Revenge is Sweet – Joanna Krupa Star of Hard Rock Event while Brandi Glanville was Uninvited plus #RHOA and #RHOBH Cast Blogs Blogged

Revenge is Sweet – Joanna Krupa Star of Hard Rock Event while Brandi Glanville was Uninvited by NMD

It is no secret that Brandi Glanville and Joanna Krupa do not get along.  Brandi has a potty mouth, and she used it to slam Joanna Krupa’s lady parts on a Watch What Happens Live episode that aired earlier this fall.  There are lines that most reality stars don’t cross.  Both Brandi and Joanna cross them.  Brandi has proven to be an untrustworthy co-worker.  She takes her co-workers secrets, and announces them on National TV.  Joanna does the same thing.  She exposed her sister’s secrets on air, and also went for the jugular for her castmates.  I would have trouble picking a side in this dirty fight.

Last night, the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel brand launched their 2014 Calendar in a star-studded event.  Headlining the show were Mark McGraw and Joanna Krupa.  Notably absent was Brandi Glanville, who was “fired” at the last minute as the Hard Rock didn’t feel she represented their brand at this point in time.  Their statement:

As a company who prides itself on its core values of “Love All, Serve All,” SHRHC has decided to proceed with the planned party without Ms. Glanville’s appearance due to recent developments that include remarks towards African Americans made by Ms. Glanville on her hit Bravo TV show Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

“Until this situation is behind her, our organization feels it’s best to reinforce our culture and values at this time, which consist of love and respect for all,” said President John Fontana.

The party went on into the night, and a local DJ has this to say to Brandi:

IAmOrlando ‏@IAmOrlando11h

Taking @joannakrupa and @karentsierra for a swim. Beauties who know I can swim!

When IAmOrlando received a little twitter love from the Brandi supporters, he tweeted,

“Only an idiot lets a gutter joke ruin their schedule and opportunities”

And when someone called him an idiot, he replied:

“Far from it. Always been the top 10% of class, and lettered on swim team”

Brandi responded to the news by tweeting up a storm of her own, responding to the news with responses such as this: “I’m not a fucking racist never have been never will be.”  She also came under fire for being seen with Amanda from Big Brother – a woman who has caught heat for her own inappropriate comments this past year.  Brandi clarified quickly that Amanda simply stopped by her table at a restaurant to say Hi – and she had no idea who she was.

The fun continues on twitter.  She posted a photo of a random guy in bed with the caption, “This is who I woke up 2”   Then immediately clarified that it wasn’t a hookup and he played for another team.  

At this point it’s just sad.  Yet somehow I can not tear my eyes away – as much as I want to.  The strange thing is none of this is translating into higher ratings for the show.

Nene Leakes: Clearing up the “Head” Doctor Comment

A hit dog always holla! I never said I knew Phaedra in school. I mean why would I say that? She’s 21 years old and I’m 121 years old, right? I’m sure that’s what she would want the world to think. Hit your rewind button! I didn’t say I knew Phaedra was “The Head Doctor,” I said it was a rumor! We have all heard rumors about somebody we didn’t go to school with. It wasn’t said with malicious intent, but it was said. I’m definitely a jokester, but the one thing I don’t practice is lying.

That’s your defense?  It may not be a lie but it wasn’t necessary to mention the lawyer used to be called the “head” doctor.  It was very vulgar and inappropriate.  Nene is employing Housewife101: If you want to stir up drama about another housewife, just mention the rumors you have heard about them and let the poop hit the fan.

This is the show we signed up for! Don’t get new now! I can’t count the number of times Phaedra has lied about my character. It works like this: don’t ever think you can dish on me and I can’t do the same to you.

Two wrongs are still wrong.  The lawyer can give as good as she gets so watch your back!

Let’s welcome Chuck and Mynique to the show! As you can already tell, Chuck knows a few of these ladies in more ways than one! I’m not privy to the relationships he’s had with the other ladies, but I have heard all the rumors, so stick around, I think he does a pretty good job of letting us know.

Nene needs someone to have her back since Dwight has deserted her so I guess Chuck is his replacement.  Wonder what he knows….

Kenya Moore: Joyce should trust Kandi

Ironically, I would rather have a mother that acts inappropriately to protect me than not have a mother at all. My Aunt Lori is my mother’s sister and has always been a mother figure to me. She is smart, driven, successful, and kind. Since birth, my mother made the decision at age 16 to pretend she never had me. She has never spoken to me. Even if present in the same room with other people and family, she pretends that I simply don’t exist. She pretends I’m invisible.

That is sad.  It goes against the natural order of things.

I fully understand that there has been a void in my life because of this, which relates to my romantic relationships. I have never had any issues with falling in love, dating, sustaining long-term relationships, or attracting great men in my life, who have loved me unconditionally. Although I have had now seven proposals of marriage, I have never accepted one.

So how does not having a mother and not accepting seven proposals of marriage have to do with the other?

As my Aunt pointed out, I choose “unavailable men.” I’ve never wanted a married man or one that is in a relationship. I acknowledge I have a pattern of falling for men who are emotionally unavailable, physically unavailable in terms of distance, or categorically unavailable with respect to time or where they are in life. For instance, some men know they are not ready for marriage. Perhaps my pattern is that I unconsciously seek rejection or failure with these men, which sadly mimics my mother’s relationship.

Your relationship with your mother is not your fault nor is it in your control.  Maybe you really don’t want to get married and have children.  It makes me wonder with the divorce rates if some people only marry because they feel that they are supposed to as if it would lead to a happy, less lonely life.  I think marriage is for some people but not for all.

Although I have suffered a great deal of pain from my mother, my understanding of my own pathology is a step toward healing. Everyone has a story. Everyone has suffered loss, pain, or rejection on some level. My story of my mother has been written and published for 42 years. My story of having a family of my own is still being written. I have had a series of unfortunate setbacks, but I have faith in knowing that God has a plan for me. My Aunt believes that if a baby is what I want now, then I should focus on that. For me, I will explore all my options as I have someone special in my life. I have learned my lesson about pressuring a man for marriage. With that said, I will continue to work on myself so that I can be the best woman, friend, companion, and mother to my future children… Godspeed.

Well, I hope we can see your growth on the show.  It would be a lot better than what I’ve seen on my screen so far.  Twerking, twirling, singing and complaining about the lies the lawyer has been spouting are not as interesting as seeing someone overcoming their past and moving forward to set up a happy future for themselves.  I’m sure there will be set backs but it shouldn’t take up more than three episodes.

Cynthia Bailey: On the Birds and the Bees

Now please be clear. I don’t pretend to have all the answers on raising children (and outside of taking care of my own that I was in labor with for 16 hours), I say do what works for you and your child. However, I know that this is a controversial subject, and what works for one child does not necessarily work for the other. So I was curious about what the other mothers in the world who are in the same boat with me think, and decided to ask the question on Twitter. I received answers ranging from ages 10-15 years old. This was interesting! In my opinion 10 is too young and 15 is too late. My daughter is 14 years old and is in high school. Guess what? Not only are her peers talking about sex, most of them are already having sex. Regardless of age, no one knows our children better than we do. So with having a child comes the responsibility of making every effort to support, protect, and give them the education they need to make good life choices.

I always feel education is best.  Also showing your child pictures of stds and how to identify them is always a good start.

Bottom line: We had sex growing up, and our children will be no different. I encourage my daughter to feel comfortable coming to me about anything and everything. I am her mother, and that’s what I am here for. So now I ask you guys the same question. What do you think?

Better hearing about sex from you than Noelle hearing it from her friends.

Things You Gotta Know Before Reading Any Further

Warning!  The following opinions expressed on this blog are the from the blogger’s perspective alone and do not necessarily reflect the general opinions of this blog, the owner of the blog, any organization in which it is affiliated, other commenters, or any other living, breathing person. Read at your own risk.  No really… I’m serious… It’s not for the faint of heart.

Another thing you should know is that no one in their right mind travels to Palm Springs in the summer unless they absolutely have to… It’s a lovely place, but it’s the desert and it is way too hot for words. Everyone who lives in Southern California knows that…  Don’t let anyone fool you into thinking that it’s not really THAT hot because it’s a “dry heat.”  It’s hot – period.  They should all know better.  I think Bravo played a huge joke on these women and decided that since this is the season from hell – the women might as well feel like they’re actually living IN hell.

In addition, I believe that Brandi is seriously damaged.  I have my own ideas about what I think it could be – But she is royally screwed up and needs some serious interventions.  I am not joking nor am I excusing her behavior.  In fact, I will be snarking about it very shortly – but she is so far gone that she’s not obviously not listening to any sane people in her life – – Well, that’s assuming there are indeed, sane people in her life.

There were just so many things that assaulted my sensibilities this episode that I decided to arrange the blog comments by offensive category.  In addition, almost everyone’s blog was a novella this week… Everyone was busy over-explaining, rationalizing, blaming, and lobbing digs at everyone else.  So make sure you put on your haz-mat suit… Find some chocolate and your beverage of choice… And just let’s see what the cat dragged in this week, shall we?

When an Apology Isn’t an Apology

All the footage we are seeing now was taken months ago.  People have had plenty of time to think about what they did and why they did it… And yet, most are still unwilling to take responsibility for their part of any casino, dig or disrespectful thing they’ve said to or about each other.  Let’s take Brandi’s feeble attempt at an apology – Brandi blogs, “First and foremost, I really do want to sincerely apologize and say I am truly sorry for the insensitive joke I made about Joyce not getting in the water and to anyone of my friends or fans of the show I offended.”  Okay, this part isn’t too bad… except that I don’t know why she felt she needed to target her apology only towards her friends or fans of the show… I’m neither at this moment (I’m really cranky at this show right now) so I guess her apology doesn’t apply to me.  Also, why isn’t her apology also addressed to Joyce? Joyce certainly isn’t qualified as her friend – Perhaps Joyce is a fan of the show.  But I highly doubt it that at this point of time.

Now if only Brandi had stopped right there… but instead she attempts to weakly defend herself as she blogs, “I generally tend to speak before thinking, which is something I wish I could change about myself. But it has been 41 years now and I don’t really see that happening. I generally feel like the more you protest about something the guiltier one usually looks, but after looking at social media (which is ruining all of our lives BTW) I guess I need to prove myself a little further.”  Brandi, be an adult – and STFU!  It’s easy… Just wait for at least 10 seconds to think before you open your mouth to respond to someone… Practice impulse control… You can do it… You really can… You’re a mother and are supposed to be a role model for your kids.  They are watching everything you do and say.  That concept alone should SCARE you into watching what you do and say – Not to mention you’re on a reality show on national TV and this is all documented for posterity.  And by the way, you haven’t proven yourself at all to me except to be a drunken, irresponsible, childish idiot – too often, in my opinion.

Yolanda explains why she’s defending Brandi as she blogs, “During the first year of my battle with Lyme disease, Brandi was the ONLY person in this group that consistently and genuinely checked up on me, which says a lot about who she is as a person. For that, I love her and will always be grateful. With that said, I cannot control what comes out of Brandi’s mouth and I absolutely in no way, shape or form, condone Brandi’s behavior even though as a woman, I do have empathy for the heartbroken person that she is and feel it is my responsibility as a human being to stay engaged with her and to be a source of support. If I can only give her a glimmer of hope while she is going through her darkness, then that is enough for me. I might be ridiculed for being a friend to Brandi, but I honestly don’t care about fan votes or hate regarding this particular subject on social media. I ONLY care about going to sleep at night knowing I have done good and that I made a difference in someone’s life.”

