Dear Brandi – It’s not Them, It’s You by NMD

Dear Brandi,

After reviewing your latest Bravo blog, I want to give you a little advice.

When your friends jump ship mid-season, it’s not them, it’s you.

When a castmate is offended by your words and actions, it’s not them, it’s you.

When you encourage your fans to attack your rivals, it’s not them, it’s you.

When you engage every over zealous fan, and throw hate back at them, it’s not them, it’s you.

You say you are a good person.  Stop saying it, and start showing it.

I’m not going to pretend to understand what is going on with your life.  Yolanda blogs that she’s sticking by you because you need her support.  I can only surmise that there is something else going on in your life that is making you react like this.

You can tell yourself that this is all a game for rating and you are not really like this. Maybe that’s true.  Maybe you’ve just gotten caught up in the fame game.  Whatever has happened – it’s gone too far.  You’ve lost fans in droves.  You’ve offended people.  But most importantly, you seem to be coming apart at the seams.

Bravo won’t reward you for this.  Just ask Jill Zarin, Taylor Armstrong, or Kelly Bensimon. After your reputation is destroyed they will toss you aside for a younger, richer, prettier, housewife.

Don’t blame your castmates for doing their jobs, for talking to the press, or for sharing their reactions to your actions.  They are allowed to do their jobs.  It’s not personal.

Only you can stop this self-destructing cycle.  Remember, it’s not them, it’s you.

Here’s a word cloud of Brandi’s Blog (using Wordle software).

Below is Brandi’s full Bravo blog –  No copyright infringement intended.

As of today I have a new outlook. No more feeling sorry for myself because I had a rough year or some pathetic, phony famewh— can’t stop talking about me and throwing bulls— labels my way. I know exactly who I am — and that is a good person who says stupid s– sometimes and lives without prejudice in my life.

I was a hot-mess for part of this season, and I fully f—ing admit that. I’d like to say thank you to the people in my life that love me through the good times and the rough times and who don’t jump ship because I’m not having my best year. Also thank you to my friends in the Twitter-verse and on social media that have been a huge support to me, even before I started this rollercoaster of a ride on reality TV. THANK YOU!!!

For the assh—s that write hateful tweets or said mean things to me because I am not perfect and clearly you are, please, please, please F— OFF, F— YOU, GO F— YOURSELF, AND FINALLY SHUT THE F— UP! 2014 is a new year and it’s going to be good! I can’t wait for this reunion. It’s about to be f—ing on!!! Bring it bitches.


Vanderpump Rules – S3Ep08

“Sherlock Stassi” by HydrangeaHussy

Last week ended with Katie’s drunken revelation that Kristen slept with Jax.  We pick up with hungover Katie showing up at Kristina, Kristen, & Stassi’s garage sale, which is actually just a table on the sidewalk.  Kristina immediately brings up the night before, which causes Katie to have a breakdown & storm off.  Is she still drunk?  Stassi sort of believes the rumor & wants to get to the bottom of it.  She says that Kristen is being too calm about the allegations.  Katie says that she was telling the truth, but that it’s just a rumor that she shouldn’t have repeated.  Kristen tells Katie that she’s only upset because Stassi believes the allegations.  In classic two-faced Stassi style, she decides to be nice to Kristen’s face while plotting a way to prove the rumor is true.  Why is she BFF with someone she obviously doesn’t trust?

Lisa is reviewing Sur’s online reviews.  She says that it’s important to follow social media to see what the everyday customer thinks of Sur.  Lisa wants to bring in a secret diner to test some of the staff.  She wants to know how they treat a regular customer, rather than a celebrity or VIP.  Lisa meets with a food blogger who will fit in with Sur’s customers.  She has plenty of experience in the restaurant business so she’ll be able to give Lisa a good review.  This should be interesting.

Kristen & Tom are at home, folding laundry.  They discuss the rumor about Kristen & Jax.  Kristen realizes that Stassi doesn’t believe her.  Tom says that Katie is lying because she was drunk.  He doesn’t believe that Kristen would sleep with Jax.

The group is at brunch, which Stassi loves.  She wants to get Jax drunk so that she can get to the bottom of the rumor.  Kristen & Tom stayed home because they were fighting.  Stassi isn’t having a good time because she’s focused on the rumor.  Kristina stirs the pot, saying that Kristen is manipulative & would definitely sleep with Jax.  Stassi is now determined to take Jax down.  It’s obvious that she doesn’t trust him, but shouldn’t she trust her friend?  Of course, Kristina has to be there when Stassi confronts Jax.  Jax denies sleeping with Kristen.  The girls just won’t quit.  Stassi accuses Jax of lying because she doesn’t agree with what he’s saying.

Stassi tells Lisa that Katie was drunk & told her that Kristen slept with Jax.  Why do they continue to involve their boss in their drama?  In her TH Lisa admits that she’s heard the rumor, but doesn’t want to repeat gossip from her staff.  Lisa recalls Stassi saying that Kristen was obsessed with Jax, but that obsessed is different than sleeping with.  She reminds Stassi that Kristen is her BFF.  Lisa tells Stassi to do what she needs to, but to keep it out of Sur.

Alina, the secret diner, arrives at the lounge at Sur.  She is seated & reviews the menu.  Scheana & Katie are arguing about something at the computer.  Scheana goes the bar & tells Tom how annoyed she is with Katie.  Alina is waiting for service while Scheana & Tom are gossiping at the bar.  Tom tells Scheana about the rumor, which she immediately believes.  Scheana finally gets around to Alina’s table.  They ask some questions about the menu & she seems able answer them.  They stop Katie to ask about their appetizer, who goes to find Scheana.  She gets roped into the gossip, apologizing for her behavior at Peter’s party.  She doesn’t mention the missing food.  The food finally arrives & Scheana brings the check to the table.

Alina & her friend move into the restaurant, where Stassi is their server.  Stassi says that it’s hard to work with people when there are so many rumors floating around.  She can’t resist throwing a dig at Jax in front of her customers.  Jax says that he doesn’t really replace drinks when they’re sent back & that customers don’t usually notice.  Scheana goes to Stassi & tells her that Katie apologized.  Scheana is upset that Stassi didn’t stand up for her to Katie.  Stassi says that Katie is crazy when she’s drunk.  She apologizes. Katie continues doing damage control, coming to the restaurant to apologize to Jax for repeating the rumor.  Jax doesn’t want to hear it & says that he expects these things from Katie.

Lisa is at Sur to talk to the staff about Alina’s report.  She was surprised that Stassi did a good job.  She tells Scheana that she had a secret diner last night to see what happens when she isn’t at the restaurant.  Scheana says that she gave great service to everyone.  Lisa reads Alina’s report – Scheana was standing at the bar, talking, instead of greeting customers.  She admits that she was talking to Tom because she was annoyed at Katie.  She tells Lisa that she promises to do better in the future.  Lisa moves on to Jax.  Alina noted that he spent most of the time on his phone & that the drinks weren’t great.  Jax admits that he was on the phone too much because of the rumors.  He asks Lisa if she really believes the rumor & she responds by saying that he doesn’t have the best track record.

