Shahs of Sunset – When Friendships Crumble

Shahs of Sunset – When Friendships Crumble by NMD

Shahs is a little different than some of the other Bravo shows as it centers around long term relationships/friendships between much of the cast.  The only exception is Lilly, who was added in season two, and is pretty much ignored by the remainder of the cast this season.

For the last few weeks we’ve seen Mike and Reza’s relationship crumble and then get patched back together.  Mike doesn’t have the stomach to fight with the man who at times is his best friend.

GG and MJ were in a good place at the beginning of the season.  Whatever goodwill there was has slowly eroded.  GG has become rabidly jealous that MJ is back to being best friends with Reza;; she can’t let it go.  For some reason, this seems to empower MJ, and she goes out of her way to poke at GG.  It’s like poking at a tiger – it doesn’t take much to get GG’s claws out and when they appear everyone had better watch out.  None of this is helping GG’s relationship with her sister.  Leila has dealt with GG her entire life and finds it hard to ever believe her stories or take her side.  This episode, she needed to hear from Mike that GG wasn’t totally in wrong when she snapped at MJ during their outing to the racetrack.  Leila would never make a housewife, because the moment she learned she was wrong she apologized to GG – without a “but …”.

Lilly has no relationship with the remainder of the cast, but Asa is trying a little to include her in group activities.  For some reason, Reza is hurt/offended that Lilly has walked away from this toxic cast.  He thinks Lilly is all about Lilly, as he lists of all the things HE needs from a friend.  I suspect it’s impossible to be friends with Reza without stroking his ego, and my opinion of Lilly is pretty high as she tells Reza she really doesn’t want anything to do with him.   Unfortunately for viewers, this means we’re stuck watching Lilly in filler scenes all season.  This episode she tries on wigs with her friends.  Yawn.  She decides not to go to Turkey with the group.  Bravo executives must have been ready to fire her by now.



Reza and MJ are joined at the hip this season.  MJ has decided to get a spray tan, so of course we need to watch it.  I think this is part of MJ’s quest to show us every part of her body, and we certainly get a good look at her enormous boobs.  It’s actually fun to see MJ and Reza have fun, and he tells us that he’s just as much as a hot mess on the inside as MJ.  While it’s good to see them getting along, it’s too bad that it empowers both of them to be mean to other people.

Mike seems to be completely over his issues with Reza.  He’s decided to try to keep up with Reza in the style department, and takes his mom and girlfriend shopping with him to buy a “loud” outfit, because his mom having a good relationship with his future wife is essential to his happiness.  While he tells us that his mom’s style is conservative and Jessica’s is edgy, I can’t help but notice that not only do they agree that everything he picks out is awful, but they are also dressed like twins in white pants and a black top – with Jessica wearing a little jacket on top.  They finally settle on something that is a little less conservative than he usually wears – but nothing garish like Reza’s typical choices.

This is all for Asa’s “art’ party.  Asa’s managed to keep good relationships with everyone, after fighting with GG most of last season, and marginalizing MJ.  Everyone shows up to support her but Lilly.  It’s performance art and …. interesting.   I’ve got to say, Asa does try her best to be alternative and give viewers a show.  More surprising is that MJ and GG put down their knives for the event and don’t bring any drama.   Well, more surprising is that Jessica snaps a little at MJ when MJ is being rude.  I guess everyone has their limits.


It’s hard to say what is wrong with GG and Leila’s relationship, but it’s been broken for a long time.  Even though Leila apologized for assuming GG was in the wrong with her fight with MJ, the fallout from that is still not over.  MJ really crossed the line in this one.  After leaving the racetrack, she drunk phoned GG’s mom and went on a huge rant.  Instead of avoiding MJ, Leila has MJ and Reza over to help her move.  When GG shows up to say that she’s too buy to help, they hide in the kitchen so that GG doesn’t see them.  GG and Leila get into a huge fight because GG isn’t helping with the move.  It goes on and on and on, with MJ and Reza eavesdropping.  It’s ugly, with GG asking Jordan – Leila’s oldest daughter – to take her side.  Jordan jumps in to defend her.  It’s just the saddest thing when adults involve kids in their fight.  To make a bad situation worse, MJ’s dogs wander out from the kitchen, and GG realizes MJ is there.  She storms out.  In all honesty, Leila should be part of the cast and Lilly removed; she has a bigger story line and more screen time.

Next week Turkey.  Let’s hope they leave the fighting at home.

    Good morning. Thanks for the blog, NMD. Hope you are back to normal Powell. Sorry for those of you with too much cold and or snow. Stay warm! 😀

  2. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I hope everyone in the snow survived it. Its 8 degrees. Too darn cold.
    I didn’t watch Shahs. My migraine was worse last night so listening to fighting wouldn’t have been good. I hope its outta here today. Ugh.
    Everyone be good and have a great day.

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      Hope you are feeling better today Powell!!
      It’s freezing cold and snow everywhere!! We have at least 10-12 inches!

    • LaineyLainey BTHOC, TRex says:

      Sorry about your migraine, Powellypooh! Are you working from home today?

    • chismosa™ says:

      Powell ouchie – didn’t know about the headache – please feel better!

      • Powell says:

        I worked at home today. I stop at 4:30. At 4:31 I was in a hot bubble bath so that helped me feel much better. With a restful sleep tonight I should be my old self in the morning. THks. 🙂

    • djprincessc says:

      I HATE migraines Powell, I’ve had them since I was a little girl. Feel better, they are not fun at all 😦 xo.

  3. BB says:

    Hope you feel better soon Powell. We got a couple of inches of snow. Not bad, but it’s really cold and windy. 17 degrees.

  4. Good morning,

    I’m heading to Portland with hubs to get the official word that he’s five years cancer free. #KickCancerintheAss

    While each year it’s gotten easier – this feels like a milestone.

  5. ladebra says:

    Thank you for the blog, NMD. I didn’t watch Shahs but I watched WWH with Reza and Beth Stern. Actually enjoyed WWH, Reza was not as loud and obnoxious as normal and Beth Stern and her kitten bowl “aawwww”. I like Lilly. I don’t really blame her for not wanting to be around this crew. She has always been the outsider – and she is a successful business owner, she is an attorney (practicing or not), she doesn’t seem to enjoy drunk and disorderly. Doesn’t seem to crave confrontation and drama. I’m sure she isn’t perfect and has her own set of problems, but it doesn’t look like she wants to air them on TV. So this will probably be the last season for her. Hope she got something out of it. As Bethenny said, it’s not that easy to get on TV. Maybe the exposure has helped her businesses.

    Not gonna rub in how hot it is (82), but I hope all of you in the snow and cold are staying safe and warm!

    • LaineyLainey BTHOC, TRex says:

      HI Ladybra – Laineygirl arrives in L.A. today 5pm pacific time. She will enjoy the warm weather.

    • Powell says:

      I like Lilly too. MJs problem w/Lilly is that she’s jealous. She’s slim, beautiful and successful. I think MJ likes to party more than work. I think Lilly is more the ideal of what Persian wife could be more than MJ. MJ is more like her own mother than she realizes.

  6. Powell says:

    Kandi is on Bethenny.

  7. Powell says:

    Todd and Momma Joyce do not talk at all.

  8. ladebra says:

    Oh my, NMD, this is just so special. I can see why you guys love the Seahawks.

    • Powell says:

      I didn’t know there is a deaf football player. Way to go Seahawks. That’s awesome. That letter is so sweet. I’m sure that just made his day. He’s an inspiration.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        My Huskers had a football players a few year back named Kenny Walker who was deaf and a pretty good football player at that. On his last home game in his senior year, the crowd was instructed to stand and wave their hands in the air so he could ‘hear’ our applause when he was introduced on Senior Day. The look on his face when he came out onto the field as he looked north, east, south and west was priceless. We could see it on the large Husker Vision screen. Brought tears to my eyes.

  9. Powell says:

    Isn’t it amazing how cancer has touched so many of LynnFam? It really brings tears to my eyes. BIG hug to everyone and their families.

