Flipping Out “When The Water Breaks” and Southern Charm “Peter Pan ‘Sin’drome”

Flipping Out “When the Water Breaks” by BB

If business at Jeff Lewis Designs is any indication, then the economy must be getting better. Seems Jeff has all the work he can handle at the moment. Clients are asking for whole house redesigns rather than having a room done here and there. His client list includes CSI actor George Eads and his wife Monika, Mark-Paul Gosselaar (of Saved by the Bell fame) and his wife Catriona, and more work from his regular client Chaz Dean, owner of Chaz Dean Studio and Wen hair care products. Jeff and partner Gage are finally settled into the house at Gramercy. I love what Jeff has done to the house. (Note: I’ve heard Jeff has sold Gramercy. If anyone has reliable/solid info on this, please share.) The current design staff consists of Jeff, Gage, Jenni, Andrew, Katrina and Vanina. Jenni is seven months pregnant and will soon be going on maternity leave. (Note: I’ve heard Jenni may be pregnant with her second child. If anyone has reliable/solid info on this, please share). Add Zoila to the mix, sit back and enjoy the ride with Jeff and company.

Highlights of this episode:

Jenni tells Jeff she heard if you plan on breastfeeding, it’s a good idea to rough up your nipples with a washcloth ahead of time to toughen them up for the pain. Jeff loves this type of conversation because he’s naturally a curious person. He can’t wait to tell people, like his new clients George and Monika.

Jeff is still up to playing practical jokes on the staff. Gage seems to be joining in on the fun a little more. Jeff plants a fake snake underneath a cushion to scare Andrew.

Jeff Lewis Designs will be totally gutting George and Monika’s house. It needs it. Gil will be the contractor for this job. Gil is used to working with clients directly, not designers. Monika and George move out during the demo/redesign. Gil is good at his job, but Jeff doesn’t like it that he scares the clients and tries to upsell everything. Gil directly contacted the Eads’ business manager and Jeff is not comfortable with that because he’s the main guy, not Gil. Gil needs to be micro-managed. Jeff tells the business manager only he and Gage should be talking to him. Gil was only hired for the demo portion of the project. He wants to make sure he gets the bid for next phase of the project, but he has pissed Jeff off at this point.

Chaz Dean has bought the adjoining property (La Mirada) to his Salon and Jeff will be making executive offices for Chaz. Chaz’s Business Manager Nuria is there to check both Jeff and Chaz’s tendency to get too creative and go way over budget.

Jeff and Jenni go furniture shopping with Cat Gosselaar who is very pregnant. Cat is so organized and so ready for her baby. Jenni doesn’t seem that worried. Her mom put her in a drawer with a blanket. That’s all you really need – a blanket and a drawer. I love Jenni.

Jeff has a paint line called Jeff Lewis Color. He is preparing for an upcoming design show where he can showcase his paint. He is going to have Andrew dressed in a paint can costume, but he also wants someone to wear a smaller sample can costume, so he’s decided to hire a little person. He wants to do something gimmicky to get people to come to the booth at the convention center. Andrew is responsible for the costume design and hiring the little person.

Jenni is giving Jeff her placenta so he can put it in his yard to make his trees grow. Jenni asks Zoila if women poop when they have a baby. Zoila tells her yes, who cares? Gage and Jeff talk about what will happen if Jenni goes into labor while out on a job.

Andrew goes to Hollywood Blvd. to try to find some little people. He doesn’t want to fail. He finds a little “Mr. T,” who has alcohol on his breath. Andrew doesn’t think he’ll be very reliable. Jeff gets a call from Gage. The company’s number two guy, Nick Hess, found out about Andrew’s scouting and talking about it in the store, and is not happy about it. Now Andrew is back on Gage’s shit list. Andrew didn’t know he had done anything wrong, but apologizes to Gage about talking about it at the paint store. Jeff is nervous about the call with Nick. He’s hoping his paint contract with the company is renewed. Jeff explains what’s going on and Nick just tells Jeff that Andy needs to follow protocol.

Jeff’s staff joins Monika and George Eads for some roller skating. Andrew shows up in a skating costume of little shorts and a tank top. You can tell Gage knows his roller skating skills. Andrew falls about a dozen times. Not a pretty sight.

Jeff thinks Jenni dresses better as a pregnant girl than a non-pregnant girl. Jenni has gained about 30 pounds. Jeff is worried that a big baby will ruin Jenni’s vagina. My question is why Jeff would be concerned about Jenni’s vagina. Jenni plans on getting the husband stitch whether she tears or not.

Deb is back! Jenni calls Monika posing as Deb, the rough and tumble girl from the office. Deb asks Monika if she’s single and Monika says she’s not. Jeff says Monika is strictly dickly.

Jeff decides to hold a casting session for the little person who will dress in his sample paint can. They are looking for a high energy person who will bring people to the booth. They will be wearing the costume for 8 hours. They chose Eric for the job. Andrew is no longer fearful of little people.

Jeff is meeting with David, a potential framer for the Eads house, whose bid is higher than the other bids received, but is much more detailed. Jeff ran into some problems with Gil and having to make change orders along the way. He doesn’t want that to happen with David. David assures Jeff he has the crews and the time to get the job done. Jeff decides to go with him. He’s trusting his instinct. If this framing phase doesn’t work out, David won’t be doing any further phases on the project.

Eric shows up to Gramercy so he and Andrew can try on the paint can costumes. Jeff loves the costumes. Zoila starts singing so they can demonstrate dancing around. Andrew gets praised on the costume design. The costumes will be hot so they need to stay hydrated. Eric and Andrew joke about Jenni’s size and she jokingly has to chastise them as the head of Human Resources.
FO 1
Gage and Jeff get a kick out of watching Jenni’s baby kick and move around. Nobody knows the sex of the baby. Zoila says the baby is looking for the exit. They are all in the kitchen and Jenni says, “Oh my God, my water broke.” There is water on the floor. It’s a big joke, but for a minute Jeff was worried. He tells Jenni the next day she is not to ever wear heels again until she has the baby. He tells Jenni she’s not taking care of herself. She’s not eating well and she’s not getting enough rest. Jeff is worried about Jenni and would tie her to a bed until she had the baby if he could.

Southern Charm – Peter Pan “Sin”drome
S1Ep01 by HydrangeaHussy

Here we go! Bravo’s look into “real” Southern life. I expect to be frustrated and/or enraged within the first five minutes. The intro has Thomas Ravenel telling us that Charlestonians have their ways of being genteel. He isn’t what I would call genteel. Whitney Sudler-Smith points out that there is a small ruling class of old families. He’s from one of them. Craig Conover says that Charleston is a playground for men who never want to grow up. That could be said about many cities, but he’s leading us into today’s theme – the man-child. Cameran & Jenna say that a southern gentleman should not curse, should know how to dress, & be chivalrous. However, the typical Charleston guy doesn’t necessarily display these characteristics. We’re treated to a montage of the men behaving badly. Oh boy, this is going to be long season, we’re only 2 minutes in.

First up is Thomas Ravenel. He lives in the wealthiest section of Charleston & wants us to know that. Whitney tells us that Ravenel is known for hitting on women by using his family history. One thing I’ve learned about old-money in the south is that most don’t brag about what their family has accomplished. Those that do haven’t accomplished much on their own. Now we get to the scandal! Ravenel had a bright political career, but was indicted on drug charges. He’s pretty open about his conviction for cocaine distribution & 6 months of prison time. We get to see pictures of Ravenel (wearing two pairs of sunglasses) relaxing in the prison yard with a fellow inmate. See? He’s a man of the people! Now he’s back in Charleston, winning over women by talking about playing intramural sports in prison. Ravenel seems to think that he’s done his time & that’s that. I’ll be honest here, I’m from Louisiana so a politician in jail doesn’t seem all that odd to me. But Ravenel doesn’t really seem remorseful at all. He’s on this show to resurrect his political career. If Edwin Edwards can do it, I bet Ravenel can!

