Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – Do Grown Women Really Act Like This?

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “Palm Springs Breakers” by BB

After watching this episode, several sayings and phrases come to mind:  “Jumped the Shark;” “Past It’s Expiration Date;” and “Another One Bites the Dust,” just to name a few.  This is just my opinion, but I no longer get that certain anticipatory thrill of tuning in like I have in the past.  It could be because of all the “leaks” in the social media before the season even started; It could be because of all the “first looks” provided by Bravo; It could be because of certain cast members providing videotaped apologies beforehand or giving hints in their blogs or on their twitter accounts about things to come;  or it could be because of the lame storylines that are dragged out for an entire season, brought back from the previous season, or recycled from other reality shows.  Whatever the reason(s), it reminds me of the times when I’ve seen great previews about a soon-to-be released theatrical movie, only to pay good money at the movie theater and feeling cheated because all the good scenes were shown in the previews and the rest of the movie pretty much sucked.  I hate when that happens.

Kyle and Carlton meet to shop for Palm Springs.  The shopkeeper tells Kyle how hot she’s looking (because this shopkeeper knows Kyle has body image issues), while Carlton rolls her eyes.  Carlton wants to talk it out with Kyle so she can point out all the egregious things she’s done to her and let her know how they’ve negatively affected her life.  Here is a list of Kyle’s horrible transgressions:  (1) She had the audacity to ask Carlton if she ever explored witchcraft and Carlton felt judged; (2) She had the audacity to walk away in the middle of Carlton’s story about her cat going after a bird; and (3) She had the audacity to talk about Lisa’s nipple-gate acting scene at the Chamber of Commerce party.  As Kyle said about all of this (behind Carlton’s back of course), “Carlton is looking for tits on an ant.”  I like that saying.  They both agree that it’s best to talk it out between the two of them instead of dragging others into it.  I somehow don’t believe Carlton and Kyle are going to be friends anytime soon if ever.   Carlton’s strategically planned agenda is pretty obvious to me.

the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-4-episode-406-29Brandi is meeting with her BFF’s Etirsa, Jennifer and Adrienne to do some “research” for her second book.  She asks them what gets them off sexually.  When they start describing foreplay, techniques Brandi’s man must know, how long it should last, and Brandi thinking you should ask the man to choke you, sometimes to the point of being “choked out,” poor Etirsa looks pretty uncomfortable, while the other three seem to be getting turned on by this totally inappropriate conversation.  If that makes me a prude, I’ll totally cop to it. If this subject matter is the crux of Brandi’s new book, count me out as I’m not interested in the least.

Over at Joyce’s, she’s getting her wardrobe together for the Palm Springs trip.  Joyce says girls dress for girls and she wants to look her best.  Joyce makes no bones about it.  She’s a girly girl, loves to shop, do makeovers on her girlfriends and loves fashion.  How honestly refreshing.   Meanwhile Kim and Kimberly are at a store so Kim can get things for the trip.  Kim thinks Palm Springs is very spiritual.  Kim and Kimberly joke around about vibrating things (like toothbrushes and things in Kim’s drawer).   Kim is hoping this will be one of those trips where everyone gets along.  Oh, Kim.

the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-4-episode-406-22Three separate limos are taking the women to Palm Springs.  In one are Joyce, Kim and Kyle.  They look like they are having fun on the way.  In the second car are the two new besties, Yolanda and Brandi.  Yolanda tells Brandi she thinks she did her first cleanse in Palm Springs.  Brandi tells Yolanda it’s the first time she did cocaine.  When Yolanda’s jaw drops, Brandi assures her she’s just kidding.  They are both already intimating that they want to bring things out into the open for discussion this weekend.  This is not a good sign.  Lisa and Carlton are in the other limo talking about their hostess in not the nicest of ways.

the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-4-episode-406-06Some of these ladies left their good manners at home.  I’m talking about Yolanda, who complained about the sheets not being ironed.   Wasn’t Yolanda just talking last week about her tough childhood?  How soon they forget from whence they came.  Lisa and Yolanda complained about everything from the accommodations to it being hot.  Didn’t they check the weather forecast ahead of time?  the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-4-episode-406-01Brandi continuously called Joyce Jacqueline (admittedly on purpose), then called Joyce black and talked about her weave because she said she couldn’t swim and didn’t want to get into the pool.  Brandi also made a comment about the place being boring because there’s nothing to do.  Then there was the shit stirring at the dinner table by Yolanda, Brandi, and even Lisa, a blow by blow of which I just don’t feel like recapping.  Needless to say, what could have been a pleasant trip and evening turned to crap just like all the other RHOBH trips and dinners in the past.  Has there ever been a happy, fun, no-drama-filled dinner (or luncheon, or party, or vow renewal) with these ladies?  I can’t recall one.   Oh and let’s not forget Brandi wanting to take her weave off at the dinner table and Yolanda reaching over to help her. Klassy.

I cannot believe I’m saying this but, in this episode, Kyle, Kim and Joyce showed class, manners and more restraint that I ever could have.  Carlton was pretty much on the sidelines cheering for team Brandi.   Yolanda and Lisa were rude and catty.  Sorry, Lisa doesn’t get the usual “that’s just her British humor” pass from me tonight.  There are no words for Brandi.

Did Brandi go too Far? by NMD

Brandi offended me with her behavior last night.  I found her choice of bikini offensive, as well as her comment about black people not being able to swim and not wanted to get their weave wet.  Religion and racism are hot buttons.  They are much hotter buttons than mean girl behavior, and I think Brandi has lost viewers/fans irrevocably.

Real Housewife of Aiken’s blog is so well written and to the point, please take the time to read it and tell her how you feel.

http://realhousewifeofaiken.com/2013/12/09/the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-palm-spring-breakers/

Here is her summary on how she felt about that bikini:

Yes, Brandi,  that was the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe, to be more specific.  The image you had on your bikini top is an image of a miracle.  We who were raised Catholic aren’t in the habit of mocking religious symbols.  We don’t wear them on items of clothing to show off our girly pieces, and we don’t make fun of them or find such things funny.   We would no sooner insult the Blessed Mother than we would take to wearing a Star of David on our asses as a fashion statement.  The fact that you find it hilarious speaks to how truly foolish and disrespectful you are.   You do us and yourself a disservice by making a mockery of what so many of us hold so very dear.   Now, wipe that stupid smirk off your face, Google the miracle of Guadalupe, and apologize – and mean it.”

brandi and yolandathe-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-4-episode-406-12As for the comment about black people not being able to swim, I’d like Brandi to think for a moment about how she made Joyce feel at that moment.  Joyce is a visible minority – a mix of African, Spanish, and Indian.  She is new to this group of women, and already feeling vulnerable by their lack of a warm welcome.  There are many reasons she may not have wanted to get into the pool.  She may have been afraid of water because she’s not a good swimmer, she may not have wanted to get her swimsuit or hair wet, or ruin her makeup, or she may not have wanted to go near the pool and risk begin groped by Brandi.

Brandi’s comment pointing out Joyce’s ethnicity as a difference between Joyce and the other women was hurtful.  Any time you judge a person on the color of their skin, you are acting in a racist manner. That is the definition.

People can defend Brandi and say she was just ignorant but didn’t mean any harm – but she did mean to harm Joyce.  She was attacking Joyce the entire time during the trip. With that particular comment she told viewers that Joyce was unable to do something that all of the other women could do, because of the color of Joyce’s skin.

In her talking head interview -filmed later and after she had a chance to reflect on her comment – she brushed it off as a joke.   But then she made it worse by even more inappropriate comments about black people not wanting to get their weaves wet.  Brandi made it clear that if Joyce it was her problem – that any real friend of Brandi’s would understand it was a joke.   I don’t know if I believe that.  No one likes to be told they are unable to do something because of the color of their skin.

Brandi has said she didn’t mean to offend anyone and we just don’t get her.  Her apology was one of those ones where she didn’t admit to doing anything wrong, but for those of us that were sensitive and offended, she apologizes that we took her words that way.  I’d rather see her understand that her words were offensive and apologize for saying them.

Brandi Glanville ‏@BrandiGlanville10h

Im sorry for whomever I offended with my insensitive joke, I’m not racist Im just inappropriate 90 percent of the time!”

After Brandi called in to WWHL to make her half apology, Kyle Richards defended her and said that she didn’t think Brandi was racist.  That was nice of Kyle.

Some of the ladies have published their blogs.  They are letting us know that Brandi shared an awful lot during that trip, and that Brandi is damaged.  I think they are giving Brandi a life boat to explain why her behavior has been so self-destructive.  My guess is that if this does not make the air, Brandi will share with us on twitter.  Perhaps it is in the book.

  1. TexasTart says:

    Thank you, NMD and BB. In the first paragraph of BB’s words and safe to say – it is ALL OF THE ABOVE! 😕

    • LaineyLainey says:

      G’morning, Tex. I still like the show. I like it a lot.

    • TexasTart says:

      Completely agree, could say the same myself in BB’s last paragraph.

      The irony of of complaint of ironed sheets (as Yolanda explained in her blog) is that as a child she had to iron sheets. So that is just something normal to her. Yolanda regrets her behavior and basically it seems she has a loyalty to Brandi as she claims Brandi was the only one supporting her (from RHOBH) during her illness. She also does intimate how Brandi has demons and needs healing. It was a worthy read, for me at least.

      • missusmc says:

        I actually admire Yolanda’s loyalty, because she isn’t justifying Brandi’s actions. She said her racist comment was wrong. She said Brandi needs to tone it down. I know some people last night viewed Yolanda’s blog as making excuses for Brandi, but I saw it as her explaining why Brandi was acting the way she was, rather than excusing the behavior. It’s not the same thing. I’m not a brandi fan anymore, and I am not be a Yolanda fan in the future, but I do admire their loyalty to each other and that friendship they have cultivated. It seems real.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Loyalty is good, I hear ya, Missusmc…it’s not something one sees to often especially on these reality shows. It’s real until it aint.

        • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

          Agree Yolo’s blog has a very powerful message.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I am sorry but I was completely disgusted by Yolanda’s blog.

          I don’t define loyalty in my friendships as defending or rationalizing awful behavior . Yolanda (and Lisa) completely enabled and actively participated in Brandi’s drunken belligerence, If I acted 1/10 of the ass that was Brandi, I would fully expect my friends to tell me to wise up and send me to bed before I said anything else stupid. A real friend doesn’t try to explain away your bad behavior,a real friend help to remind you that you are better than the way you are acting and encourages you to stop.

          The notion that she first defines Brandi as a poor single mother just trying to do her best and as a wounded dove and victim of a cheating husband and his aggravating mistress and that we should treat her with kid gloves infuriated me. Then she basically forbids the viewers from addressing Brandi on social media. …Really…we aren’t allowed to call out the author of ‘Drinking & Tweeting’ . the hashtag #STFU #HATERS extraordinaire.

          Then she accuses Joyce of being friendly to the only people that were friendly and embracing of her…as drinking their kool-aide…meanwhile not a word about her idiot friend drinking everything alcoholic in sight.

          Then her Mommy Dearest crap over bed sheets not being ironed.

          IMO, Yo can fack right off along with Brandi and Carlton.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I read it, too. She made a lot of excuses for Brandi, but I didn’t see an explanation as to why she was shushing the hostess during dinner, maybe that’s an old dutch tradition, too? hmmmmm lots of excuses. I found her to be condescending and dismissive toward Joyce. I wonder why she’s like that toward her?

        • TexasTart says:

          No, there was not an explanation for her behavior, I took that she regretted it by tweets she replied to. But I don’t recall her making any excuses for Brandi. (?)

          • LaineyLainey says:

            “Brandi’s heart is broken” “Brandi is a single mother.” etc…she gave what she calls “reasons”, but to me it’s all semantics. It’s an excuse for inexcusable behavior. I read her blog and she spent a lot of it saying she didn’t agree with Brandi, but she gave reasons for Brandi’s behavior. Which I call excuses. If it smells like a duck and tastes like a duck…. no, that’s not right.

            • missusmc says:

              I think, though, that sometimes it’s important to understand who someone is as a person. She’s saying that Brandi’s actions are inexcusable, but are probably the result of her issues, and not the result of who she is as a person. And I think it’s an important distinction to make if you are her friend. She is supporting brandi the person, not Brandi’s actions. She’s recognizing that brandi may not be acting this way during a good time in her life, and she’s recognizing that she herself had gone through rough times, and had she been in different circumstances, she may not have acted in an appropriate way, either. She’s recognizing the brokenness of a friend, while still chastising the actions and words that are hurtful. She’s extending grace to a friend. And I’m still anti-Brandi, but I also love hat she has someone in her corner, who can see the good in her. Everyone needs that.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Ok, that’s way cool, missusmc…but she wasn’t quite as forgiving to Joyce who simply didn’t want to go into the pool. I guess only certain people are worthy of her grace. She lectured her on being a good hostess…etc. Sorry, I should just leave it at…that’s way cool. Cause it is. You’re seeing the good and I’m not ready to because I feel that Yo was so rude to Joyce…I can’t figure out why she would treat her that way. Was Joyce drunk and insulting her guests? No. On the contrary. But I digress,…I’m going into negaive land again.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  negative

                • missusmc says:

                  I don’t like Brandi. I don’t like Yolanda. I do, however, like that they support each other, even though they’re wrong. And I do like that this cast, for now, isn’t all ganging up against one person. Because even though in many ways, Brandi deserves it, I hate to watch it. So I’m glad that everyone seems to have at least one person who “has their back.”

