Aviva: It Takes a Village

It perhaps wasn’t the best choice of words and as a writer I should have known better, I suppose, but I still believe it was clear to everyone what I meant when I said, “it takes a village” to make a book. It does. I’ve said this all before – in the Acknowledgements of Leggy Blonde on the show, in interviews.

I’m beginning to wonder if Aviva is using a ghostwriter for her blog.  From her first season blogs, she used to be very direct, angry and whiny.  This writer is playful, long-winded, sarcastic and circuitous.  What remains the same is the self-victimization.

But the haters can’t seem to get past the phrase — and, you know, I don’t blame them; it sounds lame. There must be a more felicitous way to say it. Would it sound better if I said “team” rather than “village?” Or maybe “coven” (that’s more Housewifey), “Clack,” “Minyan,” “Platoon,” “Mob,” “Posse” (very Heather), “Clique,” “Band,” “Troop,” “Society,” “Crowd,” “Gang,” “Party,” “Crew,” “Cluster” (“cluster f—?”), “Committee” – yes, committee: that sounds more democratic and modest than “village” or “ME.” It takes a committee to make a book.

Aviva’s ghostwriter knows how to use a thesaurus.

But before I abandon “village” altogether, here’s some background that may enlighten you to how I was seduced: The phrase purportedly comes from an African Proverb — “It takes a village to raise a child.” It was used in the title of the 1996 bestseller, It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us by then First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton about Clinton’s quest to find a way to improve the lives of children. The Dallas Morning News called it “a textbook for caring . . . filled with truths that are worth a read, and a reread.” (Maybe a must read for Housewives?)

This must be in response to Carole’s blog last week that referenced Hillary Rodham Clinton’s comment regarding age shaming.  One upping using Hillary references.

The Acknowledgments section opens with “It takes a village to bring a book into the world, as everyone who has written one knows.” That was a long time ago . . . before the concept was considered weak by Carole and the “we do it alone” set. (Can’t you just see Carole chopping down those trees to make the paper to print the words that no one is allowed to change a letter of?) It’s also in the title of Jane Cowen-Fletcher’s children’s book It Takes a Village, Jethro Collins’ It Takes a Village to Murder Your Husband, and Family Guy: It Takes a Village Idiot and I Married One (maybe these two latter ones should also be required Housewife reading). So for now, I’ll stick with being grateful to everyone in my committee. I couldn’t have done it without them. And again, congratulations to Carole for doing it on her own without help, villagers, or committees. I now know what an impossible task that is.

Aviva must have told the ghostwriter to over exaggerate in order to avoid addressing what happened during the episode such as lying to Luann about Carole calling her a bad mother and lying about Heather threatening her. Heather was warning her.

By the way, as gorgeous and natural as we are, I think you could say that it also takes a village — make that, committee — to make a Real Housewife real. Makeup, stylists, Spanx (or those knock-offs Heather pushes), eyelashes, Botox (those foreheads aren’t going to inject themselves), boobs, tucks, tightening, designer spare legs, hair (color and cut), manies, pedies, peels, etc. God forbid natural women should also have a little help with their words.

I hope the NY housewives don’t start looking like the Beverly Hills housewives. BH is too shiny.  NY looks more natural.

To me, this week’s episode belonged to Sonja. I remain oved and delighted at the way she puts herself out there. She’s so full of courage, generosity, and good nature. What a brilliant counter to the petty spats breaking out all over Housewifeville. I still maintain Sonja is the Realest; Carole and I are unfortunate distractions. Sonja should have her own show.

It is too bad you couldn’t put a lock on your friend Amanda’s mouth.  Her rude and obnoxious comments ruined Sonja’s performance.  I can see why your friends with her.  Birds of a feather.

And finally, Carole says what I’m doing by asking about her book is “slander” and “illegal.” This is not something that was covered when I went to law school, but then maybe Carole has some special insight. Illegal, Carole? Really? Who you gonna call?

Don’t bait her.  You never know what could happen.

LuAnn: What’s Going on With Amanda?

