Flipping Out S7E3 ”Road Trip” by BB

For those of you who care, the Jeff Lewis paint line is now featured in Home Depot. Congratulations to Jeff!

Jeff has promoted Zoila to House Manager, and she supervises the maids, Lupe and Maria. Of course Jeff is going to exacerbate the tension that already exists between Lupe and Zoila. Zoila doesn’t care because she’s the boss and she no longer has to do any cleaning. Lupe likes to party on the weekends and doesn’t like to take direction from Zoila. Jeff makes sure Zoila knows the house is her responsibility and she needs to delegate the jobs to the staff. It’s not Jeff’s job to tell the cleaning staff what to do. He’s going to have to have a meeting.

Jeff has Vanina at the meeting to translate between him and the housekeeping staff. Maria doesn’t want to get involved in the tension between Lupe and Zoila. Jeff tries to mediate between Zoila and Lupe and tells them this is a long term situation and they need to get along and respect each other. Jeff knows things weren’t resolved between them.

FO S7E3_2While Jeff and crew are on the road, Jenni, as head of human resources, meets Zoila for lunch to discuss the housekeeping staff problems. Zoila tells Jenni Lupe doesn’t like to work on Saturdays because she parties and she knows Lupe doesn’t like her. Zoila tells Jenni she needs to take care of this bitch. Jeff comes home for Arizona to find out that Lupe has quit with no notice. Zoila tells Jeff it’s because she didn’t like working on Saturdays, but Jeff thinks there’s more to the story. Jeff thinks Zoila ran her off or maybe even killed her and buried her somewhere. Jeff tells Zoila she shot herself in the foot because he’s not hiring anyone else and she will have to go back to cleaning.

FO S7E3_3Jeff has clients who are in some type of delay due to contractors or business managers or whatever. He wants to find smaller jobs so he can keep getting paid. They pay a call on Jeff’s grandma Patty in Fullerton. Now we can see where Jeff gets his bluntness. She talks to Jenni about how much weight she’s put on with her pregnancy. Jeff has already redone her living and room and guest bathroom and she loves what he did. Jeff now wants to do her kitchen, but she doesn’t want him to change her cabinets and knows she will have a fight on her hands about them. Jeff is not doing the kitchen he wants to do, but at least grandma Patty is letting him do something. Grandma Patty, who is 88 and has mild dementia, was gifted a large Pit Bull puppy when her prior dog died. Definitely not the right dog for her. This dog reminds me of Kim Richard’s Kingsley. He needs to be trained stat.

FO S7E3Jeff has taken Larry the dog trainer to grandma Patty’s house to train Lucy. Grandma has agreed to a meeting only. Grandma disagrees with Jeff about the dog being out of control. Jeff is not going to budge on the dog training issue. Grandma Patty doesn’t want Lucy to leave, but the dog needs to be reprogrammed away from the house. She’s upset and blaming Jenni for saying too much. Jenni apologizes and tells her she was just trying to help. Grandma Patty asks Jenni to back off the help a little. Jenni’s feelings are hurt and she cries in the car about grandma Patty being upset with her. Jeff knows that Grandma Patty is not upset at Jenni, but upset with Jeff and the situation being out of her control.

Later, Lucy has graduated from training camp. Jeff lets her in and she’s very energetic and jumping all over Jeff. Larry comes over and Grandma Patty tells Larry Lucy really hasn’t been behaving. Larry tells Patty Lucy needs a higher activity home and he wouldn’t have selected Lucy for Patty. Grandma Patty is lonely and doesn’t want to let Lucy go. Jeff doesn’t know what he’s going to do about it because Grandma Patty has become attached. Jeff just doesn’t want anything bad to happen. Grandma Patty says Lucy is a good girl.

While Jeff is waiting for the larger projects to start, he takes Craig and Carolyn Jackson shopping. They live in Paradise Valley, Arizona and Jeff was hired to furnish their $6 million dollar house for them. He has a budget of $100,000. Craig’s house is furnished from his bachelor days and Carolyn wants it to be more feminine. They are shopping in LA and shipping to AZ. Craig and Carolyn definitely have different tastes. Jeff is the fifth designer hired by Craig.

Cue the inappropriate talk about the penis fountain Andrew chose for Jeff’s side yard and Vanina and Gage being on their monthly cycles on the road trip to Arizona. Jenni won’t be going due to her advanced pregnant stage. Jeff is taking $100,000 worth of furniture to install in Craig and Carolyn’s house. If they don’t buy the furniture, then Jeff will be stuck with the cost of getting the furniture to and from Arizona.

Jeff, Megan, Vanina, Gage and Andrew take a van to Arizona to meet with the truck carrying the furniture for installation. Jeff doesn’t like to drive anyplace further than two hours. Jeff makes them listen to a CD of Jenni rapping about pooing. Then Vanina gets car sick and has to move up to the front seat. Jeff asks her if she’s hungry and wants a greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray.

When they arrive in Arizona, they don’t have time to stop at Starbucks because they are already late. They only have a short timeframe to install the furniture. The furniture truck is going to have a problem getting up to the house without hitting a low hanging tree. The barely make it. Jeff tells Carolyn not to look at anything until it’s in place. Jeff is worried about both Carolyn and Craig being happy because Craig is resistant to change and not a pushover. Jeff can only go so far with him and doesn’t like them being there watching while the furniture is coming in and being placed.

This is a test for Megan to see how fast she works and how she gets along with everyone. She’s confident and does a good job. Andrew is trying to make sure Jeff notices he’s just as good as Megan. He’s told to remove all the price tags from the furniture but doesn’t realize there are stickers underneath that he didn’t see, which results in everyone going around removing the price stickers. When all is said and done, both Craig and Carolyn like it and end up purchasing $75,000 worth of furniture. Success! It’s definitely an improvement over the before pictures. Craig suggests maybe the beach house will be next.

Southern Charm S1E3  “In the Cups”
By HydrangeaHussy

We’re back for week 3! Just to recap: Ravenel wants to revive his political career but needs a wife & son, Craig likes Kathryn who already hooked up with Ravenel, Shep hooked up with Kathryn but he really likes MJ, Whitney’s bringing home girls who wear Ann Taylor, & the girls are playing second-string to the guys. On a sidenote – Ravenel isn’t the only felon reviving a political career! Our former governor, Edwin Edwards aka “Fast Eddie”, has announced that he’s running for Congress. Apparently felons can’t run for state office, but they can run for federal office.

Cameran is ready to get started on her new career – real estate. She doesn’t have a trust fund, so she has to make her own way. I did notice that she’s driving a Mercedes AMG (remember the car that George bought Lori?), which typically runs in the 6-figure range. Cameran is apparently doing very well for herself! She’s meeting with Eve, a realtor who lists million dollar homes. Cameran is doing a good job selling herself – she loves Charleston & the architecture – until she informs Eve that she quit her job two weeks ago. Then the interview starts getting awkward. Eve thinks that Cameran looks fragile & is concerned that she can’t handle the stress. Cameran turns on the charm & gets the job! Well, she gets a 3 month trial.