  10. Anyone else disturbed by Asa’s inflated ego? We have seen her “write” music, “sing”, put on a concert, make magic water (hmmm….did she get this idea from the Blk guys? Her water also claims some pretty amazing things! LOL! Still baffled that the rocket scientists at Blk initially claimed it treated autism…um, wouldn’t that mean Jac’s kid would not longer have autism? guess the research is still out on that one!) I just find Asa to be SO full of herself and I don’t get it. Maybe cause I have never had high self esteem I cannot relate to her at all.
    As for GG and Leila…OY VAY! Their poor parents must watch this show drunk every week. How do you watch your cray cray daughter threaten to gut people and then continue to bank roll her lifestyle? GG is a “taker” in life. She will take take take and never ever give. Her sister was dumped by her spouse and GG can’t be bothered to grab a box and help pack her sister’s shit yet, she will HATE the people that show up to help her sister. Don’t get me wrong, I think it is a little shady that Leila has built a friendship with GG’s current enemy, but with GG it is hard to say who is her enemy or friend from day to day.
    I am excited to see the episodes of them in Turkey next week. Hopefully, they can embrace the culture and leave their drama at home…but then why would I watch???

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      I don’t even watch this show but unfortunately I know who ASsA is.. She’s the famewhore who makes all the rest of them look like pikers.. Amateurs.

    • Powell says:

      I’ll watch this weekend. I don’t get GG supporting her sis on her terms only. Yeah it’s shady she’s friends w/MJ but that’s your sis. Help her move and not pay MJ any mind. MJs only their cuz she knew GG would be there and it would poss her off. Then MJ wonders why people get mad at her. I don’t know why Reza didn’t put MJ in her place when they went to the horse race. I think if he had there wouldn’t have been a fight w/MJ & Mike, MJ & GG.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Powell Reza is on total damage control from last season with MJ – everything she does now on the show is just AMAZINGGGG to him when last season she needed REHAB! 
        GG is right – they have eachother back- so they don’t need GG. They don’t need Lilly ! ($$$ deal gone awry?)
        They like Mike so can use him, but not GG. 
        And ASSSSa they all disliked S1 and mercilessly made fun of. 
        Ughhhh vah vayleh! Or whatever the expression is in Farsi. 

        • Powell says:

          You’re right Chismosa. It’s a shame. I don’t understand how they are that type of friend to the rest of the group.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Hi TSOULWA—

      I am a devoted shahs fan. But this season …:(

      I cannot stand Asssssa’s inflated ego either. I think the only way she got any sort of music deal WHATSOEVER is because her boyfriend (of many years …hmmm) – is a Jackson–>>>> the producer of her music was Quincy jones’ son. ✳️Blam

      I don’t know how her parents deal with her. 

      I can’t even begin to get into MJ and Reza as I’m so pissed off at them.
      EVERYTHING is other people’s fault and NEVER rezas fault. MJ also never seems to truly take accountability. She says “I did a rotten thing “. Then apologize bit*h!

      As crazy and off the rails as GG is – I’m team GG this season and I sense others from what I read online are as well. MJ is flabbergasting to me! 

      As for GG and leila – I don’t know. I don’t have a sister. And when a friend of ours passed away some years ago- I was always pissed at how her kids barely looked after her -and am still bitter. However then I started thinking, i wasn’t privy to how she raised the kids and maybe things that happened there that led to the fractured relationship. So I don’t know WHAT is up with leila and GG and also leila with MJ
      I think leila is closer in age to MJ and I really don’t think MJ and Reza went to “help out”- they were just watching. Then had to help because the terrible sister doesn’t. Which is true – GG needs to help but again, what do I know of their relationship ? Yes the parents need to stop enabling her. 

      I know at the horse race and GG going off on MJ- i agreed with GG! 
      Around this time I think MJ sent GG a tweet calling her seen you next Tuesday — 

      But now- in current time- they are wonderful 

      I feel for Lilly ….not sure how they’ll slide her away from the show but I guess they will. 
      I wish we got to see Lainey’s daughter! 

      I’m interested in the trip to turkey but I want to know more about what lilly said that she travels to Iran just fine every year. I LOVE that that annoyed asssssa – because then ASSa can’t be her “refugee” self 🙄 
      The facts are a lot of the people that fled Iran had LOADS of money. I question ASSa’s situation. She milks the *refugee* thing so much. Ugh! 

      I want to see if they go to Agia Sofia next week… That will be nice. Greek basilica, cough,cough, now mosque/museum. 😒
      I just can’t with MJ and Reza. I can’t. 
      I am team GG this season. Her and Mike. Go jessica for speaking back to MJ! 

      • chismosa™ says:

        I should add I know an Iranian woman and she visits her family in Iran every year with NO problem

        • Powell says:

          Asa and her family feel them being a relative of a political refugee would be reason enough for them to be killed. I don’t blame them for being scared. If it were me I wouldn’t set foot back there.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        I had thought all along that it was the parents who were refugees and the kids (lol — they’re way too old to be kids and behave like they do) were born in the US. If so, they certainly could travel. I think it’s hard to get there. You can’t go direct from the US, or at least you couldn’t in years past. But one can go there.

      • Powell says:

        You like MJs apology to GG. I’m sorry but I’m not.” WTH is that? If my friend has a BF and she’s kissing on some random guy while we’re out I’d say to her “You have a BF. That’s not cool. You wouldn’t appreciate it if he did the same to you.” But I wouldn’t tell the BF what she did.
        GG has calmed down a little this season. I think she saw herself last season and couldn’t believe what she had done. I think she wants a relationship w/Lela but only on her terms. They don’t know how to be sisters.
        A lot of MJs issue w/Lilly and GG are that she’s jealous of their looks. I don’t see any other reason for her to dislike them.

      • jeang says:

        I know I loved it when Jessica schooled that hateful witch. MJ thinks she is so wonderful so why doesn’t she ever have a man in her life unless its that worthless POS Reza? She is hateful, jealous, not attractive and not skinny(I really wanted to say uglier things but checked myself). Sorry to be so judgemental on looks but so is she and she shows herself to be that way each and every week. I also understand why Lilly dropped Reza when he didn’t voice that he was her friend when MJ said that nobody at that table was her friend. No one spoke up for her and I would walk away from them as well. Even when he was told by Lilly why she walked away from them/him, he still wouldn’t own his actions/lack of actions.

  11. I Need A Life! says:

    I’ve been trying to work things out in my mind. I’d like your help. I have two daughters in their mid-20s. Both have rewarding jobs, make a better than decent living, and struggle with everything we all struggle with…men/love, not having enough money for everything, finding place to live that’s affordable and close to work/city. Both have apartments in the city.

    During this deep freeze, I watched the entire 2 seasons of GIRLS and the new season. Never watched it before. I found it very depressing at first. It wasn’t the not great looking people having sex, though that was startling. I just don’t know what it is. I’m still sad when I watch. One daughter watches it regularly and told me, “It’s real, mom.”

    I haven’t been watching Beverly Hills. I was switching channels this week and it was on and the part with a woman on the dance pole was playing. She finished and the other women applauded and said she was perfect. That’s where my confusion comes in. I turned it off. I think the younger girls have figured it out. Their moms are exposed to women who are defined by their husbands. Women who have these perfectly manufactured bodies and faces.

    My question is do you think our daughters are on the right track watching GIRLS and maybe we’re just not helping our own self esteem by watching these unrealistic images of “housewives.”

    • LaineyLainey BTHOC, TRex says:

      wow, I NEED A LIFE, you pose such excellent questions. Unfortunately, I don’t have the answers. I worry about our youth, both male and female, too and the messages they get about what’s beautiful, successful, or worthy, etc. It makes me kind of sad for my son sometimes, because I think/suspect he’s not very confident in the girl department.

      • I Need A Life! says:

        I have a teenage son at home, Lainey. I will never have a frame of “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” play here. My girls watched, “Best Sweet 16 parties.” Remember that? Don’t tell me that the show didn’t effect them on some level. It might be my own insecurities, but it was hard throwing a “nice” birthday party compared to the million dollar parties on the screen. On the other hand, he was watching “teen moms” the other day. oye.

        • BB says:

          While I was flipping through channels this morning trying to find out about snow closings, I caught a partial segment of Bethenny where she was in the audience talking to a young lady who was dating a man 10 years older than her. This young lady had just found out this man had a set of triplets she didn’t even know about and some other stuff about him, though he doesn’t know she knows. Bethenny asked her friends if this young lady should continue to date him. They all seemed to think this wasn’t that big of a deal and yes she should keep dating him, while making up excuses why she should, like she was having fun and it didn’t mean she had to marry him, stuff like that. All four of them are single and looked to be in their mid-to-late 20’s. It kind of bummed me out and made me sad for them. It’s not that everyone should be out there looking for Mr. Right if they are not ready to settle down, but why waste time with losers and posers? These young women I keep seeing on television seem to have such low standards. Is this the norm now?