Big surf and hunky instructors, burlesque, BBQ and battles. . .This episode had it all (and I’m glad to be back in the action). The show opens with Carole saying that she’s not a “Hamptons Girl” as she’s driving out to spend a fun-filled weekend at the beach. I fell in love with the Hamptons the first time I visited, and I get out to my home there as much as I can. If this makes me a “Hamptons Girl,” I’ll proudly wear the moniker. Carole looked like she fit right in as an “HG,” flirting with the hot Israeli surfer!

I heard Luann is selling her home in Bridgehampton and bought a new one in Sag Harbor.  The house in Sag Harbor is beautiful and charming.  Summer in the Hamptons absorbs the energy of city dwellers and becomes this magical, fun place where you can enjoy an incredible nightlife, parties galore and beautiful views.  The only problem is the heavy traffic and the rude, short tempered people whose expectations didn’t quite meet the amount of money they spent going out there.

I had fun at Sonja’s “Caber-lesque” and I think it’s great that she sold hundreds of tickets to support LGBT youth. Her $12.99 outfit worked pretty well until the “wardrobe malfunction” (you get what you pay for) but this just added to the fun. Sonja’s very brave to throw herself out there like she does, and while parts of her monologue were cringe-inducing in a good way, she made me LAUGH.

You have a very distinct deep throaty laugh.

What’s going on with Aviva’s image consultant “Amanda” and why does she need to bring her everywhere? Seriously, if Aviva’s trying to stay out of trouble, Amanda’s the wrong choice for a wingman. We were there to support Sonja regardless of how we felt about her performance and Amanda’s comments were way out-of-line, especially with people she barely knows! Her blurting out, “That’s what menopause looks like,” was very rude and I say if this is what it looks like, then women shouldn’t be so afraid! Sonja looks great for her age.

It would have been better if you had confronted Amanda about her choice of words during Sonja’s performance instead of inviting her to your party.

When Heather greeted me at Sonja’s show, she purposely avoided Aviva, and maybe that was a smart choice after their most recent interactions. When I said to Aviva that Carole is not a “girls” kind of girl, I meant that sometimes Carole isn’t as supportive of her girlfriends as she should be. A “girls” kind of girl likes to hang out and have fun with her female friends, and she believes in girl-power. I don’t know if Sonja put Aviva next to Carole or if one of her college interns did so without knowing their history.

Oh please!  I love Sonja but she was stirring the pot putting Carole next to Aviva.

I planned a summer BBQ for the girls hoping that the laid-back atmosphere of my home would help foster friendships. So it meant a lot to me that Carole apologized, and considering our history, this tete-a-tete was long overdue. After my chat with Carole, I thought the evening was going pretty well. . .then all hell broke loose! Things started getting weird when Sonja and Aviva sealed it with a kiss. . .I’m glad Carole is more of a talker than a kisser!

The kiss seemed forced and overdone.  Sonja so wants to be on Aviva’s good side this season.  She doesn’t want to set Veevs off.

As the “conversation” became more and more heated, Kristen tried to calm the girls down but she couldn’t get a word in edgewise, and neither could I. As you can see, I tried to deescalate the situation by offering dessert and suggesting that the girls talk it out in different rooms. When it became apparent that nothing in my bag of hostess tricks was going to work, I gave up and poured myself a glass of champagne. Cheers!

I had to laugh out loud when they didn’t follow you like the sheep you thought they were.

Kristen: “All Hell Broke Loose”

Who doesn’t love “Sonja with a Sexy J,” as Heather always says. She is truly just fabulous! Her Caburlesque performance was great. It was. I give her props for getting up there and performing. I sure as hell could not have done that! Could she have been more prepared? Yes, absolutely, but that’s her way of doing things. Her way kinda just works. People love it. She has this way of just pulling it off. She is beautiful and smart and just so damn sexy. How amazing does her body look?! I do think that Sonja could be doing a show like that for a living. Vegas, baby, Vegas. She was born to perform!

I can believe that she wasn’t prepared and I can believe that she pulled it off.  As long as people are entertained, that is what matters.

Sonja and her interns. The car battery, bringing her drinks at parties, no hot water in her house in the city? Every time I went over there you couldn’t use the downstairs bathroom because of plumbing issues? I really think she needs to get rid of everyone pay a handyman and pay one great qualified person to come in and manage her. Maybe a professional assistant? But, that’s just me.

