Elaine Lancaster Spills about Producer Manipulation by NMD

Below is a post Elaine Lancaster aka the drag queen on RHOM made on facebook last night after the reunion aired.  Elaine was in many scenes last season of Real Housewives of Miami, but only a few this year.  She explains why below.

” Now that the season is over… I can honestly say Thank God I was out of town working throughout most of the taping of season 3. I’ve made a great living as Elaine Lancaster for 15 years, well before Bravo came to town, and don’t need to “stoop to conquer” as I told the producers. I refused to be manipulated by anyone or any producer and throwing a friend under the bus for ratings is not my style. Unfortunately, when you don’t comply with that you’re not of much use to the producers.

Karma has a way of working itself out. Let’s see where everyone is next year. I sleep pretty well at night. “

Top Chef, New Orleans (S11E6) “Jazz Hands” by BB

A quote about New Orleans:  “I’ve been all over the world. I love New York, I love Paris, San Francisco, so many places. But there’s no place like New Orleans. It’s got the best food. It’s got the best music. It’s got the best people. It’s got the most fun stuff to do.”  Harry Connick, Jr.

Tonight’s guest judge is Kermit Ruffins, American jazz trumpeter, singer and composer from New Orleans.

Everyone is gunning for Nina because she’s pretty much winning everything.  Nicholas woke up sick and the medical people think he has strep.  He’s been told to keep his distance from everyone for the next 24 hours.  If he’s not ready for the elimination challenge, he will have to forfeit his spot on Top Chef.

top chef six oneThe Quickfire challenge is all about improvisation.  Each station has been prearranged with Kermit’s favorite ingredients and cooking tools, like duck, frog legs, chicken wings, quail, microwaves, fryers, toaster ovens, etc.  The chefs will start cooking at one station, but when Kermit starts playing his trumpet, they have to stop what they are doing and rotate around the kitchen until he stops playing, then they will stop at the station they are at and start cooking again.  Kermit tells them it’s their song to finish, which I guess means they will be judged on where they are standing at the end of the challenge.  The winner gets immunity in the elimination challenge.

top chef six one and one halfThe chefs get started and get upset about having to leave what they started.  They also don’t like giving up part of their 30 minutes marching around the kitchen to music.  The chefs start telling the others what they were trying to make at the start of the challenge.  Shirley ends up back at her station and is upset that Patty messed up what she started.  Nina is happy with what Travis did with her original dish.  Then the music starts playing again.  This is frustrating to even watch!  The chefs do not end up at their original stations in the end.  Justin is not happy he ended up at the microwave station where Shirley started.  I’m not going to repeat what everyone made.

Kermit’s least favorite dishes belonged to Justin and Louis.  Carlos, Brian and Patty were the favorites.  The ultimate winner is Brian, who will have immunity.  He immediately thanks everyone who worked on the dish before he got to it.  Sara’s a little bummed because she started the dish.

The chefs will be collaborating to create a pot luck style menu.  Patty doesn’t know what pot luck means.  They will be serving at Kermit’s restaurant where some of the best musicians of New Orleans will be dining.  The chefs get to pick their own teams (with the exception of Nicholas).  Louis, Shirley, Sara and Justin will make up the Blue team; The Green team is made up of Nina, Carlos, Stephanie and Carrie; that leaves Nicholas, Travis, Brian and Patty on the Grey team.  Hopefully, Nicholas will be able to participate or the Grey team will be at a disadvantage.  They are invited to hear Kermit play that night and have some great New Orleans food.

All the teams are figuring out what type of pot luck dinner they will be serving.  Nicholas confers with his team by phone.  He is telling Travis what type of fish to get for the dinner and Travis is following his orders.  When they get back, Nicholas gets with his team before they all go off and leave him for a night out on the town with Kermit at Vaughan’s.  It looks like a really fun place.

The next day, it’s all business as they prepare the food for the elimination challenge.  Nicholas is feeling better and seems to be doing a lot of the preparation work. Brian doesn’t know if it’s the best idea but he has immunity so he’s not that worried about it (nice guy that Brian).  Nicholas mentions that Nina, who is winning everything, is doing gnocchi again.  They have to take what they’ve prepared to Kermit’s Treme Speakeasy restaurant and get it ready to serve in 30 minutes.

top chef six twoIn addition to Kermit, the other judges will be Gail, Tom, Padma and Sue Zemanick, Executive Chef, Gautreau’s.  Justin notes that Sue is a friend of his but she would not hesitate to send him home for a bad dish.  The Blue team is up first.  Justin made hominy grits with brown shrimp, roasted okra, fava beans and smoked bacon.  Louis made grilled and pickled vegetables with crispy sunflower seeds and mustard vinaigrette.  Shirley and Sara made glazed beef with charred onions, melon pickles and pickled ginger vinaigrette.

Next up is the Grey team.  Nicholas is frustrated that the fish is cooking up too quickly.  Patty forgot something.  Brian says it’s a little mistake, but at the same time it’s a big mistake (whatever that means).  Brian and Travis made Togarashi Fried Chicken with Bee Pollen and Ponzu.  Patty made tomato watermelon salad, Szechuan pepper and goat cheese espuma.  Nicholas made Barramundi and red drum fricassee with zucchini, truffle and yuzu kosho.  Travis and Brian made caramel glazed bbq ribs, dehydrated potatoes and peanut gremolata.

The green team goes last.  Stephanie made fried baby artichoke, preserved lemon and anchovy aioli.  Nina made semolina gnocchetti with sausage.  Carrie and Carlos made summer tiramisu with nectarines, pistachios and cheese (sounds yummy!).

Party timeTom tells the diners it will be hard to figure out who had the worst group of foods and who had the best because it’s close for him.  It’s time for the chefs to hear what the judges think of their efforts.  They didn’t like the tiramisu, the shrimp and grits, the tomato and watermelon salad or Justin’s dry fish.  They liked the chicken, the vegetables and the gnocchi.  Padma comes in to get the grey team in a very stern tone. Does that mean they lost?  Usually the winning team is called out first.  The grey team was the least favorite team.  Their fried chicken was good, but the fish was overcooked.  Patty forgot to put the chili on her salad and admits to the judges she could have done better with it (kiss of death).

The green team wins the challenge.  The judges liked the artichoke dish, Gail loved the gnocchi.  Sue liked the sponge cake part of the tiramisu and thought there should have been more.  The best tasting dish was Stephanie’s.  She is declared the winner.  It’s her first win.  The last time she won something was “most improved” in basketball her senior year.

PattyNow, who is going home?  Sue didn’t like Travis’s ribs.  Tom didn’t like Justin’s fish.  They liked the chicken.  Gail had problems with the salad and so did Sue.  Patty is asked to pack her knives and go.  I think Patty expected to be eliminated.  She knows her dish wasn’t 100% perfect.

Last Chance Kitchen:  It will be Patty against Janine, who has already beaten out six chefs (all guys by the way).  Tom tells Patty she’s pretty much acted like a prep cook during her time on top chef.  With that, he gives each chef a tub of onions.  They will have to chop the onions first, then use them in the dish they prepare.  The catch is they have to do all of their prep work prior to cooking.  Once they start cooking, Tom will take their knives and they can no longer add anything additional.  They both make pork loin.  Janine says this is the hardest Last Chance Kitchen challenge so far.  Tom says she is the winner, but I think it’s only because Patty’s potatoes were too salty.  Patt’s dish looked better than Janine’s.  I also think Tom thinks Janine is a better chef than Patty, but that’s just my guess, nothing solid on which to base it.  And truth be told, Janine is probably the better chef than Patty.


KenyaMoore – Touching NeNe’s Ear

Did you miss me? That’s a rhetorical question of course. Of course you did! LOL! Have you missed my twirls, my curls, and my Gone with the Wind fabulousness? I’ve had the time of my life over the past year. My life has changed in such a positive way, it’s been a dream.

