Top Chef New Orleans “Mississippi Mud Bugs”

Top Chef New Orleans “Mississippi Mud Bugs” by BB

TC 12 2Carlos, Nina, Carrie, Brian, Shirley, Stephanie and Nicholas remain. John Besh is the guest judge for the quick fire and elimination challenges. For the quick fire, the chefs must prepare a version of crawfish etouffee (which means “to smother”). They have 45 minutes and the winner will have immunity. Stephanie is allergic to shellfish and has her epi pen standing by just in case. She won’t be able to taste what she’s making, so Nicholas has offered to help her out. He won’t be helping Carlos out anytime soon after he threw him under the bus in the last episode by telling the judges Nicholas wouldn’t let him use the oven.

When the judges taste Stephanie’s dish, they ask her if she trusts Nicholas to sample her food since she can’t because of her allergy. She tells them yes, hoping he wouldn’t try to sabotage her. Carrie, Nicholas, Stephanie and Carlos were in the bottom for this challenge. Brian, Shirley and Nina were the top three. Shirley wins and has immunity for the elimination challenge.

Louisiana Seafood Council is having a party and the Top Chef contestants will be providing the food. Their challenge will be to create a dish highlighting two different types of Louisiana seafood. They have three hours to prepare food for 200 guests. That night the chefs go to John Besh’s home for some simple Louisiana cooking. They are stoked about eating food prepared by Chef Besh. He tells them that some of the best chefs don’t do well in the competition because they try to do too much and bite off more than they can chew.

TC 12 4Shirley thinks Carrie is taking a risk by making a fritter and not really showcasing Louisiana seafood. Carlos asks to borrow Nicholas’s knife because his isn’t sharp enough to slice his fish as thin as he wants. Nicholas says he only has the one knife, but Carlos thinks Nicholas is only thinking of himself. With 45 minutes left, Carlos asks Nicholas if he can use his knife again. Nicholas is reluctant but lets him use it. He tells Carlos the knife was a wedding gift and to take care of it. Nina thinks her dish may be too complex and off balance.

Brian made grilled swordfish, shrimp and sweet onion puree with fennel daikon relish. His dish is one of the few that’s cooked instead of cold. It seems to be a hit. Nicholas made oyster leek soup, champagne emulsion green apple yogurt and cured amberjack (oysters three ways). Hugh says it’s advanced and technically sound, but not very exciting. Carrie made flounder croquettes with oyster emulsion and pickled cucumbers. John and Tom think it tastes OK, but Tom doesn’t understand why you would want to puree a perfectly good piece of fish. Shirley made tuna and amberjack ceviche with aged soy sauce, lime dressing and toasted pecans. The judges like it. Nina made marinated wahoo with salsa verde, tonnato sauce and pickled vegetables. Tom thinks the flavors are great. Carlos made amberjack ceviche with rustic peach and shrimp relish. Hugh thinks the fish is a little under-seasoned and Tom thinks the fish needs to be cut a little thicker. Stephanie made fried Louisiana oysters with tuna and pickled beech mushrooms. They like it even though people had to wait in a long line to get it. Nicholas went over to get his knife from Carlos and finds it crusty and dirty. Carlos said he didn’t have time to clean it. From this day forward, Nicholas is no longer going to be the nice guy.

TC12 1The judges were disappointed in how many raw dishes were made instead of cooked dishes. The judges liked Nina’s and Shirley’s raw dishes the best and Brian’s and Stephanie’s cooked dishes were also the judges’ favorites. Carlos and Nicholas were not among the judges’ favorites. They didn’t like Carrie’s croquette either. Padma calls Stephanie, Nina and Brian in first. One of them will be the winner and that is the one who exemplified Louisiana seafood the best. It’s Stephanie.

TC 12 3Carrie, Nicholas and Carlos are called in next. Carrie is asked to pack her knives and go to the Last Chance Kitchen, where she competes against Louis. They have to make a broccoli dish and both do a great job. Tom has a tough decision to make, but Louis comes out on top once again.

  1. Good morning – I hope everyone is surviving the storm.

  2. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Yes NMD I survived. But it’s freezing out. Uh…. I went to shovel the snow. And it’s so windy. I didn’t do a detailed shovel. Got it off the sidewalks, some of the driveway. The plow truck came thru last night. The plower had the nerve to leave a big pile in front of my driveway. Idiot. So I moved a lot of that into the street so the cars can drive over it. It’s supposed to be between 6-18 degrees. I think it’s 6. OMG it’s cold. Stay warm and if you don’t have to go out don’t. Have a great day.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Stay safe Powell don’t over exert yourself

      I’m LOLing at LADebra who said she’d hibernate all winter on the east coast since she has sufficient body fat. Lol!!

      Hercules — BE GONE! 🙋⚡️⚡️⚡️🙌

      • HuskerHuny says:

        That happens all the time to us – we dig out our double driveway and then the street plow comes by and shoves about two feet of snow back up into it.

        Sorry to hear about the east coasters and some midwesterners going through this spell of weather. Snuggle up, stay inside and stay warm, dry and safe. It’s 8 degrees where I’m at right now, but the sun in shining, it’s dry and supposed to get above freezing later today. It’s winter, we expect it.

        Congrats Sooners on your BIG win last night in the Sugar Bowl against Alabama. I always cheer for the former Big 8 teams.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi Powellypooh! What a woman! You must be in good shape! Take care!

  3. Michael has a twitter account

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

        I like him-he has more restraint than me b/c when I’m asked to “bring it Bitch”…I BRING IT
        Classic case of “don’t come for me unless I call for you” Brandi called-he should have came for her!!

        • chismosa™ says:

          Ashy that’s our (friendship) mating call 📣📣📣

          LOL

          I love michael. He’s awesome. 💙

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

            Chismosa-our mating call!!!! So funny!!
            I seriously don’t think he was wrong to open his mouth and defend his wife-Brandi has no class and no skills when in disagreement with anyone-all she does is curse and look stupid-she has no wits…at all.

            • mrs peabody says:

              I think it’s funny that she can bring it on until some one stands up to her then all she can do is call names and tell them to STFU, she really is like a child in her actions. She never got past the junior high age imo.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          The funny thing is, she says “bring it bitch” then starts crying. “Bring it bitch” is said only if you are not a professional victim who cries when ” it is brought”

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I didn’t hear Michael raise his voice when talking to Brandi. I loved that he defended his wife as I would have expected my husband to do as well.

      • I also liked that he asked her to stop with the filthy language. Whatever she said was enough for Yo and Lisa to stop and reconsider. I’ll bet everyone was shocked by the string of cursing that poured out of her mouth.

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

          I’m still shocked that she is trying to play victim in this mess and people are buying it. She clearly started in on Joyce with the comment about Joyce’s friends not speaking highly of her and then she looks shocked as hell that Joyce gives it back to her. I’m glad Joyce isn’t backing down-Brandi needs to learn how to communicate without telling people to F off. Not every person in the world needs to F off…a few people yes-but not every person!!

          • kit9 says:

            That’s when Brandi cries-when people give her back a helping of her nastiness. She did it last season with Faye and here she is again, sobbing in the street after she meets her match. And, it infuriates me that Brandi continues to play the woman card! So what if he yelled at her(he didn’t, I know)but so what if he did? She can yell and scream obscenities at men(like she did last year to Maurico)but they’re supposed to treat her like a little porcelain doll in return because she has a uterus? If a woman is going to yell and scream at a man, he damn well has every right to return it in kind. “I don’t think a woman SHOULD EVER talk to a woman like that”, Brandi at the reunion. I’ll use Brandi’s own words for the proper response to that pile of bs, SHUT THE F*CK UP.

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

              I couldn’t agree more kit-why is it okay for her to say whatever she wants to anyone but when it comes back-even in an even tone with no obscenities-she cries? I’m over the victim crap-grow up or quit reality TV!!

              • HuskerHuny says:

                I totally agree with everything said here, but here’s my issue with Brandi (well, one of them). Many people on another blog are defending her actions saying she apologizes and owns her bad behavior. Obviously, she’s not truly sorry, because she KEEP REPEATING HER BAD BEHAVIOR over and over and over . . .

