Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast Blogs Blogged by RamonaCoaster

Finally some of these women (who isn’t Kenya) wrote some blogs.

NeNe Leakes – thinks everyone should take responsibility for their own actions.

I created this game called “Pillow Talk.” It all started from Gregg and I basically discussing our day or any issues we had with each other at the end of our day once we got in bed at night. Obviously this party is for adults only with adult topics and content that build unity, start conversation and debates between couples, friends, and even strangers!

Too bad only immature kids showed up to the party.

All the guests that were invited knew in advance what the dress code was and what my intentions were — to build unity within the group.

I had to laugh out loud reading this sentence.  Epic fail.  I seriously doubt Nene had good intentions considering what she knew everyone said before the pillow talk party.  Her game was designed to get the drama going.

Yes, questions were being asked that some were uncomfortable with! I DID NOT write the questions, but I asked them, so blame me for that! I’ll accept that! I’ll even accept you saying I stirred the pot, but I can’t take the blame for uncontrollable adults picking up their fists to fight.

So who wrote the questions?  Does it even matter?  These extra people added to the drama which led to the violence on the show.  If I wanted to see violence I would watch an action movie or see a boxing match, not tune into reality tv.  I hope these violent acts do not become part of the Bravo formula.

I already stated that Kenya charged out of her seat, and whether you could see it or not she did, and I stand by that! I also said Christopher NEVER touched her in an aggressive way. He was only trying to stop her from charging his wife, and I stand by that! I’m the first to tell you that a man should never touch a woman aggressively, and he didn’t! The rest of the ladies on the cast have spoken, so I rest my case.

I don’t think Kenya charged anyone.  It is hard to have a conversation with someone who is across the room especially with cameras there.  Christopher should never have touched her.  As a man, you are screwed either way – you are the ass that touched a woman or you are the ass who got it handed to him by a woman.  Kenya seems to think Nene is blaming her for the whole thing but really it was everyone who contributed to that fight.

Cynthia Bailey – I Didn’t Know Mal Pushed Kandi

Although I was surprised and thought it was interesting that Natalie knew Todd, the tea that was poured was basically old and stale. I envisioned Kandi handling this bit of news exactly the way that she handled it at the winery. She was not bothered, laughed it off, and pretty much owned her fabulousness with a “girl, bye” attitude at the end of the day. High fives were slapped and that was that. Or so I thought. I really thought we had moved on, so I was a kind of surprised when Kandi brought it back up at Pillow Talk.

Obviously this should tell you that Kandi was still sensitive about how her man is being talked about and I don’t see how as a friend you did not notice that.  Especially when you knew Kandi’s mother is against Todd.

That was when I decided to try to talk to Kandi to make sure that she had the whole story. The good and the bad. Big mistake! As you could see, that didn’t go too well. In hindsight, I guess I was too much in her personal space. It didn’t feel like it to me at the time, but looking back at it all, I guess I was. We both talk with our hands, and I didn’t realize at the time that I was using mine any more than she was using hers.

Porsha was right. There must have been some demon in the room possessing people because Cynthia’s tone of voice and her body language just changed.  I thought she was going to get all up in Kandi’s grill.

I also did not feel that when Peter walked up and asked what was going on that he was necessarily aggressive. I do know that anytime a man is addressing a woman (and it’s not all fun and giggles), it never really looks right.

I thought Peter was going to go off on Todd when he was saying “Ya’ll acting real strange.”  I was like, wtf? Todd and Chris were about to resolve everything.

Last but not least, I definitely didn’t know until I saw it on tape that Mal pushed Kandi. I actually didn’t believe it until I saw the tape, because I just don’t remember it happening. I thought Mal was trying to keep Peter and Todd from getting into it by pushing them apart. Mal did tell me that in that moment Todd pushed her, and she instinctually pushed him back. Then all hell broke loose from there. Remember, Mal is my sister first and foremost. She is just as protective of me as the other ladies’ families are protective of them. Just like the other incident, it all happened so quickly it was hard to know who pushed whom and when or why. We may never know exactly how it all started, I am just glad that it is over.

What the hell was going through Mal’s mind that she could stop two men from physically fighting?  Mal was infected with a demon, too.

Kandi apologized to the group at the spa for her behavior, and I apologized to her for getting in her personal space and for Mal pushing her. With these ladies it’s always a matter of time before you bump heads with someone. So I guess it was me and Kandi’s turn. It kind of sucks, because Kandi and I have always been cool with each other and have never really had an issue. Just like she said that she likes me, I also like her. So that said, I apologize and accept full responsibility for any part of wrong doing that I contributed to on that night. I apologize on behalf of Peter and my sister as well. I hope that Kandi and I are big enough women to eventually move past this foolishness. I guess you will have to keep watching to find out. Oh yes, when Kandi says that I wouldn’t bust a grape, she was 100% correct. I do not and will not ever physically fight another woman.

Good thing everyone knows that about you.

Kenya Moore – thinks all the ladies want to make her the fall guy.

 I watched Kandi explode into a blackout rage stating she would “kill” people and “drag them.” We all have triggers and are not perfect. My issue is not with Kandi’s fit of anger, but with the acceptance of her behavior from the women over the same point that I attempted to make: NO ONE SHOULD EVER PUT HIS OR HER HANDS ON YOU.

I don’t think the women accepted her behavior but they accepted her apology.  I think the women have enough history with Kandi to know she is a kind-hearted person who was just having a bad moment.

During the aftermath of the melee, I watched each woman cavalierly recall the events as each laughed about what happened to Brandon and at their behavior, none acknowledging Apollo’s assault on Brandon. Not one single woman called Brandon to check on him.

Apollo’s assault on Brandon should have been addressed because that was crazy but knowing there is a lawyer involved you know that it won’t be.  I think the lawyer probably told her husband not to apologize because he would be admitting his wrong-doing.

Secondly, men have physically abused some of us, including NeNe, in our past. Instead of NeNe pointing the blame at me for standing, they all should have been outraged that a man would grab me for any reason in their presence. Yet, they chose to focus on rudimentary finger pointing and attempting to make me the fall guy.

Nene would not want you to have any positive attention. She is the queen of that show afterall.

What’s even more disturbing is all the gay bashing and offensive language used by NeNe to humiliate and demean Brandon. NeNe maliciously and repeatedly referred to him as “that queen” and “her girlfriend in the red dress” etc.

Poor Brandon.  Nene should definitely apologize for that.

Christopher stood up and then hovered over me first while NeNe sat back pleased with herself over the contemptuous, hate-filled environment she created. After Christopher violently grabbed me, Brandon admirably defended me. Yet, at the spa, NeNe relentlessly argues Christopher “never touched” me when we all clearly saw he did.  If that wasn’t enough, she exclaims, “You’re lucky you didn’t get your ass beat”, etc. 

