Couples Therapy – His and Her Perspective

Couples therapy season 4 ep 1 “I put the real in reality stars” by Mr and Mrs LuLu

Her blog:

Taylor and Jon

First to arrive couple’s therapy. This seems to be a preventative measure for them. She suffers from ptsd from her tragic relationship with Russell. As you may or may not know she wants to marry her lawyer that sorted her legal woes. They (she) feels they can’t move forward unless she’s cured.

Ghostface and Kelsey

Poor ghostface has problems he cries about women throwing themselves at him. He just can’t help himself. But now all of a sudden he’s kind of considering a serious relationship. First priority the woman has to be clean for whatever that means!?!? Kelsey feels spiritually connected to his cleanliness. But this relationship is doomed by incoherent ramblings from ghost. Well at least he lives up to his name.

Whitney and Sada

Bit confused as to why they are there? Their problems are so ordinary in comparison to this “show.” They both have explosive personalities and struggle to define their roles. They compare their relationship to mommy/daughter-ish??

Farrah Abraham

Her boyfriend ditched her so she decides to proceed with couples therapy by herself!?!? For the life of her she can not figure out why her “boyfriend” won’t show up. Neither can we, Dr Jen, other couples…..why is she on this show?? So we are all stupid if we think she is a porn star. She only did “one” porno so therefore she is “not” a pornstar who has a “toy” line……Dr Jen while scratching her head to determine where this lost soul belongs. Has a revelation she is a “product” of the media. So please ignore her past behavior because its not her fault. It the media’s fault for portraying her in the wrong light………

1st session meet and greet

Where is Jon Gosselin????? After the *yawn* therapist introduction. Dr Jen states the obvious she points out the singleton in the room. Farrah on cue cries about her “boyfriend” not being there. The cast see Taylor and Ghost offer their support. Ghost bluntly states that since he is not there then that speaks volumes!! I’m guessing he will be the couple’s therapy laureate.

Awkward and uncomfortable dinner

Whitney and Sada try to engage ghost and Kelsey in small talk. But Ghost is Not interested in the following: crying, hugging, monogamy or therapy?!? Does he know he’s on a show that has the word “therapy” in the title?? Whitney and Sada wonder why he is there and poor Kelsey is simmering. I’m sorry to say that even though I find Ghost interesting I just don’t see them making it. Next week Jon shows up with whatshernamenotkate?

His blog:

Taylor and John,

She has PTSD and other underlying issues, he might as well have ‘co-dependent’ written on him. My guess, they wont make it. He is just the ‘nice guy’ island for her.

Ghostface Killah and Kelsey,

Oh SNAP! I just entered the 36 Chambers for the first time, again… But no, he is trying to sabotage this relationship. Why, cause he has no idea how to have a life long commitment. Not that he is a jerk, he is just broken. She on the other hand is a God send for him, and better than he deserves. So hopefully he gets it together.

Whitney and Sada,

I know all ready, this is my favorite couple this season.

Ha ha ha, my sides! She (Whitney) made an ultimatum to a wife! And expected it to work. Ha, ha, ha! Turns out women make the same damn mistakes a man does with a new husband. Oh God, hope she enjoyed that night’s sleep on the couch. Oh Lord, get over the arguing over nothing?!?! Ha, ha, ha, I got bad news for you on this thing called marriage… No really though, I hope I see these two realize that is just normal. And what makes a marriage happy is having such a love that you don’t even care, cause that love is all you need no matter what.

Farrah,

Well, looks like poor life choices have becomes a life philosophy for this one.

All fairness, she has no sense of true and earned self worth on a lot of levels. I mean, she tried to take a boyfriend of five months… to couples therapy… Sweetheart, most sane people call that an all right time frame to just break up. I mean five months? Five months? And she is that invested in the relationship? This is a real red flag. Side note, what the Hell Doctor Jen? I mean really? You think these people have couple therapy to do? Seriously, I am not letting this five months thing go. If some stuff comes up in the first five months that leads either person to suggest therapy… Break up, please. It ain’t meant to be.

1st Session,

Doctor Jen introduces her fashion and stereotype coordinated staff whom all seem to wear clothes from Express exclusively. Jesus, did she select them out of a catalog?

Session goes about par for CT… Except no one breaks glass or throws a chair. To early yet in the season for that prime A acting out.

Dinner,

I’ve seen people with a gun to their head looking more relaxed as they made a ransom tape than some of these people eating together seemed to be.