Next we meet Shep Rose. He comes from the Boykin family & the state dog was named for them. He compares himself to a hyper & annoying Boykin spaniel. Cough, cough. I’m certainly annoyed. We see him wake up late & go surfing. Must be nice. He has a business degree, but he’s more into leisure than work. He meets Cameran for lunch. Her family has been in S.C. for 10 generations. She likes to consider herself modern. She’s getting her real estate license, so she can begin a new career. At least she’s trying to work & support herself. She wants to know about Shep’s relationship with a new girl, M.J. Cameran asks if he’s made out with her or touched her boobs. Such a classy Southern girl! We learn that Shep’s M.O. is to ask girls over to “watch a movie.” So high school! M.J. declined his invitation. Smart woman! Cameran thinks he’ll be married in 2 years – at age 35, which Shep says is way too young. She’s trying to groom him into an eligible bachelor. Shep thinks that he’s going to be like George Clooney – 50 & sleeping w/25 year olds.

Whitney Sudler-Smith has lived all over the world, but has returned to Charleston. He wanted to take a break from the madness of Hollywood & maybe open a restaurant. He lives with Patricia, his mother. We first see her walking around with the house with a martini in hand. She is appalled to find Ann Taylor clothes on Whitney’s floor. She says that it’s disrespectful of women to leave clothes in her house. I like her! It may be a stereotype, but I do know women like her. Whitney is contemplating getting a place of his own, but she guilt-trips him into staying.

We meet Ravenel’s political consultant, Will. He’s also a libertarian – fiscally conservative & socially liberal. Ravenel’s house used to be a bachelor pad, but he’s mellowed now. He’d like to redeem himself, but there are only 3 offices that he can run for as a felon. He’s informed that his social life will be a detriment. His advisor tells him to settle down with Kathryn Dennis, who is from a very well-known political family. Ravenel later says that his advisor’s attitude toward picking a wife is blasé.

Craig Conover is a law student. We seem him at work, in a very small, cubical-like office. Oh, the life of a young associate. He meets with his supervisor, who tells him that he needs to be at work on time. During my first year as an associate, there was no tolerance for lateness – that was reserved for those who paid their dues. Craig seems to think that his socialite status will excuse his tardiness. The people he hangs out with don’t work. His supervisor gives him some wise words – we are judged by the people we hang out with.

Whitney is hosting a party since Southerners like to drink. I’m not even going to try to dispute that – we do love a good party! I’m not sure what the party is for, but he’s insulted when Shep goes on a beer run. Cameran tells us that guys have their pick of women b/c the ratio of men to women is so skewed. Shep’s ex & her friend reveal some more of his childish behavior. He seems to think it’s cute to act like a frat-boy at his age. He wonders what is wrong with just floating through life. Grow up! Craig finally arrives! He’s been in court, but says that it’s more boring than it seems on TV. Shep doesn’t want to hear about anyone’s job. What a great friend. We also meet Kathryn, aka Senate Barbie. Ravenel seems more impressed with her pedigree than with her personality.

It’s morning at Ravenel’s house & he’s bringing Kathryn coffee in bed. What a gentleman! He doesn’t normally like red-heads, but thinks Kathryn is hot. I’m sure she loved hearing that. Ravenel has lunch with his best friend, J.D., who has a wife & kids. J.D. tells us that cocktails happen at any time in Charleston. That’s pretty much true of the South. We enjoy a cocktail with lunch, or brunch! Ravenel talks to J.D. about choosing a wife. J.D. advises him to choose well, as the woman will be his life partner. Ravenel thinks that Kathryn is beautiful & from a good family, but she’s kind of young.

Jenna arrives in Charleston. She tells us that she rebelled against the typical path for Southern women – marriage & children. She is friends with Whitney from LA. They both travel a lot. The two go shopping. Jenna isn’t typical Charleston – she doesn’t have blond hair or wear floral dresses. Whitney feels that she’s a kindred spirit. They go to a rooftop bar to catch up with friends. Cameran & Jenna knew each other in high school. Jenna was alternative even then. Cameran has passed her real estate exam! She’s able to start showing houses now, but she needs a client. She wants to find a house for Whitney. Cameran doesn’t have a trust fund & wants to be able to support herself. She doesn’t want to depend on a man. Good for her! The group is trying to find a respectable girl for Ravenel. They decide he needs to look outside of Charleston.

Ravenel is hosting a polo match & party at his plantation. He has built a polo field there, for almost $1 million. He wants to spend his money while he can & have fun while he’s here. Cameran describes polo for us – horses & Argentian men. The girls have to find hats for the match. She finds it ostentatious to dress up for a polo match, but does it anyway. Shep arrives, wearing his bright blue sunglasses again. They look like something he got at Toys R Us. Whitney is fascinated by the idea that polo team owners actually play on the team.

Jenna enters the party & all of the guys immediately begin scoping her out like fresh meat. Craig says that whoever she shows interest in first will get the first opportunity with her. The other men will step back. I’m hoping that she doesn’t show interest in any of these guys. She & Shep bond over their sunglasses. Ugh! The match ends & it’s time for dinner. Everyone troops over to the house. Ravenel hires a catering company so that he can enjoy sitting down to dinner with his friends. First, he has to go outside & ring the dinner bell. Craig tries to ask about Ravenel’s horses, but Shep takes the opportunity to steer the conversation to sex. He’s really getting on my nerves. Cameran wants to know who Ravenel would be better suited with – a Scarlett or a Melanie? The group agrees that he needs a Scarlett. He asks the girls if they prefer a Rhett or an Ashley? The guys find Ashley to be a wimp, but the girls say that he’s stable, which is attractive. Ravenel sees himself as a Rhett. Shep continues flirting with Jenna, but she tells him that he’ll never have her. She says that what he isn’t getting is that she isn’t interested in him.

The conversation turns to Ravenel’s scandal. Cameran asks if he thinks public opinion of him is negative. He makes a joke about liking cocaine. As Whitney points out, not a good move if he wants to continue in politics. People want to see you remorseful, not joking about your actions. After dinner, the group goes skinny-dipping in the lake. Well, swimming wearing clothes which isn’t really skinny-dipping. Back in the house, Whitney sits down with Ravenel to give him some unwanted advice. Ravenel doesn’t want to hear that his persona needs to be more humble. Ravenel says that it would be hypocritical to try to be something he isn’t. I agree with Whitney, Ravenel needs to change his image. Ravenel says that he wasn’t reckless, the laws were.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning again everyone. 😀

  2. Pghemtchick says:

    Zillow has the last but price of Gramercy at 2.6M. Jeff re bought it for 1.6m and according to them listed it at 3.195M back in July.


  3. Veena (NMD) says:

    Housewife friends or real friends

  4. Veena (NMD) says:

    I’m probably alone on this – but I like that Joyce handled it privately rather than on twitter – and as far as I can see didn’t retweet Carlon’s tweet.

    • Anne says:

      No Brandi tweets? No Yolanda tweets? No tweets acknowledging texts or calls? Reunion must have been interesting. BTW, although I think that I would find Joyce’s relentless cheerfulness a bit annoying at times, based on what we’ve seen on Bravo and the interviews I’ve heard and read, she does seem like a genuinely nice person.

      • ladebra says:

        I like Joyce. She’s a strong woman who takes up for herself when she needs to IMO. I am also guilty of being a happy person. I generally like other happy people, and I really like her husband’s no nonsense attitude also.

