Birthday to you, even though our beloved democratic president was assassinated on your 3rd birthday, Happy Birthday to you even though you try to pretend it’s not a sad day, but it really is….” so THEY ARE HILARIOUS.

          • chismosa™ says:


            So by my calculation….. You’ll be 33 this year right ?

          • Powell says:

            Ugh Lainey.

          • ladebra says:

            Wow Lainey — I would never date you (hahaha). That used to be my sneaky way of finding out how old a guy was. If I asked, “Where were you when JFK was shot?” and I got a blank stare before they thought of something to say, or they said, I wasn’t born yet, lol, I knew they were too young. Sometimes, it didn’t matter, but at least I knew. haha.

        • Powell says:

          Remember she had no problem celebrating it w/JZ & a friend of her dad’s that gave her the inappropriate gift at lunch? JZ did get in her nerves by keeping on asking her to open her gifts. But other than that she was ok about it.

    • BB says:

      I think JNNTJ is going to the taping tomorrow, but not sure.

      • not THAT Jill™ says:

        Yes I’m going tomorrow

        • ladebra says:

          Uh oh, well, then you are going on MY birthday! Hahaha, still can’t wait to hear!

          • chismosa™ says:

            Happy Birthday! Love scorpios ♏️

            (Sorry DJ)

            • djprincessc says:

              I don’t like Scorpio men!! To date them! hhahahahahha..whenever a guy tells me he’s a scorpio I always run the other way. Miss you Chismosa!! xo!

        • plainviewsue says:

          Be sure to let us know when it airs!!! I DVR the show every day. I do FF thru some of it. Hopefully you will be on camera!!

          • not THAT Jill™ says:

            I will give a full report-I’m sure chismosa and VV will be awaiting my recap!!! I hope something worth of reporting happens while I’m there-when I went to other tapings of shows it was kind of boring…

  2. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. You know what I just decided? I’m calling Monday’s Bottom Lip
    Morning cuz I know my bottom lip & many of yours was dropping cuz you didn’t want to get up & go to work. 🙂 But Ladebra said Happy Monday so now we shall go w/that. 🙂 I hope your smiling & saying “Powell is crazy”. Ha.
    I’m surprised I watched as much of RHs as I did but I still have to rewatch. So Kenya’s storyline will be all about Walter huh? For someone claiming her ex is stalking her, she’s
    sure obsessed w/him. And I guess the closet was opened about Cordell. If its true its sad he would use Porsha as his beard. Not good at all. Well you lovely people have a great day.

    • ladebra says:

      omg Powell, I just had to talk myself into getting ready. I really really wanted the day off lol. Happy bottom-lip day!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      There’s a part of me that feels badly for Kordell. He’s been battling these rumors for many years. If it’s true I wish he’d just come out. He does not seem the type to get desperate or depressed like Taylor’s late hubby; but I guess he never should have gone on the RHOA in the first place with this particular skeleton. Perhaps he thought that by showcasing his marriage those rumors would go away.

      • Powell says:

        If its true I feel bad for the fact that he has felt he had to hide it for whatever reason cuz that’s just not fair that societal & family hangups hold people back from being their true self. But I don’t like that used Porsha. Again if true she’s wasted 5 or so yrs. That’s not fair to her.

  3. chismosa™ says:

    ashy/ Arsenio Hall better thank her lucky stars for this Kordell drama because that secured her spot on this season IMHO. yes I think in a weird infantile way she loved him but she is dumb dumb dumb. Where is her father ?? How and why is she picking such an awful man!?
    Ps Her mom was gorgeous ! 
    I can’t take her preachy way of speaking. Like she’s at the pulpit. Calm down Ashy 🙏
    For DJ— I’m so happy that Kandi’s “oh ohhhhhhh” is out of her intro ! 🙌
    Anyone else find it very shady that peter, YET AGAIN, used Cynthia’s (and his- joint) money to purchase / change something without telling her first ? What kind of marriage is that? 
    I mentioned this to Powell- late – but the Walter issue – nene is free to invite whoever she wants but were she and Greg friends with the tow truck driver before and longer than with Kenya? If so, I understand her inviting him. Otherwise – it was to ruffle feathers. 
    Thanks for the recaps NMD!!
    Miami quickie question:
    Can anyone tell me why HO got married on a Thursday ? Apart from a very strict jewish orthodox wedding I have never heard of such a thing 
    Amber you were right -sorry! —- Lisa acted like trash here. I am not going to blame alcohol. She has her own issues and demons and the alcohol brought them out
    Loved Alexia- “well I don’t know are you a man- the way you speak !?!?!” I can see that being said in Spanish and in English it came out even funnier. Love Alexia. 

    • not THAT Jill™ says:

      IDK why she got married on a Thursday but I remember when Mariah Carey married that Tommy whatshisname it was on a Tuesday-the reason I remember is that it hougt it was so crazy-who has a big wedding like that on a Tuesday night?
      Poor Ashy-she is dumb but something about her makes me like her…plus I think she has a WIG line out and all the ATL ladies are wearing her WIGS!! Cynthia had a WIG from Ashy Line on when she was working her Dinaha Carroll Look on WWHL…
      I think Peter is very shady-I don’t trust that fool!!

      • chismosa™ says:

        I totally agree about peter.

        Boy everyone’s got a wig line out. Sherri shepherd, WW, Portia, WIG! herself, I’m surprised Kandi didn’t come out with one first. Or nene.

        Ashy- you better have some big questions lined up for your appearance tomorrow!!! I hope you participate !