I don’t think Christopher “violently” grabbed your arm.  Everything happened too fast to judge appropriately.  But I do agree that he should have not grabbed you, period. That was wrong.

No one should be subjected to physical violence especially from a woman who has been beaten herself.  What type of message are you sending to other women, young girls, and gays that it’s OK you get beat because you deserved it? Phaedra stated “Brandon wrote a check that his ass couldn’t cash” yet never once apologized on behalf of her husband. How ironic… One word: karma. Phaedra and NeNe both condoned violence with these remarks and for that, I’m deeply hurt and embarrassed for their disgusting beliefs.

I think everyone should admit to some wrong doing.  Kandi gave the right example apologizing for her behavior. I don’t think anyone condones violence.  I think there was too much negativity in that room from the very start for it to turn out any other way.


Meanwhile, someone posted a producers email on Lipstick Alley from a blog called  Kenya Moore confirmed that it was 100% true.  NMD

“Hello The Fame Driven,
I work as a member of the production staff on BRAVO’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and I wanted to clarify for people what was not aired during the brawl in last nights episode since Nene Leakes has slandered us, the True Entertainment production staff, and editors of the show. For one, Nene’s erratic behavior was simply because she felt Kenya’s tardiness to her event was a devised plan for the producers to make Kenya the new star of the show, and it was NOT! Before Kenya arrived Nene was ranting, pacing, and cursing us out about how she is the star of the show, she is the relevant actress, she made “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” the success it is today, and she should not have to wait for Kenya to arrive to her event. Two PA’s were verbally disrespected and threatened by Nene when they simply tried to diffuse the situation by telling Nene that the scene could not wrap until all housewives (Kenya included) were present, we didn’t air any of that footage.

When Kenya arrived to the event Nene was already pissed, but we the producers told Nene beforehand that Kenya was going to be running late. Nene then reverted her frustrations towards Kenya and that’s when she thought to bring up the Christopher Williams and his “common law” wife rumor, that Kenya stated at the winery, so that the room would gang up on Kenya, and it didn’t work out as Nene had originally planned. Prior to that night, Nene and Kenya had no issues, it wasn’t until one of the housewife husbands blurted out at Nene’s pajama party that “we have to wait for the new star of the show to arrive”, which triggered Nene’s anger, and entailed what the viewers witnessed leading up to the melee. We didn’t edit, manipulate, or conjure up a devious plan to sabotage Nene like she would want people to beleive. We can not provide or present footage that a housewife does not put out of themselves to be recorded. So for Nene to blame poor editing on the production and editing staff is the furthest from the truth, and showing no accountability on her end. For obvious reasons, BRAVO network decided not to allow Nene’s blog to go up on their site when part 1 of the brawl occurred, because the network knew what Nene was saying was not the truth.”


Deflection Brandi Style, RHoBH by NMD

If it wasn’t so tiresome, it would be amusing.

First of all Brandi Glanville made a comment on her PodCast (so she couldn’t claim she was mis-quoted) about Lisa Vanderpump almost filing for bankruptcy and living in the valley many years ago.  Her context was that some of her castmates hid their past – while she was an open book.

Lisa took exception to Brandi’s statement – saying it was categorically untrue.

Brandi deflected – blaming it all on Kyle Richards in an interview with eonline – saying that Kyle told her some gossip – and it wasn’t Brandi’s fault that she couldn’t keep it to herself.

Kyle denied it immediately.

And then denied it even more emphatically on facebook:

“In response to Brandi’s comment re Lisa & Ken ….Brandi must have misunderstood an innocuous conversation we had in which we discussed the fact that Ken himself had made a speech at a party in their home where he said that he and Lisa had owned businesses and properties in Calabasas and discussed the course of their journey . This was not “classified” information. The other claim made did not come up in this conversation and is not something I have heard . For all the issues that Lisa and I continue to work through , I have tremendous respect for the hard work and success they have achieved in their life together.”

Meanwhile Brandi did a little more deflection, telling people to back off Kyle – as if she wasn’t reponsible.  Deep sigh.


Happy (one day late) Birthday Exit4

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. T G I F!!!! OMG I’m glad it’s Friday. So much more S N O W last night. I went out & shoveled snow to clear the bottom of my driveway that the snow plow driver plowed so that I could get out this morning if I was going in to work. That damn snow plow driver came thru again and plowed the snow right back in front of my driveway. Idiot!! At least I’m home and have today and the weekend if necessary to move. I hope you all are ok and can enjoy your TGIF.

    • chismosa™ says:

      The plows do that to us too. I cursed him out last time

      • Powell says:

        If I ever see him I’m cursing him out too. It just doesn’t make any sense to plow the residents in.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      All snow plow drivers must go to the same snow plow drivers school. Happens to me all the time. One time I tried to gun my car through the drift and got high-centered. Won’t do that again. To everyone who is once again struggling with winter stuff, well, I really don’t know what to say anymore. I feel for you all!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Our plow drivers will sometimes flip the blade so it deposits the bulk of that icy snow just beyond the drive. It sure makes it easier to shovel out. But this last storm, the one with much more snow than usual, the one the plows had been working on all night and struggled to keep up with, this last storm, they didn’t flip the blade. I had a mountain range of ice sitting at the end of my perfectly clear drive.

      • vilzvet says:

        You have to time it right that you are standing there in their path and they come down the street! J/K. It definitely happens here alot too. We got a foot of snow, but somehow the schools will still get their one week break next week. I know Lavalady said NJ was getting some of the break taken away from them like last year with Storm Sandy.

        • Powell says:

          I think it was Monday on our local news they showed the school systems and how many days school has been missed so far do to weather, and how many days they will have to make up. I thought all school systems built in missed school days but not all do. My county does not build in days. So I was counting yesterday w/these two additional days the kids have to make up 7 days. I remember when we had Snowmagedon 5 yrs ago the kids had to make up a week.

          • HuskerHuny says:

            Back when my girls were in school they missed several days due to snow. So instead of making up the days or taking away pre-arranged days off, they made the school day nine minutes longer for about 2 or 3 months and all was made up.

    • LaineyLainey BTHOC, TRex says:

      grrr to the plow driver!! and TGIF

  2. TexasTart says:

    Thanks for the blog Veena and Ramonacoaster! 😀

  3. Veena (NMD) says:

    Happy (late) B-day Exit4

  4. BB says:

    Happy belated birthday Exit 4.

