Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” by BB

Carlton:  She, her husband David, and her mother in law Gloria go to a store called Hustler so Carlton can get some vulgar outfits to model for David in their new sex room.  Who takes their mother in law to a cheesy store, models the clothes in front of her and then gives her a lap dance?  Carlton, that’s who.  She seems to be trying for the shock factor with us viewers.  I’m not shocked, just totally turned off.  Poor Gloria.  She’s stuck with Carlton as the wife of her son and the mom of her grandkids.    Later there is a scene with her contractor discussing having a stage so Carlton and her nanny can dance for her husband.  I’m assuming she wants her nanny to participate, she keeps alluding to it and groping her.  Workplace sexual harassment anyone?

Yolanda:  The anniversary lunch between Yolanda and David doesn’t seem very romantic.  Maybe David couldn’t take time from his very busy and important schedule to have a romantic candlelit dinner, I dunno.  He gave her a card and seemed nervous that Yolanda may not approve of what he has written.  He’s good at writing music, but not lyrics.  I kept expecting Yolanda to interrupt and correct him while he was reading it to her.  Yolanda gives him a book of pictures of her that are for his eyes only.  Yolanda is doing whatever it takes to keep her marriage exciting because, according to her, once it’s dead, it’s dead.  It ain’t coming back.  In her 20s, a psychic told her she wouldn’t meet her love until she was 42 years old (when she met David).  I’m guessing Yolanda’s kids love hearing her say repeatedly that it’s David, and not their dad, who is the love of her life.

Lisa:  Lisa and Ken are outside with their dogs.  Lisa is cutting roses.  She tells Ken she thinks that losing Chica has sent Brandi over the edge and she’s not happy with Lisa nagging her about her behavior all the time.  Ken thinks Brandi needs a boyfriend.  This seems to be the theme for Brandi this week, since she’s already said she feels like a third wheel when everyone else has a mate.  Lisa will be hosting a dinner at Sur so everyone can get a fresh start, and tells Ken she’s invited Martin and Mohammed to make Joyce feel more comfortable since she knows both of them.   The dinner will include the Dream Team (Lisa, Brandi and Yolanda), plus Ken, Mohammed and his fiancé Shiva, Martin, Joyce and Michael.  No Kim, Kyle or Carlton.

Kim:  Kim and her son Chad watch a video of Kingsley while he’s away at the trainers learning how to be a dog.  Kim’s son tries to explain to Kim how Kingsley seems happy just being a dog and not her baby.  Kim explains how she’s latched on to Kingsley since her kids are leaving and going their own way.   We later seem Kim pursuing other activities by letting someone drive her around the track in a race car.  Note that Kim was NOT behind the wheel.  I guess they didn’t have enough insurance coverage to go that far.

Kyle:  Kyle is doing a fundraiser fashion show for Children’s Hospital of LA.  Her daughters will be walking the runway, as well as Joyce and Ivette (current Queen of the Universe) and Brandi and her friends Jennifer and Etirsa.  Brandi doesn’t like it when Joyce launches into her Spanish (like she did when she meets Jen).  Brandi and Joyce can’t find anything small enough to wear.  As Kyle says, they need a cheeseburger with their dresses.  They are having problems with the size zeroes and double zeroes.  Kyle wears a size four so she’s considered a plus size model by Beverly Hills standards.  I would hate to be under that kind of pressure to conform to other people’s standards of beauty.

real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-4-what-planet-does-brandi-glanville-live-onSur:  The dinner at Sur turns out to be a back and forth “you’re stupid, no, you’re stupid” between Brandi and Joyce.  Brandi starts it off by telling Joyce their two mutual acquaintances can’t stand Joyce and talk bad behind her back.  Joyce calls Brandi a racist and a bully.  Lisa and Yolanda try to shush her.  Joyce will not be shushed.  According to Joyce, the dream team (Lisa, Yolanda and Brandi) are used to getting their way and everyone has let them get away with it, but she’s not going to.  The men try to do the man thing and gloss over everything.  All the men except for Michael.  I kind of like that Michael is taking up for Joyce.  I don’t think Ken would let someone treat Lisa like Joyce has been treated without saying something.  Yolanda does her “this is petty in the grand scheme of things” speech she does all the time.  That’s getting old.  You can tell Lisa is really over Brandi’s language and actions, but she’s not ready to totally call her on it – yet.  We all know it’s coming because Brandi has already told us she and Lisa are no longer friends.  From next week’s previews, looks like by the end of the dinner, Brandi will be playing the poor me victim card by having crying and leaving the dinner.   You know, my husband cheated on me (what three or four years ago?), my dog got lost, I’m poor, I don’t have a man, Joyce and her husband are bullying me, you don’t know how sucky my life is, Bravo producers are making me act like this, yada, yada, yada.

Whoever is blogging Vanderpump Rules will have to cover Lisa’s dinner from their point of view because I will not be watching.  No how.  No way.

  1. Happy New Year’s Eve

    I’m hoping to get off work early.

    • BB says:

      Happy New Years Eve to you too! I’m going to the store to buy some black eye peas for tomorrow. We’re having those and chicken and dumplings. Hope you get off work early.

      • auroracooper says:

        Isn’t that some kind of tradition? (The black eye peas) I wish my husband liked them, the spicier the better too!

        • Powell says:

          Hey Aurora. yes it is. And your supposed to put some of the dried peas in your wallet so that you will always have money. I do it every year. It works I always have a few bucks. Now if its the superstition/tradition or I’m so poor that I only have a few bucks I don’t know. 😉

      • Powell says:

        Get about 50 extra chairs out. Tell Mr. BB LynnFam is on the way. 😀

    • VV™ says:

      Same to you NMD!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi!! I have so much to do that I hope they don’t send me home early. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed and underinformed. Since I work part-time in the office, sometimes I’m not in the loop.

      • Powell says:

        Breath and relax Lainey. You had a wonderful trip w/LaineyGirl. Don’t let yourself even go there. :-). Guess what? The work will be there. It will get done.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Happy New Years Everyone.

    • I’m off in an hour. Gotta love a Boss who lets the whole office out early while he’s out of town already.
      HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MKVALLE and MelTheHound!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bet your Mom’s were so happy to miss out on a big party and get to hold their newborn. I know I would be thrilled.
      HAPPY NEW YEAR I hope 2014 is the year you make even more memories to fill your mind with happiness.

      Diana

  2. BB says:

    Happy Birthday to the two last minute tax deductions – MKValle and MelTheHound! Hope you both have a great day.

  3. TexasTart says:

    Woo Hoo! Happy Birthday MTH and MKValle! 😀

    Let me get it all on ice, and gather th confetti and noisemakers as this is a big one for Jeff. All the very best to you.

  4. chismosa™ says:

    Thank you BB for blogging —
    VPR- yuck I couldn’t get through that show and I loved the stuff like gallery girls, mismatched, etc. these idiots – no. Luckily I only watched when Lisa was on or the dinner party scenes.
    Loved Jax calling Joyce Latoya Jackson. And note: he referred to Joyce as a “Puerto Rican” so I’m not sure if he’ll get flack for that lol.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I don’t think he will because there was no emotional attachment to it, he was describing what he heard and didn’t meant it as a slam.
      Brandi OTOH meant it as a slam so IMO it became racial , “I need another drink or I will kill a Puerto Rican” was meant to insult Joyce, she could have easily said “I need a drink or I will kill a fake, or a poser, a drama queen, etc; but the fact that Brandi uses Joyce’s ethnicity when she means to slam her or insult her is pretty telling of her racial tendencies.
      Do I think Brandi is a racist? Using the old term, , with white hoods and member of the KKK, not she is not. Does she uses racial slurs to insult Joyce and now her husband? Absolutely, she might not know she is doing it but she does.
      Being stupid and ignorant are not exclusive of being racist or saying racist things IMO

      • chismosa™ says:

        Well let’s see now – in the group last night – who were American born women ? (Yes PR is sort of America :roll:)
        – even shiva is Persian — so Brandi had no Dicks sisters or anyone else there who was a basic run of the mill non- foreigner.
        Jmo. I said something else on my post downthread

        The girl has no filter. That’s how I take her.

        • Anne says:

          Puerto Rico has been an American territory since the late 1890s and anyone born there is an American citizen. I’m not sure exactly what you mean by “American born”, but if Joyce was born in Puerto Rico, then she is an American citizen.

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          Was that supposed to be an eye roll? I hope not.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Hi Chismosa,

          I am not sure what you mean about the people at the table being “American born”. Joyce is an American by birth and we know that Yolanda is also a naturalized citizen (I am unsure who else might hold dual citizenship- such as American and something else) .

          As an naturalized citizen myself , I don’t see myself as less than someone naturally born. To become a US citizen, I had have MY ENTIRE LIFE, held under close scrutiny (and rightly so) . I had to prove my worth and desire by having a basic knowledge of history, geography and civics that unfortunately some natural born citizens are obvious to. And while I accept that I could never be President, I will not accept being treated as a second class citizen ( I am not saying you have done that, I am speaking figuratively )

          Brandi’s ‘lack of filter’ has increasingly become displays of what in my opinion is Xenophobia where everyone who is culturally different from her is put into these little boxes she has created. And I say this as a person who isn’t overly politically correct or hypersensitive when it comes to these types of discussions.

          She married a ‘hot Cuban’
          She is banging an ‘angry Mexican’
          Joyce can’t swim because is is ‘black’
          Joyce’s name isn’t ethnic enough for her, so she gets to rename her Hoyce or Jaquelina
          Joyce can’t speak in Spanish even when she is requested by the dinner host to do so, because this isn’t fn Miami.
          Spanish speakers can’t speak Spanish in front of her because it’s a ‘club that she isn’t fn invited too’
          She is going to ‘kill a Puerto Rican’ .

