Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast Blogs – We Finally Hear from NeNe and Couples Therapy

Real Housewives of Atlanta Blogs Blogged – We Finally Hear from NeNe –  by RamonaCoaster

(RamonaCoaster got the short end of the blogging stick when she agreed to take on Atlanta.  These ladies do not blog regularly.  But she’ll resume the blogging she started with as our NY Blogs Blogger once that series hits the air. Empress will be our NY blogger.   NMD)

Wow!  These ladies made me work this week.  Five out of the six ladies wrote blogs this week.  Kandi is still MIA in the blog department.

NeNe: “I Apologize for My Behavior”

WOW! What a show! I don’t have a lot I want to say, but I’ll start by saying I apologize for my behavior at the charity event. I definitely don’t want to teach young women that this is the proper way to respond when someone is trying to trick you into a situation and push your buttons. I would much rather teach young women to be aware of the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Way to follow in Kandi’s footsteps and apologize for any bad behavior except you are still blaming your behavior on someone else.  It is too bad the lesson you didn’t teach young women is how to turn things around.  Make lemons into lemonade. You could have shown off your improvisation skills that come in handy as an actress, to at least give a longer, better speech than you did.  I understand why you would react the way you did when you have witnessed Kenya has stirring up trouble with other castmates but then the entitled way you acted gave her the upper hand.  Kenya can then say Nene has no class and can’t set her differences aside for charity. But then again it may not matter because the money may or may not have gone to charity anyway.

I’m a very rational person. I have been a major supporter to Saving Our Daughters and have raised thousands of dollars for them. Fact! All this charity B.S. is coming from a person that showed up at my charity event last year in a thong and butt pads! She even argued outside of Porsha’s charity event! She has no credibility when it comes to charity. I just hope Saving Our Daughters received the thousands of dollars she claimed to have raised.    

Other than starring in a reality show where women compete in who can compromise their castmates’s integrity better, you seem very sane.   The charity not receiving the thousands of dollars Kenya claimed to have raised would be a travesty indeed but Kenya claims to have proof she sent it so who the hell knows.  At least people who watch this show are aware of the charity and maybe the contributions will increase.  I hope the charity itself is legitimate.

I’m not surprised things have gone down the way they have between Kenya and me. She had beef with Cynthiaover the whole coochie crack thing, then moved on to Porsha, then to Phaedraover a booty video, then to Apollo, and now me! I see straight through her! She’s not original. What’s she’s doing has already been done. I have always stood alone in a war! I might bend, but I won’t break, and if I stumble, I won’t fall! I see what she’s doing and so do you.

That girl Kenya wants to make sure she holds the peach every season and production just wants ratings.  I’m sure she’ll do many crazy things including starting a war with you and enlisting a friend of yours. The adage that comes to mind when I watched the last episode was “it’s not what happens to you but how you handle it.”  I think Nene was suspicious of Kenya’s actions and didn’t react very well to it (bad speech).  Very few of these housewives react well to situations they find themselves in.

P.S. Here’s something else I saw: (1) Did you see the opportunist that keeps coming around? (2) Did you see my friend just sit there and indirectly support this B.S.? I have worked with a lot of women over the years, and the one thing that it has taught me is that life is like an elevator — on your way up, you have to let people off!

I’m guessing you are talking about Kenya’s new best friend.  Those two are scheming to take your Georgia peach crown.  Just to add to the current paranoia – what are you going to do about it girl?

Kenya: NeNe Doesn’t Know How to be a Friend

All the women were able to move past the pillow talk night and no one tried to place the blame solely on me except for NeNeand Phaedra.

Surprise, surprise.

NeNe and I are both survivors of domestic violence. I, particularly, have a penchant for any charity that supports women and helps young girls thrive. Saving Our Daughters (SOD) is one I too firmly believe in and thought would help a lot of girls in need with their struggles in life. Previously, I promised NeNe that I would throw an event to benefit her favorite charity. That I did with no ulterior motive.

No ulterior motive?  I am not sure that I buy that.  You never called Nene and considering what has happened in the past with all your other castmates, you can’t blame the girl for thinking something shady is going to go down. 

I may not do everything perfectly right, but my heart was in the right place. Although I do not owe NeNe anything, out of respect for our friendship at the time, I only wanted to do something kind for her and to benefit a great charity — a win-win situation.  This was my sweeping gesture…my olive branch. However, you don’t take an olive branch and beat someone with it.

 Well, that’s overdramatic.

Each and every girl received the same invitation outlining my event details, dress code, program, etc. The electronic invitation my team used tracked all the invitations. Therefore, we could see that NeNe not only RECEIVED the evite but READ the invitation as well. However, she chose not to respond. Instead of calling me with questions, she contacted the charity and confirmed their support for the event weeks prior. She also heard from Cynthiaand Marlo about the event, other Housewives, and PR staff. Does this sound like a woman who didn’t know anything about the event as she claims? If you believe that lie, I have a bridge I want to sell you.

Yes, we saw that on your computer on the show but wouldn’t a personal phone call from you be too much to ask?  I can understand Nene’s confusion and suspicion.