        • Anne says:

          I like Joyce too. I particularly enjoyed the fact that she stood up to both Brandi and Carlton during the season. I also don’t think that there is anything wrong with being happy either, but I think it might get on my nerves at times. Joyce and her life certainly present a significant contrast to several of the other cast members, who seem to be consistently miserable.

          • ladebra says:

            Co-sign (homage)

          • SJNYC says:

            Perky can be annoying, but I think she has earned another season. If she can break out of pageant mode she might make it. And agree, like Michael, he seems to have a brain

        • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

          I agree I like her. The show’s dynamic would be so much nicer without Brandi and Kim.

        • trudie says:

          I like Joyce too. She is not afraid to stand up to the rest of them.

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

      I don’t understand why anyone would need to text tweet email call or whatever-Carlton didn’t go to the hospital b/c of a medical crisis-she went because she BLACKED OUT. From doing shots..6 of them…she’s lucky they didn’t all tweet about what a complete idiot she is! I see people on twitter feeling so sorry for her and wishing her well and I’m so confused.

      • laineylainey says:

        I would appreciate people checking on me if I passed out drunk somewheres,…and woke up on my side. hehe hehe

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

          Fully clothed..only shoes off…
          I get it that people are checking up on her but seriously she wasn’t rushed to the hospital with chest pains or appendicitis! She was DRUNK!

          • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

            Yeah, let’s remember this when speaking about Kim. She did this to herself.

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

              I personally don’t really have an opinion on Kim except that her TH make me laugh and that Lisa and Ken treat her like she is not worthy of their time-other than that all I have to say is Kim is an addict that is at least trying to get better..Carlton in a grown woman who went out and drank herself into a stupor and is getting messages on twitter-“hope you are felling better”…better than what? Better than she did after the first 5 shots? I never saw such concern for a drunk woman in my life-not a recovering drunk woman -an actual passed out drunk woman. That’s weird to me.

              • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

                Jill, Carlton’s had this level of support from her twitter followers the whole time. She answers a lot of people. She’s not calling them names or telling them to eff off like Leann’s husband’s ex-wife. I doubt Carlton is out drinking every night as her kids appear well-adjusted. A bad night does not make a bad person.

                Kim, however, is checking herself out of rehab early, relapsing, and not following any 12 step program. She refuses to apologize to people for her past behavior and still blames everyone else. She has a lot of nerve yelling at Ken like a crazy person. She should be atoning.

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

                  Rebecca-check Carlton’s TL again but go back before she started kissing Lisa’s butt-there were so many FUs and so many nasty tweets to her-which I don’t think is right but the tide changed on this chick and a lot has to do with where she is placing her lips. If Carlton got drunk and passed out 3 zepisodes ago she would not be getting the same amount of support she is now…and I will never understand why she needs support for a black out. A bad night does not make a bad person but my reasons for not liking Carlton do not stem from a bad night out. If Carlton doesn’t want to be judged one a bad night out she is in the wrong business. Of course this is only my opinion and I don’t expect it will be the same for all.

                  • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

                    She has been getting love for months.

              • NYC Mama says:

                Jill, I don’t agree that Kim is trying to get better. She is trying to pretend she is all better but she is not doing anything that she should be to ensure that she stays on the path of being sober permanently.

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

                  nyc-I don’t know what Kim is doing-I don’t know if she is following her 12 steps or not-I know what I see on a TV show and I don’t see her drinking. I don’t know what path she is on but I don’t think that b/c she yells at Ken or questions Lisa that she isn’t following her steps. (I know you didn’t say anything about this) .

                  • NYC Mama says:

                    Jill, I have a friend who watches the show and is disgusted with Kim because she says it is clear that she is not following a 12 step program and based on some of her actions and words she doesn’t think she is doing much of anything except maybe a bit of therapy. Another recovering friend feels the same way.

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

                      Like I said above I really don’t have a strong opinion on Kim-I didnt expect to see her doing her 12 steps on the Real housewives of Beverly Hills so I’m not surprised that we don’t see that side of her-we see the dramatic side-which is what Bravo wants us to see.

                    • NYC Mama says:

                      I wouldn;t expect them to show her in a 12 step program if nothing else because the others in recovery deserve their privacy but there are indicators that one can see in those who are working the program and those that aren’t. Both say she isn’t and they both have seen indicators that she will revert to her old behavior eventually Neither think she is taking it as serious as she needs to.

                  • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

                    She’s still drunk. I refuse to laugh at someone making a drunken fool of herself.

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

                      Since I don’t know if she’s drunk I don’t mind laughing.

  5. Eastbayca says:

    JillZ is directing Luann’s video….old RHONY

  6. ladebra says:

    Happy Friday! Great blogs BB and HH. I forgot to tape Flipping out 😦 gotta fix that. I really enjoy Jeff et.al. He is wildly inappropriate, but he is funny.

    I taped Southern Charm, and going to watch this weekend. I don’t know HH, but from the previews there is a pregnancy and 3 possible fathers? I hope this is just editing and not the case. Wouldn’t that mean she slept with the 3 daddies within the same short time period? I’m pretty liberal, but I don’t think I would put that on TV. Maybe she is auditioning. Oh well, gonna watch this weekend!

  7. Anne says:

    Thank you for blogging Southern Charm, which I thought was very amusing. Honestly, I would not think it the best way to resurrect a political career. From what I understand, Thomas Ravenel is a pretty conservative republican, although he is also a libertarian. I think it would be risky to expose his personal life on reality tv, especially a network like Bravo. I guess we will see.

    • SJNYC says:

      Is it just me or do they seem young? Or do I just sound old?

      • Anne says:

        Thomas Ravenel is 51 (according to his wiki page — of course that may not be accurate). I hope that is young — he is my age!! Whitney also seems like mid-40s. The others seem younger to me — mostly in their early thirties, I would guess,. The lifestyle seems odd to me — I was working 50 – 60 hour weeks in my early 30’s and was pretty well established in my career by then. Then again, I was still paying for student loans and managing a mortgage on my own too. No trust fund for me!

        • SJNYC says:

          Good point, I was focus on the others beside Ravenel. I will be 47 next month and I am yield of selfish kids. I do sound old!

    • I’m not so sure that putting Thomas Ravenal’s bad behavior on television is a detriment to his political future. Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford was just elected to Congress despite his hike along the Appalachian Trail with his Argentinean mistress.

      • Anne says:

        I would think it would be hard for him to win a primary, because he would not be perceived to have conservative values. Then again, I know nothing about the political climate in South Carolina — would an affair be perceived differently than a felony drug conviction and playboy life style? I guess we will see.

  8. SJNYC says:

    Happy Friday. I am running around with appointments but wanted to say hi, before disappearing. I think Jeff is childish ass, but I think he owns it and has fun so i like watching him.

  9. ladebra says:

    Oh gosh, before I forget again, I just want to wish you safe journey Veena, and may you and your husband have the most wonderful, memorable, amazing, dazzling, breath taking, trip of your life. May you make unforgettable memories, make lifelong friends and take lots of pictures! 💕

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I am so excited for you Veena. Bob Voyage

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Thank you! Tuesday AM can not come soon enough.

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

        Ohh it’s coming so fast! Im so excited for you Veena but I have to say I’m going to miss you here! I know you don’t really comment much but I know you are always “around”…it’s comforting! I can’t wait to read your travel blog and keep up with your adventure-I hope you have the time of your life!!

        • Ditto. Very excited for you Veena but I know I will miss you very much! Looking forward for your traveling blog! Great experiences are coming in your near future… know that (Lol)

          • laineylainey says:

            Ditto3. So happy and excited for you!! I want to learn from your travels,…maybe hubs and I can do something like that one fine day.

            • Amber...Real Wife says:

              Ditto to the Dittos. Have a safe trip and a wonderful time! Will read your posts and play ‘Where in the World is VeenaLynnFamLeader?’

