S6E19 “There’s Something About Harry”

By realhousewifeofaiken

Carole’s about to celebrate her 50th birthday and the theme is Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil meets the Garden of Eden.  This might be her way of telling us that she’s dated Kevin Spacey or Clint Eastwood or both.  She’s dated and broken up with so many men that her next writing assignment should be a collaboration with Taylor Swift.  It takes a village to put this party together, so assistants Katie and Eric, along with Heather, are tackling her laundry lists of wants, needs and desires – white lights, chandeliers, shiny red apples, psychics, snake handlers, butterflies, a fog machine, Lady Chablis and the entire dance troupe from Kandi Burruss’s wedding.

Sonja and Harry believe that their relationship has grown to the point where they should raise a puppy together.  It’s a better idea than a baby.

What we’ve got here is …  failure to communicate

Josh Taekman, Kristen Taekman

Kristen and Josh are trying to iron out some of the problem they’re experiencing in their marriage.   The therapist asks them to talk about the good and the bad things as they see them but these two aren’t even speaking the same language.  He wants her to understand that his business is important and she wants him to see that she’s important.  They never discussed having children until she was pregnant, twice.  She doesn’t even think that he loves her.  Communication is everything but Kristen and Josh just can’t figure out how to do that.   If it’s about understanding each of their disparate positions, then maybe they should trade places for a week.

Avery’s packing for college and is having a panic attack because her mother is having a panic attack.  Ramona, the zen master, gives her something breathing exercises to do, hoping that they’ll calm her down.  Breathe in for four, hold for four, breathe out for six hold for two.  It’s better than screaming at her to take a Xanax and calm down.  I tried to follow Ramona’s instructions but ended up hyperventilating, passing out and having to hit rewind when I came to.   As they’re going to the airport, Ramona cries and tells Mario that the house is going to be too quiet.  Avery jumps out of the cab and LaGuardia and barely looks back.

The devil’s in the tarot cards

Sonja’s having dinner with a psychic, Thomas John.  Instead of ordering appetizers,m he does a tarot card reading and tells Sonja that there’s a devil in her life.  The devil has brown hair, but he doesn’t say whether it’s Carole, Heather, LuAnn or a lawyer from Hannibal pictures.  Mr. John may be a psychic in training because he also tells Sonja that her money is only going to grow and her situation with her home will improve.   Sonja believes every word, because she’s Sonja.

When Harry met Sonja – and LuAnn

Heather is hard at work, making Carole’s dream of a great party become a reality.   The snake handler is a no-go because health codes prohibit live snakes in restaurants.  Something like that could keep any number of guests from gaining entry, too.  Aviva isn’t invited.  Her invitation is being held until the next party , when the theme will be Midnight in the Garden of Evil and Evil.   Carole shows up early to oversee what Heather already has well in hand.  Finding there’s really nothing to do, she treats herself and some of the others to a manicure.Carole Radziwill

The guests begin to arrive, dressed to the nines, with some wearing masks.  Mario asks LuAnn where Jacques is and LuAnn explains that they’ve parted ways.  The guest of honor makes her entrance and looks beautiful in a long red dress.  LuAnn begins to tell Carole and Kristen all about her heartbreaking breakup with Jacques.  In her talking head, she says that she has no idea what happened.  Pirates happened, LuAnn – some low-rent, Johnny Depp wannbe pirates.   She starts to cry and apologizes to Carole for it but Carole tells her “It’s my party and you can cry if you want to.”

Sonja and Harry are talking about their relationship under LuAnn’s watchful eye.  Harry wants to be with Sonja but she would like to know a little more before she’s convinced as to his intentions.   They kiss and kiss some more.  Harry says that he wants to take it to another level and that he’s serious about his feelings for Sonja.  He then gives her a ring – not an engagement ring, more like a “see, I’m serious, but not serious enough to propose marriage” ring.  He then says that he loves her and care for her.Heather Thomson

Heather gives a toast to Carole which is actually an email Carole had sent her about what she did and did not want in a toast.  There are explicit instructions about not mentioning Aerosmith.   No sooner does the toast end and the festivities begin,  Ramona and Sonja are squirreled in a corner, gossiping about LuAnn and Jacques.  Sonja is upset that LuAnn didn’t tell her about their breakup and that she had to hear it at the party, and confronts LuAnn with her complaints.  She though that LuAnn was a better friend than that, but that was the same problem LuAnn had with Sonja during their picnic in Central Park.  To her credit, LuAnn correctly points out that only Sonja could make their breakup all about her.

Heather and LuAnn sing a couple of songs about Carole which Ramona thinks is stupid.  She thinks that Tony Bennett or P Diddy should have been there to perform given all the celebrities both Carole and Heather know.  It’s safe to assume that if Mario had been the entertainment, Ramona would have been much happier and the celebrity factor would have been a non-factor.

Sonja and Ramona meet up again to talk about Harry and the ring.  Sonja says that she’s scared by his gesture and doesn’t understand what it really means.  She tells Ramona that she took the ring off and put it in her purse.   Harry, however, is now chatting it up with LuAnn.  When Sonja goes in search of Harry, he’s already left, presumably with LuAnn.LuAnn de Lesseps

Aviva made a very brief appearance during this episode.  She was at A Step Ahead with Heather Abbot, a young woman who made the decision to have her leg amputated as a result of the injuries she suffered during the Boston bombing.  Her prosthetic leg is going to be made and given to her at no cost to her.  Where has this Aviva been all season?Aviva Drescher

Next week is the season finale and the episode in which a prosthetic leg is seen lying on the ground.  This is what the Housewives’ franchise has become, with the most anticipated scene of the season involving a leg toss.