          Brandi really needs to take a long hard look at herself.

        • chismosa™ says:

          To you all— ^^^ I should have said not native-English-speaking-stateside-born American ????

          Brandy was the outsider, culturally, at the table.

          Doesn’t excuse her starting up with Hoyce but I disagree that she’s racist. She just doesn’t keep her mouth shut about anything and uses the wrong words which are ALWAYS un-PC.

      • PJ says:

        I completely disagree about what Brandi said being a racial slur. I think that is being said just because people don’t like Brandi but I think labeling people like that is really unkind. Brandi says things she shouldn’t say but that does not make her a racist. The things Joyce and her husband say are far worse than anything Brandi says. I personally feel Joyce is really not a nice person but is arrogant and self righteous and I can’t stand her husband. I think Joyce jumped on the racist issue because she knew it would have the potential to destroy Brandi not because she really believes Brandi is racist. In my opinion doing something like that is truly ugly.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Thanks for your input, PJ. It’s always good to hear other opinions. But let me get this straight. So you think the unkind words about Brandi are not based on things we actually see and hear, i.e. things she says and does on the show, but they are “being said just because people don’t like Brandi.” You said something like that, If I’m misquoting you, my apologies. Then you go on to say that that you think Joyce is not nice and is arrogant and you can’t stand her husband. Not exactly the words of an admirer. So you don’t like Joyce?,….perhaps the things you say are not based on what Joyce says and does either, but solely as you say some of us here do to Brandi, perhaps your words are based on the fact that you simply do not like Joyce and as you said, you can’t stand her husband. So we’re all guilty of the same, based on what you wrote.

          I used to like Brandi a lot!! I was one of her biggest fans, until she started saying racist, xenophobic things on the show. I have no other way to judge her besides her behavior on the show. But I didn’t think she was racist because I didn’t like her. I started not liking her because she started acting like a bigot. If she stops with the racist talk, it would be a good start in winning back people. If she owned her mistakes instead of blaming others, that would be a REALLY GOOD START.

          • PJ says:

            What I said was that Brandi is being labeled a racist not because she is actually a racist but because people don’t like her; I believe that Brandi says unwise even stupid things but I do not believe she is a racist. Not liking Brandi is one thing labeling her a racist is another thing entirely. I’m not a fan I’m just giving my opinion as you are. I’m not going to say what I think Brandi should do or shouldn’t do, who am I after all. People say and do stupid or unwise things all the time but to label them with something that is so hurtful is in my opinion a really mean thing to do. Me not liking Joyce is not going to hurt Joyce, her marriage, her career or her family. Labeling Brandi as a racist can hurt her in every aspect of her life and I think that is wrong because I don’t think it’s accurate. I’ve had things said to me that could be taken as racist but I never had a fit about them because I realize people sometimes speak before they think and it doesn’t make them racist.

            I don’t like Joyce and am no admirer of her that is true, and I am basing my opinion of her on things she says and does. In my opinion the former beauty queen knew or thought she would not be popular with viewers this season so she looked over the competition so to speak and picked the weakest link to be at odds with. I think she picked Brandi and that Brandi played right into her hands. I think things went on off camera that we are not aware of. Brandi has no man to stand behind her and defend her so for a man to get into it with her making it two against one is vile in my opinion. It’s nice to have a man to stand by you but to have a man fight with a woman like that is not cool in my opinion.

            I wish Brandi would be smarter in the way she conducts herself but hopefully that is something she will learn in time. Joyce is in contrast very smooth in the way she conducts herself but is it real or is she playing to the cameras?

            So are you saying I can’t say I don’t like Joyce and then go on to defend Brandi in any way–am I understanding you correctly?

            • LaineyLainey says:

              YOU said (again) and i quote…”What I said was that Brandi is being labeled a racist not because she is actually a racist but because people don’t like her”

              its your opinion, but its not true for me. not true for me at all. i liked her a lot, a lot, a lot,…just ask anybody here,…and now i say she is a racist because of the racist comments she said on the show. so first i liked her and then i called her a racist. its not the way you described it above.

              i have grown to dislike her because of her racism.

              You did not understand me correctly. If i, in my original post said those words, (that you can’t like joyce, – from your last sentence…feel free to quote me. But you won’t quote me because I never said that or even thought it. My point was, you say people label Brandi as racist which is unkind, because they don’t like her (which isn’t true for me as I’ve attempted to explain twice now). My point is that from what you wrote, i think you make unkind comments about Joyce because you find her not nice, arrogant and you can’t stand her husband. i.e. you don’t like her. So what you accuse others of, you are guilty of as well. Saying unkind things about someone because you don’t like them.

              And I agree that accusing someone of being a racist can be potentially, as you say, destructive (destroying) so it would follow perhaps that Brandi herself might stop making racist comments. She needs to be more careful, because it is her own undoing by her own hand (or mouth as it is in this case). No one would have ever gone there with Brandi if SHE had never spoken the words that she spoke on camera. Because I was such a big fan, I was very disappointed. She is the truth cannon, and that was her truth. I get it. But, I don’t like her truth, and that’s ok, I don’t have to. she laughs all the way to the bank, and I sit here not laughing all the way to the bank.

              • PJ says:

                I’m not going to argue about this, but I stand by my feelings that saying “unkind” things and labeling someone with a label that can ruin a career are very different. No matter what you feel about Brandi I believe she and everyone has a right to earn a living and I don’t think she is a racist nor do I believe she deserves to have her career ruined. I’m not a fan but then again I am no longer a fan of this show or any of the cast. I would not wish to see a person unable to support themselves or their children and do not feel anyone deserves this, there is nothing that can be said to change my opinion on this issue.

                The first season of this show people loved Kyle and I didn’t because I saw something I didn’t like in her. By the second season the bloom was off the rose with Kyle. This season my feeling is that if it wasn’t for Brandi people would not be liking Joyce. I believe that unintentionally Brandi did Joyce a big favor and Joyce understands that and ran with it. I personally believe that there will be a shift in the opinion of Joyce but time will tell.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  I stand by words, too. and my opinion remains unchanged as well. I still say, that I liked her BEFORE she made racist remarks. I didn’t call her a racist because of any dislike toward her. I WAS A FAN. i ADMIT IT.

                  I agree again, Being labeled a racist is a horrible thing. Saying racist things on camera to give people a reason to call you a racist is a horrible thing. Lil John says “if you don’t start no sh!t, there won’t be no sh!t” She started it, unfortunately. Otherwise, this would not be a topic at all anywhere.

                  She hasn’t lost her job, PJ. I doubt that she will lose her job over this,…so I’m not going to sympathize about that yet, as it has not happned and I doubt it will. You can quote me on that. As you said, “Time will tell.”

                  • PJ says:

                    Actually Joyce was the one who called Brandi a racist on camera; it’s just my personal opinion but I think this was done on purpose to garner sympathy for herself and to gain fan support that I doubt she would otherwise have. In other words I think Joyce knew full well exactly what she was doing. I don’t see how anything Brandi said was racist. I once heard a famous Englishman say to an assistant ‘what are you Irish.’ It was meant as a derogatory remark, like saying ‘what are you stupid’. How far are we going to take unfortunate remarks?

                    I haven’t quoted you on anything and probably won’t quote you in future so no worries about that.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  Hi PJ, while I am appreciative of your belief that everyone has a right to earn a living that doesn’t mean everyone is entitled to the job of their choice.

                  Brandi is making her living off of ‘reality television’ which historically the players involved have a very short ‘life span’ in that industry.

                  Brandi is no more ‘deserving’ to make a living off of reality tv, then lets say Kate Gosselin who found her show canceled once she finally alienated what little was left of her fan base and production got tired of her diva like behavior and demands.

                  Brandi’s position on Bravo isn’t being threatened because Joyce or a viewer called her a racist. It’s because the vileness that comes out of her mouth, regardless if someone finds it racist and/or offensive or just plain mean…is driving people away.

                  At the end of the day, Brandi is responsible for what comes out of her mouth. It shouldn’t be incumbent on the viewers to guarantee her life long employment and not voice their opinions about what we are seeing.

                  • PJ says:

                    I didn’t say it should be. What I said was I don’t think it’s right to put nasty labels on people that could cause them to lose employment. If you are talking about Brandi’s language I agree she does need to clean it up. I think l Brandi is kind of a mess right now and sincerely hope that she gets her act together. I think a lot goes on behind the scenes that we have no idea about but it does play into what is shown or rather what happens on camera.

                    • mm in oc says:

                      If brandi was working for a corporation there is a good chance she would have been written up for her comments or fired. Haven’t seen enough of joyce to have an opinion of her other than she can handle herself with these ladies. Kyle I hated from her obvious jabs at Camille ” dont be insecure”.

                • chismosa™ says:

                  I agree that will happen with Joyce. Unless her sensible husband reigns her in to only 1 season in and then OUT. 🚪🚪

    • Powell says:

      I’m sorry chismosa but that was the best epi of VPR out of both seasons. The staff was on a roll last night w/their jokes at BH. They were too funny. I could have done w/o Kristen and Tom. Kristen is like a 14 yr old.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Kristen is a weird one ! She’s like Olive oil and gangly and odd. What does her boyfriend see in her !

        He’s too good looking for her. I can’t believe he’s straight

  5. VV™ says:

    BB! …. Thank you for blogging. Just when we thought no other franchise will reach Jersey levels. Brandi has managed to bring down what used to be a nice, fun enjoyable show. RHOBH should be about the lifestyle of the rich and famous instead we get Brandi, Carlton and Kim’s dog. WTF Bravo?

