Welcome back… Last week we left Vicki positively speechless (I know, shocking, right?) when Heather and Tamra started grilling her about her current relationship status with Brooks during dinner on their last night in Hawaii. It’s too bad that Vicki’s “Brooks” has ruined everyone whose name is “Brooks” for me… That includes Mel Brooks, Albert Brooks, Garth Brooks, and Brooke Burke. Heck, now I even look askance at “babbling brooks” these days.

Vicki insists that Brooks is helping to make her happy (gag). She explains that she and Brooks went to counseling separately. I guess somehow that means that they should be dating. Brooks has told Vicki that she is worth fighting for… In my opinion, this feeds into Vicki’s romanticized notion of love wherein a man on a white horse rides in and fights heroically for her hand in marriage. I am all for Vicki dating whomever she wants to date – regardless of what her adult daughter or this blogger thinks. However, I have not seen much evidence of Brooks respecting Vicki or her family. He is just too danged slickery for me. But fortunately, I don’t ever have to date him… Whew… (shivers).

In her talking head, Tamra bravely says that Vicki is just out to prove everyone wrong about Brooks… VickiBut to Vicki’s face, Tamra’s all about giving Brooks another chance. Vicki explains she wants to take her relationship with Brooks to another level – Which to Vicki means moving in together. They talk about what this would mean to Vicki’s very disapproving daughter Briana (who is probably moving to Oklahoma, if you didn’t read last week’s musical production notes). It’s becoming more and more clear to me that Vicki just wants someone to play with… And Brooks fits that need at the moment. On a side note, may I say that Vicki looks absolutely fabulous… Her hair, her face… I think even her dimples are smiling these days.

Shannon’s kids are going to cotillion classes. Honestly, I didn’t even know they still had this kind of thing here in Southern California. For those of us who have blue collars, Shannon explains that “cotillion” is a class on etiquette, manners, and dance.  This means the girls have to wear pantyhose and gloves.  David, Shannon’s husband, who also happens to have a blue collar, had never heard of it before… His daughter politely explained that perhaps it’s because he doesn’t have good manners.  I’m sure she said it with her pinky properly extended. Shannon takes this opportunity to tell us that she’s cranky with her husband because she doesn’t get to spend much time with him and she feels disconnected from him. I think Shannon has a problem with over-sharing.

Tamra wants Eddie to hang curtains with a gigantic power tool.  Okay, it’s only an electric screwdriver, but still… Not sure if it’s just me – but Eddie seemed very inept with this electric screwdriver. He seemed so ill at ease to me that I’m not sure I’d even let him around an electric toothbrush. I would have thought he would have been used to things that vibrate in his hand, but that’s a whole nuther Oprah.

Since her kids are with her ex-husband Simon for Halloween, Tamra tells Eddie that she wants to invite the witches in her life over for a “Spooky Party.” She doesn’t want it to be a “costumey” kind of party – but instead she wants it to be scary. Eddie does not want her to have an Ouija board but Tamra thinks it would be a good idea. Gee, I wonder who is going to win this battle?

Tamra really misses her kids because she only sees them 50% of the time. Although Eddie is content with their family exactly how it is right now, Tamra really wants to consider having a baby with Eddie. Since Tamra has had her tubes tied, they would have to explore other ways to have children… For example, through a surrogate or through an adoption.  It’s hard for Tamra to think that she and Eddie are a family when her kids aren’t around.  I know a lot of single people and childless couples who wrestle with the concept of being a family that doesn’t include kids. Many consider this to be a huge hole in their lives and they agonize over it every single day.

On one hand, I can totally understand how a mom would deeply miss her children if she only got to see them 50% of the time. On the other hand, Tamra just spent last week’s episode complaining about how busy her life is (with the opening of their fitness studio) – So when would Tamra have time for the kids 100% of the time? I suspect Tamra doesn’t want to work at the fitness studio anymore…lol… In other news, in the “I’m surprised she has okay taste” portion of our program, Tamra has little by little modified she and Eddie’s home to reflect her feminine tastes. The once dark and dreary bachelor pad is now light and airy.  Who knew Tamra had good taste? I really didn’t look that closely… but the overall look is much better, IPPHO.

Vicki comes to the “Spooky Party” early so she and Tamra can get the appropriate spooky make-up treatment – Except that Vicki does not want to be scary – She wants to be, “cute.”  I don’t blame her – She paid a lot of money for that face. Tamra breaks the news to Vicki that Heather is bringing a “friend” to the party with her.  “Welcome Wagon Vicki” snottily retorts, “Oh joy, another new b*** I’ve got to like.”  That’s got to be the quote of the night, no?

