Brandi Glanville

Honestly, just reading Brandi’s blog makes my brain hurt.  First she tells us that she and her dad are a lot alike and that they both “have tempers and are very feisty.”  A breath later, she contradicts herself by telling us that her dad overthinks everything and that she doesn’t think about things enough. Whoa, Captain Understatement!

Brandi blogs, “This year my dad came down with a very serious heart condition. He had heart surgery in the past, and his heart now seem to be relapsing to the point he would need surgery again. He couldn’t even walk across a room with getting out of breath. For my dad, who is a very active person, this was very depressing.”

Having a debilitating illness can be very depressing.  Having a daughter who is downright embarrassing can also be very depressing.

Brandi writes, “My book came out, and originally my dad loved it and was very proud. But once his health started to fail, we had an argument about my Oscar dress and stopped talking — and not just for a few days this time but for almost five months. I tried my hardest to make up with him to no avail, and I felt very alone.”

Wow… So you’re REALLY sticking with the story that for all these months your dad hasn’t talked to you over an Oscar dress?  While it was a really bad fashion choice – You’ve worn much worse.  I mean, it’s not like he’s the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences or anything.  I also don’t think you owed us an explanation as to why you weren’t on speaking terms with your dad.  It’s none of our business.  Sure, we all WANT to know because you keep bringing it up on the show and now you’ve used it as an actual storyline – but it should have been kept private, like so much of the stuff you say and write.  Way to exploit your dad and his illness on the show, Brandi!

Brandi blogs, “My dad is the only man in my life that I’ve always been able to count on and now he was gone. I was sad. And then Chica went missing and I fell into an even darker place. When my kids would leave to go to their dad’s, I felt that sadness I felt during my divorce creeping back up on me. I definitely leaned on the neck of a bottle of wine or two when I was feeling lost and alone.”

It is tough to be estranged from a loved one – Especially when they’re declining.  Brandi – Your dad’s  not actually gone… gone – You’re lucky enough to still have him alive so perhaps it would have been more prudent to move heaven and earth to repair your relationship with your dad instead of waiting until it became a convenient storyline.  However, in all fairness to you, it also must be really tough to only be around your kids 50% of the time – That’s gotta really suck. People often lean on various mechanisms in a vain attempt to lessen their pain and sadness – But pain is a bitch and will only be dulled for so long before it again rears its grotesque head.  You can only keep drunk or anesthetized so long before “reality” slams you right in the face.

Brandi continues, “Family is everything to me, and when we are not OK, I am not OK. Thank God I’m back on my happy pill and in a much better place now.”

Yeah, well… recent events suggest that you’re actually not in a much better place. Brandi goes on to tell us that she was nervous about going to Sacramento because she felt that if she made one wrong move that things between she and her dad would be irreparable.  She was afraid something would come up during the book signing that would make her dad get up and leave.  Brandi writes, “Luckily Yolanda was able to work her magic and charm my dad into giving me a chance to make up with him.”   It was really hard to determine if your dad was indeed charmed by Yolanda or by the camera stuck in his face and the fact that you set him up to look like a schmuck if he didn’t make up with you.  Perhaps that’s the last option you felt you had – I dunno.  Perhaps he knowingly signed on to all of this and went along for the ride.  It just didn’t sit well with me for some reason.  Brandi tells us that her new dog, “Buddy” has grown on her and, “is now very loved.”  Fortunately, she’s using a dog trainer to deal with some normal dog issues.  I suggest a liberal use of a muzzle…. No, not on the dog, Brandi – On you!

Brandi blogs, “It is very scary that Joyce and her husband had to deal with possible home invaders in their driveway, and I’m glad they were scared off. For me personally, having two little boys in my home that are at the age where guns are in video games and in cartoons (like Star Wars among others) that kind of glorify guns violence, I would not feel safe having a gun in my home. I do have cameras, an alarm, pepper spray, and I sleep with giant kitchen knives under my bed. I’m just too afraid of an accident happening with my children to keep a firearm in my home.”

We quickly get into the #notaslambutreallyisaslamagainstJoyce judgy portion of our programming. Brandi, I completely understand you not wanting to have guns your home because of your kids and I applaud you for it.  But I also think there’s a lot of cartoony stuff around about knives… and now you have placed some honkin’ sharp knives at child-level on the floor. I dunno… how can you best protect your kids and yourself from this kind of clear and present danger?  It’s a tough call.  Back in the day, when our parents told us not to touch something – We knew not to touch it under penalty of certain death until morning.  We had guns and knives in our house but I just never touched them cuz quite frankly, I didn’t want to die – Not from the guns or knives themselves but at the hands of my parents.  My brother had a BB gun and had strict instructions on its use.   Certainly there’s a better answer to this whole situation than having to resort to sleeping with giant knives under the same bed in which you sleep with your children, no?  Perhaps you need a lightsaber – But since you just dissed Star Wars – When the real lightsabers become available you won’t be eligible to have one… It’s in the official rulebook and personally, I find your lack of faith disturbing (Sorry, obscure Star Wars reference.) Brandi then talks about how she grew up in a “rough neighborhood.” She and her siblings were involved in many physical altercations and Brandi was involved in 2 fights in high school.  I wonder if Brandi’s parents slept with knives under their bed?

Brandi writes, “My parents always said that we weren’t allowed to start fights — but we sure as hell better finish them, otherwise don’t come crying to them. The three of us are pretty tough kids, so these Beverly Hills women really don’t scare me at all (except for maybe Carlton).”