  5. chismosa™ says:

    Sorry I was behind on the whole Kyle / Lisa bankruptcy story via BBBB blabber mouth —
    I’m confused as to when and why it came out as it did:

    Did the order go:

    -B’s podcast she says she heard from Kyle about “bankruptcy” >>>>> 
    -then no tweets about this? No one was angry on twitter?>>>>>>>
    -then AFTER filming reunion there are tweets ?
    – >>>>Next, BBBBBs interview to E 
    –finally Kyle’s subsequent tweets denying she did that. 
    -Then Lisa retweeting, believing Kyle. Or at least appearing to show solidarity with Kyle to the fans. 

    VV – I’m sensing what you sense ….🔮🔮🔮🌀🌀🌀vibes
    Machinations – possibly. If Kyle is that smart. I only know her 1 season. 

  6. Powell says:

    Yup so NeNe was hyped up on adrenaline because of production having NeNe wait for Kenya and the Kenya is the new Star remark. So she was gunning for Kenya. It was her goal to humiliate Kenya that night and it backfired. Y’all know I don’t like Kenya but the pop off was all NeNe ‘s fault and then Christopher, then Kenya gave it all momentum. From how NeNe describes the way Pillow Talk works w/she and Greg in no way resembled the way she presented it at the party. NeNe needs to face it that it just wasn’t a good idea at all.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Somehow, I keep thinking some of them were hyped up on something else. Nene, Peter, Cynthia, Mal, and who else were behaving in slightly more aggressive ways. Did they have a little pre-party?

      • Powell says:

        Well we don’t know how long they had to wait for Kenya so I suppose they could have been drinking a lot.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I’m wondering that too. They probably did get together ahead of time at one of their house’s and had a drink or two. I’m sure they did discuss ahead of time on what was going to go on and I’m sure some were looking for drama, including Chuck and his wife. I’m wondering who made the comment about the new star, my money is on Peter or Apollo. Apollo because of his problems with her and Peter just because I can see him doing something like that. I don’t see Greg doing it nor Todd either.

    • mm in oc says:

      I so tired of production playing games with having the ladies arrive late. enough already. I’d be freaking PO’d if I planned a party, trip, etc and someone showed up 3 hour late. I’d be pissed at production for making us wait. Meanwhile they are all drinking and getting buzzed. That’s what fueled the behavior in my opinion, Kandi and Cynthia were very emo because of the alcohol. Nene was just pissed because she doesn’t like waiting for anyone (and she’s said that at least five times this season alone). Reading into this “queen bee” notion seems like more producer driven drama to me.

      • Powell says:

        mm in oc you make a great point about how many times this season NeNe has said she doesn’t like tardiness. So I bet that’s another production game by having Kenya be late. Alex McCord said production probably had her come late so when all is said and done production manipulated NeNe and got it popping off.

    • LaineyLainey BTHOC, TRex says:

      if it WAS her idea. It might have been production who put her up to it. The point is it wasn’t a good idea regardless of whose idea it was, I guess.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      It definitely looked like NeNe partook of rocker style party favors but the rest could have just been drunk and looking for a fight as the adrenaline was still so high. Bad behavior can be contagious especially w/ the cameras around and everyone jockeying for position.

      As for the melee… everyone was to blame as they all showed their asses. Fight 1… NeNe angrily tossed the hot potato to Chris. He starts ripping on Kenya as his wife co-signs. Kenya gets up, to get better traction, camera angles or intimidation factor and marches over to the wife. She actually passed Chris so he had to double back and grab her arm. She w/ Brandon in tow, goes off and Brandon pushes/hits Chris. Peter steps in to separate and pushes Brandon back so Brandon shoves Peter. Apollo jumps in to defend/help Peter and knocks Brandon down. Brandon somehow hits Apollo and the fight is on!

      I didn’t see Chris hovering over Kenya as he was in the middle of the room. She marched passed Chris so quickly he had to catch her from reaching his wife who was still seated. Had he been quicker he could have jumped in front of his wife but Kenya was fast. He grabbed her arm and while not cool, it would’ve been very uncool if this woman had walked past him and hurt his wife. Brandon could have defended Kenya without pushing on Chris. A simple ‘Don’t touch her let them talk it out’ would have sufficed. Instead he went for Emmy Gold when defending her honor, pushing and shoving while screaming and the ‘Don’t hold me back’ routine. Anyway below I give you Funky Dineva and her reviews.


      PART 1

      PART 2

  7. Shiny says:

    Poor Lil Ol Brandi. She’s upset that she was manipulated by Lisa? But she still hasn’t noticed that she’s being manipulated by Kyle, or that she was being tethered to Yolanda for safety of Yolanda.

    And Brandi would never notice that Yolanda is jealous of Lisa because Yo’s ex-husband thinks highly of her and because Lisa spent time with Yo’s children when they were with Mohammed. Brandi, you didn’t get those green heels in Paris from Yo because she wanted to give a present to you, and only you, in front of the others. Yo may be generous, but she’s just as manipulative.

    Yo in garden with ex-husband and fiance gave a lot away with all the acid that dripped between her lines. She gets along with him for the sake of the children, but hell still has no fury like a woman scorned and cheated upon.

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

    I’m going crazy being home bound b/c of this friggen snow and I’m doing stupid going to Amazon to check out reviews of Brandi’s book. She has around 50 reviews-at least 39 are 5 star reviews-there are a few that gave 1 star-but the crazy part is the comments to the people who didn’t like the book!! The Brandi Bunch are out in full force calling every bad reviewer “Leann” and giving them so much crap for not liking the book…does this always happen in the review section? I never noticed…it’s kind of insane!!

    • vilzvet says:

      Oh thanks for reminding me! I meant to do that same thing today. That is surprising to me, I would figure more negatives. Remember how with Melissa’s reviews they were overwhelmingly poor and the comments were hysterical. And ah, Jill’s, THAT Jill, were the funniest ever. Is Susan Saunder’s review still there I wonder!

      • Anne says:

        JNNTJ — You should leave an review and also one on Goodreads, especially since you weren’t able to finish the book. There is lots of controversy on book blogs about the usefulness of reviews and whether they are reliable in terms of making a purchasing decision. However, the sites use the average of ratings to advertise the books. Negative reviews will bring the average down to a more realistic level.

        • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          Anne-I’m scared of those people over at Amazon-they are really attacking anyone who doesn’t praise the dumb book…they are mean and scary!!!

          • mrs peabody says:

            Just remember this, they can’t find you so go ahead and leave a review. I read them last night and was surprised at all the positive ones and the hateful comments to the 1 star reviews. I read the first book and it was not something I would recommend to anyone to spend the money on. It was ok for a light quick read but that was it. Even if I didn’t think she was a horrible person I would not ever buy another one of her books. I only bought the first one to support her, not again. I think she must be reviewing her own book myself. She does not write at a 5 star level period!