Stassi is at Katie’s apartment.  She needs all of the details, even though Katie doesn’t want to talk about it.  Apparently Jax told Other Katie that he slept with Kristen.  Other Katie told Katie, who confronted Jax.  Jax & Kristen denied it.  Stassi asks why Katie didn’t tell her for 6 months.  She thinks that Katie actually believed the rumor.  Katie feels guilty for possibly destroying a friendship.  Stassi hopes that she is wrong & that she looks like an idiot at the end of this.  She says that she’s going to Kristen to use her phone to text/trap Jax.

Stassi shows up at Tom & Kristen’s.  She says that the only way to move on is to use Kristen’s phone to have a conversation with Jax.  Tom thinks that she’s nuts.  Kristen hands over the phone.  She says that she has nothing to hide.  They all anxiously await Jax’s response.  Jax says that he has no clue what Kristen could be talking about.  Stassi finally believes that Kristen didn’t sleep with Jax.  Kristen is upset that Stassi believed the rumor.  Stassi gives a half-apology, saying she’s sorry but that Jax isn’t trustworthy.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. HA!!!!! NMD I love the title, “Dear Brandi – It’s not them, It’s you.” I hope you all have a great day.

    • lulu says:

      Good morning Powell!! Lol at the title! Unfortunately Brandi the unfortunate soul is either too dense or narcissistic to “get” it. Damage is done Next!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      You nailed it NMD – bullseye! Brandi will only get it together after she hits the proverbial rock bottom. Too bad she can’t do it before then.

      Good morning to all here. It’s going to be in the 50s in Huskerland today and then the arctic blast comes in on Sunday. I can take the cold – just leave the snow and ice somewhere else!

      • missusmc says:

        I don’t know that there is a rock bottom. Some people are just trash- they’re born into a trashy mentality and will never change. Sure, brandi can (and should) sober up, but really, I don’t know that she can ever class it up. It’s too much a part of who she is.

        • mrs peabody says:

          she can’t ever class up, it’s that mentality that she has, She’ll never change because deep down inside her she sees nothing wrong with the way she acts. I know someone like her and she too will never change. When they get to be to much you just remove them from your life and let someone else deal with their trashy behavior. Like I said before I’m so surprised given how above everyone that Yolo sees herself and her god like husband that she worships the ground he walks on that would even want their names associated with someone who is so trashy. I don’t care if they are on the same show or not. You know what Caroline says about trash.

          • HuskerHuny says:

            The Yolanda/Brandi connection is also confusing to me. Yolanda is quick to point out others flaws, but for some reason, Brandi gets a pass. There is something there that we are not aware of or Yolo’s Lyme disease is numbing her to Brandi’s so-not-acceptable behavior.

          • Powell says:

            missusmc & Mrs. P I just get a kick out of you saying Brandi can’t ever “class it up”. It’s a shame that you ladies are probably right on the money.

          • Maybe they can do a TV movie of Pygmalion …….My Fair Brandi…. “The f*cking rain in Spain lays f*cking mainly on the f*cking plain” or “I could have drank all night, I could have drank all night, and still found time to tweeeeeetttttt”

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Good Morning all.

      I too love the tittle of todays blog, so succinct and true.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Good morning, Powellypooh! Good morning everyone!! Love the letter to Brandi. Hydrangea, thanks for the vdPump rules, blog! Good job! That really seemed fake didn’t it? What about Jax’ therapy? Fake? I think so.

    • Oh she should so really like people to talk shite about her.. If they didn’t say something she would be begging for attention anywhere she could get it.

  2. lulu says:

    Good morning!!! Am I first? We are starting the new year sick. All of us including Aiden have a head cold. ;( hope all of you are having a wonderful sick-free day!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Noooo….you’re ending the year sick…by Jan 1, you’ll all be healed up…starting the new year WELL!

    • Powell says:

      Oh goodness Lulu. Did the Gov spread the love? 🙂 I hope the boys are having fun w/their toys.

    • Powell says:

      I don’t know what is wrong w/me Lulu. I feel kinda blah from head to toe. I’ve been feeling like this since Christmas. Thks goodness I worked from home yesterday and my boss let me work at home today and I’m on leave til Jan 10th use or lose starting at 4:30 pm today. Hopefully I’ll shake this feeling, whatever it is.

      • The Holidays take a lot out of us!! I hope you are able to take time for yourself and rest and relax. I am glad you have some time off. Sleep in, stay in your pjs, put on some good music. Be good to YOU!!!! (((((Powell)))))

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Be well, pooh!!! Maybe it’s exhaustion. Rest. Water. Stretch. Pray. Breathe. Take a bubble bath. Slather on the lotion. The simple things can be profoundly healing. Ask someone to rub your feet or your shoulders, the human touch can also bring comfort to an ailing body and soul.

      • lulu says:

        Oh no Powell!!! You need to shake it by doing something you really enjoy. Before when I had the blues regardless of the season I would go to the zoo. Now its a brisk walk through my neighborhood. I hope you kick it and fast.

        • Powell says:

          Thks ladies. IDK what it is. On and off I feel like I’m getting a cold but it hasn’t turned into a cold. I just have symptoms that go away and then come back. I’m sure it’ll pass.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Feel better Powell. I’m downing garlic cloves and emergenC packets like nobody’s business.

  3. Powell says:

    Oh i cant wait for the reunion too cuz she’s the one that’s gonna need shin guards.

  4. NaughtyButNice Rob is reporting that Bethenny’s talk show has been renewed. I usually don’t believe him – but I’d like to this time so I’m going to hope that it is true.

    • missusmc says:

      With reality TV being as big as it is, it doesn’t surprise me if her show does get renewed. There is a market for her level of TV show. She’ll never get the big stars, but if she’s happy with the level of talent she books, then good for her!

      • ladebra says:

        That’s what they said about Jimmy Kimmel, and look at him now.

        • ladebra says:

          I’m not saying Bethenny is a Jimmy Kimmel! but, he had trouble booking people at first also (and made/is still making the best joke ever about Mat Damon lol).

          • missusmc says:

            I totally get what you’re saying. I think Jimmy Kimmel befriended some Hollywood people, though, and increased his status that way. Bethenny seems to have mostly reality stars on her show. And there’s obviously a market for it- it’s worked for Wendy Williams this long! I’m not sure she’s charismatic enough to have top Hollywood people on it- to interview an A list star, you have to know that the star is, well, the star- not you. Bethenny seems to still be in reality tv mode- going head to head with her guests and “competing” for attention with the guests. I truly am happy for her, and I think this is her niche- I don’t think she would do well with A listers.

            • PJ says:

              I think Bethenny does a fine job with her guests and see no reason why she will not do well with A listers.

              • missusmc says:

                I could be wrong, but I just don’t see major Hollywood stars wanting to sit down with someone who gleefully engages in spats with Omarosa and Farrah Abraham. There’s nothing wrong with her reality base- it’s probably why her show is renewed.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                You could be right, PJ, but For now, we only have Rich Wakile and his ilk, from which to judge.

            • Powell says:

              And you know maybe that was the formula all along. To use reality “Stars”, then if she were to be renewed get C-listers, then B-Listers, until she can get A-listers.