          • BB says:

            Sorry I need a life. I really didn’t answer your question.

            • Kansas Girl says:

              BB, I think that brings up an interesting dating question. If you enjoy the guy’s company and have a good time with him, should you drop him if he’s not interested in marriage? Are we only looking for marriage material, or are we looking for friends? I have GFs who tell me to drop any man who admits he doesn’t want marriage or an intimate relationship because I am wasting my time. But am I? Is it a waste of time to hang out with friends? My usual response to these GFs is that I can’t be friends with them either because they won’t marry me (LOL). They rarely get my point.

              • BB says:

                No, of course you shouldn’t drop him if he’s not interested in marriage if you’re not looking for a marriage partner. That wasn’t my point. Apparently this young lady was concerned because she had been dating a person for a while and he hadn’t told her some things she thought she should be aware of. I guess it’s a question of whether you are seriously dating a person, like exclusively, with the possibility of it turning into something more serious, which I think was the case in this young lady’s thinking, or whether you are dating just to have a good time and you aren’t interested in it turning into something more serious. I get your point but that wasn’t my point. lol Apparently this was a concern for this young lady or why else would she have brought it up?

          • Mari Anne Souza says:

            It is sad, it’s as if they’ll just settle for what they can get.

          • Powell says:

            BB I suspect they buy into the Reality TV way of life. That’s why it’s not a big deal to them.

          • chismosa™ says:

            It’s the desperation and the fact that at least in NYC – not sure where that girl was from– the ratio of men to women is staggering and the good ones DO seem to be taken.

            Hence—- women are settling.

            Joe Schmo can go get married at 60 to a 30 yr old and have kids. That’s what I yell at my brother about ! He’s lucky ! He can live it up for decades !


        • LaineyLainey BTHOC, TRex says:

          It’s important to keep it balanced, INEEDALIFE, imo. For example, yes we watch “Reality” but if you can balance that out for yourself and your girls and minor son with more uplifting fare it helps in keeping our own lives in a place of gratitude and real world perspective. You should (don’t mean to sound bossy) take him to go see “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” – – and documentaries about things going on all over this planet. North Korea, Russia, Africa, etc. Read REAL NEWS items together and discuss them. So, yes, there is a miniscule portion of the population that get to do those big Sweet 16’s but there are also youngsters in war torn countries, millions of good people who don’t even have clean water,…I’m not saying, go morbid,…but keep their view of the world more wide…more global. Not so narrow. I know it’s hard and it takes effort. But there are a lot of cool and uplifting things going on all around us,…but it’s the ill-mannered buffoons that get the airtime for the most part. The overall feeling to promote in ourselves and our beloved children, is one of gratitude and instead of constantly wondering how can I come out on top? How can I help my fellow man? How can I help make the world a better place? There’s a place for the crap we’re fed on our tv’s…Be entertained, but know that it’s not REAL LIFE. It’s not your real life and truth be told, it’s not really living. Ok, all for now…back to work.

          • I Need A Life! says:

            You’re a smart lady, Lainey. Thank you. Balance. I do practice gratitude and I’ve made sure the family realizes how blessed we are. Odd that someone else in my life told me to read the story and see the movie, Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

        • Powell says:

          Well your kids know you don’t live like those kids families and that you can only do what you can do. None of that “keeping up with the Jones’s”. I remember being a toddler and my mom who was a single mother telling me “This is how much I make. I have to pay this for rent, groceries, etc. I don’t have extra money. But let’s see if we can save up money to do, get XYZ.” I just learned I couldn’t have everything and sometimes it takes time to get extras. I had everything I needed. I had the latest clothes, toys. Kids came to my house to play w/my toys. So it’s just to say once the expectation is set that’s just how it will be. From that sweet 16 show to me those wealthy parents didn’t set the right expectations for the future. If you’re renting a club, buying a Porsche, giving diamonds and hiring a rapper for a 16 yr old party what are you going to do for the 21st BD or the wedding? It doesn’t make sense to me.

    • Powell says:

      I only watched a bit of one epi of Girls last season so I dvrd last and this season. But from what I could tell and from the actress/writer/director it seems to really reflect what’s going on w/that age group. It’s more real than any of the reality stuff we watch.

      • LaineyLainey BTHOC, TRex says:

        My 20something son put season one on his christmas list. I should borrow it from him.

      • I Need A Life! says:

        Powell, that might be why I found it depressing. “It’s more real….” But then I saw that scene with the pole dancer on Beverly Hills and started wondering if our daughters are better off watching “Girls” than these Housewife shows. Better they should watch a girl with a real body and girls with real issues.

    • Orson says:

      “Normal” doesn’t make interesting television. By the time someone reaches 20, they should be able to figure out what they see on tv doesn’t quite match what they’ve seen in their homes and those of their friends.

    • chismosa™ says:

      INAL—I am a fervent watcher of girls and can quote you back lines and such I have watched so much. 
      I have a lot of problems with the show. I thank my lucky stars every day I am not a “millennial” because it’s just a crazy kooky world out there now. 
      I think Lena D is extremely um…..full of herself? She’s quite talented, can write well, etc. but I dont think you can judge by her precious writing how all women that age in that city are living or think they should live. 
      Just like she gets flack for there being NO REALISTIC cultural diversity in the “Brooklyn” of where she’s at. There would be Asians, Hispanics, and blacks galore. (That’s why she had to drop in that black boyfriend last season for about 2 episodes. )

      I wouldn’t get depressed or pensive in a bad way about how they are. The only thing I would think is, so long as your girls have been raised well, have such good support and that’s great that they have eachother also—- they should thrive and be happy in wonderful NYC. 

      Each of those girls on the show have SERIOUS problems and I can write that another day- sorry can’t stick around — but the financial struggles they are in is all I BUY. 
      I watched Lena Dunham on letterman and even he was visibly ….taken aback ? By this super OCD/ oh so smart! Girl ….. 

      I think there can be a happy medium between Girls and sex and the city happy/optimistic realism.  The media has shoved Lena down everyone’s throats and soon other Lenas will come around. It’s hard to avoid her and the show.

      Ps the biggest number of viewers of Girls are Middle aged men. Fun fact. 

      Housewives is an anomaly. I wouldn’t worry about that. 

      • LaineyLainey BTHOC, TRex says:

        I hated Sex and the City. I still don’t like SJP. ugh.

      • I Need A Life! says:

        Chimosa, I’m bored with the superior attitude that Lena D. puts out there. I didn’t even watch the series, and felt it. There was an interview with Howard Stern and he was begging her to forgive him for saying negative things about her. Howard Stern apologize? This I had to watch. I relate to the mom character. We’re in Chicago, so the mom has Midwest vibes. I do have the girls on my “family phone plan.” Laughed at that scene. And yes, I want them off because I want the house on the lake!

        • chismosa™ says:

          I’m glad I’m not the only one who senses her vibe!

          I love her parents and I’m sorry I do think her father is gay! He’s such a great actor. They’ll be back later this season.

          I hope you don’t get too down about anything with that show, it’s certainly not an “upper” of a show !

          I’m sure the mommies here have given you great advice.

          All the best to your girls

    I don’t know why, but I watch Girls. I just watched the first three new epis from this season. I have a daughter, 24, living in Brooklyn, so I think that is partly why I watch. I do like it, but the nudity, sex is hard to take at times. I agree with Powell, it’s more real than reality tv. My daughter watches it too. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go round. This is just one part of the circle.

    Here’s an interesting tidbit I discovered about GIRL SCOUT COOKIES:
    I ordered from my niece and I tell her that I don’t really need the cookies; could she give them away? She said there’s an option on their order sheets to donate them to the troops overseas! Yay!

