The night before the wedding.  In the finale for Kandi’s Wedding, we join family and wedding party members at the rehearsal dinner.  Seems Todd could not bring himself to attend as this pre-nuptial agreement is pending approval and he didn’t want to make any waves in the meanwhile. I think he was afraid of losing his temper with the pressure he felt.  So Todd and his best-men entourage were at another location, except one of his men who was clueless and at the rehearsal dinner with all the women.   Kandi went to the ladies room to take a phone call from Todd, who was explaining his absence and he wanted to know how they could make this right. While emotionally making her points to Todd over the phone, in walks Joyce, who in my opinion was only there to comfort her daughter in the event her dream came true and the wedding were to be called off.  Kandi was trying not to tell her mother too much, but was being lead in discussion and then we see Todd’s mother Sharon, exiting the ladies room. Being the wise woman she is, Sharon does not acknowledge either lady and basically runs like hell to escape.

Meanwhile, wedding party members, both with Todd and at the dinner in another location, are speaking to one another about the situation at hand – the unsigned pre-nup in the eleventh hour is on everyone’s mind. Is the wedding going to happen?   Apollo tells Todd, that he should have bullet-point every issue he had with an attorney immediately and Todd agreed, he did mess that up.  Todd’s buddies tease him a little bit about this pre-nup situation and one joking calls Todd a “baby Steadman”.   Todd said the bottom line is he can not live without Kandi, so he needs to do what he needs to do to get married.   At the dinner, more wedding party members are debating the issue with the pre-nup, this of course is being discussed before Kandi returned to the group. And Joyce, being the concerned and loving mother she is, went and found Kandi’s father, Titus and told him to go to Kandi and reinforce the importance that Kandi doesn’t marry without that document being signed.  I’m sure Kandi’s father let that go in one ear and out the other.

It’s 2am that night and we see Todd leaving his hotel room and he arrives at Kandi’s house. The camera stayed outside of the house, but Todd had a mic on and he awakes Kandi and she said “you’re not supposed to be here.” Apparently Kandi was trying to follow the tradition of not seeing he bride before the ceremony.  Todd asks if she could fix two issues, he will sign. Remove the 30 day period he has to evacuate the home in the event of divorce and change the articles related to what he is entitled after her death.  Kandi says, okay, I’ll contact the attorney with that information.

Day of the wedding. Don Juan, Kandi’s manager, pushed into wedding planning, has a talking head where he talks about how crazy it was to put this together in 5 weeks and he will never again do such a thing.   Todd is in his hotel room near the wedding venue.  We see Sharon, come to visit her son Todd and she is getting an update on what has transpired and tells Todd that none of these legal matters should have come down to the last minute.  I can’t imagine how hard it must be to plan for your separation or divorce within days of tying the knot, something like that would probably too much pressure for me, but Todd knows about productions and he’s got one in the works, so he marches forward to hang in there the best he can.

Along with Sharon is Kaela. She is the 17 year old daughter of Todd from a previous relationship. She lives with her mother in New York.  Todd has a friendly co-parenting arrangement and they were never married.  Kaela seems relatively quiet and a well-mannered young woman, I can imagine she and Riley might get along well.      Derek J shows up to work with hair for several of the wedding party, I didn’t see him do Kandi’s hair, but I assume he did.  Make-up artists are also working on members of the wedding party.  Kandi seems to be in a hotel room, with family only, separate from other wedding party members.  Seems to be a tranquil environment, and anyone who has either married or been wedding party member could maybe agree that the word tranquil very rarely fits the bill. But it did, that is, until Kandi’s mother, Joyce enters the room.

Joyce has her words, of course, none of which are positive or the likes of which a mother would issue a daughter on this special day.  Joyce was to supply something old, a bracelet and just gives it to Tan, the Matron of Honor to put on Kandi, she surely doesn’t want to put it on her daughter.  This whole scene just makes me shudder.  Kandi’s daughter and Todd’s daughter are in the room, and within earshot of both, Joyce tells Kandi she has a great girl. Kandi corrects her to say she has great girls. Joyce was trying to imply she doesn’t accept Kaela as a family member.    Kandi notices Kaela is withdrawn and Sharon said it’s because of what Joyce said. Sharon and Kaela exit the room, I tell you that Sharon is one smart woman, she knows when to duck out since that one occasion she had it out with Joyce.  Kandi quizes her mother on what did you say to Kaela.  Joyce denies saying anything, it appears though Kandi was present, but not aware Kaela could hear.   Needless to say, Joyce and Kandi have an argument with voices raised and Riley yells at them to please stop.  She pleaded with them before she runs off to cry in the bathroom. Joyce follows, she tries to console Riley. Joyce seemed to seriously be trying to console her grand-daughter, unlike her actions with her own daughter.

Joyce in a talking head says, “It sometimes seems Kandi is subservient to Todd – whatever that big head Napolean says and claps his hands, Kandi comes running.”   Rico (the dress designer) brings in the dress and it’s revealed.  This is the first Kandi has seen it completed and surprisingly Rico seems to want sympathy for working so hard and then he throws a sheet on the floor and the dress in it (it has a very large train and could not hang) picks up the sheet like Santa’s sack and walks out the door.  I was astonished at how he handled the dress and furthermore, she’s not even getting a fitting, Rico is taking it straight to the venue where she will put it on just for the ceremony.  Kandi seems happy though, so I’m on my own island of astonishment here.

An attorney, two witnesses, a notary and videographer show up in Todd’s hotel room. He is read the agreement and agrees and signs on video. The deed is done, the wedding can commence. Kandi very seriously was not going to marry him without this pre-nup.   They are about three hours away from wedding time and we see the female wedding party members preparing and Cousin Weenie starts asking Joyce questions and Tan about had a coronary that she was engaging with Joyce about the legal documents, goodness knows where that could go, right?  So Tan did her best to shut that down without going off on Weenie.  I’m sure that seemed innocent, but we know what a short fuse Joyce has, let’s not fan the flames of a fire, alrighty?  Kandi is lucky to have a friend in Tan.

Joyce continues to share her special brand of joy by saying her make-up makes her look dead. I can’t imagine how many people wanted to jump on that statement.   Back with Kandi, she’s gone back into the zone, her tranquil state, with Joyce gone. I’ve never seen a bride so relaxed.  Kwame, who is a friend, her stylist and a brides-man, shows up with her dress to wear to the venue.  This was a very tight (why would you expect differently!) very short white beaded dress with cap sleeves and a higher neckline, there was an illusion panel as part of the top, sorry to say I don’t have a photo of this dress.  She wore a corset underneath and filled out the dress in a va-va-voom sort of way.  I’m surprised she went all out with this dress considering none of the wedding guests would see her in the dress, as she changed into her wedding gown and had a different, much simpler white dress for the party after the wedding.

