Flipping Out S7E5 “Due Date” by BB

There’s lots of baby talk about what happens during delivery, who’s doing what if Jenni goes into labor at work, and all that, but here’s what happened with regard to Jenni’s pregnancy.  FO S7E5_2She worked for Jeff past her due date, including riding around in Jesse, the painter’s, un-air conditioned truck.   Jenni wrote an article about her labor, delivery, and being a new mom exclusively for Hollywoodlife.com.  In it, she said she was watching Shark Tank and eating pepperoni pizza when she went into labor.  She got an epidural and it was wonderful for a while until she had to back down to push.   It’s a nice article if you want to read more.  She also listed some of her exclusive mommy confessions.  My favorite confession was she plays her children’s rap album “Old School Kids Beats” for Alianna on a loop.  I’ll bet Jenni is a wonderful and fun mom.   Jeff is probably a great “uncle” to all his friends’ and relatives’ kids.

Jeff is still looking for a potential flip, but really needs the equity from the sale of Gramercy to get back into that business.  He wants two houses, one to live in and one that’s a heavy fixer.  There’s not much out there according to his sister in law realtor.   Jeff has to have control of his projects and that’s not the case with his current clients.

FO S7E5_1The Gosselaars, Mark-Paul (Zach from Saved by the Bell) and his pregnant wife Cat, are redoing their Hollywood Hills house and Jeff is helping them pick out furniture and accessories. FO S7E5_5
He is taking their house from bland to the next level.  Mark-Paul and Cat need to take some risks and step outside of their comfort zone.  The interior is repainted while they are away in Hawaii.  The end result is really nice.  I especially like the nursery.  They seem happy with what Jeff has done.

Lisa, Jeff’s client from last year, now wants to get the exterior of her house done.  Her husband Gary, catches Lisa, Jeff and Jenni talking about it, and he reminds her they hadn’t decided to start the project yet.  Gary will be watching things very closely during Phase 2, including the budget.  Jeff and Dan, the landscape architect, get into a discussion with Lisa about the budget for the exterior.  Gary has left a list of what he wants done.  He’s in Boston.  Talking about money makes Lisa crazy.  Jeff comes up with a budget of $75,000.  She says she will not pay a cent over $50,000.  This is a perfect reason for Jeff wanting to go back to flipping, so he can have control over things.  The bid for painting the exterior of the house is over $30,000.  Lisa wants it done for half of that price.  She suggests that Jeff and Jenni do the painting themselves (after Jenni has the baby).  Jeff gets one of his mediocre painters, Jesse, to do a bid on painting the house.  Jesse agrees to do the job for $10,000.  Have Lisa and Gary never heard the saying “You get what you pay for?”

Jenni has the baby with her family and best friend (not Jeff) present.  Jeff and Megan go to visit the baby at Jenni’s house.  Jeff knows things won’t be the same, but is very happy for Jenni.

Southern Charm S1E5 “White Ties & White Lies”

By HydrangeaHussy

We’re back! I’m very surprised that I’ve stayed with this show for five whole episodes now! Last time, we learned that Kathryn isn’t pregnant with TRav or Shep’s baby, but she did manage to get back into TRav’s life. We also learned that Jenna does, in fact, have a wealthy boyfriend. And Patricia is still my favorite character. FYI – for anyone who wants a true dose of Southern life, this year marks the 25th anniversary of Steel Magnolias, still one of my favorite movies of all time! Now, on to the show:

We begin in TRav’s kitchen. He & Kathryn are discussing attire for JD’s party. TRav is going to buy her a new dress. As an aspiring model, she must love all of this airtime. I have to wonder if TRav is using her for her political connections – her middle initial, “C”, is for Calhoun, as in the 7th VP of the US, whom she is a descendant of. Kathryn is worried what people will say at an upcoming event. TRav assures her that he isn’t worried & that he likes that she doesn’t care what people think. He sees lots of potential in Kathyrn, especially after the pregnancy scare.

Cameran meets up with Whitney at a wine/cigar bar. She thinks that Whitney is secretly in love with assistant Brandi. Cameran isn’t sure why else Whitney would have hired her. She points out that Whitney needs to settle down & start having babies. He could join the yacht club & Brandi could join the junior league. As stereotypical as that sounds, it’s probably an accurate description of Southern society couples. The real reason for the meeting comes out – Cameran wants to be Whitney’s realtor. He’s looking to buy a house & move out of his mother’s. Whitney says that living with Patricia is a little like Norman Bates. Cameran doesn’t know who that is. Oh dear. She’s already found a $7 million house for him.

JD is at his barber shop/spa, planning the Carolina Day party. He’s very specific about what he wants. TRav arrives to get primped for the party. He has purchased a white dinner jacket for the event. JD asks about Kathyrn. TRav again says that Kathyrn has all of the qualities that he looks for. Didn’t he say that about her before their one-night stand, and then dump her afterward because of her age? Anyway, TRav is bringing her to the party & JD approves.

Shep wants an explanation from MJ because she was hanging out with her ex. How hypocritical – he’s pissed that she saw another guy, while he was sleeping with Kathryn. MJ arrives at Shep’s & he immediately brings up the ex. She admits that she hangs out with her ex, but doesn’t seem to understand why it’s a problem. I don’t either – she & Shep were not exclusive. He’s way too upset about this. She doesn’t seem to be very into Shep, which must bruise his poor little ego.   Oh, Shep, telling a girl that you usually have your hands all over someone after 2 dates isn’t the way to win this girl over. I think that he’s just pissed that she isn’t falling all over herself for him. Welcome to the real world Shep.

SC S1E5_1Patricia, Whitney & TRav are having lunch. It’s time for Patricia’s “medicine,” aka gin. Patricia immediately launches into questioning TRav about Kathryn. TRav raves about all of Kathryn’s good qualities. Did anyone else notice that the first quality was her family connections? Patricia recalls first meeting Kathryn, at 9 am in her kitchen. Hmm, did Kathryn also hook up with Whitney? Patricia tells TRav that she shouldn’t be cavorting with 21-year old college girls & that he needs a major woman. TRav defends Kathryn, saying that she has much poise as any woman. Whitney says that she plays like she’s 12 & that TRav needs to cut it out. He sure isn’t mincing words. Patricia suggests that, “instead of impregnating 21-year olds, you might want to refocus.” Love her! She reminds me of some of the older women in my life – have a cocktail, speak your mind, don’t worry about offending people.

