Brandi Glanville

Brandi starts her blog by telling us she hopes we had a wonderful Christmas… and that many of us are probably eager to start off 2014 “fresh and with a clean slate.”  Brandi, I’m sure you are since you ended 2013 with such a bang… and no, I don’t mean the fun kind of fireworks.  But to be fair, I, too, am eager to put 2013 way far behind me!

 Brandi blogs, “This episode brought many smiles to my face. I thought it was so cute to see Carlton and her mother-in-law interact the way they did. I also applaud Carlton for keeping the romance and sexiness alive in her marriage. As someone who was in a 13-year relationship, I know how important it is to keep things fresh and sexy. To her, I say Bravo.”

If I didn’t know so much about her personality, I would consider Brandi to be really beautiful.  It must be really tough on her to realize that her looks and her willingness to participate in various sexual antics were just not enough to keep her philandering ex-husband at home… In my opinion, if someone wants to cheat… they probably will – No matter how hard their partner tries to make their relationship great.  I heard Danny Bonaduce say once on the radio, “You show me the most beautiful woman in the world – and I’ll show you the guy who’s tired of f***ing her.”  That really shocked me when I originally heard it… but as I thought it through it made more sense if you only have a very superficial relationship. But I digress… lol

Brandi blogs, “It was so cute when Yolanda called me for advice about covering a zit, because out of all the girls I seem to be the only one that still gets them and have become an expert at covering them up. Backstage at a fashion show long ago, a makeup artist taught me that a drop of Visine temporarily takes the red out of a pimple. That way you can get through your date night or even a fashion show. Yolanda and David are so cute and sweet together, and that book she gave David was super sexy. Her body is just insane.”

See, now this is good to know.  I had never heard about the Visine thing – Wow, has anyone tried it?.  I, too, sometimes still get pimples – not fun.  I was pretty fortunate acne-wise during adolescence… So I look at these minor inconveniences now as just a great equalizer… lol.

Brandi writes, “Kyle asked me if I would model in her charity fashion show and if I could ask some of my model friends to donate their time also. When it comes to kids or animals, I will do just about anything to help. I asked a few of my best friends that were former runway models if they would be willing to help. And, of course, they obliged. When we arrived to the fitting, Joyce and a friend were already there. I decide to be the bigger person and say hello and introduce her to my friends Jennifer and Etirsa. Kyle has known both Jennifer and Etirsa through me because I have brought them as dates to many of these ladies’ events over the years.”

I’ve got to hand it to Brandi for being willing to volunteer for this event – and even more that she brought her friends.  Sure, they may have volunteered so they would get camera time – but really, they probably filmed for hours and hours and we only saw them very briefly thus far.  Anyone who bothers to show up to participate in a charity event or to be there for a friend gets points in my book.

Brandi continues, “Jennifer and Joyce start immediately speaking Spanish, and, while I know it’s not an actual secret language, I’m annoyed and almost feel like I want to pee on Jenny to mark my territory. I have no problem being cordial to someone I am not fond of for the sake of the situation.”

Well, Jennifer started their whole conversation in Spanish – So you need to back down from making this particular situation about Joyce.  But Brandi, I’m sure they were talking negatively about you behind your back because that’s what your best friend would do – on camera, in Spanish, with your arch rival.  So keep on running with that particular paranoia. By the way, this type of greeting happens all the freaking time in this area… just pick a language.  Brandi goes on to talk about the clothes and that in no way is she a size 0.  But she does say that because she has a long torso and because of that clothes can sometimes fit her kind of weird – but that she’s a “healthy” size 4.  Cough.

And because Brandi just can’t help herself, she continues, “It was interesting to me when Joyce said you can never be too thin too rich or too sexy… It seems to roll off of her tongue very easily without any prompting. This is almost the same saying as Joyce’s opening tagline, which she’s complained about. Hmm. Interesting. That’s just like how adamant she was about not being able to swim — but now she says she actually can swim just not that well. Lie much?”

Yeah, it was interesting to hear Joyce actually say her tagline almost verbatim on-camera – Her actual tagline is, “You can never be too thin, too rich, or too honest.”  I honestly can’t even tell you the others’ taglines right now without overtaxing my brain.  However, I don’t get the correlation between that and when Joyce said that she couldn’t swim well.  Neither come across to me as a lie… I do think that after Joyce recorded her tagline that she regretted using it – knowing how people might interpret it.  In fact, I’ve always kind of wondered if she substituted the word “honest” in for a different word that was originally recorded, because you can hardly hear the word “honest” in the recording – but maybe that was just the way she was talking.  Who knows?  Nothing surprises me anymore… Well, almost nothing.  I think it’s interesting that Brandi is trying to label Joyce as a liar.

Brandi then reveals that will soon see more of the “former Miss Puerto Rico’s true colors coming out.” Who else talks about a castmate like this?  It’s just plain wonky to me.  Brandi says that when Joyce said, “You can never be too thin,” it really bothered her and then she launched into a tirade about eating disorders.  Again, Brandi is right, in my opinion on this particular issue – and it really pisses me off.  That’s twice so far in this blog that I’ve stuck up for Brandi. To quote our little Milania, “This is kinda irritating me.”  I must have a fever.  Obviously, I need more cow bell.  (Sorry, obscure Saturday Night Live reference…


(Preview) For the record, I couldn’t find the skit in its entirety either on YouTube or on NBC’s site – What’s up with that?… Gooberheads… that’s what they are… lol)… But again, I digress… lol…

Brandi blogs of Joyce implying she might have an eating disorder, “I think that Joyce may have a problem. Maybe instead of focusing on what she thinks my issues are, she should take a closer look at herself and her own issues.”

I don’t know if Joyce has an eating disorder or not.  However, I do know that the issues that I’ve seen have thus far on camera is that a raving lunatic insists on:  1) Purposefully calling her “Jacqueline” even though she knows it’s not her name and using the rationale that it’s more Latin than the name, “Joyce”… really?  Cuz the name, “Jacqueline” doesn’t sound especially Latin to me; 2) Calling Joyce “stupid” because Brandi can’t come up with a better adjective and she knows that if she merely called Joyce a “Poopyhead” it would just make Brandi look silly; 3) being called a “liar” by the “truth canon” who habitually gets so drunk she probably can’t remember half of what she says anyway; and 4) flipping her hair all the time.  There are a whole lot of other things I could have said, but I’m tired… these women just exhaust me.

Brandi writes, “Joyce comes to dinner late and kisses everyone hello — completely snubbing me. Then she also tells Mohammed he is the only reason she came. I can already tell this isn’t going to be a fun dinner and really wished I had stayed home with my kids.”

So why do you care about Joyce’s reasoning to go this event?  You already said you didn’t know she was even going to be there – although, Ms. Truth Canon, how could that possibly be?  This was a Bravo sponsored and filmed event… Wouldn’t the assumption be that everyone would be there unless they had an excuse not to be?  And she didn’t snub you, she said, “hello” to you – she just didn’t do the gratuitous double kiss kiss on the cheek.  You treat her like crap – you’re lucky you got anything.

Brandi writes, “After Mohammed told Joyce that Lisa is the the most wonderful woman he’s ever met in Beverly Hills (something I found odd, considering his fiancée was sitting next to him and the mother of his children across from him), we get into a fight. Joyce once again calls me a racist, bully, etc. etc. Even her husband joins in to gang up on me.”

Whoa, are you REALLY going to come down on Mohammad for being gracious about Lisa?  He said, “Lisa, the most amazing lady in Los Angeles” – and then called everyone “gorgeous” and specifically turned to his fiancé… I just think he was being nice – about everyone.  I don’t think you should pick a fight with Mohammad, Brandi – just my opinion.  On a side note, it still astonishes me that Yo can sit across the table from her ex-husband time after time and seemingly be okay.  I know they have a good relationship and all… and I understand being cordial to your ex… but come the heck on…  Isn’t this cruel and unusual punishment?  Their kids weren’t even there…

Brandi blogs, “Joyce’s husband should not have involved himself in that way. He wasn’t around for any of the issues. While a man should stick up for his wife — that should never involve yelling at another woman. Did I really want to murder the ex-Miss Pureto Rico? No, but in my head, I was imagining knocking one of her fake teeth out in my head.”