The lions, a male and female in separate cages are placed outside the entry of the venue. Guests start to arrive. Todd meets the men in his bridal party for drinks and cigars, his friend toasts to “Love, Life and Happiness”.  Sharon notes that Kandi is not nervous and Carmon says that you don’t need to be nervous when you’re doing the right thing.   Kandi compliments Kaela’s dress. She and Riley are both in short white dresses. Phaedra stops in to see if all is well and they high five one another over the pre-nup is signed, sealed and delivered.

Guests are filling in the venue and Kandi has yet to take her car to the venue. I’m sensing Kandi will be late to her own wedding and that would almost be the norm, as we have witnessed her being routinely late in the course of her time on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.   Cynthia and Peter arrive.  I will make a list of guests later, in lieu of describing them as shown. I noticed that guests were subject to security detail with hand held body scanners.  And the male lion outside took a liking to letting out a growl, almost if on cue for some of the guests that looked his way.

7pm, start time for the wedding and Kandi is just now leaving the hotel with Riley who is fretting they are late.  There are some cute mother daughter moments, like Kandi reminding Riley why she suggested flats for the transport to the ceremony. Riley teetering in her high heels and complaining of her feet. A little prayer Kandi says in the car was sweet.

They arrive at the venue and to Kandi’s surprise and dissatisfaction, the bridesmaids are not dressed. To my shock, there are two women on sewing machines, apparently making last minute alterations. Kandi tells everyone, “What is going on? Can y’all get dressed please, people have been waiting over an hour!”   As if they were waiting on the girls all this time!  Kandi gets dressed and they don’t show the fuss with the dress, so I guess all is well there. I will let the pictures speak for the detail of the dress and Todd’s attire.

Kandi and Todd’s 300 guests have waited for 90 minutes past start time, so let’s get this wedding started.  The setting is beautifully draped, with excellent lighting and there is a white center stage, with a gorgeous chandelier overhead and candles surround the round platform base.  Q Parker, R&B recording artist begins singing and Todd makes his entrance following some of the female African style dancers who drop petals in his path. This actually looks more tasteful than it sounds.

Members of the wedding party escort one another to the stage. Apollo and Phaedra, being a couple in the party, get to walk together down the aisle and he, in a very natural way says to her that he loves her, and Phaedra replies, I love you too.

KW E5_6The male African style dancers come out and put on a big show and the cameras caught Tan grooving with the beat, which was quite funny.  Some female dancers were left to cover Kandi with feathers.  R&B singer, Mad Scientist singing a beautiful song, I don’t know what it was but he was singing about a Queen. It would have been appropriate to list music credits at the end of this episode, but they did not.

KW E5_5The feathers are lowered as the music changes to reveal the bride.  She makes her entrance to a song sung by R&B singer Soulchild.  Todd gets teary eyed while watching his bride approach.  The officiator is Pastor Titus Burress, Kandi’s father.  He reaches the part of the ceremony where he asks “does anyone present know of any lawful or scriptual reason that this wedding should not take place?”  The camera shows a few people look anxious and then pans to Joyce who looks like a deer in headlights and in a voice over, by the art of perfect editing we hear her voice say “why in the hell is everyone looking at ME?”  By the grace of God, she didn’t say word.  The pastor asks who giveth away this woman and Joyce flippantly said “I do” in conjunction with turning her back to walk away rather abruptly.  The pastor adds, “and I do, her father, Titus Burress.”

KW E5_3The ceremony continues without any specially written vows, at least none that are shown in the episode. They exchange rings. Apollo supplies the ring to Todd and Kandi was surprised to see it was a new ring, and not what she expected.  Kaela and Riley are brought forward and each of the daughters are given a ring from their new step-parent to symbolize they are joined as a family.  The bride and groom are announced and share a big wet kiss.

KW E5_1The wedding party exits and the guests were asked to leave to a reception area. The room they were wed in will be transformed to a party venue, with dance floor and stage for a band.  Kandi and Todd are in a holding area before she goes for a dress change and Todd is already with a drink in hand and she asks him nicely not to get drunk.  Joyce is filmed saying “she married now” as if it were some point of no return. Kandi sees her mother nearby and gestures for her to look at the ring, as to say it’s a new ring, mama, but Joyce simply shrugs her shoulders, as to say so what and made no attempt to even look at it.

As for the guests, we see Peter and Cynthia from Real Housewives of Atlanta. Peter is fairly put out with the fact that Joyce did not even acknowledge Todd while they were on the stage together. Cynthia didn’t seem to notice or care too much, I think she was scanning the room for people to talk to that were not Peter.

KW E5_7Other guests were, Porsha Williams and her sister Lauren, from Real Housewives of Atlanta. Porsha asked Lauren if she saw the tigers out front. Chuckles.  Sheree, a former Real Housewife of Atlanta. She arrived solo and was hanging out with Miss Lawrence and Derek J as the two were tearing into Rico’s style and handling of the dress.  Record producer, Jazze Pha.  Monica, the singer.  Sherri Sheppard, actress. Tamara Braxton, R&B recording artist. Kesha Knight Pullum, who you might remember as Rudy on The Cosby Show, was listed a friend of Kandi.  Chef Roble, celebrity chef. Big Tigger, Radio Personality.  You might also recognize Tiny (from TI and Tiny reality show) and Fantasia (a singer who came up from American Idol) who were bridesmaids.  And of course, Phaedra and Apollo from Real Housewives of Atlanta were in the wedding party and are seemingly real life good friends with Kandi and Todd.

KW E5_2At the reception, Todd and Kandi are seated as people offer toasts. Derek J. eggs on Joyce to give a toast and she was the last to get up and do so. You could feel the guests who know her, holding their collective breath.  Joyce said, “To my daughter Kandi, she seems very happy and to Todd, I hope you continue to make her happy.”   Okay, everyone can exhale now, and let’s party!

KW E5_4The very elaborate and large cake is cut.  They have the first dance.  Everything is rather traditional. Guest join dancing and we see only a tiny little segment of this reception, such a shame, I would rather trade all the Joyce moments for the reception to have more time.

The music seemed fantastic and in a talking head Kandi said “this is the best party I’ve ever been to” and Todd said, “we could have sold tickets” and of course, as married couples do, Kandi balked in embarrasment that Todd said that.   The bouquet was tossed, Porsha missed catching it and after she got up off the floor she dusted herself off saying at least she didn’t dive for it like that other woman. Chuckles.

Kandi and Todd privately, with cameras of course, speaking at the end of it all; Kandi said she went to a party and came home married.  She said she knew it would come together and Todd airs that he could do with less last minute things and she argues they do last minute good together. I would agree to that fact. He wants to hear her say her new name and she says Burress-Tucker and that would be her legal name, but Todd was fishing for Mrs. Tucker, so she said it to make him happy and they drive off into the proverbial sunset…he actually did hoist her in the air and carry her out the room into an elevator.  Todd may appear small in stature and proclaim not to work out, but he is strong!


