Vanderpump Rules – S3Ep03

“Only the Lonely” by HydrangeaHussy

Lisa and Dani, a server, are preparing flowers for the restaurant.  One thing I love about Lisa’s places is the fact that she always has fresh flowers!  And she does her own arrangements, which I would never be able to do.  Jax arrives to pick up his check & reminds Lisa that the group is going out of town for the night.  First, he is going to apologize to Stassi’s mother for his behavior.  He hopes to get in good with her family so he can win her back.  Tom & Kristen are also going on the trip.  This is not a trip I would want to go on – it seems like it’ll be a bunch of fighting couples.

The group is gathering at Katie’s for the trip.  Stassi tells us that her parents & divorced.  She usually visits her mom, brother & sister monthly.  She’s bringing the whole crew with her this time.  Tom is excited because his band is opening for an 80’s band.  Tom immediately begins describing a fight that he had with Kristen about how much time he spends with his band.  They begin arguing in the car.  Stassi interjects & takes Kristen’s side.  Katie says that she’s hit her limit with the two of them & she doesn’t understand how Kristen continues to stay so unhappy.  I don’t either.  We’re only three episodes in & I’m over them.

They immediately hit the beach at lake Arrowhead.  The girls ask Jax to take his shirt off so they can see his tattoo.  He still hasn’t told Stassi that he had her signature tattooed on his arm.  Jax isn’t sure if she’ll love it or hate it.  He says that, based on their recent date (which ended horribly), she could go either way.  I’m thinking that she’ll be appalled.  She is speechless when she sees it.  They just had a huge fight & she told him about her feelings for Frank.  Tom points out that Jax is lucky she doesn’t want a restraining order.  Stassi tells the girls that it makes her soften toward him a little.  She hopes that he can reconcile with her family.

They arrive at Stassi’s mom’s house.  She moved to Lake Arrowhead after losing her home in Hurricane Katrina.  Jax says that he’s nervous about seeing Stassi’s mother, Dayna.  Dayna welcomes all of the girls & is friendly to Jax.  She is surprised that Jax had the balls to come.  Stassi tells her about the tattoo & Dayna is shocked.  Dayna asks why he would do that.  She wonders if Stassi has done anything to lead him to believe they can reconcile.  She tells her mother that she told him to move on at dinner, but she then allowed him to come on the trip.  Stassi is definitely sending out mixed signals.  She is loving the attention.

Back at Sur, Lisa & Nathalie meet with a wine dealer to make some changes to the menu.  Lisa is old fashioned & screw-top wine makes her nervous.  The first wine is a rose, which Lisa loves.  Peter loves the cabernet.  Lisa agrees to add two of the four wines.

At Lake Arrowhead, the group is having dinner.  Dayna is ready to go out for the night.  She sends everyone to get ready & asks Jax to stay for a talk.  They begin with a shot of tequila to take the nerves off.  Dayna asks for an explanation of how Jax hurt her daughter.  I like Dayna, she’s very direct.  She’s also very angry at the way Jax treated Stassi.  She tells Jax that Stassi was planning to marry him.  He admits to cheating on Stassi.  Dayna points out that Stassi believed that Jax was ‘the one’ & he betrayed her.  She asks what he’s doing now.  He says that he’s trying to get his life together, to which Dayna rolls her eyes & has more tequila.  He says that he loves her, but can’t give a real reason.  He can’t look Dayna in the face while he’s talking.  She agrees to tolerate him for the night & that they will work from there.

Peter mentions to Lisa that Scheana’s injuries are beginning to get on the nerves of the other staff.  The staff believes that Lisa is babying her & that Scheana is exaggerating.  Lisa doesn’t want to get involved in the staff drama.  Peter agrees to step in as needed.

The Lake Arrowhead group is at a restaurant, having margaritas.  Tom says that it’s obvious that Stassi & her mother are very much alike.  Kristen is annoyed with everything Tom does.  When he mentions a pair of glasses, she cattily points out that he just got them but is acting like he wears them all of the time.  Actually, he never said that he wore them.  Just not necessary to put down or belittle your significant other like that.  She’s been drinking & isn’t making much sense.  Everyone seems uncomfortable.

