Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Reunion – New York Cast Blogs

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills S4E20 Reunion

by BB

RHOBH S4E20_2If anyone tuned into Part 1 of this reunion show hoping to see these women clear up misunderstandings, set the record straight about what happened during the season, or resolve their differences, then you were disappointed. But of course, we all know that’s not Bravo’s intention with these reunions. Bravo is all about the ratings. Let’s not kid ourselves. The viewers who tune in for the drama and conflict of these shows are watching this reunion expecting more of the same. They want to watch their favorites get their barbs and jabs in and their not-so-favorites make themselves look even worse, depending on whose “team” you’re on. What happened to the pleasure of watching these women running their own businesses, participating in and hosting charity events, seeing their fabulous homes and closets, and having great parties and vacations where there are no knock down, drag out fights? I mean, I never minded the occasional disagreement and tiff among these so-called friends, but now you have a group of women who are trying to be the most popular both on and outside of the show and who pick their allies among the others based on how they think they can use them to achieve this goal, mainly by taking down the competition. It’s rather ugly. It’s happened on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and, even though I’m not watching New York, it’s happening there also. I am over “teams” and “sides.” This is not my world.

So to be as succinct as possible, this is how the RHOBH Reunion Part 1 went down by only watching it once as it aired. Those of you who watched can fill in the blanks with anything I might have missed. Here goes:

Lisa and Brandi get into it about their relationship and don’t really clarify or resolve anything except that they both say things as a joke that the other one doesn’t always like, but lets it go anyway. The only problem is Brandi took Lisa’s jokes and threw her under the bus with them, and Lisa didn’t do the same to Brandi. The only thing they agree about is that they don’t have the same personality. Nothing resolved here.

Yolanda’s (who looks like she’s in mourning with the black arm bands) only problem is with Lisa not being a real friend; not going to see her when she was battling Lyme disease; not going to her most important painting party, blah, blah, blah. Lisa just pretty much sighs. She knows she’s not going to win this one and she’s not going to even try to defend herself for such minor infractions. Not worth it, is it Lisa? Nothing resolved.

They talk about Kim this season and show flashbacks of every ridiculous thing she’s done and said. Kim thinks Kim is so adorable. Kim says this is the real Kim this season. Oh my. Of course, they have to ping Lisa for saying something about Kim praying by the garbage can. Nothing more interesting to say about Kim, other than Kim thinks Bravo saved her life. Is this Kim’s way of guilt-tripping Bravo into not firing her? Nothing to resolve. Kim needs to go.

RHOBH S4E20_1Joyce is next. Flashbacks to Joyce not being afraid to speak up to the veterans and Brandi doing just about everything she can to annoy Joyce. Brandi and Joyce go at it trading barbs back and forth about husbands and boyfriends and tampons and skater dresses and other high school girl nonsense. Then Joyce and Carlton get into it about talking about husbands’ body parts. Nothing resolved here.

Andy talks about the Dream Team of Yolanda, Lisa and Brandi. Flashbacks of the dinner party with the hearts on the name tags and talking and laughing about Kyle and Mauricio over lunch. Then it shows how the Lisa and Brandi relationship seems to have disintegrated over the season, mainly because of Yolanda and Brandi’s genius plan of sticking it to Lisa. I use the term genius sarcastically. Theirs was the dumbest plan ever concocted in Real Housewives franchise history. Yolanda describes it as real life dynamics. Brandi describes it as looking up to Yolanda and Lisa, but that Lisa is different in front of the camera, whereas Yolanda is consistent on and off camera. Kyle felt like it was an alliance, Brands says it was a camaraderie. Lisa apologizes to Kyle for saying what she said about Mauricio being your friend to sell houses at the lunch with Yolanda and Brandi. At least someone has apologized for something. Of course, it was Lisa who, in my opinion, has more class than Yolanda, Kyle, Kim and Brandi combined.

RHOBH S4E20_3Even Andy seems to be ganging up on Lisa by asking her if she can take it as well as she can dish it out. Wow. This gives each one of them another chance to tell Lisa what they think of her. How nice of Andy. Lisa apologizes to Yolanda for not supporting her through her sickness like she felt she should have been supported. Two apologies from Lisa so far. No apologies from any of the others that I can recall.

Kristen “The Actual Real Housewife”

Hi! OK first off this is my first blog post ever — so cut me some slack!

You must have been really excited to blog 4 days before the episode airs

Anyhoo, here we go. Be nice! I am the new girl, the actual Real Housewife. I am not a princess or a Countess, or a rich divorcee, or a fashion designer, a writer, or an entrepreneur. I am actually just me; sweet, little Kristen from Connecticut, the lucky girl that fell into modeling and met Prince Charming and is now living happily ever after in Tribeca — until I met all these crazy ladies. . .

I’ll be inclined to like you as long as you don’t do anything Brandi-like.  Just do the opposite of what she does on Beverly Hills then you’re all set.

The tagline. . .OK people. I am a funny girl, at least I like to think so. I don’t like to take myself too seriously. LIFE IS TOO SHORT! It’s a joke between Josh and I. I will do something dumb, usually related to spelling, and I will say I am not the sharpest tool in the shed, etc. Let’s not take this so seriously. IT’S FUNNY. I am not the sharpest tool in the shed — but I am not the dullest either.

You forgot to mention the crappy grammar in addition to the spelling.  But most people write the way they speak so it will be very Faulkner-eque.    I think your tagline would have been better if you said, “I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed but I am not the dullest either.”  It is more New York.

A bit about me: I have two kids and a hubby, and have been married for almost 10 years. Besides scooping ice cream in high school, I’ve only ever modeled. I still model and did through both pregnancies. I am obsessed with Elvis (will tell you more later, he pops up a bunch this Season). I am from Farmington, CT. My parents are still happily ever after. My younger bro lives in CT and has beautiful twin boys. (Karma’s a bitch.) Key West is my home away from home, always has been, always will be. Tweet me with more questions @kristentaekman. 

Carole’s  photo shoot: Listen I have been on a million photo shoots. I think that with Carole being nervous and admitting that she hates having her picture taken, it’s great that Heather was giving direction. That’s what Heather does for a living. She’s good at it. Holla that. #BOSS.

Please, not another person that says “Holla.”

Sidenote: So funny. Carole told me about the photoshoot and how crazy the German photographer was. We were sitting at a cafe in SoHo and, hand-to-God, guess who walked in — the German photographer. Talk about irony. She was a bit scary!

It’s hard for me to relate to Ramona’s sadness to Avery leaving for school. I seem to be sooooo far away from that. Hello, next on my list is potty training. I am at the point where if the kids were gone for a few days it would be heaven. Mommy could sleep. You know? I am sure this is an “I told you so” situation.

I am listening to all of this Aviva talk from all the woman while trying to stay neutral. I only just met her. She seemed really sweet and nice??? I was thinking what the hell happened in St. Barths? (I really didn’t remember. I watched Season 5 for Heather because she is a friend the same way I watch #RHOBH for Brandi — but the last season was so long ago. . .I really did not remember most of it!) It’s not one person who has issues with her — most of the girls have something to say. I am taking it all in, but I really need to form my own opinions/relationship with her. People do change right?

How the hell could you have watched last season and not remembered the Aviva monster?  Maybe Kristen is one of those people that watch the show picturing herself on it instead of paying attention to what is going on. 

I met her at the party and we talked for a few minutes. That’s kind of it. She seems really nice and sweet. We have the kids in common. I am really at this point thinking we are going to be besties. I am going to change her and prove everyone wrong! (Wait ’til you see Episode 2 LOL!) I think its bizarre how Aviva hasn’t seen Carole in ages and launches right into the book and asks for help. Did you all hear that? Rewind. Play it again — Aviva asks Carole for HELP and ADVICE right, right? OK just saying. . .

Aviva is used to asking and getting what she wants or there will be hell to pay.  I doubt you can change someone like her.  You back away slowly instead.

Harry — Both Josh and I have gotten to know Harry really well and we actually see him from time to time. Love him. He is so fun and witty, and after getting to know him a bit I can see the sex appeal. Before meeting him I remember thinking, “Who the hell is this guy that f—ed half of #RHONY? And what’s he got going on?” I met him and thought, “This is HARRY?” I don’t get it. Maybe because it’s I am much younger, don’t live uptown, or because I have Josh. But the point is, getting to know him, I get it. I see it. Go Harry! Wait, Harry who you say? Harry, you know Harry. Avivas ex/baby daddy and Sonja’s lover/ boyfriend. . .and Lulu’s well. . .you know how that goes.

Please don’t “eff” Harry.

It was awesome that Heather used me for her Yummie brand shoot. Her stuff is amazing!!! After I had Cash, she sent me a bunch of Mommy Helper tops and leggings. Amazing stuff. Her leggings are the only ones I will wear. They look great and keep your butt tight, no jiggle. Good stuff. Heather has hired me a few times before for Yummie. First time she booked me from my modeling card as Kristen Carroll not knowing I was Josh’s wife. How funny! The last time I worked with her I was six weeks pregnant with Kingsley, sick as a dog. I felt bad because later she said she couldn’t use the photos. Then there was that time when she had me naked (well nearly naked) in Times Square — ask her about it!

I like getting free stuff too.

Most of her blog consists of describing her and her husband tag team situation and the convenience of having an awesome nanny to take care of the kids while she is out getting a manicure or having a meal with friends.

She wants us to know for the Twitterers “when I hashtag #supermommy, I mean “Damn I just kicked butt and had the most amazing mommy day” — i.e. taking two kids by myself to the American Museum of Natural History in the double stroller on the subway ALL the way uptown. And when I hash tag #mommyreality, I am generally mean that I just got puked on, or had to deal with the worst tantrum, or my kid got up at 4:30 am wide awake.”  In case you were wondering.

The Jennifer Miller earrings are amazing! Very, very sweet. We have many jokes and one is the blow job joke. You will hear it a lot. . .Sorry. After being together so long, when your husband gives you diamond earrings isn’t that code that you have to give him a BJ? TMI, I know. Sorry. I am me — take it or leave it Josh really is a wonderful and supportive husband. He works really hard to support us and is really hands on. He always wakes up with the kids during the week, takes Cash to school when I need him to, comes home when I need help, and holds the kids down on the weekends. He would even get up in the middle of the night when they kids were little. #Superdad. We will work on date nights. He will work on being on time. Noted.

I hear a nasally voice coming from a redhead somewhere in New York yelling, “Baawwwbbyyyy!  The new girl stole my blowjob line.  That’s my joke.  And they probably weren’t even real diamonds.”

Next paragraph she talks about Elvis and how much she loves him in every decade and phase of his life.  She wears a TCB necklace that Elvis gave to his entourage that stands for “Taking Care of Business in a Flash.” The flash is the lightening bolt. He gave gold necklaces to all of his Memphis Mafia (entourage). He also created a special necklace for the women — “TLC in a flash” or “Tender Loving Care.” This chain went to all the Memphis Mafia wives and to Priscilla. I get it.  She loves Elvis and we see Elvis in the previews.

