The Amazing Race – S24E6 – The Real Housewives of Atlanta S6E20

TARlogo2Welcome back Racefans.. As some of you may have guessed, I have been a little busy this weekend with a new project so this recap is going to be kind of short. We started off where we left it hanging last week. At a rowing club in Sri Lanka. Dave and Conner won the leg and Margie and Luke were eliminated. Some of you didn’t seem too disappointed in that and in fact appeared to take comfort in the knowledge. This Week teams are starting to depart at some ungodly hour, 2:59am.. The first instruction tells them to get to the Dutch Museum and search the hall of headstones for their next clue. Dave and Conner get there and guess what kids.. The place is closed until 8:30am.. All teams will be there when it opens.

t1The place opens and all the teams bumrush this guy to get their next clue.. That clue tells them to jump on a train and get to Alawwa, Sri Lanka. Once they get there, they have to get to the Ceypetco Fuel Station. All teams arrive at the same time as they were all on the same train. What they will find there is about 10000 tuk tuks, those little 3 wheeled cabs, and their next clue is a roadblock. “Who wants to fill er up (anyone remember when people who worked at gas stations actually pumped gas?) One from each team has to get a colored card from the attendant. Then they must match that card to cards on the windshield of 4 tuk tuks waiting in line to fill up, get them to the pump,  and pump their gas (3L) for them. Once they’ve done all 4, they can move on. Remember the matching cards part..

The only who done it I’m going to get into here is Brenchel, rather, Rachel. She chose green….She did not read the instructions. Rachel proceeds to fill up every Green tuktuk in line, causing a tuktuk traffic jam. There are only two pumps available for this task, and she has one monopolized, doing everything but what she is supposed to do. She fills 4 of these things and thinks she is done. When they say No, she goes back to the same tactic, filling green tuktuks, ignoring what her clue told her. To the point nearly of fighting with the others. Finally, John trying to steal a green one because it has his colored card on it, has to point out to her what she’s done wrong.

Big Easy is using brute force to get his close enough to the pump to put gas in them. It is the Globetrotters who get out of there first. The next clue is another train ride and now they are going to Ramakkana and once there they have to take a tuktuk to the Millennium Elephant Foundation, a sanctuary for rescued elephants, to get their next clue from the river.. All teams except for Brenchel get to the station in enough time to get tickets and catch the train. For a second it looks as if they, will miss that train and will have to wait for the next one. However, they catch the train in the last seconds (Dammit).

They all get to the elephant river and get their clue. It’s a detour. “Trunk or Sheets”

Trunk, they must load 6 marked logs on to a truck. 3 with the help of an elephant and the other 3 by themselves. To use an elephant, they have to properly wrap a chain around a log so the elephant can pick it up and carry it to the truck and load it. The hard part here is getting the chain properly tied. The elephant knows what he’s doing. The catch, is there are only 4 chains available so only the first 4 to that station can do the task. Cowboys, Dave and Conner, Animals, and Surfers get there first. The others have to do the sheets task.

The sheets task, is they have to make paper. The ingredients for the paper are, scrap paper, water, and… elephant pooh. First they have to load a cart with the pooh, then take it to the mixing station. Globetrotters used their hands to load the cart (ewwwww). Once there they mix the ingredients in a container and get it to a pulp that can be spread out. Then they have to take it and put it on the paper making screen, and finally press it. Simplistic explaination.. The pressing pushes the water out, removes wrinkles and air bubbles, and leaves a sheet of paper made from the pulp (scrap paper and pooh). If you want to learn about this here is a link (a youtube vid showing the process). They have to make 5 sheets and once they’ve laid them out to dry, they can move on. In addition to the globetrotters, Brenchel and the blondes are on this task. At first, they all forget the press step and supervisor lady says no good. Finally though, they figure it out and all get it done. Over at the other task, the cowboys were the only ones who understood how to tie the chain on the log after the demonstration. The others kept having to retie the chain. All steps of both tasks had to be approved before teams could go to the next step.