    Good morning everyone. It’s 11 degrees out. Aghhhhhhhhh!!!! I’m not going out. 🙂 Stay warm everyone. Have a great Saturday.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Powell it was so cold last night on my weather thing on my phone I took a screenshot of it to save it. Down to 7 degrees it said.

      What a winter

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’m just not gonna add to this convo. Lets just say Texans are happy today.

    • BB says:

      I’m not going out either (unless I get really, really bored).

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I just went out to put air in the tires and get gas. I thought I was going to freeze. It’s 34 with gale force wind. What does that make the chill? And this is the high. Any second, snow is to start and the temps go down, down, down, down till Monday morning when it’s to be below 0. Holy Moley!

  2. Powell says:

    Mr. & Mrs. Lulu!!!!!!! I’m throwing a BIG hug your way. 🙂 This is gonna be fun. 🙂 Lulu I wasn’t trying to get you to blog for us. You are both so busy. I truly thank you both. Tell him thank you from me. 🙂

  3. Powell says:

    Happy Birthday Vegas Chick. I hope you enjoy your special day.

  4. Powell says:

    Doesn’t Taylor’s BF look like he’s aged since they’ve become a couple?

  5. Gigi and her sixteen year old pop star boyfriend – so young – can’t say I’ve heard of him but he is 16.

  6. Apparently Brandi said this on her latest podcast while talking to Kim Richards …

    “I personally feel like one of the new girls makes me miss Adrienne and Taylor A LOT. I feel like bring those girls back. At least they have their own story going on and it’s not just ‘Let’s bring down Brandi,'”

    Pot meet Kettle – NMD

    • Powell says:

      What is she talking about? It’s been all about Brandi taking down a few of her castmates.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Seriously, she is a mental case. She misses Adrienne????? After what she did to her. She’s the reason she’s off the show. And for that I will be grateful to Brandi, cos I never enjoyed Adrienne.

      Brandi’s storyline from day one was to bring down the other girls. I can’t anymore with her.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Is this the same bitch who claimed last year that Adrienne was suing her?

  7. Powell says:

    Lulu so you liked Farrah crying on cue huh? What I LOL at was when she was telling them her “story” she would “cry” practically losing her breath and say crying “I’m sorry I can’t talk about this now” in a breathless voice. I was like WTH? She’s serious isn’t she. And who told her to get lip injections or implants. She’s a mini Taylor w/the plastic surgery. She really is unrecognizable when you 1st look at her. She’s had a chin implant and her nose done. Too much work on a 20 something face.
    Mr. Lulu I’m stuck on the five months too. It just doesn’t make sense that they would be invested in this way in a 5 MTH relationship. Didn’t Farrah watch the season w/Lorenzo Lamas’ daughter and her husband of the famed Dirty website? What they got married over a weekend of knowing each other?
    Ghost, ghost, ghost. IDK what to say about him. He tells Farrah it’s a shame her man isn’t there but then he talks to his GF like he’s not into being there st all.
    Whitney and Sada. What are they there for?
    Wasn’t it funny how Taylor was the 1st to speak when Dr. Jen asked the group how they felt about Farrah staying? I felt like Taylor is making sure the camera is on her.
    This should be interesting. I can’t wait for John Gosselin to get there. He’s going to get into life w/Kate. I liked there show for a few seasons but you could tell Kate treated John like he was just another child telling him when, where and how to do things. But in Kate’s defense she had to be organized to stay on schedule, take care of the kids, house, etc.

    • ladebra says:

      I read, in the last few days, the bf of Farah was fake. He said she asked him to play her bf so she could get on the show. He ultimately couldn’t go through with the deception and just didn’t show up.

      So Farah is a porn star and a big fat pants on fire liar.

    • lulu says:

      Good mornin Powell!! At first I was under the impression that Farrah’s boyfriend was imaginary. I was shicked when they showed some guy and said its her boyfriend. What a strange woman. I get she regrets doing a porno but what’s done is done.

      Ghost killah I know I’m going to enjoy this season for him alone. The crazy things he says!!!! I feel bad for Kelsey she deserves better.

      I used to watch jon+kate plus 8. Loved watching the kids and their shennanigans!! But their j/k relationship was painful to watch. With eight children six of the same age she had no choice but to micromanage. She neglected jon and their marriage but what choice did she have. Raising that many children is her life and a fulltime job. I’m just interested in what Jon has to say. Was it me or does it seem like he’s a broken person?

