Dancing with the Stars S18E4 by BB

Scores from last week:

39 points:  Merrill and Maks

36 points:  James and Peta; Danica and Val; Amy and Derek; Charlie and Sharna

35 points:  Cody and Whitney

32 points:  Candace and Mark

31 points:  NeNe and Tony

30 points:  Drew and Cheryl

This week the stars have switched partners for one night only, and last week’s scores will be combined with this week’s.  Julianne Hough is the guest judge.  So who are the pairs?  Candace and Tony (NeNe); James and Cheryl (Drew); Charlie and Peta (James); Drew and Whitney (Cody); Danica and Maks (Merrill); Amy and Mark (Candace); Cody and Sharna (Whitney); NeNe and Derek (Amy); Merrill and Val (Danica).

Candace and Tony danced the Quick Step.  Their footwork looked pretty good to me.  The judges criticized their hold and Candace’s upper body positions.  Score:  28 (ouch!)  Total Score:  60 (out of a possible 80).

James and Cheryl danced the Tango.  James is a Hottie!  OK, I got that out of the way. Loved the dance, it was sizzlin’, even if I have no idea how it was technically.  Julianne says he the hot guy, but he’s got the talent to go with it.  Score:  35 Total Score:  74

Drew and Whitney danced the Cha Cha.  I love Drew Carey.  He has such a good attitude even when Whitney says he is a slower learner than Cody (who is my personal least favorite star this season).  The judges liked his performance this week much better.  Score:  33 Total score:  63

Danica and Maks danced the Jive.  Cute routine.  The judges wanted more Jive and less cuteness.  Julianne says she thinks Maks may have phoned it in, but Maks says he always dances like it’s his last and he did his best.  Val, Danica’s regular partner (and Maks’ brother) said Danica never looked better.  Score:  32 Total Score:  68

Charlie and Peta danced the Rhumba.  Sultry and sensual.  Len said is wasn’t  a Rhumba and more contemporary.  Julianne thought it was a Rhumba and beautiful, but Charlie is on his heels too much (must be a skating thing).  Carrianne agrees with Len that it was not a Rhumba.  Score:  33 Total score:  69

Amy and Mark danced the Salsa.  Mark got some pointers from Derek about how Amy’s body moves and learns he has to be more of a sturdy partner for her than he normally is.  The judges loved that she danced more on her own with Mark than she has with Derek.  Score:  34 Total score:  70

Cody and Sharna danced the Fox Trot.  He danced like he’s in a boy band.  Maybe he’s just too young (17) to be able to dance more maturely.  The judges told Cody he needs to get the details and technique of the dances down.  Not his style, but try a different style.  Score:  31 Total score:  66

NeNe and Derek danced Jazz.  NeNe was lucky to get Derek.  He’s a great choreographer and usually brings out the best in his partners.  He definitely brought out NeNe’s over the top personality.  This dance was totally NeNe.  Len said it was her best dance so far.  Score:  32 Total score:  63

Merrell and Val danced the Argentine Tango.  She’s very, very, very, really good.  Excellent.  Len said it was the dance of the night and Julianne said she wished she could dance like Merrill.  Carrianne told them they are in a class of their own and they are untouchable.  Score:  39 (Len gave them a 9) Total score:  78

This week’s/last week’s combined scores:

Merrill: 78

James:  74

Amy:  70

Charlie:  69

Danica:  68

Cody:  66

NeNe:  63

Drew:  63

Candace:  60

Next week is Disney night (can’t wait, not really).

    Good morning everyone. It’s hump day eve. I know. Yes I’m rushing it. 🙂 What can I say. I hope you all have a great day.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi Powellypooh! Rush all you want! I hope you are migraine free today! I stayed up late watching L word on Netflix. Can barely keep eyes open today! Wish me luck! #nodiscipline #badLainey

      • Powell says:

        Haha. Yes fellow “let’s get to the weekend”. 🙂 I’m feeling good today. I hope it stays that way. I’m working at home so it’s more restful. Fingers crossed. Thks for asking. Uh oh your dragging huh? I know. Sometimes you can’t help yourself. You’ve got to see it now. I hope you hang in there and have a great day.

    • It is Tuesday so more Leg and the gang tonight – can’t wait! I didn’t even watch the BH more footage show last night because I am done and have moved on!

      • Powell says:

        SJP I am looking forward to NY too. Those ladies are crazy but crazy funny. Please oh please let #bookgate end. 🙂 I didn’t watch BH either. I was watching The Following. I’ve missed too many epis so I had to watch. I’ll catch the rerun of BH.

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

      SMAUG!

  2. Powell says:

    T-Rex I hope you’re feeling a bit better today. 2Stupid God bless your mom. I hope she’s finding some comfort for however much time she has. BIG hugs to both of you ladies.

  3. VV™ says:

    I’m glad Bravo showed what Mauricio told Lisa in the kitchen of his house after Lisa made the joke. I’m glad we got to see his side. After all it was about him…..

    Oh, no that’s right. Bravo once again did not show. They cut it out. I wonder why. I think it was because it didn’t fit the storyline…. Are we to believe Mauricio who voices his unwanted advice and screams and yells when upset didn’t say anything to Lisa?

    • Powell says:

      I didn’t like that Lisa said that at all w/Portia there. I get she was joking but it wasn’t in good taste. Sometimes you have to know when and where you can joke.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Oh but when you are the Queen you can joke about anything…that was the whole point of this season. When Lisa says something it’s a joke and everyone needs to get over it-but if anyone dare say a thing about the Queen-well as we can see she will just go on a victim tour and tweet about hourly…
        And Mauricio and that terrible temper of his-screaming at women and calling them stupid..oh wait-that was Ken!!!

        • ladebra says:

          Didn’t Ken say you are acting stupid? I’m asking, not stating a fact, so don’t call me stupid.

        • VV™ says:

          Jill, Lisa already apologized for that. It was settled.

          I’m not asking about Ken screaming. I’m asking about Mauricio’s reaction to Lisa’s comment. He was in the kitchen with Kyle and Lisa. Lisa said it in front of him…… <<> Where was his outrage? I just want to see and hear what he said since this was so offensive to him.
          Bravo cut it out for a reason….