So now teams are completing the detour.. Next, they have to take a cab to Ambepussa Rest House and follow their ears to the wiseman (a guy playing a flute). Once they find him and he finishes his song, they get their next clue. That clue tells them to travel by cab to the Mount Lavinia Hotel Beach. This is Sri Lanka’s first hotel and the location of the next pit stop. The race for first place is between the cowboys and the animals, who call themselves Indians. Cowboys vs Indians.. Get it? That’s what the animals said, don’t shoot me for repeating it. I’ll cut to the chase here, The Afganimals get to the mat first. The race for 2nd to last is between the globetrotters and the blondes. As it happens, their drivers are brothers so it’s as much a race for them as it is for the contestants. The Globetrotters win that race making the blondes last to check in.. Groan.. Guess what Kids.. Non Elimination round.. Again? WTF? See you next week kiddies. – MTH

The Real Housewives of Atlanta by Ramonacoaster

With Friends Like These

We open with the cast still being in Mexico and Nene is still yelling at Peter calling him a bitch. Nene says Peter needs to stay out of the women’s business. Cynthia calls for some order and told Gregg that he should have told Peter privately how he feels. Peter thinks he is not a bitch and Nene apologizes for calling him a bitch. She doesn’t think he is a bitch but he acts like it. Sounds like the same thing. The lawyer in her TH feels bad for Cynthia because on the one hand she has a friend contract meanwhile her husband is in the fire. Gregg starts saying he was handling it before Nene decided to put his balls in her purse and takeover the argument. Gregg tells Peter he gets a pass now but the next has a ticket on it. Peter takes exception to that comment. Kenya is dismayed that the trip is falling apart. Peter goes to pack his stuff to leave beautiful Mexico.

The ladies are back in Atlanta. Kandi is back in her office in the next scene and is happy to be working. Don Juan shows Kandi some of the marketing posters. They are waiting for Porsha to talk about her contract with Kandi’s musical. She has some demands that they are not going to meet. I thought she was requesting green M&Ms. Porsha comes in and explains that she paid her attorney to look through her contract so they should deal with him if they have a problem. Kandi feels it is fair to tell her straight up that they will not pay gas money for her to get to the theatre, they will not give her her own dressing room and they will not give her equal billing. They start rehearsal that Friday so she needs to get the contract settled before the first practice. No one wants a repeat of Kim and the “Tardy for the Party” scenario.

Peter and Cynthia are hanging out in Cythia’s closet. Cynthia is planning a party for Noelle. Cynthia brings up the argument in Mexico with Peter and Nene. They had not talked for a week and they usually don’t wait that long to talk to each other. Peter feels that if Gregg was upset he could have picked up the phone. Peter thinks Gregg was confrontational and the argument got out of hand. Cynthia felt it was uncomfortable when Nene called Peter a bitch. Cynthia thought it was disrespectful and Peter thinks Cynthia should let Nene know that. Cynthia wants to confront them and tell Nene that it was wrong to call her husband a bitch. Uh oh! This is not going to go well. Maybe she should wait until Nene gets another showbiz job.

Nene is talking with Gregg and thinks Peter is the only man that confronts and argues with other women. Nene didn’t think it was wrong to address Peter because he addresses everyone else. Gregg was concerned Nene’s relationship with Cynthia could be affected negatively. He wants to reconcile because he doesn’t want to damage Nene’s friendship with Cynthia. So Gregg and Nene wants to put the friendship first and Cynthia wants to put her husband’s manliness first. I already predict this will not go well.

Kandi goes back to her old high school to meet with the school principal to give an opportunity to two students to help with the production of her musical. The principal has picked out two students. He surprises Kandi with her old music teacher Mrs. Turner which made Kandi very happy. Kandi then accompanies D Woods of Danity Kane and Victor Jackson, celebrity choreographer, to a school assembly to announce the two students picked for this honor. The two students are really excited to be picked. Kandi then makes an inspiring speech to the kids while the kids cheer her on.

