The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “The Curse of Carlton” and Vanderpump Rules – Liars and more Liars

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “The Curse of Carlton” by BB

This is Episode 13.  Last season, there were 19 episodes before the three-part reunion.  Bravo should take note.  When people start counting episodes, that’s usually not a good sign.

It’s time for Carlton “Hugh Heafner” Gebbia’s Playboy Mansion style pool party, which consists of a bunch of nekkid ladies grinding on poles and naughty gift bags.  Ooooooh, how edgy!  At least she doesn’t let her daughters attend the party.  They have to go to grandma’s house so they won’t be scarred for life by what they might see or hear.  I see Carlton hired the Fatburger guys.  They seem to show up at all the shindigs on this show.   They must have some kind of connection.  Didn’t I read somewhere that one of Kyle’s daughters is dating or engaged to one of the Fatburger guys?

When Ken and Lisa show up, Lisa has to drag Ken past the nekkid ladies at the door before he reaches out and grabs one.  Yolanda arrives and gives Carlton a peek of her wonder-woman swim suit.  Lisa asks Brandi about her hand and Brandi makes a big ass deal about not going to the doctor.  Yolanda thinks Lisa overdoes it sometimes and Brandi is revolting like a child against her mommy.  Brandi questions Lisa’s motives and says Lisa wants to make her feel like shit.  Not sure how acting concerned about someone can make them feel like shit, but whatever.  Brandi and Yolanda have an agenda this season in case you haven’t noticed.  Why else would Yolanda say something like Gigi is leaving at the end of the summer and it’s making her (Yolanda) want to take inventory of who her real friends are in life?  This ganging up on Lisa is just so frigging funny to me.

Lisa, Kyle and Carlton are standing around talking about what disgusting (Lisa’s word) things are in the Hustler goody bags.  Kyle offends Carlton by asking her if that’s a Jewish star tattoo on the back of her neck.  Carlton offends Kyle by asking her if she’s effing kidding her.  I think ALL of these chicks get offended way too easily.  Later, Kyle gives Carlton a gift as she’s leaving the party and Carlton is actually touched and wonders if they could possibly become friends.  Nah!

Kim shows up at a Hollywood collectors show to meet with her fans.  She says there is a long line of people to meet her and take pictures.  Some are Nanny and the Professor fans, some are Hello Larry fans and some are Witch Mountain fans.  Kim’s long time crush Jimmy McNichol shows up and tells her she hasn’t changed a bit.  The stars at this show seem to be ones you no longer see on TV or in the movies of today, but are from the past.  Kim seems to be genuinely appreciative of some fans who show up to give her their grandmother’s turtle pin because they know she loves turtles.  Good times.

It’s LEMON time!  Yolanda is making lemonade.  She gets Bella to sample it and Bella says it tastes perfect.  Yolanda needed an excuse to get the girls together.  She looked at her little memory wall of paintings her kids and friends have done over the years and comes up with the idea that Gigi needs one of these walls in her new apartment in New York when she goes away to school.  So, she has invited the girls to come over to make some pictures for Gigi’s wall, because these women are so close to Gigi you know.   Yolanda and Bella carry all the painting supplies up the hill to get everything set up.  Two minutes before arrival time, Yolanda receives a text from Lisa that she can’t make it because she has meetings to go to.  Yolanda canceled her important meetings (Yolanda has important meetings?) so she could have this get together.  Yolanda thought Lisa was a better friend than that.  Can you see where this is going folks?   Joyce and Carlton are the only ones who show up for this little painting party on time.  Carlton is a little frazzled after her pool party the day before.  Carlton accuses Joyce of labeling Brandi an alcoholic when she refuses the wine offered by Yolanda but says maybe Brandi will want some when she gets there.   The three ladies huff and puff it up the hillside.   Well Yolanda seems used to it, but Joyce says if she had to make that climb every day, she’d finally have the butt she wants.

Kyle has a part on the soap “Days of our Lives.”  She is trying to learn her lines and talks about having to memorize lines before she could read.  Kyle says acting is part of her life.  Kyle admits that her mom put her acting dreams onto her kids.  Kyle says she doesn’t regret it, but she’s glad her kids never got the acting bug.   Later Kyle shows up at Burbank studios where she gets her hair and makeup done.  She’ll be in the 12,211th episode of Days of Our Lives.  She drops George Clooney’s name when she talks to the hair stylist about being on the show ER.  She doesn’t regret having kids at a young age and giving up her acting “career.”   Kyle plays a talent agent in the scene.  She does her scene and says “Susan Lucci watch out.”  I don’t think Susan Lucci has anything to worry about.

Getting back to Lemon Land, Brandi finally shows up in ratty jeans shorts with a broken hand (so she says).  She made the ultimate sacrifice by showing up for Yolanda with a broken hand (so she says) when she should be in the emergency room (so she says).  She is such a loyal friend and Lisa is not.  This is the subtle running theme of this season.  The dream team is cracking.  If you haven’t picked up on this by now, then you just haven’t been listening and watching closely enough.  Hey, King David took time out of his busy schedule of making music magic to join the ladies’ painting party.  What a treat!  He tells them the hottest four women showed up before he leaves what he calls the hen party.  Carlton asks the others if anyone has been talking shit about her behind her back, specifically Kyle.  She dreamt that Kyle was talking negatively about her faith.  Yolanda and Joyce try to put the kibosh on this conversation because Kyle is not there.  Joyce is right when she says Carlton needs to talk to Kyle about it and just because she dreamt about it doesn’t mean it’s true.  Even Brandi thinks Carlton is a little too intense and defensive about her faith.

real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-4-did-carltons-curse-work

Carlton brings up Kyle again later (unless this conversation was edited and chopped, which I think it was).  The subject of spells comes up.  Joyce tells Carlton she doesn’t believes in spells.  Carlton tells her watch out when she gets home that night.  Carlton thinks Joyce is very naïve.  Later that night Michael gets very sick.  Did Carlton put a spell on Michael?  Kim believes it when Joyce tells her about it.  Seems Joyce may be starting to believe it too.  I don’t believe in spells and I cannot believe this topic is going to be pursued next week.  I am not taking this show seriously, at all.  It has become one big joke to me.

Vanderpump Rules: S2 – Ep12 & 13

“Til Death Do Us Part” & “Bitch Slap” by HydrangeaHussy

I apologize for missing last week’s blog.  I started a new job & was presented as a Duchess of my Mardi Gras krewe, so it was a super busy week.

At the end of the last episode, Kristen refused to work with Ariana because she allegedly slept with Tom, Stassi & Scheana were friends again & Jax was still stirring the pot.  In Episode 12 Stassi helped Lisa with Scheana & Shay’s engagement.  It was beautiful!  Kristen finally decides to take a break from Tom.  Tom finally lets Jax have it for spilling the beans, though he admits that he made out with Ariana.  Kristen takes it out on the girls, rather than on Tom.  I know that ratings are up, but these kids are wearing me out with the lying and the constantly changing alliances.

This week, we begin with Stassi & Katie relaying the whole Sur to Kristina.  Jax revealed to Lisa that he slept with Kristen twice.  Stassi immediately begins plotting revenge.  Tom still doesn’t know that his best friend was sleeping with his girlfriend.  I don’t blame Stassi for being angry with Kristen, she did ruin the Cabo trip & has played the victim card repeatedly.

Stassi catches Lisa leaving Sur.  Lisa says that she never thought Jax would admit to sleeping with Kristen.  She tries to comfort Stassi, encouraging her to be the bigger person.  Of course we know Stassi will never do that.  Lisa is concerned that Kristen appears to be spiraling downward, but says that she can’t fire people because of who they sleep with.  They both know that Kristen will deny it when confronted.  Lisa tells Stassi not to create a scene at Sur.

The guys meet up for Jax’s birthday.  He’s turning 34.  Tom is conspicuously absent.  Stassi then appears & Jax looks stunned.  After the stunts he pulled on her birthdays, why is he surprised?  She announces to the table that Jax was chasing her for a year while sleeping with Kristen.  Peter flips out!  When asked how he could do that to Tom, Jax says that Tom was cheating on Kristen.  Being cheated on isn’t an excuse to cheat – Kristen should have left the relationship.  Stassi asks for Jax’s help in confronting Kristen.  Other Tom tells them that they should resolve this away from the group.  Jax tries to excuse his behavior by saying he was in a bad place, that all guys do that, & that Stassi isn’t an angel.  Jax agrees to help with the confrontation.

There’s a few couples scene of Tom & Kristen.  He’s supporting her in her dreams of acting & helping her with her reel.  Kristen apologized to Stassi & Katie, who agreed to meet her.  Kristen is worried how they will treat her.  She is keeping up the charade that she hasn’t done anything wrong.

Everyone is at the confrontation – Scheana, Shay, Peter, etc.  Stassi doesn’t do anything half-way, she wants as many witnesses to Kristen’s downfall as possible.  She isn’t going as hard on Jax because he was honest & has agreed to back her.  Kristen & Tom arrive.  Tom is all smiles, while Kristen looks nervous.  Kristen immediately apologizes to Stassi for the fight at Sur.  Kristen says that she hasn’t been a bad friend, but admits that she shouldn’t have lashed out at Stassi because of her own relationship issues.

Stassi just comes out with it – Kristen slept with Stassi’s boyfriend.  Kristen denies it & Stassi calls Jax over.  She then calls Tom over so he can hear.  Put on the spot, Jax says that he slept with Kristen twice.  Stassi tells Tom that the first time was while Tom was in the house.  Tom doesn’t believe it.  I’m not sure I can blame Tom, because Jax has lied about so many things.  Stassi says that she believes Jax because he doesn’t get anything out of this.  But he’s getting attention & back in Stassi’s good graces.  Jax keeps asserting that it happened & Kristen keeps denying it.  Tom wants to know why Stassi is doing this in front of everyone.  Stassi turns on Kristen.  She calls Kristen all kinds of names, then slaps her & pours a drink on her.  Kristen attacks Stassi, but Other Tom pulls her off.  As Tom is trying to leave, Jax is trying to show him text messages from Kristen.  Kristen leaves, saying that she will sue Stassi.  Stassi continues to rally her troops, asking everyone to ignore her so that she will quit.

vanderpump-rules-season-2-stassi-slaps-kristen

Stassi tells Lisa that she slapped Kristen.   She can’t let it go because she knows that Kristen is guilty.  Lisa tells her to just move on.  Stassi says that she wants to get Kristen to quit, but Lisa tells her to cut it out.  In her TH, Lisa admits that she wouldn’t be able to work with someone like that.  I know that I wouldn’t either.  Kristen is at home, icing her cheek.  Tom believes that Jax is lying – which is possible since Jax has consistently lied about everything.  Tom is disgusted by the thought of Kristen hooking up with Jax.  Kristen is mad that Stassi believes Jax.  Jax arrives at Sur & Lisa confronts him.  She tells him that she doesn’t care who he sleeps with, as long as it doesn’t affect her business.  Lisa points out that Jax thinks everything is ok if he just admits what he does, there are no repercussions for his actions.

It’s beach day.  During the girls spray tan session we learn that Tom was invited, but told not to bring Kristen.  Stassi is called out for being ok with Jax, but not from Kristen.  Stassi tells everyone that she expects this from Jax, but that Kristen was playing the cheating victim all year.  When asked if he feels bad about it, Jax avoids the question.  He says that he doesn’t care about Tom, and admits that he doesn’t feel guilty.  Stassi reminds him that he is lucky that she isn’t turning everyone against him.  She’s pretty confident in her queen bee status.  I don’t understand how Jax could sleep with his best friend’s girlfriend & not feel any remorse.