Yes, having just one professional assistant probably wouldn’t clog up the plumbing as much as several interns.  However if Sonja can’t afford to have hot water in her house and a handyman come fix her plumbing issues then how can she afford to pay a professional assistant?

Amanda Sanders. From the moment I met her I just didn’t get the image consultant thing, right? Please tell me you know what I mean! She was just so rude the night of Sonja’s big show. Classless, and just plain old DRUNK. You get up there, honey, and see how you do! Heather was right. Who the hell keeps inviting her? Oh right. . .Aviva… 

Amanda needs an image consultant to tell her to wear a bra and to not get shitfaced at a party.  If there was a competition between Kristen and Amanda regarding who got to hold the golden apple, so far I’m glad Kristen won.

Ugh, the night of LuAnn’s barbecue started so great. Lu’s house is just so amazing! It was a beautiful summer night. Lu is such a wonderful host on every level. It was very awkward for us all knowing that both Aviva and Carole were there, but we put that aside and were all having a great time.  I was so excited that the two of them were finally going to be in the same room together so they could hopefully hash it out and we could stop with the she said/she said. Then all hell broke loose. I really don’t know what happened. I tried and tried to talk but after a few tries, I just didn’t care anymore. I was ready to go. SOOOO over this #Bookgate.

I loved during the start of that scene Josh was sitting next to you.  Then he must have moved when the conversation was getting crazier. He stood next Jon in the doorway just like spectators.  They were clearly going to steer clear from the conversation and they were clearly entertained.

Heather: A Lady Has Her Limits

For those of you who don’t know, The Hamptons are beautiful! The beaches there are among some of the most beautiful in the world. The Hamptons have this fabulous and glamorous side, and it is very real. It is like being on the set of a movie with gorgeous mansions and expensive cars everywhere you look, but too much Botox for anyone to take it seriously. I do get a real kick out of it though. I love the Hamptons. I so appreciate the beaches, the beauty, and the local businesses that help to make it great and all of my friends and family who hang out there. If you’ve never been you must put a Hamptons trip on your bucket list.

It is very expensive too.  The local businesses make sure to charge city prices for everything.  The best time to visit is September and October when it is still warm and the city folk go back to the city and the locals take back the Hamptons.

“Sonja with a Sexy J” is really one of a kind. She is a whole can-of-mess, but I gotta say, she is most lovable. Despite the ups and downs I have had with her, Sonja doesn’t have a malicious bone in her body. She never means harm. She’s no dummy either. Sonja knows what’s up and when she realizes she is in for far more than she can handle she mans up and leans on just doing what she loves to do– being her true eccentric self, and she goes for it! That’s what tonight’s LGBT fundraiser is all about after-all, isn’t it?

Sonja was a courageous hot mess.  I wonder why she decided to wing it when she had rehearsed with her backup dancers.  Is there a vitamin or supplement to help with concentration? I think Sonja should start taking that.  She is all over the place with her thoughts, plans and ideas.  No amount of interns can keep it straight.

LuLu! I am so happy to see her! It’s been weeks and I am always happy hanging with Lu. She is a true friend of mine, and we always have a good time together. I adore her and Carole both so the situation between them is unfortunate. Especially because they both actually like each other! I just need them to connect on another level but tonight, with the whole Aviva drama, it is not the right moment.

Now that Luann and Carole made up, you guys can be the three amigos.

Right before the act, I notice the terrible seating arrangements and I quickly switch around the placecards that had Aviva and Carole seated together. I felt I was covering for Sonja’s oversight and, with a quick one-two switch, I was acting for the betterment of the entire evening, so we could all sit together and support Sonja on her night. What I didn’t anticipate was Aviva’s image consultant’s loud, obnoxious comments! Sure, it’s easy to criticize the performer from the shadows — but this is for charity and awareness after all, you cow! Aviva’s image consultant’s garish play-by-play commentary of Sonja’s performance was almost surreal. Could someone actually be that rude? (Oh! Just you wait!!) All I am thinking is “Who is this woman who keeps coming around with her opinions and her nose turned up and boobs hanging down!” Ugh! She is just so annoying and now she’s just plain rude.