Crazy Kenya is back with a Tom Cruise size ego.

My love life has drastically changed and I am so close to having everything in life I’ve always wanted.

Oh great, she imagined a whole new love life.  I can’t wait to hear this new whopper of a manufactured lie.  Walter-less, of course.

I heart Gregg and NeNeas a couple and was so happy to learn that they would be getting re-married. I think he’s the balance that she needs.  NeNe makes an issue that I never called her to respond to her wedding invitation but took to Twitter to let everyone know that I had an invitation. FALSE.  Firstly, I personally texted her to tell her I would be in Africa at the time and would not be able to attend. So let’s keep it real with the real facts.

How about checking off No in the RSVP card?

She took the time to out of her busy wedding planning schedule to ask me if I was coming via text. At that time I felt she could have also shared the info of her invitation to my ex. It wasn’t required of her, but in my upbringing, it would have been common courtesy to inform me personally. After all, I had spent the past Thanksgiving with her then sharing some very personal info about my ex with her.  NeNe had in the past looked out for me regarding the actions and personal attacks and vendetta my ex had against me prior to him acting on them. So clearly, NeNe knew where that relationship stood… All the more reason to inform me as a friend that she had invited him to her wedding.

You no longer have a relationship with Walter so why bring it up?  You were not going to the wedding anyway since you were in Africa.  It is just an excuse to build some drama with Nene.  I wonder if Nene will be inviting you for Thanksgiving this year.

I never raised my voice, I never attacked her nor called her out of her name. I’ve always been an affectionate person who touches, and I was simply trying to have a civilized conversation with NeNe. Therefore, touching her ear was not aggressive. And she clearly didn’t see it that way either.

Oh, boy.  You are lucky she didn’t start choking you.

Even though Porsha has never apologized to me for anything she has said or done to me, including laughing, often taunting me with the fact that I wasn’t married or that my ex didn’t propose to me and reveling in my struggle, I still reached out to her when I heard the news of her divorce and wished her well.

With that said, I find it quite disturbing that Porsha and her family go on and on about the fact that Kordell may be gay. After all, she told the world she had a “picture perfect life” and married the “man of her dreams.”  Cut to Porsha sitting with the attorney agreeing to take him back if he abided by a “list.” Well, a thinking person with a brain would ask the question that if the main problem was that he is possibly gay, why would you want him back?  I don’t think Porsha is telling the whole truth. That’s always been my opinion of her and it remains the same after listening to her recall the “facts” about their marriage.

That’s a good point but I think that they are just bringing up questions as to why Kordell ended the marriage.  Either she was just a beard or he has some major control issues.  Porsha was still willing to make the marriage work in public and in private, but in order to do that she needed to know what the problem was.  I don’t think Kordell is the type to admit that he has problems.

The show has a way of forcing you to be more retrospective about your behavior. I am in a good place, but I have the experiences I have had on this show to partially thank for that. Life is about growth and that is sometimes painful. The key for me is to be willing to look deeper and from that be willing to have culpability for your own actions.

I have never seen this side of you and could never believe this was possible.  It is not April Fool’s yet.

Nene Leakes – Kenya Broke the G-Code

Keeping it as real as possible is how I like to roll, and staying true to who I am is important to me. So I sat down with Miss Delusional, whom I see right through, and the first thing I told her was that “I’m dating you! We are still getting to know each other, but because I know how to be a good friend and this is my city, I will take you to find a place to live!” Now you know what I am thinking. What business woman that’s claiming to be everything is homeless? But whatever, NeNe, just do your part.

It would be fun just to feed her delusions of grandeur to see how far she would go.

She also brought up Walter once again and my answer was and still is this: Walter is cool with both me and my husband. We personally feel there was never a relationship between him and Kenya other than friendship, so girl move on! By the way, none of the guests who were invited to my wedding were privy to my guest list.

No one has a say in your list but tell us the truth.  You did invite Walter to play with Kenya just a little bit, right?

The Ladies Meet at the Lounge: This was my idea to try and bring everyone together for the purpose of putting the past away and helping Phaedra and Kenya’s relationship. Here’s my take on it: Kenya, it’s inappropriate to text anybody’s husband without their knowledge. You broke the G-Code!

Yes she certainly did and Apollo also broke the spousal code.  He should have ignored any texts from Kenya.

Kenya Moore – Kenya’s So Called Eviction

Kenya starts out by calling her landlady a whole bunch of nasty names because her landlady decided to contact the press and tell them she was late on her rent.

The judge found that when I didn’t move out on Conya’s 2 week demand, she threatened to evict me, and then started a smear campaign with the media by furnishing them with lies of late rent and a plethora of other fallacies. I was relieved that the judge found that I was NOT evicted as widely erroneously reported, and awarded me over $10,000 for damages against Conya for defamation of character and invasion of privacy. Stay tuned, Conya’s campaign continues…

Why do we need to hear more of the Conya saga?  She is not on the show.  You moved out and all you need to do is collect on the judgment.

I have been the unwilling recipient of Phaedra’s unrelenting lies from last season. She called me every name in the book, lied, and called me an alcoholic, bipolar, fake, amongst other cruel monikers. I pushed back with my own insults. We are both responsible for attacking each other. So she can’t pick and choose what insults were acceptable to her or not.

What do you expect from the lawyer?  She won’t play fair and throw everything in your face.

When Phaedra gets you in her crosshairs, she shoots to kill and she is the dirtiest player in this game. Regardless of what she claims, I NEVER OFFERED SEX, ORAL OR OTHERWISE, TO APOLLO. Clearly she must be a less than stellar attorney, since her claims are based on her motive to throw dirt on my name and not the facts. The FACTS are, I immediately showed my phone during the reunion. The facts are, I have never offered nor been offered sex by Apollo. The fact is, I have nothing to hide or lie about with regard to him. Additionally, I could have retaliated for the lies Apollo tried to spew in reaction to when I suggested that he discontinue texting me, however, the truth will be made crystal clear very soon.

You did show your phone to everyone at the reunion and what both of you texted to each other.  Apparently it is still bad form to text another woman’s husband without their knowledge but I understood you were fighting back.


Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Blogs Blogged by Stars99 – Part 1

Brandi Glanville

Sorry guys, Brandi is just way too busy being vulgar and chewing on her foot that’s firmly in her dim-twittering mouth to bother to write a blog for us this week.

Carlton Gebbia

Carlton starts off, “Be forewarned this one maybe long too….”  I dunno, last week’s seemed much longer… but at least you’re articulate… lol… Carlton introduces us to her “beautiful family.” Yadda yadda yadda… While important, there’s not much fun in snarking about her husband or her home at this point, and since kids are off limits… if you want to know about her family or her home, you might want to read that portion of her blog on Bravo’s site.  Suffice it to say, she and David have been married for 15 years and he is her, “fu**ing world.”

Carlton’s sorry and says, “I apologize to those In advance but I do swear a lot. If you find it offensive, I’m sorry. I don’t always behave accordingly. I’m not always classy and pretty. I certainly have a mouth on me. I like to drink tequila and party with my hubby and our amazing friends. I love to have fun and be silly and you will see moments of me that will probably make my own toes curl, but I can admit when I am wrong. I believe in the underdog, and I can’t stand injustice or prejudice of any kind. Most importantly I live for my family. I am devoted to my husband and to my children.”

In the last 2 sentences of that paragraph, can’t you just hear the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” softly playing in the background… Someone in the audience is waving an American flag at her as she gracefully exits from the stage after making her moving, heart-felt speech… I guess Joyce isn’t the only one who can deliver a pageant speech… But I couldn’t help but notice that she did forget to add that all she wants is “world peace.”  Where did she put her tiara?  And her sash?  OOoooOOoo Maybe that’s why she doesn’t seem to like Joyce too much at the moment… Could it be that Carlton has a case of “tiara envy?”