                I totally defended her when it came to Faye’s attacks last year and for what I could see, Faye attacked her for no reason other than to try and make herself relevant. But I never saw Joyce attack or say anything bad about Brandi until Brandi opened her mouth telling Joyce she should confront Lisa about that stupid hair incident. And when Joyce did what Brandi told her to do, Brandi went off the rails and the Joyce hate-a-thon began. Am I right here, isn’t that where it started and do I not have my story straight? If I do, who is truly at fault in starting this?

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

                  I think this is correct HH-Brandi is mad that Joyce told Lisa she was talking behind her back. Brandi told Lisa that Adrienne and the others were talking behind her back during her first season so I don’t get why she is so mad that Joyce is doing the same thing!! Maybe she doesn’t like that Joyce stole a page from her play book!!!

          • chismosa™ says:

            I totally saw that it was Brandi starting with Joyce. For shizzle

            Maybe in her warped mind she was going to continue to say “the friends don’t speak highly of you …………….BUT…………. Id like us to try to start from scratch and maybe we can become cordial?”

            Maybe that’s how brandywine’s warped brain thought she was going to have the conversation flow when she started talking to Joyce ? LOL
            Who for some reason was seated directly across from her.

            And I still find it shady they came last to the dinner. #producers?

            {And jennifer started with the Spanish speaking at Kyle’s store – not Joyce. }

            🔸stilldontlikejoyce

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

              Brandi said that to Joyce to hurt her-that what Brandi does. She says the thing that hurts the most but cries when someone does the same. She always goes in for the kill-it’s her “thing”.
              I get not liking Joyce-is it the pageant thing? The hair thing? What is it? I like her b/c she hasn’t done anything yet except annoy Brandi so I’m good with her!!! Hahaha!!

              • chismosa™ says:

                Yes I’m getting acquainted with how they all do their little machinations.
                #newbie!

                – I just find her dim. I know she has “degrees” and “tiaras” …

                We had this discussion the other day – ✋- it’s just a feeling of not liking someone for no actual reason.
                She’s too Miami KarenT- like for me (also a pageant girl!)
                So maybe that’s it ??? I don’t know.

                :::I may change my mind at any time::

                • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                  Karent is actually very nice in person I will give her that. I could not stand her on the series though.

      • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

        Basically, Michael told Brandi to act like an adult. So she started in on him.

        It’s all on her.

  4. BB – Carlos is such a jerk. Poor Nicholas – he wants to stand tough but is too nice. I hope Carols is next to go.

    • Anne says:

      I’m not a Carlos fan either. I’ve tried to give him the benefit of the doubt with regard to communication, but after last week with the comments about the oven and this week’s incident with the knife, I was hoping that he would go home instead of Carrie. Maybe next week.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        The communication thing stumps me. He said in the judging aspect “what does smother mean” implying he didn’t understand the challenge. I think it was just a ploy for compassion in judging his dish. Had he truly not known, why not ask a fellow cheftestant? I’m sure one of them would have explained. I’m upset he chose to leave someone else’s knife dirty on the prep area and walk away. I expected more of some of these contestants.

        • Anne says:

          I know what you mean. Does he really not understand? Is it Bravo editing? I work with lots of people who are multi-lingual and struggle sometimes with expressing themselves in English, so I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. The behavior about the oven and also the knife, were deciding factors for me. Honesty and taking care of something you borrowed are universal concepts — not dependent on ability to speak or understand English.

          • Pghemtchick says:

            Exactly. I agree on the benefit of doubting him truly understanding, that’s why I can’t understand why he didn’t ask. Even if he had asked in Spanish, I’m sure someone would know. It just seems off to me. Maybe it is editing. It always amazes me how our brains process the same thing sometimes multiple times to get it back to our native/1st language and then repeating the process to answer. Amazing creatures we are.

  5. Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

    Sorry I don’t think Baby should have gotten in the middle of an argument between women a vocal argument. If it was a physical altercation then yes get in the middle to stop it. But arguing back with Brandi “defending” his wife was not cool IMO. Just like I would not think it cool for a woman to get into the middle of two grown men arguing. Maybe changing the subject or getting up with your wife and leaving the situation. But not arguing back.

    • Anne says:

      I don’t think that there is any merit to the criticism of Michael. It easy for us as observers to criticize him, but I don’t think it is deserved. He loves his wife and was probably quite startled by Brandi’s confrontation with his wife. I would imagine he is not accustomed to screaming, swearing, slurring, intoxicated women making nasty remarks to his wife at dinner in a nice restaurant. He reacted, as I would hope that most husbands would, by defending her from someone that he saw attacking her. The real focus should be on Brandi’s poor behavior. She is the one who made rude and totally unneccessary comments about Joyce at a dinner and then wants to cry about being victimized by everyone else, when Joyce didn’t roll over and play dead. There is absolutely no excuse for Brandi’s behavior. #teamnoneof them#

      • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

        I don’t know if he’s accustomed to it or not but he’s in the film industry and surely must know what a reality TV show is. Like I am sure his wife went over things with him before she signed any contracts as he probably had to sign them too. So in my opinion he should not have had a war of words with Brandi it served no purpose but more noise.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Kelly I love michael and I love his love for Hoyce – but you have a point. Joyce can’t play dumb and not know these women might be a little kra kra with her – especially dangling her 36 inches of hair and super skinny body around – she had to expect something other than open arms ! She can’t have imagined it was going to be all unicorns and rainbows, despite it being rich Beverly Hills.
          Plus she has the pageant background so …..

          I still heart Michael but you have a point.

          —- JZ and Mario used to fight on NY. JZ and Simon did too ? I need to think about them…..

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

            JZ used to figh with them and then when she was losing the fight she played the “I’m just a little woman” card ,like Brandi. Who tells a man “bring it bich” and then says “he yelled at me”? He never even raised his voice-Brandi was the one ranting and throwing F bombs but now she claims he “yelled at her”…typical Brandi …poor single broken Brandi…and yet “bring it bitch” rolled off her tongue.

            • chismosa™ says:

              I feel you ✊

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I consider myself to be an “Equal Rights-Equal Fights” type of girl. Of course I don’t mean a 300lb roided out maniac screaming and menacing over a little old lady because of parking space….

              This is modern world, we have women who have been launched into outer space, who serve in combative roles in our armed forces, women who are captains of industry, political leaders ect….so the notion of “How dare a man speak to me in a firm tone (when I am screaming and swearing like a lunatic” doesn’t wash with me.

              Vickie G from the OC is another one who is famous for saying “Bring it” then when someone does lower the boom acts like she was just sucker punched while she was serving the homeless in a food kitchen.

              Screw that…

              • Pghemtchick says:

                ^5

              • designernailsdiana says:

                Maybe my scrambled brain is confused, nothing new there, but wasn’t “Bring It On” a movie-series about Cheer leading?? I think when some dumb HW says “Bring It” the local cheer leading squad should run out and begin the contest. If Brandi can successfully land on her feet after flipping off the tower of cheer while doing summersaults (sp?) then she can win, but not WHINE!

                My DH had to listen to a friend of ours bad mouth me for a couple of their “coffee clatches” after the friend got married. His new bride failed to fill him in on the whole story and only heard the “Diana didn’t do what she promised to do”. DH finally shut him down and filled him in on the missing parts. She and I have not seen nor spoken with each other in a year. My life is happier without her trying to drag me down to her level.
                If I promise something I do it unless I’m in ER, then it’ll be delayed.
                So I applaud Michael standing up for Joyce (My auntie is named Joyce so it’s a very special name to me and my auntie is rail thin not fat at all). If Michael had shushed Joyce then that would have upset me.
                A gentle “Can we discuss this at a later time instead of during a nice dinner out?” would have been great to hear from someone.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  LOL- I think you are right..it reminds me of something I saw in one of those parody movies when one cheerleader told the other to “Bring it”.

                  I wish Joyce said something like this..