            • TexasTart says:

              Thanks Lainey, I can’t disagree with that, I just took it differently after I read it.

            • Amber...Real Wife says:

              No silly Lainey YoMoFo’s line is ..if there’s smoke there is a beautiful roaring fire with strains of lemon and hibiscus started with the rag magazines printed with VileKyle’s marriage woes and HoAnaKrupa’s fetish past. And remember while MoFoYo (change-up 😉 ) can judge everyone and everything, we the viewers better show poor ole wittle Brandi w/ the trashy, degenerate, racist, truck driver mouth a little compassion because she’s been cheated on but likes to kiss married ladies? Uggghhh… The HUMANITY!

              She’s a Yonundrum that MoFoYo. Do as she says not as she does for she’s the formerly hardest working poor 5yr old who skeeves out at the mere thought of slightly wrinkled sheets at a desert villa.

            • I completely agree. I have many friends who are single mothers, friends who were cheated on, etc. They do not behave like Brandi. They do not make excuses for any inappropriate behavior. Having a hard life does not give you the excuse to act a fool, treat other people with condescension, put others down & all of the things that Brandi has done.

        • “an old Dutch tradition” ROTFL!!!!!

      • BB says:

        Since I do the recaps without benefit of reading these ladies’ blogs, I only have what goes on in the episode (i.e., the ironed sheets comment). But I’m still not giving Yolanda a pass for her rude behavior towards Joyce or even towards Kyle, no matter how “loyal” she wanted to be to Brandi. Did Yolanda really say in her blog she regrets how she acted on the trip? I know Lisa did in her blog.

        • TexasTart says:

          I’m aware this is just a recap of the show. I just read her blog and thought it was ironic, is all. I will say that I gathered Yo regretted her behavior based on her blog and tweets from last night. I guess I have go go and find if it’s real or imagined. She doesn’t get a pass from me, but I appreciate that she addressed it.

  2. Shiny says:

    Captured my reaction exactly: I no longer feel any anticipation that I might enjoy that hour of TV, definitely not like the first season of rich, pretty people enjoying their lives and friends.

  3. jezzibel says:

    I think the ladies(I use that term in the loosest possible way) are not doing Brandy any favors by excusing her behavior, giving her a lifeboat, or doing the “but what you don’t see is how she is suffering” routine. Brandy has had multiple opportunities to say she is sorry for(insert grievance here), but she has either half-@$$ed it or turned it into a joke, which tells me she’s not sorry, and saying sorry is something she just says to get people off her back about stuff. As a non-practicing Lutheran with a Catholic education, I was incredibly offended by her choice in bikini(that extends to the manufacturer, the store that sold it, and the persons tacky enough to buy it and wear it).

    • Powell says:

      Yeah. We all understand Brandi’s suffering. And last season she did regrettable things. So after seeing herself why isn’t she saying “Damn. I was totally out of line and can’t take my pain out on other people. I have to make changes to live the best possible life I can.” If she had we would respect her this season. Yo is saying she’s broken, needs help. Well when is she going to take those steps to get there? Clearly she’s not cuz she’s telling people that tweet her to STFU or she’s blocking them.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I don’t care how bad Brandi is hurting it’s no excuse for bad behavior on her part, she is 40 years old not a teenager, she knows better and if she doesn’t at this age then she will never learn. A lot of us have gone through cheating spouses and had our hearts broken because of them (myself included) and have not, did not and do not act this way. Bottom line is Brandi needs to grow up, period! Brandi likes the attention she is getting and will continue to do it as long as she gets it.

  4. missusmc says:

    Yes! Yes! Yes to NMD! One thing I cannot handle is when people issue non apologies that just further insult the person the apology is for. “Sorry you don’t understand me and are offended by my racist comment” is not an apology. It’s just another way of knocking someone down. Words hurt. They have meaning. It’s time Brandi realizes this and is more careful about the words she chooses. And I also agree with BB that Lisa’s behavior was poor in this episode, although her acknowledgement of wrongdoing in her blog does redeem her somewhat in my eyes (have we ever had a housewife admit when she’s wrong, ever?) She’s still my favorite, but episodes like last night remind me that all these women kind of horrible.

    • Powell says:

      IDK. It’s like when they go on trips it’s their license to act a fool. If they didn’t act that way there would be no need for apologies.

  5. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    I think it was clear from the car ride that Brandi and Yolanda had an agenda for the weekend. Brandi’s plan was to make Joyce look stupid-this I hate this in any person-going out of your way to make someone look stupid is mean and disgusting. (If it happens to me-I will seriously cut that person out of my life and never speak to the again )(my sister who is really and truly my BFF has a husband who loves to do this to people-he knows better than to try it with me as I will go off on that fool) anyway Brandi wanted to make Joyce look stupid and Yolanda “Miss fly above the drama girls girl” had no problem joining in the reindeer games. Seriously the whole GET IN THE POOL™ thing was beyond redic and so unnecessary. Calling Joyce out as a hostess is rude. Yolanda is very rude and she thinks everyone will just agree with her so she says whatever she wants-get over yourself Yolanda-you ain’t all that Girl!! Go pick lemons and iron your sheets and admire your perfect fridge and your perfect husband. I’m over her-like really over her!! Brandi and her stupidity is just never ending and so immature and ignorant. For once this dimwit needs to be SORRY not #sorrynotsorry. Has she ever been accountable for one thing she has said or done? She’s a hot mess with a suitcase full of excuses and they all suck. Getting cheated on is no excuse for her antics-if there are other reasons she behaves this way I’m sure she is saving them for her book-as anyone would do right? Oh whatever Brandi-grow the Eff up and take your own advice and STFU!! The bikini was typical Brandi -go for the shock and keep talking about it-she is getting so predictable . I really don’t get Carlton -AT ALL. She got one of her witchy balls up her butt and it’s causing her to come off as a bitter mean judgmental ass.
    Joyce handled the mess very nicely-a lot better than I would have. I would have had these bit*hes packing their tired ass weaves and hitting the bricks!!!

    • TexasTart says:

      Good summary, Jill. The Dick Sisters appreciate not being mentioned in your summary, lol. 😉

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

        They didn’t really add much this week did they? I feel like they acted the way you are supposed to act when you get invited somewhere. I also didn’t mention Lisa-I think Lisa has a lot of regrets about her time with Brandi-but I can’t help thinking that if Brandi didn’t turn on Lisa in the press would Lisa still be calling Brandi out for her behavior or would she be defending her like she did all of last season? Tricky question!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          The Dicks’ did good this week. Good work, Dicks sisters!

        • TexasTart says:

          Oh yeah, Lisa. Now Lisa has publicly stated that she regrets her time with Brandi. And as sure I hit post someone is going to want me to back that up with a damn quote. That’s the problem I have with how this goes when people are too passionate about the show…LIKE NJ. ….so just consider it my opinion…about Lisa. And this is a general comment it just spun off Jill. Is not meant for her. End rant.

          • BB says:

            If that was directed at me, I haven’t asked for any direct quotes. All I asked was if Yo’s blog said she regretted how she acted on the trip. I didn’t mean to question your interpretation of her blog and if you took it that way, I sincerely apologize.

        • BB says:

          I think Lisa would have gotten tired of Brandi’s shocking behavior eventually and distanced herself from it. And as much as Yolanda makes excuses for Brandi and still counts her as a friend, I’m sense a weariness from her about Brandi when reading between the lines. I thought the most telling thing in Yolanda’s blog was what she said about Kyle.

          • missusmc says:

            I think Lisa was more willing to excuse Brandi’s behavior when she was fighting Lisa’s fight. Lisa doesn’t have a reason to support Brandi anymore.

            • BB says:

              That’s pretty much true of 90% of all of the housewives. There are a few true friendships, but most are friendships of convenience or strategy.

              • Powell says:

                BB did you see my list I made up yesterday? I said 90% are TV friends. 🙂 I said that in response to Kim being on Bs show saying Lisa only calls her on camera. Well duh K Kim. 🙂

                • BB says:

                  I didn’t get a chance to read the whole blog yesterday, Powell, but I agree about the TV friends part. If they weren’t on a tv show together, most of them would never see or talk to each other.

                  • TexasTart says:

                    Including Kyle & Kim!!!!

                  • mrs peabody says:

                    kind of like work friends, you work with people for years in an office and are friends and get along but how many of them are also friends in your home life? They are work friends but not home friends. I’m not saying you don’t like them outside of work but they are just not involved in that part of your life. I have a lot of friends like that. Not everyone makes it to each part of your life but it doesn’t mean you don’t like them still.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              ^This…
              If Brandi hadn’t spilled the beans that it was Lisa who got her to bring the magazines about Kyle and Mauricio marriage. she would still be making excuses for her.

              • Cartwheels says:

                absolutely. Lisa found a way to excuse Brandi revealing of the surrogacy and then the fake lawsuit and even chimed in to make believable by overinflating the lawyer fees.
                If Brandi was still on her team, Lisa most definitely would be making all kind of excuses for her behavior and her tune would be different.

        • Powell says:

          Lisa did call Brandi out last season. She would say, “Brandi stop it; Brandi you can’t do that; etc” at times. Last season & this season Yo keeps saying, “Brandi’s a fun girl leave her alone; Your not her mom leave Brandi alone – she said that to Lisa.”

          • VV™ says:

            She called her out many times on the show and countless of times on Twitter.

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

            But nothing like she is calling her out in her blogs this season-there was none of that last year by Lisa. She defended and protected Brandi all last season.

            • VV™ says:

              Yes, Lisa did. She called Brandi out many times when she “misbehaved” on last year’s blogs as well.

              NOTE: I think the calling out on bad behavior by Lisa started to wear on Brandi and contributed to the demise of their friendship.

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

                Last season Lisa didn’t write her blogs like she is this season-she is saying how awful Brandi is and not making any excuses for her. It’s a total change from last season. But what came first?

                • VV™ says:

                  There are countless of instances that will require research. Brandi dropping F bomb to Adriene at dinner table when talking to Kim. It was Lisa that talked B into apologizing to A for using F word.

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

                    No research required VV-I’m just saying the vibe from Lisa -especially in her blogs-is much different than last season. Things she was amused with are no longer amusing to her. It’s not a big deal-it’s just my opinion.

                    • VV™ says:

                      Brandi has attacked Lisa on Twitter, interviews and on blogs nonstop since the beginning of June. I’m glad Lisa is letting us know her perspective.

                      JNNTJ I think it’s no longer amusing to Lisa just like it isn’t to us. Lisa as we see is tired of Brandi behaving in this manner as her way of holding her own.

                  • kit9 says:

                    Lisa only begrudgingly said Brandi shouldn’t have said Stfu to Adrienne after Kyle twisted her arm. And, then, Lisa did her best to downplay it. And, Lisa’s reasoning when talking to Brandi in the bathroom wasn’t that she’d done something actually wrong, it was that she was giving the other women fuel against her. Her comments to Brandi were fully strategic. I can’t think of any time Lisa has seriously called out Brandi all last season. I don’t count her eye rolling, “oh, Brandi”s as real criticism. Has Lisa yet said a word of criticism about Brandi’s season long lawsuit lie?

        • kit9 says:

          Cartwheels made this point perfectly yesterday. Only reason Lisa is taking her to task now is because they had a falling out. Lisa was the closest bestest friends with Brandi thru all her lies last season. Has Lisa yet to condemn Brandi’s blatant lawsuit lies? And, Lisa was the first to jump to Brandi’s defense and start scolding Joyce about her use of the word bully and was totally egging on Brandi’s worst behavior last night.

          • VV™ says:

            I think there is a gag order after Bravo and Adrienne settled because NOBODY has talked about it since. Adrienne could easily make another statement but she hasn’t. This has been my position since it all ended.
            Surprise that Kim and Kyle defend Brandi at every chance they get.

            Las night we saw Bravo edited version as always. I take it with a grain of salt. Again, Joyce is not calling out Lisa for anything.

          • Cartwheels says:

            Yeap, that was very evident last episode. Lisa is not dumb, she is smart, there is no way that she didn’t understand the point Joyce was trying to make, there is no way that she got confused, from Kim I could believe but not from Lisa. Lisa knew that Joyce was not calling Brandi a bully.
            Lisa latched onto this to try to put Joyce against the wall for Yolanda and Brandi to finish her off, those were the times when they were together as a happy family.
            Lisa and her backpeddling of today mean nothing to me. Lisa’s behavior of last episode is most definitely more telling to me than her beautiful written blog.
            Actions speaks louder than words.