      Btw both of us are happy to blog couples therapy!! 😉

      • Powell says:

        Farrah doesn’t seem regretful or sorry she did a porn/sex tape, whatever she wants to call it to make herself feel better cuz what she did backfired. She didn’t really get the result she wanted. She got some dough, vivid entertainment wanting her to do more, a sex toy line but it’s not what she wanted. So many of these girls think they can do what Kim K did & become a Star but it doesn’t work. Lots of people don’t like Kim but she did a sex tape w/her BF, wannabe big Star Ray J. All Kim and her mom w/Bob Shapiro did was capitalize on it since it couldn’t be stopped from coming out. I’d do the same thing if it was beyond my control. Laurence Fishburn’s daughter tried the same thing and she ended up in rehab. So I don’t feel sorry for Farrah. I feel sad for her daughter cuz this is her mother.
        John Gosselin I don’t feel sorry for him either. Yes Kate had to do what she did to take care of the family but their relationship was like that before the kids. I don’t believe they were equal in that relationship. I think it was her way and no other way, so that’s his fault. He let her run their relationship. I wanna here what he has to say. How did it all lead to him partying and having relationships w/different women when Kate was out of town?

        • lulu says:

          Farrah should have paid closer attention to Momager Kris. She played up the victim and have good pr. Its hard to cry fowl when money is involved. Farrah wants our pity but sorry won’t work. She needs to go away.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      That ugly face cry she makes has my husband in stitches every time. Anyone else notice besides the obvious lack of tears..that her tissue was completely dry and free of mascara,

      I hate Farrah and think there is something very Casey Anthony-ish about her.

    Thank you for all your well wishes and kind regards. Letting my family and friends know I successfully underwent fibroid surgery as it was reported. Yes, I’m okay. No appetite yet. Excellent female doctors in Atlanta! #proudsisters #closertomydreams #Im not 43 yet!

    • Powell says:

      I didn’t know she had fibroids. I’m glad she’s ok. Wow 3 of the cast had fibroid surgery.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I think it was reported every single cast member on Atlanta has had them, with maybe 1 exception.

        Good for Kenya. She can twerk right out of the recovery room.

    • BB says:

      She’s trying to get preggars. She’d better hurry!

      • HuskerHuny says:

        I had a few small ones that my ob/gyn found during a routine exam. I don’t think it’s all that uncommon.

  9. ladebra says:

    Thank you Mr and Mrs LuLu! I still don’t think Dr. Jenn is a real doctor.

    Hoping everyone is safe and warm. I’m off to the lab, and then I’m eating! I’m not a nice person when I’m hungry.

    • chismosa™ says:

      LOL @ dr Jenn ……hahahahaaaaaaa

      I think she’s a doctor the way dr Phil is a doctor.

      I am not sure but I think dr Drew is an MD. ?
      Maybe she has a doctorate in psychology (at the very least please !?!!?)

    • lulu says:

      Lol!! She’s a sports therapist!?!?!? How did she land this job????

  10. chismosa™ says:

    She has degrees in special ed and what was the other – social work- but doesn’t know what the word chastise means ? Oh boy

    http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2014/01/joyce-giraud-brandi-glanville-make-excuses-bad-behavior-rhobh-video/

    • It’s not her first language. I don’t think people should be chastised or reprimanded for not knowing what the words mean hehe. It’s not like she’s the granddaughter of Hosea Wiliams and thinks there is a train in the Underground Railroad.

      I am actually in awe of the housewives that can move between different languages fluidly (and fluently).

    • chismosa™ says:

      #bobby send a private plane!

      • Kansas Girl says:

        That’s a “PP”!

        Oh, and Jill, if ya run out of unders, check TJ Maxx. They’ve got your brand at discount.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I am sure that @DeltaAssist is being plagued in tweets by her…

          @DeltaAssist What do you mean you are not responsible for the weather? Do you know who my husband is?

          @DeltaAssist You have inconvenienced me terribly , I want to be compensated with unlimited first class tickets for life. Do you know who my husband is?

          @DeltaAssist When you finally do send a plane make sure my IFE system has a faceplate for the monitor. Even if it still functions without it, it’s not aesthetically pleasing …did I tell you who my husband is?

          @DeltaAssist Make sure you have the first class stocked with LOTS of bananas, Last time the lady in front of me took the only one. Did I tell you who my husband is?

  11. #Adventure2014 – May 4th 🙂

    • chismosa™ says:

      It’s beautiful I wish you could all go there. I thought I had died and was in heaven. But I’m a real die hard ocean lover.

      Thanks for these tweets NMD!

      Especially during this weather :/

      • Shiny says:

        I’ve always thought a calendar would be a best seller if it had photos of winter during the summer heat wave months and photos of summer beaches during the winter months. No way I want to look at pictures of snow when it’s out my window already.