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  P.S. It sounds like you are a lot better of without that ‘so-called’ friend. 🙂

        • Anne says:

          So which rules of polite society apply in reality TV? I’m curious. Is there is a rule that permits a woman to get drunk, belligerent, scream obscenities and other insults at a dinner party in a nice restaurant? Is there another rule that prohibits the husband of the subject of the obscenities and insults from defending his wife, because men aren’t supposed to argue with women? Michael didn’t yell or use profanity. Michael also allowed his hostess (Lisa) to try to defuse the situation — which neither she nor her husband was doing very effectively.

          • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

            Like I said it is my opinion. Just like Micheal stating in the limo the episode before that Brandi needed an intervention when he has met her like about 4 times. Seriously he and Joyce need a story line that does not revolve around Brandi. Maybe she can continue to talk about his big pipi.

            • ladebra says:

              wow

              • JustDee says:

                ???
                He did say she needed an intervention and per Joyce’s blog at the time he had met Brandi twice – very briefly. She was explianing how Brandi did not know her husband AT ALL.

                • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                  Yolo even told Joyce’s husband we girls will have our issues and differences but the men should not get involved and he said “Not going to happen with me”

            • chismosa™ says:

              I mean what else is Joyce bringing to the table ?
              Carlton’s story is the sex dungeon and her Wicca. Without the conflict with B….. Joyce ? What? The pageant she created ? Trying to launch some hair product line? What else ? Would be a bit mehhhh

              I do wonder how much michael had seen of B before them signing on the dotted line to be under contract. He also heard the story from his wife so of course he sees it from her pov and sticks with her.

              He’s in Hollywood, thus he knows of this reality tv lunatic that used to be married to what- D-level/ C-level ? actor Eddie C., the breakup there, etc ….he seems like a man who thinks carefully, media-wise, before moving.

              Again, jadore michael. 🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪
              J’a can’t get enough of him.

              You’re entitled to your opinion kelly. I hear you. 👂

              • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                Thanks Chismosa

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Now, that I’ve seen this side of Brandi, I can’t help but wonder did she become a professional victim after the divorce or was she always like this? The hit hard and then run/cry foul personality seems so deep seated or is it seeded? Going into this season she had everything any girl could want, a career on t.v., a big fan base, a best seller, beauty, good health, beautiful children who have a supportive father, but she still came into this season as the injured victim. She entered lashing out at her co-stars, challenging people, hitting below the belt, in other words hurting the other “guy” before they hurt her and then crying victim (again). This pattern,,,is it because of being cheated on or is it part of her persona from childhood? It’s really hard to break patterns, really really hard especially if they are part of what formed you. Either way it’s on HER to fix herself. In the real world, the rest of civilized society will not usually accommodate Her. Some people will just shut up and let Her do her thing (out of fear or discomfort) others will make excuses for her (out of love)…. but others will fight back when attacked and perhaps even expose her and shine a blinding light on her. Some people thrive under a spotlight, some don’t.

                My opinion.

                • chismosa™ says:

                  Ok Lainey- I was missing all this discussion today–//and it was directed at me saying Joyce had no storyline.
                  That’s my opinion- sorry.

                  Yes of course it adds to B’s storyline and in fact may move forward her story of going against Lisa —

                  But it’s still MHO about Joyce
                  Sorry!
                  Love you hope you still love me ! Lol

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    I wasn’t directing anything at you, I was only speaking on the topic of Joyce needing a new storyline. Brandi has (I think) tweeted that or maybeit was in her open letter, oh and lots of people on twitter repeat her sentiment that Joyce wouldn’t have a storyline without Brandi. It wasn’t meant to be personal. i dont even remember you saying that. seriously! In a sense,it’s true that brandi gave her this storyline, but my point is that it’s (this storyline) working out well for Joyce but not so much for Brandi. So far, the storyline has had favorable results for Joyce. So why get a new one?

                    • chismosa™ says:

                      Oh ok got it. Sorry don’t follow the tweets —-

                      I hear you 👂👂👂👂

                      Loud and clear. Breaker breaker 1,2,3

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    Why would I stop loving you? LOL! Silly, of course I still love ya.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                We are all entitled to our opinions!

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I think Brandi needing some type of intervention is the consensus of most viewers of the show and her castmates. In next weeks episode, she comes out and says she has mental health issues,it doesn’t take a profession to conclude that fueling yourself with booze while on a cocktail of medications is detrimental.

              I think Brandi is more of a need of a different storyline that doesn’t involve getting wasted and talking shit..followed by a fit of tears.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              This storyline that Brandi handed them on a silver platter is working quite nicely. Joyce is gaining supporters and the viewers’ eyes are now open to the real Brandi. It’s a win win for Joyce, why does SHE need a new storyline?!? She doesn’t. Brandi, the self proclaimed “gangsta” however DOES, need Joyce to have a different storyline. Good luck with that, Brandi. She, herself, keeps perpetuating this storyline. She won’t drop it, thus, the storyline you think needs changing will never die. Only Brandi can kill it.

              • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                Joyce has a right to stand up for herself . Brandi has been out of line towards her several times. But Joyce has stood up for herself by sinking to Brandi’s level. She has made backhanded comments about her being single, saying maybe she’d have someone if she was a better person.. She’s called her racist (Which she’s NOT) because of one insensitive comment , never mind the fact that she was married to a Cuban man and had children with him who are half Cuban. Never mind she has dated a biracial man and has many friends from different cultural backgrounds.
                Joyce claiming that Brandi brought her African American friend to Kyle’s fitting to make herself look good was a disgusting statement (and made her seem to be the racist one) that was clearly false.
                If Joyce was the class act she wants everyone to believe she is. She would not be as equally gross in her behavior. Yes she covers her behavior with her sweet disposition but she needs to take the high road. Calling Brandi a bully really diminishes the suffering of those who are bullied and who are also affected by racism on a daily basis. Also please she needs to stop playing with her hair. Pantene will call soon enough.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  It’s not just one insensitive comment. Be that as it may, Joyce is doing great with this storyline, and Brandi?? Not so much. That’s all I’m saying. I’m not saying Joyce is perfect, no need to list all of her imperfections, but by all means g’head….but that was never part of my comment or opinion,…my comment was solely based on the notion that Joyce needs a new storyline. She doesn’t. she’s “winning” and Brandi? Not so much.

                  • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

                    Well Joyce “winning” is your opinion and I will agree to disagree. In my opinion it’s ok to list Brandi’s imperfections day in and day out so why not Joyce’s too.

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      I was just trying to stay on topic, which is why I didn’t list Brandi’s imperfections in my comment about how Joyce “needs a new storyline.” But of course, anyone can and should make those lists of they so desire. there is a list of imperfections for every housewife. i have a long ilist as a matter of fact of my imperfections, but it has little or nothing to do with the subject of whether or not Joyce needs a new storyline.

                      Brandi seems to be upset with this storyline, thus the youtube videos, the “open letter”, etc. but it is she who handed this storyline to Joyce. This storyline would not exist for Joyce had Brandi never handed it to her. Maybe in your opinion, Joyce is not “WINNING” but in my opinion and as a matter of fact, this storyline helped win me over as a fan of Joyce’s. there are many who would never have even heard of Joyce, had it not been for this storyline. So, I maintain that Joyce has no reason to change the storyline, it’s mostly affecting her favorably with the public who otherwise wouldn’t have had a chance to see her dealing quite handily (not perfectly, of course) but quite handily with Brandi and her faux gangsta toughness, unlike any other housewife or house husband in history. The faux gangsta who says bring it and then cries on camera. That’s what the previews hint at,…I could be wrong, but she said “bring it” at the dinner and the previews show her crying at or near the dinner table. Again, storyline not going well for her in that scene. Doesn’t look like Joyce will be crying. Though I could be wrong.

              • Exit4 says:

                I think the same thing-why is Brandi conflict Joyce’s storyline? Who says it’s not the opposite? She’s been coming at Joyce and Lisa before the season started. Brandi made a classic Jill Zarin mistake. Went after a castmate and the cast mate didn’t play ball-making Brandi look bad. Only exception is Jill and b were friends.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Yes, Jill miscalculated, Brandi miscalculated. They were prob thinking “hey, this is not how I planned it!”