    Note: I want Kim Richards job. For four seasons now she has managed to get paid and worked at minimal. This season her dog has more airtime than she does. How does she get away with it?!

    • Cartwheels says:

      I am not sure how she gets away with it and how she manages to almost never mingle with the others but I have to say that this is the first season where I am enjoying Kim and will gladly watch 10 scenes of her and Kinsley rather that Brandi spewing the F word, so IMO Kim can stay because she is providing the light moments that this show so badly needs.

      • VV™ says:

        I think Bravo is making an effort to help rebuild Kim’s image. She’s getting a very good edit. This show is about BH lifestyle.
        She was a movie star. She should know people in the industry. Her storyline can be so much more interesting ….
        She needs to go on Animal Planet if all we are getting is dog. IMO.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I agree about Kim. Me and my dog Chico and his brother would provide 10000x more entertainment and I wouldn’t have the shakes either. Lame-O

    • Powell says:

      VV that’s why I say I miss Taylor and Adrienne. I know. Say it. 😉

    • Powell says:

      At least a little focus on Kingsley is better than watching Kim arrange photos, do laundry and talk to the housekeeper.

    • PJ says:

      When was it fun? I think you are forgetting about Faye, Taylor and others. Brandi hasn’t brought this show down any more than others before her have already done.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Yup i remember reading that about them last year or the year before. You are not crazy. (No one is here) 😉

  6. VV™ says:

    The Dream Team is really Yolanda and Brandi. Lisa was added to the team by default. I said it earlier in the season and I’ll say it again. Lisa’s heart is not on this show. She’s just going through the motions. You can tell she enjoys filming PumpRules better.

    • chismosa™ says:

      VV I really hated VPR- yuck. What a bunch of ugly annoying people.
      Luckily I got through in about 10 minutes to just see what applied to BH.

      YOU need to explain to me one day why Yo (Mohammed is only reason?) is turning on Lisa and why Brandy (?????) is ….

      Another day — 👀👅

      • Maybe Brandi thinks she’s the STAR and doesn’t like Lisa telling her how to behave. I’ll bet Mo and Ken had something to say after that dinner, and Lisa probably listened. Not all of these people are clueless like Brandi.

        • ladebra says:

          When I heard that Brandi actually said without her (and her feud with Joyce and her falling out with Lisa) there would be no BH this season …… I think that is exactly what Brandi believes. Someone has told her she is the star, and she believed it, smh.

        • VV™ says:

          I think Brandi does and I think Yofo also whispers that on Brandi’s ears. Brandi’s head got too big!

        • Powell says:

          What Lisa and Yo did was so wrong though. They keep perpetuating Brandi’s bad behavior. No way would I let my friend act like that. I’m tired of hearing those 2 say “I’m not Brandi’s mother”. I just wouldn’t have it. I’d tell my friend its wrong, stop it, turn the table on her & tell her we can’t be friends if she doesn’t change her behavior.

          • Amalfi says:

            Lisa had some greater obligation as a host to shut Brandi’s rude behavior down before it spread throughout the table (Joyce followed Brandi’s lead, but it was most definitely Brandi who was being naughty… and unfortunately, no one can ignore bad behavior amongst this crowd… they only know how to perpetuate it.)

            Lisa may know what Brandi is like now, but I believe she did then too, and for whatever reason, she chose to try to shut down the one who participated second, instead of the one who started it. She should have shut them both down.

            I am not giving Lisa a free pass for how she handled her dinner.

        • I agree. It’s really sad that Brandi has teamed up with Yo, who enables her bad behavior. I think that Lisa was really concerned about Brandi & trying to help her, but Brandi is so self-centered right now she can’t see it.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Brandi definitely thinks she is the star, she pretty much said if she didn’t do this or say that….then there wouldn’t be anything to talk about and there would be no show.

          She also made a comment about VPR needing BH to piggy back off of, (which IMO is correct and it really irritates me) but she definitely was throwing shade at Lisa and Co and trying to bring it back to herself. She already made remarks about having a sit down with Shashenna (whatever her name is) to try and promote Lisa’s show.

          • PJ says:

            Maybe Brandi is being told to bring the drama.

                I think they are all told to bring the drama to a certain degree. Jill Z gave it away when she said they were all told to “Bring the drama or loose the apple” .

                But where Brandi is now failing is instead of ‘throwing shade’ she is throwing manure and missing her target, so in the end…she is the only one being covered in shit.

          • VV™ says:

            Lisa got a spinoff before we ever knew who Brandi was. That is just BS. I tuned in to see Lisa’s show not Brandi and Schaenna. Even Brandi herself denied being used, she’s changing her story now.
            Vanderpump Rules is a hit on its own even Lady Gaga is a fan and Im sure it has nothing to do with Brandi.
            Somebody is whispering on Brandi’s ears that she’s the star of RHOBH and her head got really big. She’s free falling and only has herself to blame and her enabler friends that are riding whatever is left if her coattail.

          Thanks NMD

      • VV™ says:

        I think she’s jelly of the friendship with Mohammed. His house and Mohamed had been featured on the show as Lisa’s friend. I think she doesn’t like that Lisa is the Queen on this show because is Yofo’s mind, it should be her and her hubby. I think Yofo has a superiority complex and everybody is beneath her.
        #getwise

        • mrs peabody says:

          I agree with you about Yofo in she does think she is superior to everyone and her husband is god in her eyes. I don’t like her and don’t think her husband is anything other than a talented person and there are a lots of talented people in this world but god he is not. I like Lisa, Kyle and Kim. I would never hang around with someone like Brandi, I can’t stand drama people like her and would never want my name associated with her in any way. Still surprises me Lisa and Yofo do. Yofo would not lower herself to hang around with me so no worry there and besides I don’t like her anyway. Carlton, weird, Joyce to soon to tell for me.

    Have a good day y’all. So happy 13 is over.

    Note on shaky Kim and the dog story: IMO Two dogs don’t make a pack. It’s debatable, but in my PO you need minimum 3. 🙄
    I don’t trust that dog trainer by the way he freaked out at Kingsley like the Atlanta girls freaked at the Teredactyl in savannah.

    Does anyone here know if Kyle smokes ? 🚬🚬🚬🚬🚬
    Kyle is a size 4?? Wow. I must be a size 00.

    I’m sure this will be debated all week but “Murder a Puerto Rican” was like if she was in a fight with Yo and said “murder a Dutch bit**” or “murder an English bit**” Jax said the “Puerto Rican” also. I wonder if anyone is tweeting him ? 
    To say “puerto Rican” may have some racial undertones because of some stereotypes (?) and things associated perhaps with them in certain parts of the country (again? It’s saying where she’s from so that’s why I say ???) – but IMHO – Brandywine was labeling her annoyance at hair flip without uttering her NAME as lisa had JUST castigated/ instructed her to NOT FLUB the name again! 
    Note: I don’t consider Latin a race, I am 1/2 Latin, 1st generation. There are tons of races that fall under the Latin ethnicity. I consider it an ethnicity and overall culture – with subcultures. And I one up Hoyce because we have Chinese and Japanese in my mom’s country so I win Joyce ! Bwaha! The crown is MINE. Lol. It’s a contest right ?

    That IDIOT server with the horrible hair color job who announced the fish specials said HAND-ROASTED sea bass. Never heard of hand roasting fish! Hysterical. If I was lisa i’d kick her a$$. This was taped and it’s her business. I hope lisa is on top of her staff! But I know she must be….


    Hoyce doesn’t stop saying how ‘beautiful and gorgeous’ someone is. Very gallery girls- insecurity (someone on that show used to do that and got called out on it)- If anyone remembers that show. 
    Everyone ! “She’s stunning ”
    — and one could argue Hoyce brought her pageant winner (yikes 😁) – to Kyle’s shop because she’d be on camera too – promoting HER pageant she created. Whatevs. 
    Brandywine🍹🍷 seems to have filmed a few times this season with her two friends and what I see on other blogs – she seems to have known them a long time. Not sure if she showed them on film last year as I didn’t watch her ever. 


    Hope I haven’t severed any friendships with anyone over my dislike of Hoyce ! (Except ice n fire – hi!) – Ashy probably is breaking up with me.
    Love michael. But I did from the start. 

    All this Latin talk …..I need to get all my Latin superstitions ready for tonight – grapes under the table, special colored underwear. Catch y’all later. I hope to nap a bit. 🏃😑💤

    • TexasTart says:

      Hey, I can only take on a couple of these because someone is waiting on me. That is no dog trainer in my mind, he’s worthless and yes that is not a pack and it’s just two dogs outdoors. What a joke.
      I don’t think Kyle is a smoker but I think Kim is…do you ask because of the sound of their voice? That is not always a dead ringer for who smokes and doesn’t but their voices are similar.

      Gotta run, will check back and for my translation duties today, lol, surely Jill will check in when she gets back from ski-ville.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Just gonna give you the side eye. You are starting to give me CoyoteBille tease. Is that you? She was a poster who didn’t see anything wrong w/ calling AA/Blacks Negroes or Nwords because they call each other that and she was taught by her mother and that’s how it was done in her day which she mentioned w/ such nostalgia. She was told it was inappropriate but continued to ask why not? SMH I thought you were better than that Spanish.

      You don’t have to like Joyce, but you should be able to admit that the comments made by Brandi weren’t being said to be descriptive but were said in a derogatory manner. The comment “To say “puerto Rican” may have some racial undertones because of some stereotypes (?) and things associated perhaps with them in certain parts of the country (again? It’s saying where she’s from so that’s why I say ???)” The insult is NOT to be called PuertoRican or Mexican or Haitian or Russian. It’s where she’s from and who she identifies herself as. The insult IS to ONLY see her as a PUERTO RICAN! Not a woman, mother, wife, beauty queen, philanthropist or bitch etc. As for the stereotypes associated w PuertoRicans how about you tell me where your Mom’s from and I can give you ten in ten seconds. EVERYONE including AMERICANS, LIKE US, are stereotyped. Girl Puh-leeze.