      • chismosa™ says:

        So excited for you Veena ……

        It’s the final countdown ……

    • NYC Mama says:

      Safe travels Veena, your itinerary looks wonderful. I have been to the locations you will be traveling to and know you will have an amazing trip, experiences and lots of tales to tell. Safe travels.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        *hugs Veena really hard* – have fun, my friend – make memories and have fun doing it – be safe, be well – be happy – and on a selfish note – hurry back to us!!

    • sparklemuffy says:

      Yay !! I am so excited too 🙂 Safe travels. Whenever DH and I embark on something big, we make a deal that we will not get upset, roll with the punches etc.. ( we actually shake on it and everything) this has worked out sooooo good! It keeps the stressful stuff in perspective and we look at each other and laugh and say, “we are not getting upset—it’s part of the fun.” Happy travels 🙂

  10. Sus says:

    I thought it was very sweet when Jeff was admonishing Jenni about taking care of herself. Normally I would hate that, especially when I’m pregnant. I don’t know why I give him a pass.

    Andrew’s roller skating outfit reminded me of Bethenny’s disco roller girl.

    I’m glad the water breaking joke was the first show and it’s over with. I’m a stick in the mud on this. 7 months isn’t the best time for the baby to come. There’s lots of medical help now when that happens but I feel badly for a baby (and the parents) having to go through that. It wasn’t funny.

    I’m hoping for a Jeff, Gage, Zoila and baby show next. Jeff will never sleep again because the baby won’t be breathing unless his eyes are seeing the breathing. I feel sorry for him on that. I’m a little obsessive but Jeff wins the prize.

    Southern Charm – I don’t know. Boring I guess. The guys – I can’t even come up with anything other than ewwww. Gentlemen don’t bring women back to their mother’s house.

    I’m becoming such a prude. What a drag 😦

    • Orson says:

      I can easily imagine Jeff planting a long range monitor in Jenni’s baby’s room that he can make sure the baby is breathing way over in his house., 😆

    • chismosa™ says:

      I’m in shock of how unprepared Jenni is.
      Id be a psycho preparer. I’m a walking Filofax though. My friends know to book me WAY in advance I can’t/ hate to be fly by the seat of my pants.

    Ok, hiding my iPad and typing, best line of Southern Charm blog “I’ll be honest here, I’m from Louisiana so a politician in jail doesn’t seem all that odd to me.” – I was on the floor dying!

    Hello all. I’m back from the doc. I see NY w/Cindy Who? is on. And Ramona is about to take the pregnancy test. Lol that was funny. 😀 Well I’m going to drink my hot chocolate then lay down. Not feeling to well at the moment.

  15. T-Rex says:

    Good Morning! My cousin went to Law School with someone that lives in Charleston, and in his 50’s now, he just divorced wife number 3, who was 26 years old when they married two years ago! He is TOTALLY like what HHoney describes in the blog for these folks. I haven’t watched the show, but I have been to this guys house and at 10am he was offering us a cocktail, well because it was a Saturday and that’s not a work day, so 10am was the cocktail hour. He doesn’t want kids but he keeps marrying these “babies” as we refer to them, who tell him “oh no, not having kids isn’t a problem”, then the minute he marries them they want kids. He had a vasectomy at 30, so they can’t trap him either. His last two wives wanted him to get the V reversed, after a year or so of marriage, and he countered with Divorce Papers, seriously, he had them ready to go with both of those ex-wives! We can’t figure out why these women think they will change a dude in his 50’s who had a Vasectomy at 30? So, may watch this show for Sh*ts/Giggles.

    • Powell says:

      LOL T-Rex. He had the divorce papers ready? It sounds like to me that he just wants a younger woman and doesn’t have a problem marrying them and staying married as long as they know the rules. Tough luck on the women. They knew what they were getting into. When I start watching now I’m gonna say, “hmmm. Is that one like T-Rex’s cuz? 🙂

      • T-Rex says:

        Actually he is my Cousin’s friend. I wish he were my cousin, he is a HOOT. Oh, and since he is an attorney, he has in his files his Pre-nup for when he gets married, right next to his Divorce papers! These women knew GOING IN, that he would divorce them immediately if they brought up wanting children. He likes kids, but he’s in his 50’s now, and like he said, he wouldn’t want to be attending his kids high school graduation in a wheelchair and depends!

    • Eastbayca says:

      Sounds like he needs a “Trophy wife 2.0”

      • T-Rex says:

        I think that would be Trophy wife 4.0 in his case, LOL! He is dating an ex-stripper right now, and again this bimbo is saying EVERYTHING he wants to hear, doesn’t want kids, wants to just travel with him, yadda yadda, she is 29 years old and my Cousin told him even SHE could hear that Bimbo’s baby-clock ticking!

        • Eastbayca says:

          I recently learned Trophy wife 2.0 is the modern trophy wife educated, beautiful, hubby interest comes first. He seems to be hooking-up with the old version beautiful, have babies and remain beautiful.

    • BB says:

      Hey, the man know what he wants. Can’t fault him for that. lol

      • T-Rex says:

        It was so funny, the ex-wife said that she was “blind-sided” and that she didn’t think he would divorce her, uhm your wife #3, of course he would! He doesn’t even give them a second chance either. He found out through a medical bill that she had gone to a Fertility Specialist, and that was it, he served her divorce papers the next day. Now, mind you, the marriage wasn’t going so well either, I think this time it was an excuse to get out of the marriage. Oh, and since it’s in the Pre-Nup “no kids”, she walked away with very little in the divorce, he wasn’t evil about it, but she didn’t get to walk away with half his money either. Did I mention she was an ex-stripper too? LOL! He likes those gals for some reason, UGH, men!

  16. Powell says:

    OMG the leg. I think that’s what I’m looking forward to the most on NY. 😉

  17. Eastbayca says:

    Watching the RHONY (preview or first glance or whatever it is called)….they is a lot of cursing going on.

      Right, I noticed that too! Didn’t sound like the NY of the past, I immediately blamed Kristen….you know, she is a friend of Brandi and she ::::beep:::: all over :::beep::: Beverly Hills. Then I noticed Heather was heavy in the :::beep::: and shut the :::beep::: up. Clutching my pearls at Holla Heather having a verbal throw down! But I’m sure Aviva deserves it!

    Teen suing parents rages at ‘spoiled’ baby boomers

    The New Jersey parents being sued for tuition by their entitled teenager were excoriated in a Friday rant on her new Facebook page as “spoiled” baby boomers who would rather feather a retirement nest than pay their kids’ college bills.

    “I have been stunned by the financial greed of modern parents who are more concerned with retiring into some fantasy world rather than provide for their children’s college and young adult years,” a poster — presumed to be Morris Catholic HS senior Rachel Canning or a supporter — wrote in the pre-dawn web screed.
    “Suburban baby boomer types are the spoiled lot, they make massive amount of money a year, they are used to flying to luxury destinations when they want, and buy things that they don’t need, people should be inclined to see things my way.”

    The post appeared on the “Education for Rachel” Facebook page, which Canning previously told The Post she set up to support her cause.

    The venomous Friday message suggested that, if Canning’s parents don’t foot her education bills, she’ll have no future unless she joins the armed forces.
    “In today’s economy there are no more meaningful jobs and without family help it’s usually military or bust,” the poster gripes.
    “I see parents like this every day, children were always an accessory to them and nothing more, once that accessory grew up and went out of fashion, much like a marriage that people allegedly commit to, the child becomes a throwaway, that’s just how it is.”