          • Dreamboat says:

            Brandi did not appear to be drunk at that dinner to me. I never her heard her scream during dinner? She was no more belligerent than Joyce, who talked over everyone.

            • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

              I did not hear her yelling either. They were all talking in about the same tone.

            • chismosa™ says:

              I’m NEW 💥💥💥to BH and she seemed the least drunk I’ve seen her all season.

              She’s still a god awful mess

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                I think we need to couple that with what we know was happening outside of the show…getting carried out of bars half naked not to mention…

                “Sssssssstawp SSSStra SSStra tegizing Leezzzzzzza” hiccup

              • LaineyLainey says:

                “She seemed the least drunk…” I imagine someone saying that me or my kids….what a “compliment”…Hey! Lainey was the least drunk I’ve seen her all season! That says a lot.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Oops, about me

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  That was actually my New Years resolution this year….I wanted to be less drunk this year than last year…unfortunately…it ended shortly after midnight jk

                  Actually for New Years Eve, I spent the majority of it lying in bed watching tv…then just before midnight my husband and I…and Ryanne since she just happened to wake up went downstairs where my MIL was…and watched the ball drop. Then I went back to bed lol.

              • chismosa™ says:

                I’m glad I made rabble and Lainey die laughing but I was honest– IMHO – in all earnestness – for a dinner faceoff- this time Brandi seemed somewhat collected.

                I’m not counting real-life events as they are not in the narrative right now.
                (I hate the behind the scenes ! It’s so annoying for people who watch with no insider info!)

                Jmho!
                Giggle at me all you want it’s cool !

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  As long as you hopefully know, I am laughing with you….and never at you 😀

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Ok, thanks, sometimes you’re funny and you don’t even know it. I thought you were being earnest but it still made me laugh. I do think that it says a lot about B that you would make that comment about her on air behavior, not real life, since we’re not privy to that. It was cute that you gave her that compliment. It was a nice thing to say! Just hit my funny bone.

                  • chismosa™ says:

                    Well actually for her to attack Joyce back and go all medieval on their a$$es at the table while NOT so inebriated is not quite a compliment to Brandi! It means she’s like this wine or no wine!

                    But ….
                    I’m glad you and RR see I’m just a little BHVirgin newbie.

                    Brandi needs psych help. That is what it is ; I agree Lainey with what you said- I wonder if she was like this BEFORE the Eddie breakup

          • kit9 says:

            Oh, that’s for sure! Lisa surely wasn’t effectively defusing the situation. The only thing she was trying to diffuse was Joyce! Not the obnoxious a**hole that started it. No defusing for her precious Brandi. What in the world happened to Lisa’s strategy of keeping Brandi from acting a fool? Oh, wait, no. That’s just a lie she made up to explain Brandi’s ‘strategizing’ comment.

      • JustDee says:

        If someone was calling me RACIST! BULLY! RACIST! BULLY! nonstop, I’d probably start flinging the F word around too. There’s no sane way to defend yourself against those words. (Which IMO are WAY worse than the F word).

        • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

          So true JustDee. I think I would too if in the same situation/

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            And if I was the butt of someones racist jokes and remarks and antagonized by them in the same fashion that school yard bullies behave…I just might call them a “racist bully”.

        • chismosa™ says:

          I think id pull a Ramona to Kelly and scream “oh just go flip your hair Joyce I can’t speak to you -you just don’t get it” and stomp away ….. Lol

          • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

            OR a GO TO SLEEP GO TO SLEEP!!! lol

          • JustDee says:

            😆

          • chismosa™ says:

            I think I literally would see Ramona, on camera – go up to Joyce and say, eyes verrrrry wide 👀 – “Joyce, now I see you have this thing where you flip your hair a lot so I just wanted to give you a little present. To help you”

            And then hand her a scrunchie. 1985-style. Not new style.

            Ramona would do that, unabashedly ! God I can’t wait to see her on tv again.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Brandi called her stupid first. She took the risk that Joyce would be quiet while Brandi called her names. She miscalculated. If you (not you, Just dee) don’t like drama don’t start it.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Do you feel that Ken shouldn’t have defended Brandi when Kyle’s hubby decided to air his and prolly his wife’s opinion (since she basically told him she didn’t want to hear anymore) at the dinner? Iirc, that started as a female discussion.

      I’m in agreement with Anne here. He wasn’t yelling at her. Rewatch the Sur scenes where Lisa is asking about Kristen. Michael is talking and Yolo is heard speaking louder and over him. Producers playing mic tricks? Doubtful as the amplified mics are Lisa’s and Stossi’s/Katie (whichever one it was). I find it very hard to believe that MoHadid, Martin, or Ken would sit there while Michael verbally tore Brandi a new one. The fact that he sat there and took Brandi’s language and xenophobic ‘go back to where you’re from’ comments (interesting as she’s at a table of immigrants), speaks volumes on class and character to me.
      Michael and Joyce did make a mistake tho. They argued with stupid and expected to win.

      • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

        I never said he yelled at Brandi. I said he argued back and forth with her. Not sure what scene about Ken defending Brandi you are speaking about. I assume the Morroccan dinner scene last season. I vaguely remember it but I believe Mauricio did get a little loud with Brandi and Ken defended her. If that is the scene then yes I agree Ken did the right thing and told Mo to pipe down. So I stand by my opinion Micheal -baby whatever his name is should not have gotten in a war of words with Brandi. Again just my opinion.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          No one should get into a war of words with Brandi. She will drag you down to her level and beat you with experience. I find the high road always is the best choice and Brandi needs a map to get to it.

          • Pghemtchick says:

            ^5 Husker. There is no reasoning when every other word is “f&?!”

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            Brandi couldn’t find it even if she was driven there in a chauffeured limo.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Anyone and everyone should argue with her. Her vocabulary is limited. She’s not even a worthy opponent in a war of words.

          • designernailsdiana says:

            I recall a saying “Tis better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open the mouth and remove all doubt”
            I try to ignore people who want to fight with me, but I’m not usually filming a faux reality show either.

      • Anne says:

        Good point, pghemtchick. You can’t argue with stupid and expect to win or get the last word.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Did Brandi say “go back to where you came from” after he said something like – “you’re from a different world Or something !” And Baby’s wife said “you’re from planet trash” –?

        Just wondering if B said “go back ” — After someone said to her about where she comes from ???

        And never forget ….. Words to live by:

          • chismosa™ says:

            Boobah – HOLA- I meant to answer you yesterday – yes the winter storms are now getting “names”.

            All are gods and goddesses from mythology. I think our 1st storm was named Athena this past fall.

            • Boobah says:

              Ahhh, okay. I remember we had Nemo, but I was confused about what kind of storm is named, like if there was a criteria or something that had to be met. Thank You, chis. Hope you are staying warm!

        • Pghemtchick says:

          I’ll have to find the replay. I don’t recall it prior to the trash comment, but after the what planet do you live on comment after she started fbombing and bring it bitching. Seems like a logic question when someone finds that acceptable behavior at a dinner. I’m going to try to find a clip before I comment further tho, as I need a refresher because I’m not in the mood to be swooped upon because my human recollection was faulty. Lol. Thanks Chismosa for the reminder and possible double meaning. ❤ off to look I go since it's not on in demand.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Yeah I don’t remember. I’m sure it will repeat. The last 15 minutes are all we need.

            I think Brandy came back with “YOU go back to where YOU” came from AFTER they said something about where she came from. I just don’t want her to get clumped into the xenophobic thing when at that particular moment it was just in retaliation.
            She should just stay in her area of 5150 –

            —not excusing her other bad comments.

            Brandy is still crazy ! Don’t worry !

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I don’t feel that Brandi being called Xenophobic is hinged on a single comment but really more of a pathology of stupid and offensive remarks.

              I do remember Micheal saying something like “What planet do you come from?” Followed by a planet earth/trash exchange but I still feel the root of Brandi’s comment was still directed at her seeing Micheal as ‘foreigner’. In the same fashion that she was “Going to kill a Puerto Rican” or that the Spanish language should be exclusive to Miami.

              Even in her blog, she never addressed why she empathized “Puerto Rican” -only that she wasn’t making a legitimate death threat , I also think that’s why the day after the episode she said she was going to “kill” her dogs…she wants project that it’s just a euphemism.