Kenya and Marlo meet at Kenya’s house to discuss the Mexico trip. In Kenya’s TH she says next time she plans a trip she would rather pay for Marlo instead of Nene. I thought production paid. The doorbell rings and in comes in a parent coach Susan. She is going teach Kenya how to care for a child. Kenya is taught how to support the baby’s neck, feed the baby, burp the baby and name the baby. Kenya asks Marlo what she should name the baby. In her TH, Kenya doesn’t want to “name the baby Apollo because she doesn’t want him to go to jail.” She doesn’t want to “name the baby Porsha because she wants the baby to find the United States on the map.” She doesn’t want to “name the baby Nene because she wants the baby to have hair.” That’s funny. Kenya explains to Susan that she doesn’t have a partner now but she is planning to move forward. Kenya says she has enough money to pay someone to care for the child but Susan was talking more about support. Kenya feels that she has been a mother to her puppy baby Velvet. She tries to show she is a good mother by telling Velvet to go to bed but Velvet is like hell no. I want to stay up and see what’s going on. Susan leaves a doll that simulates what taking care of a real baby feels like with Kenya and Kenya freaks when she puts the doll down and the doll starts crying.

The lawyer meets with Willie Watkins whom she has known for 20 years to let him know her progress. He owns a funeral home that she will eventually join after she passes a few tests and graduate. They discuss how crazy her life is with going to school, practicing law and taking care of her babies. The lawyer wants people to “come die with her” because she wants people to go out in grand style.

Kenya brings Velvet and her aunt shopping for baby stuff. Velvet likes playing with the stuffed animals but totally ignores the baby simulator. I don’t think Velvet likes to share the attention.

“A Mother’s Love” rehearsals start and there are two weeks left until opening night. Two actors are play fighting and singing. Kandi is honored to have Eddie Levert acting in her musical and is happy to have a sold out crowd. Porsha is no where to be found because her contract has not been finalized. She needs to learn her part pronto. Kandi is nervous because she has a couple weeks to learn choreography and songs. She is starting to question whether or not she should have her in the musical. Don Juan announces that Porsha still wants a couple more days to submit her contract. Apparently Porsha is the only actor with an understudy so Kandi is not that nervous.

Porsha and her friends and sister are partying at the club to celebrate her divorce being almost over and her contract almost being signed. Porsha is sure if a newly divorced girl should behave. She doesn’t seem to get that she hasn’t divorced yet. She meets one of the guys at the club who gives her an impromptu golf lesson and then asks for her number so that he could give her a golf lesson. Porsha then tells him to give his number to his sister because she is between phones. Dude just cut your losses and run. She thinks the underground railroad is a real railroad.

Peter and Cynthia meet Nene and Gregg for drinks to discuss what happened in Mexico. Cynthia feels uncomfortable. Gregg starts by saying he thought Peter wasn’t being proper and he wanted to address it but thought better of it until he went to Mexico and exploded. Peter didn’t like that Gregg wanted to start a physical fight and Nene called him a bitch. Nene feels that she didn’t purposefully try to disrespect Peter but she can’t control her alter ego Naynay. Nene didn’t realize she called him a bitch but what she wanted to say that he was acting like a bitch. Cynthia thinks Nene calling him a bitch and acting like a bitch is the same thing. Cynthia tells Nene that word is very provoking. Gregg tries to break up the tension by telling Cynthia with a straight face “if you were to call me a bitch it would crush me.” Cynthia gets the joke and plays along. She then says friends should be able to tell someone they are wrong. Gregg makes a heartfelt apology. They laugh and makeup. The meeting didn’t turn out as bad as I thought it was going to be.

        I hope it goes well. ❤

        • LaineyLainey says:

          She was diagnosed with dry socket, he Re-cut her again, so that new blood clots will form, etc, etc. it’s the lower two. She is home now, he numbed her entire mouth and prescribed a new pain pill as the Vicodin was doing nothing. Fingers crossed!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            He Re-cut her. Not Re-cut her “again.”