Jax & Tom go to the bar, where Jax tells Tom that a person can only take so much belittling.  It’s getting embarrassing.  Stassi tells the girls that Kristen & Tom argue constantly.  Even though Tom cheated on Kristen, Stassi kind of feels sorry for him because this is his big weekend.  Kristen wants their relationship to be a priority.  Katie points out that this has been going on for a year & Kristen should leave him.  Kristen says that it isn’t that simple.

Tom attempts to say goodnight to Kristen, but she won’t let him touch her.  Kristen retreats to the girl’s home & Tom tries to talk to Kristen.  Katie jumps in the middle.  They kick Tom out of the room.  Jax tells Tom that they should have broken up a year ago.  That advice, coming from a man who won’t let go of Stassi, is laughable.

In the morning, Stassi & her mom are discussing how awkward everything is.  Dayna tells Stassi that Jax is trying to win her back.  She asks how many mistakes Jax is allowed to make.  Stassi still has feelings for him, but doesn’t want to get hurt again.  Dayna tells her that it’s been a year, she needs to make a decision.  Jax is playing video games with Stassi’s 8-yr-old brother.  He brings up that he knows Jax cheated on Stassi.  He suggests that Jax talk to Stassi & promise not to be mean anymore.  Jax could learn a lot from this kid.

Lisa arrives at Sur.  Kristina is covering for Scheana because something is wrong with her eye.  She points out that Scheana is always hurt.  Lisa tells Kristina not to cover for her if she’s frustrated.  Kristina says that she doesn’t dislike Scheana, but that she doesn’t always like the things that she says or does.

Peter & Other Tom arrive at Lake Arrowhead.  Other Tom asks about the previous night & Kristen tells Tom to apologize.  He says that he doesn’t want to get into what happened & isn’t apologizing.  In 2 seconds, Kristen makes the lunch very uncomfortable for everyone.  Tom says that he was hurt because he tried to tell her goodnight & she pushed him away.  He tells Katie that he’s sorry that she was caught in their drama.  He gets very upset & says that he’s tired of the fighting.  This is what Kristen has wanted – Tom tearing up at lunch with his friends?  Stassi & Jax talk about his tattoo.  She likes it, but says that he’ll get rid of it when he gets mad at her.  Her mom is right, she needs to make a decision ASAP & stop leading Jax on.

Scheana arrives at Sur wearing huge glasses.  Lisa wants to talk to her about the shifts that have been covered.  Scheana says that her contact scratched her eye & she had to go the doctor.  Lisa points out that her eyes look fine.  Lisa tells her to stop playing the victim.  Scheana says that she doesn’t like being hurt, but it’s pretty clear that she loves the attention it gives her.  Lisa points out that the girls already have an issue & that Scheana needs to stop giving them ammunition.

Tom’s band is ready to play!  The entire group is there to support him.  Kristen seems to genuinely enjoy seeing Tom on stage.  She says that times like this remind her of why she loves him.  She says that she wouldn’t trade her relationship for anyone else’s.  Tom joins the group after his performance.  Kristen gives me a big hug & kiss.  Stassi sees them in the same place years from now, still fighting.  Kristen says that Tom is really trying, for the first time in a long time.  She begins to realize that he’s actually sorry for cheating.

Back at the house, Stassi & Jax go downstairs to talk.  She remembers all of the trips that they have taken together.  Stassi says that it’s weird to have him there again.  She is making the effort to give him a chance with her family.  Dayna is still upset.  Jax says that he needs verification from Stassi, like a hug.  She says that he’s needy.  Stassi seems to enjoy Jax begging for a kiss, which she gives him.  She says that it feels nice to be back there with him.

________________________________________

I think Stassi is on Bethenny today – if you want to see more of her.  She and Jax were on WWHL this week.  They were annoying.  Stassi sat with her shoulder to Jax (literally giving him the cold shoulder) and said we’d have to watch the rest of the season to understand why.  Is she in middle school?  NMD

Top Chef New Orleans (S11E8) “Piggin’ Out” by BB

The chefs walk into the kitchen and see musical icon Dr. John.  For the quickfire challenge, they will be making Dr. John’s favorite condiment, hot sauce.  I know people who put hot sauce on everything, and I mean everything.  Don’t know why they want to cover the flavor of food with hot sauce, but to each his/her own.