Wha…what?  Does this sound like Brandi’s “hippy dippy” parents we’re supposed to believe she had?   Sighs… sometimes I stupidly try to make sense out of the nonsensical…lol.  I think Brandi is trying to take, “How to pretend like you’re a badass” lessons from Carlton.  Talk about being a badass – It was Kim who was the one that got all wild-eyed when she was fighting Kyle, if you ask me… Not to mention “Yolanda” who like… well… almost actually killed the guy in the training ring… lol.  Brandi talks about how the self-defense coach told her she could hit him as hard as she could in the face.  She blames hurting herself on the fact that she didn’t tape her hands before putting on the gloves – and that she knows better than to do that.  She went to punch him and he put his head down so she hit the top of it and that’s how she broke her hand.

Of the incident, Brandi blogs, “I knew it was broken the second it happened, but tried not to be a sissy about it and just jumped out of the ring.”

Of course you had to leave the ring – you broke your hand.  Ouchie!

Brandi blogs, “I don’t like to show vulnerability because when I have in the past I have been let down. Basically I don’t ask for help because I’m afraid no one will help me. I know that Lisa cares about me, but sometimes when she is constantly pointing out the things I’ve done wrong or the things she wants me to do her way I feel like its more so she can say I told you so and be right.”

In this case, Brandi, you broke your hand.  Lisa saw the visible swelling and reacted like any of us would – and that is to brainstorm solutions to the issue.  Going to the doctor was an obvious necessity and not discretionary or needless “Momming” by Lisa.  After all, you broke your freakin’ hand!  Now you’re somehow blaming your own obstinance on Lisa?   It seems disingenuous to me that within 2 sentences you bellyache about being afraid no one will help you and then say you’re tired of Lisa trying to help you.  I have no idea what Lisa’s motives are… But the real problem is that you give her and everyone else so many issues to point out as being not so great in your life… Perhaps you need to take a look at that…

Brandi goes on to say that she and Kyle’s relationship has been slowly improving and that it was sweet of Kyle to give her the card in the limo.  While I love that Kyle gave her a card, I find it odd that it was included as part of the filming of the show.  Plus, Kyle handed the card to Brandi by physically reaching right over Lisa – Kind of like Kyle’s purposefully trying to make Lisa jealous of Kyle and Brandi’s newly-close relationship or something. It kind of cracked me up because Kyle, Lisa’s just not that into you.  However, I do have to say it’s way too much fun for words when Lisa and Kyle banter back and forth and have some real fun.

Brandi also tells us how Kyle has offered Brandi that she can drop her kids off at Kyle’s house when they have events when her babysitter cancelled. Brandi writes, “To me that is a huge deal and I am starting to see Kyle in a different light. It’s funny when Kyle and Lisa get together I feel like there is a bit of a competition for who is top dog of our group. There are a lot of strong personalities in our group, and no one is better than anyone so I don’t quite get the competition… (I learn to understand it but that comes later in the season.)”

Oh, if there was ever a competition it’s over, Brandi, and the queen has been crowned.  By the way, she’s the one wearing a sparkly pink diamond studded crown.

Carlton Gebbia

Carlton starts off her blog by telling us, “there’s nothing worse than a dull party” and she and her husband try to not, “inflict that kind of boring pain.”

Carlton blogs, “My gorgeous friend Lanny made a recommendation — and in walked Diana Diaz! I swear I heard the angels sing! Could not believe how beautiful and talented she was — and her insane core strength. When I think of pole dancing, I don’t think of sashaying around the pole. If it’s done right it’s a true art form that is inspiring. Anyone can spin around a pole, even me, but Diana is the real deal. She’s a trained dancer and was a pole aerialist with Cirque du Soleil in Vegas and that’s the kind of quality I wanted for our party. David and I were in Vegas this weekend at a club called Surrender in the Wynn Hotel and saw the same type of pole dancers literally holding themselves up with one bloody hand with their bodies extended horizontally. It was truly amazing!!!”

Dear Bravo, if I see one more pole dancing scene involving Carlton you’re gonna hafta buy  me a new TV because I will have thrown something through it.  Oh, and you can also pay for the Pepto Bismol. I’m also tired of Carlton lasciviously looking at every woman like she’s a bacon double cheeseburger that she’s going to pounce on and devour at her earliest opportunity.  I wonder how Carlton’s lewd and obvious worship of females makes her husband feel?  He is a better man than I is all I can say… Cuz well, after all he is actually a man and stuff… lol.

Carlton blogs, “As far as the gun scene: Waiving your personally loaded gun around like a hairbrush speaks volumes. Oh Tom, the pistol range manager, did not look happy with you as you repeatedly pointed it at him. You should honestly stick to baseball bats. There is such a thing about having respect for a gun and not thinking that you’re in your own bad action movie. Guns are not a joke.”

Guns are not a joke.  Joyce was extremely careless with it in the beginning… like umm… so many other people – Ask any weapons trainer.

Carlton writes, “It’s lovely seeing families embracing their religious traditions. It reminded me of David’s grandmother Edith, who was a Russian Jew. She has now since passed, but she loved her celebrations. Every religion seems to have such interesting and unique ways of honoring, and every religion has something beautiful and positive to offer spiritually. No matter what your religious or spiritual beliefs are, one should never be judged based upon that.”

Right, unless someone has the audacity to innocently ask if you were raised in the Catholic faith or something equally heinous… If that happens, then by all means judge the “hell” outta them, right Carlton?

Carlton blogs about their training session with Lars, and says, “I think the highlight was watching Lisa having such a fun time, she looked amazing as she snuck in a jab at Lars. And then Brandi who had some really hard punches connected badly and broke her hand. That is such a horrible pain when you break a bone and she totally hid it.”

Oh Carlton, you only liked watching Lisa cuz her midriff was showing… lol.  Why on earth are we celebrating the fact that Brandi broke her hand and hid it?  What kind of message are we sending? Is the message that hiding a broken hand by not crying about it and by not seeking medical attention somehow makes you tough or something?  That’s really screwed up… On the other hand (literally…lol…), a couple of weeks ago, you wanted us to think that breaking down at dinner into a sobbing puddle of goo after aggressively verbally attacking someone is somehow equally acceptable?  Like it’s okay to cry in one situation but not in the other?  Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with Brandi crying – but it’s the wonky ways these women are pretending to be badasses that just makes me crazy…. Err… crazier.