The tea party at Sonja’s: Let me start by saying I LOVE tea. That’s all I drink, all day long. There was no tea at this party. My dress, love, love, love that dress! H&M!!! OK, so let’s get right in and talk about that yoga chick? WE had on the same dress. She said to me, oh look we are wearing the same dress. I said back, “Bet yours isn’t from H&M?” She meant well, but yoga just is not my cup of “tea” and neither is all that spiritual bulls— talk. She hasn’t ever even met Aviva. It’s not her place to comment. Ugh, didn’t you all just roll your eyes over and over as she spoke? That’s why I said I am just going to sit here and drink! Before I met this group of women, I could count on one hand how many times I had been to the Upper East Side. NYC is really an uptown and downtown thing, and I am definitely downtown.

That yoga chick has been on the show before at a party with Aviva last season.  She also co-hosted Ramona’s charity event in her penthouse apartment that George got kicked out of.  I think she was just trying to keep Ramona relaxed and calm.

Sonja and Ramona have this crazy relationship. They bicker, fight, joke, tease — and fight. It’s exhausting and GOOD LUCK trying to get a word in. I just gave up and drank my rosé. Did anyone else notice that I was the youngest in the room by almost 20 years? It was a bit more Golden Girls than Sex and the City. But it’s all good. Sonja is FAB. “Thank you for being a friend.” (I felt like I ended up humming that tune quite a bit this past summer. “travel down the road and back again.” I used to love that show.)

I’m sure they appreciate the Golden Girls comparison.  Sonja is definitely Blanche Devereaux.

Lingerie shopping with Sonja: I have to say Sonja totally took me under her wing and was very sweet from the moment I met her — showing me all her tricks. I really appreciated that. Don’t ask me where this came from, but she decided that my boobs needed some help (as I did by eventually — which is probably why I got them redone). I am open, and take it all with a grain of salt. So we met at her fave lingerie shop, and she got me into some new push-up, non-nude bras. Listen I was always taught to respect my older wiser elders, so I obliged and took her advice. Boob advice I can take from Sonja. Marriage advice? Hmmmmm? Last time I checked I was the one who was still married even with out the push-up bra. #justsaying

Throwing shade at Sonja already.  Let’s hope your marriage survives the reality tv couples curse.

To Sonja, Age is Just a Number

We decided to have fun with the taglines for this season. If you have good sense of humor, you picked up on that immediately! They are very tongue in cheek and they did get a lot of attention on the social media.

Tongue in cheek? We already knew you went commando.  Kelley found out firsthand.

Here comes Heather. . .Holla! She admits she can be bossy and you know sometimes you need a strong friend in your corner. She’s been there for me. Carole grateful for the support during her photoshoot because she hates them! Heather reminds me of Ramona a bit when she tells other people in their fields how to do their profession. They both mean well. The photographer says, “No photographic advice!” LOL. Great television watching.

That German photographer looked so fed up with Heather I thought she was going to lift her up and dump her in the corner.

How funny is my new Ramona hairdo?!? Ramona is very upset about Avery going off to college. We really did talk about it and we did commiserate about the experience, but you didn’t see the entire conversation. Believe it or not, it actually got even more Ramotional, which is why I reacted the way I did!

You both are beginning to look like twins.  Who are these gay dudes that are giving on-the-fly makeovers to strange women in Palm Beach?

I don’t want people to judge Ben before they meet him. Age is just a number to me. He’s wise beyond his years! Plus, I really enjoy spending time with him, my daughter likes him. That’s not easy to find!

He’s cute too.

Ben is an old spirit. He’s worldly and fits in with my jet setting group. My friends in Europe don’t ask his age! I think Ben is a little apprehensive with this NY group though. Do you blame him? I just want to cozy up in the corner with him and the girls are dishing on his age and Carole is bristling about how Aviva treated people in the past.

I thought that Carole and Aviva were best buddies? Aviva wants to sidle up to the Ramona monster that she just recently saw too well, which I don’t recommend. It’s the first party of the summer social season and everyone has so much to say about each other already. It’s so awkward!

Aviva needs to have people film with her.  Carole got scared off last season.

Sitting between Ramona and Kristen is not easy because when Ramona meets someone she hits them like a ton of bricks. She just puts it all out there. If Kristen thinks that she’s going to be the mediator between Ramona and Aviva, she’s got another thing to learn. Aviva must be dreaming if she really thinks she can make up with Ramona with just a hug. Aviva, are you really going to tell Ramona she has some years on you on top of everything else? That came out really awkward. I think Aviva gets really nervous and just blurts things out.

Aviva desperately wants to be a part of this show.  I read she has rented and moved into a townhouse because her coop board would not allow filming in their building.   At least she has the wherewithal to realize she needs to kiss a considerable amount of ass to get someone like Ramona to film with her.  I guess she figures if Ramona can let her walls down then the others will follow suite.

It’s as if Aviva isn’t inputting and is using a script in her head she rehearsed. Even after Ramona says she’s vicious and mean-spirited, Aviva comes back to her saying, “Let’s celebrate our differences!” I don’t think Ramona wants to celebrate those differences!

You can never predict what Ramona is going to say.  Aviva definitely had a script in her head and wasn’t reacting to Ramona’s words.

Kristen is a breath of fresh air and as Ben says, a knockout. And as Carole says, Kristen is a weirdo! She wears an Elvis necklace every single day. I like it. Great start. . .I love a weirdo.

Weirdoes are definitely not boring.

Josh’s gift to Kristen is very strained and seems to overcompensate for some weakness in their relationship. Kristen certainly says that and has been giving it to Josh all along. So I say we will have to see. No relationship is perfect. Don’t men always give us a gift for a reason?

Did you get a load of Josh’s ears?  They’re huge.  I recall you saying something about the sexual prowess of men with big ears.  And they were bald.  Josh may have been bald, who knows.  You can’t see plugs even with high def.

I loved taking Kristen to the lingerie store. I enjoy sharing secret places and tips. Not sure Kristen wants my advice though. Maybe she is laughing it off. But I did hear her give Josh a few jabs, and he is condescending to her. I hate to see women lose their personal power when they become wives and mothers. I’m all about empowering women. I know Kristen had a dream of having a card business and put that on hold. So we will have to learn more about her. Oh and, as you can see here, leopard as always is my neutral!

It doesn’t look like a good start.  Maybe his business is not doing well.  It seems like he puts his business before anything else.

Who you invite, where your heart is, the atmosphere, the food and drink are what matter. The fact that Ramona brings up the point that the plates are missing, or the rug was destroyed by the hurricane is just another matter. Why is she doing that? Sometimes she just likes to create drama for drama’s sake. We do have a lot of fun together bouncing off each other like sisters do. Ramona knows better then anyone that I have it together and keep it together despite all odds. I have so much to be grateful for. A beautiful child, home, family, and friends who support me.

When you see that you have kept a rug with a hole that you definitely can’t camouflage, it makes me wonder if you are still holding onto your old life.  Roll it up and put it away until you can find someone to repair it and get a new rug.  In the meantime if money is tight, go to Ikea in Brooklyn for some nice rugs.

We don’t have room for that A-Diva negativity in our lives. I’m able to forgive and forget, but Ramona won’t forget. I think holding that negativity in is like Buddha says, “Not forgiving is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

Allowing A-Diva into your lives may also allow negativity in too.  Let’s hope she gets a new target.

By the way, Ben was so sweet and had the food for our ladies tea delivered from Ready to Eat on Hudson Street downtown. That’s class! And. . .very mature!

I agree with Robin Cofer, our Swarmi priest girlfriend, who says, “Is not our character revealed when the chips are down?” “Judge not her personality, judge her soul.” I like that! As I clutch and twist my leopard napkin. I’m just happy Ramona finally decides to be open to the idea of breaking the stand off with Aviva. I can’t kick a dog when he’s down and everyone ended up against Aviva. She didn’t have one freind in her corner after her behavior in St Barth’s. I just don’t agree with that. A friend is a friend. Why are her own friends abandoning her?

Because she is crazy.  And Robin must be really rich.  Who the hell is Nettie?  I think they invited her so that Ramonja sounds sane.

I’m thrilled when I see Aviva offer tequila to Ramona. It breaks the ice because Ramona knows that Aviva never really drinks. So tequila is a major movement! Movement in the right direction. Now Ramona remembers what she first liked about Aviva. What can I say? They are both passionate people that can have some short fuses when you rub them the wrong way!

The next time Aviva explodes, she can scream “Ramona tried to turn me into an alcoholic.”

Aviva: Beware the Aviva Ogre

When Aviva — it’s me — finally appears on screen – more than a third into The Real Housewives of New York City premiere, I was expecting a gorgon, some hideous beast that breathes fire and scatters destruction wherever it looks. I mean, what else could it be? For about 20 minutes, we’d been hearing about the Aviva creature — and that’s after the prior season recap that is like a highlight reel of “Aviva’s Gone Wild — Bitch Edition.” Then we’re treated to four of my fellow Housewives trashing the Aviva daemon. And that’s not enough — they warn the newest member of our coven –Kristen, whom I haven’t even met — about the Aviva. I’m watching this episode on the edge of my seat, ready to be terrified. I’m thinking it’s going to be like that monster that pops out of the man’s chest in Alien. I grip Reid’s hand. I prepare to scream. I count the steps to the bathroom in case I have to vomit. Okay . . . let’s see the FrankenAvivastein.

I am actually glad Aviva got cast this season.  I think everyone deserves a chance to redeem themselves.  What they do with their chance is up to them.

And there she is! OK, there I am. I don’t look scary at all. In fact, I look really good in that lace flamingo pink top and elegant black pant (but then, the girl in The Exorcist didn’t look bad at first glance either). It’s the beginning of a new season. I’m looking forward to mending fences and having some fun with the girls.  I think Bonnie and Clyde had it better when they were ambushed. Clyde was killed by the first bullet, and Bonnie wasn’t far behind. The other 150 shots and shotgun blasts were just for fun.

Okay we get it. Poor Aviva.

Watching the episode, I now see the grimaces, eye rolls, and shudders as I approach. I hear Ramona quivering that as I entered she felt “this black cloud of smoke coming into the room.” (I didn’t see that on my TV; I think I need to get high def.) I flattered Carole about what a great writer she was and reached out to her to “help” me with my own book. Of course I didn’t really want her help; I just wanted to let her know how much I admired her writing. Her response? She just totally dissed me. What, did she think I was going to steal her favorite pronoun – “I” – from her? Oh, and my book — Leggy Blonde — was just published without, it must be said, any help from Carole.

I think Carole needs a secret decoder ring.  You asked for her help, you wanted to pick her brain, maybe have her do some editing and now you say you didn’t want it and just wanted to let her know how much you admired her writing.  Yeah that’s confusing.