When you are chronically sick, and someone actually bothered to be there for you during the dark stages of your path – An unbelievably strong bond between the two of you is created.  I think that’s what we’re seeing between Yolanda and Brandi – They’re strange bedfellows to say the least… But this new loyalty makes more sense now, no?

Yolanda explains, “I broke my back giving birth to my son Anwar, lost my husband to infidelities, and battled severe depression all at the same time in 1999, so I know what it is like to be broken and down in a deep, dark hole while trying to keep it together to be a mother and raise children. Life did not give me that experience to now look down on Brandi and judge her for falling in a hole that I was once in.”

Yolanda continues to explain, “I am not just going to drop my friend because she is not making me look very good in front of all of you right now. I will support Brandi to the best of my ability until she comes out of this very difficult time in her life. At this time, I only wish her love, light, and the ability to heal her broken heart.”

I know many of you found fault with her explanation – but it makes some sense to me.  It doesn’t give license to Yolanda to act the way she’s acting… but I’m not about to blame Brandi for Yolanda’s actions and vice versa.

Over the Top

One of the things that many have found especially offensive was that Brandi wore what she described as a “Mary, Mother of Jesus” bathing suit top – Which actually turned out to be a replica of the image of “Our Lady of Guadalupe” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Lady_of_Guadalupe).  Brandi, you said you have over 100 bathing suits, and THIS is the one you chose to wear?  So just in case there were people you hadn’t yet offended, you choose to intentionally offend a huge devout population just to make some sort of shocking statement?  Or perhaps you didn’t know that the shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe is the most visited Catholic pilgrimage destination in the world.  You are so very clueless, it’s actually unbelievable.  In my opinion, the only thing worse than wearing the actual bathing suit top itself, was the back and forth conversation between Brandi and Carlton about the positioning of the image when Brandi wears the bathing suit.  Carlton cavalierly made the comment, “Is she suckling?” when referring to said bathing suit top on Brandi’s breast.  I have no words…

Get in the Pool, Dagnabit!

While the women were all relaxing at the pool, Brandi and Yolanda decide to goad Joyce into actually getting into the pool as if it’s some unwritten rule somewhere that if you’re a host of a pool party you must get into the pool.  Brandi blogs, “So we go to the pool and everyone looks great in full hair and makeup but no one wants to get in the pool, despite the heat.”

Joyce blogs, “… We all decided to go to the pool. After getting drinks for the ladies, I wanted to work on my tan and simply enjoy the beautiful nature when Brandi decided that her “mission” was to get me in the pool. I took off my dress just to support her, because she said she didn’t want to be the only one in a bikini. Then she started calling me Jacqueline, which as I said, is a beautiful name — but it’s not my name. I thought it was an honest mistake from her as by then I’ve known her for a while and she’s always called me by my name. That’s why I corrected her nicely and didn’t take it personal.”

Joyce continues, “She then continued with her peer pressure in her pursuit of getting me into the pool. I was quite shocked when Yolanda joined her as she always tries to act and proclaim that she is a “girl’s girl.” With all due respect, in my book that is NOT the behavior of a girl’s girl. And FYI Yolanda, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never heard that etiquette states that you must do everything your guests want you to do in order to be a good host. I’ve never heard that if you don’t jump into a pool you are considered a bad host, and no, I am not afraid of being without makeup — as we clearly saw in the previous episode.”  Oh, snap! Lol… Yeah, Joyce is equally stunning without makeup… I hate her… Kidding… Not really… lol.

Kyle blogs, “The women chastising Joyce for not getting in the pool was completely absurd.  Why would women at this age care who wants to swim or not? I stayed quiet for a bit, but finally had to say that we are too old for peer pressure. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t leave Joyce alone. Carlton was, of course, quick to scold me that I shouldn’t say peer pressure. I wasn’t quite sure WHAT to call it. It was disgusting. That’s what I was REALLY thinking.”  You’re right… it was disgusting.

Kyle continues, “Yolanda kept saying that she should lead her party and get in the pool. . . Then she said in her interview that she thought Joyce was worried about getting her hair wet or having her makeup run. It seems to me that’s exactly what Yolanda wanted.”   Ding, ding, ding!  You win the prize!

Lisa blogs, “When watching this segment, I didn’t understand the pressure from Yolanda for Joyce to get in the pool just because it was her party. Sometimes there are personal reasons why you would choose not to and who cares?”  Exactly… It should have been enough for Joyce to say she didn’t want to get in – the reason is immaterial.

Yolanda blogs, “Being in the desert where it’s 120 degrees in a bathing suit with nobody wanting to get wet was the most uncomfortable poolside experience I ever had. Kyle and Joyce were talking about skinny dipping that same night in the same pool, so the whole “I can’t swim” excuse was an absolute lie.”

Yolanda, sweetheart, there wasn’t a whole lot of real “swimming” going on in the pool… There was just a lot of standing around talking.  Plus, you don’t have to know how to swim to skinny dip – but I guess you do have to be skinny… lol.  All Joyce was saying was that she was not about to do laps in the pool.  But your condescending, persnickety attitude took something as innocent as, “I don’t want to get into the pool” and “I cannot swim” to a whole new childish level.  Then when you mocked Joyce further by demonstrating to her how to swim – I, proclaimed defender of most things (not all) pertaining to Yolanda, almost threw lemons at your pretentious, snotty little head.

Kim blogs, “Once we got settled in our rooms we headed straight to the pool. Right off the bat it just didn’t feel right, and there was a lot of tension. The push for Joyce to take her sundress off! Look, in my opinion Joyce invited us all down to have a good time and to do whatever we wanted in a beautiful home. She had a chef to prepare nice dinners and planned activities, but the rest should be up to us. If you want to swim, then swim. If you want to take a walk, then take a walk. There should be no rules except to just come have a good time. I have hosted many trips in my life and just because it is my trip, doesn’t mean I have to babysit. For instance, when I took my friends to Hawaii once, some people wanted to lie out while others wanted to shop or go marlin fishing. You can’t be with everyone at the same time. I thought it was a little ridiculous for Yolanda to tell Joyce how to handle herself. I mean grow up!”  You’re right, Kim. Whoa… Have I ever said that before? Lol…

Kim continues, “I started to get anxiety when all the girls pressured Joyce to get in the pool over and over again. I was shocked. I couldn’t believe these were grown women! People laughing and calling names! It felt horrible to even be there! The whole thing just got so ugly and only continued when we got to dinner.”  Why yes, yes it did… unfortunately…

Cuz, the Only Reason You Don’t Swim Must Be Because You’re…

So since Joyce said she doesn’t know how to swim, Brandi brilliantly deduces that she must be “a black person.”  Whoa… what?  Did I hear that right?  Where in the heck did that come from?  In her blog, Brandi tries to convince us that since she has friends from many races and she dates men of all races that clearly she is not racist.  She uses the fact that her children are multiracial as further evidence.  Brandi also tells us that she inappropriately jokes all the time with her black friends.  (Btw… Who categorizes their friends by race?)   Brandi says, “These jokes are clearly not ready for TV.”  Clearly, you’re the one who doesn’t get it, Brandi – That wasn’t a “joke” and it would clearly not have been funny anytime, you ignorant gooberhead!

Brandi blogs, “I am not a racist and I apologize for my insensitive joke. 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.” Brandi, if indeed you regretted what you said right at that moment – Why didn’t you apologize for it at that moment?  Instead, you have a smug look on your face – However, to be fair, we can’t be sure if that was another Bravo “creative edit” or not… As far as your written explanation, why didn’t you stop typing right after you said, “I regretted them…”  Period.  While it may be true that Joyce may crave attention – but so do you.  Isn’t that why you do so much of what you do, Captain Hypocrite?

Brandi writes, “I hope you see that although it didn’t go too well, I was just trying to be funny — as I always try to be. Life is not worth living if you can’t laugh with your close friends. 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.”  Okay, Miss Flip the Script… So it’s everyone else’s fault that you’re inappropriate because they’re just looking for an opportunity to bring you down? Hello!  I am one of the people who really liked you in the beginning and I rode that train for a long time… but I had to jump off because you have long since danced on my last nerve.  You may not be aware of this, but it is quite possible to be funny while not putting other people down.  This may be a big revelation to you… but it’s entirely possible.  Try it… You’ll like it!

Joyce writes, “However, none of the peer pressure was as bad as Brandi’s racial remarks. How dare she put black people in a box!  Puerto Ricans are a mix of African, Spanish, and Indian. My great grandmother was black. So yes, I’m proud to say I’m a mix and very proud of my African lineage as well! But even if I didn’t have it in my blood I would still not tolerate her racial remarks. She stereotypes and labels because I tell her I can’t swim (which I do swim but like a puppy). And FYI, one of the best swimmers in the world is black! He is a gold medalist and his name is Cullen Jones.  It was extremely difficult for me to keep my cool, so I retreated to my room, took a bath and tried to get zen as I was not going to attack Brandi in a place where I invited her. After a bit of meditation I was feeling positive and thought maybe it was just a bad start and that things would look up after the delicious meal the chef was preparing.”

Lisa blogs, “When Brandi made an idiotic remark at the pool, I was incredulous and embarrassed for her. Remarks like that are irresponsible. I do know she is not a racist, but I hope she cringes when she views it and learns to have a modicum of sense and sensitivity to other people’s feelings. I tried to laugh it off, knowing a remark that was so provocative was downright rude to our hostess. It’s particularly poignant this week, as we lay the iconic Nelson Mandela to rest — somebody who paved the way to eradicate ignorance like this.”

Yolanda blogs, “Brandi’s racial comment was uncalled for. The bigger picture here is that sadly nobody wanted to get in the pool because they are so critical of themselves and competing with each other. They don’t want to mess up their hair and makeup and expose who and what they really are.”

OMG, Yolanda – are we being a little dramatic? What’s up with the part, “…expose who and what they really are”… Are you implying that Joyce is a “Gizmo” kind of a furry Mogwai character that when she gets water on herself she immediately turns into a “Gremlin?”  Joyce is a stunning, rich, philanthropic, friendly pageant girl who may act somewhat annoying but up to this point of time has done nothing crazily wrong but incessantly flip her hair.  Sure, she made a mountain out of a molehill with Lisa’s HairGate 2013… but this whole catty jealous thing is not a good look for you, Yolanda.

No, Really – It’s Fun to Call People Names

I found that Brandi’s insistence on calling Joyce “Jacqueline” every chance she got – by her own admission over half of the time just because she found Joyce to be annoying was pretty offensive.  And I’m someone who attaches nicknames to people almost every chance I get.  Joyce politely corrected Brandi the first couple of times, but then set the boundary of not acknowledging Brandi when she continued to insist on calling her “Jacqueline.”  As if that wasn’t enough, Brandi actually insulted the name, “Joyce.”  Saying it sounded like a big fat pig… or a grandma name… or whatever – Brandi is just making friends everywhere, isn’t she?  One of my best friends in the whole wide world is named, “Joyce” and she is one of the kindest and awesomest (Yes, that’s a word cuz I said so… lol) people in the whole entire world.  Yes, I screw with her name too, and call her “Rejoice” sometimes… but I also tell her sincerely, that her name is so appropriate for her because she honestly brings so much “Joy” to the world (Christmas song pun intended). Brandi made some sort of lame dupa comment about how the name “Joyce” didn’t sound Latin enough for her… Right, as if “Jaqueline” sounds oh, so Latin.