              • Pghemtchick says:

                Exactly. Okay more points to be made here after watching a clip:

                1. Why is it not okay for Michael to defend Joyce but it’s okay for MoHadid to defend Brandi and her black comment? If you rewatch the clip, MoHadid is trying to explain to Joyce that sometimes people day stuff (he uses the Arabic skiing example) and that doesn’t make them racist, and while trying to make his point that people sometimes joke around Brandi cuts him off and both talk to which he even says “hold on a minute, please” “excuse me please” to get Brandi to shush and let him finish and she over talks him by saying about her gorlfriends this morning. MoHadid had a valid point of sometimes people make insensitive nonPC jokes and was covering Brandi and trying to calm the racial seas when Brandi just fanned the waters more. Watch the respect and quietness of Joyce and Michael listening to MoHadid. Also notice BOTH Mohadid and Ken place their hands on Brandi in an attempt to calm/restrain her. Mohadid puts his arm around her back to hold her shoulder when she starts getting more irate and Ken looks to touch her hand.

                After Lisa asks to stop, Michael says to her basically you have to see that this is unacceptable while Brandi and Joyce yammer. He then asks Brandi what planet she lives on. This seems either well calculated or just a OMG I can’t believe this is happening am I dreaming moment. What planet would this behavior at a dinner table be acceptable type comment. Brandi replies ‘Earth where do you f’n live?’ Before Joyce quips in with Planet Trash Michael shakes his head and laughs and starts to say “I somehow live here with you” and then makes a secondary amazement comment that he somehow lives in the same planet.
                That’s the end of this clip:
                http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills/season-4/videos/what-planet-does-brandi-glanville-live-on
                The go back comment wasn’t in this one, but Michael twice stated he somehow lived on the same planet as Brandi-so where was he going back to?

                Ah, onto the next clip. Hopefully it’ll have the end of that comment.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  You said it sister….

                  IMO the whole planet earth/plant back and forth was the set up for Brandi to say what she really thinks “Go back to where you came from”.

                  Again..’You’re black’ (in reference to not being able to swim’
                  “Stop speaking Spanish, this isn’t Miami”
                  “People speaking Spanish in front of me makes me feel like it’s a club that I am not invited to”
                  “I am going to kill a Puerto Rican”
                  “Go back where you came from”

                  ect….there is a reason why her brain keeps on making these types of connections and IMO they are way too numerous to be taken as a one -off .

    Happy New Year All! I’m a little late with the greeting, I know. Thanks for all the great blogs and comments over the holiday season. I have been off for over 2 weeks now, school holiday break and then two snow days. I am looking forward to getting back to normal on Monday. The kids will take some time to readjust I’m sure. We only got 6 inches of snow here in Northern NJ, but it’s cold and windy. Since we have a town where almost everyone is bused to school, the powers that be choose safety first. Going to meet some friends for lunch now that the sun it out and LavaMan did the driveway.

    Watching BH is not too enjoyable for me. But I’ll stick with it. Looking forward to Dowtown Abbey on Sunday night and LavaSon and LavaDaughter got me hooked on Breaking Bad. I’m on Season 2 but I already saw most of the last two seasons plus the finale. Take care all. Keep up the good work. Stay warm.

  9. HuskerHuny says:

    How about my boy Seth Aaron on Project Runway All-Stars last night? His dress was so . . . well, something I wouldn’t wear, but really pretty to look at. I’ve always liked him since he won his season. Hope he can win the whole thing next week. He is an original for sure. Kotto does make clothing for women and it’s always very wearable. I don’t know about Elena. She’s a bit forgettable to me and that’s not good for a designer.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Ok I really really like Seth A as a person and I think his attention to detail is better than anyone else’s. I was SO happy when he won his season. his and Elena’s A to D are the tops.

      I am completely upset, however, that they allowed past winners on. I disagree completely and utterly on that.

      Kotto/(they don’t pronounce that R for some reason)- speaks of herself in the 3rd person and always talks about her being African, etc. I find her standoffish. I am team elena. Wackiness and all.

      So glad Christopher is gone. Found him a bit bitc*y and moody and hoity toity. I don’t like what he pulled with the other designer that time, taking the idea or whatever.

  10. Exit4 says:

    I don’t know how the heck you northern staters and Midwesterners deal with this cold! Lol! Don’t mind the snow-it’s 7 inches which isn’t totally unusual, but 17 degrees with a wind chill of 0?? No way!!!

    The older one is begging to go outside, but the baby, I think will stay in. But the older one has to go it alone! I had strep A/pneumonia almost 6 years ago. Spent about a week in the hospital and another 10 says with a pic line and a giant machine pumping me full of antibiotics. Not fun! I’m completely fine now-but extreme heat and extreme cold really bothers me. So, he just has to hang in the back while I watch from the kitchen. I won’t make it….

    As for Joyce’s husband-if anyone in real life-was being confronted like Joyce was, regardless of who started it, you would expect your husband or significant other to say something. It’s no different on a TV show. Even if you sign up for the crazy-when you sign up and ARE the crazy you should expect at some someone will bite back. The husbands have gotten involved in NJ and no one complains. Brandi doesn’t get any special treatment-half her problem is that she believes she should!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      She does think she should get special treatment and I don’t get why!! Because she doesn’t have a man she should be able to say whatever she wants to any man? That makes no sense-she told a man “bring it bitch” and expected him to say “sorry you poor delicate single flower mother of 2 who got cheated on-go ahead and say whatever you want to me and I will sit here and take it”? Seriously? In real life I would never tell a man to “bring it bitch” but if I were single and my husband cheated on me I could? Who says that to someone and then cries?

      • Exit4 says:

I hate to be the bearer of bad news-but she’s a housewife! 🙂 A reality TV star-their demand in Hollywood is pretty limited to begin with! I doubt Spielberg or Scorsese were considering her for a role!

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

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

  13. Exit4 says:

    I do agree in some ways that the word bullying is overused. Even with kids sometimes-extreme cases obviously excluded! I think anyone who went through middle school (who was a girl at least) had their “day”, so to speak. Obviously, we didn’t have internet, social media, texting and all that-it was limited to school and maybe a few prank calls or not getting invited to a party. Stood up at the mall or deliberately excluded from Xmas gifts (that happened to me!). And I fully admit that when my “day” , week or month was over-I was right there “bullying” the next “victim”. So to speak. Really, these shows could have been filmed in my 7th grade class!

    Bullying is an action, but I also think its a feeling. I have felt bulliedas an adult- in my sorority by a certain group of meanies-who went after lots of girls for no reason, in a job I had after college…. I can’t say if it met some kind of clinical definition-but when you’re in a group and one person (or more) are kind of coming at you, you do feel bullied and ganged up on. How can you not?

    Bullying is also a power thing. What better way to put someone in their place then go at them, try to embarrass them to make yourself look better and hold the power. When Alexis felt bullied on OC, tamra didn’t feel like she was a bully, but apologized because no one should be made to feel that way. I think one of her kids was going through it and she could relate.

    Maybe there just needs to be a new word. Like “housewifed”. While I won’t call Brandi a bully per se-she does share some of the qualities of a bully. But then again most of us do and it’s almost par for the course with housewives! Here’s an interesting article!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      I’m tired of HWs saying the “bully” word all the time but I’m also tired of women being “bitches” and acting like that’s ok. Brandi said something like “I wasn’t being a bully I was being a bitch”-cause that’s so much better? When did being a bitch become a woman’s right? Cutting another woman down to make yourself feels better is bitchy-it ain’t cute. It’s especially not cute to do it on TV! It’s even worse to do it and expect to be protected because you are single or drunk or because you miss your kids or the elastic in your thong is annoying you or whatever other excuse you can come up with. Being a bitch isn’t Brandi’s “right”-but if she wants it to be she better be ready for other woman to have the same “right” and dry her eyes! She claims she “owns” her mistakes-I don’t see her “owning” a damn thing….EVER!!!