    • Powell says:

      Well I learned something new. I confess if I get GSC I’m eating them. Doe Si Does and Trefoils. Yum. I used to have the GCS app on my phone to find out where they are in your area. I’ve missed them the last 2 yrs. When I saw them last yr outside my grocery store they were gone when I came out.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        I wish I would have missed them last year. I was in boycott mode and it was so sad telling them no thanks. Especially, since prolly every year since I stopped selling we’d buy a case of do so do’s and thin mints.
        I just could justify buying last year after seeing the video of the GS org. crushing over 13,000 boxes with a back hoe for waste. Those could have been put towards the troops, food banks, shelters, etc. It was one of those ack moments. (Here’s a link:
        Now this year, I can’t find them anywhere yet… Lol

        • TexasTart says:

          My gosh what a waste. At least that appears to be an isolated event with the GSC in Riverside, CA last year.

        • Powell says:

          Pchick when I was typing my comment I kept erasing it thinking, ” do si dos; doe si does”. Hmmm. I eat them but can’t spell them. LOL

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I love these options! Nothing like giving someone far from home a lil taste of it.

      From what I understand, the troops can also select other charities. We have a lil 6 year old, Emily, who is trying to get a box of cookies from every state and had a number I can’t remember the first. Anyways, she is leading the troop in raising cookies for Children’s hospital in Pittsburgh. Her dad passed when she was 18 months (I think he was 23-24) of osteosarcoma. This is her way of honoring him and the hospital that took great care of him. She’s still collecting, so far 2,199 boxes of cookies have been donated from every state. It’s gone international as people from Jamaica, Sweeden, and Germamy have donated. I was confused about where they would go at the hospital, but she plans on donating them to the food pantries on each floor so patients and their families can have a non-hospital snack sent with love.

      Here’s her story:!/

      • TexasTart says:

        Very interesting. I love it when children learn about charity via hands-on experience. 🙂 My niece’s troop is also doing a charity, not cookies, but other items and their time donated to children who are in the Texas Children’s Hospital.

      • Powell says:

        What a great story. Her dad is smiling down on her.

  14. VV™ says:

    Read Kyle’s blog. It is obvious the strategy of “Jelly Team”is to ignore and minimal mention of Lisa. Even when they ignore her, it’s obvious to us viewers.
    #notverybrightgroup #jellyteamispredictable

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      I’m confused with this b/c if they say anything about Lisa they are jealous and if they don’t say anything they are jealous-so basically you are saying that no matter what they do they are just jealous? I don’t see them as being Jelly but I know we will never be on the page with this many more episodes are left? I feel like nothing has really happened yet but we are inspecting everything they say cause big mouth Brandi talked so much crap before the season started!!!

      • VV™ says:

        When they say something about Lisa, it is negative. (Expected)
        They are chosing not to acknowledge her. This is another way of getting after somebody. (Strategy change)

        Bottom line. They have a plan to take Lisa down at Reunion. It is coordinated and was implemented a long time ago.

        • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          Who is the mastermind of this take down? Kim and Brandi? Kyle won’t do it-I know you don’t like Kyle but she’s not going to try to take Lisa DOWN-she might try to point out something that Lisa has done but that’s a reunion not a take down. Brandi will try to be cute but it won’t work and no one listens to nutty Kim.

        • Powell says:

          I know I keep asking you all about the “take down of Lisa” cuz I just don’t get it. So how will they take Lisa down and what is their goal? She’s not getting fired. She’s not losing VPR. She’s the most popular. So what will be accomplished?

      • kit9 says:

        I really enjoyed the last episode and actually laughed out loud a couple of times. Yolanda’s tapping commentary was hilarious. Holy, hell, the preachy Dutch chick actually has a sense of humor? And, Kim and Kyle fighting was also hilarious! As for what’s coming up I recently rewatched the full season preview and some stuff def goes down that’s yet to come.

    • T-Rex says:

      I am not sure about this “take-down”. I do know that in that interview that VileKyle did with Joyce, she was grinning an evil grin, like the cat that swallowed the Queen Canary about something going “down” with Lisa and the line “watch and see”. Joyce was SUPER QUICK to point out she, Joyce, was not a party to whatever that was, that she liked LisaV and that she liked VileKyle. VileKyle shot her a definite “look” at that point, she realized Joyce is not going to go after LisaV at the Reunion, and probably didn’t in Puerto Rico either. I personally think anything involved with MORONSTFUBrandi, is going to BACKFIRE completely, especially if SpaceCadetKim is in on it as well, because those two can’t even come up with a brain between them

    Guess the Dance Mom assault is legit…

    The news (KDKA) just reported that a judge has ordered Abby and Kelly to have no contact, no calls, and no social media interaction. Including tweeting about each other until this is settled.

    I’m gonna go see if I can find an article.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Here’s one:

      One blurb in there:
      “”I have to stand by what believe in,” said Miller, who went on to claim that an unidentified friend’s advice is what secured her decision to press charges against the mom of three. “I said, ‘Do you think I’m doing the right thing?’ And they said, ‘Hey Abby, if you don’t press charges against her the next thing it’s going to be those two kids killed in the car with her. That’s what its going to be.'”

      Miller, who was joined by upcoming “Dance Moms” star Kira Girard, mother to dancer Kalani Hilliker, also gave a dig to Hyland for reportedly having police escorts when exiting the courthouse. “I think men think she’s sexy…I think sometimes men think, ‘Well, she’s a dumb girl so help her out.’ She plays the dumb blonde thing,” said Miller, adding, “I don’t need a man to do my dirty work for me. She does.””

    • Powell says:

      I’ve never watched. I see the promos for this season and just keep saying to myself how do parents take their kids to her? I don’t care how much they win. It’s not worth a young girl’s self-esteem. That lady just seems horrible.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        I think it’s more of a show. I don’t know tho. She reminds me a lot of my baton instructor. She was all sweet but pushy when we were little, but come age 11-12-she wasn’t so nice. If you made our competition team it was near brutal at times. “10 o’clock twirl” was the judges stand/comp team and it was an honor to be in it-but man did we work. We had to beat our rivals. I remember many a days not wanting to go back, but I did. I lasted 13 years there. It was for the best. Lol. I mean baton twirling might not be a usable skill, but it was discipline and learning to accept being fat and having to wear a skimpy uniform. Adults can be cruel. Lesson learned never to comment about people in parades-they can hear you. Lol. At least I can laugh now.

        I’m wondering if this was Abby’s way of getting Kelly off the show. They’re filming either season 4.5 or 5. Kelly’s contract expires after season 6. So they’ll either buy her out of it, or put her background studio hopping in 6.

        • Powell says:

          I wasn’t on the baton team or cheerleader but I had a baton and could twirl that thing like nobody’s business. 🙂

        • Nancy says:

          I think Kelly broke Abby’s heart when she decided on a family instead of dancing.

  21. AZGirl says:

    Good afternoon everyone! Congratulations to Mr. NMD on five years of cancer free. MTH/Jeff said it best up thread. Seems like all of us have been affected by the terrible disease. Good to see some beating the odds.
    Top Chef tonight. Should be interesting.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I feel a Kanye rant coming on… Lol

    • jezzibel says:

      Even eurotrash have standards….and maybe Kayno shouldn’t have pissed and moaned about the heads of several FRENCH fashion houses declining to meet with him!

      • Powell says:

        Funny Jezzibel. Not long after he went on his rant about not buying Louis Vitton the paps caught him w/luggage that was nothing but LV.

      • Hmmm, jezzibel… The *country* of France, which owns the Versailles, is “eurotrash?” Glad you think they have some standards, at least. So as a mere immigrant from one of the Scandinavian countries, I’d rate as something lesser than “eurotrash?”
        Forgive me, but I think that label is tossed around a bit much, and doesn’t always reflect well on the tosser.

        The Versailles is hardly for rent….
        From Wikipedia: >>The Fifth Republic has enthusiastically promoted the museum as one of France’s foremost tourist attractions (Opperman, 2004). The palace, however, still serves political functions. Heads of state are regaled in the Hall of Mirrors; the Sénat and the Assemblée nationale meet in congress in Versailles to revise or otherwise amend the French Constitution, a tradition that came into effect with the promulgation of the 1875 Constitution.[11] Public establishment of the museum and Château de Versailles Spectacles recently organised the Jeff Koons Versailles exhibition.[12]<<

        • chismosa™ says:

          Hi pastbostonian— I’m sure she may not have meant it that way.