TRav meets Kathryn for a drink. He tells her about the conversation with Patricia. Kathryn isn’t surprised that they are judging her. She believes that she is just as smart as Whitney & that it’s BS to think that she will harm his political career. As she begins explaining her relationship with Whitney, it becomes obvious that she was a make-over project for him. TRav is suspicious, but Kathryn tells him that she didn’t hook up with Whitney. She says that he did try to hook up with her, which makes TRav angry. Why would he be mad at Whitney for trying when Shep actually succeeded? TRav explains that it’s because Whitney has been judging his relationship with Kathryn.

SC S1E5_2Patricia is lounging outside with Whitney. Her butler/servant/assistant brings drinks to them. They discuss the restaurant idea. Shep hasn’t stepped up to the plate as he said he would. Are we really surprised that Shep has shirked responsibility? Patricia thinks the whole thing is unfocused. She wants to set up a meeting with Bryan, the founder of Planet Hollywood. He seems like a much better source of advice than Shep. Bryan’s involvement would also allow Whitney to spend time on his films.

It’s Carolina Day! Too bad that it’s pouring. Everyone is getting ready. JD is going over the details with the staff. I like that he’s so hands on & that he wants to have everything planned ahead of time so he can enjoy the party. Kathryn & TRav are still pissed off at Whitney. TRav is tired of his judgments. Based on Patricia’s comments regarding the pedestrian-ness of food service, I can see where Whitney gets his judgmental character. Whitney is dressing with the help of Robert, Patricia’s chef. It’s very Downton Abbey.   Jenna is wearing a harem pant jumpsuit thing. The crotch hanging down to her ankles is not flattering. At all. The men look good. I love a man in a tux.

JD is waiting near the door to greet his guests. Shep arrives first with a not-MJ blonde. Whitney tells Shep about his mother’s conversation with TRav. These boys sure do like to gossip. Danni arrives, but Shep wants to play the field after MJ. Craig is wearing a dark suit, while the rest of the men are in white dinner jackets. Whitney comments on his “inappropriate” dress, but makes no comment on the fact that the women are in gowns while Jenna is in a jumpsuit. TRav & Kathryn arrive. I really like her dress. The blue-green color looks great with her coloring. Craig wonders why TRav is being so open about his much younger woman. I thought that it was typical for the men to date younger girls? Craig thinks that Kathryn has a hidden agenda & doesn’t really like TRav.

Whitney & Jenna are mocking TRav & Kathryn. Um, Jenna, I wouldn’t be mocking Kathryn’s dress considering you look like you belong at an Arabian Nights party instead of Carolina Day. Kathryn is playing it cool, pretending that she doesn’t hear the gossip. We’re treated to a short scene in which Whitney is begging Jenna to see her tits. Such classy behavior from the etiquette king.

SC S1E5_3The group makes its way to dinner. Whitney, TRav, Kathryn, JD, his wife, & some randoms are at a table. Shep, Jenna, Cameran, & others are at a table. Whitney tells Kathryn that she looks like Rita Hayworth, but Kathryn doesn’t know who that is. Whitney makes a snarky comment that Kathryn should know who that is. Kathryn responds with “but I’m a child, right?” I’m glad that Kathryn isn’t backing down from Whitney’s elitism.   Shep is flirting his way through his table. Obviously he’s heartbroken about MJ. Their table is steadily gossiping about TRav, Kathryn, & the pregnancy scare.

TRav wants to have a dinner party & give advice to the young guys like Shep. Whitney finds the idea of TRav giving life advice absurd. I find the idea of Whitney, who lives with his mother in an elitism bubble, absurd. Whitney agrees to come if TRav can find 4 or more guests. TRav blows up, telling Whitney to go away & threatening to slap him. Ok, Whitney was being a jerk to his supposed friend, but TRav overreacted. The ladies leave the table to gossip in the bathroom. Whitney’s date explains that people don’t always get Whitney’s sense of humor. Back at the table, Whitney denies trying to hook up with Kathryn. TRav believes Kathryn. When she returns to the table, TRav tells her that Whitney has been denying that he invited Kathryn over. Kathryn says that Whitney invited her over to talk politics, but denies that he hit on her. Uh oh. TRav is annoyed that Kathryn changed her story, but thinks it’s because she wants to diffuse the situation.

Despite saying earlier that he didn’t want to go back to Danni & arriving with another girl, Shep drunkenly corners Danni for a make-out session. Classy. And he wonders why MJ didn’t take him seriously? Whitney asks Kathryn to make it very clear to TRav that he didn’t hit on her. TRav returns. He’s had time to reflect & now he wants Whitney to “step outside” with him. SC S1E5_4Very mature for a 50-something year old man. JD tries to diffuse, then asks them to please keep their fight in private. Whitney again denies hitting on Trav’s “lady,” even though TRav wasn’t with her at the time of the alleged attempted hook up. TRav threatens to put Whitney on the asphalt & Whitney threatens to call the police. TRav finally expresses what he’s really mad about – the comments about his party. Whitney apologizes for that. TRav decides to let it go for now.

    I'm watching video of hail the size of softballs in Denton, TX yesterday. Wow. Now they are saying from the southern Great Lakes to the south east. You guys be careful out there!

  6. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Wait…what?? Steel Magnolia’s ?? 25 years ago?? Is that true? How can it be? My Lord my life is moving too fast…I need to put on brakes!! (FYI the movie was on last night and I watched and cried like it was my first time seeing it..boo hoo what an old cry baby I am!!)

  7. Pghemtchick says:

    Brandi and Kenya are tweeting this for tomorrow:

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      So she hasn’t been fired yet..

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Hi PChick! Maybe they sequester all of the cast until filming is done? I can’t imagine Brandi still on this if the guys won their first challenge? And why does Brandi need to dress up like a hooker in the daytime?

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        There’s a show on E! called “Closet Envy” and last Friday, it featured some RHOBH, Kyle, Lisa and Brandi. Wasn’t much to see in Brandi’s closet…the first thing they asked her was “what’s your style” and she replied “I’m kind of a Hooch.”

        KIND OF?!!

        • boston02127 says:

          She’s so low class. Imagine saying that about yourself.

          • shamrockblonde says:

            Imagine saying that about yourself and assuming that you sound sooo cool….
            Teacher – yes little Tommy, what does your Mommy think of herself?”
            Little Tommy – “she thinks she is hooch”

            that conversation, or something very much like it WILL happen with her kids and God knows who –

        • Boobah says:

          So stupid! Who answers like that?!? Well then again…we are talking about the HW’s here. What a dope!

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          Lol well, I’m glad she admits it. But at what point will she realize that she is not 18 yrs old anymore?

    • Powell says:

      Remember when CA started yrs and yrs ago, there was no Twitter.

  8. Pghemtchick says:

    Thank you for the blogs, I was behind.