            • plainviewsue says:

              My favorite part of her show is when she has the panel & she’s in the audience.

    • Powell says:

      Good for her. Boy oh boy is JZ jealous. Ya’ll tell me if I’m remembering this wrong but didn’t JZ say Bs show wouldn’t last long or something to that effect?

    • VV™ says:


      • chismosa™ says:

        VV this is a bad christmas for me then. 😦

        But IMHO I think she was told the show is either cancelled OR you go all into Jerry Springer mode. She likes to flail her arms around so much and scream with her audience so fine ….

        Katie was cancelled after 2 years. It can still happen next year
        She’ll take Warren’s sage business advice. 🙄 ♻️♻️♻️♻️♻️♻️🚽🚽🚽🚽🚽🚽🚽🚽🚽

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

    Yolanda will learn. Brandi causes her own problems then plays the victim.

    I can’t believe that Bravo is SO stupid that they don’t notice that ratings are down because of Brandi. She reveals plot lines, tells viewers that they won’t like the ladies because they “turn” on her, and worse yet, tells viewers to eff off every chance she gets.

    People defend her because she pulls the victim card (husband cheated, raising two boys all alone). Well I’m here to say that enabling her is just plain S-T-U-P-I-D. She needs therapy, not encouragement.

    • mrs peabody says:

      my first husband cheated on me and I raised 2 boys by myself and didn’t have the kind of income available to me that she has and I NEVER acted the way she does. I wouldn’t have embarrassed myself like that for any amount of money.

      • California35 says:

        Sorry you went through that 😦
        It would have been understanding if you had to act up a bit on one way or another, but it is goos that you focus on the important issue. Raising above and raising your children.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Good for you, Mrs. Peabody!! How old are your kids now?

        • mrs peabody says:

          my boys are in their 30’s and have children of their own now. It was hard those years we were alone but I did meet someone else a number of years later and have been very fortunate to have lived a very wonderful life with him. I am very lucky to have met him, he’s wonderful and I love him with my whole heart and have for 25 years now. Both my boys are wonderful fathers, I always told them to be the type of father they wish their dad had been and they are both very good with their children. I love them more than anything in the whole wide world and am so proud of them and how they have turned out.

      • Powell says:

        Mrs. P you saw the forest before the trees in that some day your boys will understand the truth of what happened. Good for you for being classy.

      • Amen sister! Many of us deal with what we have on our plate and don’t throw the pity card every chance we get! She need to put on her “big girl panties” (like she has any!) and get on with her life!

    • Powell says:

      Rebecca hopefully they have recognized it. Unlike Brandi they don’t reveal their hand.

  6. plainviewsue says:

    Love it NMD!!! I am still stunned that Bravo allowed that blog on its site. But then again, Bravo has been slowly sinking into the cesspool of tv programming, so maybe I shouldn’t be stunned.

    She is giving Eddie so much ammunition to go after full custody of their sons; does she not realize this?

    I truly believe she is headed towards a major mental breakdown. I am sure friends are trying to help her, but it’s like Lindsey Lohan. I am sure she surrounds herself with enablers and tells everyone else to STFU.

    It is tragic.

    • cusi77 says:

      A Facebook artist friend lost his son on Christmas day and that shacked my world… last night I was thinking exactly what you are saying Sue… Brandi looks to be at the end of her rope and I am afraid she would hurt herself in a more tragic manner… I decided to just send her prayers.

      I wish Joyce just keep it quiet. Brandi is in a self-destructive spiral and can finish really bad. I went to Bravo to read comments and most of them are really hurtful.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I think Joyce shouldn’t keep quiet. Brandi is now experiencing the world as the rest of us do…with consequences. It really hasn’t truly helped Brandi when the targets of her toxic behavior keep quiet. Brandi went after Joyce, who apparently didn’t get the memo that Brandi can say and do whatever she wants to you, but you may not do the same because …because why? Can’t remember, but if Joyce Did get the memo, I’m glad he she. Is ignoring it. Keep Talking Joyce™

  7. not THAT Jill™ says:

    Watching Brandi fall from the ladder she climbed upon is not as much fun as I hoped it would be. She is sooo good at getting people to feel sorry for her. Every single thing that happened on the show to cause this backlash against her is her own fault. You can see in the first couple of episodes how she feels so smug about her new found fame. I’m sure she thought she would be at the top of the fan fave list-she didn’t count on Joyce having a mouth. I haven’t read anything from Joyce about Brandi that we didn’t see happen on the show. She is speaking the truth as far as I can see. Brandi is struggling with Joyce -she needs Joyce to STFU and stop ruining her game. I hope Joyce keeps it up b/c this is what Brandi needed-she needed to get knocked down a few pegs and get a hold on herself. Of course she won’t take accountability for anything-she will blame everyone in the world and cry victim because it’s all she knows…I’m over it. It’s boring and not fun to watch. Oh and the pic of her grandma flipping the bird-pure Klass-Brandi style Klass!!!

  8. TexasTart says:

    NMD that is the #TRUTH and I must say a very respectful way to lay it all out regarding Brandi’s behavior.

  9. missusmc says:

    Brandi’s the Miley Cyrus of reality TV- she’s just an angry little girl rebelling and acting out against the world. Problem is, she’s 40 ( and has no discernible talent, unlike Miley). She’s hijacked my favorite franchise and changed it from the fabulocity side of Beverly Hills to white trash antics normally found on a VH1 reality show. After a trying season of New Jersey, I was so looking forward to Beverly Hills. Now I’m hesitant to even hold out for New York- if trash tv is what bravo is going for now, I’m going to have to quit for good.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Brandi WISHES she was the Miley Cyrus of reality. B would take that as a huge huge huge compliment. By the way, I love 21 y.o. Miley.

      • I love Miley too! She has real talent and isn’t an idiot. She has more real talent in her pinky than Brandi could hope for and she is only 21 and has more money than any of us will ever see and she earned it. I am stanning for Miley, lol!!! PARTY IN THE USA!@!!!

      • missusmc says:

        I agree that Miley’s talented, so it probably wasn’t a fair comparison. I think Miley’s “Schtick” is getting old. Like, she got naked and stuck her tongue out, and got attention, so that’s what she’s going with now. (Side note: Miley’s voice is much better suited for country music. Google the backyard sessions, and you’ll see miley performing the most amazing cover of Jolene. But I digress…) I think Brandi got attention for dressing provocatively, drinking a lot, and having no filter, so she’s going with it. Both Miley and Brandi get attention for their “stunts,” so that’s why I compared the two. Most of Miley’s attention lately (end of year countdown lists, etc) have more to do with her antics than her talent. The difference, of course, is Miley has talent to fall back on, while Brandi had someone cowrite her book and I still had a hard time following what she was trying to say…

        • LaineyLainey says:

          It’s ok, missusmc, it’s your opinion you’re completely entitled to it! I just don’t agree that they are comparable. Now, if in the future, like 20 years from now, Miley becomes an inebriated, verbally limited, uneducated, low class, no talent, triflin’ oaf…then maybe, MAYBE then, would I compare the two.