      • VV™ says:

        Tommy Motola

      • mariareads says:

        Peter has always been shady in my opinion. And controlling. And an opportunist. Even when he appears to be saying something nice I just don’t buy it. Just irks me because I like Cynthia, for the most part. I really don’t understand her attraction to him.

      • Powell says:

        I’ve had that same feeling about Peter. Just hope Cynthia has some money that he knows nothing about.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Porsha said she heard rumors about Kordell before the marriage,…but I think she heard the $16M (his net worth) even louder. All she did was brag last year about her marriage and their wealth so…whatevs. NOW, she says he didn’t want her body during their marriage,…but she wasn’t saying that last year. She was frontin’ like they had such a hot marriage. My theory is that the sex braggarts are overcompensating for not doing it.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      I told you Chismosa… she was exhausting to watch. The over imbibing of alcohol was just the cherry atop a whole mountain of shite!

    • Powell says:

      Chismosa her mom is a gorgeous lady. She seems supportive. Walter. I don’t recall.if they were friends prior. I do believe that last season after they broke up the guys invited him to ruffle Kenya’s feathers. But either way she needs to get over it. She cares more about him than he does her.

    • djprincessc says:

      OMG I was totally waiting to see if they were still going to play Kandi’s dreadful Ohhhhh Ohhhhhs!! I was like YES!! Thank you!!! Then I remembered how you hated it too. Now I don’t have to scramble for my control!! Yay for us!!! 🙂

  4. plainviewsue says:

    Finally RHOBH begins tonight. I don’t watch Atlanta or Miami, so I feel left out 😦

    Did anyone catch the First Look of BH? I don’t watch Vanderpump Rules. I tried the first episode, and it was not for me. No matter how much I love Lisa; I thought it was awful. I guess I’ll watch tonight since it’s a crossover episode.

  5. Why isn’t anyone talking about Walking Dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Who the hell is Rick to judge / banish my favorite warrior woman – Carol. I truly thought she’d just kill him and head back by herself. He’s turned in to someone who is scared of his own shadow.

    • chismosa™ says:

      NMD let’s talk about this.

      There was a guy on WWH & he’s a respected tv critic – and he said his scoop was that a beloved character was leaving a very popular show to do another show.
      I thought immediately WD. Now, the Asian guy- sorry I blank on names if it’s not Darryl- he is sick so I thought it was him.

      So carol’s gone ?

      I agree with you. Not fair. He should have loyalty to carol who stuck with him during his schizoid times.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Ps is Michonne being set up to be a love interest for Darryl?

        • No. I will not accept that hypothesis. It will be just like when Darryl had to leave because of Meryl, she’ll come back and Rick will accept her with open arms.

          I could take anyone but Darryl, Glen, or Carol leaving/dying.

          PS – Michonne flirting was creepier than the walkers.
          PSS – How hot was Darryl when he chest butted the new guy with the affinity for alcohol. Yummy.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Gotcha. It was a big deal when the original show producer / creator left after S1 I think? (Frank Darabont) and then the actor who plays Shane left to follow the guy to his new show on TNT- Mob City?? It’s coming up soon. I think that’s why Shane had to leave so soon. 

            I dreeeeam of Daryl. I rewound that like 5x lol! The actor Norman Reedus- Darryl- said he doesn’t think Daryl’s ready yet for that sort of thing. I get it. 

            Interesting they address that addiction will be there with zombies or not. 

            I’m not sure I can get used to a “happy” Michonnne. Ha

          • Powell says:

            NMD I will not accept that either. It has to be Carol.

    • BB says:

      As far as the Walking Dead is concerned, nothing that happens surprises me. It’s what it’s all about. I expect it. I like seeing the main characters evolve or de-evolve into different people because of what they are experiencing. The only one I would probably be really upset about being killed off is Daryl.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        The evolution of the core group has been fascinating to watch. It is too difficult to invest in any new character as many are dispatched in the same episode they appear in! Carol and Daryl have parallel evolutions from abusive relationships to finding their new and stronger selves. I would be upset if either of them were being written off the show. This Rick the Despot story arc is a perfect exit for Carol and Daryl – maybe they are going to the new spin off??

      • Powell says:

        I’ll be upset if any of the main characters are killed off.

    Good Mornin, Good Mornin!!!!!!
    One quick question??
    What the heck was that last night when Kenya told Andy she didn’t
    RSVP for NeNe’s wedding because she wasn’t going??? She said
    “RSVP” is only for when you are going, and challenged Andy to prove
    her wrong!!! The look on Andy’s face (and mine, I’m quite sure-)
    was of absolute stunned disbelief—–
    He just totally gave up and backed off, he couldn’t even be bothered
    at that point…………..

    • chismosa™ says:

      Kyle corrected her on twitter …..

      Ps y’all I think I saw that Kyle and Lisa are on a morning show today.
      They’re ok with eachother ? I think they’re both in ny.
      Interesting that only lisa is on WWH tonight

      • ladebra says:

        They are both on The View

        • plainviewsue says:

          Just watched them on The View. The Mauricio possibly cheating was what was discussed. You know I love my Lisa, but in the clip that was shown, she was out of line. Mauricio was taking Portia out, and Lisa said something to the effect that maybe that’s what the rumors are about him being seen with a younger woman. You don’t say that in front of a child. Damn Lisa, you made me agree with Kyle. I don’t want to agree with Kyle!!!!! Kyle and Carlton are not friends. Brad Garrett was the guest co host. He was hysterical. He insinuated these HW’s show ruin television. In a joking way.