          • mm in oc says:

            Yes, Lisa had her back like she’s had all her friends’ back. Once they cease being friends, she’s at liberty to be more honest about her opinions. But I still don’t see her revealing private information and breaking trust that was confided to her.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        cute, Tex

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Wow, great comment. Rude the way yo was telling Joyce how to be a good hostess. Condescending much? smdh

      Reminded me of when she scolded the grown man in her house for not speaking English.

      She thinks it’s ok to rob people (some people) of their dignity. I have always liked her so much save for the whole “learn english!” moment, but now…I’m very disappointed. How could her husband be ok with this? I like the way she brings up lyme in her blog a lot this week, when it really wasn’t part of the show’s topic.

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

        I’m tired of her bossing everyone around! She knows EVERYTHING!! She is rude and loves to act like she is the voice of reason but she really isn’t. She just some rich lady with awful extensions and Brandi for a friend-that’s more telling to me than anything.
        Her blog is on my last nerve too-she’s bossing us-the viewers-on how to behave to Brandi. There is something that Brandi is going through that we don’t know about? Like what? Brandi is so up front and honest and opened and a truth canon that she is hiding something from us? Please Yolanda-I can say what I want on social media thank you very much!! Brandi just says whatever pops in her empty head and now Yolanda is trying to protect her by alluding to this mystery “something”…is it so mysterious it wont end up in Brandi’s book? Like her redone vagina and her STD!!!

    • Powell says:

      Brandi has that “I’ll get them before the get me” attitude. It’s not pretty.

    • mrs peabody says:

      You know Yolanda was getting on Joyce about not being a good hostess for getting in the pool but I think Yolanda was wrong in getting into the pool when clearly the hostess wanted to lay by the pool and sunbath. Yolanda should have followed her hostess’s lead and stayed out of the water. As far as them harassing her about not getting in the pool I hate it when people do that to me and there is no way I ever give into them if they keep at me. I can’t swim (and I’m white), I don’t like getting my face wet (ruins my makeup and hair and since I’m not a natural beauty it takes to long to redo everything, once a day is enough for getting my face and hair on) and I don’t go to the pool to swim, I go to lay out and there is nothing wrong with that and there was nothing wrong with Joyce wanting to do that too. Another thing I don’t get this Brandi has such a great body thing, I don’t think she does, she has a poochie stomach and I don’t like skin and bones in either men or women, I think they look unhealthly. Is Colton cheating on her husband when she is making out with Brandi? Wonder how he feels about that.

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

        It was so strange the whole pool thing-it was like Yolanda and Brandi wanted Joyce to say “I don’t want to ruin my make-up and hair because we are filming a TV you bloody morons”!!!

      • djprincessc says:

        100+ Mrs Peabody!! I don’t think Brandi has an amazing body either!!! And Carlton OMG those boobs on that leathery skin. YUCK! Just like super big ppl in a bathing suit don’t look good, the same with super skinny people not looking good either. It works both ways.

    Thank you NMD for being sensitive enough and understand that the Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a Miracle and we are millions who believe in that Miracle.

    If there are irreverent people designing clothes with Our Lady Image, they should be people with brains to not buy it or wear it… yet even more for a program watched in National TV and Internationally as well.

    Race and Religion should be out of limits… For Brandi not even her kids matter. I am officially out of RHPBH. Not Atlanta and NOT certainly this Blog and all of you who work hard to keep it alive… None of those BH women have any appealing to me anymore.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Cusi there are tons of clothing lines out there for evangelicals and fundamentalists mostly — I see it’s a thriving business growing every day, with outfits for teenagers and children. And NOT modest.

      Remember the black witch / gollum has disgusting words scribbled on a cross on her tattoo and she wears rosary beads for fashion – that’s offensive I would think to Christians I would think. And not just Catholics !
      Catholics revere the Virgin but so do we Orthodox. (I was raised both)

      I don’t take that much offense to it. Because I see what’s out there and it’s LOCO compared to that bikini too. Jmho

      • cusi77 says:

        I attend Greek Orthodox Church since I came to live to The USA ten years ago. So, I consider myself both, Catholic and Orthodox.

        The fact that they are selling clothes with Our Lady of Guadalupe image DOES not make it right to wear them! It is a matter of respect for all Religions and Common sense.

        Carlton was offended by Kyle for asking her if she was Catholic, but very amused by Brandi wearing The Virgin mother of Jesus. These women are trash! No sense of values!

        The problem is not theirs, is mine for watching them! I’m done!

        • chismosa™ says:

          I hear you Cusi, I do. Products aren’t made though without people (shockingly at times) asking for and buying them !?! Crazzzzzy world.

          Can I ask you why you attend Greek Orthodox Church too? How do I not know this? That’s amazing… My mother – Latin American and catholic – adores the greek mass.
          Are you Catholic orthodox? I have a polish/ Ukrainian “aunt” from Pennsylvania and they are catholic orthodox. Not Roman Catholic. Is your husband greek?

          • justanothermary says:

            I went to 12 years of Catholic schools. The education I received was amazing and the respect I was taught has been a constant and faithful companion through life. I may take it too personally, but I am very offended by revealing clothing depicting religious icons of any faith and am offended by people claiming to be Catholic wearing rosaries as necklaces and hanging them from their rear-view mirrors (cough – Tre – cough). If Brandi is trying to see how many people she can offend in a single episode she is more than welcome to add my Roman Catholic self to the list.

            • chismosa™ says:

              That’s why I pointed out the rosaries as well. I hear you loud and clear. 12 years myself. ….
              I’m glad I haven’t seem the episode inside Gollum’s gothic house. Confessionals and all. 😦
              —-
              Since when did rosaries become acceptable jewelry ?? Sidenote. – just shocking.

  7. Cityside says:

    No excuses.
    Brandi is a trainwreck.
    Who would put up with somebody calling them the wrong name no less than 10 times – that we saw! Honest mistake? Grow up. If I was Joyce I would have asked her to leave, if not at the pool, def at the dinner table. I would have called Bravo for a car and had someone pack her shiit and she would have been out of there.

    I still think Kyle is a b. She cannot let anyone finish a sentence and she does not even realize it.
    Instead of just taking this and having some insight (which she defi does not have) she has an excuse for her rude behavior–and again at the dinner table.

    Lisa got it wrong about what Joyce was trying to say about being bullied in HS. Note to Lisa, she was telling a story about an experience she HAD she can use the bully word for her story. Pay attention PLEASE!

    I am going to give Kyle credit for continuing the conversation with Joyce about her show. Too bad the rest of them did not just ignore Brandi and Yolanda.

    Note to Kyle: Having a conversation with someone includes you letting them finish their thought before you jump right in……….

    • missusmc says:

      I think Brandi is the worst. Really. I think she has really effed up this franchise, and it’s annoying, because it used to be my favorite. I’m 100% on board with Brandi’s behavior being inexcusable. I just like that she has a friend on this show who can see past the behavior and see who she really is and will defend her. Everyone needs an ally on these shows, even if they’re awful.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I don’t think Lisa got it wrong about what Joyce was trying to say. I think Lisa was ‘looking for tits on an ant’.

      The conversation that Kim had with Lisa about it had me cracking up.

      • Cityside says:

        I thought Lisa was saying that Joyce was calling Brandi a bully…or that you cannot use the word bully around these gals. Either way Joyce was just telling a story about HS.

        City

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I agree with you. Lisa was trying to suggest that Joyce called Brandi a bully when it was clear Joyce was talking about something that happened in high school But I think Lisa’s offense was bullshit, just like how Carlton got indignant over Kyle’s nipple comment.

  8. auroracooper says:

    As usual BB and NMD excellent jobs. I thought some of you might like to see what a beautiful place the “ladies” stayed while my neck of the woods. http://www.colony29palmsprings.com/ Of course during the summer months it’s blazing here but you can’t beat our Winter, Spring and part of the Fall here.

    • BB says:

      It looks like a beautiful place. I guess Joyce couldn’t help that Bravo was filming during the summer months. lol!

  9. Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

    That Brandi is an STD, Druggy, Drunky, Sexaholic, Racist, Blasphemous, Lesbian /Whore pig who makes fun of blind people. But by golly I like her!

  10. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. In the DMV schools are closed, government offices are closed. I’m WAH. Yippie!!! No snow driving today. 🙂 I was watching Kelly & Michael & Kelly said her 2 oldest kids rolled over & said “Thank you Jesus”. Her youngest had school & said it wasn’t fair & his school was setting a precedent. LOL. I hope everyone is ok w/this weather.
    Now why did my local FOX news stay on to show snow preempting Wendy but now they put on Bethenny. I like B but prefer seeing Friday’s epis of Wendy. B has Dina Eastwood on talking about her divorce saying Dina’ s divorce was unexpected like hers was. Hmmmm.

      😠😠😠

      I don’t get it.

  12. BB – “it reminds me of the times when I’ve seen great previews about a soon-to-be released theatrical movie, only to pay good money at the movie theater and feeling cheated because all the good scenes were shown in the previews and the rest of the movie pretty much sucked.” I could not agree more!!! I feel like I already know how the whole season plays out, even though we’re only on episode 6! Bravo needs to do a better job of keeping some things under wraps.

    I think Brandi is ridiculously inappropriate. I used to enjoy Brandi’s honesty & found it refreshing. However, she has taken it too far now. I feel sorry that her kids will have to listen to their mother’s sexual exploits in the future. Her comments last night were completely inappropriate & offensive. At some point, as an adult, you have to realize that you can’t say every little thing that runs through your head – you have to become aware that your words have the power to hurt others. I don’t understand how she thinks it’s ok to talk about Joyce’s heritage, but gives Carlton a pass on religion & the fact that she looks at though she’s spent one too many days in a tanning bed. You can’t get away with offending people by saying that you’re a loose cannon or claiming its a joke. Her comments were tasteless & hurtful, & she refuses to apologize for them which makes it even worse to me.

    Joyce may be too nice & genuine for this show. The whole hair-flip argument with Lisa seemed to be her attempt to get attention & a storyline. She seems out of her league with this group of manipulators & back-stabbers.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      great comment. Great second paragraph; I teach pre-school which is the normal time to teach the little humans about having a “thought life”…i.e. “you don’t have to say everything that pops into your head. It’s really ok,…and sometimes it’s better because it cuts down on “interrupting” or possibly hurting someone’s feelings,…plus it gives you time to process what is going on around you so that when you do speak, it makes sense and it’s helpful to you or others, etc. Ok, pre-school teacher off switch.

      Joyce went about it all wrong, but she was trying to warn Lisa that Brandi is not her trusted friend. She was trying to make her open her eyes to the truth of Brandi. “Lisa, you in trouble, girl.” That’s what she should have said, instead of the hair flipping stuff.

      • Shiny says:

        Now we know why the housewives are badly behaved…they never went to pre-school! Lainey, that’s the best explanation of why to think before speaking I’ve ever read: thought life. What a fabulous pre-school teacher you are. (And you could teach most adults a thing or two, too.)

        • LaineyLainey says:

          thank you, shiny!! I love a parade!!!! and a compliment. 🙂

    omg you guys!! I stayed up reading the chat from last night…you guys are so much more entertaining! 😛 I saw BH 1/2 sleep 1/2 reading the chatting….I pay more attention to the blog than the show 😛 So many comments….imagine if were were in Bravo blog instead of our own, oh well they lose.

    Cusi— I wished I had been there last night to join you in regards to the bikini, wth? I know what it is….she just keeps trying to shock people, she keeps trying to teas people, and so everything she does is on purpose. She loves the reactions…then regrets it if in stead of getting rewarded she gets bashing.

    I will commet more later, I have not read today’s blog.

    • Powell says:

      I’ll watch this weekend I’m sure but when Brandi and Lisa were bikini shopping Brandi tried on bikinis that were too small and Lisa told her one was too small. Yes she does it for shock value. They need to stop commenting about her teeny bikinis and maybe she’ll get that no one really cares.

      • California35 says:

        ugh! right? by the way on the bodies…she is skinny and may work out and looks slim and bla bla bla, but Im sorry, her body doesn’t seem in shape to me or her skin doesn’t look that great! I may have extra meat on my but my skin is much better than hers…..she needs to eat and drink healthier. Also Carlton, her body is more in shape than Brandi’s, it is tight an all..but again…I don’t know if her case is because of too much sun. when brandi may need more sun? Sorry I feel bad about commenting on their bodies…I am no one to talk since I wouldn’t wear a bikini at all, I would be more like the other girls, I would wear a one piece and still wear shorts or a coverup.

  15. Well, here is my take… Ready for it? This show sucks. Just like all the rest of them.

    Brandi- Once funny to watch has become the staggering drunk in the ally that pisses himself. Now it’s just sad. I don’t think I have ever seen her do anything on this show that did not involve booze. It is her excuse for everything and it’s a tired one. Her ‘apology video’ was oddly posted, the same day as her book was released for pre-order.. BTW Brandi, you don’t get to bitch about ‘being bullied in front of your kids by the paparazzi’ out of one side of your drunken mouth, and shush the hostess because she dared use the word, relating a story from her HS years regarding her name, out of the other side.