    • Shiny says:

      Enjoy the lovely weather for all us northerners….here in middle of Mass, we’re at freezing with sleet sitting on everything. My friend who was supposed to come to lunch is stuck up in the hilltowns with solid ice on everything wondering how long until she loses power. This March going out like a lamb is a full grown ram instead.

      • Powell says:

        Goodness. Solid ice. Ugh. I hope it warms up for you and your friend.

      • HuskerHuny says:

  6. Veena (NMD) says:

    Good morning – today’s blog – Gaudi’s world of imagination – Park Guell

    http://wp.me/p4kxEH-5H

  7. Foxymel11(Mel) says:

    I’m not watching the reunion tonight. I’ve had a back-to-back migraine these last few days and this show has gotten too stressful to watch. They really could’ve just made reunion in one episode. Ugh
    🙂

    • Hope you feel better!!

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        Thanks Princess P, much better! Catching up on your take about David Foster-brilliant!!

        Can you imagine if Yo had small children? Ouch!

        • Thank you! Yeah, it would be hard, but she could have nannies, lol. I hope you can find a dark place to hide so your migraine goes away.

          • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

            That’s sweet, luckily the meds. Have started to work. I’m telling you, I prefer to have the flu than these migraines. 😦

            That’s true! She’d have nannies and team leader nannies. But I think David wouldn’t have married her if she had little ones.

            • #heanitgotnotimeforthat

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

              That sucks. I’ve had migraines for decades. I feel your pain. I double my meds if I don’t get better in 20 minutes. Two days would kill me. Or rather I’d kill anyone next to me.

    • Powell says:

      I’m sorry Foxmel. Yes please don’t watch. You’re in enough pain. Take care and I hope you’re better soon. I know what you’re going thru.

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        Thanks Powell! On a good month it’s like 9-10 but this past month was 14. I only get 9 pills per month, so I have been using my emergency stash. The preventative pills don’t work so I think I may have to do Botox treatments if my insurance covers them.

        What do you do for yours?

        • trudie says:

          Have you tried Feverfew? I get it at GNC and take two pills – one in the morning and one at night – at they help. I still get migraines, but not as many as before. This time of year does me in because of the changes in barometric pressure.

          I have a friend who gets horrible migraines. She is often in bed for multiple days. She tried botox and it did not work for her. I have another friend for whom they shots worked.

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

          Holy crap. 9 per month? Does Midrin work for you? I love that stuff. Don’t you need 10 migraines a month for Botox? I wouldn’t qualify but it would be a nice side effect (no migraines) if I just got some injections myself.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Feel better

      Definitely stay away from BH….

      Stay 500 feet back… Minimum

  8. HuskerHuny says:

    I so love the Globe Trotters on Amazing Race. They make me laugh and they don’t take things so seriously. Along with dad and son and the cowboys, I hope one of those teams win.

    • MelTheHound says:

      If I had to pick a favorite on the season, the Globe Trotters would be it. I did some looking around and the team is not actually originally from Harlem. They are from Chicago and were started by a 5 foot something jewish man who wanted to play a team sport himself. The NBA had just started out and the GT was started with 5 players who could outplay anybody in the league but were kept out because they were black.They worked for pennies with challenges to any team just for the exposure.. Some interesting vids on youtube about them…

      • HuskerHuny says:

        That’s really interesting. I remember watching them on ABC’s Wide World of Sports on the weekends when I was growing up (in the 60s). Meadowlark Lemon and Curly Neal. They always made me laugh and Flight Time and Big Easy do as well.

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        I started watching this season but 60 minutes decided to f with my life. So thanks for the recaps!,

    • trudie says:

      I love them too. I love how they interact with the local people and just seem to be having so much fun.