          • Anne says:

            Oh, Jill. I know, aren’t they awful — but you don’t need to respond back to them or even acknowledge the nasty comments. Mrs. Peabody is right. The commenters can’t find you. If it was not for the fact that I refuse to put money in Brandi’s pocket, I would buy it and try to read it, just so I could leave a comment.

    • Powell says:

      Are they all legit reviews? I remember after the S Saunders happened someone here said the reviews now have to be legit.

      • SJNYC says:

        How can they tell if it is legit? So for kicks and giggles to see if it could be done I wrote one last night and it posted. I may have fibbed about buying the book but I did buy the first one and wanted to jump off a building after reading that sample chapter. Also as a lurker I read Jill’s attempt at reading and only making it through half way. The fan club hasn’t come after me yet, but considering the lack of star rating it will be interesting to see. NOTE: I am not advocating people post bogus reviews, but I was going out of my mind reading the fanboys and damn maybe I do have something in common with Brandi because I just couldn’t help myself…

        • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          Keep us posted on the comments you get from the Brandi Bunch-you are brave!! I’m a chicken!!

          • vilzvet says:

            I looked at a few comments…these people look at what else the reviewer has purchased and because one had positively reviewed Leann’s last album (which bombed by the way) they accused the person of just doing the review out of spite.

            • SJNYC says:

              I have a few amazon reviews but nothing controversial so maybe that makes me less a target for the fanboys. I also said I didn’t get the book at amazon so they can harass me for being non-verified purchaser. So far no backlash.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Vilz— I know Leann’s album had bombed and I had heard critically it was very lauded and rated highly. Supposedly a beautiful album ….

              But yeah she’s lost fans!

          • SJNYC says:

            Ok I checked amazon and of the 5 star reviews of Brandi’s book only about half are verified purchasers. Also of the 5 star reviews I would say for half their only reviews are for Brandi’s book although I did see 2 had reviews for Taylor’s book and 2 for Melissa’s and I did see 3- 1 star reviews for Leann’s cd. So basically I think reviews can be totally manipulated and biased so if anybody wants to join me in the 1 star arena …

        • Powell says:

          Ok. I don’t remember how it was said that they had to be legit.

      • Anne says: will note whether a reviewer is a verified purchaser (bought the book on The rest — who knows.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Ashy— are the good reviews VERIFIED BUYERS???

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

    Thanks so much for blogging RHOA’s blogs, Ramonacoaster…Good job! It was really interesting to read their diverse perspectives on the whole thing. While it’s true that Candy went batcrapcrazy… It just must be so tiring to continue to be put in the unenviable position to have to defend your fiance over and over again. The previous discussion about Todd “dating up” seemed to me was absolutely meant as a big fat slam against him – and then when they tried to minimize it in this episode – it was just laughable. I wasn’t liking how Cynthia handled things this episode either – and her blog, while contained apologies (kind of) left me feeling tepid towards her.

    I’m closing my eyes and trying to remember the last time a friend and their hands were in my face like that… I really can’t remember a specific time – and I have a lot of friends who talk with their hands… there’s just never ever this kind of aggression behind their gestures…. Animated, sure; emphatic, of course; passionate, invariably – but not the finger wagging crap. I’d probably do something stupid like grab their hands to stop them… lol… I remember one time a coworker tried to do the finger wagging thing with me – and I dramatically fixated my gaze on the finger and bobbed my head emphatically mimicking the same motions of the finger – they quickly stopped and we both had a great laugh about it… I tend to laugh my way out of these situations… but then again I’ve never had to defend Mr. Stars99 to anyone.

    NMD – I really appreciate you bringing in that explanation piece from the production company – That was really, really interesting! Really great catch! It makes sense to me that Nene flipped a fig when someone implied Kenya was the star of the show…lololol… How dare they? I must confess when I watched last week’s episode that I really didn’t think Nene was “on” anything – I just thought Nene must have had a big heaping cup of her own Kool-Aid and that she was auditioning for her next TV role… LOL

    • Powell says:

      Stars you know what if you go back to Cynthia & Peter’s anniversary when Christopher and his wife met them at the club, his wife was telling how she knew Todd, both Peter and Cynthia took the info as negative against Todd. Peter especially commented something like “Oh he’s an opportunist” & Cynthia perked right up taking it all in as Todd is an opportunist. Didn’t she even say something in her TH confirming that Momma Joyce should be worried?

    • mrs peabody says:

      Don’t most people like to “date up”? I don’t see why they would even make a big deal out of him dating up. I’d rather date someone with more money than me any day. Not to say that if I met someone who made less that I wouldn’t have dated him but I prefer more. I’m not single any more and did marry a man who has always made a lot more money than I ever have.

      • Powell says:

        I was watching some of Steve Harvey and the issue was the wife wanted her husband to stop flirting w/women. Steve told the guy he “married up”. He was going to lose his wife if he didn’t make changes. I thought that was funny and good.

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

    Ok this is weird…an interview with Lisa and Brandi AFTER the reunion-they seem to be very cozy and friendly…why would Lisa lose her sh*t over the bankruptcy comment if her and Brandi are so friendly with each other??? I’m so confused…please watch the interview and tel me what the hell is going on!!

              Hahaha. 🙂

            • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

              I’ve only been out twice since Christmas so I understand the going crazy part. I call it Cabin Fever and it has me talking only to my cat and the guy who has been shoveling me out. I want to scream.

              • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

                I feel ya JWIJ…this snow sucks…makes everybody loopy!!!

              • Orson says:

                That’s what bed pillows are for. Hold one against your face and scream into it. Then repeat as necessary.

              • Powell says:

                Twice? You poor thing. I like being at home but I’d go a little crazy to. #NoMoreWinter

                • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

                  I’m a home body too but these walls are looking a little too familiar now. Today would have been a perfect day to get out; it’s sunny! but they did a lousy plow last night then came back this morning and plowed me in again. Waiting for my shoveler …

              • I Need A Life! says:

                Oh…JWinJ…It’s going to be warmer next week in Chicago. I know this sounds incredibly lame, but after fighting the freeze, the snow, the ice, the plows, I’m going to miss it. I loved hearing those words, “Stay home.” However, I did all my spring cleaning. So help me, I will not spend ONE beautiful day this spring in the house cleaning.

                • Powell says:

                  A lady that works on my floor and I were having that conversation on Tuesday about being at home. She just wanted us to get hit hard w/snow so that we would be working at home. I told her it’s a double edged sword cuz you want to be home but you don’t want the snow. 🙂

    • Brandi is trying to save her place in BHHW. She should have backpedaled at the Reunion… She was saying all this Season to wait for the Puerto Rico trip and everything will be clear… Now she said to wait for the Reunion, after watching how bad she came across and people asking Bravo to NOT bring her back… She is a single mother, with two kids to raise all by herself, lost her dog, Joyce flipping hair was annoying , blah, blah ,blah, It was Lisa’s fault, it is Kyle’s fault! If Brandi is back, I am out!