How could he NOT get involved? He knew of how you treated his wife in Palm Springs… And now, you were sitting right in front of him assassinating his wife’s character… He had no recourse but to defend her. You started the whole argument by saying that you and Joyce had a couple of mutual friends – You specifically named them on-camera and the proceeded to tell her that they didn’t speak highly of her.  That is really low!  Not only are you bringing in people into your fight who aren’t even there to defend themselves or verify what they actually said or their intentions, but you’re also using them as a nuclear weapon to cut Joyce down to the very center of her core.  No one ever wants to hear that a good friend of theirs said anything disparaging about them.  It was sneaky, ugly and gross of you, Brandi.  You fight dirty.  You were the one yelling loudest, Brandi… I’m tired of the, “It’s okay for me to say anything I want – as loud as I want and as dirty and vulgar as I want to say it – but no one had better respond to me” attitude you have.  If you dish it out, take it.  You even told him to, “Bring it, b***.”

Brandi writes, “As Joyce was going on and on, she said something to me that really stands out. She said she knew why I brought one of my best friends (Etirsa) to Kyle’s fitting. I honestly think that remark was the most racist remark ever. I have friends, ex-boyfriends, an ex-husband, and even children from all different ethnic backgrounds. Although I made an insensitive, stereotypical joke, there is nothing racist about me. I also want to add for my entire life I was teased about my name. I was called “vodka” or “gin,” asked if my mom was drunk when she named me, and even asked if I was a stripper and that was my stage name. Teased!!! Not bullied — and you know what I’m a stronger person for it.”

It’s not clear to me whether you chose to bring those particular friends because they’re the ones who were available and agreed to it or if you brought them to prove a point because you know what you had said in Palm Springs and you were aware there were going to be repercussions.  I don’t know if you’re racist or not – but I do know you keep making wonky comments and you use “Puerto Rico” in a negative way when it comes to Joyce.  Just stop it – Stop this madness!  Since you decided you had to tell us about how your whole life people teased you about your name – shouldn’t that mean you are especially understanding at how hurtful name calling can be to someone? Isn’t this just another example of you turning a situation around and making it all about you… Which is exactly what you accuse Joyce of doing all the time?

Brandi writes, “As Joyce and her husband continue to gang up on me, the f bomb starts flying out of my mouth, per usual when I lose my temper and am arguing with two people at once. These people are exhausting and why is this grown ass man screaming at me? I’m frustrated and I start to get emotional. It’s about time to go. All Joyce does is exaggerate EVERYTHING — just as you saw when she mimicked Lisa’s hair flip. So lame!”

Poor, poor Brandi. Such an emotional victim. You cannot expect to bring fuel to a discussion, be the one who lights a match to it, fans the flames, and then be surprised that a fire was started.  It would be like, oh, I don’t know – it would be like if you told a guy to, “Bring it, b***” and then was surprised when he did.

Carlton Gebbia

Carlton starts, “F— perfection! I am perfectly flawed.”  On one hand I like that Carlton views herself as, “perfectly flawed” because I often refer to all of us as being “dust”… but on the other hand it feels like she’s once again trying too hard.  Carlton talks about having an amazing relationship with her mother-in-law.

She writes of her mother-in-law, “And most importantly she knows in the deepest of my soul I have a husband who is honestly the best thing that has ever happened to me. He’s my destiny. I drive him f**ing crazy but in the end he knows I would die for him. Seriously I would lie myself down for this man!”

I’m sure you would be willing to die for your husband – that is if the Grammar Police don’t kill you first.  Carlton tells us that since they have such a close relationship, and since her mother-in-law (she likes to call her “mum”) was present for all three births of her children that it is perfectly normal for them to go together into a place called, “Hustler.” It just seems a little weird to me – but it’s obvious they have a very open relationship. Her “mum” is an adult – if she didn’t want to go – she could have said, “no.” It’s a little creepy that her “mum” gave input on the things that Carlton was going to use to seduce her son.  But hey, maybe she’s an experienced woman and can teach us all a few things?  Carlton invited anyone who had a problem with her lap dancing on her “mum” to “bite me.”  I mean, bite Carlton, not Stars.  After shamelessly plugging “Hustler” for the 4,372nd time, Carlton finally moves on to the rest of the show.

Let’s see, Carlton thought it was romantic of Yolanda to put together that book for David, tells us that she’s half-way done with her Burlesque Room, and then proceeds to target Joyce as she blogs, “Joyce didn’t you just blame others for your tag line? Me thinks you protest too much! Girls out there are dangerously anorexic. So yes Joyce you can be too thin, if you’re promoting anorexia. Be responsible. Wrong message. Oh and did I remind you that you lied. Now who’s the fake?”

Oh, look – Isn’t that just the cutest little thing?  Brandi and Carlton copied off of each other’s paper just like they were taking a 7th grade math test?  How bloody adorable. (Didja see how I tried to sound just like Carlton right there? Lol… I even write it with an English accent!)

Carlton blogs, “So Joyce, how are you OK with your husband getting right in the middle of an argument with you and another woman? It’s been years since I have watched a grown man get involved in an argument with another women. The word “tool” comes to mind. Threatening to take a women down is just a spineless excuse of a man. Stop threatening women and take on a man. God knows your woman has a mouth!”

Oh Carlton, I’m sure the word “tool” comes to your mind whenever you think of a man.  (Quickly stops myself before I get into more trouble…lol)… So like… Why was Carlton not at this dinner?  Or Kyle?  Or Kim?  If it was intended to be a friendship summit between Joyce and Brandi, then why was Yo there and not the others? Hmmm… Did I miss something?

Joyce Giraud de Ohoven

Joyce starts her blog with pleasantries and encouraging us to pray for the troops who weren’t able to be with their families over the holidays.  She then blogs, “This week was certainly interesting. . .As you saw, I finally had enough and I am not allowing Brandi to step all over me. Being classy doesn’t mean taking someone’s abuse over and over. I did give her the benefit of the doubt (too many times), but there came a moment when enough was enough.”

It’s on… It’s on like Donkey Kong… lol.

Joyce blogs, “At the beginning of the episode I still can’t stop laughing about Carlton’s magical double standards. She made it very public that she thinks it’s creepy that I call my husband “baby” (all the while when she calls Yolanda “baby” and Yolanda calls David “Babydoll”).”

Didja see what Joyce did right there?  She used Carlton’s own “magical” word, “magical” against her… lol.  That’s hysterical.  And what she’s saying is kinda right, no?

Joyce writes, “How do you really get so worked up about my silly nickname for my husband, while I now have to watch you week after week with your sex toys, explaining how you ball gag your husband, and talking about your playroom and your nanny-threesome innuendos? Do whatever you please behind the privacy of your walls, but get your creepmeter in check before you attack me for a nickname.”

Oh, snap!

Carlton blogs, “When we arrived at Kyle’s store, Brandi never said hello until other people arrived. Her friend Jennifer was very sweet and started speaking Spanish to me and I responded in Spanish back to her. I don’t understand why Brandi literally nitpicks every single thing I do or say. As I said in the episode: She should learn a bit from her beautiful friends.”

It’s because she hates you, duh!

And about Tagline-Gate 2013-14©®™, Joyce writes, “Finally you can see where my “tagline” came from: “In Beverly Hills, they say you can never be too young, too thin, or too rich.” Trust me if I could, I would love to take that line back! I am more than aware how superficial this quote is, but it is used more as a running gag in Beverly Hills than taken seriously. At a famous Beverly Hills department store you can actually buy the pillow with that silly slogan. And for the record, I DO believe you can be too young as I am a mother and have two babies. I do believe you can be too thin, as I am the living example of someone who was bullied for being too thin. I added the “too honest” bit because what I DO believe is you can NEVER be too HONEST.”