  9. chismosa™ says:

    DRAGONLADY///REEBS:

    not sure if you watch TWD and the super weak finale last night but this made me think of you LOL

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

      That’s funny. Even TWD peeps are GOT fans.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Well maybe it’s similar genres ???
        I don’t know I don’t do fantasy. Except ZOMBIES …. For Daryl 😍

        They have this sucky season that just ended so the hype and expectations are even more heightened for GOT

        That Danish hottie from GOT is in the new Cameron Diaz movie. He’s so gorgeous! Like a cross between Halle Berry’s baby daddy #1 and Sawyer from Lost. Double 😍😍

        • SoutheastVA says:

          Is it me or does “That Danish hottie” (Jamie Lannister on GOT) look like the Prince Charming character on Shrek?

          • chismosa™ says:

            Lol didn’t remembers so looked it up.haha!!
            Very good. Who voiced him? I have to look that up. He wasn’t john lithgow- that was another royal

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

              No! It’s Rupert Everett. Poor Nikolaj.

  10. chismosa™ says:

    JILL—- ASHY—- where have you been!?!!
    I feel like I haven’t seen you in a while…..

    I’m dying to know what happened with the medal Saturday ….
    👏🏆

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I’m here!! I have been very busy these past few weekends-always some party going on! Maggie showed off the medal and everyone yelled at Kevin for not telling THEM about it-he thought I was mad but once my family heard about it-forget it! Poor guy didn’t stand a chance! My Dad loves Kevin so much (he calls him his “main man”-very funny) so he was really going on and on about being so proud of him and how great it would have been if he could have gone to the dinner..haha-that’s my family-they forgot who was supposed to be mad and took over the whole thing-I love those crazy lunatics!! Kevin was sufficiently scolded and then overly cheered-typical day with my family!!!

      • Exit4 says:

        I saw a fire truck go by when I was having lunch and wondered if it was from your husbands station!

      • Powell says:

        JNNTJ that’s so nice to hear.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I’m so happy to hear that. What a great family 💙

        Are YOU also not watching tonight !!??? 🐻

        Seems everyone is OUT …

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I’m watching-I have put up with the whole season so I’m not denying myself the rest of this mess!! I hope something crazy happens!! I want Joyce to lose her mind or Carlton to flip out…something anything!! It has been a very hum drum reunion so far-these BH chicks need to step up their game!!!

          • chismosa™ says:

            It seems they’re leaving the worst for tonight. Theatrics wise .
            Kyle seems to have her lines memorized well, complete with flared nostrils, narrowed eyes, and the flip of her hair.

            And you KNOW I don’t care for pageant lady- but the seating arrangement and Yo giving her back to Joyce – and so dismissive of her – I want to throw lemons at Yo’s face! UGHHHHHHHH
            She’s insufferable this Yo!

            My favorite dress and look but she’s such a BI****!!!!!!!!!!!
            Please Carlton knock her out or something !

            • VV™ says:

              You forgot pointing finger 👈👆👉👇 and Waterworks USA 😭💦💦💦💦

              • chismosa™ says:

                Waterworks had her script 📃& accompanying body reactions ready for tonight.

                Kim is a non factor to me and I’m only 1 season in.

                Can’t take the gravelly voices of the Dicks. Kyle must smoke too…..
                Kim we know does E (cigarettes! 😜)

                But you won’t see tonight so I don’t know who’s going to report as everyone is o-v-a-h the show

      • shamrockblonde says:

        ah the Irish – that is exactly how it would have happened in my family too – congratulations again!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Cool. Now he understands what a big deal it was to you, everyone! Sounds like fun!

  11. Powell says:

    Porsha was out partying in her ugly Herve Leger dress instead of getting that contract signed and rehearsing. Kandi needs to cut her loses and give the role to the understudy. She was getting the dance moves and the music down. She’s dedicated.
    So next week when Kenya is crying is something bad going to happen to Velvet? It seemed like it was Velvet the way Kenya and her aunt were talking. I hope not. Thats a cute dog and Kenya really loves her.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I know a DOG IS NOT A CHILD (DINAC) but I feel she really has in her heart the longing for kids. I do.

      I feel bad about the dog. Dear god I pray it’s not some scary way she is gone.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Powell does. Porshea think she’s 21? I was so pissed seeing that. Sign the damn contract and go work!!

