Real H0usewives Of New York by Empress

The ghostwriter debate has escalated into an all out fight.  Aviva and Carole are resorting to name calling and insults at a rapid fire rate.  Carole calls Aviva a bitch and a liar and Aviva thinks Carole is an elitist and unsupportive.  Aviva is still getting her information on Carole from “the word on the street”  and Carole is ready to leave.  They chase each other down a hallway and onto the stairs where it gets even worse.  Aviva screams ” Who in the Kennedys are you still friends with today?” and says that at least she’s not 50.  The Kennedys and being 50?  So much for keeping the discussion above the belt and  to the issue at hand.   Carole says that Aviva is a psychopath with no soul and then cups Aviva’s chin with her hand.  Aviva shouts that Carole shouldn’t touch her and I agree, she shouldn’t have – it was wrong.   At least she didn’t pull her weave or toss a table.    Aviva says that Carole turned her back on her and her kids.  I must have missed something during all the hollering.  What did Carole do to Aviva’s kids?   While the others hear the argument from downstairs, Housewives wannabe Amanda Sanders butts in to quell the fight and continue her self promotion as the next Dana Wilkey.   I question her success as an image consultant if this is the new and improved Aviva Drescher.Aviva Drescher, Carole RadziwillRamona and Mario have already escaped and the two combatants take to their corners to garner some support from the remaining cast members.  Carole tells Heather and Kristen that Aviva is a self-centered, self-absorbed jerk and I’m nodding right along with her.   Aviva hugs Sonja who seems to think Aviva knows what she’s talking about.  Aviva has a little pity part/tantrum and tells her listeners, with Amanda front and center, how she’s a shit writer, that Carole is the best writer in the world, yada, yada, yada.   Before Carole leaves, she tells Reid that his wife is not a nice person.  Maybe he knows that, maybe he doesn’t.  She then goes over to Harry and says, “Nice to meet you.  I totally understand your divorce.”  Probably not the nicest thing to say, but it was funny – yep, it was not nice and it was funny.

Ramona Singer

Heather stops by Ramona’s apartment and they talk about the less than warm housewarming party.  Heather is doing her best trying to convince Ramona that Aviva is slandering Carole and says, “She doesn’t have a leg to stand on.  Pun intended.”  Ramona isn’t really paying attention because she’s focused on the college-bound Avery.  Avery and her friends are preparing for their prom and Ramona is shedding a few tears about how beautiful and grown up they look.  Avery is her one and only, and watching her grow up and leave for college is like losing an arm.

Bravo included a scene between Carole and her editor, Barbara Jones and the two also talk about the ghostwriter brouhaha.  Barbara laughs it off and say that her work would be a lot easier if she was working with a ghostwriter.

Sonja Morgan

Sonja enters her townhouse, looking like Holly Golightly minus the cigarette holder.  She has a new intern who needs to understand the rules and duties that will be required of her.  Sonja explains that she had an intern who power washed her couch, so that sort of thing is frowned upon.  She also tells the young woman that she gets all sort of requests for appearances where she makes oodles of money.  She’s especially popular on the college circuit as a MILF.   She then fumbles through some quote from Ivana Trump about strong women and hot water and tea.  It’s Sonja. What can you say?

Aviva is having a photo shoot in Central Park for her book cover.   She wants to look like just a regular girl so book buyers won’t recognize the crazy until after they read it.  Kristen just happens to stop by and they occupy a park bench to do another play by play over the ghostwriter thing.  Kristen says that she can see Carole’s side of it and that Aviva doesn’t have the same background as a writer.  Oh, no, no, no – Aviva says she does have a tremendous, huge, fantabulous background in writing and then proceeds to tell her Carole about her English degree and law school and the disconcerting essay/letter to her mother* she wrote for “Chicken Soup for the Soul.”  She hasn’t written anything since law school, which was twenty years ago,  so I don’t know what Aviva means when she says she’s a writer.   Aviva then spots a turtle and the conversation is over.  Turtles are a big deal with Housewives, aren’t they?

Carole is having a baby shower for a friend of hers, Laurie.  They don’t know Laurie, but Heather, Jonathan and Ella are there, as are Kristen, Sonja and Ramona.  Jonathan and Ella get to take off early, leaving the other ladies to talk babies and books.  Carole thinks that Ramona is being used as a pawn by Aviva and has invited Nathan, a writer, to explain the difference between an editor and ghostwriter to Ramona.  That was a bit of overkill on Carole’s part and Ramona was somewhat insulted.   Carole pulls Ramona aside so that they can talk and talk and talk about Aviva.  Ramona says that she was just trying to make peace in among the group.   Carole tells Ramona that she’s going to take her out of it, but that Aviva has no respect for Carole.  Friends don’t say what Aviva said.

Kristen TaekmanKristen and her husband are going to participate in the Spartan Race, which his company is sponsoring.  Heather and Jonathan has agreed to join them.  Kristen is worried about the whole thing.  It did look grueling and more than a little muddy.   I would have written a check and sat on the sidelines with a latte while I cheered the rest of them on.   Her husband isn’t helping by telling her that she  was a pussy during the last event they were in.  After promising Kristen that they’ll have her back, Heather and Josh leave her in their wake.    She struggles through the race and the obstacles, finally making it to the finish line on her own.   When Josh meets up with her and tries to hug her, she pushes him away, telling him, “Seriously, get the f**k off of me.  I’m not talking to you right now.”  He tells her that no one else is complaining and she should “man up.”  Oh, no.  I don’t think that was wanted she wanted to hear.   Kristen tells him she ran the race for him but still he doesn’t get it.  He just repeats his stupidity – “Man up.”  Hey, pal – diamond earrings may not fix this one.

DWTS ABC logoDancing with the Stars S18E2 by BB

I’m going to go ahead and list the elimination results first.  The surprise announcement alluded to last week is that there will be a double elimination this week.

Diana and Henry (18 points last week) – 1st ELIMINATED (But they get to dance at Diana’s request)
Sean and Karina (20 points last week) – 2nd ELIMINATED (tenth to dance before 2nd elimination)
Drew and Cheryl (21 points last week) – 1st announced Safe (first to dance)
Billy Dee and Emma (15 points last week) – 2nd announced Safe (the Force must have been with him)
Merrill and Maks (24 points last week) – 3rd announced Safe (fourth to dance)
Danica and Val (24 points last week) – 4th announced Safe (second to dance)
Amy and Derek (24 points last week) – 5th announced Safe (sixth to dance)
Candace and Mark (25 points last week) – 6th announced Safe (fifth to dance)
Charlie and Sharna (27 points last week) – 7th announced Safe (eighth to dance)
James and Peta (21 points last week) – 8th announced Safe (seventh to dance)
NeNe and Tony (21 points last week) – 9th announced Safe (ninth to dance)
Cody and Whitney (22 points last week) – 10th announced Safe (eleventh to dance)

The contestants selected their own dance styles, not necessarily what their partners would have chosen for them.

Cheryl and Drew danced the Jive.  It was fun to watch, even if it probably wasn’t that technically good on Drew’s part.  (Score 21, same as last week).

Danica and Val danced the Samba.  Val made the routine very difficult and it showed.  (Score 24, same as last week).

Billy and Emma danced the Tango.  Again, it was pretty bad.  (Score 15, same as last week).

Merrill and Maks danced the Swing.  The judges saw a couple of mistakes in timing, but say she will be around for a while.  (Score 25, one point better than last week).

Candace and Mark danced the Rhumba.  It wasn’t my favorite, and it wasn’t the judges’ either.  (Score 21, 4 points less than last week.)

Amy and Derek danced the Swing.  No matter who it is, Derek always makes his partners look great.  I really enjoyed it.  (Score 24, same as last week.)

James and Peta danced the Salsa.  It was definitely hot, hot, hot.  (Score 25, 4 points better than last week.)

Charlie and Sharna danced the Tango.  Very sensual, but Len says they broke the rules of Tango by having too many breaks of hold.  (Score 25, 2 points less than last week.)

NeNe and Tony danced the Jive.  NeNe has a new hair style and it looks 100 percent better.  NeNe moves well for a larger woman.  (Score 21, same as last week.)

Sean and Karina danced the Salsa.  I feel sorry for Karina getting stuck with him, both personality and dance wise.  (Score 21, one point higher than last week, but too high if compared to NeNe and Tony.)  Doesn’t count anyway because they are eliminated after they dance.

Cody and Whitney danced the Tango.  It was better than last week, but they got generous scores last week.  (Score 22, same as last week.)

Summary of this week’s scores:
25 points:  Charlie and Sharna; James and Peta; Merrill and Maks
24 points:  Amy and Derek; Danica and Val
22 points:  Cody and Whitney
21 points:  NeNe and Tony; Candace and Mark; Cheryl and Drew
15 points:  Billy and Emma (I wonder how long the Force will be with him.)

There seems to be some internal competitions going on between the former child actresses Danica and Candace and singers James and Cody.  Also, I’m sure Merrill and Charlie can’t help but think how they compare against each other.  Interesting dynamics.
Until next week.

    Good morning everyone. Itsssss hump day. I hope you are all doing well today. It’s cold but the sun is shinning. We’re almost there do don’t work too hard and have a great day.

  2. ladebra says:

    I love the internet, what did we do without it back in the dark ages?

  3. ladebra says:

    Gotta read the blogs at work cause I totally over slept, but it felt so gooooood in my warm bed this morning. Thank you for the recaps Empress and BB!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I can relate. 5 more minutes! 10 more minutes! etc.

    • Powell says:

      I rarely over sleep but when I do I hate it cuz it makes me frazzled. I hope you got out the door ok.

      • ladebra says:

        Thanks Powell! I hate it too — I like sitting around waking up with a cup of coffee and ready the blog in the morning 🙂 Oh well, I made it and that will teach me to roll over and think I can snooze for 10 more minutes haha.

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

    I really hope Carole isn’t going to waste the entire season on this alleged ghostwriter storyline. Does anyone take what Aviva says seriously?

    Go on Aviva, keep taking IHate Jill Zarin’s advice on how to be a housewife. As soon as Carole tells Andy she won’t do another season with you on it, you’ll be dropped faster than the BH ratings.

    • mazelnindy says:

      LIKE

    • PJ says:

      This time Aviva may have gotten herself in trouble though. Calling someone names like “white trash” is not nice but slander is another thing. As Carole points out in her blog it is actionable, it will be interesting to if this plays out in the courts. I can’t say I would blame Carole if she did bring attorneys in.

    • Powell says:

      I know Rebecca. Carole knows Adiva has nothing better to do so she needs to just keep it in her memory bank and realize that what she thought about Adiva in the past was proven to be correct when Adiva went this route. I wonder what Adiva’s apology will be at the reunion. Remember how she tried that l at last season’s reunion.

    • Fat Free Buttercream says:

      Co-Sign on every word!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Good call Reebs

  5. mazelnindy says:

    Everyone that writes recaps….A BIG THANK YOU!! I am reading and enjoying them, usually a day late. I really wish there was a like button that I could hit on comments.
    I did just read Kyle’s blog and I do get where Kim is coming from in regards to Lisa. I have a very close friend that has another friend that I perceive as dismissive. She comes off as a very together woman so it bothers me to some extent. In Kim’s case, she is not coming from a very strong emotional base and obviously cannot shake off her perception of Lisa.
    It WAS stupid and hurtful to say that Kim’s hairdresser was hallucinating when he saw her at SUR.
    I believe she was trying to weasel out of being seen on a day that she was supposed to be out of town as opposed to just saying what made perfect sense, that they flew back after an exhausting evening and had a late dinner at SUR.
    I am a big Lisa fan. I get her and she is not perfect but I also can see where someone who is very insecure can misread other’s intentions.

    • ladebra says:

      I’m a Lisa fan, and I don’t have her on a pedestal, but I enjoy her humor and I enjoy watching her on TV.

      I’m not at all sure I would treat Kim any differently. Say a conversation went like this:
      Kim: just answer the question.
      Me: I did. I already answered the question.
      Kim: just answer the question
      Me: I did
      Kim: just answer the question
      Me: I did
      Me …. Get up and walk away

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Lisa did answer the question while sitting on the beach, but Kim didn’t like the answer. Kim is damaged and should really just keep her mouth shut and avoid any arguments with the others; it really makes her look quite confused bordering on stupid.