Initially, I wanted to surprise her with my decision to make her the guest of honor, which is why I didn’t personally call her. However, as rumblings went on about her not getting a call from me, I immediately called her and received no response resulting in me texting her. To my dismay, she furiously responded in a nasty, disrespectful manner. Again, all knowledge of the event took place prior to the event. Once NeNe did learn, she made her own choice how to conduct herself.

Oh! Your decision to make Nene the guest of honor was a surprise.  That’s a good one! Nice way to turn it around.  I don’t think Nene minded when you played your games with Phaedra but when she thinks your playing games with her, watch out!  One day you just might find yourself being strangled by The Moose.

I commend Cynthia for the class act that she is and her many attempts to protect NeNe’s image by advising her to do the right thing and attend. Alternatively, NeNe could have declined coming altogether, sent someone to accept on her behalf, or come and graciously accept her honor and ask people to be generous and donate, then, speak to me privately later. Yet, she did none of the above. Proving money can’t buy you class.

Commending Cynthia will last until you find a way to discredit her too.

NeNe is no queen bee.  Actual queens are dignified, beloved, regal, and gracious, and don’t walk into a room with their noses in the air… none of the aforementioned is applicable to NeNe. When she arrived, she never spoke to me, but she had her nose in the air the entire time, and never once exhibited a shred of humility, decorum, or class. After she snatched the microphone from me all the guests gasped. What’s most disturbing than anything is her “I am bigger and better than anyone” attitude.

I have always thought the queen bee is the girl in the group that sets the rules of conduct and enforces a code for the group.  All the girls in the group look to this girl as a de facto leader. I am not sure who the queen bee is in this group of women but I don’t think it is Kenya.

I have only been a friend to her. But clearly NeNe is the one who doesn’t know how to be a friend and ices anyone who goes against her. She disrespects her friend’s husband by telling Peter to stay out of women’s business, but it was OK when she set me up so that Christopher could verbally attack me over my issue with his woman.  The truth is NeNe resents me for her own egotistical reasons and the world sees it. Her light has dimmed and she is clinging on to a title of being #queenbee. The truth is, there is enough light for us all to shine.

Bringing up Peter reminds me of the OC housewives when the men were on the reunion show and I felt there should be a househusbands’ show if they wanted their opinions heard.  Peter has been butting in too much of this housewives show and so has a lot of other auxiliary people.

“None of these bitches here are on my level I’m on” –NeNe Leakes

Well, NeNe is correct. We are all in fact above this petty, hate-filled, ego-tripping-one-woman-show-paranoid-hateful-drama of hers. We do not think we are better than other Housewives, because we all are on the same show the last time I checked.  Oh, speaking of being above someone…Kandiis a Grammy award-winning songwriter and astute businesswoman and actual “rich bitch,” Cynthia is an accomplished model and businesswoman, and Phaedra is an attorney, and I am  a former Miss USA and the only one in the group with an actual crown.  Unlike NeNe, I can’t be dethroned as I’m a part of history. With that said, NeNe is a former stripper with a few short-lived gigs in Hollywood given to her by one man. My scoreboard says that makes HER not on our level. I’m not sure about you, but I’m looking forward to the future of RHOA, not the past. BLOOP!

But Nene is a much better person when she thinks she is on a higher level than anyone.  A lot of women act better when they have self confidence.  They don’t need someone tearing them down.  They already do that to themselves in their heads. But I’m sure Kenya knows that already.

Porsha’s Dropping a New Single!

Hello loves, I’ve missed you guys! I’ve just been so busy running my Fortune 500 company. LOL, JK! I have a lot of awesome surprises to share with you all soon!

After a 2 month blogging hiatus Porsha is back to writing.  She must be feeling relevant. 

Let’s jump into the most recent episode. First off I would like to thank all of you for tuning in each week. Up to now it may seem as if my RHOA sisterhood is slowly crashing and burning. After each week I have realized that these are real situations that people go through, and some of those times can be tough. After going through my recent split, the last thing that I want to happen is to lose my sisters. Sometimes we feel “tried” and pushed in corners. But at the end of it all, we end up making it right. As long as we try to treat others on how we would want to be treated, then the ups and downs will fade away.

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was finding out I got the part in Kandi’s play “A Mother’s Love.” The journey to the audition was long and hard. I’ll give you a little background. I started singing when I was younger in church, took some time off, then came back and sang as an adult on my church praise team. S/O High Praise! As time moved along I started singing demo tracks for various producers and studios. I ended up getting married and ended up losing my support system that wanted to help push me into the music industry towards my musical dreams. Well long story short, now I’m on my own and ready to follow my dream!

I guess losing your support system that wanted to help push you into the music industry is Kordell’s fault since he didn’t want you to pursue a career and family at the same time.  I always thought the life you wanted to have outside your marriage meant helping your grandfather’s foundation.  This is a new development.