SC S1E3_6Danni & Shep are meeting for lunch. She wants advice on how to let Ravenel down easy. It’s pretty obvious that she’s still interested in Shep, but he has some serious growing up to do. They had a great 4 month relationship, but Shep wasn’t ready to commit. He thinks marriage will be obsolete in 100 years. Seriously? Danni advises Shep to embrace growing up & tells him that he’s going to lose MJ if he doesn’t change his ways. I think that if he was serious about MJ, he wouldn’t have hooked up with Kathryn. He seems to be one of those guys that refuses to make any compromise or sacrifice. He expects for a girl to fall all over herself to make him happy from the very beginning. Sorry, but you have to work for that kind of attention. Danni wants to tell Ravenel that they’re just friends. They have a lot in common, but she doesn’t see herself with someone with his background. Poor Ravenel! He just can’t get past his conviction. Shep points out that he was in public office & that you just can’t have big parties with drugs when you’re in public office. Holy cow! Did I just agree with Shep on something?

Ravenel meets with his French tutor. He wants to brush up so that he can take Danni to a nice French restaurant. He believes that a Southern gentleman should be a man of the world. I don’t know much about South Carolina history, so I don’t know if there’s much French influence in Charleston or not. I will commend Ravenel for continuing to learn new things. There’s something very attractive about a man who speaks another language.

SC S1E3_3Ravenel, JD & Craig are on Ravenel’s boat. I love that Craig tells the guys that he’s been in court all day, as though he was actually trying a case. He’s in law school so there’s no way that was happening. Craig wants to use the boat to take women out. He thinks that saying he has a boat is the way to get women. Is it just me that isn’t impressed? It would take a lot more than a few material possessions to win me over. Craig tells the guys that Shep hooked up with his girl. JD points out that he’s referring to Kathryn, who was just with Ravenel. He thinks Charleston is getting too small if there’s so much overlap. I like JD’s cynicism. Ravenel says that a Southern gentleman doesn’t discuss hookups, so he isn’t telling Craig about his hookup with Kathryn. Um, a Southern gentleman wouldn’t bring a camera crew into the bedroom with a one-night stand either.

It’s date time! Ravenel & Danni meet at the restaurant. Not an auspicious beginning. He’s never had to work hard for a girl, but he’ll try for Danni. Poor guy! He really thinks that he has a shot here. She immediately brings up the awkward half-kiss after the BBQ. It’s obvious that he thinks that this is going somewhere, but she shoots him down gently. She compliments him & tells him that she values his friendship, but that they should just stay friends. He presses for more info & she’s completely honest – it’s his conviction. For the first time, Ravenel seems shamed by his past. He needs to show more humility about it, a felony conviction isn’t something to joke about.

Ravenel invites Shep fishing so he can get more info on what happened with Danni. It’s pretty clear to me what happened – she didn’t want to get involved with someone with his reputation. Shep is more of an outdoorsman than Ravenel. Shep is responsible for doing the actual fishing, while Ravenel wants to drink beer. We learn that the two are related through the Boykin family. That’s fairly typical around here b/c we keep track of “our people.” When someone in the South asks who “your people” are, they want to know your family tree. Ravenel is concerned that his reputation will follow him forever. That brings the conversation around to Danni. Shep admits that he spoke with Danni & encouraged her to stay away. Ravenel doesn’t seem insulted; he actually seems to really want to understand. He takes Shep’s advice & commentary much better than he took Whitney’s.

SC S1E3_2Cameran, Chuck Bass & his assistant visit Jenna’s new house. They’re impressed with the size. Cameran points out the porch ceilings are painted blue. This is actually a Southern, specifically lowcountry, tradition. Haint blue was believed to represent water, which spirits couldn’t cross. Painting your porch ceiling the color would keep evil spirits from entering. The house is amazing. Jenna says that she didn’t grow up with money, but that it’s nice to buy things now. I don’t know why the assistant is there, other than to provide some west coast commentary on Southern traditions – like the lowcountry boil, which I’m assuming is akin to our crawfish boils. Cameran notes that Assistant doesn’t seem to do much assisting. I’m not sure how Jenna earns her money & neither does anyone else. Cameran is absolutely correct – we don’t talk about money in the South. Actually, we all know where everyone gets their money, but it’s completely tacky to bring it up in a social setting. Assistant brings it up for them, asking Jenna how she affords the house. I understand not wanting to talk about it, but “I invest in things” is sketchy. Jenna is so evasive & shady! Chuck Bass opines that her older boyfriend helps her with the rent.

SC S1E3_5Oh Patricia! I love this woman! She’s at her dressing table when her rare Birkin bag arrives. Where’s Lea Black? The bag is beautiful! It’s baby pink. She informs her chef/sidekick that she has something to match and pulls a bubblegum pink revolver out of the drawer! I die!

SC S1E3_7Jenna throws a housewarming/pool party. Craig passes because he doesn’t want to see Shep. Jenna’s friends are very eclectic, something she prides herself on. Ravenel, JD, Cameran, Shep & Danni are all there. Cameran notices that Ravenel is drinking heavily because he’s a little depressed. Ravenel is hitting on anyone that walks by. It’s kind of gross. Chuck Bass arrives in full dark clothing & sunglasses. He’s very west coast.

SC S1E3_8Kathryn is ignoring Ravenel so he chases her down. He admits that he hooked up with her once, but hasn’t called her in weeks. He wonders why she’s upset. I’m not sure where I stand on this one – he probably should have called, but she also chose to hook up outside of a real relationship. He didn’t think it was going anywhere, but apparently she did. She chooses this moment to bring up the fact that they didn’t use protection. Oh dear. Why would you sleep with someone without protection? Especially if you’re not even in a relationship! Let the pregnancy scare begin! Ravenel, trying to be the nice guy, asks Kathryn to hang out. This is a little suspicious to me. She’s hurt that he never called, she brings up the unprotected sex, now he’s showing interest again. I’ll reserve judgment until we see how this plays out.

  1. I re-watched NY last night. I am really liking it. Kristen is a great addition. Aviva is nuts. Seriously. We are talking about a single woman’s career and Carole has every right to be totally pissed. What we have here is a stupid women on a reality show who knows NOTHING about publishing and writing slandering Carole’s name. For what? Rating on a reality show. This is not cool. It is wrong. Heather and Ramona realize the seriousness of what Aviva is doing. They have their own businesses.
    Carole is trying to rationalize with crazy and it is not work. Next week we see her get unglued.

    • catmom1 says:

      I watched it again last night too. It was good. Keeping my fingers crossed that bravo doesn’t destroy this one too.

      I keep thinking about the Aviva – Carole thing. (I’ve really got to get back in the garden) I keep coming up with a Bethannyism…..”Jill has her dirty little fingerprints all over this”, allegedly. Try and damage someone’s career – check. Tell the press the story as you wish it to be – check. Aviva saying that Heather and Carole were going to be replaced by Jill and Bethanny. Classic Jill moves.