        • kit9 says:

          Lisa’s denial on the beach was so weak and unconvincing and her behavior there inconsistent with being truthful, Kyle absolutely should have asked her again-this time with Brandi right there. And, Kim didn’t appear any more confused than Lisa did when Kim pointed out she wasn’t out of town, but at SUR during her party. Lisa was mumbling and sputtering all over the place about this flight and that and she thinks she came back early but she’s not sure… wait, Ken, help me!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            sO they didn’t like her answer, and you don’t like the way she answered. too much sputtering and too unconvincing. She can’t control any of that. If she had rehearsed her “lines” perhaps it would have gone over a little better. but it didn’t. So there you have it.

            • kit9 says:

              But she could have controlled it. She could have told the truth about coming back early but she chose to lie. In PR, she could have gone right up to Mauricio on the beach and calmly but firmly said this DID NOT HAPPEN. She didn’t do that. Instead, when face to face with him saying he didn’t know who to believe, she played dumb and said, “about what”? About what?! Wtf had then been talking about all day? Then Ken suggested in front of Kyle and Mo that they talk to Brandi about it and Lisa said no, they shouldn’t do that. That would raise a big red flag in anyone’s mind..someone’s calling you a liar, and you don’t want to talk to them about it? But, that is what Lisa chose to do.

              • PJ says:

                If you ask me all signs of lying, people do have tells and when someone can’t just look you in the eye and say no that did not happen something is wrong.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Kit9, I meant she can’t control how people react to her sputtering and being unconvincing or boring or whatever. She can’t really control that folks don’t like her answers (what she says), the way she answers (how she says it) her interestingness (?) is she boring or not boring. She can’t really control the way people react to her.

                I actually don’t even know what my point is anymore.

    • Cartwheels says:

      IMO this is just the cherry on top of a big trail of dismissive behavior that Kim in her inebriated state has overlooked for several season but she can now see as plain as the day is long.
      I don’t blame Lisa for not liking Kim, but if she doesn’t and never did or had patience for her nonsense then just say so and moved on instead of pretending for three seasons that she actually cared for Kim when she never did.
      Lisa telling Kim at the reunion to stop talking behind her husband back was priceless because it was the height of her hypocresy, isn’t exactly that what Lisa has been doing the whole season with Mauricio?

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        The “don’t talk behind his back” thing was silly-especially since we know Ken was waiting in the wings for his turn as a HW on the couch.
        I agree-Lisa doesn’t care for Kim-so what? Most people who watch can’t stand Kim-but enough with the pretending to care. And how sneaky of Lisa to bring up Kim’s son-that was not cute and it really shows who Lisa is and how she operates. Kim is a mess-we all know this-taking shots at a mess makes Lisa look messy herself. It’s a shitty thing to do.

        • Cartwheels says:

          I thought that was the lowest of the low and a silly punk move from Lisa, Lisa is way too savvy to know that most people have never heard about any problems with Kim’s children because they don’t read internet gossip, so she gets sure to mention it probably looking from a reaction from Kim so they can discuss it in the open.
          Lisa knows what she was doing when she mentioned Kim’s son, she knew that it would generate curiosity as it had and several blogs have already posted about it. I am glad Kim kept her cool when Lisa mentioned that and didn’t go off like Teresa with her “do not mess with my family” which was probably the angle Lisa was going for, to poke Kim is a subtle way to make her go off and look like a total lunatic so I am glad Kim didn’t give her the satisfaction.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            It was a typical Lisa move-she knows exactly how to get things in without actually getting her hands dirty. Same with the Kyle/Carlton thing-I’m so glad Kyle brought that up to Lisa b/c it was the truth. Lisa was all about Carlton over reacting until she saw Kyle talking with Brandi and then she switched-again typical Lisa behavior.

          • trudie says:

            I’m one of those people who have no idea what happened with Kim’s son. What’s the scoop?

          • Powell says:

            Cartwheels you know I think Lisa was tired of being logical w/Kim and just went there cuz that’s what Kim understands.

        • Powell says:

          JNNTJ that’s like on scary island when Sonja said Kelly is crazy and they were arguing w/a crazy person.

        • kit9 says:

          Omg! There was no reason for Lisa to first, actually identify the child, and then to allude to it ‘being something else’. That wasn’t relevant to the discussion or her point, at all. She didn’t have to mention it had something to do with her kids at all! She could have just said that she reached out after hearing she was upset about something before PR. That was her way of trying to get Kim to stfu, imo.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Did it work? Did Kim stfu?

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              No Kim didn’t STFU-but is was a warning shot. It was dirty and shady-not very regal.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Perhaps not, but it’s better or more regal than just shouting “STFU, KIM!!!” If indeed those were her thoughts (can’t be sure about that).

                Too bad it didn’t work. It’s a big LISA FAIL, right?

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yeah, Lisa could have handled that better. She probably felt that she was being attacked since she had already sent her regrets AND a gift…and didn’t choose her words wisely. With some people one must choose their words wisely. Plus, Kim came at her on camera which indicated a clear intent to “expose” Lisa as a bad person to the world. So that could be part of why Lisa reacted and responded in that way to Kim.

      • Kim had an agenda and was making some clear statements against Lisa so I think Lisa had a right to defend herself from yapping Rambles.

        • Cartwheels says:

          Lisa could have defended herself perfectly fine without bringing Kim’s son into the mix. Lisa knows better than that, or maybe not , no wonder she was such a great friend of Brandi , nothing is out of limits for them.

          • Sorry, but if you continue to poke the bear eventually he is going to poke back. I am not sure what has gone on with the son, haven’t read any blogs on it – to me it sounded a reasonable response after Ramble said Lisa never called or spoke to her. I don’t know anything about the son nor do I want to know anything about the son.

            • mrs peabody says:

              SJP totally agree. If Kim doesn’t want things said to her maybe she should watch what she is saying. I actually think Lisa held her tongue quite well, I’m sure there was plenty she could have said. She could very well have told Kim exactly how she felt about her and why and I’m guessing a lot of her feelings have more to do with what Kyle has said to Lisa about Kim’s problems than anything. But why go there on tv, it only hurts Kim and makes Kyle look worst than normal. I’m sure a lot of her feelings about kim have to do with what she saw Kim putting Kyle, Kathy and their families through with her alcohol problems. There is a lot of history with them. I give her credit for even trying with Kim

            • Powell says:

              LOL SJP. Ramble? 🙂 That does describe Kim.

            • kit9 says:

              That Lisa can’t handle a disagreement without going bear on someone speaks volumes about her.

            • PJ says:

              That’s what Lisa is so good at those comments that seemingly are innocent or reasonable but really not so much.

      • PJ says:

        But even Lisa didn’t say she sent her regrets she said she told Kim she would come if she could, that’s different. She could have come but didn’t come and then lied about it. Lisa could have handled that much better–like by not lying. People have Lisa on a pedestal and do hold her to different standards than others, but not heigher standards. In this situation I can see where Kim would be upset at Lisa. Then Lisa again hits below the belt by saying in her blog that most of Kim’s family didn’t come. Lisa in my opinion is not a nice person, she just knows how to play the game. Lisa sort of reminds me of the lead character played by Andy Griffith–Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes–in the movie “A Face In the Crowd.” Just my opinion.

        • Anne says:

          PJ – Do you think any of these women are “nice”? Based on what is shown on television, I don’t think any of them fit my definition.

          • PJ says:

            No probably not. But I find it interesting that Lisa gets a pass by viewers while others get skewered. It’s mind boggling to me because what I see is some very not so nice behavior by Lisa all the time.

            • mrs peabody says:

              and the ladies hold Lisa to a higher standard than they do themselves and give themselves passes for doing the same thing Lisa does. If Lisa does it she gets skewered but if one of the other women do it they let it pass. Point in fact, Yoyo says Kyle has no friends, Lisa says sell your house, Lisa gets called out but no one says a thing about Yoyo saying she has no friends. Everyone has a double standard, it just depends on who you like.

              • Powell says:

                Mrs P I think you hit the nail on the head. The ladies all hold Lisa to a higher standard. Why? And then they expect the same response, same actions. They can’t have it both ways.

              • kit9 says:

                Lisa is the queen of having one standard for herself and another for everyone else. Lisa can talk vicious cr*p about other people’s husbands but nobody can say anything about hers. Lisa wrote a blog a couple weeks ago that was so full of double standards and hypocrisy that I can’t believe she had the balls to write it! Whining about gangs when she was the right there, not just egging on, but participating fully and cackling with glee at the gang ups on Joyce.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I see no one really getting a pass. I see a lot of that wording though, “so and so gets a pass..” “so and so would be crucified if she did that,…etc.” huh? Everyone of them has their share of fans and everyone of them has their fair share of detractors. It doesn’t mean that no one else can see what you see,…we all just don’t care as much about the same things. Is that considered giving a pass? Or just differing opinions?
              bottom line: I just don’t see anyone getting a pass. There’s always someone ready to pounce on the imperfections of these HWs, me included, so I’m not trying to diss you.

              • PJ says:

                Yes they all have fans but Lisa often gets a pass. Just this blog as an example Lisa gets a pass for things that don’t don’t seem to me to be all that innocent. It isn’t true of all the housewives. The part about Lisa RSVP ing to Kim’s party is a good example. Lisa herself does not say she actually did RSVP as such. What she says is that she saw Kim and told her she would come if she could, she then concocts a story and lies. But she gets a pass for this clear, to me, example of lying. People give her a pass saying well she did RSVP that she couldn’t come and she sent a gift, but they overlook the lying part and the part that Lisa admits to that she didn’t say she couldn’t come. The other housewives would not get such a pass, and this is just one example.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  This is what Lisa says about it – in her blog “Yes, I was in Missouri and went to dinner on the way home. . .I have explained this, and sent a gift.” Doesn’t I have explained this, mean sending regrets, explaining why you can’t show up and even explaining where you will be? So Kim gets a pass from you for beating a dead horse. Other housewives would not get such a pass for beating a dead horse. Why can’t she let this go. It was explained, a gift was sent…give it a rest Kim. That’s so annoying. But no, Kim gets a pass for beating this dead horse into oblivion.

                  So maybe you are right,… Some people do get a pass and others do not. Kim gets a pass from you, but if Lisa was hanging on to a perceived hurt and bringing it up over and over again, ad nauseam, you probably wouldn’t give Lisa a pass for that.

                  • Powell says:

                    Lainey I think Kim can’t let it go 🙂 because that’s really all she’s got to hang her that on to crucify Lisa with.

                  • PJ says:

                    Lisa said on the reunion that she told Kim she would come if she could. She could easily have sent a text or simply said I was too tired when she was confronted by Kim, instead she lied about it. Lisa was in town and could have come why not just say that. Brandi said that Lisa said in reference to this that she was busted, I know everyone wants to call Brandi a liar but no one including Lisa corrected this. Whether Lisa went to Kim’s party or not or whether Kim has any other story line or not isn’t the issue. The issue is that Lisa lied and is getting a pass. Why lie, why not just tell the truth? I honestly don’t get it, but to me this shows something unpleasant about Lisa.

            • Anne says:

              I don’t think any of the housewives are getting a pass for bad behavior from everyone. With respect to Lisa, you and others (Cartwheels, Kit9 and Jill come immediately to mind) have been very vocal about your feelings about Lisa’s behavior. I think that we are all entitled to disagree about what we see on television. That is what makes the show, the blogs and the comments interesting.

          They way they described that conversation, it seems like they put Lisa on the spot and guilted her into saying she would come if she got back early enough. We dont know if she rsvpd before or after that convo.

          I also dont think Kim’s hairdresser saw lisa there. I think production told kim to get this petty feud started.

          I think liss bringing up her son was to get her to back off (frankly it was the nicest way she could do it).

          None of these women are pulling punches and turn every small slight into a greek tragedy.

          Kim needs to get put in her place. Shes practically a senior citizen snd she expects to be treated with kid gloves. there is no way shes going through a sobriety program as she continues to not take accountability for her past actions. Moreover she gets belligerent when anyone calls her out on her BS

          • PJ says:

            If any of this is true, and really it is just assuming facts not in evidence, then Lisa should or would have said that instead she lied. Simple.