I have always wanted to be a performer, but I have also always dealt with fear. One time I was in church and it was my turn to sing the lead. There were three lead parts, and I was supposed to take the third. By the time my part came up I got so nervous and scared that I just FAINTED! It was so embarrassing, everyone ran up to me and thought it was the Holy Ghost (they started speaking in tongues) when actually I had just crumbled under pressure. After that I decided I would believe in God and the gift he had given me. I told myself fear was not of God and I shouldn’t give into it. Thank the heavens I was finally healed and am now free of fear when I sing. Now I still get nervous, but I just try to put my heart and soul into my songs and hope that people hear more of my soul when I sing.

That’s a pretty extreme case of stage fright.  The human brains starts working when you are born but unfortunately stops working in front of an audience.  

At Kandi’s audition I tried not to think about it too much. I knew I had naysayers, but I also knew Kandi believed in me, which was very encouraging! I have to say I thank the haters that motivate me and push me to be my best.

Kim Zolciak: Let your haters be your motivators. 

I also wanted to let you know that currently I’ve finished a single that means a lot to me. The single is called “Flatline” with producer Chris “Traxx” Rogers. This song speaks from my heart and tells the story of any person who has ever had their heart broken or had loved someone and was let down. I can’t wait for you all to get a listen… When I get emotional I lean on music to help me get through hard times and I use music to express when I’m in a good place. I’ll be releasing the single “Flatline” in two weeks.

I hope the song doesn’t flatline like most other housewives songs.

Cynthia: Kenya and NeNe Were Both Wrong

As a wedding gift to NeNefor missing her gorgeous wedding, Kenyadecided to host a masquerade ball/charity event in NeNe’s honor. I thought this was a thoughtful gesture on Kenya’s part, since there was still some tension between them from the Pillow Talk Party and Spa Day. The charity Saving Our Daughters is one of the charities that NeNe supports, so when Kenya asked me to be a judge, I happily complied. I also agreed to let her use Bar One as the space to hold her Atlanta’s Most Eligible Bachelor casting. Anything for charity and my girl NeNe.

It is too bad Kenya didn’t tell Nene about this.  I wonder why the other ladies decided to be busy on the day except for you.

FYI: When Kenya initially started planning her event for NeNe, I remember her telling me that it was supposed to be a big surprise, and not to say anything to NeNe yet. I promised her that I wouldn’t. I talk to NeNe almost every day, and I’m pretty sure that I mentioned to her that Kenya was planning something for her and would probably be reaching out soon. Although I didn’t have any details at the time (Kenya was still in the early stages of planning), I remember being vague because I didn’t want to mess up her surprise. I am not big on surprises (even though Peter insists on surprising me all the time), so I just wanted to give NeNe the heads up to expect a call or something from Kenya. It was always Kenya’s place to extend a formal invitation to NeNe and give her all the details.

So this corroborates Nene’s story.  I guess production would have to make sure that Nene shows up at this event to film.  And they didn’t give her the heads up?  I wonder if Nene feels more upset that production teamed up with Kenya to put Nene on the spot.  Maybe Nene feels out of the loop and she doesn’t like not having control over the situation.  Not getting the heads up about the surprise honoree is only part of the problem.

Long story short, NeNe said she wasn’t invited and Kenya said she was. I agree with NeNe that Kenya should have picked up the phone and personally invited her, especially since it was in her honor. Even if Kenya did send the evite, I think the personal touch would have gone a long way under the circumstances. As a courtesy, NeNe also should have been told that she would be asked to say a few words on behalf of the charity. I believe that Kenya had good intentions when she put together this ball for NeNe, but she could have handled some of the details a lot better.

However, I also think that the way NeNe dealt with the situation once she got to the event could have been handled better as well. So in my opinion, they both were wrong in their own way. We all know two wrongs never make a right! My suggestion to NeNe was to just be the bigger person and graciously go to the event. Especially since it was for charity! A proper invitation (or not) was besides the point, because now her name was already attached to it. My interest as her friend first and foremost was to make sure that she came off as a class act. She could always get Kenya together later over cocktails about the technicalities. I stalked her all day long and begged her to take the high road and go to the event. I just kept thinking about how bad she was going look if she didn’t show up.

Cynthia is a good friend to Nene and trying to be fair to Kenya.

So, now we are in the driveway waiting for our cars, and NeNe overhears Peter telling me why he wanted to leave. NeNe walks over to confront him. I felt Peter’s tone was appropriate, and he was not being disrespectful to her in their conversation. I also thought that what Peter was trying to tell NeNe was coming from a place of love and support. Peter completely understood NeNe’s point of view, but felt like the charity was the focus. In my opinion, friends who care about each other should always be able to tell each other when they are right and when they are wrong.

Maybe you instead of Peter should have told Nene.  From the pillow talk party to the messed up charity event, he seems like another housewife.  He is allowed to have his opinions but he should voice them to you, not to another housewife.  He is involving himself for no reason.

At the end of the day, I really felt horrible because I was the one that convinced NeNe to come in the first place and didn’t want to be responsible for any more foolishness that night. My heart was in the right place, and what’s done is done. However, I have often wondered since that night if I had tried to talk NeNe and the words were coming out of my mouth and not Peter’s if she would have been more receptive. I say this because of the whole “a man shouldn’t step to a woman thing,” even if in this case the woman actually stepped to the man.

Even if Nene stepped up to him, he could have backed off and asked to talk about it another day. 