S1E7  “I’ve Been To London To Visit The Queen”

  By HydrangeaHussy

Annabelle is still recovering at Slade Farm, where she will be for 4 weeks.  Caroline arrives to visit with gifts – a bunch of DVD’s and a TV to watch them on.  My friends wouldn’t show up with TV’s if I was injured, maybe I need new friends?  Annabelle refuses to feel sorry for herself and has checked out of the hospital to recover at home.  Caroline is impressed with Annabelle’s courage – she would still be at the hospital, as would I.  I am really impressed with Annabelle.  She could be lying in bed, feeling sorry for herself, but she seems determined to recover as quickly as possible.  They make their way into the living room and Caroline tells Annabelle about the “going-away” party that Noelle and Marissa are throwing for Caprice.  Annabelle thinks that there is a power struggle between the two.  She advises Caroline to take the high road.  I love that Annabelle can stay the truth and give good advice, without being harsh.  Caroline isn’t sure that she can take the high road.  I’m still trying to figure out if this fight is truly about a baby shower or if there is something deeper going on.  I understand feeling hurt if a friend declines a shower, but this seems like it may be about something more than just a shower.  Annabelle thinks that it may be about how close Caroline has become to the Americans so quickly.  Caroline is trying to remember that she isn’t the norm because she doesn’t let her emotions show.  I really like seeing the softer side of Caroline.  Just when you start to think she’s cold, she surprises with deep emotions.

LOL S1E7_1Caprice receives an email that her surrogate has begun to dilate.  Ty already has children, so he’s more calm about it.  He is so chill, which is good for Caprice.  I think that will help keep her from completely freaking out.  He advises that they keep their passports on hand and wait to see what happens.  They call the surrogate to get more information.  She tells Caprice that she will probably not give birth for a few more weeks.  Caprice offers to come if she is needed, but the surrogate encourages her to wait.  It’s nice that Caprice has a relationship with her surrogate, who can help calm the first-time mom.

Rania, Caroline’s assistant, is reviewing Caroline’s schedule with her.  Caroline is having a dinner party for the girls.  She knows exactly what she wants, who to invite, and how it should run.  Of course Caroline would be completely hands-on and in-control of a dinner party, just like she is in everything.  She will invite Annabelle, even though she knows that Annabelle won’t be able to attend.  She will also invite Caprice, because she was raised not to ostracize or exclude anyone.  Caroline wants to find someone to teach British etiquette to Juliet and Noelle.  She wants them to brush up on their social skills before her dinner because they didn’t display good manners at Mapperton.  “I want to have a My Fair Lady moment.”

Caprice picks Julie up to visit Annabelle.  She is very pregnant and miserable.  She has one more week in England before she flies to the US to be with her surrogate for the birth and to have her own baby.  Annabelle is looking on the positive side – she had the 2nd worst accident she could have, but at least it wasn’t the worst.  I’m not sure that I could be so positive.  Again, I’m super impressed with Annabelle.  She is such a strong and amazing woman.  Caprice tells Annabelle about Caroline’s dinner.  She found it peculiar that Caroline invited her.  She would not invite someone that she is fighting with to a dinner.  Annabelle tells Caprice pretty much the same thing that she told Caroline – take the high road, kiss and make up.  Caprice is stressed about the surrogate dilating, giving birth on her own, and becoming a mom to two boys.  Annabelle has a very quiet way of reassuring her friend.  She advises Caprice to mend her relationship with Caroline before she leaves for the US.

LOL S1E7_2Caroline takes Juliet and Noelle for an etiquette class with Rosemary, who is described as a “battle-ax.”  Caroline told Noelle that she wanted to brush up on her own etiquette, but Noelle realizes that the issue is her and Juliet.  Rosemary is a tough cookie!  She immediately calls Noelle for sitting before being invited and for putting her arms on the table.  Juliet is late, immediately making a bad impression.  She tells Juliet that they are there to learn manners, so they don’t behave like they did at Mapperton.  I agree that neither lady had perfect table manners, but it wasn’t horrific.  They begin with soup.  Noelle takes a bite…incorrectly.  She is told to put her spoon down if you’re talking.  Noelle has been to aristocratic, fancy dinners and people don’t care this much about table manners and etiquette.  I’m not sure about that, Lord Sandwich didn’t seem particularly impressed with the leaving for a smoke and the passing of food around.  Juliet slurps a noodle.  Caroline is loving this!  She brings up the food exchange at Mapperton.  Juliet expected to be offered options.  I can understand having options if you know in advance that someone doesn’t eat meat, but you can’t be expected to have a million options – a dinner party isn’t like going to a restaurant.  Noelle thinks saying “please” and “thank you” are enough manners.  Caroline doesn’t believe in public displays of emotion.  Juliet thinks honesty is the most real, she thinks holding something in until you’re alone is rude and disrespectful.  Rosemary advises her to ask for a private word if you’re upset about something.  Caroline doesn’t think you should “stand like a fishwife in the middle of the street and air your dirty laundry.”  Juliet seems to think that they’re telling her to just drop it if she’s upset.  Actually, they’re just telling you not to make a scene in the middle of a party, which I completely agree with.  There is no reason to cause a scene when you can deal with it later, behind closed doors!  Caroline tells her that airing it in public makes other people uncomfortable.  Juliet is starting to realize that she needs to adapt to the British way.