Dr. John tells them in a gravelly voice “I know y’all gonna do a hip maneuver.  I can dig that flava and hiptang to it.  If it has flavanosity of the highest order and it has tangnocity that mixes in, killer sauce.  I hit it, can’t quit it.”  They have 45 minutes to prepare and bottle the perfect hot sauce.  The winner will get immunity in the elimination challenge.  Some of the chefs are making Caribbean sauce, some are making Mexican sauce, and some are making Asian sauce.

TC 5 3After Dr. John measures each sauce by its hip tanginess and off the hookness, he announces his least favorite sauces, which belonged to Nicholas, Carrie, and Nina.  He liked the hot sauces made by Brian, Justin and Carlos.  The winner is Brian.  This is his second immunity in a row.

TC 5 1The elimination challenge:  Toby Rodriguez (Artist/Butcher/Chef) and guest judge Chef Donald Link come into the kitchen with a cart containing a whole pig.  They will be doing a boucherie (sp), where the community comes together to break the pig down and splitting off to prepare different food items.  The chefs will have to butcher the 300 lb. hog together.  There will be 250 guests at the dinner.  They must use the whole hog.  They will be attending supper that evening to see how a boucherie (sp) works.

They all get together over the hog and decide what portion they want and how to butcher it.  None of the chefs seem squeamish about breaking down the hog.  Sara is bossing everyone around but not really helping them butcher.  Nina and Nicholas split the head of the pig.  Justin and Carlos are both doing tacos and there is some competitive talk between them about who will be making the best Mexican tacos.

TC 5 4The next day the chefs arrive at the Bayou Barn to find all kinds of outdoor cooking equipment.  Some of the chefs are familiar with the equipment and some aren’t.  They have 2 hours to prepare their meals.  Justin gets mad when he spends a long time building a fire on his grill and then everyone starts using it.  Stephanie sees an alligator on the other side of the bamboo fence and freaks out a little, but then has to forget about him to finish her dish.  With 30 minutes left, Justin’s grill flames up and overcooks his pork.

It’s time to eat and Nina’s dish tastes flat, so she quickly adds some cayenne pepper.  Here are the dishes served by the chefs:  Brian (Porchetta with oyster mushrooms); Sara (pork dim sum); Justin (Wood roasted pork breast taco); Carlos (pozole verde with fried chorizo taco); Shirley (Jiaozi dumpling); Louis (slow grilled pork leg with spring onions); Stephanie (pork brodo with braised pork belly); Travis (Cajun-style pork ramen); Carrie (crispy trotters); Nicholas (Tete de cochon with summer beans); and Nina (braised pig’s head ragu).  As Tom says, this is going to be a tough one judging wise.

While the chefs watch, the judges discuss the dishes.  Tom thought it was one of the best meals in 11 seasons.  The judges loved Shirley’s, Nina’s, Brian’s, and Carlos’ dishes.  They thought Justin’s meat was a little dry.  He totally disagrees.  Tom didn’t like Louis’ corn and his popcorn was unnecessary.  They also didn’t like Travis or Stephanie’s dishes.

TC 5 2Padma comes in a gets Nina, Shirley and Carlos.  Shirley tells the judges about being at her grandma’s house in China and making dumplings.  Carlos was also inspired by his mom’s cooking in making his pozole.  Nina tells them it was exciting for her to use a part of the pig along with the others.  The winner by a slim, narrow margin is Carlos.

TC 5 LouisNext come the bottom chefs for this week; Justin, Louis and Stephanie.  Justin tells them he’s surprised to be standing there.  Tom and Hugh liked Justin’s, but Padma and the guest judge got dry pieces of pork.  Something was missing from Stephanie’s dish.  Louis tried to do too much with the popcorn.  He had too many ideas going on and didn’t “treasure” the pig according to Hugh.  The guest judge hated the popcorn.  Padma tells Louis to pack his knives and go.

Last Chance Kitchen:  This was more of a commercial for the Toyota Corolla than anything else.  Janine and Louis are given $25 and 15 minutes to shop at a fresh market.  When they get back, Tom tells them they must choose only three ingredients from their shopping bags and make their dish in 20 minutes.  Janine makes a catfish dish and Louis makes a prawn (shrimp) dish.  Louis wins and Janine is crushed because the competition is over for her.

