Ramona Filing for Divorce plus Top Chef – Down to the Final Two

Ramona Singer Filing for Divorce

NYDailyNews is reporting that Ramona Singer was observed filing court papers – presumably for divorce from Mario.

Ramona has made this statement after news that the couple had been engaged in an altercation after she found him in their Hampton’s home with his mistress.

Privacy is hard to come by when you are in the public eye, and I hope she can make her way through this quickly.  It makes me sad, and I wish her all the best.

Top Chef “Maui Wowie” by BB

Nina, Shirley and Nick all voted on the dish from the Last Chance Kitchen competition they thought was the best.  Carlos made a Mahi dish.  Louis made a Tuna dish.  All three remaining chefs voted for the Tuna dish so Louis is back in the competition.  He worked hard to get there by winning eight Last Chance Kitchen competitions.

top-chef-season-11-new-orleans-hero-last-chance-kitchen-winner-reveal

Now for the Quick Fire Challenge, which will be judged by Hawaiian chef Sam Choy.  The state of Hawaii is the number one per capita consumer of Spam, which the locals refer to as Hawaiian steak.  The chefs will have 30 minutes to make an original dish using a Spam product.  This is easy for Louis who is familiar with Spam.  Nicholas admits he’s probably only tasted Spam once in his life and he’s never made a dish out of it.  Shirley thinks her strongest competition will be Nina or Louis because of Nicholas’ bad track record in the Quick Fire challenges.  The winner of this challenge will get $10,000.  Chef Choy tells them to be creative because he is the Spam master.

There are a bunch of locals hanging around asking the chefs questions while they are cooking.  Nicholas has no clue but starts out making a Spam broth.  Louis will be making a Spam mousse.  Nina is making Spam croquets and Shirley is making a Spam and rice dish.  Chef Choy thought Nick’s broth was unique and Nina’s dish was a dozen different flavors in one bite.  He thought Louis’ dish could have had a little more Spam flavor.  He thought Shirley’s was incredibly tasty.  Creativity was important so Nick is declared the winner.  He did Spam like Chef Choy has never seen it before.

The chefs are shocked to learn that two people will be going home in the elimination challenge and only two chefs will be going to the finale.  For the elimination challenge, the chefs must get their ingredients, known locally as canoe crops, from an outrigger canoe located at the shore line.  They will be serving at a party the next night.  I think it’s funny that Nina can’t think of the name for what the guys on the outrigger canoe are wearing.  She calls them thongs.  I call them loincloths.   Anyway, they have one hour to prep that day and two hours to finish their dishes the next day.

Louis picks a fish he’s never before prepared.  Nina thinks she got one type of fish, but finds out it’s not what she thought.  Louis and Nina are both using the same type of fish.  Shirley is the only one doing a pork dish.  Nicholas also picked a fish, but not the same type as Nina and Louis.  Louis seems calm.  The others seem a little more stressed.  After the prep work is done, the chefs go to a nice hotel suite where Nicholas gets the nice beach front room, the women get the room with the two double beds and poor Louis gets the pull out bed.  Shirley says to Louis, “Congratulations Top Chef Kitchen.”

The next day, the chefs are finalizing their meals outdoors and it starts raining about 30 minutes before their time is up.  They scramble to make sure the rain and wind don’t affect their dishes.  Luckily the rain shower doesn’t last very long.  It’s meal time.

The judges try Louis’ dish first.  He made Grilled Opah with Sweet Potato and Coconut Sauce.  Chef Choy’s fish is cooked perfectly.  Tom’s is a little undercooked.  There is some inconsistency in how each fish portion is cooked.  Nina also made Grilled Opah, but hers was paired with Taro Root and Coconut Puree.  Tom thinks Nina’s sauce may be a little too spicy but the fish is cooked perfectly.  Gail thinks Nina’s dish is excellent.  Nick made Opakapaka with Jalapeno and Crispy Chicken Skin.  Other than one person thinking the Jalapeno is a little much, everyone likes Nicholas’ dish.  They remark that he seems more relaxed since he’s been in Hawaii.  Shirley made a Honey-Glazed Pork with Sweet Potato and Tumeric Puree.  The complaint about Shirley’s dish is that it’s a little too sweet, although Emeril says the pork is perfectly cooked.

The judging is close as always when you have really good chefs left in the competition.  When the chefs come before the judging table, the judges all comment about the sweetness of Shirley’s dish although you can tell Emeril is pulling for her.  They comment on the inconsistencies of Louis’ dish even though he took the most risks with his dish.  Padma tells Nina some of the diners may have been turned off by her dish being too spicy, but Gail seems to be pulling for Nina by saying it was bold.  Tom points out that Nick seems more confident about his cooking than he has been all season and he managed to balance out his dish without overthinking it.  It seems Nick may be peaking at the right time since he won the Quick Fire and seems to have done well on this challenge.

When the judges are alone, Gail thinks Louis had more pressure on him than the others, even though there were some inconsistencies in his fish.  Emeril thinks Nick finally thought about all the components of his dish and executed it flawlessly.  Tom liked Shirley’s dish but really thinks she made a mistake using honey to glaze the pork.  They talk about Nina’s sauce being a little too overpowering for her fish, although her fish was cooked perfectly.  So who goes and who stays?

When the chefs come back, Emeril announces Nick as the winner of the challenge so he’s automatically in the finale.  The first chef to be eliminated is Louis.  He’s really disappointed that his son won’t get to see him named top chef.  It’s down to the two women.  Padma seems really sad to tell Shirley to pack her knives and go.  Congratulations to Nina and Nick.  They are in the finale.  It was really hard to see Louis and especially Shirley go, but it all comes down to the food in the end.

In the previews for next week, we hear Padma, who by the way is wearing a skimpy red bikini in the episode, say it’s the closest finale she’s ever experienced.  Wow.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Happy Friday eve. I’m sooooo happy this work week is just about a wrap. 🙂 Have a great day and don’t work to hard. It’s 10 degrees. When will it end. ;( 🙂

  2. plainviewsue says:

    I watched Top Chef this morning & I am so upset Shirley didn’t make the final two. She was my pick to win and she has been consistently great.

    I really hope that Nina wins. I don’t like Nicholas at all. I find him condescending and not enjoyable to watch at all. Very disappointed he is in finals.

  3. Powell says:

    I feel bad for Ramona and Avery but Ramona has to do what she has to do.

  4. Shiny says:

    Sad for Ramona. Sounds like he waited to want a new life until his daughter was “grown” and in college, but kids never feel grown up enough not to be upset and hurt by family breaking up. Hope Ramona goes slow on the rebounding and finds someone who is more in love with her

    • Powell says:

      I agree Shiny. If true it sure was Shi*y of Mario and the mistress to be at their family home. It’s one thing for a woman to have an affair w/a married man which is wrong in my book, but for her to have the audacity to ho into his family home is appalling and disgusting and she doesn’t even have respect for herself. I don’t care what the man has to say. It’s not ok to go into the wife’s family home.

  5. Powell says:

    Jill Zarin Ramona tweet is directed at you. Keep your bazoo out of her biz.

  6. Bringing this over from the last blog

    • Powell says:

      What’s this about now? Sheeeeessshhh. She gives me a headache. Jac from NJ used to literally give me a headache w/her blogs. Now Brandi literally gives me a headache w/her nonsense.

    • Orson says:

      I’m reminded of some of the lyrics of one of my favourite songs:

      “You’re gonna reap what you sew, that old saying is true.
      You’re gonna reap what you sew, that old saying’s true.
      Just like you mistreat someone, someone’s gonna mistreat you.

      You’ve been laughing pretty babe; someday you’re gonna be cryin’.
      You’ve been laughing pretty babe; someday you’re gonna be cryin’.
      Further on up the road, you’ll find out I’m not lyin’.”

    • jezzibel says:

      what a grievance monger

    • T-Rex says:

      Brought this over from yesterdays blog:
      He is one of her F**k Buddies. She fake married him, but she also F**ks him on occasion. When the crap “allegedly” wend down at NOBU he was with her that night. He is actually friends/acquainted with CarltonTheDUMBASSWitch and her husband, he took a trip to Hawaii with them. I am going to go out on a limb, but I think she met him through CarltonTheDUMBASSWitch, again another in my long line of notions that CarltonTheDUMBASSWitch are actually swingers. There are pictures of DarinHarvey and CarltonTheDUMBASSWitch’s family together in Hawaii, with I also think Darin’s son. Not sure how long CarltonTheDUMBASSWitch and Darin have been friends but looks like they were friends first and then he got introduced to MORONSTFUBrandi, who promptly F****d him. He fell for her from the twatter at the time, however she went on to F**k other folks

  7. VV™ says:

    I can’t believe Nick👿 made it to the finals! It should’ve been Nina and Shirley.
    I’m so mad I don’t want to watch the finals even though Nina is my pick.
    #conspiracy #nicksajerk #saveshirley

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      I like Nick. They wouldn’t have chosen him if he didn’t have the skills and they are saying in the previews that it’s a close call. Don’t get me wrong I like Shirley but it is what it is.

  8. Powell says:

    Wendy Williams is getting ready to cover Ramona & Mario’s situation on hot topics.

  9. Powell says:

    LOL Wendy showed pics of Ramona one in a bikini. Wendy said Ramona is. She can get another guy. Wendy’s hot topics staff said no one wants Ramona cuz she’s crazy. Wendy said why not?Ramona does have a “ticky ticky boom ” but she has money, she’s a Socialite. Wendy also listed just about all the HWs that are now divorced.

    • I Need A Life! says:

      Wendy will be on in in a bit here in the Midwest. Love her. I see both sides. Ramona’s one of the reasons I won’t be watching any more New York. (No more Aviva for me.) Can’t take the stupid, “Pinot, anyone?” That’s the only reason she stayed on the show. So she could advertise. There were times I would have choked her myself. She got the last laugh by even offering the cops wine the night of the Hamptons blow up. She’s probably miserable because Page 6 didn’t add that it was her personal PInot. But she’s in perfect shape. Lots of money. New York real estate. Kids are grown. Wendy’s right. Lots of guys will be standing in line. Isn’t that crazy WSL..Wall Street Lady….a friend of Ramona’s? Maybe she can stop in and let us know what she thinks is going on and how Page 6 really got this story in the first place.

  10. PJ says:

    Ramona’s divorce is so sad. I hate to see a fifty plus woman having to go through a divorce, anyone really. But even if you have money it isn’t that easy to start over. Infidelity is such a betrayal and not just of your wife but of your children as well. I don’t understand why there is so much disloyalty in the world.

    • Powell says:

      PJ I don’t get it either. I don’t know why people do this to one another. To me it would just make so much sense, be so much easier on everyone if people would just say, “I’m not happy. I want a different life. I want a divorce.” But I guess that just makes too much sense.

      • I Need A Life! says:

        We’re living longer. That’s why people do this to each other. It used to be that 25 years together was a huge deal. Look at people celebrating 50 years together. Rarely are they smiling. (Just kidding.) I think it’s great that being in your mid-50’s like Ramona is just the start of a new life. But, Powell, I agree with you. Just make a clean break.

      • PJ says:

        I always say marriage is not for the faint of heart, it takes work but happiness is a choice.

        • Sus says:

          So true PJ. People think they have to be happy every second too. There are times when the way your spouse breathes can make you want to run screaming into the night. You have to have the maturity to know you’ll get through those times. Bringing another person into it won’t help you through it. It just confuses everything and brings on major hurt for all involved.

          • PJ says:

            LOL I know! Last night my husband confiscated my iPad and I wanted to strangle him, but fair is fair he wanted to watch a Paul is dead conspiracy video and I wanted to comment on this blog. But seriously I adore my husband still after thirty years.

            The thing is people may convince themselves that they will be happier with someone else but whatever problems they had in their marriage will eventually surface in the new relationship. I agree about maturity and age and maturity don’t necessarily go hand in hand.