      • chismosa™ says:

        And Aviva taping Bethenny ? Wonder if Bethenny is going to go AT her in an Omarosa-type way (in her “judgement-free zone” cough cough)

        I don’t get booking her. Carole should be along shortly ….

        Then again B is on bravo next week 🙄
        Hogging the spotlight off Ramona! 🔦😠
        Crawling back …..

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Does it remind you of “spread eagle”!!!!!!!? LOL

    • chismosa™ says:

      I like Kristen AZ!

      I may be alone ….. Glad you like it.


    • Powell says:

      🙂 AZGirl I watched it again too. Yup. Adiva is nuts. Carole cracks me up when she was leaving and said to Adiva’s husband that “your wife is not a nice person” or however she said it. So no more talking about her phobias just acting crazy.

      • Anne says:

        Chismosa, I am warming up to Kristen and did not expect to, because of the Brandi connection. Your theory about the Aviva/she who will not be named connection and Aviva’s nonsensical attack on Carole makes sense. Ugh! I thought it was hilarious when Carole was leaving and told Harry Dubin ” Now, I understand your divorce.” Especially since he was painted as such a bad guy last season. I actually kind of enjoyed watching him with Sonja.

        OT, today is World Down Syndrome Awareness Day. There is a really beautiful video about people with Down Syndrome that was done by Saatchi & Saatchi. The one that I saw was made for Europe so it is mostly english subtitles — but really beautiful. I’m not going to try to paste the link — but if anyone is interested and has time you should check it out.

        • chismosa says:

          it was Catmom’s theory (upthread? of jz?)- i can totally see Aviva being fed by Jz last season in St. Barth’s when she went AT Ramona and …. i forget what ramona screamed at her in the kitchen? i forget???

          JILL/ ASHY— you remind me??? i FORGOT? I think i need to — i don’t know – simmer, chill out, something???? 😉

          in St. Barth’s at the no-banner-no-parade meltdown– Aviva said “i had heard of how you were and how you treated people, i was TOLD”…. i.e. grubby little hands all over THAT!

          I wonder about Carole and Aviva’s wrath for her. Maybe A thought she could have Carole be her buddy as the newbie… but saw that Carole went to the Ramonja side and was pissed? i don’t know.
          Then the PHOBIAS and insecurities and ISSUES crept up and naturally, she got a book deal (big deal)— and BLAM, attack carole.

          She was expecting Carole to be….. wait for it….

          G R A C I O U S

          and congratulatory…. she’s OBSESSED with how the others treat HER. GET OVER YOURSELF. i’m telling you, her upbringing cannot be far off from that poster on nym recap comments, and does she not have siblings? the world DOES NOT. REVOLVE. AROUND. YOU.

          Thanks for that info about DS day, i hadn’t known (?) that there was a day… sadly. My first cousin was born with that and died at 2/3 yrs old. We always think it will be a ‘genetic’ factor but i do not believe it is. i know what it is, chromosomal, etc. but i do not think a genetic issue factors into it. I will look for the video.

          • Powell says:

            Oooh Chismosa. You’re right. Adiva is obsessed w/herself. I think she’s so scared that people will treat her differently because of her disability so she’s all up in the ladies faces “I’m Aviva. Look at me. It’s all about me.” I don’t think the ladies see her disability. Last season even Ramona said to Adiva “oh I forgot about your leg” when she and Adiva went shoe shopping.

          • Anne says:

            Chismosa – people with Down Syndrome have an extra chromosome. They have 3 of chromosome 21 — hence the date 3/21 selected for celebrating DS Awareness. However, people with Down Syndrome may have other health problems, including other genetic defects unrelated to the DS. My sister and her husband went to genetic counseling when they found out that my nephew had DS prenatally. There are factors that play into DS, such as age of the mother, but none are dispositive. 18 year old mothers can give birth to a child with DS.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Dispositive == genetic??? Hereditary?

              My cousin I just verified, died of leukemia ?- not sure. Oh she was 5 or 6 and was being “hidden”—- (i can’t believe this but it’s true)
              I didn’t find out until I was about 20 that I had had this cousin. Deep family secret $hit.
              Due to her, my mother was advised to get an amnio on myself and my brother. And then told her kids and their wives would need to get amnios as well. But that was the 70s.

              I wish all the best for your nephew and hope he is doing well. ❤

              • chismosa™ says:

                Just verified she DID – die at 5 or 6 from leukemia

              • Anne says:

                Down syndrome is not hereditary. It is not known what causes some babies to have an extra 21st chromosome. There is some research indicating that older mothers are at risk for having a child with DS, but that is true for a number of health conditions. I believe that the AMA recommends certain types of prenatal testing, including the test for DS for women over the age of 35. However, young mothers can have babies with DS.

        • Powell says:

          Anne yes “Now I understand your divorce” was too funny. 🙂

      • catmom1 says:

        Loved that comment last night. Didn’t catch it on the first viewing. The Aviva we’re seeing seems to combine the worst traits of Jill and Kelly. An aggressive, bossy, know it all with a large serving of delusional and crazy.

      • Some posters thought Carole was rude saying that to Aviva’s husband. I frankly would have told him she is nuts.
        What was with Heather’s makeup last night? I kept thinking it was lighting and the yellow wallpaper but it was really bad.

        • Eastbayca says:

          Isn’t it Aviva or Heather who did the same thing to Ramona last season?

          • catmom1 says:

            I think I remember Heather saying something to Mario early on in the last season.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Oh yes, at the party where Ramona is over heather’s shoulder listening to Heather tell Carole – “they shouldn’t make fun of Jacques’ accent …. Blah blah”

            And Ramona storms by with “you talk behind my back! I don’t like it!” And walks away ….

            That’s when Heather says to Mario you’re wife is crazy.
            But they’re all good now.
            And we know Ramona by NOW.

            Aviva is CERTIFIABLE

        • Powell says:

          If I would have been in that room I would have high fived Carole.

    • I’m warming up to Kristen. I liked seeing her & Heather with their kids. As for Aviva – she is spreading baseless gossip that could damage Carole’s career. I find it very suspicious that Aviva’s publisher would comment on Carole’s book. It would be incredibly unprofessional for a publisher to spread rumors about an author.

  2. Good Morning Everyone!

    Thank you BB and HH for the Blogs! Good and generous job!

  3. MISHIGA95 says:

    Great recaps! I think Cameran Eubanks is dating/engaged to someone VERY rich (just google her boyfriend), which might explain the expensive car 🙂

  4. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Happy TGIF!!! Yeahhhhhhh the crowd roars. Or is that only me? 🙂 I hope you’re having a great day so far. It’s going to get up to 60s in my neck of the woods. I’m at the doc and its chilly to me. But we shall see. Everyone have a great day.