      You believe Latins are not an ethnicity but a culture and subculture I guess depending on where the Latin person hails from. If that’s the case would it be okay for Brandi to have said … before I kill a JEW? That’s a culture and not a race so is that statement still acceptable to you as it’s descriptive? Oh my what would AndyCohen say then? Would Brandi speech still be okay in your book?

      How sad that some people in their haste to assimilate into American culture give up their identity and cast aspersions on those that still show patriotism to their country of origin. Look at the JerseyShore Guidos and Guidettes who’ve never set foot in Italy but proudly wear the 100 percent Italian t-shirts. Are they to be mocked because they’re actually Americans whose ancestors hailed from Italy? Or try telling a Boston chick who never heard of the potato famine that she’s not Irish… you’ll probably lose teeth! LOL

      Finally, you don’t have to use actual racial slurs to be racist. You just make comments that are racially tinged or hatefully point out differences at every opportunity to exclude those targeted from the ‘club’. Brandi is the kind of girl who can screw a million black and hispanic men and women and STILL believe she is better than them because when you get down to brass tacks she’s “FREE WHiTE AnD OVER 21”.

      Be well.

      • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

        I’m with you Amber.

        It doesn’t matter what the intentions are behind the nasty words (“I was joking!”) if the person being targeted is offended. It is therefore offensive. Joyce said she was bullied as a child using the same name Brandi was calling her. A person with an ounce of compassion would end it right there. Whether she was trying to be funny or not, it should have stopped. So yes – there you have it. Brandi was behaving as a bully.

        I and my family members have had more than our share of ethnic and racial insults thrown at us. Brandi needs to go away. She is doing more harm to the stress of the viewers than is worth it. Her supporters are justifying and spreading this intolerance without thinking for a second of the long-term ramifications. Maybe they aren’t thinking at all.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Well said, Amber. Its just not ok with me, what Brandi has done this season. Not ok. smdh

      • missusmc says:

        Totally agreeing with you Amber. You were able to write what I was feeling in a way I couldn’t. It’s concerning to see Brandi’s actions glossed over as if treating someone in an undignified manner related to race/ethnicity is ever okay.

        • chismosa™ says:

          What I was pointing out and my fingers fail me at times on this thing- is that if she said Dumb Dutch Bit**! Or dumb English *****! Would we be up in arms ?

          Joyce is as black as I am the the infanta of Spain !

          B has issues talking to people. That’s my point. Ain’t glossing over it just pointing out I wonder the uproar if it was to another ethnicity. I don’t see Latin as a race as a Latin person.

          Are blondes pissed with Hoyce ? She said you’re blonde but don’t act stupid. Good one!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Why do you make the assumption that no one would care if Yolanda’s heritage was used to belittle her? I would not like it if someone repeatedly came after her for being Dutch.

            And I didn’t say, yay, but I thought Amber expressed her thoughts on this very well. I do happen to agree with ebpverythong she said. You also express yourself well and I say that even when I don’t exactly agree with you.

            I wondered when the Joyce haters/Brandi advocates would finally mention what Joyce said about being blonde. She actually said “you’re blonde but you are not a bimbo, stop acting like one!” If she keeps on making repeated put downs about being blonde then, I would not like that or approve of that. But so far, it’s one time. It’s her first season, so all her imperfect words and “sins” are firsts. As PJ said to me “time will tell” …this time last year I was loving Brandi, until she made her remarks and continued with the ignorant comments episode after episode. It wasn’t one thing,…she just kept on and on….maybe the next episode she will redeem herself.

            Time to flatten my hair. Later, Chismosa…HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I think you’re awesome and always enjoy you and hearing your thoughts. Even if/when I do not agree with you, we can still be friends and I love that!

      • chismosa™ says:

        I get your point – I’ll reread this later and I knew it would just be a reply to me with YAYS under that – I’m used to it !

        I’ve been here since the BEGINNING when Lynn was on her first site and I feel a lot of people say that 😑 but I really was. If we could screen shot it- I was there — I’m no damn lurker or stupid troll – quoting that gruesome Milania –

      • chismosa™ says:

        Ok Amber my name is Chismosa – not español. ! ✋

        I get that B could say pageant b- or whatever instead but this is how this idiot talks so how should anyone expect less. ??? and she was so refreshing last year! A breeze ! ⁉️

        I’m saying “Puerto Rican” in quotes because to me, it’s not saying anything negative. I was saying that maybe — I don’t know- certain larger more diverse (ethnically not racially) urban areas- is it used as a slur? I know that in the mid- south to say “Mexican” – is not taken that well by those of that heritage ? Everyone please please COME at me and READ me how wrong I am! 
        My Irish friends joke with me about Latin slang all the time and I with them about Irish slang. Of course PCzip code USA would not like that. How dare we! But that’s how we, not all- roll. Girl. 

        I don’t want to get into that aspects of PR being part of the US and all the giving giving giving we give out citizens without PR paying taxes to the US because that’s a political thing. 

        I can fight with the best of them over my parents’ 2 cultures because they are 2 of the oldest and most influential and important civilizations on this planet so I can go toe to toe with anyone on that GIRL. The other day I said – we have the consistently voted best Latin cuisine out of all Latin cuisines and that is something I’m proud of – besides the fact the world wouldn’t have freakin potatoes and Ireland would have starved even MORESO if not for us cultivating it! Spain raped us of our gold and we’re still not over it (my non-Spanish side). We also speak top notch Spanish (next to Colombians). I am only proud because we contributed to the world. 

        I worry day in and day out that my stupid brother will shorten his 12 letter last name and NOT name his son after our father and keep Americanizing himself. I worry day in and day out on that. I don’t want us to keep the culture dying out. It’s shameful when we lose our language and religions. That’s why i don’t even want to raise my kids here if I have any. 

        Those jersey shore idiots are not even all Italian ? Of course the real Italians can beam with pride – Italy contributed something to the world. It’s the non-contributors I don’t understand :0
        (Though Italy piggy-backed on us but that’s another shabang)

        In this land of the free we should be able to hate and say who and what we don’t like. We can say anything except OFFEND. tip toe tip toe. 👣👣👣👣 say anything be anything but don’t offend!!!
        Thank god for Mohammed and his joke about Arabs and skiing. That is the levity of my cultural sense of humor I miss. Jokes like that get lost in sensitivity city, USA. 
        I’m glad you pointed that out about Jews because I too feel it’s a culture not a race despite hearing otherwise everyday. Andy did get on Luann in ny about dating a Jew. We must be sensitive !! That is us…. 😶
        Brandi is a mess and speaks INCORRECTLY at all times. Not disputing. But what can be expected of her? People asked for her last year ….. That’s what you get! 

        YOU be well too. 

        Now I’m going to eat my 12 uvas🍇under the table and wear yellow underwear and wish for a better 2014. 

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          Girl Hi!

          You probably learned the taxation code from those of that other civilization but here it is…

          “A common misconception is that residents of Puerto Rico do not have to pay federal taxes. Residents of the island pay federal taxes (import/export taxes, federal commodity taxes, social security taxes, etc.) and some even pay federal income taxes (Puerto Rico residents who are federal employees, or who do business with the federal government, Puerto Rico-based corporations that intend to send funds to the U.S., etc). While most residents of the island do not pay federal income tax, they do pay federal payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare), as well as Puerto Rico income taxes. In addition, because the cutoff point for income taxation is lower than that of the IRS code, and because the per-capita income in Puerto Rico is much lower than the average per-capita income on the mainland, more Puerto Rico residents pay income taxes to the local taxation authority than if the IRS code were applied to the island. Puerto Rico residents are eligible for Social Security benefits upon retirement. Puerto Rico is excluded from Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Puerto Rico receives less than 15% of the Medicaid funding it would be allotted as a state.”

          So they have to work and pay in order to receive SocSec, disability benefits, medicare etc. Many US corporations took advantage of Section 936 especially big pharmaceuticals like Pfizer, which my half-sister worked at, who came to the island, set up shop and raped the PRican workforce while using the residents in their medicinal trials for the drugs used world-wide today. So island PuertoRicans pay and are used and the benefits they receive are because they are US citizens just like us. Don’t hate the PuertoRicans take it up w/ your congressmen and do the CurleyShuffle.

          Actually you can hate anyone you want… that’s the beauty of the USA… you can believe you’re the best and speak the best and while people will give you the side eye… you can do that HERE in the US. Must’ve been a reason your parents or parents parents, came here to the US while speaking perfect Spanish to imperfect people who just don’t care. (eye roll) Believe me we, ThePuertoRicans, know. 😉 In the US you can be the last to come in and then request they shut the door and lock out the newcomers. Here in the US. Last thing a former FOB wants to see is new FOBs… just ask REZA. By the by… the best cuisine be it Latin, Chinese, Thai, Caribbean, Italian, French, American etc.. is the one you get at home that is made w/ love and is considered soul food. I had some of it tonight and it beats any JamesBeard award winning chef hands down! LOL

          We celebrated lovely tonight, w/ the 12 uvas, tambors,maracas y guiros w/ MyleyCyrus and Fergie and bought in the NewYear! We spoke ‘Spanish’ and English and every color of skin from Black2White was represented as Brunettes, Redheads, SaltNPeppers and Blondes with brown, grey, and blue eyes too. All the descendants of RealMom & RealDad w/ their spouses in tow. Joyce would’ve fit in beautifully… Brandi not so much and would’ve been beat to the shit she is! LOL

          Finally, Joyce can call blondes bimbos or dumb BECAUSE…. ANYONE can be a BLONDE!! IT COMES IN A BOTTLE and MILLIONS of WOMEN & MEN of different races and nationalities use it all the time as attested by Brandi’s dark roots. If it came in a bottle everyone would have it and a lot do. 😛

          Happy New Year to all, may the New Year of 2014 be prosperous and bring good health and love to all! To all a great night! 🙂

          • Anne says:

            Thank you Amber for making the point about the taxes. I’ll just add that, the people of Puerto Rico do not have voting representation in Congress and therefore, have no input into the federal laws that they are subject to. As a resident of the District of Columbia (who pays lots of federal taxes and also has the right to vote for president), who like the people of Puerto Rico, has no voting representation in Congress and therefore no voice, I can tell you that it is incredibly frustrating and annoying to have no input into federal laws that affect you on a daily basis. The federal funding, does not make up for it.