Vicki always takes hold of teachable moments so she can impart her words of wisdom in our general direction. In her talking head, Vicki instructs us that there are absolutely, positively 3 things she always lives by when she meets new people. These are must haves – and if you’re found lacking, you’re just out of luck as far as Vicki is concerned. Okay, get out your “Hello Kitty” notepads and purple pens because you’re gonna want to write these down. Vicki says the 3 things that she lives by when she meets new people are as follows and I quote, “You have to make me laugh, I have to learn from you, and… and… and… ummm… ummm…” <Zap…zap… bzzzzzzz…. nothing…> Wow, it’s so pivotal to life itself that Vicki can’t even remember the third thing she always lives by… I’m completely dying laughing because that’s so something I would totally do, too… lol.  I’d probably remember the 3rd thing at 2:19 AM after waking up from a deep sleep!

Tamra - IntroIt’s the night of the “Spooky Party.” Her Royal Heatherness is bringing new girl Shannon to meet all the other housewife witches.  Shannon will no doubt be quickly volunteered to be the “human sacrifice” should one be necessary during the course of the evening. Her Royal Heatherness’ “Zit Tip” of the night:  If you have a huge blemish on your forehead and if you’re going to a spooky party – Just plop a 3rd eye right over it and no one will ever know the difference.  Except of course if you tell everyone, because then people will just keep staring at your 3rd eye to see if they can actually see the outline of the zit in question.  I know I did… lol.

In yet another rookie mistake, “Over-sharing Shannon” criticizes the quality of the food at the “Spooky Party.” While “Over-sharing Shannon” likes the creative presentation of food at this “Spooky Party” – She complains that there is nothing really of substance to eat. She notes that a blob of marshmallow really isn’t dinner, and neither are a couple of pieces of watermelon.  “Over-sharing Shannon” doesn’t yet understand that housewives rarely eat while filming… but she will learn…

Spooky1Shock of all shocks… Vicki seems to really hit it off with Shannon especially when she finds out that Shannon is also an Aries! They all start talking about their recent trip to Hawaii when “Over-sharing Shannon” turns the conversation towards the brontosaurus-sized bone she has to pick about her husband. “Over-sharing Shannon” is cranky that her husband prioritizes vacations with the guys a couple of times a year over the two of them going away for some husband and wife alone time together. Evidently, in their entire 13 years of marriage, they’ve never gone away on a trip alone… Whoa… What’s up with that?  It was suggested that Shannon plan a trip… But Shannon insists that she needs to see the effort made on her husband’s part… Okay, well, so Shannon, how’s that working for ya?

Okay, at the risk of making everyone mad at me… It just drives me crazy when someone demands that their spouse jump through hoop after hoop to just make them happy. If Shannon wants to go on a trip with her husband – She should tell him she wants to plan a trip with him and that he’s responsible to make dinner reservations for a couple of nights or perhaps he picks the hotel or something. Granted, David should have recognized by now that this is important to his wife and he should have stepped up to plan something. I mean, it’s just so danged easy to get away here – Within a 2 hour driving radius you can easily be in a cabin in the mountains, at a beachside resort, down in San Diego, up in Los Angeles, or in the apple orchards of Julian, etc… This should not be a hard thing to do. However, to be fair – from what I’ve seen thus far about Shannon, I’m not sure that any plans that David makes would be good enough for her… Shannon would like us to believe she is so danged down to earth… but then I quickly remember that she actually sends her daughters to cotillion classes. Sorry, I don’t buy it…

Oh goodie, Shannon is reprimanding her husband again. Evidently, there is a feng shui law that requires they maintain 9 lemons in a basket for good energy at all times.  And horror of all horrors, you guessed it, hubster wanted to use one of the lemons. Silly, silly him… Wait… whose job is it to make sure they have enough lemons in the house? It can’t be his job, can it? Where is YoYo when you need her and her lemons?

Shannon tells David she wants to have her new friends over for dinner. She wants to make everything herself instead of calling a caterer. I think that’s kind of kewl. Shannon has decided that David will have to cook his famous beef dish. David isn’t sure about Shannon’s choice of menu because he thinks that meat is a very heavy meal. They bicker back and forth about this. Do any of us really think that David is going to win this particular battle?