    • ladebra says:

      Kenya is a fool. RSVP means respond please.

      And you need to respond yes or no.

      • Powell says:

        Right. What did she do w/her invite then? Just look at it? If you don’t respond how do the hosts know how many people are coming? If you have food how do they know how much food will be needed? I have a feeling her parties aren’t successful.

    • Kenya is an interesting person. I assume she does things like that for the shock value, and not because she’s stupid.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Ding Ding Ding

        • TexasTart says:

          I heard the ding, ding, ding and naturally had to come find out what was going on 😉

          Oh yes, what NMD said – I could not agree more!

          • ladebra says:

            I agree, she does things for shock — but I also think she’s just a fool ! I mean come on …. Walter? Donkey-bootie-with-the-fake-butt-at-the-charity? I’m-very-happy-with-my-African-gazillionaire?

      • BB says:

        I don’t watch Atlanta, but Kenya is kind of Omarosa-like – no?

      • shamrockblonde says:

        RSVP is short for, “Respondez, s’il vous plait,” which means, simply, “Please respond” in French. That means you should respond either way, whether you’re able to make it or not, and I agree with NMD – Kenya is a lot of things, but stupid and ignorant are not either of them – this is all manufactured drama –

        • mariareads says:

          Agree with the Kenya is a lot of things. I fell asleep after 10 minutes of Miami last night and came home a bit ago and watched WWHL I recorded. While watching Kenya I really felt like I wanted to just call in and tell her off. She is so vain and self centered and actually believes the idiotic things she says. Like the RSVP issue. I couldn’t believe it. What she does is say things with conviction and as if she is lecturing people. Some are stunned and say nothing. I think she’s nuts. Also this Walter thing. What story would she have if she didn’t have the Walter issue? I can’t see anything other than her Miss Whatevers of 1990 something. She is good at staying on HW of Atlanta and bringing the drama so that she can have a job. Good grief. I said it. Guess it’s not secret I cannot stand Kenya but I do enjoy the clouds of drama she brings. UGH. Hanging head in shame.

      • Skinny Orson says:

        I say she can be both.

    • Powell says:

      Why put RSVP on an invite then? So I hope she throws a party this season & the ladies don’t RSVP her & just toss the invite.

    Amazing Race anyone? Marie is a dirty player. Yes it’s a game and a race and all, but taking another couple’s taxi? Low down dirty play. Goes to show that they have to play dirty to get ahead. The drs. didn’t take the cab (although they could have) and won the leg of the race anyhow.

    Couldn’t believe I read yesterday that NeNe and Greg are already in trouble not paying taxes. She bragged and bragged about how rich she is and we all know, those who brag about money, typically never have it. She needs to return some of those high $ gifts and get straight with the fed govn’t/uncle sam. If you google Greg, looks like he has always been a con man. Just so sick of all the fake trash. Lisa on the Miami show is a accused of looking for drugs in Vegas during the Bach party – I believe I read that it comes up on their reunion and she is suing Joanna for talking about it? I thought the bravo gals couldn’t sue each other while employed? Ugh – I am afraid BevHills is gonna go downhill now too. So much for having Bravo on 24/7 like in the good ol days. Now I just read about the shows, rarely watch.

  10. ladebra says:

    I don’t watch WD. It was one of those I-watch-too-much-tv decisions. Same reason I missed BB 😕 but I plan to catch them on marathons!

    I am not watching Masters of Sex, but I did want to mention that when Masters and Johnson began their research, the attitudes about sex were very different. It really wasn’t until the birth control pill became widly available that women could engage in sex without the fear of getting pregnant. FDA approved the pill in 1957 but only in limited cases. The pill became widely available in 1960. It was in the 60’s that women had the freedom to make their own choices. Sometimes we forget how far women have come. #respect all those who did the hard work

    • chismosa™ says:

      Your point on the pill- makes Virginia (And some other gals she worked with) seem quite sexually irresponsible. Especially as she was a single mom with two kids. One thinks she’d be super super careful.
      You’re totally right.

    • Lulu says:

      Nothing puts a damper on a “sex” life like the idea/fear of getting pregnant. When you are not at that point in your life. I’m curious as to a part of the issues of sex/intimacy. Is from the fear of impregnating your spouse. With birth control that fear is gone and you take more risks hence more of an….. enjoyable experience.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Oh and I have up on The Blacklist like for you said— too much tv to decide on!

      • chismosa™ says:

        Gave up

        • Lulu says:

          Chismosa!! MOS is soo much more interesting! I know it’s about sex but their is a larger picture then the act. I do like the character development and the overall atmosphere from the clothing to the furniture. All around it’s very interesting and fun to dissect!

          • chismosa™ says:

            Lulu I know ……I’m quite behind on the episodes.

            Also I don’t think the furniture is very accurate. This is the Midwest, the furniture looks more recent than Don draper’s 1964 manhattan apartment.
            Inaccurate IMO. Because I know the creator of Mad Men is very anal and exacting about his accuracy to the time period.

            I’ll keep you aBREAST as I watch more to catch up to you.

      It’s unfortunate so many want to take those rights we have away. And the shameful thing

    Bravo is throwing so much housewives at the viewers that they are going into overload!
    The rotation we were familiar with is gone, as the anticipation of a new season for any given franchise. BravoAndy has lost his mind as well as his control over programming.
    LOL, last night I watched the Blackhawks game, The Walking Dead/Talking Dead, Alaska, The Final Frontier, The Witches of East End and caught snippets of RHoA and RHoM during commercial breaks from the other shows.
    RHoA – Porsha has a real storyline but Kenya is dead weight. Nene has rules and those who ignore them will be chastised. Kandi and her mother doesn’t like her fiancé storyline – been there, done that. Cynthia still thinks her marriage is all that and a bag of chips but won’t tell her husband what is bothering her. And Phaedra/Apollo still crack me up!
    RHoM – lost interest….again.