Last but not least, I thought it was very offensive for NeNe to say that none of the women at the event were on her level. Those words spoke volumes, and I kept wondering as her friend if I was included. I am hurt if this is how she feels, but if this is her truth, I have no choice but to accept it.

You could get mad and tell her what you really feel.  Isn’t that what you are supposed to do on this show?

Phaedra Calls for Peace

Unfortunately, I did not get to watch Sunday’s episode but have been told that it was full of drama and chaos, which is becoming the norm for us. And since I have not seen this week’s episode, I will refrain from commenting on it. There is nothing worse than talking about what you don’t know to be factually true.

That’s funny coming from a lawyer.

The rest of her blog is to promote her book tour and feeling the peace & love from all the sermons she heard in churches in the South.

I want to encourage you to seek balance in your lives and allow peace to dwell in the front seat of your soul; no matter what is going on around you. As Carlos Santana once said, “The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.”


Couple’s Therapy episode 8 it’s still on by LuLu

Jon and Kate 2.0
Kate 2.0 realizes that she is a b@#ch to Jon.  She promises to change.  Jon has a one on one with Dr Jen. Nothing is resolved Jon will never “man up.” I’ll leave you with this morsel Kate 1 hasn’t had sex with Jon in years!?!?!? Youch!

A disclaimer for a reality show should this ever be I don’t know discussed for the masses?  Taylor witnessed her mother being beaten then regrets staying in an abusive marrriage.  Ghost was abandoned by this mother when he was 6.  If Dr Jen was really interested in helping versus exploiting.  Instead of shaming him she should have focused on why he can’t have an “adult” relationship.  Sada’s father had a mean violent streak.  The abuse she suffered is terrible.  Jen fails to tie the abuse to present relationship.

Like mother minus porno like daughter
A clip of Farrah being hit by her mother aired.  Though I think its disgusting to hit a child regardless of age.  Farrah is 22 despite her porn star career at her old age.  She is very immature and her being on an adult couple’s therapy show is absurd.  I don’t doubt she needs therapy she needs to go away. This constant “look at me I will say whatever you want to hear” is annoying.

Dr jen has a one on one with Sada.  She is trying to convince her to bring her father on the show.  She is not coping with airing her abusive past. She feels Whitney is not being supportive.  Whitney is unsure how to help her.

    Good afternoon everyone. I haven’t been out but it looks like it’s a beautiful day. I hope everyone is well.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi Powellypooh! It is gorgeous here. I’m watching “Meatballs” with Bill Murray. It’s cute. Well, I’m not with Bill Murray, starring Bill Murray!

      • Powell says:

        I haven’t seen Meatballs in yrs. Bill Murray is funny. I hope your feelings of melancholy have washed away. Have a great day. 😀

  2. Veena (NMD) says:
  3. Thanks Veena, Ramonacoaster and Lulu for the blog today!
    Good day everyone! 😀

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      Good day!
      Thanks for the blogs..I have no words for the ATL cast-once the fighting started at the pillow party I stopped watching-now Marlo is back? She’s rough!!

  4. Powell says:

    Lulu this week’s epi of CT seems like it was nothing but about abuse. You’re right I think Dr. Jen is exploiting more than helping at this point. I remember the epi on Teen Mom when when Debra smacked Farrah and Debra had to go to court. That was a bad situation and IMO from the day Farrah was born there was trouble in that relationship and Michael, Debra’s husband has stood by and watched instead of helped contain whatever the problems were. All of these people need therapy of of CT IMO.

  5. Powell says:

    Thk you Ramonacoaster and Empress for blogging NY for us when their season begins.

  7. Mene Seela says:

    “Kate 1.0 hasn’t had sex with Jon in years” … before they broke up?

    If I were a guy I’d be terrified to put mine into Kate’s meat grinder .. yikes!

  8. SJNYC says:

    Lulu – thanks for the couples therapy recap. I for one haven’t watched it and it doesn’t seem to get a lot of interest so thanks for taking one for the “team”.

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      I haven’t watched either but I love to read about it-especially that PITA Farrah-I can’t watch her but I can read about her!!

  9. Powell says:

    All I know is I’ve never heard of someone being honored to not get personal details of why and how she’s being honored. Yes NeNe was wrong and should not have acted out at the charity. But again Kenya is the common denominator in a big blow up. I guess this was her plan for this season, to start problems.

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      I love how she said she was trying to surprise NeNe but really she was trying to set NeNe up-she did the same thing to Prosha last year when she wanted her to dress up as Halle Berry in B.A.P.S.

      • Powell says:

        Yup. That’s one of the reasons I said Kenya just wanted to start problems this season.

        • iceNfire says:

          No one will film with her. He guy in her closet, the guy with the boxes, her father, her fake aunt, Nene on the Phone, Marlo at the salon … etc.

          • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            I don’t trust her-I never liked her but to be fair I haven’t seen every episode this season…I’m sure I will catch the reruns before reunion time

          • Sasha says:

            Ice, I hate the scenes with her aunt because that seems to be when she does most of her fabricating. I won’t believe there is a prince or that she wants to really have a baby until I see it with my own eyes.