Then I went to tackle Ramona. No, not tackle, I went to hug her. Ramona’s reaction was “Hug?. . .You’re lucky I’m not stabbing you with a knife.” It didn’t go all that well — unless your idea of a chat going well is being called “insincere, vicious, and mean spirited” in the first couple of minutes. And it went down from there. It was tough to hear — one might even call it, to use Ramona’s term, “mean spirited.” But it wasn’t insincere . . . and in that room, that kind of honesty, even if it’s brutal honesty, was refreshing. Ramona is up front. There isn’t the guile and plotting and gossipy back-stabbing that often seems to go with the “Housewife” territory. Ramona kicked the crap out of me. But I left thinking we could be friends. With Ramona, what you see is what you get. And I like that.

At least Mario wished you guys a nice time.

It took some campaigning to get Ramona to come out to dinner with me. And then it took a lot of wine and some shots for us to relax with each other. We’re not there yet, but to paraphrase Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, “Ramona, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”

So you tried to get Ramona smashed in order to get on her good side.  That’s really smart.

As the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City begins, I’m anticipating a period of realignment -– friends become enemies; enemies become friends; and frenemies become OMG! Hang on, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

I hear it is going to be you versus Carole, then you versus Heather.  Yeah, you are going to need friends and some Ramona Pinot Grigio.

Heather on the “Aviva Effect”

Welcome back! Now let’s get the party started!

Well, it has been quite a hiatus for us New York City Housewives. I hoped you all missed us as much as I have missed sharing my crazy and fun life with all of you.

I have been having withdrawals!  The last season’s reunion was aired October 2012 so it has been a while.

It has been almost two years since we were together but it really has gone by in a flash.  Yummie has kept me super busy (We’re launching bras in two weeks!), not to mention my most important role as mama and wife to my sweet family, Jax, Ella Rae, and my husband Jonathan. They are always the center of my universe.

There goes Heather pitching her brand.  Sell it baby!

I am really excited about this Season and I am sure you are going to be entertained!

Carole’s book is coming out and it’s time for the finishing touches including her author photo that goes inside the cover. Carole asked for me to help on the set of her shoot to make her feel more comfortable. Like most people who aren’t models, the process of a photo shoot can be daunting — and I’m more than happy to help out a friend. And thank God I showed up because the photographer was tough as nails! She did nothing to make Carole feel comfortable — she stood on that ladder and barked orders at her staff and Carole, so it is really kind of funny that I look like the bossy pants of the day! I know my way around a photoshoot and the photographer needed the help quite frankly. The two shots we ended up using were those I directed — thank you very much — but Carole hated the outfit so they didn’t make the cover. Not to worry — we will tweet them out for you to see!

I think there was room for only one OCD bossy pants. It would have interesting if the photographer got off her ladder and started chasing you around the room.

Aviva called me while I was chatting with Carole during hair and makeup and before I answered, I wanted Carole to see who it was. I had a strong feeling Aviva was really just not the right energy for Carole at that moment. Aviva’s not the right energy for a lot of the women, and I get it. I chalk it up to bad timing and ignore Aviva’s call. I have a party to throw later and all the ladies are coming. I know I am going to have to deal with the “Aviva effect” there and the bad blood she’s created with several of the ladies soon enough. So for now it’s best to keep it moving. . .and I can catch up with her later.

I would pretend Aviva doesn’t exist either.

I love any excuse to throw a fun party and I thought having the old crew from the Sean “Puffy” Combs days together would be a great way to introduce Josh Taekman and his wife Kristen, the newbie this Season, to the Housewives group. Josh and I worked together for a number of years under Puff and we’ve been friends for over 15 years. We also share a birthday so we decided to have a joint party celebrating our birthdays and as a throwback to the good ole Puffy days! We just don’t get to see enough of the friends we made while working together and the party was the perfect plan to do just that! I love Josh. He is one of the greatest guys you’ll ever know. He and I are very passionate about our businesses, our families, and our friendships. I really enjoy the relationships we are now building with each other’s spouses, as couples and as parents. Kristen is Josh’s wife and I have enjoyed building an organic relationship with her over the years and getting to know one another via Josh. Kristen has modeled for me at Yummie and when they moved back to the city from LA it gave us more of an opportunity to spend nights out as couples, share as young mothers do and Josh and Jon get on really well, too. There is a history between us and so there is a natural ease and trust that is unspoken. Kristen is a really great girl so I’m thrilled to get closer with her and introduce her to the girls at the party!

So Kristen gets introduced to the other housewives through you.  I wonder if that is how she got on the show or if it was the Brandi connection or both. 

I have not seen Aviva or Sonja for several months and so I am not sure where their relationship stands, but I know Aviva is still on the outs with Ramona. Ramona and I have continued to grow our friendship and spend some time getting to know each other better and I’m happy about that. And after meeting Sonja’s new young thang, I can figure out why I haven’t seen her in so many months!?!

I’m glad Sonja has a nice young stud to occupy her time despite all her troubles.  I remember reading Sonja was trying to avoid Aviva at parties after the season aired.  I wonder when that changed.

I was a little nervous about inviting Aviva because I know how she went on Ramona and Sonja and a personality like that just makes you trepidatious, but it’s a party and as long she doesn’t insult anyone maybe she can use it as a new stepping stone and an opportunity to redeem herself. Let’s hope so anyway, because upon her arrival. . .you could have cut the tension with a knife. It was more uncomfortable then I had anticipated.

You would have thought Aviva came in wielding a knife or a stiletto heel around with the looks you all shared.

But it looks like Aviva has brought some back up to the party! She has not only Reid in tow, but some woman named Amanda who is an image consultant, whatever that means, without asking me for a plus one or even introducing her to me when she arrived. But if Aviva feels she needs some help with her image, who am I to rain on that parade and maybe this girl is giving her the right advice. However, I’m not so sure because in classic Aviva form, the minute she got a second with Carole all she wanted was Carole’s help with this memoir she’s allegedly been writing — under a rock. Meanwhile, Aviva hasn’t seen or had any contact with Carole in months — does an image consultant also help with etiquette? 

Aviva would have been better served if she had come to the party with her psychiatrist.

Now Aviva decided to approach Ramona at the party by telling Ramona she has a couple years on her, (implying Ramona’s wisdom??), and asks if they can move forward, but Ramona reminds Aviva that it’s not about an apology, it’s about being a vicious and mean spirited person. Aviva brushes right over it and suggests they celebrate their differences, and as I walk by, I can feel the tension and decide to keep it moving. . .where is that image consultant when you need her? Or maybe Aviva is still making bad choices? We’ll have to see how this strategy works out for her.

She definitely said the wrong things but her strategy for trying to defuse and make friendly with Ramona is a good one.

On a positive note, I’m so happy to see how easily Kristen is getting on with the girls and I’m not surprised! If you can get past your own ego with Kristen’s good looks, there is a whole lot to love!

It’s good Ramona gave Aviva another shot after they meeting up for drinks, (no pun intended!), but I can tell you one thing for sure, that was not Aviva’s first shot of alcohol! I don’t know why she lied about that, but everyone does deserve a second chance. I do think it’s funny that the very thing Aviva insulted Ramona and Sonja so viscously about, is the very means she uses to get on Ramona’s good side and it seems to be working. Hey, as long as you agree with Aviva, she is pretty easy to get along with. . .and on the story goes!

Calling out the lie.  Heather is definitely not a friend of Aviva’s.  I take it the monster Aviva comes out when you disagree with her.

Luann: “Welcome Back My Friends!”

Welcome back my friends! I can’t believe it’s Season 6 of RHONY and I’m still here with you to celebrate another Premiere. Even though I’m not on the first couple of episodes, you’ll see me very soon. This Season is exciting with the addition of a new Housewife, new adventures (think roughing it with cowboys), and more of the Housewifely drama that you’ve come to know and love! Since we were last together, my life has gone through some changes, including sending my daughter off to a top art school and watching my son grow into a confident young man as he finishes up high school in the city. I hope you will join me here each week, as I share my insights into everything RHONY.

In the beginning of every season I am always optimistic that I will like Luann.  I found out this season she was demoted to friend of the housewives.  Maybe I will like her in this position.  I wondered if the reason she got demoted was because once again she really wasn’t showing what was really going on in her life.  I know at the end of filming her relationship with Jacques ended.  I guess it remains to be seen if we get a glimpse of what led up to the end of the relationship or if she will try to hide it from the cameras.  Most of her blog describes the scenes and the other ladies on the show which is redundant as we have already watched the show.  She doesn’t let out any hints or reveal anything new.

Carole Calls Aviva an “Askhole”

Dear Friends,

I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since I last wrote to you! It feels like just yesterday I was telling you about my cute boyfriend, my trip to London, my ill-fated St. Barth’s soiree. Remember how I was so happy to have finished my second book that I threw myself a party? Well, a lot has changed.

My hair, for instance — I went from brunette to blonde, then back to brunette again. I did bangs, then no bangs; layered, then long. I bought an iPhone then ditched it, went back to my Blackberry. Some of my relationships took turns, for better and worse. And guess what? After all that crazy work, I sold my book in an intense bidding war. Yes, Intense! War! Six publishers all bidding against each other. It was like speed dating, but better — they all wanted to pay me to get in bed! They flattered me and made promises: two-book deals, a movie, television show — pick me, pick me! They’d never read anything so moving, they said. They told me how brilliant I was, how they all loved my outfit and the way I turned a phrase. They hung on my every word, they thought me so smart. And pretty, too! If only dating was half as rewarding. Whatevs. I copied Woodward and Bernstein and followed the money. I picked the highest bidder. Flattery’s great, but I’m not stupid.

Smart move.  So you accepting the highest bid is why the book took so long to get published.  I saw the First Look and how Aviva heard it from another angle.  She claims that her publisher passed on Carole’s book because it needed too much work.  I guess this lays the groundwork for a whole lotta drama.

See? We have a lot to catch up on. I’ve missed you. Let’s break this new episode down.

Photo (don’t) Shoot (the messenger). . .
Yeah, the show. Did you watch? I always laugh at how Housewives react to each other in any new scene. We’re always “Oh my God, Hi!” like we haven’t seen each other in ten years. Heather walked into the photo shoot and you’d think I hadn’t seen her in six months the way I reacted, when actually, we see or speak to each other every day.

In the past two years, she’s gone from an acquaintance, to a Bravo friend, to a true real-life friend. I love when she’s around. She makes everything fun and easy. She always knows where the car is, she knows the maitre d’ at the hot new restaurant, she knows how to get a large piece of furniture through the window of a city apartment. (Thank you, Jonathan!) 

It is great to have a friend like that.

She also runs a huge company and gets s— done, which means I can slack off. AND, she laughs at my jokes — what’s not to love?

You might feel bad for Ingrid, the beleaguered photographer in this scene, but don’t. I’ve done a lot of photoshoots and while I’m not the best model, Ingrid was odd. I’ve used disposable cameras that had faster click action than Ingrid. I felt like I was posing for a still life. A bowl of fruit would have grown impatient. She screamed orders at me like a drill sergeant, Chin down! Chin up! Eyes up! Look here! Turn right! Face to the left, chin down, now look up! Do you know how hard it is to keep your chin down while you look up and to the side and then, smile!

Contrary to how the scene unfolds, Heather wasn’t in the way at all. We needed her. Heather has directed hundreds of photoshoots and worked with the best. I think Heather actually took the only photo I liked that day. (Shhh! Don’t tell Ingrid.)