  12. plainviewsue says:

    On a happier note, oldest is finally leaving the nest!! He is moving to Astoria, Queens tomorrow with a roommate. Really nice two bedroom apartment in a prewar building. He started a brand new job in Manhattan about two weeks ago in advertising sales, which he absolutely loves. It’ll be strange not to have him here, but I still have my youngest. He’s moving to Manhattan on May first, when his friend’s roommate moves out.

    Welcome to the empty nest!!!!

    • California35 says:

      Happy for you and for him 🙂 they do need to leave the nest, for their own good 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Congrats on your oldest…sounds like a really juicy job!!!! Oh to be young! Mine just relocated from Brooklyn back to Austin, Tx. If he’d had such a nice set up in Manhattan, like your oldest, I think he would never want to come back to Tx. You must be very proud!

      Congratulations sue. I’m sure he will be over every Sunday night for dinner. 🙂

    • VV™ says:

      Congrats!!!!!!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Congrats PVS. Astoria is SO hip right now. It’s like the new Brooklyn.

      I’m there about 2x a month for greek food.
      Hope he enjoys it.
      And hope you’re feeling better yourself …..

  13. Amalfi says:

    I had Wendy on — she was making Turducken with some country singer…. if I have to hear Wendy smack her food I will be ill. Alternative — turn it off which is usually the wise option. Seriously.

    She is funny and sometimes I agree with her but really — does she not have anyone in her life who will tell her how completely disgusting she sounds when she eats food on tv?

    • shamrockblonde says:

      that was the incredible John Rich!!! – love that man –

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I don’t mind it when Wendy does it in TV, But please don’t do that at my table. That angers me.

      • Amalfi says:

        Hahhaha… she is so pretty and put together but has the tabe manners of a Eliza Doolittle before the transformation or an orphan from a Dicken’s novel.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        I can still remember when when the VP of a company I used to work for walked into the reception area and observed the receptionist sitting there chewing her gum with her mouth open – it was noisy but echo-y too because of the way the reception area was set up – he walked up to her and said “what are you a cow, chewing on her cud? this is unacceptable! the last thing I want is for you to be the first impression that potential customers have of this firm – pack your things up and get off the desk, right now – come back when you learn how to chew with your mouth closed”. the next day a memo went out stating that anyone who manned the front desk was not alllowed to eat, chew gum or drink any carbonated beverage while at the desk –

    Original Message:

    We don’t know the context AND it was clearly edited in the scene when Kyle looked upset. Kyle knows this BUT loves to play victim.

    • T-Rex says:

      Doesn’t she realize that on EVERY BLOG out there she is being crucified for placing herself on the “proverbial cross” and playing this stupid victim storyline. It’s an EPIC.FAIL. The only love she is getting is from some random folks on twitter.

    • kit9 says:

      This tweet makes an excellent point. Lisa was sooo helpful helping Yoyo finish her point, like she just couldn’t sit by and let Yo bungle it. Lisa’s so helpful that way.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        She helped her Because Yofo has LymeBrain! I wondered when someone was gonna notice that YoFo never said that…Lisa said it!! Bwahahahaha! I laughed when it happened. Not hard. But I laughed.

        • VV™ says:

          Lainey, we saw and heard Yofo say whatever she said. We didn’t see Lisa’s lips moving, we only “heard her voice” on the scene. Bravo coul’ve inserted it there. I still think this was taken out if context. Bravo is well known for that.
          I watched the scene again, Kyle did not take offense at first. In fact, she commented …they’ve done it to all of us…..being in the limelight…
          When did her attitude change to waterworks USA?

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

            When Lisa said “where theres smoke there’s fire…that’s when waterworks started b/c Lisa was insinuating that the rumors have truth to them.

            • VV™ says:

              According to Bravo editing.

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

                Lisa did use those exact words in her blog so that makes me think she really did say it right then at the table

                • VV™ says:

                  From Lisa’s Blog:
                  ” Do I believe there is smoke without fire? Oh yes, plumes of it, that billow from these vapid pages that strive to humiliate and demean us. That is part of the territory and what we signed up for.”

                  We still don’t know the context of the statement. Again, we don’t know if she made that comment at the exact moment Bravo showed it because I didn’t see her face uttering those words. She could have been talking about somebody or something else and Bravo inserted statement there. Bravo edits the Blogs as well.