Real Housewives Of Orange County

S9 E 12  “La-Bomb-ba”

By Stars99

RHOOC S9 cast

Note:  This week, while watching the “Next Food Network Star” I was introduced to the hilarious concept of “Resting Bitch Face.” It’s that face that someone unknowingly has when they’re listening, concentrating, or thinking – You know… the look on someone’s face that when isolated and taken out of context they look like a real “bitch.” I’m obsessing on pictures of people with acute cases of “Resting Bitch Face” or “RBF.” I’ve included some in this very recap – You’ll have to be the judge on who our biggest offenders are this week. Sadly, one of our biggest potential offenders didn’t have a thing to be bitchy about this week – So there aren’t any RBF pictures of Heather this week… But I’m sure there will be next week!

Remember last week… David and Shannon join Vicki and Brooks (Ugh) in Puerto Vallarta and stayed in a very small room for one whole night until Vicki’s bro gave up his room to them… Heather hires a chef… Tamra berated Eddie for not wanting to get up in the middle of the night to take care of their pretend robo baby which is just as fake as her boobs AND her personality… Lizzie is wrestling on the balance of career and family – Lizzie is trying to bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan… (Sorry, gratuitous commercial reference here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0_uhUhqrbk)…

Let’s begin this week by remembering howVicki stated in a previous episode that she and Brooks (Ugh!) are an example of a healthy relationship. In this episode, Vicki said that in her next life she wants to be a marriage counselor… Let’s just let those bewildering words sink in for a moment, shall we?  Vicki tells us she wishes she had surrounded herself with people who would have encouraged her to stay married to Donn. Right… As if Vicki has ever listened to anyone’s advice… ever!

Last week left off with “The Unhappys” arguing about David’s new taste for tequila. Shannon was telling David that everyone’s constant criticism of their relationship was making her crazy in her head. Some might say she didn’t have very far to go – but that’s a whole nuther Oprah.  David just wants to have fun, puhleeze! They suck it up and return to the dinner table and apologize for their behavior. It sounded like a sincere apology… I was startled to hear one on this show…lol.

So because he’s a cross between a syrupy sweet Hallmark Card and a greasy used car salesman (No disrespect intended towards Hallmark or to sellers of previously-owned cars), Brooks offers his sage advice…Are you ready?… Okay, brace yourself… “A past doesn’t define our future.” Whoa… Dude, that’s oh, so deep! Thunderous applause rang throughout the universe… Angels sang… The heavens opened and sunlight drenched the face of this amazingly enlightened messenger of bumper sticker truths… And immediately everyone at the table bought into the snake oil being peddled by this reptilian snake of a man with a sneaky past and a highly questionable present. Me? I just gagged. The problem is that the words that he’s saying are essentially true… It just caused my entire body to recoil because he’s probably used that as a platitude over and over again to excuse himself from accountability for his own wrongdoings.


Everyone decides they’re going to go have fun and “Whoop It Up” at Andalés. Once there, the women all get up on the bar to dance and “Party like it’s 1999.” Vicki demonstrated that she was very comfortable dancing on top of that bar and almost looked like she was going to flash Brooks (Ugh!)… That Vicki is a wild one… However, for the record, none of them had fun glowy headband bows like they did last season when they danced on that same bar during Tamra’s bachelorette trip… Sigh… I miss Lydia…

Tamra, Eddie and Ryan are discussing things at CUT Fitness. Next month it will be their one year anniversary. They’ve recently had to raise the membership prices and Ryan is asked how the people are taking the new price structure. Ryan suggests that if they redo the floors that people would probably be more congenial to paying the higher prices. Eddie says that if they can’t make sales then they’re out of business.  Because he’s an awesome son and employee, Ryan sarcastically wishes them, “Good Luck.”


Evidently, Eddie made a $30,000 mistake when he chose to put plank flooring on top of a cushioned floor. Tamra described it as trying to build a puzzle on a pillow – It just doesn’t work. Unfortunately, the fix is costly. CUT Fitness will also have to be out of commission while they’re redoing the floor so it will cost the struggling business even more money. Eddie looked cranky and probably a little embarrassed that they were discussing this subject on TV. I’m with him – It was incredibly stupid and short-sighted to air this dirty little floor secret to potential customers. I mean, why would anyone knowingly want to pay $149 for an unlimited 30-day membership to a gym with bad floors?  I’m guessing they’re wishing right about now that they had taken better advantage of their free advertising opportunity when they were on, “Good Day LA.”  Gooberheads.

Tamra RBF

Heather and all of the kids meet Terry for dinner at a restaurant. The kids are all antsy in their pantsy – They are so not sitting still for very long. Fortunately, Miriam (Nanny) magically appears and whisks the kids away to a different location for dessert while Heather and Terry remain at the restaurant sipping leisurely on their cocktails. I think the Nanny has a parrot umbrella. Heather tells us that the whole family has dinner together at home once or twice a week and they also go out for dinner together once or twice a week. I’ve got to hand it to them – It is not easy to get people with so many conflicting schedules together for a sit-down dinner a few times a week.

Heather tells Terry she thinks they should get a dog. In this week’s edition of, “I Kid You Not” Heather says that a rental home is a perfect place to potty train dogs. This just infurryates me (Thanks, Gretchen!) – Because in my opinion, this entitled attitude is just so wrong! What has happened to us as a society? I was taught to leave places better than when I arrived whenever possible and to return borrowed items the same or better as when I received them. It’s like Heather attended Brandi’s (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) school of dog training which allows dogs to pee on rented wooden floors.  I dunno, maybe it’s just me – but that attitude just irks me.  I guess it’s the purposeful timing of getting the dogs while they’re renting that just kinda irritates me (Thanks, Milania!).

In order to be politically correct and so they don’t get any grief when they don’t adopt a rescue dog, Heather announces they will be making a donation to a rescue organization. Evidently, since Heather and some of the kids have known allergies to dogs, they need to be careful of the exact breed of dog they will adopt into their family. Since the pedigrees of rescue dogs are often uncertain – They’ve made the decision to make a donation to a rescue organization while carefully securing their pedigreed fur family through a different avenue. Terry astutely observes that it’s a guilt donation. Heather is oh, so NOT amused.

Lizzie RBF

Meanwhile, in bikini-land, Lizzie and her “Sun Kitten Sales Rep” Trisha make a sales presentation to Donna (Owner of Molly Brown’s Swimwear). Lizzie’s suits are being modeled by Miss California USA 2013 – Mabelynn Capeluj. It’s very smart to have a beauty queen model your bathing suits.  Lizzie says that she’s working her dupa off to make her company successful – and that no one is helping her. Well, unless you count her Dad who gave her $100,000 to start the company in the first place. Or Trisha… Or whomever is watching the kids while she makes her dreams come true… Or… or… or… but I think she meant that she’s not getting hands-on help with her business – Which, if that’s true – She should approach her business differently – There are lots of resources out there for people in her position.

Lizzie is tired of people who think her business is just a hobby (No names mentioned, Christian!) Lizzie asserts that she is growing a business and that she is a good designer… She’s ready for everyone else to believe in her like she believes in herself… (Clap your hands together – Don’t let Lizzie’s dream die! I believe! I believe!)  I do think it’s kewl that her bikinis are manufactured in Santa Ana (Orange County).

Meanwhile, back in Puerto Vallarta, “The Healthiest Couple in the Entire World” is going horseback riding with “The Unhappys.”  Vicki arranged for a really nice private lunch for “The Unhappys” next to a picturesque stream. Shannon, (You know the one who would do ANYTHING to save her marriage) told us that she was sleepy and ungratefully implied that she would rather have taken a nap. Wait, now… Who was it that said she wanted to spend more alone time with her husband? Who was that… Hmmm…. Don’t tell me – It will come to me any moment now… honest… (lol).

David and Shannon

Shannon and David have a heart-to-heart talk about their relationship. Shannon acknowledges that she’s getting upset more often these days and that she’s in a bit of a slump.  She seems to understand conceptually that David wouldn’t want to spend time with someone who complains all the time. Okay Shannon… Here’s an idea… STOP COMPLAINING!  It’s really quite easy… It’s like the tool I used to use with the groups of adolescent girls with whom I worked… If any of them (and me too, for that matter) ever said something negative about something or someone – They would have to instantly name 3 good things about that same person. If they rolled their eyes about it or copped an attitude about it – The number of good things they would have to come up with would magically go up to 6… The beauty of it was that I didn’t even have to be the one who enforced it – They policed each other. Even now, I can raise my hand with my fingers signifying “3” and they ALL know what they have to do. And yes, even I had to come up with “3 Good Things” every now and then, too! The point is – It’s possible to curtail complaining – If teenaged girls can do it… Certainly Shannon can do it!

They talk about their argument the previous night during dinner. Shannon once again tries to unsuccessfully convince us that she was only telling the others at the dinner table that David had found a new drink (tequila).  David spills the beans when he says that they had a previous conversation about him drinking tequila and that Shannon didn’t want him to drink it anymore. Evidently, David drank a lot of tequila at Heather’s “There’s a hoe down at the hoedown” party (I just never tire of that name…lol). David is not much of a drinker (remember when Shannon criticized him for that in a previous episode?) and it seems like tequila really affects David’s personality since he turns into someone Shannon doesn’t even recognize. David doesn’t want Shannon to tell him what he can and cannot do – He’s a responsible adult.  He’s having fun and he’s happy and that alone should make Shannon happy. Shannon insists she is just telling him that she doesn’t recognize him when he drinks tequila and that it’s her way of controlling the situation.

Then, in a very transparent moment that seemed very genuine to me, Shannon communicates to David that she feels like they’re just roommates. They don‘t talk or spend any time together. David is tired of hearing Shannon say she wants to spend more time with him. He thinks they have an amazing life but he wishes they didn’t live the way they live. David says, “So I failed, and I kill myself for that.” He also says that it’s his issue and that at some point he hopes Shannon will forgive him. (Okay, I have no idea why he said he failed – it was NOT clear at all…At least not to me – It could be an alleged financial issue that requires him to work all the time – It could be an alleged infidelity issue – Heck, it could be that he picked the wrong color of paint for all I know… but there’s something way more than mere tequila at the root of this stuff…).

David expresses that he doesn’t see any action on Shannon’s part. David tells her he is “done with wasting my life.”  He wants to be happy… He wants to come home and feel loved… Shannon blindly says that’s what she’s wanted for the last 13 years. He tells her that they don’t have it. And because she just can’t help herself, Shannon starts listing again her grievances against David: 1) You don’t sleep in the same room with me; 2) You don’t talk to me; 3) I don’t feel like you care about me; and, 4) I don’t believe that you love me. David just wants to be happy and to stop living an unhappy life. Shannon thinks he is saying he wants a divorce – He says that’s not what he said.

David challenges Shannon with the idea that she should want to be happy, too. She does – She wants to be happy WITH David. David thinks Shannon needs to be happy within herself [first]. Shannon thinks she is happy within herself but David disagrees. I think the whole world disagrees. Shannon says in her talking head that what she’s hearing him say is, “I’m not happy with you, Shannon.” It’s too bad she didn’t voice that to David at the time.  Perhaps he could have clarified it for her.

David tells Shannon, “I do love you – The question is… Can I make you happy?” David thinks he doesn’t make her happy because if he did – She wouldn’t treat him the way she does.  David thinks they have to find it in their hearts to forgive, to communicate differently, and to heal.

Tamra phone RBF

Tamra and Eddie log into the computer to access their final parenting results from their time with robo baby Astro. They call the company to help them understand the results from the computer-generated report. Basically, they failed on parenting their robo baby. Of course, Tamra took care of the baby way more than Eddie – but they still failed overall. Eddie could NOT care less since he doesn’t want any more kids at this point of time.  I’m hoping this is the last we’ll hear of this very silly storyline.

The “The Healthiest Couple in the Entire World” is having dinner with “The Unhappys” in Puerto Vallarta. They talk about how disappointed David and Shannon are with Tamra and Eddie. While Tamra has said she’s sorry, Shannon doesn’t know if their relationship can ever be repaired. Brooks (Ugh!) voices his disapproval that Vicki still sees and talks to Tamra after the way she treated him. Yeah, well, she’s a coworker, Mr. Rocket Scientist. Vicki says she doesn’t trust openly anymore and that she’s always on high alert – Especially with Tamra.  This trip has solidified Shannon and Vicki’s friendship. I’m sure they will be exchanging friendship bracelets any day now…


Heather and family are preparing their house for their two new furry family members.  As they’re constructing the indoor fenced area – One of the kids asked if it was going to be shaped in a circle – Heather said, “No, more like a rhombus.”  Lol… Heather can’t help herself from correcting people, can she?  I doubt many of her kids (ages 10 and under) understand the term “rhombus” but okay… lol… Heather attempted to lay down the law that when the kids walk the dogs they will have to pick up their poop. Heather realizes the care and upkeep of the dog will fall on her shoulders… But I think it will also likely fall on the Nanny, the assistant and the chef… lol… All the kids are sitting down on chairs when their two fur siblings arrive and they can barely contain themselves with excitement… I think I heard one of their names is “Champers” (Insert gratuitous eye roll here at naming a dog after Heather’s beloved word for champagne – “champs”) and the other one sounded like “Oscar” but don’t hold me to it…


Vicki is back from Puerto Vallarta and is busy at work.  Tamra visits Vicki at her office.  They of course talk about Shannon’s issues with Tamra. Vicki was surprised that Tamra shared with Heather things that Shannon told her in confidence. We previously saw footage that Tamra also phoned Vicki about the whole thing, too – but evidently THAT’s okay. Tamra tries to justify why she told Heather about Shannon’s marriage.  Vicki is dumbfounded that Tamra initially lied to Shannon. Tamra’s mad at Heather because Heather betrayed her trust. Oh sure, Tamra knows what she did was wrong… BUT she immediately asserts that it’s not great what Heather did, either.  Tamra correctly says that it would be hypocritical of her to confront Heather about telling others about Shannon’s marital problems when she, herself did the same exact thing. Somehow, Vicki doesn’t think it’s hypocritical because she thinks there’s a difference between the two types of gossip.  On one hand, Tamra shared because she was trying to endear Heather towards Shannon and it was kept between just the two of them…. While on the other hand, Heather gossiped to a table full of women just to gossip… However, Vicki does think that it was malicious behavior from both women.  Vicki told Tamra that Shannon said she would never trust her again. Okay, so now, Vicki is a blabbermouth, too! Vicki said she told Shannon how Tamra had hurt her in the past – and Tamra quickly said, “Well, you hurt me, too!” Vicki and Tamra get into a “Who Hurt Who Worse” competition where no one wins BUT everyone gets hurt…

Vicki - RBF

Next week… A couple’s friendship summit between Brooks & Vicki and Terry & Heather takes place… There’s a party at Lizzie’s family beach house complete with hula dancers and fire eaters… Shannon confronts Tamra about telling her that Terry said something like, “Let’s take the Beadors down” while Tamra stands there and looks at her quizzically… As they sit around the dinner table, Terry shouts across the table to David about this alleged quote… David tells him he shouldn’t be the one talking…  Shannon doesn’t want Heather to spin this negatively on her again and she stomps off while telling everyone how they will ALL see the truth (about Heather)… It’s driving Shannon crazy that Heather is spinning everything to seem like all Shannon does is yell at her…

That’s it for this week… Thanks for reading… Hope to see you next week! Happy Trails!

    ⭐ Happy Birthday Chismosa! ⭐
    ⭐ Happy Birthday IowaGirl! ⭐
    Hoping both of you were treated to something special yesterday!

  2. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    I ❤ each of you that have left posts of well wishes for me in recent days, it means a lot! My situation is improving, it's going slower for the dog, but at least he can lay around all day! 🙂

    MelTheHound was poised to post a blog this morning, but I have not heard from him. I hope all is well for Jeff and it's nothing more than the loss of power or internet service.

    • Powell says:

      I’m glad you’re improving even if slowly. Your pup is just taking time also to hang out w/you and get that special attention. I think he wants your Court to come back to take care of him. 🙂
      Hopefully everything is ok w/MTH and just a power outage like you’re saying. But TexasTart please don’t stress over getting a new blog up. We want you resting. You know we don’t mind hanging out on a blog for a few days if need be. MTH too. Please don’t stress about the blog. We appreciate you both so much.

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        LOLOLOL – “I think her wants your court to come back and take care of him.” He has received SO much attention and care that the other dog is jealous! Grrrr. 🙄

        Thanks for your kind words Powell, I appreciate your ‘sunshine’ 🙂

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

      Hope you feel better soon, Tartsy!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      So glad to hear you are improving, dear Tarts! Best wishes to your pooch.

  3. HuskerHuny says:

    Happy birthday to the birthday girls – Chismosa and Iowa Girl! Celebrate big!

    Next week all heck is going to break loose on OC and it’s about time. What a yawner this year. For the life of me, Bravo cannot find five or six more interesting women than these? Condescending Heather, tramp Tamra, broken Shannon, needy Lizzie and that they make Vicki look almost normal. Vicki has too much history on this show that I could never give her any props, especially when she keeps that nasty man around. Put a fork in it already. The most frustrating this about it is that I keep watching!

    It’s a beautiful day out this way – hope it is where you are as well!

    • Powell says:

      HAA Husker. I like Lizzie though. She’s not in the drama. We have to have someone that’s not a busy body. I don’t think she’s needy. To me she’s trying to make her husband happy in her balancing act. And yes. Vicki is so “normal” this season.

  4. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Happy birthday to the one and only FELICIA!!!! I❤️You with all my might-
    Happy Birthday IowaGirl-have a great day
    Jeff hope everything is okay!!

  5. Powell says:

    Good afternoon all. I’m again posting the link to the baby’s and their look a like BFF dogs.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Wow, I haven’t seen a brindle Great Dane before! This link is totally worth it for the dogs alone! That Dogue de Bordeaux is a perfect specimen of the breed!!! It’s a Mastiff breed – like Hooch from the Turner & Hooch movie. My favorite one with the kid was with the Bulldog!

      Thanks for posting this link 🙂

  6. T-Rex says:

    Okay, I loved that you put a picture of RoidRaginRyan on the page holding the ROBO-Baby, since he has a human child of his own that he doesn’t pay for nor sees! Hey cluephone to TrailerTrashtrampysue, why don’t you pay some of your deadbeat son’s child support and have a relationship with your baby grandchild! Glad to see I was right when I heard a while ago that the CU(next) Tuesday gym is failing financially. As most folks know it takes businesses up to three years to even see a dime of profit and these two morons hadn’t even thought about this, uhm NotGayEddies dad is a lawyer don’t you two idiots even have a business plan? I know that TrailerTrashTrampySue originally put this whole gym thing together because she thought that Bravo was going to give her a Spin-Off highlighting the gym. So, they have no money and the first thing they do is raise their fees instead of getting your ass out there and marketing your gym to more members, this is the first sign of a failing business that has no clue how to make money by raising prices. You raise your prices when you have so much demand and clients, not when you have no clients and no demand, sheesh at least you could have done was taken a simple economics class or read up on a little thing called “supply and demand”. Don’t get me started on IckyVicky, I am not watching but by reading she is still the same hag in my opinion. She has NO clue about a good relationship and who takes relationship advice from a twice-divorced woman, who cheated on both husbands during the marriages, and now she is dating a guy who admits he isn’t even faithful to her, but she stays with him because she is NOTHING without a man in her life. Yep, she is a great marital barometer. of what NOT to do. OverSharingNeedyAssSharon’s husband needs to just cut his losses and get that divorce now, because who needs to put off the inevitable, these two are not destined for a “happily ever after”, unless they get some SERIOUS professional help, and OverSharingNeedyAssSharon could use some SERIOUS one on one counseling.

    • Powell says:

      Wow. Back up t-Rex. I didn’t go past the first line. Ryan has a child? Has it been mentioned on the show? Tamra’s a grandmother? 😧

      • Orson says:

        Well, I know his girlfriend has 3 children. Maybe t-rex got him confused with Lauri’s son (the heroin addict) who has a baby who went through heroin withdrawal in the maternity ward?

      • T-Rex says:

        I read that his daughter is named Dakota Vieth and was born some time in 2010. This is not the child of his new girlfriend/fiance

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          There was some Facebook drama that said Ryan posted he had a daughter back in 2010-there are no pictures of this alleged child so I’m hoping that Ryan was just being his weird self because we do not that special kind of fool procreating any time soon!!!

          • shamrockblonde says:

            wait – remember when he had “nugget” tatooed on his inside bottom lip? wasn’t that the nickname for the baby?

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              The girl who was pregnant at that time had a miscarriage if I’m not mistaken-not long after Ryan got that tattoo

          • Powell says:

            Gosh y’all know so much about this when I hadn’t heard/read anything. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      And Tamra”s gym is failing? You’re right T-Rex. You don’t raise prices just to gain from the losses. If they don’t get a plan asap the doors will close because there’s a gym down the street, around the corner, two blocks away, 5, 10,.15 minutes away by car. There’s too many good reputable gyms that the clientele can go to.

      • jezzibel says:

        $149 for and unlimited 30 day membership….isn’t that kind of a contradiction, I can see asking a $150 for a 3 month membership….and what does unlimited mean, 30 days says there is a limit. I’m assuming they close in the evenings and close early on sundays. I think Eddie is the only one putting any real effort into making that place work

        • Powell says:

          Yes I’m like what’s “unlimited”? And in 30 days. Well we know Tamra is the one writing this stuff up and not a hired consultant. I’ve seen commercials in my area for Golds Gym and Bally’s I think for $9.95 or $19.95 per month.
          $149 are they giving facials, a blow out and make-up(2 new things hi-class gyms are offering)? What do you get for $149? That’s crazy.

          • Powell says:

            And do they open at 4 or 5 am? They do in my area. If course Tamra is asleep until 9am.

          • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

            Hi Powell! I can see if it’s a Pilates studio with transformer machines to use unlimited for a month. I paid almost $20 a class for it and could only afford the package of 10. So I’m not sure what they’re offering.

  7. T-Rex says:

    So CONVICTFelonNida only gets 8 years, that’s a shame, he should have gotten more, at least he has to serve for sure 7 years of that at least.


    • Orson says:

      I’ve been re-watching The Sopranos lately. Does he think he’s going to get Witness Protection after he does his time? I don’t know how that works with Bravolebrities.

    • Powell says:

      I knew you’d be on the case. Thks. 😀

    • chismosa™ says:

      Ok TRex break it down — he MUST serve 7 years ???
      No chance for early release – AT ALL
      Right ????

      And is Phakedra being held accountable for anything ? She didn’t sign off on stuff also ????

      Thanks for the update

      • T-Rex says:

        From the court files since this is NOT his first “prison rodeo” he doesn’t get a break on his sentence more than a year. Note that if he gets any other felonies that Georgia has the 3 strikes rule, he could go to prison for life. This guy hasn’t been clean since he was twelve so I would bet that when his 7 or 8 years are up, he will come out with a new scam ready to go. I don’t think this guy could do an honest day’s work, and he doesn’t try. Phaekdra so far has not been charged with anything, they don’t have anything on her that could stick, and so far no one has gotten anything concrete that she committed any crimes. I think ConvictFelonNida would have “rolled” on her if he could, but I think she has more “dirt” on him then he has been charged with and he will keep his mouth shout about her.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I saw on….Facebook? Can’t remember where, but people are saying there are worse criminals (rapists, etc) walking free and he has to serve time. I don’t know where they are getting their info, but the one convicted rapist I know got 30 years with no parole.

        • Exit4 says:

          She is a lawyer-not that they don’t commit crimes-but is think she’d find a way to cover her butt. She may not be great in a courtroom from what we’ve seen-but she still has the knowledge.

    • Powell says:

      This is what I posted on the other blog earlier T-Rex. 🙂
      Wendy Williams said in 4 hrs Apollo will be sentenced. Get on it T-Rex. 😀 And Phadera went to Mexico this past weekend w/Fantasia and Kandi. There have been no pics of P & A om instagram for the past 6 months so Wendy is speculating that maybe a divorce is in the future.
      Tomorrow Wendy will gossip about Matthew Knowles, yup Beyonce’s dad, that he’s gotten another woman pregnant. The first woman has already been kicked out of her home for non payment of rent because she has no money. Beyonce’ needs to have her daddy fixed.

    • Powell says:

      He’s Lucy as heckler. His oldest son will be 12 or 13. That’s when boys most definitely need their dad. Well Apollo just needs to hold his head down while in prison and not start thinking of a new scheme to fleece money when he gets out.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Thank you T-Rex for the Apollo update. I knew that went down today but have not surfed for news yet.

  8. designernailsdiana says:

    Apollo Nida 8 years in prison. Alex McCord is on HLN discussing the case too.

  9. Foxymel11(Mel) says:

    Happy Birthday Chismosita!! I hope you have an amazing day! 🙂
    Happy Birthday IowaGirl!

  10. Thank you so much for the terrific blog, Tartsy! I hope you’re feeling a little better and your pup too! Stars, hilarious OC recap. Shannon, please just stop complaining. I bet if she bit her tongue more then everyone would eventually be happy.
    Ps, Heather is a stuck up bitch! Terry was right when he called her out on that. She comes off even more of a bitch when she tries to be overly diplomatic.

    I loved Kandi’s wedding! Coming to America is one of my happy movies, and the did a very good tribute to the beginning of that movie. Mama Joyce is a trifling snake, btw. Lol

    • Powell says:

      “Heather is a stuck up birch!” 😄😱 HA Foxy!
      Coming to America is one of my favs. It was on last week. I like a lot of Eddie Murphy’s earlier films.
      I haven’t seen the wedding. Not the last 3 or 4 epis. I’m just tired of Momma Joyce. I’ve had enough of her. She’s an embarrassment. She’s not being protective. She’s not funny or cute. Kandi needs to not have her on ATL next season. Kandi’s prenup was hardcore I’ve heard. If they divorce it will be because of Joyce and Todd will be out in the cold.

      • Powell, Mama Joyce was dreadful on the last episode too. I just wish that Kandi would set her straight, but then Mama Joyce would pull the mom card.

        Did you watch Trading Places with Eddie Murphy? So funny.

        • Powell says:

          Every single time Trading Places comes on I have to watch it. So darn funny. Bellamy & Don Amechee were gold.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Wow …. Really.
        So mama is ALLLL that matters. That’s cold.

        Todd be all like :

        KEEPING WITH THE EDDIE M theme …

    • chismosa™ says:

      It has been airing a lot lately — CTA — so is she imitating the early scene before he goes to QUEENS to find his Queen or is she doing the dancing for the finale when the mcdonalds / mcdonnells girl is revealed?

      I know the guy singing was the guy from the start of the movie, the arranged one.

      It was so hard to find videos on YouTube. They must keep close guard on CTA

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Thanks Foxy, I really enjoyed Kandi’s wedding too. I would put it first above all other filmed housewife weddings….and this is coming from someone that was fed up and burnt out from housewife weddings!

  11. Orson says:

    Great recaps, TT and Starzy!

    Maybe it’s me, but here’s how *I* think re-nup negotiations should go: Party One works out, with an attorney, a list of things that should or should not happen if the marriage goes south. This is given to Party Two who goes through the list classifying the items as 1, Okay, I’m cool with this, B, Well, I’d be okay with this if we changed it like this, and III, Nope, I can’t agree to this. Then Party B and their attorney add their own list of items. And the lists go back and forth until, eventually, they NEGOTIATE enough COMPROMISES that they come up with an agreement both sides can live with. And I submit this takes longer than 2 days before the wedding. But I may be wrong about this. What do you ladies (and MTH, of course) think?

    Vicki as a marriage counselor???? Let’s see… she ruined her marriage to Donn. She was the one who encouraged Tamra to divorce Simon. And now she’s going to advise Shannon? And all the OC women (I will not use the word “ladies” in referring to them) seem to have Ph.Ds in “It’s wrong when YOU do the same thing I do, but it’s okay when I do it.”

    And if Bravo and/or the production company really want to rehabilitate Brandi’s rep, they’re going to have to assign someone to ride herd on her. Seriously. They need to change her twitter password to one SHE doesn’t know and seriously censor any tweets she wants to make. My niece got a Bachelor’s in PR and got a job in LA right out of college. After 3 months, she quit PR, got a job as a teaching assistant, and started working on a degree/certification for elementary education. She was MUCH happier as a TA/teacher than as a PR grunt, fixing wealthy peoples problems for them. And she has some cute stories about her 2nd career too. 😀

    • Powell says:

      Orson I’m w/you on the prenup. Why didn’t Kandi have it drawn up 6 mths ago? They both would have had plenty of time to go back and forth w/their attorneys. I think she did it on purpose. IMO Todd should have not signed until he and his attorney and then Kandi’s agreed.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Powell Kandi said she had it done months ago. This was on a WWH a few weeks ago.
        Something related to Todd is what took long

        • Jan (TexasTart) says:

          There was a discrepancy with how it played out on TV and what Kandi said on WWHL. I wanted to point this out in my recap, but decided against it.

          I believe she did run it down to days before the wedding and Todd had waited for her to produce it before hiring his attorney….which was a big mistake on this part, but all the same, it was not ready a month prior IMO.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Thanks Tarts — interesting – so Kandi was (or they both) decided for the show to make it like Todd took it down to the last second. Gotcha.

            Exec producers those two …..

            I saw “Kandi koated (?) entertainment” come up at the end of the show.

            You know where the Emmy winners like Shed, Sirens, Evolution media splash out their names. 👿 🙄

        • Orson says:

          chismosa, she was just saying that all the wedding drama we’re seeing now took place months ago.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Oh I could have sworn I heard her explaining to Andy exactly why she gave him the draft of the prenup so late. I could have SWORN!
            For someone so successful I don’t understand her time management issues.

            Because he seemed to be like “sweetie, that seemed last minute ”
            Really ….. Huh

            • Powell says:

              Chismosa I don’t understand her time management skills either. We’ve seen her be late to do many events w/the ladies which is totally wrong, but I can see her being late for those goober heads but having legal docs for her wedding left so late doesn’t mak sense.

    • Powell says:

      I know Orson. Vicki Gunvalson, AAI, PhD, LMFT, PAIN, IN, THE, ASS 😉
      I bet there have been PR people that are tired of advising her on how to act. Many have probably given up.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Hi Orson, I agree with it all!

  12. boston02127 says:

    Exit~~~~~I’m glad Kitty is home. I hope all goes well from here.

    • Exit4 says:

      Thanks. We’ll do what we can for her until we can’t do anything more. She’ll let us know when it’s time.

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        It’s tough, but sounds like you have had options and have had the time to sort it all out. Sabrina is fortunate to have such a caring, loving family. ((Exit))

      • chismosa™ says:

        Exit SO happy to hear. Keep us posted and I hope she’s feeling good, as best as she can poor thing.

  13. boston02127 says:

    Happy Birthday Chismosa! and Happy Birthday IowaGirl! :

    I hope you both have a great day!

  14. boston02127 says:

    Thanks for the great blog! 🙂

    My computer went out in the middle of the OC, Comcast just came and fixed everything. (phone, tv, comp) Pain in the neck.

    • Powell says:

      Whewww! Not that you couldn’t watch OC but that you couldn’t watch anything. Glad you’re back up. 👍👍📺

  15. Exit4 says:

    Happy Birthday Chismosa!!! 🍻🍸🍹🍷🎈🎂

  16. shamrockblonde says:

    ooooh look! Vicki got her new TammySue – the old one seemed not to need her as much any more so a new version was needed and Shannon fit the bill! whoo bloody hooo!

    Jack? when you are done saving the world can you come rescue me from these alleged ladies? please?

  17. AZGirl says:

    Happy Birthday Chimosa and Iowa Girl

    TT – What happened ? Are you and puppy sick or injured? Get well soon 😛

  22. Dwight Schrute says:

    The problem with her Heatherness, (okay, one of many problems) is she thinks she’s above it all and can’t learn from her mistakes. She gets indignant at perceived slights (the bow on the cake) yet tells the bronco guy to turn the speed up on Tamra.

    I have a huge problem in that when she learned about David’s email she had just apologized 5 minutes before about going to Eddie about something Tamara told told her in confidence. Did she learn? No. Less than 30 minutes later she’s doing the same thing to Shannon, spilling her dirty laundry. This is the same woman who got upset about her husband admitting they once discussed the “D – word” but is airing someone else’s dirty laundry.

    I recall something about glass houses, Heather, hope your dog urined rental isn’t made of glass.

    • iceNfire says:

      I agree about Heather but Shannon is just setting herself up. Didn’t she say that she usually doesn’t warm up to people quickly but she felt like Tamra was a kindred spirit? Now she is doing the same with Icki. It’s almost like in her head she imagines herself to be a certain way but in reality she isn’t like that at all. Her husband can’t even join in the singing without a snide remark for Shannon. Hell the guy can’t even eat chips and salsa in peace …..