    The Facebook post went up just hours after a report that the man bankrolling her lawsuit allowed the teen to get boozed up and throw wild ragers in his home.
    Powerful attorney John Inglesino, who took Rachel under his wing, let her get drunk on vodka in his Rockaway Township house when she was 15, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
    Parents Sean and Elizabeth Canning claim in court documents that Inglesino provided their daughter with not only a home but a place to drink and party. Rachel’s dad claims she had once been so hung over from a night of drinking, she puked all over a sidewalk and into a garbage can, the Mail reported.
    Rachel’s parents also claim the Inglesino family hosted parties and paid for rides in
    “Rachel was angry because we would not host an alcoholic party,” her dad said in court papers.

    “Rachel’s first time drinking alcohol was at the Inglesino house.”

    Rachel Canning wants her parents to fork over money for tuition, room, board, transportation and other expenses.

    Inglesino — whose daughters are friends with Rachel — fired back in court papers that Rachel deserves an opportunity to realize her goals.
    “Rachel is likable, communicates exceptionally well and is highly motivated,” Inglesino wrote in a court filing. “That is why my wife and I have decided to fund [her] lawsuit.”
    In a response, Rachel’s parents said the politically connected lawyer has helped tear the family apart. “The Inglesinos, while purporting to help, have actually been a tremendous hindrance in family healing,” Elizabeth Canning said in a sworn statement.

    In a Morristown court Tuesday, after Rachel filed for an emergency order to get $600 a week from her parents, Judge Peter Bogaard blasted the young woman, referring to an obscene voicemail she left for her mother.“Have you ever seen a young adult show such gross disrespect to a parent in a voicemail?” he asked. “The child thumbs her nose at her parents, leaves the house and turns around asking, ‘Now you have to pay me money every week.’ ”

    Sean and Elizabeth said their eldest daughter refused to obey basic household rules and left on her own.
    For Rachel to get money from her parents, she’ll have to show at the next scheduled court hearing that she was thrown out of their Lincoln Park house or feared physical danger, legal experts said.


    • T-Rex says:

      I actually see both sides of this mess. First off the PARENTAL UNITS brought up an “entitlement brat”, I have read the information and up until the BRAT was in high school, she basically had no rules, the PARENTAL UNITS wanted to be more “friends” than “parents” to the Brat, and once the Brat got into High school, decided to put their foot down finally, doesn’t work like that. So BRATLINA does as every Entitlement Brat, they rebel and try to work over their parents. They all need some serious FAMILY COUNSELING and that other family needs to stay the HELL OUT of family business, IMO.

      • Mene Seela says:

        The daughter reminds me of Casey Anthony without the baby.

      • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

        She NEEDS to join the military. Why is it her parents had to pay their own college tuition and she doesn’t? Get a student loan! Go to in in-state school! Join the GI program! This stupid kid is insane – and what the hell is wrong with the lawyer fitting her bills?

      • chismosa™ says:

        I HATE friend-parents.

        My mom is my BFF but she is MY MOM

        Ughhhhhh smh

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      F*ck Rachel.. F*ck her in the ear (can any of you entitled boomers tell me what that reference is from?)

      • T-Rex says:

        The ENTITLEMENT BRAT HANDBOOK I would guess. Never heard of this one before either.

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          Goodfellas… when someone doesn’t want to pay Jimmy (Robert Denero) what he’s owed..But, The ENTITLEMENT BRAT HANDBOOK works too 😉

          • T-Rex says:

            OH and BRATLINA’S PARENTAL UNITS have a lot of blame here too, they helped write that book by not giving WIDDLEBRATLINA rules and discipline while growing up so that when the MONSTERBRATLINA got into High School and started her crap, all of sudden the PARENTAL UNITS want to break in some RULES, uhm you created the GODZILLABRATLINA and Now you have to deal with her Crap. Mind you this OTHER FAMILY that’s involved that’s the weird part, I would be checking them for ulterior motives for sure, they don’t have GODZILLABRATLINA’s best interest at heart. Wonder how LOADED the Parental Units are, because sounds like everyone in this is angling for a payout~!

    • Eastbayca says:

      Another AFFLUENZA case?

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      This story is ridiculous! As the 3RealDaughters of a hard working union man, we knew we had to make our own way to college. Yes these parents could pay for her schooling even though she seems to be a disrespectful asshat, but what is wrong w/ making her accountable? Her sense of entitlement as she demands that they pay for her education while she behaves deplorably is disgusting. The lawyer, instead of funding her lawsuit and partying, should have just paid for her schooling if he was so sympathetic. Here’s a novel idea… She gets a JOB and goes to school P/T or F/T and really EARNS her degree. Hard work builds character while a lazy, vengeful leech and professional victim makes a litigant.

      • Mene Seela says:

        They are ALL jerks.
        The parents will probably allow this venomous snake back into their nest just so she can truly destroy the rest of her family. I feel sorry for her sibling/s.

      • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

        I bet you didn’t grow up in the everybody gets a trophy age… Now that the true results of that are coming to light, Nation of self entitled pussies.

      • Powell says:

        Right Amber. Just like most of us had to do. Get a job and pay for school yourself.

    • Jules says:

      College is not a right of birth. I have never understood why parents think they need to go into debt to send their children or why colleges or kids think parents should pay. I may be a minority but my parents didn’t pay for my college. I worked (babysat, at a department store, etc) starting at around 13 and saved my money. this was when babysitting paid about $1.25Hr. did you know you can babysit and then go out your friends house for a sleepover. Also, sitting allowed me to have good study time after kids went to bed. I went to a small private liberal arts college and applied for scholarships. Didn’t get any loans. so many scholarships they paid me each quarter.

      I am under the 18 and out thinking. Not parents job is done or really get out but after graduating from high school get yourself together.

      I have 6 siblings and we all paid our own way. most have masters and 2or 3 have PHds. one went into the reserves back in the late 80s to pay for college. but the rest scholarships and worked in middle and high school.

      • SJNYC says:

        I am with you. I had a single mother who helped when she could and believe me $20 in an envelope was like xmas, but I got scholarships, students loans, grad assistant ships and worked when I could to pay for my undergraduate work and my MBA & MS. This entitlement crap is just that crap.

        • Jules says:

          SJNYC I totally get the $20 in like christmas. I am a big saver because of my childhood. Don’t get me wrong i spend but not on things just to spend. Bet You know the value of a dollar don’t you?

        • Powell says:

          Me too. Single mom, grants, jobs, one job paid for 80% of my tuition, and no student loans. Thk God I didn’t get student loans. They are killers to manage to pay back.

      • T-Rex says:

        We were EXTREMELY LUCKY, my parents paid for all of us to go to college, they started saving for our college back when we were born, back in the late 60’s when folks weren’t even doing that then. My parents both paid their own way through college and vowed to pay our way if they could. NOW with that being said, We were also brought up with rules and regulations in the household from DAY ONE, and if you didn’t like it then your happy ass could “bounce on out” the minute you hit 18! I was an idiot and “bounced” and came crawling back in 6 months, and they agreed to still pay for my school. We all worked while in college for our extras, and we all were VERY GREATFUL to our parents for their generosity of college, my sister and brother have also higher degrees, I just have a BA. We would NEVER have thought to sue or bring my parents into court or public if they didn’t pay for our college. We had the UTMOST respect for our parents and did as we were told, up until the day my dad died, we treated him that way, and we still treat my mother that way. I don’t get this new crop of BRAT-LETS folks are raising

    • Powell says:

      I don’t know about this case. All I’ve heard parents on tv and radio saying they wouldn’t give her anything, she deserves nothing, she needs to work for what she wants, if she can’t follow the rules then she can’t live at home. I understand her wanting an education and wanting her parents to pay for it, but it seems like she’s very disrespectful and if she can’t live by her parents rules then she needs to be on her own.

    Caught a different showing of SouthernCharm….