LOL S1E7_3Caprice is feeling very alone and overwhelmed.  She calls Julie to vent.  She has two babies on the way, is trying to plan a trip to the US, and is about to shoot a major campaign.  She doesn’t feel mentally prepared to deal with all of this.  I can’t imagine being pregnant and having to worry not only about yourself, but about another woman who is carrying your child.  Julie advises her to be selfish and spend some time on herself during this time.  I am loving Julie, she seems like such a supportive friend!

Noelle is getting ready to meet the girls out to celebrate Marissa’s new citizenship.  She is feeling put in the middle of Caroline and Caprice, especially with the going-away party.  It’s hard to be friends with each of them.  It is hard to be in the middle, but Noelle is kind of putting herself in that position.  Caroline is fond of Juliet, she says that Juliet is like an over-excited child.  The two together crack me up.

LOL S1E7_4They go to the Wellington, where Caroline knows the owner.  The girls get him to talk about the young Caroline.  He laughs and says that she was often truant from school and wore her mother’s high heels.  Haha!  I can kind of see Caroline as a wild child, lol.  They go downstairs to see some of the memorabilia that has been collected there.  It’s pretty cool to see a place with such history.  Noelle brings up the going-away party.  Caroline asks for clarification as to what kind of party it is.  They tell her that they won’t be playing baby shower games, but just saying goodbye.  If someone wants to bring a gift, they can.  Caroline thinks that it’s obviously a baby-shower.  It is pretty clear that this is a shower.  Juliet is confused as to why Marissa and Noelle are planning the party when Caroline obviously knows her best.  Juliet is obviously taking Caroline’s side, but really needs to stay out of it.  Caroline says that Noelle would have read-up on Caprice by now, implying that she flip-flops friends.  Just a little shade thrown there!  But, Caroline is kind of right, Noelle seems to be playing both sides.  Marissa thinks that becoming a mom is big deal and she wants to celebrate that.  She says that Juliet obviously isn’t planning one, Caroline’s didn’t work out, so she’s throwing one.  Juliet still doesn’t understand.  Marissa stands up for herself, telling Juliet that if she doesn’t want to come, she doesn’t have to.  Good for her!

LOL S1E7_5Caprice is shooting the first By Caprice campaign with a model other than herself.  She caught some flack on Twitter about modeling for herself, but I would model my own line if I had Caprice’s body!  She’s really nervous about getting the right shots.  She knows exactly what she wants and needs for her brand.  She is very hands-on during the shoot, directing the hair and amount of cleavage.  Once they get the hair right, the model looks amazing and Caprice loves the shots.  She looks stunning in the final shots!  Caprice is glad that she was there to supervise.  After the shoot, Noelle arrives.  She feels that Caprice has done everything on her own as well and feels a kinship with her.  I think that Noelle wants to be Caprice in a few years.  The problem is that Caprice gets really good press, while Noelle gets press mostly because of Scot’s drama.  She has to find a way to separate herself from that and focus on her business ventures, whatever those are.  I’m not sure exactly what it is that Noelle does.  Noelle really wants Caprice to come to the dinner at Caroline’s.  Caprice tells Noelle that her surrogate is dilating, so she has to leave immediately and doesn’t even have the time for her own party.  Noelle tells Caprice that Caroline was giving her a hard time about the shower.  Uh oh.  Noelle thought Caprice would commiserate on how mean Caroline can be, but Caprice is very upset.  Did Noelle really think that Caprice would take it that well.  Caprice feels bad that Noelle is getting bullied because of her.  She decides to attend the dinner to sort things out with Caroline before she leaves.  Noelle is concerned that Caprice is putting too much stress on herself and that attending the party will not go well.  She is trying to CYA, big-time.

This was filmed last summer, so Prince George hasn’t been born yet.  Noelle doesn’t realize that all the excitement going on, but Marissa is super excited.  Marissa feels like it’s a girl, that way she can marry Marissa’s son, lol.  I absolutely love how much Marissa puts into everything she does and truly embraces becoming British!  Once she decides to do something, she is all in!

It’s the day of Caroline’s dinner party.  She is supervising the readying of everything.  Her chef is preparing traditional English food – salmon, chicken and bell peppers for the vegans.  Caroline wants everyone to go away satisfied, so the food is critical.  She walks the staff through greeting her guests and serving the dinner.  She does not accept anything going wrong at one of her parties.  Caroline is a true perfectionist.  She is glad that Caprice is big enough to attend, though she says that she wouldn’t attend if it was her.  Marissa rides with Juliet and Noelle.  Noelle is on edge because she doesn’t want to be in the middle of Caroline and Caprice.  She looks like she might have been drinking already.  In the car, Noelle opens the bottle of champagne that she was bringing for Caroline.  She says that she’ll just tell Caroline that they already drank it.  If I were her, I wouldn’t mention it at all – just pretend like you didn’t intend to bring anything.  They discuss the photo-shoot.  Noelle tells the girls that Caprice is exhausted and stressed, and that she didn’t realize how bad the drama with Caroline is.  Juliet thinks that Noelle is stirring the pot by telling each lady what they want to hear and what the other says.  I have to agree with her, she should have stayed out of it.

LOL S1E7_6Julie is the first to arrive.  Two of Caroline’s other friends arrive.  The Americans arrive next.  The ladies have a glass of champagne on the terrace.  Caroline doesn’t do anything halfway.  Everything she does is effortlessly perfect, according to Juliet.  Noelle tells Caroline that she brought a bottle of champagne, but they drank it in the car.  Caroline just seems to take every faux pas of the Americans’ in stride.  Caroline can tell that Noelle was drinking before she arrived.  Yeah, it’s pretty obvious.  Caprice is really nervous about going to Caroline’s party.  She hopes that there won’t be any confrontation, but she knows how Caroline can get when she’s on her own turf.  Is this going to be a dinner party from hell?

