Realhousewives Of Beverly Hills Cast Blogs Blogged
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…
– 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 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.”
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!
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 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 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!