    BB-Thank you for your housewife blogs. They’ve been enjoyed over the years! Thanks for putting up with those vapid women for us 🙂 hope JustJack had a great bday!

    MTH- Thanks for Survivor! There were a few things I missed, but glad to see these new players bringing the drama. Hopefully that means we’ll see more seasons with new people.

    Thanks everyone for blogging!

    Flipping out-Did you notice someone was on FaceTime/Skype in the delivery room? I couldn’t catch the face without a label in front of it. The phone is on the table in front of Jenni’s mom.

    Big Brother: Janelle tweeted a day or so ago that ‘the past 3 summers she’s spent pregnant or playing big brother-this year isn’t going to be different’. So either Jani is coming back or she’s preggers again!

    Lainey-so glad to hear Laineygirl is on the mend!
    I know I’m missing a bunch of stuff, but my brain is feelin like it’s Monday not Friday! Lol have a great day!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I hope she’s (Janelle) is preggers. I really don’t want to watch her on BB for the 37th time, but she would be an improvement from what was on last year.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yes, all clear – PChick!!! (fingers crossed!) thanks. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      Yeah I saw someone on Skype. I don’t recall them putting up her name. I was just assuming it was Jonathan’s mom since she wasn’t their in person.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Ohhhh that would make sense! They put up Jenny’s moms name and blocked the good view of the phone. Lame Bravo! Lol

      • chismosa™ says:

        The woman looked younger. She looked about Jenni’s or her sister’s age

    • MelTheHound says:

      😀 ..

  9. boston02127 says:

    Hi everyone, It’s been a tough week, two funerals and lots of tears, lots of running around. I shouldn’t be complaining because so many families have been thru so much. I’m taking a mental health day today. I need to pull it together.

    I’ve caught up on the weeks blogs. Thank you for the great blogs! I love when I can take my time and read them. All of you guys that blog are very much appreciated.

    Lainey—Your daughter is so pretty. I love the outfit she’s modeling. I wish I had it in every color. I’m glad she is well.

    I can’t believe Just Jack is one! It seems like he was just born a few months ago.

  10. boston02127 says:

    Battle of the blonde moms! Brandi Glanville rocks leather LBD as she faces off with bundled up Kate Gosselin on set of Celebrity Apprentice:


    *Brandi’s wearing her “smart” glasses.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      LOL about “smart” glasses, she is totally pulling off her model poses. Seems everyone is dressed for a night club in the daytime…wonder what the task was?!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Brandi is so dumb-those glasses do not make her look smart-they make her look like a real dumb ass trying to fool people into thinking she wants to look smart-she doesn’t want to look smart-she wants to look like a hooker-and she pulls that look off perfectly!!

      • mariareads says:

        UM. I have a pair for reading. They are what is being shown right now for frames. Flashback to many years ago when they were popular.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Maria-that’s the difference-you wear yours to read and Brandi wears her for other reasons and reading is not one of them!!

          • PJ says:

            How do you know, she may have worn them because she didn’t want to wear contacts that day.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I know PJ b/c on BH she told Jax that they are FAKE and she doesn’t need glasses-she wears them while having sex because she thinks if she tries to at least look smart it may turn on her booty call.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                And I know she has plenty of booty calls because she listed them in her book.

                • PJ says:

                  I didn’t see that on BH, but it could have been her joking which she does a lot, or not. I didn’t read her book, no comment on booty calls but I think that is unfortunately the way many people live today.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    She wasn’t joking-she was talking to Jax about his “fake” glasses and said she has the same ones-and that they were fake. And that she wears them in the bedroom.

                    • PJ says:

                      Maybe, but she does joke all the time.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      Maybe? She said it to Jax-where is the maybe? She wasn’t laughing and joking-she asked if his were real and he said no -she said hers weren’t either..there was no joke? I don’t get the maybe?

                    • PJ says:

                      My opinion is maybe. Maybe she was joking and maybe she wasn’t. I didn’t see it so I’m not accepting that she wasn’t. I’m saying maybe.

      • Mene Seela says:

        It’s ok as long as they aren’t the same style as Carole’s glasses.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Is it just me or are Brandi’s knees kind of odd. She does have pretty legs, but I’ve noticed her knees before.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I despise Kate Gosselin, she looks like a road hard and hung up wet ex playmate in those pictures…and not even one who in their prime made the cut to be one of Hef’s girlfriends.

    • Powell says:

      I’m sorry but Kate cracks me up trying to be Hollywood glam. It just doesn’t work on her. Is that her hair now or is she still wearing extensions?

      • mrs peabody says:

        Her looks are so different from when the 6 little ones were babies. She just looks so hard. If she’d have a happy face she’d look really nice.

        • PJ says:

          She is a runner I think she has exercised so much that she has lost most of her body fat and it shows in her face, not a good look.

  11. boston02127 says:

    I’m watching NY. I think there is something wrong with Sonja. She obviously loves attention. But I think there is something wrong with her other than that. Like her brain isn’t right. Is she an alcoholic?

    • Mene Seela says:

      I know what you mean. She’s flighty and unfocused. I think she’s always been that way but it’s more obvious with age? And yes alcohol would make it worse as would sleeping aids or antidepressants.

      I tried a very mild sleeping aid (pills) for a few weeks but quit when I found they interfered with my daytime memory.

      Another thing I’ve noticed is her fantastic figure and her high energy…. “B-12” or other uppers?

      • mariareads says:

        I don’t think she’s an alcoholic but I think she is way out there. Why, I have no idea. I wonder if the divorce sent her into some kind of deep depression and anxiety about her financial situation and it has caused her to behave so oddly. Also I think she is desperate to keep that Bravo job for the money so she might be bringing it to keep people interested in her story line. Just guessing.

      • Powell says:

        Sonja’s shape is better than Ramona’s and we know Ramona works out and has a great figure.

      • mrs peabody says:

        It was probably a cute look when she was younger, the dumb spacey blond but it’s not now that she is 50+. She really needs to act her age not try to be like a 20 something

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I think you are right. I also think she is a female version of Aviva’s father. I find it rather sad and pathetic.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      First, ((Boston)) secondly, I thought the same thing. 😦 I feel a little bad for her especially since she seems nice. During her performance, I was cringing and felt so embarrassed for her. Something is off, could be alcohol?

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I wonder if it’s all the supplements she takes interacting with each other? I mean that’s my “nice” guess. Lol. She takes supplements to counter the metal in the water and all sorts of odd ones.

  12. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Anyone? I’m laughing just to imagine the questions they’ll field, lol

  13. Totally OT: Many of you have read my posts about my father-in-law. He is now living in Oregon with Wife No. 4 Marriage No. 6. Sold his house here because he was broke. Burned through about 450,000 in cash and another 100,000 on a credit line so house was sold furnishing and all. Well I have had 2 credit card companies calling me at home and at the office the past year looking for him. He owed one of them around 6,000.