Other Tom arrives & asks to look at Jax’s phone.  He believes Kristen, but wants to investigate anyway.  There are texts on Jax’s phone from Kristen in which she asks who Jax told so that she can cover her bases.  Tom asks point-blank if they had sex.  Jax says ‘yes.’  Tom asks a serious of specific questions, which Jax simply answers.  Tom is hurt that his friend would do this to him.  He has been such a good & close friend, but Jax betrayed him.  Tom doesn’t understand how Jax could do this & act to calm about it.  Jax says that Tom cheated on her, so what’s the difference.  Tom points out that he didn’t cheat with a friend.  Both Tom & Jax leave, going different ways.

Watch What Happens Live by NMD

Watch What Happens Live had Stassi and Yolanda on last night.  Stassi says the season finale will answer all our questions about the text messages on Jax’s phone, and it is unbelievable. I’m actually a little curious, but I can’t tell if the whole cast is playing roles in a cheezy soap opera or if they are really this disgusting.

Yolanda looked really healthy and happy.  Yay!  Asked about Brandi and their friendship, she backed off considerably.  After much hemming and hawing she said they were close during filming.  BURN.  Brandi (of course) couldn’t let that go and tweeted Andy:

Yolanda took it in stride, smiling, and saying yes she did cancel her plans with Brandi.  Something tells me she wasn’t smiling inside at being called out.  But afterwards reprimanded Brandi on twitter. The reunion should be interesting.

Yolanda’s daughter (Gigi) was in the clubhouse.  She tweeted that she starts school tomorrow – I hope she got some sleep.

Gigi sent a tweet to Brandi that she later deleted. Brandi responded that she loved her too.

(VV captured that deleted tweet string)

Gigi deleted this tweet.

@GiGiHadid: I love @BrandiGlanville and that’s that.

I love @BrandiGlanvilleand that’s that.—
Gigi Hadid (@GiGiHadid) January 28, 2014

@BrandiGlanville: @GiGiHadid awwww thank u love. Love u also.

@GiGiHadidawwww thank u love. Love u also.—
Brandi Glanville (@BrandiGlanville) January 28, 2014

@bellahadid: @BrandiGlanville @GiGiHadid I’m feeling left out

@BrandiGlanville@GiGiHadidI’m feeling left out—
Bella Hadid (@bellahadid) January 28, 2014

When asked if Yo told her to delete her tweet, the response:

Nope GiGi – your mom distanced herself from Brandi big time on National TV and got the Brandi payback. #getwise

  1. Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

    603 comments on the “Let’s chat” blog…we out did ourselves last night!! What a chatty little blog we have here!!!

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

      Jill how’s George?

    • chismosa™ says:

      Wow! That’s seriously high !

      I disagree on Yo looking great on WWH. I’m sorry I just felt she looked ‘off’- her face — either maybe emotionally rundown or I don’t know, bad makeup job? She looked aged or something. Different than in her pictures on twitter or on the season.
      And I 💚Yo’s looks !
      …..just sayin’

      Ashy I hope you caught the Following. Have fun with your dad.
      😆😆🙊🙊

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        My Dad is coming tomorrow so I have 24 hours to watch 2 episodes!!
        I can see Yolanda looks tired but I’m telling you that hair cut did wonders for her-if your hair looks fab that’s all that matters!!!

        Lulu-George wants to know if you need help packing????

        • chismosa™ says:

          Lol @ George.

          I agree about her hair – for shizzle

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

          Tell George thank you but I wouldn’t want to interupt your special day!!!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            He’s insisting…he really really wants to help you…please don’t deny the old perv!!!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I haven’t watched The Following either. I am not sure if I am going back to it this season; I think the body count might be getting a little too high for me that I can’t really enjoy it.

          • Overit says:

            (Re: the Following) I was excited for season 2 to start but the twins that hang out with the dead bodies for hours after killing them are a little too much for me :(. I loved the Edgar Allen Poe link from last season, but apparently that theme is forgotten now.

            Off topic… But watched last weeks couples therapy and vanderpump rules last night, when it dawned on me…. Farrah and Stassi are like sisters from different mothers. Wonder if they’d be BFF or worst enemies??!!

  2. ladebra says:

    Morning! Watched WWHL this morning, and other than when Stassi opened her mouth, it was pretty good. If PR is not fake, Stassi should be sued for that assault. But since it’s all scripted, the slap was just more bad acting by Stassi.

    Wonder what the viewer numbers were last night for BH?

    Stay warm and feel better!

    • ladebra says:

      Thanks for the blogs BB and HH. You are right, BB, counting episodes no bueno. It looks like Andy asked on FB for questions for BH reunion. has to be happening soon.

      HH, I don’t watch, but do you think this show is a scripted 20/30-something soap opera?

      • TexasTart says:

        Carlton tweeted last week to reply to one of her adoring fans that the reunion would be the first part of February. Maybe next week?!

  3. TexasTart says:

    Good morning, just lost all I typed …grrr. I laugh at the end of the WWHL report over #get wise. Thanks for the detail I missed NMD. Thanks for the recaps BB and HydrangeaHussy!

    We got ice again here in Central Texas, oh joy the city shuts down and you can’t get the time of day from no one. :-/

  4. Lulu Team T-Rex!!!!!!!!!!!! says:

    Good morning!! One more day to go before move day!!! I’m pretty much all packed, clean as I go so Thursday won’t be to chaotic!! Thankfully Aiden has been in better spirits!!

    Who watched Sister wives?? And 90 day fiance??? And the Kardashians?

    • chismosa™ says:

      Lulu was just about to ask you how goes the move ….

      And how funny I saw this 90 Day Fiancée thing on the Soup and I wondered if anyone here caught it. So so SO funny

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

        Chismosa you have to watch it!! Its disturbing……. the only normal couple is the Columbian she’s funny. She’s a little too wild for her boyfriend though….. from my perspective her MIL is very rude to her. One day I will be a MIL I never would treat a potential DIL like that. Did you think its strange he can’t afford 1100 for rent?? He makes at least 70k. I think he’s paying his mothers bills/mortgage which is unfair. Most likely why the mother is so rude to her. She doesn’t want to lose her $$$$ son!

    • mrs peabody says:

      softly replying so no one hears me but you: I watch Sister Wives and Kardashians.

  5. Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

    I seriously can not get over this tweet from Yolanda-it’s like she’s warning Brandi and loving Brandi and not liking Brandi all at the same time…Yolanda may be a very good chess player after all…

    https://twitter.com/yolandahfoster/status/428071998083043328

    • PJ says:

      I understand why Yolanda would be upset with Brandi. Brandi needs to learn what to say and what not to say, she needs a filter. I personally think Brandi was telling the truth but she still should not have said it. But I can’t say I agree with the way Yolanda is handling it, Yolanda is supposed to be the classy one but she is not acting very classy. I do hope Brandi learns something from this though.

    • VV™ says:

      I’m more curious as to why she posted “this pic” along with message. Was something discussed that was left in cutting room? I’m sure Yofo could’ve used any picture BUT chose that one in particular…. hmmmmmmm

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        Right VV?!?!? Why a picture and why those words…I feel like she warning Brandi not to start with her “truth cannon” crap

      • ladebra says:

        But … if it was in confidence, and they had the film crew there, lol —- maybe they were whispering.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      GASP,!! Did u just bring up chess playing? Jk

  6. chismosa™ says:

    VV I agree with what you said last night

    Not enough 👑👑
    Too much 🔮🔮👻

  7. Not sure if this made it to the comments yet but here’s Jill sticking her nose in Ramona’s business

  8. chismosa™ says:

    Sorry meant to add I too was appalled bravo didn’t blur out the witch’s crude sexual hand movements. —-
    (To her mouth)

    Someone mentioned another one — Kit I think- I only saw the V motion to her mouth.

    Ughhhhhhhh. Get this woman off tv!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      When did Queen Gross do the V motion? I only saw the (ewww I can not believe I’m going to type this) jerk off motion (so gross and why women do this motion ever I will never understand-it is so gutter trash I can’t even!!) it was so totally offensive and quite disgusting-not anything I would expect watching BH. I’m no prude and I could give 2 frigs about her sex room or her stupid stripper pole parties-her behavior is gross-that’s all!!

      • Pghemtchick says:

        At the std cesspool scene iirc. It was like an underwater cam shot and then the double v lick. She’s so crude and gross. More proof money can’t by you class.

        • BB says:

          I’m glad I missed them both. Sometimes it’s good to be typing something and not seeing something. lol

        • LaineyLainey says:

          “And this is why mummy can’t let her babies attend the adult pahty”. But you can ggogle it and watch mummy online 24/7!

      • TexasTart says:

        I don’t know time-wise, Jill, but she was in the entry of her home greeting guests and I forget now exactly what that followed. Did you see how she greeted her friend and nanny? She grabbed her breast.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Ok that one I looked for —- where was jerkoff?

        I figured in a TH against Kyle and how her faith should be ashamed of Kyle — but never saw it.

        So disturbing!!

        Cesspool is right – excellent term PGH!

        • chismosa™ says:

          To be clear — I didn’t see jerkoff. I can’t believe I’m going to FF through this to find it again. Ughhh

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            She did J.O. Motion when Kyle asked about the tattoo-Carlton says “star of David..are you fuc*ing kidding me..” And the a he does J.O. Motion….gross

            • TexasTart says:

              Turns out Gretchen and Carlton speak the same language.

              The more time goes on the more MORTIFIED I would be for someone to know I watch RH.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                I thought of Gretchen right away-remember how gross that whole scene was? I think Carlton’s scene was worse-she disgusting and I don’t care if that makes me judgmental !!!

      • kit9 says:

        What’s really gross is that Carlton makes the jerking off hand motion as she’s saying Jewish sttaarrrr. Wtf does that mean?

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Reading your comment compelled me to do that motion. Eww I hate myself now.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      That was so sick, I almost vomited.

  9. Shiny says:

    Kyle on soap opera set was some of the most interesting part of the show – Not because of Kyle, but because backstage and on-set scenes were way more fun to see than anything else the “clowns” were doing.

  10. On Vanderpump Rules –

    I’m pretty convinced that Tom and Kristen have made up their entire season’s fighting to become the main focus of the show. I suspect none of their drama is real and it’ll be revealed next week when Jax spills the beans that he’s lying about his lies. Stassi isn’t in on it and will be livid. The whole thing felt like a bad soap.

    Or they could really be that disgusting. Hard to really say. I’m going with fake.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      The question of the text messages came up on WWHL-someone asked if the text that Tom read was the text that Stacci sent when she took Kristen’s phone a few episodes ago..Stacci said WWH…..

  11. VV™ says:

    Did Yolanda looked at Stacci before answering the question about Brandi last night? I think she did. I wonder what that was all about. Was Yofo trying to get amp from Stacci for the reunion?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      Ohhhh I didn’t notice a look…Yolanda is really playing games now isn’t she?!?!?!

    • VV™ says:

      amp = amo

    • chismosa™ says:

      I noticed looks.
      I think Yo was trying to be engaging with this odd character Stassi.
      And with her daughter in the audience, sort of around Stassi’s age ?

      That’s why I felt Yo a bit “off” on WWH.
      I may find the aftershow later to watch

  12. TexasTart says:

    Why didn’t Carlton have to GET IN THE POOL! It was her party afterall.

    Why is it acceptable that David Foster called the girls hens…..okay and then I hear the Fosters used the word clowns (from WWHL) but I might agree with that one, lol.

    How is it that Yolanda can call David “BABY” and that is okay with Brandi. It’s only when Joyce says it that we have to question Michael’s manhood.

    Why is it that Carlton is hung up on labels but turns around and labels people? So if Carlton dreams it and it is true and don’t question her way of life or she’ll show you and put a hex on ya’. You can not make this sh*t up!