          I have heard Miley’s country songs…and you are right!!! she’s good! In years to come, she will have more sophistication and control…for now she has the pitch, style and Power. It will be fun to watch her evolve as an artiste.

          • missusmc says:

            I hate all the Miley bashing that’s going around, so I feel a little bad about the comparison. I’m just glad there was limited internet and no smartphones when I was 20 or 21! I wish women would understand that bad behavior/trashiness may get you attention, but the wrong kind. Miley probably will learn it, because she’s young. Brandi should have learned it but never did. She may be 40 but she has the maturity of someone half her age!

        • chismosa™ says:

          I can’t STAND Miley’s speaking voice. And her buck teeth that she shaved down

  10. ladebra says:

    Great blogs NMD and HH. And I like that cloud!

    Ok, I’m going to hell for this, but hahahahaa

  11. ladebra says:

    Alright , I hate my iPad. Ville damnit.

    • California35 says:

      Ugh 😦 i don’t want to say that i hate mine, but lately i keep getting annoyed when i use it for the blog 😦
      What problem are you having?

      • ladebra says:

        It’s the auto-correct, and I hate to disable it, cause my little fat fingers really do need help. But if I want to type ville, and iPad thinks it should be vile, it’s annoying lol.

        But at the same time, I type Vyle, and my iPad corrects it to VyleKyle all on it’s own rofl.

  12. Pghemtchick says:

    Great assessment, NMD! And great recap, HH!

    VV, nice find with Kim no longer following Brandi and now following Joyce! I had to goto the twitterverse as soon as I read your comment. That’s an interesting twist especially after the support last week. Wonder what’s changed

    • California35 says:

      That is the thing with Brandi. She is loosing everyone! The. Instead of feeling sad, embarrassed, apologetic, quiet, and aware, she gets mad and loud and offensive…therefore losing more people. NMD’s blog was great. It is not them, it is her, but she doesn’t see it.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Wow, I did not know about Kim no longer following Brandi. Must of been a late comment on yesterday’s blog.

      The plot thickens……………………..

    • kit9 says:

      I wouldn’t read much into who is following who. Some have it automatically set to follow whoever follows you and might unfollow because they’re sick of the traffic, etc

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I followed Alex MCcord for about a week and then unfollowed because her multiple daily tweets were mindless tweets about ” fashion”…I found her tweets boring, which is too bad because as a fired housewife, she could have had some interesting and unique things to say about Reality.

        • BB says:

          Alex does have some very interesting things to say about reality TV on her vlog she does every week.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I agree, I like her vlogs, too. But not her tweets. I do like HER a lot, just not her tweets! I’m not too interesting myself on twitter!!! Need to find my twitter legs. I have managed to piss off a couple of people…that did not take too long. Nothing too horrible, but I was surprised how reactionary twitter can be. LOL

            • Orson says:

              I just wish she’d give up on the microphone on the videocamera and use one that clips on to her blouse. That would eliminate the echo.

    • VV™ says:

      Yes, Kim used to follow Brandi. Not sure when she dropped her, must have been recently. I checked Kim’s list a few weeks ago looking for a particular tweeterer. I noticed then she didn’t follow Lisa ( not a shocker ) but also she didn’t follow any of the two new HWs.

      Brandi tweeted Camille days ago, Camille replied then days later Yofo tweeted Camille, Camilled replied to then Yofo started following Camille.
      I don’t trust those two and together even less.

    • Powell says:

      Well dang that was fast. Unless Twitter unfollowed her. My acct unfollowed people twice and I had to follow again but I haven’t had that happen for quite a while.

    Good morning!
    I hope you had a wonderful Xmas 🙂
    I have been trying to catch up on all the blogs i missed. Very entertaining 🙂

    Lisa & Pandora still follow Brandi. She still follows them.

  15. not THAT Jill™ says:

    What does Brandi mean about having a rough year? Didn’t she have great things happen to her in 2013? A best selling book a new home-new fame and new money? One cast mate not playing along with her crap made her whole year rough? What kind of year does she think Adrienne had after Brandi blabbed her secret? We should feel sorry for Brandi b/c now it’s her turn in the hot seat? I don’t think so!!! I guess I should be happy that she has finally kind of admitted that she does in fact feel sorry for herself!

    • kit9 says:

      Remember when it was pretty much the two of us not liking her? Lol! I’m slogging thru her podcast right now and good god it’s a self pity fest!

      • not THAT Jill™ says:

        Who can forget!! We had a few others cartwheel and RR and Exit-but now it seems like she just turned everyone off…her blog comments are beyond mean-really bad. She still has a lot of twitter fans but it doesn’t seem to me that many of them watch the show or listen to her podcast-it’s like they love her but they can’t be bothered watching her-kind of funny!!!

        • Powell says:

          Did she put a spell on us? 😉

        • chismosa™ says:

          Ok but how can we put any trust into the blog comments – because isn’t Bravo and the blog interns on very specific – producer- directed guidelines on what comments to allow to post ???

          I don’t care one way or another but we always discuss the comments being covered up and deleted or allowed on there

      • Powell says:

        Ok kit. We saw the error of our ways. 😀

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yep, she surely did admit her victim thing. Feeling sorry for yourself is the first step into going into victim mode.

    • Powell says:

      Right JNNTJ. Cue the violins for Brandi.

  16. Amalfi says:

    I can see Carlton jumping on the Brandi bandwagon since she wants to jump in her pants from what I see.

    I don’t get understand all the Yolanda-love for Brandi, except for that only she paid attention to Yo during the Lyme disease thing. Loyalty or lack of choices? IDK

    Brandi is someone I really want to like. She was done wrong by Evil Queen LeAnn off camera and seemed was less well to do (always a sympathy builder) and was immediately attacked by two ugly stepsisters that of course we saw her as Cinderella and laughed off her naughty mouth as if we were in the presence of the popular girl your mom didnt want you hanging out with in high school because she drank and smoked pot.

    Aye aye aye. Brandi is still 17 (acting) and after a honeymoon period of fancy that, most women don’t have much patience for that kind of nonsense on a daily basis. Brandi is not so much shocking or offensive to me as she is just… tedious.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      My kids didn’t behave that way at 17. Neither did their friends. She’s becoming like pesky fly. Shoo fly!

    • Powell says:

      Amalfi doesn’t it justpiss you off that some of what LR said is true?

      • Amalfi says:

        Haha! Probably yes, Powell, if I read what Leann says. I feel like they are equally crazy, but I just have proof every week of Brandi’s actions because I am watching her show. LeAnn is just gross in a non-specific — how do the kids say — “that ho over there” way. Both are icky,

  17. Pghemtchick says:

    MoHadid has come to the rescue again. Sadly, missing swan is still Mia.

    • I think Mohamed’s true love is Lisa but he knows he can’t have her, lol! I loved the look on Yo’s face (even if it might be Bravo editing) when Mo was talking about how wonderful Lisa is in that preview!!

      • Powell says:

        Has Lisa known Muhamed longer than Muhamed was married to Yo?

        • IDK, I will go to the Google Machine and see what I can find!!