    • Powell says:

      Ahhhhhhhh. Beautiful NMD. You lucky lady. 🙂

    • ladebra says:

      What a beautiful place. Lucky lady!!!!

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi NMD – Is this the place where all/most of the houses are blue? Hope you have a wonderful time

      • TexasTart says:

        I thought most were white, but in any event, it’s stunningly bold contrast they use in architecture. You pick fantastic locations, NMD.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Houses are in white not blue.

        I didn’t know NMD was going there !!!
        Wow!

        Not in winter – don’t do it ! ❌❌❌

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      oh wow…you are really going there? NICE!!!

  12. #Adventure2014 – August 🙂

    • Cartwheels says:

      I love, love, love this picture but I could never be the person on that cliff.
      I know the view must be breathtaking but at that point I would be having heart palpitations and probably would be dizzy and ready to get sick. I am deadly afraid of heights.
      Now looking at the view from 100F inland would definitely be absolutely wonderful.

    • Powell says:

      Oooooooohhh. 🙂

    • TexasTart says:

      The breathtaking beauty.of nature! Don’t believe I have seen many photos from this land, glad to hear NMD will see it in person! 🙂

    • Cartwheels says:

      So I guess she was compromising when she was cackling and laughing whole heartedly at Brandi taunting Joyce and acting like a lunatic. I know she was definitely supporting her when she giggled right along with her during the dinner at PS and at the Fosters’ home, Lisa definitely was supporting Brandi there as a sidekick
      As far as defending, in order for you to defend someone there is the inherent part that somebody should be attacking them which is also not the case here as Joyce has never started anything, in all circumstances Brandi has always been in the driver’s seat with Yolanda and Lisa as copilots.
      Now that they have a fall out it is easy for Lisa to distance herself from Brandi but she was with her all along. If I have a very close friend and she is acting a fool, I don’t enable her by acting like she is hilarious, first of all I don’t laugh and second I try to get her out of there to stop her from embarrassing herself even more. Then we she sobers up I let her know that her behavior was not becoming and that she needs to apologize, none of that happened , at least not at this point of filming anyway.
      The funny part is that the dinner at SUR happened in the middle of June and Kyle’s event happened towards the end of June just in the middle of the scandal with the talk host who said Brandi never warned him about her STD, will that be on the show?
      Lisa and Brandi never had a fall out until the trip to Puerto Rico which is at the beginning of August so I am very curious as to what Lisa’s reaction is going to be to the wasted naked drunk incident that happened in July 8th? will Bravo gloss over it or will there be any mention of it?
      Because you know that this will be the elephant in the room and how could they possible not addressed it?

      • Rebecca is sick of the FatKyle victim storyline says:

        She can’t control Brandi. No one can. She can’t calm her down. Brandi would have blown up right in the restaurant. There could have been screaming, throwing objects, etc. there comes a time when you have to the blame squarely on the psycho’s shoulders. This is also I refuse to see anything wrong with Michael Ohoven’s attempt to shut Brandi down. If she would stop going off on his wife, he would never have engaged in any conversation with Brandi.

        We’re judging abnormal reactions here because one trashy individual is making everything about her. It’s turning off viewers. When the advertisers finally start pulling out, Bravo will put an end to this, but unfortunately, not before.

        • Powell says:

          Rebecca that’s true but if Brandi was just a customer how would Lisa have handled that type of outburst? She would have gotten that customer out of her restaurant. The same w/Brandi. No Lisa nor Yo could have calmed Brandi down but Lisa could have told Brandi she’s had enough and has to leave. They have got to stop saying “Im not Brandi’s mother” or “Production told me this or that”. SUR is Lisa, Ken and their partners biz. Brandi, Bravo nor Production can stop them from handling their biz.

          • plainviewsue says:

            Remember Brandi asking Taylor to leave when she was hosting a party at her friend’s Malibu home in season two? Brandi did the right thing. Joyce should of asked Brandi to leave in Palm Desert. And yes, Lisa should of pulled Brandi to the side & told her to leave. In the real world, maybe she would of.

            • iceNfire says:

              I remember Brandi asking Taylor to leave her friends Malibu home and she was right in doing so. Taylor was causing all kinds of trouble but she wasn’t decent enough to leave when asked. iirc she got even worse

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            Briefly, don’t know which clip, I saw Michael telling Lisa and YoMoFo that Brandi was disrespecting their “table”. I agree. They’ve opened their business establishment and home for dinners and Brandi ruins their events by getting drunk and screaming obscenities. They allowed it because she was a member of their ‘team’. Joyce rightfully told YoMoFo she wouldn’t like Brandi if she’d been on the receiving end of the attacks/ jabs/jokes/comments.