  8. Cartwheels says:

    Make no mistakes, the dream team is Yolanda, Brandi, Lisa and their tag along Carlton, just because Lisa and Brandi had a fall out and Lisa was expelled from the dream team, it doesn’t mean that at the time this episode was filming Lisa was not firmly on Brandi’s team.
    I would have more respect for Lisa is she would have come to her senses and realize that Brandi is a POS and she was the one who ended the friendship instead of having a fall out with her for some petty magazines they brought to Palm Springs to hurt Kyle even more.
    During last night’s episode Lisa’s behavior was coherent with that of her team motto; DOUBLE STANDARDS
    Lisa can ask Joyce to shut up but Brandi is ranting and raving and she can ignore her
    Lisa asks Joyce and Michael not to talk about teams but she laughs at Yolanda naming you the dream team.
    Lisa tells everybody that Brandi is not a racist but she has been there three times when she has made racial remarks and not say a word against it.
    Lisa, Yolanda and Brandi had this dinner and were trying to act as if Joyce and Brandi were coming on equal terms, both needed to apologize and then move on, how can they even pretend that Brandi , their girl, their friend, has not been taunting, humiliating and harassing Joyce for the last three events with their consent is beyond me. To even pretend that Michael is not supposed to say a word when Brandi has her two strongest allies at the table is laughable.
    Yolanda clutching her pearl at the simple thought that this is nothing but a perfect group was hilarious.
    As I said before, Lisa is lucky that she had a fall out with Brandi, she is lucky that it happened otherwise she would continue to defend Brandi and look like crap, instead and by virtue of being at odds now she gets to rewrite history and blog about how bad Brandi’s behavior was but she was there and as a host she could have put an end to it and chose not to.
    Actions speak louder than words.

    • I still like Lisa, but I agree 100% with you. She has been really disappointing this season, but at this point only Brandi continues to dig a deeper hole for herself. The others – even Yo and Carlton- are slowly distancing themselves.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Lisa is looking pretty bad right now but I am sure once she has her fall out in Puerto Rico with Brandi things will start to look up for her.
        Lisa’s worst mistake was not make an unholy alliance with Brandi, I would like to believe that in real life Lisa would never even give someone like Brandi a second look let alone be friends with her, same goes for Yolanda.

        • Yo is at least in her circle of friends being Mo’s ex wife.

          I think she took in Brandi like she took in Cedric. She likes to look after strays.

          • Katie (aka kats2) says:

            I think Lisa took in Brandi to have her on her side and the added bonus of Brandi doing her dirty work for her doesn’t hurt. It backfired and I’m sure Lisa will recover.

            • VV™ says:

              What dirty work?

              • Katie (aka kats2) says:

                I lost my response! 😦 Net of it is that Lisa and Yo are benefiting from Brandi’s disgusting behavior. As long as they are on the same team, Brandi does after people they don’t like too Adrienne, Kyle, etc. We’ve watched Lisa laugh at Brandi’s garbage all season and queen-bee doesn’t even have to get her hands dirty, she sits back laughs and writes blogs about how Brandi was wrong. Brandi is not very bright and easy to wind up but Lisa has benefited from her BS.

                • VV™ says:

                  So, she laughed so what? She was laughing a a drunk person speak nonsense.
                  Kyle and Kim attacked Brandi first, Lisa had nothing to do with that. Adrienne and Brandi had a fallout and again Lisa had nothing to do with that. So, I don’t get this “dirty work”. I still didn’t get specifics of these dirty works.

                  • kit9 says:

                    The magazines, to start. Also, Brandi was doing Lisa’s bidding at Carlton’s. Brandi brought up the cheating on that occasion and then Lisa jumped in with the no smoke w/o fire. And, Lisa wasn’t laughing at a drunk person. She was laughing at a drunk Brandi attack someone she didn’t like. Also, Lisa claimed later that her ‘strategy’ was to keep Brandi from getting drunk. So, how could she delight in a drunk person when she’s on record saying it was her strategy to keep the drunk person from getting drunk? No, it’s just Lisa twisting and trying to rewrite history to make herself look good but her lies and phoniness is plain as day.

          • VV™ says:

            I think you are absolutely correct. I think when Brandi was the only one defending Lisa at Reunion S2, Lisa thought she could have a loyal friend in her and took her under her wing. Much like she did with Credric.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

  9. Powell says:

    Good morning and Happy New Year’s eve everyone. “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” NMD? Jealous, green eyed envious Brandi. It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to see why Brandi dislikes Joyce so much. She’s jealous. No ifs, ands, or buts. Brandi said in a TH last night that she doesn’t like being w/the married couples. Well if she keeps up w/how she treats people its just gonna be her and her
    lover Twitter. Hey Brandi since you can’t get enough of your love, your baby Twitter did you buy any stick? At least you’d be making some money
    I hope everyone has a great day. Get off of work early and let the drinking commence. 🙂

  10. Bottom line is Brandi’s career is over. She’s simply offended too many people by her (pick one) ignorant or racist comments. It’s hard enough for talent-less aging women in Hollywood, but add on ignorant/racist, clueless, and unable to keep her mouth shut, and why would anyone hire her when there are hundreds of others that don’t carry the stigma.

    Put a fork in her – her career is done. I hope she saved her money. I wonder how her book will do – she must be shitting bricks right now (pardon my language).

    • TexasTart says:

      I agree. Sad but true (and deserving). I also wondered if Joyce’s husband had the power to blackball her…but the. I decided she didn’t need help eliminating future employment in the entertainment industry.

    • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

      Oh come on…, you know she’s still got that ultimate blunder coming up. She hasn’t put all her offensive cards on the table.

      So what will the final straw be? Will she get so cocky about proving she’s not racist by dropping the “n” bomb? She hasn’t offended the gay community yet. Will she use the Big F word on screen?

    • Catseye says:

      People like Brandi just annoy me. They throw away one opportunity after another, only to sit back and play the “poor little me,” game. Why does Ken think she needs a boyfriend? She met a very nice-looking (he made Eddie look like some old derelict bum) guy, at Kyle’s–Mauricio’s colleague, acted like a slut (maybe she didn’t go “all the way,” but she probably tore half her clothes off, as reported), only to quickly lose his interest and now she’s alone again. She had a successful year or two on the show, wrote a book, made some money, instead of buying a small condo she can afford in a nice area, she had to rent a large, expensive, fancy house (that she couldn’t afford to furnish) and I don’t doubt she will soon be broke and living with her parents again at some point. Wasn’t she supposedly designing dresses, too? After that ill-fitting Oscar’s dress, I doubt anyone would be rushing to the stores. She’s a complete idiot.

    Just watching the show now in the safety of my own living room with a DVR. Thank goodness I can forward past every inappropriate scene with Carlton. Ick.

    I feel for Lisa. I’ve had a train wreck friend. She’s in a no-win situation.

    Damnit Kim. She should not own a dog if she won’t let it be a dog. Kingsley will get frustrated at Kim screwing with his natural instinct and it will attack someone. She’s an effing idiot.

    Great Yolanda. Give your husband a book he can’t share with anyone and then show it on tv. Oy vey.

    FatKyle is the worst representative for a fashion boutique. Why can’t she get a stylist? Oh yeah – she doesn’t have have to listen to anyone. Ever.

    Gee Brandi, when you continue to poke the bear (Joyce) don’t you think she will strike back? And this one has the ability to maul you. #teamjoyce

    Nobody wants to see Kim on a racetrack. Or on the screen at all. Or at all. She’s an effing idiot.
    Bullshit – I mean BULLSHIT she was driving herself at age 12. Total bullshit. Put the pills down.

    EW! Carlton scene!

    Brandi called Lisa a what? Yeah – so the truth starts coming out on who was ripping on who.
    Cut the cord, Lisa.

    Three seasons of Brandi talking about winning so she has to imagine this competition with Joyce. You can’t win this! Joyce is a real deal beauty queen!

    Brandi. Shut up. No Brandi, you started this stupid conversation about friends trashing each other. Planet trash.

    Chopped and edited. I can’t believe people weren’t trying to shush Brandi.

    I love when stupid people have to resort to the eff word because there’s nothing else in their vocabulary. What’s the saying, why let people think you’re stupid when you can open your mouth and prove it.

    Michael Ohoven for the win.

      I know it comes with the territory but I don’t like beauty queens that have gone under the knife….kinda cheating ….

      I didn’t like Paul and Mauricio screaming at Brandi and I didn’t like Teddy Bear doing it last night either…. Even if it was at Brandi and she deserved it. Not cool at all and lost point with me.

      • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

        A see you next Tuesday.