        • I can’t find it, google is cluttered with the whole hoanna kraps and brandi mixed in with mohamed and lisa….Yo and Mo married in 1994 for 8 years…so I don’t know. I know that the one episode maybe Brandi was prompting Yo that Lisa’s family wasn’t really “her” friends, which made is seem like Mo is Lisa’s friend first or above Yo…

          • Powell says:

            Ok. Thks. I just remember from Bachelorette Party Gate Lisa said Moh has known Pandi since she was young but now that I think of it the epi where Jason said that he is trying to get a job in NY, Lisa said they only came to the states cuz Pandi wanted to go to college there.

            • Pandi is 27 so that would make them coming here around 2003 but Lisa acted before that so they were here earlier than Pandi being in college, they may have lived here for awhile then gone back to England… Either way it seems that Lisa is closer to Mo than Yo, lol.

  18. not THAT Jill™ says:

    She says this is a present from her Vegas “husband”…expensive gift from a friend no? She will probably tweet that she’s just kidding but only after she gets a million tweets about it

  19. Excellent NMD. As I was reading I was holding my coffee cup up and I felt very British and felt the need to say “Hear, Hear, jolly good, I concur.” It could be that I just re-watched all the seasons of Downton Abbey too!!! But you said it!!! We are just not that into her!! Brandi it is you, not me!!!

  20. BB says:

    Update. My mom’s surgery went very well. They are keeping her overnight just as a precaution. I left her reading a book and getting ready to take a nap. Now I’m taking a nap. Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers and well wishes.

  21. VV™ says:

    Funny tweet by Camille.

    @TheRealCamilleG: On the first day of Christmas my ex love gave to me. 2 beautiful children. 1 bad divorce and 1 terrible first season on reality TV. Haha! 🎄

    Original Message:

  22. shamrockblonde says:

    Merry Christmas my loves!!! – hope you all had a great holiday and are enjoying yourselves! just before Christmas, where I work placed this site on the naughty list and restricted it from me, so I was unable to get to my second home!! NMD, thank you so very much for posting my Christmas wish to my beloved family – I love you all so very much!

    NMD, I loved your opening line!! it IS Brandi!! – no matter what life throws at you, no matter what happens, YOU have the ability to determine how you will handle it – not being able to stop bad things happening is one thing, but you are the master of your actions, the one who sets the pace for your response to it – mrs. peabody also went through what Brandi went through, but chose to handle it with grace and courage – my daughter also went through that and she too chose to handle it with grace and courage – and yes, maybe mrs. peabody and my daughter had a better support system than Brandi, maybe mrs peabody and my daughter had better life examples, but in the end, only they could choose the path they chose to walk – it was heart wrenching, it was hard, and it was lonely, but both made it through to the other side – Brandi has yet to make it out of that horrid tunnel – but that is on her – I don’t dislike her, mostly I pity her and I pray for her and for her sons – she needs to get back up, brush herself off and start moving forward – and the first step is to start getting her priorities in order – her boys come first – not the fame, not the money, not the attention and not the wine – everything she does, everything she says should be measured by how much it will affect them – every time – Brandi is still stuck on Brandi –

    *hugs my entire lynnfam really hard* – thanks for leaving the light on for me, and thanks again NMD for helping me get my Christmas message out in time!!!!

    • AZGirl says:

      Ugly just like Kanye.

    • Nancy says:

      WTH??? Am I missing something? Naked ladies with monster faces on them?
      These two are a match made in “heaven”.

      • Powell says:

        Hahahahaha Nancy Pants. 🙂 And my mom keeps wishing on a start that Kim won’t marry Kanye. I keep telling her ” she’s marrying him. You might as well accept it.”. 🙂 My mom was like Wendy Williams saying they won’t get married. When they announced they were I left WW a FB comment and told my mom, “sorry. But they are getting married”.

        • Powell says:

          “wishing on a star”

        • Nancy says:

          Hi Powell…I read that Kanye wants to move to Paris with Kim and their baby
          but Kris isn’t too happy with that news. I truly feel sorry for their daughter.
          Could you imagine?

          • Powell says:

            If they want to move to Paris they should move to Paris. Kris will get over it. Maybe Paris will be good for Kanye cuz for all the musical gifts and personal gifts he seems very unhappy. He’s seemed unhappy since his mother passed away.

            • Nancy says:

              I forgot that he just lost his mother. I should be giving him a break.

              • Powell says:

                I’m sorry he lost his mom too. She passed on maybe 4, 5 yrs ago and no matter how long I suspect that doesn’t matter. But that’s no excuse for him acting like he does. Fighting paparazzi. Telling them don’t look at him. Don’t talk to him. His behavior is ridiculous. The paps need to ignore him all together then he’ll wonder why they don’t want to bother w/him anymore. He’s saying stupid things like Kim is better than the First Lady. A a recent concert he seemed like he was giving a lecture instead of a concert. Those people should have asked for their money back. I used to like him but he’s changed and not for the better. He’s regressed instead of progressed.

                • Nancy says:

                  No doubt about it he’s a “tad” strange.

                • Amalfi says:

                  He seems angry and feels no doubt a bit guilty (his mom dies getting plastic surgery he paid for – at her request) but doesn’t seem to have many coping skills to deal with tragedy or even mere frustration in his life. The megalomania is just a symptom.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Powell I thought of you when I saw this !!!!!!


      • Amalfi says:

        It is actually fairly well regarded and has work displayed at MoMA, although he is also commercially available and designed some of Kanye’s album cover art. But like him or hate him, I am pretty sure I still can’t stand the overdone and irrelevant Kardashians and their prey.

      Oooh. That’s fugly.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      It is not remotely aesthetically pleasing. From the size to the illustration to the detailed brush strokes (technique.)

  23. AZGirl says:

    Thank you NMD for the great blog. What a hot mess Brandi is. She needs to stay off twitter. I am starting to feel very sad for those boys. Either their Mother is drunk on T.V. or the step-mother is getting her drink on 24/7.

  24. Powell says:

    OT but what Mrs. Peabody said upthread made me think about what I saw on The View yesterday and maybe some of you have heard about this. Actor Jason Patric you may remember him from The Lost Boys, Speed Cruise Control. He has a baby boy whose mother he dated for some time. They had their son but eventually he broke up w/her. After he broke up w/her she now refuses to let him see his son. His 1st call to her after the breakup she told him “talk to my attorney”. He hasn’t seen his son for 40 weeks I believe he said. He showed a piece of a video w/his son & the ex and the ex is talking to their son showing him a playbill of a play Jason did that has his pic on it and she’s saying to their son “where is daddy”. He said there are many of those types of videos where he is referred to a daddy by the ex. They went to court. He showed those videos and get this. The judge is calling Jason an “in-vitro donor” & granted the mother a restraining order. I don’t understand what some Judges are doing on the bench today. Judges blaming young woman who committed suicide for being raped then letting the man found guilty out of jail; the Judge that let the boy off the hook for drinking and driving and killing someone cuz he’s from a rich family, calling it “Affluenza”; Judges letting people off throughout the country on some made up justification. The Judge can’t see that the ex has all along acknowledged Jason as the father but now that Jason “Is Just Not That Into You” any longer that she’s using their son as a tool to get back at him is shameful. I understand when people w/kids breakup, divorce, separate it’s tough and sad for the person that was left and is the primary caregiver of the child but unless there is abuse why would a parent keep the child away from the other parent? It’s not right. The child is the one that is truly hurt.