Unlike my friendship with Heather, which developed organically both on and off the show, I hadn’t heard from Aviva since we filmed the reunion over a year earlier. I’m not saying I was unhappy about that. Um, I’m kind of not that into her (there, I said it!). But it’s all good because apparently she felt the same way. When I sold my novel the week after the reunion, I got calls from everyone on the show (including LuAnn and we didn’t exactly end on the best terms), except Aviva. Not even a fake “congrats” text from her assistant. And although both Heather and I were very happy for Aviva when she got a book deal, and I offered all of my support, plus contacts, she never picked up the phone once, or sent a text. Nothing. So when she called Heather in this scene, we were both happy to Decline the call. (I love “Declining.” It makes me want an iPhone, again.)

Is Aviva going to attack you for not contacting her?  It sucks to be the target of a miffed, very sensitive, self-absorbed person.

Sometimes the more you get to know someone, the less you like them. Aviva is nice and charming when you are going along with her agenda but as soon as you disagree with her, or don’t give her the support she feels entitled to (like a parade), she becomes a very mean girl. We have all experienced it. I’m her new target. Oh dear.

Heather says the same on her blog.

Ramonja is Back!
Did you see what I mean about the shock factor? Ramona is shocked to see Sonja although they’d probably just seen each other and they are in Sonja’s house after all, it’s nothing new. You look amazing. No, you do. No YOU do! I haven’t seen Sonja since last season but I have to say that I do like the “Ramona” on her. And apparently so do the boys!

My friendship with Ramona has grown. She has a large group of devoted friends, and I see why. Yes, sometimes she speaks out of line, sometimes she does the wrong thing, sometimes she starts screaming for no apparent reason. But she is authentic, and on a reality show there is a lot to be said for authenticity. Maybe we are the ultimate Odd Couple. Her Felix, to my Oscar. She responds to situations emotionally then follows up with logic. I respond logically with a delayed emotional reaction.

I like the shoot first, ask questions later Ramona too.  I like that Carole is also authentic that she questions first what is going on and why before she reacts.  I guess I like authenticity.

Speaking of emotional reactions. Why is Sonja suddenly talking about mental illness? Do you feel like you walked into the middle of a conversation.

One in 15 people are psychotic. It’s a sport, they find happy people and they enjoy coming in between their happiness.

Huh, what? Who are they talking about? I’m not taking any chances and will start avoiding groups of 15. I looked it up in the DSM-V. Not exactly the definition but not far from it either. Ramona sums it up: A sagist? Oops. . .a sadist. . .like I said, authentic.

I thought that was interesting but I was more fascinated by the gay guys in Palm Beach holding down women and giving them makeovers.

Happy Birthday Heather!
I’d like to keep a friendly distance from Aviva. She came to Heather’s birthday party with her image consultant so that was a good sign. She is very self-centered and there are times I don’t mind that — it saves me the trouble of talking about myself. I find me, as a subject, a bit boring.

I give Aviva advice when she asks, none of which she takes. My friends and I have a name for people like that, we call them “askholes.” You know, people who constantly ask for advice then always ignore it. Aviva just doesn’t seem genuine to me. It appears as though she’s flattering me but it’s always a build-up to “The Ask.” Yep, and there it is. . .Throw a little editing in there. . .? Um, okay. But I’m not an editor, I’m a writer. I suck at editing. I like words. Lots of them. I couldn’t edit a stop sign. I did give her some good advice about editing her manuscript but it was edited (no pun intended) out.

It seems the social circle you are a part of has their rules of etiquette and behavior.  One should not ask a person a favor if they intend to do what they want anyway.  I wonder if Aviva is hiring an image consultant but the money is flying out the door because she will eventually ignore her anyway.

Who cares. It’s boring to talk about publishing when we’d all much rather watch how it goes down with Ramona! Aviva seems to have perfected the art of insulting people she is trying to flatter. Ramona has a couple of years on her? Wow. Aviva has a thing about age. Hers. Mine. Everyone’s. Last season she was 44 and this season she is, for some reason, 40. She’s the Benjamin Button of Reality.

Model Mom
I first met Kristen, with Heather, at lunch one day in my neighborhood. She’s a downtown girl, like me. As beautiful as #modelmom is in real life she is f—ing gorgeous on camera. And that’s the difference between a pretty girl and a model.

I think she should write a book called, I Love My Kids But This Sucks. Then I will write the companion book, I Don’t Have Kids and That Sometimes Sucks, Too. Her husband, Josh, is genuinely funny. He forgot about his 18-month old daughter Kingsley, which cracks me up. Almost everything he says makes me laugh. These two are also very upfront and frank about their blowjobs which might make them my new favorite couple ever. Aren’t they cute together? Serious chemistry. I know you’re all wondering what she’d do for two pairs of earrings. Kristin loves Josh, yes, but she also loves Elvis, from beginning to end — from the sexy swivel hips to fat Vegas. She loves him in every form. She’s one cool gorgeous kook.

Sonja’s Lunch Special
Robin’s back! Do you remember her? She’s Sonja’s friend, the one who screamed, “I hate fake!” at the party where Ramona accused Heather of talking behind her back. Oh, the good old days.

Robin seems to have gone through a spiritual reawakening. Either that, or she’s been smoking some ganja. But she counsels Ramona on her situation with Aviva.

Nettie I’m not my negative thoughts. Nettie I’m not my thoughts. Nettie I’m not my personality. I’m not my job.

I’m so confused. Who’s Nettie? Sonja makes a good attempt to convince Ramona to mend the fences also. Aviva’s mother died from overdrinking. Her father is sexually inappropriate. The apple that dropped from that tree had problems way before she lost the leg. When Sonja puts it that way, well, hmm. . .

I’m wondering who Nettie is too.  Is that her spiritual guide?  Are we going to see Shirley Maclaine pop onto the screen?

The Shot Heard Around the World
Tequila. Okay. Aviva, Ramona. This isn’t the first shot, it won’t be anyone’s last, but Stay tuned, everyone. . .next week I scream! (It’s good.)

[Get The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating here!]

we’ve got a whole season — who’s counting.


Ramona Loves Kristen, Maybe Aviva

Dear all! I can’t believe we are finally back on air!!!!

It has been way too long and please complain to Andy about that so it does not happen again. LOL! I think the wait will be worth it for all of you viewers.

He’ll love you for that.  I’m sure he would adore getting complaints.

I could not believe the event would be a party that Aviva would be attending! I had not spoken to Aviva since the reunion. Yes, I would run into her at different events and parties. I’d nod my head, say a quick hello, and walk the other way.

When Heather told me Aviva would be attending I felt I had to grin and bear it. Never in a thousand years did I expect her to come over to me and start a conversation. Why was Aviva not getting that yes I accepted her apology — but I just could not accept her as a friend based upon traits in her character?

She had a single-minded mission to be your friend no matter the odds.

I adore Sonja and I kept looking at her hair realizing she got, as Oscar Blandi calls it, “The Ramona Cut.” I have been curling my hair most of this season, so unless it’s straight you don’t notice that Sonja and I have the exact same cut. Imitation is the sincerest flattery, and if anyone was to copy me let it be Sonja.

Sonja loves men and men love Sonja. Every age, every size, and every. . .! As long as Sonja is happy that is all that matters.

No mother is ever ready for their child to go off to college. It means I can no longer go to her room every night and every morning to kiss her. I can no longer cuddle up in her bed at any given moment. No longer will we chit chat every night as she gets ready to go out at while I help her pick an outfit. You become overwhelmed with a sense of loss. Yes I am happy for Avery, but sad for me. It’s all part of life and letting go. I find solace in the fact I raised a strong, moral, caring, sensitive, very bright, and personable young lady.

Avery is a lovely young lady.  You are very lucky.

When I first met Kristen, I was overwhelmed by her beauty. I could look at her for hours. Kristen also seems to have a sweet and calm disposition. I wanted to get to know her better and was hoping she would not disappoint me the way Aviva did when I befriended her.

I could not believe my ears when Sonja asked me to give Aviva a chance. Was she serious or kidding?!? Sonja was serious! It baffled me I must admit. I also felt a little hurt by Sonja. I felt Aviva had viciously attacked Sonja and I, and I really did not want to ever give her a break.

It makes you look better to let things go.  I felt that scene was preplanned to talk you into being friendly with Aviva.  I’m sure being on a show together you needed a reason to interact and needed to have a scene where you would let animosity.

I really did not want to meet with Aviva, but I felt pressure to. Aviva was now friendly with EVERYONE in our group except me. I felt for the peace of the group and for harmony among us all, I should at the very least cordial to her and give her a chance.

Aviva immediately sucked up to me. I have to admit Aviva can be manipulating. When she wants something she goes for it. She wanted my friendship back, and she can charm the pants off of anyone. When she said she would do shots I went into shock.

It will be hard to call you an alcoholic since she joined you for a drink.

I must say I forgot how fun Aviva can be when she wants to be. I walked away that night having more fun than I thought possible with her. I also realized well maybe we can be friends again?

I guess time will tell.

379 Responses to Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Reunion – New York Cast Blogs

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s hump day eve. No New snow falling but its cold. That reunion last night. I don’t have words really. Lisa didn’t call Yo & go to her finger painting and Lisa didn’t call Brandi. Lisa shuld have her head chopped off for that? These ladies need to be ashamed. And we have 2 more to see. Oh well. Have a great day.

    • sperraglia says:

      I checked comments this morning, but had the computer off during the reunion. Maybe it was editing but I felt several times that things ended suddenly without Lisa fully able to
      respond. I like Lisa but was glad that they certainly did not give her the saint Lisa edit last night as she did display some not so nice behavior this season. I did think the body language was interesting with Carlton and Lisa, Carlton several times looked very connected to Lisa. I just wished Lemons and the Tramp would STFU.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Hi Powell!!! Glad to hear there’s no snow, but sorry for the cold. Nice and shiny here today with temps in the 60s. I’m trying everything in my power to send some of this your way!

      I don’t know if my indigestion is from the corned beef and cabbage or the reunion from last night. All I can say for sure is that I still truly dislike Brandi, Yolanda, Kyle and Carlton; Kim is not able to be on the same level emotionally or mentally as the others; Joyce is a non-player; and Lisa will forever be the queen, she’s just too smart (regardless if you believe she’s playing a game or not, you cannot deny her intelligence).

      Happy Tuesday to all of you. Watching a rerun of a NY reunion with Kelly and that Cindy chick. My indigestion continues . . .

      • chismosa™ says:

        Husker I was happy my stomach didn’t get as upset as I thought I would be last night.

        I honestly thought it would be worse.

        Have a nice day, 60s is nice.