            • NYC Mama says:

              No one knows what Lisa should have or would have said because none of us are Lisa nor do we know other underlying factors that would make someone react a certain way unless we know then and/or they told us. Just because “you” would do something or react a certain way doesn’t mean that everyone would do the same nor does it mean that they are wrong.

              • PJ says:

                Interesting because everyone seems to know not only what other housewives should and shouldn’t do but also what they think, how they feel, what their motives are, if they are lying or not…………………on and on.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Lisa said she would come if she got back early-she got back early and blew Kim off-no big deal-we have all probably done the same-but Lisa lied to Kim about b/c in my opinion Lisa doesn’t think Kim deserves the truth or a second thought. I know people do not like Kim-but does that mean it’s ok to treat as if she is less than? If Lisa is full of all that BH class wouldn’t she treat everyone with the same respect? Lisa blew Kim off and lied-then she got caught-instead of saying the truth she spins everything and goes on and on about RSVP-ing and being on a arduous journey across the country and buying a Tiffany pen-which really had nothing to do with anything-and then her and Ken throw in how Kim missed plenty of events-again not the point. Lisa is so good at getting the heat off the subject at hand and making people forget that it all comes from that fact that she lied. And it’s not even a big lie-but what she does with it after-that’s where we see Lisa’s true person. IMO

            • LaineyLainey says:

              She obviously didn’t feel that they’d returned early enough to come over. It was her call. And as for anyone forgetting any wrongdoing real or perceived by Lisa. That can’t happen. Not here anyway. No one’s forgetting. I’m not watching the reunion, but from what I’ve gathered no one is able to forget any bad thing Lisa might have done. So no danger there. We will never forget. I know I won’t. I can’t. Just as I will never forget Kyle outing her own sister in the back of that limo. If it seems like people are starting to forget, I’m right here ready to remind everyone. So no danger there, either.

            • Powell says:

              It’s all so stupid though. From Lisa, from Kim, from Yo, etc, etc. It’s stupid. In the future if someone isn’t going to someone’s event they just need to say “Thks for thinking of me and for the invite but I’m not coming.” No further explanation. They all can’t come for one reason or another so they all just need to accept “I’m not coming”.

            • PJ says:

              Then just say that don’t make something up.

          • Powell says:

            mminoc I like what you said. They all have turned the season into a Greek tragedy. The only thing that was tragic was Yo’s illness.

        • Powell says:

          You know what PJ? I’m kinda sick of who didn’t come to who’s party, finger painting, etc. They all don’t make it to everything and none of them should make a big deal out of someone not coming. They all know Kim has substance abuse issues, Yo has an illness or likes to travel w/David, Lisa has multiple biz, and they all have I kids no matter the age and many have husbands that are bizmen and they accompany their husbands to functions/events. It’s time for them all to get over “so and so not coming to my event”. It’s life for God’s sake. None of these parties, trips, events are life altering.

          • PJ says:

            You know what Powell I don’t care whose party they go to or don’t go to either. But there is no need to lie about it.

          • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

            I’m kinda sick of who didn’t come to who’s party, finger painting, etc.
            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
            I’m a little late to this but I could not agree more.. Who gives a shit which party, gathering, lunch, dinner, ritual sacrifice, etc ?

            • PJ says:

              It’s about being truthful not about going to a party. It’s about the way Lisa pretends to be v the way she really is. It’s about Lisa’s willingness to throw others under the bus knowing full well what she is doing.

        • kit9 says:

          It’s Lisa’s Mo, lie first. And, she did it at the reunion-a couple of times and is going to do it again next week where she says that nobody tried to contact her after she left them at dinner in PR..

    • Powell says:

      Mazel I think Lisa should have responded to Kim just as you said and it would have ended the stupidness of it all. I like Lisa too but if she’d just give a logical response to some of these statements instead of saying things as a joke or being dismissive to something that she perceives as not a biz g deal but is a big deal to others then I think Lisa wouldn’t get that she doesn’t care, thinks she’s more important or is dismissive like many of the ladies like to say she can be. Lisa should know by now who she’s dealing with.

    • kit9 says:

      Lisa and Ken have treated Kim like crap all season. Crap. Kim has legitimate complaints about them both. They’ve been nasty and rude. It was rich hearing Lisa whine at the reunion that Kim describing Ken as mean was so horrible. Really? Ken taking shots at Kim’s sobriety and calling her names, though, is a ok. And, that nonsense with Lisa scolding Kim for talking behind Ken’s back? He’s backstage, you idiot! And, it’s the reunion, Lisa, where, you know, you hash things out. Speaking of idiots. It’s funny that Kim is such a dope, such a moron, but it was Lisa that couldn’t figure out that Joyce wasn’t calling Brandi a bully in PS. So, when Lisa is scolding Joyce for doing so, Kim politely tried to explain that she was mistaken. And, what was Kim’s thanks? A condescending brush off.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        The whole dinner scene in PR would have played out very differently if Ken didn’t start fighting with Kim by telling her to “sit back” or “back up” or whatever he said to dismiss what she was saying. Ken wanted everyone to stop talking about it-so he dismissed Kim thinking it would be easy-she fought back and I think it shocked the shit out of him. If he wouldn’t have been so rude-a actual conversation may have taken place.

      • Powell says:

        You all are right. Lisa and Ken are dismissive of Kim. They don’t have patience w/Kim. I think in the future they should just nod politely.

      • PJ says:

        I think they all have legitimate complaints about Lisa.

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

      Kim is always odd, and argumentative, and out of sorts. She makes us uneasy to watch her on tv. I don’t blame Lisa for being so put off by her that she tries to avoid her at all costs. Kim is too mentally unstable on tv, so what do you think she’s like in real life?

  6. Cartwheels says:

    Lisa is very smart in the fact that she doesn’t mind spending all her time during the reunion addressing the petty BS that is Yolanda, Brandi and Kim issues with her, all of them are important to each of them but the bottom line is that it is petty and makes Lisa look great so she is just fine talking about those issues for hours.
    When it comes to her issues with Kyle, then she is quick to move on, with Andy’s help I might add, Kyle has serious issues and Lisa’s shady and underhanded behavior towards Kyle and her husband has much more meat that her petty issues with the other so Lisa quickly dismisses it and when others interject with some nonsense she immediately engages them as a way to veer from the real issues that Kyle has with her.
    It is a shame that Joyce is so naive that she actually took Lisa’s apology at face value, Joyce has all the right to go against Brandi and Yolanda for their horrid behavior against her but Joyce conveniently seems to forget who was also there at every step of the way and did nothing but encourage the craziness. Lisa was there and she fully enjoyed the show, she giggled and she laughed, she encourage and defended awful behavior, Lisa must be thanking her lucky stars that Joyce doesn’t seem to hold grudges because she is another one who can talk about some real issues with Lisa.
    As long as Lisa can veer the conversation to be her against Kim, Brandi and Yolanda, she will happily oblige, everything else needs to be sweep under the rug.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Wow, Carty, you really help me see this in a new way. Seriously!!! yeah, I don’t know if you remember, I was thinking and saying, ” that is SO NOT OK, LISA” when she was treating Joyce so horribly at the beginning of the season. Yes, she IS lucky that Joyce doesn’t hold a grudge.

      • It was definitely unladylike, mean girl behavior that Lisa displayed to Joyce, not appropriate under any circumstances. It doesn’t excuse the behavior, but I think part of it was Botox & Lemons were chirping in Lisa’s ear about not liking Joyce from their early encounters.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Lisa knew that it would look horribly on her so she made peace with Joyce and now out of loyalty Joyce doesn’t call her out and conveniently forgets that Lisa was knee deep in the BS of the dream team.

        • Could it possibly be after she got to know Joyce she was sorry she had made some snap judgements and acted inappropriately? Lemons and Botox came out of the gate against Joyce pretty quickly and certainly chirping in Lisa’s ear, it is possible that Lisa listened to her friends on their opinion of Joyce. Hey, let’s face it Lisa is smart, but I don’t think it is all a chess game and sure she manages situations well, but I don’t think she can manage every second that is filmed. I don’t want to make her a saint, but is she a villain?

          • mrs peabody says:

            no she isn’t and didn’t she do the same with Brandi. She listened to Kyle and then ended up changing her mind after learning more about the game night. She did it with Taylor too.

    • PJ says:

      I agree and I believe that Lisa is a master of deflection. But I do think they all have real issues with Lisa, it’s just that Lisa understands public perception and knows how to deflect very well making it appear as if many of these issues are simply petty. I personally don’t think they are petty at all it’s just that we are missing something in the translation and not seeing the real issues. Again public perception of the others plays a role and I think Lisa knows how to use that public perception to her advantage.

      • trudie says:

        What are their real issues with Lisa? I am not being snarky, I just don’t understand. They have said all season that we will see what their issues are, but all I have seen are her not showing up at Yoyo’s finger painting party and not showing up at Kimberly’s graduation party.

        • mrs peabody says:

          I guess you have to read between the lines like with NJ. I still haven’t figured out what was written between those lines.

        • Powell says:

          Trudie that’s what I want to know. Lisa is submissive of Kim. But I want to know what are the real issues cuz I don’t understand.

        • PJ says:

          It seems that Brandi is upset that Lisa is not the same on and off camera. She mothers Brandi on camera but could care less off camera. This is an attempt to make Lisa look good and Brandi look bad. It seems that Kim Is upset that Lisa pretends to care on camera all the while pointing out Kim’s problems under the guise of caring or joking or whatever but off camera could care less. Lisa brought up the tabloid rumors about Mo on camera pretending to be joking I guess, and in front of their child, she also accused Kyle and Mo of befriending people in order to get the listing on their houses. I could go on but all these things paint a pretty unflattering picture of Lisa in my opinion.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Good points ……

      However I still think producers had an agenda on the cuts and scenes they showed of Lisa – to be sure they caught her cackling at Brandi or Yo at others’ expense. There was an agenda IMHO

      and I don’t do this – but about 3/4 of my closest friends do the “nervous” laugh when someone does something hysterical say, at church, something inappropriate but very funny. They’re not condoning it but the knee jerk reaction is to laugh. Just saying. Not sure if this applies !

      Kyle I don’t know – I’m new to this. She’s just too soap opera for me with her poses and pursed lips and smirks to the camera with lit up eyes. Like she’s doing TAKES. Blech. 👅

      Why does Lisa have to entertain Kim? Be dismissive / don’t the fans GET IT???
      Like joy behar says – so what who cares.

    • kit9 says:

      Such a great point about Joyce having a legit beef with Lisa. Lisa didn’t just cackle and snort with delight at Brandi’s attacks and rude comments time after time but she actively participated on a few occasions as well. In PS, Lisa was all over Joyce for calling Brandi a bully, something Joyce, btw, did not do. And, at SUR, Lisa was on her again, repeatedly telling Joyce to stop it despite the fact that Brandi had started it.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I was very irked by Lisa at that dinner. Didn’t Joyce call her out on it?

        • Anne says:

          I thought that Joyce and Lisa had at least one meeting at Lisa’s house. Joyce has said publicly and in blogs that she and Lisa have resolved their issues. We may not have gotten to see all the details on camera, but I have no reason to believe that Joyce is not telling the truth. In the end, it is up to Joyce how she chooses to handle the situation with Lisa. I think that Joyce is a forgiving person. Afterall, she took Brandi’s apology at face value and accepted it. Based solely on the footage we’ve seen, it looks as if Joyce did not realize the apology was insincere until later, probably after filming ended (with maybe a little hint from production).

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            After that lunch or meeting between Lisa and Joyce-which seemed to go well by what we saw-Lisa talked about Joyce behind her back and made it seem as if the lunch was a tiresome waste of time-Lisa said she couldn’t get a word in edgewise-which from what was shown was not true. Joyce is a forgiving person-that’s all I can say about that!

            • Anne says:

              Well, Brandi seems to have forgiven Kim and Kyle for hiding her crutches and Kim has forgiven Brandi for saying that Kim was a meth addict. I thought both of those things were very mean when they happened. Not that I’m excusing Kim’s alcoholism or the effects that it has had on everyone around her.