Joyce blogs, “’Joyce is a big fat pig’… Seriously? Brandi decides I should be Jacqueline because ‘Joyce is an ugly name that should only be for old or fat pigs.’  Her behavior is so childish that I don’t even know how to comment on that.”  Yeah, neither do I.

Lisa blogs, “At the dinner we see a great example of the indomitable force of Yolanda and Brandi. Brandi incessantly calling Joyce “Jacqueline.”  It was fine as a joke once, but over and over again was taunting her. When the subject of bullying came up it was taking it to a darker place than we needed to go. Just call her Brenda in retaliation and shut her up.”

Kim blogs, “Just seconds later when Brandi called Joyce fat it was amazing to me that Lisa found so much humor in it! Laughing like that? It really felt like them against us! When my sister shook her head in disbelief of all of this, Yolanda asks my sister, “Is there a PROBLEM KYLE?” OMGosh! Really Yolanda? Yes! There is a problem! Then she turns the whole thing back to HER! WOW! This dinner was just no fun! From the pool through dinner it just continued to get worse!”  Yeah, everyone’s behavior was horrible… Lisa, unfortunately at that point, was no different.

Another Dinner Party from Hell… Yippee Cayey!

The comments made throughout dinner were just horrible – No matter the subject.  Brandi blogs, “This dinner wasn’t going to go well from the get-go because half the women still had issues with one another. As I watched Joyce move food around on her plate and pretend to eat, as usual things started to get ugly. Kyle, Yolanda and Kim have their own unresolved issues from before. Although no one really knows what truly happened except the three of them, I blindly defend Yolanda because she had been a great friend to me. In the past, I had been on the other side of Kim and Kyle and it wasn’t fun, although our relationships now are stronger then they have ever been.”  Really, so now we’re attacking Joyce because she doesn’t eat on camera?  Wow… a new low?

Brandi blogs, “Joyce decides to play with her hair for the thousandth time before toasting herself about a show she scored the lead in that her husband just happened to produce. Kyle snaps at Yolanda, Yolanda in return snaps at Kyle, Joyce chimes in and snaps at Yolanda who tells her to stay out of it, I chime in and snap at Kyle. It’s just one giant s—show! Can’t we all just have drink please and maybe go do something fun? Nope!  So more drinks for Brandi! Yes, I overindulged and it wasn’t cute, but can you f—ing blame me!?! Kim, Carlton, and Lisa pretty much stayed out of the fray, which was smart on their part. The dinner party from hell continues next week. Oh Joy! Or should I say “Oh Yoy”?”

I seem to remember another group dinner when a certain person, who shall remain nameless (Brandi), announced she had a book deal… How is this any different?  Brandi, you’re so danged hypocritical.  And btw, Why yes, YES I blame you for overindulging.  It not being “cute” is NOT how I would describe your actions! Are you really admitting you can’t have any fun unless you’re drunk?  GO GET PROFESSIONAL HELP NOW, BRANDI!  How totally adult of you to end this paragraph by saying, “Oh Yoy.”

Carlton blogs, “Oh and the dinner from hell was soooo fun! More labels, this time Joyce uses “bullying” referring to Brandi teasing her with the wrong name. This is bloody exhausting! If as adults we constantly reverted back to childhood memories of bad name calling we’d never get out of bed! These adults and their diluted labels. Oh and yes there was that wonderful welcoming toast as host to her dinner… I mean Joyce toasting herself. . . Crickets! God this is an evening that will not DIE!”

Kyle blogs, “I felt like “Brandi, Lisa, Yolanda and Carlton” versus “Kim, Kyle, and Joyce.” Lisa trying to reprimand Joyce for telling Brandi she was bullied in school made no sense. Joyce didn’t say she was bullied by THEM. She said she was bullied in school. Lisa wanted to distance herself from Brandi’s behavior, but continued to encourage her by laughing. Lisa was clearly agitated with us and wanted to dismiss everything we were saying.”

Kyle continues, “Of course when Joyce wanted to chime in, Yolanda snapped at her. Saying “Joyce sweetheart, don’t get involved” was beyond rude. Joyce was our host. How Yolanda can sit there and say she’s a “girl’s girl” is ridiculous with the way she is treating some of the girls here. Yolanda thinks she is better than everyone and likes to speak to everyone in a condescending tone. I felt bad for Joyce and could see this night was only getting worse.”

Lisa blogs, “I believe I was wrong in not standing up to Brandi and her drunken rants against Joyce. Most of Brandi’s barbs were, quite frankly, ridiculous. I don’t think Joyce for one minute needs to worry about resembling “a big fat pig!” It was a tenuous situation as I said, with Yolanda and Kyle once again disagreeing over whether she had spoken negatively behind my back — which you can decide as the viewer as we delve deeper into the relationships.”  I’m so glad that Lisa acknowledged that she should have acted differently.

Lisa continues, “Joyce at that point was not somebody I was particularly fond of. I felt she had endeavored to create a problem over HairGate but as I explained in an earlier blog, what she was doing was trying to enlighten me that my friends were less than loyal… I chose to ignore her which was ultimately my downfall. Had I listened, I would’ve been more prepared for what was about to ensue in the upcoming weeks. I have since apologized to her, for sitting there and not coming to her defense.”  Wait, you actually apologized TO Joyce… What a concept!  Yolanda, Carlton and Brandi could learn much from you, Yoda.

Yolanda blogs, “The interaction between all seven of us at the dinner table was an absolute insult to the intelligence of women. Seeing a two-hour dinner condensed down to five minutes just makes things even worse. In my own defense, even if it did not look like it, I will and have always been supportive of celebrating women and their success. I definitely showed interest in Joyce’s new show Siberia and even tweeted about it.” 

Kim blogs, “I thought it was important for Joyce to express her feelings when she said she was bullied as a child AND it infuriated me that Lisa and Yolanda didn’t want to allow her to express herself! Especially at her own dinner! I am sick of Lisa not being fair to people! I’m used to her rude treatment of me, but seeing her behavior toward Joyce, just made me sick! She completely dismissed Joyce and totally disregarded me (as usual) when I was trying to acknowledge Joyce’s feelings.”  Yeah, Lisa’s dismissive superior attitude really reared its’ ugly snobby little head, didn’t it?

Baby, I Love You – Now Let Me Choke You

While talking with her 3 close friends, Brandi presented “choking” as a routine sexual activity she engages in when she wants to bring an end to the sexual act and she seems to encourage her friends to do so, too.  Right, because most people want to suffocate the person with whom they’ve just been intimate.  I understand that it’s supposed give you some sort of idiotic high whether a partner is involved or not – As if having an orgasm just wasn’t enough.  I’m not sure if it’s a fetish… Or perhaps it’s considered “sexual masochism” or “erotic asphyxiation” under the category of “sexual deviance?” Wait, why am I even trying to put a label on it – it’s DANGEROUS… PEOPLE DIE FROM THIS!  Just ask David Carradine (Kung Fu) or Michael Hutchence (Lead singer for INXS)… Oh wait, you can’t… They’re dead allegedly because they too, experimented with this.  It was crazily irresponsible that Bravo included this subject in the episode at all.  Can you imagine how many people could start to experiment with it?   What if something happens to them?  Is Bravo culpable?  Maybe, maybe not – but at the very least they’re reprehensible idiots.  Seriously.

Lisa blogs, “It’s hard to understand this constant need to shock. Her admission of indulging in cocaine, nudity, of being choked? Calling yourself a whore? What message does that send?  One must remember that what we see will forever be documented. Provocative statements. Like you, I am witnessing for the first time, as obviously we have no knowledge of what has been shot. But with all that I have seen since, being called a bully by paparazzi in front of my children would rate pretty low on the totem pole.” Tru dat.  Wow… Was this Lisa actually defending Kyle in a roundabout way?  Whoa… I think my head just exploded.

Yolanda blogs, “Brandi has been working really hard to support Jake and Mason as a single mom, and I am really happy she has a new book deal and other great opportunities coming her way. Her sex advice is to the point, and I believe she says out loud what most women think but do not dare say.”  You’re wrong, Yolanda on a couple of points.  While technically Brandi is single… and is a mom… but she only has custody of her kids 50% of the time and their father is actively in their lives.  To me, when people talk about being a “single parent” it’s more than just being a “divorced parent.”  It conjures up thoughts about one parent having to do the job of both parents 100% of the time without any help from the other parent or because the other parent is AWOL. You’re also wrong, Yolanda, because Brandi does not speak things that I’m thinking but I’m afraid to say.  I think we’ve heard Brandi also try to sell us this brand of bologna – that she’s only saying things we don’t have the nerve to say.  Let the record reflect, that contrary to popular belief, Brandi does not speak for womankind.

Carlton Crosses the Line

Carlton’s “F*** You” tattoo emblazoned on a cross was offensive to me.  Wow… Are we supposed to think Carlton’s a badass?  Carlton, honey, you’re trying way too hard.  We all know the cross is a sacred religious symbol representing Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.  I personally find that tattoo to be very offensive – but almost nothing shocks me coming from Carlton.  It is not surprising that she takes religious symbols and intentionally desecrates them.  Another example is that she has an actual Catholic Confessional in her home in her bar area – and with a wink and a smile laughs at what has been done in the confessional.  But just don’t ask her if she was raised Catholic or if she has ever experimented with witchcraft… Cuz THAT’S what will make her go off the deep end, right Kyle?

It’s also weird to me that Carlton named her child “Cross” and STILL proudly wears this tattoo… That’s just a new kind of messed up.  Honestly, it could really be misinterpreted all over the place, no?  Plus, it’s not even a good tattoo to begin with – Perhaps she needs to take a visit to the show, “Bad Ink.” Maybe they can tattoo over it and turn it into a cute little bee or something.

Carlton proudly wearing this cross tattoo also seems to me to be very inconsistent with her Wiccan belief system – not that we all aren’t hypocrites in one way or another.  The Wiccan “Threefold Law,” is described as the belief that whatever a person wishes on someone else returns to them three times over (“Wiccan Spirituality, Green Magic, 2002).  So in essence, Carlton’s literally screwed…  And not in the good kinda way.

Carlton blogs, “Which leads me to being asked about my faith in the pool. . .Fan-f—ing-Tastic! Nothing like being put on the spot. I was surprised that Kyle seemed to notice the little one on my foot, which is of a pentagram. I am incredibly hesitant to talk to a couple of these girls about what I believe in. I’m certainly not seeking their approval, as they don’t need mine for their religious choices either — which is the obvious reason why one shouldn’t discuss religion or politics. However I am urged to. Up until this journey of RHOBH, I never discussed my faith with strangers, and only my inner circle knew of my beliefs. This is largely due to my experience growing up and constantly having to defend it because people feared or didn’t understand it.”