  10. ladebra says:

    Thank you NMD and Lulu and Ramonacoaster. I love reading the blogs, it takes a lot to commit and give your time. Thank all of you that contribute.

    BB, hope your mom is all better.

    Hey Jeff – you gonna do AR and Survivor? I am seeing commercials! Survivor is a new group, but they are pulling all stars on AR right?

    Hope everyone has an amazing Saturday. Live Out Loud!

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      I have been asked to recap Survivor so our world traveler can keep up. I likely will but it may not always be the day after. As for AR, after seeing the cast, I am thinking I’m going to pass on even watching this season (which means it will be the best season ever).

      • ladebra says:

        So glad you are blogging Survivor! When I saw the cast of AR, I was on the fence… And you’re probably right 🙂 but you can’t watch everything!

  11. LaineyLainey says:

    A few folks have emailed me for Nancy’s address to send a card to Dr. George. Just wanted to put my info on today’s blog in case I can help anyone else. Email me at laineylaineylainey at hotmail dot com. Thanks!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      So funny

      • iceNfire says:

        Actually, you can report someone that has over stayed their visa to the INS ( is it the INS?) but it’s a very mean thing to do – imo

        • T-Rex says:

          Icey, Just a note that CedricTheSquatterIllegalAlien, has been in the States over two years illegally, so no one had to turn him in, it probably took INS that long to find him and complete the documentation to deport him, if he has been deported. He did not keep a low profile either. The MOST the Vpump/Todds did was throw out the paperwork, if sent to them, to fill out as CedritTheSquatterIllegalAlien’s employers, which they haven’t been for years

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

    I’m watching the Shahs reunion-I think it’s so awkward that they are eating and reunion-ing!! This set up is weird. Back to the COUCHES!!! (The food looks fab though!)

  15. ladebra says:

    Totally OT, but I love this photo. Apparently there are albino peacocks, but rare

    • ladebra says:

      When I lived in Orlando, one of the peacocks at Bush Gradens in Tampa fell in love with one of the topiary bushes … Honest, the news station there filmed this poor peacock courting the topiary bush every afternoon. It was hysterical, talk about bird brain. But I have loved peacocks ever since. 🙂

      • Sasha says:

        Ladebra, I have not been to Busch Gardens in a few years. Peacocks, Flamingos, Gorillas and Elephants were my favorites. They are doing an event called Bands, Brews and BBQ. I think Bret Michaels is there tomorrow.

      • I had my Senior Prom at Bush Gardens when it was in The Valley, lol!! They use to have a tram ride that would take you up high around the brewery and you could see inside and then they had the beautiful beer garden.

    • LaineyLainey says:


      • ladebra says:

        ((LaineyPie)) I hope you are better today. It is hard, I know. Hey! Great to hear LaineyGirl booked a show! I’m trying to remember if I had that much energy in my younger days. I know I could party with the best of them, but I don’t remember being fearless in following my dreams. Good for LaineyGirl!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Hi LadyBra!!! I’m so glad you had such a nice time with your sister! Thanks for asking about me…yes, I am fine. (Except My neck pain is flaring up…oh the aches and pains!!! whoahhhhh is me!). And how are you? I read that you said your procedure went well. It’s time for me to schedule mine.

          Yes, LaineyGirl is brave. I think her path will be more fruitful with her interest in fitness/yoga as new doors seem to be opening. Wow, that last sentence sounded like a fortune cookie, haha!

          I’m watching Beverly Hills Ninja with Chepris Farley…so much physical comedy…makes me neck hurt just watching him flail himself all over the set. Ibuprofen is my friend today.

      • iceNfire says:

        Is the albino a male? Do only the males spread their feathers to court?

    • sparklemuffy says:

      I saw some wild turkeys this morning. They are HUGE. ( they feed in a cornfield) I bet the males weigh 40 lbs — anyhow, their spread is not as large as the peacocks, but beautiful– gives me a little chill 🙂

    • chismosa™ says:

      I just saw this —- beautiful!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Oh yeah…loved it. I recommend this! I love the final nod to Run DMC at the end. How fun would it have been to be in that studio audience? Thanks AZ Girl!

  16. boston02127 says:

    A woman was at her hairdresser’s getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband..

    She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded: ” Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It’s crowded and dirty. You’re crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?”

    “We’re taking Continental,” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”

    “Continental?” exclaimed the hairdresser. “That’s a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they’re always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?”

    “We’ll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome’s Tiber Rivercalled Teste.”

    “Don’t go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks it’s going to be something special and exclusive, but it’s really a dump.”

    “We’re going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope.”

    “That’s rich,” laughed the hairdresser. “You and a million other people trying to see him. He’ll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You’re going to need it.”

    A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome.

    “It was wonderful,” explained the woman, “not only were we on time in one of Continental’s brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot.. And the hotel was great! They’d just finished a $5 million remodeling job, and now it’s a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner’s suite at no extra charge!”

    “Well,” muttered the hairdresser, “that’s all well and good, but I know you didn’t get to see the Pope.”

    “Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I’d be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me..”