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Mohave no idea what you are talking about-who said it was cut?

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Mohave???? I HAVE!!!

            • VV™ says:

              I didn’t hear him or see him say anything after Lisa made the comment. Bravo has multiple cameras to capture reactions. The fact we didn’t hear him tell Lisa something tells me that it didn’t fit the storyline. Otherwise, we would see him telling Lisa off…

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                So him realizing that his daughter was in the room and thinking it’s not a good idea to raise his voice right then is out of the question?

          • Powell says:

            Well I understand Mo and Kyle not being “outraged” in front of Portia. She doesn’t deserve that. Kyle gave Lisa a look and I think said in a keeping her cool tone, “don’t say tthat’ or something. In that moment I think they made the right decision. But when Portia left Kyle should have laid Lisa out. IMO that would have totally put an end to it but Kyle did it passively in order to be the victim “of the tabloid” the entire season. This season so many things/issues could have been squashed immediately but Yo, Brandi and Kyle had a master plan. Yes Lisa told some lies/twisted some facts, was mad at ABC& D for doing the EXACT same thing that Ken did but Lisa is still on top. So Yo, Brandi and Kyle really just waisted their time cuz we already knew Lisa lies/twists things. Yo, Brandi and Kyle didn’t point out anything we didn’t already know. I call what they did an EPIC fail and Brandi may just lose her job for it. But hey. What do I know. 🙂

      • VV™ says:

        He said it in front if Mauricio. Where is his outrage? How did he react when it happened. Bravo cut it out.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          What are talking about VV? Mauricio had some sort of temper tantrum and Bravo cut it? Where did you hear about this?

          • VV™ says:

            No. I want to know what Mauricio’s reaction was to Lisa’s joke. If he was very offended by it, what did he say to Lisa right then and there. I just want to know how he reacted to Lisa’s comments that is all.
            Bravo cut it out for a reason…

            • LaineyLainey says:

              But Veev’s he did have his kid with him,…perhaps that is why he chose not to react/respond to the “joke” or what turned out to be an inappropriate comment. It might have upset his little girl to see him get upset at Lisa right then and there.

              • VV™ says:

                If that is the case ( for the sake of Porsha) once camera were not filming then Mauricio coul’ve told Lisa he didn’t appreciate the comment. It seems like both Ken and Lisa were clueless that the comment upset the Umanskys. Now, that is on Kyle and Mauricio then for not talking to Lisa and made her aware if how they felt……unless…..
                #theyneededastoryline

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  It’s Kyle and Mauricio’s fault that they didn’t let Lisa have it right then and there-if that’s how it goes it still doesn’t excuse Lisa from bringing up the rumor and saying it front of Kyle’s kid-even if I believe Kyle is stupid for having her kid on the show I still see how Lisa did wrong-not because I hate her-but because it was wrong. The Queen was being shady and so what? She didn’t invent shade…but she has perfected it.

                • Powell says:

                  I don’t see how Lisa was clueless cuz Kyle had a look on her face that said to me she didn’t appreciate that comment and especially in front of her child. Like I said upthread Kyle should have straightened Lisa out right after Mo & Portia left. That’s how I am. Confront it right away. But Kyle made that her season storyline. “Wow is me. The tabloids are lying about Mauricio, trying to tear us apart”. She’s from that town. She knows how the tabloid game is played. Her Hilton family has been in the tabloids for yrs. Kim has been in the tabloids for yrs. Kyle’s no novice.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    She is not a novice. I believe she knew this was her angle for the season. At least to start the season and then let’s see what shape it takes. jmho. She’s a super smart lady. She’s no Bobby Fischer. But she DID come up with that quote, so she has her own brand of clever. I for one, feel that she is just as a big a part of RHoBH as Lisa.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Bravo cut it out for a reason? I still have no idea what you are talking about? You saying like you know Bravo has footage of Mauricio having a fit but I don’t know where that is coming from? Why do you think he went off on Lisa? ..maybe he didn’t want to make a scene in front of his daughter? I don’t get this?

              • VV™ says:

                If you don’t get it, then don’t worry be happy.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Oh I get it-you are looking for something to pin on Mauricio-I get it.

                  • VV™ says:

                    No, I think is a valid question. Like I commented to Lainey above.
                    “If that is the case ( for the sake of Porsha) once camera were not filming then Mauricio coul’ve told Lisa he didn’t appreciate the comment. It seems like both Ken and Lisa were clueless that the comment upset the Umanskys. Now, that is on Kyle and Mauricio then for not talking to Lisa and made her aware if how they felt……unless…..
                    #theyneededastoryline”

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      It’s valid to you because you want Mauricio to look bad-I get it.

                    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

                      I get what you’re saying, VV. since it was the main storyline and it was secrets revealed, they should show footage of what the viewers want to see: Mo’s reaction, Kyle and Mao talking after Lisa leaves, Yo and Joyce brunch and if Lisa did or didn’t ask Brandi to put the magazines in the suitcase. For example, I always knew a Gretchen was a snake and I was glad that they showed footage of Lynn confronting Gretchen about a trunk show. This entire season could’ve been like mini-series into 5 episodes. Stop wasting our time, Bravo!

        • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

          To me – there are a couple of issues. 1) That type of “joke” should never be done in front of a child out of respect – no matter what age. Did Portia understand it? Probably not – but kids do tend to pick up on stuff and are little parrots. Lisa should have immediately apologized, IPPHO. 2) I’m all for great jokes and stuff… but I think if I was in the early stages of infidelity rumors about my husband splashed all over the tabloids I would be hurting about it. The last thing I would need is for my friend to make a joke about it on national TV in my own kitchen – when I’m hurting about it. I dunno, I think the wound from the allegations was still fresh – and it was “too soon” to go there. Once Lisa figured out that her flippant joke hurt Kyle or Mauricio’s feelings – she should have apologized. It may have been a joke to Lisa – but not to them. No one wants to actually hurt our friend’s feelings just for a laugh, no?