Carlton blogs, “I received a call from Kyle to join her for lunch or dinner. . . I was a little surprised but thought it was a nice gesture and a perfect opportunity for us to get to know one another better. Maybe I had misjudged her about her comment about Lisa. Maybe it wasn’t meant as rudely as I had perceived. Also one of Kyles friends would be there, oh and Joyce would be joining us. . .Hmmm. OK. . .but then I thought it could just have simply been an off night for Joyce and Michael when I met them. Maybe they were nervous. We have all been guilty of saying dumb things — I know I have. Either way, letting it go was a step in the right direction although admittedly my son’s name incident still bothered me. What can I say? I’m in “Mama mode.”  But moving on. On a positive note. . .the naked image was erased! Yeeeeay!”

Oh Carlton… Don’t you know that “letting it go” is no way to remain a viable, dramatic Bravo housewife?

Carlton blogs, “Next Joyce enters…  god this girl is gorgeous! I am cordial. We chat for a while, laugh a little, swap kiddie stories. Then this lovely blonde enters who I met when my girls were in preschool with her son. What a small bloody world!”

Starts to inexplicably sing, “It’s a small world after all… It’s a small world after all… It’s a small world after all, it’s a small, small world.”  And if any of us think for one minute that Kyle didn’t already talk to her bestie Sharon about Carlton by name before this gathering ever took place… I think there’s some swamp land in Arizona that we need to buy… I didn’t understand why Kyle needed to have another friend there for this particular lunch… It seemed a little odd to me… but it all makes sense now, doesn’t it?

Carlton says, “The four of us talk at the bar when I begin to tell a story. Yes, it may have gone on a little and I will be the first to admit it. . .But in mid-sentence of this tragic story Kyle mutters something and walks out! Mid-bloody sentence, walks out. Doesn’t say “Sorry Carlton but I’m bored to death by this tragic story of how your two daughters optimistically nursed this bird back to health for a day after it had been attacked, then it suddenly died and then they solemnly buried and prayed over his dead little body!” Nope. Just turns on her heels or flats and walks out. Unbelievably rude, but why am I surprised?”

That was hysterical, if the editing is true.  It’s like Kyle’s OCD suddenly kicked in (Kyle tries to explain her actions in her own blog – Part 2 tomorrow)… but who does that in the middle of a story and just so danged abruptly…lolol

Carlton continues, “She then has the three of us walking back and forth like ants setting up the table outside. It shouldn’t have been that overwhelming — it was afterall a food delivery. I did however get a giggle when I saw the name place settings. It was a table for four, it really wasn’t that complicated. I was sitting next to Kyle like it or not.”

KMN… Name place settings?  For a party of 4?  Are you freakin’ kidding me?  I don’t get them… Not even for most weddings – I understand reserving tables for certain family members or friends that you want to sit near you… but other than that… When did people stop being able to find a place to sit?  I dunno… Obvi I’m just gauche… or perhaps I’m just a control freak who would love to be able to pick out where I sit for a change… lol!

Carlton writes, “All of a sudden Kyle has a panicked reaction to a bee that lands on our table.  First please let me say I sincerely understand the intense fear associated with bees or wasp — especially if you are deathly allergic and you feel like you’re in immediate danger of being stung. I truly appreciate the gravity, so of course do what you need to do!”

Actually, Carlton, you were a big fat pain in the neck about the bee.  I know an adult under 40 who died of a bee sting.  It’s not a small matter.  My Mom was also deathly allergic (although inexplicably, it didn’t stop her from walking around barefoot in the grass.)

Carlton continues, “This however wasn’t quite the same. . .I don’t know if it was a yellow jacket or honey bee, but it was not behaving at all aggressively. It wasn’t flying around them. It literally flew in and landed on our table. One would assume drawn in by the vase of roses planted upfront and center, surrounded by our food omitting a pleasant smell, and the sweet drinks!  I had no idea of what was about to happen and maybe I reacted too slowly but it was my intent to move the bee to a bush. . .Too late! Kyle shouts out “KILL IT!”  And suddenly a dead bee. Are you f—ing kidding me, I couldn’t believe it!”

The thing is… if someone is allergic to bees… they’re not going to stick around long enough to determine if the bee is actively being aggressive or not… Cuz those bees can turn on ya and will cut a bit**.  Or in Carlton’s case, a “fu**ing” bit**.

Because we haven’t already spent too much time on the bee, Carlton continues, “Um. . .If you’re going to sit outside during summertime dressed like a brightly colored flower and you are fatally allergic to bees, here’s a thought — lose the bloody food and roses genius. Oh and let’s not forget the perfume.”

I totally appreciate Carlton’s love of nature and the outdoors.  I hope she didn’t read my disclaimer on last week’s blogs about the sad fate of a certain spider…  Yes, I know bees are absolutely important to our wellbeing.  Perhaps we can all learn from Carlton.  That is, if we don’t die from a bee sting first.

Hilariously, Carlton still continues to talk about the bee, “And then they begin to laugh and SNORT in succession. Glad it was so amusing. Let’s senselessly kill more bees who pose no sign of imminent threat to you and totally f— up our ecosystem.”

Right… So you’re saying that Kyle is singlehandedly eliminating the bee population… One bee at a time!

“Keep in mind this was a two-hour dinner, not the minutes you’re blessed with. It was much more painful. It seemed like a bloody eternity. I did try to have fun and we definitely giggled. But there were a few moments when I felt like I was watching a scene from an Austin Powers movie, when you think the joke’s had its last legs and they keep laughing and laughing and… laughing with no end in sight, accompanied with a lot of hair flipping and swooshing. Sadly I could not participate as my hair was tied back, slicked to my head. There was to be NO hair tossing for me! I still love Joyce’s hair though, it’s really gorgeous.”

Awww, Carlton, we get that we’re seeing an edited version, honest we do.  Wow… Carlton is really dissin’ Joyce and her hair “swooshing.”  But then she wraps it up in a compliment.  You might say that Carlton floats like a butterfly, but stings like a bee, no?

Carlton writes, “Anyway finally it was bloody over! I left still not feeling optimistic about this one woman, sadly. I really went there hoping I was intuitively wrong but from today’s experience alas no.”

Dies laffin… I guess Carlton is not liking Kyle at this point.  Well, one more name to cross off the Thanksgiving Dinner guest list, no?  She does say that she and Joyce are getting along at this point – but she’s trying to be accurate as to how she felt at that point of time.  Whew… I was losing sleep over that!

Joyce Giraud de Ohoven

“Hola Mis Amores!”  Okay, last week, you opened your first blog with, “Hello Lovers”… so this week, you say almost the same thing but only in Spanish so we wouldn’t notice?  Hablamos español, Joyce.  Joyce talks about a project she’s working in China that facilitates people’s access to drinkable water.  While I kind of feel like she’s still acting like she’s on the pageant circuit – but honestly, I also think drinkable water is a very real issue and I’m glad she’s actually being actively philanthropic about something important to her.  I have a feeling that she is also going to be an over-explainer… because she then starts to further explain last week’s episode and blog.

Joyce explains, “I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my beautiful hubby and I “opening” a conversation with the fact that he wants a “naked room.” That is far from the fact and all of us who were there know that Lisa and my husband had been joking around. Since my hubby is a producer Lisa was jokingly telling him he needed to produce a porn for her. (Even if sometimes I don’t get the British humor… I LOVE Lisa’s humor, she is very funny.) As we were discussing movies, we joked about a movie we saw called Failure to Launch with Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew McConaughey. In it Matthew’s father wants him to leave the house so he can get a naked room. It’s been an ongoing gag since we saw the movie and that night we were all having fun and talking about that. My husband and Mauricio were joking about it and when Kyle pulled us over to meet Carlton and David we were still talking about that. It didn’t just come just out of the blue.”