Opens my mouth to speak… then just shuts up.

Joyce writes, “I was hesitant to go to dinner with “the dream team” but Lisa texted me to tell me she had invited some acquaintances and friends in common (Martin and Mohamed) and she wanted to try to start with a clean slate and for everybody to get along. I agreed, as I thought it was a great idea, and I wanted to leave behind all the negativity that had been thrown my way by them. I was told that Brandi was informed that this dinner was for her to make amends.”

Brandi didn’t get the memo and you, my friend – Were set up.  Welcome to Bravo!

Joyce continues, “I wasn’t late…I arrived exactly at the time I was told. So please Yolanda, save any etiquette lessons (especially after your last dinner).”

Yeah, I suspected that the producers had some shenanigans going on… We have seen over and over again how they purposefully create drama by arranging the transportation to be late to these types of events.

Joyce writes, “As for Brandi saying I ignored her when I arrived: I am not exactly sure how she could even expect any more than my polite “Hello, how are you?” I didn’t kiss her, because I was not going to give her a hypocritical kiss. I can be polite, but I will not be a fake — like she’s proven to be. She might be used to that, but if someone is rude and evil to me I will not kiss them.”

Poor, poor snubbed little Brandi.  Lolol… Yeah, Joyce did greet her – Just didn’t kiss her.  I didn’t find anything wrong with that.

Joyce continues, “Watching Brandi say yet again that Joyce is an “older person” and that’s why I should be Jaqueline proves this girl isn’t sorry about anything.  So before we even get to the table to bring us together, Brandi throws out to the bartender “Fill this up before I kill a Puerto Rican.” Luckily for her, she made sure I couldn’t hear this at the time, but it pretty much sums up her character. This is two for two for her, and yet another remark I cannot accept.”

Brandi bends over backwards to try to convince all of us that she’s not a racist but yet continues to throw out Joyce’s country of origin in derogatory ways.  Perhaps Brandi isn’t a racist in the strict sense of the word – but she says pretty crappy things.  Joyce then uses her blog like it’s a letter to Brandi and takes the opportunity to encourage Brandi to do some charity work during the holidays.  Lol.

Directed at Brandi, Joyce writes, “The Spanish bothers you, my name bothers you, my love and affection for my husband bothers you. . .If there is anyone in a “competition” it is definitely you! Brandi saying I have to “one up everyone” is ridiculous! She’s the one that has constantly attacked me for no reason. Her only reason is that I didn’t let her talk crap about her “BFF” Lisa and called her out on it.”

I suspect Brandi may be right in that Joyce may be a “one-up” kind of a person.  However, in the specific situation when Brandi’s dog was missing, I honestly just think Joyce was trying to empathize with Brandi.  She was just trying to say she understood how devastating it is to lose a dog because she had lost one, too.

Joyce writes, “When we sat at the dinner table, Lisa and I were having a great conversation about her book. I told her I bought it, and I bought all the girls’ (Brandi and Kyle) just to be supportive, but that I didn’t have the time to read them all yet. Brandi said that it was very sweet of me to do that. She told us about her friend’s movie she bought to support but hadn’t watched, so she sympathized with what I was saying. Finally, this was going in the right direction and I thought perhaps we could have a fresh start and a clean slate. Everyone was having a good time and nice conversation when out of the blue she interrupts and says: “Joyce, you and I have lots of friends in common.” I responded nicely that we had one friend in common. Then she mentioned her friend Janelle (an acquaintance I like a lot and had good times with the few times I’ve seen her). At first, Brandi couldn’t remember the other friend we have in common’s name, but finally recalled Chrystelle. Yes, Chrystelle is a friend and I love her. So I agreed we have two friends in common. I still thought this would go in a positive direction, and perhaps we found a common denominator. Then Brandi proceeds to say ‘They don’t speak well of you.’”

Dear Bravo, please include some of the obviously edited out nice conversation into the show.  We’re drowning in the Crapfests.  Sincerely, The Viewers.

Joyce writes, “I am not a $100 bill for everyone to like. I hope Janelle and Chrystelle are not hypocrites like Brandi. I have since then spoken to Chrystelle and she told me she has seen Brandi only twice in her life and has never spoken to her about me. I believe it’s just another thing Brandi has created to yet again attack me.”

Did “The Truth Canon” tell a lie?  Say it ain’t so!

Joyce writes, “But let’s assume that even if her friend Janelle (or whomever else Brandi has met) had spoken bad about me, this was meant to be a dinner to have a fresh start. Why would Brandi be on the attack yet again and bring this up? Then she calls me stupid! Thats the moment where I FINALLY HAD IT WITH BRANDI! I’ve taken her abuse, her insults, her ignorance, her racial remarks, her bullying, her dismissive behavior towards my language and my culture, her insensitivity, her changing my name… ENOUGH!”

Umm… yeah, I think Joyce has had “enough!”  Joyce then talks about her husband and that he has her back 100% of the time.  She says that Yo had tried to tell her husband to stay out of this whole thing… but really, how could he?  Joyce agrees with Yo that friendships are earned but that respect can’t be expected if it’s not given.  Joyce also thought it was crazy that everyone was excusing Brandi’s behavior and wanted Joyce to “simply shut up.”

Joyce concludes, “I think this “dream team” thinks they can say as they please and everyone will be scared — but they messed with the wrong person. I am sweet and loving. I love people and will always seek the positive in people first. I know how to forgive and move on. But I won’t be pushed around and I proved all my life that I AM NOT AFRAID and I can fight when necessary. So “dream team,” dream on, but enough is enough and unfortunately for you all, I am NOT afraid of you.”

Yeah, Joyce is obviously not afraid of Brandi.  I think Brandi should run away while she still can…lol!

Kim Richards

Clear the roads everyone, because Kim is just too busy pretending to be the next Danica Patrick (race car driver) to bother to write a blog for us again this week.

Kyle Richards

Kyle writes, “My apologies for not writing my blog last week. On top of holiday craziness, our beloved dog Roxy passed away. Thank you for all of your kind and supportive words. They were very appreciated. This is going to be a short blog as the episode already passed and we are on to the next.”

Awww… the loss of our furry family or of anyone is always hard – especially around the holidays.  Kyle writes that she had hoped everyone had “turned a corner” after their experience in Palm Springs.  As she watched how she and Lisa joked back and forth when they first arrived at Yo’s house (last episode) it made her sad about what has happened between the two of them.  She also thought it was “ironic and amusing” that she was criticized in Palm Springs about referring to various “teams” when during the very next episode Yo refers to her hearted ones as, “The Dream Team.”  Oh Kyle, it’s not okay for you to do it – but it’s perfectly acceptable for the other team to do it.  Don’t you know that by now?

Kyle blogs, “Brandi clearly still has issues with Joyce and it was uncomfortable to watch. The group feels very divided and this dinner was making me feel less hopeful that peace was on the horizon.”

Yeah, I don’t see peace coming any time soon…

Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa writes, “This week, when I was talking to Ken in the rose garden (I have to say one of my favorite tasks), I explained to him that I was coming to the slow realization that my chastising Brandi was of no use. It was pretty redundant in its outcome. It was also having ramifications on our relationship. The playful banter had taken a different direction. My life was still juggling many things, running between SUR, Villa Blanca, and all my other demands, especially with the new venue. My time was precious and I didn’t want any conflict with my friends in our downtime.”

Ain’t nobody got time for that… lol

In talking about how to mend fences with Joyce, Lisa writes, “Inviting my very good friends Martin, Mohammed, and Shiva, was a positive place to start. They had a history with Joyce and spoken well of her and Michael. They weren’t particularly close, but I felt it would be cohesive. They could diffuse any tension that had ensued in the past. I also knew that Joyce would feel more comfortable in the company of such close mutual friends.”

Yeah, I didn’t understand why Martin and Mohammed were invited… but okay… lol.