    • catmom1 says:

      I’m roaring with you Powell. We’re supposed to see 60’s here today too. Yay!!!! Planning on getting outside an moving a few small trees and shrubs. TGISpring!!

    • SoutheastVA says:

      It’s 61 and partly sunny down here. It feels great. But, when Monday rolls around, we’re back to the 30s:(

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Oh honey buns!!! I am super excited it’s FRIDAY….HOORAY!!

  5. BB says:

    I’m not watching RHONY but I’ve been reading about it here and there. I can’t bring myself to feel sorry for Carole. She’s on a housewife show. It’s her turn to be “the victim.” She’s not the first one who has had to protect her business or personal reputation because someone has thrown allegations out there, true or false. All housewives get their turn. It’s the Bravo formula. If it weren’t for her being on a Bravo show, many people wouldn’t even know she wrote a second book, despite the moderate success of her first book, which was totally different. I read What Remains and liked it. I’m not interested in reading her novel, but there will be people who will buy it because she’s on a housewife show. She’s benefitting more than being hurt by what some loony woman is insinuating. If I were her, I would have taken the high road, but she chose not to play it that way because that wouldn’t be good for ratings. Same with the twitter back and forth. Ratings, ratings, ratings. Just my two cents. I’m not watching but I know the Bravo game well and so do these housewives.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      I can’t bring myself to feel sorry for any of them, on any city but, I’ll still watch.. If it weren’t for the show, I wouldn’t know who she is at all. Never mind having written a book 😉

      • Powell says:

        LOL MTH. Like Wendy Williams says “that’s rich people problems”. 🙂

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          I just cannot make myself care about any of these people who, have signed their lives away to advertise their wares on a shitty bravo show, and then complain about the reactions they get either from their cast mates or even from the public in the name of stirring drama. What is her real claim to fame anyway?

          • 2Stupid says:

            Being married to a Kennedy. That family is another thing I don’t understand. Talk about a whole bunch of crazies. I did have my crush on Jon Jon though.

            • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

              I don’t think I should get into what I think of the Kennedys though, I will say that such an association is enough reason to hate her.

            • Anne says:

              Carole’s husband was not a Kennedy. His mother is Lee Bouvier. His maternal Aunt, was Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. Anthony Radziwill and JFK Jr., were very close.

    • chismosa says:

      especially as her first season was all HER WRITING THE BOOK…… now 2+ years later….. its the ‘deal’ of the book.
      ay ya yay……

      • Cristina (djprincessc) says:

        why are you orange!?!?!? I’m gonna freak like Ramona! I don’t like change!! lol xoxox!

    • keeponrockingme says:

      I don’t feel sorry for her, but I do understand why she’s mad and that she has the right to be mad. Following the Bravo formula: most get the chance to play the victim card, as you mentioned. Some of them play it over something small and insignificant (Jill because B didn’t send Bobby flowers after his surgery), and usually when that happens, public opinion turns and they look ridiculous and petty. Carole doesn’t look ridiculous and petty (to me), because Aviva’s allegations are ludicrous and the motivation is so transparent.

      • BB says:

        And everybody knows Aviva’s allegations are ludicrous and her motivations are transparent, and that’s why I think Carole’s reactions and all this twitter fighting back and forth between Aviva, Carole and Heather is for the ratings more than anything else. Last season their ratings weren’t that great, so I think they are ramping it up a bit.

      • Powell says:

        Keeponrockingme I would like to think that Adiva isn’t lying about what she heard thru her publisher ‘re:#ghostwritergate cuz they are her publisher who work to get her book out there. But I do think Adiva exaggerated what she heard from her publisher and it’s possible her publisher only said it was cuz maybe Carole turned them down to publish her book. I believe publishing houses say things about rival publishing houses clients.

        • Anne says:

          Powell: Carole’s first book, What Remains was published by Simon & Schuster. Aviva’s book is being published by Gallery Books, which is a Simon & Schuster imprint. I think it unlikely that anyone from Simon & Schuster that was working or had worked on Carole’s new book would have said anything negative about an existing author, unless they were disgruntled about not getting to publish the novel.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Hi BB! I agree with you. I don’t feel sorry for her either (or any of them).
      I think she knows that it’s the Bravo formula and had to confront Aviva about it. She was also catty and I felt that she shouldn’t have screamed at Aviva in her home. I think I’m the only one that doesn’t really like Carole,Kristen and Heather is now trying to be her pitbull. I don’t feel like there’s any chemistry amongst the women so they have to try hard to be friends and they all must hate Aviva because of it. I don’t like Aviva either, it’s just that she’s a better villain than Brandi.

      • Powell says:

        Foxymel Brandi whines about her ex and Adiva whines about her leg and phobias. 🙂

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          Haha so true, Powell. I’ve had a migraine for many hours so Flipping Out was a nice change to watch.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      BB, I think I love u. Ok, everyone…what BB said. That’s what I think, too. I just don’t write so good.

    • Constance says:

      Carole was out of line when she told Aviva she was “nothing” because she was a stay at home mother

  6. SoutheastVA says:

    HydrangeaHussy – Great “Southern Comfort” recap. I agree with regarding southerners knowing “their people.” I realized something years ago. I don’t think I could date anyone unless I knew where “their people” were from and had a shared upbringing commonality. I know it’s really shortens the list of suitors. But, I don’t think I could intimately know someone from some far off place I know nothig about. It’s a good thing my better half and I met in high school. We didn’t start dating until college though. I knew of his family and he new some of my cousins, we shared friends and acquaintances. We even had people we disliked in school in common. It made it easy to feel comfortable with one another. Also, we knew we weren’t related in any way.

    IRT last week’s SC episode, I noticed Ravenel’s father slyly joking that he was tipping the server with $5s to get rid of the Lincolns because he didn’t like him (or somethnig to that affect). I took it as a I (Ravenel Sr.) hate that slavery ended joke. I wonder how much money and land his family “lost” because they no longer had free labor before Lincoln came along.

    • chismosa says:

      HI SEVA, your first sentences remind me of the Golden Girls episode where Blanche wants to be a “Daughter of the South” (was that the name?) and needed to verify her lineage and her people, but then finds out she had a YANKEE !!! grandmother — and she was ——- JEWISH! The women fainted at the luncheon, it was such a hysterical episode.

      • SoutheastVA says:

        I think I remember that episode. I’ll have to find it and watch it. I love the Golden Girls.

    • Powell says:

      SoutheastVA I remember Ravenel’s father saying that about Lincoln. I don’t know what he was trying to say about it though. Now when Ravenel’s father said he should get a girl pregnant I started thinking that that hasn’t changed in the South. Wealthy men from those types of families have knocked up some woman and had to get married for yrs and yrs. That probably won’t ever change.