          • Powell says:

            Yep, Yep, Yep. And Lisa’s joking but at home w/Ken saying “I don’t know if it’s true or not true. I don’t know what you get up to.”. Of course I don’t know the timeline of the two convos but you all get what I’m saying.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Why was Portia even in that grown-up scene on a grown-up show? If you don’t film the little girl, there’s no chance of her being around inappropriate things being said. It’s Kyle and Mo’s choice to have little Portia on camera. Grown-up jokes happen and when said in front of babies, they become inappropriate jokes. How about a tiny, a pinch, a smidge of responsibility placed on Kyle and Mauricio for choosing to have their little daughter in that scene. No? ok.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Kyle is totally at fault for having her kids on the show-I don’t think any of the kids should be around these women and they way the behave during filming. I think every city should be smart and leave their kids off camera-they don’t belong on the show-it’s not like the HW is a wholesome family show!!

          • HuskerHuny says:

            Kyle is positioning Portia to be a next young star much like she and her sister Kim were at the same age. And we all know what happens to the bigger percentage of child stars. Poor Portia.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Yeah, right? We wouldn’t even be talking about this, had Kyle kept her baby off the show that day. I can’t completely clink coffee mugs with you, I want to, but I’m more in the gray area about kids…because I do love to see the kids…but there are scenes that are more tailored for them…a kids’ bday party, holiday meals, a fun outing like skating, pumpkin patch etc…but if they’re gonna be on and something bad is said in front of them, then you just have to say “oh well,…our choice, our bad this time…”

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              If Portia wasn’t there then the question still needs to be ask-why did Lisa bring the rumors to the show? There was a reason-and it wasn’t to squash them-there would be nothing to squash if she didn’t bring it up-she wanted them on this season…my question remains…WHY???

              • LaineyLainey says:

                My answer remains – storyline. It’s all set up, they are told what to talk about, etc. Not saying Lisa is an innocent, just saying no one is innocent here (except Portia). Every scene has a purpose. Ok, at this lunch you will talk about pipi’s (or in english pee-pee’s), at this tea, you can get together and tell Lisa how you really feel, or when you see that Lisa has been left out of Taylor’s event, call her so that the viewers will know Lisa was excluded…nevermind that there’s a camera crew at the event and at Lisa’s and everyone is mic’d up. It was no accident. Almost everything things we see, I’m willing to bet, is part of the shenanigans of the producers to make compelling T.V.

                If you ask again, my answer will be the same. It’ was part of the storyline for this season. Like it or not. Boring or not boring,…it was Kyle’s way of being seen sympathy worthy to the viewer. Or just to have a reason to be in any scene. I don’t agree with the producers, I think Kyle could have been a lot more interesting (to me) – she has a lot going on in her life with her business, charities, her social connections, her role as mother and wife. But someone somewhere decided to focus on this crap and I believe she was on board. She and Mo both. I even think Lisa was onboard with the whole Let’s get Lisa storyline. Carlton was onboard with let’s film you being offended by Kyle not understanding your religion., etc.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  This comment^^^^^ Jill, is where I said that the “let’s get Lisa” storyline was most likely pre-planned.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    I knew you included Lisa in the comment Lainey-my comment was more about how they reacted after-not that you didn’t say Lisa’s storyline was planned out as well-sorry for the misunderstanding!!

                • Powell says:

                  I don’t like these “storyline” thingies. There’s not supposed to be “storylines”. That’s not the original premise of HWs. Storylines are for scripted tv.

            • PJ says:

              I agree about the children they are so adorable and I like seeing them but I can understand why people would feel they shouldn’t be on a show like this. But that being said could Kyle have known Lisa would bring up such an inappropriate topic in front of a little girl?

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Yes, I think that was the purpose of the scene. Just my opinion.

                • PJ says:

                  I think Kyle ran with this after the fact, but I’m not convinced she voluntarily agreed to have this brought up on camera. I think Lisa kind of blindsided them bringing that up and pretending it was a joke.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    I’m very cynical now,…I believe she did know and was onboard with it from the start. Perhaps it was presented to her as a way of making her more sympathetic and relatable. I don’t know….but I believe she knew and was ok with it. The overall goal is to stay on the show and to to continue collecting that paycheck and to give them a vehicle/platform to keep them in the limelight to promote their businesses and or to promote their kids, …I don’t really blame any of them. But I just can’t believe that any of them are innocent or “surprised” by anything. Not really. sometimes they are surprised by viewer reaction (we are the fly in the ointment) but I don’t think they are surprised by too much.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      If this is the case and everything is laid out and planned-Lisa’s victim tour is all fake. She can’t be hurt by the so called bullying and gang up if she knew it was coming-same as Kyle can’t act offended by the rumors being on the show. Lisa is still crying about it all on twitter so she is either a very loyal Bravo employee or she thinks viewers are stupid and believe we are actually watching “reality TV”!

                    • PJ says:

                      Lainey and Jill: If this is a storyline set up then everything on this show is a storyline set up. That means there is no real reason for any of them to be offended about anything that happens on this show and that includes Lisa, Joyce, Kim, Kyle, Ken, Mauricio, Yolanda, Brandi, and most of all the viewers. Lisa still goes on and on about this on Twitter, Joyce made a big deal about things Brandi said in the media getting herself a lot of attention. Viewers are taking sides vilifying some and recommending others for sainthood. If this is a storyline set up then nothing about this show is real and we have all been played.

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      Yes, I did say in a previous comment that the “Let’s get Lisa” storyline was also loosely planned out as most of this stuff is…and she was onboard with it. So you get no argument from me since I started off with the premise that Lisa also knew. I don’t think Kyle is fake for not liking the direction her storyline took as the season progressed, and I also don’t think it’s fake that Lisa didn’t like the direction her storyline took. After all they are all human and they have feelings like the rest of us. They are allowed to have and show feelings. We are allowed to believe or not believe them. But if what I’m alleging is true it doesn’t make everything else fake. Kyle could very well have genuine feelings of hurt and betrayal. Just as Lisa may very well have genuine feelings of hurt and betrayal when it’s all said and done. But I still think they have a general idea of where the storylines might go and what is expected of them. In fact, the hw’s themselves most likely pitch ideas to the producers. Keep me on so that I can work on my marriage, my rehab, my relationship with my sister in law, so I can have a wedding, have a baby….it doesn’t automatically mean all the feelings that follow are fake. IMO. It just means, they are not truly surprised. Even the limo thing…I hate to say was probably somewhat planned. I really, really, believe that.