          I am dying to go to Scandinavia- it’s on my list -….
          Happiest places to live, always voted as that , best healthcare systems, mothers get like 3-5 years maternity leave …. Oh I could go on… Drooling 😛

          My dad’s euro trash too so I don’t take offense – I to think Americans still look at France with a side eye you know?
          But France is always – legit!- the first country to come down on banning things that the us and FDA decide 10 years later to ban. I LOVE the laws I always hear they come out with there – every day I read a new one and I’m so impressed

          Well just wanted to say hi because I drool for Scandinavia and we can’t knock the happiest places to live 🙂

    • Powell says:

      Well poor them right? Not. I like Kim. Used to like Kanye but he’s got issues and if he doesn’t see it this marriage won’t last. He needs a psychiatrist. This will he Kim’s 3rd marriage. She should want something simple. But it’s his money. He can throw it away. But what ever they do I hope they’re happy. Kanye should be so happy but he looks so miserable to me.

  22. Powell says:

    Captain and Tennille are divorcing after 40 years of marriage. Can you believe it?

    Well, no one can say they didn’t give it a good try!

  24. djprincessc says:

    Hi everyone!! I read most comments from yesterday or I should say skimmed through them, I’ll have to go back. Hope you all who are in the colder states are keeping warm. Here in Socal we definitely have NOT had a fall or a winter so far. Today it was a little cooler 64. We need rain!!

    Chismosa I saw your post my doctors appointment went well yesterday. Thanks for asking! Can you believe she squeezed me in, the appt was at 2:30 and she didn’t see me until 4:30!!! Crazy. But besides that she said my lungs sounded really good but prescribed me a cough syrup and antibiotic in case I have some infection in my lungs, I do have a sinus infection. The antibiotic gave me the hugest migraine so thats part of why I was MIA yesterday and still a little headache today.

    Did anyone else see Shah’s last night??? I couldn’t believe what MJ did to GG or what GG’s sister did. They really love provoking her and then calling her crazy and saying she’s violent. I am sooooo team GG this season, MJ is disgusting and miserable. What a piece of shit, I think she deserves to be alone!

    Who else is excited for American Idol tonight??!?

    • Nancy says:

      Hi dj…I’m glad you got checked out. The flu this year is a nasty one.
      I’m on team GG as well but she should go to anger management for her own sake.

      I’ll be watching AI. 🙂

      • djprincessc says:

        So nasty Nancy, I am glad I went to the doctor, not happy I have to take these antibiotics but at least its only for 4 more days including today 🙂

        GG does need to work her anger issues out, but I do think she’s better this season then last. I just don’t like that they provoke her when they know its a weakness she has.

        I can’t wait for AI tonight! 🙂

    • Powell says:

      Hey DJP. You back 100 %?

    • Powell says:

      And I had a killer migraine yesterday too. It’s just about gone. That’s terrible medicine gave you a migraine. Glad that’s passing.

      • djprincessc says:

        I’d be 100& if I didn’t get the migraine I think, but oh well. I’m gonna take my second dose soon so I hope it doesn’t trigger it again since its only 1 pill today. I saw about your migraine Powell. How do you feel today?? What do you usually do to treat your migraines? I always feel like a bus ran over me the day after a migraine.

    • T-Rex says:

      Watching American Idol, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Harry and Keith together, could care less that Jennifer is there, could be anyone, but they have to keep Harry and Keith, they are MAKING this years show, IMO

      • djprincessc says:

        Leo is def the star of that show now! He really brought it back to life. I like Keith and I am actually a huge Jennifer Lopez fan but I didn’t care for her attitude too much last week. i agree with you Trex, how are you feeling?!?

        • chismosa™ says:

          LEO! Lol!!!!

          DJ glad you are slowly on the mend …..

          Totally team GG ….. I’m so upset with MJ!

          • djprincessc says:

            Chismosa, I came to know him as Leo so to me he will always be LEO!

            The first time I saw him on American Idol I was like what is Leo doing on this show??! And why is he playing the piano?? lol. Then my mom was like thats Harry Connick Jr, he’s a musician! And Im like whatttttt????? NO way! He’s Graces husband! Then thats when I found he he’s a beyond talented musician FIRST then actor. lol.

            Don’t get me started on MJ, DISGUSTING!

            • T-Rex says:

              Since we had seen Harry Connick in New Orleans, YEARS ago, the movie Memphis Belle had just come out and we had seen that, and saw that he was playing a gig in New Orleans, and let me tell you, if you get a change to see him in concert, you MUST go, it was AWESOME. DJ you would be surprised at home many Movie Scores he has also done, the dude is amazeballs. Hollywood week is going to be fun, because I think Harry and Keith are going to be super critical, and that should weed out the singers who really don’t deserve to be there. Even Keith said last night he hopes some of those they let through do the “work”, he said it pissed him off last year that so many never took their advice when they showed up to Hollywood.

  29. T-Rex says:

    Okay, so watched the first episode of Black Sails the Pirate show on Starz and uhm, mmmkay may have to grow on me. I like me some Pirates, we used to attend Gasaparilla in Tampa every year, dressed as pirates(yeah we were pirate geeks), etc. First off, apparently if it’s a series on Starz all women are Bi-sexual and they are going to have at least one or two full on, girl-girl scenes per episode, I think it’s in their contract, UGH! So, with that being said, it’s supposedly following the Robert Louis Stevenson Treasure Island, a pre-quel. So, I am going to give this a chance, of course Mr. T-Rex thinks it’s great so far, yeah, he liked Spartacus(same girl requirements were in that show), too, so will hope it gets better

  30. boston02127 says:

    I just watched BH. I saw part of it the other night but missed the part about Brandi and her family. Brandi is always saying that she speaks the truth, good or bad. When she was on the phone with her mother did her mom say (something like) don’t bring up blah, blah, blah.

    What’s the big secret? What did her mother mean?
    Funny that Brandi can keep her own secrets so quiet.

  31. boston02127 says:

    I read about the Abby Lee gang above. I’m guessing that will be aired on the show.

    Does anyone watch Cheer Perfection? One of the mothers on that show was arrested too.

  33. djprincessc says:

    Ok I have a really random question for all you animal lovers out there. I am not a HUGE animal lover, I love babies and kids. Idk I kinda noticed you are either or. lol. Anyways it doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE animals, I just don’t go crazy over them but I will go crazy over a baby. haha. Anyway, I saw this video on Facebook about how in China they brutalize and torture animals for fur, this isn’t the first time I have seen a video like this and I think they are horrible people and disgusting but my question is WHY DO THEY TORTURE them??? There is no need to torture an animal! If you are a meat eater or whatever why can’t they just shoot them or just cut their heads off super fast?? I know they both still sound horrible but they wouldn’t suffer and be tortured!! I eat meat and believe that we should be able too if we want too, but I 100% don’t agree with them being tortured. Can someone explain this to me???

    • Nancy says:

      And this is the reason I refuse to visit that country.
      They torture them so they have a serge of adrenaline which makes the
      meat taste better occurring to them. I have dreams at night doing the exact
      same thing to them and I wake up with a smile on my face.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Nancy I’m going to throw up now.

        I don’t want to give Chinese restaurants or ANYTHING of China any love !

        my mind is blown 😈😈😈

      • djprincessc says:

        Ok so the reason why animals are tortured is bc they taste better?!? Then what about for fur?!? I just wish they wouldn’t torture them. It broke my heart 😦

    • Pghemtchick says:

      As a rabbit momma, every time I see Angora my right eye has that lil seizure thing that happens before going postal. I know hypocritical of me as I am a meat eater and wear leather I suspect in my shoes. I just can’t bare to see rabbits coupes up in dirty small cages with no toys half shaved and bleeding from how hard they were shaved. Only to know the next time that wool/fur grows in (if they don’t get infected and die) it’s going to happen again. Fur in this case is torture. (My opinion only)

      • Nancy says:

        They will get theirs IMHO. Have you ever tried giving up meat?

        • chismosa™ says:

          It doesn’t happen Nancy. Nasty people continue to live and thrive.
          China is taking over…. Blah blah blah

          It’s depressing

          • djprincessc says:

            But don’t they torture animals here in the USA too?? I’ve seen other videos before but idk or don’t remember if they were from out of the country.

          • Nancy says:

            I disagree. IMHO people that do that kind of stuff have no spiritual connection
            to anything so they are leading a fake life.