Joyce Giraud de Ohoven

Joyce greets us as usual, then blogs, “At the beginning of the episode we see Carlton auditioning girls to work the pole at her party. If that’s what you like, it’s fine, though I frankly don’t see how that is ‘empowering women.’”

Well, Carlton isn’t making the pageant circuit so she’s prolly not much into “empowering women.”  She’s more into the conquest of women, I think.

Joyce writes, “I am not entirely pro-gun, and I was always against having one in the house until we had to experience a real scare. A couple of years ago, we lived in a home that was in a private, very “safe” Beverly Hills area — or so I thought. On a Sunday night at 9 pm two guys were coming up to our home with ski masks and shot guns. It was frightening! I was lucky that my husband became my “King Kong” and larger than life, thumping his chest in front of the robbers, yelling “Get the f— out of my house.” My dog who is trained to attack, broke the window with her head. We always say that the robbers were probably more scared of the dog than anything else, and luckily they never entered the house.”

Was it just me, or did the show lead us to believe that the incident with the ski masked guys just recently happened? I could have been hallucinating – I do that a lot when I’m watching the show these days… I find myself sometimes drifting off while dreaming of a better show.  Well, I can dream, can’t I?

Joyce blogs, “After that we decided to get a gun to protect our babies, but until now, I had never been to a range to actually fire it. I’ve shot guns before for movie roles, but never a real gun. I was a bit nervous but between the instructor and my wonderful husband I felt very safe — and I must say pretty cool. It was quite an experience.”

The only thing worse than the way that you were carelessly handling a loaded gun at the firing range is the fact that you’ve owned a gun for all this time and you didn’t bother to learn how to handle it.  I mean I understand if you, Joyce, would never touch a gun under any circumstance.  But having a gun in your home and not be adequately educated on it is simply unacceptable.

Joyce writes, “Now that my husband installed an insane alarm system in our new home, I hope I will never have to use the gun. But I do want to feel protected, because if anyone was to mess with my babies that’s the moment when I would become Lara Croft and do whatever needs to be done.”

Okay, see… You eggmit would have accessed the gun if something had happened.  For someone so educated, it’s pretty stupid you didn’t get properly trained or acclimated to the proper use of a gun.

Joyce blogs, “I really liked seeing Brandi fix things with her father, because life is so short that we can’t waste time being upset with the people we love.”

Awww, kumbayah.

Joyce further writes, “Kyle’s family is beautiful and I love them! I admire the Shabbat tradition and no matter which faith you are of, there is nothing more wonderful than dedicating a certain day to spend time with your family and loved ones, absent of TV, phone, and other interruptions. Sophia is growing into an amazing young woman and her bat mitzvah was simply perfection.”

Again, kumbayah.  Surprisingly, Joyce only talked a little bit about the self-defense outing she planned, but she does say, “It was so cute to see Kim and Kyle in the ring. We all had such a laugh! I LOVED IT!”

It was all pretty funny. I admit this scene brought back memories of my brother, captain of the wrestling team, testing out his latest wrestling moves on me.  Uncle… Uncle… Uncle!!

Kim Richards

Kim greets us then blogs, “Watching Brandi struggle with her relationship with her Dad… I have had the awesome pleasure of meeting Brandi’s parents, and I love them! They are amazing people! Brandi and her Daddy are just alike!”

It’s odd to me that Kim, of all people, is saying this… Perhaps she’s spent some time with Brandi’s dad, I dunno. Kim then starts talking about how she was happy that Yolanda went with Brandi to her book signing.

Kim blogs, “The two of them were so cute on the ride there. Yolanda is one of my good friends as well, and I was glad to see her taking care of Brandi on this weekend. I knew her Dad would show up! I especially loved when they sang “Happy Birthday” and Guy was singing along! I AM A GUY FAN!”

I think it’s great Kim had such great faith in Brandi’s dad.  Kim was really touched by the scene Brandi had with her dad on the rooftop – it moved her to tears.

Kim writes, “Watching my sister and her family talking about Sophia’s Bat Mitzvah was so cute. I had a flash back to my kids and I planning Kimberly’s graduation party. It was so much FUN!”

Celebrate the moments of your life.  Dang, now I want some international coffee.

Kim blogs, “Joyce invited all us Girls to take a self-defense class. What a cool and fun idea! From the minute we arrived we were all busy! Everybody had a good time. I thought Yolanda was going to kill poor Lars… HA.”

Yolanda almost DID kill Lars.

Kim continues, “Kyle and I definitely enjoyed the ring! And poor Brandi broke her hand! I think Lars was glad to see us leave. HA! All in all I thought everyone had great time. All the girls can throw a punch, that’s for sure!”

 

You and Kyle definitely know how to go at it with each other, that’s for sure.  You got all wild-eyed and it was just so surprising to me.  I thought for sure Kyle could take ya, but now I’m not so sure it would be an easy take down.

Kyle Richards

Kyle starts, “This week we get a glimpse into Brandi’s hometown and family. It was touching to see the moments between her father and her. I have never met her father, but I get the sense they are probably very similar and perhaps that’s why they clash at times. No doubt there is a lot of love there. Seeing the two of them together made me miss my Dad.”

Okay, so it’s clear we’re supposed to get the message that Brandi and her dad are alike and that’s why they fight.  Kyle’s the 3rd person to tell us so…  and she tells us so even though she’s never met him.  Why is this important?  I don’t get it.