Opinion talkHeather, Tamra and Shannon meet for dinner.  Shannon invites the women to a dinner party at her house…  Her Royal Heatherness and Tamra really don’t know what to make of Shannon.  Shannon tells them that she has jewels placed inside her teeth because gems can heal. Yes folks, Shannon actually feng shui’ed her mouth.  The holistic dentist who recommended this treatment told her it would cost $20,000. Shannon balked at the price. The dentist, “consulted his psychic network of friends” (I kid you not) and found out that in one of Shannon’s former lives that she had “saved a nation” and he would therefore be honored to provide the work for free. Okay, raise your hand if you thought of “Miss Cleo” or “Dionne Warwick” when you read, “psychic network of friends.”…lol…

Heather tries to tell Shannon that she is concerned that, “People like you” who are very trusting, holistic and open – May get taken advantage of by others.  Tamra doesn’t think you should ever say, “People like you” and she knows very well that if someone had used that same terminology towards Heather that she would have flipped a fig. So in case you’ve missed one of the major storylines this season, it’s that Her Royal Heatherness is up “here” and everyone else is down “there.”  Sighs… Can’t this franchise come up with different words to describe the same thing? I hate it when we quote Kelly Bensimon of RHONYC.  Satchels of gold.

Heather opinionIn a quirky, funny way Shannon recognizes that she’s a walking contradiction. She wants to create the most healthy, non-toxic environment that she can for herself and her family… And yet she drives an Escalade.  She wants to be healthy… Yet she doesn’t exercise.  Laughingly, she says she knows she doesn’t make sense and she wishes she could figure herself out.

Tamra tells the others that she and Eddie are talking about having a child together.  Heather asks her what Eddie thinks. Tamra says that Eddie is content with their current situation. Tamra tells them that she only gets to see her kids 50% of the time at this point (Like almost every other divorced parent). Heather asks if that’s why she’s pushing Eddie in the direction of having more kids. Tamra breaks down crying and says she wants a baby that would be hers and Eddie’s. Tamra doesn’t want to be a part-time mom.  Heather thinks that Tamra may want to have another baby because she thinks it will somehow fill the void of the other 50% of the time when she doesn’t have her children around her. Heather seems to feel it might be a replacement for what Tamra’s lost through the divorce.  Shannon thinks Her Royal Heatherness has an awful lot of opinions and little red flags are springing up everywhere for her regarding Heather.

Tamra - babyIn the spirit of full disclosure, I’ve glossed over a couple of scenes involving Vicki. One of them is centered around Vicki’s obnoxious adult son, Michael who is basically walking around the house brushing his teeth and criticizing Vicki. For those who care, Michael has moved to San Diego and can telecommute to work. I hear it’s because he is the son of the boss…lol. It doesn’t seem like Vicki has ever visited him in San Digo – I’m guessing he won’t give her the address – like when he lived in Balboa. The other scene is of an individual counseling session wherein Vicki talks about Briana and Brooks yet again. Ugh. The counselor says that Vicki has allowed Briana to have a lot of control over her life. The counselor wants everyone to be responsible for their own thoughts and feelings. He tells Vicki she should allow Briana to have her own thoughts and feelings… and that Vicki should maintain her own thoughts and feelings as well.

Oh goodie, I was wondering why we hadn’t had another scene of “Over-sharing Sharon” criticizing her husband for a whole 10 minutes.  Evidently, it was David’s job to pick-up wine for the dinner that evening. He meant to get 4 bottles of red and 4 bottles of white wine. However, when he was at the store, he was only given 2 bottles of wine. When he tried to text and to call Shannon, she evidently didn’t answer because she had so much other stuff going on.  He actually comes home with only 2 bottles of wine. Shannon flipped out because what if everyone wants wine? She demands that he go back to the store. By now, we’ve all seen this humungous home – How can they NOT have a wine cellar downstairs? Or at the very least – a place to keep several bottles at a time? I cannot believe that they only have the 2 bottles of wine in the entire house… However, perhaps wine bottles are fung shui-challenged. Actually, I think this entire house is fung shui-challenged no matter how many crystals were originally buried when they poured the foundation for this home. I don’t know about you, but I’ve not seen too much evidence of peace and harmony. Can you imagine how bad it would be if there weren’t crystals in the foundation of the house and in Shannon’s teeth?

Rut roh, there’s no fuel for the torch so that they can torch the crème brûlées.  I guess that was David’s job, too.  Oh no, the potatoes aren’t done either – They’re still crunchy. I’m sure that’s David’s fault, too.  While her guests are fending for themselves out in the living room, holistic, down to earth Shannon is busy zapping the heck out of the potatoes in the ever healthful microwave oven.  Oh no, now they can’t find the carving knife for the beef. Turn around David, Shannon probably stuck it in your back.