        Brandi started the casino. What did she possibly expect Michael to do when she attacked both his wife and then her? Oh now she’s back to being the crying victim now. God help us.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Not only weren’t they shushing Brandi they flipping DEFENDED her w/ “Brandi is Brandi..”
      Check out VPR, when Lisa asks how Kristen is doing. Yolanda is heard in the background saying from what I can make out ‘we’re not going anywhere with this.’ Then clearly “Brandi is Brandi” then it’s low again. So Yo defended her and her actions.

      • VV™ says:

        Yofo and Brandi are tight!!! They’ve been tight since Paris. If you look at most of the scenes, they sit together, they are always together. They fooled Lisa into thinking they were her friends but for weeks now every time Lisa tries to correct Brandi, Yofo is right there telling Lisa to leave Brandi alone.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Yo’s eyes never leave Brandi’s.

          I’ve noticed this on every episode

        • kit9 says:

          Nobody fooled Lisa. Lisa knew exactly the nature of her friendship with Yolanda. She knew that Yolanda was talking trash about her last season and stood by her because it suited her purposes of bashing Kyle. And, Lisa was by far the biggest defender of Brandi last night and did nothing in the way of correcting Brandi’s behavior. Quite the opposite, in fact. Last week, there was Lisa, again, cackling and egging Brandi on. Lisa actually said, “Behave yourself. No DON’T, IT’S BORING”. And, last night, there she was again defending Brandi. Worse, she kept attacking Joyce! Continually chastising Joyce and trying to get her to shut up and not a word to Brandi.

      Rebecca I LOL at “In the safety of my own living room with a DVR”. You could fast forward or throw your shoe at the tv. I can’t remember if it was Lulu, Lainey or JNNTJ that would threaten to break their tv while watching NJ. That’s what what you said reminds me of. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      So when Kim drove herself to work st age 12 did her grandma stay w/her all day cuz she couldn’t drive herself back home? 😉

  12. Jules says:

    my sister told be about dvd-ing and then starting to watch 10mins in so you can skip the commercials. I started 20mins in and caught up with the live showing because I fast forwarded so much – all of Carlton and kim things and most of the kyle try on dresses. This show has lost much of its appeal.

    So much is made up and rehearsed ahead of time. Why else would michael and joyce not have stood up and walked out when the stupid things started.

  13. Lulu says:

    Good Morning!!! Happy New Year’s Eve!!!!!!!!

    Happy happy happy happy birthday Mkvalle and Jeff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Here is my open letter to Bravo:

    Dear Bravo,

    I’m sorry but it’s just not working out. I’m a married woman with 2 children. I have no interest in seeing: Naked women, women trying on bikinis/lingerie, being assaulted by Don Juan’s peanut in Mexico or another creepy bath tub scene!!! I feel you lost “touch” with your viewer base. Its really not shocking to show us disgusting behavior it’s just sad that is your last ditch effort for ratings. What is even sadder is the “pathetic” sheep you find who will spread anything for $ or 15 minutes of bravolebrity “fame.” Hope it’s worth it! Unless you change your ways and realize who your viewer base are then I’m done…

    Good luck!!!

    • mrs peabody says:

      You know I don’t know why anyone would think Carlton has such a sexy body, I just don’t see it.

    • Powell says:

      Hey Lulu. I hope your men are feeling better.

      You know I thought Bravo listened when we said no more bathtub scenes. Lisa Woo & Tamra’s were bad enough.

      • lulu says:

        They are starting to feel better. ;).

        What idiot over at bravo thought those scenes would interest their viewers? That person should be fired and sent directy to mtv or fox!

    Happy birthday News Years Eve babies!!!!

    • vilzvet says:

      Happy new year Sue! By the way great tweets to Brandi!

      • plainviewsue says:

        She is the gift that just keeps on giving!!! Actually, I really would rather return her as a gift. It is getting harder and harder to watch her. She even once said she attacks. And she attacks with the same phrases over and over again……….STFU. Bring it on b*tch. F this F that. She’s not used to someone truly taking her on. Faye tried but Faye was so hated she still got support.

        No longer. Personally, I loved that Michael stood up for his wife. Nobody else was going to. You’re telling me if in Yolanda’s first season, people were calling Yolanda stupid, cursing at her, etc., that David wouldn’t say anything???? Bull on that.

        If some uneducated bimbo like Brandi was attacking me like that, you can bet my husband would stick up for me. And I can stick up for myself just fine.

        Carlton’s blog was ridiculous.

  15. ladebra says:

    Thank you for the blog BB, great job! I agree NMD, I think Brandi jumped the shark. And, from what I can see did it with eyes wide open and not a brain cell in her head. She doesn’t get it. We saw Yolanda try to tell her the language was unacceptable, and yet we have seen twitter melt downs with all the f-bombs so that didn’t work. I believe Eddie, she is and always has been an exhausting, talentless, drama queen.

    Everyone enjoy the last day of 2013! You never know where the road goes, hope yours goes to Happyville!

    • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

      She’s retweeting her buddy’s she-who-hides-behind-her-religion blog because it’s the only one who defends her behavior.

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

    Nobody with three sober brain cells would ever tweet something like this.

  17. vilzvet says:

    Loved all the comments on last night’s total waste of time. Always more entertaining than the show at this point. LOL and noticed they never showed til last night how David and Yolanda’s home is not beach front as they try to make it appear but on the wrong side of the Pacific Coast HIghway.. They must hear the four lanes of cars directly down below all the time, kinda like Teresa’s house backing up to a NJ highway.

  18. catmom1 says:

    Happy birthday MTH. Didn’t watch/have stopped watching the RHOBH show last night. Still holding out a rapidly diminishing hope for NY. However, I did watch the Vanderpump train wreck. In our house we just call them the vapids. If you didn’t see it, this episode is soooo worth watching. Absolutely hysterical. Forget the vapids’ interpersonal drama. Just watch for their running commentary during the BH dinner. Can’t stand Stassi, but I think she had three great lines last night. Had no idea she had a sense of humor. Wishing everyone a great New Year.

    • kit9 says:

      S0 agree! Couldn’t believe how funny the usually unwatchable, soul crushingly unlikable Vanderturds were! Jax was hilarious, too.

  19. Brandi is becoming more and more like Taylor playing the victim card. She manages to turn everything around into people attacking her and I don’t understand why the people close to her don’t tell her this. I imagine Yo and Lisa look at this episode with a little embarrassment since they are totally enabling her very inappropriate behavior. (I also find it funny that each person ordered their food “special” and annoyed the shit out of the wait staff! this is also my pet peeve at restaurants! I understand saying “no mayo” or dressing on the side, but to think a chef can make each order to their specifications just shows how spoiled and entitled these people are!) I found Joyce annoying the first few episodes, but I like her now and I am surprised that she stands up for herself and isn’t afraid of confrontation face-to-face. Not the norm for this group! I am also glad that her husband stood his ground. He was not disrespectful either which Brandi had no prob hitting below the belt. He did not raise his voice, but spoke clearly and defended his wife (and I believe if he thought his wife was in the wrong he would have said so!) I am disappointed that Lisa did not shut it all down since it was her dinner party or attempt to lead the “mediation” in a more pleasant manner. Brandi language and attacking tone was wrong and as the hostess, Lisa should have shut her down! Enabling never helped anyone!

    XOXO to all the New Year babies! Have a Happy New Years Eve to EVERYONE!!!

    • VV™ says:

      Lisa was also dealing with staff issues at the same time…

      • kit9 says:

        But, Lisa had plenty of time to berate and browbeat Joyce. It would be one thing if she just sat there and did nothing, one way or another. But, she jumped right in and kept telling Joyce, the one who was attacked, to stop it.

    • Powell says:

      Story don’t you feel like Brandi hangs onto it for dear life more than Taylor? Yes Taylor drank too much & got into shouting matches at times but w/Brandi its every epi & throughout the epi.

      • mrs peabody says:

        Taylor was also dealing with different problems than Brandi is. To me it would be a lot harder dealing with all the emotional things going on because your husband committed suicide in the last year than with a cheating husband that left you a number of years back.

    • Powell says:

      Story I don’t find ordering off the menu a problem in a fine restaurant. The chef shoulde able to do a lot w/what they have available.

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      I was never a Taylor fan still not but I miss the old crew, would would trade Brandi and the new sex weirdo for anyone from the old crew. Brandi should have stayed a HW friend just to keep them on their toes.

            What are you talking about Catseye ? You always have great health tips …..

            • Catseye says:

              Sorry (I was putting all my Xmas stuff away, tonite). I found it on ebay and also Amazon has it (about $10). It’s called “Nuez de la India,” someone in the Amazon reviews said it’s also know as Candlewood Nut or something, but you cut these seeds into 8 pieces and boil it in water for 3mins and drink it every nite. It sort of gives you the runs, but I’ve found that I have lost my cravings for sweets. It’s very bitter tasting, but I hold my breath and swig it down. (When I first started using it, I got very achy and sore, like I had the flu, but I quit using it for a day or two and that went away). I think it helps flush the fat out of your system.

              • chismosa™ says:

    Did not watch BH last night. I need to get caught up. Did another 90 minute spin class this morning and ready for a nap.
    Going over to Bravo to read the blogs. I will stop in and out today. Working around the house.

  26. adamay411 says:

    When I was in better health I entertained a lot. If a guest of mine had behaved the way Brandi did to another guest I would have asked them to leave — no question. What Lisa and Yo don’t seem to understand is that Brandi is disrespecting them as hosts and ‘friends’. By keeping quiet, in turn, they are disrespecting Joyce and Michael who are their guests.

    If even one-half of what we see about Brandi is real, she should lose custody of her kids. She is a mess who can’t even care for her animals — how can her children survive?