  7. OT. NCAA. Who is getting killed on their bracket? ME!!!!! sh#t Who the hell is South Dakota State University? Overtime on two games last night!!! Dayton beats Ohio State? Really. I don’t know if I can even watch today. I think Warren Buffetts Billion Dollar Bracket money is safe.
    I need to get to the office. New client coming in this a.m. BBL

  8. chismosa says:

    BB thanks for the recap.
    – i think Andrew is dangerous/ needs to go STAT
    – i think Zoila was in the wrong. She has had an uppity attitude for about 2 years now i feel. It’s fine, she doesn’t want or can’t- do the physical work. I don’t think she wants to be a manager and Jeff should know she will feel threatened by Lupe & the other maid. Zoila was threatened by the robot vacuum! Remember that… LOL! I think Z needs to just stay calm and will soon be the f/t nanny to baby Lewis-_____ (Gage’s last name?). I know when i worked retail a Looooooooong time ago i couldn’t handle when they made me a manager. I want to work UNDER people thanks very much! Zoila needs to zip it! But jeff gives her leeway.
    i want the giant bowl of pink and red starbursts in my kitchen that jeff has! yum! i dont even like candy that much.

    Megan’s great, i think she can handle J far better than that friend of Jeff’s who he hired years back, remember her– she couldn’t take it.

    I love the grandma- we see where Jeff’s personality came from 🙂
    What IDIOT brother of jeff’s (he has 2 i think)—- decides on a PITBULL of all things, a PUPPY ? right? for this 80+ yr old lady. IDIOT. i’m sorry. HUGE fail.
    i’d be like Jeff and just take the pitbull out and bring in a small maltese or something— no questions ASKED!

    ~~This was a hysterical episode to me. Jeff was beyond funny. I really can watch him all day long.

    ~~Jenni’s going to give birth very very soon. The calendar was july in the ep. and she gives birth in july!


    Hydrangea- i still have to catch up on the southern show! i want to! i will!!!!

    i’m binging on True Detective until 3/24 and it runs out. Ughhhhhhh~~~~
    thanks for the recaps!

  9. Eastbayca says:

    Watched RHONY again…isn’t Aviva’s housewarming reminiscent of Alex/Simon housewarming after renovations?

    • chismosa says:

      i thought that too….
      and the decor! like Alex Simon/ “post 2000s west side modern luxe” NOT!

      and the RUSHED party- remember when Alex and Simon were rushing to have a party when they didn’t have appliances! LOL

      Aviva made a point to say to carole – “WANT A BOWL OF PASTA????!!!!” in a weird, semi-psychotic way- and i think she said it lunch and THEN at her party at the 2-floors-only-rented-part-time townhouse— to CAROLE.
      i think Aviva is psychotically following what happened last season:
      “A bowl of pasta” – Aviva may have been pointing out when Carole went to lunch with Ramona last season – Carole ordered some pasta and then Ramona insisted on getting her extra pasta because it was a small order. This was when Ramona was first getting to know Carole.
      Aviva screaming that to Carole 2x this season already in the first 2 episodes alone (am i right? am i wrong? i may be wrong, at least 1x)— tells me she’s sitting and watching her last season closely.

      Heather kissed Josh on the lips- at Kristen’s house— anyone notice that?? I know my friend’s husbands for around 20 years also- I ain’t kissing on the lips !!
      i don’t know, i guess they’re just close.

      I have a theory that Sonja is being so PRO Aviva this season because things were really heating up with Harry and she didn’t want to unleash psycho Aviva on HER. I’m sure harry has told Sonja PLENTY about Aviva and her ways. And Sonja experienced her fully last season.
      i think Harry is loopy and weird but a great match for Sonja. I do think they compliment eachother. Why doesn’t Aviva want to stab Sonja in her sleep like she does Ramona and Carole? hmmmm
      Be careful ladies!!!!

      • Mene Seela says:

        Aviva doesn’t need to control Silly Sonja. She goes after women who are strong, like Ramona and Carole. Heather must be next. Aviva wants to be Head Bitch In Charge.

        • chismosa says:

          Hmmmmm. I have to think about this. I guess so…..

          If i was sonja i’d still sleep (with Harry) with one eye open

          Last season Aviva clearly attacked and went after both parts of Ramonja. I guess, after alcohol was involved? Memories of her mom (or crack-addled sibling if we are to believe the comments….. ?)

          this woman!!!!

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        The only reason I am liking Sonja this season so far, is because she’s being a good friend to Harry that she’s being neutral with Aviva. I wouldn’t want my friends or other people to be rude to my best friend’s wife or ex either.

      • Powell says:

        I thought I was the only one who would think Sonja is going to be pro Adiva this season

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          Sonja has truly managed to stay out of most fights. I thought that in Scary Island she was being nice to Kelly because she wanted to flip flop between groups, but she does manage to really forgive and forget. I think she has some insecurities because of her shitty Ex, but I am enjoying Sonja entertaining without showing her ass. Has that happened yet? Lol

      • Eastbayca says:

        Sonja is a happy woman having sex and those endorphins are doing wonders to her attitude 😉

    • Mene Seela says:

      East – oh right! Forgot about that! LOL!

  10. Mene Seela says:

    Another father left his child in the car all day after forgetting to drop her off at daycare! In Seattle. The baby is ok after spending 8 hours locked in the car at a mall.

    What these stories usually have in common is that parent doesn’t usually drop the child. They get into the car and autopilot to work. I have to admit that there were times I had to turn around to take my child to their destination because I was distracted and forgot. I never left anyone in the car all day!

    • chismosa says:

      oh my……

      he was going to work in the mall right? not to shop? or see a movie?
      I totally get the autopilot to work stuff.

      Sad! scary

      • Shiny says:

        Starts to seem safer to put the baby in the front seat so the distracted parent can’t forget a quiet baby?

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Thank God the baby is okay.

    • mrs peabody says:

      MS I did just the opposite, I went to pick my oldest up at his grandmother’s house with him sitting in the car right beside me. I had forgot she wasn’t watching him that day, had already picked him up from where he stayed for the day, was on my way home and turned off at her exit and went to get him. Boy did I feel dumb doing that when I already had him with me.

      • Powell says:

        Well at least you had your mind on him. You didn’t park your car at home and then leave him in the car.

    • Powell says:

      OMG!!! Thk goodness it’swarmed up some and that it wasn’t in the summer. Woooooo. I’ve seen on Oprah and other shows where parents have done this when they’re going to work. Sometimes the routine is altered. The mom usually takes the baby to daycare/babysitter and dad has to do it that day. Parents are on autopilot. There have been suggestions that moms should put their purse in the backseat and dads put whatever they carry next to baby’s car seats. You won’t forget your purse, briefcase, etc. Even if you forget to drop the baby off getting your purse etc will have the parent say “oops I didn’t drop the baby off”. I haven’t looked at car seats lately but I think there should be something on it that parents wind like a timer that goes off at the time you should be at the babysitter/daycare as a reminder.

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        Powell, it gets so hot so fast here in SoFla, that I have to start the car 5 mins before going anywhere after 10:30am. Can you imagine the poor babies having to go through that in the heat? Can’t even think about it.