            • chismosa™ says:

              They live a life is what I’m saying — they’re not getting 1/1000000000th of what they deserve is what I mean!

        • Pghemtchick says:

          I have it the “college” try. I ended up with my inner circle of friends who were “vegan” and vegetarian. I lasted awhile. Then I got really anemic and sick, so I went back to meat. We have been working more veg nights into our week, I will say it was a lot easier to add more veggie dishes after starting gardening and canning. There’s just something so rewarding about it.

          I put vegan in quotes above because it was a running joke. The girl is now really vegan; however, pulling out her leather wallet at a PETA convention has a bit to do with that. She also openly ate gelatin. It was a scoffing moment when she lectured then downed something with gelatin. Anyways, we were horrid and would feed her cheese pierogies when she was drunk. She’d wake up so ill. It was funny back then tho. Lol.

      • djprincessc says:

        Exactly!! Thats what I am asking though!! Why do they have to be treated so badly?? I saw the animals in cages and they threw the cage from off the top of a truck and the poor animals broke bones and were bleeding. There is no need for the brutality. One shot or guillatine (like I said I know still sounds bad) and it would be over so fast that they wouldn’t suffer. There is no need to skin them alive!! I hate it!!

    • chismosa™ says:

      DJ – I’m super into animals – moreso dogs – and animals that are known and scientifically studied-verified to be super smart and emotional (elephants are my #1 with dogs, then dolphins/whales, then pigs, etc. apes, gorillas and all those don’t count because WE CAME FROM them so obviously they are like us.)

      That said I can’t go vegetarian, I’m type O blood and it’s very difficult for us and it’s true I can’t live without animal protein.

      I love babies and kids to death and they’ve always gravitated to me. I think animals “sense” and so do young kids.

      However animals depend on US to survive whereas kids have families and other humans naturally taking care of them (sans deviant terrible places, poor countries, war-torn areas, etc)
      So to me, animals NEED us more than we take responsibility for and we are arrogant a$$hole humans abusing the earth and it’s ok – our 6 generations from now kids will feel the sting. So kudos to us! Go people!

      I can’t believe this about China – I can’t listen to a commercial or a news item about animals let alone watch videos.
      I’m seriously going to throw up. The Chinese are disgusting disgusting people. They also eat dog as a delicacy – and are the primary importers of illegally and horribly obtained ivory from elephants. I can’t even type that out without getting teary
      I wish like Nancy said they would get their come uppance but I just don’t know.
      There’s not enough karma in the world and jerks and deviants thrive while the good guys trudge through. It’s sad 😦

      I hate humans! Rant over !

        We almost got a divorce over China. George speaks Chinese and loves many

        learned that they are still eating dogs over there and that was the deal breaker for me.
        Here we were going to bring a CHINESE pug to China where they eat dogs!!!
        I don’t think so.

        chismosa…have you ever talked to a dietitian re: a vegetarian diet?
        You would feel so much better physically and emotionally. (IMHO)

          No I feel better and stronger with true animal protein in my body. I’m a typical blood type O. We need it. Vegetarianism doesn’t work with us.

          In my next life I guess.

          My half cousin ate dog in Korea. As part of the service placement with families on holidays, they were instructed to eat whatever was placed in front of them and not to disrespect the family.

          Sadly, I know a whale eater. I love Sea Sheperd (maybe not as much as Namcy tho 🙂 ) but when they sent the fleet back early after the quake, my college/drinking buddy, was a recipient of the whale meat. If he was to purchase it via wholesale, I would never forgive him. Actually, we haven’t talked nearly as much since then as I find it really hard to comprehend it. On one hand, I understand that after the reactor went, he was forced into an over crowded shelter. His house was in the hot zone and destroyed. At the shelter they had limited electricity and I was able to phone Skype with him. It was awful. They survived on a bowl of rice and an orange a day. So I could see how any protein choice would be ideal in his case. I don’t think I would have made that decision, but I wasn’t in that situation. On the other hand, really whale? I wanna kick him in the nuts. It’s such a rock vs hard place.

    Andy Cohen was on The Today Show from 9-10 this morning w/Natalie Morales. I guess he was sitting in for who’s usually there. Did y’all know he adopted a cute 1 yr old Beagles? He showed a pic.
    Well have a great day.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Hi Powell yeah he talks about his dog all the time when he never struck me as a dog person before.

      I don’t think anyone does not adopt/ rescue anymore. You’d be ridiculed for it if you did. Only a true a$$hole would walk into a pet store to buy a dog and to go via a breeder is a little wack right now. Must get shelter dog!
      I just hope he truly walks the walk. He seems to love showing this off …..

      That said, his dog is cute

      • ladebra says:

        He seems to really adore his puppy. I’ve seen several pics on twitter of him walking with the dog. I love beagles! and Wakka (not sure how you spell his dog’s name) is a real cutie pie.

        • chismosa™ says:

          I’m totally TOTES down with the beagle – especially as they are still used in science experiments— (his looks a bit mixed to me…)
          It’s just Andy I look at sideways.

          Mama Elsa said – ……….lol

          If I were Andy I would have had two or 3 dogs years ago

          • BB says:

            It’s probably not as easy to own a pet if you live in a high rise in the city I would think. I’m guess I’m spoiled as I just have to open my back door to let my dogs outside to do their business and get exercise. We go for walks, but it’s not a daily requirement.

          • T-Rex says:

            I LOVE Beagles too! One of my dogs is a pure Bred Beagle that was cross bred with a full blood Pomeranian, we didn’t do this, when we got him from the rescue he had “papers” that is was a Pomeagle. He looks like a baby golden retriever, and acts EXACTLY like a Beagle! He howls, no barking really, and he climbs and jumps like they do, and it’s so funny when he goes to the dog park, he goes right over to any fellow beagle to say HI!

  39. TexasTart says:

    AH HA! I’m sorry, I can not help myself, I thought he was a punk all along and frankly I’m tired of reading about his problems and his Sizzurp addition and knowing all along these entiled entertainers never get anything but a slap on the wrist and can do whatever the hell they want. Like the Lindsay Lohan 1 day in jail plan. We’ll see.

    • AZGirl says:

      Well..well…well ok Momzy lets step in and get your spoiled kid some help. He is very lucky he did not kill himself or anyone else. Of course in 5 years he will be broke and in rehab for the 10th time.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Oh mommy steps in now.


    • TexasTart says:

      Note to Brandi: This is what happens to your life when you aspire to be a gangsta.

    • T-Rex says:

      Personally, I think he has been trying to get arrested for quite some time now, get himself some “street cred”, to lose his baby image, JMO. Britney did, the Lohan did it, personally I think this is the worst way to lose your teeny bopper image, but guaranteed some loser agent told him to do something like this.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Can Bieber go away now that is has his street cred? And take his friends/enablers with him.

        • T-Rex says:

          HH, well since he only rated a bond of $2500.00, not sure this will be enough “cred” for him, so unfortunately he will do something even dumber than this, let’s just hope he doesn’t injure anyone other than himself. I don’t get why folks are telling these youngsters to make a name for themselves by trying to be “billy bad ass”! Justin Timberlake didn’t do this crap, and of course the SUPER kid start that made it big, Ron Howard, didn’t have to do anything stupid to become a successful adult.

          • kit9 says:

            lol! He spent more than that on lap dances last night!

          • TexasTart says:

            There was a live feed of his court appearance….I did not watch, but T-Rex, what is the deal with Florida courts and live coverage?

            Guess who showed up in court to represent him? Go ahead folks, Miami Beach…..

            ROY BLACK!

            I also read that his Dad, Jeremy Bieber was partying with him all day and was on the scene as one of the people that blocked the street for the drag race. Though, I’d hardly call it a drag race at 60mph, but I guess that is fast enough if you’re wasted. Thankfully no one was hurt.

            • T-Rex says:

              All criminal courts in Florida are LIVE and online for your viewing pleasure! When the courts deemed years ago that they would allow cameras into the courtrooms, the Florida court system said, COME ON DOWN and place your cameras here! The only closed courts are the Family courts, and SOME civil courts, but Criminal Courts are open and on TV. I am pretty sure the state gets some kind of shake-down money for the live feeds. Oh and you get your 15 minutes whether you are guilty or not

              • TexasTart says:

                Interesting. So it could be a money-maker for the state and serve as a deterrent against crime.