Amanda was probably sitting there thinking “You know what this performance needs? My annoying, stupid voice.”

LuAnn persuades me to brush it off and we get to dancing. . .even joining Sonja on stage! In the end, we had a lot of belly laughs, the night was a success for LGBT and we know how to bring the fun wherever we go!

I saw some pictures of the event.  You guys were having a blast.

But now, what the hell is Harry doing lunching with his ex-wife on a set up? Oh! What Harry Dubin does so well. . .women! Ya gotta love Harry, but his date, not so much.

It seemed like Harry was set up to be Amanda’s date so he can be at Luann’s while Jacques is away.  I wonder if production was thinking along that storyline to have the ex possibly causing trouble with Luann and Jacques.

Why can’t I remember her name? Oy! Whoever she is, she’s here again and now I can see among other things she’s also completely two-faced sucking up to Sonja after talking so terribly behind her back! Ugh, it doesn’t matter. . .We have bigger fish to fry. Sonja and Lu think it is time for a Carole and Aviva sitdown and are hoping for a quickie makeup. Not a good idea. Lu doesn’t at all understand what Aviva did to Carole with her ridiculous representations and false accusations. It was beyond the pale. . .not something you can simply brush under the carpet and there are some real issues here. Sonja should know better! She knows the sting all too well. Sonja knows how it feels to be on the receiving end of an Aviva rant and it’s never simple.

I heard even Aviva wants to pretend she is not friends with what’s her name.

Carole is a true author and the process of writing for her is very personal. She is an artist. Aviva not only made the entire field of writing, journalism, and publishing seem like a joke with her “long email” descriptions and the “word on the street” stories in her head, but she also cast doubt on a dear friend’s career with lies. I have a personal problem with these things. I am seeing a pattern that is glaringly obvious and not so pretty in someone I called a friend and I am no sitting duck.

I guess you would have been next.  She is already calling your product imitation Spanx.

However, I am not going to threaten Aviva over it. Nor did I. I am honest with Aviva about how I feel about what she’s done. It’s not an “icy reception” and I’m not playing games. I am not feeling you Aviva! I am upset by your behavior and it’s not getting any better with this image consultant of yours constantly flanking you and flapping her jaw. I’ve about had it with this bulls— behavior of Aviva’s and she wants to know why? So I am trying to tell her and trying to hold composure but even a lady (who says f— a lot), has her limits. . .

Hey girl this is housewives.  You’re not supposed to care about your composure.  You need to bring it.  Unfortunately I think Aviva is too self-centered to understand or care.

    That Ramonacoaster tells it like it is! “Amanda needs an image consultant to tell her to wear a bra and to not get shitfaced at a party.” 😆 Thanks for the contribution to the blog today!

    The sun is masked behind the clouds in Central Texas this morning, but I hope a little sunshine is with each of you today! Have a good one!

  2. Is anyone else getting a warning from your server regarding this site?

  3. If Luann was offended by Amanda during Sonja’s performance, she shouldn’t have been laughing right along with her.

    Great job Ramonacoaster.


    • Rebecca – been watching reruns of GOT all weekend so very excited for new, bigger dragons to premiere! Happy Sunday everyone – go dragons!

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

        I know. I’ve been craving lemon cakes all day so I’m about to make a trip to the store.

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

        Here we go:

        • Oh my favorite is on where coming up is Dany buying the Unsullied – love the dragon in that shot! I stayed up and watched it Friday night too! Never get tired of it. I liked how they changed in the TV show that Dany didn’t speak Valarian where in the book she did – really added to the scene. I like GOT but George Martin is one messed up dude – wasn’t Dany like 12 when she married Drogo in the book?

  4. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I hope you’ve had a great weekend.

  5. Happy Sunday Everyone! Thank you Ramonacoaster for the Blogs Blogged! Xxxxxx!

  6. Powell says:

    I think again we have HWs that have different views of an experience. Aviva is crazy if she thinks Carole doesn’t acknowledge that many people are involved in the publishing of a book. Carole wrote her book and several people had their hands in getting it on the shelves of bookstores. Aviva w/the assistance of someone(ghostwriter) and several people had their hands in getting it on shelves. Every author had many people involved in getting their book on shelves. None do it on their own. So to Leg does that mean every writer has a ghostwriter? I don’t get Leg at all.