Kyle writes, “Shabbat dinner is something that we do once a month. When I converted (I went through an Orthodox conversion but we are Reformed) and we got married, I had intended to have Shabbat in our home every week. That didn’t last long. It was impossible to coordinate with a big family. There was always something someone HAD to do. Either work, a friend’s birthday, etc… I admire those that keep Shabbat every week and do not allow anything to interfere with it. It is such a beautiful way to stay connected to friends and family and force yourself to slow down. My kids love having everyone to our home and helping cook in the kitchen.”

I think this part was awesome… Absolutely awesome!  I know Kyle’s taken some flack on how she referred to when Shabbat takes place… but I’m surprised that “Friday – Saturday” vs. “Sundown – Sundown” created such a casino in some circles.  The fact that they prioritize and continue to keep Shabbat every month is pretty kewl.  Isn’t that what it’s all about?

Kyle blogs, “I am actually a very good cook (if I may say so myself). I just don’t know that many recipes. What I DO know I am good at. I have good instincts, but I wanted to broaden my menu so to speak. I took some cooking classes with Aine so I could learn more recipes that are healthy. It’s a lot of fun and now each Shabbat I try something new I learned.”

 

Yeah, I agree – No matter how good you are at something there is always something new you can learn.  I don’t remember seeing Kyle cook too much… but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t do it.  She probably cooks for her family all the time.  It just always seems like someone else is doing the cooking for her for all of her gatherings and events.  But to be fair, that’s probably how I would do it, too – if I could afford it.  Or else I’d make one or two of the items and have others do the rest or something.  Kyle doesn’t have anything to prove – she doesn’t flaunt that she’s a chef or anything

Kyle writes, “Sophia has been so nervous and excited her Bat Mitzvah. She has been VERY particular about what she wants and who she wants there. She is not comfortable singing Hebrew in front of people that she isn’t close with. Sophia has a very strong personality and trying to convince her of anything if she doesn’t want to is close to impossible. Planning this event with her has given me a glimpse into what kind of bride she will be when it’s time to plan her wedding… Can you say Bridezilla? Kidding. Kind of.”

I’m squarely on Sophia’s side on this.  This is a special time for her and within the appropriate parameters she should be able to have the kind of Bat Mitzvah she envisions for herself.  Most people are pretty shy about singing out loud in front of people.  It must be especially tough to sing in a different language and for such a significant spiritual turning point in life.

Kyle blogs, “I loved seeing Joyce at the shooting range. I have always been curious about what that would be like, but I am TERRIFIED of guns. I will say though, seeing a beautiful woman shoot a gun looks hot!”

Color me silly, but if someone is pointing a gun at me, I’m kind of not noticing if they’re hot or not…

Kyle continues, “Self-defense class was hilarious. See? We really do have fun sometimes! Seeing Yolanda looking pretty with a big smile on her face while she choked poor Lars made me laugh out loud. At the time we were not laughing but actually screaming at her to stop (as you saw). But seeing that in this episode did make me laugh.”

Yeah, it made me laff, too.  Lars would have laffed, too – but he was too busy almost dying.

Kyle writes, “Kim and I use to REALLY fight when we were kids! Can you imagine? Haha. Kim is small but SO strong!!! We are supposed to be learning to DEFEND ourselves, and Kim starts beating the daylights out of me. I fought back the only way I know (since I hadn’t learned YET) — and that’s kicking and screaming just like when we were little. Plus, I was laughing so hard I was weak! We all had fun, actually did learn some good moves, and nobody was killed. Miracle. Although Brandi did break her hand, and we all heard the crack. Ouch!”

 

Yeah, I think Kim has some pent-up resentment about you – I don’t suggest getting into the ring with her again anytime soon.  It was like her Wheaties cereal suddenly kicked into to overdrive.  But it was hysterical watching you guys.  It was so funny to me that Kim’s the one who brought a can of “Whoop-ass” into the ring.

Kyle blogs, “Later Lisa, Brandi and I went to dinner. On the car ride I handed Brandi a card that said “I’m not a bitch, I just play one in your life.” I thought it was a funny card and appropriate for our us. Brandi and I have never gotten the chance to get to know each other. It has always been two steps forward, one step back. I always knew that she thought I was someone that I am not. And vice versa. I gave her the card because she had just lost Chica and some other things were going on in her life that I heard about and I felt for her.”

That card was hysterical, Kyle… I just wish you didn’t strategically pass it across Lisa and then mock her in your talking head.  It just smacked that you were purposefully doing it at that point to rub your friendship with Brandi in Lisa’s face. But never fear, Lisa can handle it – it’s just that it wasn’t nice.

Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa writes, “It is disconcerting when we view these episodes so many months later and see how things have changed. As I lay talking to Brandi on her bed, she was still devastated at losing Chica. I felt the loss too, knowing how painful that must be and tried to comfort her… She was not in a particularly good place, and I was aware that her visiting her family was also probably going to be emotionally difficult. I had offered my support in accompanying her, but she declined, choosing Yolanda instead, which in retrospect was probably better as I was playing catchup all year!”

Yeah, but you don’t “really” care about Brandi, no, no, no – not at all.  Puhleeze…

Lisa blogs, “It’s strange when I hear her say I am all diamonds and darlings and I shouldn’t go with her. . . Subtle dig, but it registered.”

Tis okay, Lisa – You’re lucky to be rid of her type of friendship at this point.  She’s self-destructing fast and she’s grabbing people on her way down… Run, Forrest, run!  (Obscure Forrest Gump reference… )…

Lisa blogs, “So we all are invited to a self-defense class. It was a bit of a giggle, Kyle ribbing me about never going to the market, playing with me, and, as most of you know, I love a laugh. So, for the most part, it pretty much went without incident, which is always a good thing. But when Brandi socked the trainer, I heard a crack and thought it was quite possible her hand was broken. She told me that she didn’t want to make a fuss at the lesson in front of Joyce. I understood that.”

ooOOoOOOOoo… So Brandi didn’t want to make a fuss in front of Joyce?  Completely dies laffin’… I hadn’t thought of that aspect… That’s so silly… Well, “Stupid is as stupid does.”  Evidently, Brandi, Lisa and Kyle decide to go out for a drink after the class because Lisa had a little bit of time before she had to go to work at SUR (They were also shooting, “Vanderpump Rules” at that same time).