    What’s wrong w/ Cameron? Always the friend on RealWorld and now here … where’s her man? Razanel is Rhett. Whitney is slightly creepvillian. Shep is a horndog. Craig is cute but soft. Jenna looks like a friggin grinning bird! Are these guys really puffing out their chests and spreading their peacock feathers for a toothy chickenhead? Say it ain’t so Joe, Say it ain’t so!

    • Anne says:

      Hey Amber, I agree with all of your comments except about Ravenel. He’s no Rhett Butler. Rhett is one of my first literary boyfriends (right after Laurie in Little Women and Prince Caspian in Voyage of the Dawn Treader). So, please, I beg you — don’t equate Ravenel with Rhett. There is simply no comparison.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        You know you are probably right! I am ashamed to say that I never finished GWTW. It’s 5 hours so I gave up at age 14. My first impressions of Rhett was that he was a handsome pushy cad. My sister, who lives for GWTW recently told me he was really in love w/ Scarlett and they had a daughter who he adored and I was like WHAT??!!!

        So Anne I will say Ravenel WISHES he were Rhett but he’s just a cad w/ a southern accent and alot of money. 😉

        • Anne says:

          LOL Amber. Although I agree with your read on Ravenel. Your sister and I would get along great! I fell in love with Rhett as a tween and read the book after my parents took us to see the movie in a theater (with the intermission between reels) back in the mid 70’s. It was the first book that I read and did not want to put down.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Anne I had to read it freshman summer year — required reading.
            I refuse to watch the movie ever and Rhett is burned in my mind a certain way. Books allow you to do that for yourself and movies do it for you. No thanks.

            I cried for hours when the book ended !

      DID YO WEAR ORANGE to the reunion last year too?

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      YoFo is a rude sow andI hope that Joyce doesn’t allow her to get away w/ her dismissive jabs. She is obviously helping Brandi and Carlton and she goes on to say something about Joyce not allowing others to talk and that she feels sorry for her husband. Joyce needs to cut her back and say “i actually feel sorry for you because at least my husband cares for me and show up!’ OR ‘Don’t worry about my husband you need to worry about yours!’

  22. chismosa™ says:

    Thanks for the recaps ladies …
    I think I’m going to give southern charm a try. The girl from real world reminds me of the girl who was on Southern Belles- they look SO alike. 
    I want some mint juleps and sweet tea. 
    Flipping out. This saddens me the house is for sale. I know Jeff is super pragmatic so if he will make the profit he doesn’t want to walk away from it. 😦
    I wonder if he’ll build a new family home. 

    Gramercy seems to have a very small kitchen though? Is it just me?
    Jeff does too much grey and too modern for me but I would give him my house simply to hang out with him. Since it seems mandated that all his clients become his friends too 😜

    Also WHY is ANDREW still there? I really thought he was let go or Jeff had said on WWH last time that he was no longer with them. He’s a complete mess and I don’t trust him. Jeff is too forgiving. I side with gage on this and am so happy Jeff has gage with him. I was CAGEy on GAGE but now I like him. 
    It reminds me of my mom being the Gage to my father the crazy Jeff and working together day in and day out.

    Thanks to BB and HydrangeaHussy for the recaps! Flipping Out was such a fun season opener! And I didn’t see all of Southern Charm, so the recap helped fill in all the blanks…and about politicians in Louisiana, LOL! I’m going to give the Southern Charm another look. The problem is too much on Monday night and so little DVR space.

    I missed 2nd episode of Private Lives of Nashville Wives….anyone know if it’s as good as the first? I found it replays on Saturday. I tell you, if those women get jealous or nasty with one another – I’m out!

    I think those of us that hang in there with the HW turning mean and nasty is just because we’ve invested so much into their backstory (years in many cases) that as long as there is at least ONE woman to root for we’ll stick around to see it through. Just speaking for myself, with that “we” term….though it might fit some other folks mindset though.

    Reading blogs by Yofo frim her fist season in RHOBH. She was very loving of Lisa and Ken. Very critical of Taylor. Very loving to Brandi. Not very nice to Kyle or Adrienne. Kim’s a non-entity.
    She was very critical of Scheanna even using her name on a title of her blog. She is also criticizes Scheana on another blog. Yofo, who I don’t think knew Brandi very well was very mad at Scheanna.

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

      • VV™ says:

        I don’t recall either. Her blog title is “Shame on Scheana” Written Jan 7, 2013.

        • Powell says:

          Well is she still saying Shame on Mohamed and Shame on David? We all know what Scheana did was wrong but it was all Eddie. He’s the one that told Scheana lie upon lie which she believed. Yo needs to get over herself and her high and mighty attitude.

          • VV™ says:

            I’m thinking Yofo is the one chirping on Brandi’s ears about Scheana.
            When Brandi agreed to talk to Scheana, she told Lisa that she wanted to do it because needed answers to certain things.
            I agree. Eddie left Brandi for LeAnn. Scheana was one of many…

    One day, in line at the company cafeteria, Joe says to Mike, “My elbow hurts like hell. I guess
    I’d better see a doctor.” “Listen, you don’t have to spend that kind of money,”

    Mike replies. “There’s a diagnostic computer down at Costco. Just give it a urine sample and the computer will tell you what’s wrong and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds and costs ten dollars. A lot cheaper than a doctor.”

    So, Joe deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to Costco.

    He deposits ten dollars and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample. He pours the sample into the slot and waits. Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout:

    “You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks. Thank you for shopping at Costco.”

    That evening, while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Joe began wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and a sperm sample from himself for good measure. Joe hurries back to Costco, eager to check the results. He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and awaits the results.

    The computer prints the following:
    1. Your tap water is too hard.
    Get a water softener. (Aisle 9)
    2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo. (Aisle 7)
    3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab.
    4. Your wife is pregnant. Twins. They aren’t yours. Get a lawyer.
    5. If you don’t stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never
    get better.

          Jill really over played what she thought was her shining season. She tried to be snarky and funny and it totally backfired-she came off looking foolish! She was nosy and bossy -more so than usual. She thought she was the Queen Bee but she ended up being a wannabe!!

    Did anyone watch the first look ???

    I hate YO!
    Love her dress and her shoes more. 😦

  33. chismosa™ says:

    VV I just made a side by side pic of the two Kyle talking heads. I’m so proud of myself!


  34. VV™ says:

    Here’s a tweet from Carol Radziwill being an ass. This is not the real Giggy account. She knows it’s a fake account. The real Giggy is @Giggythepom

  35. iceNfire says:

    Hello – I remember Cameron from Real World San Diego. I didn’t like her or any of the roommates that season b/c Frankie was dying and they all knew it. I understand those kids were excited to be on The Real World and just wanted to have fun. Frankie was very unpleasant at times and the roommates cut her very little slack.
    Frankie died at age 25. I truly hope Cameron and all the other roommates have learned to have a bit more compassion over the years. Again, they were in their early 20’s having the time of their lives on MTV’s hit show. …idk why this still bothers me so much -sry

  36. VV™ says:

    Evolution promoted Brandi’s podcast two days ago. It’s inly fear that Scheana gets a plug as well.

  37. Anne says:

    Off topic: Vegas odds on NeNe winning Dancing with the Stars are 15:1. On this listing that I saw, she is currently slated to leave 5th (after Diana Nyad, Drew Carey, Billy Dee Williams and Sean Avery. I am not a regular viewer of DWTS, but I definitely will be watching the premiere.

  38. What about if Brandi’s news is that she will be in Celebrity Apprentice? Do we know if Kenya will be there for sure?

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I said that the other day. Lol. it just popped in my head with the timing. All I could think was “Awwwl, hell no! Tart better not be on my tv!”
      Haven’t read it anywhere, but can’t help but think it’s be the kinda crap NBC pulls to rehab a character. It was just a musing.