Meanwhile, the living room crowd are amusing themselves with nice stories and platitudes. Heather and Terry talk about their darling 3 year-old (Collette) whom they affectionately call “Cocoa Bean.”  Terry launches into a story about how “Cocoa Bean” is “so mean” to him when he comes home from work. If he kisses her on the head, she runs off and screams to mommy about it. You just know that Tamra is giving Terry the evil eye from across the room because Eddie is sitting there listening to all of this.  I’m sure Tamra wants to kick Terry in the shins because this is certainly not helping persuade Eddie into entertaining the idea of having a child.

And I bet you thought I forgot… but in this week’s edition of “I Kid You Not”… Terry, when referring to his darling 3 year-old daughter, actually said, “She’s such a b***.”  I kid you not! So riddle me this… At what age is it EVER appropriate to call your own daughter a b***? I’m guessing 3 is a little young… Is it 13?  23?  I just can’t believe he did that… Can you imagine the taunting Collette’s going to get by the other kids in the family, “Daddy called you a b*** on national TV….. hahahahahaha!” What was he thinking? It just boggles my mind…

The guests are trying to talk loud enough so they don’t hear the bickering that’s going on in the kitchen. As David and Shannon join their guests, David said he was told that a Sagittarius can’t ever please an Aries. He said that simple truth explained so much to him – He said it was like an awakening, “Right, Shannon?” Over-sharing Shannon, dryly responds, “Apparently… Because you won’t let it go….” Vicki seemed to get shivers because this whole evening reminded Vicki of what life was like when she was married to Don… Vicki is concerned for Shannon and David because if they are saying these kinds of things in front of people they barely know – What must they be saying to each other behind closed doors?

Well, that closes the door on this week’s episode.  See ya next week!

      Have to read blogs later! … Oh, on WWHL lat night Andy said they were going to tape a Southern Charm reunion next week. I think that means they were happy with the show. Maybe they waited to see the ratings before they taped a reunion? Or maybe they wanted the baby news out there before they taped. Anyway! Glad to hear.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Have a great day AZGirl! In Nebraska, we call your birthday Arbor Day. It’s a day where we all got out of school for a few minutes to plant a tree. It’s now known as Earth Day, but it began here in Nebraska. A bit of knowledge for your birthday. Blow some candles for me!

    Good morning everyone. Happy hump day eve. We’re getting rain today. I guess it wouldn’t hurt. Better today since I’m working at home. 🙂 Everyone be good and have a great day.

  4. Powell says:

    Watching Wendy Williams. She said yesterday she said Kenya and Porsha should go. She thinks Kenya needs to be fired cuz she’s too good for the show. Kenya won’t quite so she needs to be fired. Wendy said clearly she doesn’t have an African BF. Hehe. She said Kenya is wasting all her smarts and chance for getting married. She read Kenya said she could have taken Porsha down in three shot cuz she’s taken Israeli fighting techniques. Wendy said she doesn’t believe her cuz she’s too posed for fighting. In other news Richard Gere is dating Padma.

    • Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

      Richard Gere and Padma Lakshmi? Yew.

      • Sus says:

        He got tired of waiting for me. The hamster scared me off.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Did you imagine it escaping and running down his leg? Did you know that whole story is said to be a myth. My question, how does a myth LIKE THAT get started???! Did someone just pull it out of his … Oh nevermind.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Haha! They deserve each other. He’s seems smarmy and she seems conceited. Have fun expecting each other to be perfect!

  5. Powell says:

    Stars Brooks is slickery, slippery and slimey. If she wants to date him, whatever. Brooks will be living the life of Riley in Vicki’s house and Vicki can say she will not let anyone take advantage of her but to me Vicki is blinded by her fear of being alone and Brooks will do. Kinda sad. Hey what is going on w/the fraud case against Brooks and Vicki by Vicki’s vodka biz partner? Deets someone. Deets. 😀

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Powellypooh, I have no deets. But remember how Vicki G let her son in law run the household? That was weird. I guess she was afraid of losing her daughter.

  6. Powell says:

    “Over Sharing Shannon”, I love it and we must use it, will go to yr 14, 15, and so on w/o going on vaca w/her husband. I guess she’s sniffed too much corning insulation before cuz that’s just nuts to me.