  17. Powell says:

    Happy Birthday LaineyLainey. Have a blast w/your babes. 🙂

  18. Powell says:

    Good afternoon everyone. T G I F. 🙂 It’s been drizzling on & off but it looks like Mr. Sunshine wants it to be a beautiful day. Have a fantabulous day.

  19. Powell says:

    chismosa you may have said this but I’m watching Wendy W & Taylor Armstrong & her BF will be on Couples Therapy in Jan. Hmmm. What’s their problem? That she took a supposedly happily married man away from his wife? I’m kidding but wouldn’t that be interesting if that’s what they discuss?

  20. Nancy says:

    Happy Birthday Lainey. 🙂

  21. Lulu says:

    Nancy spill it how was “date” night!!!! 😉

    • Nancy says:

      Hi lulu…It was great. My sister and her husband came with us which was the first
      time we ever double “dated”. How do you like The House of God?

      • Lulu says:

        Sounds like a wonderful night!! I only read the first chapter so far all I have to say is wow!! Yikes! I can only imagine the physical and mental stress doctor’s go through. Definitely puts things in perspective.

        • Nancy says:

          lulu…what kind of work does your husband do? I’m wondering because of your
          move to Seattle.

          • Lulu says:

            DH is in Information Technology.

              • Lulu says:

                Seattle is (one of) the lands of IT. An employer contacted him about a position back in June then again in August. This is only one but hoping that once they know that we are definitely moving with a date set. That they will pull the trigger and hire him! That is if he hasn’t found a job already. I can’t wait!!! Remember that commercial “Callagon take me away” it’s “Seattle take me away!!!” sooner then later that is!

                Are Doctors not allowed to date their patients? What happens to them if they do? It just seems silly to me that their are consequences.

                • Nancy says:

                  I’m confused. Has he been hired already or not?
                  It is unethical for a doctor to date his patients but it’s not a crime. However you can get into some serious trouble with the Medical Boards. A psychiatric can never cross that
                  line but an Internist can date if it’s been over 5 yrs. I can’t remember where I read
                  this so don’t quote me on it. lol

                  • Lulu says:

                    No hasn’t hired him. They continue to show interest in him but refuse to pull the trigger. I think it’s due to the relocation issue. Not many employers are willing to pay for that. Which is unfortunate. That is only one company there are others…..

                    Why is it unethical??? What would it really matter?

  22. ItzAngeeDuh says:

    Happy birthday Lainey Lainey! Sounds so nice, I have to say it twice!

    Happy birthday to the girl so nice that they had to name her twice – LaineyLainey!!!

  24. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! We have a winter storm hitting Arizona today and this weekend. Snow up in the mountains and heavy rain/flooding here in Phoenix area. Woke up to heavy rains and a flooded backyard. Lifted up my blinds and my bathroom window had snails all over it. Now we have lived in this house for 25 years and I have never seen a snail. Well when it got lighter I looked out back on the pool deck and it is covered in snails. Hundreds of them. Of course when the rain stopped Pepper went out and started licking them all. #butthead#

    • Nancy says:

      Down here in LA the wind kept me up most of the night. Is Pepper eating the snails?

    • California35 says:

      I hope it doesn’t get too bad AZ.
      It’s cold and and windy here. Just came back in from walking my dog and i will stay in ALL day 🙂

      My dog ignores the snails. There are a lot over here. Once i a while she would smell one and keep going 😛

    • Lulu says:

      Ewwwww!!!!!!!!! Pepper NOOOO!!! Bad dog!!! 😉 How is she feeling?

      If I could I’d rather deal with snails, spiders, ants then MICE!!!!!!! ;(

      • Lulu says:

        Gross but true my neurotic hid under the bed because he’s scared of the governor dog. Who is a Jackapoo (Jack russell terrier/Poodle mix) ate a mouse?!?! Did not know he had it in him he’s skidish around everything!

        • AZGirl says:

          I think Pepper has some terrier in her. Terrier’s are fearless. I am home and she is driving me NUTS! Still raining and all her toys are out on the grass in the backyard. I am not going out in the rain to retrieve them.