LOL S1E7_7The ladies sit down for dinner, but Noelle and Julie remain on the side.  They are discussing the Caroline/Caprice situation.  Noelle just can’t help involving everyone!  Julie advises that Noelle isn’t in a good position between Caroline and Caprice.  Very diplomatic!  Caroline notes that something is up with Noelle.  “It sort of reeks of guilt.”  Caroline makes a toast, thanking the ladies for coming all the way out to her house.  Dinner is served by men in black tie and white gloves.  That is my kind of dinner!  I definitely need new friends!  Marissa thinks that Caroline may be showing Caprice what she missed out on by turning down the shower.  A little more shade from Marissa!  Maybe she isn’t as sweet as she appears, lol.  Caprice hasn’t arrived yet.  Noelle leans over to whisper to Marissa about Caprice’s “freak out.”  Not a good idea at the dinner table when you’re trying to stay out things.  All she does is draw more attention to herself.  Next week we’ll see what happens when Caprice arrives.

    Great blogs Empress and HydrangeaHussy! I didn’t get to watch NY, but I caught the final scene when I watched WWHL this morning. They are all wild about Harry – and I think Harry is wild about lots of women 😉

    I like the London ladies. Of course there is the obligatory sh!t st!rrer, the Diva, the oblivious, the good friend, but I don’t care, I really enjoy watching them.

    Happy Hump Day. I hope you are feeling better MTH, taking it easy and doing what you need to so your back above the weather!

    • T-Rex says:

      I don’t get all this storyline fake editing BS this year at all. Harry Dubin is a “playa” always has been, always will be. He has slept with several of these women previously. This fake ring BS is just ludicrous, and why did Bravo even make them do that, because they didn’t do that on their own. I am surprised Harry could keep from laughing during that fake made-up scene. Seriously, then it’s inferred he leaves with the CountlessLu-Man, what a bunch of made up hooey! Harry’s goal in life is apparently schtooping the entire female population of Manhattan from what he has said in the past, as have his numerous paramours, the man has made Page Six so many times he needs to be a contributing editor. Didn’t he even say last year that he couldn’t keep it “in his pants” when we first introduced to him? UGH! I am over Bravo!

  2. T-Rex says:

    Good Morning!

  3. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Happy Hump Day. I hope you don’t get any rain. I’m kinda tired of rain. Just need at least a one day break. :-). Have a great day.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Second straight morning that I awoke to the temps in the 50s. Yes, it’s mid-July and it’s in the 50s. My a/c is so happy! And I’m sleeping so good. Won’t last long though; it never does. Sorry again for all of your rain Powell. Hope you dry out soon.

      I think the Sonja/Luann/Harry storyline is totally contrived (hard to believe, I know). Made up and it’s so uninteresting. RHNY is totally over and not just because it’s the end of the season. Nothing new here, put a fork in it or totally recast it. But I wouldn’t mind if they kept Heather and Carole.

      It’s a great Hump Day here and hope for you as well!

      • Powell says:

        50. We were at 85 when I left work. It felt so nice.
        Andy told Tamra on WWHL that they are paid to be themselves, not bring drama. Huh! Bringing drama is what the franchise has turned into.

  4. T-Rex says:

    Okay, I have a bone to pick about these moronic Ho-wives and their fake psychics! First off the DEVIL card almost never refers to another person, other than the subject being read themselves. So, another bit of Bravo manhandling/editing a situation to fit their storyline. If that reader had any balls or actual talent, or wasn’t straight out of Bravo Casting, they would have immediately told DrunkenSlutLazyAssSonja that her lifestyle is the reason she received the Devil card, it is meant to show that the subject is living a life of greed, avarice, sloth, alcohol/drug abuse, overindulgence in sex, etc. which is EXACTLY how DrunkenSlutLazyAssSonja is living her life right now.

    • Powell says:

      Sonja CAN’T handle the TRUTH! In my Jack Nicholson voice. 😈😇

    • chismosa™ says:

      This psychic is actually very much on the up and up. And in a semi possibly partially sort of legit way like say, John Edwards, vs the Long Island Cheeseball.

      I’ve seen him on other shows; he’s more a medium.

      I liked him on the other stuff i saw him on.

  5. Ok, it is official I am done with RHONY – I tried to watch and fell asleep. Good riddence! I hope everyone has a lovely, peaceful Wednesday!

  6. Powell says:

    Why shouldn’t Caprice be the model for her line? Oprah is the model on the cover of her mag. 👍

    • kendo says:

      Question for the ladies. After seeing the photo shoot and how they pull the straps together in the back to make more cleavage, would you still want to buy her bras? That model was absolutely gorgeous, she knew what Caprice was going for.

      • Powell says:

        Kendo that’s how everything is modeled. They are clothes pinned in the back to fit perfectly. I would buy her bras.

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        Hi Kendo, Caprice had some good pieces but if goes to show you that they’ll manipulate it so that it looks perfect on the model. I just remember that I bought a few clear clips to hide bra straps for certain tops. I guess it could be used for push-up? 🙂

    • MM in OC says:

      My problem with Oprah is that she essentially copied Martha Stewart’s mag, all the way down to the color block in the left hand top corner. I hate Oprah!!

      PS. The Butler sucked.

      • NJBev says:

        omg- I do not agree,
        but I am laughing so hard
        you would never know it!!
        lmao

      • Powell says:

        Like NJ Bev I don’t agree but LOL at you. Oprah used MS s idea, Rosie O’Donnell used MS/Os idea. Rosie’s mag discontinued. MSs mag is on life support. Os still standing. 😀 👍

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        Nooooooo Oprah rocks! I miss her show so much. I never did buy her magazine, though.