    Wife No. 4 is on Facebook. She does not secure her page. She just bought 2 “club” chairs from Ashley Furniture for…get this…$3,000. WTF? I didn’t know that Ashley Furniture even had anything that expensive. Who pays $1,500 for a chair?
    Father in law brought home a new HD TV for the master bedroom. This make TV No. 4 for a 1600 square foot house. Really???? Thank god they don’t live here anymore.
    I personally think he may be related to Joe and Teresa 🙂

    • Mene Seela says:

      Just keep your wallet hidden. There isn’t anything you can do about people who think like that.
      They are known as financial psychopaths.

      • mariareads says:

        Agree. My best friend has a step daughter who behaves exactly like this and she uses my friend’s telephone number on her applications for credit cards so that when she defaults they call my friend and harass her. She has always been like this. She buys only the best and will go to any length to acquire things. She is devious and shady as hell and knows exactly what she is doing.

        • Mene Seela says:

          We’ve had the very unfortunate experience of getting involved with these types in a business transaction. They harassed us legally and it cost us a fortune financially and emotionally.

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

        I work with this girl who bought a $50,000 Mercedes. She doesn’t make $50,000 a year. She had to move before she couldn’t afford her apartment. Why would you do this to yourself? She thinks it will attract a wealthy man but all it does is prove what a gold-digger she is. Who wants a wife who outspends her means? She’s also not a great beauty.

        • Is this the same gal in your office who took up golf to try and snag a guy at a Scottsdale Country Club?

        • mrs peabody says:

          my sister is a bit like that, always trying to put out there she has more than she does. I don’t know why she does that but my other sisters and I have all noticed it about it. None of the rest of us do that. I have the most of all my sibs and you’d never know it, you’d think I was the worst off of all of us.

        • chismosa™ says:

          I see tons of people around who look like they wouldn’t drive a Mercedes – truly, the brand of cheap knockoff bags, etc — > they always have a Mercedes.

      (Hugs) AZ girl. I know that type of stuff must drive you crazy, especially when the collection agencies are calling your home looking for them.

      My MIL in a hoarder and a shopaholic, so I can sympathize how when someone else’s spending and other compulsions can have residual effects on the lives of extended family.


    • PJ says:

      Why are his credit card companies calling you?

    • I hope you gave the creditors his contact information, lol!

      • Actually I did and you know what? He wife gave him our office number and told the creditor that Mr. AZGirl was his attorney. Mr. AZGirl does not represent him but usually after he talks with them they go away.

          OMG AZ they sound just like the people I mentioned above. We were deluged by their business creditors who were referred to us as the new owners! It was a nightmare.

          My heart goes out to you and your poor hubby.

      Yikes. Yes Ashley does have some top of the line furniture. When I worked in banking Ashley was one of our clients. They have a back room that has top of the line furniture that you don’t see on the showroom floor.
      The creditors that are calling you, you need to start writing down dates and times they call you. Tell them not to call you anymore or you’re reporting them to the FCC I think it is for harassing you.

    So this woman I used to be acquainted with years ago through work keeps sending me LinkedIn messages about getting together. It’s a little strange.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Maybe she saw your profile and is hoping you can put a good word in for her at your company? But then again, we all like you so it makes sense that she would too 😀

      • Mene Seela says:

        LOL. Thanks.
        Her messages are “I miss you so much!” types … but I haven’t seen or spoken to this woman in over 7 years! She was a client who I saw occasionally. We are not in the same industry. We had lunch once or twice, we aren’t personal friends. She’s sent me several messages this past year and quizzed my family member about me. I found her personality high maintenance. Maybe she’s nuts.

          As I understand it, Linked In generates some messages and perhaps mines the members friends list. I get them on people I haven’t seen in years. They don’t say “miss you”, but just say the person wants me to join. I’m considering blocking Linked In.

          • Mene Seela says:

            Joining is cool. Networking. Even though .. somehow 50% of my group I don’t even know (who is this Bob Smith guy with a post a day about Networking? lol).

            Recruiters and potential employers do look at linkedin so I can’t dump it. Also its fun to see my former workmates professional progress.

              I have an unbelievable linkedin — I don’t even work– it is bizarre– I kinda-sorta know the people and have people friend me all the time– bizarre I say! glad to know how it works-

          • chismosa™ says:

            I get them but no messages just that they want to connect. I worked with them ages ago, or family friends but distantly.

    thanks so much for the blogs! – my husband loves watching Jeff Lewis so that is one that we can watch together – of course he still channel surfs the entire time, but not quite as fast so he must really like it!

    I am liking Southern Charm – how do you think Brandi would do on that one? oh my…

    Boston – my heart is with you – there were so many funerals after 9-11 – I went to my cousin’s – that was hard enough, but my other cousin, also a NYC firefighter, made it his mission to attend every single one – it was heartbreaking – Recsue One saw half of its team murdered that day – 343 firefighters in all – hold your fiance and pray for those lost and for their families – I know how close the firefiighter community is – my love to you and yours and please know you and yours remain in my prayers –

    Hi Boston, I read your other posts.

    A big hug to you and all our friends in Boston. The resilience and grace in the face of grief of Bostonians makes me proud to be American.

  17. Thank you BB and HH!! I think I might start watching SC….maybe do a Marathon…. I liked this epi of FO cuz Andrew pretty much kept his mouth shut…. I find it hard to believe that all of Jeff’s capital is tied up in Gramercy…..I wonder if that is for drama…..

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      That was nice about a mostly silent Andrew. Every time I see Andrew I think of a younger deer-in-the-headlights looking Bobcat Goldthwait. Stand up comedian popular in the 80’s, kinda looked like he was on drugs…he had a disgusting kind of humor.

      Maybe Andrew thinks he IS Bobcat, like Brandi thinks she IS Chelsea Handler!

      • Mene Seela says:

        OMG that is too funny. Bobcat. Yeah Andrew is completely inappropriate too.
        Andrew does get the deer in the headlights look … followed by that evil genius boy “ah ha!” look, then he strikes by shrieking something repulsive (instead of putting a spider in your hair).
        Andrew reminds me of the Calvin cartoons.

        Frankly the FO group are entertaining because they are out of bounds! Gage is the uptight the warden grounding them with his disapproval. The fact the jobs get done contrasts with the frat humor.

        The show is good because of the tension .. will the job get done on time? will Andrew blow Jeff’s big new paint business? Will Zoila drown Lupe in the toilet?
        Its still fun to me. I like the show where Jeff and Jenny move in too. Interior Therapy?