Carlton blogs, “Oh and then there’s Joyce with her clueless quote “I have a god that is so much more powerful than any witch in the world.” Wow! You have just insulted and dismissed an organized religion where by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world are practicing Pagans and Wiccans. A religion that is recognized in the United States Military. This is by the far one of the most ignorant and prejudice statements I’ve ever heard from someone I unfortunately know. Sadly there will always be religious bigotry and intolerance. But you Miss Puerto Rico should know better. Sometimes you just can’t educate ignorance. Shockingly disrespectful by someone who just recklessly threw out the race card.”

Joyce blogs, “One thing I HAVE to clarify is that when Carlton was talking about her Wiccan beliefs in the pool, I was very respectful and supportive because I firmly believe that we must all respect every religion and that we can all be happy and believe in whatever we want to believe as long as we respect each other. When I said, “That’s silly, I have a God that is more powerful than any witch in the world,” I was referring to Kim saying she was scared of the Wiccan and Witchcraft stuff, so I thought it was silly for her to be scared. That being said, I can proudly say that I am a Christian, and I believe in Jesus Christ! And I can yell it out to the world! My God is so powerful that he will protect me against any negativity!”

Yolanda blogs, “I found the conversation regarding Carton’s religion stimulating and informative. It’s because of people who seem to think their God is much more powerful than others that we have so many wars in this world. Being raised by a Catholic father, a Protestant mother, and marrying the Muslim father of my three children, I encourage people to respect and at least try to understand different religions.”

Stop the Presses!!  Kyle and Carlton are not BFFs

The way that Carlton rolled her eyes behind Kyle’s back when they were shopping was offensive to me.   Then, Miss Offensive America has the audacity to read a laundry list of Kyle’s “offensive” comments as if Carlton was perfect in every way.  However, I do appreciate her talking to Kyle’s face about it though, rather than behind her back.  I think up to this point we’ve only seen Carlton’s snarky talking head interviews – I can’t remember if we’ve seen her be catty behind Kyle’s back yet or not.  Of the situation, Carlton writes, “Kyle said that she wished the other girls had done this — as maybe there wouldn’t be so many problems. And just as I think this really uncomfortable and awkward meeting may work out positively — then right in mid-sentence again, she turns on her heels or flats and walks away! Brilliant. Oh Kylie, you say “t–s on an ant,” I say you’re a rude t—ed ant.”

Carlton blogs, “Oh and the “So overwhelmed that day, had no help, didn’t have a babysitter” that’s f—-ing hysterical. . .Hello food delivery for four, saw no child, and we set up your table! Nope just rude. At some point you just have to say “F— it, I give up.” She just can’t help herself, she’s passive aggressive, prejudiced, and still offensive, no matter how hard I’ve tried to like her. . .Oh well No Team Kyle for me, packing away me pom poms.”  Lol… Sorry, this part just really had me laughing… Carlton and pom poms… Just makes me laugh for some reason… lol.

Kyle bogs, “I have never met someone like Carlton that was so quick to judge and easy to anger. I had heard the Mexican expression, “looking for tits on an ant” from my father-in-law, Eduardo, years ago. I had never used the expression until I met Carlton. She just wants so badly to dislike me. In watching the show, I feel foolish for even making an effort with her.” 

Yolanda blogs, “Kyle and Carlton have been like oil and water since the day they met. I would like to point out to you that Kyle is always referring to TEAMS and Carlton is just not buying it and trying to get a fresh start from a fresh start. The Lakers and the Clippers teams play against each other, friends shouldn’t. Kyle has obviously burned her bridges with everyone in this group, and since Taylor and Faye Resnick left, she has made it her mission to enlist Joyce to be her next, new soldier.”

The following paragraph explains why Yolanda has chosen Team Carlton and not Team Joyce as she continues to blog, “I would like to take you back in time so you understand the circumstances of when this story took place. The first time I met Carlton and Joyce at Kyle’s party, I gave them both my phone number and invited them to lunch, even though I was still spending most of my days in bed battling Lyme disease. I felt like I needed to make an effort and make them both feel welcome in the group. Carlton and I saw each other that same week, but Joyce and I never had one on one time before our Palm Springs trip. Seeing today’s episode, she clearly drank the Richards sisters’ Kool-Aid.”

Kim blogs, “Seeing Kyle and Carlton. . .that looked rough! When my sister walked in to store and the lady told how great her butt looked she looked so embarrassed. (It did look good though.) However, she didn’t want her to point it out. I know she and Carlton have their differences, but at this point looks to me Kyle was unaware of this! I have no problem and even like Carlton, but I feel like her comments and faces behind my sisters back were not needed.”   Yeppers, you’re right.  Wow… Kim seems like the sane one of the bunch. Who knew? Lol.

Kiss and Tell… and Tell Again… No, I don’t Get it – Please Demonstrate

The funniest thing to me wasn’t actually something that offended me… but it was intended to offend or shock me – and it was about the big revelation to the group of Brandi and Carlton’s kiss.  It’s funny, because it was Brandi’s ace in the hole… She wanted to shock us… but in light of everything else that happened… who really cares?

Brandi blogs, “Carlton and I get in the water and I am bored as hell, so I decide to share with the ladies about our innocent friendship kiss. It was mostly just to get a rise out of the other women, and a few of them were rather shocked. So I felt my job had been done.”   Okay, first of all – You guys had JUST gotten there – You’re in the pool with your new best friend and you’re already bored?  You’re in a pool… Swim!  Talk!  Splash the others!  Pools are fun!  But alas, poor widdle Brandi was bored… What does that say about you, Brandi? Oh wait, you weren’t having any fun because you weren’t naked wasted drunk yet, right?  So you admit to wanting to get a rise out of the other women – Which is why you shared with them about kissing Carlton.  It would have been funny, if it wasn’t just so danged pathetic.

Carlton blogs, “Oh and yes the kiss — rather yummy, but oh please, moving on.”   Yeah, I think Carlton wants more… But that’s a whole nuther Oprah.

Lisa blogs, “Brandi brings up the kiss. That again was a complete violation of an intimate moment that had no need to be shared. However when we enter this public domain, take heed. You do so at your own risk!”

Kim blogs, “Then a second later Brandi blurted out that they madeout. Ummm. Well now I’m really curious?!? Tell me more! Then they did a little sample. WOW! OK! But nothing surprises me too much when it comes to Brandi!”

There were so many other items from the blogs that we could have covered but this is already so danged long I didn’t want to completely bore you to death… lol… Like Kim’s creative use of toothbrushes… Yolanda’s ironed sheet fetish (Whoa, I used the word “fetish” twice in the same blog… yikes!)… Brandi saying that if a man didn’t know a certain 2-finger maneuver that she would break up with him… The concept that Brandi views herself as a comedian… That Brandi inexplicably ended her blog with the word, “Deuces”…  Joyce’s recognition that Kyle was being a true friend to her by sticking up for her during dinner… and Lisa’s slow revelation as she witnessed the nastiness that was transpiring in this group…

So many things to cover…  So little time.  However, in true Bravo tradition, this week we can look forward to some more footage of the dinner from hell… Lucky us!  Hope to see you next week!  Happy trails!

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s been a great weekend. I hope you enjoyed yours. There are a few winter finales on tonight. They are going to be good. I think Atl is going to be good tonight. Explosive w/Kandi.
    Very classy of Karent and Joanna to give the finger in that pic.
    Enjoy today.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Good afternoon! I’m glad you’re having a great weekend! Yes, very klassy of those two. Joanna, I can easily see doing that. But Karent? I was surprised.

  2. Powell says:

    Last season Brandi told Adrienne and Paul it wasn’t cool to try to ruin her, cost her a paycheck. Well she’s doing just fine by herself losing jobs.

  3. BB says:

    Thanks to both RamonaCoaster and Stars for recapping the blogs. Having to make your way through the RHOBH blogs must have been torturous for you Stars! I’m glad I didn’t have to do it. lol.

    • Stars99 says:

      “It’s torture!”… lol… Yeah, this week was tough because the episode was so bad… so their blogs were tough to get through without going crazy. Fortunately, I’m already crazy.

      • VV™ says:

        You did excellent Startzy! EXCELLENT! Always manage to make me laugh. Once again May the Force Be with You for the rest of the season.

        • Stars99 says:

          Thanks, VV… It’s always great to make someone laugh… lol… May the Force Be With You, too! =)

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Agreed, thanks Ramona Coaster and Stars. Great job. Ramona, loved your bog and comments. Nene’s whole thinly veiled attack on Phaedra’s character (or her past) reeks of desperation for relevance. I like Nene, so I found it to be disappointing. It’s my year of feeling disappointed in my faves (Brandi, Yo and maybe now Nene?). You asked or wondered why Kenya mentioned the 7 proposals….maybe Kenya bringing up the seven proposals speaks to her unresolved feelings of maternal abandonment which shows her feelings of being undeserving of someone actually wanting to make a commitment to love her, whereas she is more accepting of the men who clearly do not wish to make a commitment to her. It’s what she knows.

      Stars, wow…lots of ground to cover. You did great!!! I agree with Some of your take on Yolanda’s blog especially in regards to her loyalty to Brandi. The friendship and loyalty between them, I totally get. But like you, I don’t think it excuses her nasty behavior toward others. I do think she made lots of excuses for Brandi in her blog…while not agreeing with Brandi’s behavior she does present a case for compassion from others because of all that Brandi has endured. So, to me it’s excuses! Others focus more on her loyalty to a friend. She is being a true friend. So can both things be true. She demonstrated true friendship while also asking us to excuse her friend? This true friend who gossiped to the Miami group about Yo’s marriage/divorce (the whole Joanna thing) and it ended up being shouted from the mountain tops. Yo will forgive a friend anything, apparently. I wonder if she regrets trusting Brandi, yet. Interestingly, Yo (in her blog) does not issue an apology nor much of an acknowledgement for her own contribution to the nastiness in that episode. I’ve always liked her and her whole lemon world so much, so I’m disappointed in her most recent on air behavior. All is not lost, as there are many things I still like about her.

      Lisa is writing her blog from the most interesting perspective. She really thought she was IN with Brandi. She thought she was safe with Brandi in that episode…and now she’s watching and writing her blog with the knowledge that all is NOT WELL with Brandi. brandi is NOT her friend, but lisa didn’t know that back then. She probably feels so foolish now, watching herself not standing up for the hostess and laughing about Brandi’s boorish and taunting behavior.

      • Stars99 says:

        Thanks LaineyLainey so nice we say it twice – Yeah, isn’t it interesting to try to figure these women out? We have the episode, the talking heads that were filmed later… and now the blogs in real time… I’m glad we can all just gab about our perspectives and agree to disagree when we disagree… I know I’d be horrible on one of these shows… can you imagine the trouble I’d be in… And you all would be pointing and laughing at me, too… and rightly so! lolol… ohholynightthestarsarebrightlyshining… lololol….

  4. joyce giraud ‏@joycegiraud 16m
    I HAVE NEVER met @leannrimes I’m not saying I have anything against her but we’ve never met. @BrandiGlanville stop lying!&STOPPLAYINGVICTIM

    • TexasTart says:

      Ooooh, BAM!

    • Cartwheels says:

      Brandi as usual resorting to her comfort zone, so now anybody who she has a problem with must be because they are friends with Leann, she can’t possibly imagine that somebody doesn’t like her for the classless and trashy way she acts.
      Sad, looking for excuses instead of looking in the mirror.