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Hi Jill! I can’t believe she posted a pic of her son on twitter. I was just going to call her a twat. Tweeter-twat. But I think it may be inappropriate for this site. Anyway, can’t she keep anything sacred?

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Haha Foxy -Tweeter twat is funny!!! She can’t keep her business off Twitter-who the hell runs to twitter when their kid is in the hospital? What a moron!! She tweets that they “saved his life” at the hospital and the next day they are off to a Braodway show??? I don’t get it..she’s so dumb!!

    • T-Rex says:

      Hmmmmm she gets blasted on twatter for taking her kids to a broadway show and keeping them up late after a cross country airplane ride, and then one of the sons winds up in the ER. Can someone say Munchausen’s syndrome??? It’s bad enough she fakes her own injuries, now she is faking her children’s?? Thats pretty sick and twisted.

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        Hi T-Rex! Yep, that is exactly what she has. There’s also a pattern with her and it’s public, I wonder what she’ll tweet tonight. I just hate that she has to use her kids this way. She makes Tamra from OC look like a saint.

      • chismosa™ says:

        She’s regular and by proxy.
        So gross

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

        AND Donald Trump always says his biggest pet peeve is exaggeration. It’s a fancy word for lying. (I have to agree with him.)

    I have never been a pet owner. Nothing against pets, just never had one. But something always gets me when I hear it and it came up on RHATL last night.

    I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings here if you are a pet owner, but where in the world can one compare raising a child to raising a dog? Kenya seems to feel that raising a baby would be O.K. because she has taken good care of her dog. I was worked with a girl (who chose not to have children) and she was going on and on about her dog and his many escapades and then looked at me and said, “kind of like raising a child?” I wanted to reach over the table and shake her.

    I appreciate that dog owners do in fact love their dogs and I can accept that they are a part of the family. I have to admit I’m in the dark on this one and for some reason, it kind of makes me a bit mad. I’m I alone on this one?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      You are not alone…until Kenya actually has a baby she can’t say it’s like anything she’s ever done. You can’t leave a baby in the house and go out to work all day or party at night-last I checked kids don’t really like to be put in crates when parents leave the house…oh and they don’t like to poop outside either!! It’s a pretty silly assumption that if you have a dog you know what it’s like to have a child…the two are soooooo not the same!!

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

      I have dogs and I don’t want kids. Nothing against people wanting or having kids, but I don’t want the commitment. There’s no comparison there. Kenya is an idiot.

      • T-Rex says:

        My DH and I have NO kids, and we have always had dogs, for the past 23 years. I have had dogs my whole life, right now we have five, I know we are crazy the rescue groups kept calling, however the INN IS FULL, no more doggies. With that being said, NO WAY the dogs compare AT ALL to raising children, they aren’t even comparable. I do not get people comparing them to raising children. Now, we do call our doggies FurKids, but again, we do not compare then to human children.

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

          Well, I am the master, I’m not the mother. I always correct people when they don’t make the distinction.

          Now I wouldn’t mind being the Mother of Dragons, but that’s a whole nutho Oprah.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I have two boys (dogs~~~) and I’m very motherly and very strict with them. But I also babysat for TONS of kids when I was a teen, then my goddaughter all through college. My friends’ kids gravitate to me…. Sometimes you just feel it. You either know you want it or you know you don’t. Imho

      I think some people are natural nurturers be it babies, elderly parents, dogs, goldfish, plants!

      Those can’t compare to humans of course – I’m not dumb but I think some have the instinct and some don’t.
      It’s also a quarter of a million dollars to raise a child right now … So there’s that. LOL!