              To me, both of those things seem more hurtful and much meaner than things that Lisa said to Joyce.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I have no problem with people being forgiving-I’m all for forgiving and moving on!! But when I move on-I don’t talk crap about the person-I’m either over it or I never talk about them again.

    LaineyLainey – Hope everything goes smoothly for Laineygirl today!

  8. Good morning everyone! AZ had their first dust storm of the summer yesterday. Up early cleaning the pool and decking.
    Love, love, love NY this season. NY gals don’t get stupid sloppy drunk like all the rest of the franchises. Yes they drink but not excessive.
    Loving Heather and Kristen. Hopefully Carole won’t drag out the ghostwriter fight. Aviva book sucks and is getting terrible reviews on Amazon. Proof is in the pudding. Aviva is not a writer.

    Now on to the Spartan Run. Mud runs are grueling. Mentally and physically. You have to train
    for them. I was pissed at Kristen’s husband last night. Kristen is a model. She probably does cardio but obviously she does not lift weights. Her husband obviously does lift weight and often. It takes muscles to get through an obstacle course like a Spartan Run, Legs need to be very strong.
    Trust me, Kristen was in tremendous pain. I am sure the day after she could not move. Two days after the pain is even worse. Kristen’s husband is an asshole. I hate guys like him.

  9. Good morning Everyone!

    Thank you Empress for Blogging RHONY! I got to understand better what was about all that shouting… Please tell me that this ghostwriter thing is over… Lol! I loved Sonja’s dresses and Ramona’s shoes for the baby shower! Certainly Kristen is pretty… by the way her husband behaved … I agree she is not the sharpest, so far… He was nasty to her. Not my fav right now.

    Thanks BB for Blogging Dancing With the Stars! I agree , Nene’s hairdo looked much better this week.

  10. Sending Positive thinking to LaineyGirl! Love and light, sweet girl!

  11. I am up hours too early, but I will be able to pray for for LaineyGirl, so it is a good thing!! I got to see the last half of WWHL. B’s dress was so distracting to me. Ramona looked great and I was proud of both of them for not answering Andy’s questions. B reminded me why I don’t like her, I am liking Kristen and B’s jelly was showing last night, she didn’t get the joke, I think K’s tagline is a riot!! Anyway, I had turned the sound down during the commercial to watch something online and when I looked up Andy was showing pictures of naked men and I did a double take and thought, “I don’t EVEN want to KNOW!!” and I shut off the TV….he needs to get laid so he will shut up about sex!!! IPPHO!!

    • Eastbayca says:

      Actually those “naked men” are raising awareness of testicular cancer on instagram.

      • Oh, Ok, well good for them, I had the sound off and just wasn’t sure I wanted to know. Thanks for the info!! #stillthinkheneedstogetlaid

      • chismosa™ says:

        It’s a good cause and I’m sure enjoyable for some people like Andy, to see – but boy it’s kind of risqué looking / provocative.

        • When I looked up all I saw was naked men with their “slongs” blurred out to look like elephant trunks…I might just have a really good imagination but that is what I saw and just didn’t want to get involved, lol!!

          • chismosa™ says:

            And one had like full on hair !!!!????!!!!!!
            How do they not fuzz that $hit out of the picture for tv. And Andy kept saying co€*

            Bethenny was like “what you can say that what what what ????”

      Bethenny was in a foul mood last night.
      It must have spread to Ramona.

  12. plainviewsue says:

    Can someone please explain to me how you can host a baby shower and invite people that don’t even know the mom to be???

    This actually came up recently for me and a small group of friends. We have a friend that we were once friendly with (through our kids. My youngest son is still close friends with her youngest son). For the past few years (at least five) the only time we see this friend is on New Year’s Eve. Otherwise, with the exception of facebook posts here and there, there is no contact. No phone calls. Nothing.

    So her oldest son got engaged and the engagement party was the night before Hurricane Sandy. We were all invited, not really understanding why. But we went to support our friend and her son, who we all had known. We are also invited to the wedding which we will all go to.

    But then we were also invited to the bridal shower!!!! I don’t know the bride to be at all. None of us do. I always thought that bridal showers are for the bride to be’s closest friends and maybe close friends of the mothers of the bride and groom. Am I totally out of the loop?

    So we got engagement gift, shower gift and now a wedding gift. Maybe times have changed. My bridal shower was over 30 years ago. My friends were there; my futures SIL’s; my mom; my MIL and close friends of my mom who I was close with and saw me grow up.

    Thoughts?????

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I also have issues with invites to events where I don’t know the person(s) who the event is honoring.

      For instance, when inviting people to my children’s high school graduation parties, I invited only those who have actually been involved in my children’s lives and not just friends of ours who never had any interaction with my kids. I feel by inviting those people it seems like I’m begging for a gift.

      It’s very awkward to me to go to events where I only know a person or two and not those who the event is for.

      I with you Sue.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Presumptuous pandering for presents.

      I would send my regrets and a gift card.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        or no gift? But if you’re going to the wedding, I guess, then I would send a gift card.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        or you have brides like my daughter – she wanted to invite the owner of the diner where she and her now ex-husband had breakfast every morning AND the waitress that waited on them….we had a loooong chat about that…the wedding was big enough as it was, but if I had let her invite all the people she wanted – trust me the diner guy was the tip of the iceberg – I’d STILL be paying for it!
        my poor husband – “she’s inviting WHO?” I heard that so many times – I finally stopped telling him…

      • Powell says:

        It kinda is pandering for gifts huh? Do you register for bridal gifts?

      • ladebra says:

        I love a great alliteration!

    • mm in oc says:

      I dont think theres any viable reason to bring a gift to an engagement party. You should just decline the shower invite and go to the wedding. Just make surr you gift value is around the expense to have you attend their wedding. When I worked retail I’d have people come in and buy $20 in pyrex. Not approrpriate.

      • plainviewsue says:

        You can’t go to an engagement party without a gift. Especially when the invitation includes the places the bride is registered!! I wound up not going to the shower this past Saturday cos I wasn’t feeling well, but I did chip in with a friend to get a gift. The wedding gift will be a check.

        I just feel, especially in terms of a shower, old friends of the groom’s mom shouldn’t be there!! It should be intimate.

        I don’t have daughters, but if my sons ever get married, I can’t imagine inviting my friends to a shower who have never met the bride!!! In the meantime, neither of them have a girlfriend at the moment, so I don’t have to think about that. Yet!!!!!!!!

        • mm in oc says:

          Its considered rude to include your registy info on any invitation. No one should expect gifts. However a good gueste doesn’t show up without one. I personally think it’s redundant to buy an engagement gift and a wedding gift. Therefore I wouldn’t show up with one or would t go to an engagement party

    • chismosa™ says:

      That was odd Sue I agree. When Carole said “my friend….Sonja”

      It should be all about the lady of the hour. So odd???

      And men? I don’t get that either – why was heather’s husband there? She probably sent him ! She’s bossy like that with him lol

      I totally agree with you. So strange.

      • Anne says:

        I thought that there were multiples purposes for the baby shower . First, last season there was this storyline about Carole not liking children. That seems to be carrying over into this season with the comments in the TH’s about how Carole is alone and has no one (no husband, no children, etc) so her book and her work is very important to her. The implication is that it is more important to her than to others because she is not a wife and mother. I thought she had a nice moment with Ella (Heather’s daughter). Second, it was an opportunity to show that Carole can host a nice party with food and wine (remember the M & M luncheon from last year and all the comments about Carole not being a good hostess?). Third, it was an opportunity to show Carole’s writing credentials by introducing more of her writer friends (both the woman who was pregnant and Nathan Englander).

        • chismosa™ says:

          I get that. Yes. And I loved how sweet Carole was with the kids.
          I get it. And her apartment is much larger than I thought!

          I don’t understand the men being there. And I don’t get her author friend unless he’s a friend of the pregnant woman’s. (I get people do ‘Jack and Jill’ parties now but meh, ……especially since the woman having the baby may not have a partner!)
          She doesn’t need to prove her literary prowess to any of these women except the idiot FAUX-viva

      • shamrockblonde says:

        about an hour before the start of my sister’s surpirse baby shower, I got a call from her husband telling me that I only needed to put out pink carnations as Dory had had the baby and was resting comfortably! (night before I was trying to figure out if I should keep it just blue and pink or throw in some other colors too) there were no cell phones then and people were on the way from Staten Island and New Jersey and even CT to attend so her husband came in her place – he stuffed a pillow under his shirt and pretended to be surprised! when everyone was there we called the hospital and all yelled surprise!

        I’ve been to baby showers since where it was a couples thing but it always ended up with the boys watching sports somewhere and the girls hanging out chatting about babies and what stroller was best – I like it better when it is just the girls –

        • chismosa™ says:

          That’s so cute !

          Yeah one shower we held once for a relative I think surprised her so much she went into labor the next morning

          How cute of the husband …. Sweet 🍭

        • Powell says:

          That was sweet what you BIL did and you all calling your sis. I don’t mind co-ed baby showers.

    • Orson says:

      Did the invitation read:
      “We’re having a party, isn’t that pleasant?
      Don’t forget to bring a present!”

      • shamrockblonde says:

        my husband would have loved that – short sweet and to the point – everyone else – not so much! LOL!!

    • Powell says:

      Hey Sue. I think your not so close friend just wants to invite you all to everything. You don’t know the bride so if it were me I wouldn’t go to the bridal shower or buy a gift. You attended the engagement party and you will the wedding cuz you know the son.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Powell, I agree with you. I think she wants to invite everyone she knows. The cost of a wedding is astronomical!! I think she just didn’t want to leave any of us out.

        • Anne says:

          Weddings can be touchy subjects when you are discussing the guest list. Years ago, I had a friend who had been widowed young. We were part of a group of single women (some divorced and others never married in their late 20’s/early 30’s). She got engaged to a man who was divorced with a young daughter (maybe 7 or 8). They decided to get married in her mom’s back yard with just family and a few very close friends. Her new husband did not have siblings and his parents were deceased, while she had 2 sisters and several nieces and nephews. She decided not to invite anyone from our group of friends, because they had decided to keep the ceremony so small. Several of our group were really angry, but I did not have a problem with the decision. They didn’t want or need gifts (combining two households).

            Anne I had a similar situation. This was yrs ago when a childhood friend got married. She had a small wedding but she didn’t invite any of us that grew up with/her. She lived next door to one friend, two doors down from 3 sisters, three doors down from my aunt and her mom is my cousin’s godmother. We all grew up together from elementary thru have high school. We went to clubs, parties, the movies, concerts, everyone’s bbq, over each other’s houses and played games etc. To this day none of us or our parents understand that.

            • Anne says:

              Powell — I can understand being upset about your situation. In mine, I had only known this woman for a couple years as part of a group of girlfriends. I think that there ended up being about 20 people at her wedding. All family, except for the groom’s best man. I always tell people that weddings are expensive parties and that I won’t be offended not to be invited.