  25. Happy Birthday Lainey Lainey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. T-Rex says:

    Okay, so STFUBrandi did all those tweets about how we were supposed to “pay attention PUH-LEEZE” and we were all haters, we need to watch, yadda yadda yadda. Well a mere few shows in and yep we get it, we think your a drunken idiot, that lives in your own world of what the “truth” actually is since it’s now known as “my truth”, and now you are trying to justify your poor behaviour on being in a “dark” place this season. Hmmmmmm Let’s see, your ManCandy officially “left the building” back in 2009, you have been on the show for two seasons, in addition you have admitted Man-Candy has cheated on you since before you were even married, and you participated in these extra-marital affairs by having threesomes with him. You spent last season sucking off the good graces of a very rich woman, who helped you make contacts, helped you attend dinners and parties you would never been a part of, uhm so you weren’t depressed then, not when drinks were free and so was the company. You also wrote a book at this time, uhm not depressed. BUT, the minute you throw the rich woman under the bus and EVERYONE that was on the STFUBrandi-bandwagon(me included), started seeing your TRUE drunk ass, uncooth tactics, including Tampon-gate, you all of a sudden need an excuse for this behaviour, without admitting you have a serious alcohol problem. You would rather show your tits and cooch all over the planet, on every tabloid and website that anyone, even a 10 year old boy, can find, but you are more ashamed to have someone say you need rehab. Give me a break!

    • VV™ says:

      What she said ☝️👏👏👏

    • California35 says:

      Agree. Now I’m not doubting she was in a dark place (or still is), but i dont like that is her defense for her behavior – all the time? She uses the defense that she is honest and tells the truth, as soon as she is called on it then she uses her “poor me” attitude – single mother, broke, hurt. And says those calling her on her big mouth are being mean. How about her being mean with telling other people’s truth?

      I think she is just navigating this show not really knowing what she is doing. She may have a plan, but then it changes because she messes up. Either with her drinking or with her anger that makes her say things she regrets later. Having Lisa or Yolanda as friends would help because they are mature and can help her. But they can distance themselves from her because of her behavior. O coure wont see it that way.

    • Prince Ali says:

      What Brandi does not get about her situation is that simply because you are not Team LeAnn doesn’t mean you have to be Team Brandi. They are both Team Stupid and Eddie is Team Asshole. (btw, I realize that my screen name is a bit misleading, I’m a woman)

      I think that Sarah Taylor says it really well:
      For instance, if you should just casually skim through Brandi’s words, you come away with a heartwarming feeling that Brandi’s a real and genuine person who’s endured some awful stuff and is brave and confident enough to admit — publicly — that she’s still allowing life to teach her daily lessons. Good stuff. Moving on.

      If you go back and read it a second time, then you might see a woman — “four and a half years later” — who’s refusing to stop perpetuating her own heartbreak. And that’s sad.

    Chismosa yesterday I know you were not talking about me 😉 I know you were referring to Countess without the “o” no worries! 🙂 Have you caught up on MoS? So not exactly the same but I started reading “House of God” by Samuel Shem. Kinda similar about doctors…..and sex omg! That’s all I have to say. Interesting book.

    Happy Your Day, Lainey-Lainey, from the other Lainey. Take the whole weekend as yours!

    Hello All. WTH is up with the mia culpa but don’t hold me accountable blog of Brandi’s? Either you did or you didn’t, you do or you don’t. Can’t be both. I really liked Brandi when she first came on the franchise. A nemesis of my most disliked HW made a supporter out of me. However, when she turned so nastily on Lisa, who I clearly didn’t like because of her catty comments and sly machinations, forced me to re-evaluate my thoughts on Lisa who I now, (shuddering) am supporting! I FINALLY KNOW WHAT “NEW” TERESA FANS FELT ABOUT THE JOISEY GANG UP MENTALITY!!! Now that everyone is gunning for Lisa I find myself wanting to defend her as her actions aren’t worse than those of the others. Also the relationship she had with all the women, especially Brandi, was very quid pro quo. THEY ALL GOT SOMETHING OUT OF IT!! So for Brandi to cry that she was manipulated while she sipped the finest spirits at the best parties courtesy of VanderpumpRump… she needs to have several effing seats and STFup!