      I think it’s wonderful Kenya has the true want for kids. I believe her. She’s bat$hit nuts a lot but she’s just quirky (Aquarius!)
      I think she has the true desire to and is not ignorant of what it will entail. She’s just making good tv. But I believe her.
      I truly wish her the best. I think she’d be great. She’s like Bethenny – trying to have the child her mom didn’t have in her. Kenya’s situation was worse. (IMO)

    I have been binge watching a fairly bad hospital drama, Mercy about three nurses in NJ. One story arc is that one of the nurses is dating a fireman that she didn’t know was married. The wife confronts her with two of the wife’s friends. The friends were played by Tre and Jak in all their HW’s glory. It was almost like the dinner with the table flip. Tre wasn’t a terrible actress.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Wtf?

      Wasn’t b saying she was excited her boys were going to ny to see her?

      I know CA had a 4 am call time today – Kenya tweeted that out.

      Then the hospital…. I’m confused as to when they visited NY(or Brandi went to Cali), then Leann had them, then B’s mom?

      Whatevs

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Gerardo must be in ny, too

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        I think he’s on CA too. I love how Lisa announced in her interview that Brandi is on CA.

      • VV™ says:

        It is rumored Geraldo is a CA contestant. Kids went to NY, she tweeted pics. I don’t know if she’s hanging in NY to give the impression that she was not kicked out of CA…

        • I am with you VV!!! Same thought! Are you sure we are not twins separated at birth?

        • chismosa™ says:

          Yes I’m so dumb^^^^^^ thanks all

          Forgot that! And the rumor was his team won the pie challenge. I think Brandi and Twirl were on his team. I read that and it could be wrong™

        • trudie says:

          Was she kicked off of CA?

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I think the teams were men vs women and I think I read that the men won..idk if brandi was kicked off but if she was I’m sure we would have seen a pissed off tweet about-she can’t keep her mouth shit about anything!!

            • LaineyLainey says:

              UNLESS…UNLESS! There is a Clause in her contract saying, you forfeit all money if you violate the confidentiality of the show.

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

            I bet she was. They cram the whole season into three weeks of shooting. She doesn’t seem to be worrying about any tasks right now.

          • VV™ says:

            I don’t know for sure. I think she was based on her tweets last week and the sudden change of plans for her kids to go to NY.

  15. SoutheastVA says:

    I saw a story stating that Porsha may be fired because of the altercation at the reunion. Does anyone know if it’s true.

    Porsha is not my fave H…no where near it. She’s to dense in the head. But, if she’s fired, why is she being held to a higher standard than other HW cast members?

    Bravo kept both Joes on RHONJ after a knock down drag out fight. They kept Teresa after she pushed her boss (Andy) down at the NJ reunion. They kept on Ashlee after she assaulted Danielle. Tamara gets to throw things at people when she feels like it. And, they kept Adriana from RHOM on after she straight punched Joanna.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Good point, SE VA! Can’t stand her, but they didn’t care when the men fought in NJ! Porschea should find a real job anyway.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I’m guessing maybe Kenya threatened legal trouble for Bravo if they didn’t do anything about Porsha. Just a guess . . .

      • Mene Seela says:

        I think in this case the ATL cast was recently informed that physical altercations will not be tolerated any longer.
        The presto Porscha pulls out Kenya’s hair.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Wait any longer —-> why now? What happened that would have made bravo say this —

          Apollo vs Brandon???
          I guess it’s that .

      • Powell says:

        I was thinking the same thing.

    • Exit4 says:

      I think they kept all the Jersey peeps because they were pushed to “that place” by the show itself. Ashlee probably being the exception-but even so-she was allowed to be part of the story. She shouldn’t have been once it passed a certain point.

      The production is part of the problem-hard to fire someone when you’re partially culpable!

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

        Adriana did cold clock Joanna.

        • Exit4 says:

          I don’t watch Miami so I didn’t know what happened exactly. It’s sad it’s come to that isn’t it?

    • Orson says:

      I believe the change was announced by Bravo AFTER Nene’s Pillow Talk thing, where Apollo got into it with someone’s husband or friend?

    • Powell says:

      SoutheastVA very very good point. I forgot about those .