    Joyce- I think her intentions were good but if she honestly thought putting these heifers together on a getaway was a good idea, then she hasn’t seen this show or any other Bravo HoWives show. To me, her biggest offense, if you will, is the constant hair flipping and twirling. I will say that if the woman did not want to get in the pool, let her lay there and bake. We didn’t need a reason why she doesn’t want to get wet, that was the most ridiculous debate I’ve seen on these shows.

    Speaking of the pool, I am sick to death of the lipstick lesbian bullshit on this show. Honestly if I want to watch that, there are plenty of websites that will satisfy that desire. In part, I blame Mandy for this type of storyline.

    Yolanda- Bitch please. Go suck on your lemons. To tell the hostess to stay out of a discussion that she wasn’t a part of while defending the drunken lush on her right, who also wasn’t part of it… Please. I have never liked this woman. What is her claim to fame again? Oh yes, she was a model, who phucked an uber rich guy, and now phucks another one.

    LisaV- the queen… With her British dry wit. Groan… If she didn’t have product to push, I doubt she would even be on this show. For her, it’s a paid infomercial with some other stuff sprinkled in. She and her pal, Yolanda bitching about the accommodations, being hot in of all places, the desert 😯 . These are two ritzy titzy bitches, let them hire someone to iron the damn sheets, and work the big palm leaf to fan them off while they lounge if that is really what they want. #freegiggy

    Carlton- She’s just strange..

    Kyle- First of all, if the rumors are false, then STFU about them. If you aren’t acknowledging them, even the comments about them, then no one else will either. Second, if this convo was between you, the lemondrop, Kim, and God, then that is where it should have stayed. It isn’t dinner conversation at a party you were invited to. It was disrespectful for you and the lemondrop to even bring that up, unfinished business… Bullshit.

    Kim- I am sad to say that she is the only one who made any sense at that table.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Haha! Great comment, MTH. The LisaV and Yo…could have brought their own staff and had their grapes peeled, too….since the accommodations were lacking in their opinion.

    • California35 says:

      Good on all the points 😛

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Great take on it!
      I gave them a pass for the luggage complaining last night. I mean if the Ny housewives get staff at their Moraccan trip, I’m sure Bravo could have made sure their was staff to carry up luggage. It seems trivial, but if the lil 1.5-2.5 hotels I stay in can have a luggage guy why not a resort? These ladies prolly haven’t stayed at the Comfort Suites lately so they expect more. If it was one or two jokes about it, I can look past it-but any more or a comment to the hostess would put it over the line for me. As for the sheets-they should be glad they are clean. Lol does Yo iron her sheets daily? This whole thing was a crapfest to watch. I’m glad Giggy stayed home and Lisa told Kim it was too hot for him.

    • BB says:

      I just read it. Wow. She.Just.Does.Not.Get.It. That’s about the worst excuse-laden non-apology I’ve ever read.

      • TexasTart says:

        No she doesn’t. She has no respect for Joyce and dislikes her a great deal as evident she is still attacking her in this very blog! Here are the the most damning comments ITTHO. (In Texas Tart’s Humble Opinion…nods to PrincessPindy…)

        BRANDI: “The moment those words came out of my mouth I regretted them and felt like I just handed Joyce/Jacqueline the gift that she had been waiting for to have another go at me and give herself the attention she clearly was craving.”

        “In the future, I will remember in to hold back with people who I now see are only looking to take me down so that they can have a something for themselves.”

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

          Does that mean us-the viewers-are looking to take her down? She’s not sorry she said the ignorant remark-she’s just sorry she said it in front of Joyce-she is a stupid woman. Just say sorry-don’t go on about your African American boyfriends-I’m not even half way through the blog and I already found something to bit*h about-this girl works my last good nerve!!!

        • “looking to take me down”

          THIS is THE biggest load of horseshit. I Seriously doubt, that Joyce had any such intention. For that to be true, Joyce would have to be jealous of Brandi somehow. I don’t see it..

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

            Me either-if anything Joyce has the life Brandi wishes for-not the other way around! Who in their right mind would want Brandi’s life? Cleaning up dog crap by day and getting trashed by night-no thanks! I got the trashed part out of my system years ago!!!

          • VV™ says:

            She needs to look no further than her mirror.

        • Powell says:

          Please. She couldn’t hold back if her hair was on fire. That’s why Yo said on the reunion that she held back on getting to know them because she didn’t want to invest in relationships and get her heart broken. I get that. That’s why some new ladies hold back. I know Joyce felt like she shouldn’t have put herself out there. But Bravo and those damn trips they have to plan . I like the good ole days when they actually did what they wanted to do.

  17. Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

    Sometimes those who are the most upset at Brandi’s behavior should actually be the most forgiving. Calling her a whore/ pig / STD ridden etc says a lot but not about Brandi. I don’t understand being upset at Brandi’s bikini because of the religious image but at the same time it’s ok under the same religion to call Brandi names? #baffled.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I have not been calling her names.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I’m not perturrred by her bikini. But I’m NEW to Brandi. Lol

        I am!

        • cusi77 says:

          What is the story of your name “Kelly-has-big-shoulders”… Brandi has admitted to have STD’S, no one here has names of description of anyone’s physical condition since it is not a choice but a defect they were born with. I find your choice of name depictive.

          Boston is Catholic and she tweeted what you said. Be direct and say it was Boston and Cusi and not “Sometimes” …”Someone”… You want to tell me something? Do it.

          What do you need to know? I will explain myself to best of my capacity. I have a name and I have values and opinion. We can debate, we can respectfully agree to disagree.

          • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

            I don’t have any particular story about my name that I wish to share. Just that Lynn got a chuckle out of it.
            Yes Brandi has admitted to having an STD – HPV actually which she got from her husband while married to him. So not sure how that makes her a whore or a bad person for having had this disease.
            Not sure what is so depictive of my made up blog name which everyone here has for the most part.
            I was stating my opinion as everyone else on here and don’t need to or wish to point anyone out or call anyone out.

                Excuse me LaineyLaney but Kelly-has-big-shoulders was not giving an opinion of Housewives but a critic of Religious people… Two: Boston and me.

                . She question MY religion and my integrity. Everyone has the right to have an opinion without attacking others. I am not going to allow anyone to question my integrity.

                • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                  Sorry if you feel I was attacking you I was not that was not my intention. It was mentioned on the blog up top about the bikini and I stated my opinion. Sorry it is different from yours.

                  • cusi77 says:

                    Now you are insulting my intelligence. Go To the last page “Let’s chat” and see what you wrote to Boston and me at the bottom of the sheet.

                    You came with this comment to criticize direct to OUR Religion and how we should be more forgiving. Not to give an opinion on the Housewives.

                • JustDee says:

                  I’m sorry Cusi, I didn’t see her attacking you?

                  I’m a woman of faith, too. But I didn’t feel personally attacked. I suppose that’s neither here nor there. But. I’m happy to say, It looks like to me that you are working it out amongst yourselves, so this is me bowing out.

                    You didn’t see it because the story starts on the last page where KHBS attacked Boston and me and she was not giving just an opinion… she came direct to attack Boston and Me.

                      Sorry I am not attacking you nor did I attack you. On the Let’s chat page I mentioned the type of STD that Brandi has. In regards to your comment about getting in the pool with her. In fact here is my comment. I don’t think I am attacking anyone. Just pointing out you can’t get and STD or HPV from being in the pool with Brandi. That is BS that I came to directly attack you or Boston and I take offense to that. I said If you felt the way that I am sorry but that was not my intention. Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                      The type of STD Brandi has or had HPV you do not get from being in the pool with her. It is sad people think this way. As I’m sure you have gotten in pools with people who you do not know what they have or don’t have. Brandi was open about what STD Eddie gave her not so it could be thrown at her in a very disparaging manner. She did not choose to get and STD her husband gave it to her because he was a cheating PIG not Brandi.

              I remember your name from ages ago !

              Hpv is shockingly very very common. Is this the only std brandy has? From what I’ve read something like 1 in 3 women have that. I’m surprised it’s not more crazy stds she’s gotten.
              Not to mention maybe hair loss or neck scars from choking. Yuck! 👹

              • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                I remember your name too chismosa. As far as I know she mentioned HPV in her book. One STD. I wouldn’t know if she has any other.

                • cusi77 says:

                  And I remember you as well KHBS. It was the time Lynn said to not have names who depict physiological parts of the Housewives.

                  • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                    Yeah sorry Cusi that I don’t remember Lynn saying about my name in fact she said my name made her chuckle.

            • Cartwheels says:

              Brandi said she got it from her husband but being how explicit she has been about her sexual choices I would venture to say that maybe it was the other way around.

            You reduced the list of people calling Brandi names, to those upset by Brandi’s Bikini with the Image of “La Emperatriz de la Americas” (You understand, right? You are Cuban).

            That narrowed list left Boston and Me in your baffled state…. Everyone here is calling Brandi names… but you directed your comment to us… why? You even said we should be more forgiving… When one comments here, we talk about HW not how the rest of the people should feel. I am on facebook and you can find me there if you want to give me advice how to feel and forgive.

    • Powell says:

      I’ve never called her those names. I’ve said she’s an idiot, disrespectful and should be ashamed of herself. I also said that her actions make me somewhat understand what Adrienne was saying & I’m mad at Brandi for making me understand what Adrienne was saying. I’ve also tweeted to Brandi just what I said. I understand she’s had it hard w/ what went down in her marriage. She was mad and had every right to be. She’s been in defense mode and I understand that too but w/her defending herself she’s done a lot of hurting people unnecessarily. What Adrienne and Paul hid seems like nothing to us but it wasn’t Brandi’s place to stick her nose in A & Ps family biz. She claims she dud it cuz they bullied her when she wouldn’t go along w/ teaming up to take down Lisa. So she tells A & Ps family biz? She claims she’ll cut anyone that tries to hurt her kids. Well that’s what A & P did. They may have gone about it wrong but they were protecting their kids. She starts a fight w/Kyle & Kim calling Kim a meth addict. How is that defending herself? Bringing up rumors that Mauricio is cheating? She’s been there and she does that to another woman. Yes she has the right to defend herself but not by cutting to the white meat as they say on Atl. Oh and I may have called her an asshole. And she needs to take her own advice and STFU sometimes.

    • Powell says:

      And the fishing line bikinis? I don’t care if she’s walking around naked. She’s got an agenda when she wears those bikinis. That’s all I’ve said about it. I say they should just ignore her. She’s only wearing them so that they say something. She’s pulling desperate moves. She said LeAnn had an agenda when she wore the same bikinis Brandi wore and so does Brandi for wearing them.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I bet you she wouldn’t dare to wear a bikini with the star of David because she know that Andy would never forgive her for that, yet it is okay to wear something that was an obvious dig to annoy Joyce.

        • iceNfire says:

          I should really stay out of this but…
          KKB herself said she looks like a football player in a strapless dress b/c she has big shoulders. Z came up with that name after KKB’s runway walk at Alex’s charity event where she wore a bright yellow strapless dress and we all agreed she looked like big bird.
          Joyce lost me when she said that Her God is more powerful than any Witch. The whole my God is better than yours is what starts wars.
          Going away now 🙂

          • LaineyLainey says:

            No ice, come back here. Wasn’t Carlton bragging about how strong witches are? when she was explaining her faith? Joyce mentioned the power of her God in her talking head not directly to Carlton in an argumentative way. She was expressing her feelings about her faith. Carlton did it/does it. Is it really so bad when Joyce does the same?

            • iceNfire says:

              Hi Lainey – I’m sorry I started in on this topic of who has the biggest. bestest, most powerful whatever.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Why are you sorry? I’m not sorry. Don’t be sorry. You did nothing wrong. Neither did Joyce. Neither did Carlton. They were expressing their beliefs/thoughts openly.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              In Joyce’s blog, she explained that that remark she made was to Kim because Kim said she was ‘afraid’ of witches. I think Kim probably thinks of ‘witches’ in the fair tale sense so Joyce’s remark was more like something you would say to a child who is a afraid of the boogyman and that daddy could beat up any monster.

              In any event., even in the Wicca religion people who proclaim to be a witch aren’t deities or a supreme being. Had Joyce said “The wind or the moon or the ocean is more powerful than any witch” Carlton would have readily agreed; but substitute an element of nature with God..and suddenly Carlton is offended. She can fack off.

              The same Carlton who bastardizes Catholic/Christian symbols or relics of the faith as ‘decor. The same bitch who uses a confessional as a shag shack, The same bitch who has FUK written in cross. The same bitch who laughed at Brandi’s bikini and made a sexual joke about the Virgin Mary.

              She is the epitome of one of those people who demand tolerance for their religion all the while where they actively insult and demean Christianity.

                Cusi, I saw Ren’s daughter a few days ago walking to school by herself. This time I was able to pull over and give her a ride. Her mom is back in the OC, so I am a little less worried than I was before.

                I just try to be thankful that the little girl is very, very smart and continue to pray that when she gets a bit older, she will go to college and make a nice life for herself.