      • I respect smart – we get so few glimpses of it with housewives…

      • Powell says:

        Thanks for sending some of the that 60s weather my way Husker. And I’m sure your corned beef and cabbage is excellent but your indigestion was from the reunion. We sure did waste a lot of man hours this season on BH. Brandi and Yo’s reasons for being mad at Lisa were the lamest reasons I’ve ever heard. I guess they thought they’d just make it up as they went along. Just pitiful.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Good morning, Powell! Happy Hump Day eve to you too and stay warm. I will watch the reunion later today as I clean. I love how Bethenny said she wanted to comment about the reunion and Kyle tweeted to do it and Bethenny did but wasn’t mean to Lisa. Hahaa

    • laineylainey says:

      Good morning Powellypooh and everyone!!! It is humpday Eve. at work today, gorgeous day…sorry you’re so cold Powellypooh. Spring is right around the corner and soon we will be sizzling.

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

      Let’s make one point very, very clear…..

      Yolanda didn’t personally invite ANYONE to the finger painting party. (That’s how important it was.) Lisa said in her blog that she called the person who actually invited her and let her know she had to go to city hall.

      Yolanda can’t have it both ways.

  2. chismosa™ says:

    Hey JILL- by the way, “you ARE an effin bit€h!”

    Happy Tuesday
    💁

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

      Who wears “cream” to a wedding? What a social climber!!

      • chismosa™ says:

        Luann talking down to alex I CANT TAKE IT.

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

          This reunion was awful-Jill and Kelly were so rude to Alex and they came off as real idiots-I wish Alex was still on just to stick it to those two jerks!! Luann talks in circles and is worried only about her image-she has never been “real” on the show…she’s NY Lisa. They won’t show who they really are only who they want us to see them as-I don’t really care but it annoys me that when either gets called on not so nice behavior they never answer-Luann is more aggressive about it but they are both great at deflecting and never answering.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Now I have to think about that
            I feel like Lisa did actually stop to answer questions honestly yesterday. But I think she thinks most of the disagreements are hogwash. Kim, King-less, >>>> those she shouldn’t bother with.
            Kyle and Brandi are another story.

            Luann=======Lisa

            Huh. I’m thinking ……
            Lisa is not as dumb and not as condescending.
            Lisa seems innately classy to me (there’s that word ! Or, elegant) and not just bc she’s British because Carl is as well and looks dirty and just, gross!
            Lu just scrapes to appear that way.
            Lu’s a ho.

            I’m sure I’ll think of other things.

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

              I’m talking about how they both deflect-not about being “classy” or not. Neither one of them answer a question-Luann goes onto to something else and Lisa acts like nothing is a big deal-until it happens to her and then it’s a giant deal.

            • trudie says:

              It appeared to me that Lisa tried to answer questions but they kept talking over her.

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

                Yes-exactly how it is at every other reunion Bravo has shown us.

  3. chismosa™ says:

    Notice on this reunion the person Jill – (no not that Jill 👆) talks about “that effing B Alex—” the woman she’s gossiping to is the “minister” friend of Ramona’s.

    The one whose apartment also the George arm attack was last year.

    • Buttercream says:

      Was that a Ramona backed fund raiser where George crashed the party full of women? He was asked to leave and Carol escorted him out?

      • chismosa™ says:

        YES that’s it!

      • Orson says:

        Yes. I believe it was for a charity against men abusing women. There’s probably a better way to phrase that. Anyway, that was the charity function where George showed up with checks for the charity from Adiva and himself. And where he seriously grabbed and squeezed Ramona’s arm and wouldn’t let go. I mean, considering Yoyo’s reaction to Ken motioning that he was going to touch her, if George had done this to Yoyo, she’d probably have her arm in a cast.

  4. MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

    Brandi describes it as looking up to Yolanda and Lisa, but that Lisa is different in front of the camera, whereas Yolanda is consistent on and off camera.
    ^^^^^^^^
    So let me get this straight with Brandi… Lemondrop is consistently a bitch, on or off camera but Lisa is only one when the cameras aren’t there……Got it..

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

      I can’t effing believe that Yolanda complained that Lisa didn’t drive to Malibu to bring her a STARBUCKS when she was sick..

      Holy shit is this woman delusional.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Who on here believe that Yolanda was house-bound for 18 months? Doesn’t that mean she never left her house in all of that time? LIAR, LIAR, LIAR!!! Yolanda tells us that she only has 1/5 of her brain functioning, but she can remember everything that Lisa did or didn’t do in that time period? You’re crazy talking Yolo and no one is buying it. Unfortunately, I miss the Yolanda that I came to like last year, but really not so much this year.

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          She can’t even get the time straight.. She may have been ‘locked up’ but that was because her King didn’t want to let his BSC wife out of her cage.

        • chismosa™ says:

          VV probably has proven that wrong with pictures and tweets and instagram.

          LAME Yo. No one buys the lemons you sellin’ girl!

        • karrylyn says:

          I wonder, if Yolanda meant, she is missing 1/5th of her brain function, due to lyme disease? an easy mistake to make, under pressure I would imagine. I also miss Yolanda, pre lyme disease.

      • Buttercream says:

        Did you hear Lisa say to Lemon-up that she (Lisa) was there visiting her at the hospital everyday?

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

          No, she said she went twice and called her a lot.

          That’s not enough for Zaphod.

        • mrs peabody says:

          She was joking about that as Yolanda said she didn’t remember everything so she said I was there everyday.

  5. Good morning! “What happened to the pleasure of watching these women running their own businesses, participating in and hosting charity events, seeing their fabulous homes and closets, and having great parties and vacations where there are no knock down, drag out fights?” So true! I watched last night & kept wondering what happened to the fun in this show. It’s exhausting to watch the constant fighting, back-stabbing, & gossiping. I want to see some flashy clothes, huge houses & VIP events!

  6. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Good day everyone 😀
    Apologies to those of you that like to get an e-mail notice of a new blog. I had a devil of a time getting the blog to post this morning and somehow in the process it didn’t send the usual e-mails.

  7. VV™ says:

    Proof that Kyle Richard is really stupid. The issue was neve about Calabasas being nice or not dumb Kyle. The issue is that Lisa never lived there. I am almost certain that Kyle used Mauricio’s access from his Agency to look this up. That $9 story never rang true to me.

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

      No FatKyle, Calabasas is not about to have a Kyle Richards Day. No matter how much you try.

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

      If Kyle used Mauricio’s “access” for that info Brandi would have said so-it’s not about Kyle-it’s about Brandi and Lisa-this isn’t Kyle’s fight.

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

        Yes it is. If FatKyle wouldn’t have been gossiping about Lisa’s finances, this wouldn’t be a talking point, would it?

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

          So because Kyle repeated a story that Ken told this is her fight? No way. This is Brandi trying to push Lisa-it has nothing to do with Kyle-if it did Lisa would have tweeted about it with the million other tweets she had on the subject.

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

            Ken never said he filed for bankruptcy, nor did he say he lived in Calabasas.
            Kyle should NOT be gossiping about other people and then expect no backlash.

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

              So no one should ever discuss Lisa? How do you know she was gossiping? Sounded to me like she was repeating a story she heard from Ken-if that’s gossip then I guess everyone in the world is a gossip. Kyle said she didn’t say anything about bankruptcy-are we to believe her or the “truth cannon”…I’m going to go with Kyle on this one.

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

                LOL – talking about someone behind their back is gossip.

                “idle talk or rumor, especially about the personal or private affairs of others: “

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

                  Ok come on now-I know what gossip is but since we didn’t hear the conversation we don’t know if it’s was gossip or just conversation about a story Ken told-just because Kyle dared to say a word about VanderPump it doesn’t mean it was anything sinister and it doesn’t make it Kyle’s fight and doesn’t mean Kyle said Ken filed for anything.

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

                    Ken wasn’t there. What he supposedly said is heresay.

            • kit9 says:

              How do you know he never said it. Kyle said both in her FB blog and now on the reunion that Ken said that. And, Lisa didn’t refute it.

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

                Ken refuted it.

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

                  He refuted the bankruptcy -not that he said anything about Calabassas

    • What I understand of this is that Kyle prob said something shitty to Brandi like, You know, Lisa used to live in Calabasas! (like that means Lisa was in a ghetto…) Brandi only heard “Lisa lived in the valley” (I live in Northeast Ohio so I have no idea where these places are or what they are like, but I am assuming there is a Hollywood Hierarchy. Beverly Hills must be the top of the food chain. Below that is Hidden Hills and Calabasas and then below that is THE VALLEY…fill me in if there are other cities in between that I obviously don’t know, but this is a general pic in my mind). So, Brandi announces to everyone (all 3 listeners including our blogger here who listens so that we can have a blog about her!) that Lisa used to live in THE VALLEY!!! OMG! How tragic…and if that isn’t bad enough, she also filed bankruptcy! Where she gleaned that info, not sure yet! Maybe she paid $9 for access to that info too. I like when Lisa called her out and said “Just cause you say it doesn’t make it true!”

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

        “Just because you say it doesn’t make it true”…JZ line!!

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

        “Yes you did. I paid $9.99” – Brandi logic.

        I feel so bad for her kids having to grow up without reasoning, tact, class, consequence, etc.

        • trudie says:

          Can you imagine her helping them with their homework?

          • Buttercream says:

            yep …”Chica, what’s the total of the bill if you add coupons and the final sale reads $9.99″ …

        • Brandi says that she doesn’t like Lisa anymore, but she’s spending money trying to prove Lisa lied about something as inane as where she lived? I think the lady doth protest too much.

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

            And Yolanda is googling Ken’s birthday. Albeit the wrong “Ken Todd” but she could have asked Mohamed.

    • plainviewsue says:

      As stupid as that tweet was, Andy was just as stupid on WWHL last night. Repeat: THE ISSUE WAS NOT IF CALABASAS IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO LIVE. IT IS THE LIE THAT BRANDI TOLD THAT LISA LIVED THERE!!!

      Whew.

      • chismosa™ says:

        EXACTLY

        Just watched it. Unbelievable.

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

          Lisa should have just said that-“there is nothing wrong with living in Calabassas but Brandi lied about me living there”. She never said that and just kept saying SHE never lived there-it was weird.

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

            She DID. What show are you watching?

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

              Really? Lisa did not say there is nothing wrong with living there-she said she lived in bigger shit holes than Calabassas-what show did you watch?

              • plainviewsue says:

                Jill, Rebecca is right. Lisa did say that she never lived there. She also said there’s nothing wrong with living there or something to that affect. Easy to miss, cos they all talk over each other.

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

                  I Know she said she never lived there but when Andy asked what’s wrong with living there she didn’t answer-she went on to talk about living in worse shit holes..

    • kit9 says:

      Actually it is an issue. Lisa said she’d lived in “much bigger sh*tholes than Calabasas”. So, yeah, she’s kind of dissing Calabasas.

  8. VV™ says:

    This is what Bethenny said months ago on her show:

    “Now, it’s become a real cunning, machination strategy type deal and my understanding is Lisa Vanderpump is the matriarch of the machinations, of the moves, she’s moving the chess board. That’s my understanding from several people. Is that the case?”

    • chismosa™ says:

      AND NOW she’s changing her mind? STFU barf.

      Lame lame lame.