    • KTinCT says:

      plainviewsue, I can say that it is awesome that you attended events regarding her son, but I absolutely agree that you should have no obligation to attend events for the bride to be, who you do not know or have any history with her or her family.
      I also have a similar sort of question that I’d love some feedback on as I can’t do it on Facebook (for reasons that will become obvious). If I don’t respond to any replies right away it is because I have a four year old and had to chaperone a preschool field trip to the library with 13 four year olds and I’m exhausted but I will respond while I’m awake and check in tomorrow.
      One of my older brothers got married in 2012. My brother and his wife are both deaf and both lost their hearing – my brother at 2 yrs old (terrible accident while I was still in my mom’s tummy) and my sister in law as an infant to tb. My Mom and I threw her a Bridal shower and I literally handed her each gift from all our friends and family and wrote on the back of each card what that guest had gifted. When the shower was over, my brother came in his truck to pick her and the gifts up. I handed him the cards and signed to him that I had wrote each gift on the back of each card for them to write “Thank You” notes. No one ever received a thank you, at all.
      I do want to say that long ago, my brother was a candidate for a cochlear implant and refused it. On his 18th birthday, he took his hearing aids out and has not worn them since. I remember when we were younger, he would turn them off at church because the tone of the singing and deep tones would hurt. He has a small amount of residual hearing – only certain tones and such, but I will say this, you could never sneak up on him when his back was turned. His other senses were truly heightened. I digress…
      They married and again, no thank you notes were sent.
      They are now expecting their first child, a boy, this August, actually with the same due date as my daughter, Maggie. It’s crazy because my daughter and my sister in law (the expectant mom) share the same birthday. I’m thrilled and over the moon for them. Because they were not born deaf, their child will be hearing and all tests have proven this (God Willing) will be a healthy baby boy.
      That being said, I really don’t feel that I should have a baby shower for them because of the lack of gratitude in the past. Like I said, they both have jobs, drive and conduct full lives and do not view their lack of hearing as a disability.
      Am I being cold, I just don’t feel right asking my closest family and friends to do more when they haven’t been formally appreciated for what they have already done?….
      Sorry for the long rant 🙂

          My sweet dearest KT – – -I didn’t read your reply (I know it wasn’t adressed to me, but I still read it and found it very interesting) til super late last night. I read it in my email notification and then couldn’t find the location of it to reply because I was using my iPad. Not sure if that makes sense to you. I am on break at work and wanted to tell you I don’t blame you for not wanting to do another baby shower because of their behavior last time. I’m such a push over, I might offer to write the thank you notes…haha!! But no one should have to do that. I was kind of kidding,…but I am a little bit of a pushover and a lot controlling so I could see myself seriously considering writing the thank you notes FOR THEM. But don’t be like me. It’s wrong. haha!!

          It is so interesting about your bro and his wife. And their first child as you said God Willing appears to be a healthy baby boy. How exciting. So, dumb question but do your brother and sister-in-law utilize ASL? So does that mean that all of you are fluent in ASL? Does your Maggie know how to sign?

          • KTinCT says:

            Awe, thanks for the response, LaineyLainey 🙂 I just don’t feel like its proper at this point. I don’t want to put my family and friends in that awkward position. Yes, my brother started school at the American School for the Deaf in West Hartford, CT. Yes, our whole family took ASL classes as soon as he started. Another yes, we taught Maggie to sign even before she started talking. I would start with the easy signs that would relate to her needs / wants. I started with signs like yes, no, water, thank you, please, sorry, mom, dad, Grammie, grandpa, aunt, uncle etc….
            I find it easier to learn / teach at the earliest you incorporate it.
            Hope LaineyGirl is doing well and not in pain!
            Thanks (((((LaineyLainey)))))

    Worst person on the RH NY last night (new award possibility?): Kristen’s husband.
    Not only for all the “Man up” statements when she was in pain and exhausted (and NOT a man, by the way), but also for his response when Kristen said he hadn’t been straight with her about all that was involved with that race uphill through the mud and jumping fire and getting whacked by people with padded dumbbells. He said that if he’d told her the truth, he knew she wouldn’t have done it!

    I trust my husband to love me and be very truthful with me… not to try to push me as if I were his child (and that would have been bad fathering in my book, too) and sneakily try to make me SEE that I was strong. Help me be stronger, not trick me!

    I was so impressed that she finished the race and was angry – you go, girl!

    It did sound as if Kristin had told him to go ahead during the race, but probably only because he was being horrible to her about holding him back or complaining how hard it was. A decent husband should have stuck with her anyway because he promised – and kept his mouth SHUT and helped her by encouraging and assisting.

  14. What is the “over/under” on Kristin’s marriage? We have seen the “cute arguing” before and it does not end well! I’m sorry. Just my opinion. I think he was a total shit. I am like Kristin (NOT a model) in that this would be TOTALLY out of my wheel house! I would love to “think” I could do something like that but just know myself and am sure I would throw a huge tantrum when my husband moves on to actually have a good time in the race! The nice thing he could have done is get to the finish and not cross line, but go back and finish with Kristin…looks like she was a little over halfway when he was done so he totally could have gone back and helped her. On a side note, I am anxious to see how the issue with her daughter’s walking plays out? Is it more than just needing braces? I thought she was handling this very well and seemed very matter-of-fact about her daughter’s needs and I liked her with her kids.
    We haven’t see much of Mario…editing after the announcement?
    Aviva is a wack-a-doo and I find her SO annoying! I was watching WWHL and I had gotten the impression in the past that Bethenny had brought Aviva in and they were friends, BUT Bethenny was NOT supportive of Aviva last night and was definitely backing Carole in this race. I still find Carole to be very “real” or as real as you can be on this platform. What you see is what you get. I find Heather annoying, but I also think she is who she is on and off the show. I like her.
    Sonja…dear God! I love her. I kinda work for a Sonja type woman. I have been a stay-at-home mom for years (I left my job a few years after my daughter’s diagnosis in an effort to re-prioritize…) Anyhoo…I have slowly been stepping back into the workforce and I started doing administrative work for a friend’s friend. Well, I feel like one of Sonja’s interns! I have sharpened her pencils (prob 200), walked her dog, folded laundry, prepared her taxes, filed all her bills, decorate her house for the holidays, stuffed Christmas cards, create power point presentations, proposals, etc. I was initially offended and felt “dumbed down” but then realized I was being paid “very well” I add, and I was enjoying this ridiculous work so why bite the hand that feeds me? The interns appear to enjoy what they are doing and I am sure they don’t get bored. I am not sure what their majors are and how the skills they learn with Sonja relate to their education, but life skills are always important! That’s my two cents!

    • Eastbayca says:

      From my impressions Bethenny isn’t friends with Aviva. It is just the fact that she has one leg and an ex who has slept with half the cast…that Bethenny told Andy to cast her (Andy might have shown B Aviva’s “please cast me tape”).

  15. HuskerHuny says:

    I have to make a huge confession here . . . here goes . . .

    I also dismiss people. Yes I do and I realize that it’s not very nice. Example – I work with a few people who engage me in conversation about the most idiotic subject and take up a boatload of my limited time while doing my job. So yes, I will say something shady or get out of their space, hoping that it will stop. But these people just don’t get the hint. They go on and on about the stupidest stuff or talk about things that have nothing to do with what I’m doing. Day after day after day . . . my patience wears thin.

    I wish I could be nicer, but I don’t want to encourage them. I don’t enjoy it. I work with a lady who at least once a week asks me what grade my son is in and I have to say, the same grade he was in last week. She’s not a bad person, just not the brightest crayola in the box. And it gets old.

    Kim has issues and they keep playing out. When she talks out of her head, as she does many times, it does wear on a person. Especially asking Lisa to answer the question when the question was answered the first time it was asked. Too bad Kim didn’t like her answer.

    Sorry ladies, but I do feel better for admitting this fault in myself and will try to work on it. I humble myself before you.

    • Somebody at work once told me that “I do not suffer fools well” – I took it as a compliment, but sure it wasn’t meant that way. So I guess I am with you on this!

    • I completely understand. I have limited focus and patience. I had a neighbor that I would avoid because she would blather. #blathersomewhereelse #goawayandleavemealone #youaredimissed #itsyounotme

      • PJ says:

        Oh my goodness I have the same neighbor. She talks at you not to you and she goes on and on and on. I always try to avoid her because if you get trapped into a conversation there goes an hour of your time you will never get back. I don’t mean to be dismissive but maybe I am.

        • Fortunately she moved, lol! But seriously my head would spin. She is one of those people that gives every stinking detail and then pauses to go over the detail, to make sure she got it right. But by that time I would realize that I needed to get away!! I also had a neighbor that had no sense of “personal space” and would get right up in my face when she was talking, lol. It would be like a dance, as I would try and get my “bubble” back!! Come to think of it….it was the same house….the present neighbors are great, rarely see them and they are quiet.

          • PJ says:

            Lol. One day this neighbor came to her dining room window and started banging on the glass and screaming at my husband to shut our dog up. The thing is we had long since sent our dog to live with our daughter and we had no dog at that point. It was another neighbor’s dog down the street on the other side of her house and my husband said he did hear the dog but it was like five little woofs not full on barks. Oh well it talks all kinds and I want to have good relations with neighbors just don’t want to be trapped into a conversation/ lecture talking at me for an hour while I desperately plan my escape.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Haha! Close talkers,…the worst. Like the sidlers!

    • Shiny says:

      Not a fault – it’s a survival skill!

      I was trying to remember whether Kim was even sitting with the women during the beach conversation where Lisa answered. That shows how much I dismiss KIm 😉

      And if she was there, maybe she can’t remember that she heard the answer – she doesn’t seem to remember very well even after becoming sober. (Proud of her becoming sober, but she’s pretty limp in most other ways…..)

      But she was far too aggressively part of that dinnertime conversation for someone who wasn’t there at Brandi’s house. (I almost wrote: and wasn’t at Palm Springs, but then I remembered that she had the bathroom door shut on her to preserve privacy about her panties being bunched….that’s how little impression she made on me during that episode.)

    • trudie says:

      I am a dismisser too. I was just having a conversation with an old friend last week who told me that she couldn’t “drop” a friend no matter how miserable they made her life. I told her I have absolutely no problem with that. Life is short and I refuse to be dragged down because of another person.

      I have told this story before… For years I was friends with a woman, let’s call her Wendy. Wendy would call me every morning at 8:15 and tell me all about what was going on in her life. She would never ask about my life. At one point my oldest daughter had to withdraw from college because of depression. All my friends knew this. Wendy still called me every morning and never once did she ask about my daughter. I put up with this for a couple of years, occasionally ignoring her calls. Then my dad went into the hospital for the last time. Again, my friends all knew this. On his last day, we made the decision to bring him home from the hospital so he could die in his own bed. I texted this information to all my friends, and asked that they keep Dad and all of us in their prayers. Wendy’s response: “Do you still have those textbooks you were going to give me? School starts in two weeks and I am going to need them. I can pick them up some day this week. Sorry about your dad, but he has lived a good life.” After that, I completely cut Wendy out of my life and I have no regrets.

      • OMG!!! Wow!! “Wendy” is a piece of work. About 6 years ago I finally “got it” that there are people that call you and want nothing from you but to be your friend and then there are the people that call you under the guise of friendship but always end up wanting something. I’m a giver, but I have learned to say “no” with no regrets or guilt! I have found that after a few “nos” those people magically disappear from your life.

        Oh, and my friends know not to call before 10am!!!

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

        I had a Wendy too! She was a friend that I hung out with a LOT. Then she got a married boyfriend and everything was about him. I got tired of her blaming his (still) wife for not letting him go. My dad got sick in April and died in August. I was still hanging out with her during this time and had confided in her. When he died, I sent out a mass email to alert as many people as I could to thank them for all their prayers and well-wishes. This friend left a voicemail while I was on the plane to the funeral. I picked it up when I landed and she had the nerve to say that if she knew how sick he was, she would have tried to be a better friend. Then it was a five minute ramble about the boyfriend. Needless to say, I never returned her call.

        • Powell says:

          Good for you for never returning her call.

        • trudie says:

          The funny thing about people like Wendy is that they just don’t get it. My Wendy went so far as to call my daughter to ask her why I was mad. She was sorry my dad died, but she “really needed those books.” My daughter told her to eff off. Of course, then Wendy told all our friends how rude my daughter was.

      • Powell says:

        See trudie Wendy would have ended up buying her own book for school cuz I never would have responded to her text. And I never would have spoken to her again. She wasn’t a true friend to you. She was a friend of her own convenience.

        • trudie says:

          Powell, I received her text as I was sitting at a stop light, following the ambulance taking my dad home. I promptly pulled over and sent this response: “Are you phucking kidding me? My father is dying and you are asking me about textbooks? I don’t know what books you need nor do I care. I suggest you find another source. And yes, my father has lived a good life, that doesn’t make losing him any easier.”

      • I know I am late to this post but I HATE WENDY!!! I’m sorry she did that to you!! How is your daughters depression??

      Kim wasn’t talking out of her head when she was correctly pointing out that Lisa misunderstood that Joyce hadn’t called Brandi a bully. Kim was right and Lisa was wrong. But, Lisa was rude and dismissive of her. Kim was also was correct when pointing out that nobody had accused Lisa of buying the magazines or bringing them to B’s house, something Lisa was oddly denying but Ken jumped down her throat anyway. Both cases, Kim was right and wasn’t incoherent or blabbering on about turtles.