Lisa writes, “When we sitting there I had noticed Brandi’s hand starting to swell, and having had children who have broken things, felt yes I was being motherly but it was important that she had an x-ray. I would take her.”

 

You’re SO mean, Lisa!  How DARE you?

Lisa continues, “I suddenly I am being warned to back off. Maybe I should’ve done exactly that! I question myself now, should you just let your friends fend for themselves? I don’t think so. In fact, if anyone wants to mother me I would welcome it! Her hand was broken and her wrapping it in celo-tape was not the answer…”

 

If it had been, “duct tape” it would have been okay.  You can do anything with duct tape.

Lisa writes, “And so as the story unfolds, we see hints of dissension in our relationship, which is sad to me as I believed we were so close. There is a slow deterioration that I am starting to see and hopefully some things that I couldn’t fathom will be explained. Your tweets and comments have been so supportive and I thank you for that.”

Tis okay, Lisa… “Life is like a box of chocolates.  You never know what you’re gonna get.”  Brandi is that icky tasting chocolate that looks okay on the outside but is really yucky on the inside.

Yolanda H. Foster

Yolanda greets us with the great news that her MRI shows that she has a 20% improvement in her brain function and she hopes to return to normal, soon!  Being sick for two years has been tough on her.

Yo writes, “There are times when we see quite a lot of each other and times we really don’t, so I am kind of getting to know more about everyone by just watching the show.”

I’m sure that’s true – If you don’t bother to spend time with someone, how would you make any educated conclusions about them?  You can’t… and you just look silly.

Yo spills, “They got into a big blow out months earlier after Brandi’s book release because she exposed a part of his past that he understandably did not want to share with the public. I enjoyed driving around and hearing the stories of Brandi growing up. Even though we both came from equally humble beginnings, her suburb was very different from the little, sleepy farmers town I grew up in. The Glanvilles are a lovely, hard-working family that have problems just like yours and mine.”

Whoops!  Yo didn’t get Brandi’s memo that she was supposed to stick to the story that Brandi and her dad were fighting all because of her Oscar dress – But we knew better than that, didn’t we?  Oopsie!  That is just utterly hysterical…lol!

Yo writes, “I believe the biggest lesson here for Brandi is to learn to protect the privacy of her family and friends. Just because something is the truth, does not mean you need to share it with the world, especially when it involves others. Thinking before she speaks is going to be mandatory because the choice of her words are starting to have consequences that effect not only her but also her loved ones.”

Gee, ya think?

Yo blogs, “The afternoon with Joyce at Fortune Gym was informative and great fun. As you can see, taking direction with my Lyme brain is just a tad unreliable as I almost choked the poor guy. Embarrassing!!! Watching it back, Lars clearly gave instructions twice but I guess it did not register in my head. I am glad he thought it was close to a happy ending.”

That scene was just so funny right up until the part when you almost killed a guy which made it a tad more serious… but still funny!  You can totally see on your face how proud you were of yourself that you were so strong… I mean, once I was able to pry myself away from alarmingly looking at Lars’ face that was quickly turning every shade of blue and stuff… lol.  Yo goes on to tell us that we only saw a small portion of Kim and Kyle’s grudge match and that everyone was laughing hysterically at them.  Yo thinks it’s great to see that they have worked through their issues and “enjoy their sisterhood.”  Really?  I think Kim just wanted to kick Kyle’s dupa!  Lol…  Yo says at the end of her blog, “Family is really all we have.”  I dunno, as someone with hardly any family, I have friends who are far closer to me than family.  My friend, Alma, gave me a cute thingie that says, “Friends are family you get to choose.”  Choose well, my friends, choose well!

Well, that’s it for this week… Can’t wait to see what they try to come up with next week!  Thanks for taking the time to read… Happy trails!

        You’re welcome, LaineyLainey so nice we say it twice… So like… I take it you’re not a Yo fan, huh? lolol… Actually are any of us fans of any of them? Nope… For some reason I like to point and snark at their crazy behavior… Anything on TV is open season for snark and it’s SNARK SEASON! lol…

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Well, I go back and forth with Yo. I like so many things about her,…but not her lecture-y, know-it-all tone. She does not practice what she preaches. Choose your friends well, get wise, proper etiquette… Those are the things I do not like. She practices a Complete double standard. She lectures her castmates, but only some of them. There is an Inconsistent, double standard way about her, and she doesn’t acknowledge it at all. She excuses it away. “Well, only one person checked on me, well she is broken, etc.”

          Her devotion to her hubby and her kids, her openness with the Lyme disease, her love of home and pursuit of beautiful surroundings, the lemons, …those are things i like about her. More lemons!!!!