    • BB says:

      Even Bethenny can’t keep up with what she says. I’m surprised she’s even watching. Maybe Bravo has offered her Andy’s old job or something.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Something’s afoot I’m sure 👡

      • VV™ says:

        Something fishy going on. Bethenny was full board on the bashing Lisa train inviting Kim, Kyle and Brandi twice to her show. All thre TRASHED Lisa including the Host Bethenny who was very biased and helping the Jellys with the trashing.
        Why is Bethenny all that interest now on BH?

  9. mm in oc says:

    Brandi is truly grasping at straws. You best believe a friend is going to stop you from making an ass out of yourself on tv. She should be thanking Lisa.

    Yolanda using her lyme disease for every excuse, but she doesnt have a problem overarticulating her feelings talking over everyone.

    Not buying the story Kim’s telling. I only think she was lucid the last couple episodes of the show (and she wants a brownie badge for it). I flt sorry for kim season one snd now see her for the stunted, medicated and pathetic child she is.

    Glad joyce brought up tampongate. Best part of the night.

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

    Lisa loves Mohamed and his children and was not going to call out Yolanda’s stupidity and dishonesty because of them.

    Did anyone hear Yolanda say she only has 20% brain capacity? Can she never keep her story straight?

    • wait? I thought she said 5%??? OY! 6 months locked in house….12 months, 18 months, 2 years…does the Lyme disease effect her ability to do math??

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

        I will now only refer to Yolanda as Zaphod Beeblebrox.

        She’s obviously left her helmet at home during this reunion.

        Is everyone taking a shot when you hear the word “Lyme?”

      • trudie says:

        I thought she said 5% too.

      • Prince Ali says:

        She stopped going to school at a young age so she could model: must have not finished her math classes.

  11. chismosa™ says:

    I still have to read the recap but did anyone else think the way Andy talked to Kim, made it seem like this really was her swansong ??

    It just seemed very complete and all-encompassing and like, see you later bit@h!

    • I didn’t get that, it seemed like he was throwing her softballs to me. Oh, how I wish they would dump her, but I think she made a good move in saying that the show helped save her last night. May have been one of her only lucid moments, but she showed up and wants a paycheck.

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        I caught that too. Andy’s face was like, oh crap! Can’t fire her now.
        She’s boring as hell with her dog and I won’t comment about her sobriety, but will say she is such a bitch towards Lisa but so sweet with Brandi that claimed she was a meth head.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Sarah Jessica and ^^^^^—
          I think decisions are made about this and the “direction” they’re going to go in before the reunion. To be honest.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Kyle is going to get her’s next week when Carlton has a go at her. Can’t say I have a side in this fight – two losers.

  12. Great blog! First, Brandi is a hypocrite of the highest order. She will take Lisa to task on every joke or snide remark she ever made about Brandi but when Lisa does the same, Brandi becomes defensive! Brandi went back to her old reliable BULLY! She is a horrible beotch to Joyce. The snide remarks about Joyce’s dress were straight out of HS. I went to school with a girl of the same name (Brandy only with a y not an I) and she was just as much of a bully, too. Maybe it is just the name. The comment about the dress was WAY below the belt…and Brandi looked awful! She looked 10 years older with her ridiculous hair….and plastic face. Joyce is a STUNNING girl. Looks her age and I like her…she grew on me! Also the comments about her husband are pretty crappy, too. I think I checked them on celebritynetworth.com and that guy has some BANK! I think Carlton’s hubby is worth 150 million, (it says Carlton is worth 150 million, too, but that seems weird! I am thinking they are giving her the “combined net worth), Michael De oven is worth 50 million, Joyce is worth 10 million, Brandi is 1 million, Lisa is 65 million, Ken is 85 million, King David 30 million, Yolanda 45 million (wow, I am shocked but she must have gotten BIG money in the divorce!), Mauricio is 30 million Kyle is 30 million (not sure about this one!) and Kim is worth 1 million. I have to believe that Joyce made some money LONG before she was married, but marrying well did not hurt her! Also, maybe marrying a man that wasn’t a PLAYBOY helped with making sure her spouse would return home to his bed! Brandi CHOSE a man that was a PLAYBOY and then invited other women into her bedroom and was surprised when he was sleeping around? Uh uh! This reunion is just sad. None of these women are truly friends anymore off camera. I think Lisa telling Brandi to stop drinking was more about trying to keep her friend from embarrassing herself on camera. Lisa doesn’t have to make herself look better by pointing out your faults! Remember, when you hang out with garbage, you start to stink? Well, Lisa hung out with you LONG enough and has decided she cannot do it anymore. She has apologized for Brandi’s behavior long enough. Good for her! I have a feeling that the newfound “friendship” with Yolo will not last. Yolo will realize when she gets 10% of her brain function back, that Brandi has been using her for her free lemons and guac! Anyhoo, just my two cents! Can’t wait for next week!

    • T-Rex says:

      As far as VileKyle and Murray’s net worth, this was explained previously, the Net Worth is all UMANSKI money, not any Bitchard money. If VileKyle left Murray she would have only her BHills money, which I think she has spent, and SOME residual monies from her very short acting career, which we looked up and is less than 10K per year, that doesn’t even by groceries for a month in BHills, or really BelAir since she that’s where she actually lives.

      • This is California, she would get half of everything unless there is a prenup, which I doubt, plus they have been married longer than the magic number of 10 so she would be in great shape financially!

        • ladebra says:

          which is why there is no way Murray is going to leave her… nope, what’s mine is mine and you can’t have half.!

          • Why should he when he can ALLEGEDLY have his cake and eat it too!

          • I meant why should he divorce her, but I know you are smart enough to know that is what I meant….but I would also like to add that I think Kyle is one of those women that would look at divorce as a failure, which I don’t really understand that concept but anyway….she would never give him up!

  13. Thank you TT, Ramonacoaster and BB for the blog this morning. To me it is obvious that Yolanda is very jealous of LIsa. Lisa is smart. Owns several successful businesses. Lisa’s husband respects her and is by her side daily.
    Yolanda ex-husband even shows respect for Lisa.
    Yolanda is alone…a lot. She has nothing but time on her hands to spend her days master cleansing her body and telling her daughters how to live. She is fluff. Arm candy to King David. Yolanda can only wish she had LIsa’s life. Yes, I did post the same thing over on Q’s FB page so you are not seeing double 🙂

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

      I see Zaphod Beeblebrox as extremely selfish. Mohamed is HERS. King David is HERS. King David’s children with his exes are HERS.

      Is anyone else still confused why David’s daughter had her wedding at the home of her new stepmother’s ex-husband’s house? Instead of her own father’s house? Kind of tacky…. or “Hollywood.”

  14. I feel like I dropped 50 IQ points watching that crap. It’s all so stupid and petty. These girls need to grow up and shut the f**k up.

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

    Why is she coming here? Oh Lord if the Apprentice thing is true I JUST CANT!! How can she leave her kids for so long with that “crazy” Leann?? The same persons she doesn’t trust around her kids because she drinks and takes laxatives is now going to be with her kids more than she is? But Leann is crazy right? And unstable? I don’t understand!!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Kenya recently tweeted she’ll be in ny “soon”

      Take Brandi DOWN!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Janic- I have to find out her latinaness. I never even knew she was Latin.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Let me get this straight. Brandi tweeted that Jennifer & Adrienne are the first Latina HW’s last night, which was of course wrong. Now the haters are going after them, thanks to their BFF Brandi.

      Got it.

      I hate Brandi. I hate Yolanda. I hate Brandi. I hate Yolanda.

  16. laineylainey says:

    Hi BB – thanks for the recap as I did not watch the reunion. My favorite line: “Kim thinks Kim is adorable.” so funny, yet so true. Nothing sadder than watching a senior citizen using baby talk. Makes my skin crawl hearing women do this at any age,…but c’mon Kim…chyle PLEASE.

  17. laineylainey says:

    Ramona Coaster – I look forward to reading your blogs blogged. I hope to sneak it in soon, if not, will have to wait til i get home.

      Carole is a long-time friend of Andy. Aviva would be out before she would.

    • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

      In Jill’s dreams.

    • BB says:

      Jill is probably feeding Aviva this crap. I hear Jill has Aviva’s ear. No wonder nobody likes Aviva.

    • T-Rex says:

      Carole would only leave if SHE wanted to. Mz Andy spent a lot of time and many years trying to drag her onto the show. The Audience also is warming to Heather T, if anyone’s gone it’s the FauxLegDrescher since NO ONE likes her or her icky father. Oh and Aviva’s family I believe is also friends with THELunatiCZarin

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

    I’m still cracking up at Carlton saying she wanted to be the one who told her kids she makes out with women and Brandi saying something about her nanny…Carlton is not happy about Brandi’s remark…but I loved it! It was the second best part of the show-the first of course was Joyce talking about Brandi kissing an ugly guy with her tampons string flapping in the wind!!!

  20. Pghemtchick says:

    I’m watching this sh!tfest now, why are Brandi’s legs a different color than her face? Are those nylons/tights?

    Brandi constantly interrupting and talking over everyone. So annoying and childish. Her digs at Joyce’s husband were very low IMHO.

      Yes, she is childish. She’s ridiculous. She has no idea how stupid she sounds.

      And didn’t they take out “check-mate bitch?” I guess they didn’t want to make Brandi look any more stupid than she already did.

    • chismosa™ says:

      What? Where? When? Huh? Ugh? 👓

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Hello Jill! Maybe they’ll show more on the lost footage. Btw, Brandi just tweeted that Lisa could BBQ a baby and people would still love her. She’s a POS. period.

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

        I think it will be shown during lost footage…I wonder why the cut it out though? It was such a big part of the promo-and since as far as we have seen Brandi didn’t “check mate” anyone you would Bravo would show it b/c it makes Brandi look stupid…Bravo loves making people look stupid…some people don’t really need any help!!!

        • plainviewsue says:

          I agree Jill. I think this had to make the original cut. As well as the lunch Joyce had with Yolanda, when Yolanda went after Lisa.

          Is Bravo stupid enough to want to go along with taking down Lisa??? I don’t get it. Her blog has 100% positive posts.

          I hate Brandi.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Brandi’s blog is??????
            And she lost the poll on WWH.

            Bravo stop playing GAMES!!!! you suck!

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          I hope they show that and the lunch with Yo and Joyce. The checkmate bitch part, I can’t believe Brandi went after that with Yo to where Lisa was. Brandi truly is a sociopath.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Disgusting. I also remember in Palm Beach when drunk Brandi muttered to Kyle something to the effect of There’s so much I could say about you right now.

      I hate Brandi.

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

    I don’t think Joyce had to “stalk” Brandi to know about the tampon string…
    #joycedoesntgiveatuck

    • Mene Seela says:

      It would be considered stalking if Joyce paid $9.99 for the info …

    VV📣📣📣📣
    THIS WAS not that bad. You should WATCH it! Ughhhh 
    ——–
    BB thanks for the blog—-

    ➖➖➖I noticed the first question to Brandi was by a “Leann”. That was cute. 