  16. LaineyLainey says:

    Good question, SEVA! If it’s true…

  17. shamrockblonde says:

    ok – its official – I want the afghanimals gone – when one of the cowboys went around the other way to use the gas pump one of them accused the cowboys of cheating! then just trash talking the team – not good – and John – wow – who gave him too much coffee! he was out there fighting with those tuk tuk things – and then on the race to the finish started saying things like “good for you, you beat the old man” when he and his son were in a footrace to the mat – still love that team though – GO COWBOYS!!

    and Jeff – I have to check out the link but do you have a new puppy? if so, good luck and Mel would approve – *hugs Jeff really hard*

    as for the ladies of the ATL – Kandi made me teary eyed – as for the rest of you – ……..

    • Mene Seela says:

      I love them cowboys too. No whining, cheating or fighting dirty. Plus they’re cute.

    • Ok, quick check-in and then back to the slave mine. I am good with GlobeTrotter or Cowboys and agree about afghanimals (they just get on my nerves). Hope everybody is having a good day!

    • chismosa™ says:

      I love the cowboys. They were on Nightline and they’re awesome and they’re from Oklahoma and I’ve been there a couple of times, bought cowboy boots there so- Go them!
      Great guys ❤
      Wish they were a tad friendlier with others it's kind of creepy sometimes but I get they're on a MISSION.

      If the afghanis don't win they'll be back for the next All Stars and ……the next one …..
      I love the HGs and would never support mormons so no to them.
      I like Brendan and Rachel very very much this time around however – let me quantify- I never ever saw them on BB. I wish them well.

  18. iceNfire says:

    Hello – Do we know that Kenya’s dog died? Maybe her doll got taken away from her …

  19. Powell says:

    VV I see last night you posted LeAnn’s tweet the she and Eddie’s show starts in July on VH1. Is anyone watching?

    Thanks to MTH and Ramonacoaster for the blogs today! 🙂

    OT; RANT

    OMG I was flipping through the channels and ran upon some dumbass TV show wherein they were talking about this NEW trend of men wearing makeup and dressing up, etc. UHM pull out a HISTORY book you MORONS. Men have been doing this for many years, uhm say like 4000+ years, it only stopped being a day to day activity during the 18th century, when many aristocrats were being overthrown due to their excess. Now it’s supposedly on the COMEBACK but it most certainly is NOT some NEW trend. Good gawd, someone please give the new generation an actual history book!! Oh we tried to hire another person under 25 today, yep went the same way all of our other interviews have gone, seriously we are trying to hire someone young so that they can grow with our company.

    • jezzibel says:

      typical if the new generation didn’t think of it 5 minutes ago, it never happened. I was very recently assured by a young dumb@$$ that, 9/11 probably wasn’t as bad as it was made out to be(I did not get arrested for assault aka attempting to beat the smart into him), and I told him that I was in active service when it happened and how the hell would he know he must have been in kindergarten when it happened, he said “well yea, but parents talked about it a lot when it happened.” I used to think my generation was pretty stupid, but this recent generation is making generation look like a bunch of geniuses by comparison.

      • T-Rex says:

        Yeah, this whole new generation thinks they have CREATED everything!!! UGH uhm no, you are just too ignorant of real history to realize that something has been around forever. Look I am that in between generation, not quite Baby boomer and not quite Gen-X we spent most of our time stoned and drunk, but at least we didn’t CLAIM shit that has been around forever as NEW we actually had to read our history books. Dazed and Confused the movie was our every Saturday night.

  22. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Chismosa, so which housewife are you most like? Where is this quiz? I’m afraid if I took it I might not like the results either!

  23. VV™ says:

    Interesting… Watched a clip from RHONJ S1 and Kyle tells Kim why does she need a house with lot of bedrooms then Kyle proceeds to say that Whitney lives with her boyfriend, Brooke lives with her boyfriend, Kimberly’s stays with her dad…. I don’t think Kyle said anything about Chad but I think to recall somebody mentioning he lives with his dad in Houston as well….
    So, at least on S1 newly graduate was living with her dad. I wonder if that was that case until she graduated…