      ******Happy Valentine’s Day to all*******

  11. Powell says:

    Connie Chung and Maury Povich are on The View. I haven’t seen her in yrs. She looks great.

  12. Powell says:

    Carole Radz of NY is on The View. Talking about her new book. She said the new season there’s lots of crying, laughs this season. She didn’t talk about anyone.

    • Anne says:

      Did you notice how Whoopi interacted with Carole? She seemed really engaged in the discussion, which was quite the contrast to her demeanor during Brandi’s segment earlier this week. I liked her first book and am looking forward to reading the new one, even though reviews on amazon and Goodreads have been mixed.

      • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        I’m going to get her new book-but I want to see when she is having her signings-I might be able to go to one if it’s around my area.

      • BB says:

        That’s because Carole can carry on an adult conversation. Brandi is not an adult and therefore cannot. I really liked Carole’s first book because it was nonfiction. Not sure I would like her new one. You guys will have to let me know.

      • Powell says:

        #1 Whoopi can’t stand the HWs shows. #2 Carole had an intelligent conversation w/the ladies. She’s a journalist that can speak on many subjects. #3 Brandi’s type of words & actions is the reason why Whoopi doesn’t like the HWs and Brandi ‘s vocabulary consists mainly of STFU.

      • Powell says:

        And Anne when the NJ ladies are on Whoopi has the same look on her face as she did w/Brandi. As a matter of fact Whoopi looks like she’s not even there. 😉

  13. Mene Seela says:

    When is Hoyceline taking everyone to PR?

    Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

  14. BB says:

    Bethenny’s talk show has been cancelled. Current season ends in May I think. I guess having Richie Wakile on there ever other day just couldn’t save it. I wouldn’t suggest anyone trying to do a talk show nowadays. There are enough of them already and even most of those aren’t doing that great.

    • Mene Seela says:

      I liked Bethenny way back but her show was unwatchable. Nearly as painful as watching her be mean to her in laws. So long B!

      • HuskerHuny says:

        I never watched her show. No, I take that back. Had to watch a bit of it while waiting in a doctor’s office. Now what? Back to RHNY? Andy loves her bunches. How desperate will she be to stay in the public eye? Time will tell.

      • I Need A Life! says:

        Mene, I feel exactly the same. I give her credit. I can’t imagine keeping a conversation going on some of the odd topics she featured. What was that? She does have a good sense of humor, and she was good with members of the audience. There were too many topics. No focus. I saw her pad thai recipe and wanted to look it up. That’s where she could have succeeded…as a cooking show for those of us who don’t cook.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Hi INEEDA!!! I was just searching on my dvr’d shows hoping I hadn’t deleted that segment with the pad Thai recipe! I deleted it!!! I was just saying PHOOEY! WhenI saw your comment. Didnt that look good and healthy??? My hubby would like that sans the tofu. I’m gonna search for the recipe, if I find it, I will post it. I do remember she used all things that I have except for the rice noodles. I want to try it with the rice noodles (gluten free). Soy sauce, fish oil, garlic, honey, lime juice, cilantro, chopped chicken, pepper flakes, black pepper? , shredded carrots, chopped cashews…I think that’s it, but I’m gonna search in case I forgot something,

          • I Need A Life! says:

            Lainey, go to her show site. It’s there. I’m trying it out. My favorite dish and I never knew there were so many fat grams. I think she has something, but this wasn’t the fomat for her. Having a young child, she might have had more success as a “mom show.”

        • PJ says:

          I like Bethenny and I think she has a lot of potential as a talk show host and a strong fan base. I just think the format of this show was not right for Bethenny, and Bethenny herself would not have been responsible for the format. I think if they had just allowed Bethenny to be Bethenny things would have gone much better. I didn’t care for the pannel discussions with people I could care less about yelling opinions I don’t care about. But Bethenny working with the audience or interviewing a good guest, she was in her element and shined. Regis was not always successful in TV until they just let him be himself, anyone remember when he walked off the Joey Bishop show?

    • California35 says:

      Really? 😦

    • Powell says:

      I thought it was renewed? Wow! It’s having HWs on constantly that did her in. Andy has them on WWHL all the time. Why did she feel she needed to also?

      Oh Gosh BB. You know what that means? Oh shoot! Jill Zarin is gonna give someone an interview saying how B did it all wrong in the first place. Oh shoot!!!!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Powellypooh,I like that she has the hw peeps on her show. But for someone who never watches any reality,..well, I can see that perhaps this would not be the show for them, right?

    Really? 😦

    Happy birthday Exit ~~~

  17. ItzAngeeDuh says:

    I see Kenya as the catalyst to the violence. If she had stayed in her seat, Christopher couldn’t have touched her, Brandon wouldn’t have jumped up, etc. this is classic Kenya, throwing rocks & then hiding her hands. It’s ironic that we’ve never seen this level of violence on this show until Kenya arrived. Production orchestrated everything, the theme, the questions, Kenya being late. I DONT believe Nene is worried about Kenya stealing her spot on the show. NOT!! I’m calling BS on this. Oh, and Brandi! We can stick a fork in her cuz she’s done!! Happy Valentine’s day everyone!! Happy birthday (one day late) to Ext4!

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I think if a HW husband did make a comment like..”Oh, we have to wait for the star of the show” that they were being sarcastic. At the time they were filming, most viewers didn’t like Kenya at all and almost all of them thought she was a nut bag. It’s only been as this season has aired that she has gained a little following because some of the comments in her talking heads have been pretty funny.

      I still think she is hiring a team of writers to coach her in the TH, because I have never seen her say anything remotely funny off of the fly. I also still think she is a head case.

    • mrs peabody says:

      Actually Chuck got out of his seat first and went over to address her. I think if someone was talking to me from a standing point I also would have stood up. When she stood up she then went over to where the wife was to address her and that is when all he** broke loose. I didn’t think she charged over to her myself and to me it looked like he grabbed here arm roughly and her friend then jumped in to protect her and then everything broke loose. I will tell you though I did not like Cynthia’s attitude and my opinion of her went down considerably. If she had apologized to Kandi and showed the least bit of being sorry for her actions my opinion would not have changed but she didn’t. The only one I feel the same about respect wise is Kandi, she owned her behavior, felt bad about it and apologized for it and it felt like a real apology.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        mrs peabody – I saw it the same way – and if someone was standing talking to me, and I was sitting, especially all the way down on the floor, I would get up too – he did grab her arm – not sure what NeNe thought she saw – then again, she probably saw what she WANTED to see – and I heard that comment about waiting for the star of the show, but I cannot say for sure who said it – I hate having to agree with Porsha – some kind of hateful spirit came over all of them – at least Kandi was mature enough to apologize – and mean it –

        • iceNfire says:

          ummm – maybe I’m nitpicking here but by comparing the way George grabbed Ramona to the way Chris grabbed Kenya I see a big difference. George actually indented Ramona’s arm but I don’t see Chris doing the same to Kenya. I see him touching her … but I don’t like Kenya so maybe I’m letting my eyes lie to me

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Haha! I heart u icey! Sing with me “honestyyyyyy”. That’s all I can remember!