Lisa blogs, “I endeavored to gently remind Brandi not to provoke Joyce, and, most importantly, if that she couldn’t call her “Joyce” it was better to call her nothing at all.”

Lisa, have you even MET Brandi?

Lisa blogs, “I have defended Brandi’s actions when sometimes they have been indefensible. I have no earthly idea why she felt it necessary to throw the first punch. My reaction showed that clearly. Remarking that their mutual friends didn’t speak well of Joyce was an instigative, inflammatory remark that I knew would create further turmoil in these already convoluted relationships.”

Ya think? lol

Lisa continues, “Joyce reacted vehemently, and, although I understood her reaction, I still hoped that she would take the high road. Not so. It was as if she had reached her limit, so she retaliated. I understood her position, but when nametags like “racist” start being bandied around there will be no easy resolution.”

I don’t blame Joyce – I’ve had enough, too.  I do have to say, that when I first read this section, I read it, “when nametags like “racist” start being brandied around…”  Made me laugh… I may start having to say things are being “brandied” around instead of “bandied” around… lol.

Lisa writes, “I don’t have delicate ears, however with some of the language that spewed from Brandi’s mouth… Well, there has to be a line somewhere, some boundaries of respect between us, otherwise it becomes intolerable to be around. Just an endless litany of expletives!”

If that’s what you thought, you should have insisted that Brandi be quiet rather than Joyce, no?  It was just so wrong that you all were telling Joyce and Michael to not say anything while we didn’t see much of that attitude towards Brandi, the instigator.  Lisa then signs off by saying that love and laughter supersedes all.”

Yolanda H. Foster

Yo starts her blog by calling us “Bravo Lovers.”  Who is she talking to?  It’s not me…

After saying Carlton’s trip to the “Hustler” store was adorable, briefly talking about acne, the book she gave to David, shameless anniversary restaurant plug, etc., Yo writes, “I have been driven by romance my whole life because I crave the intimacy that comes with that. Some might pretend it’s a natural endless emotion, but I have learned that after a couple of years in a relationship with the same partner, it takes a conscious effort to keep the romance alive. I have tried the fancy, superficial life in my past, but I quickly learned that diamonds are not my best friend. Getting that love letter from my husband means the world to me — and no gift bought on Rodeo Drive could ever supersede that satisfaction. I have a special box where I save every single one he has ever written to me.”

While I’m not sure how I feel about insisting that love letters be written, I really agree with the concept that mentascental gestures are much more worthwhile than anything money can buy.

Yo writes, “Lisa created a beautiful night at SUR and we all came to the dinner with the intent to reach out to Joyce and to spend time to get to know her better. But it ended up being exactly the opposite of what I had hoped to see happen.”

Wait, so you also knew that the intent of the dinner was to reach out to Joyce?  Wow… Brandi seems to be the only one who didn’t get that memo. Lol.

Yo blogs, “Brandi and Joyce are like oil and water. Somehow in the five times they have met, they have brought out the worst in each other. What comes out of Brandi’s mouth is absolutely rude and inappropriate. Joyce on the other hand puts labels on Brandi that are extreme and might reflect her actions, but are not the person I believe she is.”

Wait… Aren’t we taught that our actions speak louder than our words?  I do love Yo sees potentially good inside of Brandi… but what else do the viewers have to base our perceptions on but Brandi’s words and actions?

Yo writes, “Michael seems like a really nice man and under normal circumstances it’s only natural for him to defend his wife, but unfortunately the concept here is called “Housewives” not ’Househusbands.’”

Oh Yo, given the same situation, I’m guessing your husband would stick up for you, too.  That is if he ever bothered to show up to any of these events.

Yo blogs, “I am part of this group and I don’t even understand half of what they are truly fighting about because I was not a part of every conversation between Brandi and Joyce. But I can imagine that as a man it must be difficult to be on the sidelines of all this craziness. There are many sides to this story so please keeping tuning in to see it all unfold.”

The thing is, Yo, we are tired of all of this.  People are NOT tuning in – they’re tuning out.  You guys need to catch a clue.  At least with “Real Housewives of New Jersey” all season long we were promised to stick with them through their Crapfest 2013™® © because things would eventually get better.  That is not something we have seen at all with this franchise – In fact, the opposite is true.  We know things get worse.  Relationships are still fractured.

I will be watching the next episode.  I hope you will too, so I’m not alone in this… lol.  I know that’s very selfish of me… and I shouldn’t wish this on my friends, but… Come on – At least this way we can all point and laugh at them, no?  Happy trails!

      Good morning and thanks to MTH and Stars for bringing us the blog today. The holidays have messed up my internal calendar and I wake up not knowing the day, so I think. “….Monday? uh no, I haven’t watched RHOA yet, it must be Sunday!”

      • Powell says:

        TexasTart did you see what I said on yesterday’s blog this morning? I woke up confused also thinking it was Monday. 🙂

        • TexasTart says:

          Hahaha. I went back. Boy are we on the same page…when I go back to work for a full week on Monday, I won’t be confused. But you still have a week to be off wondering what day it is!

          Good thing you will be off while so dangerously cold. I know you don’t like cold, so this must be 10x worse!

      • Stars99 says:

        You’re welcome, Tartsy… I find myself in a continual state of, “What day is it?” Perhaps every day should be Saturday? I hate it when I abruptly wake up and panic thinking…”Wait… am I late for something?”…lol

  2. TexasTart says:

    Cody Simpson, as mentioned yesterday, is Gigi’s BF on the left. Anwar is looking more like Yolanda as he grows up. I think they are on a cruise….

  3. Sus says:

    I’m pretty sure that I have defended Brandi in the past because of the Vyle Sisters being so awful to her when she joined the group. I also felt badly about her situation with that thing she has to share her kids with. I’d hate that.

    The pass I gave her has been revoked. What comes out of her mouth makes her very ugly. When I see her on screen all I can hear is Nene saying “trash box” or whatever she said about Kim Z.

    Mr Sus came through the room while the dinner was on VPR. He said something extremely rude about her that I won’t repeat because it’s too disgusting and unbecoming to him for saying it! Only the trashiest people would get a label like that from him. Luckily Kristen distracted him and he started in on her!

    • TexasTart says:

      LOL!

    • Powell says:

      Sus that’s just how I felt & feel about Brandi. If this blog is her moving forward her 2014 is not going to be a good one. LOL at Mr. Sus. 🙂 Brandi ‘s trashbox ways are having people say things they wouldn’t ordinarily say.

    • MelTheHound says:

      Re the pass, Same here, same reasons.. As for the labels from, Mr Sus, I’m sure I’ve used the same ones to describe these HoWives. That’s all I need to say, I’m sure, about that 😉

    • chismosa™ says:

      Why the cc? Is Ohoven involved ?

      Hmm

      • TexasTart says:

        In any early episode they were having lunch with Carlton and the bee…anyway Kyle and Joyce laughed so hard they snorted…thus finding out they have that in common, lol.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Ahh ok-
          Well Joyce is anti Brandi/ but Brandi is anti lisa and pro Kyle now.

          So what’s Kyle’s ultimate move?

          They have the hair and snorting in common, cute.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            Kyle and Joyce like each other…and they both don’t like Carlton… that’s like being ‘blood sisters’ in Hollywood. 🙂

      • Stars99 says:

        Yeah, Chismosa… I agree with Tartsy – I think it was because of the snorting… And for the record… It’s not nice to make fun of people who occasionally snort when they laugh… I mean… They can’t help it… They’re innocent! lololol… Not that I’ve ever snorted when I’ve laughed or anything… Nope… nope…nope! lol

        • MelTheHound says:

          I think it’s fun when somebody laughs so hard they snort 🙂

          • Stars99 says:

            lol Mel… it’s embarrassing… and then you can’t stop snorting because it makes you laugh even harder cuz you’re so embarrassed… and then my face turns all red… It’s all quite entertaining, I’ve been told. lol.