  7. Cityside says:

    Can anyone explain the TEB and Wall Street Lady soga going on about bravoholic? The short version if possible. I know it involves JZ somehow…..

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Hi Cityside, I’m not inclined to touch that insanity with a 10 foot pole! You could find someone’s version of a summary at and offers their explanation for their axing of The Bravoholic account from Twitter. Neither of the names you mention appear in the articles, but it might be insightful.

      • Cityside says:

        Not sure I really want to know, but if it is something with JZ being in touch with reality well than hell yea….Lets see crazy. Oh wait, we have Aviva and Brandi….never mind (in my best roseann roseanna danna voice)

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I think there was a lot of he said/she said stuff going on but from what I heard, someone accused WSL of having a troll account that was harassing Teb and one of her friends. The troll account was suppose to be a parody of the blocked by Jill Zarin account. But the person who told me the backstory (Ms.MaryMac) said that the ‘parody account’ was actually created a few months before the actual Blocked By Jill Zarin account.

      So I guess a big online fight ensued and WSL supposedly tweeted Tebs personal home address.

      Now the Ms. Mary Mac account is gone…I don’t know what happened but I guess some folks ran her off of twitter.

      I am not sure how WSL plays into the Bravoholic saga, I didn’t even know what a Bravoholic was until a couple of days ago lol

      But from what I have seen pieced together here and on someone elses blog was Teb got named the Bravoholic.

      She thought that Carol’s remark to Harry about his and Aviva’s divorce was nasty so she tweeted to Carol something like “I understand your husband’s death”. And Carol and the rest of the twitter universe blew up over it. This is is just my personal opinion, but I don’t think Teb really meant the remark, I think she was just trying to use hyperbole to draw attention to Carol’s remark about the divorce. Granted, it was poorly executed and the backlash should have been anticipated.

      So then, Carol’s assistant then got involved and tweeted a bunch more of Teb’s personal info. Then Bravo supposedly canceled/suspended the Bravoholic contest.

      And now JIll Zarin is chiming in…

      I have no idea who is right or who is wrong in this whole mess. I just plan on staying in my own lane while on twitter lol.

      • Cityside says:

        I thought WSL and TEB were the same person.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          LOL, No, they really are two different people. Lynn had met them both in real life and they were photographed.

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

        Somebody posted “somewhere” last week, that in order to be the bravoholic you had to agree to some rules, and one of them included not to tweet nasties about the cast members. I doubt Carole actually got the account closed down, but anybody knowing these rules probably stepped up and complained about what went down.

      • Eastbayca says:

        From my observations….Carol’s assistant didn’t tweet any of Teb’s personal info, that has been done by only WSL and JZ. But then I observed the nonsense whilst sipping pinot grigio.

      • Eastbayca says:

        JZ is acting jilusional being a victim of torture by those employed by bravo, her supposed torturers are Teb and BBJZ.

    • keeponrockingme says:

      I’m late with this update, but I found this to be informative:

  8. ladebra says:

    Maybe this is what happened to dragons also? Hmmmm

  9. Powell says:

    Congrats great aunt JNNTJ. Congrats to your niece that she’s having a Princess. 🙂

  10. Powell says:

    Boston you started a fun game last night. Looks like you all had fun.

  11. Powell says:

    TexasTart I’m seeing something I’ve never seen before. At the bottom it has options that my comment is posting to. WordPress, Twitter, FB, and Google+ and you can logout or change on the posting options.

  12. Ok so some of you saw that I was having problems with FIL on FB. He picked a fight on my nephews FB page yesterday with a poster over football. Yep football.

    I then in turn told everyone in our family to “unfriend” him and his wife on FB. Well I woke up to a text from my nephew with a pic of a post FIL sent to his friend saying he was going to “kick his ass”.
    Funny part about all this is while FIL is fighting on FB he is getting notices from everyone in our family unfriending him. Ha. He and his crazy wife shut down their FB pages.