      • Powell says:

        Right JNNTJ. It’s ok if you’re a woman saying you’re a bit*h but you don’t like it if a man calls you a bit*h. Remember Paul called Brandi a bit*h? She didn’t like it at all.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Powell I personally don’t like men saying the b- word.

          But I think I’m alone in that thinking.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I agree, when you are a victim of bullying, it can be a feeling, too. I do think Alexis was bullied on OC. I do think Brandi tried to bully Joyce. Not saying you said this Joyce, but whenever a hw points out the bullying behavior….The bullies will say “how dare you use that word, when there are kids dying or killing themselves…etc.”. I don’t buy that someone has to die for it to be serious or real bullying. Those who took their lives were relentlessly pounded with bullying, and I’ll bet that when some of them said they were feeling bullied they were most likely met by someone along the way with…”what?! bullying!?? Bullying is a serious thing, there are people dying…etc.”. My opinion.

      • Exit4 says:

        You make a good point Lainey! No, being bullied doesn’t have to equal death. And it isn’t limited to kids. Where do kids learn the behavior from? Adults.

        Jill you too-being a bitch isn’t a positive quality! Everyone has bitchy moments, but when it’s constantly pointed at one person-it’s a fine line! Like Alex on NY, she got it pretty bad-but the difference with Alex was she didn’t like it, but could take it without turning into a shrew.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Sorry Exit 4, I called you Joyce in my comment. Oooopsy

  15. WOOHOO NO SCHOOL MONDAY IN MINNESOTA. The governor said so. Right Lulu???
    haha This is the fourth or fifth time a governor has closed schools. Of course I have to work Monday because who closes a mall?? UGH
    Ok back up to read the blog. I just had to do my woohoo “in a non vicki voice”

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hahahaha “in a non Vicki voice”. Good one

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Maybe if you asked really nice, the governor could close the malls as well! My co-worker is from Minnesota and just came into my office to tell me about Minnesota closing the schools on Monday for the entire state. She said it happened while she was in high school – early 90s or so.

      • designernailsdiana says:

        Yes ’90’s like ’94 ’95 and ’97.
        It’s not always cold or snowy here. We have the best spring and summer seasons and then we get the beautiful fall colors on our trees.
        I’ll thawed out by June.

      🙂 the governor is quite fond of the school bus. He looks forward to it every school day. No snow day for him! If he had his way that is.

  16. Great blog BB. Read Hugh’s blog on Bravo. Love this guy. He actually threw some “shade” to Padma on his recap. Wrote that Padma was lecturing the chefs on “etouffee” when she did not know what it was until about 2 minutes prior to Quickfire. BUURRRNN…….Padma a big fake. Can’t stand her.

    • BB says:

      I don’t think Padma is that popular among the other judges. I had read somewhere about Tom and Padma not really liking each other.

    • Powell says:

      Padma isn’t a real foodie is she? I’ve never thought she was, although I don’t know very much about her.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Time for Padma to move on. Top Chef needs a breath of fresh air. I like Hugh and keep Tom. Gail is O.K. and certainly knows her food, but nothing too exciting there. Trying to think of past judges and who would be good. Not a big Bourdain fan; I think he likes himself a bit too much. I used to love this show, but I’m getting bored quickly.

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

          I love Tom but Padma seems to have become boring-they need someone fresh!! But not Bourdain-I do not like him at all! He thinks he’s too good for every damn thing and he calls everyone else a sell out…he’s played himself out!!

  17. Cartwheels says:

    I have read some comments and the debate as to who said stupid first, whether it was Joyce of Brandi it really doesn’t matter (it was Brandi who used the word first BTW) but IMO that is not how this started.
    This fiasco started way before the dinner was even put in place. It is funny how Lisa and Yolanda pretended that they were going to have a meeting and Joyce quickly will move on and like nothing happened, well it is not that simple.
    Let’s take the racial remarks done by Brandi before the dinner, her telling that she can’t swim so she must be black, she must have a weave and that is why she can’t swim, purposely changing her name because in Brandi’s mind Joyce is not a latina name, telling to STFU and not speak in Spanish because they were not in Miami, those remarks are not cute or just teasing like Brandi wants to put out there, they were done with malice, but even if we pretend that Brandi never said any of them, her awful behavior still stands for itself, the berating of Joyce at the roof top when she basically called her a bitch, her purposely forgetting her name, telling her that he name was of a fat pig, telling her to STFU during the dinner she was hosting in PS, being completely a moron during Yolanda’s dinner and taunting her for calling her husband baby when two inches away from her is Yolanda who calls David her King, her love, etc, telling Gigi that Joyce is jealous of her as a fact, all of that behavior is despicable enough, add the racial remarks and we do not have to women who are coming to a dinner on equal terms ready to apologize, we have a woman who has acted like an ass&^le on different events, has “teased”, taunted, ridicule and humiliate another one with the support of her two side kicks Yolanda and Lisa.

    Brandi should have come to this meeting ready to apologize not once but as many times as necessary for how stupid she had acted towards Joyce, there is just simply no excuse for her behavior. Yolanda and Lisa should have help Brandi to realize how disgusting is to treat a person like this for no obvious reason, but based on my observations of Brandi’s behavior and attitude at Kyle’s store and at the dinner before Joyce arrival, Brandi was not sorry at all, she was not there to apologize, it was almost like she thought she was there to receive an apology which is funny.

    Joyce has let us know that a big part of the dinner was edited out and at the beginning of the dinner everything was sort of okay, Joyce was talking with Lisa about her book , Joyce admitted having bought the books from all of them but haven’t had time to read them yet, then there comes the moment with Mohammed, how did Joyce meet Mohammed? and what is the first thing that comes out of Brandi’s mouth? Have you two dated? did you have sex? right in front of her husband, my jaw hits the floor. Who does that? I think that is the moment when the Ohovens realized that Brandi was not there to make peace or apologize to Joyce for her disgusting behavior, then to add salt to the injury she tells Joyce that they have friends in common and those friends do not speak highly of her, what did Brandi think was going to happen? Of course she got a reaction and that is what Brandi was hoping for , a reaction, a reaction that will make all her previous bad behavior go away, by getting a reaction she thought she would be back in her comfortable position of the victim and that is why she keep ranting, the Ohovens should have left, at that point it was obvious that Lisa and Yolanda were there not as mediators but firmly on Brandi’s side. IMO in the real world Michael would have stood up and left with his wife but I am sure in the world of reality TV that is not that easy.
    Brandi is like the bully of the school yard, she is bold and arrogant enough to pick and poke, to taunt and tease, she is relentless but as soon as any of her targets reacts, she cries murder.
    In this particular situation I am glad that Joyce and her husband were coherent enough to articulate their thoughts and their grievances, Joyce had all the right to feel that Brandi was using racial slurs against her because Brandi has, can you imagine if Joyce had heard the other remark about “killing a Puerto Rican”?
    Brandi hasn’t said just one remark, she has said many and all of them equally offensive, she said she was trying to be funny , that it was not meant to hurt but to tease, well Joyce was the object of the teasing and she obviously didn’t find it cute.
    Brandi acted like a bully and deserved to be called on it.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Some viewers have mentioned that the Ohovens came with a chip on their shoulder and ready to fight, can you blame them? This was not a one time offense, this were offensive remarks done during different opportunities, like Joyce said “for me Brandi is chopped liver until she apologizes”, Joyce was right to think that there should be an apology , instead she found a petulant and arrogant lady who felt even stronger because her two BFFs were right there with her and ready to stand up for her and make excuses for her behavior.
        This was not Brandi vs Joyce and her husband, this was Brandi, Lisa and Yolanda against Joyce and her husband. I normally would agree that you just can’t go down to Brandi’s level when she is being an a^hole but 1)Brandi was not drunk, 2) Brandi knew exactly what she was doing when she asked Joyce if she has had sex with Mohammed as if the only way for a person like Joyce to know a man like Mohammed would be by being a sex toy, that was totally disrespectful but even then Michael try to play to off as a joke. 3) Why is it okay for Brandi to “joke” , to act like an lunatic, to run her mouth with profanities and everybody just have to ignore almost as a child throwing a tantrum.
        Brandi this time picked on the wrong person and she is now crying because she miscalculated , oh well, there has to always be a first time.
        Ignoring obviously doesn’t work with Brandi and Palm Springs and the Fosters’ dinner is the perfect example.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Only some people think it’s ok for Brandi to do all those things without consequence….only some. It’s not ok with me.