        • AZGirl says:

          Radaronline Latest!!!!! Bieber’s father help set up the drag race. His father is only 38 years old. This kid is so screwed.

    • Lulu Team T-Rex!!!!!!!!!!!! says:

      I don’t like him at all. After the video of him spitting on that girl a fan!!! He’s a disgusting entitled brat.

      • kit9 says:

        This kind of behavior is what makes Beiber really detestable in a way that eclipses other out of control famous 20 somethings. The peeing in the work bucket that some very unlucky guy is going to have to deal with… having his bodyguards CARRY him up on the wall of China. He’s just such a massive d-bag. Can we have him sent back to Canada? Any legal grounds for that? lol

        • iceNfire says:

          My thought too! Remember when Tom Green did pranks for his tv show and had to run and hide from police b/c he was in danger of being deported back to Canada? Those were just pranks, this kid is endangering lives. Get him outta here ASAP

    • kit9 says:

      He hired Roy Black as his attorney!

      The stories at first sounded very outlandish to me

      But now the pictures of his long nails ?
      It’s growing increasingly WEIRD 😱

    • BB says:

      He will not be a pretty one, but whatever makes him happy. I wonder what took him so long to decide to do it.

    • T-Rex says:

      Guess which online website that gets almost EVERYTHING wrong is the source for this tidbit of information, anyone, anyone, why yes, it’s one RadarOnLiarLiarPantsOnFire(allegedly). I did read three other sources that said this is completely untrue and that someone fed this to ROLLPOF(allegedly) to boost the ratings for their stupid show.

      • BB says:

        It’s probably a ratings ploy but this isn’t the first time there’s been an article printed about this. Whether true or not, he’s always seemed a little weird to me.

        • T-Rex says:

          Of course it’s a ploy this family takes MEDIA-WHORING

        • T-Rex says:

          Had to repost my puter posted it too early!

          Of course it’s a ploy, this family takes MEDIA-WHORING to the UMPTEENTH LEVEL, there is no LOW that they can’t go, just when you think WOW can’t get any lower, they say watch this and lower that taste bar further into the ground. UGH!! I wish people would just stop watching them! But alas, to each his own. I guess.

    • TexasTart says:

      He had a surgical procedure to decrease the size of his adam’s apple, which spawned rumors of a sex change, as that is a typical surgery proceedure for a man changing to a woman. I choose to believe he’s not changing to a woman, but that he has the same issues, like Brandi does with her body. The obsession that something isn’t right and the desire to change it. What was that called? There is a named psychological disorder for it. Bruce’s face as gradually morphed like Michael Jackson, there just hasn’t be a skin color change. The crazy part about these three people is all of them were good looking to start with!

      • BB says:

        body dysmorphic disorder

      • Nancy says:

        Are you thinking of Body Dysmorphic Disorder?

        I blame Kris for all of Bruce’s facelifts. He did whatever she wanted as he
        didn’t really have a choice. I’m so happy for him now that he’s away from her and
        her craziness. Unfortunately she still is the mother of his two daughters.

  41. not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

    • T-Rex says:

      Oh we ridin’ on the bipolar express, oh we’re ridin’ on the bipolar express as we read about her mess!(sung to Marrakesh express). So for WEEKS we have been hearing about how MsVPump mothers her so much, I think smothered was a word used at some point. and now it’s she doesn’t care, it’s for the cameras. OMG. I think MORONSTFUBrandi should have to breath into a breathalizer before she is allowed to post to Twatter, because I think she is SO drunk at times, she forgets what she has written.

      • Powell says:

        HAAAAAA!!!!!!! T-Rex as I was reading your comment I was thinking just what you said. Maybe she needs a breathalyzer before she tweets. LOL. 🙂

    • TexasTart says:

      She is such a liar. It was LISA that took her to the hospital last summer when she thought she was dying. Lisa came first to help her look for Chica and no cameras for that either. What an ungrateful bitch.

      • kit9 says:

        I think that whole hospital thing was a publicity stunt. Didn’t buy at the time and don’t now. Brandi was actually live tweeting as it happened.

        • TexasTart says:

          Very likely, as she had all her twitter followers wondering what was going on, but I don’t remember there ever being a statement made as to why she was deathly ill. Maybe she did, I quit following her after one of these events…the first fake disappearance of the dog, the fake intruder, and a fake illness, the fake broken hand, I have no idea what to believe but last summer is was cry wolf central. That is when I began to dislike her.

    • kit9 says:

      Man, I can’t wait for the reunion! Watching these two go at will be so much fun.

      • T-Rex says:

        To be honest, I would bet that MORONSTFUBrandi is at the END of a couch this Reunion! I think Bravo is PLENTY PEEVED at her behaviour of late, and my guess part of that penance is to be relegated to the end of the couch. JMO though.

      • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        I can’t wait for the reunion either-it’s going to be Brandi vs Joyce and Brandi vs Lisa with a little Kyle vs Carlton thrown in…Brandi going to start out ready to “cut a bitch” but then when Lisa uses her words and Brandi doesn’t know what she’s talking about Brandi will cry and tell us what a terrible year she had b/c her dad didn’t like her Oscar dress…and the Lisa will sit back with a shit eating grin on her face b/c she will know that the viewers (not all but plenty) are over Brandi’s victim act . Brandi will think that Kyle is on her side but at the reunions Kyle just wants to get the hell out of there and still have a job-her attempts to set anything straight are always sidelined by someone bringing up Mauricio selling a house(or cheating this time) …blah blah blah same crap every season…now I’m questioning why I can’t wait for the reunion???????

        • Nancy says:

          The wild card will be Yolanda. Should be interesting.

          • It is just me or Yolanda was backpedalling on Brandi this week’s Blog?

            About Lisa Mothering Brandi, haven’t we listening from the beginning of the Season Yolanda telling Lisa she is not Brandi’s mother?

            Which is it? Just for the cameras or Lisa was mothering Brandi to the point she needed a Yolanda intervention?

            Me thinks it is just about Lisa being closed to Sheena (whatever is her name).

            • T-Rex says:

              My take on YOLO-LemonHead is that she is going to be one to say it’s MORONSTFUBrandi’s life, she can do what she wants, she shouldn’t say some things, she is just “depressed, had a bad year, didn’t realize what she did, she was really drunk at the time, “. and will say that LisaV either abandoned her friend or over-mothered her friend, because right now either seems it will work since everyone is talking out both sides of their mouths on the subject. I agree with JillNNTj, all Lisa is going to have to do is just sit there as they all lob jabs at each other and justify their behaviour. Said it once, will say it again, this is going to go down badly for the MORONSTFUBrandi, SpaceCadetKim and probably VileKyle. Again, on that Hollywood LIfe interview with Joyce and VileKyle, when Joyce said that she wasn’t going to say ANYTHING about LisaV, she liked her and they are friends the LOOK on VileKyle’s face was priceless, she was like “oh shit”.

              • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                Since I like Kyle I have a totally different take on that interview with her and Joyce-Kyle will not go after Lisa at the reunion except to say she should not brought up the cheating rumors-Lisa will reply with a cheeky answer that leaves people thinking Mauricio did cheat and then later she will say he didn’t. Last year at the reunion she said Kyle was friends with her so Mauricio could sell her house but when Kim asked her the same question Lisa replied that she didn’t really think that-it was too late-everyone thought she meant it and that’s kind of the point in saying it. Lisa knows the reunion game better than all of them and Kyle is well aware of that-she won’t back Brandi but she won’t cross Brandi either.

      To Brandi. Why would SHE care after the way you have treated her. Be lucky SHE cares while the camera,is on, she could just ignore you which is what I’d do to you .

    • kit9 says:

      Yep. It’s done. Should have sent it yesterday–it was super long and had to edit it…but got sidelined. Or should I just post it here since it looks like there might not be new post today

  43. SCGirl says:

    Hi Everyone!
    Haven’t read all the posts yet, so someone may have aleady posted that Leah Black’s husband is Justin Bieber’s attoney for all the trouble he got into last night. Found it interesting and thought I would share.

  44. AZGirl says:

    Hilarious!!!! Laughing out loud in the office and Mr. AZGirl is asking “you working”? No. I am freaking cracking up.