      • I remember him…he’s no Bobcat, lol!

    • chismosa™ says:

      I think Andrew is dangerous not for his stupid sense of humor bc obvi that is not so dissimilar to Jeff’s — but because of the Dr Jekyll/ mr Hyde dual personalities he had when first hired. His switch around stories.
      Storming off in the car.
      T H A T’s why I find him a liability. If he gets pissed off he’d take Jeff’s clients info and put it out in public or take it to Jeff’s disgusting ex-partner Ryan!

    Twits by JZ revisiting her hater theory via the Teb/bravoholic nonsense

    No way. U r saying @bravopr paid haters to torture me and now other wives? I thought I was paranoid? Proof? RT @AnnabellsMom81 @Jillzarin Did you hear @teb2350 WORKED FOR @BRAVOTV and just got fired? I think she threatened Carole. Her real name is Townley.

    • Mene Seela says:

      wait … did JZ wrote the woman’s name?

    • 2Stupid says:

      Is that true? Didn’t she used to come here all the time?I know her and the Blkd by Jill Zarin lady are tight. I knew she came here too. I never really knew all the backstories, but I do know at one time she was a regular. Can anybody help me out with this?

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I think Teb used to be a poster here back in the day but I don’t know about BBJZ
        How dumb is JZ thinking Teb worked for Bravo because she was picked to be the Bravoholic? Seriously the woman is not that bright!! And why put her name out there again???

      • Eastbayca says:

        Yes she was a regular but JZ is jilusional that Teb or Blckd by JZ were employed by Bravo to harass/hate on her. She hasn’t accepted the concept that people didn’t like her. JZ is also claiming that Andy has a new job and that a new team is in place at Bravo…

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          She is sounding crazier by the minute!! She needs to step away from this mess-it’s making her look worse than she already is!!

        • Anne says:

          Andy is not a Bravo executive, so technically she is correct. His replacement as Exec VP was announced several months ago. I would imagine that his immediate staff either moved to his production company or took other jobs. Usually, people with Exec VP titles bring their own staff.

        • Powell says:

          Sighhhhhh. Snoreeeeee. If Andy stays or goes JZ isn’t coming back to Bravo. She just can’t get that thru her red headed skull.

    ROL has a story about Mandy Mindy Mopey the image consultant to Aviva who isn’t her image consultant.

    She sayeth … wait for it …. “They’re threatened by me”.
    Oh she also says “…let’s face it, Kristen Taekman is as fun as watching paint dry. She’s boring.” and “Heather was gunning to get me from the start and truly went after me. She told me to watch my back,” <- not the way I remember it.

    Shockingly she has a jewelry collection to sell to us.

    • BB says:

      I’m just wondering if she is truly worse than the rest of them or if it’s because she’s new and not following the pecking order like Kristen may be doing, you know, treading lightly at first. Or maybe it’s because she’s associated with Aviva and nobody likes Aviva. I truly don’t know because I’m not watching. But from what I’m reading about her, sounds like she fits the housewife mold to a tee (or is it tea?).

      • Mene Seela says:

        Hi BB, since you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing her yet the way Bravo chose to introduce her is .. well they didn’t really introduce her….
        She’s either been 1. hanging/glued to Aviva or 2. inexplicably included herself in the cast’s conversation circles at events.

        This week some of the other ladies started complaining about her repeated presence in the “WTF?” tone.
        Plus she was kinda hammered at LuLu’s and got into a big fight with Heather.

    I just saw a clip of Marie Osmond fainting on DWTS, now that looked like a a real faint. You could see it and could hear her hit the ground. To me it looked so unlike Lisa’s faint. It just makes me think all the more that Lisa fake fainted.

    • I think Marie fainted, I think Lisa has low blood pressure…I myself have low blood pressure and it is not unusual for me to get up too quickly or be doing something and put myself down on the floor…..if anyone is around I say, “going down”, my family is not phased by it at all. I stay for a minute or 2 and then get up slowly…..lol. I call it “A Free Head Rush, whoo hoo!!”

        But please to quote the movie above “take the juice! I want you to take the juice!”
        Be careful ❤

        But girl you are TALL! You better warn people !

      • PJ says:

        I’ve had low blood pressure my whole life. Usually when it gets really low I get the sweats which is the body kicking in adrenaline trying to normalize things. Didn’t see any of this from Lisa, just the “faint” which looked fake to me. Not to mention that when my blood pressure gets really low it doesn’t go away right away but takes time to normalize, drinking fluids often helps as dehydration can bring on low blood pressure. But Lisa herself does not claim low blood pressure she still claims she fainted there has been some controversy regarding this so I believe that if low blood pressure were involved Lisa would take out ads in every newspaper in the country to prove something was really wrong with her. Just my opinion.

        • I am sorry that you have to go thru that. I thought I heard Lisa say it at the reunion….something about it being “touch and go”…. I am not watching that drivel again to see…lol….there was a time that I would watch HWs stuff over and over, those days are past….


          • PJ says:

            Thank you PP, at least it’s better than high blood pressure. I had some surgery last week and came out of anesthesia with really low blood pressure, scared me. I wonder why the anesthesiologist didn’t pick up on it while I was still out. He blamed it on me sitting up too fast but I was not sitting up I was still laying down, it was so low I couldn’t get up.

            I didn’t hear Lisa say the low blood pressure part but did hear her say the touch and go part. I guess I laughed at that part so much that if she said it was low blood pressure I missed it.

            I’m with you on watching anything HW related more than once, I’m having trouble with once these days.

        • kit9 says:

          Oh, you know she would! It would be another chapter in her Ultimate Victim Tour. Tweets galore about it. Speaking of, I read thru Lisa’s TL a couple days ago and she is such an a**hole! Some poor guy made the unforgivable sin of simply saying he didn’t know who to believe-and Lisa flipped out told him to unfollow her. He then tweeted a response, completely respectful like his first tweet, simply explaining his first tweet. Well, Lisa the Tyrannical would have none of it! And, blocked him. So, unless you give her blind devotion, you’re out! It was so immature. Incredible.

          • PJ says:

            Oh that’s funny the Vanderpink ultimate victim tour of 2014. I’ve read some of her TL too and completely agree with you I think she is a real idiot, that’s my opinion anyway. Brandi seems to have stopped writing about Lisa but not so much the other way around.

    • kit9 says:

      Yep, now that’s a real faint. Marie fainted, Lisa acted. Badly.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I remember hoopla about Marie’s being a faux-faint©®™at that time. From **general** public. I may be wrong™

        I think the Lisa – FFGate2013©®™ was more for bravo viewers to analyze. ???

        I could be wrong.