    • JustDee says:

      Where did this Leann stuff come from? I looked at Joyce, Brandi, and Leann’s timelines and the first mention of Leann I can find is in Joyce’s tweet. (I’m not twitter literate so I could have missed it).

  5. TexasTart says:

    Thanks NMD for the sweet revenge … considering how much I loathe Joanna, well, it makes her just all the perfect ‘match’ for Brandi.

    Ramonacoaster and Stars – thank you, I enjoy reading you both! 😀

  6. LeAnn Rimes Cibrian ‏@leannrimes 6m
    @joycegiraud @BrandiGlanville we have never met. Not getting involved, just speaking the truth. Happy Sunday to all.

    • Powell says:

      But Brandi is supposedly moving in the right direction w/Eddie & she continues this crap.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Eddie and Leann will always be there to be the punching bags. I am not saying that what they did was right , Eddie was a pig, but Brandi is just resorting to this as a way to garner support from her followers who seem to have this unhealthy fixation with this love triangle.

  7. Powell says:

    If Brandi is truly a friend to Yo then, that’s good and I don’t recall anyone saying Yo should drop her. I believe and I think many her also think that Yo needs to support Brandi but also call her out when she’s wrong. That’s what true friends do. They call each other out on their sh*t.

    • VV™ says:

      Lisa used to call her for her behavior on and off the show. Yolanda told Lisa to let Brandi be Brandi ( paraphrasing ). Brandi and Yolanda are besties but Yofo never calls B out that I have seen or read.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Lisa IMO pretended to call her bad behavior but she used to do exactly what Yolanda is doing, she made excuses and defended her bad behavior all the time while they were friends.

        • Brandi is their lapdog. They know she will say what she’s thinking no matter how stupid it is, and will say what They are thinking.

          • Cartwheels says:

            True, the scene between Lisa and Yolanda lying on the bed and Lisa saying that she wants Brandi to fetch some tea for her was very telling. Yolanda is right there, why doesn’t she asked her? Lisa and Yolanda have never seen Brandi as “one of them” , that is very obvious.

        • VV™ says:

          Lisa already apologized for that. How many more apologies are needed? They were friends for less than two years. If a Kyle has forgiven Brandi for her atrocious behavior towards Her and Brandi has forgiven Kyle for her atrocious behavior towards Lisa. Why can some people forgive Lisa? AND It wasn’t as if whatever Lisa did was if equal cruel value.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I wonder why Brandi started the whole Joanna/Mohamed gossip if she and Yo are biffles? That was a clear attack on the The father of Yo’s kids. Yo is very, very, very forgiving.

      • Cartwheels says:

        IMO the only reason why Yolanda forgave Brandi on that one is because she wanted it out there but didn’t want to be the one telling. Maybe Yolanda has heard rumors of Johanna crossing to RHBH and she was just too displeased to let it go quietly so Brandi’s mouth came in very handy.

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

        Biffles is my new fave word!!! #BIFFLES

  8. VV™ says:

    Here we go again. As a new episode of RHOBH approaches, Kyle starts to tweet, retweet and reply “the victim” tweets. It’s a formula she’s been using since the season started. Is not working Kyle. Save face before it’s too late. You’re too damn stubborn but this is the wrong path to take. A good chess player doesn’t telegraph their moves ahead of time. We already know your strategy. To quote Yolanda “get wise.

    @KyleRichards18: @mkathalene thank you. Appreciate that XO

    Original Message:

  9. VV™ says:

    Brandi’s agent is still on LA time. I’m sure once he awakes her Twitter will be silent.

  10. Cartwheels says:

    It is funny to me how Yolanda implies in her blog that the reason why viewers are critical of her is only because of Brandi’s behavior hence the “I cannot control what comes out of Brandi’s mouth and I absolutely in no way, shape or form, condone Brandi’s behavior even though as a woman, I do have empathy for the heartbroken person that she is and feel it is my responsibility as a human being to stay engaged with her and to be a source of support”

    In my case I dislike Yolanda not because of her friendship with Brandi, I dislike Yolanda for her hypocrisy and her double standards. I dislike Yolanda because she pretended to be Lisa’s BFF while talking crap behind her back. I dislike Yolanda because she actually believes, behaves, and talks like she is so above these other ladies when she is just one of them. I dislike Yolanda for how she acts and not for her friendship with Brandi.

    BTW it didn’t get lost on me the slam in her blog against Lisa when she mentioned that Brandi was the ONLY one who checked on her during not filming season. Maybe Yolanda needs to consider that Brandi doesn’t work and has a lot of free time when the kids are with Eddie and Leann, Lisa works, was rehearsing for her routines and probably filming VR.

    IMO Yolanda is a little bit of a hypochondriac, not dismissing the effects of her disease, but I also happen to think she is very needy and she always want support and someone “checking on her”, being that king David was probably too busy to do it, she appreciated Brandi doing it. I do hope the friendship between these two is honest and sincere, they deserve each other and obviously share the same double standards so maybe they actually have forged a real friendship in this sea of fakeness and backstabbing.

    • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

      I’m calling complete bullshit on Yolanda’s bullshit explanation of Brandi’s bullshit excuses.

      Eddie did not turn into a cheater overnight. I think Brandi was so desperate to marry an actor (she probably did love him) that she kept letting his indiscretions go. She can’t play the victim now if he was like this all along.

      • Cartwheels says:

        It also annoys me when Yolanda compares her situation with Brandi. I dislike Brandi profoundly and in no way would I want to defend her, but Yolanda can’t compare her situation with hers.
        Yolanda retired to live her life in Montecito (one of the wealthiest counties in the country) in a huge mansion with hired help, a nanny and all the luxuries money can buy, there was no press involved and the details of the separation were not on every media or gossip rag. She was dating David within a year of being separated and while still being legally married and she was fighting the prenup. She didn’t have to work, she could afford to focus on her children and repair her wounded ego.
        Brandi was broke and due to the nature of the affair, the media frenzy and all of that.
        For Yolanda to even try to pretend that their situations were similar just tells me that one way or another Yolanda is the kind of person who always tries to make it about her.

  11. Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

    Trash. Just trash. What a trashy episode. Stars, we need to pitch in and get you a bath set to wash off these blogs.

  12. Cartwheels says:

    Lisa, Lisa, Lisa ……. her blog was lovely but the bottom line is that when it mattered the most she was right there with Brandi, Yolanda and Carlton laughing at Brandi’s stupid jokes. I am 100% sure that if she didn’t have the fall out with Brandi and Yolanda she will also be making all kind of excuses and trying to convince us that Brandi is a lovely albeit rough around the edges kind of person.
    One can argue that her laugh was a nervous laugh, but there are many things that suggest to me that this was not the case, Lisa doesn’t want to talk about teams but she sits at the pool and when Yolanda leaves her to go in, Lisa says “are you going to leave alone?” while Kyle, Kim and Joyce are right next to her was very telling.
    Lisa says to Brandi , “oh, Brandi, don’t say that” but she is laughing right along, she can always say “well I call Brandi on her crap all the time” but Lisa, there is a big difference, you were not really calling Brandi on any crap, you were doing your little condescending routine that would still allow you to look regal while having a good time. Basically being thoroughly amused by Brandi’s antics against people you don’t like but keeping your hands clean. It doesn’t surprise me as this seems to be Lisa’s MO anyway. Just don’t go about blogging about how mortified you were by Brandi’s comments and how you were horrified by what was happening when your face on screen clearly shows that you were enjoying it all along with the other harpies.
    Months later after the incident, months after your fall out with Brandi and Yolanda, months later when the viewers backlash is so strong, it is easy to try to save face with a lovely written blog, but the say has never been truer “ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS”

    • another hairy kardashian sister says:

      but hindsights a wonderful thing and with this show you dont see the bigger picture untll much later. So perspectives change. This is not unusual. All the women on these shows do what Lisa is doing and alter their feelings when they see things back on the show. You have to understand tat at the actual time of filming they are in a different mindset; Yolanda and Brandi were considered to be Lisa’s allies at that time so obviously she was gonna side with them at that point. Plus she has said that she didnt know Joyce back then and was suspicious of her motives especially with the hair drama she was trying to whip up. Since then she’s gotten to know Joyce more and theyre fine. At the end of the day all these relationships on these shows keep switching and turning and their viewpoints are gonna change accordingly. Thats just how life works. When you consider somebody a friedn you do try to put a positive spin on their bad behaviour. None of our friends are perfect. Lisa always said she didnt agree with stuff Brandi did last season. She made Brandi apologize once at the dinner table early on in S3 for swearing at Maloof. But as she was also her friend she had her back also. But since then theyve fallen out and each thiks the other backstabbed them. Friendships on Bravo are very tenuous as we all know they mostly dont have real depth or loyalty. Often women team up cuz it suits their storyline. Sad but true.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Perspective is everything but rewriting history is not.
        Here it is Lisa at the table laughing whole heartedly when Brandi said to Joyce “go F%$k yourself”, but now in her blog she wants us to believe that she was horrified, that this is the night when she changed her views on Brandi?
        Really? It sure doesn’t seem like that to me. Lisa was a full blown member of the Lisa, Brandi, Yolanda, Carlton’s team and she now has some “perspective” only because Brandi turned on her and she needs to distance herself and look like the bigger person.
        That of course is just MO.

        • Katie (aka kats2) says:

          I totally agree with your opinion and love reading all your comments!

          • Cartwheels says:

            Thanks, I know my opinion of Lisa is not very popular but neither were my comments on Brandi last season and we all know how that turned out to be.
            Believe me there is nothing that I would love most that Lisa proving me wrong because I did like her so much and at some point she was my favorite Bravo HW, but in order to do so she is going to have to be real and stop the false pretense that we are not watching what we are actually watching.
            I hate when these women think we viewers are either blind or stupid.

            • kit9 says:

              I honestly think the only reason Lisa offered any type of apology at all was just the opportunity to make a dig at new enemy, Brandi. “I apologize for not stopping that horrible awful woman Brandi’s horrible awful behavior” But apologize for her OWN behavior? Not so much.

        • VV™ says:

          And so was Kyle recently in WWHL laughing at the sane scenes that you are criticizing Lisa for laughing. The difference is Kyle and Brandi are friends now. So, Kyle is cutting her some slack. It is that simple.
          Lisa is not rewriting history, she apologized.
          That dinner table scene was two hours long if filming. Bravi edited to 10 minutes. 120 min down to 10 minutes! That tells me a lot!

          • Cartwheels says:

            Kyle and Brandi are not friends, they are friendly.
            Brandi and Lisa were friends, besties as they liked to call themselves. They went out together, they had dates when filming was not happening, they braids each others’ hair.

            This are Brandi’s own words about her situation with Kyle.
            http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/12/brandi-glanville-eddie-cibrian-affair-leann-rimes-did-not-hold-it-together-hubby-cheated/
            “I think she’s a good person. It took us a long time to be friendly. I don’t agree with all the ways she goes about handling things, but ultimately, I do like her now. We’re not like best friends, but we’re trying to get along right now.”

            Trying to get along and not fight is hardly the definition of best friends.

            • VV™ says:

              Double standard here. Now Lisa and Kyle were BFF BUT Kyle and Kim I might add are not BFF with Brandi. Tsk tsk tsk. Even Kim ( the voice of reasons for some class Brandi BFF) Those are Kim’s words not mine.