  13. PJ says:

    Reading Brandi’s tweet again I don’t think she was calling Yolanda out for canceling last minute. I think she was just saying she thought they were closer in response to Yolanda dissing her on live TV. To emphasize that she thought they were closer Brandi said we had dinner plans just a couple of days ago which you had to cancel at the last minute. Yolanda then responded in a very overly dramatic way; because she had just dissed Lisa for last minute canceling of plans and she may have realized it made her look like a hypocrite. Then Gigi comes out and says she was really sick, so much for the privacy of a child. Goodness these people are making my head spin.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      You know…it’s interesting how ones mind can change thoughts with just a tad bit more info.

      I’m not saying I enjoy Brandi or agree with her atm. However, point in case is this. I agree that Brandi felt “hurt” (I’m not going to go into perpetual victim here) by her “friend” (Friend in quotes as I believe like I posted last night Yolo doesn’t need Brandi). So she called her out by questioning their cancelled dinner. Brandi didnt go into details. Did she know the details? Maybe. Yolo then pulled out her claws warning Brandi because a child’s health was involved.
      At that point, I was on Yo’s side. While we wouldn’t have known about the child as Yo originally said family emergency until the tweet from Yo. I gave Yo the benefit of the doubt since Brandi is a known embellisher and spills personal info.
      Now add Gigi’s tweets- Yolo’s claws out is now a lie. Gigi is no child. She is an adult. She will be 20 in April. She is living on her own a coast away from her mom. I understand she’ll always be Yolo’s child, but adult children are not off limits. Ashley from NJ took heat before she was even 18. Anyways, time to figure out where Gigi was. Did mommy drop plans to talk on the phone to her? Did she hop the private jet? Or was it truly one of Yo’s minor children sick or did Yo have a dress fitting?

      • PJ says:

        Yolanda’s response was was way too dramatic. Brandi did not mention any child at all. But when Gigi tweeted that she was sick it made Yolanda’s response seem silly. There was no child’s privacy to protect. It’s just my opinion but I think Yolanda over reacted because she had just called Lisa out for something she did herself. Thing do happen.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          Maybe Yolanda’s response was drastic but when dealing with Brandi Yolanda must know what Brandi is capable of doing-Brandi doesn’t think before she speaks or tweets-I think Yolanda wanted to make sure Brandi didn’t pull a truth cannon on her.

      • TexasTart says:

        Also perplexing about this cancelled dinner is Brandi said it was Saturday night and that was the same night of the Clive Davis pre-Grammy party that David and Yolanda attended.

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

          She didn’t say which Saturday. She also would have known why Yolanda cancelled.

          Why did Brandi have to tweet anything? Victim, victim, victim.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            I have the answer as to why Brandi HAD to tweet…BECAUSE SHES BRANDI!! It has to be all about her-the focus remains on Brandi at all times or she will go into victim mode!!

            • PJ says:

              Just because people don’t like Brandi doesn’t mean she has no feelings. I don’t tweet and who cares if I tweet or not but what Yolanda said would have hurt my feelings.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                when Brandi went out of her way last year to discuss something so private and personal about Adrienne and her CHILDREN-did people think about Adrienne’s feelings? Did they think maybe that hurt her and her family on a level that maybe we couldn’t understand? Or did they cheer for Brandi and say she was a breath of fresh air? I think more people cheered b/c they didn’t like Adrienne-and there were not a lot of people who were worried about Adrienne’s feelings-Brandi’s talks about Karma-maybe this is hers…I don’t think karma works that way-but Brandi does.

                • PJ says:

                  That’s what happens here people respond based not on logic or really on what is fair or even right but based on how they feel about someone. This has made me think about my own reactions. A while back someone made a comment here about people who supported Brandi on her blog. The person who made the comment said that people who were supporting Brandi were supporting Brandi because they didn’t like Joyce. I went to Brandi’s blog and looked at the comments where people were supporting her. It was true that many of the people who were supporting Brandi also didn’t like Joyce, although I did
                  understand their reasons for not liking Joyce it made me think. Then I started really looking at the comments on this blog and realized that sometimes people were ignoring unacceptable behavior from other cast members simply because they didn’t like Brandi. It was exactly what that comment said about those that were supporting Brandi on her blog only in reverse. It made me think. The people we comment about here are real people with real feelings and real families. I think the dislike comments are over the top sometimes, because we don’t have all the facts and maybe there is more than one way to look at something. I understand that there have been things that have been said that cause people to react negatively, I don’t support those things at all. I agree with you about Adrienne what was said about her should have been kept private and yes people reacted the way they did because they didn’t like Adrienne.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                    The things is PJ-we comment on what we see-it’s an opinion of what Bravo chooses to show us. It’s not our “job” to look for the good in Brandi-if she wants us to see that she needs to do her “job” and show us that side. I haven’t liked Brandi since I first saw her on this show-some people think Kyle is horrible-it’s perception and it’s all fair. They are entertainers-if we look at them as real people would we even want to watch the show? They aren’t being their real true selves-they are being whoever they think will get the most people to watch the show. That’s who I judge and that’s who I comment on-I’m not here to understand Brandi’s home life-I’m here to talk about HWs and their over the top antics.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                      And one more thing-what Brandi did to Adrienne last year was in mind completely unacceptable behavior-and she not only had support f her cast mates but she had a ton of support from her fans-and I think some of those fans knew she wrong in doing what she did but they didn’t care b/c they didn’t like Adrienne-brandi got away with being down right dirty for the exact behavior you wish you didn’t see in the people here.

                    • PJ says:

                      I’m not asking you to understand Brandi or anyone really. Just stating my opinion and we said it differently but we said basically the same thing people judge what the housewives do based on if they like them or not, not based on what is wrong or right. I don’t agree that these people are real entertainers though, they are real people and if they get hate it’s not hate of a character it’s hate of a person, I’m finding that a bit disturbing. I think the hate is more about the person doing the hating than the person being hated, because we are not forced to watch these people if the behavior is objectionable turn the TV off. But I do agree that Brandi needs to learn to play the game and clean it up. She is too much herself where others know how how to play to the cameras.

                • mm in oc says:

                  I didn’t feel sorry for Adrienne because she should have expected this information to come out. Because she’s rich, she thinks she above the fray, entitled, affected, etc. Reality slapped her in the head and said “snap out of it”.

                  to me it doesn’t matter that Brandi spouted out that news. It would have come out at some point from somewhere – that’s not something that only 1-2 people know, but several people. Particularly in LA, everyone is looking to make a name for themselves (see Bernie the Chef). Nothing is off limits. Welcome to the Jungle!

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                    PJ-I can assure you that my dislike of Brandi has zero to do with me and everything to do with how she conducts herself. I’m not jealous of Brandi-I don’t want her life-I’m not envious of her-I’m quite happy with the person I’am-I love to watchtower here silly shows and I love commenting with people here-there isn’t more to the story-my dislike is not a reflection of me-it’s a reflection of Brandi’s behavior on the show on social media and on what I see and read in the press. I shouldn’t have to turn off my TV when I can just come here and complain about a HW that I don’t like. It’s not life altering it’s just TV-Brandi knows the game-she’s good with it until people call her on her lies and her silly behavior. I don’t think Brandi really cares that I don’t like her-I don’t think it makes one tiny difference in her life-but if I loved her-well now that she would want to know-too bad for Brandi that’s not the way it goes.

                    • PJ says:

                      I never suggested you were jealous of Brandi. Why would I? We are both free to have our opinions. I don’t like Brandi much myself but I also don’t hate her. You said you don’t like her, but you didn’t say you hated her. I think some people go overboard with the dislike or hate to me that says more about them than the person they hate.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                      I knew after I typed the jealous thing that I should have been more clear-I know you didn’t say that was how I felt. I was just saying my dislike of her isn’t about me-it’s about her.
                      I don’t really hate anyone-especially someone I don’t even know-but I don’t feel bad about the fact that I talk about Brandi or the other HW and I kind of get the feeling that you think we should feel bad about it. If that’s not the case-my apologies for misunderstanding.

                    • PJ says:

                      No not about talking about her obviously people are going to talk. But going overboard with hatred.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                  • Powell says:

                    mm she should have expected it to come out. Why go on a reality show and hide info. If you’re going to hide info don’t do reality tv cuz the info will always come out. What Brandi did was horrific on all levels. I felt bad for A & P that it came out because it was their biz and only they should have told their kids. No one else. Not some idiot on tv. But you know given time it was coming out one day by a tabloid or blogger that loves to help hurt people. I really don’t understand why A & P wouldn’t have told their kids at the age they were. They could comprehend how they came to be.

                • Powell says:

                  I liked Brandi first sticking up for herself w/A & P. But I hated what she did to A & P and their kids. That was unnecessary and disgusting. She could’ve said other things about A&P. If someone says something about her kids she’s effing all over the place and crying don’t talk about her kids, don’t say things that will cause her not to be able to take care of her kids. Blah, blah, blah.

      • This is real time. Gigi is in New York so Saturday night she could not be very ill in BH… Yolanda said something like it was a child’s privacy involved so back off. Perhaps Gigi was in BH and traveled to NY with her mom for WWH yesterday… It was another tweet of Yolanda saying she was on her way to NY with half her Blog written for this week’s episode.

        Brandi is learning she can’t just spill others people intimate details.

        PJ- I feel bad I wanted Brandi fired from Bravo. I have never done anything to pursue a person losing her job… Thank you for your previous comments, that helped me to realize these are real people on a fake reality show.

      • shepurrrs says:

        Whatever the situation with the “sick child” was, it was not bad enough for Yo & her King to miss Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy party which was held on Saturday night. Yo even tweeted a pic of them on the red carpet.

      • Powell says:

        What I don’t get is that these ladies get so bent out of shape if dinner is cancelled, if someone can’t come to whatever they’re doing. Can’t people cancel and have something more important to do sometimes? I can see questioning things if people cancelled all the time or can never come to whatever you’re having. After all these seasons it’s been mostly Kim that didn’t go to many things. There have been times when Yo didn’t go to something cuz she had a doc appointment or David was attending something and she went w/him. In “real life” people can’t go to everything cuz they have responsibilities and commitments.

        • I Need A Life! says:

          I don’t think this is about dinner plans being cancelled. All the Housewives are distancing themselves from Brandi. Who wants to be associated with a silly woman who jokes about child molestation. Funny how Andy talks about Apollo, etc., and yet I don’t know if he’s addressed the elephant in the room. Brandi.

  14. NYC Mama says:

    Lisa’s blog is up (as is Brandi’s). this puts her relationship with Yolanda in a nutshell. “I haven’t known Yolanda that long, just vaguely before last season, but I had spent many, many weekends with her children and Mohamed so there was an immediate connection. It’s a shame to question that.

    I don’t think friendships should change because someone has pressures that can’t be avoided. Maybe if cameras had been following me in my pursuit of constructing this new restaurant some would have a better understanding. So there we have it once again I am in trouble! “

    • PJ says:

      The only thing I question about what Lisa said in her blog is that she had to go to city hall to get permits. It is usually the builder that goes to get the permits because they are the ones with the license to get them, not the person commissioning the project. That’s what you pay your builder or project manager for. I question whether Lisa is using this as an excuse.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I agree with you that generally the contractor is the one who applies for the permits as far as building something to ‘code’.

        Although, I know some cities or areas that have a ‘historical’ area, also have Planning commissions and design review committees, I think in those situations it’s usually the owner and/or designer who would go before the board for approval. That could be what Lisa is referring to.