    • mrs peabody says:

      there’s many ways to get back at a spouse who has cheated on you and you end of raising your kids alone (regardless if you left him or he left you), the one I chose was to have a happy life without him and I have. I forgave him along time ago for being so mean to me. I met and married a man who I have loved for a quarter of a century now, he is the nicest man, best father to my boys and my bestie. I got my revenge, I had a happy life. It’s too bad Brandi never grew up and learned this. You don’t have to destroy yourself and possibly put the custody of your children in danger, you just need to grow up! And I don’t understand why one parent feels they have the right to keep their children from knowing their other parent (unless it is dangerous for the child that is), what gives them that right to do that for no reason other than they are hurt. I don’t think they are very good parents and I wish the judges would look at that when deciding where the children should go. If you are not going to share then you shouldn’t have the custody.

      • Powell says:

        Mrs P you totally got your revenge. I believe the saying “Living Well is The Best Revenge”. And marrying a sweet man is just the icing on the cake. Your asshole ex gave you the gift of your sweet husband.

        • Powell says:

          And I like when you break up w/someone and the next time they see you you look hot. Your is in a new style. You have on figure flattering clothes. Your makeup is flawless. And you carry yourself in a new confidence w/a glow surrounding you. Take that asshat! 🙂

        • LaineyLainey says:

          True dat,^^^^

  25. shamrockblonde says:

    Powell – my heart goes out to the child in that case – again, it sounds like this woman put herself and her wishes ahead of the welfare of the child – every decision she makes should start with the same question – how will this affect my child – and as long as the other parent truly loves and cares for their child, and as long as there is no chance for abuse, either mental or physical, then it is always best for the child to have both parents in their lives – it is never about who the child likes more or at least it should not be – but for some, the thought that their child might prefer the other parent is enough for them to make it impossible for the other parent to see their child – this will not work – my ex son-in-law is an asshat – but he loves his daughters and sees them every weekend, and I wouldn’t want it any other way – as for Judges on the bench today – don’t get me started –

    • Powell says:

      I’m glad your granddaughters see their father. You’re right. If there’s no abuse and nothing but love kids should have both parents. I just hope before their son can understand that Patrick’s ex does some soul searching and asks herself those questions you laid out.

    This little beautiful girl from Russia could be a huge spoiler in Sochi.

    I meant to send this before, NMD, it only works for me on iPhone and iPad (not kindle and I don’t think any android system but not sure). To post the tweet click the three dots … And pick copy link.

  28. Isn’t Brandi’s BF the girl from Dr. Drew’s Intervention show? Ginnifer or something? (She was the girl in the bathroom with Kim at Sur on the finale of Season 2 and recently at the sex book chat.) Anyhoo…you would think her good friend would step in and tell her she is embarrassing herself AND her children. You can’t tell me there are kids in school with those boys whose mothers have forbidden them from befriending Brandi’s kids??? Yes, Eddie cheated on Brandi. BUT, you were having probs in your marriage! YOU INVITED OTHER WOMEN INTO YOUR BEDROOM TO SPICE IT UP! HELLO! You pretty much gave him permission to sleep around. And, YES, LeeAnn is the woman that slept with your husband. But in the end, all the trash talking just shows all of us you are not over Eddie. Like others have mentioned, I pity Brandi, but there is no excuse for her bad behavior. None. If she was my daughter, I would haul her caboose to rehab faster than she could say F*ck You! My two cents!

    • Powell says:

      Hey Story. I hope you had a great Christmas. Yes Gennifer, Jennifer is the BFF. Supposedly knows the signs of addiction but we haven’t seen her say anything on camera. Maybe she has or maybe she doesn’t think Brandi has a problem. And no she’s not over Eddie. I bet she’d take him back.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Its a very odd friendship. I don’t get it. If I was in recovery I don’t know that I could hang out with someone like Brandi …..

        There has to be more to this.

    • Nancy says:

      I’ve been waiting for Dr Drew to get involved as Jen is totally enabling Brandi.
      I think she’s a fame-ho herself.

  30. Katie (aka kats2) says:

    Standing O for the blog and comments!!! Dead on as usual!

    You know there is something wrong when. . . .

    1. Your actions make the cheating ex husband and cheating new wife look like the normal, stable best parents in the situation.

    2. A beauty queen can put you in your place without any help from a pageant mom or coach.

    3. The person on the show in AA thinks she’s not the only one who needs professional help.

    4. You buy a bathing suit with a religious symbol on it and when no one notices or cares you point it out when the cameras are rolling because you need attention.

    5. You get naked on camera, take baths on camera in front of your friends and pretend your BI all while the camera are rolling because you need attention.

    6. You talk about absurd sex acts that this alone should be enough to have your kids removed from your home!

    7. Every chance you get you tell people “you are a great mom” and you are a great friend” – no great moms or friends I know EVER label themselves with these title. They just are and that’s why we love and protect them!

    8. Your families idea of quality time over the holidays is giving the finger to strangers because they told the truth about your poor little Brandi who brought it all on herself.

    The family should be getting her personal help. Maybe Dad should consider that how offensive he felt about her risque Oscar dress is how other people are feeling about the vile crap his daughter has spewed this season. Ok K get back on-track –

    9. You talk about all these men in your life but you can’t find a date to bring to all these dinner parties?

    10. The only way you can feel comfortable in your own skin is if you drink way too much and find someone to pick on.

    Ta Da I got to 10!!!!

    Watching the re-run of the (another) dinner from hell!

    A question to Yolo the hostess:

    What do you do when one of your guests is making dinner very uncomfortable for the rest of your guests?

    • Nancy says:

      Tell your husband how wonderful he is.

    • Powell says:

      Pull them aside and tell them to knock it off or they can leave. If they go back to the table and start at it again give them one more chance by saying at the table “what did we just talk about”. If they do it a 3rd time embarrass them at the table by telling them to leave. In the future there will be no more invites.

      • Katie (aka kats2) says:

        I agree. Plus, if we are HW’s in this scenario we should hire a bouncer to do the dirty work for us at our dinner parties.

    • Nancy has the likely answer, Powell has thew correct one 😉

  33. Powell says:

    Ya’ll know I don’t watch but just flipping channels and a guy I remember from Millionaire Matchmaker s1 or 2 was in Patti’s office w/his wife. He’s also a dad. What I find funny is that the wife isn’t a Patti match. I wonder if she counts that as a match?

    • LaineyLainey says:

      She was taking credit, saying something like “he used the techniques I taught him to find a wife!”

      • Powell says:

        Yeah Lainey she did say that. I’m sorry you have to leave LaineyGirl. I hope you had the best time. Safe travels back home.

    And there it is… The ending of a merchandise blowout push and show promo (imo):
    It’s all quackers….

    “In a statement, the network cited its “core values” of “inclusion and mutual respect” to explain why “we reacted so quickly and strongly.” “While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the ‘coarse language’ he used and the misinterpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would ‘never incite or encourage hate.’ We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold.”