Joyce, meet the editing department. Oh well, and meet Carlton, too – Cuz she thought it was kind of bizarre for you to be talking about it when you had just met her.

And Joyce continues to explain, “Now. . .about Carlton’s remarks and comments about me “f—ing” with her children’s names. When we were there and since I’ve known her for the past months she NEVER mentioned anything about it (not once). She knows when I said I liked the girls names even better than Cross I was referring to the fact that prior to that I told her how cool the name Cross is.  If it ever bothered her that much I would’ve expected her to tell me to my face instead of making it a big deal on a “confessional” or writing so negative about it on her blog. Don’t be two-faced and don’t be so negative! Life is great!”

Joyce, meet the land of reality TV.  Maybe when you were watching previous seasons, you didn’t understand that it’s far more fun for everyone to talk about each other behind their backs.  That way you only have to survive the dreaded “Reunion” show after everyone has seen all the nasty things you’ve said all season long.  Rookie mistake.

OMG, Joyce further explains, “About me calling my hubbys package aka penis a “peepee.” I have two young boys (one just turned four and the other one is one). Around my children I don’t use the words cock or dick. Ever since I grew up in Puerto Rico we have called it “peepee.” It’s a cute name to call it without being so vulgar. So you can understand why I used the term LOL. But honestly — of all people, I wouldn’t expect Carlton to take offense from it considering the language she uses and how “open” she is.”

Yeah, it was a lil surprising that Carlton is fu**ing shocked at a lil peepee verbiage.

Joyce writes, “On this week’s episode I felt so sad seeing Yolanda in the hospital that when she cried I cried with her.  Life is so short and we all have to be so thankful for so many things that we sometimes take for granted like our health.”

Amen.  Joyce tells us that she cried when Yo cried when she was in the hospital, that Lisa is a great dancer, and that Carlton should loosen up.  She also assured us that Carlton finished her cat and bird story to Joyce.  Whew.

Joyce confesses, “Yes! I CONFESS! I’m a snorter. LMFAO! I’m not so proud of it as a lot of people have made fun of me for it but I guess the cats out of the bag. . . After tonight’s episode you all know and there’s no hiding it so I’ll just embrace it.  I do control it on sets when I’m acting, but in real moments where I’m having fun with the girls I don’t feel the need to control anything LOL.”

I think all of us who occasionally snort while laughing should unite and take over the world!  Buwahahahahaha!

Joyce concludes, “Bottom line is…We had a lot of fun at Kyle’s and to be quite honest I thought Carlton had fun too until I’ve seen tonight’s episode. The reality is when we said our goodbyes she said, “It was fun and I hope the other times will be as fun.” I guess you never know what people are really thinking. I just tend to take their word for it but I do NOT like it when people are smiling to your face and then say something else.”

Joyce, meet Beverly Hills!

Kim Richards

Kim starts off talking about Kyle’s lunch (Where was she? Was she not even invited?) She basically just says that likes Carlton but wishes she had a better time.  But then she said, “At the other lunch, it was a different story!” and then starts to dig on the other women… No, not the nice kind of “dig ya”… but digging… like in Digfest 2013™©®…

Kim writes, “Once again, to watch Lisa diss my sister and Brandi! Insinuating that my sister doesn’t have friends? And that maybe Yolanda should put her house on the market?!? And then turning to Brandi and telling her that she needs to exercise her brain! These kinds of comments have become all too common from Lisa. It was a very degrading comment but with a touch of humor! That’s another one of Lisa’s specialties! This kind of behavior is totally uncalled for!”

Oh Kim, Lisa has always done that… You just haven’t been sober enough to realize it.  After Kim slips into a momentary mentascental meandering of how much she misses her children when they were small like Portia, she starts talking about her wonderful dog, Kingsley.  She calls him “the sweetest dog in the world.”

Kim writes, “As you can see, he can be a bit of a troublemaker. . .He’s so loveable, but when he’s not getting attention, he finds a way! He will go into my purse and take out my sunglasses, my makeup, my wallet. Anything to get my attention! He LOVES shoes, furniture, rubber bands, etc! I knew I had to call in a trainer! The trainer told me he’s very spoiled! You think??”

Captain Understatement.

Kim continues, “When I spoke to the trainer, David Utter, he told me that Kingsley is not going to like the authority of a trainer and what he represents and that he could become aggressive with him. This is the first time I’m working with David, the only other trainers I have worked with were animal trainers on Disney movie sets and TV shows. He also said that Kingsley should have a choke collar and leash on when he arrives, because Kingsley may sense him on the other side of the door! Unfortunately, when David arrived, I was on the phone and distracted and I didn’t put the leash and collar on. Kingsley reacted just as David had said, but within a few seconds, he was back to himself! Kingsley and our family have been working with David, and you will get to see more of this wonderful dog! Dogs are worth all the work, they’re like babies! I love my dog!”

So let me get this straight, the one thing the trainer asked you to do – You just got too distracted and didn’t do it?  C’mon… training this dog is very important – I hope you’re taking it seriously.  Kingsley is around small children and I’d hate it if anything bad happened… because it wouldn’t be Kingsley’s fault.

Kim blogs, “As for Kyle and I watching Lisa on Dancing With The Stars… Well, when I first saw Lisa fainting, I thought what just happened? Then we watched again, and I saw that she was holding his hand while she gently laid herself to the floor? But she still had his HAND!?!  It looked like she was still holding, because she was afraid to fall to the floor!!! I have fainted on camera and in real life and that just looked like a FAKEY!!”

I completely disagree.  You could see Lisa getting befuddled and woozy.  It looked to me like he was holding her hand and not the other way around… plus she fell hard like a sack of potatoes.  I just don’t think she was faking… and the one time I fainted, I didn’t wake up startled like you describe happens… It was more like I slowly became conscious.  Lisa actually had to practice for hours and hours to dance on this show.  Unlike you, who just jumped in feet first from the low dive, on your “Stars in Danger” show.  Puhleeze.  Sit down, jelly melly.  Kim then talks about Yo and what a tough year it has been for her.  She calls Yo a “tough-ass” and her struggling really affects Kim especially when she sees scenes like Yo in the hospital.  Kim thinks David is a great guy… Thanks, good to know…

Stay tuned in for tomorrow’s Part 2 of the blogs (Kyle, Lisa and Yo… Oh, and Brandi, if she dislodges her foot from her mouth in time….)

    Hey chismosa. Good morning to you. B is most definitely scraping the bottom for guest. I saw Courtney on E! last week. She & Doug are getting divorced/divorced. She’s saying she’s young and wants to enjoy herself. Blah, blah, blah. And she’s gotten more fillers or plastic surgery. She looks like clay.

  2. Powell says:

    Let me repeat.
    Give me a T, give me a G, give me a I, give me a F. What do you get? TGIF!!!!! Yeah!!!!! Good morning everyone. 🙂

  3. Powell says:

    BB I’m sorry about Tanner. I hope his nail is better today. Give him a special treat today.

  4. BB says:

    Good morning Powell! TGIF. Yay. I made my hubby take Tanner to the vet this morning just to be on the safe side. He had a restless night because of that danged bandage. They are there now and I will report back about him later.

  5. chismosa™ says:

    Um Elaine —- the Miami HWs may not even be there at all …..
    He/she is so annoying 👴👵


  6. BB says:

    Lulu, if you check in today I wanted you to know that when my nephew was little we all noticed his little hands shook sometimes when eating. My sister-in-law took him to the doctor and he was diagnosed with a benign tremor resulting from an allergic reaction from penicillin he took when he was about 18 months old. He’s about 30 now and still has it though I never notice it. My sister-in-law says when he’s really nervous about something, it will happen. But it’s nothing serious and has never affected him in any way. He played sports, plays the guitar, has a great job, and is happily married with a one-month old baby girl.

    • Lulu says:

      Awww!! Thank you BB!!!! At this point his pediatrician is slightly concerned since he only does this with specific activities.