                    • Powell says:

                      Yes Miss Lainey. You are SO cynical. 😉

                  • Powell says:

                    Yep, Yep, Yep. I’m so agreeable today. LOL. 🙂 Yes I totally think once “the tabloid” came out and it was topic of convo a few times Kyle thought “this is my storyline this season. Viewers should be on my side once they see how bad I feel.”.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          Totally agree Lainey. Portia is a five year old child. Did she actually hear the joke and if so, did she understand it? And if she understood it, she’s been exposed to waaaay too much in her young life to even get the gist of the statement and that’s not on Lisa. SHE’S FIVE YEARS OLD PEOPLE! Quit using her as an excuse mommy and daddy. If Portia knows what ‘cheating’ is, it’s not Lisa’s fault.

          Lisa meant it as a joke, good or bad, depending on how you view Lisa. To me she was trying to defuse the situation with her humor, like it or not. Kyle and Mo’s reaction was completely over the top and showed me that there might be a bit of truth there maybe? I believe they complained too much the entire season. If they would have laughed those rumors off, they come out looking a whole lot better.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I still hope it aint true. Am i being naive. (sp)

          • MelTheHound says:

            I have always taken that ‘joke’ to be that Morris’ younger woman he had a date with, Was Portia. The only reason all that cheating business became such a big deal on the show was that KYLE gave it legs.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Yeah, I get the joke. It was cute. Inappropriate, because it was said in front of the little girl. but I found it cute. Is that a pass? hahahaha! Does that mean I think Lisa if perfecrt? hahahaha! whatevs. It was both funny, because I have a sense of humor and it’s not hubs who is allegedly cheating (knock wood), and inappropriate (because she said it in front of a small child).

              • MelTheHound says:

                I think people give these kids too much ability of understanding.. I think all she was worried about at that particular time was he PB &J or whatever she was having for lunch. Further, this was season 4, Kyle and Morris both know exactly what happens with even the most innocent footage filmed. If they don’t want the kid hearing anything, they should keep her away from the cameras. If the kid is somehow scarred by whatever she may hear during filming, I blame no one else but her parents.

            • Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

              Agree.

          • PJ says:

            I think children understand a lot more that adults think they do.

            • HuskerHuny says:

              If Portia understood the ‘joke’, how in the world does a 5 year old know what cheating is? Where does a 5 year old learn that? At home? If that is the case, again, Portia has been exposed to far too much in her young life.

              • PJ says:

                I don’t know Portia so I have no idea. But I do think she is old enough to understand a lot more than people think. I think a so called “joke” like that in front a a child is inappropriate no matter what we may think the child did or did not understand. I also don’t believe the word cheating was used at the time just younger woman so imagine Portia repeating that and asking questions about it. If that happened in front of my little girl I would be pissed and I think a lot of people would also be if it happened to them. Does this become acceptable because it was Lisa who said it because my guess is that if it had been Brandi this would be a different discussion?

                • HuskerHuny says:

                  I believe what Lisa said was something along the lines of “so this is the younger girl/lady that Mauricio is having/was having lunch with.” Not stated verbatim for sure, but what’s so wrong with that said in front of Portia? Portia is a young girl and her daddy was taking her to lunch.

                  • PJ says:

                    I don’t know exactly word for word what Lisa said and I have no intention of going back and watching again, but the intent was inappropriate and therefore should not have been said in front of a child. I remember thinking how inappropriate it was at the time and being shocked at how low Lisa was willing to go and thinking how upset Kyle and Mauricio looked, those were my impressions at the time. Again I contend that if Brandi had been the one to say this in front of Portia this would be another discussion.

            • mm in oc says:

              Ive posted about this 2-3 times. Look it up. A five year old doesnt understand the context of adult jokes, or puns. Its another year or two before they would even being to understand. #titsonant

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Kids don’t understand a lot of things grown up talk about but most grown ups don’t throw around jokes that are for other grown ups in front of kids-it’s not just about Portia understanding or not-it’s more about Lisa. She would like those kind of things talked about in front of Pandora when she was 5? I’m going to think-probably not. Kyle’s kid shouldn’t be on the show-bottom line-but that doesn’t excuse anyone from being innaprpriate in front of her. It’s not looking for tits on a ant when you don’t have to dig-it was on TV for all to see.

                • PJ says:

                  This is exactly the point, it says a lot about Lisa that she would do this, and if it was something said about her and/or Ken we would still be hearing about it on twitter. I personally believe that what Brandi said about Ken and Lisa was on the same level as what Lisa has said about Kyle and Mauricio. But since Lisa said things it should be over and forgotten. As for Mauricio’s reaction and what he did or did not say to Lisa to me it’s really a moot point because Kyle and Mauricio were both visibly upset by what Lisa said at the time she said it and Lisa would have to be blind not to have noticed their reactions.

          • Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

            Yup.

          • plainviewsue says:

            One of the reasons I will always dislike Kyle is when she was on WWHL once & Andy said to her that Portia is the Milania of Beverly Hills. They switched to a scene of Portia, but before they did, you can see and hear Kyle say to Andy in a nasty voice “Don’t say that.” That made me furious.

            Can you imagine if Teresa was watching that episode? Kyle is and always will be about Kyle.

            I agree that Kyle knew this would be her storyline and ran with it. She wanted Lisa to look like the big bad wolf. I loved at the reunion when Lisa said to Kyle that she talked about it more than anyone. Cos she did.

            • VV™ says:

              How can Kyle say that on camera? Using Kyle’s supporters logic then Milania should be offended that Kyle thought it was offensive that she was compared to her.