        • PJ says:

          The permit is to do the work you have to be properly licensed to get a permit, building to code is something that needs to be done to be able to occupy the property and it requires inspections as the work proceeds.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            Yes, I only have ‘viewer knowledge’ because shows like Flipping Out as far as that stuff goes. 😀

            In real life, I am actually stressing out since our HOA is painting next year so there are ordering everyone to do a bunch of repairs on things like our fences…balconies and wooded patios. The one contractor (the only one we have talked to so far but who seems to do a lot of the work in the development) said it would be $6.500 to tear down and rebuild a 6 foot fence, tear down (but not rebuild) our patio cover (it’s basically like a big wooden awning) and to tear down and replace the railing of our balcony, plus 4ft of dry wall repair. That seems like A LOT of money to me, so we are going to get a second opinion but the contractor who put the bid in said that they already have the permits ( I guess for the development instead of individual residences) because the balcony railing is a structural change since the city change the code (?) and have the ‘plans’ already approved (since I guess it’s interchangeable because all the units are basically the same,

            But I do know there is some sort of committee/board in West Hollywood depending on where something is that wants approval on designs

            • PJ says:

              You need to find out if you have the right to hire your own contractor. There will be certain requirements your contractor has to meet. They need to be licensed with insurance both comp and liability plus they most likely have to submit plans. If you can hire your own contractor it doesn’t matter if the other one has permits or not. But maybe your association has hired the contractor already. Find out and don’t give anyone any money or sign anything until you are satisfied.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                Thanks PJ, I was hoping you would reply since you seem to be in the know.

                We are free to pick any contractor, although we do know that this particular one is in good standing as far as the HOA is concerned. He is licensed. They do have the plans submitted and approved already…not specifically for us but as per city code and the HOA specifications ( I am sure you know how HOA’s are…they get a lot of say on how the outside of someones dwelling looks and what owners can and can not do).

                I am just gutted over the amount tho, we don’t have that kind of money on hand. DH will have to take out a loan.

                • PJ says:

                  Try getting a few bids just to set your mind at ease as to the reasonableness of the price that the first contractor gave you. If all the other bids are significantly lower try negotiating with the approved contractor, if that’s the one you feel comfortable with. If all the bids are around the same amount that may be the best price you will get. You have to feel comfortable with the contractor that’s as important as price. Has this contractor already done work for neighbors if so then ask them if they were happy with the work and take a look at what he did. Why is this contractor approved by the HOA? Have they used him in the past, if so can you speak to the president of the HOA and find out what they liked about this contractor? I hope this all works out for you.

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    Hi PJ, all I know is that this contractor has been the go to guy as far as things that the HOA needs to pay for, such as the roofing and other work for the last 10 years. I don’t know if that involves some sort of kick back…or that he is the cheapest guy…or maybe not the cheapest but the one who doesn’t it right-the cheapest.

                    He did some work for my neighbors before and is also removing their patio cover/awning and repairing their balcony. They speak highly of him. They didn’t tell me how much they were being charged but they didn’t blink when I told them how much we were quoted and seemed to say ‘that’s about right’.

                    Thank you…it really sucks because it’s a financial strain. Lat year the HOA sent notices saying that work would need to be done and they were having a punch list made out. Then all of a sudden they send each home own pictures of the damages to their units…and say the work has to been done within 2 months. Even the contractor said that is not realistic, given the amount of units there are..and how many licensed contractors are in South Orange county who can start right away.

                    • PJ says:

                      I’m sorry it is daunting to hire a contractor. My husband has been a contractor for many years and he is a project manager so I never have to worry because if we need someone he hires them and then supervises them. If people are happy with this guy he may be your best choice. I don’t know. But I do know that is a lot of money to have to pay all at once. I wish I could help you more. Let me know how it works out.

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      Thanks hon, I wish you lived by us. I could just use your DH 🙂

      • Pghemtchick says:

        I’m curious if that is because the property in question was soon to be lawsuit fodder. Remember August 14, 2013, Lisa and Ken were named in a lawsuit from Lulu Restaurant Group. It alleged fraud, breach of contract, deceit and unfair competition.

        I’m confused how Lisa and Ken were involved when you look at the details. Lulu group signed a lease in ’09 with the owners to develop a sports bar there. They failed to come up with the $500,000 initial deposit. In February 2013, they saw a Pump lounge sign. So they sued Lisa and Ken who had already been leasing the property 2 months in Feb. 7-8 months at lawsuit time. Seems the issue is with the owner. I mean 4 years between original lease and lack of payment-I’d rent it out too.

        If there were feelers being sent around the restaurant world, Lisa had a heads up and took matters into her own hands. For some reason I recall tweets about this being a difficult process this time.

        Why can’t they be working as their own GC?

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          They could, provided they have a contractors license.

          • PJ says:

            Which I doubt very much that they do. You can only get a property owners permit for residential property that you own and reside in, not commercial. Lisa may have gone to city hall to argue about permits but I question this.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

              Lisa may not have been getting “building” permits-she have been getting “zoning” permits. My BIL buys and rents and sells buildings and he is always going to get permits-he doesn’t build-just buys and rents and whatever.

              • PJ says:

                I think on her blog Lisa specifically said building permits. This property was probably already zoned as commercial. Lisa would know the difference.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                  She didn’t specify on her blog-she was “groveling for permits”.

                  • PJ says:

                    I’ll look again, but the property was probably already zoned. At this point it’s speculation what she was or wasn’t doing but usually her builder/project manager would be doing this

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

                  No she didn’t. And this is a nightclub with extended hours and alcohol. There are more hoops to jump through.

              • kit9 says:

                There’s no way I believe Lisa is personally dealing with building permits. I call bs on that. She’d have her contractor doing that. Next thing, she’s going to claim she’s down at Home Depot picking out piping.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Hi PJ, do you think Lisa is lying? To what end?

        • PJ says:

          I never used the word lying. I said I question that she was at city hall arguing about permits. I stated my reason for questioning but if course I could easily be wrong.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I never said you used the word “lying”…I asked if you THINK she is lying. “Do you think” implies you didn’t say it, but i am wondering,since you didnt use the word, are you thinking she is lying? I want to know what you’re thinking. Your thoughts on this subject intrigue me. I wonder why you would question it,.even after reading your stated reason. It still doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t see why it’s so questionable,…i wonder is it because you don’t like Lisa? And just to clarify, I’m not saying you said the words expressing that you don’t like Lisa. I am wondering if you don’t like Lisa. Sometimes, a question is formed in my mind that have little to do with the exact words posted here, I’m funny that way.

            Not meant as an attack, PJ. Just asking. Answer if you care to,..don’t feel obligated.

            • PJ says:

              I didn’t take it as an attack at all. I don’t know if she outright lies or not but I also don’t think she is totally honest either. Like the infamous faint. My husband has severe asthma and before he was properly diagnosed and treated he fainted several times. I can tell you it isn’t pretty the way Lisa fainted. First of all you go down face down not backwards and you crash down into whatever is in front of you. The backward faint where you go down easy isn’t real. That’s not to say she wasn’t feeling ill I think she was but I’m not sold on the faint.

              Secondly there was the party Kim gave. Kim said that Lisa told her she was going out of town but would come if she got back in time. Lisa did get back in time but couldn’t admit what she’d was doing. Lisa insists she was working but she was having dinner. Then there is the cast saying Lisa is only friends with them on camera–who knows about that one.

              But as for getting permits usually a person like Lisa has a team running her projects and doesn’t need to beg city hall for permits. Perhaps she really did but I just questioned what she said that’s all.

              As for liking Lisa I don’t actually dislike her. But I have a feeling that she is really calculating and that what we see on camera is Lisa playing to the cameras. Mind you some of these ladies would do well to learn from Lisa about how to put a good foot forward.

              • NYC Mama says:

                When did Lisa say she would go to Kim’s party? Once she rsvp’d her regrets and sent a gift it was done. There was no reason for Lisa to travel all the way to the valley where Kim lives just to appease Kim who never shows up for anything and it was a done deal. She was entitled to come home, eat in her own restaurant and do whatever she pleased.

                • PJ says:

                  Kim said that Lisa said she would come if she got back on time. That’s not the same as saying you can’t come.

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

                    Lisa said she thought the party was in the afternoon. When she came back, it was no longer afternoon.

                    Kim did RSVP yes to Pandora’s wedding and no – showed. That’s tacky.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Ok, i think thats a yes. yes-ish. 😉 And it’s true, Lisa is a smart lady, the others should take notes, Breaker one nine…you get a big 10-4 from me on that one, little buddy.

              • kit9 says:

                That ‘faint’ get hilariously more fake everytime I see it. Lisa’s head is clearly being held up so it doesn’t smack down hard.

                • ladebra says:

                  Really? Because every time I see her faint, it clearly looks like a faint to me. And the only reason she didn’t hit her head is because her partner was holding onto her hand as she dropped and tried to keep her from dropping like a sack of rocks.

                  • PJ says:

                    The thing is people faint forward face down not backward.

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      PJ, you with your absolutes…there is NOT only one way to fall when you faint. Some people fall forward, some fall back, some fall sideways, some walk a little bit first…Please to enjoy: http://www.killsometime.com/videos/9091/People-Fainting-Compilation

                    • PJ says:

                      I have never seen anyone faint backward. Lisa’s faint looked like a screen faint to me. I take exception to “my absolutes” a lot of people here state as absolute fact things they have no way of knowing. I have at least seen people faint.

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      So you’re sticking to it, huh? That people only faint forward? No wiggle room on that one. I guess you don’t want to watch the video showing people fainting every which way? It’s video evidence. Sorry I offended you but it’s what came to mind and I was teasing you. I’ll try not to tease you like that again. Try. I said, I’ll TRY. No absolutes.

                    • PJ says:

                      People don’t fall the way Lisa did. Your face goes pale your body goes limp and you go smack down. Not rigid and flat back, that’s a Hollywood fall. I will watch the video. I didn’t realize it was a video.

    • kit9 says:

      So NOW Lisa is confirming what Kyle said earlier this season but Lisa was then denying. So, once again, Lisa isn’t truthful. I remember them fighting about this and Kyle was hurt that Lisa backed Yolanda’s version and they got into it over how close Yolanda and Lisa are. So well well well, turns out Lisa, despite arguing the contrary, says she only ‘vaguely’ knew Yolanda now.

    I spent hours on Sunday afternoon having a blast. It’s like having magazines of only the things you want to look at and like making scrap books without any mess on the dining room table to clean up.

    So thanks for introducing me to it – and curses for giving me a new additional hobby 😉

    Can always count on this group to broaden my knowledge and horizons. (Had no clue what Carlton was doing with her gestures til you all explained it……)

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I love me some Pinterest. Every weekend my husband asks me “what are you making from Pinterest now?” It could be crafts or supper. Hopefully I won’t get them mixed up!

      • Powell says:

        Husker I thought about you the other day when I was on. I saw this baby bib it was a bib and apron combined. It was really cute.

    • mm in oc says:

      First experience on pinterest was about 10 hours and a terrible headache from staring at the computer screen so long. LOVE IT!!

    • Powell says:

      I love Pinterest. I’m on there. ppdee is me. 🙂

      • mm in oc says:

        OK Powell, I’m now following a few of your boards! You have a TON of them. I need to get to work.

    Jimmy McNichol showing up to say hi to Kim….was it just me, or did it seem like he was undressing her with his eyes while chewing gum like a maniac? Maybe it is just me, but he acted like someone I would get the hell away from! 😮

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I read that he is married which made the whole thing even more creepy to me. Why would a married man look backwards and wonder why something didn’t happen 30 years ago.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        Perhaps he knew if he interacted with Kim he would get some camera time so he just brought up whatever came to mind or whatever he thought would ensure some time on TV…maybe him Kim talked about before they even got to the place?

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          He just looked so odd. I don’t think he has aged well at all.

          My DH also couldn’t believe how old Kim looked, he thinks she must have been doing way more than just boozing to look so haggard.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            He hasn’t aged well…most of my teenage celebrity loves have not aged well…sad!!

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I have to say that Scott Baio and Matt Dillon didn’t turn out so bad.