    ➖➖➖Brandi’s mark on her right cheek was still so visible with caked on coverup ! That must be HUGE! It shows up only in places where she’s wearing a lot of makeup. She needs a new makeup artist. 
    I’m shocked how she can’t cover that $hit up. 
    ➖➖➖➖

    From BB:
    “Is this Kim’s way of guilt-tripping Bravo into not firing her? Nothing to resolve. Kim needs to go.”
    Sorry I should have read before commenting! I think Kim is grasping …. At turtles, straws, squirrels. 
    I hope she’s gone. 

    I have to say I still have to watch last year’s reunion – but Kyle seemed more striking to me with the demi Moore hair. She’s all curled up and wavy – it’s funny she did this first season Joyce is on, no?
    The color she has now is not that bad but I like her pin straight look. Funny. 

    • Mene Seela says:

      Kim “Waaaaiiiit don’t fire me! I’m saving lives with my sobriety!”

    • Constance says:

      Have to say, I am one of the viewers who likes having Kim on the show. She does make me laugh and I find her struggle with alcohol and her recovery inspirational.

      • NYC Mama says:

        Being an irresponsible dog owner, having your children be responsible for taking care of you (even after your supposed sobriety) and behaving like an azz is not at all inspirational.

        • IKR? There are AA meetings that have people with a lot of years and they don’t even let the newbies talk/share until they have had a year of sobriety (they can talk to their sponsor) …..no one wants to hear what they have to say because they know it is just the ramblings of an addled brain….Recovery is a process and takes a really long time….that’s why it’s called Recovering not Recovered.

        • Constance says:

          as opposed to continuing to drink? You’ve deliberately conflated my statements. I find ANY alcoholic who is sober inspirational.

          Kim’s behavior is typical for a long term alcoholic. Her children and family love and support her. Others seem to want to belittle her and treat her with condensation. I guess it’s the difference between forgiveness and condemnation.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Why did she get a PITBULL! Of all dogs ….. I just …can’t. I can’t.

        Te extraño!
        (Not sure if that’s correct way to say it)

        😩😢😔

        It honestly was not as bad as I thought it would be.
        The preview for next week with Kim attacking Lisa was re-DONK but …..

        Ugh…. And I don’t have you for ny.

    • T-Rex says:

      THE-LIAR-SUPREME-MORONSTFUBrandi needs to start laying off the METH(allegedly) she is going to start losing her teeth, which I believe was happening when she said her tongue was numb. She is probably having to have dental work done, i.e. the fake lisp that helps cover up her METH side effects. If I were ManCandy I would ask the courts for random drug testing. METH only stays in the system for about 48 hours, but does damage for years. By the end of the year if she keeps up with the level of drugs she is doing(allegedly) she is going to look around 50 years old, and have more skin problems and a head full of fake teeth, that will also fall out since once the gums are affected they won’t hold caps she will need dentures.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Wow I never thought that meth could be the skin issue !
        Good eye.

      Interesting she’s being nice to Stassi….they are looking for dirt on Lisa that’s why they are being nice to Stassi…

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

    This is sooooo friggen funny to me b/c I said something like this about Brandi last year-except I think I used “puppy” instead of “baby”

    • Constance says:

      And you would be correct. I’ve been thinking the same thing as I read the front page and comments offering excuse after excuse for Lisa’s nasty behavior. It was exactly the same last year for Brandi.

        Yep, Lisa just gets a pass for her bad behavior, her lying, her massive hypocrisy. Like it never happened.

        I hate Brandi.

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

    Ohhh taking a page from her ex besties book and telling peeps to STFU?? Come on now Lisa-don’t be a hater!!

    • But she didn’t use CAPS so it is a polite and ladylike sostfu!

      • Mene Seela says:

        LOL. Like sostfu is a little known British word for have a nice day.

        • It is like one of her “digs” said under her breath…

          • ladebra says:

            She’s just had it. I stop myself from saying STFU a million times a day … and Lisa seems to have had enough. Sort of inspirational, maybe I will let a STFU loose today… or maybe not.

            • OMG, if you do it, tape it, lol!!

              • ladebra says:

                I really am not looking forward to the day my impulse control fails me. I just hope it’s a really really good one! … I wonder if I can make it my ringtone for this guy at the office that calls me at home on the weekends 🙂 he wouldn’t be able to hear, and I’d be in a great mood talking to him… hmmm

            • trudie says:

              Did anyone else notice Lisa’s posture last night? She was sitting hunched over. She looked so resigned to the shi*tfest that was coming.

    • VV™ says:

      I posted this last night. That Julio guy was referring to the below Tweet from BravoTV. BravoTV tagged Lisa.

      Okay tweeps: We gotta ask this again: Did @LisaVanderpump have a #RealFaint or #FakeFaint? #RHOBH #RHOBHReunion

    • plainviewsue says:

      It’s just like Bravo going on and on and on regarding Teresa.

      It was interesting to me that Lisa mentioned that she has inner ear issues that cause her dizziness, which is what I have to deal with. But does she milk this like Yolanda?? No she doesn’t.

      I hate Brandi.

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

        She did milk it a little last night with that “touch and go” comment….that was a bit dramatic.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I agree Sue. JILL – she said it once. Maybe it was actually really serious but Lisa will not be one to bother everyone with her health troubles. I wouldn’t think she would?

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

          She said touch and go once? Once was enough!! She’s not on her death bed for crying out loud! Touch and go? Come on!!!

          • chismosa™ says:

            Yeah touch and go does mean death-ly in our vernacular. I wonder if she meant the condition …maybe a British lingo.
            I don’t know id have to look it up. It is a dramatic saying.

  31. Good afternoon everyone!

    Thank you BB and Ramonacoaster for the Blogs! Like them a thousand times!

    I could not stomach the entire Reunion… I was coming and going and having them on the back… Nauseating how Andy and the “ladies” behaved… The only LADY there was Queen Lisa! Long live the Queen!

    Did you see the picture someone posted last night with classy Brandi drinking from the vodka bottle in her undies? Destroyed RHOBH!

  32. chismosa™ says:

    Oh my GODDDDD

    Maria menounos’ laugh!!!! I can’t !!!!!!!

    I want to support her show and all but dear lord
    My EARS 👂👂👂

    • Powell says:

      Oh yes. That crazy laugh, but I’ve always liked her. She’s sooo cute. Like teenage girl cute. She was on Ellen and Wendy. Her parents were in the audience on Ellen and in the green room on Wendy. Her parents are also cute. Her mom just wants her to get married and have kids.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I’m going to support her because her parents remind me of my dad and they come from a similar area in Greece.

        Haven’t watched that Wendy yet but I will

  33. VV™ says:

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

      Andy asked Lisa 2 questions
      1-can you dish it out but not take it
      2-what’s so bad about living in Calabassas
      He was soooo not hard on her he barely spoke to her. He’s been much harder on other HWs, not necessarily from this franchise. I have seen him be way way harder on Teresa for sure and her husband. Unless he asks Lisa if she is lying about the magazine thing and why she flat out lied at last years reunion about not believing Kyle -I will never think he puts Lisa in the hot seat. Some people think he should bow to the Queen but I think he treats like he treats the other BH women-no worse no better.

      • Mene Seela says:

        He did keep asking her those two questions but he didn’t admonish the others that kept interrupting her so she couldn’t answer!

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

          But that’s not really being hard on her-he wasn’t hard on anyone…it was almost like he wasn’t even there

          • HuskerHuny says:

            Lisa NEVER DID SAY it was bad to live in Calabassas – she answered that she didn’t live there but may have owned property there at one time or another. But Andy and the others would not take that answer and they kept harping on it. It’s so difficult to answer any question without being interrupted or talked over. When asked if she could dish it out, but not take it, I saw Lisa give it some thought and try to answer, but once again, everyone talked over her – Andy and the other harpies. Did anyone really answer any question last night? I can’t remember.

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

              Amen

            • chismosa™ says:

              And then Andy continues the calabassas story on WWH !?!?

              Let it go Andy let it go ….

              ((Turn away and slam the door
              I don’t care
              what they’re going to say
              Let the storm rage on.
              The cold never bothered me anyway))

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

              Idk if anyone else answered anything but I don’t think Andy was hard on Lisa-at all. Lisa didn’t say that there was anything wrong with living there she just kept saying SHE never lived there-which maybe true but it didn’t answer the question-which was stupid-the question I mean. Andy asks dumb questions at every reunion to every HW-Lisa is a HW-she gets asked dumb questions-that’s the way Andy does things. I wish he asked her the question last year about why she kept insisting Brandi was being sued but that never come out of his mouth!!

              • In the same reunion referenced down below, Ramona reads Andy because he is being too hard on her and she doesn’t like it!!! Lisa brought up the Calabassas and bankruptcy, Kyle didn’t have any reaction on her face and when Brandi said, “Kyle” she didn’t look like she knew what Brandi was talking about and she is NOT that good of an actress.

              • Powell says:

                It’s just mind boggling that Brandi even said it on the stupid podcast. Just because Lisa joked, haha, that she needed a passport to travel to Brandi’s, Brandi turns it around that Lisa had the nerve to diss the valley cuz she lived in Calabasas. It’s juvenile. Then she says they filed for bankruptcy and what does Brandi do last night? Looks Kyle dead in the face “Kyle”. Kyle said she didn’t say that. Thru all of this Brandi is smiling, laughing. I just don’t get Brandi. Did she complete HS? She’s stunted intellectually. This crap and all her “Lisa’s not the same to me on camera as she is off camera” is just a bunch of crap. And cuz Lisa won’t fire Scheana Lisa’s not her friend. I’m sick to death of the Scheana crap. Brandi continues to show Scheana how much she continues to think about Scheana. And did you all get her saying she admires Lisa? Lisa is someone she looks to be like or aspire to? But Lisa is all of these bad things. I don’t know about you all but I don’t have any sort of admiration for people I don’t like. Brandi consistently talks out both sides of her face. Does she really believe what she’s said? I know I have a lot of questions but I’m just trying to understand this woman/child.

            • Editing seemed weird and it cut off without really resolving or at least that is how it looked to me – editing?

              • chismosa™ says:

                I caught editing fumbles with Yolanda in the first 5-10 minutes of the first look. So YEAH it’s a possibility!

          • Jill I miss the green vs yellow skinny talks even though the little girl is adorable miss the green.

      • VV™ says:

        You saw Bethenny’s tweet from last night. It seem to many that they were hard on Lisa…including Bethenny.

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

          Good for Bethenny-but didn’t I see up thread that something was fishy with this new found support? Anyway-I don’t care what Bethenny says-nobody was hard on Lisa last night-she got asked 2 questions-the first one was asked because she brought it up.

          • VV™ says:

            Well, when a big chunk of bloggers and tweets say they were hard on Lis, it’s hard to say they weren’t.
            That was was your impression and you’re entitled to your opinion. I think because you’re looking with the eyes of “dislike”. I can go to the blog that drinks purple Kool Aid and see they disagree BUT they too “dislike” Lisa.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Those are like my Teresa eyes. 👀

              I get you. Both!

              Purple blog purple blog.
              Starts with letter A ? 5 words????