          • shamrockblonde says:

            agree completely – she is five years old – she probably didn’t even hear all of the comment let alone understand it – and like it or not, to Lisa, saying something like that, to her, was a way of saying that the rumors were built around nothing, instigated by people who were trying to either make a name for themselves or getting their five minutes of fame – to Lisa, the rumors had no weight unless they were given weight – by Kyle and Mo – and like it or not, it was brought up more by Kyle than anyone else -now I don’t like Mo – but I sincerely hope that all of the nonsense is just that – nonsense – I don’t think Lisa is perfect, but I do believe her to be a loyal friend and generous to a fault –

            • kit9 says:

              A loyal generous friend doesn’t shine a big huge national tv spotlight on nasty tabloid rumors involving your marriage. And, Lisa KNOWS Kyle. She knew damn well that is the LAST thing Kyle would want. But, Lisa did it anyway and it was a nasty and vicious thing to so. Lisa didn’t give a rat’s about knocking down the tabloids as some favor to Kyle. She never once called Kyle about the them and they had been out for a while. So, that explanation was pure BS. The way you don’t give months old tabloid rumors weight? DON’T bring them up. But, of course, Lisa’s intention was the opposite-to shine a light on them. t.

        • VV™ says:

          I hear ya’ Lainey. I just want to know what Mauricio’s reaction was what did he say to Lisa.

    Rebecca ‘re:the migraines. I don’t have weird migraines. They just start for no rhyme or reason. My doc asks me what’s the trigger. There is none. It just comes out of no where. I need to go back to taking naps on the weekend. That seems to help.

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

      Hey, whatever helps… I get a weird migraine where it feels like someone slapped me hard on the left side of the face. Cuz I need more pain. I had a killer this weekend. It didn’t stop until I got a triple shot espresso. That finally got all 12 of those pills I took to kick in.

      Thank you so much Miss Powell!!! I’m currently still on grandmother watch. Around 8 a.m. my future son-in-law posted that my daughter rested well overnight and is currently at 5 and is doing well. As soon as I get the call, I will let everyone here now. I’m strangely very calm.

      • Well your daughter is certainly taking her time – doesn’t she know you are ready to be a grandma? (good luck, I am sure you will be a great grandma)

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Can this day get any better? My son just messaged me and told me he has 3 As and 1 B on his mid-terms. This is the kid I thought would never get through grade school. How am I supposed to concentrate this morning?!?

  8. Shiny says:

    No answers to anything on the RHBH clips off the editing floor, but it was the first episode all season that was somewhat fun to watch. I’d rather see Ken, the dogs sitting in chairs, and the new wedding ring than Carlton’s party or any of the dinners with fighting (oh yea, that was every meal this season). Brandi’s new furniture was fun to see (even though it’s not in that house long), and I want new couch pillows now. Etc. Maybe Bravo can make a Lisa (or whomever) show without fighting and see that ratings are better.

    • I watched FIVE long minutes of my life… and changed channels! I just couldn’t stomach anyone of them anymore! I am DONE!

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      I totally agree, Shiny… There were no big revelations – but you didn’t have to watch it with your hands over your eyes. Also, I didn’t have to yell at the TV, which is always a good thing.

      • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

        I’m currently kind of watching a Top Chef – Las Vegas marathon on Esquire channel even as we speak. I’m not sure what happened with Padma – It seems like she recently too much of her own Kool-aid.

        • mm in oc says:

          I think both padma and Tom’s time has passed. Pwdms is just boring snd doesnt have much personality. She just had more personality than billy joels exwife. I think bethanney would be a good judge as shes a chef and would provide some snark.

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

            I agree with you on this one. Bethenny would make a good host and judge for Top Chef.

        I’m watching less and less Bravo than I ever have since I found it about 10 years ago. I usually give a new show an episode (or less) to catch my eye. Southern Charm being the most current one and I really don’t like it. I only watch the Housewives and Top Chef consistently. I do like Fashion Queens on Sunday nights though. Excuse me, please add Million Dollar Listing NY and if I’m really bored, add LA as well.

      • Powell says:

        Wig is a trip. I’m glad it’s back. I’m looking forward to seeing her new babies.

  12. PJ says:

    Lainey the thread is too thin to respond directly to you. I still say that if a story line is planned out either loosely or not then it isn’t real. If this is the case then nothing about this show is real. How can you say on the one hand that the story line is planned in advance and they already know where it’s going but on the other hand they have the right to get upset about a planned out story line, I honestly don’t get that. Not to mention that are four actresses in this cast who in my opinion are acting their hearts out for the camera, most of them anyway.

    • mm in oc says:

      I think they get a general idea of how the show will go. Much of it through the interview process. Many of them overact and we’ve all discussed this (thinking carlton). We always say thst this isnt how real people behave. And they dont.

      However I do think people like Brandi take it overboard (adrienne and Lisa). I dont think lisa was prepared to have what she considered real friends atabbing her in the back. She likely thought it would be more kyle kim and the new girls.

      There are no reality shows. These are unscripted shows and I guess only 20% of what we see is honest.

      • PJ says:

        You are probably correct that most of what we see on reality TV isn’t real or honest. I do think though that if Brandi over reacted or took it over board that Lisa was behind the scenes egging her on and loving that Brandi was getting the flack for it especially with Adrienne. I believe that Lisa is a major player in the field of strategizing as well as a master of deflection and the passive aggressive joke that isn’t really a joke. Just my opinion I know that many people don’t feel this way about Lisa.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          But ultimately they are all grown ups (except Portia) and should take responsibility for what they choose to do with our without being egged on. That’s how it works in my life, anyway.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            with or without being egged on* my opinion

            • PJ says:

              Yes I agree but the one who I never see taking any responsibility is the Queen herself. It’s always the confused look on her face when confronted, the oh but dahling we moved past that, oh dahling I was merely joking. I guess it is good to be Queen.

              • Powell says:

                PJ I don’t like “I thought we’ve moved past that.” And the look of “oh God. That again.”. Well clearly that person hasn’t so start w/”I’m sorry. We talked and I thought we worked thru that but since you bring it up its obvious we haven’t. Let’s discuss it.”. That’s not a hard thing to say.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  It probably is good to be her.

                • PJ says:

                  I agree and the other person needs to talk about it because they have never talked about it and have only moved on in Lisa’s mind. However if it’s something done to Lisa she never moves past it.

              • mrs peabody says:

                that’s why she’s the queen

              • kit9 says:

                Lisa didn’t take an ounce of responsibility for that first episode even when Kyle talked to her about it on the show. She finally said sorry after having her arm twisted at the reunion and immediately started rambling about her BS explanation for doing it. If you are actually sorry, you just say sorry, period, not sorry BUT…followed by excuses.