  7. Powell says:

    LOL Stars just reading this I thought of Dionne Warwick and LaToya Jackson. 🙂

  8. Powell says:

    LOL I’m watching The View and guest co-host Jawn Murray said Kenya isn’t leaving HWs. Atl is the biggest thing she’s done since winning her crow. She’s not going back to her straight to DVD movie career. HA!!!

  9. Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

    Morning all. Thanks to Stars and BB for the recaps. Interesting reading for sure. Happy Birthday AZ Girl. Hope its a great one.

  10. Orson says:

    Re: Vicki & Brooks… Vicki always struck me as being unable to admit to being wrong. Unless it’s someone else’s fault. So, Tamra, Briana, etc. telling Vicki that Brooks is scum just makes Vicki dig her heels in more. I hope Donn got a good settlement. He’s much better off with her out of his life.

    Shannon is just looney tunes. Filtered air, no WiFi, bejeweled teeth, psychic cosmetic dentists, astrology, feng shui? Boy oh boy, is she ever going to be surprised at her blog comments and incoming tweets. That is, if she has a computer. And as for the way she mistreats her husband, I suppose she must give him VERY good BJs when she does provide them.

    Is “B***” the same as “The B-word”? No, you don’t call your 3 year old daughter that, even if it’s intended humourously and ESPECIALLY not in front of cameras filming a TV show that’s going to be broadcast nationally.

    Tamra wants a business of her own. She wants to have a gym of her own. And she likes an excuse to wear flattering work-out clothes. She just doesn’t want to actually do any work there. I think she and Eddie should try raising a puppy together before they make a baby. On second thought, that would be a cruel thing to do to a puppy, wouldn’t it? Maybe a kitten would be better? They’re more independent, need less attention, and usually come litter box trained. Maybe Tamra’s just thinking ahead about locking Eddie into 18 years of child support?

    • Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

      Please spare the kitten. I’m quite certain Tamra is planning on the 18 years of child support since she doesn’t want to work.

      • jezzibel says:

        spare the kitten, go with a houseplant. Orson I think you’re right about Vicki, she doesn’t want to admit she is wrong about Brooks(and he is laughing while he cleans her out), I bet she thought Donn would have come back after she pushed him away and tried to make him fight for her, but Donn just shrugged his shoulders and left(taking a nice chunk of change with him).

    • Powell says:

      Shannon better ask for all her holistic fung shui money back cuz she is miserable and making her husband miserable. And get WiFi, paint the entire house w/VOC paints and while you’re at it break a mirror cuz maybe WiFi rays, paint fumes and 7 yrs of bad luck will be a reversal of fortune for that house.

    • Powell says:

      Well Orson last season Terry thought telling everyone that he told Heather maybe they should get a divorce was a joke so calling cute Collette a B is a mild joke to him. The problem is Heather doesn’t let Terry speak and when he does it’s like he’s speaking for the first time and often puts his foot in his mouth.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Good point, he actually seems really nice from what I remember – not watching this season. He does seem nervous to talk. Because ,…she’s watching!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Great comment, Orson.

  11. mimisfbay says:

    This was just so hilarious, thanks!

  12. Happy Birthday AZGirl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Stars, what the heck is going on in The OC!! hahaha I LOVE “Over Sharing Shannon”, too funny! I HATE being around couples that put each other down like that. And who leaves all that stuff to the night of the dinner party, seriously… have all those people helping and you can’t get it together????? I just thought the whole thing was ri.dic!!! AND that woman helping was NOT a chef, a cook maybe, lol, but NOT a chef!! But what a pantry, too bad it’s not organized… Although OSS’s hubs did have a funny line about the knife… Dr. Terri is exactly what Heather deserves…she wants to be so ladylike and she has him, Mr. Class, he needs to go to cotillion. And I am SHOCKED that Heather doesn’t have her kids in cotillion!!!! I LAUGHED when I heard cotillion, lol. My poor friend had to take her kids and she was always fighting her boys over going, they DID NOT WANT TO BE THERE!!! I was lucky, they would have kicked my son out the first day, and my daughter was such a tomboy, lol! Anyway, my friend would tell me stories and we would just die laughing about it. Oh and poor Tammy Sue looked shell shocked to be at such a “highfaluting” dinner party, she looked like she didn’t want to move for fear of doing something wrong, or maybe I was just hoping that was why she was so well behaved, maybe she wasn’t drunk enough…yet…….can’t wait for the “stick up the ass” confrontation, lol!! I guess that Heather is “it” this season!