      Your nephew has a wonderful life!! 🙂 Congrats Great Auntie!!

  7. Powell says:

    SoutheastVA I hope you’re doing better today. I know you were scared. Same thing happened to me. Doc said same thing. “I don’t know how you’re walking around.” My doc sent the police to my house for a welfare check & for me to go to the ER. I didn’t go cuz I was fine at that time. Went to the doc he wanted me to have a transfusion but I didn’t. Started iron transfusions immediately 5 days a week. I’ve been getting transfusions for 20yrs + now. Speak w/your doc to see if further treatment is required. If you need to get iron infusions. Also eating iron rich foods, red meat sparingly if you eat meat. I hope it will turn around for you. Bless you and BIG hugs.

    • SoutheastVA says:

      Hi Powell. I thank you and everone else for the encouragement and prayers. I’ve had a long day of more tests to find out where the heck my blood is going or if I’m making enough to begin with. I’ve had 2 iron infusions, gross potassium intake, some stuff to get rid of my swelling (I’ve retained water like crazy). I’ve just now gotten to a point in the day where they aren’t taking my vitals every 15 minutes, literally. B12 is next up to bat. I ended up getting 5 blood transfusions just to get my hemoglobin up to 8. The cardiologist said that my eckocardiogram results leads him to think that I may have developed a leaky heart valve but they have to completely treat the anemia side effects and re-test. So, I’m still in the hospital. I do feel a hell of a lot better though. No more chest pain or shortness of breath. I was supposed to get a shot of medicine in my stomach last night w/a drug to prevent clots from forming. I couldn’t do it and told the nurse “not tonight partner”. She snitched to my hubby…he gave ne a what for. I took the shot today. It didn’t hurt as much as I thought. My better half went to school for medical stuff (phlebotomy, lab stuff to work in the research lab area) he continued on w/ various medical studies throughout his career. He has a mind for ALL sciences (medical, Earth, physics, astronomy, etc). He impresses me with knowledge he’s able to retain and recall. He sits up here conversing with the Drs almost like he’s their peer because he understands what they are saying and breaks it down for me in laymans terms. My Drs love him. However, I think its rude that they look at him while talking about me sitting right there. Oh well, better than no support at all. I’ll keep everyone posted. I’m on the mend.

      • TexasTart says:

        Glad to find an update from you. Sorry you’re still in a hospital and I hope they get to the bottom of it soon!. More prayers for you. Check in with us again. (((Southeast VA)))

  8. BB says:

    Shouting out to T-Rex and Southeast VA today. Hope you both get resolutions to each of your medical situations.

  9. Powell says:

    T-Rex I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well. I’m glad Mr. T-Rex is taking you to the ER. Hopefully you’ll be diagnosed quickly & get back to feeling better. BIG hug to you.

    Original Message:

    • She’s just acting for ratings. She and Lisa probably set this whole story line up. Kyle knows Brandi has stolen the spotlight with her filthy mouth and behavior and just wants some of the attention back so that she’ll be signed for another year with her brain dead sister. Otherwise Mo will have to start supporting Kim again. IMHO

      • VV™ says:

        Who set it up? That’s interesting. Did you mean Kyle and Lisa or Brandi and Lisa?

      • ladebra says:

        omg you might be right. It’s a little disappointing not to believe a word they say 😦

        Brain dead sister … LMAO!

      • Rebecca hopes Vito comes to his senses says:

        Lisa has real-life businesses to protect. There’s no way she would put that all in jeopardy like this.

        • Powell says:

          I’m w/you Rebecca.

        • kit9 says:

          Well, Lisa is putting her business in jeopardy with her horrible VR show. Her bidness comes off horribly on that show. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve seen the staff drinking and fighting on the job. What’s a little fakey lot invention to the gang of obnoxious idiots she showcases on VR? lol!

          • BB says:

            I know some people in the restaurant business who say that kind of stuff goes on among young staffs all time, even though I’m sure SUR’s regular customers and clientele know what is shown on television is “made for tv” stuff for the most part. Not my kind if entertainment, but people seem to be watching it.

          • Powell says:

            I don’t know why they are employed.

          • Rebecca hopes Vito comes to his senses says:

            They’re all paid actors. I doubt the real staff that actually works there full-time is this unprofessional.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I could be wrong, but I don’t think her restaurant is suffering. My friend went there and said there was a line and it was packed. My daughter lives in LA and said she wants to go to SUR or Villa Blanc, but her friends tell her no, its too crowded ( lots of tourists).Also, was it you who said that Lisa was whining on twitter? I still haven’t seen evidence of that anywhere ( I follow her on twitter). She doesn’t tweet much, in fact. Now Lea Black, she LIVES on twitter. Phone in hand 24/7, perhaps. She retweets like crazy. Kristen Johnston too. Both of them are for the most part are really positive on twitter.

            • djprincessc says:

              I agree Lainey. I walk/drive by Villa Blanca everyday and I’ve never seen it not crazy busy except once, which was yesterday in between lunch and dinner. I think Lisa is doing VERY well..

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Thanks for weighing in, since u work there! I wish you and my girl coud meet sometime!

                • djprincessc says:

                  I’m dying to see Lisa, that would be soooooo amazing!! I know I’d love to meet your daughter!! Does she have IG?? Or you?? You guys can add me @djprincessc 🙂

        • plainviewsue says:

          OMG……………Rebecca your new name!!!!!! Hysterical! 🙂

        • plainviewsue says:

          OMG Rebecca……………your new name!!!! I am hysterical 🙂

    • Too bad your mouth is bigger than your heart, Kyle…

    • T-Rex says:

      Then you have confirmed what we all know, you SUCKED at acting. Who is she kidding, VileKyle another EPIC.FAIL no wonder every time you wanted to go back to acting you got pregnant instead(her words season one). I took drama classes in school and have to ASSUME she has had a couple, if you can’t act like you care or overly care, acting is NOT your sport.

  11. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Oh soooo many smart ass jokes to make-IF I were a smart ass….

  12. chismosa™ says:

    VV — you’re going to love this – Melissa Gorga on Bethenny …..
    I guess Kathy’s connection is still working it

    Also- on the same episode that Lumann is going to be on- Johnny Weir who Bethenny always said she hated – will be a guest.

    Ps she was so combative with Courtney Stodden. I don’t get it.

    • VV™ says:


    • BB says:

      I guess Bethenny is going for the controversial or combative angle with a lot of her guests. Not my cup of tea, but I don’t watch talk shows anyway. Why watch when word gets purposely “leaked” about what went on beforehand? I know it’s a hook to get people to tune in, but I’d rather tune in not already knowing what’s been said. I’ve already read some things about Courtney Stodden’s interview with Bethenny. Why bother tuning in? For the other stuff?

      • chismosa™ says:

        I agree BB — but they do this for a lot of shows now- a lot !

        I just happened to tune in–while waiting for someone on The View—- wanted to see if she’d be as combative as she was with Farrah Abraham- though she says she’s not judging.

        But I see your point —- I just have to tune in sometimes I can’t resist 😦

        Hope the doggie is better BB….

    • plainviewsue says:

      I watched today. She wasn’t on.

    Andy must be working the publicity hard for his show.

    Lauren Manzo Is ‘Obsessed’ with Her Ring and Impressed by Fiancé’s Teary Proposal

    Give Vito Scalia an A+ for his proposal to Lauren Manzo, from the planning down to the bling!

    Manzo, the daughter of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo, tells PEOPLE that her beau did everything right on the big day.

    “Vito went and got a shave, his eyebrows waxed and a haircut. Then he showed up at 5:30 wearing a sportscoat even though I normally have to force him to dress up,” she said.

    “He had a big bouquet of red roses and got down on one knee. When I looked up, both of our families were in the window and he was crying and shaking and I’m hysterically crying. It was amazing – the moment that every girl waits for.”