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

    I’m totally over Padma “sexing it up” for the camera. This is a cooking competition, right? The woman can’t speak without sounding like she has cotton balls in her mouth. Bravo wonders why we’re tuning out…

    • BB says:

      I’m kind of over women feeling like they need to sex it up – period. Case in point is the opening song of the Grammys. There’s Beyoncé in a total hoochie mamma getup and Jay-Z in a classy tux. Sad that these women feel the need to sex it up to the extreme. They will tell you it’s a symbol of their creativity, or some kind of statement of empowerment. In most cases they are either trying to go for shock value or they don’t feel confident enough about their talent or looks. It’s gotten old.

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

        BB I’m with you on the whole Beyonce/Jay Z thing-at this point in Beyonce’s career she doesn’t need to hoochie Mamma it up while he stands around like her pimp-she is fierce and she can stand on her talent alone.

      • Powell says:

        Ladies that’s the Grammy’s. It wasn’t risque, it wasn’t scandalous. If it was the Oscars that would be a different story. But yes sexing it up is so over done.

        • BB says:

          I agree. The Grammys used to be classier. I guess people thought it was too boring so they made them look like the MTV Music Awards.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Agree here 1,000 percent BB!

      • kit9 says:

        Ahh, such a good point. Cause it’s not like Beyonce wouldn’t be sexy as hell in a more modest outfit. She would of course! No need for that outfit

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Padma is why I stopped watching Top Chef this season after never missing a single episode since day one. So true about the way she speaks. She has worn out her relevance on this show, if she really ever had any. Time for new blood Bravo.

  12. Orson says:

    Okay, I seem to have a little different perspective than the rest of you on this Ramona/Mario thing.

    Ramona and Mario were separated. That’s a shame. They agreed she’d live in their apartment in the city and he’d live in their house on the island. So, she goes to his place on the island and finds him there with his girlfriend. “Walked in on them”? I don’t know exactly. What were they doing when she walked in? Watching tv? Having a cuppa? We don’t know, do we? But we know what kinds of headlines sell tabloids, don’t we? And what sort of obligations do separated couples have towards each other anyway? Were they separated or “on a break”? Just ask Rachel and Ross, I guess.

    • Powell says:

      Ok they agreed you live here and I’ll live there. Fine. But until we’re divorced or there is a property settlement don’t bring your mistress, GF, whatever she is in OUR family home. You want to see her, be w/her? Take it somewhere else. End of story. The same for Ramona. No GFs/BFs in the family home until it’s all said and done.

      • PJ says:

        Maybe they were separated but with the understanding they would work on things. I think it is really bad taste to bring a GF into a family home while married. There is a reason Ramona called the police if it was such a clean break that may not have happened. The whole thing is ugly.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I thought the house in the Hampton’s was Ramona’s. I thought she had bought it before they married, and it was touted as the sign of what a successful business woman she is.

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

      They have a daughter who could could have “walked in on them.” They seemed very generous so maybe other friends were allowed access to the house. If their arrangement was to keep the gf out of the house until after the divorce, or maybe they were working on a reconciliation, Mario should have been wary of the Wrath of Ramona.

    • missusmc says:

      I see it this way, too, but I never bought that Ramona and Mario were in a real marriage. I thought something had felt off since season 1. Ramona and Sonja’s fake lesbian antics didn’t help, nor did Mario’s wandering eye. And I think production knew and set up the psychic to say that about Mario cheating to get a reaction (but probably didn’t think the reaction would be the fake strip tease scene). Ramona said too many times how women need to be independent, that they shouldn’t put up with BS, etc- I think she was projecting to make it seem like everything was A-OK. (Because how many women in happy marriages actually have to go around saying the words, “I’m happy.”) Ramona is one of the oldest, if not the oldest housewife. She got married at 37, which at one point was considered “late in life.” It’s entirely possible she wanted a family and settled for Mario and they decided to tough it out until Avery left the house. At any rate, I wish them the best, and I wish reality tv would actually show something real.

      • missusmc says:

        To be clear, I don’t think Ramona and Sonja actually were anything but friends. I think she clung to Sonja because of how sad and lonely she was. And I think that Mario has probably had women on the side the entire time. I think the fake pregnancy story line was a message to whomever Mario was seeing on the side, letting her know that Mario was still having sex with Ramona. And I think Ramona’s walk with bethenny was Ramona projecting her fears on B. I think Ramona kept talking about how strong she is to convince herself, and to try and convince the world that everything is ok. Just a very sad situation.

  13. Huh?

  14. Powell says:

    Tom Arnold is on Wendy. Anyone that watched Rosanne, which I loved remembers when Rosanne, Jackie, their mom Bev and Nancy opened the “Loose Meat Sandwich” restaurant. Tom said he and Rosanne actually opened a “Loose Meat Sandwich” restaurant in Iowa. I didn’t know that. He brought sandwiches for Wendy and they tasted them on air. I want one. 🙂

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

      I love Nuway, and MaidRight for you lake people. Since we no longer have one in Phoenix, I toss a pound of beef in a pan with a can of French onion soup. Serve it on a sesame bun with mustard, pickles and a slice of cheese. You’ll thank me later.

      • Powell says:

        Mmmmmm that sounds good. When TA was describing how it’s prepared he said it’s like a sloppy Joe w/o the slop. Funny.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        We call those sandwiches Tastees here where I live. There used to be a drive-in restaurant (ala American Graffiti) in my town that served these sandwiches. I make them with hamburger, onion, salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard, worchestershire sauce and horseradish sauce. Not quite a sloppy joe, just a bit ‘looser’, hence the name loose meat. No real quantities of how much you put in; I use more ketchup, a bit of mustard for tang and the rest for flavor. I keep adding and tasting until I think it’s right. Yummy stuff and easy – stuff you usually have in the kitchen.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          OK, now I’m hungry. Do I have the ingredients at home or do I need to stop at the store on the way. (And can I leave work NOW?!!!)

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

            You can take road trip to Wichita. It’s worth it. Get the sweet potato tots too.

            • Kansas Girl says:

              There’s a Nuway in Leavenworth, but I’ve never been able to catch it open. Which speaks more to when I’m in Leavenworth than what hours they’re open.

          • Powell says:

            LOL. Yummmmm.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          I serve mine on a bun, but you will need some chips to scoop up what falls out of the bun and believe me, stuff will fall out! I don’t want to waste any of it. And, this stuff is even better the second day.

        • Powell says:

          Another yummy recipe.

  15. T-Rex says:

    I have an issue with the whole “let me have my privacy” thing, RamonaWino is asking for at this time. Look, you go on television and whore yourself out to the Bravo Dime, you get paid a pretty penny to do so, yet when something hits the fan in your life, you call out the “privacy card”, guess what, when you sell your soul to the CompanyStore, you unfortunately lose some of your privacy rights. Your daughter is an ADULT, she is over 18 years old and is no longer a child, now in RamonaWino eyes, Avery will ALWAYS be a child, but in the public, she is an adult. Why not be adult about and come clean, stop sending out “sources” and we need our “privacy”, crapola. Be an adult and say, yep, we have had issues for some time, we thought it best to separate, we wish each other well, yadda yadda. I think folks do the “privacy” schtick to drum up more drama and more publicity.

    • Orson says:

      Well, the Countless got privacy when she got dumped by the Count. Let Ramona have the same treatment, why not?

    • Powell says:

      T-Rex I get what your saying. Avery is over 18 but she’s barely out of her teens and since Mario hasn’t thought it was necessary to think about how his behavior would affect his daughter, Ramona has. Avery didn’t ask for this type of scrutiny even if her parents signed up for it showing the good, the bad, the ugly. I think Ramona is doing the right thing for her child. I’m sure she’ll take all the media hits but doesn’t want Avery to.

    • Sus says:

      I agree.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      T-Rex, I think I like you more each day. You slammed the nail on the head about these HoWives and ‘privacy’ 🙂

      • T-Rex says:

        Well especially since RamonaWino made money from the Ho-wives, every time MarioLethario also made an appearance, they received a Bravo Check, every time Avery made an appearance, they received a Bravo Check, etc. It’s all convenient to have your paws out for money when things are going “your way” but when you make that deal with the Bravo-Devil, there is always a price to pay in the end. You can’t just say “no I don’t wanna” after you have already signed on that dotted line and cashed those checks.

        • Eastbayca says:

          Just because Mario and/or Avery made appearances doesn’t mean a check was offered. The family of Real Housewives are covered under the contract that the “wife” signs…..no extras. Alex Mccord covered this on one of her vlogs.

        • PJ says:

          The husbands of Atalanta were on Bethenny today they said only the wives are paid but they get perks.

    • Exit4 says:

      I agree with you-Avery knows what’s going on in her home. Probably more then any of us. But I think when she asks for privacy for her daughters sake she is asking for people not to harass her. People on twitter, Facebook etc can be relentless. Tabloid people trying to get in touch with her/god forbid show up at her school-question her friends. Ramona will tell her story eventually.

  16. designernailsdiana says:

    I’ve been a Ramona fan a long time. My DH even likes her. She may get goofy during Turtle Time, but even I let loose once in a while (no wine needed).
    Today is snow globe day for our morning commute. I’m so sick of snow. My arthritis hurts and it’s hard to work when pain is interrupting my thoughts.
    Powell Friday Eve indeed!! Can’t wait til Friday my pay day too 😜💰💵❄️

  17. Sus says:

    I’m flabbergasted. I thought the rumors of Mario cheating were rumors!
    I feel terrible. It all seemed good on TV.

    I wonder if faith jewelry and trophy engraving is going to support Mario and his lifestyle. Will Ramona end up paying his palimony? I wonder who is going to get that beautiful apartment. If I lived in NYC, their apartment is how I’d want to live!

    Another reality TV divorce.

    Jillzy must be dancing a jig with glee.

    • Powell says:

      Ramona should tell the attorney Mario can buy her out of the apt or they sell it. She should get her half and buy herself a new apt. They can get a lot of money for that apt.

    • BB says:

      Jill’s so happy she’s giving interviews to People mag saying “I told you so.” She’s reveling in it.

    • trudie says:

      According to Wendy Williams, there have been 20 Housewives divorces. Wendy called it The Reality Show curse.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        The Housewife shows have a worse track record than The Bachelor, I think. 😀

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Let’s see here . . . here are the divorces that I can think of.

        OC – Jeanna, Vicki, Tamra, Lynn; NY – Bethenny, Luann. Ramona; Atl – Deshawn, Lisa, Nene (but remarried); NJ – Dina; DC – Mary, Cat, Michaela, Stacie; Miami – Marysol, Ana; BH – Adrienne, Camille. That’s what comes to my mind right now. Who am I missing? I’m listing just those who divorced while on the show; not before or after.

        • trudie says:

          Taylor filed for divorce before Russell killed himself. Also, does Bethenney count?

        • Pghemtchick says:

          Porsha

          It’s a semi technicality but Taylor Armstrong. Prior to Russels death they had announced they were getting divorced.

          • HuskerHuny says:

            I totally forgot about Porsha and I wasn’t sure about Taylor as to which came first. I’m also on the fence about Peggy from OC. I might be thinking about her bankruptcy though and not a divorce. But it was after she left the show.

            • HuskerHuny says:

              Forgive me as well. I said above that I was talking about the divorces while on the show and that’s not correct. Some of them divorced after the show (mostly the DC wives) and a few others like Lynn from OC and Lisa and Deshawn from Atl. This darn headache will not go away.

              • Kansas Girl says:

                Headache from the approaching weather? I had one Sunday till that tremendous front came through. Some here are suffering today too.

                • HuskerHuny says:

                  That could be KG. Snow is coming in tonight/tomorrow morning through the weekend. Usually I feel it in my broken bones, but this time it might be a headache!

              • Powell says:

                The HWs will give you a headache. I’m serious. I’m proof.

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

        20??? Oh Lord…we need a list!!

      • Powell says:

        The Reality Show Curse started w/Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. So many RS couples are now divorced. The HWs happen to have more cuz they’re the largest reality show franchise.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I think they’ll approve of him. It’s a family company- Classic Medalics and Frederick Singer and Sons.

      I think Ramona will be just fine. She has her own ventures as compared to say Porsha on Atlanta. Ramona went into it with the love/family, but due to her mom wasnt going to be out on her butt thanks to a man. Porsha could have learned from her.