    Happy New Year

    • BB says:

      Totally agree adamay411. This show definitely isn’t “reality” because “real” people don’t behave that way nor condone that kind of behavior.

    • VV™ says:

      We only saw Bravo edited version. I’m sure that dinner took longer. We saw exactly what Bravo wanted us to see.

        VV IMO something was UP with Hoysa and hubby coming in LATE.

        • Cartwheels says:

          In her blog Joyce clarifies that she came exactly at the time she was told to come, probably production trying to stir up the pot,.

    • Powell says:

      Right adamay411. That’s what a good host does.

    • mrs peabody says:

      Probably in real life with no camera’s around they probably would ask a rude guest like this to leave but because they are filming this they probably have to sit there and let her rant and rave.
      Take one for the show.

    So, remember when RHONY was recast because it was too negative? And that was nothing compared to what we are seeing his season on Beverly Hills!

  36. designernailsdiana says:

    We all have a friend who exhausts us with just all their neediness. Right??? I hope I’m not alone in this one.
    I mentioned her on FB-LynnFam and was told I should not have spoken to her husband. Here’s the deal. A friend is someone who you can talk to and share experiences with because you can listen to them in return. What do you call it when the friend NEVER asks you questions and only shares their stuff? I’ve avoided talking to her for months now. In fact when we (DH and I) saw her and her hubby at the Choo Choo Bob Show I made it a point not to get suckered into asking her any questions. She baited me with “He (her DH) can walk over to Tom I can’t get that far” really she couldn’t walk another 9 feet? How did she walk from the parking ramp to the building and down the stairs plus walk across the room to where we were? I knew she’d launch into her aches and pains so I didn’t react and stayed put on the other side of the train layout (Jeff knows what a lay out is). My DH told me she went into telling him about her shoulder and knee needing surgery, but they can’t afford it yet. She’s been repeating this for over a year now.
    I’m worn out just hearing about it. Can you imagine having Brandi for a friend and always hearing “Eddie cheated on me so I can’t….. Be nice to Sheana, Joyce, Leann, Lisa…etc”?
    It’s wearing on the viewers can you imagine what the ones who film with her have to deal with?
    Ok off my soap box. Out the door, off work until next year!!

    • Powell says:

      Hey Diana. I hope the family had a free Christmas. How’s you dad? I hope he’s for well.

      • designernailsdiana says:

        Powell Thanks for asking. My Dad is doing very good. Still working 3 hours a day 5 days a week at Byerlys. He complains about Pearl our Pekingese yet he loves her ha ha. Christmas was relaxing.

        • Catseye says:

          Hi Diana, I know EXACTLY the type of “friend,” your are referring to. I just got rid of someone just like that, this past summer (oh, what a relief!!!).
          Have you ever heard of something called Pinhole Glasses for your dad? I bought some from Amazon for $1.89 (from China), for myself and my mother. They have tiny holes all over the lenses and block out your peripheral vision. According to the reviews they’re supposed to help heal your eyes. I like them so far, I can read the computer screen w/o regular glasses wearing them and my eyes feel relaxed when I take them off. Just a suggestion.

          • designernailsdiana says:

            Oh great suggestion I’ll check them out.
            I don’t want my friend to go away I just want to be able to tell her how she takes over a conversation leaving everyone wanting to escape from her monologue.

    • You are right, we all have one of those friends (possible 2-3 of those friends) that when you see them in the grocery store, you RUN the other way! U avoid the express lane because she is already there and you know you will be stuck for hours so you stand in the line 10 people deep so you can buy your vine ripened tomato. Hopefully the other housewives will start refusing to film with her.

      • chismosa™ says:

        They shouldn’t be friends anymore.

    • TexasTart says:

      Diana, I had a friend that exhausted me with her neediness…the same one I referred to yesterday as feeling she had to constantly defend herself against people and when I was told she was tired of defending herself against me, I realized she was toxic and that was the end of my communication with her!

  37. cusi77 says:

    It is just me or last Season Ken came to defend Brandi against Adrienne and Paul (White Party), because “Poor single mother” Brandi did not have a husband to stand up for her?

    I wish I could see some rabid trashy woman attacking Yolanda or Lisa and David Foster and Ken just watch -because it is “Housewives” and not “Househusbands”… Suuuuuuuuuuuuure!Lol!

    • Powell says:

      Cusi last night I said I don’t hardly think David would sit by and let someone yell at and insult Yo. Of course when it pops off let your wife speak up for herself but then the husband should jump in and have his wife’s back.

    • Cartwheels says:

      If the confrontation would have been just between Brandi and Joyce I would say Michael should have kept quiet and see how Joyce was handling, but that was not the case.
      Yolanda and Lisa were actively enabling and helping Brandi perpetuate her lies, they were there on that pool when Brandi used a racial remark to slam Joyce, they were at the dinner where Brandi repeatedly offended Joyce not only by purposely changing her name but also telling her to STFU among other things, they were not only there , they were giggling and laughing all along, yet they never mentioned a word and all they tried to do was to shut Joyce up. .
      For all purposes intended this was Yolanda, Lisa and Brandi against Joyce, even Mohammed was piping in trying to understate what bothered Joyce , at that point I will say that Michael was definitely justified in intervening and defending his wife.
      I LOL at Yolanda’s face when Michael told her that he wasn’t having it and he was not okay with anybody talking to his wife that way, Yolanda was shocked for a moment as she kept quiet. I loved that moment, Yolanda was told and it took her a while to recover, LOL

      • Sus says:

        My daughter lost her phone this summer so I gave her an old one of mine. I didn’t realize that Verizon considered that an upgrade. When I went to buy her a smart phone for Xmas, Verizon made me add another line to the account in order to do it because her line isn’t eligible for an upgrade until 2015, So, I’m being a big bitch on Twitter until they fix it.

    Like I’ve been saying since I first heard the phrase “Dream Team”. Lisa was not part of it, she was just being used by Brandi and Yolanda.

    @joycegiraud: @RealityTVBliss @LisaVanderpump I love Lisa. We are in a great place right now. I don’t include her in “the dream team”

    Original Message:

    • Cartwheels says:

      She doesn’t include her now but Lisa was definitely part of the dream team in these nine episodes we have seen so far.
      Joyce is obviously busy enough taking down Brandi, Yolanda and Carlton so she is sparing Lisa because they are in a better place.
      It would not surprise me that Lisa hosted a meeting with Joyce (behind doors per her MO) after Brandi exposed her for the magazines in PS and mended fences with Joyce.
      If Joyce wants to believe her or pretends to believe her good for her.
      I am really looking forward to the old Lisa, the one without Brandi, maybe Lisa will be back to her roots and stop this crappy mind games and just be real and enjoy the show.
      One can always dream.

      • Powell says:

        Has it been 9 epis?

      • VV™ says:

        Too funny. Lisa is a busy business woman. She actually has a life away from the show. Seriously doubt she did as you indicate.

        Kyle was the one that came up with Teams. Bravo ran with it. I said it at the beginning of the season Snd I say it again. The only team on RHOBH was the dynamic duo of Brandi and Yofo. Lisa had to film with somebody since Kyle and Kom wouldn’t film with her…. she had to film with B&Y.

    • kit9 says:

      That’s clearly just Joyce in her new alliance. Joyce sure included Lisa in the dream team last week and was NOT amused. Joyce, even though she’s now making nice nice with her fellow Brandi foe, she was clearly not pleased with Lisa’s cackling approval of Brandi’s bad behavior in her talking head and called her on it. Lisa most surely was part of the Dream Team, she was the leading Brandi enabler and defender.

  45. Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

    Hi everyone-back from my ski trip!! No TV up there in the mountains so I missed BH but mostly I missed the CHAT!!
    Brandi has gone off the deep end!! She is making everything worse by her stupid tweets! She should have humbly apologized for the idiotic comment she made to Joyce about not being able to swim b/c she is “like a black person”. She was not humble nor accountable and that is why she got her ass fired from her gig at HR. She can NEVER learn a lesson-NEVER!! She is 41 years old and she doesn’t know how to have a conversation with anyone! She goes right in for the kill and she looks like a fool. Everyone has gone through hard times-depression and anxiety-and not everyone acts like a moron! She needs to put on her big girl panties and man the F up!! I knew she would fall but I didn’t think she would fall so hard. It’s sad to watch b/c it’s all her own fault. She wants attention but not like this-she asked for it all!
    Joyce’s husband stood up for Joyce and that was a problem? Seriously? I can’t wait to watch and see how it all went down.
    Brandi needs to stop blaming Joyce for all the negative crap that is going on and start blaming her damn self!!

  46. Powell says:

    For MelTheHound. Not the best audio, but I picked this dude because he’s from your neck of the woods. I remember seeing this years ago and thought it was funny he was singing Happy Birthday at his OWN birthday celebration, lol. Toot your horn – it’s your day! 😉

  48. iceNfire says:

    Hello – Maybe b/c i dislike joyce so much I saw this differently than most of you guys. What I saw was Joyce saying Lisa sent her a text about starting ‘fresh’ but she then proceeds by not greeting Brandi. When MoHadid asks joyce how happy she is to meet the group of ladies she relips with ‘so-so’ and her husband adds that they are ”not the easiest of groups’
    Joyce’s remarks about Brandi beeing racist and bully is like Brandi always saying STFU when she has nothing substantial to say. Funny how Joyce has found her voice now that her husband was sitting next to her.
    And where the hell is Carlton? Seems to me that prodution didn’t want her at Yo’s dinner last week and they didn’t want her at Lisa’s dinner either. I am happy anytime Kyle/Kim are not present.