    • Powell says:

      Well Husker I think you’re doing something cuz they keep doing the same thing. I think you’re got to have to just lay it out on the line and say you don’t have time for these types of convos.

    • I think we all get to a point in our lives that we don’t have the time or energy to deal with superficial people. We want to surround ourselves with individuals who make us happy. I dropped 3 friends after many years recently. I am very happy about my decision.

  16. Eastbayca says:

    I want to intern for Sonja, just for a week or two to demystify her need of so many interns.

    • I think Sonja is one of those people that feels she always need to be with people…she must always have a posse. I bet she is never alone in her house…

      • Shiny says:

        I think she is so addicted to the image of herself as fabulous and wealthy that she has to have interns hovering to continue the illusion that she’s so important still that she needs assistants (even if she doesn’t pay for assistants).

        I do think Sonja is a hoot and quite gorgeous in her hairstyles and dresses, but she is living in an odd fantasy land of being a Brand and not having to actually DO something as a job or promoting one set of products to support herself.

        Selling that house and moving into an apartment would make more sense, but “sense” doesn’t seem to be her strong point, and that’s worked for her for years, so why would she decide to change (what the rest of us would call “growing up and being realistic”.)

      • Powell says:

        Sonja has said many of the interns mothers ask for their kids to intern for her. But I think Sonja likes to pretend that she has so much going on that she needs so much help. What does she need interns for? She has a housekeeper right? Her daughter is in school. All Sonja does is party and throw a party here and there. No interns needed.

      • Sam says:

        Yes, he’s been a respected editor for several years. He was an associated editor at the New Yorker for a while, and then for about 20 years he was editor-in-chief at Atlantic Monthly. The only reason he left there was because it was sold to someone who brought in his own editor, and I think he still occasionally does freelance editing.

    • Powell says:

      Oh lordy Sam. Let me read on.

    • Powell says:

      Well Sam thks for posting. It answers my question I asked earlier about what Adiva will say at the reunion. Now she doesn’t go alone w/the stupid fight. So I guess it’s the producer’s fault. I really hate that so many times these ladies let the pur put an idea or bug in their ear and they just do or say stupid stuff. I don’t care if it’s their “job” or they’re “getting paid”. Have brains enough not to get manipulated by the producer’s or say totally outlandish things.

      • Shiny says:

        MIght be the producers’ fault, but Aviva may have called it stupid when she also realized that the “stupid fight” was going to out her as using a ghostwriter and lying about it. She deflected the conversation with others every time it started to come back to her writing a book…Turtles, I see turtles.

      • Sam says:

        You’re welcome! And I agree that she’s going to blame it on someone else when she’s at the reunion — or, like Shiny suggests, she’ll try to deflect. Maybe she’ll show up at the reunion taping with a pair of baby turtles in her pocket!

  18. mrs peabody says:

    I liked the scene with Ramona and her daughter and her talking about when her daughter leaves. Of the 3 we have seen recently I have enjoyed hers the best, it seemed the one I could relate to best. Kim is just to dependent on her child and Yoyo seems to obsessed with hers, Ramona seemed normal. As far as the BH reunion all it is again is another gang up on Lisa, if they have problems with her they need to sit down with her individually off camera and talk to her, if they don’t get the resolution they are looking for then move on. You can be friendly when you need to but not friends.

    • We have watched Avery grow up. I remember her being embarrassed by how short Ramona’s dresses were, lol!

      Why wasn’t Mario there ? Or the other parents ? Or the dates?
      My house was chosen as the pre- get together for T H E prom – it was so fun posing for pics and all that jazz. The limos and busses came to my house.
      Maybe they were going somewhere else also?

      Not a fan of mullet dresses but avery looked lovely.

I wish I hadn’t listened to them now. Because I have very few pics. from their proms. A word to younger moms…don’t listen to them…go anyway, take pictures til you pop because they are your kids and they don’t think about the pics and the other parents who promised you they would take pics for you are only focused on their own kids (which I understand). But don’t listen to the “no mom, you’ll embarrass me…”

      I don’t get why they keep trying to coerce Lisa into being their real friend if they think she is so self absorbed and shady. Surely Lisa has no desire to be friends with these needy bitches who have already shown themselves to be so vicious and untrustworthy. Lisa is holding all the cards and they damn well know it.

    • Powell says:

      Ramona has seemed like a normal mom that’s going to miss her girl. On epi 1 when Sonja said Ramona needs to get over it I thought Sonja won’t miss her daughter cuz Sonja seems to be apart from her much more than Ramona is from Avery. Sonja is out trying to find a man all the time. Oh and she’s working on her toaster oven, lingerie line, handbag and clothing line, table clothe and dinner ware line.

  21. chismosa™ says:

    Just what I watched while watching WWH which I thought was going to be so funny based off everyone here – letdown 😦

    Bethenny didn’t want to talk about the divorce because “it’s not best for Bryn” yet she always noted how she wanted to discuss her divorce when starting her talk show. Give me an effing break 
    Nice change around.

    I found Ramona subdued because she was sick and also to let Bethenny be the star. That’s why I would have preferred Ramona alone or with someone else.
    This makes me ramotional that I couldn’t get the full Ramona experience. She barely spoke ! It was for the star of the hour. 🚽🚽

    Bethenny’s body language was odd. She looked exhausted and her arms were crossed and her body wrapped up looked very closed off. She needs to sleep and eat something.
    I saw a tweet she sent out that I think was Bryn eating and the kitchen was HUGE – it was not the kitchen of the apt she has with Jason. I wonder if that’s her rented one. Or if that’s only a lovenest.

    She looked very thin so it was smart to wear a print. Adds weight. 
    Sorry to say but Ramona looked healthier and better to me, even somewhat younger ! —- than Bethenny! No wonder Andy was yelling at her for answers on what she does !??she looks fab. Her skin, her arms, her legs. She looked much better!

    I was shocked at the poll! Only 50%+ for bethenny? ROTFL
    Maybe these polls are honest ???

    DEAR EVERYONE: LAINEY GIRL JUST TEXTED ME. SHE MADE IT! She said “I MADE” “SO EASY” ha ha. She’s somewhat intelligible, too. I’m sure she meant “I made it”

    I am so relieved. Thanks everyone for your prayers, positive thoughts and concern. I shared with her last night that she had some prayer warriors in her corner and she was very happy and grateful. As am I. THANKS AGAIN!!!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Yay ! So happy to hear. I’m glad. How many days is like, recovery?

      I never understood why I never got wisdom teeth – or why some people’s need to come out and others’ don’t? Is this genetic, as teeth generally are …

      Sorry, deep thoughts by Jack handy.

      These are the moments I miss Nancy again :/

      • LaineyLainey says:

        hahaha! u crack me up! She said 48 hours. My husband has wisdom teeth but there was plenty of room in his mouth for them to emerge nice and straight. My daughters were growing in side ways. the top ones are growing straight, but if left in they will grow long looking for it’s mate and then that leads to other problems, like biting your cheek a lot which can be very painful. So my kids’ orhodontist said that he sees this a lot, where the parents are extremely different in height, so they (like my kids for example) will have big ole teeth (because they are tall) but they might inherit a small jaw (from mom). It was just an observation he made and shared with me when they were young.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Wow ! The difference in heights affecting that is so interesting to me…. Thanks! Sorry I love medical info ….
          I have to tell my bf- she’s like 5’0 – 5’1 and her hubby (who I don’t kiss on the lips lol!) is 6’3 or so…..
          ((And interestingly her 2nd son had to get leg braces like Kristen on the Ny show’s daughter did. ))

          My bro and I are hugely taller than both my parents (and my father just measured at 5’6 so it’s true people shrink! I’m shocked, he was about 5’9 when younger)
          But I have such a round head so I think my CHICLETS had plenty of room. I think.

          Sorry for tangent ////

          So happy she’s well. Rest up Lainey girl. No strenuous activity !

        • Powell says:

          I’m glad she’s doing well. My experience wasn’t good. I had to have mine extracted in the hospital cuz apparently my jaw is small. The dentist didn’t want to chance me being in his office under anesthesia for a long time. I looked like a chipmunk and got an infection on one side. Oh yes. I had both extracted at the same time. I remember since I couldn’t eat I craved hotdogs and sauerkraut. LOL. When I could chew my mom cooked me hotdogs and sauerkraut. 🙂

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Oh my gosh, that sounds like a nightmare, Powelly. ugh. So glad that the doc told her everything came out easily and she should have no problems. she just texted me and said that this is the first time in 5 days that she’s not in pain.

          • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

            Powell your experience is similar to mine but I had to end of getting some speech therapy due to nerve damage to my bottom lip and chin. Such fun. I still don’t have complete feeling on my left side. And, there is still part of a tooth in the jaw as it was growing sideways and the dentist couldn’t get it out.

    • Fat Free Buttercream says:

      Great!!!

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

      Oh that’s great to hear. I hope she sleeps and sleeps and wakes up with no pain.

    • Shiny says:

      glad to read it – she’ll feel the pain later, but she’ll cope since she’s your girl. Do remind her to take perfect care with the salt water rinsing etc. – my son thought he didn’t need to.. dry socket taught him otherwise….

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Hi shiny! Yes, we got off the ph about an hour ago and she said she is doing gentle rinsing with warm salt water. So far, so good, shiny!

    • mm in oc says:

      great news!

  23. chismosa™ says:

    VV——
    What is this about ?????
    Much thanks 👍

    • VV™ says:

      Moe called Lisa an effin b*tch in Puerto Rico. Not to her face of course because he’s a coward like his wife. He said it to spacecadet Kim when Kim was lying to him about Lisa putting the magazines in Brandi’s suitcase.

      • chismosa™ says:

        WORD. #pansy #🌸

      • Cartwheels says:

        He certainly did not call Lisa that, he was referring to the situation not Lisa, Lisa certainly has been an efffing b*tch when it comes to Mauricio, talking about his integrity and business ethics and then using every opportunity to talk about the cheating rumors so I am glad to see that both Kyle and Mauricio are finally going to stop playing the fence with the Todds and are taking a much more firm stand to defend their names.

        Kim called Ken an grumpy all man and it was nasty and vicious in Lisa,s eyes, something her husband didn’t deserve because he wasn’t present so I ma not sure how Lisa justifies all the trash talk that she has done at Mauricio’s expense. Of course the rest are nasty and vicious haters but Lisa is only joking. Queen of the double standards.

        • chismosa™ says:

          I just have a personal disgust of any man saying bit€h let alone with the F in front.

          Ken or any man could have been calling Brandi(!!!) that and I’d still be grossed out.

        • Powell says:

          I just think that Lisa and Ken can have their feelings about Mo being friendly for real estate if they want but I think they should have kept it between the two of them. I do think Mo would like to get RE biz from friends but I don’t necessarily think he becomes friends to get the biz. I think Lisa/Ken saying Mo wasn’t that friendly w/A & P before he sold their home isn’t true. From S1Mo, Ken, Paul and when they could finally get Russell to hang out they did. Of course A & P saw Mo more when he was selling their house cuz they had business to do. Same for Mo w/Lisa & Ken. After the biz was done of course Mo wasn’t in contact w/them the same way. The biz is done. He’s busy they’re busy. So although I think Lisa & Ken were/are wrong they can perceive it any way they like but they should have kept that to themselves.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I’ll bet he’s gonna get a passsssssss. I can feel it!!

        • VV™ says:

          He did say it and he certainly will get a pass.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Who is giving out all these passes???

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Oh right, now you ask….LOL…I don’t know where the passes are,…but, that’s the rhetoric here by those who do not like Lisa. It’s what I’ve been wondering for sometime now,… why some people (maybe you) say Lisa gets a pass, etc…what? huh? who? where? So if someone can understand Mo’s reaction, and expresses their support of him,… then HE’S GETTING A PASS, TOO! passes for everyone. You get a pass! You get a pass! YOu get a pass! He gets a pass! She gets a pass! We all get passes!!! (ooops now I have gas)

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I don’t know about all these passes but I do know about something being ok for one HW and not ok for another-is that a pass or does that mean I just like one HW more than the other? Idk?

              • LaineyLainey says:

                I don’t know either. But both camps (pro – Lisa and anti-Lisa) often talk about Lisa getting passes. It is 10:14 pm central time. I will no longer obsess about passes nor mock those who do. From this moment on….as God as my witness…no more talk or mocking of real or perceived passes.