    • BB says:

      Agree. Bravo is rolling them out too fast (with the exception of New York). But as long as those rating stay up, Bravo doesn’t care.

  15. VV™ says:

    Oh, for the love of Pete!
    Kyle on the view playing victim. If this is the reason she got mad at Lisa. She’s gonna get more haters…
    Rumors about Mauricio Flirting/Cheating had been ON FILM since S1. Camille Grammer had a scene about it and it was further discussed.

    Mauricio told Kyle he was going somewhere with Porsche and Lisa was in the kitchen which them and said something like … Maybe this is the reason why they say you’re with younger woman. (Paraphrasing )

    Kyle took offense to that 🙄 🙄

    • T-Rex says:

      Agreed! The whole incident as you said has been brought up since Season 1, and CamiliaTwoFaceBeyotch, even insinuated that the rumor has been out there for some time, and we must remember that Murray had been their real estate agent for years before HW. So now you want to do a take-down on Lisa, for repeating what everyone has been saying for years. Oh and if this is what gets you and STFUBrandi together, well then you can both sink like the Titantic this season, cause that’s where I see this whole storyline going.

      • VV™ says:

        Kyle has been wanting to take Lisa down for some time. She will never forget Lisa for the public humiliation her other “sister” Faye Resnik went through. She wants to make sure she’s the star of RHOBH because in case you don’t know SHE WAS BORN AND RAISED ON BH! She founded the town, she planned the streets, she build the hills one shovel at a time. She IS BEVERLY HILLS….not some British lady who stole her show.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Oops. Should of kept reading the blog, till I posted upwards!

      VV, like I said in my post. Don’t want to defend Kyle. But I still think that was wrong of Lisa to say in front of Portia.

      • VV™ says:

        Sure, it was inappropriate not that Porsha knows what they were talking about. Lisa didn’t say your dad is cheating. She said to Kyle or Mauricio something in the lines of … Maybe this is why they say he is with younger woman or you are with younger woman. I can’t remember which. Either way I seriously doubt Porsha knew what they were talking about. I wonder if off camera Lisa and Kyle talked about the cheating rumors in front of Porsha. It seems to me Kyle was very concerned about the “on camera aspect of it”
        Porsha is a smart little girl and can be seeing on Intagram mocking Lisa’s accent on several videos. I doubt she understood anything special because she was probably paying more attention to the camera crew, boom mike guy and the production people we don’t see when they film scenes.

      • T-Rex says:

        Personally, I would doubt that Portia understood or even took note of the comment as she is too young, and I don’t think Lisa said it out of malice. But I guess it is appropriate to have a twitter account in her name, with all the twatter wars and stuff said out there, it’s great that you get your kids name out there, so when they are older they can find all the stuff said about them and to them. Oh, and it’s also appropriate at Portia’s birthday to serve copious amounts of alcohol, and serve one guest so much that she got so drunk and loud she caused a scene yeah talkin about you ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealinLoserLypsMcgee, oh and you let this person live with you, and I am sure that wasn’t the first time she was a drunken mess in front of your kids @@. VileKyle seems to pick and choose what she gets mad about depending on who she is sidling up to in the current filming season.

        • VV™ says:

          That was my whole point all this big fuzz about nothing. Kyle and Lisa where on one side of the kitchen. Mauricio and Porsha on another. They have microphones on so we hear it all full on.

          This is all gonna fall flat on Kyle. I guess she couldn’t come up with a better story line…

          • mariareads says:

            I have had British friends and their humor is either non-existant or sarcastic like Lisa’s. I get it when she says something humorous that is sarcastic. That type of humor can be taken in the wrong way, most often when it is written but when face to face I have always understood it as humorous remarks. We are all different but seems to me if you have no reason to be offended you might not take it seriously. That said, I do understand how some things can be taken badly and Lisa is not always wise to snark but by now doesn’t Kyle know that Lisa has that snarky kind of humor? Besides, the Mauricio issue of cheating gets Kyle a story line. Really, what would it be if not for her sister’s substance abuse and Mauricio’s alleged cheating? For me, that she is friends with Faye Resnick speaks volumes about Kyle. I wouldn’t be anywhere near that viper. BH is a favorite of mine. Maybe because OC was my fav long ago, before the HW’s on it were the low lives they seem to feature now. Gretchen and Tamara? Really? Oh well.

            • ladebra says:

              I was just thinking this Maria! Every Brit I know has a very dry sense of humor, if they have one at all. And Kyle has supposedly been around Lisa lots, she knows this. And she’s misguided if she thinks we can’t see through her ploy. SMH.

              • not THAT Jill™ says:

                The problem I have with Lisa bringing up the cheating rumor has nothing to do with humor and Portia-if the kid wasn’t there it still would have been mean and bitchy of her to bring it up. Lisa knows this game better than anyone-once you give a little life to these rumors while filming they take off. She has to know by now that saying it on camera gives it life-so I wonder why? What does Lisa gain by Kyle looking like a fool? Is it payback? Maybe-but that’s still mean and underhanded.