              Charlie Sheen looks like a meth head with rotting teeth.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                Matt Dillon!! I agree-he has aged well-Scott Baio annoys me and he always looks tired. Charlie was no teen love of mine-I was getting older during those years and left my celeb crushes behind for “real” love!!

  18. NMH says:

    Juicy blog today with all that extra backstory. Loved it! Only comment I’ll make today is how unbelievably evil Stassi Schroeder is. Major parent fail in my opinion. I don’t believe she would be satisfied even if Kristen at that confrontation had taken a butter knife to her wrists right there and then. Don’t get me wrong, I’m on no one’s side on this as all these young people suck.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I have to wonder how Lisa could still employ Stassi after she assaulted another staff member. As I have said all along, the shenanigans that go on that I read about on VPR makes me never want to eat at SUR.

      • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

        Isn’t that trash heap her daughter’s BFFL? I wouldn’t be worrying about suing anyone, I would have had the police there pressing assault charges. You can bet if someone slapped the trash heap in the mouth she would have been doing so. I don’t usually watch that show because I have an irrational hate for all of them. The very sounds of their voices makes nail on a chalkboard seem pleasant to me.

      • VV™ says:

        Stassi moved to NY a long time ago with her boyfriend.

    • mm in oc says:

      I love the part where Tom was grilling Jax on the extent of their indiscretion. Condums, BJs, etc. Made me think that maybe Jax has an STD.

  19. Lander (SC Girl) says:

    Good morning ladies
    I wanted to take a moment this morning to address the Wicca spell; God thing. Last night the blog had so much action and I did not want it to get lost in the over 600 comments. I also did not think Bravo would post my comment under Joyce’s blog.

    I love that Joyce and her husband had a Rabbi come and bless them and the property that God has given them to be a good stewards over. I am a Messianic Jew and this is just what needed to be done. God says that he needs you to pray. God does not me just general prayer. God means he needs for you to pray out loud specific things. If you need for something ask for it. If someone is hurting you pray for him to protect you and send you blessings, pray for a hedge of protection to be around you and you family, pray blessings over your family/children………Be specific.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Hi Lander,

      I am Irish Catholic and I remember how one time it was very common when a parishioner bought a new home fora priest to come over and bless it, although it doesn’t seem to be very common anymore. Is it still common in the Jewish community?

      I am wondering Joyce and Micheal had their house blessed in direct response to Calton’s threat of a ‘hex’ or if it just serendipitous. because they had a friend over who was a Rabbi. In the same fashion that if they had a meal, they would probably ask him to lead the prayer.

      I personally don’t think Micheal was really sick. I think Joyce is playing the game and having a go at Carlton….so she can call her out for being ‘an evil witch’.

      • Lander (SC Girl) says:

        I would not put anything past a Housewife, LOL.

        But to answer your question. The Jewish community have them be Messianic (I believe that Jesus is God) or not believe in praying prayers and blessings and being specific. The Bible tells you to do this.

        I also come from a Catholic back round and the church (all types) especially the Catholic church use to pray a lot of blessings.

        Just a funny side note, as I was writing these comments my computer shut down twice, LOL.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Speaking of home blessings..

          Do Messianic Jews have Mezuzahs by their door too? ( I couldn’t remember what they were called, I had to look it up).

          I remember at my granny’s house in Belfast, by the door there was a little holy water font that was on the wall by the front door and we were expected to bless ourselves when we were leaving the house. Although, I have never been to a home in North America where someone used them.

          LOL- about your computer shutting down. I am sure you are fine…but I am sending blessings to you 😀

          • NYC Mama says:

            Messianic Jews are not part of any of the Jewish sects (Orthodox, Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionists, etc.). They are Christians who follow the tenets of Judaism but also believe in Jesus. A Mezzah doesn’t have holy water. It has a piece of scripture inside blessing the dwelling.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Hi NYC, I knew that Mezzah’s didn’t have holy water 🙂

              Correct me if I am wrong, I thought they were kind of like a good luck sort of charm and you are suppose to touch them. That’s why I kind of compared to the holy water font in my grannies house, as it they both serve a way to help protect the believer, 🙂

              • NYC Mama says:

                🙂 LOL. Hi RR sorry my post wasn’t very clear. I knew you knew just put it out there for those who didn;t. Yes, many religious will kiss the mezzuzah before entering a room.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  LOL- Gotcha.

                  I have usually seen them on an outside door but I remember seeing a show where a family had them at the thresholds of bedroom doors. Although, I am not sure how common the latter practice is.

                • Lander (SC Girl) says:

                  Sorry Y’all I had to go buy water and supplies. It would be that my state is going to be hit with a epic storm……..Play crazy scary hex music now. But yes I do have a mezzuzah.
                  Thank you NYC Mama for filling in for me

      • I am Catholic and attend Greek orthodox Church and our Bible is both, Jewish and Christian. So we do believe in both. Jesus asks us to pray for our enemies. I believe the best protection for Joyce’s family is to pray for Carlton.

  20. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Guest what? It’s freakin coldddd out. It feels like -10 w/the wind chill. I’m not made for this. ;( . Some please add tear emojis. Let me go make another cup of hot tea. You all have a great day. 🙂

  21. I wanted to take a shower after watching HW and VR! DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY! Carlton makes me want to hose myself down…maybe I should watch while I take a bath so I can wash the ick off asap! The hand gesture at the pool was so gross. Really? Again, you excused your kids from the adult party, but it was filmed! All your kids’ friends’ moms watched this last night and do you really think their moms are gonna want their kids at your house??? Just disturbing! Her story line is being shocking and overly sexual, yet she is offended when someone questions her religion that I believe is created by her to be shocking??? I don’t think Kyle was being calculating when she asked, I think she saw the tattoo at a quick glance and was shocked (which is the purpose of it anyway!) I liked seeing Kim with her fans although she is still super boring and has no storyline…nice to see her appreciated and appreciating others! Good for her!
    As for Yoyo…why the hell would Gigi want to hang up stupid art from these women that don’t even know her? I think it was just a way to get filming at her house. As for the “spell”…ick. Carlton can claim she does not “dabble in the dark” but when you elude to casting spells you cannot be offended when people believe you…again, I think she stinks of BS, but that is just me. Brandi is still a hot mess with a broken/not broken hand. And, if Lisa wanted to mother me, I would totally be cool with that! I would LOVE it! Just sayin’!
    As for VP Rules…Stassi is that mean girl in HS. She was prob head cheerleader and prom queen and also threatened anyone that thought to vote against her! This whole show is so similar to the movie Mean Girls that I hope Tina Fey is getting a stipend! Jax is gross….just disgusting! He is just so full of disease and ick. And Kristen is prob the most unattractive girl on the show so I am not sure how she is still on the island cause SUR seems to only like “Pretty”. Anyhoo…
    The Prez will be making his annual speech this evening and I am glad the Shahs are in Turkey so I have something to watch! Nothing against the Prez, I will just watch it rehashed tomorrow on the news! LOL! Have a great day everyone! It is -6 in Northern Ohio today so the kids are home and we are going out to lunch! Stay warm kiddos!

    • mm in oc says:

      I absolutely HATE State of the Union. It’s really only a 5 minutes speech. However, since everyone must clap every 10 seconds, it turns into a 1.5 hours. #wasteoftime

  22. MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

    I would probably come as no surprise that I’ve basically signed off of the Bravo formula. To the point I don’t even care if I see the shows anymore. The entertaining part for me has become watching everyone here, pick this stuff apart. Anymore, I watch just to see what it is you’re all talking about. I don’t give a baboon’s bald butt about any of these HoWives, their businesses. their husbands, their pets, or their kids, or who any of them get along with.

    The only one I’m remotely enjoying this season is Kim. She’s the one I originally tuned in to see when this show began. Until the show began, I didn’t even know she had sisters.. So, therefore, the only part of the actual show I enjoyed last night, was Kim’s scene. I can do without the dusting picture frames or reorganizing drawers scenes but when she’s off on her own, doing her own thing, the show seems more enjoyable to me.

    • TexasTart says:

      That’s interesting that Kim was the original draw to the show. I don’t think she should be on this show, but what really stood out to me last night is that she was in her element with her fans! I don’t think we ever see her where she fits in – unless they’re scenes with family members, she’s been out of place to me. She was truely happy last night without crying over one of her kids, so that was indeed refreshing.

      • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

        I don’t think the show has done her any favors. I don’t think being there with her sister has either.. She’s always been the sad clown of the cast.

      • I love seeing Kim with her fans last night. She seemed so confident & happy. I wish there were more scenes like that, instead of the constant back-stabbing & bickering.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I love watching her TH’s as I think she is pretty funny in them. Can’t stand watching any part of Yolanda, I think she is ridiculous and did she call her husband baby? OMG. She overdoes the caring mother wife part as far as I’m concerned, who talks like her anyway. Brandi, 2 words grow up, Carlton 1 word freak, Lisa, Kyle and Joyce, really no problem with any of them.

    • I Need A Life! says:

      I had Wendy Williams in the background this morning. Missed the first few minutes, and might try to pick up a rerun tonight. She said the same thing you’re saying, Mel. I think she said something like, “I’m not reporting on the Housewives. Will report on a book I’m reading.” The Vanderpump kids sent her over the edge.

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

    So Joyce and her husband go to Carlton’s “std cesspool” lol and he goes home and gets violently ill? Isn’t that the normal response after a party like this? That’s not a hex, that just a filthy party.

  26. TexasTart says:

    When watching pre-grammy red carpet interviews, there was Paris Hilton and when she laughed, they way she put her head back to laugh, and the sound of her laugh was so very much like Kyle, just a bit softer. I know they’re related, but it was at that moment that I realized how much their mouths, voice and some mannerisms were similar. Funny that I never noticed that before.

  27. TexasTart says:

    I’ve been having a really hard time on the blog this morning, because I dreamt that you guys were talking about me behind my back. 👿

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Oh hey is that a new tat! I mean… Hiyas! 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      But what about when the lion headed mouse ran by, and then we were all 8 yrs old again. (That’s how my dreams go)

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        Lainey your dreams are trippy…come to my dreams where we are all perfect and happy as hell…and no one has a lion head!!!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I actually had a dream last night that I saw the Publisher’s Clearing House prize patrol outside my home and they had this big check for me with a 1 and a bunch of zeros after it.
          I was so overjoyed because I thought I won their current (and real life contest) to receive a million dollars a year for life..but then I was told I just won a one time prize of a 100k…so then I got sad. Then after a moment of feeling sorry for myself…I realized it’s still 100k that I didn’t have 10 minutes ago and was grateful again.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            That’s a nice dream…better than Lainey’s with the lion head…

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Coincidentally, I have been talking sh!t about Carlton all morning….and at some point had a little (TMI warning)……..bout of diarrhea But given that I am well stocked up in toilet paper, I won’t let it deter me.

  28. Well I for one think that Yofo distancing herself publicly from Brandi and now all this Twitter stuff is great timing….The Reunion should be great…. Brandi will spill all the tea she knows about Yofo and Lisa and anyone else that was stupid enough to confide in her!!!!
    #DreanTeamIsANightmare

  29. VV™ says:

    BB,
    Thanks for the recap! I just finished reading. I am counting too. I hate it that they turned RHOBH into RHONJ West.

    Andy Wiedenhorn has twins. One of them, is engaged to Brooke (Kim’s daughter). Not sure if the other twin is dating Farrah (Kyle’s daughter). I’ve seen pics of them together.

  30. TexasTart says:

    Lainey – did you notice when filming outside of Carlton’s house there was a Deep Eddy Vodka van? That’s a homegrown Austin company, even had Austin, Texas printed in the van. Of course, there are an unusually high number of homegrown brews in Austin, but I wonder if they know the Gebbias.