      • Since Yolanda tweet telling Brandi #YouGotIt I’ve been thinking about her possibly been in CA instead of the first tweet that Kenya Moore was going to be there. Never confirmed btw. But we know that Trump knows that HW’s in his show brings more audience. I started liking Teresa during CA… I confess I was watching to laugh at her but she won my heart there… out of NJ. Not the same with Nene… I started disliking her right there in CA. Go figure…

    • T-Rex says:

      You know what I don’t watch that show anyway but would love to see her get her ass handed to her on that show because no one will put up with a lying skank-ho on that show! Plus everyone would see how dumb THE-LIAR-SUPREME-MORONSTFUBranid truly is, so I say bring it on, just to see what an idiot she makes of herself!

      • Pghemtchick says:

        I would love to see Ivanka steamroll her with logic and wit. I fear the Donald would be enamoured with her. That would ruin it for me.

    • SJNYC says:

      Botox Barbie has a tweet about someone helping her send a 72 page fax for a home loan so think her news is she is buying a house.

  39. Pghemtchick says:

    OT: I’ve been listening to the news about the missing Malaysian Aircraft for the last hour. This is so sad and some of the people talking have no compassion. It’s just the grim facts since they at this point are MIA and guaranteed out of fuel. I wish someone on the news would bring up Air Inter flight 148 that crashed back in ’92 into the Vosage Mountains in France. The plane literally crashed into a mountain and 9 people lived. So just because it’s missing doesn’t mean everyone is dead. The survivors of that crash stumbled thru the woods until they happened upon a news crew in the area-who thought the survivors were a hoax until they finally followed them back. Although, thanks to those who lost their lives on Air Inter these families will have a better chance of knowing what happened via the black boxes. The boxes were upgraded after the Air Inter crash to withstand over 2 hours of heavy burn. It wasnt so much the burn, but the liquid used to surround the device steamed the data after 2 hours.
    I guess my rant is that it’s frustrating that they aren’t portraying any hope. Knowing there are 2 infants on this flight along with the other 297 people, you’d think they could at least hold out some hope. Who knew watching the Smithsonian channel would actually stick in my head. >.< hoping for some positive news out of this.

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

    Here comes a twitter break down..I bet she is waiting for her kids to call..of course this has to played out on twitter…or I could be wrong and she’s wait for her Chinese food?

    • VV™ says:

      I didn’t like she tweeted that magazine cover of US Weekly with Juicy and Teresa pic and headline: Why we confessed. Before you know it she’s picked fights with every single HW in every city.

      • kit9 says:

        I doubt Mr and Mrs Lying Thief would have a problem with it. It appears they granted an interview.

    • MelTheHound – Team T-Rex™ says:

      • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

        ^^^^^^^^ BTW, JnnTJ, this is meant for Leann’s husband’s ex wife, not you 😉

        I thought I read somewhere today she was married once before EC?

        • NJBev says:

          yes she was, to a dancer, I believe, in her back-ups.
          I thought it was a joke at the time as she was 18 or something-
          she ended up emancipating from her father(control freak) and
          married him- they were married for like 8 or so years
          she ended up divorcing him when she fell for EC

          • MelTheHound – Team T-Rex™ says:

            Thank you NJBev… Not quite sure what it means but I wonder if there was any cheating involved when she hooked up with EC. In other words, was she his first Leann or Scheana? OR was he Hers?

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

              I don’t think Brandi was married before Eddie-is that what you were asking Jeff? I think Bev might be talking about Leann being married when she got with Eddie.

              • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

                No, what I am talking about is I read somewhere recently, may have even been here, that she (the ex wife) was married before..

              • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

                Not saying you or Bev are wrong.. My original question was about Brandi… Maybe should have clarified that.

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

                  Brandi wasn’t married before Eddie-she did have a fake wedding in Vegas a few years ago to her friend Darin-maybe that’s what you read? Idk? But I’m 99% sure she was only married to Eddie.

    • Orson says:

      Context would be useful here.

  41. VV™ says:

    Hey E! News.


  42. VV™ says:

    Those two are still at it.

    • mrs peabody says:

      Someone ought to tweet Brandi’s to Yolanda so she can buy them for her.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      You know, after thinking about it, is it possible Lele had these shoes and Brandi was the copycat this time? I mean her boys were with her when she tweeted it supposedly, so one could have said of those are bonus moms. Perfect time for the game to continue.

      Don’t get me wrong-I think LeAnn is BSC… It’s just Brandi exposed her bat cave and well, she’s BSC too.

  45. Ladebra says:

    Oo Marina del Rey. 3.2 quake. I’m ready for these to stop. I’ve felt 4 in the last month.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      What!!? Very unsettling. I remember feeling rumbles when we slept when we lived in California. I would wake up all alarmed,.. My husband would remind me “Honey, we live right next to the Garden Grove Freeway.”

      • ladebra says:

        I can handle 3.2 – usually I don’t feel them unless they are over 4. But these have been close, a little too close. I really don’t want to go through another big one. (In SF when we broke the bridge, moved to LA right after the last big one down here). 😛

  46. Pghemtchick says:

    Any real estate agents here want to work with Josh Flagg? I smell a spin off, but he’s taking apications for people to mentor into being a power broker. Here’s the video of him explaining it and how to apply:


    • LaineyLainey says:

      That reminds me! A very good friend of mine’s (mine’s?) real estate firm sent her and some of her fellow agents to attend a seminar headlined by Josh Altman in San Antonio. She said he was very motivational and gave them some great tips! She knows I am a fan, so she couldn’t wait to tell me!

  47. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Thanks for the warning. He’s on my turf. He better not have Carlton or Brandi with him!

    • VV™ says:

      Brandi is going to be on WWHL in Austin. She’s scheduled to appear.

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        Nooooooo! Out of all the talent visiting our fair city, he has to invite this skank to be on the show….really?! 😡

        • Orson says:

          This is an opportunity for you to get photos of her drunk ass being poured into a car by her handlers.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Jan I’ve been complaining about this for days now.

          PLEASE pay A-Ttention. Puhhhh leaze

        • SJNYC says:

          This makes me like Andy even less if possible, I can’t believe he is having tramp on again so early. Wow, I don’t think I have ever used tramp in a sentence – this will be my word of the day.

          • Jan (TexasTart) says:

            I understand! I don’t think I’ve typed “skank” before. Brandi is pushing us over the edge!

            • SJNYC says:

              Skank – I like that too! My husband is going to think I have lost it when I try to use my new words in conversation, it will be interesting working in skank and tramp into everyday conversation.

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

        Brandi is going to be on Monday night after the finale I think..she was in Texas last year too-drunk as a skunk on WWHL and drunk at her book signing- remember that? She blamed being drunk on not eating anything and have a few glasses of wine…

        • Jan (TexasTart) says:

          Seriously, A-listers already in town and he brings this trash. 😡 Oh no, Jill, she they did do this last year (not memorable and I forgot!)

          WHY does Bravo or Andy insist on this stream of classless TRASH.

          Why why why…

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

            She was there and I have to say people loved her! Everyone said how great she looked and how funny she was and how it was so great that she was in Texas with Andy! She even did little interviews on the street with people and it was a big hit with her fans. She was so drunk on the show but I think that she blamed it on her traveling and all her book signings-always ready with an excuse! Funny the difference a season makes….

            • Jan (TexasTart) says:

              I remember it all now, at the time I was not impressed….but similarly not in extreme dislike.

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

                I’m sure we will be equally not impressed Monday night-she will be a mess and cry about everything…and say how much she loves Lisa!