                • VV™ says:

                  Lisa said on The View that her and Kyle were interviewed 3 days before they shot that scene about Mauricio’s infidelity and Lisa said that she CATEGORICALLY denied them.
                  Kyle knew what she was doing because her complain came in the form of TALKING HEAD.
                  Instead of using the opportunity to put the rumors to rest. She decided to play victim. Sorry not buying Kyle’s crap.

            • VV™ says:

              … but by now doesn’t Kyle know that Lisa has that snarky kind of humor?


              Very true!

  17. not THAT Jill™ says:

    I just watched Lisa and Kyle on The View…I remember now why I never watch The View…

    Lisa brought up the Mauricio cheating rumor in a clip they showed-and she did it in front of Kyles daughter Portia-not cool Lisa!! I got the impression that Kyle didn’t want to give life to the rumors by bringing them up on film…kind of like Teresa not wanting to talk about jail on film. I wonder why, if their cast,ages know this, they bring it up anyway? It’s mean and dirty…

    • Hmmmm.. Queen Lisa of Vanderpump doing something shady… Imagine that 😯

I’ll watch just or snark fun but I couldn’t care any less who gets along with whom. Besides, BH is the only one I have seen from the beginning but I am not expecting them to stray very far from the HoWives formula.

          • TexasTart says:

            Geez MTH. I can not imagine how you have become so jaded! [sarcasm]

            • Can’t imagine, Huh? Well, first, I don’t think any of these people are as special as they think they are. Second and especially with last season’s 182 week long BH infomercial pushing LVP’s new venture and Morris’s real estate business, all disguised and masked in some bullshit drama lawsuits over someone’s surrogacy, I just can’t appreciate or buy what these people are selling any more.. Boat, waterskis, ramp, shark.. Oh, let’s not forget about the lemondrop and her damn trees and Kim’s shitty smelling pillow..

      • not THAT Jill™ says:

        I know right…

    • BB says:

      It’s already been brought up on film several times, by Camille and Brandi. So now Lisa is the big bad guy for mentioning it? Why bring it up? To create a storyline they can drag out all season long.

      • VV™ says:

        Ding Ding Ding Ding ! ! !

      • not THAT Jill™ says:

        I thought it was shitty of Camille to say anything about it too-especially in light of knowing it was her husband who was running around on her. Of course Lisa brought it up for a storyline-it just makes her look small and silly though since she brought it up in front of the kid and she often acts like she is above all that rumor crap. As for Brandi saying things about anyone’s marriage-it’s her thing-she talks crap all the time. Doesn’t make it right-just makes her Brandi!

        • BB says:

          The reason I think Camille and Brandi mentioned it is because they were probably tired of Kyle acting like she had the perfect marriage (and they were hearing something different) while they both had to deal with cheating spouses, i.e., misery loves company. Not saying it’s right, just saying that might be the reason. As for Lisa, a little payback for Kyle’s not having Lisa’s back in the past? Say something for drama purposes and see where it leads? Who knows.

      • storyline they can drag out all season long

        Drag out being the key phrase..

      • T-Rex says:

        BB I will be interested to see the actual “context” or the “scene” to see if Portia is actually even in ear shot, which I don’t believe she was, and at five, I don’t think she would have understood the joke either. If she did, then VileKyle has more things than the joke to worry about. I would also like to point out that for some reason some folks are under the impression Lisa leaked info to the press about this, she didn’t. The women that Murray ‘hit-on’ were the ones that went straight to the tabloids after they had their encounter with Murray.

        • VV™ says:

          I thought Porsha was but Lisa was talking to Kyle on one side of the Kitchen and Mauricio and Porsha were on the other side. Porsha wasn’t even paying attention to the conversation she was being a kids and looking at Mauricio and grabbing his arm. I seriously doubt the kid understood what was said. Bravo cut to Kyle TH complaining about it. If Kyle was smart and we know she’s not, she would have laughed it off and done with it. (Lisa would have) but Lisa gets called chess player for that.
          I go back to this is the only story line that Kyle and Producers could come up for her.

          • not THAT Jill™ says:

            Lisa knew what she was doing-but I like that plays it off like it was joke…she is so witty

            • LaineyLainey says:

              As opposed to not ever knowing what she’s doing? I don’t think she ever portrayed herself as the innocent witless doof. She knows and is aware. Of most things at most times. And she’s witty.

              • not THAT Jill™ says:

                Oh I agree that Lisa always knows what she is doing and did not mean as opposed to anything. She is smart and witty…and a wonderful chess player-from what I hear.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Have any of them ever even played chess? LOL!!!

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Hey Jnntjill…I said as opposed to because you said Lisa knows what she is doing in an accusatory way as though there is something sinister in knowing what you are doing. She does seem to know what she does. But what I didn’t know and next time I shd butt out that you were talking about Lisa saying she’s joking about something and you implying it wasn’t an innocent joke, she KNEW it would rock the boat. So sorry..I jumped in without really understanding the context of ya’lls comments. I will say this…People should not joke with those who dislike one. Because nothing u say will make them laugh and further, they will read more into everything u say.

            • VV™ says:

              I am sure by the time of the comment. The cast already had the script for each Housewife. Production discusses with the cast where each and everyone person on the cast story goes each year.

      No idea how thery can say some if those lines with a straight face!!!! I watched the Michael Sheen Lizzi Caplan interviews. Would you say Virginia Johnson was a secure woman?

      • Nancy says:

        As far as any emotionally repressed woman is. What is your definition of secure?

        • lulu says:

          Comfortable with herself no body issues. I’m bewildered why Lizzy Caplan took this role. She has body issues/insecurities. During her sex scenes she was so uncomfortable that she refused certain castmembers to be present while filming.