    Good Morning Y’All,
    Drove to work before the snow started falling this am …Snow shoveling to commence again! Not looking forward to the drive home! Son has his last remaining final exam today and heads home for the winter break tomorrow, youngest has the day off from HS due to the inclement weather…on to the women of BH’s from last night;s show … BB and NMD, great re-cap …Brandi’s comments regarding the Blessed Mother are highly insensitive, especially with the upcoming celebration of Christ’s birthday … tsk, tsk, shame on you, girl!
    Have one word to describe how I felt after watching this episode – dissatisfied … what would be your one word?

  19. Pghemtchick says:

    Thanks for the great blogging and the perspective!
    A few of my thoughts:
    -I’m a big Lisa fan, but I am really disappointed in her in this episode. I appreciate her blog explaining her position and acceptance of her being wrong. Maybe it’s a little too late, but I believe she means it. Her and Joyce seem to have reconciled so no issues there.
    -I think Joyce has an amazing closet! That’s why I enjoyed BH. The clothes, the houses, the lifestyle. I’d take Taylips back even tho she’s a grifter over Brandi. Taylor at least fit into certain aspects of the Hollywood-esque lifestyle. How many truly fake it til they make it? (I’m smaking myself for missing Taylips).
    -If people feel social media is ruining their life-get off it.
    -I enjoyed Carlton at first, but the whole pretensious thing is wearing.
    -You go on a TV show, sign a contract knowing you can be edited, you alone have the control over what you say and do. No one MADE you take that drink-YOU chose to do it. Someone may annoy you via hair flipping, but you chose to take it to a new level. You thought spouting a racist stereotype was funny…it wasn’t. I don’t care how many multicultural friends you have, it’s not okay. (My thoughts on Lebrandi.)
    -I’m tired of hearing Brandi’s kids don’t know about her actions on TV. Guess what? Paps ask questions infront of them! Kudos to LeAnn for telling them to shut it infront of the kids.
    -I’m also tired of hearing Brandi’s kids won’t be picked on because they are so young. Gia made her poem a few seasons ago and was being picked on. She was 10-11 years old. Mason is 10 going on 11 according to Eddie’s wiki page. That’s 5-6th grade. I’m sure he’s hearing it. That makes me sad.

    • VV™ says:

      Brandi on her blog indicates Lisa stayed out of the table discussion. Joyce is not mad at Lisa and now Brandi confirms that she stayed out if it. Yes, we saw her crack up when Brandi slurred her words and called Joyce a name. I think if the scene played as it happened, Lisa was laughing at the drunk behavior not at Brandi’s joke. If the scene was heavily edited and something tells me it is, I have to watch scene closely to look for clues and see if things were played out of order or voiced over and created by Bravo. I will report.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        I believe you. I’ve learned over the years to only trust the actions of the person not the scene. Thinking more about it now, laughing might be Lisa’s stress reaction. She does it to the petty nonsense of the VR gang too.

    • Powell says:

      Pchick I asked about Taylor yesterday. LOL I kinda miss her too. 🙂 And you’re right. Taylor sort of fit into the lifestyle because she and Russell(RIP) had us believing that they had it like that.

    • Powell says:

      And yes Brandi must still be smoking weed if she believes her kids don’t her about her antics at school. They may not be allowed to watch it but they sure have classmates that do watch it along w/their parents. This is 2013 what’s wrong w/her? That’s like Dina Eastwood was on B today. I hadn’t heard this but apparently her step daughter got a quickie Vegas marriage and it lasted a week. Dina said her SD told her she didn’t think anyone would find out. She said she told her what does she mean. She’s Clint Eastwood’s daughter. She said all of Clint’s kids just don’t get that because of who their father is people pay attention to what they do. Makes total sense to me.

    Good morning everyone. Brrrr… 21 degrees here this A.M. But there’s a glowing object in the blue sky, that I haven’t seen for almost a week, so things are looking up.

    Well, it worked. Bravo got their desired results. Having Brandi preemptively “apologize” for what was to air in the upcoming 3 episodes, airing a live commercial during the last 15 minutes of BH, that Brandi would be phoning in live on WWHL to explain her actions. We all watched both shows. There were 600+ comments here alone last night discussing these shows. Lots of people are talking about it today. I would assume the ratings were up over last week’s broadcasts. Probably will be higher next week, too. And that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Ratings. So, as one wise man eloquently put it….Hooray for them! (Thanks MTH) It worked.

  21. chismosa™ says:

    Hi all—- I watched my FIRST Beverly Hills episode! Lol.
    It was FOMO (fear of missing out)
    I couldn’t resist. I NEVER EVER EVER infinity join any show anywhere without starting from the beginning.
    I don’t get how Kim is on with her jagged movements. What a mess of a woman. I feel like I’m watching michael j fox as a weathered older woman.
    Kyle and on all her interviews – her visible tongue when talking annoys me.

    I’m new to brandy so I tread lightly. I love the Jacqueline thing. Lol!
    Ducking now 😷💥🏃 🏃🏃

    It was fun to see it because I know you all love it so!

    I really don’t know how to say this and not ruffle feathers 🍂🍃🍁but Yolanda (who I only know from youse guys and tweets here)- I don’t take her brisk (?) – forthright? – I don’t know how to explain it – way of talking – as a big deal.
    Remember on RHNY – a few seasons ago- when the countLess was with Count- and he was having his friend over for dinner – the count was telling his kids – “hey you don’t know I may take you to Asia next year you never know” – like the way the father was talking – all my friends said my father speaks and looks the same way – it’s just a deadpan, honest very point blank way of speaking. In TRANSLATION when I hear my European side of my family speak– it’s very like that. I’m talking a German aunt I had – who spoke English to me, and others — I can’t put this into words but in the NATIVE tongue – it’s not as harsh sounding as it is in English.

    I’m just an outsider pointing this out. — I have no dog in this fight (yuck hate that idea but that’s what I mean) – as for Yo’s other issues with how she is with the gals that’s another story, I’m only speaking to the “learn English” to the Spanish workers (yes! I saw that blip), and to last night telling Jaqueline to stay out of it. I think in america, we have to tip toe and say, “I’m so so very sorry to interrupt but do you please with a cherry on top please mind not getting involved, oh please please ? I’ll do this-this-this- for you! I promise! And here’s a basket of muffins. Thanks!” IMHO some cultures don’t speak the native tongue like that.

    I’m sorry it’s hard to explain what I mean– I can see her saying it in her own language then in her mind transcribing it into English. And of course to us, very sensitive Americans it comes off as rude. Because we are SO PC about a lot of things and that’s fine, that is what it is. Jmho! 🏃🏃🏃🏃🙇💥✌️

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      Since you don’t really watch the show and have no dog in this fight I’m not even going to talk to you about it…j/k-you know me better than that-I will talk to you about ANYTHING!!!!

    • She isn’t in her native land speaking in her native tongue, or even in her own home. She’s in a Palm Springs ‘resort’, which may be foreign to most of us, speaking to the hostess of the party at her own dinner table. Sorry but I just think she’s a rude bitch. How long has she been in this country? She hasn’t learned some etiquette by now? Please

      • Cartwheels says:

        wasn’t Yolanda the one who so condescendingly spoke to her construction workers and told them that being that they live in the U.S. they need to learn the language? well, what about the manners and social etiquette of the country that you have lived in for the last 30 years?

    • I understand what you are saying. The “sweetheart” in the comment to Joyce is what I found condescending….

    • Powell says:

      Chismosa I get what your saying. A lot of what she and Lisa say, to me it’s their culture. But you can pick up when she and Lisa say something that’s not cultural. They mean it the way they say it.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Thanks 🙂

        • djprincessc says:

          Chismosa, I love Yolanda but last night there was no excuse for her behavior. She really disappointed me. She was being so rude, bothering Joyce about the pool and then the way she spoke to her about butting out at the table. I don’t find Yolanda icy or stoic but she was a bitch for no reason last night. Bottom line 😦

  22. Powell says:

    David Tutera is on Wendy. He said his holiday will be good cuz he’s got his daughter he adopted. I still think it’s crappy that him & his ex each took a child like they divided up furniture. How are those kids going to feel how they were split from their sibling cuz their parents got a divorce? They are very selfish. They didn’t think about the future.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Did he adopt her? I thought she was his biological child via the surrogate? I think it’s horrible to split twins and they couldn’t come to an agreement. I love David tho. Lol. He’s such a sweet kind hearted man IMO. I met him at a bridal show a few years ago. There was a runway show then him talking. We lucked out and got really great 1st row seats and made most of the video taken. After the show his assistant came and found my mom before the autograph session. She said David told her to go find me so we could meet in the back and I wouldn’t be trampled (with the foot I use a wheelchair instead of crutches for long outtings). So we went in the back vendor room where he took pics with us chatted and did autographs. Even when the event coordinator told him he was going to be late he stayed talking. He even got down to my level to chat instead of hovering over. Very likable man not to mentioned put together and handsome. Lol.
      I still dislike the separating twins. 😦

      • Powell says:

        He said adopted I think. I’m not 100% on that. I liked him too but not now that he has done that to those babies. IDK that they divorced. Do what a large percentage a divorced parents do. Share custody. You don’t split up kids like they’re a commodity. It’s not their fault they could not make their marriage work. Whatever they tell the kids when they are older they may still feel like the other didn’t want them.

    • chismosa™ says:

      That was QUITE contentious!

      I agree

  23. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Brandi’s blog…really? She’s mental. She just likes to laugh…and drink-but only because she was bored-it’s not her fault she was bored!! It was hot too…and boring…so she drank…and drank. But she didn’t do it because she’s a drunky she did it b/c stupid Joyce kept flipping her hair and that drove Brandi to drink…or maybe she was missing her kids-she drinks b/c of that I heard…or was it her birthday? That makes her drink too….Brandi has a lot of excuses why she’s drunky-none of them have anything to do with her..ITS NOT HER FAULT!!!!!

  24. Lulu says:

    Nancy!!! Have you read the MoS book? I now understand why Virginia’s “role” is strange. In the book the real “Virginia” refused to do a biography. But finally conceded to it however she left out a lot of details. Such as anything negative or perceived to be negative about her???? I can’t fault her on that I never would fess up dark secrets! Not that I have any LOL! It’s pretty interesting since it’s majority from Dr Master’s point of view. Have you ordered it yet?

    OT my DH never signed anything releasing a Pathologist to review the results. So we are fighting it at this point. Have you heard of this?

    • chismosa™ says:

      Lulu— so the book Masters of Sex by I believe it’s Thomas Maier – he’s an exec producer I think on the show — he had no direct input from VJ??
      Just WM?

      God I still find lizzy caplan so annoying in the role !
      And I really love her other work…. 😦
      👎

      • lulu says:

        From what I read! Thomas Maier tried for years to get Virginia to talk! What I am guessing is Virginia’s role as far as who she is outside the study is fiction. Kinds makes sense now.

        I agree Lizzy Caplan still sucks as a dramatic actress.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Hmmmmm

          Even her role IN THE STUDY is put into question – because it’s just based on published works of theirs, university/hospital reports and records – and then Masters’ TAKE on her role.
          And she outlived him so she could have definitely put her spin on this.
          It’s kind of quite subjective then.
          So interesting !

          – thanks – and I hope your hospital billing issue thing gets resolved

    • Powell says:

      I went to the dentist yesterday and they had me fill out new paper cuz they have a new system. The HIPPA was a part of it. Do I agree to the release of info to the doc I indicated on my form which is my primary caregiver. If I have elected services they will give it to me again to sign for that particular service. If your husband didn’t sign anything like that then it is very strange to me.

      • lulu says:

        Powell that’s what gets me too. The only form he signed was a release form to the insurance company to allow billing. I asked her to retrieve the form and clarify if it states that the Dr is allowed to talk to third party. Nothing!!!! WTH is wrong with his DR had he called us and told my dh the results or asked if he could talk to a third party. I wouldn’t be having this discussion!

        • Powell says:

          I know. We figure everyone is following the same laws, rules, and regulations. I don’t understand it either.

    • Nancy says:

      Hi lulu…I have not started reading it yet as I’m taking an on-line course right now.
      It’s on my to do list though. At least we now know why it’s been so hard to get
      any history on Virginia. I feel sorry for her as I don’t think she’s had a happy life.

      Re: your bill. Say the doctor ordered an X-Ray. I think many would assume that the
      Radiologist would be viewing the film and that there would be an extra charge for that. It’s the same thing with lab results hence a bill from the Pathologist.

      • Nancy says:

        That said…your doctor should have told you this at the time it was ordered
        and not assume that you already knew this.

      • lulu says:

        Nancy what online course are you taking if you don’t mind me asking??

        Not and shouldn’t be assumed. If this was in an emergency setting then fine no objection. I sent a letter objecting it so we will see what happens.

        • Nancy says:

          It’s called Acute Coronary Syndrome. Everyone in my immediate family has
          heart issues so I thought I should read up on the subject.

          Please let me know what happens re: your bill. If I may ask…what kind of lab’s
          did they run? Was it something unusual?

          • lulu says:

            Nancy its embarrasing and sorry rather not…… 😉 I’ll keep you posted though.