        • kit9 says:

          Lisa’s was doubted by DWTS viewers, too, I remember, immediately after it aired. And, there’s that scene where Lisa is on some red carpet being asked by the press about it. Marie dropped straight down like a sack of potatoes. No slow roll down like Lisa did. No magical force keeping Lisa’s head and neck up as she goes down

        • PJ says:

          You could see that Marie’s faint was completely different from Lisa’s. Marie smacked down on the floor so unlike Lisa’s delicate faint.

    As for flipping out the only thing I found particularly telling was the talking head of Jeff’s when he said he was happy for Jenni. He was not in the same outfits as most other THs, it seemed to be shot from a different angle and he was quite serious. He said things had changed between them- both personally and professionally. I think this harkens to the bookgate when Jenni signed on for her book, and ALL THE NUMEROUS shady things jenni used for her wedding by Jeff’s clients. Jeff didn’t like it and when he doesn’t like it – I DONT like it! LOL I just agree that you don’t hit up clients or innocently- bashfully take offers from clients. No 🙅

    I have wayyyy too many Aries men in my life. I just found out Jeff’s bday is the same as my father 🙂 . Love it. #nopatience #willworkforever&neverretire #gottalove #dontcare

    Ps Zach Morris’s (ex to Jeff probst’s wife) wife has a boy so she is so skinny. Jenni was much bigger. I know it’s a o.w.’s tale but I still see it a lot in boy vs girl mommies to be.

  39. VV™ says:

    Jill, too skinny up there.
    The difference is like Lisa, many of us at the time didn’t know the true Brandi ( yes, I know you did but many didn’t me included). Kyle chose to continue to associate and be very friendly to Brandi after the season filmed and after she saw how dirty she plays.
    #kylenobobbyfischer #kyleblindedbyhate #kylewantstobequeenatallcost

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Brandi is the exact same person now as she was then. Lisa saw how Brandi treated other people then and she enjoyed every minute of it. It’s not like Brandi just became the person she is. Lisa saw how Brandi was-and she didn’t care b/c Brandi was entertaining Lisa…until she wasn’t. You want Kyle to be the bad guy for being friends with Brandi but your Queen is forgiven for b/c she didn’t know Brandi was so awful..maybe your Queen is as smart and savvy as you think. Or maybe your Queen knew Brandi was awful al along but enjoyed watching her spill secrets as long as they weren’t hers. You can call Kyle and Brandi BFFs but I don’t see them ever being as close as Brandi and Lisa were.

      • VV™ says:

        You’re missing the point. “I” didn’t see it and a lot if people here didn’t see it. You can’t just say we did and ignored. How do you know how I and others felt?

        Again the point is Kyle sided with her and became BFF with her after Kyle saw what she did to Adrienne and Lisa.
        There are many tweets amongs them, pics and blog comments. Kyle is “recently” distancing from her after the bankruptcy comment (that was last month). Kyle is also seing a lot of Brandi backlash and is backpedaling her friendship with her.
        #kyledumbasarock #kylespredictale

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I didn’t say how anyone here felt VV-I said Lisa saw who Brandi was last season-as did a lot of other people-not only me. Lisa saw what Brandi did with Adrienne last season and she laughed her friggen head off at Brandi’s disgusting remarks to Joyce this season-how can anyone say Lisa is smart and then say she didn’t know exactly who Brandi was-she knew and she loved it-until Brandi turned that behavior onto her-then the real back peddling began. But it was too late-I got to see who Lisa was by her defense of the indefensible. Lisa was still BFF with Brandi after she knew what kind of person she was but that’s ok-it’s Kyle who is stupid.

          • VV™ says:

            At the SUR tasting? I don’t recall any HW laughing at Brandi when she outed Adrienne. They were all shocked at what B said.
            You seem to forget Bernie’s actions in all of this. He was Adrienne’s mouthpiece and had been bad mouthing Lisa since prior to the start of filming S3. Bernie was also bad mouthing Brandi so Lisa and Brandi had that in common.
            Lisa is not backpedaling. She likes to pick up strays and like with Cedric, it came back to bite her.
            What Kyle’s excuse for getting so close to Brandi?

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I didn’t say anyone laughed at the Sur tasting VV-read my comment and you will see that-I said Lisa laughed her friggen head off at what Brandi said about and to Joyce.
              It’s funny that every other housewife has a mouth piece but when it was suggested that Brandi was Lisa’s mouthpiece the Queens subjects lost their minds. Who cares about Bernie? Most people know better than to listen to what comes out of his mouth but not the Queen.
              Lisa is totally back peddling-totally! She can’t get far enough back-she realized that the girl who she embraced and loved and laughed with is nothing but trouble-NOW-but when she was going after the people the Queen didn’t like she couldn’t have been happier-that’s who Lisa is.
              Why is ok for Lisa to take Brandi in when they had a common enemy but you seem to think it’s so awful of Kyle to even talk to Brandi? I don’t understand it. Kyle is stupid and a coward for being friends with Brandi but Lisa is some sort of saint for taking in strays? And not just taking them in but defending them even when she knew she was lying and even when she knew she was indefensible? That doesn’t make Lisa a saint it makes her stupid and it makes her a playa…and a typical housewife.

              • VV™ says:

                Lisa thought Brandi was a different person. “I” and many others here did too. We know better now and so does Lisa.
                Lisa is not backpedaling. She realizes now who Brandi is.
                On the other hand, Kyle choses to be Brandi’s friend after what went down with Adrienne and Lisa.
                Lisa and Brandi started to be friends AFTER Brandi defended her at reunion S2. Yofo entered the pic on S3 and Brandi becomes close to her so no need for The Queen. Brandi starts backstabbing her and continues to S4.
                My point with Bernie is that Adrienne was using him to bad mouth both Lisa and Brandi at the sane time. So, they had a common enemy Adrienne.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Lisa chose to be Brandi’s friend after what went down with Adrienne and knowing how Brandi did things-she saw it with her own eyes but chose to enjoy it. I think there are a lot of ex Brandi fans who saw how she really was but also enjoyed it because she was going after Adrienne and most people hated her. As soon as Brandi turned on the Queen-all the while not changing one bit from last season-her fans jumped ship. Brandi hasn’t changed-not one tiny little bit-she only changed her target. Lisa was friends with her while she outed a family secret-Lisa defended her against the lies she told-Lisa even told a few lies herself in her defense of Brandi. Lisa knew Brandi was wrong and defended her anyway…sorry but I don’t see Kyle doing that-in fact I don’t see Kyle doing much to Foster this so called friendship her haters think she is having with Brandi. I think Kyle knows who Brandi is and always has. For a stupid person she saw through the girl when many others chose not to.