        I saw the episode on Oprah when the lady accidentally left her baby in the car. The audience was not nice to her. I felt like she must’ve gone through her own hell for what she did and I think she was on the show to bring awareness?
        Can’t imagine. 😦

  11. Mene Seela says:

    Jeff loves conflict as long as it’s someone else taking the beating. Zoila might be a tiny bit haughty but mostly that’s Jeff telling her she has a staff to boss around and then he hires a woman (Lupe) who won’t listen to anyone.

    That $6 million dollar guy who’s house they decorated. I don’t care how much money he has … yucky dated taste on the house. New furniture doesn’t make that 1970’s swoopy ceiling place look expensive or attractive.


    • SoutheastVA says:

      I hated that house too. I think I saw it on HGTV or some other home channel before. I loved his Bugatti though.

    • chismosa says:

      Lupe was fantastic when she was first hired. Totally awesome. I remember. Jeff ribbed on Z about that.
      I think Z was playing nasty games with Lupe. In spanish when she addressed Lupe at the roundtable she wasn’t saying “do i praise your good work” — she was saying in spanish – in a way that meant it not in a NICE way. I’d have to watch it again. It was not a ‘favorable’ praising of work type question….
      Poor Vanina is not even a good moderator- she probably feels like she has to favor Z as she’s known her longer and Z is the OG. (i think she’s known her longer)

      Z just needs to chilllllax and know Jeff won’t ever let her go…. why be so insecure girl?


    • BB says:

      That AZ house definitely wasn’t my style, but Jeffree did a pretty good job of making it look a little homey at least.

    • chismosa says:

      agree on the house! yuck!
      where is paradise valley? is this a very uppity well known area? like scottsdale but Rich, Verrrry Rich?

      It looked like there’d be plenty of snakes ! yikes!

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

        Paradise Valley is landlocked in between Scottsdale and Phoenix. I live just north of there. It has beautiful mountain and very little commercial land. All residential lots must be at least 1 acre. It is small but very affluent. There are a bunch of houses in the $20 million + range there.

  13. Shiny says:

    A couple of the comments above convinced me to watch RHNY after my vow not to based on the clips of the upcoming season. (The scenes of George and the constant fighting looked toohorrible.)

    You’re right, the two episodes were pretty enjoyable, except for obsessive Aviva out to put down anyone near her, especially Carole. Aviva really doesn’t like people very much, does she, not unless they know how to worship her properly. After her various insensitive ageist remarks, I can’t wait until she turns 50. I thought 50 (long ago) was great, but she’ll spin into depression as her looks dissolve.

    So I will watch and appreciate the blogging even more; owever, I still will have to mute all appearances by George the sex maniac – and probably look away from the set as well. Yuck.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Is Carole 50? I didn’t get that ….
      And what a line ! What a comeback. Need the ghostwriter for good comeback Avives!

      And Aviva is in her mid 40s but they said this season was going around saying she was 40?

      This is so funny. Glad you’ll join and watch. Maybe you’ll raise those ratings ! LOL😃

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        When Aviva was telling Ramona that she was older than her and to lead the way, I couldn’t believe it! Aviva has a great body but her she looks like she’s in her 50’s. Carole face too. I think more fillers/Botox=you look older. They need to take a page out of Susan Lucci’s book. That woman looks great!

  16. Powell says:

    Hey everyone. I’m watching Atlanta reunion. Ok.

  17. Powell says:

    BS&H is having a reunion on WWHL studio. That should be crazy/fun to watch. That Mica is a trip.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I’m going to watch. I’m anti the girls attacking mika. Noxema Jackson goes hard at one of the girls. Those two are so smug and full of themselves.

      The sag harbor girl acts like she’s Jacqueline bouvier or something. That way she talks. Yuck! Sooooo affected and almost vocal fried.

      Go mica – she cracks me up. How old is she? I can’t tell.

      • Powell says:

        I don’t like how Mica acted towards the ladies in Hampton. She showed up to that girl’s parents home drunk. All they as her to do was not be loud cuz her parents had guests. That’s it. Then she went off. The girls did not know she was drinking cuz she was upset about her father. All she had to do was apologize about being loud and then explain she was upset. They would have listened and empathized. She didn’t give them that option, so that made them just think she’s drunk and can’t handle alcohol. Then every time they are out she’s drinking and gets drunk. No maybe the girls shouldn’t have gone so far as to say she has a drinking problem cuz as time went on they learned about her father and could then attribute her behavior to her dealing w/her father’s death. And after the fact she should have gone to the girls and told them what was going on.

        I don’t hate Duke. But I like it when a little known university beats a school like Duke in the NCAA tournament. Duke’s won many tournaments. Give the little schools a chance.

        • SoutheastVA says:

          I always root for the not NC school especially when an underdog is playing them. The old VA schools vs NC schools rivalry thing from college days. It’s pretty sad because I have so much family in NC. Oh well.

          • BB says:

            I used to be obsessed with ACC basketball back in the 70s. Ralph Sampson, Michael Jordan, etc., etc. Loved it when VA played NC. It used to be such a rivalry. And I’ll never forget Jim Valvano and his NC State NCAA win.

            • SoutheastVA says:

              I always hated MJ because he went to UNC. Ralph Sampson’s NBA career was underwhelming. I hated NC State’s championship win. I’m not as bad about it now but I still go hard for VA schools.

              • BB says:

                Ralph Sampson had an interesting life after college. I read about it somewhere, but can’t remember where.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Also I watched a Nightline where they strapped up the michigan state (I may be wrong on the name of the team, in michigan) – coach – IZZO? Is that right —>> he’s one of the top paid college coaches – they measured the stress level. To showcase these funny college coaches and how stressed they get dancing around on the sidelines.
      (NBA coaches don’t give a S /IMO they get paid regardless and it’s not passionate like college right?)

      So they strapped him up to measure heart rate, BP
      Dr Oz weighed in.

      He seemed very nice.

      • SoutheastVA says:

        I saw that too. His blood pressure went up up up. I think I would pass out on the sideline if I was coach. My body couldn’t take it.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Oh good. …. Yes they said his heart rate went up to the rate of a marathon runner’s and he hadn’t been moving. 😳

          that’s me when I watch soccer sometimes — heart attack about to happen

    • BB says:

      I love it when that happens! That’s why they call it March Madness.

Kim is already letting Kanye change her and dictate how he wants her to be. He has anger issues. I don’t think he’s dealt w/his mother’s death at all. He needs to see someone about his anger. He’s like Alec Baldwin. They both play into the paparazzi hands. They’re not smart when it comes to the media.

              Plus she sold that property- according to what someone posted here yesterday- that she had to sell that and also the colorado home. (well she could have gone to st. t and not had her home and just hung out)
              ok i’m over analyzing. VV has influenced me too much with the Lisa investigations.

              Sources tell Page Six that Sanders, an image consultant, was hired by the network to “make over” Drescher as a perhaps “more likable” character for the audience and her castmates alike. But others close to the show insist that’s not the case.