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      I wish you had hit the lottery, Powelly-Pooh… Then we all could say that we knew you when… lol

    Update on my Heath Journey-
    Well Friday was the appointment with the ENT, for the Thyroid removal, first off the view from the waiting room was amazing and didn’t bother me to wait a few minutes, although I arrived almost 45 minutes early and they took me in. So, of course spent 15 minutes going over the history of what all led up to this point, he had all my scans, paperwork, etc. but wanted the 411 of how this all began. Again, another doctor who A) asked if I am suing the former doctors, and B) was also astonished as to how this all kind of came about. Not sure if I explained this earlier, but every doctor so far has said how weird all of this all came about, the symptoms and pains leading up to diagnosis are so FAR out of left field and all have said I have been lucky they found it. So, after a camera scope up the nose down the throat, not the funnest thing to have done, he explained the procedure of the surgery. Pretty much what I thought it would be, until he got to the scariest part, he remarked that he hadn’t seen in the documents where anyone had biopsied the Lymphnodes, uhm, no, so the chances of the cancer spreading there given my issues were HIGH he said, well that took my Pollyana bubble down a bit, BOOO. So, I told him I had TWO full head to toe MRI’s one before surgery and one after, and he said okay he would look at them. So off to the computer screens, he toggled back and forth, finding the slides he needed, he was blowing them up, looking side to side, looked back at me a few times, spent about 15 minutes. Then said he had to leave the room to get a closer look at the slides on a larger screen. So, he came back in the room and said to me, HUH, well, unless he sees something really different once he cuts me open, the lymph nodes appear completely CLEAR. He showed me the slides and he said he was actually ASTONISHED, he hadn’t seen cells so clear with what my symptoms. WOOHOO! He said the nodules are so large, it could be hiding something, but really didn’t think so, plus other than the weakness still in my legs, I have NO other symptoms, I am not feeling sickly at ALL, a great sign he said. So, the Thyroidectemy could possible be next week. Now, also I have this small lump on my head, which my Oncologists were all set to radiate, however the ENT has said HOLD THE PHONE, uhm we need to biopsy the bugger before we go frying it, he loves my Oncologists, but they are sometimes quick to radiate before double checking. On the radiation front, my techs love me, they are said next week is my last week of radiation, unless they decide that we need more in a month or so. Finally got my doc to laugh, he thinks I am a HOOT and I am the peppiest Cancer patient he has ever had, I told him it had been my mission to make him laugh, and he said mission accomplished on Friday. 🙂 The girls at the ENT loved my bag I had made to carry all my stuff, not sure if I told you guys about it, but it’s a positive spin on the front of the bag, and my own sayings on the back which are a bit less subtle! One of the sayings is “cancer you picked the wrong bitch”,! So, this is the update, to me, things looking better and better by the day, the radiation is working, the lump may be nothing but some squemus cell that my whole family has had at one time or another and they will just remove that, the Thyroidectmy is going to take place soon, and it doesn’t look like it’s moved into the Lympnodes AT ALL, which is HUGE, so nothing in the organs, or lymphs, and the one spot on the in the spine, that may be the only hiccup, but that seems to be responding to radiation. Legs are almost back to normal, just a bit of numbness left on the right leg, but that should be fixed in a week or two. Love you guys here for being part of my TEAM, you guys rock and everyone’s thoughts and prayers I am SURE are helping me through all of this! Oh, and I have lost 4 pounds, but still on the dreaded steroids, begged Dr. Berk(oncologist) on Friday to get off them, he said no, I told him I was seeing him Monday and the begging will again commence! Sorry for the double post with yesterday’s blog, NMD dropped a new blog when I was in the middle of writing this!

    • TexasTart says:

      Thanks for the update T-Rex, I have no doubt that cancer picked the wrong bitch to mess with! Keeping you in my prayers for continued strength and perseverance. 🙂

    • ladebra says:

      This is just the best news T-Rex! Thank you so much for sharing. I admire your spirit and the way you are handling the situation. And will keep sending love and light. So great to hear that your doctors are optimistic and that maybe this will be behind you very soon. You are an incredibly strong woman.💕

    Stars, loving all of the Forest Gump references!!

    Thanks for showing us all that Brandi is just a ball of inconsistencies. Still saying her dad is upset about the dress, yet Yolanda is confirming what he really is upset about.

    Great job as always!!

    T Rex, always in my prayers (((( )))))

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks for your kind words, Sue… “Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.”

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Shrimp cocktail, shrimp tacos, shrimp enchiladas, shrimp mousse, …

        I too, love that Yo “didnt get the memo” about the reason for the beef between Brandi And her dad. So funny. I believe Yo’s version. She may get set off my “know it all” alarm, but she has shown herself to be truthful.

  7. Mel says:

    If Brandi over exaggerated her dad’s so called “drug dealer” job….imagine what else she over exaggerated in that book. I feel badly for Brandi’s family….unlike everyone else they are stuck with her. She acts like an immature preteen and I am sure she is even worse behind the scenes. Having family members or friends like that is truly exhausting….they literally drain you. Lisa needs to count her lucky stars that she is rid of Brandi.

    I haven’t written on the blog for a while…but I do read it every chance I get : )

    Good morning!!! Not a happy day in this household. Aiden is G R U M P Y!!!! Pick up, put down, hand to daddy, feed him, rock him, dose of tylenol, teething rings giraffe our fingers nothing is helping kind of day!! Its gonna be a long day that’s for sure!! I hope to keep him as comfortable as possible.

    Todays agenda packing, hold Aiden, cleaning, hold Aiden, more packing!! At least his big brother is trying to help!! Which is sweet!!

    Anyone watching sister wives??

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Rut roh…

    • LaineyLainey says:

      So sorry to hear Aiden is not feeling well. Pooooor baby! I wonder what’s wrong. I don’t miss those days…when they can’t tell you what’s wrong. I hated that feeling…but we all get through it somehow, right? I hope he starts feeling better.

      So cute about the Guv helping out today.

  9. T-Rex says:

    Starzy, thanks for the Blog, you rock, they were so funny! Again, MORONSTFUBrandi is using “revisionist” history to make her behaviour be explained by things happening around her. May I point out yet again that it’s been almost FOUR years since she and ManCandy split, seriously HOW long are you going to milk this shit! He didn’t leave you destitute, he didn’t leave you to raise your kids alone, etc. IT’S RIDICULOUS! You have bragged about F****ng loads of dudes since you split, in fact your new book apparently has WHOLE chapters about it. You have pretty much LIED about what you and your dad are going through, and it has a WHOLE lot more to do with your behaviour and NOT about some dress that didn’t fit properly. One thing she is FINALLY realizing is that her attempt to “take down” the LISAV is NOT working, and she is now trying to backpedal to save some sort of face, and fans. UHM MORONSTFUBrandi, your diarrhea of the twatter that started pre-season against her is there for EVERYONE to still see, because uhm, it’s a PUBLIC forum and NEVER goes away, you again prove that you are a Grade A IDIOT.