    Enough of crazy and on too……..DRAGONS!!!!!!!

  13. LaineyLainey says:

    Loved the Larry king thread last night,…I didn’t get to read it til it was all over. Super funny, though.

    My 28 y.o. Niece is in town, she is a wonderful person, the eldest in her family and a giver!! I feel sometimes that she does too much for others,…and so I spent yesterday spoiling her a little bit. Her mom was only 18 when she had her so her mom can be more of a friend and sort relies on her too much. My opinion. My brother her dad (they are divorced by the way) tries to put her in the middle of their conflicts. Trying to convince her that she deserves to focus on herself and her own needs, her future, etc. I took her to get her nails done, took her to Kohl’s and bought her 5 tops, went out to eat (this is for Ttart, we went to Kerby Lane and had their gingerbread lattes..that was just the beginning. Haha!). and then we went to the movies. We watched “God is not dead” it was good. She lives about 3 hours away from me. We have not been close in the past, but she reached out to me and of course I welcomed her with open arms. So now I’m catching up here.

    I hope all is well out in lynnfam land. We got rain today,…yay!!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I do not have HBO but there is a promotion going on now…I have my dvr set!!!!,!!!!

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        I don’t watch or get HBO, don’t think I can get that promo, just had 3 months FREE Showtime, Starz and Encore. Now getting free Genie equipment this week. DirecTV is probably not going to give me anymore freebies for a while!

        • Powell says:

          TexasTart I checked my acct and I’m eligible for the Genie upgrade. 🙂 I don’t know when I’ll do it. Are they installing it or just sending it for you to install? The later would be good for me.

          • Jan (TexasTart) says:

            Good! They are installing….wasn’t given an option to self-install. I’ll let you know next weekend how it goes.

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          Hi TT! I would try calling them just in case! You never know. Just tell them you want HBO and wanted to see what the hype was with GOT to get started it–maybe they’ll hook you up!

  14. VV™ says:

    To those who still think the joint birthday party for Mauricio and Ken was fake. I say to you do your research. There are plenty of open albums on FB with pics of the attendees. Most weren’t on camera. Yes, Bravo filmed part of the evening but the party went on all night long after they filmed.

    • VV™ says:

      Read Amy Rose comment on this IG pic.

      mrsfatburger’s photo

      • Powell says:

        Well Stacci doesn’t know how to do the splits w/o showing her undies. I’m still impressed that Kyle can do the splits but I sure am glad we didn’t see it on the show.

      • PJ says:

        Wait a minute Scheana is only a waitress not a friend so is she there serving food? I’m so confused.

    • VV™ says:

      Pandora didn’t want to give it away. This is at that same party.

      pandoravt’s photo

      • PJ says:

        Where is Scheana’s food tray she isn’t a friend only a waitress, Lisa said so.

        • VV™ says:

          Scheana is Pandora’s friend. This pic is from Pandy’s IG account. I don’t get your point. Oh, that’s right. You hate Lisa so never mind.

          • PJ says:

            Yes pointing out Lisa’s inconsistencies makes me a hater, I get it. I would never say my daughters friends were not family friends, of course they are.

            • VV™ says:

              Lisa and Scheana are not friends. She’s Lisa’s employee. That is quite clear to anybody that wants to see. Do you see them lunching together or shopping together outside of the show? Nope.

              You don’t point out to Lisa’s inconsistencies. You basically look for tits in an ant and refuse to see anything other than your point of view.

              • PJ says:

                Lol. Funny. I have a point of view and am a logical person. I do not allow myself to be led by others who can’t see when someone is not telling the truth. True Schenna is a waitress but Lisa does indeed do things outside of work with her including shopping as was mentioned on the reunion. Schenna is Lisa’s daughter’s friend which makes her more that simply a waitress. I’m sorry YOU can only see your own viewpoint and feel the need to insult those who do not agree with you.

                • VV™ says:

                  I should’ve ignored your comment. You insult plenty but do it backhanded. Must be because you are so logical. Not sure.
                  I should continue to ignore your comments. You on the other hand comment on mine very often. Not very logical if you ask me.
                  I’ve said this before and plenty. If you don’t like my comments skip away…skip away. Seems very logical to me.