        • Cartwheels says:

          Lisa can’t control Brandi, nobody can but Lisa not only did nothing to control her, she giggled all along at her dumb “jokes” , she not only enabled her, she also contributed with her behavior to embolden Brandi and egged her even more.
          If I would have seen Lisa being upset, instead of laughing, even if she didn’t say a word, I could believe that she was uncomfortable but all I see was Lisa completely comfortable, laughing and enjoying the show.
          I am glad that for whatever reason they had a fall out and Lisa came back to her senses but I also have the feeling that if the fall out never happened Lisa would be full of excuses for Brandi’s behavior.

        • plainviewsue says:

          Amen Rebecca!!!!! Lisa was Brandi’s close friend. Just like she sided with Kyle in season two when Kyle gave her rendition of game night. She is going to trust and believe in her friend. It wasn’t until she watched the episode that she saw how Kyle & Kim truly treated Brandi.

          Lisa has said over and over that she has tried to talk to Brandi, but she doesn’t want to come off as her mother.

          Brandi is a very high maintenance friend. We’ve all had one of those. Either you continue to deal with it or you step away.

          • Cartwheels says:

            Lisa was not present during game night so she had no other choice but to take Kyle word for it. BTW Kyle was the first one to apologize for her behavior on that night. Kim was stubborn about it. Lisa didn’t have to arm wrestle Kyle for an apology.
            Lisa has been present in every single on this episodes where Brandi has acted like an a^%hole and not only she has said nothing, she has giggle all along with Brandi, there is a huge difference there.

        • VV™ says:

          True. The difference is we don’t truly know if she was asked to shut it by Lisa because YES editing of footage. I do know however and THIS WAS LIVE when Andy played the footage of drunk Brandi, Kyle was laughing too until she saw her face in the screen and changed her tune. I’m talking about Kyle Richards who knows all the despicable behavior of Brandi and calls Brandi a friend.

          Lisa’s haters will continue to blame her for other peoples behavior much like Teresa Giudice is blame for everything.

          Yes, Lisa cackled SO WHAT? I don’t understand people going off because she was laughing at a drunk person. They only do it because they want to hate on Lisa. ♻️♻️♻️

          • Cartwheels says:

            If Lisa would have asked Brandi to cut if off, to stop taunting Joyce or to watch her filthy mouth we will have known, juts as when Brandi told Kyle that Yolanda and Lisa have asked her to slow down with the drinking. If Lisa would have asked Brandi to stop she would have said so in her blogs and she has not said so.
            I am not blaming Lisa for Brandi’s behavior , I am pointing to her own complicit behavior that now she wants to pretend never happened. At the moment that matter Lisa not only didn’t stop it , she egged it on with her giggles. At the moment that matter Lisa was right along with Yolanda and Brandi making fun of Joyce.
            Lisa is now trying to save her image by saying that Brandi was out of control (which she was) but she is trying to pretend that she saw the light at the trip to Palm Spring when it is obvious by watching the following episodes that this is not true, they were very chummy at the Fosters’ house and Lisa definitely was taking up for Brandi at last dinner in her restaurant, yet Lisa is trying to convince us that she actually was on Joyce’s side.
            IMO that is laughable, the fact that Lisa is smart and is trying to save her image is okay but to insult my intelligence trying to convince me that I didn’t see what I actually saw is a complete different matter.

            • VV™ says:

              Here’s what I saw at that dinner (besides SUR employees appear and disappear from the background)
              Brandi tried to tell Joyce she’s not a racist and Joyce was not having any of it.
              Then the conversation changed when Joyce said B was a bully and Brandi asked her do you know what a bully is. Again, Joyce was not having any of it and not accepting any explanation B was giving her. I think Joyce knows how to push B’s buttons (not hard to do) and then eventually we saw what Bravo wanted u to show.
              In the end, Bravo showed exactly what we wanted to see. If they can dub words and put them in people’s mouth and they can invert and image of footage to match a scene Bravo can do whatever they want and show us what they want.

    • Powell says:

      You support your friends but you damn well call them out on their crap or they’re no longer your friend. When you support stupid and disgraceful behavior people may second guess who you really are.