  31. Powell says:

    Yo if Brandi can out her kid bed wetting on Twitter and out A & P surrogacy why oh why would you think she’d spare your child? Brandi doesn’t care.

    • PJ says:

      Yo’s daughter is grown up and outed herself as *shocked gasp* being sick. Oh my goodness it’s a good thing Yo stepped in and prevented Brandi from violating that bit of her child’s privacy.

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

      This is a person who thinks child molestation jokes are funny.

      • PJ says:

        So therefore she is guilty of any and every vile thing that can be thought of and never tells the truth about anything?

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

          No, it means she has no boundaries, no sense of what is right to say and what is not.

  32. I’m so slow sometimes!!! It took my second cup of coffee to realize that Brandi’s tweet about showing that you are my friend was YoFo’s tag line, LOL!! She was doing her passy assy victim routine again and then Lisa pops up and answers, makes it even funnier!!!

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

    Nancy is spot on…… Peeps, please reply here with your guess for Brandi’s next crisis.

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

      Sick relative? Well she pulls this one every month.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      She’s already in full crisis mode-she’s hurt disappointed and her son has a fever…

  34. Jules says:

    Joyce’s husband was violetly ill from the Fatburgers!?!

  35. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Has anyone seen the previews on Bravo for next week…the “Don’t you dare command me”. Carlton looks like a complete fool. Honestly, I don’t even know how she can keep up the charade of mock indignation.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      She thinks she’s going to come off as a bad ass chick but she comes off as an idiot-she has no reason to dislike Kyle and she knows-she decidedly to hate Kyle b/c someone crapped in her bathroom and and Kyle “ewww gross”…really???? She is the most annoying HW EVER!!! She’s foolish-Kyle said “tell her” Carlton has a fit b/c Kyle called her HER!! I can’t!!!!!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        Oh this is the best-Carlton starts getting nasty and Kyle says “please it’s my husbands birthday party” Carlton says “I don’t f-ing care” Kyle says “I can see that you don’t f-ing care” …Carlton replies…, ” why would you say that I don’t care..” Wait….what? Did Carlton miss what came out of her mouth????

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Maybe the person should have lit a hustler candle.

      • kit9 says:

        And, this also shows that Carlton’s husband is an idiot, too. Referring to someone as ‘her’ is dismissive? Or whatever he said. WHAT the EFF are these morons talking about?

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          Haha-the husband!! I wonder if he will get called out for going after Kyle-I doubt it-Kyle isn’t a poor single mother!!

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            It’s actually kind of funny because I had flash backs to my childhood when I was trying to plead my case to my dad about how I was right and my mother was wrong…and would say something like “Well she bla bla bla” and my mom would snap and scream “Who are you calling she….what am I? The dogs dinner?”. Of course, I didn’t have an agenda by using a pronoun…but dear old mom (RIP) didn’t let me away with too much.

            But in the context of Kyle asking Lisa to explain the joke, it was so completely innocent.

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

      Politically incorrect post warning.

      I half expect the air around her to darken, her hair to blow back violently, and her voice to replicate itself…..”Don’t you command me!” and then all the furniture to rise up and explode.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        It practically does!! She goes for the gusto in this scene!! It’s quite comical!!

  36. TexasTart says:

    Yolanda looked fabulous in her swimsuit at the pool party, hard to deny that. And we don’t see Carlton drooling over her. Come to think of it, her HW guests were far more attractive than the models she hired to be painted naked and ride the stripper poles! As much as I couldn’t stand Adrienne, at least she hired better naked talent. And the painted ladies jumped in the pool! Their body makeup was fouling up the water something awful!

    And over at the land of lemons; Yolanda went up and down those stairs with ease while her teenage daughter, Carlton and Brandi couldn’t seem to hang with the hike up to the patio. That’s all, I just thought it was funny.

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

      Let’s not forget she’s sick too.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I want Yo’s body!
      Maybe I need to get wise and do a cleanse. I hate paprika or whatever red powder goes in it though

      • HuskerHuny says:

        I never thought that paprika had a flavor. Just something you put on top of deviled eggs (sorry Carlton) for decoration. I must buy the cheap stuff!

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          • I Need A Life! says:

            Beyoncé claims it’s her vegan diet that helped her look so hot. The problem is, if you’re in the Midwest and freezing, your body is craving carbs and meat. Like bears hibernating.

              Interesting …….

              Well how long do people do the cleanse for. ?

              God this was discussed probably the 1st say Yo ever entered the show ,… I’m behind.
              Will google

              Thanks all ^^^^^

  37. HuskerHuny says:

    Just read in the local daily paper that a suspicious box was found in the middle of the street two blocks from my house last night around 10:30 p.m. They asked people who lived nearby to go to their basements until the bomb squad got there and they got the all-clear. No one came to my door. I was in bed at the time. I’m trying to decide if I would have gone to my basement or if I would have gone back to bed. Hmmmmmm . . .

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      Well that’s a little scary!!!

      • Baby Jesus, HH! That sounds scary!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Yes, I am grateful it seems like a false alarm.

          • HuskerHuny says:

            Haven’t seen an official report from the bomb squad yet. They were going to take the box to a lab for testing, but they say what was in the box certainly looked like bomb material. Not sure where on the street this box was found, but there is an elementary school on it.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Oh wow. that’s scary.
              I remember once the I-5 was a stand still because near Pico they found some sort of denitrator or something, it belonged to the Marine core and is likely fell off the back of a truck. But at the time everyone was panicked.

  38. Could someone explain this to me:

    Brandi said in her Blog that she did not go to the doctor for her broken hand because she had no Health Insurance… Wasn’t her injury considered “work accident”? She was filming at the time of her injury….Bravo can’t pay for the injuries of their workers?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      She could have went to an urgent care place and it wouldn’t have been soooo much money-I think she is using the insurance thing as an excuse. She wants to say Lisa was annoying her about her hand so she needed a really good excuse as to why she wouldn’t get it checked out-I’m not buying the no insurance thing-she’s not broke!!

      • She said she didn’t want to spend money in her hand because she has two kids and she could use that money on them…. What about Bravo’s responsibility to their workers?

      • Dixie says:

        Wasn’t that the day after she fell out drunk on a date? I bet if this would have been a WC claim she would have gone to the ER. I am questioning if it was a work place injury.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I mentioned the last time this was brought up that my daughter was burned by a hairdresser dropping a curling iron on her back when she was on set for the bridge promo shots. They drove her to the hospital paid for the consultation, the scrip, even paid for her follow up appointment. But when it happened, she cried out in pain, she didn’t pretend that nothing happened like Brandi who pretended that she was fine. How could production help her if she pretended quite vehemently that nothing was wrong!!? I kept thinking, jeepers why don’t the camera people do something!?? Maybe they believed that she was fine? I think they should have would have helped her, had she told someone. I don’t get why they (production) didn’t help her.

      • Thank you Lainey. It is what I thought, maybe she is too stubborn to not accept help from her employers. She is making Bravo look like they are not helping employees .IMO. I want to empathize with her, but then she is lying in her blog…

      • chismosa™ says:

        Yeah Lainey thank god for your daughter.
        Brandi is off

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Great point. Here’s a thought, why do certain shows require or have medics on standby yet there wasn’t one here?

        As for being fine, I don’t know Cali stuff but I do know what happened to me. I once got a concussion at work. I was drying our truck took a step while bent over to get a wet spot and stood up. I cracked my head off the air conditioner. It was hard enough to knock me out against the truck for a few moments. Even tho I was bleeding and had different sized pupils and was rambling nonsense to my partner and dispatcher they let me drive home. My mom freaked out and snapped so they sent the ambulance to pick me up for an Er trip. I was then taken to the main base where the second in charge met me at 3 am. He made me wrote a statement. After which he looked at my head/eyes/etc and sent me home. I was scared I was losing my job. I went to the comp panel doc the next day and even tho vomitting, dizzy, killer headache convinced him to sign off on me to work. I wasn’t allowed to drive that night at work. My partner and dispatcher both were suspended. The 2nd in command let me read my statement 2 days later. I wrote the same sentence over and over again for half a page. It was crazy.

        But I was “fine” and covered. The driving and just letting go opened them up to liability if I wrecked etc. crazy times.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      This was brought up by our star Plaiviewsue on twitter earlier which led to some researching. The first reply Sue got was Brandi’s BFF Jezi saying Bravo doesn’t offer it. Then further pointing out Brandi is smarter than most think and she’s an independent contractor.

      Here’s the thing. I’m no legal eagle, but independent contractors are considered employees under the law if they meet certain criteria like: do they have a say in the final product? Do they control filming times? Who pays for venues, cars, etc. there’s another standard as well that basically says would the product exist without them. An example used on one site was independently contracted clowns at a circus. One is hurt and applies for comp. A judge ruled that the clown was an employee due to the end product no clowns no circus.
      Well if I understood that right, no housewife no show. The women are paid and Bravo/production supplies venues, times, and cars. The women aren’t involved in editing. That makes me believe they are employees thus must be covered. Also, a few sites say that production companies are required to carry work comp insurance on indepent contractors in the event they lack a policy. Work comp is something that can’t be waived by a line in a contract that says “you can’t sue us if hurt” etc. Oh they also have the reoccurring status that pushes them towards employee. It’s not like they’re on Survivor and it’s only 30 days etc.
      Unless things are different in Cali, she should have been covered (by my understanding of the blogs/sites I read)

      • Thanks for the answer emt! I loved the clowns circus example! It made me Lol for the Fosters name for the HWBH. Hahaaa!

      • T-Rex says:

        A contractor can file for Workman’s Comp, they are “contracted” for employment at a particular job or project, if they are injured on that job they can file for workman’s comp to cover all medical bills, MORONSTFUBrandi was COMPLETELY eligible for medical care under WorkComp. My two cents, MORONSTFUBrandi did NOT break her hand, she probably did a sprain, in addition, I find it extremely hard to believe that the producers did NOT shuttle her ass to a doctor, unless she told them she was FINE. If I were Bravo, I would have had her sign a paper she was okay, and the producers may have done that! Devils advocate here, IF she decided to go to the hospital the hospital would have been required to take a DRUG TEST of MORONSTFUBrandi due to a workman’s comp claim. I have said this previously I think that allegeldy MORONSTFUBrandi is using drugs this season, it would certainly explain a lot of her behaviour and the reason she didn’t go to the doctor for her hand!

      • PJ says:

        I’m sure there is a contract stipulating if she is an employee or contractor. I’m sure Bravo’s attorneys know what they are doing. It does seem a shame though that she wouldn’t be covered.

        • Orson says:

          Some where they posted excerpts from a contract a RH production company (not Bravo) expected someone (maybe Alexis’ husband) to sign to appear on the show. It looked like they wanted him to assign his indenture to them. So there could be some fine print which states by signing, the Castmember waives any Workman’s Compensation from the Production Company (and by extension, Bravo). Are the castmembers SAG or AFTRA?

  39. Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

    PJ-way too skinny up there
    I get it-honestly I do. I don’t really like when people go over board with the Kyle stuff but it’s kind of like “too bad”. Someone’s always in the hot seat it seems . Maybe with Brandi it seems worse b/c she was really a fan favorite last year and now it’s very different.