        • Powell says:

          I think they came w/their eyes wide open and prepared not to let Brandi say whatever she wanted to say.

    • LaineyLainey says:

    • Powell says:

      Cartwheels you spelled it out from A to Z. If I were Michael and Joyce I would have got up and walked out. I don’t give a flying flip what Bravo, the production team or Andy have to say that’s how it would have went down.

      • Cartwheels says:

        There was a moment when I thought I heard Michael said “we are out of here”, not sure though but I am sure if he did, production interfered with it. Brandi suffers from diarrhea of the mouth and something tells me that more often than not she gets her way because of that, people just don’t want to go that low and fight with her so they just back down.
        Anytime that somebody effectively and without losing their cool calls her out on her BS she falls down to pieces and goes to her safe place where she is the victim, victim of a cheater, victim of a millionaire lawsuit, victim of a jealous Puerto Rican, victim, victim, victim.
        Brandi said to Michael “Bring it on bitch” and when he did then she started crying and going back to her “how can you be so mean to me, don’t you know I am a single mother, that I have no man to defend me, that I am depressed, how could you” BS

    • mrs peabody says:

      You are a 100% correct. I think Brandi is a bully as she has been taunting her all along and that is one of the things bullies do. I also think she is racist because she keeps saying these things. One time could be a joke but to do it over and over it becomes more than a joke. Just because she has friends of different races and cultures does not necessarily mean she is not a racists inside, she just hides it well. The way I see her is that her actions are speaking a lot louder than her words are.

      • cusi77 says:

        You put it all the way I see it, Cartwheels. 100% agree.

        Brandi’s excuse for the following 3 episodes (before they aired) was that she was acting b*chy, nothing else, was to prepare us to judge her as she was having fun, to not judge her hardly…

        She knew what she was going to do on PS… First provocation was “The famous” (offended me) bikini, probably knowing that IF Joyce was a Latina, she would react when seeing the Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe… she got no reaction… then she call her with a wrong name… she was with provocations to get Joyce mad… She pushed the further she could, but had not the reaction she expected. The rest it is excellent put by you! I totally agree with your opinion!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I am sure I saw in one of those Bravo clips. where I think it was Lisa saying something to try and quiet Brandi …something to the effect of ‘Oh, go wear your bikini’. There is no way I think her wearing Our Lady of Guadalupe was just a coincidence. It was clearly meant to be provocative. which is why the #slutpig and the #witch had their stupid little scene about it.

      Got sidetracked with a Boonephew visit so stopped reading dilute to real life. So I’m late, but great post! So well written.

  18. LaineyLainey says:

    I should have out this vp comment here…sorry for duplication:

    Now, that I’ve seen this side of Brandi, I can’t help but wonder did she become a professional victim after the divorce or was she always like this? The hit hard and then run/cry foul personality seems so deep seated or is it seeded? Going into this season she had everything any girl could want, a career on t.v., a big fan base, a best seller, beauty, good health, beautiful children who have a supportive father, but she still came into this season as the injured victim. She entered lashing out at her co-stars, challenging people, hitting below the belt, in other words hurting the other “guy” before they hurt her and then crying victim (again). This pattern,,,is it because of being cheated on or is it part of her persona from childhood? It’s really hard to break patterns, really really hard especially if they are part of what formed you. Either way it’s on HER to fix herself. In the real world, the rest of civilized society will not usually accommodate Her. Some people will just shut up and let Her do her thing (out of fear or discomfort) others will make excuses for her (out of love)…. but others will fight back when attacked and perhaps even expose her and shine a blinding light on her. Some people thrive under a spotlight, some don’t.
    My opinion.

                      There are certain personality types that really are drawn to and thrive on camera. I don’t think all of them have a psychiatric disorder — but a high percentage certainly seem to be narcissistic. They seem to be competitive also. In a tough business, those are probably good traits to have – it keeps you trying.

                      But it does make it hard to be around them.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    That’s why I pointed out I am not a mental health professional. hard to believe, right? No, not right. Ha ha. Ya’ll shd read the article if you havent already, it fits Brandi too a t.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I think she’s always played the victim card, maybe that is why her husband as always cheating on her, he just got fed up with it and gave her a real reason to be the victim. He probably has less drama in his life with his crazy new wife than with his nutty old wife. I know a person like Brandi and it gets tiring and they never change so yes I think she has always been like this.

    I was watching Downton again today, the cricket match epi. When Branson asks Lady Grantham if it would be ok for him and the baby to stay with them until the baby is a bit older I just cried. That made Cora’s day. And when Branson caught the ball at the match and won the game that was the best scene of acceptance with Lord Grantham.
    PBS showed a few scenes of S4. OMG it’s going to be the best season yet.

              • chismosa™ says:

                They specifically named their son after their 2 fathers, one of whom passed away. I find it sad they never use the name and only use Duke (wha? Heh? Sounds like a Great Dane’s name). It’s too kitschy and wanting to be “cool”
                Vomit.

                That’s my issue with it.

                Plus I think they should have given the kid an Italian – very Italian – first name since his mother is from Italy and will carry the father’s last name. But, jmho

                We’re very traditional in my family about names – especially boys. Must follow guidelines. 🔞📑

                But hey go by your name that’s great – sorry don’t mean to judge.

                Oh yes one of Kim’s baby daddy’s kids is named Ariana- now I remember because it’s a very popular greek name. I babysat about 5 different Arianna’s growing up.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Thanks, I WILL continue going by my middle name , by golly!

                  Ariana is a pretty name. I didn’t realize it was Greek.

                  OT: So my daughter is dating a Turkish guy and we were talking about meals shes had there…i was asking her, when you are in Turkey and they bring you yogurt with every meal, do they call it Greek yogurt? She exclaimed NOOOOOOO! It’s Turkish yogurt!!! You can’t just say “yogurt” that implies a sweet yogurt, but if you want the sour cream type high protein zero fat yogurt you ask for Turkish yogurt. Interesting.

                  When he lived in the states she took him to a Greek cafe and he said,…this is all Turkish food. Isn’t that interesting,..or not?

                    They occupied us and were horrific so innately I can’t like them.

                    I would love to see Agia Sophia basilica in Istanbul (CONSTANTINOPLE thank you very much) – which they turned into a MOSQUE (heavens).

                    But I don’t want to support their economy so I wouldn’t go.

                    They also have stopped a whole issue of the most famous priest academy from reopening there – 60 minutes did a whole thing.

                    I honestly wish the best for your Lainey girl –

                    But the Persians on shahs have many foods we eat too but I’m not calling it greek, the music is the same, but we can all have that!

                    I was so happy to read Whole Foods stopped carrying chobani yay! – (it has gmos) Turkish owner.
                    Fage forever !

                    My personal conflict comes with friends of my parents who are Cypriot (think Dina Manzoid’s baby daddy). You can be greek Cypriot or Turkish Cypriot.

                    Ok sorry for the big history lesson- but you say Turk to a greek and we GO OFF! 🌋

        I read the link you posted also…I think sadly it doesn’t matter if it’s true false or whatever-the press got their hooks in the story and that’s that. He will be tried in the court of public opinion….something tells me that Bethenny is well aware of the story.

        • BB says:

          I don’t see any “meat” to this story. I don’t think he would have fought his suspension from school so hard if he had been guilty. Also, I don’t see anything serious happening in this relationship. This is just my opinion, but I don’t think Bethenny is hard wired to be in a long term committed relationship where compromise is important and there is an equal amount of give and take. If she had not been pregnant (which I think happened accidentally on purpose), I don’t think she would have ended up being married to Jason. Had they know each other longer, one of them would have realized they were not at all compatible. Not sure if there is a perfect guy out there for Bethenny.

          • Cartwheels says:

            I do think that there is out there a guy who is perfect for her but I just don’t happen to think that if they ever found each other that they will married. Bethenny herself said few days ago that she doesn’t think she will ever marry again. I see Bethenny pulling an Oprah and just leaving with a guy with no marriage in between and just be as happy as a clam.