      • Powell says:

        Oh Yes.

    • kit9 says:

      She ‘forgot’ about it because she knows it’s true.

      • Cartwheels says:

        LOL

        I am most looking forward to the last part of this reunion because it seems as if Kyle has finally has enough and finally will call a spade a spade and will confront Lisa to her face about the BS she has been talking about her husband and about her too.
        Lisa and Kyle will never be friends again, Lisa knew that a couple of years ago and it is about time that Kyle catches on that fact. Now all the niceties need to be over between these two and maybe and only maybe Kyle can become a more worthy opponent of Lisa.

    glad that your angel is ok Lainey!! – now – exhale! — give her my love and tell her to have lots of chocolate – or vanilla – shakes – delicious, easy to manage and filling! – the best part of having those teeth pulled – at least it was for me!

    *hugs LaineyLainey really hard*

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Thank you! She’s a bit lactose intolerant – the poor dear. But she did stock up on some pressed juices and made herself a big pot of veggie soup. Last night she pre-made some little ice packs too (thanks Pindy). The young heal so fast, I’m looking forward to a quick and uneventful recovery. 🙂

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Thanks AZ girl, just got off the phone with her. She’s just doing sooooo welllll! Mom is happy. No swelling yet, we’ll see what tomorrow brings. Fingers crossed!

      • chismosa™ says:

        She should try almond milk or rice or coconut milk / water. That’s all the “rage” now

        I’ve been reading up about how we’re the only mammals to continue to drink milk after being weaned off our mothers.
        And how wrong dairy is. I’m slowly trying to ….. As many here are doing with housewives…. Detach from milk.

        Cheese is difficult. I’m greek :/

        • I love almond milk and going to try coconut milk too, but didn’t see any in my grocery with no sugar. I am trying this new paleo type eating plan that is supposed to be good for MS and she says no dairy, but I cheat and add a little cheese because it is just so darn good!

          • chismosa™ says:

            I have the bottle of trader joes unsweetened almond and have YET to try it! Lol
            I’m so chicken ……

            Put it in coffee ?????

            POWELL—->>> my giant ICED COFFEE !
            It’s 37 degrees where I am ! Hahaha

          • Powell says:

            Chismosa and SJP I’d like to try coconut milk. I’m not big on substituting foods. If I want bacon I want pork bacon not Turkey bacon. If I want hotdogs I want kosher/beef hotdogs not Turkey dogs. If I want a hamburger I want a beef burger not a turkey or tofu burger. I’m not that much in love w/turkey anyway. I’m not a substitute or imitation kinda girl.

            • I don’t mind turkey bacon if it is very well cooked, but also trying to avoid nitrates and gluten these days and eat real food. Lots of veggies (9 cups a day) and wild salmon/grass fed beef if possible. The less processed the better.

              • Powell says:

                I love veggies too.

              • I’ve been gluten free since, I think June….it has made a huge difference in my stomach problems and my joints! Sugar free too…for the most part, an occasional chocolate bar which is amazing since I was a sugar addict!!!

                • Powell says:

                  I eat candybars every now and then, I don’t drink soda except for gingerale when I’m not feeling well, don’t use sugar. I cut my sugar intake yrs ago. I mostly treat myself occasionally to ice cream or a pastry on Sat or Sunday twice a month.

                • I have been back on it about a week pretty hard core and it is amazing how when you cut the gluten and sugar how much your cravings go down. Glad you are doing well on it. I did find a Lindt chocolate bar that is 90% cocoa, I like to put small chunks in my mouth and let it slowly dissolve. It is a little bitter but lowest sugar content that I have found.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  WOWZA, good for you, PP.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Powell I’m the same as you. I’m like that about lowfat/nonfat.

              I won’t eat lowfat cheese. Lowfat greek yogurt. Lowfat BS snacks. I prefer the full fat stuff. They say it satisfies you more. So you crave less.

              I’m with you on the bacon and the hotdogs and that stuff. Though I do like turkey.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Yes, I’ve been hearing more and more that all that lowfat or fat free stuff I’ve been all of my adult life is what’s making me fat. Hmmmmmm

        • LaineyLainey says:

          She uses almond milk in lots of stuff.

        I have the greatest recipe ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        I substitute gluten free flour in these cupcake, and for the frosting I use coconut milk and some cinnamon. I’m not a celiac and I’m not a vegan, and these are still probably my favorite cupcakes. I bring the all the time for treats and everyone just thinks they’re just rich, chocolaty cupcakes.

          Thanks, REEBS – I’m gonna make these for my nephew who has lots of issues…chrohn’s they think. He really struggles.

  26. HuskerHuny says:

    Watching Ramona and Avery getting ready for prom made me think back to my son’s senior prom.

    He informed me that he was going to prom the week before and that he had a date. I asked him about wearing a tux and he said no, it was not necessary and that his date got her dress at a second hand store. O.K., that’s cool, odd, but cool.

    Se he wore his church pants, dress shirt and one of his dad’s ties. His shoes were horrible, but he didn’t want to spend the money of dress shoes, so he brought home a pair of black Chucks. I asked him if he need to order a corsage and he said his date wasn’t going to get him one, but I told him every girl needs a flower on her prom night – so we ordered flowers.

    He met his date at a friend’s home where four couples were going to meet and go together. One boy shows up alone and without his date. He said she called him that day and broke up with him, but he still wanted to go. By the looks of the pictures of the dance, it looks like he and my son danced together more than my son did with this date. He had a blast at the post prom party as well.

    And that’s what prom should be about – having a great time and not spending a lot of money to have it. New shoes, corsage, dinner, dance tickets, it probably cost less than $100. My friend just paid over $400 on a prom dress for one daughter and she hasn’t shopped with the second one yet. Holy moly!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Very sweet and yes that’s what it should be!
      My friend and I didn’t have proper dates, so we took our 2 male friends !

      Much fun

    • Shiny says:

      My daughter wasn’t interested in prom, and her coed group of friends felt pretty much the same, so they all arrived at my house in a crowd to play games and cards and stay up all night (while the official after-prom party went on around the corner in a big field). Cheaper and unpaired fit this group of kids, and they certainly laughed through the whole night at home.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Cute story, HH

  27. Eastbayca says:

    Saw this on Vulture’s comment…RHONY.
    From Aviva’s book describing Reid, not nice;
    “I took a closer look at him. Turned out, he was nerdy. He wore pleated khaki shorts with a cell phone clipped to the belt and a tucked-in T-shirt. If he’d been wearing white socks with Teva sandals, it would have finished the look. I took him for a professor or an engineer. He had a handsome face. Dark hair and eyes, perfect teeth. He looked like a nice Jewish guy. His body was just my type. Tall, built, dark, and masculine.”

    • LaineyLainey says:

      It’s not so bad to me.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I don’t see Reid as tall and built ? Or even very masculine lol

      Doesn’t Aviva tower over him???

      I want more juice from the commenter who said all that stuff about Aviva last week! Juicy 🍊!

    • Powell says:

      I don’t think that’s bad. To me she’s describing her immediate visual impression. What he had on her impression was right on to me. She went from him looking nerdy to a nice looking guy.

  28. jeang says:

    Just saw news of huge fire in Boston. Hope we hear from Boston that her fiancé is okay. The news says some firefighters are trapped in basement.

  29. Cartwheels says:

    Regarding the issues of the ladies with Lisa, IMO they are:
    Yolanda – Yolanda was dumb enough to actually believe Lisa is her proclamtions last reunions that she has found two wonderful friends in the franchise, friends forever and for real so Yolanda thought that her real friend Lisa should have visited some more, Yolanda failed to realize that Lisa would only be her best friend when filming was being done. Then Yolanda already felt that Lisa liked to point the faults in others specially when cameras were rolling and Lisa’s busy schedule didn’t allow her to participate in events that Yolanda organized but when it was Lisa organizing Yolanda was there. Yolanda is a hypocrite because she is a self-centered and arrogant woman who thinks the world evolves around her so IMO her claims are just petty BS, change your denomination , expect nothing from Lisa and call it a day.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I don’t think Yo honestly thought that of Lisa. I think she always secretly had it in for Lisa.
      Not sure though

      • I suspect she is a little jelly of Lisa’s relationship with Mohamed – just my opinion. And I can’t stand Lemons but I think with her wacked out Lyme brain I am not sure why she was going what she was doing which is why she shouldn’t have been on tv like when Rambles was drinking she shouldn’t have been on tv.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Who came up with Rambles ? That is hysterical!

          Yes —>> others have pointed out that Yo lemon drop has issues with Lisa because of Mo and Mo’s big love & respect for Lisa.

          I don’t know about the Lyme brain and what that’s done to her. Was she much different last year ? This is my first time watching BH

          • Chismo – I think I stole Rambles from someone here, it just stuck with me.

            I do think Lyme does effect the brain, but it is no excuse for bad behavior and if you have a disease get the f off tv – just saying.

            Stevia – I am trying to stay away from sugar so at least stevia is natural. Stevia is very concentrated so small amounts go a long way. I have tablets and liquid that I got off amazon and use that in my tea and smoothies. Oh and totally agree about low fat/non fat and firmly believe it is not fat in products that make you fat but what you what you are eating and combining your food with. While I am doing this paleo thing for my brain (MS) I think it will help me with my weight.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Oh SJ, I hope it does help. Warm wishes for that end of it at least …..



              The blog has a diet and health page, don’t know if people have been posting much of late but I will definitely bring it up to you there —

              Stevia – I don’t trust ANY that are in supermarkets. Even TRUVIA is a trick and I believe has chlorine in it.

              I’m full sugar right now (never fake) – but I want to go to stevia but then I heard you need to have the full leaf extract. Just having something that says “stevia” is not enough. Ughhhh
              The more research I do, the more my head hurts

              Well I want to go and work on the rice/coconut/almond milk situation for these protein smoothies I’m working on. I’ll try to bring this to the health page (above, one of the tabs) so as not to clog up here. Maybe this weekend I can get to it.
              I want to know how best to proceed. It’s a jump going from 1/2 and 1/2 or 2% to a FAUX milk.

              Ok TBC…. Thanks for your help today. And good luck to you

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Good for you SJP – I did Paleo this summer and lost 15 pounds, but even better than that I felt so much better. I am such a carbaholic (bread wise) that it’s very hard for me to stay on it.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Rambles is funny!!! Somebody said ..”gravel gravel” the other day…I about died. So funny. You guys amuse me.

  30. Orson says:

    Here’s my perception of Kimberly’s Partygate:

    Kim invited all the ladies and more people. Lisa RSVP’d she had prior commitments, sent a gift, and said “Maybe if there’s time after I return I’ll stop by.” I don’t know how one ruins a party by not attending. She was spotted in the city in time to attend the party that she already RSVPd she wouldn’t attend. I don’t see the issue. Brandi and Carlton did a drive by; they ate Fatburgerz on the front steps and stayed long enough to ascertain there was no alcohol being served and for Brandi to vomit in a toilet, then they split to get drunk somewhere. Did Kim’s sister Kathy and her nieces Paris and Nikki even attend? They blow off Kim and Kyle party invitations left and right. I think it’d be more important family attend stuff than coworkers you’ve only known 4 years and only work with 4 months out of each of those years.

    But, Kim wanted to jump on the attack Lisa Bandwagon and needed a hook. Lisa is condescending towards Kim? Hell, EVERYONE on the cast is. But how dare someone push back at her!! I don’t know what sort of 12 step program she’s in, if she’s in one, but most of the ones I’m familiar with deal with actions having consequences.

    Oh, and the party was for Kimberly, right? I don’t believe for an instant Kimberly could give two poops about whether any of her mother’s castmates showed up or not. She was probably more worried that someone would have brought some booze to slip into her mother than people she hardly knew attending or not. She didn’t seem to care enough to send a “thank you” for the gift, did she?