                  • Powell says:

                    The only thing I liked Brandi was not letting Adrienne push her around. If I could have gone thru the tv at Brandi when she outed A & Ps secret, I would have. That was disgusting. I don’t know how Brandi thought that was a good thing to do. No one can say anything about her kids but Brandi can say something about someone else’s kids. Wrong. And I was believing the being sued boo hoo hoo that Brandi was selling.

          • Powell says:

            I didn’t know who Brandi was but Lisa totally did. Not saying Lisa 100% agreed w/what Brandi did esp Adrienne but Lisa did enjoy most of the ride, but Lisa was teetering on “she’s in a bad way. She’s had it hard”. Lisa said that less and less convincing and yes saw the viewer backlash and backed off of the friendship. Hey, Lisa is a biz woman and knows viewers bring dollars into her biz. It’s just a shame Kyle didn’t get that. But time will tell. The Richards sisters and Yo may leave Brandi in a trail of dust.

    I think these two make a good couple. Too bad Mama Joyce will have to beg on the street now 😉


    • chismosa™ says:

      I guess I will watch the Bridal Kandi/
      Kandi-ed Married show.
      How weird the episode where Mo.Tucker talks to mama Joyce is this Sunday. Weird.

      I wonder if Wendy will actually mention this Monday. Kandi hates her and feels she comes at Kandi. We’ll see.

      We can really call these people MOTHERTUCKERS. it’s awesome.
      That’s their name!

    Good morning!

    Keep on chatting here!

    I don’t have something new this morning to post and I’m not feeling like making a blog about these HW weddings. Yawn. And same goes with the absolute nonsense going on over at Twitter with some Bravo fans…oh, and the one we love to hate. Sparing my brain cells from trying to decipher the BSC!

    • ladebra says:

      Talk amongst yourselves! 😛

    • chismosa™ says:

      No prob Tarts. Thanks – !

      Interestingly — I thought at least — the E ticker put Taylor’s wedding news first and didn’t mention Kandi until 2 stories later.
      Isn’t that weird ??? Taylor’s not ON the RH anymore and Kandi is on the highest rated one, with a spinoff on the way.

      I just found it odd. Maybe because of the suicide ?

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        I saw the Grifter on E! and she may have gotten the press release to E! first – or it could have been the WE channel. The wedding was filmed for a show (sorry, forgot the name) on WE to air this summer.

        Wonder if Bravo will make a Kandi & Todd wedding special? I’m thinking no, because then they would have taken the opportunity to mention it..and don’t on the article posted on their website.

    • boston02127 says:

      TT~~~~Get a cozy blanket and chillax for the day, you deserve it.

    • Powell says:

      I got in on the act tweeting TEB. JZ tweeted me, TEB some nonsense that she was told some guy David, and TEB has over 90,000 tweets. Basically saying TEB is Bravoholic. She has nothing going on so this is her new hobby I guess.

  43. boston02127 says:

    24 hours ago……Brandi’s tweet:
    Charity wedding dress sale Only 150 wedding dresses sold! Call me with ur credit card orders taken! Number for orders coming soon

    5 minutes ago……Brandi’s tweet:
    can everyone who sent in credit card reciepts screen shot and resend them to me!
    She’s not the sharpest knife in the draw.

    • trudie says:

      That is too funny. If she was the “accountant’ for this task, I pity her team. They must be ready to shoot her.

      She’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but some think she is preeeety.

    • Mene Seela says:

      Did Brandi lose track of their sales? Is she texting her team or the dress buyers? If the buyers have “receipts” didn’t they get them from the CA players on Brandi’s team already? Or whatever…. hope she gets a whopping in the boardroom.

  44. boston02127 says:

    Watching RHONY. George is really a filthy pig.

  45. ladebra says:

    TT thank you to you and MTH for keeping everything going while NMD has the trip of a lifetime! I really can’t say I understand what it takes to keep us going, but I can imagine and it’s probably more time consuming than that, so big big thanks for all you guys, and BB and HydrangeaHussy and Ramonacoaster and Kip and Starzy and everyone else who gives up their time to blog.

  46. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    This is about the lunch Joyce had with Yolanda

    • plainviewsue says:

      Thanks Jill for screen saving. This really pisses me off, and if I was Lisa, this would annoy me to no end. Andy went after Lisa and everyone’s issues with her. Yet doesn’t show this pivotal part of the season??? When Yolanda thought she’d have Brandi on her team, along with Brandi, to take down Lisa.

      Shame on Bravo editors. Are they afraid of upsetting the king David Forster?? I don’t get it.

    • Powell says:

      Oooh. Bloop!

    • Mene Seela says:

      Next season YoYo will get her turn as the piñata.

    • trudie says:

      refresh my recollection please – what happened at this lunch?

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Yolanda apparently tried to get Joyce to start something with Lisa-I don’t remember the exact details but Yolanda was pushing Joyce to say things about Lisa…something like that..others will fill in what I left out I’m sure.

        • plainviewsue says:

          Someday I will get a smart phone, so I can screen save!! I got a bunch of DM’s from Joyce.

          I will cut and paste:

          None of that made it! I’m so upset! I wish They showed the real lost footage or new footage of everything we shot. My children’s interaction, My show Siberia, queen of the universe… Instead they are just repeating me talking about pipi! Seriously!
          So upsetting

        • plainviewsue says:

          Yolanda was pushing to have Joyce talk about how rude Lisa was when Joyce went to fix her hair. When Joyce wasn’t biting, Yolanda stopped the conversation. Once Yo and Brandi knew they didn’t have control over Joyce, they tried to destroy her.

          Andy, Andy, Andy. This is what needed to be discussed. Shame on him.

          • Jan (TexasTart) says:

            Shame on him. I wish they had removed him from being an executive producer of Real Housewives and just let him keep his silly talk show. There are a lot of true fans of the HW franchises, in the entertainment industry that could serve to be FAIR hosts of reunions.

    • PJ says:

      Probably never happened anyway. #dramaqueen

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Maybe it did..it wouldn’t be the first time bravo didn’t show something that they had on film. I think if it didn’t happen Yolanda would have said so-the fact that she sat there while Joyce talked about and never defended herself makes me think it happened.

        • Powell says:

          Secrets Revealed comes on on Monday.

        • PJ says:

          I don’t believe Joyce I think she is a self promoting, exaggerating drama Queen. Yolanda may have said nothing because it never happened or Yolanda may have said something that was cut out of the reunion..

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Joyce hasn’t been caught in a lie yet but we see how Yolanda likes to talk,about everyone and she thinks she the director…if Joyce was lying there would be a tweet about it or it would be in the blogs-if not by Yolanda at least by Brandi. Brandi would not miss a chance to call Joyce on something. If Joyce was lying brandi would be telling everyone in the whole wide world.