          • Nancy says:

            Well wouldn’t you be? lol I think most actors would be thrilled to get this part. No?
            As the season goes on I think casting her was the right choice. Poor Libby. I wonder
            how she finds out about her husband and Virginia? Could you imagine facing that?
            I don’t think I would have liked either of them if I had known them for real. I wonder
            what happened to Libby and her life when all of this settled down?

            I’m off to a memorial service. 😦 A lovely man and he will be missed by many.)
            Catch you later.

            • lulu says:

              Oh no Nancy sorry to hear about that.

            • lulu says:

              Imo I wouldn’t sign up for something that I am uncomfortable with. She knew what she was signing up for. There is no excuse with “comfort” maybe awkward the first time.

              We already know in real life they have children. So I think Libby focused all her energy on them not the Dr. Does she find out about the affair? And does she really care?

              • Nancy says:

                Thanks Lulu. It’s my sisters BIL. He fell down his stairs hurt his head and went into a coma. Then his organs started shutting down. They ended up pulling the plug. 😦

                Don’t you think all actors are uncomfortable doing sex scenes? I would be but at times
                it’s part of the job.
                I’m going to dig into Libby’s past. I’ll let you know.

  20. TexasTart says:

    Yo JILL! You should swing by this after Bethenny! 😛

    • not THAT Jill™ says:

      Oh I wish!! I think she will be at the Costco near me sometime this month-I will try to go then!!

      • TexasTart says:

        Come to think of it, good for Ramona getting her product in Costco has to be a big deal. Good for Ramona.

        Hope you have a good time at the Bethanny taping tomorrow. I look forward to hearing about your experience!

        • not THAT Jill™ says:

          Thanks Tartsy!!!

        • ladebra says:

          Very good for Ramona! Costco has more red tape – they want all companies they deal with to go through a social audit, and if she gets her wine bottled in Italy that bottler will need to pass a social audit, and they want this certification, and that certification, etc etc. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, it’s just red tape. But everyone does it because those Costco’s can push product like crazy. Good for Ramona!

  21. VV™ says:

    ( git to skinny up thread)

    Yes, Lisa does. According to Kyle she’s like Bobby Fisher. That proves my point the Queen is very very smart! 👸

    • TexasTart says:

      I wonder who’s the best at checkers? 😉

    • not THAT Jill™ says:

      I thought you said she had no time to play games? I have never said the Queen wasn’t smart-I have always said she is the smartest b/c she plays so well that people don’t even notice she is playing. She not only plays the game-she makes the rules.

  22. TexasTart says:

    Walking Dead – I’ve watched a part of last year (in a marathon) and the first 2 episodes this season. I take this as a tale of survival with rich characters and that is the draw to this show. The survival aspect is the draw for me. But I get zombie weary. Where do all these dang slaughtered zombies go? Have they EVER done a body haul? I don’t get how they aren’t piled 20 feet high at the fence. Zombies don’t eat zombies, right?

    And where are the birds? Was that ever explained, or is it assumed they’re all dead too? I guess it would be too challenging to have birds in the first place, but just curious if they were ever shown or other animals. (I saw what happened to the pigs 😦 )

  23. I am excited for Beverly Hills tonight!!! There are so many I don’t watch, NJ, ATL, Miami, OC, so I feel like FINALLY!!!!!!

    And Mariareads, I agree, Kyle has no storyline, never has had one of her own…..

    • mariareads says:

      Princess, I’m happy to have a friend on the BH’s bench. It can get lonely sitting here ; )

      • cusi77 says:

        Mariareads, you are not alone, I am excited as well for BH coming back, I hope to not get too pissed for the Bravo editors insulting the viewers’ intelligence like they did with NJ recently… I will be here to chat and have fun at 7 Central time.

        Hi, PP!!! Hope you are well!

        • mariareads says:

          Plenty of room on the bench cusi! We’ll have wine while we watch. I am very lucky these days. Since moving back to CT one of my best friends who lives in the next town over finally admitted that she loves her Bravo HW’s shows. That makes 2 people in my face to face life who will admit to watching LOL!!!

      • BB says:

        You have plenty of company mariareads. I have been waiting oh so long for one I like to wtch.

      • I hope I am not too disappointed and I am looking forward to NY!!!

    • T-Rex says:

      I am curious as to how much they exploit SpaceCadetKim’s daughter’s mental health issues.

  24. TexasTart says:

    Excellent Recaps – NMD and HydrangeaHussy! Thank you very much. 🙂

    • cusi77 says:

      Ditto!!! I did say it earlier but I think I will never thank you enough for everything you do for us! ((((NMD and HH))))

  25. mariareads says:

    Ummm…watching Miami before throwing dinner in the oven. Lots of breasticles all over the place. Lea’s face during the LV trip is priceless. Don’t we always have a trip or two during these shows now where we get the snark attacks and the odd friendships forming or dissolving? So predictable.

  26. VV™ says:

    Yes, Kim “private moment” WITH CAMERA AND CREW FILMING.

    In my best Kim Richards impersonation: “Are you kidding meeee?”

  27. BB says:

    Lydia is leaving the OC. I admire her for it. She seems happy and doesn’t really need to be a part of, as MTH puts it, that crapfest.

    • not THAT Jill™ says:

      She didn’t really fit well with those other OC chicks-better to just stay away from them!! I wonder who they will get now? I would love to see Brandi go to the OC and have a storyline with Tamra…

    • Can’t say I would blame her.. How many seasons of the Tamra-Gretchen-Vicki love triangle could one stand to be around?