    • PJ says:

      I think with Brandi it is worse, she has certainly fallen from grace, and has way more to lose than anyone else on this show. With Kyle some people take it a bit far but not like with Brandi. I sincerely hope Brandi takes note and recognizes the need to make changes and then implements the changes. Not because of what is said on blogs but for her children because she needs to earn a living. People did dislike Adrienne but how did that change her life? Adrienne could simply retreat into her money with no ill effects to herself or her children. Brandi is not the same she stands to lose everything and I can’t not feel bad about taking part in something like. I don’t think Brandi got much out of her divorce and since the children spend half of their time with their father and I’m not sure how much he works, does she even get much child support? I know most people don’t feel bad for her and think she is just getting what she deserves.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        She has made it hard to feel bad for her. I don’t think it’s fair though to say that Adrienne has money so all the crap with Brandi last year was no big deal. Just b/c Brandi doesn’t have Adrienne’s money doesn’t mean Brandi has the right to crap on her. Rich people have feeling too no? I think Brandi has made herself into such a victim that she gets so much leeway for her behavior where other HWs don’t. Im sorry that Brandi’s husband was a bastard but she is still doing waaaaaay better than any single parent I know personally. This isn’t the only job in the world for her but it’s the jobs she wants-it comes with fame and fame is the name of the game-for her and for all the other HWs.

        • PJ says:

          Goodness I didn’t say any of that. I said Brandi has a lot to lose. Adrienne doesn’t. Didn’t say a word about feelings.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            You did say Adrienne could retreat into her money with no ill effects to her or her children right? So what does that mean? B/c she has money she doesn’t care what Brandi said about her? That’s what I took it to mean. I guess that’s not what you were trying to say…
            You talk about Brandi having feelings so I spoke about Adrienne’s -it wasn’t really that far of a reach. The feeling I’m getting here is that it’s okay to not like/hate a HW as long as it’s not Brandi…maybe it’s best to leave this as agree to disagree thing? Idk….

            • PJ says:

              No financial ill effects to herself or children. That’s why I said Brandi stands to lose everything. I thought I agreed with you way up post that Brandi got a pass for what she said about Adrienne because people didn’t like Adrienne. I don’t agree that Brandi had a right to spill Adrienne’s secrets, or anyone else’s for that matter. I did cringe when that happened.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                Ok I see what you are saying-money wise it didn’t hurt Adrienne.
                I think this is really Brandi’s gig to lose-if she keeps messing up and saying crazy shizz-it’s going to effect her position-she needs to grow up and take responsibility-stop blaming and start being pro active in her own success-she seems more hell bent on failing.

                • PJ says:

                  I agree. I think she may have perhaps already blown it. Such a shame to take success and throw it away when you need it so badly and have children to care for. Lightening usually doesn’t strike twice.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I think it did hurt Adrienne money wise, it was primary the reason that she had her lawyers threaten Bravo unless they blocked out…and cost her HW position.

                  • PJ says:

                    She would have to prove the financial loss to pursue it. I don’t think she did pursue it beyond her initially getting lawyers involved. I doubt it hurt her financially.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          There is a lot of real hatefulness on these shows, and yes, sometimes folks (viewers) react and form opinions based on that. But the hatefulness is spawned by the very actors/real people who all have feelings and financial obligations, on these shows and it is their behavior, their tweets, their posts to which we react. There are consequences to what they choose to do on the daily. .. people will and do react to them. It’s a chicken and egg thing. Which came first, their behavior or the supposed viewer hatefulness? Was the supposed hatefulness a spontaneous and random reaction to nothingness? IMO, the hateful behavior on my t.v. Came first,…and then natural consequences (viewer reaction) followed.

  41. T-Rex says:

    Regarding Permits, and LisaV. I know lots of folks that as owners have gone down WITH their contractors to talk with county employees regarding permits, many times it’s better they do so that they can answer any questions that the zoning personnel may have. In addition, we don’t know how many hearings there may have been, and how many meetings were had before planning commissions, etc. The Space was originally a Coffee place, so changing that over from a Coffee place to a full on restaurant, with liquor takes a LOT of work. Just getting something re-zoned to liquor takes a lot of work. I would think that the Vpump-Todd’s probably know the re-zoning folks downtown, and I can tell you if it’s anything like here in Florida, “owner” face-time with county planners goes a LONG way. Getting a restaurant up and going takes a HUGE amount of work, if you plan on having liquor, it’s the reason many start-up restaurants don’t have liquor at first, it’s a lot of work for just beer/wine, by the way that kind of license runs about 250K, most folks cannot afford the 500-750K for the full on liquor license. I am not giving a pass to LisaV, but if there was a LAST minute meeting at a zoning hearing or just meeting with the county personnel regarding her new business, I can so totally see her calling to say she couldn’t make an event. WHEN was the last time LisaV has ever been accused of NOT going to an event? She and VileKyle have shown up to almost EVERY event.

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

      Maybe she ran into complications when opening SUR and wanted to avoid some of the hassling with this one.

      • T-Rex says:

        When re-zoning a property into a restaurant, that does not already have a liquor license attached is always a HUGE HEADACHE, it can take a couple of years depending on where the property is located and any opposition may be faced by the neighbors! That’s why restaurants already zoned liquor are never empty long.

  46. Exit4 says:

    There was a discussion over on the Facebook group that pretty much said in California if you have dings on your recent health care record (like getting a hand X-ray) you’ll get turned down for insurance. So Brandi basically said she has no insurance for a pre existing condition and also was afraid to see a doctor because they’d turn her down for insurance because of it. I didn’t agree-it’s sounds extreme-but I’m not from California, does that sound correct?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      Sounds like a lame excuse-what’s the pre existing condition? Dopeyness? Wasn’t she in the hospital after her ambulance ride? What did she do then? I think she is just telling one story after another at this point.

      • Exit4 says:

        • PJ says:

          She had a tumor on her breast maybe that was the pre existing condition. Health care is messed up these days. If you haven’t been insured for I think eighteen months consecutively and have any pre existing condition they will turn you down.

    • Nancy says:

      She’s crazy. A fractured hand would not be a problem but I’m a little surprised

    • Dixie says:

      The ACA did away with denying coverage due to pre-existing conditions. I think someone earlier guessed it – she didn’t want to go to the ER because they would have run a routine drug test.

      • Nancy says:

        We don’t run routine drug tests in the ER unless it’s warranted.

        • T-Rex says:

          Nancy, for WorkComp at my job it’s a required test, if we send anyone down to the ER a Drug screen must be run. In addition when I worked for the Staffing agency, which was WAY back in 1991, if a Temp/Contracting employee got injured on a job we sent them to, if they got injured and had to go to an ER/Walk-in Clinic/etc. we also required a Drug Test. One of the companies we sent temps to all the time, was sued for WorkComp injuries as was our company, but we all one cause the temp employee was freakin HIGH as a kite.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Oh my gosh we are so naiive…THAT’S WHY she didnt want medical care! Really? Wd they do a routine drug test?

        • Pghemtchick says:

          If work comp felt it played a role, yes. They’ll go at everything when reviewing their costs.

      • BB says:

        I’m no Brandi fan, but I’m not onboard with that train of thought. That’s kind of out there IMO.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          What is “out there?” That she might not have wanted a drug test?

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Is the thought of her having drugs or alcohol in her system out there? She wrote about doing those things in her book; Coping with the help of drugs and alcohol, albeit both legal substances.

        • PJ says:

          I agree it’s way overboard. I think she didn’t have insurance and was afraid to go for fear of being turned down. If she signed a contract agreeing that she is not an employee but rather an individual contractor and if she earns money from other sources than this show, which we know she does, they do not have to pay workers comp. She may have a business name DBA or even a corporation registered establishing herself as a business which would mean she is an individual contractor not an employee. I’m sure the show has lawyers that know what they are doing.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            Ok to he whole drug thing maybe a bit overboard but this is what happens when discussing Brandi-she does this! She should have walked into an urgent care place and just paid out of pocket-I don’t want to hear that she couldn’t afford it-she goes to get her Botox and buys shoes and bags and clothes so I’m sure she could afford to pay down an urgent care visit-hell I could pay it with my little side money I make from baby sitting!! Instead of saying the truth-which who knows what the truth is-she spins all this crap and then it becomes a frenzied mess…it’s Brandi’s way of dealing with everything. Maybe she didn’t get it looked at b/c she knew she would get Lisa on camera bitching about it!!

            • PJ says:

              Maybe, but she may very we’ll be telling the truth. I think it’s a shame and unfair to doubt her on everything. Saying inappropriate things does not make her a liar. I have insurance and often don’t follow up on health care I need because our co pays have changed so much. I had surgery in 2012 at the end of the year and I’m still paying off my co pay. I started having a problem with my ear and need an MRI of my brain because they can’t figure out what’s wrong. I am putting it off until my hospital bill is paid off. Welcome to health care in 2014. I’m very sympathetic to health care issues.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                Don’t doubt her because she says inappropriate things-I don’t her because she tells out and lies and exaggerates and over dramatizes every thing that happens to her. Her being inappropriate is a totally separate thing.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                    She started lying the second she got her spot on the show-the whole Cedric thing was a lie-she said she knew him for years..and then she said she didn’t. She said he was her “manny” and then she said he wasn’t. She said Adrienne got her on the show but then she changed her mind about that too. She also said her and her boys slept in her car…really? She has 493 best friends and she slept in her car? I have ONE best friend and she is friend enough to keep me and my kids out of a car and in a bed…her lies seem ends less and dramatic. And then there is the one big giant lie she said all last season that I’m not allowed to bring up ever again (for good reason) but we all know what that lie was.

      • PJ says:

        From the government website: “The only exception is for grandfathered individual health insurance plans — the kind you buy yourself, not through an employer. They do not have to cover pre-existing conditions.” The affordable health care act only recently went into effect. Did Brandi hurt herself before this happened? She says she has insurance now maybe she got it due to the affordable health care act.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I can say that surgeries were a reason to deny insurance in Pa. When my insurance ran out I went to get quotes from others, and I was denied for multiple surgeries in the past 5 years.

      I wonder if mental health counted as a preexisting condition in Cali. Brandi has mentioned her anti depressants and what was it she took before the flight with alcohol?

                Both we and our best friends have pools. We both drain half way. I asked my husband why and he told me the recommendation is to drain below the inlet pipes so you can blow them out and fill them with antifreeze. Plus snow fills up the pool and if you don’t drain it then you can have a lot of water run off when it melts. You don’t want that mess all over your yard.

      • TexasTart says:

        Y’all it doesn’t normally snow in Atlanta so they don’t weatherize pools – just like people don’t in this part of Texas.

    So, I asked my husband at dinner about the Brandi thing. He works with insurance because of his job- so he’s pretty good for info on that matter. When I told him I didn’t believe it-he told me that because I’ve never been in the individual market, I’ve always been in group, I don’t realize there’s a big difference. Prior to ACA, insurers were very tough on the individual buyer and still will be in a backdoor way. And he listed many, many things that would be considered pre existing conditions. Pregnancy, acne, substance abuse, depression, plus cancers and the other common ones. The wildest stories he’s heard come out of California. But as for Brandi specifically-Ill bullet point it. And this is just his opinion based on what he knows.

    The independent contractor thing. That’s so bravo doesn’t have to cover them individually. That we know. This could be to avoid having to offer family or spousal coverage. He doesn’t know every state law. It also is a different tax structure. They get 1099s instead of W2s. At least in his business.

    Workmans Comp. Anyone whether an employee or independent contractor has to be covered by it. Provided by whoever employs you. So since she was filming when it happened-she should have been treated right there. If she refused-she absolutely would have had to sign a paper refusing treatment. So she can’t come back and sue them later. Companies do not mess around with that. So in his opinion it shouldn’t be an issue because her employer will pay. As for a drug test-it depends. An accident in the office (not sure about a boxing ring!) no. They won’t drug test you. But if you’re driving, they might. That depends on the agreement.

    I said the only pre existing condition I could think of for her was depression because she’s talked about it. So that may be the source of her denial. But-he told me that in the individual market, you have to disclose literally every medical anything you’ve ever had. And they will check. If you forget anything they will rescind you for fraud. So, if you say you don’t smoke and they check your FB and youre smoking or you say you don’t drink and have a drunk driving accident. Bye bye insurance.