          • Chuck grabbed Kenya’s arm and indented his fingers… I am with Mrs. Pea and Shamrock. No one should have been standing up to anyone. Chuck was in position to intimidate Kenya (I do like Kandi and Porsha… the rest are just full of themselves) (I still think Cinthya is the most beautiful of all HW’s).

            • iceNfire says:

              Hi cusi – Again I saw it differently LoL I saw Chris standing next to the mantel with an index card like he had some notes and was standing to make a speech LoL Am I really reaching here?

              • iceNfire says:

                When is someone going to invent something that will allow me to copy and paste from my tv to here???

                • I think this was filmed with several cameras at a time (I am serious!) One from the different angle got the entire Kenya’s arm grabbed by Chuck (when she was commenting with Chris what happened that night). She was in her kitchen with Chris and they showed this part, that was not aired during the previous week. During the previous week they showed from different angle. Then hell went loose!

    • Orson says:

      Well, Nene’s always had a tendency to physically threaten people and occasionally she let it out. I remember her backing Dwight (?) into a corner at some party waving her talons in his face. And there was that tour bus where she got into it with Kim. And that off camera choking incident with Kim too.

  19. keeponrockingme says:

    Did Brandi say that Ken and Lisa filed bankruptcy recently or were about to? I don’t listen to Brandi’s podcast, so I’m not sure. If this is whole thing is just because she said they lived in the Valley years ago and went through some financial troubles back then… then this seems like much ado about nothing.
    If she’s saying they don’t portray their current financial situation honestly right now, then it’s a much bigger deal and could hurt them in business. But if this crap is all over sh!t that happened 20 years ago, what is the big deal? This season is just so boring.

    • PJ says:

      I agree. It is my understanding that she was referring to things in the past not now, as obviously things seem more than fine now.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I thought she said they had lived deep in the valley (and I have no clue what that means, is it bad to live deep in the valley, how big is this valley anyway and where is it?) and had filed bankruptcy, like it was a fact they did it. I really don’t care if they did or not as lot’s of people do but if someone said that about me and my husband I also would be very upset about it. One because it’s not true and two what gives you the right to tell lies about me like that. Just because someone (Kyle) said that to you does not mean it is true and before you (brandi) go saying something like that you had better be sure of your facts. I do not think Kyle said that to Brandi I think it’s another I’m being sued moment for her or my sister was molested by our high school principal. My feeling is Brandi had better watch her mouth because if I had been either of those parties I’d be talking to an attorney to shut her up, especially if I were that principal. Those kind of lies can do a lot of damage to his reputation. That’s not something you joke about.

        • Powell says:

          mrs peabody I think to some people in LA living in the Valley is supposed be like if you don’t live in Hollywood, Brentwood those types of areas, that you don’t live in a good or money area. Like remember on MY how the ladies looked down at Alex cuz she lives in Brooklyn, not the Upper East Side, in Manhattan? So it’s supposed to be a dis but if you don’t have a pot nor window I wouldn’t look down my nose on where anyone lives.

          • California35 says:

            I agree. It is like the Valley is “down here”. But Calabasas does not count as the Valley, does it? Also not a poor area at all. I guess this was discussed before.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Yeah is Calabassas the “valley”??

              • mrs peabody says:

                That’s were the Kardashin’s live I think, at least they always show that right before they show their house. I can’t imagine them living in a cheap area.

        • California35 says:

          Yes the whole point is that she is talking about it…when it is none of her business, when she “heard” it from someone else, true or not true, does she still loves Lisa or not, did Kyle say it or not, did Ken said it or not. Brandi is talking about it as a fact, also the tone. It definitely sounded like she wanted to insult Lisa either way. I hope she is gone from BH next season. If she is doing all of this on this season and on twitter, imagine what she will do next time? She goes from cussing to crying, from being all tough and then to poor me. Sorry, she needs to pick on.

        • PJ says:

          Look I don’t approve of things Brandi says any more than you do. But the thing about slander is that you have to prove there is damage in order to take a person to court and sue them or shut them up. By that token things said on blogs like this one would also fall under the same rule of law (blogs are not really protected speech) and if a person being written about could prove damages then they could sue.

          • mrs peabody says:

            I was thinking of more of a restraining order to shut her up.

            • PJ says:

              I don’t know how that works, Brandi is doing basically what we are doing commenting on a person who is on reality TV. I think you would have to prove damages and file a lawsuit to get a restraining order.

    • T-Rex says:

      IT NEVER HAPPENED, THEY NEVER FILED, NEVER THOUGHT OF FILING IT WAS JUST A LIE MADEUP BY THE=LIAR-SUPREME-MORONSTFUBrandi. Lisa and Ken came to the United States with over 10 million dollars in their pockets, they had sold their businesses in England in a move to the States for Lisa’s acting Career. Oh, and it doesn’t matter if it was 20 or 30 years ago, when it comes to a business person’s financials you don’t make that kind of defamatory accusation, even after all those years if CAN affect you financially to have that kind of rumor out there, but it wasn’t all that long ago anyway.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I agree.

        They came for Lisa ? That’s cool – I didn’t know the initial reasons for coming.

        Hope you’re feeling well TR

      • PJ says:

        Maybe it CAN affect you but you have to prove that it DID to sue for damages–there have to be quantifiable damages. Anyone who is seriously worried about their reputation should stay off of a reality TV show, you kind of leave yourself open to stuff like this. My guess is people who matter would take this with a grain of salt and it would do no damage to Lisa or Ken. I think Brandi did believe what she said was true so someone must have told her something, of course whoever did is never going to admit it. That being said It would probably be good for Brandi to stop running her mouth about other people. However, I don’t think there is any proof at all that Brandi just made it up and is outright lying.

    Hi everyone —- I had posted that Carole R was going to be on the view today but it was late in the blog from last night so not sure if any fans tuned in

    Thank you for the writeups up there everyone ^^^^^

    —VV! — if you come on later– can you see my post above about the timeline of the Brandi craziness and correct me if I’m wrong?
    Much much appreciated !!