  31. Cartwheels says:

    Brandi issue with Lisa have more to do with her own insecurities.
    At this point I don’t think she was trying to even backstabbed Lisa with her comments to Joyce, I just think that she was putting a bait for Joyce to have a conflict with Lisa because she never liked Joyce since the get go and was afraid that she would be embraced by Lisa as the newbie of the group.
    I think the main change came after the tampon string gate when Lisa abruptly stopped calling Brandi , for someone as paranoic as Brandi this was a huge flag, Yolanda stood by her and even subtely tweeted her support while Lisa only tweeted that her phone was not working. Then to hear that Lisa is having Scheana’s proposal done in her house it probably all her paranoias started to flare.
    Their relationship was bound to sink anyway bcause it was never a friendship but a relationship of convenience on both ends so IMO Brandi’s issues with Lisa are born from her own paranoia. I figure the embarrasment of those pictures was intense for Brandi and as the needy person she is needed a lot of reassurance and Lisa’s withdrawal came at the worse time for her.
    I figured that when those pictures came out Lisa finally saw the light, not in terms of Brandi’s breandown but in terms of how would it affect her image and her wise move was to move away from her but when a relationship is based on the desire to bring their enemies down, then secrets are bound to become public. I do believe that Lisa and Brandi were together in a plan to bring the magazines in Palm Spring but she has been really lucky that Brandi and her own insecurities and lying have made her totally unreliable.
    When it comes to Lisa and Brandi I totally believe that the issue of the surrogacy, the fake lawsuit, the cheating allegations, the bullying of Joyce all of it was not organic but part of an orchestrated plan to get rid of the castmates they didn’t like.
    Lisa should always remember that if you lie with dogs you wake up with fleas.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Great comment. And you bring new insight to the Brandi v. Joyce thing, too.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Brandi IMO is exhausting as a friend and Lisa should have been the first one to set bounderies with her but the daily phone calls became the norm and then suddenly Brandi fals out of grace and the calls stop , that for someone as paranoic as Brandi sure was like a huge deal. Add that how close Lisa became with Scheana , how she was trying to bond with Kyle again and how she was in good terms with even Joyce and Brandi saw the writing on the wall.
        As Brandi has said herself, she dumps them before they dump her. I guess she was referring to more than guys.

        • Shiny says:

          When I saw next week clip of Brandi saying “you can only save one in a fire, do you save Shena or me?” I immediately thought – I save Shena because she doesn’t play games that I can only be friends with one person as if this is middle school.

          • Orson says:

            I like this version of the question; “Scheanna and Brandi are in a fire and there’s only enough time to save one of them. Would you take a nap or go see a movie?”

        • Powell says:

          Brandi is sooooo stupid about the Scheana thing. Scheana works for Lisa, Lisa wanted her on VPR. Scheana and Pandora are friends. And if Scheana and Brandi were drowning Lisa should save Scheana cuz then she wouldn’t have to hear Brandi whining any longer.

  32. Cartwheels says:

    Kim and Lisa. I think the issue here is important for Kim even if not for any of us.
    Lisa has always been dismissive of Kim which she probably doesn’t see as a big deal but to pretend that she has always care for Kim when it is obvious she hasn’t is taking it a little bit too far.
    Kim in the haze of her addiction probably didn’t realize but as her mind was clearing and she rewatched the show she might have gotten certain doubts about the real intentions of Lisa, did Lisa care for her as she claimed or was Lisa just being fake and snarking behind her back?
    Lisa could have avoided all this is she simply told the truth insteadof calling the hairdresser a liar, Kim has said that she wasn’t even mad . Could have Lisa forgotten about it? possibly
    Did ken needed to be so mean about it? probably not
    The fact that remains for me is that Lisa and Ken do treat Kim like a second class citizen and they really do not need to do that, yes they are in a far much better place than her, yes, they are popular and they are regal, they are elegant and pompous, but instead of using that to make others feel confortable around them , they use it to let the others know that under no circunstances would they ever be as wonderful as they are.
    I have never liked Kim and I think that she could have handled this better, but so could have Lisa and Ken, the nasty things that Kim has told Lisa by no means excuse the awful things that Ken has said and implied about Kim. The last shot at her son was just the cherry on top. Lisa knew very well what she was doing and it is not as if Kim was poking and poking with no reply, Kim gave as good as she took, but Lisa and Ken took it to another level by involving Kim’s son who rarely has been seen in the show, so when somebody does the same to Lisa and involves her son Max in the heat of the argument I would like to know what Lisa’s reaction is going to be.

    • Great insight thinking in all them, Cartwheels… I am glad I have all of you here to have fun and do not take seriously anyone of these women… Otherwise I would never tune Bravo ever in my life. You all are the reason I am here liking or disliking these ladies antics. I just wish BH is OVER and we all can still like each other and not divided by women that are paid to make fool of themselves. I love your comments!

    • mrs peabody says:

      But Kim left Lisa’s son out of the list of who she said lisa loved. She said Pandy and the dog and nothing about her loving her Max. It was on the season final.

  33. jeang says:

    This is exactly why Lisa should dump this show and these woman. She has real businesses and committments and doesnt need them. I would love to see this show without Lisa and watch these piranhas swarm and devour each other. They need her more that she needs them, that is for sure.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Absolutely, Lisa needs to quit RHBH and dedicate herself full time to VPR, after all in that show she is shit stirrer extraordinaire but it is expected from her and nobody can say a word because she is the boss, seems to be a much better fit for her and given the ratings it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if she decides to do just that. Heck it wouldn’t surprise me if she gets another spin off for her new bar PUMP.
      Now if she decides to come back on her own will then I am going to need for her to pretend that she is above the BS when she is right in the middle of it.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        The other HW shows do just fine without Lisa-BH isn’t doing so great with her- ratings are dreadful! If Lisa wants to leave she should-she is boring this season and she is giving me no reason to care about her at the reunion. She’s bored by everyone and everything-it’s time for her to give it up and go play at Sur-where she pays people to treat her like a Queen.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          She’s boring?! …what with all of that “shadiness and lying” that you often speak of, you still think she is boring. Interesting. You, not her. well, yes, I do find her interesting. I would think with all of her supposed subterfuge and power plays and warning shots, you would consider her somewhat interesting. Well, is certainly worthy of lots of comments. At the very least as the antagonist of the show, it seems like you would find her a little bit interesting. I do!! I like her house, her style, her accent, her wit, her businesses, her friends, her enemies talking about her, her castmates imitating her, and even the fact that everyone came after her this season makes her at least a little bit interesting to me. I may not like Brandi, but she’s not boring. Kim, I neither like nor dislike her, but she is a snorefest to me. But I could be wrong. That’s just my opinion.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            She’s shady as hell but boring at the same time-her only response is “oh no” or “ok”…I’d much rather watch her at work than around a bunch of women she doesn’t have time for-that’s boring and silly to me.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              ok, so you’re talking about the reunion (which I didn’t watch…sorry)…not the show? She says way more than oh no and ok on the show…like all the times she brought up the tabloids!!!???? Still if you’re talking about the reunion, then I’m gonna trust you that she’s been boring on the reunion shows.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                During the season it was “oh no” “ok” and “I’m joking darling”….all the while one hand staying steady stirring the sh*t! But since she admits to nothing and will never discuss anything -she bores me.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Do you often discuss people who bore you as much as you talk about Lisa? You don’t seem bored to me. You seem rather passionate, actually and interesting. But ok, if you’re bored, you’re bored. LOL!

                  By the way Maggie is soooooooooo cute!!!! I love that picture. She looks like her daddy, right? The eyes?

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    Ok Lainey let me lay it out-Lisa is boring ON THE SHOW b/c she doesn’t engage with anyone-her answer is always “whaaaat” or “let it go” etc-she starts a lot of crap but then she disengages-it’s annoying and boring. Having said that-it’s not boring discussing her shit stirring ways because it’s what she does-that does not bring excitement to the show but it does creat a story-a boring one because Lisa doesn’t take any claim in it. My “passion” in discussing here is more about me than her…
                    From now on I will never type the word “boring” …it’s a boring word!!

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    Don’t stop typing “boring” because of me!!! i just thought it was odd to be so interested and interesting and colorful and prolific in your comments about someone who you find so boring. Sorry, didn’t mean to be bully-ish. I try no to, but I can get Nitpicky and I’m sure it’s annoying to be on the receiving end of it.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      Quite opposite-I find I annoyed myself by saying boring-you are not bully-ish nor annoying!!! And not nitpicky-I just wanted to try to explain better-but then I bored myself by going on and on!!!

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      I meant to hug you here. Here’s another one (((JillnoNotThatJill))) 🙂 ❤

    • chismosa™ says:

      I would also. I wish she would leave !

  34. California35 says:

    Thanks Empress for blogging NY 🙂

    My favorite scene was Ramona and Avery.

    I would like to be SonJa’s intern. It would be interesting 😛 but just for a couple of weeks. Working for Carol or Ramona would have more real stuff, but with SonJa there would be more fun, girly, stuff.

    I hate Kristen’ husband. He swore he would stick with her and he didn’t. She is not into that and maybe he wishes she was, but sorry she is NOT. Poor thing, i felt for her.

    Carol should leave the whole thing with Aviva alone. Why argue with crazy? She did addressed it, as she should but then let it go. Ignore Aviva!

  35. VV™ says:

    If Lisa leaves RHOBH, it’ll be Brandi’s show. Good luck with your town Kyle.

  36. chismosa™ says:

    I almost forgot to tell everyone the weirdest thing-
    I guess it won’t impress those of you analyzing Lisa today- but – for Lisa lovers- I had a dream last night with LISA IN IT. So weird! I wasn’t even watching BH yesterday or anything. If anything you’d think id dream of a MUDDER or editing books or something.

    It was so weird! We were traveling in the greek islands (???we don’t go there often !)))– and we were staying at some very cave-like Mykonos/santorini type place and we were discussing sheets or something with Lisa ! LOL

    Hahahaa
    This was so out of left field for me. Just thought id share !

    But VV……..I felt lucky.

    That’s all that mattered

    ####Blessed.

    Hi, I got an email from Cusi. Came by to post what’s up. My fiancé isn’t home yet. His Father is there too. We’re praying for the three that are injured. The wind didn’t help at all! Traffic is a mess. Also, we just heard that three people were hit by a car near Logan. I’ll check back in when he gets home.

  38. VV™ says:

    I’m thinking three might be one…..

  39. Eastbayca says:

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned before….but that kiss between Heather and Josh when she finished the Spartan race!!!!

  40. jeang says:

    I know I saw that and wondered why nobody here has brought that up. That was a mighty strong and loooong celebratory kiss. I smell a rat or two.

  41. VV™ says:

    A present from her bestie Kyle.
    (Pic is from December)

  42. I don’t know what. I am doing but this is my first comment from my phone, whoo hoo

    • chismosa™ says:

      CONGRATS

      what phone is it????

      A Smartphone or a dumb phone?

      • A smart phone to make me dumb. It is a Samsung Galaxy SIII, my daughter researched and found that the S IV had screen problems. It is kind of amazing.

        • chismosa™ says:

          I hear that’s the best phone out there. The best JERRY!

          (I’m on a roll tonight. I’m making myself laugh)

          Can you EMOJI with us is all I really want to know??👐

          • I can text and make phone calls and I got on the internet, I AM ON A ROLL!! I will have to look for the emoji, I am looking forward to that THE MOST!! My daughter got one too, so I am kinda letting her figure things out and tell me. But I am making her show me instead of just handing it over.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Have fun. You’re very lucky. My mother knows I don’t have patience to show her anything ! She goes to my bro for that.

              I truly hear excellent things about that phone. Have fun!!

              (On iphone the emoji is a ‘language’ under the keyboard setting FYI. You can choose how many language keyboards you want) not sure maybe that can help —

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Cool!

  43. ladebra says:

    This is for you SJP

  44. chismosa™ says:

    YO VV…..

    – read the description …..

  45. I think I would have been really happy to hear Lisa say to Kim,

    “Yeah, I got back in time for your Backyard BBQ but Brandi had already texted me and told it was a “Bust” and I think….she said…if I remember correctly, it was a really looser of a party.”

    Just throw Brandi under the bus with a real juicy LIE!!!!

  46. chismosa™ says:

    Well wish me a sweet dream
    With the Queen
    Of the shi shi
    Land of milk & honey ….

    Oh where oh where
    Shall we venture tonight ! 🚂✈️⛵️🚢

    ——