      • T-Rex says:

        I agree, the Singer Family business according to all information I have read, has been around for 60 years, and frankly most of america has the attention span of a knat, and if RamonaWino and her cheatin husband MarioLethario quietly get divorced, no one that buys from that company will even care about what has transpired. I would venture to say that 90 percent of their current customers don’t even know what the Bravo show is all about, and probably don’t even watch the Bravo network. RamonaWino has several of her own businesses, like PghEmt stated and with her Bravo paycheck on top of that, she will be fine financially, I don’t think she will even qualify for any spousal support from MarioLethario.

  18. HuskerHuny says:

    Remember when Ramona was teaching Avery to be a strong business woman when she grew up? She told her that her mother was in a bad marriage and couldn’t get out of it because she depended on Ramona’s father to support her. Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy, it’s almost spooky.

    I have no respect for anyone who chooses to step outside their marriage vows and cheat with another. I have even less respect for anyone who chooses to enter into a physical relationship with a married person.

    I always told my husband that if the spirit should move him (cough, cough), please have the decency to tell me first. Then I could get his hunting rifle and shoot him first (haha, just joking! About the rifle part that is). I guess we’re doing O.K. – we’re on year 32 and half way to 33 and it really does keep getting better. I was blessed to marry my best friend, warts, fights, good, bad and everything else.

    • Powell says:

      Totally agree Husker. Talking about self-fulfilling prophecy. Remember Ramona and Bs walk across the Brooklyn Bridge? “Bethenny your going to be old and alone…..” Yikesss. Of course I hope that doesn’t happen to either of them.

    • T-Rex says:

      HH- My husband and I wrote this down and signed an agreement when we got married, if you choose to cheat, then you need to choose RESPECT and let the partner know so that they have the choice to either leave or stay. Cheating, IMO is all about Respect. I also explained that if he didn’t tell me and I found out, locks would be changed, that his things would be on the front lawn when he got home, and they may or may not be on fire depending on how mad I am. Here is the twist, it was me, about 11 years ago that had decided that I might leave the relationship, so see not always the guy. I NEVER cheated, not even emotionally, I hadn’t actually FOUND anyone just wasn’t happy. We were in a RUT, so what we did was, regrouped, decided if we really wanted to work on this, did our homework as to what we both needed to change in our lives to make us a happy couple again, and it WORKED. We are happier now than we were when we got married. I can also say that going through this Medical Shite really lets you know what a keeper I have, and I can’t believe we, well not we ME! I almost threw the towel in on him. I am also a VERY independent person, have always supported myself, had a Daddy that raised me never to count on a man for financial support, etc. Let me tell you, a lot of men do NOT appreciate nor like this kind of woman, thankfully I am married to a wonderful man that does!

      • HuskerHuny says:

        T-Rex – I’m giving you a standing ovation. You did what you had to do to make you and your marriage a happy one. You did the work – yes, work. A good marriage takes work from both individuals.

        it appears that Mario had no respect for his vows, his wife, his daughter and probably, most of all, himself. He took the easy way out . . . cheat. Regardless of the circumstances, it seems to be that he’s the once who is the dog in this situation.

        As for the other woman, she’s a snake and it appears that she and Mario are deserving of each other.

        Congratulations on your marriage T-Rex – you are an example to all.

        • T-Rex says:

          Congratulations goes to MR – T-REX! He was the one that burst my little Dino-bubble and brought my happy-ass back down to earth and made me realize what I would be losing! Although, I did what we agreed to, I didn’t even go out and actively pursue anyone outside the marriage before talking it out with him first. Then we sat down and did the work, now people get pissed at us, or make jokes, because we don’t really do anything apart outside of work. Uhm, we are best friends and we choose that, I don’t want to spend time away from him on the weekends, and we developed likes and activities we BOTH wanted to do so that we could enjoy them together, that’s why we chose to get married to each other. If folks don’t like it, oh well, it works for us and we have been married 22 years.

          Personally, I think the Singers marriage has been over for quite some time, folks were joking about MarioLethario from Season 1 of the show, so again I don’t think this was something that came out of the “blue” to RamonaWino. I think MarioLethario is a snake for not ending his marriage first, then going out and “sow his wild oats”, so that he could spare his daughter this embarrassment, but who knows they could have had an agreement on cheating.

          • Powell says:

            Mario is a coward. Straight up coward. And the GF has no respect for herself. She doesn’t value her personal worth to go down this road.

      • Powell says:

        See T-Rex I applaud you. That’s the way you do it. You told Mr. T-Rex you weren’t happy. You both made a choice to work on it and you’re together and happy and I’m sure he gets on your nerves and you get on his nerves. But you were upfront and honest. You can’t ask for more than that. Thks for sharing and congrats on being together w/Mr. T-Rex.

      • PJ says:

        All I can say is that if my husband ever decided to leave me or cheat on me girlfriend better have a j.o.b. because they are going to need it.

    #1. IPPHO, I am happy for Nicholas. He has been my favorite!! I don’t see him as having a bad attitude, I see him as a perfectionist and very passionate about his work. I still want to see the lost footage of Carlos (allegedly) messing with the oven. 😉 I would have bitched too if someone was messy in my area, messed with my oven, moved my pots and that knife would have had blood on it, in addition to the crap that Carlos didn’t clean off, if it had been me. I think Nick should restraint, lol!! I was very happy for him.

    Brandi said in her Bravo blog ” I broke my hand on a Thursday. I had my friend who is a MMA fighter and boxer wrap it for me and was happy to go to Carlton’s party on Sunday. I did not go to the doctor for a few reasons.”

    She didn’t go because it never hurt enough to go! I went back and listened to the audio several times and all I hear the snap of the materials the glove and head gear is made from. I wouldn’t know what a bone breaking INSIDE a boxing glove would sound like, but do know what boxing gloves sound like hitting face guards and there is loud snapping noise. Brandi said she wanted to hit him in the head – and she did it hard. She probably did hurt her hand. Serves her right. She immediately self-diagnosed a fracture.

    There are 27 bones in a hand, she could have broke one, but I don’t believe it. No visible bruising or swelling that day or up to 5 days later. Bandages that did not restrict hand movement (unless you count keeping 2 fingers taped together).

    Photo 3: Holding a phone with a “broken hand”.

    Photo 8: Holding a drinking with a “broken hand”. Take a look what a joke this is – she called over a “MMA fighter and boxer” wrap that looks like a piece of gauze I could put on my 2 fingers right now in less than one minute – blindfolded! She was also in the pool, her hands in the water at a commercial break teaser in the show.

    Photo 21: Using a paint brush with a “broken hand”. She decided against going to the ER to paint at Yolanda’s. This is a new bandage that is on the same 2 fingers and on the hand this time. It is much better done, but very thin and doesn’t appear substantial enough to restrict movement – as witnessed she was painting with that hand!

    • #1. I have broken fingers before, a few times, we have a drawer with every size finger guard, the metal ones. Anyway, I couldn’t do anything with the hand and the wrapping was quite elaborate just for a finger…..There was bruising on her wrist at the party. I don’t doubt that she hurt herself. But unless it was something they could operate on what would going to the doctor do?? Confirm that it is broken? I doubt I would go to the doctor if there was no swelling and just some bruising. I hate going to the Dr. and I have insurance. IDK and I don’t care. She is fine now, I guess it depends on your definition of FINE,
      mine is~~~ F*cked Up, Insecure, Neurotic and Emotional, Yep, she is FINE!!!

    • Powell says:

      So TexasTart Brandi is saying she did break her hand right? Well if she did and Lisa kept insisting she have it looked at whether Brandi has a thousand excuses why she didn’t have it looked at, why is Lisa’s concern being held against her? It just doesn’t make sense that Brandi wants us to believe so much that Lisa doesn’t care about her when clearly from Brandi’s constant tweeting that Lisa and Ken care about her. I told y’all Brandi gives me a headache. Sighhhhhhh.

      • #1 Because instead of taking advantage of the opportunities that being on a top rated TV show provides and doing something productive with her life (yes, I know she wrote a book) using her fame for charities and giving back, etc., ……breathe….. this idiot would rather feel sorry for herself, get drunk, show her hooha, continue a being a victim and do nothing that would actually give her a REAL storyline……IPPHO!

            Hahaha! My thoughts exactly. Also, how can you afford a new house, have a best-selling book, I’m just guessing- get paid alimony/child support, and still not have medical insurance? She wants to sell herself as a charity case but have us ignore all the drunken shenanigans/paparazzi pics, which tell a completely different story. You’re either 1. lying 2. seriously living outside of your means (stupid).

            • PJ says:

              She rents her house she doesn’t own it, she has said on different occasions that she and Eddie didn’t really have a lot of money and that everything was in his name. Does she get support even when Eddie has no job and has the kids half the time? I don’t think everything is the way you paint it financially for Brandi.

              • NYC Mama says:

                She tweeted that she saved money and is a good place financially and now can afford to buy a new house and she is looking since she has to get out of her rental. So she had a decent income when this was filmed and there is no good reason that she had no insurance.

                • PJ says:

                  She has said she didn’t have insurance and couldn’t get it at the time, really how does anyone know for sure that there was no good reason for her to not have insurance, it isn’t possible to know that. I would really like to see these quotes from her where she says she has money to buy a house if that’s true why is she still living in a rental and tweeting that she will be happy when can finally buy a house? Haven’t you ever known people that were out of work for a period of time and then finally got a job and started making good money. Sure they are now making good money but they also have a lot of catching up financially to do from all the time they were broke and it takes time to even things out.

                  • NYC Mama says:

                    I am sure if you are interested in seeing her tweets you can find them on her timelime. It wasn’t that long ago that she tweeted it because she was starting to look at homes to buy, not rent, once her landlord told her he was selling the house.

                    Many people have trouble affording medical insurance and I don’t fault her for that. I fault her for her irresponsible behavior about almost everything. I don’t know all the circumstances but what kind of an example is she setting for her children by being this irresponsible. Also, had this been an isolated incident I doubt many would have a comment but the cumulative affect of all her misbehavior shows a disturbing pattern. And as others have pointed out I am sure there was someone who would have paid for her medical treatment but the fact is she just didn’t want to seek any for her own strange reasons including some perceived idea that going to a Dr. would be seen as weak.

                      She managed to find a way to get herself a brand new cooch…it’s all in her book so I’m not trying to be mean by bringing this up… (the book which I bought because I just lurrrrrved my little breath of fresh air, Brandi!!). But the genuinely broken hand gets no attention, nothing….nada. zip. nyet. bupkis. I guess it’s a matter of priorities. True the new cooch can help her find a new man, but don’t overlook the power of the hand. Sometimes you gotta have hand, too!!!

                    • PJ says:

                      I didn’t buy or read her book but didn’t it come out before she broke her hand?

                      Is she, you obviously know more than I do then. However if she doesn’t have a job she won’t be able to make payments.

        IN ADDITION, this is a WORKMAN’S COMP CLAIM! She didn’t NEED insurance, she was injured “on the job”! Look it up folks, even if you are a “contract” employee if you are injured performing a job under a CONTRACT, you are eligible for WORKMAN’S COMP, which means BRAVO, or the BRAVO production company would have been liable for the bills for her Broken Hand! This whole storyline is just more lying Bullsh*t* from MORONSTFUBrandi! I DARE Mz. Andy to bring this up at the Reunion!

        • Maybe it will be like Kelly saying she was forced to go to Scary Island!!! #Hoping

        • PJ says:

          That could be true but if Bravo considers the Housewives to be independent contractors and if they signed a contract stating that they are independent contractors then if one of them are injured they would have to file a lawsuit to collect any kind of comp or medical bills, it would not be automatic. The court would then have to rule whether they were employees or not. They might very well win but it isn’t as simple as you think. Reality stars are not part of SAG.

    • PJ says:

      I’ve never broken a hand but because I’m a klutz I have broken toes a few times, tripping over furniture. There is nothing they can do and yes it hurts but besides limping it didn’t really slow me down, I have a fairly high tolerance to pain.

      I know this is an ongoing discussion and people see it their own way but I do believe she broke her hand. Her cast mates have backed her on that even saying they heard the crack. They don’t all even like her so why would they lie for her? I looked at the pic of it wrapped and it did look well wrapped to me. Not everyone reacts the same way and expecting people to react like we would or like we think they should is unrealistic.

      But in reality there is absolutely nothing Brandi could do or say that would get her any approval here at all. No matter what happens no matter what other people do to her she will get nothing but criticism and hatred. I think this is unfair because I hate to think she is beyond redemption or worse that people think she is or want her to be.

      • keeponrockingme says:

        This is just my opinion, feel free to disagree. I think Brandi backed herself into a corner this season. She wants to be the victim, but she’s naturally an aggressive, and occasionally tactless, person. She very well may have broken her hand (for all we know) and she may not be in the greatest shape financially. But going out to high-end restaurants, wearing designer clothes and going out to clubs (as the much-referenced pap pics on this blog), is not cheap. Yes, she probably gets some clothes free or gets meals comp’d based on her HW status, but I have a hard time believing she can’t afford basic medical insurance. I have a lot of friends who have struggled with insurance payments, and they are all in a lot worse shape than Brandi. Maybe I’m being too hard on her, or maybe it’s not believable because Brandi’s edited storyline doesn’t gel with what everyone sees play out on Twitter, the tabloids, etc.

        • From my experience personal insurance is sooooooooooooooooooo expensive here in California. I don’t doubt that she may not have been covered. I hope she at least had hospitalization which is somewhat affordable. My hubby was laid off for a 2 month period years ago and it was SHOCKING how expensive insurance was. And everyone talks about COBRA like that is the big answer, it is even more expensive!!!! I just find it so funny that that is what she finds shameful….and doesn’t want to talk about…..the Queen of TMI, lol!

          • Powell says:

            Yes. Why be embarrassed about not being able to afford insurance? When Lisa and Ken went w/and followed the ambulance to the ER did she have insurance? I’m not so much into if she had insurance or not. My thing is on the show as we’ve seen she said she thought she broke her hand when they finished w/the training. Brandi, Kyle and Lisa go to lunch and Lisa tells her to get it checked. Brandi over and over says,”It’s fine.” Lisa insists, Brandi says it’s fine. The ladies go to Lisa’s w/their clothes for the charity, Lisa is still concerned. Brandi has said several times that Lisa thinks she’s weak or just wants Brandi to feel bad or however she said it and Lisa acts like she’s her mother. Now on Twitter Brandi claims Lisa’s concern was only on the show, she doesn’t care about her. Yeah y’all keep saying this is part of Yo and Brandi’s “take down” of Lisa. I just don’t get it.

          • PJ says:

            We have paid our own insurance for years since right after 9/11 when the union my husband is part of basically collapsed and work became much harder to get. It is expensive and coverage has changed over the years so that what was once some of the best insurance in the country is now a lot of big co pays. I understand and sympathize with anyone having insurance issues.

        • PJ says:

          I don’t disagree with you and you stated your opinion very reasonably. Yes she has hurt herself by her own actions and put herself in this position regarding public opinion where people have started to doubt everything she says and does. I admit I don’t understand her at all and I don’t agree with or support what she says or the drunken antics. I feel she has done herself in as far as a career goes and I feel bad for her because of her children because they deserve better. But I feel that some of what she says is true and it isn’t fair to judge everything without any real knowledge.

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

            PJ, she once had the support of most people here. She brought all this disgust on herself with her disgusting behavior. You say you’re concerned for her kids. Why isn’t Brandi more concerned for her kids? Every parent knows their actions will have repercussion on their family. She acts out and deserves to be called out for it. Nobody here is commented on anything but the public spectacle she makes of herself. She can go get a j.o.b. and keep her private life private, and no one will comment on her here again.

            • PJ says:

              I suspect that will happen soon because I think she has probably ruined her career. But tell me after you make yourself infamous in reality TV where do you get this j.o.b.? I can’t answer why Brandi does anything and I have not supported her actions. However in spite of everything I also don’t agree with criticizing her every move, accusing her of lying with every word she says, there is a possibility that she isn’t wrong about everything or that she occasionally tells the truth.

        #1 Yep, I guess I do hate Brandi, it seems like such an ugly word but going by the definition I do hate her. I’m a hater. And I criticize her too. She signed up for a show that I watch and I say what I think about her. I am disgusted by her behavior and her actions. She has brought down the level of this show to the “Girls Behaving Badly” level. This was a show that I looked forward to, no longer. It is a train wreck and I can’t look away. It is going the way of the other HW shows I no longer watch, NJ, ATL, OC and who knows with NY….. There is this nifty device on my computer that lets me scroll past comments I don’t like. I don’t feel the need to tell everyone what they should or shouldn’t say, I just scroll on by if I don’t like it. But this is all IPPHO!!

              If she really “cared” about her children she would stop her profanity riddled, diarrhea of the twatter, she would stop being drunk and naked in public, she would stop talking about her STDs, her one night stands(her words, her book), making up outrageous lies to get attention. She would go back to school and get educated so that her ignorant ass could actually carry on a conversation without resorting to saying F***You at the stop of her lungs because she is too stupid to come up with a proper response. Her children are of an age where they are going to start seeing and hearing about this, if they already haven’t. She needs to either go to rehab or do some serious work on cleaning up her act, first shut down her freakin twitter, next get yourself off alcohol. She would get into proper family counseling with her ex-husband and the kids to create a wonderful, healthy environment for her children to grow up in and be happy and live in a nurturing home. Right now, they have none of this!

              • PJ says:

                • T-Rex says:

                  I think she cares, but she is incapable of doing things that would help care for her children at this point in her life, she is truly ill-equipped to be a proper parent. She really does need serious therapy, family counseling and parenting classes, and if she really truly loved her children she would put them above all this Hwives BS, all this disgusting PodCast BS, her drunken, naked escapades, her inappropriate twitter comments, etc. Again, I was on her bandwagon from the minute she hit the show, and her recent descent into hell, by placing fame over her family has really gotten me to dislike her, and the constant lying doesn’t help either. I just don’t see ruining her life and her children’s lives because she wants her 15 minutes of fame

                  • PJ says:

                    I think she is doing this because she needs to support her children. I don’t doubt that she loves her children. I was always kind of Brandi neutral and not really on the bandwagon, but didn’t like the way she was treated when she came on the show. Now it makes me laugh when people say negatively of Brandi that she fights with everyone and then include Kim and Kyle in that after the way they treated her. She needs to clean up her act on that we can agree. As to parenting classes we really haven’t seen her interact with her children but I suspect she is a good parent that needs to clean up her act during her off time with her children.

                    • T-Rex says:

                      Oh I still dislike VileKyle and SpaceCadetKim, probably as much as MORONSTFUBrandi, I find it amusing that these two idiots, after everything they have done and said about MORONSTFUBrandi, including having Murray try to do a “take down” last season and publicly chastise her, are now trying to be her “friend”. I actually find it distasteful and pretty disgusting.

      When my daughter was 5, I was doing last minute x-mas shopping with her and her 18 month old sister. Crowded parking lot at the mall; car waiting for my parking spot. Got the baby in the car seat, 5 year old got in car, and I slammed the door – with her hand on the door frame. (Mother of the year, here). Anyway, it never got swollen and she could use it with ease. A week later, on Christmas, she announced to my brother (a doctor): “Mommy slammed my hand in the car door, and now it hurts when I do this (moved her index finger).” Brother told me to get it x-rayed the next day and sure enough, she had a broken bone in her hand. She is 26 now and has never let me forget that I broke her hand.

    Up above, PJ stated “in reality there is absolutely nothing Brandi could do or say that would get her any approval here at all. No matter what happens no matter what other people do to her she will get nothing but criticism and hatred. I think this is unfair because I hate to think she is beyond redemption or worse that people think she is or want her to be.” I don’t agree. Most of us here may be snarky but we’re not mean people. I think there are plenty of things Brandi could do or say that would get her some approval here. The problem is, she’s not doing it. I haven’t seen one step Brandi has taken to get herself out of the mess she has gotten herself into. Brandi has nobody to blame for her current life situation except for Brandi. Life’s not always fair. She’s not the first person who’s husband has left her for another woman. She can keep blaming others, but that’s not going to get her anywhere. Maybe she’ll realize it eventually. Then maybe she can turn it around and show us “haters” she’s capable of being something other than a hot mess. But don’t blame us for stating the obvious. We’re only responding to what we’re seeing her do and what is coming out of her own mouth. Obviously I have way too much time on my hands. This is my second day of being snowed in and I’m suffering from a little bit of Cabin Fever. lol.

      I’m glad you have the time, thanks for saying that. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      Yes BB. That’s just how I feel. A few of us didn’t like Brandi from the first epi she was on but I’m pretty sure that most of us really liked her & thought what L & E did was crappy; when VR came on didn’t like what Shanna did to Brandi but respected Shanna for apologizing; liked Brandi for standing up to A & P but didn’t like what Brandi outed about A & Ps family. So in a nut shell Brandi’s actions have made us dislike the current Brandi.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        I was a Brandi fan last year. But I’m so over her apologies (half-hearted apologies at best) and then she turns around and makes the same mistakes. And let’s not get started on her playing the perennial victim . . .

        Brandi is capable of redemption and I would be the first in line to congratulate her on trying to make herself and thereby her life and the lives of her sons so much better.

        • Nancy says:

          Ditto.

        • plainviewsue says:

          Honestly, I miss loving Brandi. I found her to be a breath of fresh air when she first started. I loved her with Lisa and Ken. I found her to be funny and able to hold her own around Kyle. She believed her own hype. She believed the viewers’ love affair with her would never end. She believed wrong.

    • T-Rex says:

      In addition, MANY of us now blasting MORONSTFUBrandi were her CHAMPIONS for the past two seasons! I was one of them. Myself and Jnntj had some pretty good rounds the past two seasons debating each other on the subject, thankfully we agreed to disagree, yet still DEBATE, and she knows I was one of MORONSTFUBrandi’s BIGGEST SUPPORTERS. I would ask that PJ go back to the Archives of the last two seasons here. What has happened is that MORONSTFUBrandi decided, in my opinion, to show her “true colors”, she started lying, she started fights on twatter, then was astonished when folks were irritated by what she said, then she said she didn’t say it, while it’s right there in black and white. She caged her lying as stating that these are now “her truths”, whether they are truthful or not. She decided to take on fights and as she really is ill-equipped to actually debate someone logically, she just starts yelling at the top of her lungs or repeating on twatter ad-nauseum F**K YOU, I believe in one episode she said it over 50 times! She is milking this divorce thing now for 4 years, however her ex-husband has cheated on her since BEFORE she was married to him, she CHOSE to marry him, she CHOSE to stay with him, she CHOSE to actually have an OPEN marriage with him, and she CHOSE to leave him once he had an affair with CrayCrayRimes. MORONSTFUBrandi has said a lot of very stupid things and doesn’t even come close to apologizing, she thinks she is all that and a bag of chips and as I point out she “her mouth writes checks, her ass can’t cash”. She is a drunken mess MOST of the time, and this I don’t drink around my kids is an absolute BALD FACED LIE, she has been scene and even admitted to drinking while she had her son in her lap at a restaurant, HER WORDS! She doesn’t care that she has been so drunk that she has been falling down in public, her clothes sometimes were and weren’t on etc., and she doesn’t apologize for that, She doesn’t care that this crap is out there on the internet and cyber space FOREVER, her kids ARE going to eventually see this stuff. Right now, she has zero redeeming qualities, she can change that, she can STOP drinking, she can STOP using the F-word because she is so uneducated she can’t come up with a proper response so stop trying to debate folks when you can’t. Next fire your PR team, they are NOT helping you, making you “infamous” is not making you “famous”.

      • Sus says:

        I definitely gave Brandi a pass because of what happened with Eddie and what how the Vyle sisters treated her when she joined the cast. But she’s a trainwreck!!! She can’t hold her liquor. She says mean and stupid things and tries to cover that with “Oh, I say the F word and call women the C word, that’s me. Sorry but not sorry.”

        My conscience is clear thinking this. I gave her more of a break than I give any of the housewives. She blew that break by being the trashbox that Nene talks about.

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

        T-Rex…we did have some pretty good debates about Brandi didn’t we!!!!

        • T-Rex says:

          Yep, we did and we did a lot of agreeing to disagree, and that’s what great we still remained friendly while debating the issues. Then I got the CLUEPHONE and had my eyes opened to MORONSTFUBrandi’s true nature and I am disgusted to have even defended her lying POS ass.

    • mm in oc says:

      Agreed! I always root for the underdog. If Brandi had course corrected when she realized she wasn’t building her fan base this past few months, if she had tried to mend fences or apologized to the audience for her bad behavior – any of these things would have made me appreciate that she recognized her behavior and tried to change it. Instead we get the perpectual victim who lacks any self awareness and has the maturity level of a 16 year old. I’m just over it. She’s my age with two small kids and needs to get her act together.

      • Yes, and again Yes! I use to like Brandi, I was rooting for her, thought the sisters were horrible to her…who would have known that there would be an episode where the HIGHLIGHT was KIM!!!!??

      • Nancy says:

        She did make that “I’m sorry” YouTube video but she keeps repeating her behavior
        so the apology is lost on me.

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          She did the video after she saw the footage. Can’t un-ring the bells which is why she did it because, I think even she cringed at what was going to be shown.

    • PJ says:

      I sincerely hope that what you are saying is true, But what I see is that she can’t even say she broke her hand when her cast mates have supported that without people jumping all over her saying she is lying. How do you prove that and why should you have to? She has alienated a lot of her fellow housewives and even they say she broke her hand but that isn’t good enough for some people who post here. You can say there is a lot she can do to repair her image but I don’t know, it sounds good on paper. I hope she does try and repair her image, i would be very interested in seeing what happens.

      • Nancy says:

        IMHO she did fracture her hand.

        • PJ says:

          Did her cast mates support that?

          • None of them were there to see it or hear it. I heard her head hit the ground.

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

            Lisa’s cast mates on DWTS supported her and many fans did as well-what’s the difference in saying Lisa fake fainted? If you have no problem calling Lisa out for that why is it a problem when people do not believe Brandi? Lisa is not known for lying…Brandi is Queen of lies!!

            • PJ says:

              Lisa isn’t know for lying that’s true but Lisa is way smarter than any of her other cast mates in my opinion, so if she does lie it’s very difficult to tell. If you notice I very rarely comment about Lisa. The difference is this, and please don’t be offended this is not meant to be offensive, if I say Lisa maybe didn’t faint I don’t call her names or rant about what a liar she is. I just state my case based on what I see as logical, and yes I could be wrong. Lisa then gets plenty of support–people defending her saying yes she did faint. Sure there are some people who don’t think she did but it seems like more defenders. If I say I believe Brandi did break her hand and state why based on what I believe is logical evidence what happens? There are a few people who say they believe she did break her hand but by and large most people don’t have any defense of that conclusion. If I say anything that even sounds like a defense of Brandi what happens then? Not to mention that I have never once defended what she says or her drunken antics.

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

                It seems like you don’t really like Brandi so much but your upset that we are saying how much we don’t like her?
                People don’t believe she broke her hand because of things that she said or things that she did or didn’t do-and b/c of her track record of being dramatic and being a liar. I don’t care if she broke her hand or not-it doesn’t matter to me. It does bother me that she goes into victim mode about not going to the doctor b/c poor poor Brandi can afford it-really? Why would she feel the need to say that? Are we suppose to believe that she is so broke that she can’t go to see a doctor? She makes every situation worse by turning into poor Brandi-one time I would like to see her “man up” and get it done. She’s mad because Lisa acts like her mother and what does she do? She runs to her room and pouts like a teenager! If she wants Lisa to treat her as an equal the a he needs to start acting like an equal!!

                • PJ says:

                  We can debate this till forever but I don’t think there will ever be a meeting of the minds. I don’t approve of what Brandi does but I also don’t hate her. She said she didn’t have health insurance and couldn’t get approved and didn’t want to give them another reason to deny her and she didn’t want to spend the money because it could be used for her kids. See I get that and I don’t think she is playing victim, I understand where she is coming from. Maybe you haven’t had health insurance issues but I have and I get it. I see Brandi as a person who has been hurt deeply and betrayed by people and she doesn’t react well in a lot situations. She has trust issues and boundary issues. She is a free spirit that needs to learn that at 41 her antics aren’t cute anymore. She is a beauty that seems to be over using Botox and better stop before she ruins her face. She has probably relied on her beauty to get her by her whole life and at 41 there aren’t that many years of that kind of beauty left. People like that take longer to mature because a really beautiful woman gets cut a lot of slack in life. I don’t understand her reaction to Lisa, but am curious about what has gone on behind the scenes. I wish she would look at herself and clean up her act and I wish for the sake of her children that she hasn’t ruined her career and can still support her kids. I think she feels the need to have a certain kind of place for her kids to live because they have much more materially when they are with their father. She may be afraid that when they get older they will chose to live with their father because of the material things they can get there, and I have seen this happen in divorce situations so it’s a real fear. I think she has a lot of anxiety and that makes her act the way she does sometimes, not saying it’s an excuse. I feel bad for a person like this. I’m not upset because of what is said here but if I say what I think it seems to upset people. If Brandi lands on her feet I’ll join you in the dislike fest but till then I don’t want to kick someone who is down.

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

                    Just so you know I’m not upset with you defending Brandi-you can defend her till you are blue in the face-I kind of get it. What I have a little problem with is that it feels like you are judging us for judging her-ya know what I mean? I kind of did that to people last year when I was one of the only ones who didn’t like her so I understand where it comes from. I was annoyed with everyone for not seeing what I saw and they were annoyed with me for, well a lot of things I said.

                    • PJ says:

                      Thank you for understanding and I am sincerely sorry for making you or anyone else feel judged, it isn’t right because frankly I do understand why people feel the way they do.

                      I guess at the root of what I have said about Brandi, that is considered defending her, is something I haven’t wanted to say, in print that is. But sometimes you look at a person’s life and you see the potential of where it could go and you look at the probability that it will go there and you don’t want to see that for anyone. I don’t want to say it but I think you get it. I feel like this has the potential to end up in a really bad place because when people burn all their bridges they have limited opinions. Just my opinion.

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

                      I honestly get it PJ -and she has plenty of people around her to step in and boost her up-but she needs one of those BFFs to kick her in her ass and snap her out of this crap that she can’t seem to get out of. Knowing she has a support system is at least hopeful-now it needs to be helpful.

                    • PJ says:

                      Thank you. I hope she listens to someone, doesn’t seem like she does so far. That kind of stubbornness can destroy you.

                  • deco says:

                    I don’t think PJ is judging anyone here for their position ..whether or not they like Brandi. I think the point she is trying to make is that she simply states her thoughts and opinions and many of the responses are beyond snarky. They are rather harsh and the name calling is getting nasty.
                    I take no sides in this. I’m on no ” team’. I don’t even watch the HW’s anymore. Just follow a couple of the same blogs I’ve followed for years. Haven’t read the comment section here in quite awhile and I was surprised today, but not really certain as to why. That’s all I’ve got.

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

                      No one here has called PJ any names-if we call HWs names I see no problem with that as HWs are fair game in my book and in the book of a lot of other people. Snarky is the name of game when talking about reality TV-it’s what we do here and what I see on many other blogs-I don’t think we need to defend ourselves for not liking certain HWs-
                      PJ and I have gone back and forth with this for the past couple of days and came out at the end agreeing with each other-we have no problems here-no hard feelings and certainly no name calling. Just some harmless HW banter-nothing out of the ordinary.

                    • MelTheHound says:

                      I didn’t see anyone calling her names either. In fact, the exchange has been pretty respectful.

                    • TexasTart says:

                      Deco, if you don’t watch HW you are not going to understand our flow of snark or the names we call HW’s. I did not participate or witness anyone call PJ names and I thought we were as respectful as possible considering the high volume of comments that PJ produces. Whatever you saw, I would suggest you did not get the big picture and frankly are not in a position to lecture us from reading one page of comments in a blue moon.

                    • PJ says:

                      I don’t think you were saying that people were calling me names, I think you meant the other name calling, but please let me know if I’m wrong. Most people are respectful to one another here, as for me I don’t have bad feelings toward anyone. But there can be snark if you go against popular opinion which I have certainly done. I try to ignore that, people may say it’s not true but I see it. But thank you for understanding that I am absolutely not judging anyone here, just stating my opinion. I’m not a follower and I’m not afraid to have a different opinion, my own opinion. I hope this doesn’t ruffle any feathers or add unfavorably to my large volume of comments.

    • keeponrockingme says:

      If just one of her apologies were not a #sorrynotsorry version of an apology, I could stomach her a lot easier. She’s sorry for saying racist comments, but she’s not a racist and Joyce brought her down to that level. You can apply the same principle to every one of her other comments (being molested, I’m sorry I don’t know how to interview comedians) and on and on and on. After awhile it’s just so BORING.

      • PJ says:

        This is my point she apologizes but it isn’t good enough.

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

          It’s not good enough because she does the same stupid thing over and over and has people telling her she is great b/c of it. She says stupid things and says her half assed sorry/NOTSORRY and then turns around and says something worse-she has zero accountability and sees nothing wrong with the things she says or does. If she changes and grows up a tiny bit I’m sure her apologies will actually mean something-till then she will be SORRYNOTSORRY!!!

          • HuskerHuny says:

            Saying you’re sorry but not understanding why you had to apologize in the first place, is not an apology.

            I would rather Brandi would say she meant to call Joyce a black girl and she won’t apologize for it regardless of how many people are disgusted by it. That’s a woman who says what she means and stands behind it.

            • And saying “IF I hurt your feelings” is not the same as saying “I am sorry I hurt your feelings” or “I am sorry for saying a stupid, ignorant thing that hurt your feelings”…. “IF” negates the sorry IPPHO. Just like saying “But”, negates what you just said, “I am sorry I hurt your feelings BUT I don’t know what I am doing”….#sorrynotsorry
              She needs to “own” it, LOL!!! 🙂

            • PJ says:

              I think Brandi did apologize for making an inappropriate comment, which she did make but took exception to being called racist. I personally don’t believe she is a racist but her comment was inappropriate. Joyce took it and ran with it to get herself attention. Brandi has said many inappropriate things which I don’t want to go into all of them right now. Perhaps Brandi should have just said she was sorry without explaining, that is always better because when you explain you always sounds like you are justifying. Still my point is she did apologize and it wasn’t a good enough apology. I don’t think she understands the difference but then that takes maturity.But an apology is a good start.

              • I agree, apologize and don’t try and explain yourself. I do feel sorry for Brandi, I am not without compassion. I personally don’t think 4 years is enough time to “be over it” as far as her marriage is concerned. I just wish she would start listening to someone that would give her some advice to get some help getting over it. She is so stubborn and it just makes me sad. I liked her so much, so maybe that is where my passionate dislke comes from, that and all the stupid shit she’s said and done…. 🙂

                • PJ says:

                  I agree with you completely and you said it beautifully. I think you hit the nail on the head people liked her and she has really disappointed them and so they are expressing that in their dislike of her. I was never fully on the Brandi bandwagon to begin with but felt bad for her because of Kyle, Kim, Faye and even Adrienne. Though I thought Brandi should have kept her mouth shut about Adrienne. I’m sure I defended her at the time just because i didn’t like Adrienne.

                • Powell says:

                  Nope 4 yrs is not long enough to be over it. She’s got the right to be mad until the dat she dies if she wants to but she can’t take it out on other people. Take it out on Eddie. Get Carlton to make her an Eddie voodoo doll to stab w/a knife if that will help her. If her kids get betrayed by a school friend or a GF is she going to tell them to take their hurt and pain out on other people around them? That’s why we’ve had Columbine, Sandy Hook, VA Tech a host of other schools because the kids/young adults have been or felt hurt by other people and then went to these places of education that are supposed to be safe and took their anguish out on other people. We can’t go around in life taking out our pain on people that don’t deserve it. If Brandi can’t see that then she’s not just lost to herself she’s lost to her sons.

          • keeponrockingme says:

            Agreed, actions speak louder than words. If she simply said “sorry” and moved on, I could take her apologies at face value, but just read any of her blogs this season after she’s offended someone, and you’ll find they’re full of excuses and non-apologies.

    Ramona is a strong woman – a little crazy maybe, but strong – she will be fine – I’m sorry their marriage is coming to an end – I never really cared for Mario but I never thought that this would happen – as for Brandi – she is an immature, insecure uneducated woman – and the last place she should be is in the public eye – I know first hand what cheating can do to a marriage and how it hurts your very soul – I watched it consume my daughter and turn her into a completely different person – it was a long road back from that, but she made it – Brandi is her own worst enemy and is kidding herself if she thinks she can do it alone – she cannot – she will continue to fail until she accepts help and starts working to get strong instead of famous – the road she is on now is not only bad for her, but damaging to her children as well – the fact that she does not see that, or at least will not let that be her priority is a sad thing, and I pity her –

    I love you guys – soo much!!

      You speak of the twins often but I must have missed the part where they are your grandkids..

      • shamrockblonde says:

        *hugs Jeff really hard* yes, the twins are my granddaughters but I have had them with me since they were babies, and tend to think of them as my own children – I am really blessed – I can’t tell you how many times they would come into our room in the middle of the night and crawl into bed with Mr. Shamrock and I – there was a time when one was having bed wetting issues – she would come in and before she could climb in, I would hear my husband say

        “which one are you?”
        “it Shamrock 1 Papa”
        “is your bed wet?’
        “yes”
        “ok”
        and he would get up and change her and then carry her back to our bed and tuck her in and then go change her bed all the while being careful not to wake the other one –
        now when he comes home from work at night, its usually that same twin that has fallen asleep on the couch waiting for him and they walk up the stairs to the twins’ room and he tucks her in and kisses her goodnight – I can hear them whispering their I love you’s to each other – sweet music – at any hour –

    For the record I didn’t like Brandi from day 1. I had only Kit and Jill and a few others to back me up! Lol! And I didn’t like her for all the reasons listed above and maybe a few others. The reason everything she does gets scrutinized is because Brandi contradicts everything she does. Nothing ever adds up. But if she does something I agree with Ill back her up. Don’t think it’s happened yet. If I like a housewife and they do wrong-Ill say they’re wrong.

    Examples-I like Teresa, but what she & joe did was wrong and they will be punished. Although, I am still wondering how much she knew. But it’s the courts job to figure that out-not my job. I don’t like Jill (but not on the level if some of you guys lol) but when Lynn died she was respectful. Others were not.

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

      I feel the same about Teresa -on the show I was on her “team” but with the legal stuff-idk?
      I like Lisa but I can see her as manipulating-I love Ramona but I change the channel when she’s on sometimes b/c she makes me uncomfortable with what she says. I always liked Kyle but I see why people don’t. Brandi never had me-something about her rubbed me the wrong way from day one. I didn’t like how the sisters treated her on game night but I think there was more to the story. Brandi doesn’t do anything “nice” Brandi does things for a reaction-it’s gotten so old and boring.

    • I change my mind every day about most of the HWs…. but I have said from Season 1 that I wouldn’t want Lisa as a friend and that her “just joooking darhling” would get old fast. She is a cutter, she cuts you and smiles. I don’t like that in a friend, it’s weak, ippho. Brandi I felt bad for because of the way she was treated from the get go. And I enjoyed her calling people out at first. She has dug her own grave. Kyle I liked her Season 1 and now I go back and forth on her. I love a drunk Taylor and a drunk Allison. Crawlton is making Kyle look good. Joyce I love that she calls people out but after watching her on WWHL, ugh, she is so annoying. I don’t mind the hair flip, cuz, well, I have long hair. But she is a giggly, chatty girl, not my cup of tea. Kim…..she had the best scenes this week. I miss Camille, she was so awful the first season and it was great. I don’t really care all that much about any one of them because all of them are actresses. They all want screen time and I think it would be a riot if they all were telling the truth about each other as in Carlton is right about Kyle, Kyle is right about Lisa, Brandi is right about Joyce, Lisa and Kyle etc., etc. ad nausem They are all nuts to be on this show. Lisa is the smartest of them all she is like the Teflon Don….lol. She is strategic, it’s not a bad word, she has played the game longer than any of them and she knows what she has to do. She is a fan favorite and I think shows the Beverly Hills we all thought we were going to see!!! She is promoting her business, doing charity and succeeding. LOL, I forgot all about YoFo, so I guess that is telling, ha!!

That guy was a total Skeezoid down in Miami, I heard Big Poppa is a skeezoid as well, they are both really gross, and I can’t believe anyone found these two even remotely attractive, or wanted to spend social time with them. That Thomas guy was completely repugnant and I hope he gets deported back to Germany

      Yes I do-he has been on NY a few times and even guest bartended on WWHL-he is young-20 years old. He stopped interning for her this year and moved on to bigger things. He’s still in school-so smart! I call him the next Andy Cohen but a good one. I know him since the day he was born-calls me Aunt Jill-I love him like a family member. He is going to be very successful in his life!!!

He hasn’t said much about Sonja’s kid and I haven’t asked-(I don’t really ask him a lot of questions b/c he would stop taking my calls if I asked him everything I want to know!!) He can’t tell me a lot that goes on filming wise and he would never betray Sonja’s confidences-but I know he thinks she great-she’s funny and she’s a lot to handle-in a good and not so good way!!

    Here’s the radar story about S’Mario’s girl toy.

    “Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer filed for divorce on Tuesday, but her estranged husband Mario Singer‘s love troubles could be just beginning. RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the woman Mario has been seeing, NY socialite Kyle “Kasey” Dexter, admitted in court documents to being locked up in the psych ward with an “unhealthy obsession” over another married man just months ago, and she sued him for sexual harassment when he gave her the brush-off!

    Dexter filed an explosive sexual harassment lawsuit against her former lover Gregory Peters, who was her boss at Manhattan’s ritzy La Palestra gym, on November 12, 2013.

    According to court documents obtained by Radar, Dexter interviewed for a job at the gym in May 2012, despite the fact that she had no valid personal trainer license. Peters “specifically hired [Dexter] because he was attracted to her, despite her lack of work experience,” the documents claim.

    Read The Court Documents

    As such, when Dexter started working at the gym Peters soon required her to “trail” him, the documents claim, and suspended her personal training pay.

    “Very soon after,” the documents state, they “began a consensual sexual relationship.”

    Peters “would ask [Dexter] to have sex with him on various pieces of equipment and training tables at La Palestra,” the complaint claims. “Even though the sexual relationship was consensual, [Dexter] still hesitated and/or protested having sex on the equipment,” but her boss “would convince [her] to have sex on the equipment because he was the manager and could make [Dexter] a great trainer.”

    “[Her] ability to become a regular trainer at La Palestra in the future was contingent on her submission, or refusal, to have sex on certain pieces of gym equipment,” the complaint claims.

    Meanwhile, despite that pressure, the couple’s relationship “became very intense” as Dexter “started to become increasingly infatuated/in-love” with Peters.

    Dexter admitted that she “developed an unhealthy obsession with him,” according to the claim, yet she still “continued to engage in the sexual relationship.”

    Then in early July 2013, the documents state, Peters “realized that this escalating affair could negatively affect his marriage and abruptly ended the relationship.”

    Apparently, that sent Dexter into a tailspin.

    “The end of the relationship and interactions [with Peters at work] continued to affect [Dexter emotionally and psychologically,” the complaint explains, “and as a result, in or around July 2012, [Dexter] was rushed to the Lenox Hill Hospital emergency room for severe panic attacks.”

    Dexter asked bosses to make sure she wouldn’t interact with Peters at work, to no avail, the documents claim. In the meantime Peters allegedly “continued to repeatedly call [Dexter] and leave threatening and nasty messages, such as, ‘I wish I had never met you’ and ‘I regret the day that I ever hired you.’” He also told her to “Leave the company — resign already,” and “Become a stripper, that’s what you’re good at,” according to the complaint.

    “But Defendant Peters would then also leave [Dexter] messages saying that his wife was away for the weekend and that he missed her,” the documents claim.

    Cracking under the pressure, Dexter claims she “voluntarily checked herself into St. Luke’s Psychiatric Ward,” around September 1, 2012, where she was kept for roughly ten days.

    Doctors allegedly ordered her not to contact Peters, but “Plaintiff simply could not resist” and Peters “failed to heed doctor’s advice” to cut off contact with her.

    Eventually, Dexter was fired in November 2012, and by the end of the month she hired an attorney to file the sexual harassment lawsuit.

    In a response, Peters and La Palestra denied the majority of her charges, insisting that all of Peters’ interactions with Dexter were consensual.

    According to court documents, the case is still ongoing, with Peters and Dexter scheduled to meet with a mediator on February 11.

    Peters did not respond to Radar’s requests for comment.

    Now, Dexter has reportedly moved on to another married man, Mario. According to Page Six, she was by his side in the Hamptons last week when cops where called over an alleged domestic dispute with his estranged wife, Ramona.

    • Nancy says:

      That should tell him to keep it in his pants.

    • California35 says:

      Wow!!! This is crazy. Poor Ramona and Avery and actually Mario. If that was just a fling to him, she may not let him get away with just a fling.

    • Mene Seela says:

      She sounds like she values herself in sexual terms, which is pretty exciting to a 60 yr old guy like Mario. I can’t imagine they have interesting conversations LOL.

      Run Ramona run! That new chick is Kray Kray!!

      • I Need A Life! says:

        I have a feeling we’re all being played. NY Housewives is about to start. No ratings last year. Everyone is bored. NOW this???? I still can’t get the scene from the Hamptons clear. Who calls the police to come to the house and why? Does Ramona have a broken pinot wine bottle held to this chick’s neck and Mario calls? Does Ramona have a broken wine bottle next to Mario’s exposed parts? Does the girlfriend call because she’s not used to seeing Ramona’s eyes bug out? Do you really offer a cop a glass of wine when he enters? Not in Chicago. Must be different out there. So, my bet is on Ramona giving Page 6 the story. “I even offered the police a glass of wine.” As I mentioned earlier today, Ramona’s ticked off that they didn’t get the name of the wine in the story.

        Then JZ makes a blatant tweet about Mario Choking Ramona. “You go girl. Get him.” And now we band together in a show of sisterhood around Ramona. Something’s up or you really can’t make this up and Bravo wins.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Interesting theory. I don’t want to believe that of Ramona …. But I guess you never know

        • T-Rex says:

          Interesting, like it. I am sorry her marriage may be broken, but those here probably know I DISLIKE RamonaWino, I dislike her antics, I dislike her demeanor and pretty much everything else about her. Is she a good businesswoman, yep will giver her that, she did well for herself before she met s’MarmioLethario. Oh, and again will re-iterate, that woman would call the press for a bowel movement, if it got her name and brand out there, so not sure as to why she wants all this PRIVACY, you can’t have it both ways!

          • chismosa™ says:

            Wow I didn’t know Ra was so press hungry — honestly ! ???
            Ok!?

    Good morning! Once again, trying to read all the comments is making my eyes totally glaze over.

    Walk on by….. but I did find a dailymail link from VV that showed a bruised and swollen hand! It doesn’t change how I feel about you know who…and you know why! Walk on by…..walk on by….

    Good luck and good day! 🙂

      • TexasTart says:

        I will not take responsibility for any nail biting damage, lol. 😉 was just referring to something upthread.

    • VV™ says:

      TT, I posted because I remember reading it back when it happened and I think when the episode aired I posted as well ( or around that date).
      I don’t really care one way or the other (broken or not). It was something that if it happened to me, I would’ve gone to the ER right away.

      • TexasTart says:

        She’s a liar in my book whether the hand was broken or not, it was to make an example of her embellishments….I didn’t question she hurt it. It’s like her saying she was sued other things she has said that appear, or turn out differently. So I stand corrected on the fact it was bruised and swollen.

        Likewise, I would get my hand checked even if I had no money because my livelihood depends on my hands! And I would not call a friend a MotherFr for caring either.

        And while I’m thinking of it, when I posted additional information to some of your tweets, it was not because I didn’t think you knew, it was for the benefit of people that don’t follow daily and people don’t always look at dates and assume what is brought in (tweets) are real time. And you know how we can discuss Fatburger over and over, but it’s brand new to some. Just sayin’ likewise – I was not picking on you. 🙂

      http://celebs.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474981971275

    • T-Rex says:

      First off, it would be the FATHER of the children seeking custody, WTG eOnline for trying to make it more salacious that it needs to be. In addition, they have used a “SOURCE” which means MORONSTFUBrandi is the one starting the rumor, yet again, I also noted that she called she and Eddie as “ghetto rich”, but didn’t know squat about her finances. Good grief, she has not only diarrhea of the twitter, but also diarrhea of the mouth. As for the sex with gross guys, that was evident in those TamponGate pictures when she was shoving her tongue down that guys throat that was trying to help her. He was probably a nice guy, but he was no looker, and nothing wrong with that, but she is the one that says she has to be around “beautiful” people. Well, unless she’s as horny as a random alley-cat, then any port in the storm will apparently do! Oh, and you know she is bringing those guys home too, wonderful role model for her sons. She has lied about drinking in front of them, she has been hungover in front of them, has random dudes over in front of them. Yep in the parent department I think Man-candy would be far better, IF he wasn’t married to CrayCrayRimes, cause I don’t think CrayCray is that stable either

      • Exit4 says:

        T-Rex I read above you’re not a Ramona fan. Me either! I’m not alone….I have no problem with people being straight or honest-even if the truth hurts. BUT I don’t like people whose “truth” is meant to hurt. Like Brandi. She can be amusing at times-but I find her and Sonja a little sad. I do feel for her marriage ending, but she turns me off more often then not. I was totally on heathers side when she didn’t bring her to London!

        I’ll stick to you like glue during NYHW. Lol.

        • T-Rex says:

          Exit, now if we can just get you over that Teresa-love affair, it would be great, HA! I have ALWAYS disliked RamonaWino, because she waits until she is drunk(okay every day after 3pm), to slide in those really horrible insults, she is that person that goes for the jugular first, then backs off with, “well it’s the truth”. She is another one that can’t handle the truth when it’s thrown her way either! Another dish it out, can’t take it. Now that she is single RamonaWino and the SonjaTheDrunkinSlut, are going to be those two old cat ladies I fear, they are definitely going to be “Desperate Housewives”. I too was on Heather’s side regarding London, RamonaWino does not know the first thing about proper decorum, so I would NEVER invite her to a formal dinner that included my business partners, with some drunk who can’t keep her mouth shut.

          • Exit4 says:

            LOL! I do like Teresa-it’s my weakness. 🙂 But in my defense, I’m not blindly loyal or blind to her faults. It’s going to be really interesting to see how it all plays out…

      • How do you not know how many mortgages you have on your home…. It is just gonna get worse because she is supposedly going to be going on a book tour. So more opportunities to say stupid stuff. If she were smart it could be an opportunity to clean up her image but you just know she won’t be able to help herself and is going to spout off….

          Thankfully, more opportunity for her children to be with their FATHER instead of her too! Although, he gets them half of the time now anyway. Regarding her finances, it’s like when she posted she was “buying” a house, yeah right, you can barely pay your rent, you are fighting your Landlord(by the way the second landlord she has had runins with since she has been on the show, hmmm), just because your pea brain is computer shopping on realtor.com and you THINK you can afford something doesn’t mean you can.

      • mrs peabody says:

        It won’t be as easy as people think for him to get full custody if that is what he decides to do in the end. I hope he does try and maybe it will be the wake-up she needs but I doubt it.

  62. chismosa™ says:

    Where are they getting this 27 years married thing????
    Even when the news first broke I think they got the years incorrect as well- something like 22 years was mentioned – when she had the renewal of 17 yrs of marriage just a few seasons back on the show.

    And this is People mag. They usually have their $hit on point.
    LAME

    From People:

    The reality star, 57, filed for divorce this week from her husband of 27 years, and while Ramona loves Mario, the friend believes Ramona and their daughter Avery will be fine no matter what happens.

    • T-Rex says:

      Well RedHeadedLUNATIC can’t do math and stupid reporter went with her facts and not the real facts. UGH Welcome to the world of hiring morons at People magazine!

    • California35 says:

      Well didn’t they (or another person) said she got married at 37? And if she is 57 now, isn’t that basic math? 😛 i think i this point they really have no facts, so they are just guessing and/or by whatever is talking tells them (JZ?) who knows! I believe it really is 20 if is she got married at 37 or the original date given 22-23. If she had the renewal on their 17th year (close to 18th anniversary).

    • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

      That’s scary. When I was preparing for my cancer surgery the doctor asked me if she should prescribe some zanax. I said no I would go home and pet my cat as that calms me down.

      We wont discuss the dosage she gave me of advair which nearly put me in cardiac arrest.

      Fortunately I made it through LOL.

      • Advair almost killed me!!! It took me a long time to figure it out and my mom kept saying do you think it could be the Advair? OMG, it was horrible!

        • Kansas Girl says:

          I take Advair. I told the doc I would NOT take 2 doses/day. Only 1. If I take too, my chest hurts. She seemed puzzled, but agreed. Maybe I need to read up a little more on Advair! Maybe I need to reduce the amount more. it really does help control asthma, but I’d rather not be killed by it.

        • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

          I had sustained rapid heart beats which scared the bejesus out of me and it gave me a metalic taste in my mouth so eating was not enjoyable. The weight loss was good though 🙂 When I returned to my regular doctor 1 month after the surgery I told him I was not taking it ever again so he changed the script. I also told Express Scripts (who provides my mail order meds) I would never take it again either. Horrible stuff.

      • T-Rex says:

        WOW! JWIJ thanks for that, I won’t take XANAX either, but I am on a stronger med right now, but that’s due to the spinal surgery which is still healing. I will make a mental note that ADVAIR is also on the DO NOT TAKE list if they want me to take something else!

        • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

          T Rex if anybody tries to give you prozac run away as fast as you can. It made me feel like I was leaning even though I was standing upright and it inflammed my parotid gland so I looked like a lopsided chipmunk. I had to take tylenol with codeine and sleep to get through the pain that week.

    • BB says:

      This is from the article. Sound familiar? “You watch a sitcom and someone says, ‘Oh, I can’t get to sleep without white wine and a Xanax!’ and all I can think is, Wow, that’s not funny after you’ve lived through it.”

      • HuskerHuny says:

        After going through a few surgeries, major and not so major, my doctors would prescribe meds to help me relax and then sleep, but only enough for a few days at the most. Knowing how addictive some of these drugs are, I even cut my ibuprofen or aspirins in half when I absolutely need to take something for a headache or every day aches and pains. If I need to relax, I go to bed and turn the TV on. That will put me to sleep pronto!

        • T-Rex says:

          HH- Since I am still on some pain meds for everything I am going through, like you I cut down on a lot of it, and am taking less than prescribed, I also note my intake on a chart to make sure. I take the chart with me to my doc appt every week, of course he never asks for them, but just in case, I have them. In addition, while I love my Jameson Whiskey, haven’t had a drop of alcohol since I was first sick and given the pain meds. Alcohol and pain meds DO NOT MIX, not sure why folks thinks that they are immune from the effects of these two items together. This is what a lot of folks “accidentally” overdose and die from~

      Okay, I just don’t get this: She competed as a gymnast in 2 Olympics. She began skiing 6 months ago and she’s ready to compete in the Olympic free-style skiing event???

      It’s a shame she was injured, nevertheless.

    • MelTheHound says:

      I kind of have to side with Brandi on this one. I think the article (that I saw a headline for) was that the singer (LR) was pushing the cheater (EC) to sue for full custody or something like that. Nothing has happened YET so to say that she’s losing her kids, is false. Not to say it could never happen but it’s up to a judge, not LR, the ragmags, or Brandi’s twitter followers.

      • T-Rex says:

          • T-Rex says:

            CrayCrayRimes and ManCandy have not been doing anything to egg on MORONSTFUBrandi, my opinion is she planted this to get A) her ass some more publicity and to B) see if those two would “bite” at what was printed because she wants them to react and get her more publicity and she can then have an excuse to “go at” CrayCray again, we all know she wants to

            • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

              Everything she does gets a reaction, typically negative. Seems that for the past few months the Brandi / Grimes feud has cooled off. Truthfully, I don’t know if it ever really existed or if it was played by one or the other to generate sympathy. I’ve been pretty quiet about it all lately except for what I see on the show. I don’t claim to know what goes on in her or any other woman’s mind but what she shows us is absolutely bat shit crazy and appears to be attention seeking (which she gets). You know that I was once a huge supporter but all of her STFU and FU business really turned me off of her. I’m not going to fight with or even debate with anyone here about her or any other HoWife. Feelings end up getting hurt and that is something I never wanted to do. I have gone back to telling the dog what I really think and if he verbalizes a response, I’ll be sure to share it with an IMTHPO disclaimer 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      The evidence is clear

    • Cartwheels says:

      LMAO !!
      I do think she broke her hand
      I do believe that she doesn’t have medical insurance and due to many medical pre-existant conditions :HPV, depression, anxiety, her medical insurance might cost her a whole lot of money so she is winging it without insurance which at her age is foolish.
      Brandi broke her hand on the job and could have filked a claim for workman comp but due to regulations she would have received money but while getting healing she would have been able to work at all and they were in the middle of filming.
      Brandi could have gone to the emergency room and get the x-rays and get a cast for less than 1000 and have a payment plan for it but IMO she was milking it for sympathy, after all the tampon string pictures were very fresh.
      Brandi doesn’t have any kind of priorities or she would realize that she is not getting any younger and all the money she spends on cosmetical procedures would probably of better use by having medical insurance.

      Brandi’s problem is that she has lied (embellish) so much that anything and everything she says is questioned, she owes that only to herself.

      • Nancy says:

        When Brandi first started with the Housewives she came in with a fractured foot.
        She was only a “friend” of the housewives so she wasn’t making a lot of money so
        how could she afford medical treatment then and not now?

        • Pghemtchick says:

          Also, if she was without insurance the ACA kicked in I want to say in 2012 for pre existing conditions. Most of the gov sites are going down, but as of last June all states switched to the federal program. Here’s their site: https://www.pcip.gov/Whos_Eligible.html

          If you goto premiums you should be able to see her rate for Cali. I don’t have flash. Anyways, Pa was under $300 a month.

          • T-Rex says:

            I guess I am not understanding the above, the ACA wasn’t available in 2012 so it wouldn’t matter about pre-existing back then would it? I looked and it was still in the courts and the website wasn’t even up then. I could be wrong but I did check.

            • Pghemtchick says:

              It’s tricky but yes. ACA was in effect for pre existing conditions in 2012. I’m 100% positive of this as due to my foot and my Cobra ($500/month for just me) ending I was uninsurable. I opted for the state preexisting plan. It was ran via the state at the time and was a Blue cross plan. It was not welfare/Medicare/etc. It was $282 a month. It was rolled out pre ACA website and the market place. In July 2013, all state ran Pre existing insurance plans switched to PCIP which is a federal plan. The monthly rate dropped to $268 for Pa residents iirc. PCIP was set to expire once ACA via the marketplace took over and the mandate happened in Jan 2014. In actuality, it’s extended until the end of March and then it will no longer exist as all insurances are no longer able to deny over preexisting conditions.

              Think of the state and PCIP, the safety net to get those uninsured due to a health issue on an insurance ASAP vs waiting 2 more years for the market to open up.

              Pa’s program had you fill out an online form where you chose your condition you were denied for. So California would have been similar and as of July 13 would have been the same. It was a wide array of conditions: arthritis, cancer types, heart, depression, etc. it was extensive. The other requirement was insurance free for 6 months. If both were met, you just paid the premium and welcome aboard.

              • Exit4 says:

                It was-but only for children. Adults came in this year.

                • Pghemtchick says:

                  Gonna have to agree to disagree on this. I’m well over 21 and was on the pre existing plan that was established prior to this year. That’s why I used 2012 as a reference point. That’s the furthest I looked back into my accounts.

                  It’s a confusing law with a few twists and turns.

              • PJ says:

                This link shows that under 12,000 people were enrolled in this plan in California in 2012, why so few people? The ACA went into effect this year for adults, but there were some exceptions previously. I don’t know all the details but none of this proves Brandi wasn’t telling the truth.

                • Pghemtchick says:

                  Please show me where I said she was lying? I stated there was an option.

                  • PJ says:

                    You attached a link which I believe you posted suggesting that Brandy could have had this type of insurance if she wanted to, negating whatever pre existing condition she may have had. However after looking at the link I noticed that under 12,000 people actually did have this in 2012 in California, this is what’s stated on that link. The ACA did not go into effect for adults until this year. I don’t recall saying you called Brandi a liar I just pointed out what the link you posted says. I’m assuming you attached that link with the intention of people looking at it. I then asked why so few people were enrolled in this in 2012 if as you stated it would automatically kick in if you had a preexisting condition.

      • Powell says:

        Cartwheels I didn’t think about Workman’s Comp.

        • Cartwheels says:

          I did. I have a friend who slipped on ice and broke her wrist while leaving her office, on the parking lot of he corporation she works for. She applied for workman’s com and got it. The downsize of it was that she was not allowed to do anything work related whie she was on comp’s pay, not even check her emails at risk of being accused of fraud. It about killed her because she knew that nobody else could take care of her responsibilities without proper training and she would have a whole pile of work coming back . I figure that probably the same applies for anybody who is on workman’s comp and that is why Brandi didn’t use it. I mean her accident happened while on the work, but then again I am not 100% sure of the terms of he contract these hw sign. Are they even entitled to workman’s comp?

          • Exit4 says:

            Yes, she would have been entitled. The production companies have to cover everyone in their employ-independent contractor or not. Any kind of accident can happen when you’re filming-to anyone. Say Yolanda broke the instructors neck-they’d have to pay him for b/c he was technically working for them-except in that case it would fall under liability insurance, which they are also required to carry. As far as continuing to work-I don’t know what your friend does, if her wrist injury hindered her job (like lifting or using a computer)-but in Brandi’s case there’s no reasonable couldn’t continue to film. Using her hand isn’t vital to the job. Her mouth on the other hand……

    It’s almost here. 🙂 Look for these skaters on the medal stands.

    • Mene Seela says:

      Nancy, did you see this?
      There’s Already Some Figure Skating Drama
      This year’s women’s figure skating intrigue is nothing compared to 1994’s Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan saga, but it’s looking like Team USA will still come in to Sochi under a cloud of controversy. At this weekend’s US championships, American officials decided to put Ashley Wagner, 22, on the team, despite her fourth-place finish. That ended the Olympic dreams of Mirai Nagasu, 20, who had secured the bronze medal at the competition. It was a rare move, as a third-place finish traditionally secures a ticket to the games.

      Unlike other countries, US figure skating takes into account an athlete’s entire body of work. That was good news for Ashley, a celebrated two-time US champion, since even she admitted her performance was less than stellar. She said, “When I look back on my career, this one horrible performance isn’t what makes me the skater I am. That doesn’t define me.” Following her performance, she also tweeted, “I am so sorry. I let you all down.” But after the announcement, Ashley, who barely missed the 2010 games, wrote, “It’s been a long 4 years to this point. I’m so proud and incredibly grateful that I’ll be representing my country at the Olympics in Sochi!”

      As for Mirai, she took the high road: “Though I may not agree with it, I have to respect the decision the federation made. And I’m grateful to everyone who has supported me and look forward to what comes next in my skating career.” Gracie Gold, 18, who won gold at the US championships, and 15-year-old Polina Edmunds, who took silver, round out the team. You can watch Ashley’s and Mirai’s performances below.

      • Nancy says:

        Mene…I sure have and the skating community is going crazy right now with
        many petitions going around to get Mirai back on the team. I have to say that
        right now I’m embarrassed for my sport. Ashley Wagner was going to be named
        on the team before her skates hit the ice during National and it all has to do about
        money. Ashely and Lindsey Vonn were the faces of the Sochi games. Unfortunately
        Vonn blew her knee out so they were left with Ashley alone however they assumed
        that she would have skated well enough at Nationals to be named on the team.
        When she didn’t they had to think on their feet as the sponsors (NBC) put pressure
        on the USFSA (US Figure Skating Association) and basically told them you have to send Ashley to Sochi. My heart breaks for Mirai and yes I signed the petition.

        • Mene Seela says:

          It’s too bad both ladies can’t go.

          • Nancy says:

            The USFSA has NEVER considered the “body of work” to pick the team so that
            is a downright lie. The only time this has come up was when Nancy Kerrigan was
            attacked by the Harding scandal and when Michelle Kwan was injured right before
            the Torino games. This country has made a fool of themselves all for the sake of
            money. IMHO Ashley should step down and give the spot to Miria as she deserved
            it.

  76. T-Rex says:

    ALSO RIDDLE ME THIS ABOUT MORONSTFUBRANDI and her lack of money/insurance/bullshite/garbage/lyingsackofcrap.

    She has been playing out more ailments these past two seasons than all the Housewives of ALL the franchises combined, yet this one instance of this “alleged” broken hand she can’t afford to fix. WELLLL then who the HELL is paying for these jaw treatments that she is requiring to take care of her FAKE LISP, that comes and goes depending on how needy she needs to be that episode??????????????? From what I remember those are HUGELY expensive and MOST dental treatments for this ailment are not even covered under Dental Insurance which is NOT part of the ACA(obamacare) mandates. If she can’t afford medical insurance she certainly can’t afford Dental. From what I understand at some point MORONSTFUBrandi noted they were $1500/treatment and she had had 5 or so treatments, so she can fork out 7500 to fix the fake lisp but not her “alleged” broken hand. In addition, she has had her Lips done, that’s $2100/up(), because she couldn’t move her top lip from overfilling she said that she accidentally got burned, being burned by I guess lip wax, since the plumper stuff doesn’t burn, Botox at 850/pop that must be done every six months, and usually takes from 4 to 5 shots, at 850/shot. Didn’t she claim to have burned her hand at some point, but had a miraculous recovery on that as well, with no medical intervention either. Look I hate the bitch, but the lying has gotten truly OUT OF CONTROL.

      T-Rex…this is what I don’t get. Everyone does or doesn’t do something without
      a reason so I wonder what was the reasoning behind her choice to not seek
      treatment on her hand. If it was just for the attention she could have gotten it
      anyway coming out with a cast on her hand so I’m not sure she was playing
      the victim card this time. Plus she probably would have walked out with some
      pain meds.

    The first chapter of Brandi’s book is available for free on iBook-I just read and it’s so ummmmm Brandi!!!! F this F that…in fact the first line of the book is:
    FU*K ME….

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Sounds like an invitation to me 😛

    • chismosa™ says:

      OMG you just couldn’t resist ! LOL😳😳

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

        Chapter 3 is titled : Douche Bags part 1
        Chapter 5 is titled: Douche Bags part 2
        ….don’t even ask what Chapter 4 is titled!!!!
        This book is going to be a best seller and Brandi is going to actually consider herself a writer…that is so depressing!!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Does tat mean you liked the book?

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

            I only read The Introduction titled :How To Get Screwed and Chapter 1 titled: I Survived, Now What?
            If I form my opinion on that little bit that I read I would say no, I did not like the book. Her first book was kind of like reading her twitter but this one you can tell she thinks she’s feeling like she can say anything and people will just LOVE it-maybe some people will…idk?!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Many of you watch, Dexter, right? I came to Dexter a litte late because I ow have Netflix. As soon as I saw Deb I realized who Brandi is trying to copy….it’s Deb!!! But what Brandi doesn’t realize, perhaps, is that Deb gets away with extreme language because she is a fictional character!

      • chismosa™ says:

        That’s so funny Lainey. Deb is a fantastic character.
        I won’t say more because I don’t want to spoil it for you

      • California35 says:

        Interesting … The language sure, but Deb is smart and strong. Back up her words. Im sure you meant that brandi is trybg to be that kind of woman. 🙂

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Well, I just meant that Debra Morgan uses foul language and is still considered charming, cute, she gets promotions at work so it doesn’t hurt her as a professional, etc. Brandi uses foul language at the “Debra Morgan” level, but because Brandi is not a fictional character on a series, Brandi doesn’t come off as charming, nor professional, nor cute..in other words, what works for the fictional character “Debra Morgan” does not work in the real nor reality life of Brandi Glanville. IMO

    OT: K9 officer petition. The story is a tear jerker.
    I hope NMD is okay with this being posted.

    So, I’m not one to post petitions usually to be signed. This week we lost a brave K9 officer named Rocco to severe injuries he received from a sex offender on the run being searched out for a home invasion. He was stabbed several times causing injuries to his spine, muscles, and he lost a kidney. He fought thru 2 surgeries, blood transfusions, and sadly passed last night due to pneumonia and internal bleeding. He saved the 3 other officers the felon injured including stabbing his handler. Rocco died a hero. I know the area is torn up over such a needless violent crime against our officer.

    The heart breaking part is the man who ambushed and murdered Rocco will only be eligible for a 3rd degree felony in Pa which means 3.5-7 years in jail. It doesn’t seem right that you can savagely murder a police officer albeit one with four legs and get a potential slap on the wrist. I saw slap on the wrist because if he were to have “taunted” Rocco instead of stabbing him-the punishment is the same.

    There is now a petition to get the White House to address K9 police officers and enforce stricter punishments for killing them. If a petition to get Justin Bieber deported can get 100,000 signatures hopefully Rocco’s Law can so officers everywhere in our country are protected.
    Thanks for reading.

    LOVING the stories on radar right now. Bruce J looks alarming….. I don’t understand what he is doing to himself.

    I think Christie Brinkley looks GORGEOUS and I want her doctor’s name but I always believed she was a nasty woman deep down. Streets talked.

    Tre’s publicist …

    Oh it’s all yummy ! Good Friday yay🍪🍫🍧🍦🍮🍩🍬🍭

      Don’t forget 🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻 (even though I’m in my pjs and not having any 🍻🍻🍻…just popcorn and soda with Mags!!)

      • chismosa™ says:

        OMG it’s been ages Jill since we toasted !
        Happy weekend 🍻🍻 and have fun with your girl!

    • T-Rex says:

      I have heard that the Bruce Jenner thing is a publicity stunt to drum up ratings for their pathetic reality show since it’s so LOW in the ratings.

      • Mene Seela says:

        I don’t think it’s a stunt at all. If he really is transforming … that is weird to me. Kind of like rejecting himself in the Michael Jackson style. I find it sad.

  83. Pghemtchick says:

    Jill, I don’t know if we can be friends anymore. 😦
    You’ve lead me down a dark road and it feels like my phone needs a good douche. Lol
    #readtheintro #scaredforlife
    I’m sad to hear her hello kitty grew up thanks to a big penis. Mainly, I’m sad the voice I hear in my head read it outloud and I can’t bleach it gone.

    Lol
    Seriously tho. I still ❤ ya and am kidding about not being friends anymore. Pass the eye bleach if you have it.

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

      Since we both #readtheintro and we are both #scarredforlife we shall be best friends forever and ever!!
      The hello kitty getting a work out in the first few pages was kind of rough right? Same with getting “banged” on the top of a car…

      • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

        How many invites does she hand out?

      • Pghemtchick says:

        So did she come out as bisexual on 27? I think that was the page. When she talks about her friend and her sharing an apartment in WeHo and yes they were like that?

  85. I Need A Life! says:

    There’s a story coming up on ABC with Diane Sawyer regarding your children and guns in the house. 13 years ago, my 3 year old son wanted a friend over. The boys mother asked me a few questions, and then asked, “Do you have guns in your house?” I was stunned. Not that it was an insult. It was such a brilliant question. Diane Sawyer is featuring families who ask those questions. If you have young kids, grandkids….watch.

    • Nancy says:

      🙂 A very brilliant question IMHO. I’ll be watching it.

    • Mene Seela says:

      Guns scare me but my husband’s huge family have always had them (for sport). They don’t hunt anymore just target shoot. They were always safety conscious (locking them up).
      My husband finally agreed to get all firearms out of our house because we both feared an accident involving kids.
      I agree, it’s a great question to ask. Kids, especially boys, will root them out of hiding and attempt to try them out.