            Regarding this guy, while I do feel sorry for him because his past will be scrutinized and sensationalized to death , something tells me that this will be his trial by fire, if he can’t take it then he is not the guy for her.

            • BB says:

              He might be the guy for her (if there is one). His aunt said he likes older women so maybe he likes being bossed around. I don’t think Bethenny has a problem with that. lol.

      • Orson says:

        I’m pretty sure she’s in no hurry to get remarried. She’s smart enough to wait at least until she’s not sharing the same apartment as her ex.

      There’s our Sue again. 🙂

      • iceNfire says:

        “Our Sue” … love it!

        • plainviewsue says:

          xxxooo! I was surprised with this one. I cannot wait for NY. After NJ, I was so excited to start BH, but thanks to Brandi, it is disappointing. Carlton’s storyline is ridiculous. I am actually enjoying Kyle and Kim more. And of course as long as Miss Lisa is on my screen, I am happy!!

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

            Damn Sue-you are tweetin’ star!!! I can’t wait for NY to start-I miss Sonja and Ramona…and even the dumb drag Queen!!!

    • chismosa™ says:

      What is “crazy?”
      I’m dying to know !?!?!?!?

      I still think there are some behind the scenes stuff we don’t know about that causes this lateness in production/ post production

      Very verrrrrrry weird

        Me too – thanks TT!

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

          How you holding up Boo? Lots of snow? We have lots but I don’t mind-it’s the freezing cold I could do without!!!

          • Boobah says:

            Jill, it’s sooooo cold! About 10 inches of snow here. I don’t mind the snow either, actually I Iike it. I agree that its the cold that is unreal. How are you doing?

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

              I have been hunkered down on the couch most of the day with a fire going! Trying to stay warm and out of the snack cabinet!!!

              • Boobah says:

                Sounds snuggly. I’ve been on the couch w/an electric blanket and space heater for the room. Lol – my snack cabinet didn’t stand a chance against me today!

        • TexasTart says:

          ::::waves:::: at Boobah! & Jill!

  31. Powell says:

    Lulu I’m watching Couples Therapy now. LOL Farrah said she doesn’t do porn and if anyone believes she does then she feels sorry for them, or something to that effect. She’s delusional. No one cares if she is or isn’t doing porn. It seems to me she’s ashamed of what she did.

    • BB says:

      I don’t think I can bring myself to watch this. It sounds like a bunch of fake storylines to me. Sounds like they made up “problems” for a nice little paycheck at the end of staying in a nice house for a few weeks. Not that I’m jaded about reality tv or anything. lol.

    • lulu says:

      Its going to be a good season!

    • MelTheHound says:

      Maybe she has a different definition of it. The movie I saw that she got paid close to a Million dollars for, sure looked like porn to me. She’s a trash heap, has been at least since 16 and Pregnant, and is on a good track to remaining a trash heap.

  32. AZGirl says:

    Okie dokie everyone!!! One of our locals here in Arizona is in the finals for the Doritos Super Bowl commercial competition. It really is the best one. Go to http://www.doritios.com. and you can vote. It is the commercial with the young boy with a dog and the time machine. Really cute. The family will win $1,000,000.00. Thanks for your help.
    p.s If you like one of the other commercial I am very cool with that…. sort of….ok….

    That Brandi interview is up. Who’s brave enough? Kit?

    Nancy, the niners will be playing in -0 weather Sunday in Green Bay.

    • Nancy says:

      Hi lillybee…I heard it was going to be -30 due to wind.
      Also…the Super Bowl is going to be played out east aka snow! lol
      I think that’s a first.

  40. TexasTart says:

    I guess this is a charity that gives kids the opportunity to go to the prom…

      Greyhounds are bred to enjoy running. I’m glad he’s having a good time.

      • lillybee says:

        My retired greyhound is afraid to run. She will run for a few steps and stops as if she is afraid that she will be in trouble for not running fast enough.

  43. TexasTart says:

    Tabitha Coffey is a guest on Fashion Police tonight. Apparently she has a book, but I didn’t hear that part (flipping channels from football to fashion, lol).

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      I’m watching now too-the book is called something like “It’s more than just hair” -it’s her stories about her life…she is kind of funny!

      • BB says:

        I read that book. It’s a great read. She had a rather unusual childhood. I think I still have the book.

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

          Oh now maybe I will downloaded since you said it was good-I like her. I wish she stuck to helping Salons on her show instead of all the other places but that’s just b/c I used to work in a salon!

    • chismosa™ says:

      I read somewhere about some “real folks” meeting her irl and she was such an utter bit**.

      But bravo seems enamored just like P Stinker. So I’m sure she’ll be on for unending seasons.

  44. ladebra says:

    Oh! Joyce on KTLA5 this morning. Interesting

    • LaineyLainey says:

      That was good.

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

        What did she say? How about a quick recap if you are up for it? I’m on my phone while my iPad charges and the screen is teeny tiny!!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Well, first in my opinion, she comes off as confident, smart, well-spoken and beautiful. The gist of it is that she says something like (don’t quote me) that if Brandi would sincerely apologize she would be willing to forgive. Then they cut to a talking head where she says something, that will sound idiotic when I repeat it, but she says..”IfGod himself can forgive us for what we did to His Son, who am I to not forgive a little bitch like Brandi?” Sorry, but that made LOL. First I think her theology is a tad flawed but that’s up for interpretation. I think it’s great that she’s not perfect and all sugar and spice (I.e. fake) she can be real and gives as good as she gets. You guys know I’m not crazy about name calling, but she’s been called a few names herself and whether I like it or not that’s how some people react to being treated horribly; repeatedly and publicly. (That last run on and badly structured sentence was totally my opinion).

          Someone on twitter said it would be wise of Joyce to be quiet now and just let Brandi implode. Not a bad strategy. Not sure Joyce is one to be quiet now that the floodgates have been opened.

          Then she talks about her pageant and in essence states that people from all walks of life (my words) are allowed to participate e.g. Regardless of gender preference, marital status, parental status..the only requirement is that they have a charitable platform, that’s what I can remember.

          How’d I do, Ladybra, too much Lainey, not enough Joyce? Hahahahaha!

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

            Wow thanks Lainey-that was fab of you!!!

          • ladebra says:

            I think you were spot on! It was interesting to me that she said BH wasn’t “guided reality”. That what we got was raw and real … And a lot was on the cutting room floor. (Also from memory, and we all know my short term memory sucketh!)

          • chismosa™ says:

            Thanks Lainey. Much appreciated.

            I wonder if she had sheer black hose on ? 😜😆

            • LaineyLainey says:

              LOL, no she wasn’t wearing black panny ho. That’s how we said panty hose, back in my more hood days. LOL. She posted a pic before the segment filmed and I think I would have noticed the black panny ho.

  45. plainviewsue says:

    Dina Manzo is gonna be on Bethenny show on Monday. And shockingly enough, Patti Stanker is gonna be on Tuesday. I thought they hated each other. Wonder how Jillzy will feel about that!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yeah! I thought Patti didn’t like Bethenny!!! Interesting.

      • Nancy says:

        Bethenny is getting desperate. I heard her show got picked up for another season.
        Good for her.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Well, Omarosa said to Bethenny, “I’ve stayed in the public eye 10 years from when I first started on reality t.v. I want to see if your show can last a year. “. Looks like it will happen. But I guess, I don’t want to speak too soon.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Reza is on next week too. With the mustache being shaved off. Such a JERK

          well katie got canned after 2 seasons. So it could happen next year as well. :0

  46. Nancy says:

    Brandi just got another dog. Was that her “shocking” news?

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Lucky Brandi!!! I want a dog! No, a cat!

      • Nancy says:

        Her assist’s took it off some homeless man. Personally I like to see the homeless
        with dogs. Brandi isn’t taking care of the two she has so I’m not happy with
        this news. You my dear need to get yourself a little darling this year. They add
        so much joy to ones lives as you know. 🙂

  47. Nancy says:

    Lainey…Show this to your DH. 🙂

  48. Exit4 says:
