The Real Housewives of New York City – Ten Gallon Spats

Carole and Kristen are getting Brazilian waxes together because we haven’t seen that before on any of the other Housewives’ franchises.  Well, at least they’re not screaming and calling their lady parts cute nicknames.  Their conversation is about the rumors that were told about all of the women by Sonja’s facialist, the infamous Satako.   As we leave Carole with her legs in the air, Aviva and Ramona are at a different spa enjoying New York’s version of the Roman baths and sharing their dismay that the others want to go to Montana.  Aviva tells Ramona how she just found out that she has asthma – really, really bad asthma that is going to keep her making the trip.  Her doctor has made it clear that she’ll be better off in big skyscraper city over big sky country.   Aviva wants to go somewhere where she can show her fun side and insists she would never want to be a buzz kill.

Sonja is packing for the trip and finding the right panties for the occasion is essential.  She has panties for the Hamptons, for St. Tropez, for horseback riding and for a yacht off Monaco.   What she really needs  is a jar of Monkey Butt from Tractor Supply – the panties should be her second consideration. Aviva Drescher, Kristen Taekman

Ramona and Kristen are shopping for cowboy boots at a place called Space Cowboy, named after the owner who loves his moment on camera and wants to sell Ramona a pair of sexy chaps.  Aviva walks in dressed for a hoedown and the big asthma debate begins.  Kristen doesn’t believe that Aviva has asthma but Aviva has a letter from her doctor that says she does.  The letter was probably addressed to Bravo so that she could give them another excuse as to why she would be missing a group trip again.  Kristen doesn’t care about the letter; she’s carrying on as if she wants an independent medical exam and all but whips out her own spirometer to test Aviva’s lungs on the spot.  She’s sure that Aviva is making it all up just to get out of going with them.  Aviva doesn’t care for being called a liar and starts pulling all sorts of medications out of her purse and throwing them at Kristen, and then takes a hit off of her rescue inhaler, just to prove her point.  She really should learn how to use those things, they’re rather expensive.  Ramona is surprisingly quiet, noting only that it all may be a weird coincidence.

Kristen is also packing with the help of her kids who think she should carry a gun for her trip to the wild, wild, West.  Josh comes in and Kristen commences to tell him about Aviva’s asthma story.  He chuckles and says that they’ll probably see pictures of Aviva on a chair lift in Aspen, puffing on a cigarette.   Kristen also wants to know if Josh can take care of the kids while she’s gone.  He insists that they’ll be alright but he plans on dropping them off at her parents’ house in Connecticut so that he can hang out in the Hamptons with his friends.  He then tells her that he has to get back to the office, leaving her fuming.

Aviva talks to Reid about her new affliction and whether she should chance a trip to Montana.  He tells her that it would be irresponsible for her to go.  She then takes another puff from the inhaler in case we missed the first demonstration.

The group finally arrives on Montana and find that there’s a wheel chair reserved for Aviva at the airport.    Whether that was Bravo foolishness or Aviva foolishness really doesn’t matter – it was foolishness.  Ramona isn’t impressed with all of the stuffed animals on display and all of them wonder what they’ve gotten themselves into.   They arrive on the resort property and it looks a little desolate.  They enter the lobby and are greeted with Huckleberry base drinks.  A horse-drawn wagon takes them to their cabins.  LuAnn, Heather and Kristen are going to stay at the Antler’s Cabin and the Beaver Cabin will be home for Sonja, Carole and Ramona.  Both cabin are impressive and beautifully appointed.  Ramona opens some wine and the trip begins.Sonja Morgan

The first activity is wrangling cattle and Sonja is having some flashbacks to the last time she rode a horse and was thrown.  Ramona wants to trade in her horse for a different model because hers is grazing and refuses to move.  The horse must have gotten the memo.  She swaps horses with LuAnn who faced down a camel and Ramona suggests that the horse be sent to the glue factory.  Carole completely enjoys the perspective of the world you get from the back of a horse.  They all do pretty well with their tiny cattle drive, but, then again, the cowboys at the ranch were very helpful, not to mention very cute.Ramona Singer

After changing, the ladies are going to downtown Missoula for dinner.  The restaurant is rather interesting, with seating arranged around an indoor rodeo arena.  Ramona begins complaining how she can’t eat anything because of the manure smell and Sonja thinks that dinner is going to be one of the calves she just saw in the arena.  Because there has never been a single Housewives’ dinner that hasn’t been ruined, the conversation turns to the things Sonja’s facialist said, and, more importantly, to the fact that Sonja let her go on and on without shutting her down.  LuAnn is the one most upset and tells Sonja that she should have sent the woman home instead of allowing her to talk about her and the rest of the ladies.  LuAnn doesn’t like the fact that Satako said that she likes to dominate short French men in bed.  Kristen starts to giggle, saying that she found it funny.  Ramona says that if it isn’t true, why should anyone care.   Sonja’s explanation is that this sort of idle gossip has been going on for hundreds of centuries.  Hair stylists do it,  manicurists do it and dog groomers do it.  She doesn’t think it means anything.  LuAnn gets up and says that she’s going to bed.  What is really bothering her is that Sonja doesn’t even care she’s upset.LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan

We can only imagine what the ladies have in store for next week.  Perhaps Sonja will wrangle a cowboy, Satako will be offered a spinoff and we’ll find out that Aviva has an enlarged prostate gland.

S1E3  “Red, White And Blue-Blooded”

By Hydrangea Hussy

Last week was mostly about the ladies & their families.  We learned that Caprice is having two babies & not all of the ladies think that her media release with that news was appropriate.  This week is the 4th of July, so I expect there to be some Brit vs. American tension.

Juliet & Marissa are having cocktails.  Juliet is having the “Juliet spritzer,” which is white wine, soda & lemon.  Sounds kind of good!  Marissa tells Juliet about her impending British citizenship.  Sidenote: Marissa clarified, via Twitter this week, that she now has dual citizenship.  She describes the “life in the UK test,” which sounds kind of difficult.  Marissa is excited about her new citizenship, but she’s also excited about the 4th of July, which she’ll co-host with Juliet.  They are having a difference of opinion.  Marissa wants it to be nice, while Juliet is leaning toward tacky, lol.  All of the Brits are invited.  Caroline seems excited, but points out the irony of the situation – they’re celebrating the throwing out of the Brits while in England.

LOL S1E3_4Caprice’s dog has a problem eating his poo.  Her vet told her to put pineapple in his food to prevent this.  Gross!  Caprice isn’t sure that she’s ready for 2 babies if she can’t handle her dog.  I have felt that way many times!  Caprice’s publicist calls to talk to her about the Serpentine party coverage.  Despite being pregnant, Caprice’s image as a sex symbol is what built her career & she wants to maintain that.  I think she looks amazing for 7 months pregnant!  That may be why she was the first photo in the Daily Mail.