    — I just want to say I watched the part in ny last season where chiclets George 😬grabbed Ramona’s arm at her function she had where he was there to defend his poor poor crybaby LEGGG – and it was a similar grab that Christopher had on Kenya.
    Just saying it caught my eye! 👀👀

    • iceNfire says:

      WoW – I saw the Total opposite LoL

      • chismosa™ says:

        Wait I mean Chiclets didn’t PULL Ramona back the way Chris pulled at Kenya. I mean Chiclet’s was a pinch / grab – the way some parents pinch at kids (HATED when my mother did that)
        Whereas Chris was sort of pulling Kenya back.

        I don’t know — maybe just seeing the ARM grab on ny made me think of the Kenya incident !?? Who knows …….

    • VV™ says:

      Chianina, I’m going by memory and can be totally wrong. I think Brandi Podcast with bankruptcy comments aired when Lisa was in NY doing press for Vpump Rules. Reunion was February 7th that same week.

      • chismosa™ says:

        So podcast aired BEFORE they filmed ? Or maybe same time – she was on WWH on a Monday ….. And the $hit-cast airs Monday nights ?
        So then by reunion time – she addressed it.

  22. chismosa™ says:

    Wow I thought I heard for sure 99.8% it was coming back…
    So you all were right ^^^^

    And I read Beam’s SG line is not doing well. Sales down this past season/quarter whatever.
    Plus she just announced a joint venture with soda stream (controversy !)
    Which goes against her new drinks that are fruity with sucralose (yuck) – ??? So odd.

    I can’t believe no cable channel wanted the show. Hmm

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      She is also teaming with TGIFridays…my BFF is doing the PR work for it….did anyone watch the show today? Was she at TGIFraidays??

    • Powell says:

      If she’s just gonna have HW s on I can see why no one else wanted it. Maybe her deal w/Soda Stream will be a low cal drink. I haven’t bought any since she launched the margarita. $14.99 is expensive for her products. I don’t want to spend that and not like it like I didn’t like the margarita.

      • chismosa™ says:

        She has a low cal sparkling water ! I just saw it at the store. Bottled by Arizona Beverages.
        Nice flavors and nice bottle – but has sucralose

    Since Kyle knows that Brandi dislikes Joyce, I don’t understand why Kyle invited Brandi on Joyce’s trip to PR to meet Joyce’s family. It looks like a disaster in the making.

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      On that same note-since Brandi dislikes Joyce-why the hell would she want to go on a trip with her….SCREEN TIME?? I guess they are all obligated to go but it’s all so fake and phony at this point.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Because it’s the PLANNED HWs trip. “Overseas”
      That’s why I keep questioning who the ‘host’ is of the trip. If Kyle is arranging the room and board via Morris’ connections or not. So Joyce/Jackie gets her 2nd hosting gig on her virgin season.

      I was so excited to see super exotic 18 hr flights to the Indian Ocean or to Asia or — just exotic!

    • Powell says:

      Chismosa we have to see when it comes back on cuz she had some work done and her face was swallow the entire season. But she’s started a new biz. Selling diamonds. She says she has professionals around her now, she didn’t before. And she let people talk her into biz that was not right for her brand. So that would be Tamra w/Wines of Wives & Brooks w/Vicki’s Vodka. From some of you here the wines sold by Wines of Wives was expensive and from what we’ve read Brooks used his shares of Vicki’s Vodka that Vicki gave Brooks, Brooks tried to use it to scam Vicki ‘s partner. So is Vicki saying Brooks and Tamra got her into businesses they knew nothing about? 🙂

    I haven’t 100% read yet busy day and I have 3 cuties having a Valentine’s party at my house atm while my bro woo’s his wifey. Happy Valentine’s day all!

    I didn’t see this posted yet, apologies if it was. The Dance mom lawsuits continue! Saw this on KDKA (our local news) at 5. Kelly is suing Abby and the production company.
    “”Dance Moms” producers are also reportedly included in the suit, with Hyland suing the unnamed individuals, along with Miller, for a minimum of $5 million in punitive damages. The reality star is citing assault, defamation and breach of contract, claiming that she has not been paid regularly following the altercation in November.”

    • PJ says:

      Wow this looks to me like someone really wants a payday and is making a preemptive strike because if pending charges. I saw this episode and the way I saw it Abby did not block Kelly from leaving nor did she seriously try to bite her or as Kelly claimed at the time try to eat her face. Kelly demanded that Abbey not put her finger in her face and then Kelly immediately started poking her finger in Abby’s face. Kelly slapped Abby and pulled her hair all the while Abby never touched Kelly. Even after Abby was out of the room Kelly was still hanging around and in no hurry to leave until Holly told her to go. I know Abby has her issues but in my opinion Kelly is just as bad. How terrible of Kelly to do this as Abby mourns the loss of her mother. I hope Abby counter sues. Also Kelly constantly makes fun of Abby’s size, people come in all shapes ans sizes and this is really low of Kelly. Kelly mentions this I her lawsuit, how disgusting of Kelly.

      • Like I had said on an earlier blog, don’t watch the show, saw this episode, looked down at the computer and looked up and it was over, and I don’t think I could watch it again, lol. I think you have a valid point PJ about a preemptive strike…..these women are over the top. I would never allow my daughter to be treated like that, even my daughter wouldn’t allow it at a young age. She took a dance class when she was 5 and the teacher was a yeller and she told me “Mommy that teacher is too mean.” Good thing the first class was free!!

        • PJ says:

          My daughter took ballet too, her teacher was a sweetheart. Hmm I wonder if that’s the reason my daughter never danced competitively, I should have looked for a crazy person to teach her–I think I ruined her chance at stardom.

          I guess it takes all kinds but in my opinion for whatever that’s worth Kelly is as crazy as she claims Abby is.

          • Those moms are crazy, I think Mia’s mom is the most reasonable, easily the most educated, I watched the first one or 2 seasons… but it just got too much. And IPPHO all of Maddy’s dance routines looked the same. I took ballet and tap, I loooved tap dancing. Also baton twirling, that was fun, I can still twirl, I guess I’m “gone with the wind fabulous” ha! Our park had great classes when I was a kid.

        PJ!!! Come sit next to me!!!! I can’t stand Kelly!!! Supposedly she wants her kids to have a normal teenage life…uh uh…Brooke has a heavily auto tuned record out. Kelly is very much pushing her singing “career” and speaks of it often as if if it were a real thing. Brooke did have a local tv appearance and her mom was right there with her in the limo, “encouraging her” aka making her nervous, speaking for her. She is a really trashy person and very abusive toward Abby Lee and disrespectful of the other moms and kids the horrible way she lashes out at Abby in front of the kids. She has had way moreon screen temper tantrums than anyone on that show. More than Abby and for sure more than the kids, The verbal abuse is not one sided on this show. Kelly keeps up pretty well with Abby Lee.