    “Oh, really! What’d he say?”

    He said: “Who f*cked up your hair?”

    Thanks for Blogging this season’s of THUGS=R=US=RHOA, even in their blogs they show that this season can be called their “GETTO UNFABULOUSMESS” and yes that isn’t a typo cause this season is a HOT MESS. I wouldn’t be surprised to find these THUGS armed with switchblades in the bras at some point!

  19. iceNfire says:

    Right now on Fox News in a 30 minutes show with Carol Alt. I like her b/c she demonstrates products of infommercials. Today she will be doing a piece on The Wet Brush that is suppose to make any and all hair free of tangles

    • iceNfire says:

      She likes The Wet Brush, she really didn’t want to but she does. I trust this lady. $14

    • chismosa™ says:

      Icey! 2 things:

      – I have this brush. Have had it about 2-3 yrs – think it was made in Germany and that’s why I got it?

      – love carol alt she grew up a town away from me.

      • nyc mama says:

        We lived next door to Alt and her former husband for a few years. She was certifiable then. As crazy as she is pretty. Maybe she got her act together now. I hope so.

        • iceNfire says:

          Hi nyc – She seems very opinionated on tv but she does give credit when credit is due

          • nyc mama says:

            Hi ice! I haven’t lived near her since the 90’s and she was on the top of her world at the time. She was a supermodel married to a NY Ranger. They were volatile together to say the least. I would think/hope she has changed and matured over the years but boy do I remember her craziness. It was wild and that is what popped up in my mind when I saw her name. 🙂

      • iceNfire says:

        chismosa – do you like the brush? I could use a new brush, I’ll order it

        • chismosa™ says:

          You would probably do really well with it. It DOES untangle well. And the pieces don’t break no matter how much I try to make them break with my hair!

  20. Thank you RamonaCoaster!!!! Great job, girl! Thank you Lulu for blogging CT! Say hello to Mr. Lulu! I hope you are getting close to be settled in your new home

    I am so excited and thankful for Empress blogging RHONY!!! I was not going to watch… but I can’t miss our new blogger!!!

    Thank you Lulu & RamonaCoaster.

    Lulu you should get the banner that Aviva wanted in st Barth’s — it’s now hanging up for YOU

    Re: Atlanta & nene & “setting up”
    Powell^^^ it’s still debatable if Kenya truly started the pillow “fight” IMHO. I don’t think it’s been all blamed on Beyonce#2
    One could argue Nene set her up there and now Kenya took her vengeance & set her up here !

    Wow – just watching something about Miley Cyrus. I saw her performance for new Years eve, and noticed she did very well when i expected something crazy. I thoughy maybe she would start toning it down. Well, she is not toning it down.

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

    Did any of you ever hear of a “candle reading”?? (As you probably guessed I’m watching a rerun of BH )

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      Also-what exactly is labeling? If you call someone a bitch is that a label? If you call someone ignorant is that a label? Or is only calling someone a drunk or witch a label? Please help!!!!

      • chismosa™ says:

        Please don’t LABEL ME ✋

        I thought you were asking about candling — like in the ear?!

        Maybe it’s something like what Carlton said – they analyze what is left after the candle melts 🙄 🙄

        However then again my older family used to read the greek coffee grinds left at the bottom of your cup after you drink greek coffee. So who knows. ….. Looking for ANSWERS???

        Wrapped in a riddle wrapped in a Twinkie

        • Do not command me! Haa! Love that!

          • iceNfire says:

            I saw ear candling on either Big Brother or Real World. It was suppose to clear sinuses but gave the girl a headache.
            I’ve never heard of candle reading but my first thought when I saw it on RHoBH was gimmick. Like the store offers different colored candles for different purposes. i.e. the blue candles may be for health so when you take it back for the reading the employee knows by the color that you want to hear about your health – idk Just Sayin’

            • chismosa™ says:

              Yeah totally Ice

              And honestly I know some people really think it helps but I’ve heard that ear candling is a gimmick also.
              Just what I heard……. On the streets 🚙🚙🚲

  24. LaineyLainey says:

    Hey guys, I just heard back from MookiesMom. She talked to George, who asked that no cards be sent yet. If u already did, I’m sorry about that. I’ve heard of a request for no flowers, but no cards? That’s a new one for me. So now you know what I know.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I just re-read my post. It sounds kinda rude and I apologize for that. He said no cards, yet. Yet. He is not ready for that right now. I understand that. Like I told MookiesMom, We felt close to her, but I am/ most of us…we are strangers to him. It’s a very unique situation. Her sweet hubby and family are in my prayers. Take care, friends! 💖

    • chismosa™ says:

      Thank you Lainey and don’t worry.
      I was thinking of sending a card. But you put it perfectly below ⬇️⬇️
      It is a awkward situation …..