    The statement then offered some wiggle room: “But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family… a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness,” the statement said. “After discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family.”” (Source:

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Ratings will go wayyyyyyy up, I predict. From the curious first time viewers

      • Powell says:

        I believe they will too. I like the family. And hey us the viewers don’t know what anyone we watch believes in. And whatever people we watch believe in they just need to remember that they can’t always say what they believe or how they feel just cuz they want to say it. Sometimes you have to keep your mouth shut. We’ve seen this over and over again on tv shows, Presidents, BPs, actors, comedians. There have been many foot in mouth moments.

    • BB says:

      IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. EVERY TIME. ALL THE TIME. What a bunch of hypocrites A&E and Cracker Barrel are. Not Phil Robertson. He’s not backed down or apologized. I may not believe what he believes, but I admire him for not coming up with some lame apology that he doesn’t mean. I have no respect for the executives of A&E, who have been showing Duck Dynasty marathons all week. If they were so OFFENDED, then they should have taken a real stand. Rant over.

      • I wonder what kind of bonus the “genius” that figured how to spin it to be “But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views”. ….received…

      • Pghemtchick says:

        And that’s right it’s about the green.
        He makes his statement to a magazine with A&E knowledge.
        GLAAD lobbies against it and meets for hours. Even tho this timeline is suspect as to the actual hours (east coast vs west coast). Is it possible they were just a pawn?
        Suspension and fan mobilization to stand w/ Phil.
        News media Gold! Everyone’s talking everyone’s coming out of the woodwork to opine.
        Walmart’s start selling Duck Dynasty (A&E owned) gear like hot cakes at the Sunday social.
        Cracker Barrel removes only Duck Dynasty merchandise not Duck Commander (duck dudes owned). Then oops it’s back. Now walmart shoppers know where they can get merchandise and a hot cake!
        Oh no. The shopping season (for full price anyway) is over! Guys, it’s cool. We forgive him he can film!

        Seems like a transparent money grab to me by A&E not to mention all the new viewers as all we’ve heard on the news for 9 days is duck duck duck.

  35. Keeponrockingme says:

    I’m really curious what Brandi is going to bring out at the reunion. I’ve never been a big fan of hers, but she’s acted like a complete, jealous mess this season (thusfar). She’s made more than a few comments about Joyce: slammed her when she tried to relate about losing her dog, the whole pool scene, the name calling, the comments about her being jealous of Gigi, and then her antagonizing Joyce and her husband about the baby comments. Either Brandi has hit an all-time low, or there’s more to this story. Joyce seems to be “normal” so I’m inclined to think Brandi is just crazy jealous.

  36. Nancy says:

    Someone should tweet Brandi to tell her to read NMD’s blog today.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        I judge accounts by the first followers. I should say “Troll” accounts. How else would the first 2-3 people “know” to follow that person? The first ones have some very anti-LeAnn tweets that could border hateful. Why any housewife would actively encourage or interact with an obvious hate account, I’ll never understand. That goes for all housewives not just Brandi.

          He is light skinned as well. He gets a reddish tan in the summer. I get very dark! He jokingly calls me ” black Irish”. Which apparently is a real thing-my eyes glazed over when he was explaining about the Moors so I’ll take his word for it!

          • Exit4 says:

            I should probably add that I have dark hair and green eyes….I’m not a light skinned, light haired person. Well-until I color my hair! Lol! I’m also part German as well (on my moms side). None of us have light European features.

          • chismosa™ says:

            My friends call me black Irish just because they’re all Irish and I’m darker – but to be a true blue black Irish I think you need dark eyes AND hair. (Colin Ferrell- ish? But maybe darker tone of skin)

            Dark hair and green eyes – my dream ! How beautiful you must be !

            no – Franco was the dictator in Spain that made the country KooKoo. Movie Pan’s Labyrinth (one of my fave all time movies) shows it.
            It’s ok I get what you mean.
            Now I want ropa vieja – my favorite Cuban dish lol.

    Hi all – NMD thanks for the letter – LOVE IT.

    Today’s my parents’ 48th anniversary so all I’ve been doing is saying silent prayers to God above that they make it to 50. 🙏🙏🙏

    Vv I asked you something on the end of the previous blog about twitter I’ll c & p it here so maybe you can help me out on it —

    ASHY – I dvr’d the Carlton dinner episode and the episode after that today so I have to rewatch 🙄 🙄 🙇🙇🙇 to find this Joyce / Brandi informing Lisa stuff. I want to see it !

    Ok now going to catch up on comments – !

    • VV™ says:

      Are you talking about the follow un follow?
      Not sure exactly. If you start following somebody, it shows on your “Following” list at the very top (first one on the list). I don’t know what happens when you unfollow somebody and decide to follow them again. Some here say they go back to where they were originally listed ( EX. if they were in 18th place, they go back 18th place). In my case, I stopped following Jac Laurita one year and started following her again about a year later. Her name appeared first one on my list. Not sure if time played anything in the placement. So, she didn’t go back to her original placement.

      🚨🚨🚨 I do not follow Jac anymore 🚨🚨🚨

      • chismosa™ says:

        Thank you ! So it IS indeed in order. You can tell who Kim Dicks has started following very recently, etc.

        Thank you!

        Love the sirens. I just read ⬆️about Barf. I’m heading to the toilet 🚽😒😒

    OMG with Brandi. First of all-what’s wrong with being ambitious? Last time I checked that wasn’t a bad quality. Second-marrying or having a relationship with a movie producer doesn’t a career make. Ask Sophia Coppola who had a huge assist in ruining what is arguably the best movie franchise ever made. Although Nick Cage softens the blow. Third-what makes it impossible for people to believe that Joyce (or Hoyce as they’re calling her-which is a little offensive) doesn’t actually love him? And he lives her? Did she marry Eddie for reasons other than love? How’d that work out? Someone tweet that to her! Lol!

    There was a big discussion on the FB page about this. Is there something more happening with her then meets the eye? Meaning something mentally. I don’t know-and if there is I can sympathize with that-but in a way it feels too calculated as opposed to completely impulsive at this point. I don’t know.

    • not THAT Jill™ says:

      The only thing wrong with Brandi is she needs people to pay attention to her every minute. The way she acts is gross and immature and so friggen mean. She doesn’t have a mental problem she has a problem being nice and sober! She would love to know that people think there maybe something mentally wrong with her b/c then she could have a whole new group of people to say F off to. She is an attention seeking famewhore-not a mental case. Stupid and drunk doesn’t mean you have a mental problem it just makes you look like a jerk on national TV! It’s like people are trying to make her a victim of something-she is a victim -of her own stupidity and her blind ambition to be famous. I didn’t see anyone talking about her having any sort of problem last season and believe me she was just as jerky then. She is going “crazy” b/c people are calling her out on her crap-too bad.

      • not THAT Jill™ says:

        Oh and Exit-even though it seems like it-I’m not directing my comment AT you-or yelling at you. After reading my comment it is kind of aggressive…Brandi brings out the worst in me!!!

      • chismosa™ says:

        Ashy I agree with you on Brandi – that’s why despite all this kookiness- I still find KKB as a true blue mental case 😷 while Brandi just has personality issues. MANY.