  7. Powell says:

    I don’t get Juliet and Marrisa and their rules about table manners and manners in a sense. Whether in the U S or the U K you have manners. You show respect for your host, yourself and other people by having and showing you have manners. 😏

    • shamrockblonde says:

      Powell – totally agree – from a very young age, my sister brother and I were taught about not putting your elbows on the table, sitting up straight, not talking with food in your mouth, or holding a spoon/knife/fork while talking – as were my girls – manners are manners – just be respectful –

      • Powell says:

        Yup me too. I don’t remember it but my mom said she used to take me to restaurants when I was a toddler to teach me table manners.

        • shamrockblonde says:

          YES! – my parents did this as well!
          as did I – worked great! we would get the girls all dressed up in the their Sunday best and go out to a fancy place, and they would be so excited that teaching them manners and how to behave in public was for them, anyway, a bit like learning how to be a princess – which they loved! and it all stuck too!

  8. cusi77 says:

    Good afternoon everyone!

    Great Blogs ladies , HydrangeaHussy and Empress! Thank you very much!

  9. Veena (NMD) says:

    Just emerged from the wilderness http://wp.me/p4kxEH-h6

  10. Shiny says:

    Thanks for the two recaps – fun to read.

    I am really looking forward to the leg throwing on RHoNY.
    Will it be because Aviva’s showing she wasn’t lying about having a fake leg and therefore wasn’t lying about having asthma? (Even though she doesn’t know how or when to use an inhaler.)

    Will it be because she needed something to throw and was in the middle of the room with not even a purse to toss at someone?

    Will it be because she’s got so many special legs that she’s proving she’s so rich she can throw one away?

    Will it be because the toe nail polish came out all wrong?

    Or will it be because she got so drunk that she forgot she was supposed to keep wearing it for the entire party and started to strip.

    Only Bravo knows…..

  11. shamrockblonde says:

    Hahahahaha!!! – that was too funny shiny!! – I vote for all of the above! Every time I hear her start with “let me tell you something….” I know “somethin bad about to happen! ” *nod to Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert song*!

  12. 2Stupid says:

    I just read a blog about JZ on wife swap. It said right out the gate he insulted Jenna’s home. She said having children is overrated about 5 times. When reading the wife manual, she questioned whether she really wanted to do everything herself, or she couldn’t afford help. She swapped with the girl from Blossum that now lives in Nashville. They said that Jenna got Bobby to fingerpaint with his grandchildren and take the trash out. The blogger said JZ was awful. I didn’t see it so I can’t say for sure, but she is good at insulting people.

    • trudie says:

      She was truly insufferable, insulting and beyond rude. I feel bad for Allie, knowing that her mother thinks children are overrated. Allie herself said that they never have family time. What a great mom and role model Jill is.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Whoever wrote that blog you read was right on. Like Trudie said, insufferable, insulting and RUDE!!! This woman needs to remember she married money. She could of very easily have been living in Jenna’s home (or how she put it where the people that works for her has to live).

        She reminded me of why I hate Jill Zarin.

      • Austin says:

        Beyond rude pretty much sums it up. I was raised that one doesn’t talk about one’s wealth, or really anything to do with money, and that one should never comment on another person’s financial situation. Jill just acted like a jerk, complaining over and over, “Why don’t they hire *people* to do this?” and commenting, when driving into the neighborhood of her new “husband”, something along the lines of, “Well, the people that work for us [the “help”] have to live somewhere and they probably live here”.

        Now I remember why I hate Jill Zarin.

    • Powell says:

      2Stupid I knew it was going to be a disaster. I didn’t watch, had no intentions. Why does JZ think she’s all that and a bag of chips? 😉

    • T-Rex says:

      Well her first showing of being insufferable was renting a house she does not plan to buy instead of using her very small apartment in NYC which they do own, to show her superiority, of course all fake. Her whole live is now about being a FAKE, all to be a FameWhore!

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Can I get a link to the blog?

    • Hi 2Stupid, I caught it last night. JZ was an epic bitch! Such a snob and basically said everything that she was thinking. She called Jenna’s home a starter home, and looks like where JZ’s workers would live—something like that. Bobby and Ali were not bad at all!! And it is all JZ. JZ is just really pretentious and such a snob.

      • vilzvet says:

        This was Celebrity Wife Swap? I must try to find…

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          Yes, it was celebrity wife swap. People with more money have appeared and have never acted like this. I think she’s trying to get attention to get her old job back.

  13. Prince Ali says:

    This is off-topic for today’s blog but,
    The house MeGo and Joe are living in seems very non-fancy for their taste. It is odd that they would go from their mansion to that unless there is more to the story,

    • MelTheHound says:

      There always is more to the story with them. I still cannot stand the sight of that woman’s face or the sound of her voice..

    • plainviewsue says:

      Supposedly Joey is building their dream house. I’ll believe that when I see it.

      • boston02127 says:

        I also read they are in the rental because Joe is building their dream house. But what I don’t understand is the fact that they (he) is changing job professions too. He’s going from builder (I assume it’s not paying well or no work) to trash man. Coinkydink????

        • Powell says:

          I hope he gave Joe his pics back.

        • Austin says:

          Back when I was growing up across the river in Pennsylvania, pretty much all of the waste management business in NJ was “connected”. Is that still the case?

          • T-Rex says:

            Austin, this is what I had heard as well. I wonder if it’s still the case, probably is, it’s a very lucrative business

      • Powell says:

        Wasn’t that their dream house?