  48. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Lainey, did you hear Lady Gaga is doing a show at Stubbs BBQ? Pretty wild, considering it’s free concert in such a tiny venue. Not sure if you have to have a SXSW pass, but I heard that tickets were being disbursed free through Doritos…..way to go corporate sponsors.

  49. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Rebecca should make a road trip to Austin for the Game of Thrones museum (travelling museum is set up here for SXSW festival). IIRC she is a fan of the show and if I’m wrong, at least there are dragons in the displays!

  50. Pghemtchick says:

    A burn from the Germanhawtie. Maybe Brandi can bring Yo some ointment.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Burn, baby, burn. heh heh

    • chismosa™ says:

      This is good but I wish he didn’t use such sappy adjectives. Something better …. The pageant-talk clearly influences his speech.

      He needs to shut her down but more subtley.

    • SJNYC says:

      I keep liking this dude more and more which means he should run away from RHOBH as quickly as possible.

  51. Jan (TexasTart) says:

  52. Jan (TexasTart) says:

  53. Leslie (SCGirl) says:

    After watching clips of Mondays RHOBH episode tonight, it ‘s making me wish someone would start a blog called “I Hate Yolanda Foster”! I never thought it would be possible to dislike someone as much as I disliked Jill Zarin, but Yolanda just might have Jill beat!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Me too …. Just the first 10-12 minutes and I couldn’t take her !

      Her outfit I loved.
      She’s a white-orange witch 🌈🌈

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      I think she would have Jillz beaten… IHYF 😉 Watched the first look as well and I am wondering WTF is the need of these women to ‘Have a conversation’? That has become the new buzz phrase in the last couple weeks and I’m already sick (and tired) of it.

    • SJNYC says:

      Sign me up for that blog! I can’t stand that judgemental witch (ok I can’t stand most of them now). I don’t like stupid nod she isn’t too bright. What is worse is when a stupid person thinks they are smart, my brother-in-law is like this – very annoying

  54. Pghemtchick says:

    Still no official news on the plane >.<
    I wish the media would stop taking photos of grief and panic stricken family members- not cool news.

    So on a positive note:


    • SJNYC says:

      Baby goats cute, adult goats kind of freak me out a little. That is sad about the plane.

      • SJNYC says:

        Did you see that they have found oil slicks on the china sea between Malaysia and Vietnam?

        • Pghemtchick says:

          I did.. I’m cations to believe it tho. It doesn’t look like it came from the state media and wouldn’t it be hard to spot oil at 10pm? I guess from a well lit ship maybe. I’m still hoping Flight Aware’s track is right and they went down in Malaysia, but if Vietnam picked up the radar they were over sea. A meteorologist/pilot suggested last night that even if they had dual engine failure they could have glided 120 miles before crashing. That might explain the lost radar over land and then into the sea. I don’t know, I don’t fly. I refuse -thank you watching Challenger explode as a toddler.

          I guess this hits me hard because when I was 7 my brother was 16ish. He flew to Florida solo to spend time with his family there. His return flight was due into Pittsburgh. We were all there waiting for him when the board went delayed. The airline took forever to tell us why. The plane ran out of fuel “allegedly”. So they didn’t know where they were landing. Hours went by, we had everyone on standby. My aunt and one cousin were at JFK waiting, my other cousin and his wife were at Lagurdia. Mom, dad, my sister, and myself were at Pittsburgh ready to drive to Ohio to get him. Everyone was freaking out. The air craft diverted to Totonto! Didnt have fuel to land at all those above mentioned closer airports…. That’s why I say allegedly. Anyways, he spent the night alone in Canada in a hotel room and safely made it home the next day. Mom was livid. Everyone was really, but relieved. This is why I’m all about hope and hate all the negative speculation via these “experts”. Always hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst-that’s a motto I love.

          • SJNYC says:

            Sorry this has hit you so hard and an amazing personal story. You have a good heart and I hope your optimism is rewarded.

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

            Wait..the plane ran out a fuel and flew all the way to Toronto? From Florida? I’m confused! I NEED you to explain this! I would have been freaked the F out if I were your mom!

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

              (I know the point of the story was more than his flight-but I’m curious about his story!)

            • Pghemtchick says:

              I don’t think it was officially out just a low indicator. I think Toronto is only like an hour-1.5 hour flight.

          • Pghemtchick says:

            Okay so I guess I can remove allegedly. Lol. I just ran that memory past mom. Apparently, the reason for bypassing all the airports was they couldn’t get clearance to land. everywhere was closed to incoming flights due to snow. The family did mobilize there just in case they were able to clear a runway to get the plane on the ground.

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

              Oh I get it-they couldn’t land anywhere because no runway room? I guess that makes sense! Your poor mom!! At least your brother was a little older-but I would still be out of my mind with worry!!

              • Pghemtchick says:

                Yep. It was a crazy night. Bro got off the plane carrying souvenirs and laughing. Mom could have strangled him-prolly the tightest hug of his life lol.

    • ladebra says:

      Totes love this!

  55. ladebra says:

    Hmm, I’m going to be redundant, I love this too!

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

    Brandi last year in Texas with Andy..SXSW-WWHL
    I’m sure we can expect her to behave exactly the same as she did last year-drunky and nasty!!

    • Anne says:

      I don’t think I will be able to watch, because I have little tolerance for her antics and I’m sure that I will be totally disgusted after the ROBH finale. However, if I do watch, I’m going to spend my time deciding whether Brandi is going to look more like Kim Novak or Priscilla Presley by the time she turns 50. (Both ladies are substantially older than 50, but time and plastic surgery/fillers have not been kind to their looks.)

      • ladebra says:

        rofl! Every picture is a cautionary tale!

      • Powell says:

        Well I’m a Kim Novak fan for sure and I’m not being mean about her but Kim is a recovering alcoholic. So w/plastic surgery and alcohol I’d say Brandi has that covered. So in conclusion Kim appearance is what Brandi has to look forward to if she keeps doing what she’s doing.

        • Anne says:

          I’m a Kim Novak fan too, Powell. She was an amazing actress and I know that she is in recovery and also has had a tough life. I was sad to see her at the Oscars, but when I saw her face, I thought — that will be what Brandi Glanville and some of these other housewives will look like in a few years, because of the botox and fillers that they use.

  57. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I hope you’re feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed. I’m feeling pretty good after mostly sleeping yesterday. Now let me read what crazy comments LynnFam has in store for me. Have a great day. 😀

    • SJNYC says:

      Glad you are feeling better, nice here in NYC – going to make myself go out for a walk to help detox from HW a bit.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Glad to hear you’ve bounced back Powell! I’m off to conquer my list!
      Wishing everyone a good day! 😀

  58. mrs peabody says:

    I think until the BH housewives are over we should temporarily rename this site I HATE YOLANDA. She will be only the 2nd housewife ever to hold that title. Then at the end we can have a poll question “who is the most hated housewife of all times? Jill or Yolanda? Oh yea and someone should twitter Yolo and ask her if she knows there is a site called I HATE YOLANDA. Then when we run the poll we can have someone twitter both them, would not want Jill to miss out on a poll question about her.

    • Powell says:

      mrs p in my book no one else holds that title but Jill Zarin. Yo is pissing is all off and she can be gone next season but JZ still holds the award for most hated, I don’t like that word when speaking about her , but that’s her award alone.

    • SJNYC says:

      Works for me, but I hate Bonzo Botox Brandi otherwise known as the tramp just as much and Kim too. See that is the problem with BH there are too many to hate where we could focus all energy on JillZ back then.

  59. Leslie (SCGirl) says:

    Anybody know if Yolanda is catching any heat on twitter yet for her awful nasty behavior? I sure hope people are letting her have it! I haven’t had a chance to look at her TL on twitter, but was hoping someone here in Lynnfam had. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!