      Joyce explains in her blog, that she did greet her, but chose not to kiss her. She said something like ” I can be polite, but not fake” – – -I (Lainey) try not to kiss people who have said mean things to me. I don’t blame her for that. Does that make me rude? I don’t care, I can’t be fake with my kisses.

      Brandi has said stfu, bring it and her wangster nonsense repeatedly for years. This is the first time/season that Joyce has said the racist and bully word on camera in regards to Brandi. Of course if three years from now, she’s still saying that when on camera then I’ll agree that it’s the same as when Brandi says stfu, fu, f yourself, etc. But until then, it’s a one season thing. SO FAR. but Time will tell. haha!!!

      Yes, Joyce did feel more secure in speaking her mind with an ally by her side. Just like Brandi says what she wants when she has her allies by her side. As opposed to when she was at Kyle’s store (sans Yolanda, Lisa, or Carlton) so she kept quiet. She then, later at the dinner found her voice again at the dinner when she had Yo, Lisa, Mohamed, Ken, all asking Joyce and her husband to pipe down while Brandi found and used her voice against Joyce and her husband. The voice she (Brandi) didn’t have when she wasn’t surrounded by the Dream team in the store earlier. It’s fair to say, Joyce found her voice with her hubs by her side, just as Brandi found her voice with part of her dream team by her side. Goose, Gander. Pot, Kettle. Fair is fair. If you think it’s wrong of Joyce to feel more confident with her husband by her side, is not also wrong for Brandi to also feel more confident with her good friends by her side?

      When cut, do I not bleed?

      I’m rambling. It’s been that kinda day.

      • iceNfire says:

        Hi Lainey “I’m rambling. It’s been that kinda day.” LoL I Noticed! Way upthread you said something about liking to hear ‘from both sides’ and I’m now wondering which side I’m on? I do hopw it’s the side with hearts hahahaha

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Yes, you’re def on the side with hearts mama! You are also on the don’t likey Joyce side, me on the I do likey Joyce side. I want us on the same side. Butthat’s not to be this season. No biggie. I do like to hear from both sides because a) I might miss stuff because I’m blinded by love or b) I might like to argue just a little bit, it’s not upsetting to me and I find it rather cathartic. (Is that bad?). I feel safe having discussions here,

    • chismosa™ says:

      Hi Ice!
      I think it’s fishy that she and hubby walked in late. Smells odd to me.

    • kit9 says:

      She did great Brandi. We saw her say hello, how are you to Brandi. Brandi, of course, lied and said Joyce completely snubbed her.

    BB – Thanks for the BH recap, I know it’s not as fun as we thought it could be, so we appreciate your hanging in there with it!

    Re: Carlton and the Nanny. I addressed this when NMD had a similar response…and I really do not wish to come across defending Carlton BUT I see this differently. It’s not sexual harassment in the workplace unless the recipient has a problem with it.

    I am seeing the “Nanny” flirting back, so totally looks lime a willing participant whether it’s real or just for TV. And Carlton has called her a friend. That’s not the same as an employee. I don’t swat my employees on the ass, or threaten to have them “perform” but we can joke around because we are friends! That Nanny is a willing participant, no victim IMO.

    • BB says:

      I have processed sexual harassment cases in my previous work life. Carlton is on a slippery slope here. All she has to do is make the nanny mad and the nanny has it on tape what Carlton has said and done. She could say she was in fear of being fired if she didn’t go along with Carlton’s kidding around. I’ve seen it happen time and time again. Doesn’t mean the nanny would win her case, but it sure causes a big, big headache for the accused and usually ends up costing the accused money in the form of some type of settlement whether they are guilty or not. It just doesn’t make sense for Carlton to treat an “employee” this way. It can get ugly.

      • Nancy says:

        BB…On the door of OR 12 we had a sign that said this is not a sexual harassment
        free zone so enter at your own risk. (Maybe you had to be there)

        I hope your mom is doing well. Happy New Years Eve.

        • BB says:

          Lots of people don’t “get it” until they are slapped with a SH lawsuit. Even then, there are some that never “get it.” I have been sexually harassed. Not a good feeling. Never filed a complaint though. I just told the harasser if he ever touched me again, I would scream so loud, it would bring the whole building running. He never so much as looked my way after that. That was before sexual harassment laws were in place.

          • TexasTart says:

            Very sorry you were the subject of harassment, BB. I would agree with you some people don’t initially get it. Fortunately I will never have an issue of SH in my workplace. I just see it differently with those two for what few minutes have been shown in different episodes.

            • TexasTart says:

              Oh, just read another post and oh yes, all that “nanny” has to do is get mad and she has a case! And that ties into my point made about it’s not a problem until the recipient says it is.

          • Nancy says:

            I didn’t mean to make fun of it as it is a very serious issue and I’m sorry
            you had to go through that. You are right that we can joke about it but we
            wouldn’t be joking if we ended up in court. 😦

  54. Powell says:

    I’m watching Modern Family. A NY eve epi. Jay ate the grapes. Gloria said why’d you eat the grapes? Jay said he paid for them. Gloria said at midnight you have 12 grapes to make a wish for each month. Jay said you really think that works? Gloria said 5 yrs ago she was a single mother living in the slums. Today I’m driving to Palm Springs w/my rich husband. I’m eating my grapes. You do what you want.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’ve seen that one, love it. Thanks for the reminder to eat grapes. I hope ours are still edible.

    • chismosa™ says:

      We all do that Powell. I eat them under a table at 12 exactly. If I was Gloria I would have been BALLISTIC

    • TexasTart says:

      I never heard of this grape tradition!

      • chismosa™ says:

        • chismosa™ says:

          Copied it:

          Eating twelve grapes under the table at midnight, saying the name of each month as they are consumed rapidly. Slipping up or dropping a grape forecasts bad luck for that particular month. A thirteenth grape must be eaten to assure good luck.

          Wearing new clothes—typically underwear. This typically goes hand-in-hand with wearing specific colors that represent something you desire in the upcoming year: Yellow for luck and happiness, green for money, red for love, and white for health or fertility.

          I don’t know why I don’t wear green instead. My mother insists on yellow. LOL

          • chismosa™ says:

            Ok my mother says I should just put the green on ALSO with the yellow.
            LOL she’s crazy

            …….but I may do so

    OMG! I thought i would have a lazy free day today. I have been busy!! Now i will have some down time. I dont want to miss, like Xmas, to wish you a good one.
    Happy New Years Eve everyone!!
    BB Thamks for the BH blog – i will read the comments now. I read last night’s chat very late but at least i am cut up with that 😛

    If i dont get a chance again tonight – i wish you all a great night! See you all tomorrow 🙂

  58. chismosa™ says:

    The one positive thing that i find SO refreshing about Brandi is she’s not being managed and doesn’t have a Heather writing all her tweets and blogs for her. She’s not Britney Spears.
    She can stand up and scream at someone and be witty when she’s not cursing. She’s QUICK.
    I give her that. Not faux faux//forehead 49 counts!

    I do agree she’s only with the F this and F that. But at least she has little things thrown in on between that show me her cerebellum works.

    Other than that – she’s got problems. Poor thing. I am on the fence about alcoholism. Because of the taping of this mess of a show, prodding from production, the press, castmates and chess games – and of course stuff from her hubby and the horse.
    Also I have a friend we lost to AA so I have my own issues with how that can go.

    • Nancy says:

      Please explain why you are on the fence with alcoholism.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I had a friend, a very close friend – I inherited her from my friends – but I really loved her. She would drink the same exact drinks as us – not more or less – and it would react in her system a certain way, she started blacking out – etc. 
        So she decided to go to AA — and for some reason decided to drop us all even though we never mandated drinking if we go out and if we do drink it’s minimal!?
        I’m upset because I think she had a physical thing with the alcohol. Her family all had alcoholism in the family – so I think she was genetically predisposed. 
        I feel it reacted to her body system — I feel bad for her. I miss her 😦 
        She went on to get pregnant and marry a guy from her AA meeting (a no-no). And drop us for no discernible reason. 
        It pisses me off. 
        She I liked – but other friend I inherited I don’t ! Lol 

        Otherwise – my best friends BIL went into AA and it took over his existence. The mantra, the philosophy. But now he’s off – and drinking but keeping it manageable. He and his twin (my friend’s husband)- just had emotional issues due to their father dying young, etc. He’s fine, not nearly the problem of my friend above. 
        I don’t know – people get lost in the program but I understand it’s all that can help. but I’m so angry about her. Doreen is her name. I’m sad. 
        Speaking of which When a Man Loves a Woman is on these days with Meg Ryan as an alcoholic – great movie. 

        • Nancy says:

          I’m sorry to hear that. AA has been called a cult many times and maybe it is but
          if it gets people sober so they can have a life so be it. Some people need to go to
          meetings everyday and some can stay sober without the 12-steps. Once you have
          some years of sobriety behind you it’s ok if you marry another 12-steper.

          I loved When a Man Loves a Woman as it’s really shows what this disease is
          all about for the alcoholic and the person they are married too.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Nancy I completely agree about AA. I’m wondering about if that is what Brandy needs or rather a really really good pscyhologist or psychiatrist and some nice anti anxiety or anti depression meds. (Not to be mixed with alcohol)
            Some cognitive therapy.

            I’m on the fence for her.
            But I agree completely with you on AA.
            I think my friend broke the rule that she got together with someone too early.

      • chismosa™ says:

        My fence is I don’t know if Brandi is a true blue alcoholic?
        Can she go days without drinking ? And only drinks when she’s taping with the other shrews? ie Ramona

    This was alluded to upthread but I think it bears repeating. Remember our friend the ~. It’s very important. It’s the difference between wishing someone a “Feliz Año Nuevo” and wishing them a “Feliz Ano Nuevo”. And that’s probably a mistake you’d rather not make.