      Are you still in Vegas?

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

        Yes….I’m at Adrienne’s hotel and wearing the Maloof Hoof…I look like an idiot in these cute little fat shoes!!

      • chismosa™ says:


        How did I miss this? Is this a continuation of Jill hanging out with Kyle and Kim somewhere ???
        That was funny the other day

  25. MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

    Flipping Out… I like the grandma and I LOVE that she bitch slapped Jenny. All these people in her house, standing in her kitchen, talking about what’s going to happen with HER dog, like she wasn’t even there. I’d have thrown them all out.

    • VV™ says:

      Are you watching Flipping Out? You a convert? 😜

      • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

        I have always kind of watched the show.. It’s better than those NY Mule teeth having drama queens right now. Both Carole and Adiva with her pervert father, remind me of a pair of talking Jackasses.

  26. Foxymel11(Mel) says:

    Thank you for the wonderful recaps! I just wanted to say that I hope Jeff doesn’t sell Gramercy because of Gage. Gage is so sentimental about that home and I think they can afford to not sell it. If I were Jeff, I’d keep it just to make him happy. I hope Jeff and Gage get on the baby train soon!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Me too. Such a beautiful house. ……

      I think Jeff is so impulsive he’s just HAD it with his clients. Love it!

      Poor Gage, I’m sure he grounds J more than we know.

    • Powell says:

      I hope they keep it too. Jeff doesn’t let Gage have any input.

      • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

        That’s Gage’s problem. He knows who JL is by now…

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          I know, but does he really have to sell that house knowing how much Gage loves it? I think Gage is a jerk most of the time(which I like) but seeing him sad makes me sad. Ok, I’ll stop. Lol

          • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

            That’s what he does… How many different houses have you seen JL living in in the past several years?

  27. chismosa™ says:

    Pindy- a/ is that a real dog? I see red eyes
    B/ is he in water facing up out of water or down into water ?

    Cute and scary at same time.

    Sorry it’s hard to zoom in on the phone and my 1987 PC….

  28. Powell says:

    Apollo says he doesn’t even care for Kenya. Then Kenya says to Apollo”then maybe you should stop texting me then”. NeNe laughed so loud and Todd’s eyes popped out of his head. 😀

    • chismosa™ says:

      Can’t wait to see Phake and hubby GO DOWN

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        I’m sure Apollo is a player, but Phaedra doesn’t want to look bad on TV! He better keep that shit on the DL.

  29. Eastbayca says:

    Did anyone notice this little tidbit during the Aviva/Carole fight…Carole saying Aviva went through three ghostwriters and her publishing house didn’t want to work with her?

    • chismosa™ says:

      There was SO much being said ….. I had to keep rewinding and putting the cc’s on ! Will relisten again.

      I’m surprised Faux-via didnt fall down the stairs!

    • Anne says:

      Yes, I caught that. Carole explains/addresses that and other issues in her blog.

    • catmom1 says:

      I heard that. I’m wondering what the powers that be at Aviva’s publishing co. are thinking now. Are they just happy for any publicity in hopes of selling her book? Are they just waiting for enough time to pass so they can be “done” (ala Jill) with her? Who is taking the heat for authorizing her book? Is there a support group for the ghost writers who had to deal with Aviva? Has Ramona sent them a case of Pinot? Is the support group open to other people outside the publishing business who have been traumatized by Aviva? Just a few of the questions I pondered while gardening today.

      • Exit4 says:

        Even though publishers etc talk about each other and the tidbits they hear-like in any other business-it’s supposed to stash on the DL! Not on TV. They can’t be thrilled with that!

  30. Hi everyone!! Wanted to pop in and see how everyone is doing. I’ve been really busy with work and nonsense. Its been a week from hell, another realtor in my office got into a HUGE screaming match with me and threatened me, our broker/team leader had to get involved (which was mortifying) and then last night a friend of mine came out of left field a REALLY gave it to me and tore me a new one for something you all wouldn’t even understand and I will spare you all the headache, but ya thats been my week and I’m ready for the weekend. I stayed home from work today, I need a break. lol. Hope everyone had a better week than I did! xoxo!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      ((((dJ)))). Sorry to hear what a hellish week you have had!!!! TGIF!

    • chismosa says:

      YO! this is cra-cray—- i can’t believe you had that fight at work. AND a friend! i wonder if mercury is in retrograde or it’s a full moon soon!???
      i’m so sorry.
      Please do take a break. Stress is not GOOD. Sit and watch some Bravo and chill. or rather, don’t watch Bravo 😉
      i’ll em you. hugs ❤

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Sorry to hear about your week. Good move on taking the day off! 😉

    • Cristina I so sorry you have had such a bad week. Sometimes people find one person to take everything out on. I have it happen to me and it hurts. I was like what? No clue whatsoever. Take a few minutes and just sit quietly. Imagine all the aggression is flowing out of your body. They get up and have a fun weekend! As my mother aways said “This too will pass”.
      ……oh…wine helps too.

      • ((((((((Cristina))))))) Sending love your way. If you can seat in a quiet place… visualize this person you had the shouting and send her/him feelings of peace and sympathy, visualize you are shaking hands and let things/words leave… We have your back, girl! ❤

  31. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    I liked the old better, but here are the new smileys. (No more animated ones.)

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Must be somebodty’s job PR time and they needed to show they’ve done something by fixing what wasn’t broken. I barely got through writing a Survivor recap (for later posting)… Likely the email notifications being screwed up is tied to this..

    • chismosa™ says:

      I miss ROLL!


      🌯 ?
      🐻 ?

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        You and Jill ^^^ are cracking me up. I miss the animated laugh the most and The Roll is not the same! No more cry! The mad/evil heads are not mad/evil looking.

        Who the heck wants a Burrito symbol???! Oh yeah, like that comes up in conversation…and a bear? Why? Was this programmer 12 years old? Did they hire Brandi?! They SUCK!

  32. Ok I have been stuck with George all day 🙂 and doing some really ridiculous boring work 🙂 🙂 so here is AZGirl snark.
    Craig Jackson who was on Flipping Out last night and his huge PV home. This guy has an annual car auction in Scottsdale (not too far from where Rebecca is I believe) and it is crazy. We are talking weeks of Lear Jets in and out of Scottsdale Airport and 100’s of millions of dollars in antique cars. Every car buff from around the world shows up at this auction and they spend 100k+ on cars. The Scottsdale scene turns into a celebrity who’s who.
    Look at Craig. Look at his hot wife. Does not take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.
    There are women I know who all they do is head up to Scottsdale and hang out at the high end restaurant bar areas looking for these guys.
    Nope. Not me. Love my guy. Simple.

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

      LMAO!!! I work at the Troon building north of the airport do I watch those private jets land all day. We have a gold digger wannabe in the office who has decided to learn golf to cover for hanging out in those golf clubs and bars. She went out and bought a BMR and I doubt she makes more than $40 a year. Like what man thinks she’s a good catch outspending her salary? Two years in and she still hasn’t bagged her sugar daddy.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I hadn’t realized you were in Arizona too.