      Thanks though

    I love trees and this is amazing

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Wow, I’ll have to send this to my folks. As a child, when we traveled, Dad would have us girls pose by any unusual or remarkable trees. It eventually was like a game who spied an unusual tree first would run to it. My sisters and I are still compelled to take such pictures if the opportunity arises and send them to him. 🙂

      • Ladebra says:

        I love this Jan! My Dad was a geologist (geophysicist really but I wasn’t sure I could spell it haha) and we collected rocks every where we went lol. When he died my brother got his box of rocks, all meticulously labeled and catalogued. I bet you guys can look at the tree photos and tell a story about each one 💕

    • James says:

      I think this is the angel oak near charleston going out to think james island. There is a push to save it from developers.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      In awe. I would love to see it in person. Peron to tree, that is.

    Princess! I have a wet saw you can borrow! We are laying porcelain tile. This is the second weekend of working on it, we are not as fast as you! Hubs had to cut 25 pcs and not all the same ( it’s such an odd shaped bathroom, insets in walls, fixtures) and pre-lay it, number them and pull it all back up. We couldn’t use that tool in your pic. Your floor is beautiful, by the way. Grout going in tomorrow! I know what your going through….lots of time on your knees, lol.

  28. I’ve been meaning to say that maybe Brandi has had a lisp bc she wears invisalign?? I wear retainers and I lisp like that when I wear my bottom one and I sound like a fool when I wear the top one. lol.

    To Rebecca, Vilzvet, Cusi and NMD, thank you all for also replying to my nervous breakdown post the other day. I am so sorry I didn’t respond, I just logged in now and saw the replies!

    Rebecca, do live here in California?? 4Ice doesn’t offer that in CA 😦
    and did you mean to use to computers at the same time so I can look up answers?? BC that was already in my mind!! Hahahhaah!! Aren’t the questions just ridiculous?? Its like they are using another language!! So I’m a principle and according to the course an “agency relationship” can be created in California by implication and by accident. WTF?? I’ve only been in the business for 3 years and have never heard seasoned agents/brokers use this terminology! lol

    • Cristina (djprincessc) says:

      wait no sorry! I am not the principal! The client is the principal and the customer and the client. Geez.

      • Use your phone and computer…if you don’t have access to 2 computers at the same time.

        • Cristina (djprincessc) says:

          I have access to another computer and my laptop and my iPhone. Baaaaahahahahhaha!!

          You know what?? I am not that scared of the actual exam bc I think I have 3 hours so I know I won’t feel rushed. Its just these mini exams that make me nervous. One course for one exam was 298 pages I had to read and then there were only 25 questions!!! Why so much shit to read!!??? And I like to reread my questions and make sure I am reading them correctly but with such a short amount of time its hard! lol.

          • You welcome Cristina! You are our sweet girl… everyone cares for you!

            • Cristina (djprincessc) says:

              That is beyond sweet Cusi. I care for YOU and everyone else here as well. I am so thankful for the day i started commenting here and got to know you all. xo!

          • All rightie then, time to kick a$$.

            You is can do this, stop looking at the negative, only focus on the positive, you stop saying you are bad at tests. You are only allowed to say, “I can do this, I am smart, and I am good at tests!!! That is ALL you are allowed to say. When you start hearing yourself say, “I can’t do this.” You say, “STOP IT WHINEY BUTT!!!. I CAN DO THIS AND I WILL DO THIS!!!”

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Rebecca, I’m sure can speak.for herself, but she’s in AZ.

      How are you? Did you get past the pain on your side or ribs?

      • Cristina (djprincessc) says:

        Ohhhhh thats why she was able to do bc they do offer that course in AZ. I wish we had it here!!

        I’m good Jan, the pain on my side is a lot better, sometimes its gone and sometimes it comes back, my doctor says its muscular. Idk I get concerned bc it does get swollen at times but she said that if it were a tumor the ultra sound would have shown that. Who knows, but when my expenses cool down (BC March I have sooooo much to pay for) I am planning on looking into getting it checked out again.

        How are you my dear?? 🙂

        • Jan (TexasTart) says:

          I’m glad there’s improvement, ut it has been a long haul for you, so it’s good to know you’ll follow up with maybe a second opinion when you can. Good luck with the RE license renewal. I’m good – well, it depends on who you ask 😉

          • Cristina (djprincessc) says:

            hahaha!! I like that Jan!! My grandma always says something like that, or I tell her stay out of trouble grandma and she’ll say oh thats no fun! Being good is no fun! lol.

            Jan do you live in Texas too?

        • R to the E to the B to the E to the C to the C to the A says:

          I’m in AZ and you open the course twice in your browsers. The answers are tight there. I renew every four years but have to take these stupid classes every two, so I don’t feel bad about it. I can only take three classes a day so that’s also annoying.

          Go to and take the demo course. It maybe just as easy as 4ice. If you don’t want to take these quizzes for the next time, your title agencies usually host classes for free. We do this in commercial all the time.

  31. I am bringing my comment from up tread where is The twitter of “The last supper” picture:

    Is Lisa or Yolanda holding a grenade? Right there on the side of the lemons (Between Lisa and Yolanda) someone is holding something… I wonder if is it a grenade and that is the reason the name of the picture is “The last supper”… Plainviewsue? Anyone?

  32. mrs peabody says:

    I think we are seeing the real Yolanda now, the one we saw last year was a sick Yolanda and not on her game but now that she is better (lyme disease) the true Yolanda is on the show and she’s a real B*tch. No wonder her and Brandi have bonded, they’re both b*tches who’s husbands cheated on them and Lisa is happily married to hers’ .