    • Powell says:

      I do too about the bickering couples. But why in the hell would David call Shannon about the wine? You need 4 bottles. The store only had two? Go to another store if you have to. Don’t call your wife and don’t go home w/o 4 bottles of wine. He knew she would throw a fit. Not smart.

    Hello – I just watched Nene on DWTS and while she did great how the heck did that dance translate to a Salsa?
    I love Nelly and when Hot in Here was first released it came on the radio as I was entering out neighborhood. I rolled down the windows and put it on blast! Kids were mortified and ducked down in their seats so they wouldnt be seen. 😛 I laughed all the way to our Carriage Court.

      HA! Thanks For the Edit … Jeff? TT?

    • chismosa™ says:

      I LOVE nelly and I HATE that nene is allowed to be in flats every week.


      • Powell says:

        Well we see she can’t walk in Loubis. But I bet she didn’t like the dance shoes and refused to wear them . I remember when Master P was a contestant he refused to wear the men’s shoe and the unitard.

        • chismosa™ says:

          If Wendy obliged and wore a kitten heel, all women should be forced to.
          A tiny tiny heel.

          Dancing in flats gives you an UNFAIR advantage IMHO.
          When my shoes come off I dance even better – (if that’s even possible) ROTFL! Jk

      Visualizing you with the car windows down blasting Hot in Herr.

    Happy Birthday AZGirl!!! *hugs AZGirl really hard* *sts down carvel ice cream cake* – hope all of your wishes come true!

    “oversharing Shannon” – love that! she is a moonbat, that one – and yes, it is Heather’s turn to get abused -as for Brooks – the more people object, the more Vikki will dig her heels in – I think moving to OK will be a good thing for both Brianna and for Vikki – Brooks is a snake oil salesman – shady as all get out and I worry for Vikki for being involved with him – I am hoping that once the drama over her seeing him dies down, if it does, she will start to see him as he truly is – and then run like hell! – ooooh Michael – I would sooo smack the back of his head had he spoken to me like that – what a brat – Vikki needs to try to find a way to make peace with herself so that she can find a way to live her own life – her son is a rude spoiled little boy and trying to have a life through him – trying to make his life better – will not help her find her own path –

    as for Terri calling his own daughter a curse word – no, Dr. Terri, it did not make you sound all cool and down – it made you sound like the asshat that you are – good job –

    I am a little curious as to how Heather will handle the take down coming her way –

    and I still don’t like Tamara – sooo happy though not to see Gretch or Slimey – oh so happy for that –

    Has anyone been following the great twitter war going on with Carole’s assistant? Miss Amia posted screenshots of this racist, immature brat’s tweets. Holy moly, this guy is totally vile.

    I am totally disgusted with Carole for hiring and supporting this guy. She is smart enough to have checked him out before hiring him. If she didn’t check out his tweets before hiring him to tweet for her, she’s a total idiot.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I wrote a whole comment – it may post later I’m in a bad “zone” — there were aids jokes, Down syndrome jokes and MORE fun things to joke about !

      I posted last blog and a couple here found them funny. I took screen shots in case they disappear

      Carole it’s disgusting. No vetting before hiring I guess. 😬

      • ladebra says:

        Really? Take a Xanax.

        What I said was “Ok, that tweet about how old do you have to be before I can call you an a$$hole, please say 6 …. that’s funny lol #sorrynotsorry”

        • chismosa™ says:

          Sorry it came out wrong, didn’t know which particular one/s you looked at. Wasn’t sure if they were all organized in one spot.
          Apologies I’m driving ….. Forgive me !

          This guy’s gross

          • ladebra says:

            Don’t text and drive!

            • iceNfire says:

              How can you two be arguing but not know which comment you are arguing about?

              Don’t text and drive! Ever!

            • chismosa™ says:

              I was speaking to the comments on the last blog. I’m sorry ICE didn’t get that. LADeb got me. I hope you got me Deb. I hope it’s not mandarin. 🈴🈲🉐🈹🈚️🈵🈳🈯️

              No need to point out how crazy my comments are – I already know 🔫🔫🔫

              — I am not physically DRIVING as I text. That is against the law.
              Although everyone around me is always holding a phone to their head and driving. People are I

              they should all get points taken off.

              • ladebra says:

                I got ‘ya! … we weren’t arguing were we? I type in caps when I argue, that’s how you will know. 😉

                • chismosa™ says:


                  I’m sorry I type in caps all the time just to put the right emph–ASIS on the right syLLABLE.