                  • PJ says:

                    I’m sorry that you are so personally offended by comments left on a blog, especially as nothing is personally directed at you either in an insulting way or a non insulting way. Perhaps you think that it’s ok to pretend to ignore a comment and then leave an insulting one down thread which is directly related, just because it isn’t made directly to the comment you are referring to, that’s not underhanded at all. Then of course you tell people to skip your comments if they disagree with you, so you can be as insulting as you want but no one dare respond to you. Obviously you feel you are superior to me that comes through loud and clear, so what is the point of further engaging with you. Drink a nice glass of pink kool aid and relax– now see that is insulting…

                    • MelTheHound says:

                      May I suggest this has gone on long enough?

                      I agree that’s the reason I said it’s no sense further engaging. But to be fair I did not start with the insults so why tell just me?

                    • MelTheHound says:

                      Actually, I’m asking everybody involved. Not picking one or the other, you all know I think all these howives are screwed in the head. I replied to your post, PJ, as I am now, just to keep it in the same thread.

                    • PJ says:

                      Thank you. You are absolutely right of course.

      Hi VV! Isn’t this after Lisa brought up the tabloids in Kyle’s kitchen? You’d think Kyle had moved on. To me, this was a definite setup that Kyle couldn’t pass up!

      • VV™ says:

        The Chamber of Commerce event at Kyle’s house took place May 8.
        The joint Birthday party was July 20 or 21.
        Episodes wise:
        Chamber of Commerce party was Episode #1
        Joint B-day party Episode #14

        In my opinion, once Kyle figured she could play her favorite role “victim” (again) with the cheating rumors, she ran with that story for this season and acted the part. Hence, Crying Heads and Waterworks USA were born.

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          Thanks for the timeline. I’m sorry, but if she felt betrayed by Lisa, it sure looked like she moved on. The viewers are not stupid and Kyle is just so transparent. If you’re going to be mad at Lisa, then you have to be mad at Yo and Brandi for their part in this fiasco….
          Seeing that Kyle hasn’t openly supported Brandi on CA through donations, maybe Lisa and Kyle will go against a Brandi this year?

          • Powell says:

            I hope they don’t go against Brandi next season. I just hope they ignore her. No need to retaliate. Ignoring her will be enough.

  15. Amanda is not an image consultant, she is a stylist. If you read my latest posts, you’ll see. (I did a part 3 series on #RHNY mean girl edition, I don’t know if you can post links, but if you click my name you will see. I did the post(s) on my phone – yikes.) BravoTv and Shed Media made it seem that way.

    Anyhow, is Veena checking in at all?
    Did Boston get married?
    I stop in everyonce in a while, twitta is exploding with craziness. Jill Zarin. OMG. What a nut.

    • Powell says:

      Well MissAmia “pancakes” the stylist needs a stylist. That’s even worse than an image consultant because of the way she styles herself. It’s bad.

    What a nut, is too kind, don’t ya’ think?! 😉 I’ll check out your post. Boston is still engaged, IIRC she wanted to finish college before marriage. She was posting early this morning. Veena checked in today – via her travel blog.

  17. Powell says:

    Woo. I’m so glad we’re not the only ones that noticed pancakes. SJP I’m calling Amanda “pancakes”. Add that to your list of the HWs names even though she’s not a HW. 🙂

  18. Good afternoon everyone! Beautiful day today. Cool in the 70’s. Just got back from seeing The Grand Budapest Hotel. Loved it.! Wes Anderson is so great.

      Isn’t she the one who complained that people were stalking her because someone took a photo of her apartment building?

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        It wasn’t even her apartment building. Ironically, some magazine had already listed her address, when she was pretending to shop for $$$$$ condo’s.

  21. Powell says:

    I’m watching NY. I didn’t pay attention before cuz pancakes had pancakes in her 1920s style dress. I think she thinks it’s attractive.

    • California35 says:

      When i saw her with that top (or dress) sitting there talking, i wondered if she really thinks it was a good look. I mean seriously!!?? I am glad i am not the only one who thinks, it is NOT a good look.