            Sorry to hear about your family members. Is it genetic?

            • Nancy says:

              I’m sorry lulu.

              Is it genetic? The million dollar question.

                  My sister lost a baby due to cardiac issues and her next daughter had heart
                  surgery when she was young and still needs one more. We are all over the map
                  so it’s hard to say where it’s coming from.

    Hello – One of my pet peeves is when cleaning products that I have used and liked for years come out with a new label saying ‘New and Improved’ I was happy with the product in the first place and saw no reason to improve it.

    I think Brandi found her success in being honest and unfiltered so she thought she had to improve herself to keep the momentum going. Big Mistake -imo

    Black people don’t swim. I’ve heard it said on Survivor, Amazing Race,, Real World, TMZ, and from various comedians. It’s a joke

    • Powell says:

      LOL ice. Most of the new and improved are just newly labelled. No improvement made. 🙂 I’m black and yes it’s a joke. 🙂 It’s mainly said because some black women don’t like getting their hair wet. That’s the truth for me. 🙂

    • I have heard the same thing, on these shows, from Black people, citing various reasons why they don’t swim, the weave being one of them but not the only one.

    • chismosa™ says:

      You should write to the cleaning products – on their website or whatever. Some companies LOVE when they get feedback

      I know when products say “new label” or “new look” but new and improved never sounds promising. 😦

    • Cartwheels says:

      It might be a joke when you are around friends who know you for a while and you feel comfortable enough, it is probably a joke when both people are in on the joke. Brandi came to the trip with the express purpose of annoying Joyce and she was already calling her another name on purpose, Brandi didn’t use it as a joke, she meant it as an insult to get under Joyce’s skin so she most definitely deserves the backlash she is getting.

      • djprincessc says:

        Agree with you Cartwheels. I think Brandi deserves what shes getting bc she was 100% trying to annoy Joyce. Black comment or not.

    • missusmc says:

      As a general rule, if you’re not a part of a different group of people, you don’t make generalizations, joking or not, about that different group of people. I make jokes about being a woman, but if my husband does? Not cool. Same with Brandi. She had no business saying that. The real housewives of Beverly Hills, with the exception of Joyce, whom the joke was said to, are entitled, white women. That comment, joke or not, didn’t belong on this franchise. It’s always ugly when racial stereotypes are thrown around by people who are not apart of that race.

      • djprincessc says:

        And you don’t think that EVERYONE stereotypes??? Not trying to start an argument but we all have made a stereotype remark in one way or another and I don’t believe ANYONE who says they never have.

        • missusmc says:

          Um, I never said I have never stereotyped. I was just explaining why Brandi’s comment was bad.

          • djprincessc says:

            I know you never said that you have never stereotyped. But since you brought up stereotyping I brought that up. People are SOOOOOO offended and up in arms over it whether here on the blog or on other sites when all the comment was, was a stupid stereotype. I just think its funny when people act so holier than though when who knows in their lives the things they say or do, myself included.

            I am not defending her, I don’t like her this season at all, I used to be a big supporter of hers but my brain checks out when the word OFFENDED comes up for every little thing, I think people are too sensitive these days and them being too sensitive and offended, OFFENDS ME!!!!! haha.

            • djprincessc says:

              **thou**

            • missusmc says:

              Ha! I can actually give her a little pass with her “in the moment” behavior. I mean, we’ve all had moments where we’ve acted like an a-hole, right? I just can’t get behind her non apology. She’s seen the footage. She knows how she looks. And she STILL can’t properly apologize. That blows my mind. I don’t expect perfection, but I do expect someone to be able to learn and grow from their mistakes. It appears Brandi is incapable of that.

            • chismosa™ says:

              DJ This comment OFFENDS ME.




              Hahaha! Jk. Best comment I’ve read. Thank you. 😋👍👍👏👏👏

        • missusmc says:

          Also, while again, I never said I’ve never stereotyped, I do try to not offend other people, and when someone says I have hurt their feelings I don’t continue to dig a deeper hole and justify what I have said. If Brandi had just said”Wow. You’re right. I’m sorry,” instead of talking about her black friends, the black men she’s slept with and Kenya Moores moral character to deflect from the real issue, none of us would be irritated with her. She refuses to acknowledge that what she said wasn’t right and continues to lace the blame back on the person she hurt, because that person is too sensitive and, in her mind, out to get her.

          • djprincessc says:

            I agree with you. But obviously she was trying to upset Joyce and apologizing is never going to happen. I can’t wait to see this all being brought up in the reunion!

    • djprincessc says:

      I’m pretty sure some of the Atlanta housewives have said it in previous seasons, and has anyone seen a show called “Fresh Prince of Bel Air?” Pretty sure it was said there as well. People are so uptight. I think Brandi was inappropriate for saying that but more than anything STUPID for saying it and thinking she wonldn’t get a backlash.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Remember when they tried to ‘improve’ Coca-Cola and there was protests in the streets.

  26. Shiny says:

    kyle needs to stop with the “it’s the truth” “it’s a fact” defenses about everything. Her just saying something is a fact doesn’t make it one. She means “it’s how I remember it” “it’s my opinion”, but that isn’t strong enough statement to suit her.

    And she (and other housewives) need a lesson in direct quotes: if you change the wording to make something worse than it was, then the other person DID NOT SAY IT.

    On lighter note – Kim TH’s last night were funny and got funnier as they kept adding more to the episode. I worry about her being so incoherent and spacy and “child-like” (although my children were never like that!), but it began to be adorable…especially compared to the rest of the episode.

    Kyle needed to shut up about Kim’s juicer – if it helps her stay sober, you should be glad to help her carry it to the car.

    • Powell says:

      Shiny Kyle makes that statement more than any of them. ITA w/you. Changing what the other person says changes the meaning to suit them.
      Kim is on meds. She could also have some brain damage from alcoholism. Just like Yo does mental memory therapy Kim needs to also do that.

    • I was dying at Kim’s “I don’t know” TH!!!!

  27. Powell says:

    LOL 129 comments. You all sure do talk a lot. 🙂

    • Shiny says:

      We’re having a conversation, no, you’re interrupting, no, it’s a conversation, no, then I could finish my sentence, no, not in a real conversation where I get to do all the talking, no, I am more important, no, I have better hair, no, it’s my turn because I’m short on camera time, no, my best remarks might get edited out so I need to say them three times, no, I’m counting how many times you talk at the table and you are ahead, dang you, no, you are ahead, no, you are….

      Keep on posting y’all — By comparison, we’ve all taken a vow of silence 😉

  28. Amber...Real Wife says:

    I posted this to Brandi’s blog.

    You are a disgusting pig! You are hateful and know nothing about Spanish culture but what you were injected with. ‘J’ is not pronounced with an ‘L’ but with an ‘H’ sound in words. However if you tell a Spanish speaking person your name is JOYCE they will call you JOYCE! Hence Jaqueline is not Laqueline you moron! Joyce wasn’t looking for a gift from you in the way of an offensive racist insult. She wanted you to behave like you had sense. Yup she’s the crazy one for thinking you could.

    • Powell says:

      Ooh Amber excellent!! Now watch Brandi tweets, “You all that left a mean comment on my blog should STFU.”. That’s all she knows to say. I would love to be a fly on a wall when one of her son’s tells her to STFU.

    • TexasTart says:

      Good for you posting that at Brandi’s blog and recognizing that Brandi actually thinks she gave Joyce a gift with her insults. Unbelievable.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Carlton in her blog also accused Joyce of using the ‘RaceCard’. Nothing about how Brandi was wrong but that Joyce ‘MissPuertoRico’ discriminated against witches! WitchiePoo and Brumhilda are so angry they’re protesting at the Joyce’s, DaiseySweep and Hoover factories.

        • chismosa™ says:

          I really wish I could access the bravo sites on my phone. I hope they don’t edit down all your comments !

        • Cartwheels says:

          I have to say that Joyce really went up few notches in my book.
          Not only did she handle Brandi with a grace I could never master but she also declared with pride her ethnic roots. Sometimes PR people are not very fond of acknowledging their black roots and I am positive Brandi meant this to bait Joyce into denying it but Joyce went about it with elegance and proudly declared she was a mixture of all three races.
          Brandi is ignorant but more than anything she is malicious.

  29. Powell says:

    My mom used to watch OC, NY, and ATL but not for a while now but she read as about Joyce. She said Joyce doesn’t want Kandi to be her own woman and agreed w/many of you that she may have mental issues. She said maybe she’s got th onset of Alzheimer’s.

    • lulu says:

      If Kandi has any hope of being in a relationship she has to sever ties with Joyce. I hate to say it nothing like having someone nonstop talk garbage about your fiance. Eventually her relationship will be ruined.

      I know first hand what Kandi is going through. I went through it. Misery loves company why would mama Joyce want Kandi to dump Todd?????? She’s worried the money financial support will stop. I severed ties with my entire family that was part of the reason.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Lulu I’m sorry to hear that …… I hope you’re in a good place. 💗💗💗

        • lulu says:

          Yes I am in a MUCH better place! I couldn’t believe just how stressed out I was for so long. Once the ties were cut I felt an enormous weight lifted. I’ve never regretted nor had I felt sad about it either.

          Though in my current struggles I always think its karma. Had I not severed ties with them nothing like this would happen and that its fate.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Wait that bad things are happening now? Or good things ? I hope all good things for you. Hugs. xxoo

          • Nancy says:

            Meaning that you are getting punished for cutting ties? I sure hope not.

          • Powell says:

            No Lulu. Things have happened and will good or bad cuz that’s life. If you had to move on w/just the family that’s in your house then you had a good reason. Don’t ever feel any sort of karma biting you in the behind because you did what you thought was best. You said a weight was lifted. A weight it worry, guilt, anxiety. You are free. Don’t ever forget that. Your family has missed out on your 2 little miracles. Not you.

            • lulu says:

              That’s reality Powell I just can’t help feeling that way when things get bad. I look for an excuse since I look at my friend and their lives are stable. Mine is a constant unforeseen battle.

      • Nancy says:

        (((lulu))) Good for you for sticking up for your husband. I have severed ties as well.

              • Nancy says:

                Thanks Powell and lulu. After our father passed away it was just my sister and I
                so it would have been great if we knew about our 1/2 brother. He just turned 60
                so it’s a shame.

                • Powell says:

                  I get it.

                • lulu says:

                  • Nancy says:

                    lulu…Yes we found each other a year ago. He lives in Prince Edward Island, Canada.
                    He’s gay and has a long term partner who I adore as we have the same sense of
                    humor. He’s a close friend with one of my favorite skater of all time. They breed
                    Shar Pei dogs and also show them. They even had a pug about 10 yrs ago.
                    I’m hoping to get up there soon. Thanks for asking. 🙂

            • chismosa™ says:

              Sorry to hear about this Nancy. We have our little “breaks” in our family that I can’t take either. Listen to Powell – she’s wise — not YOUR fault.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I was thinking of that possibility too Powell. Maybe at the reunion Kandi will open up more about her mom instead of just tear up.
      Especially after next week where she talks to the lawyer about them.

  30. VV™ says:

    Are we to believe Brandi when she says she brough rag magazines to the Puerto Rico trip because Lisa had asked her?
    Why did Brandi agree? Did Lisa put a gun to her head? What was the purpose of the magazine to read in front of camera? Was it to read gossip on their private time?
    Why are some believing Brandi about this but don’t believe Brandi when she said there was a plot to take Lisa down at S2 reunion.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      We haven’t seen any of that yet so who is believing Brandi?

    • Cartwheels says:

      Brandi didn’t bring magazines to the Puerto Rico trip, she brought them to this Palm Spring trip but the issue of Lisa being the one who asked her to bring them will come up on the trip to P.R.
      I have no doubt that Lisa, Brandi and Yolanda came with a clear agenda so it is possible.

      • VV™ says:

        Yes, three seasons of trying to take Lisa down and failing, Kyle’s approach is different this year. However, if I can see it. My guess is most people will figure it out too.
        Don’t forget the Richards Sister and Brandi are tight now.
        I’m still wondering how Joyce is feeling Today after Kyle defended Brandi on WWHL last night.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Joyce seems odd man out. It’s only her and Jacqueline out there ? She’s not on a team yet ?


          As for Bethenny- very calculated. They sent in Brandy first. Then Kim. Then Kyle.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Ps VV I feel like Kyle changed her hair color to not be the black haired one like Joyce. Too much comparison. I may have said this before.
          She looked more stunning with it darker.

          • VV™ says:

            I actually think Kyle is pretty (after nose job). I too think darker hair looks better. Kyle’s mean girl attitude is what I don’t like about her.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Kyle is very pretty with the dark or the light hair. I think the lighter hair makes her look younger.

            • Powell says:

              I think Kyle is very pretty. I think she has beautiful hair. I want that hair. But Kyle thinks she’s the only one that has beautiful hair.

        • Powell says:

          I don’t care what the sisters and Brandi think they are going to do to take Lisa down cuz the sisters may be born and bred in LA but they are not Hilton’s and they are not Disney actresses. They don’t garner the same respect Lisa has. Lisa is a biz woman that HW has taken notice of. Who did DWTS and who did Celebs Swim whatever it was called?