      • T-Rex says:

        PVS – I am with you on this. The MEGO’s know that they are also probably in the spotlight with the government with all of their spending and probable “illegal”(allegedly) real estate transactions so they probably have to be very careful not to do anything that the government could use to investigate them. They also probably don’t have the money to build anything until they get rid of that albatross of a house they used to live in.

  14. MelTheHound says:

    After 4 years of watching this show, there has been no denying that it becomes dumber and dumber by the week. I for one, no longer even enjoy discussing them. I cannot stomach another kid going to college, doing so doesn’t make them special, to me. I don’t care about them learning to drive so they can get around the big bad city to and fro their big fancy apartments. I don’t need to watch their mommies get their bits waxed and bleached and fat relocated on their bodies in order to try and look like their once pre-pubecant daughters.. I don’t need to know that Sonja once again forgot to put on underwear. Commitment to commit… Promise rings… What are these assholes, HS Juniors? Who does that? Absolutely moronic.. After all that, he left with Luann… Most insultiung of all, no one told Ramona that Lu and Jack broke up Oh the horror!

    Then I was assulted with RHOC for a few minutes as we heard about how much grifter brooks loves Vickie’s Vagina.. I know WAY more about these women than I care to know or ever did care to know…. These shows use to be fun, had Some class… No more… I don’t know if I can anymore.

    • Powell says:

      I feel ya MTH. 🙂

    • mrs peabody says:

      I think these shows are insulting to women just as much as the WWHL is and the longer it goes on the grosser they become. Who says on national tv their girlfriends best part is her vagina. There was no reason for bravo to show that. Who goes around stirring up trouble the way these women do, again no reason to act like that. It’s sad to think how far down in the gutter these shows have dropped. I don’t even watch them when they first run anymore the way I used to, I dvr them and then watch them later. Andy and his gang have really ruined a great idea. Sad but true

      • mrs peabody says:

        And another thing why aren’t these women required as part of their job to blog and why can’t we get on their and give out views of their disgusting behavior.

      • MelTheHound says:

        These shows certainly do not paint women in a good light..

      • Austin says:

        Brooks is disgusting. I don’t know a decent man who would make such a comment.

    • Jules says:

      Yes, yes yes. You are spot on. I gave up cable in April. Was only keeping it to watch Bravo and then the show just became scripted stupid. I am forever grateful for everyone that blog here. The writing is soooo fabulously entertaining.

      • JumpTheShark says:

        I LOVE Lynnfam, but the HW shows make me feel sad. What began as a cheap-to-produce soap opera, has devolved into an intellectual and moral sludge. Since it is obviously scripted, can’t they hire some good writers, better actors, and PLEASE some attractive and interesting men. The men are all creepy slime-balls (IMO).

        • iceNfire says:

          I have wwhl on auto record just incase someone good might be on. This week I have noticed that Andy starts each show in celebration of his wwhl five year anniversary but how is this different from any of the last five years with Andy celebrating himself and joyfully laughing at the foolish women of bravo?

      • chismosa™ says:

        Jules yes the HWs shows have devolved big time but call me crazy I’m loving that Crowns show.
        Reminds me of the glory days of harmless bravo fun.

    • Austin says:

      It was Sonja who was moaning that no one told her about LuMann’s and Jacques’ breakup, not Ramona. But I agree with everything else you wrote.

      • MelTheHound says:

        I would have bet money it was Mona but considering the she snake left the way she did, no shock

      I agree!

        She did look as good as I’ve ever seen her look. With all the money she spends on the effort, she should look good, though.

    I would really appreciate an update- I will make sure to
    check HERE in the am.
    Thanks all-

      Hi Bev! MTH posted a few days ago he is under the weather. I haven’t seen anything after. Blog isn’t the same without Mel, but I see he is posting today, so I hope he is feeling better.

    • MelTheHound says:

      Hello… Feeling better but not really enough to give a shit or more about housewives.. Maybe in weeks to come 😉

  18. chismosa™ says:

    Luann complains that Sonja made the party about her when it was LULU making it about LOUMAN!
    With her new besties Heather and Carole.
    Give me a FB. can’t stand Lou.

    Heather for all your perfect attributes and inability to do anything wrong and not perfectly, you’re judging Lu very badly! Run girl run. You in danger girl.

    • Powell says:

      Really it wasn’t the time & place to mention it. Lu should have just said he couldn’t make it. But since she did Sonja had no right to be mad Lu didn’t tell her. Lu’s been mad at her for the stupid facialist comments & if Self Absorbed Sonja would have realized it, that is why Lu was so mad at her. She & Ross had already broken up by the trip time & other men was probably the catalyst. Rumors going around about her and men & Ross was tired of it. Why would Lu call Sonja & confide in her when Sonja thought it was so funny? 😒 🔫

      • chismosa™ says:

        Well because Lu cried to Sonja about how she’s known her longer than any of the other ladies and she’s upset they’re not as close.

        Apparently Harry and Lu tweeted about how they didn’t leave together and it was edited to look that way.

        Roll my eyes.
        🙄

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I’m not a Lu fan either Chis; never have been and never will be. She’s fake and full of it! And I’m liking on Heather, but she does need to get away from LooLoo.

  19. ladebra says:

    I’ve been waiting for this one! … And there was apparently drama with JZ, look on Alex’s TL. I don’t really care enough about JZ to check any further lol

    • chismosa™ says:

      Ooooooh have to check!

      I thought Alex was at some event with JZ recently ???

      I started the celebrity WS show – does Jill own the house ?
      I’m looking for TREX’s link of the house on the market.