    So, the families were in on it? “My mom was on cloud nine all day,” Lauren says. “I was wondering why she was so happy.”

    Scalia also put plenty of thought into the ring, getting designer Yanina – Lauren’s jeweler since she was 17 – to create the diamond sparkler with white and rose gold accents.

    “I remember seeing the ring, and I couldn’t believe he pulled off what I always wanted,” Lauren says. “I am obsessed with it. I don’t know how many carats it is because he won’t tell me, but when I go out to eat with my friends I make them wear it, so I can see what it looks like.”

    And now, of course, the planning begins for a wedding that will probably happen next summer – perhaps at the church at Fordham University, where Scalia went to school. “It’s gorgeous,” says Lauren of the chapel.

    “[My mom] saw a dress already and she was like, ‘You have to try this on,’ ” Lauren adds. “I want the bridesmaids to wear wedding dresses, too. Mine will be snow white, and they will be in ivory or cream,” she said.

  14. chismosa™ says:

    Lainey I saw that Jennifer Gilbert was going to be on Million Dollar Shoppers again? Flashing her boob….

    She seemed to be bitchy again. I’ll have to watch.

    • BB says:

      I think she was on there last night – the finale.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yes, I saw it! I really liked it! I liked the chemistry of the dueling shoppers. Jen was hilarious. I wonder if this is her real personality? So different from her stint on rhonyork. It’s like she learned…you can’t be nice and normal if you want to be on a Bravo show.

  15. Lulu says:

    OT fun: How did your Hubby propose?? 🙂

    Mine was terrible:
    DH was drunk and just said lets get married. I thought he was joking but the next day he said it again and said he was serious. Several years later bought me a ring of junk. —>curious if I have the worst proposal in history 🙂

    Then again 7 years later and still married……..

  16. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Lisa is NOT HAPPY!!!
    Brandi went too far this time-40 something and she doesn’t know when to keep her big fat mouth shut!!!!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      VV-where are you?? I NEED you to read this and comment-Lisa is mad as hell!! I think she might kick Brandi’s ass!!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

        From US mag

        Last season on RHOBH, Vanderpump and Glanville were close friends, but so far in season four the two seem to have drifted apart. What happened?

        “I think we should watch the show because I’m curious to find that out as well! Because I don’t know,” Vanderpump said. “I almost don’t want to know. What she said . . . I tried to make light of it and make a joke of it on Twitter with Joanna because it was so humiliating. Who wants to hear something like that? Sometimes I think she should just put a muzzle on it.”

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          And I am sure somewhere Brandi is still insisting that she and Lisa are just having a little ‘hiccup’ in their friendship. HAHAHAHAHA

          Lisa has thrown down the gauntlet …with pretty much saying either she (Brandi) goes or I go.

          Prediction…Brandi is gone next season and so will Yo.

          Story line
          Lisa and Kyle will try to ‘mend’ their friendship
          Kim will fold dinner napkins
          Carlton will try to cozy up to Lisa
          Carlton will fight with Joyce because she thinks she is the weakest link
          The trip will be a cruise

      • VV™ says:

        Let me see. Just now notice this post.

    • Nancy says:

      I wonder what she means about her threatening to quit?
      Does she want Brandi fired?

      • Rebecca hopes Vito comes to his senses says:

        She has a business to protect. She’s the only woman on this show with a professional life. If that takes a hit, she’s permanently screwed here in the US. The other harpies have nothing to worry about.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Kyle also has a business.

          If I were Lisa and was interested in protecting my ‘brand’, I would worry more about that awful Vanderpump Rule’s than what comes out of Brandi’s mouth.

          • Nancy says:

            Me too!!!!! I can’t believe she has put her name onto that disaster.

            Any news re: your friends daughter? I hope she’s ok.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Hi Nancy,
              Ferg was able to change Ren’s schedule so that she would be working in Orange, so I am imagining she will commute their from home, We are hoping that if she secures a permanent position with the company that she will get her own place, so her daughter can have a room of her own.

              I keep praying for the girl, Thankfully she is smart so I feel that will be her only way out of this mess . This kid has seen and been through so much, I am not sure if she can come back from it.

          • Powell says:

            Kyle’s biz isn’t supporting the family & putting kids thru college. Not that what she’s doing isn’t important. But she can close her store at any time & it won’t affect their living.

        • Powell says:

          Right. Her & Ken’s bizs support them & their family. That’s their livelihood.

    • Rebecca hopes Vito comes to his senses says:

      There’s no hope for Brandi at this point. She’s so cocky and her head is so blown up her newfound fame, that she has no reasoning left telling her to keep her mouth closed. There is always an excuse for her hurting someone else.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

        I think the excuses are what is doing her in. She fancies herself a truth canon but she doesn’t tell he truth-she needs to say “I’m a bitch-Joanna made fun of the fact that my husband was a low down dirty dog and I hit her where I knew it would hurt the most”…but nooooo she has to say”she started it” “Andy made me say it” BLAH BLAH ENOUGH!!!!

        • VV™ says:

          Lisa will publicly protect her friends. To her loyalty is important.

          I think 1/2 of article is true.

          Brandi’s big head is also being manipulated and blown up by the Dicks Sisters and Yolanda.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

            I think the things they have Lisa saying in quotes are true b/c I can totally see her saying all that (she was actually nicer than I would have been about trash mouth) .

          • Cartwheels says:

            The most controversial behaviors that Brandi had shown so far had nothing to do with the Richards sisters:
            Brandi drinking into oblivion and getting her dress around her neck and her tampon string in the wind has nothing to do with them.
            Brandi deciding to throw Lisa under the bus to save her own image has nothing to do with them, only with the fact that Brandi is loyal to no one.
            This whole latest stunt with Mohammed , Joahnna and Lisa has nothing to with them either.

            Brandi doesn’t need any extra help , when it comes to ruining her image she does a wonderful job all by herself.

            • VV™ says:

              I’m not blaming anybody for Brandi for controversial behavior. She has always behaved in a controversial ways. I was referring to her big head. I think Kyle and Kim had all contributed to her big head by pretending to be her friend. IMO.

      • Powell says:

        DAMN again. Are we gonna have to be on Adrienne’s side too?

    • Powell says:

      What is wrong w/Brandi? She doesn’t want any friends does she? I forgot who here said it but DAMN I’m gonna start siding w/LeAnn.

      • Cartwheels says:

        LMAO, wouldn’t that be something?
        I saw an interview on Jimmy Kimmel with Eddie Cibrianni and the skinny on that was that Eddie thinks Brandi is a drama queen who creates drama around her to capitalize on it.

        he is a douchebag but I think his assessment is spot on.

            You NEVER know. They have super wealthy friends and clients. Real estate is ever changing.

            Why did Lisa leave her old house ? The one across Adrienne?

            Yes, Andy asked Lisa/Ken at reunion S3 and both told Mauricio to his face that they weren’t interested in doing business with him.

              Their friend Martin is their real realtor.

              • VV™ says:

                Yes, I know. I think Lisa/Ken had to do a balancín y ACT when they sold and bought their new home by giving Mauricio the sale and Matin the purchase. IMO this started a rift between Lisa and Kyle because Moe thought he was the agent for both and once they sold Lisa’s house the Umansky started distancing themselves, like many say they do…

    Tanner update. The vet took off the bandage (it was no longer bleeding), cleaned it really good, said there’s one spot that could possibly get infected, rebandaged it, put him on anti-biotics, told us to keep it dry, and to come back on Monday for a recheck. The vet said he had probably already cracked the nail somehow and when it got snagged on something, it just came out. The groomer told us he was kind of rambunctious yesterday. Little does the groomer know he is always rambunctious! He’s always getting himself into scrapes and jams. I feel better (and poorer) now.

      I put it on and got distracted by God only knows what so I need to watch again-from what I hear it was explosive!! Can’t wait to see what went on!!