        • Buttercream says:

          VV – the dicksisterssuck@chess … they are forming an alliance with Brandi because 1) they don’t have a viable story line this season 2) they can take down Lisa with all the inside scoop Brandi has on her former BFF 3) squeezes out Yolo and Lisa for Season # ? what # r they on now?? Just my best guess …what’s yours?

        Did she cry leaving her babies for a few days? 😉

    Watching Atl. Todd said hi to Joyce and she ignores him twice. She’s just being nasty.

    • Powell says:

      Joyce said since Todd Kandi has no other family. Kandi has no pictures of her momma up. He didn’t buy a big enough ring. Asked Todd will he sign a pre-nup that doesn’t include the words “in the manner to which I’ve been accustomed”. – Those remarks seal it for me. It’s about Joyce and Kandi ‘s money.

  39. VV™ says:

    In the meantime Kyle is retweeting and replying to as many tweets that say nice things about her AND Joyce. She used to only do it with tweets with her name only. Now, she’s retweeting and replying to a noticeable increased amount of tweets that include Joyce. I think Kyle is feeling guilty that she had to have Brandi’s back last night. I think maybe Joyce will figure out that with Kyle it was all along about taking Lisa down and nothing to do with being a genuine friend.

  42. djprincessc says:

    Just want to clarify since it was getting skinny up there but HPV is not an STD but an STI. There are over 40 strains of it, but the most common is the one that causes cancer (with no symptoms usually) and the one that causes warts but usually doesn’t lead to cancer. 99% of people WILL get some type of hpv strain in there life but have no clue because our bodies fight it off. I know sooooo many women that have had HPV and it went away and then I know women who have it and their body didn’t fight it off and have had to have lesions removed from their cervix. Idk which strain Brandi had/has but I do agree that its kinda wrong to criticize her for it when she caught it while being married and her husband cheating on her. I’m just gonna take a guess and say she got the warts one. Now that shes single whatever STDS shes picked up (if she has) are a different story. lol.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      E don’t know really how she caught it…she could have caught it from one of the threesomes she so proudly brags about…who knows.

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

        how are you feeling dj? Did you go to the doc yet? That pain on your side is still there i read-I hope you aren’t in too much pain!!!

        • djprincessc says:

          Thanks Jill!! Its weird, the pain is in my left abdomen area. It doesn’t hurt when I breathe or anything like that, but it hurts when pressed or if I stretch too far. I have no clue what it is, but I am going to the doctor next Monday, that was the soonest she could see me. I’m hoping I pulled a muscle or something but its been almost 2 months so Idk how long a muscle can be pulled for?!? lol. I am falling apart. lol.

          • Shiny says:

            ovary and associated ligaments attaching it can hurt like crazy when pressed if they are inflamed etc. Glad you’re going to a doctor to check it out. No fun to hurt and worry for 2 months. Keep us posted – you’re not falling apart, a piece of you is just misbehaving.

            • djprincessc says:

              Hi Shiny!! Thanks!! I like your name bc I like shiny stuff, but its been a while since I got anything shiny! haha!

              Idk, if it is ovary related because its not in that area, this prob around 3 inches under my breast in the rib/abdomen area. Thanks for your kind words, I do feel like at such a young age I am falling apart but your right! 🙂

      • djprincessc says:

        True Jill I thought of that too, but she did say she got it from Eddie cheating so I’m going with that. Idk if the 3somes were later in the marriage when she was trying to keep him?? No idea.

      • Powell says:

        Well stupid Michael Douglas said that he got throat cancer from HPV. Idiot. The public was satisfied that he had throat cancer and is now in recovery. He didn’t have to go there. His ex Deidre came out and said “he didn’t get it from me.”. So that’s got the media hoping. Did he get it from C Zeta-Jones? In my opinion that has something to do w/ them separating among other things. I think that hit it on the head cuz she left not too long after he opened his trap. We have heard for yrs how MD was a dog, many women. CZJ had put in the pre-nup how much more she would get if infidelity took place.. Now like it has been said it can’t be helped. That’s a reason why the vaccine was developed for teens.

        • djprincessc says:

          I remember that Powell, I’m still confused to as if you can get it throat cancer from it, since cancer isn’t contagious? lol. I mean the guy did/does smoke a lot who knows if he chewed tobacco as well. I would think he got it that way. I know new things are coming out all the time about oral HPV.

    • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

      Agree with you on HPV. djprincessc

      • djprincessc says:

        Thanks Kelly, its true. Its nothing to really be embarrassed about, but it still has the stigma of a “STD” I’d be more embarrassed about the wart one I guess lol, but more than anything I think people forget about AIDS/HIV and Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. My doctor told me G&C are the most common stds these days and how she ALWAYS tests for them since they are hard to detect. I’d be worried about those a lot more!

        • missusmc says:

          I have a couple of friends who have HPV. One of them had fertility issues because of it. You’re absolutely right about it. That’s why the vaccine was invented and why parents are pressured to have their daughters automatically get it!

          • djprincessc says:

            Ooooooo missusmc, thats where we are probably going to disagree. I am 100% against the vaccine. I have heard/read so many bad things about it and I just don’t think its safe. Beside me not believing in it healthwise, I think it encourages young girls who are so impressionable to have sex at an early age. I still believe in abstinence and will encourage my future daughters that while sex is amazing and something to look forward too when in a committed loving relationship, it can also have serious life changing consequences when not ready for it. I think anyone under 18 is way too young for sex (totally my opinion and not judging anyone) but when you are 13, 14, 15 how in the world can you be prepared for sex?? Those are confusing ages! Sex/relationships are confusing as an adult!! lol. I just don’t think 15 year old girls should get that shot (again my opinion) my cousin got it at 14 I think.

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

              My daughter is 13 and getting the shot or not-to me-isn’t really about having sex. It’s not a conversation I need to have with my daughter right now and if I do decide to have her get the shot-it will in not be a license to become sexually active because that’s not what the shot is about-for her-or me…right now. If it prevents her from getting something later-that’s great-but that’s not a today conversations for me and her. (Idk why I thought you needed to this but-maybe you don’t? Idk…I’m like Kim-she doesn’t know either)

              • LaineyLainey says:

                My daughter got it, can’t remember how old she was and she didn’t turn into a ho-bag. I didn’t even worry one second that she would.

                • djprincessc says:

                  Oh no Nancy, I def don’t think every girl who gets it turns into a Ho Bag, lol. I’m just worried that it CAN encourage young girls to be more sexually active or sooner since they think they are protected. But like I said more than anything the shot scares me healthwise bc of things I’ve read.

                  And I just called you Nancy! hahahahhahah OHHHH MMMMMM GEEEE. Did I just pull a Brandi Jacqueline casino!? It was an accident!! Promise!!! lol.

              Oh, I wasn’t trying to advocate the vaccine. I really haven’t thought about it enough to know how I feel about it. Besides, I have young boys, so it won’t affect me. I was just saying that HPV is so common, the vaccine needed to be created, to prevent cervical cancer. That’s all 🙂

              • djprincessc says:

                Gotcha, it is very common. Good thing you have boys though! lol.

              • Jules says:

                Boys ARE the ones that need to to get the shot so they don’t give it to the girls. Ask your doctor about giving them the vaccine. PLEASE do this.

            • chismosa™ says:

              DJ I was under the impression there are some possible health effects from the vaccine. Things they are still finding out. That is what concerns me about it— NOT the “turning into a Ho-bag” stuff.

  43. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Where did Bravo get the idea that the demographic for HW is into fake lesbian making out and flirting? Seriously the last thing I want to see is Carlton looking at Brandi and liking her chops!!! It’s so put on and fake I can’t stand it!!!

    • Nancy says:

      Jill…May I ask you something without you cutting off my head?

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

        It is a trick question?

          Of course Nancy-you can ask me anything…I stopped cutting of heads years ago

          • Nancy says:

            Why does Brandi get you so rattled? Does she remind you of someone?
            I’m playing the arm chair shrink right now.

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

              DO NOT READ THIS LIKE IM YELLING!! I’m not I swear!!!

              She doesn’t remind me of anyone-I swear I do not know anyone like her. I think I was mostly annoyed with her last season b/c she tried to play like she was the victim of big bad Adrienne and lots of folks went along with it. I also have a very strong dislike for woman who play the damsel in distress crap-makes women in general look stupid and weak-I ain’t no weak ass and I don’t appreciate woman who play that crap up. She’s just annoying to me and very dramatic and attention seeking. I don’t find her funny nor cute. I don’t think she is a truth cannon I think she likes to blab people’s business to make them look bad but then cry when the same thing happens to her-she plays like she has balls of steel but she has no balls at all. She rude crass and she acts like a teenager-she’s just not my cup of tea!

                    I got you last year ! You said (totally could be making this up) you are here for the entertainment and not invested in any of these housewives, but your read of Brandy was she was a total BS artist. (Does that sound close? … That’s what is in my head, and I’m sticking to it!)

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

                      in that way. I would love to take her to an AA meeting with me.

          hmm .. where’s that pic of Ken saying “we don’t care” and no, it’s more of a turn on for Andy and a turn off for the viewers ….

  44. Nancy says:

    I wonder how we could see the episode of when they were in Paris?
    Does anyone know?

    • ladebra says:

      it’s on iTunes, there are two episodes in Paris. You might find it on a Bravo app maybe? the episodes are “The Real Housewives of Paris, Part Un” and “….. Part Deux”

      • Nancy says:

        I’ve never been on iTunes. We have to watch those episodes so we can see
        exactly what Yolanda said to Kim or not. It’s driving me crazy as what I thought
        I saw maybe wasn’t reality.

  45. ladebra says:

    I hate to say it but Brandi is getting lots attention over that racist remark. So whether she is a racist or just an inappropriate commenter, we can be guaranteed to get more of it. I’m predicting. My opinion. Just sayin’

  46. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Several points to make.

    Did anyone, the HouseHagsBH, stop to think that maybe Joyce didn’t want to go into the pool because she didn’t want to leave Kyle/Kim by themselves? Remember Lisa didn’t want to be left alone as YoFo joined the gaggle of hoes in the pool? Just saying.

    Did anyone notice that Brandi threatened Kyle when she said “We could HURT you if we wanted to” while YoFo and Kyle were talking? In short I think she was saying we can make you cry if we decide to go for the jugular. It’s a Plan. I believe that’s why VileKyle jumped at the opportunity to ‘get in bed’ w/ Brandi. Better to have the scary puppet on your side attacking others than popping out the closet at the most inopportune moments and going against you.

    GrumpyBrumhilda’s dirty ass accused Joyce of using the race card. As the chirren are apt to say… I feel some kind of way that a Brit dares to throw that terminology around when she may not know the history of pervasive racism that Blacks and Hispanics have faced. The same racism that AfricanAmericans faced Hispanics of every color were discriminated against as well. I am 2 shades darker than Joyce as RealDad is ‘white’ and RealMom is ‘black’, but both sides had a few doses of Indian as well. My immediate family ranges from fair to black and I actually have 2 copper colored RealUncles with reddish blonde hair and a few fair blonde RealNephews with grey-green eyes. During the civil rights era RealParents and our multi-colored families all faced racism because once those in charge heard the accent it was a wrap!. LOL PuertoRicans… you CAN take them anywhere but it’s gonna be a SCENE! 😛

    If Lisa is supposed to be the ‘bad guy’ this season why is Brandi coming off as a SuperSluttyDrunkenRacistSuperVillain and YoFo as her HeavyHandedBunglingValetHandler? I wish a bitch would tell me to butt out of a conversation being held at a dinner party i’m throwing! She’d be wearing LuMan’s dirty boots up her HeineyHO while singing ‘The groves are alive…with sound of lemons….

    Brandi is jealous of Joyce because she’s beautiful, younger than the others and married to a rich man. Also she’s just as hot or HOTTER than Brandi and BitchyBrandi is no longer the young, skinny, tall one.

    • ladebra says:

      Love your POVs Amber – always have, and always will 🙂

      Ok, I’m going back to work now :-<

    • LaineyLainey says:

      THAT WAS GOLD, AMBER, GOLD!!!! also, she’s pissy because Joyce outed her as a backstabber to Lisa (even though Lisa wouldn’t listen).

    • Cartwheels says:

      Joyce is everything that Brandi will never be.
      She not only has class and beauty, she also has smarts, she has a master degree and uses her free time doing charitable work. Joyce has a man who clearly adores her and is rich to top it all. Younger, prettier, classier and with gorgeous hair while Brandi has to wear weaves.

      But I think the root of her dislike is that Brandi wanted to recruit her to her camp and it just didn’t work, she loves the creepy admiration of Carlton but Joyce doesn’t give a crap if Brandi befriends her or not and Brandi for some crazy reason thought this season she could be the HBIC. Brandi had to fake story lines, she had to pretend to be Cedric’s friend , then Adrienne’s friend, then she had to make up a gang up meeting, had to reveal a surrogacy and then make up a lawsuit , all of this with the only goal of making it into a full time Bravo housewife. Joyce didn’t have to do any of this. She didn’t come to the show through the back door like Brandi, she made it through the big door and that was probably itching Brandi to no end.