      • cusi77 says:

        I am surprised that Gretchen got fired -not so much that Alexis got fired as well.

        I am surprised because Gretchen went out of her way to create a storyline proposing to Slade… Hope she just keep it quiet and go be happy marrying and having many kids … who am I fooling? If Bravo does not give them a spin off, Gretchen will NEVER be marring Slade… anyone want to bet?

    • TexasTart says:

      Thanks BB. Lydia was too good for the OC crew anyhow. She pronably would have not signed on again anway, but I have to think that Ryan going off on her Mom and Vicki atill being connected to the show played a role.

      Ditto Jill…I would love to see Brandi move in on Tamra’s turf!

    • Skinny Orson says:

      Good for her. I never thought she really fit in. If she’s smart enough to not become a professional “Former HW” I think she’ll come out pretty much unscathed. Wonder if her doper mom can stay under the radar?

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I didn’t really watch OC because I can’t stand any of them..other than one or two episodes. But I do like Lydia based on everything I have seen and heard about her (via the comments here).

      She seemed way too normal and sensible and dignified to hang out with that lot.

  28. VV™ says:

    Too skinny above.
    As it was discussed earlier, Kyle’s story line is Mauricio’s infidelity rumors. Pretty much like the Gorgas knew their story line was Melissa’s cheating rumors.
    I’m not equating the two. I am just stating that the cast discusses their storyline prior to filming.
    Instead of telling Lisa right then and there she was hurt by her comment. Kyle decided to do so on TH? Why why is that? …. Because is part of her story line….

    • cusi77 says:

      First Season revolved in a comment to Camille nobody heard on Camera -I believe Camille, btw.- I think that was the kind of comment Kyle would make… I am so Ready for this first Episode… With BH is in the first episode will set the rest of the Season! (Crossing fingers and toes this is not going to be too many episodes like in NJ) I think NJ left me traumatized with so many episodes!!!!!! I so wanted the drama to be finished!!!!!!

    • not THAT Jill™ says:

      I get the storyline stuff but when Lisa brought up the cheating rumor Kyle didn’t look like she was very happy-and since everyone says she isn’t a great actress I’m going to guess that she really wasn’t happy. I’m sorry but I just don’t see Kyle using those rumors as a storyline-I know people are going to go off on me and say that she used her sisters addiction as a storyline but her sister used that one herself!

      • VV™ says:

        Side Note: I think Mauricio hasn’t gotten over the fact that the Todd’s are not using his services in Real Estate ( Morris is holding THAT grudge ). I think Morris doesn’t like Lisa much because of that. If the Todd’s decide to go back with him. He’ll be all love towards her. (End of Side Note).

        I think the joke and it was a joke that Lisa made:
        (paraphrasing) … Maybe this is the reason why they say you’re with younger woman.
        She said that because Morris told Kyle he was taking Porsha with him. It was lighthearted and t WAS a joke. If a Kyle had been by herself on that scene with Lisa. She may have laughed it off. I think Morris is sensitive about it and perhaps she felt she needed to side with her husband.

        If a friend tells me that because my husband goes out with my young daughter etc etc. I KNOWING MY FRIEND KNOWS SHES KIDDING.

        This is all Bravo manufacture drama. If Kyke was so sensitive about it why did she befriend Camille again?

        • not THAT Jill™ says:

          Lisa makes jokes-yes-and she is very funny. Cheating is not funny-rumors that your husband is cheating is not funny. I can only imagine the backlash Kyle would get if the shoe was on the other foot. Lisa knew that saying that was not going to be funny-she knows ,she’s smart ,she’s played this HW game for a few years-there’s a reason for doing it-and it’s not nice-that’s all. Sometimes Lisa can be a catty bitch-she just covers it up better than the rest. Saying that to Kyle was mean and I kind of think Lisa knows it.

          • VV™ says:

            She didn’t say or used the word cheating?!!! You are putting words on Lisa’s mouth.

            She said Mauricio going out with his youngest daughter … maybe that’s why they are saying they spot him with younger girls (paraphrasing) British humor.

            We will never agree to it. Kyle has been playing victim all 3 seasons prior. It’s the only role she knows to play on HW. This season is no different.

            • not THAT Jill™ says:

              We will never agree-but let me say I never said that Lisa used that the word cheating so when did I put words in her mouth? I didn’t-she IMPLIED cheating and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out. So either Lisa knew we would get it or she thinks we are morons….British humor is no excuse for being a catty bitch in my book.

              • VV™ says:

                “Catty bitch” Really??!! Lisa is a Catty bitch? I’m totally confused.

                Lisa didn’t implied Mauricio was cheating. She alluded that because he was going out with her youngest daughter maybe that’s why the rag magazine keep writing about him been seen with younger woman.
                A joke “I” get.p

                • not THAT Jill™ says:

                  I’m glad you get the joke VV…

                • not THAT Jill™ says:

                  VV-I think you are confused-I wasn’t saying Lisa implied that Mauricio was in fact cheating-but she spoke of the rumor by making the joke. She implied there was a rumor.
                  Yes Lisa can be a catty bitch-that’s my opinion-I think every HW is a catty bitch-in fact it may be a job requirement for HWs.

                  • VV™ says:

                    Mauricios cheating rumors were going to be part of S4 because that is Kyle’s story line. Lisa knew that and Kyle knew that. Production had already decided… For Kyle to act all shocked I find very hypocritical.