              • VV™ says:

                Yes, it’s a blog dedicated to bashing Lisa 24/7. They are not very clever over there. Every word, mannerism or action taken by Lisa is dissected to prove how evil Lisa is. I only read to see the angle of attack. They claim to hate her but boy , oh boy, they can’t stop writing about her.

                • chismosa™ says:

                  Thanks –

                  Ps I saw Lisa started following about 4 more people. One seems to be a HWs twitter acct.

              • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

                That’s why I stopped posting regularly. The commenters were a little men’s and took things really personal.

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

              Well when you follow tweeters that love Lisa of course they are going to say he was hard on poor VanderPump-they are seeing with the eyes of “love” and enjoying the Lisa loving kool aid. But since I know what I personally saw on TV last night I’m pretty secure in my own opinion-not that of a kool aid drinking Lisa loving blog. I can see that blog that drinks Lisa kool aid disagree with me BUT they too “love” Lisa. To each their own I say-but I know what I saw with my own clear eyes-full of nothing but “whatever” about all the HWs.

              • VV™ says:

                Jill, you should know by now. I follow and read everybody.
                Action speak louder than words. You dislike Lisa. I cannot remember the last time you had anything positive to say about her.
                Eggmitted! 🐣🍳

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

                  I dislike THINGS about Lisa-some people love everything she does-no matter if it’s right or wrong. I don’t think there is a HW I could defend to that extent. Lisa lied all season long for Brandi last year and she lied right to Andy and Kyle at the reunion last year-she’s not perfect-she does shady things-lots of them. What bothers me is the fact that she acts like she’s just too damn busy being fabulous that she has no time for drama-that’s the biggest lie she tries to tell.
                  Just because I don’t think she’s perfect doesn’t mean I don’t like her-I just said how much I liked her in a post the other day-maybe you missed it ….what actions are speaking louder than words? Whose actions? Mine?

                  • VV™ says:

                    But, but Kyle lies. She lies a lot. She lies constantly and somehow you find excuses for her or ignore her lies.
                    #selectivehatinglies

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

                      Tell me a lie that Kyle has told that I excused or defended- I say stuff about Kyle all the time-when she’s wrong I say she’s wrong-in your mind the Queen does no wrong-even though it is plain to see that she lied for the most hated housewife in Bravo history.

                • kit9 says:

                  Lisa done nothing positive to warrant a compliment. The woman is liar and a hypocrite. She could barely get through a week without a lie or self pitying bs at the end of the season. Her blog last week was so completely fos and hypocrisy, I can’t believe she had the balls to write it.

        • VV™ says:

          BTW, Bethenny. It’s “laid”

  34. I have the NY reunion from last year on as I am working and I hear Carole say “I was awoken in the middle of the night by two male voices … one was LuAnn’s,” Still one of the funniest lines ever!!!

  35. chismosa™ says:

    RAMONACOASTER – thanks for the blog!
    I don’t remember kristen shopping for lingerie with Sonja ? This was last week? How did I forget this? Was this in mid-commercial or in a regular scene? 

    I think Aviva is kissing up to Ramona, blog wise. She’ll be all alone at the reunion. Yuck 
    Loved heather’s blog. She’s great. 

    What is with Aviva’s image consultant. Does this person tweet? I’m going to have to search for her. 

    Luann gets to blog???
    Do we know if she broke up with Jacques immediately after st Barth’s? 

    I thought Aviva said her father was not as gross as he is now sexually when her mom was alive. Am I wrong? I agree with Sonja’s assessment of the mother having to deal with this guy as her husband. But I could have sworn Aviva said otherwise. Then again she’s a sociopath IMO. 
    Does she have siblings ? I wonder. 

    Thanks for the blog! 💥

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

      Ramona is not stupid. She sees right through Aviva.

    • Eastbayca says:

      Luann and Jacques broke up Fall of 2013, long after St. Barth’s.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Wow and long after the season aired so he had seen that. Luann and her “Italian friends”

      THELUNATICZarin would only be invited back to RHNY if Mz Andy was long gone from Bravo and the franchise! HE is still PISSED OFF that she A) used his name without permission to get into interviews and B) she illegally taped the last WWHL show she was on, which is a HUGE no no and C) she is STILL leaking bad information to the press and most of it’s wrong. Mz Andy is still hatin’ on the THELUNATICZarin and has said numerous times that she WILL NOT be back as a HoWife! Now Bethenny he would give his eye teeth to have her back in the fold and on the franchise!

    • California35 says:

      I would be cool (for me:-)) if Bethenny went back to Bravo, but to her own show or for behind the camera work. If her own show, please after the whole divorse is done and over.

    • chismosa™ says:

      How DUMB am I – I watched gossip table before reading this so I repeated the same thing.

      Sorry – you had given the info right here !

  36. chismosa™ says:

    OT/

    Can someone tell me who is this 
    “chrisley?” On his own show? And is that his wife with the delta Burke haircut from designing women??
    Is he gay? I feel some mags were claiming this. Why does he have a show? He has only 1 wife right ? LOL

    reminds me— how has Lulu been? Anyone see her post recently? Hope she’s ok.

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

      What a bunch of wackadoos!! I know T-Rex had a post about them the other day but since I didn’t know who he was I didn’t read it-now that I watched I need to know what she said about him…who the F is he????

    • Mene Seela says:

      “Why does he have a show? He has only 1 wife right ? ”
      HA! I know right? How can a straight guy with only one partner get his own show on Bravo? By being a jerk … I assume.

      • chismosa™ says:

        It’s not even a bravo show. It’s on another channel but they’re pushing it on people.
        When they should be airing old NY episodes to get people interested for tonight. Idiots.
        Ratings will be low again

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

          NY has been on all morning and afternoon-if I watch anymore of it I won’t want to watch tonight…I’m on NY over load!!

    • T-Rex says:

      He is some weirdo wannabe Housewife, who is gay(allegedly) and is married to a beard and had kids to offset his “downlow”(allegedly) gay lifestyle. He is also 45 million dollars in debt and filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy back in 2012. Now Chapter 7 is the MOST EVIL of bankruptcies takes years to filter through, but basically this SCUMBAG won’t owe a DIME TO ANYONE if it does go through. Yep he gets to rip-off his credits to the tune of 45 million dollars, has a reality show and the courts can’t touch him since the new money is coming in “after” he already filed his bankruptcy. I know this sucks but it’ s the way the courts work.

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

      • chismosa™ says:

        Whoa !!!!

        I do know about ch7 because of YOU.

        So wait, does this mean anything Teresa and Juicy make now post-judgement does not have to be paid back ? I know she’s not ch 7…..

        Yuck

        Thanks TRex

        • T-Rex says:

          No Chismosa, TheJuicy’s will have to pay back EVERY DIME and cannot file bankruptcy, that’s part of their Plea Deal they made. They lied about their bankruptcy on the Chapter 11, which means paying back creditors, pennies on the dollar, usually anywhere from 5 to 7 cents on the dollar, still awful, but they can’t any longer, due to the Plea Deal

          • chismosa™ says:

            Ok so any and all monies made now and since they got “picked up” can all go towards this payment.
            Including bravo salaries.

            Why don’t they appoint a trustee to oversee this and make sure they’re not spending frivolously ????
            Dresses, stylists, luxury car leases, extraneous $hit.

            Disgusting

      • Powell says:

        Why do these networks keep giving shows to or casting people in so much financial trouble?

    • Powell says:

      Yeah I saw that last night. It’s not a Bravo show though

  37. California35 says:

    Great recaps texastart and Ramonacoster.

    I love this time of seasons. The beginning of NY with still plenty of hoped for a good season. And the end of BH with relieve that it is over 🙂

    So far i am ok with all excelt of course Aviva. She is teying, but you can tell she is trying…very hard. She can flip any second. Manipulating woth tequila shots … Come on! She will later say that she knew she could win Ramona with drinks. But any ways, if we go by this episode only and not what we saw last season. She still didt help herself, calling Ramona old AND askin Carol for help the first time she sees her. Reservations aboit the new girl, not only because she is friends with Brandi, but also for her coments, that she is young, that other are old, that she is pretty, Jill’s way to pay for gifts. Love having Ramona and Sonjia back, like heather and Carol’s convo also. No need for the one missing 😛 Part time housewife or Aviva 🙂

    • Mene Seela says:

      Aviva called Ramona old?
      She must not watch on HD. Aviva’s skin texture with all her heavy eye make up makes her look older than Ramona! She should follow whatever Ramona’s skincare regime is.

      • California35 says:

        I agree, how does Ramona does it? But she does take care of herself, those who don’t like her have said she drinks too much and yeah she does drink, but it doesn’t show in her face and or skin, it is better than some 🙂

    Aviva filmed Bethenny this morning

  45. VV™ says:

    BB,

    Thanks for the recap. I refuse to watch another Crapfest go down. So, your Recap fills me in.

  46. chismosa™ says:

    Aviva is on the phone literally saying she heard Bethenny and Jill will come back (but she’s taping at Bethenny today!?!????) to replace Heather and Carole who are both trying to be the new Ramona and Sonja – and she says “NOT!”

    She is stirring up so much $hit. And Bethenny is having her on ???

    Bethenny and Andy are in cahoots

    • VV™ says:

      Juvenile Andy likes Aviva. He likes her a lot don’t ask me why.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Andy has to watch himself to not show faves with Carole since she was his friend before for a longtime.

        It’s delicate.
        But Aviva tapes Bethenny ????? And wasn’t Aviva friendly with Jill? I know Beth takes the credit for bringing Aviva on. Ughhhhhhh

        There is a huge twitter fight between Aviva and Carole. I don’t think it will help ratings though 😦

    • California35 says:

      I dont know if they like her, i think they know what/how she is. And see it as a “good” character for housewives. She brings all kinds of crazy.

      • VV™ says:

          These things are generally too campy for me but the next one seems to be set right after the war – so I’m DOWN

    Hello All. That reunion was disappointing. It appeared as if Andy was letting YoFo and BrandiGeyserville run rampant over Lisa and Joyce. As soon as either one started talking they’d jump in and talk over them. He should have told them to stop interrupting and let the others talk. Lisa was TOO nice to YoFo and Brandi.. For crying out loud… LET THOSE BITCHES HAVE IT!!! All barrels loaded.

    Tell YoFo… I never “WENT AROUND” telling ANYONE we were close friends. I’m not a nurse or a maid. I visited and called when I could and you weren’t home bound for 18 months as you’ve been pictured vacationing around the world! Also get your maid or KingCrass to get you Starbucks.

    Tell Brandi… I was trying to save what little of a reputation you had left. You have children, you moron, who will see you behaving like this someday but more importantly I tried to prevent everyone seeing you drinking and acting in an obscene, vulgar manner.

    Joyce needed to tell Carlton and Yolanda to be quiet and don’t interrupt! She did good w/ the tampon string but needed to comment on Brandi’s plain office attire. It’s a celebration, a reunion and Brandi’s dressed for an office job as were YoFo and Carlton.. They had to cut Joyce’s dress because no one else was was wearing long dresses. I’d like to see producers try that w/ NeNe, Teresa and now Kenya. It wouldn’t have happened. NEVER.