            • MelTheHound says:

              Music to my ears and certainly nothing to put someone down for 😉

              • Powell says:

                No I find it quite funny when Kyle and Joyce snort when they laugh cuz to me it’s real. They’re really having fun in that moment.

          • its mortifying and I do it all the time! I also laugh when I cry…that SUPER sucks!

            • Stars99 says:

              Holds hands in solidarity with thestoryofuslivingwithautism…. Would it help you to know that I laugh hysterically when I’m afraid… like on a roller coaster? I don’t scream… I just laugh really, really hard… lolol…I actually don’t usually refer to it as a “snort”… I call it a “snork”… Cuz well, it sounds a lil daintier to me… lol…[snork, snork]… hic… ooops… lol…

        • chismosa™ says:

          I don’t think she had any length cut off. Maybe layers cut in or very strong secretive extensions in. (Shhhh)

          Wendy will ask to pull her hair. Oh man Hoyce why you got to go on my Wendy!?!? Dammit 😒😒

      • Powell says:

        Her hair looks great.

        • TexasTart says:

          Yes it does….I think for Kyle and Joyce, their is very much their trademark, and considering the length takes so many years…it’s real. I understand it’s a big deal having something done with it! So I don’t mind them tweeting about hair – I think they earned the right to brag!

          • Powell says:

            I think they do too. They both have beautiful hair and they take care of it. No need for extensions. I believe all the other ladies throughout the seasons have worn extensions. Except I haven’t really paid to much attention to Carlton to be able to tell.

          • sparklemuffy says:

            I thought some of the off season pics of Kyle has her hair much shorter ??? I’m thinking the last 6 inches of her hair is extensions ???

  6. TexasTart says:

  7. Powell says:

    You know what? Brandi just should have skipped writing this week’s blog. It really doesn’t make any sense & it just makes her look more jealous of Joyce and it just makes her look more stupid.

    • Stars99 says:

      I only dream of the time that Brandi skips writing her blog… They are so convoluted it makes me crazy! Although, then I’d probably complain about her not writing her blog. lol… You just can’t win with me, sometimes!

      • Powell says:

        I’d be happy if she skipped a few. Are hers always up first? I bet she has hers pre-planned to justify her behavior and then she does edits based on the epi.

        • Stars99 says:

          They all are pretty good about blogging in BH as compared to other franchises… I think some of them are getting a little wiser though… By waiting until others post their blogs so they can immediately respond and diffuse any criticism they receive… There’s usually 1 or 2 stragglers a couple days later… but generally they’re pretty good.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Stars, your write up of the blogs are better than anything they could write!!

        I think that the reason Brandi went into Joyce’s tag line is because she has to have people be upset with Joyce, so why not say that Joyce promotes anorexia. The whole thing is ludicrous.

        Carlton is just riding Brandi’s coattails. This will be her only season. Yolanda seemed to be more fair in discussing both Brandi and Joyce. I am sure she reading her twitter comments and her blog comments.

        Downton in two and a half hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Stars99 says:

          Thanks so much Sue… Yeah, I think Brandi was grasping at straws. I’m trying to remember… I think there was a site that had everyone’s taglines throughout the years… I thought it was for all of the franchises… but perhaps it was only RHOC – at their 100th show… dang it… now I’m gonna hafta figure it out…lol… Woo hoo… Downton!!!

  8. TexasTart says:

    Portia from RHOA is on WWHL tonight.

  9. ladebra says:

    Thank you Starzy! Another really entertaining blog. I must say I don’t read the blogs for the most part, well, cause I think the shows are soap operas now BUT I really love reading your blogs!

    All these days off, and short weeks, have me wishing I only worked 4 days a week 🙂 my new goal for 2014 is to finaigile my way into a work from home day. (It’s good to set goals lol)

    Watching the temps for a lot of the country makes me glad I live where I do. Hope all of you are tucked in warm and safe!

    • Powell says:

      Ladebra I think the President should write a Proclamation that Sat, Sun & Mon are the new weekend. 🙂
      Yes get that work at home day. I work at home every Wed & Thurs every other week. I love it.

    • Stars99 says:

      Awww, thanks, ladebra, my neighbor… They are soap operas, aren’t they? I think they should play fun soap operay-kinda music in the background… That would be fun! It would also be help us keep track of the good guys and the bad guys…

      • Powell says:

        Stars if Bravo played that organ type of music they used to play on soap operas long ago I would just crack up. And how soap actors hang onto their last word for the commercial break. Too funny.

  10. Powell says:

    And another thing. Everything is “cute” with Brandi. “Cute” or “Fu*k You”. Was it cusi that said Brandi is such a Wordsmith? 😉

  11. Powell says:

    So it was alright for Ken to stick up for Brandi when he wasn’t around for a lot of what happened last season but it’s not ok for Michael to stick up for his wife? But Brandi said it’s ok for a man to stick up for his wife but never to yell at a woman. I didn’t see Michael yell at anyone. Just speak up for Joyce. Ughhhhh Stars I’m w/you. I’m exhausted by this. How do you do it? 🙂

    • Stars99 says:

      Powelly-pooh… It is absolutely exhausting for us all, isn’t it? Some weeks, to be honest, I have a really hard time getting through the blogs… It’s all justification after justification… circular reasoning… blame game… etc…. One of these days I’m going to rewrite all of their blogs to reflect what they really SHOULD be saying, IPPHO©®™… lol

  12. Nancy says:

    Thank-you Stars99. Great blog. 🙂

  13. Cartwheels says:

    I see that Brandi and Carlton have identical blogs almost to the word when it comes to addressing Joyce’s statement and how it promotes anorexia.
    I would like to know where was their outrage when Yolanda told her 17 year old daughter who called her to tell her that she was dizzy because she has been doing the master cleanse to chew two full almonds and to chew them slowly, that was sound advice from Yolanda I guess.
    Joyce repeated a saying that has been around for decades but if anything makes me think of anorexia, bulimia of other eating disorders I would say that Yolanda’s advice to Gigi tops the chart.
    Bunch of hypocrites.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill™ says:

      Joyce’s tag line is stupid-so what! Has anyone every had a tag line that was fabulous? I don’t think so. You can clearly see Brandi’s desperation to call out Joyce on this b/c she doesn’t have anything else to call her on right now. Saying Joyce is promoting anorexia is a reach-a big reach! If we wanted to pick apart every word they say none of them are promoting a healthy life style so going after Joyce on this tag line thing is stupid-for Brandi and Carlton. Neither of them are the picture of physical or mental health. Seriously giving your MIL a lap dance on TV doesn’t really show you have a “healthy” mentality-it makes you look like a giant nut ball!!
      Joyce saying Brandi brought her black friend to Kyle’s store to show she wasn’t racist was a silly thing for Joyce to say but it may not be entirely wrong-I mean Brandi did post pictures on her face book of her black friends for that particular reason so why not bring a friend along to show who you are?
      I love how Brandi out right lies in her blog-at least twice. Saying Joyce didn’t say hello to her and saying that Michael was yelling at her are both lies-coming from a woman who screams that she NEVER lies!!
      I see many Brandi fans (all over the internet) going after Joyce because she is not putting up with Brandi’s crap-exactly the same thing Brandi is doing. She can’t see what she said to Joyce (all the things) as wrong so she is looking for anything to cling to that makes Joyce look bad. If Joyce is a bad person we will see it-but Brandi isnt sure we will so she is trying her best to help us along and it makes her look silly small and not very bright!!

      • TexasTart says:

        There have been some really good taglines IMO, I can’t access my list, but Ramona and Lisa usually have the best.

        Lisa Vanderpump: “Life isn’t all diamonds and rose…but it should be”

        Brandi Glanville (this isn’t fabulous, but true!)
        “Money doesn’t buy you class it just gives you money.”

      • Powell says:

        JNNTJ I just thought of this. So Brandi was promptly anorexia why she wore those itsy bitsy teeny bikinis whet we could see how thin she was?