      • trudie says:

        So much happened. The thing about Scandal and Revenge (as well as other shows) is that you really have to sit down and pay attention or you will miss something.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

          When I watch Scandal if I miss something in the first 5 minutes I’m lost for the rest of the episode! Last night that happened so I changed the channel-I will watch over the weekend when I can pay attention!! I will probably read the blog by Empress first so I will have an idea what happened!!

    I personally like that Brandy is a blabbermouth. I find her refreshing and funny! Since I’ve come to the realization that most of this BS is fake and scripted, I laugh at it.

      But then someone will fight back & then she’s the poor single mother trying to make a living. Does she want someone to really sue her? Hey Tom Cruise is suing mags for $50 mill. It will be on a smaller scale but does she have dough to fight a lawsuit? No. Drinking & Texting didn’t bring her that much money.

      • Cartwheels says:

        That is exaclty where my problem is with Brandi
        She is Bravo’s jack pot because in reality who is willingly going to embarras herself to that degree for no reason, only Brandi , so Bravo knows they hit the jack pot with her.
        My problem with her (and Lisa) is that they can dish it up with a laddle but when it comes their turn to take it, they just about get offended with anything and everything.

    So Bravo has a video of Brandi giving a tour of her new home. She answers the door in lingerie, steps over dog shit…and opens a crate of sex toys by her bed,…right next to the stipper pole.

    It was a photo shoot. Her makeup guy tweeted.

    Hi PowelI saw your comment on the last blog! I’m still reading and catching up!! loll! Im still getting used to the traffic, as its only been 2 weeks. Hopefully with time I can deal! I think I did pull or strain something, on my left side. I feel a little knot so Idk if its a nerve?? But its not hurting as much today. I took a nice relaxing bath last night with epsom salt so Idk if that helped a little. hank you for your concern! How are you??? Its so funny that when I saw Josh A I immediately thought I can’t wait to tell the Lynn family!! haha 🙂

    • cusi77 says:

      That was so cool for you to report the Josh A! I wish you are feeling better.DJ!

    • Powell says:

      Hey DJP. I’m glad your side is feeling a little better. Maybe more epsom salt hot baths is the ticket. LOL at Altman. Maybe you’ll see his bro, Heather & Mauricio. #stalkeralert. 🙂

      • djprincessc says:

        Thanks Powell it actually isn’t hurting at all anymore. I’m so happy. I was starting to get worried since it was 3 weeks.That bath did the trick! And I can’t wait to report on the rest of them! #totalstalkeralert lol.

  32. Powell says:

    I saw the promo for Mobwives coming back on. It’s called “Mobwives: New Blood”. Renee, Drita & Carla. No Karen & Ramona. I never liked Ramona anyway. And it shows 2 new ladies driving up in a mustang I believe. Not sure of the car make though. Renee looks like she’s lost weight. I’m ready for a new season.

    Bethenny should bring the Original Cast of RHONY to her show. It would be a monumental task and ratings gold. I would watch.

  35. T-Rex says:

    Good evening in my nice cozy hospital bed after checking into the ER. Now, for the details, just saying that everyone is joking about my “House”(the Tv show) experience so far, they have promised that they will not be breaking into my home for clues. Have had bloodwork done, perfect, did the ultrasound, the notes were “grossly UN-remarkable” so clear, sent for a Catscan, uhm nothing. So I have been admitted for some sort of enzyme test to see if the Gallbladder is functioning properly, my first NUCLEAR test. Oh, blood pressure and Temp are fine, but have a UTI(urinary tract infection) with ZERO symptoms that I could tell, on a massive does of liquid shooting through my veins as we speak. On painkillers, and noted that Dilaudid(sp?) is not my friend got to try out 4 different anti-nausea meds BONUS. So that’s the update so far, glad I decided to go to ER got tons of stuff done in one day and to rule out the pretty bad stuff, like most of the really evil cancers like liver and pancreatic.

    • ladebra says:

      Oh boy TRex 😦 I hope you are better very soon

    • BB says:

      Hope they get to the bottom of what’s ailing you so they can fix it, T-Rex.

      • T-Rex says:

        The one option they had on their list of possibilities did not sound good, it’s that the don’t find anything, and it’s a muscular/skeleton issue, and there is NO cure for that but time and pain meds. With a lot of heat/ice options and not moving much. I personally hope it’s the kidney infection from the UTI and they knock that out with the Cipro and saline they have coursing through my veins. For as much water I drink, I didn’t note that I hadn’t been peeing(I know TMI, reading too many STFUBrandi tweets), as much as I should be. I NO other signs, no discomfort, I had bloating but thought that was from the Aleve I was taking.

    • VV™ says:

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Thanks for the update. Praying for you!

      Thanks everyone for the thoughts! Cool the hospital has WIFI so I didn’t have to read from home, it’s my least favorite way of reading and posting here.

      • T-Rex says:

        Phone not Home, good grief, pain meds kicked in

      • Nancy says:

        Let me know if you don’t like your nurses as I’ll be on the next plane. 🙂
        Try to get some sleep.

        • T-Rex says:

          Thanks Nancy, the nurses have been great, I was in the ER since 7am, moved to a room around 5:45, was cranky with floor nurses, as I was in pain at that point and hungry, but it got sorted out, but you can still come if you want! My mom(retired long time nurse) also wanted to come down, but I don’t think I will be here very long. For the most part, surgery has been ruled out, unless the Gallbladder fails the test, then I would believe it would come out, unless they have meds to make it better, Nancy do they?

          • Nancy says:

            I would think so but this isn’t my area of nursing. Sorry you had to stay in the ER
            so long. Not a great area to relax needless to say. (((T-Rex)))

    • Hope they figure it out soon!! That Dilaudid is some strong stuff!!

      • T-Rex says:

        It was strong, I had a mini-meltdown when they tried to do the first catscan and I didn’t like the tech either he was mad that my pain was keeping me from lying down, told him to call the doc, they did, got me back to the room, and shot me up. Okay, I wan’t to know how folks use this stuff recreationally, it was SO strong, and the feeling I got, I wouldn’t want on a regular basis. The second CT tech was great, very patient, and the CT was so easy, they shot me full of some stuff for contrast, and she listed all of these items I might experience, one being the feeling of peeing myself, I did not want that one! I think because of the drug, I didn’t get one symptom. Then I got back on the gurney and got sick, with nothing in my system except a bit of water for one of the pills I had to take, it wasn’t fun. Got my IV at 7am so they were just pumping stuff in and out of there most of the day.

        • chismosa©®™ says:

    OMG I am FINALLY caught up on the blogs since Tuesday yay!!

    I watched the Miami Reunion last night and actually liked it a lot! The joy that Joanna gets out of hurting others is very disturbing. I mean making fun of Lisa for not being able to get preg?? Joanna better be careful, what goes around comes around and WAY worse. And her makeup artist speaking that way to Lisa?? And Joanna standing there and laughing?? Seriously??? She is NOT a friend and I hope Lisa is truly done.

    I know everyone thought it was gross but I actually thought that the smelly pussy comment from Brandi was hilarious. I could totally see this convo with Mohammed. Brandi probably said something like I heard you hooked up with Joanna and he prob said something like ya and her p*ssy stunk. I mean guys talk like this and eventhough he’s old hes a player. Doesn’t sound far fetched to me.

    I still don’t like Brandi anymore, she needs to stop with the sex talk. Booooorrrriiinnngggg…it was funny the way that Andy kept staring at Brandis boobies.

    • kit9 says:

      I think he said it, too, just probably not those words. Brandi came up with it too fast, you know? And, there’s something very sleazy about Mohamed.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I agree, I also think he said it, he strikes me as that kind of douchebag.

      I don’t doubt that a guy like Mohammed would have those kind of conversations with someone like Brandi , but with Lisa? maybe I still have some colored glasses about her but I didn’t figured her in the middle of that messy conversation and now she has flat denied it ever happened.