    I have also lost a lot of respect for YOLO-LemonHead regarding all of this, I think she secretly is jealous of LISAV, but I think she also has “BOUGHT” into MORONSTFUBrandi’s lies, I do think she may be getting a clue phone but not quick enough.

    I HATE CarltonTheEvilLesbianWitch, I think we are going to find out eventually that her she and her husband are Swingers, they fit the vibe, at the very least I think she will finally admit she is Bi-sexual.

    I like that VileKyle explained her position regarding her religion, although she should not have to justify this to anyone! She is a good role model to her daughters on the subject and does keep a good jewish home for her family and husband and no one should be bashing her for that, and I have seen this on the blogs and I don’t get it. HOWEVER, the card thing was SO stupid, and we must remind ourselves that this card was given just days after MORONSTFUBrandi’s Tampon-gate, so LISAV, was probably like WTF are you giving her card for?

    LisaV, you are finally getting the CLUEPHONE on MORONSTFUBrandi, oh and MORONSTFUBrandi, you and Lisa will NEVER be friends again, you can maybe be acquaintances, but never friends, have you learned nothing, once you BURN LIsaV, she is DONE DONE DONE. So all those FREE dinners and Drinks and you getting invited to meet the movers and shakers in LA are GONE. All those great contacts that probably helped get you jobs, is now GONE GONE GONE.

    • TexasTart says:

      GONE! Great post! I agree with it all, except I don’t hate Carlton, I just never want to see her on TV again. Despite all the sexual content of her so-called-storyline, I don’t think she will ever fess up to anything. Umm, I actually wonder if that’s not all a big act sometimes.

      • vilzvet says:

        Post of the day so far! lolol….I don’t even watch the 11 minute teaser my tv records anymore, I just delete it. The show is a bore.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Does anyone find her (carlton) sexy? She reminds me too much of Bart Simpson.

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          LL… I done told you about raising my blood pressure so early in the day! LOL Or maybe I haven’t, so don’t ask crazy questions about CarltonTheWhoreMan… so early in the day. The answer is NO!! NO. No. NO.No. Not to me. Of course it’s because I dislike her… ALOT. To me she’s a hypocritical, lecherous, blasphemous wretch but I guess her husband loves it and that’s all that matters. I, on the other hand, want her to disappear off my tv screen and continue to cast strippers for her hedonistic soirees OFF BRAVO TV!!

          And finally… kudos to you LL. She indeed looks like a Simpsons character but not Bart more like Mo. 😛

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Lol… T-Rex – My favorite lil dinasaur… Tell us how you really feel. You just crack me the heck up… lol

  10. ladebra says:

    Oh gosh, what cuteness! … Ref called unkitten-like conduct!

    • TexasTart says:

      HA! Years ago, watching the Puppy Bowl, I wondered why no kitten bowl!

    • jezzibel says:

      My kitten Studmuffin loves to play fetch(mostly he want’s to do this while I am contemplating life whilst on the porcelain throne ) He will bring his glitter pompom deposit near to where I can reach, I throw, he goes after it, brings it back ( I try and throw it far away enough so I can wipe, flush, and pull up my pants before he gets back). SO I wonder what the prerequisites are for the kitten bowl.

      • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

        lol… You had me at the name, “Studmuffin.”

        • jezzibel says:

          The people that gave him up thought that he was a she and were calling him muffin, so we went with Studmuffin, we also call him Studders, Studly Moore, Stud McMuffin. He will be 6 months old next month, but he is going to be a decent sized.

      • TexasTart says:

        😆 ROTFL 😆

  11. ladebra says:

    Thanks for the blog Starzy! I love your POV. Sometimes I think my disenchantment with HW shows is a direct correlation to my short attention span, but then I watch a Carlton, and nope, that’s not it!

    Haha! Hope everyone is staying warm and feeling better 💖

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Hello, my neighbor… I think our disenchantment with HW shows is a direct correlation of the lack of a substantive storylines with overused formulaic regurgitations of what we see in every other HW franchise stirred together with extra crass just to make it all just a little bit more nauseating.

  12. Rebecca thinks you should google "werewolf Joe" images when Bravo shows tick you off. says:

    Ok I just finished watching last week’s show…..

    Brandi had way too much use of her fingers to have a broken hand. No. Way. In. Hell. It. Was. Broken.

    None.

    Zero.

    Period.

    She may have had a bad sprain but it was not broken. She’s just an effing liar.

    • T-Rex says:

      Totally AGREED! In subsequent pictures she has twatted and been seen in out and about and we will see in the coming weeks there is NO cast on that hand. I know that casts can be different today, not that traditional plaster, but a cast of some sort none the less. In addition, even with the new casts it takes SIX weeks to heal a break, not six minutes or six days, and there is NO way she had a cast of any sort for six weeks. Again proving she is a lying sack of crap. Seriously, I have to give an apology to every single person on this blog for defending her crap last year, boy I was SO wrong, and had no clue as to the depths of her lying capabilities!

  13. I Need A Life! says:

    I’ve never been a fan of Atlanta girls, but this Apollo story has me reading up on them. I would love to see Wendy Williams interview this Angela Stanton who wrote a book on Phaedra. I saw some on line interviews with her and she tells a powerful story. Apparently she was framed by Phaedra in some type of insurance fraud, and as she watched Phaedra cuddling her baby on TV, she remembered being chained to a bed in prison while having her own baby. How can Phaedra NOT have known about Apollo this time around. There’s a defamation trial coming up on Feb. 4 in which Stanton is defending herself against Phaedra. Thank god. I really needed something to look forward to since the rest of the Housewives and Mob Wives have sucked all the joy.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      According to Angela, Phae Phae knows everything.