    • Cristina (djprincessc) says:

      I really think she is the reason that Brandi turned on Lisa. I can see Yolanda saying to her she mothers you, does’t that bother you?? You’re a grown woman. Pointing out all the little things about Lisa. I won’t be shocked she next season Brandi apologizes to Lisa saying it was all Yolandas doing and manipulating.

      • VV™ says:

        That what I thought too. Yofo is a real snake…and not a likeabke snake like Camille. I mean she’s a repugnant snake.

        • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          I can totally see Yolanda saying to Brandi “who is Lisa VanderPump in this world”…or whatever she about Adrienne. The question is-why did Brandi go with Yolanda? What made her quit Lisa? If it’s all because of Sheanna she could have just talked to Lisa about it but most of us know Brandi is not too bright and apparently easy swayed! Brandi herself seems unsure why she is going “up against Lisa” so I don’t think she knows why she’s doing it. Yolanda clearly does not like Lisa-it’s been clear to me since she started that she and Lisa weren’t besties so maybe Yolanda’s plan all along was to go for Lisa? She doesn’t have a legit gripe so idk what her problem is…maybe she just wants the royal crown to go Dutch?

          • Jan (TexasTart) says:

            Did someone say crown royal? 🍸
            You really are a night owl Jill. I’m exhausted, but my brain is running too hard…waiting for it to stop!

            Good post. Yep, why did B switch teams….and we didn’t even know their were teams to switch to.

          • VV™ says:

            I don’t know what goes through Yolanda’s maybe that almond/lemon combination is not good.
            I think Yofo has a big superiority complex or too much lemon made her sour.

            • Jan (TexasTart) says:

              Maybe not. I remember you always saying there was something about her that was not right and you couldn’t put your finger on it. Can you now?

          • mrs peabody says:

            Yolanda has such a hug ego that I have no doubt she feels she should be queen bee after all she is married to the King who walks on water. The fact that her ex respects Lisa so much really p*sses her off and all the more reason to dislike Lisa. I think Yolanda is used to being the center of attention and does not like Lisa being that.

        • VV™ says:

          Sra. Cusi,
          I didn’t like Kyle’s denial. It was weak, IMO. In particular, the part “Brandi must have misunderstood an innocuous conversation we had”, MISUNDERSTOOD!!!??? Really, Kyle? Brandi misunderstood? Had it been Lisa making those claims, Kyle would be crucifying her for it. I think Kyle did talk to Brandi about those things the Brandi Brandisized the story.
          #doublestandar #selectiveforgiveness #nobobbyfischer

          • LaineyLainey says:

            The word “innocuous” is what made me skeptical about Kyle’s explanation. I think she was mocking Lisa. As Lisa has used that word to explain something that she said or did. I think that’s where Kyle got that word. I could be so wrong. But Kyle would use a word of Lisa’s to be passive aggressive.

          • kit9 says:

            Compared to the actually awful things Lisa’s done to Kyle this season, I doubt Kyle would give a rat’s about her misunderstanding an innocuous comment. See tits and ants.

            • VV™ says:

              Lisa hasn’t done “horrible things” to Kyle. That is a myth perpetuated by Kyle’s Crying Heads and Bravo edits. Brandi on the other hand has. She even made Kyle cry.
              This is from Kyle’s statement about Brandi’s comments: “For all the issues that Lisa and I continue to work through ” If Kyle, didn’t care, she wouldn’t “continue to work through”.

              • R to the E to the B to the E to the C to the C to the A says:


                Kyle’s tweet response is complete crap. She DID profess to “love” Brandi on that radio show a few days Brandi blamed her for the gossip.

I walked into the pool fully dressed to get my son out WAY BEFORE they did it on Desperate Housewives, the looks on the kid’s faces….. #priceless #PindyDontPlay #sonluckytobealive #smartenoughtotakemyshoesofffirst

    Thanks youse guys for being more entertaining than my TV. Ooops, I forgot to write Lulu about CT….hope to catch her with those thought later! I have to get in bed.

  38. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Lulu – Couples Therapy “It’s Still On” Sorry to say, I agree, why is it still on. It totally jumped the shark with the Ghostface scenario and now the abuse. That is relevant to adult relations, but I don’t agree airing it like this. 😦

    Of course, I loathed Taylor on RHOBH and she came on this show with bang. And everything since then has pretty much been a whimper. It’s too hard to witness her facial contortions when she cries.

    Now, when Taylor comforted Kelsey last week, that was real, like one woman would comfort another when greatly distressed. I wonder why we didn’t get to see this caring and compassionate side to her before!

    Whitney can’t win for losing, Sada has her walking on eggshells and is NOT recognizing the effort being made to be sensitive to her needs. So frustrating, but they are the best matched couple.

    I groan each time Jon’s girlfriend is shown. She is so crass. A doesn’t she act like a guy. All of her body language and what comes out her mouth is just gross!!!
    Thanks for seeing it through Lulu and tell Mr. Lulu hello!