    • California35 says:

      Hahaha, is like saying “i cant believe she used me while i was using her” 😛

    • T-Rex says:

      Exactly my point, while she was sipping on that free booze at Sur and Villa Blanca, and being invited to sit at the VIP tables at both to meet and schmooze with the best that BHills has to offer she wasn’t complaining! But when LisaV didn’t fire someone because STFUBrandi wanted her to, well then, that didn’t sit well with her, in addition, I am sure LisaV was starting to roll that red carpet up quite a bit, as STFUBrandi started being a potential liability every time she went out in public. LisaV doesn’t needs tits/cooters hanging out in her lovely place of business, and so now SFTUBrandi decides to turn on her because well, STFUBrandi thinks she has all these new contacts and friends, well you don’t. You have the DICK sisters, way to go!

      Hey Amber. I don’t know what is wrong w/Brandi. But any time I start siding w/Adrienne, cough, cough, I hate that & it pisses me off, I am no longer in support of her drunken, nasty mouth, naked ways. They might as well have kept Taylor. So what’s she gonna do when she has no friends on the
      show?

  30. Nancy says:

    lulu…What happens if he doesn’t get hired? Have you found a house yet? I hope you are
    getting some help with all of the packing.

    It’s unethical due to the shift in power.

    • Powell says:

      Nancy do you remember the case where the wife killed her Psychiatrist husband who was 30-40 yrs older than her, he was her psych when she was 15yrs old? They were having sex. Her mom stopped him from being her doc. When she turned 18 he divorced his wife & married her. When she went out trial she represented herself & tried to introduce their past as evidence trying to say he always was dominant over her. I think her name is Susan. She got life for stabbing him to death.

      • Nancy says:

        No I don’t but this is exactly why you shouldn’t date your patients.
        What a sad story. I’ll try to look it up.

        • Anne says:

          Susan Polk. Convicted several years ago — i think in CA. Actually, it is unethical for most professionals (doctors, lawyers, ministers, etc) to have a personal (ie. sexual or dating) relationship with clients/patients/members of congregation. Doctors and lawyers have codes of conduct that are part of state licensure regulations and can have licenses suspended in most (if not all) jurisdictions for such behavior. The same is true for at least some other health professionals — I’m most familiar with social worker and psychology licensure rules, but I suspect that the same holds true for just about all healthcare professionals.

    • lulu says:

      No change no choice! At least I’m not pregnant that will make things easier.

      Shift in power? Interesting. I can see it with a psychiatrist they would need to be the “dominant” one. But a general practitioner???

      I watched MM the first couple of episodes before despising Patti Stinker. I remember her greatest “advice” for women to meet men of “money.” Is to stand outside hospitals, stock exchange or banks dressed like a prostitute will attract a man. The absolute worst advice. I have to wonder if these type of women stalk doctors as patients.

      • Nancy says:

        Anytime you start a relationship when one of the parties is in a higher position
        it’s not a 50-50 partnership. It wouldn’t be an issue if he/her wasn’t the others
        physician. Patti Stinker is a disgusting person. I’m not surprised at all that she
        would give that kind of advise.

        I will be keeping my fingers crossed about Seattle. It’s a beautiful city and I have
        spent a lot of time up there. You will love it.

    Sue congrats to your son w/the new job & apartment. Tell him now you’ve got a place to crash when you want quiet time while he’s out. 🙂

    AZGirl I haven’t seen snails in a long time. When I was a kid in the summer snails would come out & we would pour salt on them to make them slimmy. Don’t ask me why we did it. It was a summertime pastime.

    Nancy I watched. Not enough lust for me between Elizabeth and mr Darcy, oh sorry I mean Virginia and William.
    LOL!

    The gorgeous ortho doc has ISSUES.

    The issue with the female ob/gyn reminds me of one of my fave 80s movies, it’s about medical school – called Gross Anatomy

    • Nancy says:

      Hi chismosa…ITA but he’s such a d*ck so I’m not sure we would be seeing sparks
      with anyone as he’s just not likable. I love the therapy sessions with Dr Issues.
      “Isn’t our time up already?” Too funny. Big mommy issues.

      I feel sorry for Dr Stick-up-her-butt too but now we know why. I didn’t even catch this
      lulu did. She has stage 4 cervical cancer so that’s why her research study is so
      important to her. Back then nobody really cared about female diseases. That’s
      kind of true today as the FDA doesn’t like doing trials on females.