    • Powell says:

      Did she delete it? I don’t see it. I was gonna respond to the tweet. :/

  13. lulu says:

    Good morning everyone!!! I hope those who are in the northeast are keeping warm. Aside from the bitter cold its not so bad here. I woke up with the “house” cold. The garage door broke yesterday by the time my landlord :-! Called the repairman. The house was freezing despite having the heat on. I can’t wait to leave this state! 😉

  14. California35 says:

    Good morning 🙂
    Happy Birthday Vegas Chick
    Thanks for the tv listing 🙂 so excited about Downton Abbey 🙂 🙂

    Lulu – I dont watch couples therapy, but your blog may get me interest 😛 so you and Mr lulu watch this together? That is cute 🙂 thanks to both of you. So if Alex and Simon were on one season and now Taylor is on this season, i wonder who else from the RHW would join in the future. I am guessing it would be wives no longer a RHW.

    • lulu says:

      Good morning California!!! Send me some sunshine!!! 🙂

      Next HW’s to be on the show will be Ramona and Mario. I think they have some major (non-cheating) issues. For sure puting a hw on it is reeling in a wider audience. I

      Hey Cali. DirecTV keeps showing a little flash of Downton’s season. I was watching HLN yesterday and it was 3 anchors, Mike Galanos was one. He and one if the female anchors have not watched it. The other female anchor does and was telling them how good it is. I think S3 clinched it for PBS. I think they will have more new viewers this season.

    OT – Hello, Right before Christmas I mentioned that LittleKid was getting me
    http://www.sweetroll.com. Well It arrived yesterday and this is my review.

    I started the day with a bad attitude, doorbell rang and I hate it when that
    happens but I found a small box with my name/address handwritten on the label.
    It’s been a long, long time since I received anything with a handwritten label so
    I was sure it had to be crap. Inside the box was two sweetrolls (large size)
    that are about the size of an Italian sausage.

    I knew immediately that I couldn’t roll all my hair with one curler as I saw
    demonstrated on Fox News but being a martyr I followed the insturctions and
    used one curler after heating it in microwave for 30 seconds. I brushed all my hair
    forward and rolled it backwards, twisted the ends of sweetcurl and put the pretty
    bow clip in place …. It looked Nothing like the pretty little bun I saw
    demonstrated! Directions said to leave it in for 30 minutes but I came
    here to catch up and I’m sure I left it in for almost an hour.

    When I removed the sweetroll I was in shock! The ends of my hair that managed
    to find a place on the curler was transformed into smooth, shiny curls. This
    is exactly what I saw on tv and what I wanted to achieve! YaY me!

    This morning I divided my hair into two sections and used two sweetrolls, one for the top and one for the bottom. Result was everything I wanted! Truthfully tho, I have enough hair for
    three people and would be even happier if I had a third sweetroll but I won’t knock
    the produt just b/c I have too much hair.

    I give the seetcurl a 10, 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and a ‘Most Excellent’

    I would be very interested to know if anyone here tries it. My hair is frizzy and
    dry and I’m curious to know how this works on different types of hair.

    color me a happy cookie with shiny smooth curls 🙂

    “Taylor’s” boyfriend has aged 30 years. Plus…I can’t believe that she is saying that
    Russell caused her orbital fracture when everybody knows that picture came from a

    Just want to convey some thoughts on this “reality” crap. Does anyone take this seriously? I remember as a kid coming to my best friend’s house and her mother was in tears cause Phil died. We were like who the hell is Phil? All My Children I think. She was distraught and so invested (yeah a bit nutso). I think that in this day & age, some people really care about these crazies who would be in Pilgrim State way back when, before medication and therapy… Now they have these exploitive shows that gives fast money and “fame” to a bunch of sick people. Come on, Farrah Abraham, Renee from Mob Wives, et al, are mentally ill. It’s one thing to get a kick out of clowns but for some people to make money off them is offending. Mental illness is real, cause you can’t put a cast on their head. Love this site and everyone here are very respectful. Happy New Year!

    • Nancy says:

      A+ putchka.

    • Well Thank God Phil was alive and in a village in being taken care of until he could come back to the United States!!! LOL!! This is about the time I started watching AMC cuz my friend’s mom watched it….
      And to answer your question, I use to care….now I just think they are all so pathetic, looking for fame, it boggles my mind!!!

      • putchka says:

        Ya ha Princess. I got as far as Luke & Laura (I was pregnant) so please don’t blame.

        • Cartwheels says:

          Guilty !!!
          I saw an episode this morning of catfish: Derek and Lauren and I was so happy when the guy turned up to be who he said he was, I was probably loud when I said “he is real, he is real” my husband came to the bedroom to see what the whole ruckus was about and he could have made fun of me and my silliness ( as he sometimes does) but instead he sat there with me and we finish watching the episode together and even the after show 30 minutes episode afterwards. I was so happy for them you could have swore I knew them both.