        But do you ever see dragons fly over ???

  33. chismosa™ says:

    Working on it

    • Is this photo from this Season?

      • chismosa™ says:

        No last season, last reunion, just watched it to educate myself ! –
        So I’m going to do a picture of her now and do a side by side of her CHEEKS. 🍑🍑

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          There isn’t enough room on the screen for a side by side including her current cheeks, She has them so blown up and packed full of nuts, she can’t even close her mouth completely.

          • chismosa™ says:

            The app allows a side by side/ 4 pics, whatever. It’s fantastic
            ((Shoutout VV✊))

            Itd be great if I could zoom into the cheeks but don’t know if I can.

  34. chismosa™ says:

    They ARE in lady gagas video

    NO Brandi

    The video, which was filmed at the Hearst Castle mansion, features the ladies (including Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Yolanda Foster and Carlton Gebbia) wearing bright pink long-sleeve mini-dresses playing guitars, harps, a tambourine and a cello. That’s right: the ladies are Gaga’s band.

    In a behind-the-scenes clip on the Today show, the women are seen reviewing the footage with Mother Monster herself, giggling on set, and strumming away on musical instruments while synchronized swimmers and showgirls dance nearby.

    While appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last year, Gaga admitted she was a fan of “all the cities” of the Housewives franchise and particularly had an affection for Vanderpump, “Mostly because she doesn’t give any f—ks.”

    Wonder what other surprises she has up her sleeve? The entire video premieres Saturday night on NBC’s Dateline.

    • BB says:

      No Joyce either I guess.

      • VV™ says:

        Joyce tweeted she was invited but had a previous commitment and couldn’t make it. Word on Twitter is Brandi was not invited.

        AND….to once again prove who is Queen Lady Gaga follows Lisa on Twitter..

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

          Yes a follow by GaGa is all it take to be crowned Queen!

          • VV™ says:


            • chismosa™ says:


              Jill>>>>CHILLax. You have the Dicks gals! You are LOVED 👭

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

              Soooo #jelly-I wish the GaGa followed me…especially since I saw that ever so tastefull way she let a girl PUKE on her during a concert-maybe that’s how she crowns her QUEENS!! Nothing says “royalty” like getting puked on!!

    • VV™ says:

      I posted a link about this a while back when rumors started swirling. There is also a pic of Jill’s sisters with the captions Road Trip. I wonder if Jill is on the video……….

  35. VV™ says:

    Camille is meeting Jill, her sisters, and brother-in-law in Vegas….

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

      I just saw pics of my sis Kyle getting a mani/pedi with Yolanda!!! OMG!!

    • chismosa™ says:

      HAVE FUN JILL!!!!!/ ashy!

      Maybe you’ll get to film a music video !

      Enjoy some beers! 🍺🍻🍻Play blackjack …

      VV maybe Lisa can fly you out somewhere soon

  36. VV™ says:

    Kyle calls Camille an effing liar, Camille calls Faye the morally corrupt, Camille calls Kyle a bully… Camille insinuates Mauricio is a cheater and they are all happily posing for this pic here.

    kylerichards18’s photo http://instagram.com/p/lzDUHXv9R8/

    • chismosa™ says:

      Kyle said “f” ing???

      Was camille fired, JZ style? Or she chose to leave?

      • VV™ says:

        Yes, she did. Big contrast to saying Brandi misunderstood about the Lisa/Valley/Bankruptcy.

        You have to watch S1. Camille was so bad that she became the most hated HW in history at the time. S2, she hired a PR team and did a 180. I think that was her only intention to do S2 to rehab her image. S3 she was demoted to friend HW and it was her last season.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Thanks Chica

          I remember everyone on here really liking camille #2 when 2nd season was on. Everyone felt it was her real personality.

          Who do we believe …. Will the real camille stand up.

          I never understand Andy still salivating and keeping contact with polarizing or even regular EX HWs that he’s let go.

          These people should get together and write a book. Once the contracts are over. And confidentiality agreements are through.

          Spill the beans 🍛

    • Mene Seela says:

      I’m not surprised. I’ve been happy to see former co-workers who I could not stand. After a while it doesn’t matter that much.

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

    A Queen for sure….a DRAMA Queen..the “ATTACKS”…they never end. Poor poor Lisa!!

    • VV™ says:

      Drama Queen!? No, that title goes to Kyle. Nobody beats those Crying Heads. I lost count how many she had season…..😭😭😭💦💦💦

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

        Every tweet is about the “attack”…all day every day! Lisa cries more on twitter than any HW I have ever seen.
        Count how many tweets Lisa has about the “attack”….way more than Kyle’s crying heads-which had to do with rumors that your Queen brought to the show!!

        • VV™ says:

          Lisa a Victim? Only in the ETES of her hacer. Trust me, we dont see her like that. You’re scrutinizing every single word. Sounds like that obsessed blog that dissects everything with ill intentions. She’s a successful business person. Too busy for that…

          Lisa brought those rumors in the context of the conversation they were having. Lisa said how ridiculous trash magazines have a story of me doing porn. Them she made a joke about. If “my” friend makes a joke, I know. If I don’t like it, I let her know. Brandi and Brandi alone brought those rumors front and center at Carlton’s. Again, you take away those Crying heads after that kitchen scene. NOBODY WOULD’VE CARE.. NOBODY.

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

            Now I sound obsessed with Lisa? VV-seriously? She just a HW who I don’t think is perfect-she’s not an obsession. I don’t spend my every moment talking about her-just here-where HW talk is not only acceptable but encouraged.
            Her every tweet is about being the victim of these attacks-meanwhile she called Kyle a liar on the reunion last year-what is more attacking than telling people someone is a liar-when you know she is telling the truth. Lisa said she believed Yolanda but all the while she knew Kyle was telling the truth-that’s disgusting and it shows Lisa character is less than perfect.
            Lisa brought the rumors to the show to cause HURT-Lisa did that not Brandi-Brandi is to blame for lots of things but Lisa wanted the rumors on the show and she brought them there. If Lisa kept her mouth shut the rumors wouldn’t have been outed by her and then you would have a legit reason to blame Brandi. This is all on Lisa and it doesn’t even matter-nobody cares about it anymore-the only thing people are concerned about is that poor feeble Lisa is being attacked.
            If everything Brandi said about Lisa is a lie why is Lisa crying about it on twitter non stop? You say she’s joking-where is the joke? Every damn tweet is boo hoo-I don’t have to scrutinize every word-I only need to read her twitter TL-she’s going hard at being a victim and if any other HW tweeted like this we would be saying the same.
            the Queen -in the eyes of her lovers-can do no wrong. Even when she is wrong-she isn’t to some of her fans!! I remember when people felt the same about Brandi-back when I was “obsessed” with her.