    • Powell says:

      Well he’s smiling w/his orange shirt on. No wonder you’re laughing and not working. 🙂 And his skin isn’t as perfect as Wendy Williams was talking about a few weeks ago. Didn’t he do a Proactive commercial yrs ago?

      • AZGirl says:

        I noticed the acne also. That is what late night partying and drugs will do. But then again he is only 19!!!!! Hell I have china older than that.

  45. Who the F cares about Bieber? He’s been on a cracked rail for months now. I hate watching a train wreck, but it’s hard to turn away when you just want to see what might derail and how it spills its contents. Sorry DH is an engineer on the railroad, so I liken things to a train wreck.
    We watched Lilo take a dive, Miley jump on a wrecking ball rampage and Britney was their leader after she shaved her head and melted down. Many young singers/actors struggle to live past their “cute kid” persona. Donny Osmond survived being a teen idol, but Michael Jackson couldn’t live a normal enough life after the Jackson 5 fizzled out.
    Plus I’m pissed that someone my grand daughter looks up to throws their sweet person persona away just to be taken seriously as an adult.
    I’m with everyone else about RHOBH reunion I see it as being a fight-fest. Forget the teams this will be a free for all. No one will escape unhurt. My prediction anyway. I hope Brandi, Carlton and Kim go away. BORING, BITCHY and DESPERATE.

    • TexasTart says:

      Hi Diana, you’re probably right about the reunion will be a free for all.

      I don’t think anyone cares about Bieber but the young people who idolized him and made him famous and wealthy beyond his intellegence. Not that the young people or parents did anything wrong, to buy into his music/movie, but this is the sad part when artists gain a huge following as children and their life falls apart in a very public manner.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      I am rather enjoying watching this particular train wreck.. I know that makes me some sort of heartless asshole but I hope they make an example of that brat.

  49. Powell says:

    I’m watching The Kardashian’s. I think it’s epi 1 of the new season. Bruce told Kris he wanted to stay at the Malibu house he rented last season. That they were much happier living at different houses. Then he tells the two youngest daughters the plain. He’s tired of getting up every morning and being told what to wear, how to do things. He also said six people were living at the house and there’s no place for him. Kim and Kanye w/baby, Khloe stays because of her problems w/Lamar. Kim & Kanye’s cars, baby strollers, nannies etc. So this all leads to that excessive plastic surgery. Kris is the one that’s been telling him over the yrs that he needed to have this, that and the other fixed. Yeah it’s tv, blah, blah, blah. But if you’ve watched over the yrs Bruce has been discounted by Kris. She took over their house. Everything is her way. But Bruce let it be that way. She could only do what he let her do.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      He reaps what he sews… This family has been famewhore trash since that whore Kimmie leaked her sex tape. He should have packed his shit and ran then.

      • Powell says:

        No he should have been the father/husband/head of the household of the family and made decisions as to the way things would be but he let Kris run the family as a business instead of a family.

  52. Anne says:

    I just realized that Carole and Brandi’s books will be released on the same day (February 11th). They have different publishers. On Kindle, Carole’s book is cheaper and also longer. I didn’t check the hard cover pricing. I read Carole’s memoir, which I found very well written and interesting and am going to read her new book, although I will probably get it through Paperback Swap or wait for a sale.

    I didn’t read Brandi’s first book and have no plans to read the second/ It will be interesting to see which one ends up on the NYTimes list as a best seller.

    (BTW, there is an audio book excerpt of the first chapter of Brandi’s new book floating around which is pretty entertaining from a snark perspective.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I still don’t get how her book was finished enough last season and with edits and jacket-making, etc – how it took so long. Ny was on ages ago! 
      She had enough of a book to make a sitcom outline because remember she was celebrating selling a pilot idea based on her book ? 
      (I worked in pub so I know this is way too long) 

      Enjoy the book regardless !

    If anyone watched tonite, I found it interesting that Keith told the one girl playing the guitar that he thought her shoulder movement while strumming was a good thing. Personally, that’s the one thing that gets on my nerves watching Keith Urban perform. He has this hitch to his shoulder when he strums that is totally orchestrated imho. Turns out, it is. Loving the show this season.

  58. djprincessc says:

    I know that I am going to be the minority here, but while I DON’T feel sorry for Justin Bieber, I do have sympathy for him and here is why:

    He basically was forced to work at what?? 11 years old, became super super successful and doesn’t know any different. He’s experienced and seen things that none of us will probably ever see and experience. He’s never had structure or discipline. His parents obviously have just used him, and won’t help him and the people around him who work for him are just that, they WORK for him. He doesn’t know what normal is. He’s never been told no, and he’s 19 years old. I can’t imagine having the life he’s had and not being able to make mistakes without it being on front page. People forget that they too were young once and he’s no different except he’s famous so its magnified times 100. I have an 18 year old cousin who’s a bigger mess than Justin Bieber and has no regard for law or respect and has been arrested quite a few times for alcohol and drugs. I could go on and on about how much trouble she’s been in, but the difference is that because she’s not a SUPERSTAR or beyond wealthy nobody cares what she does.

    Bottom line for me is that he’s soooooo famous and I just don’t think that we as humans were created to be worshipped and put on a pedestal that high. The pressure is not normal. So no I don’t think he’s a piece of shit and no I don’t hate him and I don’t think he deserves anything bad because he really was never taught. Why would he think he needs to change when nobody really taught him how to be a good person??

    I hope he wakes up or someone who actually cares about him takes over, he gets help and gets back on track.

    Just my 2 cents.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      When he tells a cop to google him and that the laws don’t apply to him, it’s hard to even feel sympathy for that shithead… Very arrogant, very stupid, or both.

      • djprincessc says:

        I’m not excusing him at all, but how does one act when they are THAT famous? I know that of course you can be humble and nice but I think the majority of people would NOT be humble but think they are they shit when all you ever hear is yes. I think he’s both Mel.

              Ok that wasn’t um— “backdoor” —- but yes, how it ‘began’…..I get what you mean.
              That girl would have jumped out the building if he did that!

              Depraved and stuff yes, that was a very tough episode.
              It just showed that he and hannah were meant to be together. She loved and let him do that stuff, etc blah blah blah

            I would seriously need a life if I paid to see her. It’s free. Just punch her name and there you go.

              I didn’t know that! And the guy she was with (James dean?) – was in a movie with Lindsay Lohan —
              Wow I’m shocked it’s free!

              Ok see you all later !
              🙊🙊🙊🙊 ha!

          It isn’t that she’s a ‘whore’ unless you mean famewhore, it’s that she made this ‘sex tape’ with someone who makes his living doing these videos and selling them. She didn’t have to agree to and get paid to release it for public consumption, but it is believed that a ‘porn’ is what she set out to do (I believe that too).

          • T-Rex says:

            Yep, it’s a WAY different situation to do an amateur sex tape that gets leaked, what Farrah did was a PORN VIDEO. There were director’s, professional video equipment, etc. I don’t know why she is trying to lie about this. You did a Porno, you got paid to do a Porno, just freakin’ own it, and move on.

      Wait —- of the Bethenny talk show? Or of bravo?

      I hope it’s all the episodes with her emasculating Jason! Yay

    I remember when this happened and reading that Lisa rode with her in the ambulance and Ken followed them. Brandi is a lier and manipulator. She does not want to give credit to Lisa for being there with her so she implies by omission what happened.
    Brandi is a lier. Just like she implied HRC apologized to her. She twist things at will.
    The Richards sisters are foolish to be afraid of her or even worst trust her. Very big mistake that will turn costly.

    Good morning. Watching GMA talking about Bieber and they showed a tape of Roy Black telling the media hopefully the case will go like any other case. Dan Abrams is saying since they’re misdemeanor charges he probably won’t serve any time but the big thing is if incident keep piling up. Some 18/19 yr old model was in the car w/Justin when he was drunk drag racing. Now wouldn’t you think she’d have brains enough to realize she was endangering her own life and career if he’d been in a car accident? Just stupid.

    Good Morning. 25 here and had freezing rain overnight. Oh joy, the city shuts down (sarcasm) but good news, it will be above freezing and no more precipitation. Will probably be 70 tomorrow. 🙂 Meanwhile I walk dogs on a leash so they don’t fall and the 3 year old dog is perplexed as to why the ground is this way and I won’t let her go where she wants.