      • Stars99 says:

        Lol…Jill… the right Jill… not that other one… Yeah… Didn’t it almost seem like Brandi was throwing everything she possibly could think of at Joyce… even once again brought up the hair flipping saga. I was especially interested that she called Joyce a, “liar”… I think it was careful labeling… because of course, once established as a “liar” – then Brandi can reason Joyce was also lying about what Brandi said about Lisa behind her back on that original phone call. She is fighting… and she is fighting dirty… IS99HO©®™

    • Powell says:

      Cartwheels you’re right. Yo didn’t mean to promote anorexia either but that sort of advice is something that I can see leading to those illnesses. We all know the saying “You should think before you speak”. Boy oh boy does that ring true this season.

      • Stars99 says:

        Oh Powelly-Pooh… If only I would think before I speak… I could NEVER go on one of these shows… at least not without having some snarky blogger have fun with me… lol!

    • Stars99 says:

      Wasn’t that funny, Cartwheels? It made me laugh when they had such similar paragraphs. And you’re absolutely right about Yo and the almonds… that was very wonky…

      • Cartwheels says:

        Can you imagine if anybody would ask or tell Yolanda that her advice to her daughter couldn’t have been healthy is any way? Yolanda would have a quiet fit and that person surely won’t receive a heart on their name for next season’s dinner at the Fosters.
        I bet that is what stops anybody from saying anything about Yolanda, they all want a big, fat heart next to their names. :eyeroll:

    • plainviewsue says:

      Cartwheels, I tweeted that very same statement regarding “almond gate.” I tagged Yolanda, Brandi, Carlton & Joyce in that tweet. Joyce favorite it. None of the other ladies responded, shocker.

      Hypocrites.

  14. Powell says:

    I think Carlton and her MIL have a good relationship. The trip to Hustler, sex talk was a bit weird to me but it’s ok, w/Carlton’s husband so I guess it’s a good thing for them.
    I don’t think Joyce had any intentions on promoting anorexia w/her tagline. It’s just something she said just like they all say w/their taglines. It may or may not make sense to anyone but Joyce so Brandi & Carlton need to back off. They just need to have something to say about Joyce cuz they really don’t have any legitimate gripe w/Joyce. Carlton is boring. She’s like Cindy who. She’ll be gone next season.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Yeah I hope Carlton and Joyce are both gone. I suppose Brandy too.
      I don’t care for those Dicks either.

      Interesting that both Carlton and Hoyce will be in NYC at same time. Wonder if they’ll “connect” at all. LOL

  15. Powell says:

    I don’t think Joyce is a “one-up” type of person. Remember Peggy and Alexis on OC? “My daughter learned German at 6mths” “My son learned French and Portuguese in the womb”. They didn’t quite say these words but you remember they kept one-uping each other about their kids accomplishments. That was in your face and they did it better than anyone I’d ever seen do it .

    • Stars99 says:

      Powelly-Pooh… I can’t tell if Joyce is a “one-up” type of person… I think she is a center of attention kind of person… but I haven’t seen anything really egregious that she’s done… other than making a mountain out of a molehill… Which is something they ALL do…

      • Powell says:

        The only thing that got on my nerves was Lisa’s hair. That was most definitely a mountain out of a molehill. But that’s nothing. I don’t not like her cuz of that. She’s ok. I like her better than Carlton.

      • Rebecca™ says:

    Everybody knows the cowbell 🐮reference! Probably one of the most famous SNL skits of all time. 
    SNL is notorious for their property being difficult to find online, I believe they have their own site for it- or it used to be via Hulu. It’s on my best of will ferrel DVD and he said its one of his fave skits he did. 

    I can’t believe Donny bonaduce said that line- I had heard it so much but didn’t know it was him. Deep thoughts Jack Handy! 

    And is it true they go to Puerto Rico in AUGUST??!?!?!??? Just like they went to Palm Springs in very hot season? Bravo must want to punish or “chastise” 😉 😜 the women! In the blistering heat! 
    The last time I was in pr was June and I wanted to die. Yikes !!! If Hoyce doesn’t put her hair up there I’m DONE with her. Just completely DONE. ❎
    Why don’t they film the California shows in WINTER and the east coast shows in SUMMER? Jeeze 

    — VV hope you’re feeling better – ps I agree with your take on the dinner that you put in yesterday in the comments —

    –Exit, hope kitty is ok. 😦 

    –Lulu, stay healthy! I’m fighting people around me too…. Like a madwoman. 
    And I can’t believe Cynthia’s sister and the sex either – Cuh-razy! But I hear on other blogs that her hubby is a cheater (basketball player, overseas…..aha) — but wow. I still like the sister. Hiding marriage certificate and all. HA

      Thank you Chismosa!!! Mal’s reaction of “you just do it” even if you are tired its telling. I have a hard time believing her husband would cheat though. Where would he find the time!?!?!

    • Stars99 says:

      You’re welcome, Chismosa… I wish Bravo would make their site better… it is really crappy and not easy to navigate through… Perhaps they should ask people for their ideas and make improvements… Ya think? It’s too bad… that network has so much potential and it just irritates me they have settled on some really crappy programming. I heard Danny Bonaduce say that line on the radio… but I’m sure he probably heard it from somewhere else himself… but it was the first time I had heard it… I really love the cow bell skit… makes me laugh every time I watch it. It is weird it isn’t on the NBC site… it must be on itunes so you have to buy it or something equally lame…

  18. Powell says:

    Yo is looking at Brandi and Joyce thru lemon colored glasses. Brandi can do no wrong and Joyce is all wrong. Yo says she’s not Brandi ‘s mother but she sure acts like Brandi is her child that she’s defending and not listening to the truth. It’s really sad cuz she’s not helping her “friend”.

  19. Patricia says:

    Uh huh! BULLSHIT BRANDI!

  20. MelTheHound says:

    Ooooh…. Joyce told the Lemondrop to STFU and stick her etiquette lessons in her bony butt where she pulls them from (at least that’s the way I read it 😉 ).. Still #teamnoneofthem but I’m liking Joyce more and more. I just wish she would stop with the hair flips…

And for that matter I don’t want to see ballgags, thongs, whips, drunks, dog trainers, bathing suit/lingerie shopping, driving schools, dog poo and pee, and bad behavior!!! There is a show called “Girls Behaving Badly” if I wanted to see bad behavior. I don’t watch that show for a reason!!!! I am so over Brandi. She was fun at first because she was the “Truth Cannon” and called people out for stuff. Now she is just a “Loose Cannon™® ©” And if Michael hadn’t backed his wife up people would be bitching about that….. Yo, seriously, your husband is such a HouseHusband, give it up and #getwise!!!!!!

Retin-A. _It’s best if you can get a sample instead of having to buy a whole tube ( it is available in generic– we are using the same tube for about 8 years now , and I can share with friends) Just a dot on a new zit and it literally disappears by the next day. 2 days for those ugly painful ones. It is worth asking your Doc for. FYI– I would not put it all over my face or use for spots etc — it is tres harsh—

    I have noticed that Yolanda likes to be filmed running around her mansion in a bathrobe with her boobs ready to bust out…that’s new for her…dumb but new. And then she had rollers in her hair before her dinner party but her rollers didn’t help-her hair is a mess and it was always a mess! She needs to #getwise #getdressed #getahairstylist #getoverherself….in that order!!

    • VV™ says:

      #getwhitejeans

      Yolanda is always wearing white pants or jeans…

    • Stars99 says:

      Yeah… but really, right now her hair is probably not that healthy anyway… not that I’m making a lot of excuses for her… but sometimes illnesses can really wreak havoc on your hair – especially noticeable if it’s long. I’d rather her wear her own hair than a wig, not that there’s anything wrong with that… but it was just weird to me that Kim Z… after she revealed her real hair still insists on wearing a new wig every day. Perhaps I’m just weird… but that seems odd to me.

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

        Stars-I’m sure her health has something to do with her bad hair and that is why I said her hair has always been a mess-in every picture I have ever seen of her (besides professional modeling ones) her hair is awful.