LOL S1E3_3Annabelle is visiting her grandmother & sister, Millie.  Her grandmother is graceful & charming!  They discuss a relative’s 21st birthday party & her grandmother comments that she’d love to be young again so she could go dancing.  So cute!  Annabelle’s family is aristocratic & her grandmother begins telling family stories about an affair that a relative had with a queen.  They were given their title by the Queen of Sweden after a member killed an Italian count that she had an issue with.  Annabelle prefers to think of herself as more rock & roll than posh.  She hopes to take after the good riders in her family & do well in the upcoming race.

LOL S1E3_2Caroline’s office is full of women.  Like Caprice, she’s building a brand & using social media to aid in projecting the image that she wants.  She seems to be tough on her employees, but they all appear to be having a good time.  I love an office where you can laugh with your boss.  An antique jewelry dealer has brought some items to show Caroline.  One of the pieces was worn by Kate Winslet at the Titanic premiere.  Wow, Caroline is correct when she says that she lives a charmed life!  But she is quick to point out that she has not accepted money from her parents since she was 17 & that she built her business on her own.  Her work ethic is very evident.  Caroline admits that she is more American than Brit, in that she likes the bling while the Brits don’t show off their wealth.

Annabelle visits an up & coming designer that she is mentoring.  Annabelle has a ton of experience in the fashion industry & I think it’s great that she wants to share that knowledge.  The designer is developing her new collection, which Annabelle sees as reminiscent of Alexander’s early collections.  What an amazing experience for a young designer – to have Annabelle helping with your collection & show.

LOL S1E3_7The 4th of July party is being held at Marissa’s restaurant, Bumpkin.  She & Matt are sampling the menu, which she wants to be American foods.  They’re having ribs, but they are too messy for the party.  Next up is a burger, which need to be shrunk down to sliders.  It was cool to see the two tasting & discussing the food.  They work together very well, which explains their success in business!  Matt is against the lobster roll, until he tries it.  He has to admit that it is wonderful.

It’s finally the 4th of July!  Marissa’s dress is so cute & festive!  They’re decorating outside with flags & bunting everywhere.  Marissa is very hands-on in the planning of the party.  It’s nice that her friends are so willing to support her one “American day” in the UK.  Juliet arrives a little early but after most of the work is done, just as Marissa predicted, lol.  I think we all have friends like that.  Caroline is getting ready at her office & explaining the 4th of July to her make-up artist.  This cracks me up!  He knows that it’s our Independence Day, but isn’t sure what the significance is.  Caroline explains that there will be lots of flag waving & excitement.

LOL S1E3_5Noelle arrives in a red, white & blue dress.  It’s the 4th anniversary of Marissa & Matt meeting Scot.  I can’t believe Marissa remembers that!  Noelle takes the opportunity to point out that they’ve been together 4 years & she still doesn’t have an 8.7 carat ring.  I can’t tell if she’s just nervous or really that materialistic.  Caroline arrives in red, white & blue as well.  Haha!  First words to Juliet – “Juliet, have you forgotten your trousers, or did you have a fight with a garden shear on the way here?”  Juliet points out that Caroline’s put-down is really a compliment.  Caroline later notes that she really likes Juliet because they can tease each other.  Annabelle wears all-black because the Brits are in mourning on the 4th.  Caprice hasn’t celebrated the 4th of July in over a decade because she has become more British than American after being in England for so long.  We also meet Julie Montagu for the first time, but don’t really to get to know much about her.  She is married to a friend of Annabelle & Caprice.

Julie & Annabelle are discussing the upcoming race.  Julie suggest power yoga to build upper body strength.  Juliet suggests some kind of dance-type workout that she did in LA.  Annabelle notes that Juliet seems to jump into any conversation without worrying if she’s interrupting.  Here comes the drama, as Juliet appears to go on & on.  Annabelle points out that she can barely get a word in & asks Juliet to slow it down.  Juliet finds Annabelle’s reserved nature to be rude.  Juliet is now pissed that Annabelle interrupted her, but didn’t she just interrupt Annabelle & Julie?

Marissa makes a quick thank-you speech & toast.  Overall, the party seems like a lot of fun.  She puts Juliet on the spot by announcing that she will sing our national anthem.  Juliet pretends to be shy, but you can tell she’s loving the attention.  She stands & sings with Marissa’s help.  Noelle thinks that the Brits are probably embarrassed for Juliet.  Annabelle is attempting to hide a smirk.  Juliet’s voice isn’t horrible, but she isn’t getting a record deal anytime soon.  Annabelle comments that she now knows the difference between Americans & Brits.  Everyone gets quiet.  Caprice points out that Annabelle is very reserved & isn’t used to so much exuberance.  Caroline finds it refreshing.

LOL S1E3_6Bo, a friend of Juliet & Marissa, arrives with gifts of undies.  Juliet immediately pulls them out & shows them off.  Annabelle is shocked!  Juliet is looking for someone to try them on & asks who has a big a**.  Ok, even I find that a little inappropriate.  Annabelle finds it very inappropriate & makes a quick exit.  Annabelle is outside, explaining to Caroline that she just can’t understand getting out undies at a dinner table.  Juliet is insulted by Annabelle’s departure & follows her out.  She goes on & on about how rude Annabelle was.  I found the departure a little abrupt, but she didn’t cause a big scene like Juliet did by following her out.

LOL S1E3_1Juliet goes back inside to get the support of the other ladies.  Caprice stands up for Annabelle, saying that she doesn’t usually react like that.  Juliet wants Caprice to stop defending Annabelle & says that it isn’t her business.  But didn’t Juliet run back to the group with her story & involve everyone?  Caprice goes after Annabelle, which Caroline finds ridiculous.  She points out that Juliet is new to England & doesn’t know the proper etiquette yet.  I think that it was nice for Caprice to check on her friend.  When Caprice goes back inside, Juliet is still talking about it.  She again tells Juliet that Annabelle is very private & doesn’t react well to Juliet’s dominant personality.  Caroline doesn’t know why Caprice is involved & Caprice doesn’t understand why Caroline didn’t defend her friend.


Happy Birthday

Cristina aka djprincessc

      TexasTart I’m listening to it know. SHMS plays in my area WHUR in DC. It’s not that very exciting w/Kandi. She’s talked about The Old Lady Gang. Saying we don’t get to see the moments that are funny and make her laugh. She hasn’t said anything about how her mom treats or treated Todd. I’ve been away from my desk so I could have missed something. She was good giving callers advice on getting more in the music biz.

  2. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Happy Birthday Cristina! 😀

  3. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s Hump Day eve. I hope you all have a great day. 🌅

    • ladebra says:

      Oh gosh, please tell me it’s Wednesday !😛😜😋

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Hump Day salutations to all! More tornadoes in the state last night, only 40 miles from the previous day. Those people must be shell-shocked by now. Two deaths were reported from the Tuesday storms; a five year old girl and a 72 year old man who happened to be a good friend of my brother’s. They were golf buddies for the past several years. He got caught in the storm while driving. He got out of his vehicle to take cover and the vehicle was lifted and dropped on him. My brother called him a gentle man. Very sad.

  4. Powell says:

    From what I watched Ramona and Kristen were getting on my nerves. And LOL at Leg’s new phobia asthma. Kristen wasn’t having it. And the doc note? Showing it to Kristen like she was her teacher or boss. Funny how she had that doc note so handy. 😀

    • T-Rex says:

      Powell, do we know if FauxLegViva is a cigarette smoker? We know that Lu-Man smokes like a chimney. I have looked up adult onset Asthma and it’s pretty rare unless you are exposed to toxins on a regular basis, like at a job around chemicals, but smoking is another cause as is exposure to Mold. Most times Allergies are misdiagnosed as Asthma. Either way FauxLegVIva is the NY Ho-wives hypochondriac. That woman has more fake phobias which conveniently come and go as she needs them or doesn’t

      • PJ says:

        My husband has asthma, asthma is caused by allergies. My husband’s asthma is considered adult onset and he is not a smoker nor has he ever been one, although his doctor thinks that he possibly has had undiagnosed asthma all his life. Aside from times when his asthma has been out of control, and out of control asthma can be life threatening, asthma has never stopped my husband from doing anything including traveling. Aviva certainly does not appear to be in any distress from asthma. But then again in my opinion Aviva is nuts and I am not interested in her participation on this show. The rest of the cast should be thrilled that Aviva can’t go on the trips.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          My brother had asthma his entire life so I know what distressed breathing looks like and Aviva doesn’t have it. Of course, we only see snippets of her life, but she doesn’t look like she’s suffering from anything other that self-importance.

          • PJ says:

            That and self righteousness which if you read her blog comes across pretty clearly.

          • Powell says:

            Husker Leg talks and argues so much w/the ladies. How in the shell can she have asthma? You need a lot of air in your lungs to argue like she does. 😉

            • PJ says:

              My husband has trouble reading out loud for any length of time without needing a break, and that’s in a normal tone of voice without all the hysterics and dramatics. I don’t know how Aviva manages all the yelling and arguing she engages in if has moderate to severe asthma.

        • T-Rex says:

          PJ thanks, I was looking only at one website should have looked at a couple, allergies most certainly seemed to be the Number One reason for adult onset Asthma, hopefully it doesn’t affect your husband too much. FauxLegViva seems to peruse the WebMD website and pick the “ailment dujour” and then “runs” with it. I hope this is her last season on this show, she needs to take her leg and go play in someone else’s sandbox. Although I think that this is already in the works, the fact that she has been pretty much nothing more than a “friend” of the Ho-wives by her appearances, non-appearances, and she was left out of some of the marketing photos speak volumes

          • PJ says:

            My husband is fine now but has been in very serious crisis from asthma so to me it’s an insult that someone would claim to have this just for attention, if they really don’t. I don’t hear the characteristic wheezing coming from Aviva if her asthma is so bad and she can’t breath there should be at least some wheezing and she should be getting out of breath from all her yelling. I hate to doubt someone over something so serious but Aviva is a very difficult person to have any sympathy for. I would like to see her gone from this show as well, her brand of crazy is too much for me. This Is the last Housewife show that I’ve been watching and Aviva is ruining it for me.

          • Powell says:

            Haha T-Rec. I bet she does peruse WebMD. 😉

        • Powell says:

          PJ you made me laugh I started coughing. “Then again in my opinion Aviva is just and I am not interested in her participation on this show.” That was good. 😀

      • Powell says:

        I don’t know if she smokes or had in the past. I don’t believe she has asthma.

  5. ladebra says:

    I’m just watching NY now. Classic Ramona and Sonja … the cowboy hats 😜 the look on the hat ladies face is priceless. Good laugh to start the day.

  6. Sam says:

    My youngest son and I both use inhalers for asthma and had quite a laugh together over how Aviva was fake-using hers. She was doing it all wrong, in a way that would have delivered the meds to her mouth instead of her lungs. And given how awful that would have been, we believe her inhaler was an actor’s version with nothing in it.

    Also, in her blog she says that her new doctor is also Andy Cohen’s doctor, which to me makes it even more likely the asthma thing was pure theatrics.

    • PJ says:

      I thought the same thing. When my husband uses his inhaler he breathes it in deeply, I didn’t see Aviva doing that.

      • Sam says:

        Exactly. And you have to exhale completely first, emptying your lungs before deeply inhaling the meds.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I was thinking that too ^^^^^^

        From what I’ve seen of inhalers on tv shows and stuff

    • Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

      yes! anyone who actually uses an inhaler could see that it was bizarre the way she was using it. Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaker!

  7. jezzibel says:

    I’m not getting how a licensed medical professional would think it would be better for a patient with asthma(suspect) to stay in a city with all those emissions and smog vs going out to the big open country with clean air. I would have thought that a competent dr. would be all over sending his/her patient to breath clean country air.

  8. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Empress…the last line of your blog….I’m dying!!! Too friggen funny!!! Great blog Empress!!!!

  9. Powell says:

    Kandi said Todd is producing R&B Divas, a new city coming up on BET.

  10. AZGirl says:

    Happy Birthday Christina! “Aviva has a enlarged prostate” HA! Empress pure genius.

  11. Cartwheels says:


    Reality Tea is or used to be a strong hold of Lisa stans/fans/lovers , yet based on the comments she is not fairing pretty well on this issue. You should have settle Lisa, 300 dollars would have saved you a world of trouble.

    • PJ says:

      I have long felt that beneath the fabulous veneer was a whole lot of nasty. I believe you don’t destroy evidence for no reason, if this tape proved the waitress was not telling the truth you can bet the tape would have been played in court. Also Lisa tweeted that her manager had been found innocent, but apparently he was not found innocent but rather he was not held accountable because the claim against him could not be proved, that is really quite different from being found innocent. The jury obviously believed the waitress and wanted to send a message. This is what bothers me about Madam Vanderfabulous she in my opinion does not tell the truth but people believe her anyway, at least it seems from the comments left on Reality Tea that people are starting to peer beneath the veneer. I just wonder considering attorney fees and all how much this case will cost when all is said and done.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      The amount of negative comments I have seen directed at Vanderfanfavorite over this whole case is shocking!!!! I’m sure the twitter pity party tour will now have to be extended!!

  12. HuskerHuny says:

    I’m officially over Ramona and Sonja for good. They have definitely derailed and crashed. They make middle age look very desperate. That ranch looked amazing and the scenery – spectacular! Ramona’s and Sonja’s entertainment is alcohol-driven and it’s starting to show on them physically. Realizing that both of them are going through quite trying issues, they needed this kind of getaway to calm themselves and get away from their reality and all they do is complain. To use their words, they are a buzz kill. Take them to the curb Bravo.

    • mrs peabody says:

      Given Ramona grew up away from the city I was surprised at her reaction. She reacted like a spoiled city girl (which I guess she has become over the years) rather than someone who got her start in life in a more rural area (at least I’m guessing it was based on her reaction to the last time she was in the woods). I’d think they’d enjoy the time away from all the stresses of their daily lives and just relax. Even Luman was enjoying it.

    • Sus says:

      I so agree. I’ve been over Sonja for a few seasons now. Maybe from her first appearance! Ramona is boring. The Hamptons and Manhattan are not the only interesting places in the world. I like seeing the Housewives out of their element. It’s interesting. It’s not like they have to spend 6 months somewhere. Less than a week and they can’t get with the program because wine isn’t the main event.

  13. MelTheHound says:

    I am betting Adiva’s inhaler was a placebo. Fake.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Everything about Aviva is fake – and I’m just not talking about her leg. She’s in need of some psycho-therapy. Her father, and maybe even her mother, did her more damage than that accident ever did.

      • mrs peabody says:

        Kind of makes you wonder just what was going on in that house as she was growing up. She sure seems damaged to me, either that or a great actress.

        • MelTheHound says:

          She probably knows more about Chiclet George’s habits from experience. Either physical or visual..

    • PJ says:

      What I would like to know is how does her doctor know what Aviva is allergic to, you have to have allergy tests to know that and she doesn’t mention being tested. Just sayin.

    • MelTheHound says:

      I bet she just didn’t want to do her job. Hopefully it’s time to break out the minus Aviva group shot again..

  14. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Happy Birthday Cristina!!!

  15. mrs peabody says:

    I wish Ramona and Sonja would update their opening tag lines. They make them seem like they can’t move past their glory days. Just sayin……….move on ladies, not cute anymore.

    • PJ says:

      It looks to me like Ramon’s has become chubby especially in the tummy area, could all that wine be a contributing factor?

      • Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

        More like menopause PJ.

        • PJ says:

          At Ramona’s age shouldn’t she be pretty much done with menopause?

          • Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

            Not necessarily. Not everybody reaches menarche at the same time either.

          • mrs peabody says:

            I thought she was going through it a couple of years ago which even then I was surprised as she was well into her 50’s at that time. I’ve noticed the change in her stomach area too, looks like the wine is catching up with her. I really hate to see her falling apart like this.

      • Even after menopause, you can still be left with some not so welcome changes in your body. One of them is redistribution of weight where it settles around the abdomen and it’s difficult, almost impossible, to get rid of. Menopot:.
        A popular term for a layer of fat around the abdomen—in the ‘pot belly’ region, hence the name—that some women develop after going through menopause

    Happy Birthday Christina!

    New blog on this wonderful little island we are staying on – I love love love this place …http://wp.me/p4kxEH-fd

  17. Powell says:

    Empress I missed parts of Leg telling of her new affliction and her puffs off her inhaler. You have me cracking up because I’m picturing her taking hits. Boy oh boy is this new phobia going to be a hit at the reunion. I don’t know how Leg gets out of bed every day.💉 💊 😷

  18. Powell says:

    Empress of we find out Leg has an enlarged prostate gland I’m through. Lol. 😉

  19. boston02127 says:

    Jill…….Thx for the answer about the sign in Tamra’s kitchen. I’m just getting caught up with all the blogs & posts. I’ve been so sick since Tuesday night and fell behind. 😦

    • boston02127 says:

      ^^^^^^^^ Oops …. I meant Monday night. Maybe I’m delirious too???? Actually, I feel a lot better and have eaten.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Sorry to here you weren’t feeling well Boston-take care of yourself and get better quick!!!

        • boston02127 says:

          Thx Jill. I’m at the end of whatever I had. I’m still in my jams just relaxing today.

          About the sign in T’s kitchen. I can’t believe she has that in her house and has kids.
          Also, I’d love to know what her (new) custody battle is all about.

          • mrs peabody says:

            yea I would to, I wonder if he wants full custody. They already share

            • ladebra says:

              I could be making this up, but didn’t the oldest girl want to live with the Dad? And not see Tammy Sue so much? I think it was sunthin about the oldest daughter.

            • Powell says:

              Maybe 4 or 5 blogs back someone posted Tamra’s tweets and an article or two. Simon wants full custody. The oldest Sydney, I think she’s the oldest already moved w/him.

    • Powell says:

      You all better? BIG hugs.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Boston sorry meant to mention hope you’re feeling better. 😦

  20. boston02127 says:

    Thanks for the great blogs.

  21. Limespider says:

    Perhaps Avivachondriac sought the doctor’s note to avoid being further punished by Bravo for not abiding by her contract. She was persona non grata for three glorious episodes then. It was an added bonus for Aviva that she could fling the doctor’s note at Kristen to say “see, I really am sick.”

  22. Austin says:

    Aviva made it seem in her blog that Kristen had given her some sort of heads up that she would expect a doctor’s note if Aviva couldn’t go, so I assume that’s why Aviva had it at the ready. I am no fan of Aviva – at all – but I don’t understand who the hell airhead Kristen thinks she is that Aviva should have to provide her with any justification whatsoever. They seem to all dislike Aviva intensely, which she’s given some of them good reason for, so why on earth wouldn’t they just be happy she wasn’t coming, no matter what the circumstances? I think they were disappointed that Aviva wasn’t coming to provide the drama, so LuMan has to do it with her fake outrage over the facialist’s remarks.

      Like I’ve said about Kristen I don’t like her, she doesn’t know her place. Why is it up to the new Chin to make such demands? Why didn’t she stay home and take care of her kids since she doesn’t think her husband is capable of doing it.

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        Hi Mrs Peobody, I don’t like Kristen either. Too whiney and bitchy for me. She’s very quick to insert herself into the drama.

        • T-Rex says:

          Regarding Kristen lets not forget that she claims to be BFF’s with THE-LIAR-SUPREME-SLUTBAG-MORON-STFUBrandi, and I am sure that THE-LIAR-SUPREME-SLUTBAG-MORON-STFUBrandi has given her stupid “ideas” on how to bring the drama! Kristen isn’t all that bright, IMO and probably has taken cues from her idiot BFF. All, I can say is for her to look at who she is taking those cues from because she will be right there with her, no money, no husband and her kids half the time as her hubby goes on to find a new Mrs to spend his dough.

      • PJ says:

        Know her place? What is her place?

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          I think she’s referring to the fact that Kristen is new and should tread lightly. And she should know the pecking order by now. Ha!

          • PJ says:

            I honestly don’t see any reason for Kristen to tread lightly no one else does and it’s her job to make drama.

          • chismosa™ says:

            I fully am on board with HOUSEWIVES pecking order. 🙋👍

            ((All bow down to Ramona like her or hate her))

    • Exit4 says:

      At this point I think we know these trips are all production planned. They have to be. I guess this is “Kristen’s” trip. I seriously doubt she chose the destination. I’m sure you can opt out of a trip if you have to, but in order to make drama it has to appear otherwise. Kristen did her job in complaining about aviva not going-she just did it badly.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Hi Austin, I don’t think LuLu’s anger over the facialist’s remarks were fake. But I do think the real reason she was angry is because she was cheating on Jacques and she probably afraid of what would come out.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      I was thinking the same way, Austin. Who the hell does Kristen think she is to to confront and allege that Aviva is lying? Plus, the whole group dislikes her anyway. Didn’t we see the next scene with Carole and Heather talking shit about Aviva?

    • PJ says:

      I don’t believe Aviva, if Kristen said that wanted a doctors note she was kidding and of course Aviva would take it to the most dramatic level possible. But I have to say who does that–what adult produces a doctors note–only someone who wants to create maximum drama in my opinion.

      • Austin says:

        Uh, I’ve watched it a number of times and Kristen wasn’t kidding. No love for Aviva here whatsoever, but Kristen wasn’t kidding and she lent plenty of her own unnecessary drama to the situation, IMO.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Also kristen yells at HOLLA that she emasculates her husband and to “own it!”

  23. Exit4 says:

    My boyfriend from high schools older sister lived in Missoula montana. She was the type, outdoorsy and such. But Missoula is a college town and even though it’s totally different then NY-it’s not just cattle and cowboys! There’s populated areas with malls and stores and bars and restaurants like anywhere else! She was a teacher-but her husband had a cool job-he was a firefighter who jumped out of airplanes!

  24. VV™ says:

    Too many Ladies of London. I cant keep them straight. The contrast of cultures, the aristocratic vs commoner, old money vs new money is interesting to me. I’m quietly watching…. I don’t really care too much for any of them but their interactions interest me. Great blogs ladies.

  25. shamrockblonde says:

    *hugs Boston really hard* sorry you were not feeling well, but glad that you are feeling better now! – be good to you!

    I am in love with the PC – those three guys crack me up – so do the older ladies, the couple with their son the father with the daughters and the family with two sons in between the parents watching the show – oh heck all of them! I actually was laughing out loud last night and one of the twins heard me – I could hear talking to her sister saying “I don’t know what she is watching, but it can’t be NY (housewives) – she yells at that one” –

    and then came Aviva……….the dark cloud – do you think that the doctor who wrote the note knew full well that Aviva did not have asthma and wrote the script because he knows she is a hypocondriac and simply did not wish to deal with her nonsense? I don’t get what the big deal is with these women – all of them not just NY – if you do not wish to go, JUST SAY SO!! why all the drama as to why?? – oh wait…….

    quick phone convo with my husband – I’m at work – he is home with the girls

    I had asked to get water and detergent as we were out of both

    him – I got the water and the Ipods, they are in the kitchen
    me – the Ipods?
    him – yeah – you asked me to get it along with the water
    me – I asked you get detergent, not Ipods…
    him – that’s what the detergent is in – those packet Ipod pod things
    I can hear the twins behind him asking who the Ipods are for and him answering that they are for the house – then I could hear the girls asking where they were – he must have pointed to the detergent becuase a second later I could hear hysterical laughter
    me – now also laughing – they are not called Ipods babe – packets maybe, pods mabye but Ipods definitely do not go in the washer – by now I’m laughing too
    him – okay smarty pants – I’ll let you handle the wash then!

    he makes me laugh so hard sometimes!

    • T-Rex says:

      Shamrock, love your postings about your convo’s with your family they are always so much fun

    • boston02127 says:

      TY shamrockblonde

      Are your twins identical or fraternal?

      • shamrockblonde says:

        they are identical – my husband still to this day has a hard time telling them apart – they will be 15 in August and I would be very rich if I had a dime for every time I have heard him say “which one are you?”

        you will look great whatever you choose but I would wear a skirt and a nice top – no jeans and good luck!!

        *hugs boston really hard again* just cuz

        • HuskerHuny says:

          Hey Shamrock – I also have identical twin girls who will soon be 30 (good Lord, 30?!?) Members of my family still cannot tell them apart. They no longer look that much alike and stopped dressing alike in the 3rd grade. One lives in Omaha and the other in Kansas City and now everyone asks ‘who lives where?’ I guess there will always be questions.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            My best friend has identical twin girls. I have watched them since they were born-they are now 8 and Maggie (who is the same age as they are) can tell them apart from the back!! Everyone is always asking them “which one are you” and they think it’s hysterical and try to “fool” people by saying the wrong name…I’m on to them b/c I know who is who!!

          • shamrockblonde says:

            HH! wow 30! twins are so amazing – we would always dress the girls differently – sometimes same outfit one in purple one in pink or blue – in the beginning of each school year so that the teachers could tell them apart, but until they were in about 4th or 5th grade they could not wait to dress the same – after that they started changing it up but to this day every so often they dress alike – they share a bedroom, but very often I will find them asleep in the same bed when I go to wake them up in the morning – other times in their respective beds but asleep in the exact same position – right down to the curved finger on their right hands – kiss your girls for me! bet they are beautiful!!

        • Orson says:

          A friend of mine had twins. As they became toddlers, they began talking to each other in baby babble. She said they seemed to understand each other and they were probably complaining about their mommy.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Oh my gosh you and Husker ! So lucky ! I dream of twin girls – they run so SO much in my family but I know it’s a genetic anomaly / fluke to have them.

          So sweet! All good health to them all ❤

  26. boston02127 says:

    I have a question. I am going to a job fair on Friday. It’s being held at a nice hotel. Should I dress up (skirt or dress) or just go casual?

    • Exit4 says:

      Dress up. Bring resumes. Treat it like an actual job interview because that’s their first impression and looking the part will give you a leg up! Good luck!!!!

    • lillybee says:

      Definitely dress up. I believe the rule is to dress up for the position you want.

    • BB says:

      Dress up like you are going on a serious job interview.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      What the ladies said below. Good luck and hope you’re feeling better.

    • MelTheHound says:

      These job fairs are like pre-screen interviews. The difference is you can hand somebody your resume directly to a real person rather than send it in and hope someone calls. At the very least, you’ll know someone put their hands on it. Go as you would for a regular interview, if you can, have some idea where you’d like to end up so you can target that company.

    • Powell says:

      Also if you can find out beforehand the employers go to their website and do internet searches and find out some info on them. Something key like they are developing a new product, they saved x amount of income doing XYZ, they are entering a new market. Use this same info when you go on formal interviews too.

    • Powell says:

      Good luck. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Dress for the job you want. Or higher.

      Always better to be dressed too much than too little.

      Good luck!

  27. lillybee says:

    Does anyone besides myself think that Aviva may have a touch of Munchausen.

    • mrs peabody says:

      Never thought of it but maybe. I’ve always associated it with a mom and a sick child in the hospital. I guess I watch to many lifetime tv shows.

    • I hadn’t thought of it either. I found this at Wikipedia. The description for those at risk is interesting.

    • Powell says:

      Lillybee I wouldn’t be surprised. She can’t use her “ailments” and “phobias” she used last season so she’s making up new ones. Reed was sitting there going along w/her “asthma”. Kristen was all up in arms. She had Ramona listening to her. Her doc gives her a “medical excuse” like she needs to give it to her boss or a teacher. Yes she likes the attention.

    • chismosa™ says:

      whenever they mentioned her cries for attention that’s all I think.

      At least it’s better than BY PROXY

    • chismosa™ says:

      It makes me think maybe she’s trying to relive — the cycle of the attention she may have received back when her horrible accident happened during childhood.

      The way an abused child abuses, an abused girl looks for an abuser/ absentee father >>> absentee partner, etc, Jung, Freud, yada yada blah blah

      • mrs peabody says:

        I think you are spot on, she probably loved all the attention she rec’d and has been trying to relive it all along.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Yeah she probably doesn’t even realize she’s doing that.

          In a sense, poor Aviva ….. But – for lack of self awareness – shame on Aviva

    Jill Zarin returning to reality TV; foreshadows return to ‘RHONY’ to save show?

    Ever since she was dropped from “The Real Housewives of New York City,” Jill Zarin has stayed in the limelight through guest appearances. She appeared on Oprah’s “Where Are They Now” series and even sat down with Andy Cohen on his “Watch What Happens Live.” Fans will once again see her on TV this summer.

    On Monday, June 16, Naughty But Nice Rob reported that Jill will appear on ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap.” Filming for the episode, which will air on Tuesday, July 15, is already finished. The person with whom she swapped lives with is Jenna Von Oy.

    According to one TV insider, the episode will be full of drama. For those who don’t know, Jenna Von Oy is an actress, best known for her work as Six LeMeure on “Blossom” and as Stevie Van Lowe on “The Parkers.” She is currently married to a computer data consultant, with whom she had a daughter with in 2012. Very likely, viewers will see a lot of drama resulting from Jill, who was very vocal about her parenting ways during her time as a New York City housewife, not agreeing with how Von Oy and her husband raise their child.

    The TV insider predicted that if Jill’s “Celebrity Wife Swap” episode does well in the ratings game, she’ll get more opportunities. One opportunity may be the chance to return to “The Real Housewives of New York City,” since the show isn’t bringing in the viewers that it used to when Jill was on the show.

    This isn’t the first time that there have been mumblings about Jill Zarin being a New York City housewife again. In late March, Aviva Drescher even went on a radio show and claimed that Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill were going to be fired and replaced with Bethenny Frankel and Jill. However, it doesn’t seem as if that’s happening. When confronted with Aviva’s claim by Carole, Andy Cohen didn’t confirm it but rather expressed shock and surprise.


    • Exit4 says:

      Alex McCord does a blog everyday on stir.com. They’re pretty good sometimes. Today she talked about NY and that situation and she also touches on why and how the decisions are made about what housewives to keep and who to her rid of. It’s all about $$$$. Ratings have something to do with it, but it’s budget. She never mentioned fan feedback. Hmmm.

      If they could get Jill back on the cheap and lose a Ramona who costs a lot-they’ll do it. Because people, especially people who hate her, will tune in in a NY minute!

      • chismosa™ says:

        Interesting. I thought I saw something online saying it was leaked how much Sonja makes per season and it’s a LOTTTT

        (Remember she was a “legit” ny social when she got cast…{no matter humble beginnings or how she got there})

        Andy is trying SO hard to make NY seem successful and fun! I don’t know ……

      • Powell says:

        If JZ is back I’m out. Add NY to NJ and those will be the two I don’t watch. I’ll just enjoy the blogs.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Hey Boston it’s been AGES! Since we’ve gotten a JZ newsletter from you!

      Thanks for this.
      I WILL tune in. Not sure about the choice of swap. I wish it was some super conservative – down home woman who doesn’t boss everyone around.

    • T-Rex says:

      WOW what a THELunaticZarin spin this has, and I am sure she was the one to bring them this story. MzAndy is NEVER going to bring her back, that bridge is burnt, buried and cemented over why doesn’t she get that through her LUNATIC Brain. The WWHL debacle and the interviews where she had interns(or PR or whomever was shilling for her back then), use MzAndy’s connections to get her interviews WITHOUT his knowledge nor consent are clearly verboten in the Media world, and he will never forget about what she did. He would have Bethenny back on in a HOT MINUTE! He would love it if Bethenny came back, he would have his two great loves Carole and Bethenny on the same show. I love the FauxLegHypochondriacViva’s claim, shows just how OUT of the loop she really is, and will probably be the next HO-wife casualty of the Firing kind. I don’t think she will be back next season, if there is one. Oh, and what year is it Celebrity Wife Swap? Seriously, that show has some of the lowest ratings of any TV show and they don’t hardly pay either, people go on the show for the notoriety.

    • Powell says:

      So JZ is going to teach Jenna and her husband how to shame your child on national tv and how to tell everyone where their child is attending college.

      • T-Rex says:

        What I can’t figure out is why they would have these folks doing the Swap? TheLUNATICZarin could be a grandmother to this child, she hasn’t had a baby in her home for 20 years, so what could she possibly impart to this Jenna VonOy? I guess that the show is running out of bottom of the barrel folks and they could only scrape these two out of it, again could not see anything that either could remotely bring to one another. I guess Jenna can learn out to look the other way while her husband cheats, something I guess for her to look forward to? Oh she can also learn how to get her nose cleaned out I guess(barf!) She can also learn what it’s like for your husband’s family to basically shun you because they can’t stand you and can’t stand the fact that you are blowing all of her husband’s money on stupid, frivolous things to try and become famous. Jenna can also learn what not to do to try and keep her name in the spotlight. I see TheLUNATICZarin learning nothing, cause she will tell you she already “knows it all”. So those two viewers that tune in can watch her tell this Jenna’s husband all the things that they are doing wrong in her crass, annoying voice. I guess we can watch to see how long it takes for his ears to bleed from all that annoyance.

  31. boston02127 says:

    Another question. I’ll hog this blog and not bother anyone tomorrow. (sorry)

    About the job fair, would it be good or bad to include my grades and GPA since I don’t have a very large working reference page.

    • lillybee says:

      I am not sure about the grades but it might be a good idea to include any courses that you took that would help you on the job.

    • Exit4 says:

      Include your GPA if it’s 3.0 or above. If you graduated with honors (magna, summa, cum laude) definitely include that. Plus any other honors or awards you’ve received. Even small ones. Include anything you’ve been recognized for (a published article or something in your community). Even if you did volunteer work-include that if your work history is light. Any skills you have, especially on the computer-maybe not the witty housewives captions you do though lol! You never know if you’ll run across a Jill fan! 🙂

      Like Mel said, this is a pre-screening. You’re young and just out of school-a willingness to learn whatever you need to learn is the key. Good luck!!!! 🙂

      • chismosa™ says:

        Computer skills- a MUST. Re: grades, I agree on only if you were superlative in grades. Any clubs and extra organizations- yes – if they apply to what you’re going for or even not. I read HR articles all the time saying companies like to see what personal interests candidates have.

        Why not say you take part in a Jill Zarin fan newsletter and blog site? How much of an inspiration she’s been for you?
        😹 🌯

    • MelTheHound says:

      Wisdom when I graduated from college, Include GPA on the resume if it’s warranted. Then, it was 3.0 or better.. “Graduated from XYZ University;GPA 3.25”

      We’re all hoping the best for you, ask all the questions you want…

    • Exit4 says:

      One thing to keep in mind as well…I don’t know what your major was, but if it’s not super specific (like engineering) don’t pigeon hole yourself into a specific thing right now. One mistake a lot of new grads make is they pass by something that isn’t “related” when in reality, it’s more about being educated then what your major was. If that makes any sense? Be open to anything (within reason) employers don’t always care. I say this from experience

    • Veena (NMD) says:

    I’m sorry. I’m just reading the blog and commenting and haven’t said good morning. Crazy weather last night. A lightening and thunderstorm but no rain.

      From what I can tell, it was a quiet night last night as far as tornadoes go, but central South Dakota got them instead. It’s just miserably hot and humid now through the weekend. Making our annual fireworks trip to Missouri on Saturday. It’s our 30th year; I remember because I was pregnant with my twins the first time we went. Have a great Thursday Powell and to everyone else!

    • T-Rex says:

      On a side note, I asked my cousin, the lawyer, about the damages and an appeal, etc. She said that almost 99.9% of punitive damages are appealed, and that in most cases they settle for less than half the original damages, in some cases they settle for even far less than half.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I think the fact that the other manager testified that Ken watched video of the guy actually grabbing the girl and still didn’t do anything about it will not help with the appeal-never mind the fact that the video was erased.

        • VV™ says:

          Where is the link or a copy of the transcript of Andrew Morrison’s Deposotion? My understanding is that several blogs have been written using “sources said”.
          I am surprised Bustillos lawyers didn’t make a deal of this allegedly destruction of evidence.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I read the transcript on Tamara’s blog.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I haven’t seen any other blogs write about the case except to take what they got from TMZ and they didn’t say anything about the video-it seems that this Vandermess isn’t very newsworthy for some reason.

            • VV™ says:

              I can’t find the docs on that blog. I can’t. Somebody please post the link.

              Other blogs would be #1 Lisa basher and Bernie’s best buddy Tommy Lightfoot Garrett blog at Highlight Hollywood.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                The Lisa bashing blog as you like to refer to it as did not write a blog about this-they simply took what TMZ wrote and used that. I don’t know who tommy light foot is and have never heard of his blog-Tamara has 2 blogs about the case-the second one has the depo of the manager.

                • PJ says:

                  I was not aware that there were actual Lisa bashing blogs. Before this court case most of the things I saw written about Lisa could not be considered bashing and publishing court documents is not bashing. People will have negative opinions when they perceive that someone they admired has been double dealing.

  33. BB says:

    They pretty much killed RHONY when they fired Jill, Alex and Kelly. There, I said it. Of course, ALL things housewives have pretty much run out of steam by now, with the exception of Atlanta. Still can’t figure out why that one still gets such high ratings – comparatively. Oh, well.

    • T-Rex says:

      That’s why I love this place so many different opinions! To me, when Bethenny left it was a huge blow to the show. I am sad that Silex is gone, but only the Alex portion, I could not STAND Simon being the extra Ho-Wife, and unfortunately, in my opinion, this is why she was dropped. I think had Bethenny stayed and Silex stayed with the addition of Carole, HeatherTummyYummy added to the mix, the ratings and show would have been fine. In MY opinion only, TheLunaticzarin and KrazyforCocopuffsandJellyBeansKelly did nothing for the ratings.

      • Exit4 says:

        I agree with BB about firing Jill. Compared to aviva-you could at least love to hate her! Alex was good too-Simon not so much! I liked Beth on NYHW-but after she left-too much Bethenny isn’t a good thing.

        I would love Heather, kristen and Carole with Jill, Bethenny and Alex. And Luann in the “friend” role. That would be a classic combo! It’ll never happen, Bethenny doesn’t need it and Jill and Alex aren’t on Andy’s good side. Although, bad feelings could be out aside if it means ratings. Ratings=money. But they’d have to limit Simon!

        • T-Rex says:

          Exit, I think MzAndy knew that if he kept Alex then it would mean Simon too, and they just said f**k it we don’t want both. I think Alex has said previously she wouldn’t do the show if Simon weren’t included, don’t put that line in the sand if you really want to keep your job! I really do think they would have kept Alex if they had agreed to NO SIMON. I said earlier that the bridge for TheLunaticZarin and Bravo is Broken, burned, buried and cemented over, she did WAY to many things since her firing that MzAndy will never forget nor forgive, using his name(without his permission) to try to wrangle interviews, then taping a show you clearly shouldn’t have, were huge NO NO’s. She probably had a chance to come back in the beginning but she BLEW it big time with her behind the scenes shenanigans. She is her own worst enemy, and personally I don’t think it would be a good show with her, and I know a lot of folks think that way too. I love that we all have the different opinions here though. I would absolutely boycott if she were ever on the show again, I pretty much boycott anything she is involved with.

            I’d watch if Jill was on. And if it was terrible I’d quit. Sort of like I’ve done with BH with Brandi. I’m not even going to bother next season.

            Im going to hold strong the rest of this season with NY but without a cast change I’m out.

            Nj is the last wife standing! And I loved the preview-I think I’m going to live this season!

          • Powell says:

            T-Rex I’ll say it again. If Jill came back I would be out. 🙂

      • Powell says:

        T-Rex I think your list of HWs would have been ratings gold. I think that’s the reason why Alex was fired too. I think they should have told Simon he had to be a real behind your wife husband. I know S1/2 Alex was adamant that she wanted Simon to be w/her all the time I think she was finally into her own and would have agreed.

        • Exit4 says:

          I’m crazy enough to watch Jill, Powell! But I didn’t hate her as much as others. I always thought Jill hate was proportional to Bethenny love. As for Alex, even though she clung to Simon less as time went on-she’d never do the show without him. She’s strong enough-but I get the impression that Simon would create a holy stink and not allow it. Or make her life miserable over it. He’s the larger fame whore in that duo IMHO.