    • Powell says:

      LOLAmber. “The groves are alive…with the sound of lemons…” I was singing it to myself. Haha. 🙂
      You know what? Brandi wants to go for the jugular w/people. Someone needs to tell her to bring it. She them what she’s got. Brandi is nobody. She claims wow is me. I have two little children to raise. I need a paycheck. She doesn’t get that she’s temporary. She can be gone next season and she’s not getting a call to act on Glee. She’s not getting a call from Donald to go on Celebrity Apprentice. She’s not getting a call from ABC for DWTS. She’s not getting a call for a guest spot on a comedy. She’s not getting modeling gigs in Milan. She’s one season away from not having a job the way she’s going. So if she doesn’t have a job to support her boys she’ll have no one to blame for herself.

  47. Powell says:

    DJP how you doin? Did you go to the doc? I hope you’re better.

    • djprincessc says:

      Hi Powell, I’m ok. Hanging in there. I go to the doctor next Monday, that was the soonest she could see me. Thanks for asking. How is the weather where you are? Forgive me, I can’t remember what state you’re in, I always see you posting about cold and snow. Its been really cold here in socal the past few days/week!! Hope you’re having a great day!! xoxo.

      • Powell says:

        Ok that’s good. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that everything is ok. I’m in MD, the DMV-DC, MD, VA. It’s cold brrrrrrr. And we had snow today. Schools were closed, government offices were closed. I know many places get much more snow than we do but it’s bad in our area when it snows. We get bad ice too. Schools get closed when we get really bad ice. It’s melting but it’s going down to the 20s so school will either be closed or 2 hrs late. Summer pleaseeeeeee.

        • Nancy says:

          It’s been cold here in La La Land.

          Ok Powell, you lost me with all those abbreviations. Are you in Maryland, Washington or Virginia or all 3 and I am just too stupid to get this?? I don’t proclaim to be THAT smart so why am I not understanding this?? ahhahahahahah… I know the snow must be horrible but kinda sounds fun to me since we don’t get snow, idk how you do it because last night it was 48 degrees and I was dying. lol.

          • Nancy says:

            LOL!!!!! I wonder if you have a hernia?

            • djprincessc says:

              Ugh I hope not Nancy, I’ve never had surgery. The only type of surgery I had was when my wisdom teeth had to come out. It was painful and I woke up crying. I’m hoping I just bruised a rib or pulled something. Thats what I’m going with, I’ll find out Monday hopefully!

      Oh no Powell!! I hope it stays on! In case get some blankets ready.

      • Nancy says:

        lulu…Re: my 1/2 brother. My niece was doing a project in school on
        genealogy so they went into the Internet link. Just by chance my sister read
        one of the comments and it turned out to be my 1/2 brothers partner. He was
        asking about our father that was a NHL ref. Needless to say a bell went off in
        my sisters head and the rest is history. We would have never found each other
        if my niece would have picked a different topic to do in school. Funny how things
        work out at times.

        I’m sorry to hear about your story but I totally understand. (((lulu)))

        • Nancy says:

          This is the sad part. Our father never knew he had a son as his girlfriend
          never told him that she was pregnant. Plus our father passed away before
          we knew about each other so they never got to meet. It was no secret that
          our dad wanted a son as he was a professional athlete so I’m sure they would
          have loved to be in each others lives. 😦

          • LaineyLainey says:

            That is sad, Nancy. I hope you can get to know him now.

          • lulu says:

            Oh wow strange how life and circumstance happen. Its kind of like fate brought you together. I’m curious as to why the woman didn’t tell your father? Did you meet him?

            • Nancy says:

              They met when my father played hockey in the Air Force so he was only there
              for a short time and then had to leave. I’m sure she had her reasons. I would
              have loved to have met her to explain that my father would have been there for her.
              I’m guessing it was a summer fling?

  49. Exit4 says:

    Much as I loathe Brandi-I won’t go so far as to call her a racist. To me that connotates a hatred of other leaves. Serious hatred. I don’t think she hates black people. My husband is Cuban, but born here, and our friends (and me) have made jokes about him being plucked off an inner tube in the Gulf. It is ok to joke. But it can be taken to far. I do have black friends and the not swimming thing is true for some-for different reasons. The hair being one-chlorine can wreak havoc on some African American hair.

    However, she is ignorant. See last weeks Stevie wonder comment. And I guess the key thing here is Joyce isn’t black? So why go there? She’s just dumb. Sometimes you have to watch what you say in other company.

    • Exit4 says:

      What? According to iPhone Brandi Hates leaves. That’s new!

    • djprincessc says:

      I agree with you Exit!! I’m hispanic american, half mexican, half honduran and I think mexican jokes are funny. Thats just me though. And you’re right Joyce isn’t black, shes a boricua. Bottom line Brandi was just trying to upset her in any way she could.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      For some reason I’m recalling Joyce saying one of her grandparents is black. So she does claim that ethnicity. I’m going to go search around to see if that was what she wrote.

    • I’m pretty sensitive to it – I’ll fully admit that.

      To me racism isn’t necessarily hatred.

      Here’s an example. Four people go to a job interview. Three are white and one is black. The person doing the interview doesn’t hate any of them because of the color of their skin, but feels that maybe the black person can’t do the job as well as the other candidates because the job is for life guarding, and they assume the black person can not swim as well as the others. They tell themselves they’d hire the person for another job. That is racism without hatred.

      My main issue with Brandi is how she made Joyce feel – and when she brought race into it – her behavior was just that much worse.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        THANKYOU.

      • cusi77 says:

        Very well put and truthful. That is the perception but the best swimmers in the world are Black… so it is many times, just plain ignorance , racism without hate but misinformation.

      • Exit4 says:

        I see what you’re saying. When my oldest was born-we have him the English equivalent of my husbands name, because he said “why make it harder?”. More so because of stereotypes.
        The only reason I can’t agree with the lifeguarding example is because when you are interviewing for that- you have to take a performance test, so if a black person outperforms the white people, clearly they can swim and will get the job. Chalk that up to all my years at the jersey shore! Lol

        Even minorities follow stereotypes. I have black friends that roll up the windows and lock their doors if they have to go through Camden-because it’s smart! The KKK marched on my college campus and I shared that story with a black friend and she doesn’t judge me. She understood why I was there and appreciated hearing what I learned.

        People of other races (like my husband) are clearly aware of stereotypes. And generally don’t get angry when you ask about them. As long as your intentions are good. Racism for me is people who show up at the White House with nasty signs directed at the presidents race as opposed to policies. Or when my husband was called a spic in school because of his name. When he was as American as that kid. Or people couldn’t play at “the dirty Mexicans” house-when he’s actually Cuban. That’s racism to me. FTR Mexicans aren’t dirty.

        NMD-I’m am asking because I’m curious-are you sensitive because you are a minority or because you are just simply sensitive to others? No offense in that question AT ALL-I’m just interested in your answer. No casino brewing I promise!

    @Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders ~~~~~~I apologize that my tweet regarding STD’s from last night has insulted you. (last blog)

    My Tweet~~~~”I wouldn’t get in the same pool as Brandi if you paid me. #std #pig”

    I’m fully educated on STD’s and have been since grammar school. I’m aware that you can’t “catch” one in a pool. The tweet was sarcastic because of how Brandi puts herself out there. My friend Cusi and me have joked a lot over the fact that Brandi calls herself (more than once) a whore, a dirty girl and a ho. Also, her drunken ways of showing her privates does not help her case.

    You stated that “Brandi was open about what STD Eddie gave her not so it could be thrown at her in a very disparaging manner. She did not choose to get and STD her husband gave it to her because he was a cheating PIG not Brandi”.

    Sorry, but I wouldn’t believe anything Brandi tells the public. She’s an alcoholic and they are the best liars.

  55. looneylucy says:

    My opinion is that Brandi is flat out jealous of Joyce. Joyce was a pageant girl and has been recognized for her beauty. Brandi hanging out with Lisa and Yo who are older, flirting with Ken, flirting with Andy’s dad, she’s used to being the young beautiful one with an outrageous opinion/mouth. Attention big time. Enter Joyce. A recognized beauty. Brandi’s going to put her down in any way possible. She’s afraid Joyce is going to steal her thunder. Lisa’s older, Yo’s older, Kyle’s on the married and mommy train, Kim’s on the recovery train, Carlton’s on the not so attractive (we all see it).

    In any event, Brandi should realize there will be more physically beautiful women in the world you may have to deal with personally. You won’t always be the pretty one, my love (lol). She can’t stand competition! (Kyle & Joyce with the hair flipping are vomit inducing, but not relevant to this convo!).

  58. VV™ says:

    Paris trip was July 13th. Reunion was filmed July 31. Kim and Kyle waited 18 days to tell Lisa that Yolanda was bad mouthing her AND the only reason they did was because Kyle got upset at Yolanda during reunion.
    Why is Kim complaining about Lisa not being a true friend? Why is Kyle complaining about Lisa not being supportive?

          That’s not correct. Yolanda told Lisa about it before the reunion.

          • kit9 says:

            Then they both did because I remember it because it gave credibility to Kyle’s story. That she didn’t just come up with it on the spot in a fight with Yolanda-rather that Kyle and Kim told Lisa about it almost immediately. I don’t remember anything about Yolanda telling her. Why would Yolanda do that when she claimed it never happened?

      • VV™ says:

        I don’t recall that at all. Who said Kyle told Lisa? Is this from a blog or interview?

          Thank you Chismosa! I just wanna stop falling apart. Last night when I was getting home from work, I was getting out of my car walked to the passenger side to get my stuff, got my stuff and when I stood straight, my neck totally went out and I got a HUGE pinched nerve on BOTH sides. It hurt sooooo bad. I walked in and told my parents well its official, I’m a mess. lol. I took a muscle relaxer and today its better on one side, the other side I still have a huge knot. Taking another muscle relaxer in a bit so I should be fine tomaro. #almost30problems

            This neck thing is new.

              Haha ya I didn’t wanna bore everyone with it and then I realized its part of me falling apart. Thats nothing though, I’ll be fine tomaro. Muscle relaxers are the best for pinched nerves and back issues.

            DJ I has the beginning of pinched nerves years ago- thank baby Jesus it never progressed (knock wood ✊) – but I can imagine how painful it is the burning !

            Get yourself together! And everyone is pretty cool here about us discussing stuff. We can go to the health page also. 🙂

    It seems like Joyce has some acting experience and Siberia is a 13 week show. Maybe this is why Brandi is so jealous.

    To the Shah watchers: did you notice how the camera kept showing Reza’s dirty soles of his feet? Those bravo cameramen are meanies. I mean he’s Mr. designer duds, Mr. Hermes, … The feet don’t fit. we must acquit?

    Another black and white puppy! And 518!

    I was wondering this same thing, and I had forgotten it was ATL that Todd worked on … Hmmm

  66. ladebra says:

    But it doesn’t sound like all the pre-show hype helped the BH ratings. Dare I hope the viewers are just as sick of the trash as we are?

  67. ladebra says:

    I feel like maybe everyone moved last night and didn’t tell me. Wake up you guys! Oh well , can’t help myself. Apparently Stinker is not doing well this season. But she is in love so no worries!

    • TexasTart says:

      Good morning, ladebra! No early birds around here much, I’ve been up 3 hours already and somehow managed avoid the blog..sorry I missed you!

      Thanks for the ratings, I was interested to see how BH did. Have a great day!

    • Powell says:

      Thks Ladebra. Hopefully this is her last season.

    I normally just read but I find myself with a desire to say something–so here goes. I began with the HW at the start and now the only one I watch anymore is HWoBH. I fear that is changing. Here is the real kicker–who would ever believe that the one person I got any joy from was Kim??? I use to back Brandi and Yo–I too am a Chronic Lyme pt. but now I can not tolerate either. I love Lisa but she isn’t enough to keep me interested in this train wreck. So my question about Brandi–how much is her actions pushed by the producers? and is it possible she took their “do what ever u want” card to far? Debbie

    • Powell says:

      Welcome Debbie. Here we use the term “crapfest” thks to our MTH instead of train wreck. LOL. No but I totally get what you’re saying. Please keep chatting w/us. 🙂

    • TexasTart says:

      Hi Debbie, sorry to hear you have to deal with Lyme disease. Even at that rate, Yolanda crossed the line, interesting. And that is a problem for the Real Housewives in general…when we run out of people too root for, or people we like, then why bother.

      As for your question; I had not considered Brandi fueled by producers and my gut feeling is she was not given free reign…it’s just Brandi being Brandi and the producers put it out there for our enjoyment –but it’s not very enjoyable for many viewers, some of which have whittled down to only watching BH.

      I think the Kyle & Carlton shopping trip was completely unrealistic and set up by producers. But that is not what this episode will be remembered for. It’s sad to see BH be virtually destroyed by one person.