          • kit9 says:

            There are huge differences as I’ve pointed out before between Lisa laughing hysterically in Joyce’s face, actively participating in tormenting and ridiculing her and Kyle laughing 8 months later at a montage of Brandi’s greatest and most obnoxious hits from that night. That’s what those montages are meant to do–shine a spotlight on how absurd it all is, grown women acting like that and in Brandi’s case, the shear absurdity of using the words ‘fat and pig’ in the same sentence as Joyce, a gorgeous woman. Joyce, herself, would laugh watching that montage now! Kyle wasn’t egging on Joyce’s tormentor and delighting in her ridicule, which is what Lisa was doing.

            • VV™ says:

              I didn’t see Lisa laughing histerically. She was not. I saw her cracking up then Bravo quickly cut the scene. A scene that was filmed for two hours and we only saw 10 minutes.

              • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

                She wasn’t. She wasn’t even laughing at Joyce. She was laughing because she couldn’t believe Brandi was saying what she was saying.

        • kit9 says:

          You nail what was so disgusting about Lisa’s blog. She acts like it was the Brandi and Yolanda show! Like she wasn’t even there. Like she wasn’t actively participating. And, Lisa is so freaking manipulative in everything, even her bullsh*t half as*ed apology. She says she should have tried to stopped Brandi awful drunken behavior. But, Lisa NEVER actually apologizes for her own awful behavior! Like, you know, completely enabling and egging on Brandi. Little things like that. Lisa was the first person to jump in and chastise Joyce and defend Brandi’s honor over the nonexistent bully comment. And, Lisa continued to make fun of Joyce much later in her TH with her Siberia comment.

          • VV™ says:

            Joyce didn’t say anything about Lisa after the scene aired or on her blog because perhaps on the other 110 minutes of this scene things transpired that made Joyce realize Lisa was not the trouble maker. It is obvious that Joyce was annoyed at Yolanda and Brsndi only. Very obvious for those who want to see it.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I know you want people to see that Lisa was a big part of the drama in that episode, but these are Brandi’s words. “Kim, Carlton, and Lisa pretty much stayed out of the fray, which was smart on their part”. I realize Lisa is not pure as the driven snow, but this past episode doesn’t really show that. And even Brandi states that Lisa stayed out of the fray.

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

              I wouldn’t say that Lisa was a big part of the drama but I will say that if Lisa and Brandi didn’t have this THING going on that Lisa wouldn’t be so anti Brandi today. I get that Lisa feels foolish for supporting Brandi last year because she now sees Brandi differently-my thing with Lisa is this-Brandi is the same exact person she was last year-same exact-where was Lisa’s shock and disappointment then? She didn’t mind that Brandi was outlandish when it worked in her favor but now that they had their “falling out” things are different. The same immature behavior is now frowned upon and called out. Last season Lisa made a few half hearted attempts to tell Brandi not to say this or that but mostly she laughed and got a kick out of dumb Brandi. Idk-it’s just funny and annoying to me-BUT I will say I’m happy that Lisa has seen Brandi for who she is and decided that her behavior is in fact DUMB!!! (Even if those are not her exact words!!!)

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Is that a DIG at me for quoting Brandi?

              • VV™ says:

                I see it as Lisa being loyal to Brandi the only person that didn’t bash her at reunion S2. I see it as Lisa being loyal to the person that told her there was a meeting to coordinate a tracks on Lisa at reunion S2.
                If you didn’t see the attacks on Lisa during reunion S2, you need to watch again because they were there. All of them attacking her and nobody defending her to the point that brought Lisa tears to her eyes.

                • VV™ says:

                  a tracks = attacks

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

                  I watched the reunion more than once-I don’t think this attack on Lisa was as bad as you think it is. Kyle said the Bobby Fisher thing and I can’t help but agree-Lisa is a calculating person-she’s savvy and smart and she knows the score. I don’t feel that Lisa was just gone after for no reason-something went on-something happened between her and Kyle that we didn’t see-Kyle has said it many times but she hasn’t said what happened-Lisa has never to my knowledge denied this. As for Brandi defending Lisa-well that was smart of the dummy now wasn’t it? Look where it got her. Was it true what she said to Lisa? I don’t think so but it doesn’t matter-Brandi benefitted from the friendship-in many ways. I don’t think she went to Lisa with the secret meeting thing out of the goodness of her heart-she did it to divide…it worked. And now it doesn’t…not in her favor anyway.

                  • VV™ says:

                    After the attacks on reunion S2. Lisa’s blog broke the record of posting over 2000 comments the big majority in support. It made news on Bravo and Lisa also tweeted about it. It was a record. So, a lot of people noticed.

    Oh Brandi. lol… I don’t think she is racist — just completely ignorant in managing her personal PR or listening to those who should be managing it.

    She is attempting to still ride ride a wave of sympathy that has long since dissipated. Good luck Brandi you’ll need a lot of it.

  16. Thank you all for recapping the excuses this week.

    I said here in a post to Brandi the other day. What goes around, comes around. Around is here.

    Stars, your head must be about to go Supernova by now having to sift through this shit. I tried to read Brandi’s when it was posted over at FB but only made it half way though before I couldn’t take anymore. All of these arguments were completely ridiculous. From all of them. I am glad I have a mute button on my remote or my brain would melt and ooze out of my ears after exposing myself to the stupidity of it all.

    I don’t see what the big deal regarding the pic of the guy is. She posted a photo and then immediately clarified that it wasn’t a hookup and he played for another team. So I take her pic for what it is, a joke.

  23. Katie (aka kats2) says:

    Patti ‏@Bravolebrity1 I believe a fan of Brandi’s is taking ownership of asking or implying if Joyce knew Leann and sparked that tweet that Joyce sent out today. So in this case it was not Brandi playing the Leann card.

  24. Katie (aka kats2) says:

    Never liked Lisa or Brandi’s personalities. I’m not sure they were ever really close real friends or just HW friends. They did use each other to help with Bravo shows. Brandi needed Lisa for HW’s getting close to the main HW in a franchise is never a bad thing and Lisa needed and used Brandi to kick off her Vanderpump crapfest show. People tuned in to that first episode because of the Brandi confrontation with the waitress cheater in the first episode. Yolanda is very disappointing this season. I’m sure Lymes does not help with filming at all maybe she should have sat this season out or went part-time this season and just focused on health and actually living up to the high standards she sets for everyone else.

    • I googled it – in mid-October there was some rumors that Joyce was friends with LeAnn as well.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I just love how Yolanda tries to pin her nasty attitude and her disdain for the ladies on her Lyme disease. I would believe that if it would happen with everybody but her attitude seems to be selective only to the ones that don’t kiss her pompous behind . Yolanda’s face when Kyle retorted that she had no interest in being her friend was priceless, it was even as if Yolanda couldn’t believe what she was hearing so she turned to Brandi for support and help.
      I have never believed that Lisa or Yolanda really see Brandi as a real, true friend, they seem to look at her more like a pet project or a charity case. In return Brandi gives them blind loyalty and a staunch defense of their back which is everything for the likes of Lisa and Yolanda. Lisa and Yolanda both have very strong personalities and there can’t be two queen bees so I am sure soon enough we will see how come Yolanda and Brandi become a team against Lisa, I am very curious to see how this friendship degenerates into what it is today.

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

  26. dickens says:

    If Carlton wants to be so private about her religion, why is she advertising it on her skin?
    The F U on the cross is asking for controversy.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I noticed how when Kyle asked about the pentagram Carlton was ready to give her some nasty resort , probably some “that is rude”, “you don’t ask people about religious symbols”, all while Brandi is right next to her with the Virgen in her teets and Carlton had been joking about “suckling” but then immediately Lisa and Yolanda also asked about it and then Carlton sourly face changed and she gave some sort of calm explanation.
      Regarding Carlton I really do not care about her religion, lack of it, or anything about her seems appealing to me, her double standards and her talking from both sides of her mouth completely discount any message that might have been interesting.

      • BB says:

        Exactly. If I ever want to learn about Wiccan, it will not be by listening to Carlton. When she speaks about herself, all I hear is white noise.

        • Cartwheels says:

          Sad because I am naturally curious and I love to learn about different religious point of view, not because I will ever changed mine but because to me is very interesting. When I heard that Carlton was a Wicca I was excited that we were going to learn much more than the usual stereotypes about witches, it doesn’t matter to me now as Carlton has proven to be a bitch so I am no longer interested in anything she has to say about her, her religion or anything about her.

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

            Carlton is only bitchy about the Wicca stuff when Kyle asks her about it-if we want to learn more about we have to hope Lisa Yolanda or Brandi asks her about it on camera-then we will get nice Carlton-not witchybitchy Carlton!!!

          • I think the best way to learn about it these days is Google, Bing, or one of those. Not a trash heap reality show.

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

              If I were truly interested I would google it but Carlton has turned me off to any and everything she believes in that my interest is zero. She is a mean witch!!!

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      I agree and found the FU on the cross story Carlton told total BS and just as offensive as the religious symbol on Brandi’s bathing suit. I don’t believe Carlton at all.

  29. VV™ says:

    Yolanda and Brandi got close on the trip to Paris and their friendship continued to grow from there. Brandi’s didn’t know how to cut Lisa off at the time but because Lisa was filming VANDERPUMP RULES, DWTS and RHOBH at the same time early this year. Lisa also had her work and projects she was too busy to realize the B & Yofo were very tight. It wasn’t after they started filming that Lisa realized she was being blindsided by Yofo and Brandi.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      VV-I noticed that you often say Lisa was too busy to realize somethings but Lisa wasn’t too busy to notice the cheating rumors and the mags talking about it-she wasn’t to busy to start a little drama with Kyle when the cameras started rolling and the bringing of the mags on the trip thing seems to have taken a bit of planning-either Lisa is really good at managing her time or she likes being in the center of the drama more than she leads some of us to believe. I get that she had three shows going at once but Lisa is not too busy to play the game. She knows what she has to do and she finds time to do it-she’s not to busy to be a real certified HW. Of course now looking back Lisa feels that she has gotten played by Brandi and Yolanda-but if she didn’t realize it she would be excusing Brandi’s behavior just like she has in the past-busy or not-she always found time to excuse Brandi for that damn lying lawsuit crap!
      I like Lisa-but Lisa made her bed and she let Brandi sleep in it-it says something about who Lisa is. It’s just what it is-just b/c she is trying to put some space between them doesn’t change the fact that she was Brandi’s biggest cheerleader last season. I wonder why she ever thought cheering for Brandi was a good idea?

      • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

        How is this different from Kyle’s lack of support over the Adrienne Maloof claim that Lisa sold stories to the tabloids? Lisa got no support from Kyle. Kyle is the one is almost non-stop nothing stories in dailymail.uk which is the sister site of radaronline. If anyone is selling stories, it’s Kyle in exchange for all the fluff.

        • Katie (aka kats2) says:

          I think the whole reason Lisa is playing that “will you never really know” crappy line about Kyle’s marriage is because Kyle never came to Lisa’s defense when Adrienne made the claims over the tabloids. It’s all tit for tat they are both wrong and just bad friends to each other. I like Kyle more than others this seasons, I’d like to like Lisa again, actually wish these two would makeup and be real friends. They were cute together at times and wanted to see more of that. Not sure why the husbands seem to be legit friends and these two can’t stop the BS. And Kyle is not Fat that’s just silly IMO.