    He believes the depression was the issue. She has a medical history if she gets scripts for antidepressants. A broken hand isn’t going to prevent her from getting insurance, but if her public behavior is counter to anything she puts on an insurance info form-that would.

    I think we have the answer as to why she didn’t go to the doctor. She signed off on the Workmans comp. Sorry so long!

    • VV™ says:

      Brandi called an ambulance and went to the ER with Lisa. Brandi tweeted about it. Why wasn’t she worried about not having insurance then?
      That’s the word on Twitter…….

      • Exit4 says:

        Exactly! And that’s a way bigger bill. The only thing I can say in her defense (did I really say that?) is she was scared it was something serious. Maybe she felt she could handle the hand!

        • TexasTart says:

          She didn’t break her hand IMO and everything is an excuse…..as per usual. I wish this pathetic cry-wolf tour would end!

          • PJ says:

            But you don’t know that for sure. I believe she did break her hand.

            • Nancy says:

              She did break her hand as I heard it. It’s called a boxers fracture.

              • T-Rex says:

                Aaaaah, therein lies my theory that Bravo ADDED the sound effect, wouldn’t put it past them to do this. I don’t still don’t buy it that she broke her hand.

                • PJ says:

                  Most of her cast mates have said she did break her hand and that they all heard the crack of it breaking. So sound effects were not added. So is the cast lying for Brandi now? Lying for her distancing themselves from her, can’t be both.

        • kit9 says:

          Ambulance(911)and the ER have to take you and give u care. They will try to get compensated later but have to treat everyone, regardless if they have insurance.

          • T-Rex says:

            So then why didn’t MORONSTFUBrandi then go to the ER with her hand, that was “allegedly” broken? Again, she lies, she can go to the ER something that really wasn’t an emergency and she can’t go when she allegedly has something wrong. Not buying it, oh and since I have all this hospital paperwork, they have payment plans for any hospital bills, and you can pay as little as $5/month if you cannot afford your bill.

            • Exit4 says:

              At the hospital where I had my sons-the major one around here-they give you 30-40% off whatever your out of pocket is when you sign up for a payment plan. Except it’s 6 or 12 months post discount-generally more then $5. You can do those low payments for hospital bills, but you have to supply pay stubs and at least the previous years tax return to prove youre eligible. Whenever I have out of pocket hospital bills I always sign up for the payment plan for the discount. Not sure if I’m cheating the system there…..

          • PJ says:

            I’m sure someone like Nancy would know this better than I do. But not every hospital has to treat you if you have no insurance. What they have to do is allow you to make payments interest free. They will set up a payment schedule and as long as you don’t miss a payment you can pay them in monthly amounts you can afford.

            • T-Rex says:

              There are Six “not for profit” hospitals in the Los Angeles/Beverly Hills area, all of these hospitals take “indignant” care for those that do not have insurance yet, and these are not shoddy hospitals but well respected. Also, MORONSTFUBrandi’s injury occured well before the ACA was a requirement. My point is don’t LIE that you can’t afford to go!

              • PJ says:

                How do you know she could afford it? But besides that, that isn’t exactly what she said. I doubt Brandi is low income enough to qualify as indigent.

      • T-Rex says:

        I have AWESOME insurance and my co-worker had to have an ambulance ride to the ER one day and HOLY SMOKES that wasn’t covered fully and cost him just $500/with insurance. So again, how do you afford that and not a trip to the ER for a broken hand, which I don’t believe she ever had

        • kit9 says:

          If you call 911, they respond, dispatch an ambulance no matter your ability to pay. Now, they will get your info and attempt to bill you for the cost of the ambulance. My sis has racked up a small fortune in ambulance rides and she has no insurance and each ride is 2 grand plus. She finally called them and told them she has no way to pay and the bills stopped.

      • PJ says:

        She had boob infection, that can be quite serious. My best friends daughter had one and it was bad. We were on vacation together and our friends had to leave to take care of their daughter. She was in the hospital for several days and on IV antibiotics, two rounds.

    • PJ says:

      Brandi had a tumor on her breast that could be a pre existing condition.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Thanks!

      Here’s the catch tho:
      When ACA was written into law, Pre existing insurances popped up in states. It was switched last year to the federal program PCIP. If Brandi was truly in eligible, and without insurance over 6months she would have been covered. I know the Pa rate was roughly 283 a month. So she could have gotten that insurance. It’s moot tho since she was covered under comp. this IMO is just a pity Brandi party she’s trying to throw.

      Thank your hubby 🙂 and thank you for sharing 🙂

    • nyc mama says:

      I also believe to be on the show she would have to be a member of SAG. She could have purchased insurance through them.

      • I don’t want to be an ugly person, but Brandi has said on interviews that she has savings… Your hand is priority! If not for yourself, for your kids! If Botox is priority (she needs her looks to be on TV) you need your hands to drive safely! IF true, what a lack of common sense, seriously!

        • I still think that it was an accident while working and Bravo had the obligation to watch for her well being!

        • PJ says:

          Well yes she probably does lack common sense. But I have not read about her having savings except saving for a house. She still is renting and not able to buy a house. Who knows how much in savings. Reminds me of the Pawn stars where Chumlee was using his savings to day trade and lost it all. Turns out it was fifty dollars.

  53. LisaJ says:

    Quick question about VR….was Jax’s confession about sleeping with Kristin actually on the show? If it was, I didn’t catch it, but I’m usually doing something more interesting while the show is on…like clipping my toenails.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi lisaJ! That is a great question!! I hit rewind a couple of times to try to find it being said on camera. But I didn’t see it in the beginning ofnthe episode you kos when Stassi was doing her TH.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        You know*. Sorry for the typos

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          I don’t believe it was actually shown-Stacci just told us about it. Lisa was there when Jax admitted I think. This whole thing is going to blow up next week -I think Jax is lying b/c he always lies-sometimes just for attention!!!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Yeah…it’s like they are hinting that he is lying. Lots of ugly details if he is lying.

            • Nancy says:

              He admitted it on the beach when he was talking to Tom. Even went into details.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Yes, he admitted it on the beach in ugly detail…and several times during the episode, but I was talking about how the episode started. Stassi just started the episode saying, so Jax admitted it….etc. that’s when I was rewinding, saying…when? Did I miss something? But yes, he did talk directly to Tom, Who looked really devastated.

                • Nancy says:

                  When he asked Jax if he was wearing a condom when his girlfriend was giving
                  him oral sex and he said no…I thought Tom was going to throw-up.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    I know, right? What does Tom know?? I guess he knows the number of partners he’s had?

                    • Nancy says:

                      Exactly. They are best friends so he knows about all the partners that Jax has had.
                      I wonder if he gets himself checked for STD’s? I doubt it. One day Jax is going to
                      fall in love and he is going to get his heart broken but until that happens the guy is
                      a disgusting excuse for a human being.

              • HuskerHuny says:

                Yo Chimosa! The difference when Lisa and Brandi talk about sex is that Lisa is making a joke and a clever joke at that. The women is in a 30+ year marriage. We get it. When Brandi talks about sex, it’s not funny or clever; it’s gross, or at least, it is to me.

                And by the way, please put me in the ‘dislike’ Teresa group, so the population of that group just doubled in size!

        • ladebra says:

          It’s just my opinion, but Lisa’s tweet doesn’t sound like Brandi’s style. If Brandi had tweeted this I would think oh that’s funny.

          But I think Brandi would have tweeted ” I offered him a blow job, and a threesome with my beautiful buffs and a bathroom fu$)k”. And you are right, I would think that is trashy.

  70. Exit4 says:

    So I was googling to answer NYC mamas question about Brandi joining SAG. Reality shows are non union. That’s why they’re so cheap to make. They call reality TV the Walmart model. Anyway-I ran across an article about reality TV and children. It’s was interesting and I’ll link it. NJ is mentioned. And it made me wonder…

    I know there’s not much Dina love here, but she doesn’t bother me. I also never believed that Dina was fired for forging her ex husbands signature. I know Lynn heard it from a source she trusted-but lots of other sites had the story as well and Danielle herself said it in several articles. To me, it was always a nice “after the fact” story to explain what she did that Caroline was crying over and no one would divulge! You can’t prove or disprove it and if someone wants to make Dina look bad-it does.

    But we all know now, for the most part, that both parents sign waivers. Several have not. It’s a legal protection for them and a legal document, if they want those signatures-all they need is the parents contact info. Besides, Lexi had already appeared on a show with her mom, her extended family is appearing on it. No reason to forge. Dads not going to say no in 2007 to something that ultimately aired in 2009 and what was painted as a fun family thing actually turned out to be a shit show. Everyone in the cast discussed how ugly things were after filming ended-a full year before the thing even aired! A full year before the reunion. If they were going to fire Dina for anything, they would have done it before season 2. The same season her exes salon was on the show. These women are all expendable. I do believe when lexis dad was made aware of the BS and saw the show himself he simply said no more. Lexi has never disappeared. She was on WWHL, the Dina’s party show-still as a minor. I also believe Dina walked away because she thought she had better opportunities on her own.

    For someone who got fired-Dina never went away. She was on Andy’s show multiple times after the fact, her cat married Lisa’s dog, which was bizarre. She promotes her new shows, made guest appearances on housewives twice after her firing and is now rehired. Lexi is joining and she’s 18 now, but when filming started she was not. Are we going to have forgery part 2? 17 is still a minor. Content is probably key here.

    Andy clearly loves her. His book, twitter-they meet up in the hamptons. She’s never been treated like someone fired, especially someone fired for doing something to damage their show. I’m sure it will come up in the near future.

    I really do believe and always have that the firing thing was just a weird cover for something else. This article made me wonder. It’s originally from the la times.

    http://www.minorcon.org/safety_net.html

    Since there’s such a slippery slope here with the filming-is this what Danielle did or said? Made it appear that Lexi was being mistreated by the show itself? An that Dina was allowing them to exploit her? That she wasn’t protecting her? And Danielle was disturbed by it? Getting the ex to question producers and start looking into her treatment? I don’t know but it just struck me that maybe there’s something here. Plus I’m having insomnia and it makes me think of goofy things! 🙂

    Maybe now that Lexi is older they’ll talk about what really happened.

    • Exit4 says:

      I forgot to add that I also kind of believe dina walked away because she saw where things were headed. Her and Jac never liked each other. It was obvious on the season 1 finale. There’s a piece of me that wonders if what became Teresa vs Melissa wasn’t meant to be Jac vs Dina. And she wouldn’t do it. So she took her mirrored ball to HGTV and bedazzled innocent homeowners. Notice too, she comes back after her family leaves.

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

        I agree with you. I also think everyone’s “source” was the vengeance-wielding Jacqueline herself. We all know now she has had an agenda to bring down Dina from the start.

    • nyc mama says:

      She has been in other productions beside RH including a cameo last year with Kyle and Camille so I would venture a guess she is a member of SAG

      • Exit4 says:

        When I looked it up-there’s a bunch of requirements you have to meet. Plus a 2000-3000 to join (if they approve you) and keep up certain requirements. Lots of rules!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

    I just watched the fight on the HOA and what in the world was Nene thinking having those extra people there and what was with those questions? That whole thing is on Nene and no one else as she sat the whole thing up. It was her friends that started it not Kenya. She was responding to what that guy and his common law wife were saying to her, I didn’t see her charging anyone, I saw her walking over to the gal to have her conversation with her and the guy grabbed her arm. It looked like Peter was trying to break it up but pushed her friend a bit to hard when he was trying to separate them and he went flying. Apollo really overreacted from what I could see, but he did say the guy hit him which is probably why his reaction was what it was. Still seems he overreacted even for that. But that mess is all on Nene and her friends Chris and whatever her name is. Those friends were there to bring the fight and I think Nene knew it.