    • ladebra says:

      Knowing that Yolanda has the goal of a lifestyle show … A lot of her camera time, parties, lemon trees, etc make more sense. She is auditioning. #iamwisetoyou

    • chismosa™ says:

      I love her body but I notice that too Ashy/ she seems to have a bra on underneath ready to bust out at any moment 👻

  32. VV™ says:

    Starzy Thanks for the blogs!

    I think what Lisa meant when she was telling Joyce to let it go is almost the same as when Sonja on Scary Island told the other ladies to stop fighting with KKB as she was beyond reasoning or when Lisa didn’t fight with Taylor at Tea party but tried to see where she was coming from after Taylor was going after Lisa.
    I think Joyce ( and I can understand to a certain point ) came to the SUR dinner fed up by Brandi and felt secure because hubby was there to let Brandi have it. I thought they were okay after Palm Spring breakfast but apparently not.

    Something about Joyce doesn’t fully convince me. Not sure what it is…maybe because Twitter is such a great tool to see what the cast frame of mind is. When she retweeted a while back a tweet that included the word “gringo or gringa” (I posted here), it rubbed me the wrong way. The tweet was in Spanish.

      She’s calling Lisa and Joyce silly? I hope whatever happened between Brandi and Lisa is not Lisa’s fault-right now Lisa has not lost her fan base but some have moved to Brandi’s side of things. If we see Lisa actually being shady I’m afraid that Brandi’s more “passionate” fans will go completely insane on Lisa!

              Brandi is an adult. She could have told Lisa no. I think she didn’t not so much for Lisa ( if true) but because Yolanda and Kyle were still at odds and Brandi wanted to help Yofo but hurting Kyle.
              Don’t forget Yofo and Brandi never stopped being tight after Paris.

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

                But VV-if Lisa told Brandi to bring the mags and she did-it would seem that Lisa was trying to cause some drama for Kyle right?

                • VV™ says:

                  That’s Brandi’s version. Are we to believe Brandi’s version? What if it was Yofo the one that encourage Brandi? At the time, it seems to me that Yofo had more of a bone to pick with Kyle ( Kyle called her liar on National TV) than Lisa to stir the pot.
                  Again, this is Brandi’s version…..

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

                    I know it’s Brandi’s version that why I said IF Lisa asked her to bring the mags…
                    I’m not saying I believe Brandi’s version-she lies easily-I’m just wondering why Lisa would ask her to do that IF it is true.’

                    • VV™ says:

                      My theory is Brandi already knew her behavior was atrocious so far. Her cover of good friend to Lisa was blown by Joyce.
                      Brandi’s approach to her problems is that they are never her fault. She needed to blame somebody and she was not going to backstab her new bestie Yofo. So, she blamed Lisa fully.

              • Nancy says:

                True but Brandi said that Lisa wasn’t owning any of it.

                • VV™ says:

                  I personally don’t see what the big deal is about the magazines? Unless, Kyle gives them credibility by getting all hurt. Having said that. This is what Brandi claims. Why are we believing Brandi now?

                  • Powell says:

                    So Brandi welcomed the rag mags when they were full of Eddie and LeAnn?

                    • VV™ says:

                      I don’t think I understand your question.
                      What I’m saying is they are taping a reality show. Brandi (who apparently brought some magazines) is excusing herself of guilt by saying. “She made me bring them”.

        • VV™ says:

          Whatever happened in PS made Kyle cry. Brandi was the one making threats to Kyle. She must have uttered something very hurtful or damaging that made Kyle cry.
          It was edited out much like when she uttered the surrogacy issue with Adrienne. Brandi was very very drunk at that dinner.

      • VV™ says:

        Brandi has a lot less fans than Lisa and when you add International fans, there is no competition. Brandi is in self destruct mode. Yes, Brandi has a loyal, very loud group of fans but that still didn’t stop HRC from dropping her from an event. Brandi’s fans too will get tired of her antics.
        Let Brandi’s fans go after Lisa. Lisa can handle.
        Brandi has already made enemies across HW cities. Her feud with Nene, Kenya, Joanna Kruppa are known and I’m sure the list will continue to increase in time.

        • Exit4 says:

          I agree with what you wrote above that Lisa kept telling Joyce to stop because she knows Joyce is the saner of the 2! To try and shut Brandi up would be fruitless and probably set her off even more.

          As for the magazines whoever brought then probably did so to create drama for the show. Like in NJ when they kept bringing out the Teresa magazines and then acting like they had NO CLUE how media works!

        • Powell says:

          Sorry VV. I was just meaning that Brandi knows how hurtful the allegations made by the rag mags can be so she should have not done that to Kyle. And even though they turned out to be true about E & L.
          Brandi does a lot of things to others that have happened to her and she has no compassion at all.

          • VV™ says:

            Brandi said she wanted to give the heads up to Kyle, remember? To warn and prepare her about it. I even think Brandi wanted a Thank you from Kyle.
            All I know is Brandi has ruined this franchise.

          • Nancy says:

            IF this is true (about the mag’s) it wasn’t very nice of Brandi and Lisa. Yes
            I know this is a reality show but…

            • VV™ says:

              The mags “geographic location” don’t mean a thing. That’s what I don’t understand what the big deal is.
              They had already talked about them and the content of the mags. It was nothing new to them and us viewers.

              • Powell says:

                VV I wouldn’t think it should have been a big deal either to Kyle since she & Mo say it isn’t true but Lisa & Brandi & occasionally Yo kept talking about it over and over and over again and from viewers observations it seemed Kyle was getting more & more sensitive to it. She could have put a stop to it but it also seems like she liked playing the victim. “I don’t bring this into pur house” Kyle said and w/crocodile tears flowing.

        • MelTheHound says:

          Brandi’s fans too will get tired of her antics.

  38. lulu says:

    This is bugging me not good with links but google 3 year old dies during dental procedure in Hawaii. I find it completely tragic but what the hell is wrong with the parents. She was having 3 root canals and 6 fillings!?!?!? Did they put coke in her baby bottle and fed her jolly ranchers!?!? Its sad I feel for them but I can’t help thinking about the dental work she was having.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I was reading some posts about this online and someone said they brought their child to the same dentist who told her almost the same thing (your child has multiple cavities and is in need of root canals) . The parent was outraged as to their untrained eye , they could only see what looked like one cavity.

      The parent went and got a second opinion, it turned out her child did have the one cavity, plus a little tiny tiny one. But certainly not what the first dentist in question said…

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

        One root canal at that age is too much! Maggie is 7 and if her dentist told me she needed root canal I would get a second opinion-it’s so young for dental issues especially in this day and age where kids are going for check ups and cleanings twice a year!!

        • Lulu says:

          I personally would not subject my children to a root canal on teeth that are not permanent. A friend of mine allows her children to eat all kinds of candy, soda and pastries. The middle child now 5 had to have 6 teeth removed and a temporary retainer so that when her permanent teeth come in it won’t come in crooked I didn’t even mention fillings. She blames her daughter for poor dental hygene and eating habits?!?!?!?!? Ummmm I have terrible teeth 4 root canals, 2 extractions all of my back teeth have been filled multiple times. In my pantry NO soda, or candy in the house! I only allow on occasion my son to have chocolate that is unfilled and atleast 60% cocoa. I don’t want my boys to have the same problems I did. So I never allow it in the house! Just sad it’s completely tragic but it’s enraging as well.

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

            I’m not as strict with my girls but they have great dental hygiene!

          • Powell says:

            So her 5yr old runs the house? That’s like “my child set the house on fire”. Some people shouldn’t be parents.

            • lulu says:

              She was 16 with her first she is married to the father and they have a successful business. Just bad at overindulging.

    • Nancy says:

      lulu…have you been following the case re: a 13 yr old that went in to have
      her tonsils removed but ending up brain dead? That’s the hospital I worked in. 😦

      • Lulu says:

        OMG Nancy!?!?!?! Any ideas what happened???