          • VV™ says:

            Lisa replying to “one” tweet that read #fatkyle is the same as Kyle replying to all the malicious tweets, name calling and insulting Lisa. This Kyle did and it wasn’t just one tweet. It was a lot of tweets.

          • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

            Actually that crappy line is almost word for word what Kyle said about Taylor’s abuse stories, so…. You have Kyle to thank for that.

        • Cartwheels says:

          Kyle confront Russell face to face and told him in to uncertain terms that she didn’t believe that Lisa was the one giving stories about them even when Taylor insisted that one of the articles had information that she had only confided on Lisa. Kyle still insisted that she didn’t believe that.
          Kyle didn’t defend Lisa during the reunion because they have already had their fall out that led to the Bobby Fisher comment , but when Lisa was not around and her name was dragged trough the mud by Russel , Kyle did defend Lisa.

          • Katie (aka kats2) says:

            Wow good memory. That Bobby Fisher comment is proving to be correct.

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

              The Bobby Fisher comment felt correct to me back when Kyle said it. Lisa knows what she is doing-she is great at acting like the drama isn’t her thing( yet she is a HW.) She can run the game and still keep her popularity on top-it’s a gift actually. The others are baffled. They see things that we don’t-they know Lisa differently than we do. They do not have the finesss to get their point across without looking bitchy and Lisa can do this easily…I think it drives them crazy!!!

          • VV™ says:

            Kyle was a willing participant in several scenes ( Taylor going to her house with prints from rag mags) and later at dinner at her house of Lisa being accused of selling stories. Just like she didn’t say she believe Taylor that Russell abused her. Kyle said she didn’t know. At reunion, making that Bobbi Fisher comment ( I think Faye Resnik came up with it “IMO”) she didn’t defend Lisa. S2 of RHOBH started with the ladies icing Lisa. The plot changed with Russell’s suicide.

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

          I’m not talking about supporting anyone-I’m talking about being too busy to be involved in certain things-Lisa is not too busy to be involved b/c she is involved.

          • VV™ says:

            If she’s filming RHOBH they have to talk about what is going on in their lives. I don’t get what you’re saying? The cheating rumor was happening when they were filming? Lisa gave Kyle the chance to put dismiss it with humor but Kyle is no Bobbi Fisher. She saw an opportunity to act victim and vilify Lisa.

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

              Lisa didn’t bring up the rumors b/c she wanted to talk about what was going on in Kyle’s life did she? That’s why the rumors were on film? I’m going to say no way. She brought them up for a reason-just not that one.It wasn’t Lisa’s business to decide how Kyle would handle it so giving Kyle a chance to dismiss the rumors with humor may not have been what Kyle wanted. I think Kyle didn’t want the rumors on TV at all.

              • VV™ says:

                Okay, I’m with my friend hypothetically speaking we are reality stars and we are talking on a scene the ridiculous allegations thrown out there by rag magazines. I am not going to get offended at a joke that my little has no clue what is being talked about IF I knew the context of the conversation. Kyle knew they were talking about the nonsense of some of the gossip. That’s all…..unless rumors are true then you get defensive….

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

                  Ok let’s say I say to my friend-please let’s not talk about the cheating thing-and then as soon as the cameras start rolling that friend brings up the cheating thing. I would be mad as hell. It wouldn’t matter if they rumors were true or not-it would matter that my friend knew I didn’t want to talk about it but they brought it up anyway…I would wonder why.
                  It would make me very suspicious of my friend-what’s the point? What’s the game…

                  • VV™ says:

                    Did Kyle ask Lisa that? I must have missed that interview? When did Kyle said she specifically ask her cast mates not to talk about it?

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

                      No VV-you didn’t miss an interview-I was only stating my thoughts like we all do. I got the feeling that Kyle didn’t want to bring it up on camera when the first scene aired. Kyle didn’t say anything to Lisa or make a face to Lisa like “what the hell are you bringing that up for”?? You didn’t miss Kyle’s reaction to Lisa bringing up the rumor right? Did she look like she wanted to talk about it? Did she look like she wasn’t surprised that Lisa brought it up? She sure looked like that to me.

            • kit9 says:

              Lisa’s contention she was being helpful by putting horrible humiliating rumors front and center on a nationally broadcast tv show is big pile of stinking dung. And, of course, completely contradicts what Lisa would later say bout how to handle rumors. She did it to humiliate and embarrass Kyle. And it’s worth about a 1 million Bobby Fisher comments. I bet $$ everything Kyle’s said about Lisa will be proven true.

            • Cartwheels says:

              The cheating rumors definitely didn’t come up when they were filming. The cheating rumors came up on April 3rd , the lunch at Carlton came 6 weeks later, that is why we often heard Kyle say that nobody was giving her a heads up on a 6 week old rumor.
              Lisa didn’t bring the rumors up for Kyle to dismiss them, if that was the case Lisa would have brought them up only once and be done with it.
              Lisa brought it up, then she talked about them in her talking heads as the “elephant in the room that needed to be addressed”, then she talked about them at her lunch with Yolanda and Brandi, once again at the Carlton’s lunch, then once more with Ken and it seems that in the trip to Palm Spring they will talk about it once again. Lisa, Yolanda and Brandi brought up the cheating rumors in an attempt to humiliate and embarrass Kyle, that to me is pretty obvious.

              • VV™ says:

                How do we know that “elephant in the room” comment was about the rumors? I don’t think it was. This is Bravo 101 editing. They take a TH comment about something to make it about something else. If I hear Lisa say the rumor afterwards I believe it. In the meantime, it’s Bravo manipulation of sound bites and comments.

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

          I’m confused about the selling of stories.-I didn’t say Lisa sold stories but I did say something about bringing the mags on vacation or wherever they went. I personally think every single HW runs to the press with stories and I think they all learned to do so from the remarkable JZ-she is the one who loved going to the press and now it seems they all do it-I don’t think all of them SELL stories but I think they all GIVE stories…all of them.

          • Cartwheels says:

            Brandi stated that Lisa asked her to bring some magazines that have the cheating rumors on it to the trip to Palm Springs and confront Kyle with them, Kim mentioned in Bethenny something about the magazines that slipped from one of the suitcases.
            I guess when it all came to a head and confrontations happened (Brandi said they happened behind cameras so I am not sure we will be privy to them) Lisa washed her hands of the issue and let Brandi take the fault and that is when Brandi got pissed at Lisa.
            IIRC the big fall out won’t happen until the trip to PR though because that is when Yolanda will confront Lisa about her machinations.

            • VV™ says:

              So, now we believe Brandi. First, she’s a lier BUT when it come to throw shade at Lisa we believe her?

              • LaineyLainey says:

                I have been wondering about that, too.

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

                  I don’t believe anything Brandi says-from the “secret meeting” to take down Lisa to this whole magazine thing. I do believe Lisa was involved but I think her part in it is less sinister than Brandi wants us to believe. Lisa isn’t completely innocent but she is not a “gang leader” here. When I see what goes down with this whole Brandi and Lisa thing I won’t be surprised one way or another-b/c it’s all typical HW crap.

      • VV™ says:

        Here we GO again.
        Kyle and Lisa were talking about magazines making up stories. EX. Kyle being pregnant etc etc. Mauricio walks in (on cue) already mic’d in the scene to tell Kyle he’s going and taking Portia blah blah blah. Lisa makes A JOKE so this must be the young woman they say they see you with all the time ( paraphrasing ). Kyle ON TH starts the waterworks NOT in front of the cameras and Bravo didn’t provide us with more footage so we don’t know what both of the talked about after joke was made.
        Kyle could’ve told Lisa ha ha ha that must be the young girl meaning Portia but instead Kyle chose the victim role ( it’s the only one she knows how to play).
        It was Brandi who brought them up again at Carlsyons dinner and B said she did to give Kyle heads up to prepare for what is coming.

        I was one of the few that wasn’t sure Mauricio was not cheating. Kyle’s waterworks and over reaction ( more than anybody bringing this up on my TV screen) had convinced me now. He cheated. Yofo’s blog hinted he did as well.

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

          It doesn’t matter if he cheated or not-my point is only that Lisa had plenty of time to get involved in the issue-the issue is not important. You said she was too busy for this or that and I’m pointing out that she finds time for all the usual HW shenanigans.

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

            And one more thing-Yolanda is really not in a position to worry about or comment on Mauricio’s cheating-she has her own husband to worry about-she needs to tread lightly where “affairs” are concerned. I would think she would be #wiser than to make any such implications.

        • kit9 says:

          Kyle didn’t cry when Lisa brought the allegations onto the show. She didn’t yell. She didn’t laugh or have any of the reactions you suggest she should for very good reason. She was literally stunned silent. Go watch the footage. She was so completely shocked that Lisa would go THAT LOW. Be that freaking vicious.

          • VV™ says:

            Only if I see an unedited version of what transpire and Kyle is shown doing that, I believe you. We saw what Bravo wanted us to see AND what I did see was a lot of inserting of Crying Heads and scenes from years past of Lisa. Bravo was painting a picture or telling a story as David Rupel calls it. Kyle’s story line for this season. If it’s not for that what else is Kyle story to tell.

            • kit9 says:

              Not sure how Kyle’s stunned silent reaction is somehow an editing trick. We saw what Lisa said and we saw Kyle’s reaction-like she was punched in the stomach. And, we saw it more than once as Lisa kept bringing it up. ONLY when Lisa decided it was a great idea to make a joke about painful cheating allegations involving Kyle’s 5 yo kid did Kyle finally respond and tell her to stop. Oh, and Mauricio’s reaction is more of the same-stunned.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Lisa was done with DWTS as early as April 9th, the ladies of RHBH didn’t start filming together until the party at Kyle’s house which happened in the middle of April, so basically Lisa was just working on her new bar and filming, plenty of time. VP almost doesn’t count because in that show Lisa seems almost like an invited guest.
      IMO Lisa got cocky and overconfident on the fans support and thought that taking Kyle down with Brandi and Yolanda’s support and Carlton as an added bonus would be an easy task.
      I mean, let’s be real, the other team was lousy, Kyle who always has been unpopular, Kim who is a blabbering mess and Joyce who looked like a dimwit and a beauty queen as Yolanda so dismissively refers to. Lisa, Brandi and Yolanda during that lunch were gloating at the fact that Kyle had lost her support team so they probably thought that nailing the last nail on Kyle’s coffin would be a piece of cake.
      To their surprise Kim has surprised everybody, by the virtue of being sober and her spot on assessments and her ability to see through their facades, Joyce has turned into a spitfire opponent. I just think they were surprised and completely underestimated their opponent.

      • Katie (aka kats2) says:

        Again I agree. You and Not that Jill pretty much sum things up the way I feel too. That lunch was nothing but a bunch of mean girl HS crap. So disappointed in Lisa and Yolanda they should know better. I get Kyle was not the best friend to Lisa but either make amends, not just lip service or move on. This in-between stuff is not fun to watch.

      • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

        Lisa has never been shown to take anyone down. This is just crazy. The only people taking Kyle down have been Camille, TMCFR for being her mouthpiece and Kyle herself.

        • Katie (aka kats2) says:

          Of course we’ve never seen it. Lisa is too smart for that and Lisa won’t get her hands dirty. She plants the seeds and let’s Brandi do the rest with her big mouth. Lisa didn’t get her hands dirty with Adrienne, didn’t have to Brandi did it for her.