        (I still don’t like Hoysa) ✳️

        • Exit4 says:

          You may be right….but Joyce might end up being a good addition-give her time! 🙂

          • not THAT Jill™ says:

            I have no problem with Joyce-she hasn’t really done anything for me to like or not like her on the show. The way she is handling this Brandi thing makes me lean more to liking her though…

            • chismosa™ says:

              Yes – I can’t remember who it was you said you just found annoying for no real reason- just annoying in general (maybe lady Gaga? Or a HW?)
              That’s how I feel of Joyce. I’m team her husband – as someone coined it the other day. Though I hate “baby baby baby” ….

              It’s all good.

              I have a theory that by the time the reunion films/ airs, Brandy will decide to finally “OWN” what she did as wrong. Just to turn tides ? 🌊🌊🌊🌊

              Ps I’m going to watch the Carlton dinner again. I need to pinpoint when Brandi then called Joyce. 🔦🔎📞⏰

          • chismosa™ says:


        • not THAT Jill™ says:

          I think Kelly is totally mental. She needs some intense therapy b/c we witnessed a real break down with her during Scary Island. Brandi on the other hand is just a really stupid drunk. She said some really mean crap about Joyce while bombed and now instead of “OWNING” her crap she is making excuses and blaming Joyce for every bad thing that has ever happened to her (except the end of her marriage-that honor will always belong to leann Rimes). I’m over it. People can analyze the crap out of her but the bottom line is she is immature and attention starved-perfect things to be while on a reality show or so she thought. The comments on her Bravo blog are out of control-he fan base is slowly turning on her and she is in panic mode-so what does she do? She attacks Joyce more-calling out her marriage.

      • Nancy says:

        Hi Jill…She’s actually passing up a great opportunity as she could go to the
        Betty Ford clinic (or some other rehab) and become an advocate.
        It sure worked for Robert Downing Jr.

        • Nancy says:


        • Exit4 says:

          RDJ actually has some talent. That helps. Brandi is a pretty face-or was until she injected the crap out of it.

          But according to Brandi-rehab is not fun.

        • not THAT Jill™ says:

          Hey Nancy..she would never go to rehab-she doesn’t have a drinking problem she has a drinking solution…and rehab isn’t fun!!

          • Nancy says:

            Ooop’s I forgot about that. Bravo should give her an ultimatum…rehab or fired.
            This is the thing about people getting forced into a 12-step program. We call this getting in through the back door. These people can’t argue that their lives are getting
            better while sober and in time something clicks in their brain so it’s not a lost cause
            with her IMHO. It’s very scary to get sober as you have to go back and see what
            they have done with their lives and it usually not very pretty esp if you have children.

          • Exit4 says:

            See Jill? We posted almost the same thing at the same time. It’s like one mind! 🙂

  43. not THAT Jill™ says:

    Here’s another tweet from the genius…she will be your friend if you are poor but not if you are ugly…

  44. VV™ says:

    Just wondering if Kyle and Brandi are insinuating that Lisa buys followers. I’m not surprised that Kyle replied her friend Brandi. It’s typical Kyle. She’s as predictable as they get.
    #kyleisnotbobbifisher #hermovesarepredictable #badchessplayer

    • boston02127 says:

      And Kyle has those egg followers, so she should know.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Kyle only replied a question.
      IMO Brandi was trying to insinuate that Joyce is buying followers . I don’t think it has nothing to do with Lisa.
      For obvious reasons Brandi has realized that her feud with Lisa will finish her off so she is not focusing on Joyce as her main target and will likely downplay her feud with Lisa.
      On the other hand I think that Kyle simply answered a question and didn’t even know why Brandi was asking.

      • VV™ says:

        Kyle will not throw shade at Joyce. The fact Kyle replied “someone was talking about it the other night” implies to me the target was Lisa or Joanna Kruppa maybe? The fact Kyle has a beef with Lisa, I’m inclined to think its her. IMO.

    Is this Tamra’s lame attempt at getting invited to a BH wedding?

    Good morning. 🙂
    The week flew by so fast.

  47. Cartwheels says:

    Brandi is so stupid that she doesn’t even understand that by slamming Joyce’s marriage she is also slamming all her other cast mates, maybe with the exception of Kyle.
    Kyle married a professional guy but by no means wealthy, he made his own fortune when already married to her, whether it was through her Hilton connection or not, the fact is that he was not rich and neither was her first husband.
    Kim married a billionaire and her kids are probably set for life (at least kid #2&3)
    Yolanda married Mohammed when she was nothing but an unknown model so she married up
    Lisa married a rich Kenn Todd and even though they have been married for 30 years the fact is that Lisa married a guy who already owned several bars.
    Was Carlton and heiress? I have read articles about her being a porn actress so needless to say that she also married up.
    Brandi herself was a plain and unknown make up artist who married a somewhat famous B celebrity so she married up as well.
    For Brandi to imply that Joyce married just because the guy was a millionaire just highlight more and more how jealous she is that Joyce enjoys the perks of being a wealthy woman and doesn’t have to act like a train wreck (ala Brandi) to fund her lifestyle.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I didn’t know that about all the other wives – interesting.
      Thanks for that layout.

      And Carlton- it wasn’t actual hardcore porn- it was “soft porn” which I believe is not real actual sex?
      I don’t know you’d have to ask Jill not that Jill about that.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I guess , I only read porn so not sure which one was it but I believe that if Carlton had money on her own right we will all know by now.
        Brandi will never cope with the harsh reality that she had everything on her hands to secure her financial future for a while and now she blew it, I don’t see her next book doing as well as the first and I am not sure what will she do after Bravo HW is over.
        Unless is a gig for tampon strings I just do not see what else what she do.

    • Powell says:

      Yeah like I said upthread Brandi married a soap opera actor that could take care of her. Just as all the ladies married someone they thought would be a good provider and would take care of them not just financially but also emotionally. She acts like it’s such a revelation or a big whoop why security would be some of the reasons why Joyce married her husband.

    • VV™ says:

      Lisa married Todd when she was 21. She has been acting and attending drama school since she age 9. She had some moderate success. Ken owned “one” bar named Corks when he met Lisa not several bars. Lisa and Ken “together” had owned 30 restaurants. The mega success in the restaurant industry came after the marriage.

      Good for you ! Happy birthday to your son (it’s a son right? Don’t want to mess up gender) –
      We keep up tree until the epiphany but I don’t think many do that. Have a great day. I’m jelly for the warm weather. ☀️☀️

    • Powell says:

      LOL AZGirl. 🙂 Happened Birthday AZSon1. So what did he get for his BD?

    Good morning everyone. Gets what’s on? The original Planet of the Apes is on Encore. 🙂

    • kit9 says:

      I love this! I saw it as a kid the first time. Then watching it years later as an adult, I saw where they crashed landed and said, “Holy crap, they landed in Lake Powell!” lol!

  50. Powell says:

    So everyone what is Brandi ‘s overall goal? Cuz she’s not getting her own show.

    • TexasTart says:

      Good question. She has no obvious goals other than to possibly have the largest collection of what she perceives as “haters”?!