    • lulu says:

      I agree Dr Masters and I’m good for one thing only have no “spark.”. It was never a passionate I’m warm for your form sex well not for Virginia atleast. I don’t think at first she was attracted to him? Then again its kinda hard reading Lizzy Caplan’s bad acting.

      Mr Ortho has major issues that’s for sure!! He’s sleazy!!

      Before I had the governor the type of birth you had was a major issue. The docs about obs as butchers and unless you had a midwife and perfect vaginal birth you failed as a women. Where women are concerned I have to wonder is the social driving force the reason our “diseases” and research are far behind? It drove the “labor and delivery” to completly ridiculous standards.

    I’m sooooo tired of Brandi. Boo Hoo Eddie left her. Boo Hoo she’s a single mom. Boo Hoo, I’m in a dark place. Get up and brush yourself off, enough. It’s been years of complaining.

    Get a job. Go volunteer. Spend more time with your kids. Go back to school. ANYTHING. Just shut up Brandi.

  43. ladebra says:

    Hey LaineyPie! Tell your baby girl it’s snowing in Wrightwood ! It’s really going to feel like Thanksgiving 😉🍗

    • LaineyLainey says:

      That’s in San Bernardino, right? IT’S SNOWING there?

      • ladebra says:

        80 miles outside of LA. San Bernadino County, but it’s ski country so it’s 80 miles out and up lol. But it’s the closest ski area I think. But it’s just snowing to beat the band!

  44. KTinCT says:

    I’m so very late to the blog today so Happy Birthday/night, LaineyLainey 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Thank you, sweet KT! Just got home from dinner out with my hubby and our two kids. It was wonderful! THEY are wonderful!!! I hope you and your loved ones are well. What doyou have planned for thanksgiving?

    Klye, a word of advice, stay off Twitter and get a life. If that is asking for too much, get a hobby.

    • TexasTart says:

      Yep, too much Twitter is never a good thing – unless it comes in the form of receiving tweets to congratulate or birthday wishes, that would be a good problem to have!

  48. VV™ says:

    I did not know Yolanda and David married on 11-11-2011. They’ve been married for 2 years. I don’t know why I thought they’ve been married a lot longer.

    • chismosa™ says:

      That’s the date a lot of people chose I think- didn’t klassy Kim Z get married on that date ? Throwing out her mom from her house bathroom or something ?

      Yeah that’s not long at all …..

    • Cartwheels says:

      That is because her marriage to Mohammed was never finalized until 2011, she said last season that she has been with David for seven years. She started dating David a year after her separation but it took her 5 years to get divorced so go figure.

  49. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Ok seriously Brandi? Who does this??

    • boston02127 says:

      You can pay hookers in check?

    • BB says:

      Gotta spend that money on something important. Time to make an appointment with the plastic surgeon. I’m sure she thinks something needs tweaking.

    • TexasTart says:

      Endless entertainment, this one. The first thing that came to mind is the same as BB; she would blow it on plastic surgery, why save any for a new home or the kids education, right?! Secondly; flashing money is the same as bearing too much skin. It can be trashy! Often times the same person is not guilty of both – but leave it to Brandi!

  50. ladebra says:

    Oo Oo, I missed this part of Survivor. By the way Jeff, loved the blog. I am loving this season!

    Good morning everyone! Exceptionally cold in Central Texas for this time of year and possible icy activity…can not ever remember this near Thanksgiving…nor November! Anyway, I am good in the weather because for the most part, I’m not IN it, lol.

    Very happy to see Lainey posting that she had a wonderful birthday with family and I’m sure there are more good times ahead for her…I’m sure she will cherish the time with them all under your roof! 🙂

  53. TexasTart says:

    You know, soon as I post this, it will be a new blog, but what the heck.

    What are you doing today? Are you the cook, the maid, the handyman, the shopper….
    Or all of the above?!

    If you are lucky to paper yourself and not be a slave, please don’t tell me, I would be too jealous, jk. 😉

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      Cook, maid and resident NAG this morning!! If I tell my girls one more time to go clean their rooms I’m going to lose my mind!!! I want to sit and watch all the shows I missed this week but first I must clean this disaster area of a home!! I shall reward myself by having a fun filled night out with my sisters and BFF-so it will all be worth it in the end!!