      Is she on the ocean? It seemed bay-like (i.e. cheaper)

      I need full attention to watch that.

      • T-Rex says:

        The house is on an inlet, not the ocean. TheLunaticZarin does NOT own the house, the owner is named Giglio and he is the guy who started the For Sale by Owner company. His cousin is a contractor and did the upgrades on the home a few years ago. TheLunaticZarin seems to have rented the house to get her gig on the Wife Swap show and for the summer season. The house as of today is still as FOR SALE by the actual owner of the house.

        • So did Jill get around this truth by calling her “home”….as opposed to “house” I watched most the the swap show and she is delusional. She acts like she is a descendent of old money…she is gauche.

        • chismosa™ says:

          TRex meant to say thank you for the 411 on the house.

          With all the comments about the episode I have to watch phone in hand to follow along and analyze

  20. ladebra says:

    Potential spoiler alert! I say that because I came to this conclusion also. It will be interesting to see if it’s true whenever we get those last books ….

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

      It’s kind of sad that this blogger a) finally just came to this revelation and b) can’t put a question together

      The book series is called A Song of Ice and Fire, so not only would you conclude that Jon Snow is a Stark and a Targaeryan, you would also realize he is the central star of the series. Ned Stark never called Jon his son.

      • T-Rex says:

        I always figured or more like HOPED Jon Snow would be found out to be the son of Ned’s dead sister Lyanna and Rhaegar. I also hoped that she wasn’t really kidnapped but ran away with Rhaegar to get away from marrying Robert Baratheon and because she loved him. We will see what George RR Martin writes about this in the future.

            LOVE IT! Oh and GO DRAGONS we need MORE DRAGONS! I want to now see the Dragonlance Chronicles now made into a show!

LOTS of Dragons in those books, it’s just loaded up with Dragons!

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

    What’s up peeps? I’m occasionally catching a show recap, and haven’t watched Bravo in forever until the first episode of Jersey. I had to give the show a chance without the Manzoid-jackaloony-Wakile nonsense. An episode without those stupid harpies, nice. I’m still annoyed MeGo and graffiti head are still on my screen. I like the twins and I think I like Amber but she talks too much. It’s awkward. So sad to watch Gia crumble. I know legally teresa has to stick by her story of innocence, and I know she needs the income, but really, she should have kept the cameras away.

    I hope Jeff gets better soon, and Veena is have a fantastic trip. Lots of love to you ladies and gentlemen. I need to go back into hiding. New job responsibilities means very little fun time these days.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Reebs how you been girl!!??

      Hope you’re well, sorry we don’t hear from you that often anymore.
      I can’t get over how much this actor ^^^^^ who plays such a big GOT role looks exactly like the boyfriend of one of the gals on hbo’s Girls. He left this last season

  24. HuskerHuny says:

    Good morning y’all although it’s probably afternoon for some of you!

    When I turn my TV in my bedroom on, it automatically comes on to Bravo. When I turned it on yesterday late afternoon, I didn’t get a picture or audio. So I turned it to the digital channel and the same thing happened. I then went out to my living room TV, tried those two channels and the same thing happened, but when I went to the HD channel, I got a picture and audio. Did anyone else have this issue last night or is my TV possessed by housewives past? I blame Time Warner – the devils that they are.

    It’s a beeyoutiful day in my neighborhood and I hope it is in yours as well.

    reading all this Jill Z stuff reminds me – ……………
    JILL WHO? ahahahahahaha!!!! – utterly pathetic –

  26. I Need A Life! says:

    Hi, Everyone. Pulling weeds all day. What gave me strength was having watched JZ on Wife Swap last night. (I recorded it.) I just hammered those weeds. Pulled them out as though I was pulling Zarin’s hair out. What a stupid woman. “Those who work have to live somewhere.” And Bobby was no better, really. He reminds me of the worst of the worst salesman. Pinky ring sleeze bag.

    Now I know why folks are leaving the Hamptons for the Berkshires. To get away from THEM. Imagine wasting money on fake guests at a weekly party. I’m sure she was expecting a huge star to exchange lives with. When she realized who it was…who was she anyway?….I don’t care….you could see Jill’s face just drop. “I’m not even a D list celebrity.”

    I’ve always been a fan of hers, but now I understand what you all saw that I missed. She should have traded families with one dealing with a medical trauma or one in which mom has to work from 5am to 8pm in a factory. That, dear JZ & Bobby, is a real housewife.

    Back to the yard. Beautiful day in the Midwest! Grateful for all I have…and all I don’t have!!

    • I Need A Life! says:

      …oh….and who spends over $400 on dumb ass stickers for a 2 year old? My high school son might possibly need that much for school supplies.

    • mrs peabody says:

      So does she think her husband didn’t work his whole life (not sure if he’s retired now), who does she think was working in that store. My husband owns and runs his family business and I can tell you for a fact business owners work too and we also have to live somewhere. I didn’t even see the show and she p*sses me off.

      • T-Rex says:

        Bawby worked his ass off at that place, I remember hearing he worked upwards of 70+ hours a week getting that store to where it is today, she didn’t do crap except spend his money and whine about how she needed to be famous. His kids work there and one said the only time they saw her there was when the Ho-Wives show filmed there in the first couple of seasons. I remember when the show first started she was whining and complaining that Bawby worked so much and she was alone a lot, yeah, well he had to so he could support your ass! I hope he is retired now, or at least only goes in a few days a week to see how things are going.