                • PJ says:

                  Not only does she take no responsibility but her fans spend lots of time making excuses for her.👑👑👑👑

          • Powell says:

            Yep, Yep, Yep. 😀

        • Powell says:

          Yes Lisa did sit back and enjoy the view of Brandi’s attacks last season. A&Ps family dynamic, I’m not so sure Lisa enjoyed the beginnings of that but the “lawsuit”, the Brandi effing off Paul, calling Adrienne a liar. Yes Lisa enjoyed that. She most definitely could have set Brandi straight on the family issue cuz if Brandi doesn’t want anyone talking about issues that can affect her kids, then A&P should have been afforded that also. I think if Lisa had set Brandi straight on that issue this would have been a different season cuz Brandi would have seen Lisa’s not her sidekick for that type of crazy and Brandi wouldn’t have gone after Joyce nor Lisa.

          • PJ says:

            I think Lisa wanted to go after Adrienne probably for the meeting where they were supposed to discuss how to take Lisa down so she used Brandi for that and sat back enjoying what was going on. Brandi has said Adrienne went after her and her family I don’t know what that was about but I think Lisa probably played on those feelings and supplied the ammo to go after Adrienne. I really hoped Brandi would have learned not to do that this season after the whole A&P fiasco.

            • Powell says:

              Yes Lisa wanted to go after Lisa for the meeting and crazy Bernie. Any of them have info and share it but it’s the choice of what the person does w/the info.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        the only absolutely true reality show was the very first Real World – completely unscripted and not planned at all – but every one after that – all “reality” shows are loosely scripted – vague direction, story lines are discussed for all of them –

        • I loved that, it was New York right? I watched that for years….I also like Road Rules and I liked the challenges…I sometimes still watch the challenges and can’t believe that some of those people are still around. I think I stopped after Hawaii, that one girl was so drunk….I know I watched some of the San Diego just to see because there were so many stories in the newspaper and on the news about disturbances at the house….the neighborhood was Pissed, with a capital P!!

    Jill is not that I want Moe to look bad. I wanted to know his reaction and what he told Lisa after filming was done that day.
    The comment was about Mauricio. Lisa said it in front of Mauricio. I find it odd Mauricio never voiced concer even after filming that day. Kyle went on and in and on and on and on on Crying Heads about it. Why didn’t she tell Lisa how hurt she was by it?
    It could’ve saved us viewers from countless Crying Heads.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Why don’t any of them confront their problems then and there instead of waiting for the reunion? If I knew the answer to that I would steal Andy’s job! Maybe Mauricio didn’t make a big deal but when Andy brought it up he said how he felt? Idk? He wasn’t outraged at Lisa at the reunion for saying it but he did say it bothered him-he didn’t make a giant deal about it at the reunion so maybe he just chalked it up to Lisa being Lisa. Why didn’t Lisa ask Mauricio why he said “then that’s a f-ing bit*h” at the reunion but tweeted about it like it was the most insulting thing in the world? Idk and idk why the HW and HH do what they do but I do think Bravo plays the biggest role in all of it.

      • VV™ says:

        I’m not asking about the effin B comment. Just Mauricio’s reaction because that was the only storyline for the Umanskys. I don’t expect Mauricio to apologized. He hardly ever does it. He’s not very humble and full of himself. I think he is a control freak and has a temper. There is a reason why Kathy doesn’t like him. Kim used to not like him. He is a product of his mommy.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          How do you Kathy doesn’t like Mauricio? Does she not follow him on twitter or something like that?
          I will never understand why you say he has a temper? Brandi told him to STFU last season and he never even leaned into the conversation-if he had a temper I would think he would have reacted to that a lot different than we saw-like how Ken reacted to the women-angry and aggressive and demeaning- Mauricio didn’t do anything remotely close.
          I brought up the effiing B thing b/c you asked why Mauricio and Kyle weren’t shown voicing their concern about the joke Lisa made-I know you weren’t asking about it I was making a comparison.

          • VV™ says:

            Again, I’m not talking about Ken…..I’m talking about Moe. I think Moe has a temper because I’ve seen him displayed on camera.

            I still would like to know how he reacted after the Lisa’s comments on and off camera. It was the boring story line Dave Rupel came up and told for Kyle S4.

            I think rumors of Kathy not liking her brother in law were prior to him leaving HH. He strikes me as the controlling type and also a momma’s boy.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              When did you Mauricio show his temper? I must have missed that episode.
              As far as Kathy Hilton not liking someone be it true or just a rumor-I would hardly use her as a reference as to someone’s reputation-it’s not as if Kathy Hilton is a pillar of the community.

            • mrs peabody says:

              vv I get what you are asking about his reaction. It would have been nice to see that. I was under the impression he didn’t really have that much of one based on what we saw. It would be nice to know what went on after the scene was done. Maybe he had left by that time with his little lunch date. I don’t think she really understood what was being said myself. Should Lisa have made the comment probably not but I got her joke.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I Get what VV is asking also-I just don’t know when she saw Mauricio have display his temper.

                • PJ says:

                  But he did have a reaction and so did Kyle, and we did see that on camera. Plus we saw the reaction in PR. He was upset and hurt and he does genuinely love Ken so that makes it all the worse. I have never thought of Mauricio as having a bad temper though, getting pissed once does not equal bad temper. Mauricio is a gentleman and probably wouldn’t go off on Lisa. Ken seems to me to have a bad temper though.

        Yes Bravo has the starring role.

      • mm in oc says:

        The obvious answer is that in the real world this wouldnt have been a big deal. When you are on a show and you have producers telling you to create drama and confront people for every slight, then you keep bringing it up making it a bigger and bigger deal every time it’s discussed. The cheating rumors have been around since season one. In fact, I thought those conversations were worse (dinner from hell, allison thr psychic, camilles innuendo).

        So vv, Mo didnt respond because he didnt think it was a big deal at the time. Two months later and all hes heard is kyle bitching about it, he likely feels different and/or understands he neede to go along with the shit show.