                  I’m not screaming — I swear 🙂

    • chismosa™ says:

      I don’t understand not checking him out before. Makes zero sense so I hold it against her. She’s not social media incompetent.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Anne Frank, heroin, and southern accents are dumb are the ones I just screenshot.
        So witty! 👏👏👏

    • kit9 says:

      Omg, what a despicable vile person he is! And, Carole was retweeting him just 4 days ago so she obviously has no problem with his disgusting racist comments-which were probably some of the less offensive things he tweeted.

  16. Veena (NMD) says:

    Hello from Dubrovnik. In the natural history museum here is an entire room on the building of the Suez Canal – and guess who is featured – De Lesseps – LuLu’s ex’s granddad I think. They call the invasive fish that have entered the Mediterranean through the canal something like Lessepian species. I had a little private chuckle.

    Yesterday was Montenegro –

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I’ve never known anyone who could say to me, hello from Dubrovnik! What an amazing trip you are on. Me jealous . . . no, not much! Enjoy!

    • Powell says:

      Wow totally awesome. Again great pictures.

    • Orson says:

      Oh, this could be good. So, will Andy grow a pair and fire Kenya? He might be able to use this as an excuse. Or ammunition to get her to quit. It seems there is no lack of women with no shame in Atlanta who’d be willing to be on the show.

    • Powell says:

      OMG Funky Dineva called her an old ho from the 90s. Daannngghhh. 😉

      • chismosa™ says:

        Wait this person did? Because Porsha called her that at the reunion when attacking Kenya , who of course was ✳️✳️Bullying✳️✳️ & ✳️Provoking✳️ poor sad adorable Porsha.

        That’s what Stupid ™ said of her many things, to Kenya.

  17. iceNfire says:

    From Vicki’s blog ” It seems now that my kids are making their choices without any concern of what I feel…so I guess it’s my time to do the same” … She is in for a rude awaking when she discovers her kids are to busy living their own lives to care about how she is living hers,1

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I give up Vicki. I guess your children should just blindly agree with you regardless of how they feel. Did you raise robots or individuals with minds and opinions of their own? Please do everyone a big favor already – marry the jerk, let him steal you blind, divorce you and leave you with nothing. Put us all out of our misery. You’ve made two wrong choices already – now go for the trifecta!

      • Orson says:

        Um, Vicki? Remember, your daughter got pregnant and eloped (that was the order, right?) so she could get married and NOT have to deal with your wedding madness. There’s absolutely no doubt you’d have been the MotheroftheBridezilla from Hell. And Michael won’t tell you his address so you can’t drop in unannounced.

        • Powell says:

          Vicki’s the boss and owner so all she has to do is look at the w2 files for his address unless he’s still using her address for mailing. 😉

      • Powell says:

        Yes. Please just marry Brooks already. I’m looking forward to the stories that he’s cleaned out her bank accounts, mortgaged her house and moved to Belize w/a new GF. I don’t care anymore.

    • Powell says:

      WTH?!?!? Her kids are grown asshole people. If they want to get married, have kids and move to Timbuktu they’re old enough to make that decision. And it’s not her kids fault that she’s a dumb ass that totally listened to what her daughter said and then cried about it all the time or snuck around to see slicky sticky Brooks. I’m not feeling sorry for her.

  18. HuskerHuny says:

    My baby is two weeks old today. She just keeps getting prettier and prettier. I so wish she lived closer!

  19. ladebra says:

    Oh PChick this is hilarious! thought of you when I saw it was about bunnies.. hope this works, and doesn’t break the blog 😦

  20. chismosa™ says:

    Thanks for the blogs stars and BB

    I had cotillions in my high school – one for freshman year and one for sophomore. Or wait, no I think soph and junior year. Yes because junior year it was a cotillion AND A prom.
    For us it was a formal dance ….. ???


    BTW- I watched the first epi of southern charm!!
    I liked whitney until he said no carbs about beer which leads me to think he’s picky on what his girls eat.
    Tom R! Reminds me a bit of the catholic wasps (so more, WhiteAngloSaxon/IrishCatholic)??, near where I grew up. Couldn’t believe how old he looked because I thought he was pretending to be in his 30s or something. But he’s going to be 52!!!! Wow!

    I liked the lawyer guy the best

    Charleston looks GORGEOUS. I’ve been to Hilton head a couple of times but never hung out in charleston. I always forget about if there are 2 charlestons

    Anyhow I loved it. Have to read all the back recaps on it now.