        • PJ says:

          Lainey you are so cute! Maybe Abby wouldn’t be as bad if she didn’t have to put up with Kelly. The constant bashing and the things she says in front of the kids it’s so disgusting, she sets a terrible example. It’s like she doesn’t really want the kids to succeed or something because she undercuts Abby and gets the kids so stressed out its a wonder they can perform. I wonder if this lawsuit has an element of if I can’t be on the show no one can type of revenge or if it’s to force their hands to get her back on the show. I just hope some logical heads prevail and Kelly doesn’t get a cent from this lawsuit. I really feel the show will be much better without her.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        ^5. Yep. This is ugly.
        I enjoyed the dynamic of Kelly and Christie for awhile. As a plus sizer I’d never consider going to a meet and greet with them tho. They are very offensive with the weight comments. To play the Kenya card (or Nene card), Abby shouldn’t have gotten up. That’s the angle I forsee Kelly playing. I don’t like Abby swearing at the kids even tho they have heard worse. I really dislike Kelly felt the need to get physical infront if the children.
        Holly has moved to the top of my pyramid. She is cool and collected. This isn’t the first time she’s ushered those kids out of the room. It’s nuts.
        Talk about kicking someone when they are down.

        • PJ says:

          I like Holly she is educated and knows how to conduct herself like a lady. Abby should probably have stayed seated. But I re-watched and Abby didn’t say what Kelly insisted she said about replacing the girls in the group number. The girls weren’t excited to be there you can see it, but Kelly fills them with such hateful nonsense how would they feel excited to be there. There was no need for violence Kelly was aggressive and she wasn’t trapped she could have walked away at any time, there was no self defense needed Abby didn’t touch her. It really bothers me all the stuff they say about Abby’s weight, as I said people come in all sizes. What is really the fundamental difference between making fun of a persons weight or their ethnicity or some other thing? It’s all wrong, only if it’s about weight it’s apparently ok to show prejudice and make fun of a person and to do that in front of children.

    I could see this as possibly being true.
    She’s had it with Kenya

    • Orson says:

      On the one hand, I can see Nene having a tantrum and saying that. But I can’t really see her turning away from the $$. I really doubt she’s getting many offers.

  35. So I went to the Library today and I walked back to my car and got in and turned on the air conditioner (Cuz it was hot and my car is black) and started the cd player and looked to my left and there was a man sitting in his car across from me, staring at me. And I stared at him and inside I did a little squeak and thought “I need an adult” and then he waved and I kinda half smiled and did a little wave and got the hell out of there, lol!! and yes I checked to make sure he wasn’t following me, lol. I love the Library but there are some really strange people, including me, that go there.

  36. It’s like I have ESPN or something!!!!

    Hello everyone. I have some very sad news to share with you all. Our dear Nancy passed away earlier today. I spoke with George and needless to say he is in a state of shock. I will be in touch with him in the coming days and will pass along any messages that you all may have for him. You can email me directly at if you would prefer to send private messages to George and her family. She will truly be missed.

    • Orson says:

      Oh no!

    • Exit4 says:

      Oh my God!!! What happened???

    • chismosa™ says:

      Oh my god is this serious ? For real?
      I can’t believe it ….. Oh my god. Nancy !…..

    • VV™ says:

      Not our Nancy?! What?

    • PJ says:

      Oh my goodness!

      oh no

        George found her unconscious. He called 911 and began CPR. The paramedics arrived while I was on the phone with him. I told him that I would call him later to check up on her. I called back a few minutes later to ask him if I could make any calls for him. At that point the paramedics had determined that they could not revive her. Needless to say he was in complete shock. I’m going to call him in a little while to check up on him.

        • Catseye says:

          I’m shocked. I just got a cold chill, reading that. 😦

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Hi MookiesMom, I can barely see through my tears as I write this and mourn the death of someone I had grown to love and trust. The last time we emailed was Wednesday, she mentioned you to me. She said you were so nice and that she just knew you and I could be friends, too. I have been wanting to meet her in real life ever since my daughter moved to L.A. A year ago, she said her health just wouldn’t allow it; I don’t think I had a full understanding of her condition. Once after one of my trips out west, I told her that I would have driven any distance to meet her and she sent me a picture of her hands and clued me in on her daily struggles with her health and without saying the word “suffer” I had a clearer understanding of her daily suffering. Recently, She promised me she was going to go to the doctor soon and get on top of her heart ailments and said that she promised she was going to try to get better so that she could enjoy life more and so we could hang out together the next time I went to Cali.

          I remember when she went to see the little girl Jackie Evancho, she mentioned how hard it was to walk and how grateful she was that her hubby, sis and brother in law were so patient and careful with her. She was so grateful to have gone to this concert to hear this little angel sing. Little Jackie will always bring memories of our Nancy.

          I miss her already. I’m so sorry for George and what he must be going through right now.
          Please let me know if you can, of any final arrangements, if theres a service, where, the date, etc. so that I can send my condolences.

          I just don’t want this to be true, but if it is…then what a fitting day, a day of expressing love…Nancy, I love you! We all love you!

      My heart goes out to him. Prayers being said.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I’m so sad to hear this. Poor Doctor George 😦 and kitties. Thank you for letting us know. I can’t fathom right now never having a conversation about the whales, her animals, or just snarking on housewives. She’s an amazing lady. Sending my sympathy to George and her siblings and all her other fam blog and real life. I know she’s up in heaven embraced by Lynn and petting her beloved Emily. #RipNancy

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

      I’m so saddened by our loss… and it is OUR loss… Peace be with you, Nancy… You will be so missed… I was looking forward to talking with you about the outcome of today’s Olympic figure skating – men’s freestyle… My heart, thoughts and prayers go to George and all of your loved ones.

    I feel guilty even posting something cheerful after hearing this terrible news. I didn’t get a chance earlier, we had a break in the weather and it was a balmy 43. Big went to school, my mom came to visit and I got out of the house! We just had a nice family dinner out.

    Anyway-I changed my mind and decided to go ahead and thank you guys for your birthday wishes. I changed my mind because once again we are shown that life is short. Tomorrow is never certain and being blessed with another year is a gift. So thank you for taking the time to send me wishes!

    Blessings and I will say a Hail Mary and an Our Father for Nancy. I jokingly called her once the Forrest Gump of the blog-she’s done it all and seen it all! Lol. She never forgot to ask about my cat-or someone’s dog-or someone’s health. Hug your love ones extra tight tonight!

  41. Veena (NMD) says:

    Rest in Peace Nancy – Let’s move our condolences to a separate blog so that they don’t get lost here.

  42. zoekayla says:

    So sorry to hear that the Lynn Fam lost someone today. I didn’t know Nancy well, but my sympathies go out to her loved ones.