      • Powell says:

        HA Ice! Nope the poor guy can’t even eat chips and salsa w/o getting a smart remark back from Shannon.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Great post, Dwight. Miss Heatherness was on WWHL last night and she explained that she felt those were the ladies’ storylines, thus she didn’t think she was revealing anything that wasn’t already going to air on national television. I have to agree that is a valid point! However, Miss Heatherness was not in charge of production and editing, so she would have been assuming everything she said would play out on TV.

      • Powell says:

        TexasTart to me that’s just an excuse. She’s not getting along w/Shannon and Shannon doesn’t even know Heather’s friends, and Heather opens her trap because the viewers were going to be privy to it anyway? Again if it was done to her her head would explode and she would have lectured whoever said the info to no end. I’m sure she’s taught her kids the golden rule. Why do things not apply to Heather?

    • Powell says:

      Right Dwight. If she was going to say anything all she needed to say was Shannon is not herself. If anyone had blabbed info about her and Terry she would have gone ballistic.

  23. auroracooper says:

    Thank you for the recaps. Superb! Stars I have to share with you my hubby’s reaction to Heather and the rental/dog training. He went ballistic and told me how he always thought Heather was a witch with a capital B but her comment last night proved it to him. I couldn’t stop laughing at his reaction he even tried calling into WWHL, seriously. Anyway, I hope everyone out there in computer land is staying cool and healthy.

  24. amylowblow says:

    Vicky never should have divorced Don. I see a lot of her comments are full of regretting that decision. He was a decent hard working guy who had helped her raise the kids for years. Brooks is a creepy guy with a dark past who is a point of contention with her children. I do think part of her decision had a lt to do with Tamra leaving Simon. Vicky fell into the grass is greener on the other side mode but Don was a good man and so far I haven’t seen anything but a new lonely and aggravated Vicky. Her love life would have been happy if she would have appreciated what she had in Don. I feel sad for her.

    Long time, no post! Hope everyone is well!

    This past weekend I went GEOCACHING!!! Isn’t that funny! Well, despite what these Rhony’s said in last week’s epi – it was fun!!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Hey Boo-how you doin’? I miss you!! Hope all is well!!
      My girls have gone geocaching with my uncle a few years ago-my older loved the whole thing but my little one was not impressed with the “treasure”…she was expecting diamonds I think!!! Hahaha -typical Maggie!!!

      • Boobah says:

        Jill!! I’m good! How are you?! Miss you too!! I read as often as possible to keep up!

        Maggie is right – the treasure sucks, but it was fun! Omg – your girls are soooo funny. I have come to love your stories about them!

    • T-Rex says:

      BOOBAH! I am a LONG TIME Geocacher, and I am so GLAD you had fun. You need to join the Facebook group Geocaching For Everyone, it’s a great group of folks and the group is from everywhere around the world!

        T-Rex – Thanks you – I just might do that. I appreciate the heads-up! So cool that you”ve been doing it for a while. This weekend was my 1st and it was hysterical!
        PS – You have been in my thoughts and prayers. You kick the dreadful you-know-whats’ ASS! oxox

    • Powell says:

      Hey Boobah. Miss you lady. I hope you’re having a great summer.

      • Boobah says:

        Hey there, Powell! Miss you too!!!! My summer is going well so far. I hope the same for you. I’m sorry you’ve been having migraines. 😦 Hope they stop!

    Yes Josh is an asshole. But what is with Kristen. I had 2 kids 13 months apart and worked 3 jobs and dinner was on the table. WTF does she do all day?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      She practices whining in the mirror so when Josh gets home she’s sure she look preeeettttyyyy while doing it!!!

    • mrs peabody says:

      She’s very needy and I still don’t like her, in fact I like her the least of all of them.

    • Powell says:

      AZGirl I don’t get it. She’s a working model but it seems like maybe it’s a few times a year. Her son is in school and her daughter does physical therapy a few days a week. The majority of moms work hard even if it’s not outside the home so I don’t get her not having dinner ready when Josh gets home. Hell she can do crock pot dinners.

      • AZGirl says:

        A lot of women of her generation do not know how to cook. I know many of the girls my son’s are friends with do not know how to cook. Fortunately Second Born is a Sous chef and First Born is a good cook.

  35. AZGirl says:

    Kristen is making an effort and Josh just does not get it. I think Josh is on supplements and I have said before you don’t get a body like his not spending 2 to 3 hours in the gym a day. I hate guys like this. Really.

  36. AZGirl says:

    OMG Josh Flagg

  37. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Ramona is totally making up for that nasty trick Luann played on her with the wine last season-payback is a real ramona coaster!!!!!

  38. AZGirl says:

    dear god shoot me.

    I don’t watch OC-but I read the recaps and comments. Over in the FB group someone made a really good point about Heather and the dog. This person adopts shelter dogs and works with animal organizations, so I’ll trust her POV. She said it’s wiser and recommended that if there is a dog allergy (I’ll give Heather the benefit if the doubt on this) to not adopt a shelter dog and go to a breeder. Because if you can’t be 100% sure it’s a hypoallergenic dog-and you can’t always with a rescue-the dog will end up back in the shelter and have to go through the adoption process all over again. Which isn’t fair to the dog. I can agree with that.

    As for her house? Maybe not ruining the floors-she’s not Brandi-maybe she doesn’t want to ruin her brand new grass! Which makes no sense because it will need to be retrained anyway-and unless they give it a specific pee zone-she’ll have the same issue!

    Am I the only one wondering if Mario was really singing to the slut pig he cheated with? This is the first time I remember seeung Mario snap at Ramona.

    • catmom1 says:

      I wondered the same thing Sus.

      • cusi77 says:

        Same thought here… He was singing like an in loved man. Ramona was not nice during that party but she was very touched when Mario was singing… I think that was the time when Mario was seriously involved with the girl… someone knows if the Singers are together again?

  41. Boobah says:

    That was a hot mess!! WTH happened to this show!?!?

  42. JumpTheShark says:

    I only caught the last 5 minutes of RHNY, but I thought I heard Sonja say in TH that she’s heard Mario sing in the shower…

    • catmom1 says:

      That’s exactly what I heard. Then wondered where Sonja was to hear Mario in the shower.

    World cup news. Germany beat Brazil 7-1. That is one of the worst soccer beatings I have ever seen. Rachel Maddow will be on WWHL tonight.

    I am really ticked off at KatieCat. I asked her to do 3 chores for me yesterday.

    1. Hold down the blanket on Roomie’s bed so it doesn’t float away.
    B. Take the clean dishes out of the dishwasher and put them in the cabinet where they belong.
    iii. Move my barbells from the basement to the attic.

    Damned lazy cat fell asleep before she was even half way through task 1. 😡

    Does Carol on NY remind any one of Annabelle on London Ladies?

    • cusi77 says:

      Not to me… I am enjoying the Ladies of London! Poor Annabelle… looked really hurt!

      In what aspect Carol reminds you Annabelle?