      The way Brandi said it made me believe originally that there is no way she could have made it up, but reading Lisa’s interview has made me rethink about it.

      Still no sure if Lisa was there or not.

  44. TexasTart says:

    I found an update from Southeast VA, way upthread responding to Powell and BB. And T-Rex updated last night too, not too far up from here. Amazing there are two of our reader/commenters (that we know of) who are in a hospital right now with mystery. Thinking of you both.

    Glad to hear BB’s pup got looked at by a vet. Uh…can’t remember who or what else I wanted to commen Ugh, not Brandi or Hoanna…I needed a break from them, lol!

  45. TexasTart says:

    Lulu, I hardly think a non-proposal equates to the question of worse propsal, but the answer would be none. I asked him what he remembers and the same as me…just remember talking about it and doing so in short order. There is more of a story to it, maybe for anotherme.

    Good day everyone! 😀

    • TexasTart says:

      **another time. Been together 31 years without any traditional fanfare.

        Good Morning TT!!!! I thought about my proposal after reading dumb(insert word) Vito’s over the top proposal to Kakaface. Congratulations on 31 years!!!!!! Nice!!!
        That will be my next question 31 years secrets to longevity!! 🙂

        • TexasTart says:

          Good morning, Lulu. That’s a good question too. I think it’s not too late for Vito

          RUN VITO RUN!!! 😮

            Nope its not to late.. He has up until they are in front of the Priest. But its all for the

          • Lulu says:

            I’m very much on board with the “Save Vito!!!” campaign!! How long before the divorce?? 6 month’s once she realizes that he can’t afford to feed her and buy that Birkin in the same month!

    Good morning TexasTart, Cartwheels & everyone. Happy Saturday.
    I’m also hoping SoutheastVA & T-Rex are improving. I want you ladies home enjoying the holidays w/your family. BIG hug to you both.
    I tell you I’ve got to stop watchibg GMA on Saturday mornings. I don’t usually watch it on Saturday & this is the 2nd one in a row & its throwing me off. I think it’s Friday & have to shake the cobwebs out of my head. 🙂 Bit its Saturday & raining. I hope you all have a great day.

  47. Powell says:

    OK chismosa that was Big Ang not Carla. Hmm. So no crazy Lo or whatever her name is. No lying Carla. No fighting Karen & Morona (thks MTH 😉 ). I hope its a good season. No more MW Chicago?

    • chismosa©®™ says:

      I liked Karen and Ramona so I’m upset. I always like the people others hate! Lol

      I hate Drita always have always will and love Renee but this must have caused a schism in her friendship with Karen and Ramona since Renee’s sister is the producer. I would have loved to see a jailhouse wedding. Giggle
      Whatevs ….I’ll give it a shot.

      Thanks Powell!

  48. Lulu says:

    Good Morning everyone!!!! What a lovely day so far!! Tomorrow is Aiden’s baptism and yes I will post a picture of him in his white tuxedo complete with tails!!! 🙂 So much to do today!! Found out yesterday that we are officially moving to SEATTLE!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 I’m excited!!! Don’t know how feel about driving from Illinois to Seattle!?!?! with two boys and a little dog!!! yikes!!! This time we are forgoing movers! I had nothing but horrible horrible experiences with them from scratching my brand new furniture, ruined beyond repair my platform bed then losing boxes. This happened with the last 3 companies!!! We are doing it somewhat ourselves. Will have help loading/unloading.

    What is wrong with Lisa!!!! She was an @ss to Joanna Kupa!! That was over the top. What an ugly person.

  49. Powell says:

    Lulu how are the Governor & President doing? Cute little guys.

    The President & Just Jack will celebrate their 1st Thanksgiving & Christmas.

      Good Morning Powell!! Both are doing just fine!! Preparing the Governor for school 😦 and Mr President aka “Mr Giggles” is happily causing mischief. He will have a little of thanksgiving dinner 🙂 pureed squash that is.

      Did you catch up on the latest episode of MoS?? (always want to add Def to that!)

    • BB says:

      Powell, Just Jack is so adorable I could just eat him up. He has four teeth now! He’s a happy little guy and the light of my life. His other grandmother is going to babysit him tonight so my daughter and her husband can have a date night.

  50. TexasTart says:

    VV & chismosa, I found the post yesterday about Ana and her upcoming web site/blog. She is very wise, don’t you think, to draw traffic to her new site? With the notion that one day she will write about her RHOM experience? Very clever, but I’m not holding my breath!

    • VV™ says:

      It is her “word” she said she would write a blog about it, if she doesn’t she loses credibility with her fans. She might do it for traffic ( good point ). However, she’s still under contract with Bravo and I’m sure she’ll be careful.

      • TexasTart says:

        I saw the “absolutley!” Tweet indicating she would, but she’s already given answers like this before, so it’s not feeling like her “word” to me. It’s fragmented and vague. Safe to say the credibility is waining from my POV.

        • VV™ says:

          Shocked! ( for real)
          She has so many fans. You know I don’t follow Miami. So, my feel for these HWs is limited. If she’s done it before like you stated, then I my perception of her and what I have read about her is BS. She’s not straight shooter. IMO

        • chismosa©®™ says:

          How is she still under contract ?
          I need a legal analysis here. Show is most likely cancelled.

          Ughhh 🙇🙇🙇🙇🙇

          I’m still going to read it. Hope it doesn’t break my phone.

  51. lulu says:

    T-Rex how are you feeling this morning?? Hopefully comfortable!!

  52. VV™ says:

    Thanks for Top Chef. Once again, I keep on forgetting to watch this show. I’m sticking to my Emeril theory. I don’t think everybody likes him (I don’t). The show was more credible when they featured the less know ( to the masses Chefs) but very accomplished and successful than the “celebrity” types like Emeril). I just don’t think he belongs on this show.
    I think you are right about Last Time Kitchen. I think the chef they think has the best talent is the one that moves forward and not necessarily the chef that did the best dish. I never liked this mini-competition anyways. I thought it cheapen the show.

  53. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Ok -I know most of you are over the Brandi/Joanna thing but please indulge me for a few more minutes…this is a clip of Brandi explaining why how she got involved-can we just take notice of the fact that she talk like an idiot-today is her 41st birthday-she talks like a 16 year old(-she annoys me so I may be a bit biased in this opinion-she could be talking like a grown up I just see it differently because I’m blinding by my utter dislike of her).


    • chismosa©®™ says:

      I’m in the minority. Not over it if it brings the Ho out !


    • VV™ says:

      Of course we’ll watch it because if you endured it so must we!😜

      She never, not once, no never addresses why she told such personal information about Yofo and MH to Adriana. Adriana clearly says that Brandi told her that MH slept with JK.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

        I watched it b/c I need to see how annoying she is-she did not disappoint!!
        Adrianna states that Brandi said Yolanda told her about Joanna and Mohamad in confidence-Brandi doesn’t know what “in confidence” means…what a friggen blabber mouth!! But it’s not her fault-it’s all Andy’s fault for asking and airing what was said during the Miami reunion-it’s not Brandi’s fault that she said gross things about Joanna-she needed to WIN!! Winning is big for Brandi!!! Nothing is ever her fault-ever!!

        • VV™ says:

          Blameless Brandi. We just might have to add an extra B to her name. Blameless Brandi Blah Blah = BBBB

        • TexasTart says:

          Charlie Sheen, whom I detest was all about winning while under threat of his ship sinking. Why can’t these LOSERS go away?!

    I’m thinking with Vito will be groomed to run the Brownstone. I’m sure Al wants to retire and since his own kids don’t want anything to do with it, Vito is the chosen one. Unless, there are other family members on Al’s side that will step up and fill those shoes. I know small business can be profitable but I doubt Vito’s salary from his parents store is enough to provide for Lauren’s lifestyle.