                    • not THAT Jill™ says:

                      VV-you don’t know that and I don’t know that. I wonder though-if what you say about production is true-what do you think Lisa’s storyline is? What did production tell her each season?

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      What!??! Reality TV is staged and scripted and planned in advance???!! Get a rope,

          • LaineyLainey says:

            It’s not a joke…not a laughing matter to Kyle because maybe its true. Perhaps that is why neither Mauricio nor Kyle can laugh at the alleged joke, I hope it ain’t true. But if my friends joke about cheating, I laugh, why? Because mr lainey is not a cheater. Therefore it is wrong to make jokes like that to the wife of a known cheater. But if he’s not a cheater then it’s ok to joke. IMO.

            • not THAT Jill™ says:

              If my girlfriends joked about my husband cheating I would crack up-ya know why? Cause I never read about my husband cheating in a mag or on line. Since we know Kyle has Lisa’s joke is not funny to me-it catty and mean and unnecessary. I expect it that behavior on these shows so it’s not shocking-it is what it is.

      • cusi77 says:

        Their lives are glamorous enough to need a storyline like cheating rumors… let that to low life JoeyGo… Camille suggested in Season one that Morrizzzz liked to watch girls…

        My opinion: Mauricio even though that he is Jewish, he was born and raised in Mexico City. (Like me) Men from his economic and social level are very kind to women… in Real Estate he NEEDS to be that charming and perhaps is a cultural thing and not that he is a cheater. I didn’t like the way he treated Brandi last Season, but I don’t think he would cheat on Kyle. He is a one woman man.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I keep thinking that someone who really is cheating would not put themselves on the t.v. That would be very dangerous, the hos would comeout of the woodwork to get a piece of fame. So, I personally do not think he is a cheater. Maybe he’s just a flirt. But maybe Kyle is super sensitive and doesn’t get the joke because she worries about it. Because of the rumors.

    AZGirl how’s our Dr. Pepper doing?

  31. VV™ says:

    There she is Kyle. She defended Faye on S1, she defended Adrianne on S2, and now she’s defending Marisa on S3. Kyle has “selective staying neutral” and Lisa is right. Kyle will never had her back….

    • LaineyLainey says:

      She has been more loyal to all the folks you listed more than to her own sister (at least on camera)in season 1. So seeing her not support Lisa is no surprise to me; nor does it make me feel uncomfortable or disappointed. It apparently hurt Lisa, which is weird cause she seems so wise to the wise of the world.

      • not THAT Jill™ says:

        Maybe Lisa just pretended to be hurt so she would have something to talk about the next season.

      • Nancy says:

        I couldn’t agree more Lainey.

      • VV™ says:

        Lisa though they were friends. On S1, Lisa defended Kyle against Camille on numerous occassions and defended Kyle when attacked by others. She expected the same.
        *Morris was mad that Martin got the commission when they either sold or bought the new home. Morris wanted it both; sale and buy of their homes.

    JZ Newsletter:

    Hello Everyone:


    Sorry I haven’t written a newsletter in a very long time. Every time I sit down to write it…I think…”oh…I have so and so coming up…I’ll wait till that happens so I can include it and before you know it, the entire summer was over, the Jewish holidays were over, Allyson turned 21 and before I turn 40 (ish!) I need to ask you all a very BIG favor.

    I promise…after I get through this week I will sit down and write you an updated newsletter…hopefully thanking you all for LISA WEXLER winning her bid for PROBATE JUDGE in Westport and Weston CT.

    (ugly pic’s here)

    In the meanwhile…please watch the video below after you’ve read my appeal. If you live in WESTON, CT or WESTPORT, CT or know anyone who does…please share this email.

    You may recognize my much older (hah!) and wiser sister, radio host and lawyer, LISA WEXLER. I have always looked up to my sister LISA for so many reasons. I am beyond proud of her for so many things…but most importantly, for living her life with no regrets.

    Here is some of LISA’S resume so you can see what she has accomplished.


    1987 to Present
    Westport, Connecticut, Irvington, New York
    General law practice, with a principal concentration in wills, probate, trusts and estates, real estate and general corporate work. Appeared in Stamford, Bridgeport and Danbury Superior courts on litigated matters. Draft wills and trusts, represent clients in probate matters and litigation throughout Connecticut and New York. Handled matters alleging undue influence and fraud. Represent both small and multi-million dollar estates.

    New York, New York
    In-House Counsel
    New York, New York
    Associate Attorney

    •Elected to Westport Zoning Board of Appeals, 1999-2003
    •Appointed to Westport Planning and Zoning Commission, 1997-1999
    •Current Board Member, Jeffrey Modell Foundation for Primary Immunodeficiency Disease
    Successfully persuaded members of CT legislature to fund newborn screening for SKID disease
    about 10 more, but I don’t feel like copying & pasting

    Though LISA is running on the Republican ticket…I can say that she is the most fair and reasonable person and politics will never interfere in her decisions.

    LISA is often outraged over injustices in the legal system and is not afraid to fight for what is fair and just.

    I wish I could vote for LISA myself but what I can do, and I am asking you to do…is make this appeal VIRAL and send this video to everyone you know. You never know who knows who.

    Lisa Wexler, Probate Judge Candidate, Sets The Record Straight!

    I hope you all get out on Tuesday and VOTE in your community. Get informed today about who is running and educate yourself so you can make an informed decision about your candidates.


    If you tweet to VOTE FOR @blahblahblah to me at @jillblarinfreak….I will RT you back!
    *I fixed that line a little.

    Lets go VIRAL!

    Love and Kisses…
    Jill (and Bobby and Ginger too!)