  20. putchka says:

    Sorry, meant to say unlike a physical disability, you usually can’t see the problem until it’s too late.

  21. BB says:

    It’s one thing to see these unbalanced people on reality tv for the first time. But to see Bravo continue or another network continue to exploit their unbalanced behavior is, I think, a little irresponsible. But hey, it’s easy money for them and the network, so nobody seems to care if these poor fools cause themselves even more damage. It’s their kids who will pay the ultimate price for their screwed up lives. They are the ones who will suffer the most, IMO.

      This was in response to putchka’s post.

      I often wonder if all the drunk, 1/2 nude pictures of Brandi has hit the school yard yet?
      I couldn’t imagine what those 2 boys are going through.

        I always wanted a picture of mom with her tampon string hanging out…

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Haha Putchka…that’s nothing new to them, she talked about one f her little boys asking her about the string hanging out of her. Remember? Then, iirc, Kyle jumped in with her own tampon string story if memory serves. Beverly Hills is like a whole mother world to me.

          Among other things.

      • Cartwheels says:

        They probably haven’t yet but soon will.
        I am most concerned about the older one, kids can be vicious and he is about to enter middle school. The first time he has an altercation with another student , he/she might throw it in his face and it is going to get ugly.
        My DD told me that two kids got suspended from her school before Christmas break because they had an altercation , words were exchanged and one of the boys threw on the other’s face that his mother was a “thief” (the local newspaper had her picture on the police section where she had been caught shoplifting at a convenience store from a while back) so the other charged at him and the fight started.
        One was suspended for fighting and the other for “XXXX” ( antagonizing?) I am not even sure what is the term, but his mother threw a fit in the school because she said her son was only telling the truth and he was physically attacked so he ended up being suspended only for 1 day while the other got five.
        With the Cibriani boys being in a private school in BH it might be different and the kids might be more open minded but it sure is a difficult position for them.

        • California35 says:

          😦 poor kid. Something similar happened tou brother. A fight with a boy over mom 😦 he was suspended and mom didnt know how to punish him since the fight was about defending mom. She was never in the paper lol she didnt shoplifted, but i guess the kid knew something about mom that we didnt. Or he thought it to be true and either way, he used it to proboke my brother.

          • Cartwheels says:

            It is very concerning how insensitive some kids are nowadays. The era of internet and media all out there sure is scary , nothing is a secret and nothing is sacred anymore.
            Brandi acts like a teenager but she forgets that her two kids will eventually find out about some of the things she so proudly now declares, the threesomes, the STD, the tampon pictures, all of it.
            She is delusional if she thinks she will be able to shelter them for much longer.

            • iceNfire says:

              Im sure Brandi’s kids already know everything about what the rag mags offer and I truly believe that Brandi speaks openly with them. I like to think she explains that she is just doing her job. I also like to think that Brandi is a good Mother and has never misbehaved in front of her kids. We wont know the truth of it til the kids are older and maybe choose to speak about it.

    • lulu says:

      That’s true Gia was made fun of in school. I can’t imagine what she is going through now. They don’t care about the impact on their children that’s what makes it sick.

      The irony is I’m always terrified of embarassing my son before he bed’s on the school bus. I always make sure I’m presentable before escorting him to the bus. I kiss and hug him before leaving the house. IMO life is hard enough it would break my heart to see my boys suffer from my action. But that’s just me I look beyond myself.

  22. MelTheHound says:

    LuLu and Mr LuLu, Thank you for your thoughts on Couple’s Therapy… Here are a couple of mine…

    If you took a tandem gravel hauler (some call them gravel trains), Filled it with Manure, you still wouldn’t have as much horse shit as is represented by this show. Every season the show has at least one dead giveaway to the fakery. Either by something one of the couples says or does or by the fact they are there to begin with. We have 2 fine examples this season in the form of Tramp Abraham (not a porn star …………. Aaahhaahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! 😆 ) and Lips McGee.. I’ll watch her just to see if the Ninja Pool Fight makes an appearance. Both are pros at what they do and can drycry right on que.

    I have always looked at these ‘therapy’ shows with a side eye leaning towards the notion they are complete crapola. Starting with, in my recent memory, Dr Drew and his pal No-Sox. TV Shrinks and Dr Jenn is right in there with them. The sad part is some of these people really need help. I won’t blame these TV shrinks for the ultimate outcomes but all I see when I look at them and their ‘shows’, is exploitation.