    • Powell says:

      It’s a good show. I think the best reality show on Bravo right now. Although Million Dollar Listing is tops too.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Oooh Powell I’m excited ! Thanks 🙂
        I’m happy the men are handsome (yet jerks)

  21. ladebra says:

    Do you think it’s true?

  22. chismosa™ says:

    I wonder if this “bi€£h” in front of the child or referring to the child will be compared to the woman Morris was sneaking around with on BH–> Porsha

    LEG™®© says STFU in a children’s place tonight in front of her tiny daughter.

  23. SoutheastVA says:

    WHy can’t the comments on the RHOA Bravo cast blogs be viewed. Most of the comments must be Anit-Andy, Anti-Bravo and Anti-Kenya. That’s what I’m seeing on twitter. A writer for Jet magazine’s opinion section said that the fight was caused by the network and Andy for allowing Kenya’s bullying and that Porsha should seek the council of an employment lawyer if threatened with firing.

  24. NJBev says:

    Great re-cap Stars99!! loved it,
    thank you for taking the time, and
    putting the effort into it!

  25. NJBev says:

    Hope your day is as fun and
    entertaining as you are!!!!!!!!

  26. NJBev says:

    I have a question! I have a question!!!
    What is the legal amount a parent can give
    an adult child in $$ before it must be
    declared and/or taxes must be
    paid on it???????
    c’mon you genius’ – you know everything,
    don’t let me down now b/c I’m too damn
    lazy to look it up… 😉

  27. Oh, I said I would report back on Top Chef Canada… I like it a lot. The men seem more chauvanistic but maybe it is just hidden better in the ole USA. It is straight Top Chef, not too much crap. The “Padama” kinda grew on me…..the “Tom C” guy is no nonsense but I like him…. if you like what TC was in the beginning, this is it! And there is stuff they say that is all “Canadian” that I don’t know what they are talking about, lol AND….there was something else….OH, they really do “SPONSORSHIP”, lol, the time clock is the “FINISH” clock, like the dishwashing machine soap….they are very obvious with their sponsorship. I will continue watching!

    And at the magazine rack at the Target check out, word on the street is the Torri will “Never trust Dean again!!!”, lol, why are they everywhere???

  28. cusi77 says:

    Starzy, I can’t thank you enough for this fantastic Blog on OC!!! I haven’t watched (nor I will) but the Blog made me laugh to tears!!!! Superbe! Thank you!

  29. not THAT Jill says:

    Happy Birthday AZ-hope you had a great day!!
    Just wanted to say that I miss my 🎾🎾🎾🎾 matches with VV (even though I’m sure most of you are happy they are over!!) I can’t seem to care about the ATL HW-I don’t care about Kenya and her fake self and I don’t care about dumb Porsha…they should have set up a boxing ring for those silly ass women!!
    I do care a little about the OC messes-Tamra is set to go after Heather? How stupid! Did these women learn nothing from our reaction to this crap? Tamra is dumb-trying to act like she’s going to have a baby-with HER TIED TUBES!! Please…bye Felicia!! I kind of like the new chick cause she knows she’s nuts and that makes it more fun!!!
    I don’t care about Carole’s asst.-no one would even think to look at what he tweeted a month ago never mind a year ago if the whole Bravoholic thing didn’t happen-so I don’t care! I didn’t care about him before and I still feel the same!
    Thanks for the blogs…off to Trivia!!

  30. AZGirl says:

    Hey everyone! THANK YOU FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES!!!! Quiet day today. Still recovering from Easter. Mr. AZGirl and I are heading to the Grand Canyon this weekend to do some hiking around the rim. We will celebrate my birthday then.
    I am so behind on everything! EVEN GAME OF THRONES!!! Hopefully I will catch up. I do see from the comments that Vicki and Tamara are friends again and of course Vicki is still having issues with not being able to control her kids.
    Memo to Vicki: Your kids are adults. Move on and enjoy your life…(without Brooks).

  31. Happy Tuesday – been running around with work this week so will likely not pop back until weekend unless I can find the strength to watch NY tonight! Stay well.

  32. jezzibel says:

    I wonder if Vicki ditched Brookes for real or she is using the lawyer guy as her beard and is still seeing Brooks on the DL

    Starzy- my mom recently sold her property in Julian CA …best apple pie in the state

  33. Powell says:

    I’m watching bits of the ATL reunion. You all are right. NeNe just has an attitude w/every comment. She should have just skipped it.