    • boston02127 says:

      “pinky ring sleeze bag” hahahhahhaha

  27. T-Rex says:

    Interesting note on the ConviceMulti-FelonNida, in addition to his 8 year prison term, he has to pay 1.9 million dollars in restitution to all those folks he defrauded and this is probably a pittance of what he actually stole. Also, he can’t bankrupt this off his record either, restitution is not something you list in bankruptcy documents. He will have to pay this off, probably for the rest of his life as well. Can’t see this guy making an honest living since he hasn’t ever done it yet!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Will this paying off mandate also be given to TRE AND JUICY?

      • Exit4 says:

        Sure will! They have to bring $$$ to court with them-forget how much. Uncle Sam gets paid first. They’ll never pay everything they owe back 100% but their debt is long sold-they have to deal with collectors amend those people can be relentless!

        • chismosa™ says:

          Thanks Exit.
          I’m sure her fans purchasing her food products and drink line and hair line will be happy to oblige- their own hard-earned money for the felons’ payback necessary. Not a problem 👌

          Hope you are well.

    • mrs peabody says:

      Is this just his bill or will Phadra be on the hook for it too? How does that work? If she divorces him will part of it follow her?

      • ladebra says:

        I don’t know that much about the law, but – Wendy said she sees Phaedra divorcing Apollo because GA has a law that says if your spouse is going to prison for more than 2 years you can get an uncontested divorce. If she does, she will not be on the hook for any restitution.

      • T-Rex says:

        Mrs P the bill is strictly ConvictedMulti-FelonNida’s alone. If Phaekdra had also been indicted she would have been charged with the restitution, she was not and is not liable for it at all. In the Case of the LyinConvictFelonsTheJuicy’s both are on the indictments both PLED GUILTY and both are liable for their damages and restitution, and again they can’t bankrupt that either. They will file bankruptcy to get out of all their other bills that they never paid, plus probably all their legal fees, which I don’t believe they are paying no matter what that lyinbitch said on the show. They probably had to pay a “retainer” to them, but the billing after that retainer I am sure is unpaid as of today.

    I watched Tardy for the Party. I laughed — I cringed.

    • ladebra says:

      Me too! She and Kroy can make cute babies. And her two girls sure have grown up to be typical teenagers. They’ve grown up with cameras around though, so maybe not totally typical. To watch Kroy and Kim, they look like they care about each other and their family. I hope they do. I hope they grow old together, and raise amazing balanced kids into responsible happy adults. And world peace would be nice also. 😜

      • kit9 says:

        What I worry about is finances. Players suffering his injury rarely come back as 100%, stats show and Kroy can’t feel his foot and may never? I just hope he has a few more good years in him because those kids are going to cost a fortune and Kim’s insane spending continues, as usual. She’s going to have her boobs done AGAIN?! She just had them redone! While she was with Kroy, I remember. And, designer luggage for the infants? It’s not cute, it’s so wasteful

        • chismosa™ says:

          She had the boobs done while with him, then probably got pregnant again (and again, and again) – so she probably thinks that because she breastfeeds???

          Aren’t boobs – a good set – supposed to last a good 15-20 yrs? She’s dumb to have gotten them done before finalizing any more pregnancies.
          Just like you’re not supposed to get tummy tucks if you’re planning to get pregnant again.

          I can see her – having had a tummy tuck, and also smoking and drinking a LOT more than people think. Just pumping and dumping. Because “she’s a nurse” so she knows these things. 🙄 infinity. 🌀🌀🌀🌀💩

          I saw that on the previews too Kit. I know what you mean, I hope he gets healed and is able to play. I don’t pretend to follow sports, but it sounded like he was a good player. I can’t see them packing up and moving back to Montana (was it Montana?). He could be a commentator. He’s used to talking in front of cameras. Anyway, they look like they enjoy their life.

      👋👋 Morning Powell! Happy to hear you have sunny skies. It’s almost the weekend! My boss was asking me if I wanted to sit in on a meeting coming up – I was so close to committing and I asked when – he said Sat at his house – without skipping a beat I said nope, I don’t think I need to be there for this first meeting. We both smiled lol. If it was 30 years ago I would have been there with bells on. I’m 63, almost 64, and Saturday is my day. I ain’t got time for that.

    Good morning, I am sore as all go get, had to take the dog that has surgery for a post op check and storms rolled through later, had to get ready for that and lost power, so could not see Leah or LeAnn and Eddie. Couldn’t hardly sleep for other my dog that is petrified of thunderstorms. I feel worse this morning than last night! Ugh!

    As for the blog, HydrangeaHussy turned in OC blogs, but since only 2 women posted, I decided to wait a day. And I think we will have a LeAnn and Eddie blog. Don’t Be Tardy was so good, I might blog it….let me clear my foggy lack of sleep head though!

    I just watched the preview of NY for the 6th time. … Talk about bad table manners! The Brits would be fleeing in horror! I mean, who takes off their leg and slams it on the table before hurling it to the floor! If elbows on the table are a no no, your leg must just be enough to get you uninvited from everything. lol. Who does that? Wait! Production and Aviva’s that’s who!

    definitely would have gotten sent to my room for something like that – I can almost hear JZ whispering in her head – as she is almost completely unbalanced – and no I don’t mean because of her leg! – stop that!!! – having JZ plant her evil little seeds in that brain of hers can only be bad –

    Hello – Rest up TT. be well ♥
    I watched the leann/eddie show and the whole 30 minutes was about Brandi. You’d think with the opportunity of having their own show they wouldn’t mention Brandi at all #DumbAsses

    • PJ says:

      All the reviews I read were bad, plus I read that there was so much Brandi bashing that they couldn’t even show all of it. Interesting. I didn’t watch so I only know what I’ve read.