    • lulu says:

      Agree. I don’t know much about Farrah I never watched teen mom. But first impression of that frozen face walking up the driveway by herself (walk of shame!) This one is starving for attention. So she did a porno but is not a porn star? That’s a lost soul that belongs in a real therapy session.

      I agree some stories are fake but the real ones are sad.

      • MelTheHound says:

        She doesn’t see anything wrong. If she’s a full part of the show, you will see she takes responsibility for NOTHING. If you think She is a piece of work, you should see her mother. Exact same person +about 18 or 19 years.

        • Powell says:

          MTH how’d you like Farrah’s speech when she was in the car I guess on her way to the airport? “I don’t do pornos and I feel sorry for people that think I do” or whatever she said? I just laughed. Who is she trying to convince? Viewers or herself. No one cares if she did or didn’t. And your right she’s her mother’s daughter./ Although their actions may be different neither takes responsibility for what they do. Farrah is the way she is because of her parents. She treats them like they are her servants and she speaks to them any way she wants.

          • MelTheHound says:

            I thought the same thing any other porn watcher was thinking. It had all the elements of a porn, including the ‘money shot’, it’s a porn… AND she got paid for it. The story is, after it was ‘leaked’ but I don’t believe anything she says.

    • putchka says:

      Hey Jeff, always a favorite. Did you ever see “Freaks”? Great movie. They treated the physically/mentally incapacitated people with great respect. Don’t see this much nowadays.

  25. TexasTart says:

    Lulu and Mr. Lulu, good job blogging the show, thank you! I didn’t watch, but I read Whitney and Sada and that just has to be the couple who was married on The Real L Word, right?! Those two women really did make good reality TV before, and they do often think and act like men, although, of course Sada is more feminine. I was most amused at Mr. Lulu’s response. And both of you noting they may not need to be there. Probably true (I think their Showtime show was cancelled) and they just needed work, lol.

    By the way, I saw the both of them as being more like sexual predators when single and really was amazed the two of them settled down together.

    Sada is actually spelled Sara, but pronounced exactly as your spelling. She says it is Portuguese. Just FYI, no need to change it! I always thought that was goofy to see Sara spelled on screen but everyone saying Sada was confusing.

    • lulu says:

      Awww thank you TT!!!! I never watched the Real L world. I don’t know their background. Their at each other whether its bickering, or down each others throats literally. I wonder if they are their just to promote gay marriage. I don’t see a problem.

      Sada Sara Sada just a “hipster” thing to make her sound “worldly.” To each their own!

      • TexasTart says:

        LOL and I actually bought into the Portuguese explanation, hehe. They should be fun to watch and you give a description that was true to their appearance on the other show. Whitney was the overwhelmingly favorite cast member for three seasons…I guess due to her charisma and ….swagger?! lol IDK why this is so funny to me that they are on Couples Therapy!

    • Orson says:

      I finally got curious enough to google for the photo. That was a classic night out for our Brandi. She “topped off” the tampon string, so to speak, with a nip slip.

      So, what I’m wondering is after that, what do you do if you want to go for a Hat Trick? How do you top something like that?

  40. Exit4 says:

    Thank you for your virtual hugs! I know the Lynn fam loves their animal babies. It turned out better then she expected somewhat. Blood work was normal but her BP was very, very high. So, she gave me BP meds to see if it’s vertigo from the BP. Which I can relate to since I had a BP episode after the baby was born and ended up back in the hospital and on meds. It’s resolved for me-so maybe it will resolve for her. If it does resolve-she stays on the meds.

    If that doesn’t resolve it-then it’s either thyroid (which involves more tests and meds if it’s that) or she had a neurological episode (stroke) in which case-she’ll have to be put down. 😦 I’m hoping the BP meds work. It’s soooo sad watching Sabrina walk into walls and stumble and just be unable to move properly.

    Her box and food has been moved upstairs to my bathroom and I have to confine her when we are sleeping. We let her upstairs with the bedroom door open and she got through the baby gate (hubby forgot to close it) and fell down the steps. So sad. We’ll see how this goes…..

    • California35 says:

      I am glad it turned out better than expected. What is a BP?

      Oh i hope she will be okay and no more issues or falling down. It sounds like you are taking care of her, and she will Be safe.

I’ve driven in worse but still this momma will be happy when they are at home and safe.

    I watched RHOA first look. Poor Mal!! 2-3 times a day!?!? Ouch! So far I am enjoying this season. Wonder if Bravo listened to us and is stopping this fighting nonsense at least with this brand.