        • VV™ says:

          Yes, Camille S1. When she said her husband was a respected member of her community blah blah blah and Mauricio was just your local BH realtor ( paraphrasing ). Camille in that regards was like Yofo. They both new their bank accounts were much much larger than some of their cast mates.

      • VV™ says:

        Oh no, DWTS has rehearsals way before they go live. They also have to do press and interviews on Radio, TV, Print media to promote the show. Just because she got voted out early doesn’t mean she was done with the show as they all have to promote and make appearances.

        If Kim is the voice if reason, Houston we have a problem. Bravo editing wants to make her the voice of reason. One or at least me only has to see her on an interview to know all her neurons are not making synapses.

        Kyle has not always been unpopular. I was a fan and defended her until reunion S2. When everything that everybody was telling me I saw crystal clear. Big disapointment.

  30. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    The more Brandi tweets the dumber she looks-this mornings tweet about “look who I woke up next to” or whatever -turns out the guy is gay but that’s not really the issue-she tweeted the pic and words to stir up crap. That’s not really the issue either-her job is to get people talking about her. The real issue is her piss poor attitude and that of her “defenders” on twitter who think their job is call out every person who tweets Brandi. You want publicity Brandi? Take it-but take it all-the good the bad and the slutty! You don’t get to decide how the public will treat you and neither do your fans-the public decides how much shit they are going to read and what they are going to comment on. If you can’t stand the heat baby get out of the damn kitchen bedroom bathtub whatever! I’m over the boofriggenhoo crybaby victim crap-grow up and stop tweeting dumb shit and maybe you won’t get so much crap…in fact-maybe you won’t get anything at all…then what genius?

    Brandi is so head aching. When Brandi was calling Joyce Jacqueline, I would have answered her with the name Leann.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Brandi would have loved that, this would have allowed her to go back to her favorite place, the victim.
      I can almost see it now, Yolanda, Lisa and Carlton comforting her and petting her hair all while admonishing Joyce for daring to call her Leann.
      I am glad Joyce kept her cool, it made the size of the others’ pettiness every bigger and more evident.

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      I really wish someone would call her that.

  33. AZGirl says:

    Thank you NMD, Ramona Coaster and Starzy for the recaps. Nice day today…..in shorts…..sunny and 73….now ducking from the stuff being thrown at me…he,he,he,…

  34. Oh Stars, you must be exhausted, great job, love the categories!!! I love Brandi saying in her blog “I generally feel like the more you protest about something the guiltier one usually looks” seriously then stop tweeting that you’re not a racist. Just stop, let it die a natural death…oh, wait, then what would people talk about…you would have to do something else to get attention, like tweet a picture of a guy in your bed….seriously, GET A HOBBY!!!! I am always busy or doing something and have lots to talk about with people when hanging out with them, I personally can’t remember the last time I was bored, oh wait, last Monday night watching this show!!!!

    • Stars99 says:

      Lol… Tiara… As if any of these women could let anything die a natural death… they have to beat it to death… ugh… Didn’t you have an appropriate picture for that? lol… I think we should work on a hobby list for all of them, no? There are way more productive things they could be doing with their lives… Thanks always for your encouragement, Tiara… You truly are royalty! = )

  35. California35 says:

    ” …although it didn’t go too well, I was just trying to be funny — as I always try to be… ”
    This reminds me of Jill. She said something like that when everything else failed. Saying she was trying to be funny like Bethenny, but it dont work for her.

  36. Dreamboat says:

    I think Lisa and Brandi have had mostly a friendship of convenience. They both needed someone to film with and it gave them a storyline.

    • Powell says:

      Brandi w/Lisa. Lisa had her businesses for her storyline. Welcome Dreamboat.

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      Absolutely, it was the link to Lisa’s spin-off VPRules show and why people watched at least the first episode. If what went down with Brandi and Adrienne is true I think Lisa and Yolanda are using her in a similar way to get to the people they don’t like.

      • VV™ says:

        I tuned in to Vpump Rules the first time it aired because it was Lisa’s spinoff show not because Brandi and Schaenna had a scene together. Lisa had a big enough fan base to earn her a spinoff way before Branfi was in the picture way before people were aware Scheana was Eddie’s mistress.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I watched because of Lisa. In fact I found it disappointing that there wasn’t more Lisa in VdPump rules.

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

            I watched b/c of Lisa also-I wanted to see her in action. Instead I get to watch wannabe actors try to act! I wish it were more about Lisa and less about STDs….

      • kit9 says:

        Oh, it’s absolutely why I watched that first episode. And, obviously Lisa thought it a big enough draw and promo gold or she wouldn’t have called in that big favor in asking a reluctant Brandi to do it.

  37. Katie (aka kats2) says:

    I have one positive thing to say about Brandi and her friends that went out last night. They put that fameho from BB Amanda Zuckerman in her place. Amanda tried to hang out with Brandi last night F list trying to make it to the D List I guess. Amanda made it sound like they did hang out but the truth cannon Brandi blew that up and said she walked by her table no idea who she is doesn’t watch BB. And Brandi’s friend tweeted this

    Peter DeRosa ‏@peteraderosa 4h
    @AMANDAZUCKERMAN please talk about something else! I thought u were cool. Guess NOT

    Amanda has now blocked her twitter account which I think is a fantastic gift to everyone. So thank you Brandi and Peter for putting another fameho in her place. If only you can keep using your attention seeking powers for more good deeds like this, people might like you again.

    • Who is Amanda in this world anyway? Another trashy Ho with a big mouth…

      • Katie (aka kats2) says:

        exactly. poor girl is trying to get reality star attention and so far it’s not working (thank god)!

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Actually this story has legs… long hairy ones! Earlier in the week ZlistAmandaZuckerman started tweeting Brandi to meet up in FLA. She’s from Boca. She mentioned one of Brandi’s gays as the connector for them. IMMEDIATELY Brandi was warned by friends and foes alike that the last person she needed to be “seen with” was crude racist BigBrotherAmandaZ. It seems that since a few blogs picked up the story of Amanda’s tweets Brandi is now saying they just met. Amanda said differently on twitter, that she hung out with them, Brandi felt her up and she saw her making out w/ some guy.. This gay guy is not denying what Amanda said just that she should talk of something else and he thought she was cool. Why didn’t he say she just said hi if that was the case? Anywhore it seems Brandi deleted her AmandaZ tweets from earlier in the week. Suspect much?

      This is the girl who wanted to hang out with Brandi.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I figured there had to be more to the story than,..”she stopped to say hi at our table”

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

        This Amanda chick shut down her twitter (locked it up) but I saw something about a tweet she had-Brandi was falling out of her dress and Brandi grabbed Amanda’s boob? I haven’t seen the tweet but I think Brandi responded to it…let me go check out twitter and see what’s happening.

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

          This is Brandi’s response to Amanda’s boob tweet

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            Yes, yes… Always the truth cannon but never has a match unless it’s her face and someone’s ASS. A lying liar who lies like a persian rug.

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

            Amanda deleted the tweet on her TL (I followed her to see if I could find it) but there is a SS of the tweet-Brandi is calling her a liar and she is calling Brandi out…these two deserve each other I think!!

      • Katie (aka kats2) says:

        Wow! thank you for all the details. It’s so hard to keep up with everything.

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

          Whenever Brandi does something like this there is always lots of details!! Nothing is easy about this chick!!

    Stars99 I’m not done reading yet, but want to tell you i love your intro. Made me laugh hard. Thank you for all you have to do to write this, and to make it fun for us to read 🙂

    • Stars99 says:

      Hello My Neighbor, California – It’s always great to make someone laugh… Thanks for your kind comments! = )

  40. Pghemtchick says:

    Thanks for the blogs and recaps!
    I had a good lol at the skinny dipping, all I could think of was the sign that says, “We don’t skinny dip in our pool, we chunky dunk!” If I had a pool again, I’d own that sign. Lol.
    So the LeAnn connection is stupid. I really wish the rabid followers would do the math. Yes, Joyce’s husband was a producer on a film Eddie was in. So obviously, Joyce knows LeAnn since their hubbies worked together. The movie was “The Cave” and came out in 2005 when Brandi and Eddie were together. Then there was they were at the same charity event so obviously they “know” each other. Wouldn’t it be amazing if it worked like that? People will never cease to amaze me.

  41. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Starzy-every single word you wrote about Brandi and this statement :
    “I hope you see that although it didn’t go too well, I was just trying to be funny — as I always try to be. Life is not worth living if you can’t laugh with your close friends. 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.”
    Was friggen perfection!!!! She thinks that because we didn’t laugh at her “joke” that we are the ones with the problem-this is HER biggest problem!!! She doesn’t get it and the poor nitwit never will!! Your blog of the blogs this week was amazing-you deserve something homemade-cookies or a cake…idk but something BIG!! Thank you thank you my friend-you did a fabulous job!!!
    Now I need to go see what these Atlanta chicks had to say!!!

    • Stars99 says:

      Smiles at Jill… The REAL Jill – Not that other one… Yeah, Brandi thinks she’s a comedian… but isn’t the joke on her? Thanks for your very kind words, my friend… Hope you enjoy Atlanta tonight! = )

  42. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Ramonacoaster-thanks for the ATL blogs-I like these women b/c the say it straight. There isn’t so much game playing in their blogs-you almost never read “watch what happens” or “read between the lines” from these chicks. They are more honest in their opinions than any other HW city. Sometimes they get a little nasty but it’s different than the other cities. They are more “real”…or better actresses? Idk but I’m still liking ATL and NeNe-even Phaedra…poor Porsha-she’s a mess but I’m rooting for her. I just wish she would say some crazy things like last season-she’s not “perturbed” enough!!!

  45. Aussie Aussie says:

    Thanks both for the great blogs. Stars99 absolutely loved it & you could go on because I kept looking for more. My feelings towards Lisa is that she wasn’t friends with Kyle, Kim seriously needs to be off the show, & she had a needle in her side inregard to Joyce about the hairgate situation. So she was sort of, uncomfortably so on the Brandy side of the fence. No one at that table are really friends Lisa did enjoy I am sure the jibs at Kyle & Joyce but then it all pear shape & now there is need for apologises which Lisa says that she has made to Joyce directly.
    Joyce needs to stop with the old comments or else she be will be old news.
    Brandi needs to SHUT UP I want to see lavish (joyous) lifestyles not crap not the story lines are at the moment.
    Also Carlton if you didn’t want to dicuss I am sure you could say so but instead you are the one to bring it to everyone’s attention & then cry but don’t ask questions. Guess what you are offensive as is Brand. And neither have class nor any great intelligence to keep us interested.
    These shows are giving me grey hair I am off to my hairdressers for help.
    Also thanks for keeping Lynn’s name alive.

    • Stars99 says:

      Awww… Thanks so much for your kind comments, Aussie Aussie… Wouldn’t it be nice if Bravo actually listened to what the viewers REALLY want to watch? It isn’t this train derailment… that’s for sure! We’ve all earned grey hair from watching these shows, no? lolol… Enjoy! = )

      • Aussie Aussie says:

        I’m actually sure they do but they are delusional enough to believe they know best.
        thank the techno gods for fast forward or else I would not be able to get through some of these characters. thanks again 😉