      • TexasTart says:

        Wow just wow. Either way, like we’ve said before, WHY voluntarily be on TV while you’re up to no good?!

        • T-Rex says:

          I don’t think Phae-Phae knew anything, and I think Apollo was hiding his nefarious activities, he is a criminal and a con-man, guys like him never think they will get caught, and if they are, they usually have enough dirt on someone else to get a reduced sentence for their crimes. As I posted yesterday, my cousin said she heard that Apollo has been under surveillance since the book came out. I would believe the Feds have a pretty good case against him. I personally don’t think we will be seeing Apollo outside of prison after this season. This isn’t his first prison-rodeo, and since this crime is similar to the crime he previously served time for, this gets admitted in the new trial as a “pattern” of crime. Here is information on his past arrest on RICO charges wherein he served 5 years of an 18 year sentence, he won’t see parole that quickly once he is incarcerated on the current charges, and will probably see MORE time, due to a second offense. I am trying to find out if he had other criminal charges. http://starcasm.net/archives/62013

          • Kat From Ohio says:

            i think she would have been arrested too if she had been involved. honestly, i think she’s smart enough to know that if she was involved in a crime and on a reality show it would come out. i think they kept all of their assets separate–another reason why she probably didn’t know. BUT i do think she likely suspected something, which accounts for the the tension between them this season

            • T-Rex says:

              If she is involved, she will be arrested and indicted, I am sure the FEDS have TONS of evidence and if she was involved, which I truly do not believe, she would have been also arrested. Apollo is a sneaky bugger and has been doing time off and on since he was 19, so far as I can find, and probably before that, but juvenile criminal records are sealed so there is NO way to find those.

          • I Need A Life! says:

            Maybe he has, “enough dirt,” on Phaedra and that’s what the Feds are going to be looking for. Would be interesting to learn if her “dead” clients at the funeral home found new life in those fake IDs. I actually never watched the show, but how interesting to be watching knowing what has been exposed.

            • Buttercream says:

              oooohhhh .. :”dead clients” how clever of you to think of such an idea … can they vote, too? Apollo is going to jail, again … hmmmm … who else is involved in his schemes?

              • I Need A Life! says:

                They’ve been known to vote in Chicago. And Renee’s husband (Mob Wives) ratted on her father so he could get less prison time. Real life. Why not Apollo ratting on Phaedra.

    • Anne says:

      Do you know whether L. Lin Wood is still representing Phaedra in the defamation case? For some reason, I thought that he was representing her with regard to the defamation claims, but I’m not sure if that is still the case.

      • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

        I have no idea… It will be interesting to see who ends up with which attorney, won’t it?

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Doesn’t it make your head spin?

      • Too elaborated scam for Apollo, in IMHO. Makes Juicy Joe looks like a saint!

        • Rebecca thinks you should google "werewolf Joe" images when Bravo shows tick you off. says:

          Juicy has been getting away with it so he kept going.

          What kind of moron gets out of prison (meaning, he got caught) and goes right back to his crooked ways? He’s ruined his wife and those babies are so adorable! What was this fool thinking?

  14. Hey, Starsy! I almost live to read your Blogs Blogged!!!! Laffin’ to tears! Love that Yolo did not get the memo to blog on what was the reason Mr. Glanville was disgusted at her daughter. We got to watch Brandi packing and telling Lisa her dad was mad that she shared he has ‘drug dealing”, Lisa corrected that Mr. Glanville was jus growing weed and selling,,,BIG difference (eye roll).

    I saw a picture of the so mentioned dress… from the waist down was nice, from the waist up… out of proportion!!!! completely Fugly! Like the dress was for another person 2 sizes smaller.

    Great blog Stars99. 🙂

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Please be cautious NMD, Lynn posted a ‘book review’ written by someone else..in regards to the first book about Phaedra; and Phaedra’s attorney sent Lynn a demand letter saying she needed to take it down or they would take legal action.

      This is one of the reasons why, Phaedra will never sit right with mel Lynn really liked her and was supportive of her..and would have likely taken the book review down if Phaedra had only asked her. But instead she tried to intimidate Lynn, not cool.

      It was so stupid since, the book review was so old and long since forgotten about until Fake-ra stirred up the hornet’s nest.

    Wow, only in the 2nd period at Yankee Stadium and 8 goals scored so far! It is so pretty with the snow falling and a great turn-out. Feels like there are more NJ Devils fans there though going by crowd noise. Nice and toasty watching this from my couch because it is only like 20 degrees in NY. Let’s go Rangers!

    • Nancy says:

      My LA Kings couldn’t buy a goal last night at Dodger Stadium.
      We needed the 2 points. 😦

      • vilzvet says:

        Oh that’s right yours was last night. Rangers really needed the 2 pts too. Wonder why they didn’t do a day game? It was so bright here today it was delayed an hour due to glare!

        • Nancy says:

          Good question. It’s started at 6:30pm. It’s a beautiful stadium when lit up
          so maybe that’s it.

    Are the feds going to give Andy a plaque or a reward of some kind, for inadvertently putting the Giudices & Nida’s on TV? All we need are federal indictments against a housewife or househusband from the OC, BH, and NY and we’d have a complete set.

    • jezzibel says:

      Get a complete set and the feds might give them a group rate or something

    • T-Rex says:

      CLUB FED – The RealHousewives addition. Like I said earlier they could be possibly on their way to their own wing. Going to be interesting to see what other Househusband winds up in the FEDS crossfire.