            • PJ says:

              I don’t think they care enough about Joyce to call her out. Still don’t believe Joyce.

    • VV™ says:

      If Yolanda with a straight face can deny she talked bad about Lisa to Kim and Kyle in Paris at reunion S3, she can certainly deny this took place. Yolanda is a backstabber. She thinks she’s above her castmates and has a superiority complex.

  47. Powell says:

    Hey peeps. Happy Saturday. It’s 55 out and very windy. I hope you’re having good weather. So what’s up w/everyone?

  48. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Ok seriously? Televised bullying? …the victim tour is never ending.

    • Powell says:

      Well it wasn’t bullying to me. One after the other throwing mud for ridic reasons YES.

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

        Let’s visit the word bullying. If these women went to her work and yelled at her there, it would be bullying. If these women kept going to her house, yelling at her and throwing eggs at her house, it would be bullying.

        Talking shit about her behind her back, going to the tabloids with all kinds of fake stories, and taking to twitter to spread lies – is not bullying to someone on tv. To a teenager, this would indeed be bullying.

        What happened to Lisa is that she was “gang-bitched” but twitter limits you to 40, so the bully word is used. And frankly – whatever. It’s over now.

        Now I’m worried about NY being made into a stupid bitch-fest over Aviva being nasty and Carole retaliating by regurgitating it every scene. Nobody wants to see this “reality.”

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      She should continue to tweet things like this
      This is a nice article!

      • Powell says:

        Very nice article. I’m glad Pandora and Jason are involved. See. Lisa and family are doing so many things and Brandi hitches her wagon to Kyle and Yo? Dumb dumb move.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I really liked the article too-it’s the side of Lisa that made me like her from the start.

  49. Powell says:

    I just read TexasTart’s link above that Kandi & Todd got married. I hope momma Joyce butts out of their marriage. Also read that Taylor and John got married and it was taped for,David Tutera’s show.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Powell, I really could care less about the Grifter, but mentioning that her wedding was filmed for WE/David Tutera got me to thinking….how she went from RHOBH to Couples Therapy, to (whatever it’s called) wedding show on WE.

      So what is she going to pull out of her hat next to keep employed?
      Predictions anyone?

      Honestly, I think the ONLY reason she got any air time after Season 2 is because of Russell’s death. Is that mean to say? I don’t know, but I said it and you know, she has NO appeal to me, never did, so it’s how I justify that anyone would hire her to be on their reality show! I she wasn’t even a ‘first string’ HW for heaven’s sake! She could go all Oklahoma on you! No offense to OK people…they’re her words, not mine! 😉

      • chismosa™ says:

        Your reason is the exact reason I said above I was surprised she was primary news over Kandi. I don’t get it.

  50. Powell says:

  52. Powell says:

    LOL guys. JZ sent me a follow request. HAHA!! I don’t hardly want her following me.

  53. Powell says:

    Watching the reunion part 3. Now I hope everybody on that stage used q-tips the night before and cleaned out their ears. Ken said to Brandi I don’t ever think I could let you back into my life. Brandi starts crying, I don’t see any tears but she starts crying and says, I don’t want back in. Ken says at the moment that’s how I feel. Brandi says I have nothing to say. I’m emotionally exhausted. Andy says to Brandi do you understand why he’s hurt with you. Brandi says for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction. Yeah When I get hurt I sting back. That’s who I am. I’ve always been a fighter. You know I love you. Ken said yeah I know that but you have said some awful things. Brandi said it’s not nice to be dropped. It’s not. When I’m in a bad space you pulled away. I need someone to stay. So with all that said Brandi has stabbed Lisa in the back because Lisa and Ken had had enough w/her. You dropped me when I needed someone so to get you back I’m taking you down whatever way I can. So in conclusion if Lisa had not backed away from Brandi, Brandi would have never started saying Lisa manipulated me, Lisa treated me like a child. After that little speech if Kyle couldn’t see that Brandi rest has no beef w/Lisa. This was Brandi going for the jugular Lisa dropped Brandi. DAMN!!! These women are stupid.

        I didn’t think i was either, but reading here and talking to people about it, i realized i am missing part of the story. I have been following it very well, but the beginning was very confusing to me. Like it went too fast, i figured those explanations were from the first season.

  56. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    How’s Saturday treating you folks? I spent half the day shopping for supplies and the other half at work. Taking a break, before commencing with cooking dinner. I scrolled down to find where I left off on this page and that big pic of JZ about scared the shit out of me! And I gotta say, I do NOT scare easily, lol.

              Well you kind of have to understand the history of the trolls around here.. It isn’t worth reliving.. How about we chalk it up to misunderstanding and say welcome to the group.To your question.. May of 2010 may be as close as you’re going to get.. She posted at several sites I think before IHJZ actually got started. One that may be able to help you is the person called Terry Alley who is linked in the blogroll to the right at the top portion of the page.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I think I remember it starting the season that Jill and Bethenny got into a fight, as it was Jill’s treatment of Bethenny that inspired it. Before then, Lynn use to post a someone called Terry Aley aka @rawveggies on twitters site. He might remember, he was the one who suggested she start her own blog.

      • I get to follow Lynn sometine before Scary Island… It was when JZ got Bethenny phone call and the Countless was there and Jill did not tell her that Luanne was there “You know what, Bethenny? We are done”!!!! LOL! “She doesn’t deserve to be in the same place where I am”… Remember? And Bethenny was there outside in the street… alone and crying… with her red dress and coat… Haa! I was 27 Lynn’s follower… We spent in “IHJZ” “Hub Pages” all the night waiting to hear from Bethenny’s news… When JZ sent a tweet that B had a boy (BabyGate 2010)

        • That poor little rich girl in her red coat….broke my heart…never occurred to me at the time that production told her to call Jill and there just happened to be cameras and Lumann there….I was so young and naive…

      I believe Lisa did faint. People forget she was filming for DWTS and after she fainted, she went straight to the hospital. Again, haters are gonna hate…starting with her castmates Kim and Kyle who dedicated an entire segment of the show to ridicule, mock and call Lisa a lier.

    • What I realized by trying to find this, because I knew I wasn’t making it up, lol, is this….It was CONFUSING!!!! I knew it was episode 2, so I thought, so I skimmed episode 2, and then I went to episode 1 and GUESS WHAT, #REUNIONRIPOFF….it was all the same stuff….and TOO much KIM, comparatively speaking…. I thought I was loosing my mind….it was ridiculous…they really blew it and I already said I was done…after Monday night of course, lol!!