    • Powell says:

      Lol “Crying Heads” VV. 😀

  15. Bottom line for me, IPPHO, re: Lisa, Kyle, Mo and Portia….. First of all….a 5 year old knows what the concept of cheating is….this is Kindergarten age, they have a couple of years of Preschool under their belts, they know to wait their turn and they ABSOLUTELY will point out if someone is cheating!!!! They have a strong sense of justice!!!! Now would they understand Mommy’s friend saying about their Daddy, “this is where the stories/rumors come from that he is seeing a younger woman.” ……I don’t know but I bet it would make her put on her “listening ears”. But what if Portia wasn’t there….IT WAS STILL A SHITTY THING TO SAY!!!! A joke is supposed to be FUNNY!!!! Something painful as stories of your husband cheating IS NOT FUNNY!!! and then on the other hand Kyle had NO PROBLEM bringing up Lisa’s #nipplegate …..NOT FUNNY, to bring up a tabloid talking about some soft porn video that Lisa was in….so tit for tat, LOL!!!! Just because Lisa didn’t make it her story line and cry about it in all her talking heads, I’m sure she was mortified….a little? They all signed up for this…..I don’t feel sorry for any of them.

    • Powell says:

      Yep, Yep, Yep. OMG youse guys are making it so easy for me to be agreeable today. 🙂 To me the only way I could see friends joking about it would be if this were 3,4 5 yrs after #tabloidgate. And only if the convo were in context amongst the friends and everyone is hehehe about the convo. Other than that it wasn’t good. And if there was one thing that Lisa could and should have apologized for to Kyle’s “Can’t you just apologize for one thing?”, that should have been it.

    • PJ says:

      I agree about the “joke/s” Lisa made it was a nasty thing to bring up and that’s the reason I don’t think it was really a joke at all. Lisa brought up nipple gate herself and Kyle merely repeated what Lisa had already joked about, nice on Kyle’s part no but a bit different. Yes, it is difficult to feel bad for any if them.

      • Oh, I don’t know about who brought it up, I was not really paying attention….and like you I am not going to go watch and if someone remembers it differently I am sure they will speak up…..:)

        And now I am feeling dizzy and weird, which actually makes me feel better about my daughter feeling dizzy. Obviously something is going around….so I am much more calm even though I feel so strange….ugh

      • kit9 says:

        Yes, exactly. The nipple comment was LISA’S OWN JOKE. And, Lisa wasn’t in a soft core porno, she was in a straight movie with brief nudity-nothing to be ashamed of. There was no porno which is why Lisa didn’t give a rat’s about it and was making jokes about it herself. And, Kyle’s comment was made to Martin, one of Lisa’s oldest friends, so there is no way she meant it in any insulting way and Martin laughed at it.

    • T-Rex says:

      I loves YA Ppindy, but I am going to agree to disagree with you about what a kid knows at five years old regarding cheating. True Story, we had a lovely outing on the lake with a bunch of my dad and mom’s friends, at Mr. A’s lake house, I was five, my sister 4,.well Mr. A did not have Mrs A on his arm that weekend, he had Miss DoubleD. Now, the adults were whispering and making copious jokes, none of which we “got”, we didn’t even realize that there was an issue with Mrs. A not being there and Miss DoubleD being there. Flash forward about six weeks, we are at my dad’s softball game, Mr. A is there of course, and my sister innocently asks if Miss DoubleD was going to be there, because she was so nice and braided her hair. We as kids did not “get” why Mrs A stomped off that afternoon, we did not get why Mrs. A stopped showing up to the softball games and parties, we didn’t even understand when they told us Mr and Mrs A got divorced. Now, of course that was in an age before smart phones, divorce being a part of normal society etc. So, I had my mom ask Riley, kindergartner, 6 years old a very innocuous question to help me out. You know what that little girl doesn’t miss much and is smarter than most folks in her class, they want her to skip a grade, and she didn’t get what my mom said and it was basically kinda what Lisa said, we did this as an experiment. We aren’t even sure Portia HEARD the joke, and I don’t believe she would have understood the joke. Oh and SMAUG SMAUG SMAUG SMAUG WE LOVE SMAUG!!

      • I think we were more protected, I don’t think I knew anyone that had divorced parents….I don’t think we disagree….I don’t think Portia understood what Lisa was saying…it would have to be explained to her, I meant she understood cheating as in games…..being cheated on would be a bigger concept. I probably didn’t explain what I meant properly. I was trying to say that no matter if Portia understood or not, it was a shitty thing to do. And also, she may not understand it now but this crap is out there for the rest of their lives and I think that these women are all crazy for exposing themselves and their children to this, not just BH but ALL reality shows!!! lol!!

        I think a child of five knows a great deal more than adults think they know. Even if they don’t immediately understand they talk and ask questions. If they do or don’t know it is still a nasty and disrespectful thing to ” joke” about even if no child is there at all.

          That’s how she was able to have an X-ray and it doesn’t show the implant. Like fillers in the face.

          If Brandi’s face was xrayed we may not see implants but there’s def filler!!!!

    First, I apologize for me typos today. I lm using my smart phone and I just dont think I’ll ever master touch screen (miss the qwerty).

    Second, its a beautiful week in socal! Met a friend downtown Huntington beach for lunch and walked along th pier. Gorgeous!

    regarding the lisa “younger woman” joke, can we all just agree that it reasonable to assume she didn’t get the joke? If you think it was a mean, bad, joke thats fine. I dont agree but I can respect that. But im not married. My best friend is married and always calls her husband her first husband, jokes about his female friends bring his girlfriends. He calls me his sister wife. It’s all fun and harmless in all our eyes. I dont think lisa said it maliciously, but if it hurt Kyle’s feelings she should apologize (and get this storyline over with)

    • Powell says:

      I think Lisa meant it as a joke. Kyle didn’t take it as a joke and when Lisa first bought it up, first said the words however she said it about what’s going on with what the tabloids are saying Kyle didn’t crack a smile about it. So to me if she’s not smiling about it, I’m not going to next go there and make a joke. So Lisa should have been able to gauge how Kyle was feeling at the first comment.

    • I too miss my keyboard and you are braver than me with the smartphone. I am married and I make those kind of jokes too but that’s because I don’t think my hubby fools around….We laugh that he is worth more dead than alive, that divorce is not in my vocab but homicide is….I don’t think Kyle took it as a joke because IPPHO, I think, she thinks Mo fools around, and it isn’t funny to her, I can’t imagine how horrible it would be and I don’t even like her all that much,…. I do think Lisa was making a joke. But I am also the same person that has been saying since Season 1 that I wouldn’t want Lisa as a friend because I don’t find her little digs funny. I think they are mean…but that is my personal issue, I am a big baby and get my feelings hurt very easily.