        • Nancy says:

          It’s so tragic. From what I have heard she started bleeding post-op and they didn’t
          catch it in time. She’s brain dead but her parents didn’t want her removed from
          the ventilator so they had to get some attorney’s involved. Technically the hospital
          had the right to turn on the machine after 3 scans that showed no brain activity
          so it got really ugly. I believe she got transferred yesterday to another facility. The
          parents weren’t ready to accept the fact that she was dead. How sad is that?

          • Nancy says:

            turn off

          • lulu says:

            From what I read I can’t help wondering while in recovery. If the mother gave her a piece of candy as a complete innocent gesture. That is what caused the blood clot to open??? We probably will never know but that is what I keep thinking.

          • TexasTart says:

            Nancy, you are right, this is all about the parents can not accept their daughter is dead. What they are doing is wrong. And how the hell do they propose to pay for someone to be on a breathing machine and IV feeding daily?! Insurance will NOT cover people wbo have been declared deceased.

            • Nancy says:

              I can’t really blame them though. I couldn’t imagine what they are going through
              right now as I don’t have any “real” children. Maybe if the child wasn’t so heavy
              the surgery might not have been needed.

            • lulu says:

              I don’t remember the source but they have very good insurance through the fathers job. They probably are crowd funding to keep her life support going.

      • Powell says:

        That is tragic also. My goodness. Her poor mom is so heartbroken because she didn’t follow her instincts. Such a common operation. My mom reminded me that yrs ago she ended up w/pneumonia after a dental procedure. Unfortunately some people shouldn’t practice medicine.

    • Powell says:

      OMG that’s just crazy!!! I’m sorry the baby died that just tragic. But like you said Lulu what we’re they feeding the baby to even have one cavity? And you moms know better than I that during annual check-ups the pediatrician looks at the baby’s teeth and says asks about the baby’s diet and makes suggestions based on what they see. I’ve been to appts w/baby cousins over the yrs and remember those types of exams and questions.

    • TexasTart says:

      I think that dentist is working on his next new car. Period.

      Not believing a 3 year old could possibly develop as many issues. I know someone who was told multiple root canals and fillings needed. I asked him if he was in pain – no just a check up. So a second opinion was obtained and he only needed ONE filling. And turned that SOB into the state board.

      I didn’t read about the 3 year old, but in my opinion that is a failure of common sense on the parents part to allow the work done and I hate saying this because of what happened….don’t you know they will always carry that guilt. 😦

      • BB says:

        I’ve told doctors (and dentists) no in the past when it concerned myself and my kids. I wasn’t afraid to do it and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. They aren’t gods, they don’t know everything, and I’m responsible for my well-being, not them. I’m not stupid. I know they went to med school and all that. But I always carefully weigh the pros and cons before making an important decision. I’ve seen people intimidated by their doctors, but not me, and dealing with my mom’s health issues has made me even bolder. My mom comes from the generation that doctors know everything and you are supposed to do everything they tell you and take any medicine they prescribe for you. My mom’s doctor is an over-prescriber and I’ve taken a couple of meds away from her she definitely did not need because they were affecting her mental capacity. That part of her health has definitely improved since last April when she was in the hospital for 10 days and I found out what was what. He primary doctor probably doesn’t like to see me coming with her on her visits, but guess what. He’s stuck with me. lol. If I hadn’t changed her gastroenterologist a month ago, she’d still be going around suffering with gall bladder disease. You’ve got to be proactive and ask lots of questions. Sermon over.

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

          Good sermon!! People are afraid to question doctors dentists etc-not me!! After Maggie got sick I started opening my mouth and asking questions more and more-we have to be advocates for the old and young and for our selves!!

        • chismosa™ says:

          Bravo BB!

          I wish more people were like this. That’s why this thing I think it’s called a “health advocate” that we have in ny- but they kind of imply on the forms that you should not choose a family member ?
          My mothers best friend who died tragically out of the blue 3 years ago was going to use my mom as hers.

          So good for you to do that for your mom! I am always preaching to my friends that they should CHANGE doctors if they are not sure about things ! At least 2nd opinions ….. People are so scared about messing with doctors !

      • chismosa™ says:

        I agree with you about the common sense on the parents’ part

    O/T. I have spent my last day of vacation (while Just Jack’s mom has been off work) with my mom at the ER. She was covered with hives. WTF! What else can happen to my poor mom? No explanation as to why she has them (no new meds, no weird food that she’s never had before, she’s not stressed out, no new clothes detergent or soaps). They gave her steroids and other stuff and sent her home with meds. Just called her and she’s already better. I would like to have ONE day, just one, where I didn’t have to worry about anyone else but myself. PIty party over.

        • BB says:

          No it’s not shingles, Cusi. Shingles don’t normally go all over your body. Her lips and hands were swollen and she was covered with the big red welts (on her back, butt, arms, neck, face. I think shingles are red and scaly looking. These were definitely hives and the steroids definitely helped them go down within a few hours.

          • cusi77 says:

            True BB! Shingles is just half of the body… I had them on my back 9 years ago and repeated March 2013 on my right side of the head (under my hair…) It is so painful… I don’t wish to have them not even to the worst enemy…

  48. New England Girl says:

    As someone who was (unfortunately) married to a dentist for 21 years, I was horrified when I read about the precious girl in Hawaii who died at the hands of an obviously unscrupulous dentist. We’re talking baby teeth here – THEY’RE GOING TO FALL OUT. It’s so very important to teach your kids good hygiene, to limit sweets, etc. At this stage of the game taking them to the dentist is to get them comfortable going because it can be a very scary thing for even us big kids. Fillings are pretty routine and sealants are highly recommended. However, extensive work like that should send up major red flags, especially for a child that young. Because so many people do not have dental insurance, there isn’t the regulation and oversight that is a mainstay in traditional medicine, and these shysters know it.

    Another scam in place are ‘pre-braces’. Yes, Mrs. Smiith, you need to spend thousands of dollars to straighten out baby teeth that ARE GOING TO FALL OUT. It seems to be a status thing. My sister wouldn’t listen to me and did it with both of her boys and their permanent teeth came in way more crooked than their baby teeth (WHICH FELL OUT) and they had to spend the money and put the boys through the whole thing again. Ugh! Second opinions, Moms and Dads.

    In closing, I love this group and read here all the time. One of my resolutions is to start posting and to stop being A Lurk.

    Hey my LynnFam friends! I know it’s been a long time and I am back with the update. Well, first off we are going to be suing the first Hospital I went to around Thanksgiving. They were complete morons, ran the wrong tests, and the tests they ran that showed the issues, they totally missed, apparently from the notes they thought I was someone looking for drugs. SIGH. So, I went to a new hospital and got the correct diagnosis. I have Cancer, it’s Thyroid Cancer, however it has spread, but the doctors at the two Cancer centers are positive we can manage the disease for many years with Radiation treatments, some further surgery, and just my positive attitude of kicking the SHIT out of this thing. I am the Pollyanna PosterChild of not taking this lying down, I am going to fight it head on, kicking and screaming, and trying every new and old procedure and treatment they can come up with. All my docs love the attitude and said that’s what going to help with my progress. I am extremely Lucky to live in Tampa, as we have two of the most esteemed Cancer units in the country in town, Moffitt Cancer Center and the USF Oncology Unit. I have the Head Director of USF on my team, and The Doctor at Moffitt is going to be the Quarterback calling all the “plays” to kick this crap out of my system. So, Prognosis is, we don’t know could be five years could be 25 years, who knows. So, I know that all of you have been wondering what’s going on and sorry it took this long to post everything here for all of you. I am a FIGHTER, and this is going to be Fabulous Fourteen, as I spend 2014 kickin the shizznit out of this crap, and getting as much of it out of my system as possible.

      I’ll be in your corner while you fight this. Keep your fighting spirit up and good things will happen. And as for that other hospital, give it to them good. Been there, done that. I didn’t win, but I did scare a lot of people.