      • Austin says:

        I agree with that analysis. It was actually uncomfortable. . . make that downright painful. . . to watch Kelly for me.

    • Exit4 says:

      I think Atlanta does well because they have a large African American audience. Shows with women of color are still underrepresented and the viewers are loyal. Also, Atlanta isn’t as insane as the other shows. There’s drama, but even when it gets ugly they leave it on the screen. It’s not like the other shows where it never stops even when the cameras stop rolling. The other shows carry an air of negativity between seasons and it’s overkill. You get bored of them. Atlanta is quiet and I’ve also noticed that Atlanta doesn’t engage much with fans. They don’t fight with them, they don’t have a lot of side crap to promote-it’s really more like a scripted series as opposed to a never ending saga.

    • Powell says:

      I only wanted Jill and Kelly gone. But oh well. Maybe ATL gets more viewers from the African-American community vs NY getting viewers from the Upper East side sect. IDK. Just a guess.

        I can’t WAIT for Game of Crowns. Hot mess, coming through. !

        Even moreso than (what I feel)– NJ -will be not great.

    I wonder how Boston is doing at the job fair. You all gave her great advice. Hope she gets an interview.
    I guess TMZ had Joe’s dad’s death story wrong. Joe’s dad was running around with one of their dogs. Where the chicken coop story came from who knows?

  36. Powell says:

    Is anyone watching LeAnn and Eddie on VH-1? I think it starts soon.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Wendy’s having them on the day they premiere.

      I’m getting my swoon eyes ready 😍😍😍😍

      • Powell says:

        Yes she did say that didn’t she? Eddie is swoon worthy. 🙂 Compared to her ex I can see why LeAnn feel for Eddie. Her Ex is a dancer, ballet I think. Eddie’s manly. Those Latino genes are something else.

        • PJ says:

          He may be good looking but he gives me the creeps, I would feel like I needed a shot of penicillin if I was in the same room he was in.

    • Powell says:

      Very sad. I believe she loved her son. The mothers I’ve seen their stories on tv, I believe they do love their children. But they love the “poor Stacey” that they get from their families and communities more than they love their child. Very sad.

    • Exit4 says:

      The conspiracy theorists will have a field day with this…

    • T-Rex says:

      I am going to look into the rate that sentencing dates are changed, I would bet it’s fairly often. I am wondering though if they changed the date due to LyinFELONJuicyJoe’s criminal case which starts that same week. If he is convicted of those criminal charges, or pleads guilty(I believe he will end up pleading guilty instead of a criminal trial at the last minute), this may impact the sentencing in the Federal case, i.e. he may get even more time being a convicted criminal felon on top of the Felonies he plead guilty to in Federal court. Interesting. We will have to see if ConvictFELONNida’s sentencing gets changed too since he sentencing is that same date.

    Empress you got me laughing to tears with your Ny Blog!!!! Husband didn’t know if I was crying or laughing… I told him: “Both”! Thank you Dear!

    I am so behind in news… I am always thinking in you guys, Love you! I am exhausted … I am still fighting those little creeps bedbugs! I’ve been turned down by three companies to do the “expermination” (Remember in the movie “Where the heart is” Sally Field plays Natalie Portman’s b*tch mom? She asks Natalie if the baby is one of those expermination things… Haahaa!).

  38. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    VV-thank you for mentioning the Highlight Hollywood site-it’s hysterical!!!

    This is the funniest story I have ever read about Lisa-she’s broke and cleaning the sidewalk-it’s so false and silly but there are people who believe everything they read…the good and the bad!!

    • VV™ says:

      I check his site every now and then. He is a close friend of bernie the cook. Some of his stories are flat out lies. He HATES Lisa with passion.

      I still cannot locate the copy of the transcript of Andrew Morrison’s Deposition on Tamara’s site. I read where she claimed she was getting them but I still cannot find the actual court docs.
      If anybody has the link for the court documents, please post it here.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Ok that’s the problem-Tamara didn’t put the actual document she put part of the transcript that she got from her “source”-now I know that sounds shady but Tamara is usually very careful about putting stuff in her blog that she can’t back up so I’m giving her the benefit of the doubt that it’s legit-plus the fact that she loves Vanderpump makes me think she has a good source…but in reality who knows????

        • VV™ says:

          Why would she put “part” of the transcript? If you have the goods, share them. Something smells here. She’s has been wrong many many times.
          I want to see the actual transcript until then, I’m not believing anything about it.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I knew you wouldn’t believe it-I wouldn’t believe it either if I liked any housewife enough to actually think they aren’t capable of being shady-but they are all shady and the more they have the more they have to lose…so they get shadier and shadier!!

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              And yes-Tamara has been wrong before but she hasn’t-as far as I recall-printed something like this without being able to back it up. The fact that VANDERpityparty isn’t tweeting her tearful denial makes me think that it’s true. Remember she wanted to sue RadarOnLine for repeating what Brandi said?-this is much worse if you ask me and she hasn’t tweeted a thing.

            • VV™ says:

              If she publishes the court docs, I’ll believe it. TT source is a supporter of Bustillos.
              #fishy #bloghits

              Again, when she back a it up with the court docs, I’ll believe her.
              I still remember her short stint on this blog and how she bad mothed and lied about Lynn. So, capable of making stuff up…she is…

            • kit9 says:

              Vanderliar’s shadiness isn’t in question–a jury found them guilty of malice to the tune of 100k. That’s a whole lot of shay shay.

        • Powell says:

          On Twitter last week she said a few times she was waiting to get something.

    NY First Look tonight. And JLo is going to be on WWHL tonight.

    I LOVE THE 2000s is hysterical

    I can’t wait for the new plastic surgery show with the doctor husbands from the OC and BH

    Good morning. It’s a little after 5:30 a.m and I’m up and ready for the day. Today is Job Fair Day. It starts at 8:30. I have a good dress. Not fancy, more preppy looking. It’s navy & white. Thank you for all the advice. I’ll let you guys know how it goes.

    I hope you all have a great day. 🙂

  42. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Well well well…her timing is amazing isn’t it?????? Look like BH will NOT be Vamderfree

    • Powell says:

      It should be interesting. Who will she hang out with? They all hate her. 😏

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Oh my. Good catch, Jill!
      This could only mean one thing IMO. WHO would be her friend? They FIRED the only two that were friendly to her! Honestly, if she’s going to film with that bunch, I have lost some respect for her.

      I do not want to watch that. 😡

  43. ladebra says:

    I think Kandi and Joyce are going on WWHL tonight. *****big raspberry******

  44. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Itssss Friday!! 😊 The sun is shining and no rain. I’m at the dentist. 😁 I hope you’re not and you have a great day.