        We make insurance jokes all the time in my house.
        I totally see your point about being friends with the Queen vs just watching her.

        • Yes, I thoroughly enjoy watching her…she IS funny but very cutting. This is something that I have successfully stopped doing in high school……to my friends at least, lol!

          • PJ says:

            I enjoy watching Lisa too but she is very cutting and I would never want her as a friend. As to whether she was or wasn’t joking my opinion is that Lisa uses these “jokes” to cut people down and they aren’t funny. Have you ever had a friend who always jokes about something that is sensitive to you and you get sick of it? It’s very passive aggressive, but the way Lisa delivers a line sort of obscures that if it isn’t directed at you. Why did Lisa feel she had the right to bring this up in the first place? Lisa says she was just trying to get it out there to show how ridiculous it was and that you shouldn’t pay attention to the tabloids, but come on it wasn’t Lisa’s call to put it out there for any reason. Does Lisa have the right to decide something like this herself without taking into consideration what the people actually involved want or even discussing it with them? People reveal themselves if you are paying attention and in this Lisa is revealing something about herself. But her charm and wit are so distracting many people aren’t seeing beyond that. I doubt there are many people who would appreciate having a friend “joke” about something so serious if it were being put out there on national TV. This after all could impact their family, their business, and if there is a grain of truth to it, as some suggest, then it’s a pretty painful thing too.

            • THIS!!! Very well put. I was involved with a gaggle of women that were like this and one on one they could be nice but add one or two of them to the mix and it was jr. high all over again, I kept my distance as much as was possible!!! And NEVER let them know anything personal, any of them!!!

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I CAN AND DO see beyond her wit and charm…I just don’t care enough. Lisa had her share of rumors and digs whose grains of truth could hurt her family and business, too. So it’s a pretty level playing field. They’ve all given sh1t , they’ve all received sh1t. They’ve practiced an odd form of the golden rule. We all can see and discern the same things here, were all at least semi intelligent, somewhat discerning folk…we just choose to get worked up or not depending on the castmember and how we do or don’t relate to them.

              • PJ says:

                Oh Lainey you know Lisa gets a pass. Just admit one thing, just one.

                  • PJ says:

                    Lol!!!! Oh I think the Lisa debate will go on and on, it’s bigger than the two of us Lainey.

  22. mariareads says:

    OK. Hope I don’t offend anyone with this. Talking about BH this season-really-who had any kind of story that any of us would be interested in? NOBODY. So…they had to take Kyle and make her upset over the tabloids knowing that Lisa with her English snarky wit would stick both her vanderpumps in her mouth about it. The scene in the kitchen with Portia doesn’t bother me. She may be smart but she’s 5. The words used were not plain as in “so your husband is cheating with a younger woman but that younger woman is in this kitchen” or whatever. I remember being 5. While I was pretty observant and quiet, I would never have understood the way Lisa put that issue out there. I don’t know too many 5 year olds who would. Just saying…please don’t throw rocks-just nickels. Did Brandi have a story line other than being a drinking, whoring PITA? Did Joyce other than talking about her husband’s giant pee-pee? Did Yolanda other than constantly reminding us that she has lyme disease and it has been horrible and nobody came to see her? Did Kim? (Someone slap me for asking that.) Did Carlton other than her sex toy room which was creepy and stupid? Did Lisa if they weren’t attacking her? To quote Carlton “And there it is!!!” there was no story for anybody this year. It sucked. It was boring and stupid and there was nothing there. I believe Bravo does exactly what Big Brother does to it’s HG’s. They ask them questions, they spoil the soup and send them back out there to be angry over stupid things. Otherwise, someone, please tell me what the enormous story of RHBH’s was this year?

    For Husker:
    2 4 6 8, Come on Husker’s Daughter, Dilate!
    Push it out! Push it out! Waaayyy out!

    This will probably be a very unpopular view here. When I heard Lisa’s “younger woman” comment, I took it as Lisa making fun of the rumors about Mauricio being unfaithful to Kyle. The rumors that obviously must have been going around before Lisa said anything. And I don’t think Lisa planned the comment. And if Portia comprehended anything at all of that comment, it was that her daddy was taking her out for lunch (or whatever). It was less than 4 seconds and it’s been spread out to last the whole season. Hell, folks are still arguing about it HERE!! I figure Kyle was looking for some ammunition to use against Lisa and there it came. MagazineGate? Brandi’s word against Lisa. With two other HWs saying they never saw any magazines. And it seems the “Truth Cannon” (btw, 2 “n”s, not 1) blasts “her” truth, which doesn’t have much to do with reality.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I think if Lisa and Kyle were actually friends and we take the kid out of the kitchen-then maybe it’s just a dumb joke. Lisa pretty much called Kyle a liar and an opportunist at the reunion last season so I’m guessing they were not BFF when the season started. If Lisa wanted to chat about the rumors so she could show support to Kyle then she should have done that-she didn’t-she made smart ass jokes and then told Ken she wasn’t sure if they were true or not. Lisa isn’t the devil for doing this-she’s just shady-she isn’t the first shady housewife and she won’t be the last. She half assed her apology at the reunion b/c she still was trying to convince everyone that she brought the rumors to the show to squash them-I guess she thinks bringing things up on national TV helps to ensure that no one will talk about them.

      • PJ says:

        I guess Lisa feels she has the right to bring up other peoples issues on camera. In doing this Lisa has better delivery than Brandi but what she is doing is no better.

      • kit9 says:

        A couple of things about the opinion it was a joke. Lisa KNOWS KYLE WELL. And, she knew damn well Kyle wouldn’t find any joke about it funny. She knew that. So, I call complete bs on her pathetic claim it was a joke. Lisa made the comment about Portia for one reason-to get the details of the cheating allegations out. Kyle wasn’t helping Lisa out in that regard because she stood there stunned and didn’t say a word. So, Lisa made the comment about Portia so everyone would understand the rumors involved a younger woman
